My August PopSugar Must Have Box

Like many of you out there I’ve become slightly obsessed with subscription boxes. To this date I’ve tried:

  • Stitch Fix – still going strong, but on an every other month basis now
  • RunnerBox – liked it while I was running, but didn’t use enough of the products to warrant keeping it
  • Ipsy – was hit or miss in terms of product… wasn’t worth it in the end for me
  • BoxyCharm – just signed up for this one, and one of my favorite YouTubers LOVES it, so I’m hopefully I’ll feel the same. It’s another makeup/beauty item box, but for just a little more money than Ipsy you get mostly full size products! I’ll take it!
  • Rocksbox – I was offered a free 3-month subscription for this one (with many other bloggers) and while I liked the idea of it, sometimes the jewelry was a big miss (even though I marked items and went through their survey) and unless you got a lot of referral money I felt the jewelry was too expensive most of the time.
  • I also get the Walmart Beauty Box. I saw this first on Your Wishcake and for $5 a quarter, why not? It’s never anything mindblowing, but its always good brands and decent sized items.
  • I also did a beer subscription once… I don’t remember what it was called but also after the first discounted month I felt it wasn’t worth the money.

My newest subscription obsession is courtesy of Greatest Escapist who wrote about all of her subscription boxes and I immediately got sucked into the magic that is the PopSugar Must Have Box. At $39.95 a month it’s the priciest of all the boxes I’ve tried, but you really seem to get the most value out of it. I have to say I was a bit disappointed in my first box but they totally made up for it with the August box!





Quite possibly the best thing ever. BEST DAY EVER! I freaking love the font.




I also LOVE the YAY LUNCH little container. The downside is that its not segmented on the inside, so its really only really good for a salad or something you don’t mind getting mixed together.

I really loved this box and can’t wait for the September box. There’s already been a preview of some items and they’re including a Too Faced kit! WOOOOOOOOOO!

  1. I love this box, & I’m so glad you’re enjoying it so far! I agree that the July box was not the best – I was also seriously annoyed by all the spoilers because for me, so much of the fun is in the surprise! – but the August box is awesome. They really excel at autumn, so I have high hopes for the next couple months. 🙂

  2. seriously, all of that stuff is so cute. LOVE the mug.

    i’ve yet to hop on the subscription box train, i’m afraid once i do my wallet will hate me forever, ha.

  3. The one box I’ve done is graze, which sends for snacks each month. Like other boxes it’s sometimes hit or miss, but it’s always fun getting to try new snacks each month. I know there’s boxes with children’s toys or clothes and those seem like they’d be a lot of fun as well.

  1. […] into the land of subscription boxes. At first it was just StitchFix but I’ve gone on to try a bunch of other boxes since that first one. I always like hearing from other friends/bloggers about their subscription boxes (FOMO is […]
