PopSugar Must Have Box: February Edition

I am obsessed with my PopSugar subscription! I think these boxes are the best subscription boxes out there. I gave my sister, who is the hardest person to shop for, a subscription for her birthday and she loves it. The best thing about these subscription boxes is the feeling of receiving a surprise gift every month. PopSugar boxes feel like gifts from someone who knows you really well. This month was definitely one of my favorites. Check out the items below to see what I found in my February PopSugar Must Have Box.


The card that comes with every PopSugar Must Have Box includes information on all of the products included. Here is what it said inside:

“What inspired us for February?

One Love

Hearts & Arrows

Red Hot

Devine Desserts


~Lisa Sugar, PopSugar Founder & Editor-in-Chief”


BaubleBar Mini Arrow Pendant Necklace


ACME Party Box Company Bamboo Heart Cutting Board & Cheese Knife

The Daily Moxie Box reviews Birchbox

Welcome to our new on-going feature: The Daily Moxie Box. Monthly subscription boxes seem to be all the rage right now. So we’ve decided to take some of the guess work out of your purchasing decision and help you decide which boxes are worth the monthly fee. We will review some of the top boxes out there, post pics and give you an idea of  what you get in each box. Are some of them worth the monthly fees, which range anywhere from $15 to $50 dollars a month, or are you better off going to a department store and getting free samples on your own? Let us break it down for you!


Our first box is the one that seemed to start it all Birchbox!

When Birchbox first came out, the samples were incredible. A great size, unusual variety and different boxes for different people. Lately the Daily Moxie ladies have been a little underwhelmed with the samples. (Are we getting bigger or are the samples getting smaller?)

Here’s a look at July’s box:


Here’s a list of what you get:

b.right Moisturizing Collection by Benefit Cosmetics (full-size $30-40)

Curly Keeper by Curly Hair Solutions by Jonathan Torch (full-size $10)

CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 40 by purminerals (full-size $38)

Ceramidin Cream by Dr. Jart (full-size $48)

Birchbox Exclusive Colorfully patterned Bobby Pins – set of six ($5)

You also get a card that gives you the chance at getting a deluxe mini whenever you purchase a full size Benefit product or spend 25+ at the Birchbox Bonus shop.

Our thoughts:

While we’ve seen better boxes from Birchbox, we will stick with them a while longer. Some of the more jam-packed boxes make up for the slightly sparse ones. They’ve introduced us to lots of products we’ve never heard of (Hello, Jouer!) and they always have a whimsical flair to the packaging. Another bonus is if you leave a review on the Birchbox website about the samples you’ve received, you can rack up a bunch of points towards your next purchase. And you can’t go wrong at 15 bucks a month.
