My August POPSUGAR Must Have Box

The popular entertainment site POPSUGAR has created a new subscription service sharing their favorite products. The Must Have box is a monthly service where you get a curated box delivered to your door. Each box features hand-selected items from the editors worth $100 or more. It's a similar idea to i-ELLA's The List but rather than spending $59, I think you get a little more bang for your buck.

I started with the $35/month option to see how I liked the service before committing. The only downside is I have to re-order each month. Almost all the products were full sized. The August box featured products that focused on wrapping up the summer. Here's what I received:

Pop Physique Original Butt DVD ($14.99) | Alora Ambiance Reed Diffuser in isola (16 oz $90) | Pretzel Crisps Original (7.2 oz bag $3.49) | Bear Naked Fruit and Nut Granola | govino Go Anywhere Wine Glasses (4/16 oz glasses $12.95) | Baggu Bag in Magenta ($9) | Tatcha PETAL FRESH Original Aburatorigami Blotting Papers (30 sheets $12) | Postagram Prints coupon | Sprout Skincare Cleanser and Exfoliator (samples $10) 

I've never tried a diffuser before but this product alone already adds up to the $100 value of the box. Isola is gardenia, tuberose and fig.You get 10 sticks and jar that will last up to 6 months.

It was pretty sweet that they gave you FOUR wine glasses. They also included these personalized coasters, aren't they cute?
I was excited to try the Sprout products. The exfoliant reminds me of dermalogica's daily exfoliant where you add water to a grainy substance. It's very soft and gentle - enjoyed using it! The Cleanser unfortunately broke and leaked all over the box. It ended up damaging the blotting papers. I reached out to POPSUGAR to ask for replacements.

Overall, I really liked the box. I definitely felt like I got my money's worth. There lots of extra goodies like the delicious snacks that made the experience worthwhile.

Would you subscribe to POPSUGAR's Must Have Box?


  1. Sounds like a good box that's worth what you pay! I love diffusers. I have one in my room too.
    Such a shame the cleanser broke. Hope you get a replacement.

  2. looks pretty awesome! i still don't think i'd be willing to spend $35 on a monthly subscription though!

    1. hehe you can opt out every month but definitely need to slim down on boxes

  3. Fun box! Kinda pricey, but still so cool.

    1. Yeah, definitely high up there but not as much as i-ELLA's box which made me want to try it.


We all have opinions... I want to hear yours!
