POPSUGAR Must Have Box December 2014 Review

Check out the Must have items included for December and let me know what you think? Unfortunately, this will be my last box.  Check out more below...

 What is PopSugar Must Have?
PopSugar Must Have is a monthly subscription box which offers "Must Have" items from Beauty, Food, Home, Fitness, and more.

What it Costs?
PopSugar Must Have is $39.99 a month.  They do offer a 3 and 6 month subscription offer as well. Join here!

Each box comes with a small card/pamphlet showcasing each item for that month.

I did subscribe to three months of PopSugar Must Have.  I was hoping to really love it, but I just could not.  I just never had that "I love this" feeling with these boxes, and would never have spent $40 on the items I have received.

Sparkle Pop Jewelry Sydney Pendant Necklace ($42)
I like the length of this necklace, but I do feel the chain looks pretty cheap.  I may or may not wear this.

Knot & Bow Gift Package Tags ($4)
I just do not feel this goes along with the "Must Have" idea.  I do not need or want gift tags.  I can buy these anywhere, and just feel disappointed.

Subtle Luxury Speckled Metallic Scarf ($62)
This is pretty, but again I am not sure if I will use it or not.  I think it is crazy that this is $62, but to each their own I guess.

Williams Sonoma Cupcake Mix in Vanilla Bean ($15)
This is very cute packaging and will make a very cute gift.

Canvas Home Dauville Bowl in Platinum ($29)
I like this item, but I would never pay $29 for this either.  I do like the ceramic outside and the metallic chrome inside.  Pretty sad though when a little bowl is one of my favorite things in a box.

Smashbox Be Legendary Long Wear Lip Lacquer in Bordeaux ($24)
I like the color of this lip lacquer as it is a deeper berry color.  It is not sticky at all.  Let's see how the staying power will be!  I was happy with this item over all.

Overall, I was still not that blown away with my box.  Some items I loved, and some I could do with out.  The overall value was around $166.  PopSugar Must Have is definitely worth the price if you are willing to pay for the items included.  I personally would never pay this much for a bowl or scarf, and they really are not MUST HAVE items for me.  

I am sorry to say that I have now finished my three month subscription and I cancelled.  I just feel I can find better ways to spend that money.  Please note, I do feel they offer an excellent value but it was just not for me personally.

  1. Thank you for your continued support Celise! You are awesome!

  2. I completely agree, out of this entire box the only thing I would have been happy about is the lipstick. I got one month of popsugar and wasn't blown away either and canceled. I did however get a super nice scarf that one time that was worth $72.. nothing I'd ever pay but it's nice to have such an expensive one lol!
