Well, hellooo there, October Popsugar Must Have Box! I was mighty surprised to see this on my doorstep today, since I haven’t even gotten a shipping notice yet. But hey, no complaints here!
For those who
live under a rock haven’t heard, Popsugar Must Have is a monthly lifestyle subscription box that’s curated with a fun variety of “on trend” products curated by the Popsugar team. Items can range from food, beauty, household, fashion, fitness gear and everything in between. Unlike a lot of other subscription boxes, everything in this box is full sized. No foil packets in this bad boy.
Monthly boxes are $39.95 and there’s almost always a discount code available (I’ve included one at the end of this post!).
Alright, onto October’s goodies!
Mine Design Chalkboard Soy Message Ceramic Candle ($29.95) – I LOVE this! It’s a soy wax candle in a fun ceramic holder that you can write on with the included chalk. Just like a traditional chalkboard, you can write and erase as many times as you wish. Plus, when the candle is all used up, you can scrape out the soy residue and reuse the holder again and again. I’m not sure if there were scent variations (I didn’t get an info card AGAIN), but mine is Pomegranate. Perfect for autumn!
Dean & Deluca Pumpkin Spice Maltballs ($5.50) – ‘Tis the season for pumpkin spice everything. These maltballs sound incredibly good, but obviously they’re not vegan so I’ll have to pass them along to a lucky family member.
Happy Socks ($12.00) – Socks! Happy ones! I don’t know why, but I kinda love getting socks in subscription boxes. I guess cos it’s not something I think of (or enjoy) buying on my own. These ones are made of combed cotton and produced in Turkey. I’m not a huge fan of animal print, but the dark colors make it a bit more subtle, so I’m cool with it. No one really sees my socks outside of the house anyway, right?
Issac Jacobs Magnetic Picture Frame ($24.95) – This is a nice 4″ x 6″ frame with two separate pieces which snap together with magnets to hold your photo in place. I love the simplicity of it and the fact that it can go well with pretty much any decor. It’s probably not something I’d think to buy on my own, but I loved getting it in the box. Now to decide on a photo to slap inside…
K. Hall Designs Shea Butter/Olive Oil Soap ($10) – Wow. This is one BIG bar of soap. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one quite so large — 8 flipping ounces! Needless to say, this bar’s gonna last a long time. It has a pure vegetable base and is enriched with shea butter and olive oil to moisturize your skin.
Nailed Kit Halloween Decals ($8.00) – I’m totally bummed that I haven’t grown my nails out long enough to pull off these adorable decals. They’re so simple to use too — just apply them to your nails like temporary tattoos and seal with a coat of clear polish. They last up to a week with normal wear. Ah well, maybe next year…
Butter London Wink Eye Pencil in “Earl Grey” ($18) – I wear eyeliner daily, and I like this smokey grey color, but I really wish it wasn’t a pencil. I’ve been using automatic (self-sharpening) liners for years and kinda don’t want to put forth the effort needed to constantly sharpen a pencil. Yeah, I know… Woe is me. That said, for $18 I just may have to dig up a sharpener and give it a whirl.
While there wasn’t an obvious big ticket item like last month’s box, I’m still really pleased with October’s selections. It featured a nice mix of autumn-inspired products and I like that most of them were pretty practical/appealing to a wide audience. My favorite items were the candle, picture frame, socks, and bar soap. Oh, and all totaled (using Amazon and retail prices), the products in this month’s box comes to about $108. Not as high as last month, but still a great deal considering the subscription is less than $40/month!
