October 2017 POPSUGAR Must Have review time!

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!

Let’s see what’s in the October 2017 POPSUGAR Must Have box!
The familiar pink & white POPSUGAR Must Have box.
A peek inside!
As always, the fold-out info card included photos, descriptions, and retail values for each item. The October 2017 POPSUGAR Must Have box was inspired by the following themes: De-Stress, Cozy, Bedtime, Dreamy, Slumber, and Sleep.
Jack + Lucy Pillow and Blanket Set ($49.99)
While I think the retail value listed for this travel pillow/blanket set is a wee bit steep, it’s nevertheless one of my favorite items in this month’s box. Both pieces are incredibly soft and I love the black and off-white stripes. These would be great for travel or just snuggling on the couch.
Infused with shea butter and avocado oil, this luxurious shower gel conditions the skin as it cleanses. It’s scented with a flowery blend of linden, white tea, bergamot, and honeysuckle. Unfortunately, I’m not a huge fan of floral scents, so I’ll likely be gifting this to someone who is.
This 100% cotton sleep mask is designed to help block out light without feeling uncomfortable. Its oversized dimensions (9.5″ length x 4″ wide) and wide elastic band make you feel like you’re not even wearing it (so it claims). I’ve personally never had any use for a sleep mask, so I’ll be putting this up on my trade board.
At first I thought these “night” eye gels needed to be worn overnight, but they actually only require 5 minutes. Much better! Each gel/patch is infused with caffeine and hydrolyzed collagen to smooth, de-puff, and brighten for a more youthful appearance.
Yes!! I love these Nature’s Bakery brownies and was thrilled to see a vegan-friendly treat in this month’s POPSUGAR Must Have box. It’s made with organic stone ground whole wheat, organic dates, and other natural/vegan-friendly ingredients. Yum!
This gift card is good for $30 off any custom framing order. Frame packages start at $39 (with free shipping), so you can get potentially score a $39 framed photo for just $9 shipped. Not bad!
Quaker Overnight Oats Toasted Coconut & Almond Crunch (special extra)
There were THREE “special extras” — items not counted towards the overall value — included in October’s box. The first was this package of overnight oats made with 100% whole grain oats, quinoa, flaxseed, nuts, and other natural ingredients. Just cold-steep overnight and in the morning you’ll be good to go.
Aquaphor Advanced Therapy Ointment Body Spray (special extra)
When I saw the word “ointment”, I assumed this was something for first aid. Turns out, it’s actually just a spray-on moisturizer that works to relieve dry, rough skin. It’s water-free, easy to apply, and even sprays upside-down for your hard to reach spots.
Keurig The Original Donut Shop K-Cups 6-Count + 50% Coupon (special extra)
K-cups! I use my Keurig on the daily, so I can never have too many K-cups. These ones are medium roast and extra bold. Works for me! Also included was a coupon code for 50% off a Keurig coffee maker purchased on Keurig.com — up to a $159.99 value. 😀
I haven’t reviewed any of my POPSUGAR Must Have boxes since May, partly due to how many other reviews I’ve had to work on, and partly due to my lack of excitement over them. October’s box was exactly what I needed to get back into posting the reviews because it was SO freakin’ AWESOME! My favorite items were the Jack + Lucy blanket/pillow set, Framebridge gift card, Nature’s Bakery brownie, K-Cups, and overnight oats. The total value of everything in this month’s box was over $132 — not including the gift card & special extras! 🙂
If you’d like to check out POPSUGAR Must Have Box for yourself, you can save $5 on your first box (I believe this one is still available!) when you use coupon code “MUSTHAVE5” at checkout. That’ll make your box around $35 shipped!
