Subscription Box Review | POPSUGAR Must Have November 2015 PLUS COUPON


Yet another fantastic box from POPSUGAR Must Have! Everything I got in this box ranged from amazing to pretty good – and I’d say that’s pretty good!

POPSUGAR Must Have is a subscription box for women. Every month they send a mixture of items from a wide range of categories, including beauty, fashion, books, home, etc. If you like this box, there’s good news for you – it’s still for sale! Boxes are $39.95 but if you use this link and the POPSUGAR Must Have coupon REFER5 you can get this or another box from them for just $29.95.

Yay! Surprise! Every box includes a pamphlet that details everything in it.

First up is the Deepra Gurnani Katie Crystal Headband. Price: $56.

According to the pamphlet, it’s handcrafted in India. It’s pretty darn shiny and much more comfortable than I imagined. Plus it looks great on Sam! I will say that though this is a well made headband, I wouldn’t have spent $56 on it.

Sam missed his calling as a model.

Tarte Cosmetics Beauty & the Box Eye Shadow. Price: $22

Great colors, great shimmer – this was a win for me. I need some basic colors and that’s what it delivered! I could see someone with tons of makeup being uninspired by this one though.

West Emory Bingo Set. Price: $20

My first thought was, “Really? BINGO?” but after opening it up and taking a good look at it, I’m pretty excited about this addition. It’s got a cool, modern look to it and it’s a pretty simple game almost everyone knows how to play. We have game nights every few months and it’s always challenging coming up with something that everyone knows how to play, or that will work with people dropping by late or others leaving early. This seems like a great fit for that issue.

Capri Blue Mercury Jewel Box in Rain. Price: $18.

This is definitely a pretty candle / jewel box. Mine has some imperfections on it and I’m not clear if these are supposed to be there – if that’s just the way this oxidizes – or if mine was damaged. Either way, I think it’s pretty. I love the mirror finish coupled with the wooden top.

I must say, it’s a very strongly perfumed candle – and I do mean perfumed. I burned it in my office for an hour or so tonight and when Sam came home from work he said, “Uh, did you get some new perfume?” and not in an excited way. It’s not a scent I love, and even if I did like this specific type of perfume, I’d probably still find the scent too strong. I’ll still burn the rest, I’ll just have to make sure I don’t leave it burning for so long. A little goes a long way!

Are these marks normal? I’m not sure!

Still don’t know!

Sure is pretty when it burns though!

Gramr Gratitude Co. Exclusive Thanksgiving Postcard Pack. Price: $10.

As I mentioned in a review of Dottie Box, when the new year comes I’ll be repeating a project I completed a few years ago: Sending out a piece of mail every week. These are perfect for that project. I love the vintage inspired, sort of fally-whimsical pictures they chose.

Terrapin Ridge Farms Pecan Honey Mustard. Price: $6.

I’m a fan of mustard and a fan of honey but for whatever reason I’m not a huge fan of honey mustard. Go figure! Luckily Sam is a big fan. He tried this stuff and said it was very good. It has a strong flavor and is very thick. The jar recommends using it as a marinade or dip, but Sam’s planning to use it the next time he makes us a ham.

SPECIAL EXTRA: Inkdot Gift Card. Price: $20.

I used this to buy a Christmas present for Sam (sshh, don’t tell him!) I bought something that was $9 and it did take the $9 off but I was required to pay shipping out of pocket. Still a good deal for a free extra though – and there’s no minimum purchase required.

Overall I really loved this box! While I wasn’t in love with each individual thing, I do think the value was definitely there – especially if you use the POPSUGAR Must Have coupon REFER5. As always, I can’t wait to see what they send next month!
