Confession…I intended to only try one month of the POPSUGAR Must Have Box, but I forgot (at least that’s what I’m telling myself) to cancel it. But honestly, I’m really glad I didn’t. I really love getting this box, and even though I consider it a bit expensive for a monthly box, I’m really considering continuing my subscription. I’m always so impressed by the quality and value of the boxes I receive, and this month was no different. I think the variety of items is what I love the most.
According to the info card, September’s box was inspired by autumn leaves, long walks, new tunes, back to school, fashion week, and football. Some of my favorite things about fall!
POPSUGAR Must Have is women’s subscription service that is curated by the editors at POPSUGAR. Typically you can expect to receive a wide variety of items including beauty products, home goods, food items, and other miscellaneous items. Each month is $39.99/month. Currently if you subscribe, you’ll receive the October box. However, they are in the midst of a planned site outage for the next week, as it appears they are upgrading it and potentially preparing to release new box varieties! I’m excited to see what they’ll come up with next, so don’t forget to come back next week to check out their new site.
And, here’s a breakdown of the items I received:
Tilo Scarf – (Value $125.00) – This was the spoiler item for the September box. And seriously? The value of this scarf alone makes the entire box worth it. It’s pretty high-end too, is hand-dyed, and is just beautiful. I can see it being worn a lot during these fall months. It’s something that I probably would have never bought for myself, but am really happy to have.
Nike $20 gift card– (Value $20) – This was one of the special extras that were included in the box, but honestly it is one of my favorite items from the box! I’ll get this out of the way first by saying that I am totally biased when it comes to Nike. They’re headquartered in my home town, and I have family that work there. So, I’ve always loved Nike. Having said that, I’ll totally use this gift card. I like that it is actually a true gift card (no minimum purchase), and includes free shipping. It is intended to promote their Nike Pro Bra line (hence the measuring tape), but I think I’ll use it to design a pair of Nike ID shoes. I’ve wanted to do that for a while. What do you guys think of these?
Nicole Miller Stereo Earbuds – (Value $20) – These are fun, and I like that they come with three different ear-cap sizes so you can find your perfect fit. I also like that they’re blue, that’s my favorite color.
Oribe Superfine Purse Size Hair Spray – (Value $21.50) – This is apparently a celebrity favorite. It is medium hold, and isn’t supposed to flake or dull hair styles. At $21.50 for a purse sized version, it had better be amazing! I’m not sure I’d ever buy it, but I’ll definitely use it.
Ghiradelli Milk Chocolate Sea Salt & Almond Minis – (Value $5.95) – You had me at sea salt and almonds. I don’t think you can ever go wrong receiving chocolate. I have actually had these before. I live in San Francisco, and Ghiradelli is a local brand. These minis are perfect for a sweet treat, and come in a handful of other great varieties. Though I loved this version, I’m really excited to pick up a bag of Milk & Caramel, as well as the Milk Chocolate Toffee Crisp versions.
Rifle Paper Co. Garance Dore Assorted Girls Set – (Value $18.00) – Don’t get me wrong, I love most everything from Rifle Paper Co. But, I just don’t love these particular cards. They’re just not my style. I’ll probably gift them.
Letter C Design Gold Foil Arrow Pencils – (Value $5.00) – These pencils are definitely cute, and I could see how they would be great for someone in school. But I just don’t have a use for a bunch of #2 pencils. Combined with the card set above, these would make for a cute gift set.
Urban Remedy Almond Brownie – (Value $6.00) – This is a 100% organic, raw brownie. I like that there are no processed ingrediants in this snack. Urban Remedy is mostly known for their juices and juice cleanse programs. This came with a $10 off of a $50 purchase coupon, which I may actually use.
So, that was the September POPSUGAR Must Have Box! I am again really impressed by the value of this box, and the variety of items was really fun! Overall, September’s box was a hit for me. I calculate the value of this box at $231.45 (including the value of the two gift cards) which is a really tremendous value!
