  1. I am happy for people that are pleased with this box. I have faithfully been a PSMH subscriber since September of 2012. Unfortunately for me this month is one of my least favorite boxes ever. I’m pretty disappointed.

    • Thank you Kimberly … I feel the same. I have only been a subscriber for one year. I’m very disappointed. So far PS has been my all time favorite… not very happy with Winter. I am not picky at all.

    • Same here. I am getting it because I missed the cancelation date, but will use nothing except the nut bar. I originally chose the jewelry item and figured if I got the box I would gift it.

    • I am truly sorry if I offend anyone, but I HATE this box!!!! I did not get the cancellation or even a customization alert—until AFTER they mailed it. I am sorry but the TAI necklace they sent is SO UGLY that out of 4 women, no one wanted it. I have seen videos where people loved it, but it’s just cheap looking and made out of cheap material–no way is the price tag justified. The plastic H&B bag, again overpriced cheap material. I have not used a reed diffuser in 5+ years if I wanted one I could find one for $5 at TJ Maxx. The dish??? WHY WHY does EVERY BOX think we want another dish??? Sorry PSMHB, you just made me cancel and I had high hopes for the Winter box. VERY SAD

      • Agreed!!!

      • I 100% agree. I’ve been a subscriber from its beginning and this box is absolutely horrible. I won’t use anything in it and i wouldn’t even gift this crap. Was so excited when it arrived and as i unboxed it i was like wtf is all this random stuff!

    • I threw the entire box away except for the cards.

      • Well that says a lot more about you than the quality of the box.

      • Can you send it my way?

      • If you don’t like the items, you should at least donate them. Tossing them in the garbage is so wasteful aNd careless. There are plenty of charities that will pick up from your house…

  2. Since I got this box I’m hoping I will be blown away by the quality once it’s in my hands.

  3. Soooo, the last two boxes sold out before all the spoilers came out and I was way upset I missed out. This time I snagged one immediately and am SO very disappointed in it. Every one of these items is overpriced and I don’t feel this box is worth anything close to $75. I would have rather bought the BOS to get that necklace. Not happy…..

  4. Eek. A variation of every single one of these items came in previous PSMH boxes. Winter LE 2016 included a diffuser, I have four or five trays from PS, September 2015 contained a far too similar Hudson + Bleecker travel case…and blush, jewelry, and body oil galore over the years. As a recovering sub box addict, I can assure y’all the FOMO is not real. You will see all these items again. Probably next year.

    • Am I the only one that thinks this would be okay for a Popsugar Monthly box but feel ripped off for a quarterly box? The quality & wow is not there!

      • So true, Jen.

      • yes!

        miss monthly so much, wish they would bring back – would 100% do annual sub

      • Agreed – not necessarily a bad box, but there’s just no wow factor. I wanna be wowed with a $75 box.

      • Agree! Nothing to get too excited about…

      • Yes! I wish they still did the monthly boxes feel the quality and selection was better.

      • Yes!!!!! Yes! and Yes! Popsugar has gone way downhill and now charges more for it!

  6. My only complaint is that in the past they would usually send a cookbook in one of the Fall boxes & I would give it to a friend at their yearly party. So I’m a bit disappointed in the lack of cookbook.
    Other than that, it looks OK. Not stellar but not a total dud.

    • I was thinking the same thing (and was really, really, REALLY hoping it would be the new edition of the Gramercy Tavern cookbook that just came out!!). I’m officially not very excited about this box now, I have a feeling most of it will end up on the swap site.

  7. I am overall quite pleased with the box.

    The only think I do not like are those cards. I find them to be gaudy.

    But I am happy with everything else!

  8. I received my box yesterday and really love it. I used the oil twice now and it’s scent is lovely and prevents my winter dry skin. The earrings are tiny but cute. I’m looking forward to trying the fast bar. Love the Rifle cards. Have not unwrapped the reeds yet, but I like most Fragrances. In my opinion, the box was well curated and I’m happy every item was not spoiled.

    • Wow! You think the scent of that oil Is lovely? I personally think it stinks! It smells like straight chemicals. I’m wondering if I got a bad batch because there is nothing lovely about the way mine smells. I’m trying to wash it off now.

      • I agree with you about the scent. It reminds me of insect repellent.

      • I agree!! This box is crap! Some of my oil leaked out bc the lid was not screwed on tightly. Which rly sucks bc I was planning on gifting it. I have no use for a body massage oil, especially one with cinnamon in it! Looking at the spoiler pics I thought the dish was plain silver. I felt pretty stupid once I received it & it’s black & white! Maybe if I fill it with some kind of decor I could use it. The ONLY thing I like is the diffuser!! Not it was 75 bucks!!!

      • Well if you got a bad batch so did I the thing plain out stinks

    • Do you have a sense of smell? The oil smells like rancid 💩! Lovely my 🍑

  9. I thought I had canceled this after the last box but just a shipping notification. I’m so disappointed in this box – and in myself! 😂

    • You’re not alone. In fact, I read your comment and thought I sleep-posted it! Well, I guess now we have lots of hostess gifts and generic gift swap items for the upcoming holidays 😬

      • Lol, so true!

  10. Honestly my first thought was that’s it.. but in all honesty these are high quality items that reed diffuser is one of my favorite brands and it’s very high end the oil is almost the price of the box. I will use everything in the box and I’m happy for the variation of items. so I’m excited 😊

  11. With the exception of the blush these are all things that would collect dust in the back of my closet. What happened? The monthly box was so much better.

    • Yeah, hate to say it but the same for me. Ive noticed ive LOVED the last 2 FALL boxes but none of the others unfortunately. Lovely products n im sure many ladies will enjoy this box, its just not for me n I’m glad i cancelled after the Fall box. I have tons of these things. Enioy ladies n Merry Christmas! Im out.

  12. I miss the monthly Popsugar sub box. This just seems too over priced for what you get. FabFitFun is a better seasonal box in my opinion.

    • I think PS has better quality items but fff has more items I’d actually use – and it’s cheaper (though maybe not once you buy the add-one 😂)

      • AGREE Plus when my box arrived, the bottle of oil And the diffuser was broke! I cannot tell you what a mess I had to try to clean up. The box had a good size oil stain on it before I opened it and I should have gathered what had happened. I opened it anyhow. Ugggggg…. in the trash it all went. I was so pissed. Called them and they supposedly are sending me a replacement box. 2 weeks later, nothing.

    • I totally agree.

      When I saw these spoilers I thought PSMH monthly boxes were back (yippee) because this box’s items are very similar to those in their good ol’ monthly sub boxes. But then I woke up and realized this is one of their new quarterly (and overpriced, IMHO) boxes. 😭

  13. Yawn 🥱

  14. There is no real hero item validating the price of this box

    • There’s not, but that doesn’t bother me because I’m getting hero items in some other boxes, and I really like that I’m not sure whether I’m going to keep or gift most of the things in this box yet. I don’t mind that we’re getting a handful of things with RVs of close to the cost of the box. I’d rather have a couple of $65 items than an expensive skin cream or another blanket because I get those in my other boxes.

  15. Just got my box today and LOVE everything. I was a little skeptical after I saw the spoilers, but it’s such a nice variety of home, beauty and personal items. Quality is really there too, the makeup case was the item I was most afraid of and I absolutely love it! Only thing I’m sad about is that there doesn’t seem to be the normal extra sponsored items. At any rate, pop sugar is truly a case of less for more but what you get in exchange are beautiful and purposeful items that you’ll enjoy using beyond just 1 season.

  16. I’m sorry but those Merci cards look like a floral print that my great grandma would’ve sent. 😂 I do like the diffuser and travel case. The rest is meh for me.

  17. Man I want that TRAY it’s beautiful but I don’t want the box 😂 I only ever got 3 pop sugar boxes but I can’t stop looking at that tray

    • Jenna – if you read this, I’ll be more than happy to send you the tray, no strings. My box is scheduled to arrive on Friday.

  18. Because none of these items feel special. You can get a necklace like that for 15-$20. A tray for 10. Diffuser for $10-15. Blush is easy to come by. The only items to me that are semi interesting are the oil and travel case depending on their quality. When I pay for a box of random items I like to feel like I got the entire boxes value in one or 2 items. $75 is a lot for a box. Fall was the first I joined since they went quarterly. Maybe, hopefully I will like the box more once I get it.

    • Isn’t that true of everything? I can buy a sweater for 12.99 or 120 or 300. I can buy a diffuser at TJ maxx or I can buy one at Nordstrom. Just because I can find an item for cheaper doesn’t mean I want to. I like diffusers but do I buy them for ten bucks at TJ maxx? No. The only places I’ve bought diffusers are in well-curated stores that have one on display I can smell. I don’t go for a dust covered box that I can’t open and smell from a brand exclusively made for TJ maxx and designed to trick the consumer into thinking you’re getting a good deal when really you’re paying for what it’s worth. I’m expecting the one from popsugar is good quality and the scent is chosen to be universally appealing or their favorite scent and I’m expecting it will really fragrance the room! If you want to go rummage around to find a cheaper one be my guest but I’d rather treat myself to one great diffuser and some other high quality items every once in a while than a cart full of crap all the time.

      • 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏 💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯

      • I’m glad you’re happy with your box. I on the other hand am not. I’m simply saying that I don’t think this sub is for me. Fall was great but if they can’t be consistent then I don’t see the value FOR ME since this is a higher priced subscription. There is a reason fall sold out before all of the spoilers were revealed and this one is still available. I understand that curation is a wonderful thing. It’s one of the reasons I do boxes, to try things I may have never tried.

      • Lmao at the idea that Popsugar sends high quality stuff. You are adorable.

  19. Sad this is going to be my first box because I don’t use most of this stuff. I am going to try to sell/swap the diffuser, blush, and tray.

  20. What items are the special extras?

    • There are none this time around, which is really disappointing.

    • Probably no company wants to be part of this company anymore.

  21. Always feel like I am missing something with the mostly underwhelmed comments on the site. I have loved every PS box since they went quarterly. I love that it is curated; if I wanted to pick my own products I would go to a store. Everything here looks quality and I am looking forward to my box!

  22. Sad. And for $75 I’m glad some people are happy. This just looks like it’s thrown together

  23. I signed-up for my first box in September. I wish I could time travel and deleted that order. Only item I like is the silver dish. I don’t see the value in this subscription.

  24. I just want the thank you cards and maybe body oil. A lot of this I wouldn’t even be able to gift

  25. Boring, definitely skipping this one

  26. I don’t understand why most people don’t like the spoilers?? I think it’d be a great box, I like it. It’s a variety of home, beauty and jewelry; all useful things. I wouldn’t be mad at paying $75 for the box.

    • I like it, too. It has a great ‘feel’.

  27. Oh, this is great! so happy I took the plunge. I can see where people might not like some of the items, but for me, my bf and I are getting into massage so the oil will get used (at least sparingly if it’s super strong), the diffuser will be great in my new office (I’m switching to a new one in winter), and I’ll use everything except maybe the thank you cards. Blush is especially pretty. Thanks PS!

  28. Snooze

  29. The point of subscription boxes is to try new things and new brands that you wouldn’t ordinarily try. I’m happy with this box. It has home, skin care, jewelry, and travel covered. That’s a broad range of products. The little tray is not my style but I’m not going to be mad about it. It’ll be good for paper clips or pens on my desk at work. Overall I’m a happy girl. I can’t wait to see what’s in the Neiman Marcus box.

    • You honestly hit the nail on the head with this post. I wish everyone else on this site was more like you and opened minded. Seems like everyone just wants to be mad at what they get. I agree with you 100%!

  30. Decent, but what’s the hero item here?… not that it matters, PSMH charged me back on the 30th.

  31. I would love to swap for the rainbow earrings or necklace if someone doesn’t want theirs!

    • I can swap you mine or sell it as well

      What’s your email?

  32. I will swap the body oil, fragrance disfuser and blush. I have fragrance allergies and contact dermatitis to mica so the blush is out for me . Soooo that’s disappointing for me …. will put on swap sight. Let me know if you are interested….

    • I would definitely take the body oil and diffuser off your hands if I have anything that interests you/that you follow….. I don’t know how to find you until you list….. 🙂

      • Judy I’m on the swap sight as Kimberley miles. I will be on the look out for you!

      • Where is the swap site??

  33. Nice items. I may purchase with a discount on black Friday. Interesting to see that PSMH has featured almost all of these brands before. And there’s not really a hero item either.

  34. This box is not even close to worth $75 for me. I wish I had cancelled but I had FOMO. I am cancelling now.

    • Right? Feeling so underwhelmed

  35. At first I was a little disappointed since I had missed out of the fall box and it was just so “me.”

    However I have to say I really am happy. The curation is so elegant and everything is so usable.

  36. That body oil sounds really nice. I’m happy with this box.

  37. I’m glad that I skipped as nothing really grabs me. Happy for those that like it!

  38. I had skipped PSMH for a year but the fall box brought me back. Glad I stayed for the winter box. I will probably wind up using everything. I don’t normally like body oils but I may give this one a try.

    I had never heard of Kevyn Aucoin but Costco just starting carrying the brand. The blush is $18.99. The brushes look very luxe but are not cheap even on the Costco site.

    • He’s from my home state, Louisiana. He’s deceased now; but, was a beauty/makeup visionary. The products are top-notch.

  39. I cancelled. The only things I like are the diffuser and travel case. Not enough to warrant the price for me. I hope everyone that gets it loves it.

    • agree – box often better in person!

      think the rainbow jewelry is throwing me off!

    • So I cancelled, but got charged and was sent shipping confirmation after receiving confirmation that I cancelled, ugh. Oh well, I guess I will gift what I won’t use.

  40. oooh, I love body oils! I like the diffuser and thank you cards too, looks like a pretty nice box to me 🙂

    • I’m probably in the minority here, but this Winter box looks better to me than the Neiman Marcus box, which costs almost 4X as much. I would use everything in this box. I think I’ve talked myself into getting it! 😬

  41. Skipping

  42. I wasn’t going to go spoiler free but I couldn’t resist. The box is pretty good. I can use the diffuser, oil, and thank you cards. It’s missing a winter “wow” product. I always get more excited and end up liking the products more once in my hands. But this is not the usual PopSugar standard of excellent citations.

  43. Skipping this one

  44. Nice. I hope this is in Better Than Black Friyay!!!

  45. Looks like a luxe box. Love it.

  46. Beyond the diffuser, there is nothing in this box I would have bought on my own. But – I think this box feels really luxurious and well thought out. I am happy to have one headed my way.

  47. this may be 1st black friday not getting box

    • Is there no promotinal items this time ?

  48. Skip.

  49. …….. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS BOX….. wonderful curation….. great for a few gifts….. but only if I can bear to part with anything……… 🙂 … Great job PS!!!!!!!!!!! Body oil………YES…….. the diffuser, YES please …… love love love …. so happy with this one!!

  50. Well, well, well, what do we have here? A reed diffuser – don’t need one and I am picky with scents. I don’t have a lot of occasions to send a thank you card. I prefer body milk or body lotion to oil on any day. Oils tend to be greasy. The first spoilers were better for me. Still happy.
