POPSUGAR Must Have Bag - Page 7

post #181 of 311

I don't have mine yet, but my FedEx tag say 3.2 lbs and I'm signed up for the monthly.  

To change to value amount NOW is totally shady. (This being said without having seen any spoilers.)

They've had plenty of time (this has been promoted for a long time) to either change the copy, or add to the value of the bag!

 

Still, I'm excited and can't wait to get mine.  Mine still says it's in Reno.  I hope it isn't getting into trouble gambling. patches.gif

hmmm, not sure how I feel about it now that I've clicked the spoiler. I signed up thinking it would have more life style items, since it said it would. Maybe i'll be more excited in person when it gets here.

Tracking says Sacramento still.

I just read the terms over and I decided to go with that whole "First Bag Guarantee." I just looked at the box again and I realized that I most likely won't use much in it, and it totally wasn't worth my #35. I feel like I've gotten better items in my cheaper subscriptions before. Hopefully they won't give me a hard time and will just give me the refund so I can move on. Definitely not looking back at this subscription.

There are definitely a few items I'm excited for and will get great use out of, but I do think my hopes were set a little higher. I think I'll stick it out for one more month and see if we get more of a variety of items - brand-wise and type-wise - next month!

post #186 of 311
I'm supposed to get mine today and from the Spoiler, I'm not impressed. Definitely thought it would include better stuff. Was thinking maybe theyd send out jewelry or some type of lifestyle products.... We shall see.
post #187 of 311

Wow. I had this one all filled out and ready to go. I am glad I did not complete the sub! $35 needs to rock for a sub. This might roll tongue.gif

post #188 of 311

Ya exactly. I was really hoping for a lifestyle, all around kind of subscription. Did it have a theme? Maybe next month will be different. I kind of do want to give it at least another month in case there ends up being more variety.

post #189 of 311
I can't say that I'm thrilled:( but in other ways I'm glad I'm not attached to the box! I'm using all the products I won't be using for up coming birthdays and Xmas. I already have all my presents in groups and this will be the final touch to many presents! If anything I do love how I got most of my gifts done for the season, I to was hoping for more variety and not all this to say the least. But I'm excited to try the product that's 24 dollar value:)

One of the products that we're getting IS in that picture, so I'm thinking that there will be more variety in the upcoming months....

post #191 of 311

I have to agree that I was hoping for more lifestyle, home and fashion items. I'm ok with some beauty, but with so many beauty subs and cheaper I was hoping for it to be more. I am getting 3 months free so I'm sticking around and I do hope they mix it up some more.

3 months free?  from referring friends or what?

post #193 of 311

Looks like they changed it to $100 worth of product on the pop sugar must have site today as well. I took a screen shot of the $150 messaging before they took it down...

 

I'm excited for the box, I just don't like being misled

Wow! That is not cool!

post #195 of 311

I might cancel if that is the case. I missed the July box so I am hoping its good enough to stay for September. Beautyfix is better then. $50/ season with over $400 worth of products

Yep. I've been working for the last week or so getting referrals.

My shipping just updated with an ETA of Saturday.  If my box is like your's I'll probably cancel too.  The products aren't bad but it's $38.24 for me and your box had 2 lipsticks from the same brand, 2 bars from the same brand, 2 nail polishes from the same brand and 2 body products from the same brand (but at least they were 2 different products).  Like others I was expecting a variety of things and not just beauty products.  I'm already pretty happy with BB and GB so I don't want another beauty sub unless it's better than those 2.

post #198 of 311

I'm pretty torn over this.  I was SO excited and when I got it in the mail today I was rather underwhelmed.  It was so hyped I was really expecting to be wowed.  I also expected more product variety.  However, that being said I did really like four of the products and will probably enjoy two others

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I love the nail polishes and really like the lip conditioners.  I'll probably enjoy the two bath/body products as well.

Is it worth the price I paid (especially since I had to pay tax so it was $38.11 for me)?  Not sure, especially since I get other several other beauty subscription boxes already.  I may give it one more month to see if we get more variety with the August box.

Very Cool! 

 

I did break down and peak at the spoilers.  I'm ok with the box but will cancel/ not continue with it. It's just not worth it.  I haven't gotten mine yet and I am curious to see if everyone gets the same thing. It would be just my luck that this would be the ONE sub that does give everyone the same thing.

I'm with you.  I couldn't get this because I had just put through the order on the Insdier's Beauty Box (3 = buy 2 get 1 free) by Beauty Bar and had to sit on my hands...    

 

This box featured 4 brands, this is a little underwelming for a 'must have' sample box.  BrichBox my fav, always manages to squeeze in 5 to 7 brands in each box...  so that you 'sample' as many brands as possible.  The box did not at all come close to their hype... "eating cupcakes for breakfast".  

 

I'm just really surprised at the huge gap between Popsugar's MUSTHAVE's 'projected vlaue' vs. it's 'actual content'.  You do get to eat breakfast, only it wasn't cupcakes, but rather something kinda expensive that you sorta like... and feel almost okay about spending the money on, because you have a groupon discount.  

 

 

 

p.s. I've seen the Body Drench Pomegranate Crush Body Lotion online for $7, so it brings the value of the box to $95.  Maybe it's just first box hiccups and they'll get their act togehter after this first wave of response, otherwise I don't see this box being around for too long.

My box is in town but I probably won't see it for a while since the projected delivery date is Monday. I'm trying to keep an open mind about it because if it was advertised as having more diverse products, it probably will in the upcoming bags. That's why I was wondering if this one had a "theme". Who knows. I also appreciate that they are all full size products. I keep going back and forth about it in my head, trying to be optimistic here. 

post #202 of 311

Did everyone think this was more of a lifestyle box? I was not excpecting completely makeup/beauty and 2 food items.  I thought it was going to be a mix.  not cool Popsugar.  I'm signed up for beauty subs for makeup items.  I was hoping a mug, or a picture frame, candle, book, sunglasses something NOT makeup.  I'm going to try to go with the First box gaurentee but I signed up for 3 months.  I hope they give me a refund and do not make me pay for shipping to send the items back.  I also hope they just don't tact another box onto my 4 month sub to make up for it. Does anyone know the details?

post #203 of 311

This is what happens when I'm bored.  I was wondering why my package went right past me in the opposite direction so.... for anyone wondering why their packaging is going to certain cities first, it seems like Popsugar is using Fedex smart-post.  All packages are delivered to the nearest smart-post hub then taken to your local usps.

Seeing this, I am surely gonna cancel. I am due for the August box and I am excited to cancel. icon_lol.gif

post #208 of 311

I wonder if each month focuses on a different theme. (july beauty stuff). I ordered for august and on the blog it says "Join now to receive our August must-have essentials for your home and entertaining." which makes it sound like that bag would be stuff to use for your home. maybe...  icon_question.gif
