POPSUGAR Must Have Box January 2015 Review + Coupon
POPSUGAR Must Have is a monthly lifestyle subscription box for women. Each month they send a mix of items from categories like beauty, fashion, food, fitness, home, etc.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes). I also have a POPSUGAR Must Have subscription that I pay for, but my box hasn’t shipped yet. (Since POPSUGAR sent me this box for review, I’m giving away my January box to one lucky My Subscription Addiction reader – giveaway at the end of the post!)
The Subscription Box: POPSUGAR Must Have
The Cost: 39.95 a month
The Products: “Must Have” items for women selected by POPSUGAR editors. (Fitness, Home, Beauty, Food, and more)
Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
Jack + Lucy Pom Pom Hat – Value $32
I love the look of a slouchy beanie, but for me the faux fur topper on this one seemed to not look quite right with the extra fabric at the top. I tried it with just rolling up the band once, and now it’s perfect – I love it!
KeepCup Brew 12-Ounce Reusable Coffee Cup – Value $26
This reusable coffee cup is made with tempered glass, and it is dishwasher safe and BPA free! The pink band is removable/adjustable, so you can position it to where it works best for you. (I haven’t tried it with a hot beverage yet, but I’m hoping that band is wide enough to prevent touching the glass!)
ToGoSpa Eyes – Value $12.50
These are paraben-free and scented with lavender oil – one of my favorite scents. I haven’t been super impressed with eye masks I’ve tried in the past, but I’m going to give these a try. (They recommend chilling them in the refrigerator before application for a more refreshing experience).
Manduka eQua Hand Towel – Value $16
This is one of those microfiber towels that always stays a little grippy for workouts (or I guess household chores too). I like that they included a fitness item in this box (seems appropriate for January), and I think this is a versatile pick in the fitness category that could work well even for someone who isn’t interested in fitness items.
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream – Value $28
This cream is wonderful! It’s paraben, sulfate and phthalate free, and great for sensitive skin. It’s designed for both face and body, but so far I’ve only tried it as a body cream. I love how quickly it absorbs, so I may try it as a face cream too!
Skin Jewel Tattoos – Value $18 (Sponsored by Empire)
I know jewelry tattoos are the new on-trend item, but I just don’t feel like I can pull them off. Maybe I’ll try one of the more subtler gold bracelets though. (I received similar tattoos in another box before, and gave them to my friend heading to Vegas – apparently they were the perfect poolside accessory!)
Also – has anyone seen the show Empire? And recommend it? From what I’ve seen it gets good reviews, and I’m in need of a few new shows while I wait for Game of Thrones, House of Cards and Walking Dead to return!
General Mills Nature Valley Protein Granola – Value $3.49
I couldn’t eat this because of food intolerances, but my husband is always happy to help with reviewing the food portion of POPSUGAR Must Have boxes! He loved this granola!
Verdict: I think this is one of POPSUGAR’s best January boxes. There are quite a few practical yet special items which makes it a very usable and exciting box for me. So far my favorite item is the beanie (I have been wearing it the whole time while writing this review).
