POPSUGAR Must Have Box December 2016 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.
FYI – as of today (12/5), this box is still available! If you sign up now – it will be your first box! (It will likely sell out quickly, though, so I recommend subscribing asap if you are interested!)
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
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, and what themes inspired the box.
Now, onto the items!
Odeme Catchall + Ring Dish Set – Retail Value $67
Each piece comes in its own pink box with gold foil embossed text – I love it! (Perfect for gifting or keeping!)
Odeme Ring Dish – Value $23
The dish measures 4” x 4” x 2″
The dishes are porcelain and have a minimalist black line design on the edges.
Odeme Catchall – Value $44
This tray measures 8.5” x 5.5” x 1″
POPSUGAR recommends using these on your vanity or bar. I think I’m going to use mine on my desk to keep all the products I’m sampling in order!
Here are the trays with items so you can get a better sense of scale:
These are one of my favorite POPSUGAR items ever! (I have a thing for practical yet special home items!)
Bauble Bar Snowfall Pendant – Value $28
I appreciate that this necklace comes in a bag ready for gifting in case you don’t want to keep it!
This is a POPSUGAR Must Have exclusive design!
The necklace chain measures about 28 inches long, and the pendant measures about 1 inch across:
While I normally prefer gold jewelry, I appreciate that POPSUGAR sends silver jewelry sometimes, too! (I know from reading comments on MSA that a lot of subscribers want more silver jewelry!)
Here it is paired with a sweater:
And this necklace also came with a 20% off coupon for your next Bauble Bar purchase:
Mane Message Date Night Bobby Pins – Value $10
I’m in holiday mode, so as soon as I saw these I thought, “Stocking Stuffer!”
This set includes:
- Antique Gold Glitter Bobby Pin
- Peach Enamel Bobby Pin
- Coal Glitter Bobby Pin
I’m not much of a bobby pin wearer, but these were so cute that I had to try them out.
Mane Message has some great styling photos, too. And this set also comes with a coupon for 20% off your next Mane Message order:
(Expires February 1st, 2017.)
Winky Lux Lip Pill in Bunny – Value $14
How cute is this packaging?
The lipstick formula is a matte, cruelty-free, paraben-free, gluten-free and made in the USA!
Here it is swatched:
I love the pigment and the cranberry color – perfect for the holidays! (And this formula is surprisingly moisturizing for a matte lip color!)
This jar includes everything you need to make 13 cookies – just add 5 tablespoons of butter, 1 egg, and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla.
I think this would make a great hostess gift, and it’s also perfect to have on hand for baking a quick treat. (It’s a good pantry staple too – this jar is good through December 2017.)
Of course, we had to bake them immediately! (Good news, they were super easy to make and only took 8-10 minutes in the oven.)
My husband described these as some the best chocolate chip cookies he’s ever had!
And Sisters Gourmet included a coupon for 20% off your next order.
(Expires January 30th, 2017.)
Dessange Top Coat Serum – Value $12
This is a very lightweight serum (almost watery) designed to add shine to your hair. I tried this on both damp and dry hair and I was pleased with the results. The scent is fruity and not too strong, and it added shine to my hair without any greasiness or wearing my hair down. (And I only needed one pump of product per application, so this bottle should last months!)
And it is safe for color-treated hair!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $138! I think that’s great for a $39.95 box (and hopefully you grabbed a Black Friday deal and got this box at an even better price!) My favorite item in this box is the tray set, and that alone is worth more than the cost of the box!
I bought gift subscriptions for all the women on my holiday list this past week, and I’m really excited that this will be their first box. A home item that can be used for entertaining, a holiday treat, plus beauty and jewelry/accessory items seem like the perfect mix for a December box. (And while the necklace isn’t something I would have picked out for myself, it’s growing on me!)
