The PopSugar Must Have Box

I really love monthly subscription services.  I especially love reading other people's reviews of the boxes they receive.  I discovered the blog My Subscription Addiction a few months ago, and have been a loyal reader ever since.  It is a blog that reviews most of the subscription services out there.  Complete heaven (and living vicariously through the author).  Seriously, I had no idea there were so many subscription services out there.

One of my most coveted subscriptions (that I learned about on said blog) was the PopSugar Must Have Box.  I had read a years worth of reviews, and each box seemed to get a little better.  There is a coupon for $5 off your first box (REFER5), so I decided to give it a shot.  I am so happy that I did.

This is the PopSugar Must Have Box.  

It was packed full of beauty, fashion, home and food items (and sometimes contains fitness as well).  

It also came with a card explaining a little bit more about each items, as well as the website where you can shop.

The Sea Salt Caramel Apple Chips were absolutely delicious.  A bag was two servings, and I liked them so much that I lost track and ate the entire thing.  I will be looking for these the next time I hit the grocery store.  

The strawberry & black currant cream preserves by Maison de Monaco is also very good.  Was really nice on toast with a side of eggs.

The Soap & Paper Factory Roland Pine Shea Butter Soap has a nice pine scent, however, I do not like bars of soap.  I will probably use this as part of a hostess gift.

The Absolute! nail polish pads seem to work just fine so far.  I like the Spring Fresh scent.

This is a wine tote from Lands ' End.  It looks very sturdy and well-made.  I don't know if I will ever use this, but it might be an interesting way to gift a bottle of wine .

This was my second favorite item in the box.  This Illume candle in Nice smells heavenly, like Tahitian vanilla, sugar, and coconut cream.  It also has a 35 hour burning time.  

Last, but certainly not least, is this beautiful scarf/wrap by Michael Stars.  It is warm and soft, and I have already worn it a few times.  

The scarf itself retails for $42.  

Overall, I adore the items that I discovered in this box.  I love that there are things I wouldn't have necessarily picked out myself, which I ended up loving. The value was around $100 by my calculations (and the box itself was $35, going up to $39.95 this month).  I am going to give it another shot in December and see if I am equally as impressed.   If you are interested, here is my referral link.  Also use code REFER5 to receive $5 off of your first box.
