PopSugar Must Have January 2015 *May Contain Spoilers*

Recommended Posts

. Oh! And I also swapped for one that I only wear around the house when I'm drinking wine in my sweats because it makes my husband giggle (thanks, Nina Garcia)

 

 

Haaaa, I love my ballin' hat for the same reason, and pair it with wine and sweats as well.  Both the NG one and the joie one don't look right with my head shape so I'm really hoping the slouchy one works.  I wasn't super excited about this box initially (even though it's a solid effort) but I'm getting more and more excited every day!

For what it is worth - I got my box today and the hat works! I look ridiculous in it styled the "slouchy" way - but it actually looks really cute on me if I pull it down so that the pom fits the top of my head and then I roll up the band.  Doing it this way you can make it a little slouchy or not slouchy at all.  Hooray!

I didn't get the box, but I just swapped for the beanie & I kind of love it. It's soft & the faux fur pom ups the coolness for me. I've never really been a beanie girl, but now I have the chic Joie one & an everyday slouchy one. Oh! And I also swapped for one that I only wear around the house when I'm drinking wine in my sweats because it makes my husband giggle (thanks, Nina Garcia)

I'm really hoping for more home goods this year from PS.

Also considering trying to swap for the cup since someone said it fits under the Keurig. Are they all pink though? Does the card show variations?

You can also custom design cups on their site, which I think it cool.  Maybe the coupon code works for custom designed ones too?  I'm going to try and get a purple one at some point.  Code is POPSUGAR

 I confess, I thought I would hate this box, but seeing things in person changed my mind. I love the hat! I was surprised it was actually flattering on me.

 

  Granola is always welcome, DH is very excited about the flavor combo. The cup will be perfect for my Earl Grey, I can make a double cup :)

 

  The cream sounds as if I can use it, I will test it on my arm tonight to check for a reaction. The eye patches sound interesting, again I will have to sacrifice one to check for possible reactions first. The towel will get used as a face drying towel in the bathroom. It seems it would be gentle when patted over the damp face.

 

  The tattoos will go into CS stash. Much better box than I expected!

Got my box yesterday! It's my first Popsugar Must Have Box and I'm so happy with it.

 

Beanie- like many others, I was worried that it would look silly or be too young of a style for me. I'm heading into my mid 30s and am at the stage where I can't get away with some styles. However, this hat has a sophisticated shape and color and it helps that the Pom pom is faux fur. I really love it.

 

FAB- I'd been hearing about this cream/ product line from beauty you tubers. I'm elated that I get to try it. I tested it out on my hand, and it's so light my skin just drank it in.

 

Granola- Anything with peanut butter and dark chocolate is a win for me! Plus, I needed healthy snacks for work. Unfortunately, I do a lot of stress eating at work, and I usually grab the closest thing to munch on which is usually candy or chips.

 

Keep cup- I'm literally ALWAYS in need of a travel mug. This one is unique because it's glass. And I like that the band gives it a pop of pink.

 

Eye pads- never tried using eye pads before. But I welcome anything that hydrates any part of my body. I'm looking forward to trying them out.

 

Jewel tattoos- I will say they seem a little out of place for January, but I'd been wanting to try out this trend. So I will set them aside for now and definitely try them this summer.

 

Yoga towel- I've been lax on my yoga practice over the past few months. This being included in the box has reminded me to get back to my routine. Also, I was considering wearing gloves during yoga because, for some reason, my fingers keeping slipping ( especially during downward dog). So perfect timing on the towel!

I tried rolling the hat up so the pom pom is a little more perky and I am a fan of how it looks. I like the slouchy look too but rolling it up seems to really help make it warmer since most of it is double layered.

 

Edit: I tried the Ultra Repair cream. I think I may have misjudged it. At first I thought it was only for moisturizing the face. I tried it out on my legs and it really soaked in and moisturized them well. I shave them almost every single day so during the winter they get really dry. I tend to like lotions with more fragrance but I guess it's better no fragrance than a scent I dislike. 

 

I am really excited to use the coffee cup! I am not a big coffee drinker but it will be great for cider or cocoa...or juice, noodles, cereal, oatmeal, etc. A cup with a lid is very handy for lots of things. I do wish it was a 16 oz size though.

 

I think I will try the yoga towel to dry my hair after I wash it. Not sure how I feel about the texture of the fabric.

 

I loveee eye gels, but I haven't tried this brand. I put those in the fridge right away. I think I might use them in the bath tomorrow. I wonder if they are scented at all?

 

The tattoos are a little silly and seem summery or new years themed to me. I will try them for fun though since I have two packs of them now (got one pack in my stocking).

Just got my box last night and I'm so glad {it seems!} PopSugar has recovered from their weird shipping / billing issues...at least for me. PSMH continues to be a "hit" box for me!

 

Using the mug today for my coffee; I'm going to keep it at work at my desk for tea. I like that there's a lid; it seems to keep the drink a little warmer longer. As an additional plus, there's perhaps less chance of spilling on my keyboard!?

 

The slouchy hat is cute, but looks a little goofy on me. I had it on this morning (slouchy-style) and thought I looked a bit like a homeless person, no offense to homeless people. I'll try it when I pop out to lunch using the "folded" method.

 

I have the granola here as a snack; it's tasty! I'll look for more flavors when I go to the grocery store.

 

The yoga towel went straight in my gym bag. I think it'll be cute to use just as a "sweat towel" since my cheap gym doesn't provide towels.

 

The tattoos seem pretty, but will be more appropriate for summer. 

 

The FAB lotion seems intriguing; I didn't open it yet as I don't want to expedite its expiration before I'll get to use it - I'll be adding it to my stash to use up. I have a bunch of lotions currently in rotation.

 

The eye pads seem interesting. I'll have to try them on my next "spa-night". I'm sure I'll be getting the side-eye from my husband. Maybe I'll wear the slouchy hat to compliment the look.

I got my box last night.  Does anyone know if I get a 3 or 6 month subscription if my box will go out sooner.  I feel like I see spoilers a week before my box is even shipped.  I currently am paying month to month.

 

I really like the hat even though I thought i would hate it.

 

I love love love the coffee mug but i wish it was a larger size.  The medium really doesn't hold that much when i make a latte for myself at home

 

The lotion was really nice.   I was surprised at how well it moisturized. 

 

the granola is fabulous and i had to hide it up in a cabinet so i didn't eat it all.  YUMMY!

 

I wont use the tattoos but thats ok.

 

the towel will probably get used more as a face towel.  I guess i don't sweat enough to carry a towel at the gym---probably why i cant eat more of that granola

Total lurker. But I wanted to say that this is possibly my fav box to date. Nothing in it is amazing, but everything in it (well, ok everything but the tattoos) will get used by ME (!!!).

My fav item is hands down the keep cup, I've been using it every second since it arrived. I've always loved them but just never made the jump to buy one. So yeah, I got the coupon and promptly went and bought four more cups. Can we say buying problems?

I think I threw my code away. Is it generic?  Everyone seems to love these cups. I'm not going to keep mine. But I am more of a latte person. 

EDIT: and also only like having matching items.  And don't love it enough to buy a 2nd.

I made cocoa in my new mug today! The Swiss Miss box says to use 3/4 cup of water and one pouch of mix.  I am a rulebreaker though and usually make it with one cup of water and two pouches of mix because it tastes richer. I get the Marshmallow Lover's kind because it comes with 4.5x more marshmallows than their regular marshmallow cocoa.This cup is the perfect size!

Am i the only one with no box and no tracking ? :-(

 

Same here.  It's so weird how some months I get mine way before my friends and others I'm way after.  I assume it will get here eventually though.

Ugh they get me every time. Might order another one just to get another cup!

I've been a committed PSMH subscriber for a few years now and I've been lurking and made limited comments here on the boards. But, I've been seeing comments from a few people who go month-to-month and use promo codes to discount their monthly boxes rather than having the "sign-me-up-and-take-my-money-automatically-every-month" plan. Talk to me about that. I could use to save some money! :)

 

Are there consistent promo codes that you're able find so that you're still receiving a box each month? Do I have to "send it as a gift" rather than to myself each month?

 

Thanks!

I'm trying this for myself for the first time too.  There doesn't seem to be any pro to getting a subscription anymore?  If I can get spoilers AND a coupon - month to month all the way.

for next 24 hours the JAN box is 50% off using code SAVE50, it may work in your account you can pop it in and try, some have been able to use codes with gift but since the new website it may just work on your account, in the past if you had another email you could set up another account - the last month I recall not having some sort of code was last July (but not 100% sure) we don't ever know for sure but for the most part it has been consistent - they offered a great deal on Black Friday so I think a lot signed up with that promo for 6 or 12 months....HTH

 

I have not rec'd my box, no tracking, no one responded to my emails either - it just says next box JAN and that's it! I'm happy though to see people talking about the items again!

 

anyone else in my little boat here?!? not that I'm in a rush to get a hat in FL but it matches the gloves from last year, right? at least we have a set!

 

also, is everyone being charged tax now? I know in CA they were required to charge but anything I've bought charges me tax in FL...

I'm planning on referring my sister for the 50% off deal. If she signs up and chooses "gift" vs autorenewing her sub, will I still get referral credit? Thanks!!

Was going to pass on this one, but when the 50% off email came in, I had to pull the trigger!   :) Yay!

 

I am buying the box for the First Aid Cream and Coffee Cup, so it's an awesome value for me! 

 

I'll probably hand off the hat and tattoos to my daughter - it rarely gets cold enough to need hats where I live and I'm too old to use it as a fashion statement (lol)!
