January 2014 PopSugar Must Have Box Review!

PopSugar Must Have Box is one of my newer subscriptions, and one of the most exciting because it contains a variety of full-sized products, rather than one type of item. These items are chosen as favorites by the PopSugar editors, packaged up and delivered right to your door for $39.95. While this is a higher priced box than what I normally get, they are always packed with items that are all together worth well over the price of the box. It's a really fun surprise each month!

This box was a "supply kit" for the new year, full of items to help you get a fresh start, or to help change up your beauty routine. 

The boxes are always pretty large in size, and are always packaged in pretty pink tissue paper with a information booklet, which tells you a bit about each product that is featured in the box for that month.

Let's get on to the goodies!

1. Pipsnacks White Truffle Pipcorn ($6)

This is a very large, full-size bag of Popcorn that earns the name "pipcorn" for it's small-sized kernels. It's an all-natural, gluten-free popcorn seasoned with sea salt and white truffles, popped in olive oil. It's absolutely delicious! You don't have to like truffle/truffle oil to appreciate this popcorn. It's very lightly flavored with truffle, but mostly tastes like a fresh bag of lightly salted popcorn.

2. Revlon by Marchesa: Box O' Files ($4)

These are a cute set of 6 files from Revlon. They are part of a larger series of beauty tools designed by Marchesa for Revlon. I recently received this exact set of files from a sample box company, so I wasn't too excited to see them here, however they are quite cute and would make a nice little gift, or something that's easy to throw in your purse!

4. Jack + Lucy Tech Gloves ($20)

These are a really cute pair of dark grey gloves with black finger panels on the thumb and pointer fingers that allow you to use any touch screen device while wearing them. These are really soft and comfortable, although I don't have much use for tech gloves, as I'm super behind the times and don't have a smart phone or a tablet, haha! These were gifted to a friend that could make much better use of them than I could. Even so, these are a very cute addition to a winter box!

5. Rifle Paper Co. 2014 Flip Around The World Desk Calendar ($16)

This is an absolutely adorable 2014 desk calendar with an easel base that has the cutest artwork of some of the larger, popular cities in the world: Think London, New York, Bangkok etc! I really would have loved to get this in the December 2013 box, as it's already almost February and most people, myself included, have already gotten their calendars for the year. However, this is really more of a decorative piece, and I have a few bookshelves in the house where this would look great. I think the artwork is so cute that you could even cut and frame them in inexpensive frames and decorate a small space!

6. The Juice Generation Book ($16)

I was hoping for a book in this month's box, although this is unfortunately a book that would be last on my wishlist. This summer I ran out and bought a juicer and a ton of fruit and veggies so I could jump on the juicing bandwagon, and gave up just a few hours later. It was very expensive to use so much produce just to product one yucky tasting beverage, and honestly, I just missed solid foods. This is actually a really nice book for someone who is interested in juicing, and there are also recipes for smoothies, which is nice, but not enough for me to keep this book. I'll be trading it or passing it on!

6. Malin + Goetz Detox Face Mask ($40)

This is definitely the best and most valuable item in the box, hands down! I've seen and heard quite a buzz around this company, and getting a lip balm in my Ipsy bag this month, and a face mask in my PopSugar box has made it so I can finally get a good idea of what this company is all about. $40 is a bit pricey for a 4oz face mask (at least for me!) But I've been told that this is a bubbly-feeling, soothing and brightening mask, so I really look forward to checking this one out!

The overall value of this box is $102! The cost of each box is only $39.95, which is the cost of JUST the face mask alone! This is my second month with PopSugar and I always have such a blast opening the boxes because they're such a surprise. It's like a little Christmas gift every month!
