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, and home.
Super exciting news - this box is big and it is jam packed full of items!
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
ACTIVE DEAL: Get $20 off your first box!
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.
The themes this month are de-stress, cozy, bedtime. (AKA: my favorite words.)
So many items in this month's box that the fold out card needed an extra section!
Now, on to the items!
Jack + Lucy Pillow and Blanket Set - Value $49.99
How cute is this travel set? I love the black and white stripe - so chic!
The pillow has a hidden zipper with a removable insert:
This pillow is firm and would be great as a lumbar support pillow even when you aren't traveling.
Cute in an office, too, right?
The material is a 100% soft acrylic knit.
It measures about 31 by 46 inches long.
The instructions say only to spot clean with a damp cloth (no machine wash or dry clean), but I've had luck washing acrylic knit before, so I might through this in the laundry if it ever needs it.
UPDATE: Here is another picture to help show scale:
Perpetual Shade Dream On Sleep Mask – Value $39
If you're wondering how a sleep mask can cost $39, I've been using Perpetual Shade sleep masks every night for years now, and can tell you that they are worth every penny to me!
This sleep mask definitely feels luxe. The fit is comfortable, the band is wide and stays put, the 100% cotton fabric is soft and breathes, and it is oversized to help block out any light. I’m a super light sleeper who needs total darkness, a sound machine going, etc, and I need a quality sleep mask, too, and I’m very impressed with this mask.
I know this product may not be for everyone, but if you’re someone who needs a sleep mask I think you will love this. And maybe if you’ve only sampled cheap sleep masks before, this could be a game changer! (And at the very least, it will be helpful for travel.)
If you are a super light sleeper like me, please comment with any sleep tips/hacks - I need all the help I can get!
FlashPatch Restoring Night Eye Gels 5-Pack – Value $20
At first when I saw these I thought I’d have to wear them overnight but fortunately, that is not the case! You just need to wear them 5 minutes before bed, let the excess serum absorb once you remove them, and you are good to go!
I love a nice relaxing bedtime routine, and these were a perfect addition. They left my skin feeling hydrated and I had no issues of the eye gels slipping off like I have had with some other brands.
Lollia Dream White Tea & Honeysuckle Shower Gel - Value $22
First, this packaging! I love the metallic gold detail! Sadly, this scent just wasn't for me. I liked the formula - the body wash lathers nicely and doesn't dry out skin, but the Honeysuckle scent was a little too powdery for me.
And this item came with a coupon for $10 off your next order of $50 or more:
Nature's Bakery Double Chocolate Brownie - Value $1.49
If you are vegan and have been waiting for a POPSUGAR snack/sweet you can enjoy, this is your brownie!
The brownie is chewy, decadent, but not too sweet. Pretty much perfect.
Framebridge Promo Card - $30 Discount
Framebridge is a custom online frame shop. You upload the picture of your choice, pick the frame, preview it, then you're good to go!
Great news - custom framing starts at $39, so you can get the photo of your choice framed for only $9. But how do you choose....
Now, time for special extras:
K-Cups as a bonus item? Yes to that! All day every day! Eric and I aren't too particular about our K-Cup brand (we usually do Starbucks, Trader Joes, or Whole Foods), but the Donut Shop is a solid contender, too.
And these K-Cups come with a pretty incredible coupon offer, too:
Normally, I don't get too excited about included coupons, but 50% off any Keurig of your choice?! We have a Keurig at home and at our office, but I have a feeling we'll either use this to upgrade one of our older versions, get an extra for the bedroom, or as a gift for the holidays.
Each box comes with a unique one time use coupon. Expires 12/31/2017.
Quaker Overnight Oats in Toasted Coconut & Almond Crunch - Value $1.60
I didn't know Quaker made overnight oats! You just add your preferred milk, put the lid back on, then store in the fridge the night before breakfast.
And there's no dairy in the ingredients so you can make this dairy free!
I'm gluten-free and don't eat oats, but I can tell you the toasted coconut smells amazing!
Aquaphor Advanced Therapy Ointment Body Spray - .86 oz Value $2.30
I've used the Aquaphor ointment before, so I was excited to give this a try - it's pretty amazing. Imagine getting a super fine mist version of the ointment that you don't have to rub in - that's how I would describe it.
Verdict: I can't believe how many items are in this box! I love the cozy/sleep theme, too - everything is perfect for me with the exception of the body wash. (And that's just a scent preference.)
And this box has a value of $142.50! (That's not counting the value of any of the coupons included, and I personally will be using both the Framebridge and the Keurig coupons, so that adds even more value for me.)
