We have TWO spoilers for the Spring POPSUGAR Must Have box! And both of them are selection items! If you are already a subscriber, you can log in to your account to select which options you want. And if you are a new subscriber, you’ll be able to pick your items after you subscribe!

New subscribers can use coupon code MSA20 to save $20 off of the Spring POPSUGAR Must Have box, too! (Regularly $75 a box.)

Here’s the first spoiler:

Bluma Project Luna Necklace in your choice of Sand or Lagoon – Retail Value $75

This playful, three-tiered, tasseled and beaded necklace is the perfect pop for any outfit. Subscribers get to choose between two rich, dusty colorways: Sand or Lagoon. The brand works with a women’s collective in India to craft beautiful jewelry while creating sustainable incomes for artisans. Made from soft acrylic thread and brass beads, this necklace goes from choker length to as long as 20” around with an adjustable chain closure. It’ll be your new favorite go-to Spring accessory.

Here’s the second spoiler:

The Book Club Anti Blue Light Lenses – subscribers have the choice between 4 styles – Retail Value $40-$50

Not only are these glasses cute and on trend, but the lenses have also been shown to cut down blue-light absorption by 30 percent, limiting overexposure to the blue light emitted from screens and indoor lighting around the clock. The design helps to prevent digital eye strain, which typically begins around the two-hour mark of using those screens. Cutting out blue light can improve sleep and reduce eye strain. Subscribers get to choose between four chic styles — being a four-eyes never looked so good.

Here is a closer look at each frame:

Bothering Sights in Gold

Al The Chemist in Sand

The Snatcher in Black Tie

The Art of Snore in Cellophane

What do you think of the spoilers? Which versions are you picking? Let me know if you have any questions about the items – I have them all in hand!

I’ve been a subscriber to Popsugar since there second box and I canceled today. It’s rather sad but these three spoilers are not worth it to me.

Christine

According to my history, I’ve also been a subscriber since 2014, even the sometimes questionable Neiman boxes. I’ve usually found a use for most everything; but these two customizations were the deal breaker for me. I canceled today.

I’m thinking of replacing it with another similar quarterly box. Any suggestions?

Carol

Take a look at JourneeBox…tremendous quality at Kevia!

Deborah

The More I look at the necklace the more I like it I like the beige one. And do not have those type of glasses. Starting to seem like A good box

Pam

The negativity is ridiculous. It’s a box of random stuff to use and share.
I’m excited. It’s just a little something that arrives at my workplace when I least expect it. I gift what I dont need immediately to coworkers and keep what I like.

Laura

Totally understand where you’re coming from, and while I agree some ppl here are next level…the criticism isn’t baseless (not to mention this particular sub is pricey as sin)

PJ

Just cancelled. The lack of communication with subscribers about the spring box delay (shipping much later than in prior years) and that necklace didn’t give me much hope for the rest of the box. Better ways to spend my cash.

Joyce

I don’t know if I should go ahead and get this box or not. I am on the fence. Does anybody have even a wild guess what the other items in this box might be? I have loved all the other boxes I have gotten in the past year, but this one seems off somehow

Jessi

Love the blue light glasses, since taking antioxidants, my vision has improved enough to ditch my prescription glasses. These will be great for my smaller face size too.

I’m not sold on the necklace. It’s a bit extra for the styles popsugar usually sends out. IMO it doesn’t really fit their brand.

Anna

How disappointing! I wondered if the box was grinding to a slow halt and it seems it is. If they don’t come out with a much better spoiler before March 8th I am going to cancel. I have been with them since 2014. What a shame!

Angela

Dang. I was really looking forward to this spoiler. I love Popsugar. Had to go cancel right away though. Just definitely not for me at all.
I also cancelled Rachel Zoe because I only wanted the sunglasses and wouldn’t mind the beauty. Kind of sad to just be getting Fabfitfun this time around, but my wallet is happy!

Carol

Just a thought, have you checked out Journeebox? They may work for some who want a change

karolyn

Carol, I just checked out journee box, it looks good! Do you have a referral code, I would use it, it says you would get an extra gift.

lisa klironomos

Too bad not excited about the spoilers. Glasses would be great but i need readers.
That necklace so ugly what where they thinking. This will be my last box if this is as good as the spring box gets. Bummer

Victoria

Just cancelled. Realized I won’t use either of these, so odds are I won’t be able to justify the cost of the box. Am I missing something though, are people assuming this box will be going out of business soon just because of these two disappointing spoilers, or am I totally missing something here?

Cynthia

So glad for these spoilers, I was trying to make myself like the necklace but the shades no one in my family can use so I canceled. It’s to much money on the line to not like the first 2 spoilers.

Chris

SO glad I cancelled my subscription.

Kathy S Piccini

Whatta shame. I got my first PS box in September 2018 because that Fall box was fantastic. Bought 2 of those in fact. The Winter 2018 was just “ok” for me tho I dont think I’ve actually used ANY of it. Cancelled. Bought this past Fall 2019 box with the real leather handbag, pretty ring n the lovely tea diffuser (imma tea drinker) n liked that one as well. But in 5 seasons only the 2 Fall boxes “wowed” me. So glad I never went annual.

LP

I contacted them to let them know my disappointment and most of the MSA community. Said they need to either get better items or let us skip. This was the response: “Thanks for reaching out. We’re sorry to hear about this. Unfortunately we do not allow skipping of boxes. We do hope you enjoy the other items in the box! Let us know if you have any other questions.”

Joyce

Well what is the remainder of the box?

Ida Dine

I contacted them as well. They said I could give the items I didn’t like as gifts. They also indicated I should give the rest of the items in the box a chance once they have arrived. Sounded like these may be the only spoilers??

azdesertgrl

I assumed they would not allow skips, so I cancelled after YEARS of being a PMH subscriber. 🙁

melissa g

Easy pass

judy

RIP PSMH 🙁

Jessica

Does anyone know if you can skip a box? Or do you have to just flat out cancel?

Alice

Cancel

Katy

No to be that girl, but… that is the fugliest necklace I have ever seen.

Raquel G.

😂 I thought literally the exact same thing when I saw it!!!! I love a good mean girls reference!! 🤣😂

Melissa

lmao yeah

Cheryl W

I canceled after the first expensive box.. The products are just not worth it.. I am so glad I did!! I got an email about updated spoilers and thought I would look to see if the box is still as bad as the first one and it is.. Popsugar went way down after they upped their price so much.. (more that double for me because they charge shipping and I live in illinois!) That tassel necklace is hideous and I wear glasses and have to even wear prescription glasses so those RV glasses would never work for me at all.. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO glad I canceled long ago!!! I am sticking with FFF and Causebox.

Barb

I totally agree. Just cancelled after maybe three years. It’s gotten way too expensive for what they give.

Kim

Wow. What a hot mess.
This used to be my favorite box
Now I just shudder

MagzC

Canceled. Awful, horrible, bad and ew!

Elizabeth

I’ve been a subscriber since 2014 (including almost all the LE boxes) and just canceled. Actually low-key shocked this box is so bad and hope it’s not a trend. Not worth the risk when these appear to be the “hero” items. I can live with tassels; just not this necklace and for that ridiculous “RV,” and I have two pair of blue light glasses for work already that are actually kind of cute for what they are. I had PRK on my eyes in the mid ’00s; otherwise, these would be useless for those who need glasses to see.

Meg

Okay, I think I found what’s caused the changes/issues with this latest PSMH BOX…

Group Nine — which owns The Dodo, Thrillist, NowThis, and Seeker digital properties– acquired PopSugar in an all-stock deal last October that reportedly valued the lifestyle purveyor at $300 million. After the acquisition, PopSugar’s founders, the husband-and-wife duo Lisa and Brian Sugar, joined Group Nine’s board of directors.

Coco

But I thought these boxes were curated way in advance (a year, maybe?) Which I believe, considering all the vendors they have to negotiate with, and the competition since the subscription box world has exploded.

Regardless, money talks- massive cancellations hopefully will get their attention.

Janet

So… most companies you think you are subscribing too are actually media brands owned by big media companies. Rachel Zoe is owned by Bustle. Allure by Condé Nast. Robb Vices is from Robb Report, owned by Penske Media. This is just one, teeny tiny itty bitty piece of the picture for these guys called Consumer Revenue. Most of these companies do this as a fun aside to attract middle of America consumers, in a time when their other main revenue streams are declining. Still, advertiser’s spend millions of dollars with these companies every year compared to your $75. You are complaining into a vacuum.

Melissa

I think you’re correct- I’m guessing the buyout negotiations started about the same time as the curation for the winter and spring boxes. There would have been very little incentive to curate a good box since the fallout wouldn’t hit until after the sale of the company, when it’d be someone else’s problem. The new owners get to brush off the negative feedback as poor decisions by the old staff, and the previous owners get that little bit of extra income from negotiating a super cheap box. Everyone’s happy except for the poor schmucks that just renewed their annual subscription…

Meg

These spoilers are so confusing, especially for a spring box. The necklace might be more at home in a summer box, although still a very specific taste. And the glasses seem more for Fall when days get shorter and people might be spending more time inside with their computers. But for Spring shouldn’t we be celebrating warmer weather and getting outside?
I concur with the earlier comment wondering if PSMH was sold. The super obvious delay in spoilers and the last-season looking items certainly make it seem like there were some changes behind the scenes. Anyone got the scoop?

TNTriathlete

Popsugar was sold. I said in an earlier comment that I hoped that isn’t the reason why this box is starting out so badly and isn’t a sign that PS is about to go downhill.

Becky

I didn’t know it was sold.
Is this a trend now?
Grow a big list, lots of sales, sell… take the money and run; then watch what was once a “must have” die… slowly

Jai

Why oh why did I renew…darn box addiction. For an expensive box, these are terrible spoilers. Never would I ever wear the necklace. Glasses maybe I’ll try. But seriously??? I’ve been waiting and checking for this? Odds of them changing for this box…slim to none as they likely already have the product. That’s money down the drain. The rest better be super fantastic. But not holding my breath. Winter blues are here to stay…
