POPSUGAR Must Have December 2016 Box Review

December is always such a great month for subscription boxes! Each box just feels brimmed with Christmas cheer–it makes me so incredibly happy! POPSUGAR Must Have has consistently been one of my favorite subscription boxes, and definitely my most consistent subscription. I’ve been a subscriber for over 3 years now and will probably still be subscribed 3 years from now.

POPSUGAR Must Have is a subscription service that sends a variety of items for women that are curated by the POPSUGAR editors. Items typically include food, beauty, home, among other miscellaneous things. Each month is $39.99/month, but you can use the code REFER5 to get $5 off your first month.

Bauble Bar Snowfall Pendant | $28.00
We’ve gotten pieces from BaubleBar in the past from POPSUGAR, and I’ve always been happy with the quality. This is an exclusive design for the Must Have box. I love that it comes with a pouch that is perfect for gifting, since I think a lot of people (myself included!) buy extra boxes for gifts and stocking stuffers. This would be such a cute stocking stuffer!

Close up of the front. I like that the pendant actually swivels and is minimal enough to appeal to lots of people. White and silver is a simple and classic combination. This would go with pretty much any outfit. It feels wintery without being too specific, so it’s a versatile piece.

The curved part swivels up and down! The pieces all feel well made.

Winky Lux Lip Pill in Bunny | $14.00
I had never heard of this brand before so I like getting to try something completely new. While I have waaayyyyy too much lipstick right now, I can’t resist adorable packaging. Look at how pretty the lipstick case is! The color itself is a nice muted cranberry, which is great for the holidays.

Sisters’ Gourmet Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix | $7.00
It’s probably a little pathetic how excited I was to see cookie mix, but I mean, COOKIES! What could be more Christmas?! And seriously this mix is so posh and pretty. I really wanted to gift it since it really is a beautiful jar, but in the end I decided to keep it for myself for Christmas cookies. I’ll be baking these on Christmas eve!

The mix requires butter, 1 egg white, and vanilla extract. I can’t wait to taste these in a few days! You have no idea how much self control it required to wait this long!

Dessange Top Coat Serum | $12.00
When I first saw this I was disappointed, since I don’t have color treated hair and didn’t need another serum. But this actually has UV protection for your hair! I desperately need UV protection in the Texas summer here, so I am actually now really excited about this! This is one of the best parts about subscription boxes: finding new stuff that surprises you with how useful it is (plus the great value)!

Mane Message Date Night Bobby Pins | $10.00
Perfect stocking stuffer! I was set on gifting this but then I needed some cute bobby pins for my company’s holiday party and these fit the bill. They’re cute and sparkly without being overly gaudy, and the colors can work for all occasions.

Odeme Ring Dish | $23.00
Saving my favorite items for last! I always love receiving home items in boxes, especially really useful ones like this. I keep little trays all over the house for keys, jewelry, coins, etc. For a messy girl like me, these trays help me keep my messes contained! I love the minimal look of this ring dish too!

Odeme Catchall | $44.00
How cute is this little set? The tray is a great size and perfect for my makeup collection and brushes on my vanity. Both the tray and the ring dish are very solidly made and look quite pretty in my home.

And look at how adorable the boxes are! I purchased a 2nd December box mostly because I have a friend who would love this set for Christmas!

This wasn’t part of the December box, but since I re-subscribed during the Black Friday sale, I got a bonus item. I won’t be counting this towards the overall value, but just wanted to include it in my review because it’s a great product! I have only used this mask twice so far but it’s really quite fantastic. I usually use GlamGlow masks but this is seriously comparable! Just for reference, I have combination skin with some hormonal acne and it works so well for me.

What a great December box! The value is $138.00. Everything is very giftable and the curation was on point. It definitely felt like a holiday box! I know it’s a great box when I had planned to gift most of the items but ended up keeping everything, so had to buy a second box for gifts! That’s what I would call a successful box. I hope 2017 brings more boxes like this one!
