January 2018 POPSUGAR Must Have review time!
If you’re new here, 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. The total value is almost always well over $100!

Monthly boxes are $39.95, but you can save $5 on your first month with coupon code “MUSTHAVE5“.
Let’s see what’s in the January 2018 POPSUGAR Must Have box!
Everything was shipped in a white & pink box with the POPSUGAR logo on top.
A peek inside!
As always, the fold-out info card included photos, descriptions, and retail values for each item. The January 2018 POPSUGAR Must Have box was inspired by the following themes: Renewed, Fresh, Nourishing, Self-Care, Snug, and Rejuvenated.
I was excited to see a fun winter hat included in January’s box. It’s made of a lightweight acrylic material and features a fluffy faux fur pom on top. The neutral, light gray shade allows it to be paired with a variety of different colored coats, scarves, and mittens.
I wasn’t too thrilled about this when it was released as a spoiler, but now that I have it in my hands it’s one of my favorite items in the box. It also helps that I haven’t bought a 2018 calendar on my own yet. 😉 Although some of the prints aren’t really my style, I do like how colorful they all are. Plus, the calendar comes with a sheet of stickers! Woo!
I didn’t open the box above, because like all Farmacy products, the packaging is uniquely designed and near impossible to open without making it difficult to put back together. Since I’m not keeping it for myself (my skin is super picky about what I use on it), I wanted to keep everything totally in tact. For those with less finicky skin, this moisturizer features Echinacea GreenEnvy™ Honey, triple hyaluronic acid complex, and cupuaçu butter beads to keep skin smooth and soft all day long.
This lightweight, reusable cup is a nice eco-friendly alternative to disposable coffee cups. It’s made from a BPA/BPS-free plastic called Tritan, which doesn’t shatter if you happen to drop it. It holds 16 ounces of your favorite beverage and has a plug to cover the mouthpiece when not in use. It’s also dishwasher safe. 🙂
These fruit-flavored effervescent tablets are packed with electrolytes and vitamins to hydrate you better than water alone. They’re made with clean ingredients and are gluten-free, vegan-friendly, and non-GMO.
RX Bar in Chocolate Sea Salt ($1.99)
A real food protein bar made with 100% natural ingredients. It consists of dates, egg whites, cashews, almonds, cacao, cocoa, natural chocolate flavor, and sea salt. There’s no added sugar, soy, dairy, or gluten and each bar has an impressive 12 grams of protein.
January’s POPSUGAR Must Have Box had a nice selection of products with a fun New Year’s/winter vibe. My favorite items were the Ban.do calendar, Hat Attack pom hat, and KeepCup. The total value of everything in this month’s box was just under $137! 🙂
If you’d like to check out POPSUGAR Must Have Box for yourself, you can save $5 on your first box when you use coupon code “MUSTHAVE5” at checkout. That’ll make your box around $35 shipped!
