QVC POPSUGAR Must Have Box Review Box

On May 29th, the POPSUGAR QVC Special Edition box went on sale (and I believe it sold out on the same day!) I’m so impressed with how quickly this box shipped – I hope POPSUGAR does more collabs with QVC for shipping times alone! (And I’m only half kidding!)

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

QVC POPSUGAR Must Have Box Review Info

The box came with a fold out card detailing the items included.

QVC POPSUGAR Must Have Box Review Glam Glow

GlamGlow YouthMud Tinglexfoliate Treatment – Value $69

This product’s inclusion in the box made the purchase a no-brainer for me. I love GlamGlow masks, and I’m so used to sampling them through subscription boxes I never bothered to look at what the full-size price was. Wow!

This mask is phthalate, paraben and sulfate free – and it works in just 10 minutes. It’s also one of those masks that tightens and tingles as it dries, so you get that reassuring feeling that it is doing something! I like this mask for making my skin feel cleaner and smoother – it does a great job of cleaning pores.

QVC POPSUGAR Must Have Box Review Sunglasses

Foster Grant Scout Aviator Sunglasses – Value $31?

I can’t find these exact sunglasses online, so I’m linking to another pair of Foster Grant Aviator sunglasses from QVC. I was expecting to receive the rope motif ones I linked to, but I prefer this simpler style, so I’m happy!

QVC POPSUGAR Must Have Box Review Mascara

Peter Thomas Roth Lashes to Die For The Mascara – Value $22

I’ve sampled lots of skin care products from Peter Thomas Roth’s line before, but I think this my first makeup item. I’m really excited to try this mascara – it gets great reviews on Sephora, and it is free of just about any ingredient you may want to avoid!

QVC POPSUGAR Must Have Box Review Earrings

Steel by Design Hoop Earrings – Value $18

These earrings will vary for customers – I believe you’ll receive either silver, gold or rose gold colored metal. I don’t normally wear bigger earrings, so these might not be for me – at least they aren’t contributing a lot to the overall value of the box though!

QVC POPSUGAR Must Have Box Review Triple Sec

DryBar Triple Sec 3-in-1 – Value $26

This spray is pretty good – but not good enough for me to buy more of when it runs out. It adds a little texture and volume, with no stickiness, but the scent is a little strong for me.

QVC POPSUGAR Must Have Box Review Brush

Tangle Tweezer – Value $20

This brush/comb works on both wet and dry hair. The base part on the left is for keeping it from getting dusty when not in use. Here are the pieces together:

QVC POPSUGAR Must Have Box Review Comb

QVC POPSUGAR Must Have Box Review Charger

HALO Faux Leather Wrapped Charger Pocket Power 3000 – Value $30

This backup battery charger provides up to 13 hours of talk time before it will need to be recharged – and it works with just about any device that can be charged via USB. (I also like that it comes with a little pouch to keep it together with the cord).

QVC POPSUGAR Must Have Box Review Candy

Hampton Candy Sampler – Value $15?

I’m guessing The Hampton Candy Company is the same company as The Hampton Popcorn Company. I can’t find this candy sampler on their site though, so I’m estimating on value.

I love that this candy set is packaged ready to gift!

Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $231. I think that’s great for a $100 box, and I also like that the value is relatively split amongst the items. (With the exception of the GlamGlow – but that’s fine with me!) I’m not sure if it is fair to compare this to some of POPSUGAR’s other limited edition boxes, but this one doesn’t feel like it has much of a theme to me. Sometimes that’s totally OK though – I’m happy with this purchase, and I’ll buy one again if they partner with QVC in the future.

  1. I missed out on this box but I would really like to but it if anyone wants to sell thanks [email protected]

  2. I got the gold hoops in my box and really wanted rose gold or even silver. Does anyone want to trade?

    • I just got my box today. I would be willing to trade my rose colored earrings for your gold ones for sure.

  3. I bought this box and really loved most of the items. I probably won’t use the sunglasses just not my style. But overall the box was great value. I’m glad I got it.

  4. Willing to switch qvc box for summer limited edition box

  5. If anyone is interested in trading parts of this box for either parts of the entire box of

    • Oops I meant trading parts of this box for either parts of my June beauty fix box or my whole entire june box, let me know.

      • Or June pop sugar box ! As u can probably tell I really want this !

  6. I really wish I would have got this

  7. After just opening everything, I’m really happy with it. I wanted it for the Glam Glow, but as a bonus I get to use everything else, too. I’m somewhat fascinated by the detangler, I’ll have to try it on wet hair. The mascara’s not great, but I can use it daily without being fancy. The hairspray smells good but I’ll probably give it to my mother because she’ll put it to use more than me. The halo looks stylish and I needed a new one anyway. The glasses are nice, a bit smaller than I pictured but flattering on my face. I got silver hoops, which will also go to my mother, because my ears aren’t pierced. The candy will be eaten. Overall, great value.

  8. WOW! Great Box!
    After just getting started a few months ago on sub boxes, I have tried about 10 different ones at least once if not several times (Ipsy for a year now) I have to say that I am so impressed with this box, blows the doors off the CFDA box that I sent back…thank goodness, that was a total lemon. This box has amazing items with such a great price point. I am putting a gift box together for my son, he likes this idea but for a guy, so he will get the Halo, I already have one from QVC and love it. Paid about 30.00 for it too. Thats a third of this box. Works excellent. The aviator sunnies are beautiful and look much more expensive and designer than one would ever think, I think of Foster Grants and think old lady, they must be updating their line up cuz these are so awesome. The Candy box is actually much larger than it looked on TV and gourmet, I am taking them to a family birthday party for my nephews who are turning 7 to snack on. The spray smells so nice, I love it, tried it on 3 day hair, hair doesn’t look so messed up anymore (greasy) LOL, and smells great. The Mascara is lovely and I am running out of FULL size that I like, I use high end stuff from Lancome usually. The earrings are gold, so glad! I wear almost all yellow gold and I need a pair of bigger size but delicate looking hoop earrings…lost one of mine and have needed these for a while! Detangler brush is cool, my daughter in law has super long curly hair, this is going in her stocking. And the best item ever is all mine, the wonderful Glam Glow mask, I am treating myself to a facial this weekend and sit in my bath tub with a glass of wine and some candles….ahhhh, love love love this value and these brands. Best box ever if you have a gift closet, and you need some HIGH end nice go to items. this is just my review, but I am shocked at the value, seriously, shocked for the money spent here. YAY!

  9. A word of warning to those with a nut allergy – the Peter Thomas Roth mascara contains macadamia nut oil.

  10. I’m mixed on the items but there’s a few items there that makes me wish I ended up buying the box after all, lol. The aviators are interesting with the zipper like edging on the top.

  11. Literally any comment I make, it disappears. So FRUSTRATING

  12. The best aviators are at bespoke right now and with the code rescue they are 31.50 for $100 glasses plus a beautiful leather case and cloth. I ordered them for myself after reading Liz review and LOVE THEM. They are still available

  13. I wasn’t excited about this box when I first saw the spoilers, but now I kind of wish I had ordered! those sunglasses are so much better than the ones on the QVC site too!

  14. I really wanted this box but didn’t end up getting it. I wish it was a little less expensive. I think its an amazing box though

  15. My box is on the way and I need new sunglasses. 🙂

  16. I am getting the June box with the Quay
    Australia sunglasses, but from the looks of it I prefer the Foster Grants that are in this box. If anyone wants to swap the sunglasses for the quay ones in the June box let me know!! [email protected]

    • Did you get someone to trade you the aviator for your Quay glasses?

  17. Am really wishing less boxes would include pierced earrings. Other than that, this box looks good.

  18. Just what I wanted from a box: super useful items! I think they hit all the categories, too: tech, food, beauty, accesories! I’d buy another one as well.
