The Popsugar Must Have Box is a curated box of of goodies with brands you probably never heard of. It is kind of like Birchbox, except it costs a bit more and has full sized items. When PopSugar sent me this Must Have box to try, I was totally thrilled, because I love discovering new brands that I would otherwise not have known.
How it works. Popsugar Must Have is a subscription box for $39.95/month. You can also choose a mini box, which costs $18.95/month. But you always get more than your money’s worth.
The September 2016 box has over $145 worth of goodies:
- The Gluten Free Bites Dark Chocolate Coconut Bites ($5 value)
- A Jack & Lucy Wide Brim Hat ($58 value)
- NCLA Mani-ER Tool Kit ($16 value)
- Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask ($36 value)
- F’Lint Lint Roller ($10 value)
- Smith & Cult Lip Lacquer in The Warning ($22 value)
Naturally, I ripped open the The Gluten Free Bites immediately and started munching. They are vegan, gluten free, dairy free, and GMO free (heck yes.) They are insanely good! I already looked them up on Amazon and they come in other tasty flavors (PB+J, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Chocolate Hazelnut, uhhhh yum.)
I know the NCLA nail kit will come in handy for those times you desperately need scissors or a nail clipper. It’s also nice to have a set, because I feel like thorough the years I have a mish mash of random nail tools.
The Smith & Cult lip gloss looks insanely bright in the tube, but it is actually pretty sheer. It took me like 5 minutes to open the tube (it was screwed on SO tight for some reason!). But it feels really nice on my lips and has a sweet smell. It doesn’t tingle or anything, like some glosses these days. The label says it is gluten free, which is kind of cool and smart considering you basically eat whatever you put on our lips. Wearing it makes you look like you just ate a popsicle. In a good way.
The retractable Flint lint roller is kind of a weird thing to receive, but with everyone having pets these days it really is a necessary accessory. I buy lint rollers in bulk from Costco (#catsofglam), and I’ve never had one this chic.
The Jack & Lucy hat is super cool and chic. It is a simple black fedora, and totally necessary for effortlessly chic fall outfits. I already have a black hat that I love, but this one is a little bit of a different shape. It’s definitely too big for my head, but check out this sneaky trick I use to make my hats fit.
Finally, the Briogeo deep conditioning mask is probably something I should have bought months ago. I’ve been throwing my hair in messy buns and it is dry and angry with me lately, I’m going to treat my hair to this mask and give it some TLC this weekend!

It really is like getting a present. Sometimes it is nice to receive things that you wouldn’t normally pick our for yourself.
THat looks like a great box. My cats like to get involved too . lol
Hahaha my cat Jake loves packages! He is nosy.
That’s awesome that they sent you gluten free snacks AND lip gloss! Did they ask you about dietary restrictions when you signed up?
I know I was so pumped! No, everyone who orders a box gets the exact same thing! Just got lucky, I guess.
Wow, that is lucky! I guess gluten free is trendy these days. 😀
