  1. I’m shocked for lack of a better word how much some say they love it, home run, best box since..In the words of Scooby Doo Huh?!
    I received mine, today & was like Now I remember why I canceled. This was my 2nd time around after several so so boxes. I know, everyone has different taste. My mom said the gluten free bites taste horrible. And only 1 makeup item? The lip gloss is one of those crank styles. I just wasn’t impressed at all for what they charge they can come up with something better than this. For me it’s not worth the price & hv a box full of items I don’t like. I could get 3 or 4 boxes I would rather try my luck that way I get Boxy Charm, Sephora, ipsy, glossybox, birchbox, & Several for my dog
    Sorry to be rambling & ranting Im just looking at this big box of “I hate it all” as I type.

  2. Anyone who wants to just sell the whole September PSMH box at the regular price just email me, I’ll pick it up for my daughter for Christmas she will love all of this months box!!

  3. is anyone else missing an item from their box? My lip gloss wasn’t included. 🙁

  4. This hair mask is one of my favorites! This is good timing since my jar was getting low. I also love the idea of a mini lint roller I can throw in my bag. I’m pretty sure I’m going to cancel the couple makeup only boxes I have and just do PopSugar and FabFitFun. Both are way more bang for your buck in my opinion.

  5. I just looked around for a picture of the hat. I guess the 80s are coming back, but I’m more of a true “wide-brimmed” kind of gal. I saw it and thought Boy George or Madonna. Oh well. Everything else is kind of meh. I have received or purchased so many reds lately, but I’m not fond of lip gloss anyway. The lint roller should be nice. The rest will be given away. My sister will be happy.

    • That is so funny…I immediately thought Boy George, as well! I remember the “new wave” kids in my high school graduating class of 1985 wearing similar hats. It might have worked at 17, but I’m not sure that at 48 I can pull it off… 😉

      • Yes you can girl! I’m 50 and I’m totally going to wear the hat this fall, lol
        I’m a child of the 80s so it’ll be fun. My 22 year old daughter will probably share it w me

    • Lol tooo funny my first comment was that i would not wear that hat because it was a boy George hat and i would think about that song everything (do you really want to hurt me, do you really want to make me cry) i think they do lol it’s supposed to be bi so I’m guessing it is for either sex. My kids however will want it as long as they don’t act like boygeorge or Madonna haha

    • OMG now I can see is Boy George circa 1985! LOL! That is all I can think about now! 🙂

  6. Wow! I am totally in love with this box! I bought it based on the inspirations. There is not a product in the box I won’t love! I love red lip gloss, the mani kit is so cute, I LOVE coconut and always am looking for a good hair treatment, and I can’t wait to wear the hat (I am a huge hat wearer during the colder months). And the lint roller is the cherry on the cake! This is the best PopSugar box since the holiday 2014 one. I am so excited!

    • Did you like the gluten free bites? My mother said they were horrible

  7. SO excited about this box! I actually had cancelled Popsugar but went ahead and resubscribed today. Been wanting a similar hat for a while now and everything else is just a bonus. Not sure if the lipgloss will look good on me or not, but I can always pass it on to a friend if not.

  8. Ho.lee. COW!!! Another home run from PS after a stellar August box. This is fantastic! You have whimsical/fashion-y with the hat, practical yet fun w/the super-cool lint roller and cute little mani kit, which I have been needing badly. I ordered one from Sephora that I would thought would work and it’s very nice but too bulky for my bag, this one seems perfect. I won’t use the hair mask because I have a pixie and any damage gets chopped away every 5 weeks but I have plenty of friends who would love to try a bucket of yummy hair goodness. And a fiery red gloss that I’d never try on my own but looks beautiful. Cannot wait to get this box of goodness.

  9. love it! it’s a Perfect birthday month box ^^. Can’t wait until my unboxing ^^

    • Happy Birthday month! ?

  10. This box feels very Virgo to me so seems fitting for September

    • I totally agree, Mattie!

  11. I have that conditioner on my Sephora wishlist right now so this is perfect! I was already pretty excited for the hat so everything else is a bonus. Yay!!

  12. I’m still on the fence with the hat but all of this is useful to me and stuff I wouldn’t really buy for myself so I think it’s a win. The Smith and Cult lacquers are gorgeous and the packaging is divine. The hair mask is so useful and good quality too! Between this and Fabfitfun I’m looking forward to fall boxes!

  13. Not feeling this box. I can’t pull off the hat and the rest is just meh. Starting to think it’s time to stop this subscription. Last month was great, but it was the only hit for me in many months.

    • My thoughts exactly. Last month was finally decent after a few major flops, so I had my hopes set high for this box; I was really expecting good boxes for fall, so I might wait until October’s box to unsub.

  14. This box is like a big tease for me. It’s so close and yet not quite a hit for me.

    Much will depend on if the hat fits my big head… and if I can pull it off – two big questions about which I am dubious.

    Love Smith & Cult but that color could be a big fail for me. Googled swatches tell me it’s either cherry red or hot pink. If it’s more hot pink, I’m not even gonna try it. It WILL be bad on me.

    I could really use a hair mask right now! Alas, I’ve tried that one and it seriously did nothing for me. At all. Bummer.

    I could use a new mani set. … Except I don’t use cuticle scissors. Don’t cut your cuticles, people! I hope it’s a good nail file!

    I’m most excited for the lint roller (sounds promising! it gets good reviews on The Container Store.)

  15. I’m just not that into this box lately. My swap board is full of PSMH which is a sign to cancel imho. They don’t seem to have a defined target audience which is why this is so hit and miss for me. Oh well, my six month sub ends next month.

  16. This box makes me sad. I look ridiculous in hats, I cannot stand coconut, I have a weird phobia to nail files of any sort, I don’t have the patience to use a hair repair, I constantly lick off anything I put on my lips and my fiance just broke up with me and got the cats, so I have no need for a lint roller.
    And after re-reading that, I guess I should not be surprised he called it off. Way to bring down my spirits Popsugar. 🙁

    • *times when I wish there was a Like/Love button*

    • no no no, don’t be doubting yourself. you are a normal person who does not like hats or happen to like coconut. you are a busy person who does not have time right now for hair repair and likes your nails a certain way. you don’t have cats. like the rest of us your lip gloss does not stay on forever (especially if it is delicious). this box just is not for you. the next one will probably be a better fit

      • Thanks Amy. I’m a crazy mess of emotions right now and I was super looking forward to this box…after I picked it up from my ex’s of course. Ugh, can we just gather all PSMH subscribers and have a weekend out? I need something in my life right now that is different (and affordable, as I am now looking for my own place) 🙂

        • Bre, chin up! I bet in no time, you will have a better boyfriend, all the cats or dogs your heart desires, no coconut in any box. Besides, you need a boyfriend who will lick the gloss off your lips so you don’t have too.
          We’ve all been there and 99.99999% of the time, I know it seems so hard right now but you are tougher than you think and you will move on to bigger and better things!

          • Lol! lol! Amen sister! She’s so right Bre! Chin up! But yes, I so agree about a night out. Need one myself. It would be cool to have a “MySubscriptionAddiction Posters Meet & Greet”. There are many who I could see being great friends.

        • I agree with NellieBelle– Your comments were hilarious, so you have kept your humor. A better guy will come along.

    • Well, I actually that was pretty hilarious and showed a good wry sense of humor. If he broke up with someone this funny, then he is an idiot with no taste.

    • You are being silly, right? The boyfriend comment was so funny!

      • If you’re talking to me, everything I said is actually 100% true. Maybe I put a humor twist to it, but it’s all accurate. On the plus side of things, I’m 30 living in my parents basement so I’m bound to find a lucky guy or gal in no time.

        • After a breakup at 36 I moved into my parents house for about 9 months. It was the last thing I wanted to do but the best thing I did. I got to save every penny, buy a home and have the most wonderful spouse in the world. I have faith everything is meant to be as it is. Have faith girlfriend!

        • Hold your head up it will work out always does. It’s easier to be negative than positive. But to be positive even when you feel like being negative will end up with self determination and motivation which will result in positive changes and all done by you!! You’re line in a million nobody else is like you and you shouldn’t settle for nothing.

          • You all are sweet. I really appreciate it. I am now thinking about starting a blog and/or youtube channel about something. Actually, I tried once but I did not figure anyone would read/watch it, but you all have given me the confidence to do it. It will be awesome and probably make no sense. It may also have a lot of cussing (cursing?) because I am not very lady like. I welcome your thoughts because I really need to find direction in my life right now! Thanks ladies, you guys really don’t know how much you are helping me right now.

    • I’m really sad to hear your news. When my ex and i separated fixing my hair or putting on lipstick was the last thing on my mind. Save the money you spend on POPSUGAR and do something out of the ordinary. It’s the best way to get out of a rut. Go on Groupon and find a deal on skydiving and just go for it! It’s scary but it’ll change you… For the better.

  17. I LOVE this box. Everything is so useful.

  18. This box is a complete win for me. Everything in the box will be used except the lip lacquer.

    • I feel the same way Crystal!!

  19. When will be the full spollers of the Limited Addition box?

  20. Makes me want to sign up again!

  21. Oh I like this box! I can definitely use the hair mask, the hat, the lint roller, and the mani kit – pretty much everything I can use. I loved the hat I got from the Rachel Zoe box way back when and I am looking forward to this one. Hats are kind of out of my comfort zone, but in the fall and winter they are a necessity and I got compliments on my Rachel Zoe hat.

  22. Still glad that I cancelled my monthly plan. I think PopSugar needs to step up their game.

    • AGREE!! Mostly because I don’t wear hats — if I did I guess this is a cute one. The lip color looks summery and unwearable by a lot of people (including me). And I have so much Briogeo from Birchbox this box would not have been a hit for me. I really want to want Popsugar but I don’t see anything really interesting for me anymore.

  23. I think this box is perfect. Resubscribed and glad I didn’t miss this box like I missed out on August. The lint roller and manicure kit are perfect for work emergencies. Love it all because the brands are all on point.

  24. I’ll swap the hat but pretty happy with everything else!

  25. Yep. Traveling next month. Lint roller for the win!!

  26. So thankful my sub is over!

  27. Well, I’m most excited about the lint roller and the mani kit, as I try to keep both those things in my purse and have been wanting better versions of them. So yay for those. I kind of hate that Briogeo, though. It does not work for my hair at all – my $6 drugstore daily conditioner does more for my hair. I’ve finally managed to grow my ill-advised pixie out past my shoulders, so I’ll have fun playing around with hats again.

  28. Not my favorite, but with PopSugar’s amazing value month after month, I’m not going to complain!

    But seriously, who else adored February’s and April’s boxes? I wouldn’t mind some more books, home goods, kitchen stuff, or gift cards 🙂

    • February was definitely my favorite! If they put out more boxes like that, I’ll sign back up!

    • LOVED February!!

      • I agree! I canceled a few weeks ago – this box is just not me anymore. I would have to see a couple back-to-back great months to reconsider. The things other people tire of (candles, body butter, stationery) I love. ?

  29. Man. The boxes have been duds for me lately. 🙁 I would swap this whole box except I do kind of want that lint roller. Ha!

  30. The past couple months are a total miss for me. Overall value of the box seems to be declining IMO. I think I’ll give it another month and if it doesn’t turn around, I’m going to be cancelling my subscription.

  31. i unsubscribed about six months ago. every month i look at the boxes and want to renew my subscription, but they keep leaving me disappointed. there’s nothing of value (in my opinion) in this box.

  32. Thank goodness for the hat or else this box would have been a total bust for me. I have so many hair masks and lip glosses. The snack looks decent. Last month’s was awful.

    • Last month’s box was incredibly popular on the swap site and the forum; I was happy with everything and kept most of it. They cannot please everyone.

      • I meant last month’s food item was awful. I loved everything else in last month’s box. I agree, they cannot please everyone.

        • Oh, sorry! I am still recovering from the horror of Little Lace Box’s fake chocolate bar monstrosity (I mean seriously, it nearly choked me) so PS’s food was far back in my brain. My 9 year old ate all the popcorn. He adored it, so yeah, I can see how the more developed palates of grown ups could find cookies and cream popcorn awful!

          • I liked the popcorn! Lmao! I think I’m the only one though

      • I think she’s saying that last month’s snack was terrible, and I would have to agree. The rest of the box was great though.

    • FINALLY someone who didn’t like last month’s gross Oreo popcorn. It seemed to me like everyone liked it.

  33. Frankly, I love it. I have been wanting the full size Briogeo mask for months now. The hat is awesome and everything else is useful. I am glad I resubbed.

  34. Everything will get used, it’s a nice box in that way, but I think I might be most excited about the lint roller ?

  35. Not exciting and I am swapping the hat, but darn if I cannot use every bit of this- especially the nail kit for my kids’ nails. I was about to buy one!

  36. Does anyone know what color the Smith and Cult lip lacquer is? I hope it’s not another red. Has anyone tried this brand and liked it?

    • It’s a “sheer, cheery red flecked with fine-milled gold shimmer”. I have two of the pink shades (sonnet and bubbles) and I like them a lot. I’m glad to add this one to my collection. Sheer reds are more wearable, so at least they went with that?

    • I think it is sheer red w/ gold shimmer. Nice brand, I have a couple of glosses from S&C.

    • Based on the swatched I just googled, it’s either a sheer cherry red or a hot pink. I’ve read good things about the product, but haven’t tried it myself yet.

    • I’m so sick of getting reds, but this one is really pretty and sheer
