POPSUGAR Must Have November 2013

Purchased By Me Referral Links

For once I actually went spoiler free for this POPSUGAR Must Have Box and I have to say I think I may have liked it a bit better because it was a surprise. I've come to realize I'm on a bit of a subscription box burnout so avoiding spoilers was helpful.

I'm only posting my instagram picture of this box because I'm busy working on another project. If you have any questions or want to see another view of anything let me know and I will instagram it.

Michael Stars Wrap | MSRP $42.00
This wrap is super soft and while it isn't in a pattern I would normally pick out I do like it. I'm more likely to wear this as a scarf than a wrap but it will be perfect for the winter season in SF since it's not too thick.

Illume Candle | MSRP $15.75
There are two versions of this candle being sent out Naughty and Nice. I received the Naughty (how did they know?). This smells like a light men's cologne scent and I really like it's also a soy candle which is nice. The wax had some separation from the glass which isn't a big deal since I plan on burning it but is an easy fix before sending out, minus points for that.

Lands' End Canvas Wine Tote | MSRP $14.50
Your all probably going to think I'm nuts for what I'm about to say but, I don't drink wine. Ever. It gives me the worlds worst migraine headache so I avoid it at all costs. This however will be gifted to one of my many wine drinking friends for the holidays so not a complete loss.

Masison De Monaco Strawberry & Blackcurrant cream Preserves | MSRP $6.00
Nice to see a San Francisco company in this box. I have seen these in stores around town but never picked it up so I'm looking forward to trying it.

The Soap & Paper Factory Roland Pine Shea Butter Soap | MSRP $8.00
I'm not really digging the way this pine soap smells... It's um very outdoorsy and I'm not the outdoorsy type.

Absolute! Nail Polish Remover Pads | MSRP $2.99
A girl can always use more nail polish remover!

Special Extras

$30 Canvaspop Coupon Code
Not a "gift card" as they state it is and if I remember correctly we got a similar item around this time last year. The company does make awesome prints however they are quite pricey.

Barefruit Crunchy Sea Salt Caramel Apple Chips
These were so gross. They smelled bad like old apples and I literally had to spit it out. I'm not even going to count this item toward the box MSRP.

I was happy to see very little advertising for other subscriptions in this months box. This box's retail value totals out to $90.24 wah wah wahhh, as you guys know I never count "coupon codes" towards my MSRP values because they are coupons not actual items they have no cash value. I'm very disappointed that the promised $100 MSRP value can't be achieved with this box unless you add that coupon code.

When I first opened this box I was okay with the selection of items. After thinking on this  more I am not happy about the value or the number of items I received especially with the price increase that just happened at the start of this month. I do not feel I got my money's worth for this now $45 (with tax and price increase) box. I almost feel a little cheated by them because the price went up on my end but the quality didn't go up on theirs.

It's looking like next month will be the end of my POPSUGAR affair and as of right now I can say I don't think I will miss, it unless next month they pull a rabbit out of a hat.

What do you think of the November 2013 POPSUGAR Must Have box?


  1. This looks like a box that men would want more than women. Seeing this I'm not sorry that I stopped subscribing.

  2. I absolutely loved. I like that it came out little by little for better usage and less waste. It was a little difficult to come out of the tube when it got low (that goes for anything in a tube)
