We’re big fans of the subscription service box. What’s better than receiving a surprise in the mail every month? Subscription service boxes are a hot commodity these days. You can get monthly surprise boxes for everything from beauty samples to dog treats and baby items. We love these boxes so much, we’re dedicating a new category to reviewing them!
Our first review is for PopSugar’s Must-Have box. This box appeals to the customer more interested in fashion and lifestyle items. If you already receive boxes for beauty and makeup products, PopSugar is a great addition to your monthly subscription boxes.
Now, for the nitty gritty!

The Cost & Details
While PopSugar’s box has a higher price point at $39.95 a month, the value of the products far exceeds the monthly cost. For example we were totally thrilled to receive a gorgeous ombre scarf from Tilo. This scarf retails at Fred Segal and finer department stores for $125. It is large, made from super soft modal cotton, and the ombre design is so chic. It was by far our favorite item in the box! Also, the $20 Nike gift card has no purchase minimum, so it really is like getting $20 for free. Additionally, the card and pencil set is adorable and very high quality. The Ghirardelli chocolates and Urban Remedy brownie were also nice bonuses. The Oribe hairspray is also super useful and handy for travel and to throw in your purse for quick touchups. Lastly, we were pleasantly surprised that the Nicole Miller earbuds are a hands-free headset, so you can use them for both talking on the phone and playing music.
Overall this box is a great value. If you’re more interested in fashion and lifestyle items versus solely cosmetics, you will enjoy this box. When it comes to this box, you get more than you pay for.
