The better monthly surprise
In the middle of my BirchBox experience, Popsugar.com started to promote their Must Have box which launched in July. It was pricier than the BirchBox at $35 per month, but promised each box would contain products with a minimum retail value of $150.* I decided to give it a try – I could do one month and cancel if it sucked.
The first month my pink box arrived, I was very excited. Upon opening, I was surprised to find a beach tote, a full-sized Body Drench body scrub, moisturizer, two full-sized Ilia lipsticks, two Kind bars (delicious by the way) and two RGB nail polishes.
The RGB nail polishes alone retail for $16 each and the Ilia lipsticks are $24 each. The nail polish was super long-wearing and even with a cheap top coat, lasted eight impressive days with no chipping.
