POPSUGAR Must Have April 2013

Referral Credit Box Referral Links
Just received my POPSUGAR Must Have box for April in the mail and I must say I am pretty disappointed with the contents of this months box. I'm well aware that is indeed the chance you take with subscription boxes and I'm only critical of this box because I have liked many of the item I have received from this sub in the past and feel that this box just wasn't up to their regular standards. Even if they would have included one more item I think it could have vastly improved this box, as it stands I'm just not feeling it and I'm hoping next month will be better.

Now onto the contents of the box!


Kai | Fragrance Oil MSRP $48

This is a gardenia scented roll on oil and it is heavily floral which I'm not into at all. I did put some on my pulse points and it was still pretty strong for the first 4 hours and then tamed down a bit but I don't think I'll be wearing this.

Shashi | New Nugget Bracelet MSRP $28
I'm so over the gold jewelry trend that's been going on lately I never liked gold to begin with so this trend can end anytime now! I know I know other people don't mind gold as much as I do but this is the third gold colored jewelry item we have gotten in a Must Have box now I want some silver. The bracelet itself is good quality but not something I would ever pay $28 for.

The Green Garmento | 4 in 1 Reusable Dry Cleaning Bag MSRP $9.99
I guess at least this will be semi useful for clothes even though I don't really know what I'm going to put in it at the moment. I will say it's gigantic and can be turned into a duffle or used as a hamper liner which might be what I end up using it for not sure.

Alter Eco | Dark Quinoa Organic Chocolate MSRP $3.99
Alright I dig the fact that this is organic and it uses quinoa for the crispy part. I don't dig that this is incredibly bitter and anyone who says this is "tasty" is a flat out liar or doesn't have taste buds. Sure it's dark chocolate so I expected it to be a bit bitter but not bitter enough to make me pucker! Bottom line this stuff is gross don't eat it!

Tatcha | Evening Aburatorigami Blotting Papers MSRP $15.00
I don't use blotting papers all that much so these will probably sit around until one day I find some use for them. Tatcha is a well known company when it comes to blotting papers and beauty products so at least I get to try something from them at some point.

There we have it ladies and gents the most disappointing POPSUGAR Must Have box to date in my book. I hope next month they come together with something better. Based on MSRP values this box comes in at $104.98 which is really cutting it close to their promised MSRP value of $100 had one of these products been a bit lower in price and they would have really been in trouble with subscribers imo!

What do you think of this months Must Have Box?
POPSUGAR Must Have is $35 a month, you can use code REFER5 to get $5 off your first order.

  1. The only thing I would have liked is the perfume because I love gardenia. The rest of it would have been a waste. I can see why you were unhappy!

    1. Yes they took a big risk having the perfume being the big ticket item since everyone has different scent preferences. I hope next month is better.

  2. totally agree with you - when I picked up my box and felt how light it was, I had a feeling it wouldn't be good. There is not a single item I am excited about :(

  5. I was also really disappointed with this and couldn't initially believe that it was worth more than $100, as POPSUGAR promises. Adding up the actual retail values, it is, but I'd NEVER spend that much on these little things. I did like the perfume and the bracelet and blotting papers are okay, but I didn't love the chocolate or the laundry bag. This box just felt cheaper than previous boxes.

    1. Yeah they just barely scraped by on the promised MSRP value. I have to wonder if they laxed on quality of this box because of the luxury box coming out next month or because of the Brokedown wrap debacle of last month either way it shouldn't have been skimped on.

  6. I'm so so disappointed in this bag. What a waste of my $35 plus shipping. The bracelet is meant to be worn stacked so to look good you'd want to buy a few.

    1. Yep I agree it could have been much better and this is my least fav of the ones I have received. Shipping for this box is free however.

  7. Yeah, I can definitely see why you are disappointed with this month's POPSUGAR box. My favorite item is the Shashi bracelet, but I totally agree with you about the price. It doesn't look like something I would gladly hand over $28 for.
