PopSugar Must Have for October brings beauty, brains, fitness and food

October from the popsugar.com website

Surprise, surprise. I’m back with more subscription boxes. I do have a problem but I’m enjoying what I’m getting lately even if I’m going to outgrow my house soon. This is my third PopSugar Must Have box and it was a pleasant revelation to open. The September box was the best yet but you’ll see that the October box has plenty to enjoy and is well worth the $35 plus tax it cost me.

The categories for this October Must Have box are food, home, fitness, beauty and brains.

For food there were two items: Pirate’s Booty Aged White Cheddar and Dylan’s Candy Bar Gummy Bears. Both delicious treats.

Home is Red Flower Petal Top Candle.These were sent in different aromas and mine is Japanese Peony. It’s a beautiful candle that lasts for approximately 3 hours and is strongly scented. They cost $38 individually so if candles are your thing then the rest of the box could be considered bonuses.

Fitness is a pair of Crescent Moon ExerSocks. These also came in a variety of colors, mine were light gray. They suggest wearing these when doing yoga, pilates or using the exercise DVD that was in the August box. (Value $25 for 3 pairs)


Beauty was a perfect fit for October since it was Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The box contained the OPI Pink of Hearts 2012 duo of nail polish. The shades are You Glitter Be Good To Me and I Think In Pink. I’ve bought previous year’s OPI Pink of Hearts and I’m glad I hadn’t gotten around to this one yet.

There was also a shampoo and conditioner from Clear Scalp and Hair Therapy. It’s always great when you receive both the poo and dish instead of just one.

And last is brains – a book – but not just any book. A best seller by J.K.Rowlings: The Casual Vacancy. I was very surprised to see this hardcover in the box.

The November box is already sold out but they are taking reservations for the December box.  I’d love it if you used my affiliate link if you decide to start this subscription. I’d be able to earn a free box and I use items I don’t use in BIZ giveaways. Thanks if you do http://popsu.gr/yqR . I’m continuing my subscription to this box even though it’s the most expensive but I do think I’ve gotten my money’s worth each time and I can’t wait to see what’s next. — Marcia


  1. WOW!!! What an interesting selection of things!! You have been getting some really exceptional boxes lately!!

  2. Lola, that’s why I can’t stop my subscriptions. I’m obsessed. The newest PopSugar is in the mail. I can’t wait to see it.

  3. love the opi colors, so pretty!

  4. Now that’s a great box! I cancelled all my subscriptions because I wasn’t using of the products. My favorite thing in the WORLD are gummy bears!!!!!!!!! Think they’d last until July? LOL

  5. Sorry Cindy but the gummy bears are gone. But I’ll buy your some in July!! Two out of my three PopSugar boxes have been terrific.

  6. OPI always does beautiful colors for BCA.

  7. Wow at the book and the full sized(?) shampoo and conditioner!

  8. The shampoo and conditioner do say they are full sized. The book has been number 1 on the best seller list and continued on the top ten for 2 months now so it’s amazing to have this.

  9. Once again I am loving everything in this box!! I just wish they would offer payment by Paypal, I need to use up my balance!

  10. @Tina, I can transfer money from my paypal into my checking account. Maybe you can too.

  11. Unbelievable box of goodies! I know you subscribe to all of the boxes…. If you were to pick one, which would it be? I smell a new post coming along!

  12. @Carol, even though PopSugar isn’t specifically beauty I think this is the one I’d stick with. I think they all have something to offer but this one is unusual and luxurious.
