Popsugar Must Have is a monthly lifestyle subscription box for women. Each month they send out products from beauty, fitness, food etc... The cost of the box is $39.95 per month. 

First look inside the box. 

Everything in the box.

TRIBE ALIVE: FOLDOVER CLUTCH - ATITLAN BROCADE. Retail $98.00. This is a very nice clutch. The clutch has a different design on each side. Each bag is also handwoven, which provides subtle variations to make each bag one of a kind. Tribe Alive partners with artisans around the world to employ impoverished women at fair-trade wages, and give them access to safe jobs. I believe Tribe Alive has been in a few subscriptions boxes also.

One side of the bag.

And the other side of the bag.

JUARA SKINCARE: CANDLENUT BODY CREME. Retail $35.00. This is such a great company. I've tried the products before and I really like them. This cream has candlenut oil and is mixed with vitamin E so it will retain elasticity, soothe your skin, and give you a nice glow.

CHUAO CHOCOLATIER: CINNAMON CEREAL SMOOCH CHOCOLATE BAR. Retail $6.00. All I can say is YUMMM. This was really good.

KRIS NATIONS JEWELRY: LOVE SCRIPT NECKLACE. Retail $48.00. This is so pretty. I like simple jewelry so this is perfect. The necklace is gold-plated.

BATTINGTON LASHES: MONROE 3D SILK LASHES. Retail $28.00. The lashes also came with a tube of glue. I don't use fake lashes so I'm not sure if I will be using these or not but I guess its nice to have one on hand. You can also reuse the lashes up to 25 times.


REVLON: REVLON SUPER LUSTROUS LOVE IS ON LIPSTICK. Retail $7.99. This lipstick was a special extra item in the box. Its a very nice shade of red. In the picture it looks more of an orange red but its actually a deeper red.

The birchbox refresh and reset box is a limited edition box for birchbox. This limited edition box is $45.00.

This box is bigger then the regular monthly boxes.

Everything in the box.

POINTS STUDIO: JETT GRIP LIGHT SOCKS. The retail is $12.00. I don't think they are the cutest pair of socks but they are pretty comfy.

The bottom of the socks have the grips on them so you won't slip when using them.

AVENE: THERMAL SPRING WATER. The retail is $9.00. This thermal spring water is great to refresh your skin. You can use this hydrating mist as a toner, a post workout refresher. or to even calm your skin when it's stressed. This also sets makeup. 

R + CO: ANALOG CLEANSING FOAM CONDITIONER. The retail is $7.25. This conditioner has a formula that used organ oil so it can soften and nourish. I already have this and i'm almost done with it so I'm happy to get another one in the box.

ARROW: REFRESH ON-THE-GO CLEANSING CLOTHS. The retail is $12.00. These wipes are nice to carry with you when you need to be refreshed during the day or after a workout. The cloths are made with sooting, calming cucumber and oat extracts. They also have a nice refreshing scent to them.

LIVING PROOF: PERFECT HAIR DAY (PHD) DRY SHAMPOO. The retail is $12.00. This dry shampoo will soak up oil, sweat and odor.

EYEKO: SPORT WATERPROOF MASCARA. The value is $13.00. This mascara is packed with 11 different natural fruit extracts. This mascara is also waterproof and smudge-proof. 

HUM NUTRITION: RAW BEAUTY GREEN SUPERFOOD POWDER - MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP INFUSION. The retail is $5.00. The box comes with 3 packets inside. I have not tried this out yet but these are supposed to boost energy and enhance skin's radiance. They are full of 39 beauty-boosting superfoods.

S'WELL: 9 OZ BOTTLE. The retail is $25.00. This is the main reason why I purchased this box. The water bottle is non-toxic stainless steel. It also keeps your cold drinks cold for 24 hours and your hot drinks hot for 12 hours.

Everything in the box.

R+Co OBLIVION Clarifying Shampoo and Restorative Gel Conditioner. I haven't tried this shampoo and conditioner out yet but I do like the fact that they sent both the shampoo and conditioner in the box.

Sunday Riley Good Genes All-in-One Lactic Acid Treatment. So far I have used this product two times and I like it so far. When I use it I do feel a tingling feeling on my skin. I would love to purchase the full size of this but its a little pricy so I'm pretty sure I will not be buying this anytime soon, the full size is $105.00.

ARROW ENDURE Water-Resistant Mascara. This mascara is paraben-free and vegan. I thought this was an okey mascara. I didn't really give me too much volume but it did last all day.

Avene Soothing Moisture Mask. I haven't had a chance to use this yet since I'm using a different mask right now, but I do like this brand so I'm excited to try this out. 

Juliette Has a Gun MMMM... I think I have said this a few times already but I don't like getting fragrance samples in my boxes especially since I put that in my profile. This scent is not horrible but its not anything I would use either.

First look inside the box

Everything in the box

Dilettante Chocolates Coffee Trio TruffleCremes. I believe they send out a few different flavors in these. I received the Espresso flavor. Im not a huge coffee lover so when I saw these I was going to give them away but I'm so glad that I tried one because it was really good. If I saw these I would definitely pick up a bag. 

Bakery On Main Peanut Butter & Chocolate Granola Bar. This bar is Dairy-Free, GMO-Free and Kosher. All I can say is yummm. I have never seen or heard of this brand but if I happen to find these in the store I would again pick up a box.

Truvia Natural Sweetener and Truvia Nectar. This sweetener is Dairy-Free, Nut-Free, Soy-Free, Vegan and Vegetarian. I don't believe I have ever had truvia before but I know people like it so I'll give it a try. I also like that they added the 2 samples of nectar.

MySuperFoods Whole Grain Cookies. The flavor that came in my box was the chocolate cookies. These cookies are GMO-Free, Kosher, Nut-Free, Organic and they have 16 grams of whole grains and hey are made with coconut oil & chia seeds. I'm going to be saving these for my daughters as a snack. I'm sure they will love them.

Lundberg Family Farms Sea Salt Rice Chips. The Chips are Dairy-Free, GMO-Free, Kosher, Vegan and Vegetarian. The chips are Gluten-Free and are made with organic grains. These were nice and thin with the right amount of salt to them.

Aloha True Chocolate Plant-Based Protein Dietary Supplement. This is Dairy-Free, GMO-Free, Organic, Soy-Free, Vegan and Vegetarian. This is a complete source of protein, it promotes lean muscle formation, it supports healthy metabolism and it boosts energy and stamina. I'm not so sure about this one. I've heard mixed reviews on this so I'm not sure if I want to try it or just give it away.

Pirouline Dark Chocolate Creme De Pirouline Rolled Wafers. This wafers are Vegetarian. Yumm, I've had these plenty of times. This was a nice treat.

Dave's Sweet Tooth Milk Chocolate Toffee. This is Gluten-Free, Kosher and Vegetarian. These were really good also. The pieces weren't as hard as other toffee that I have tried which I liked that it wasn't as hard. This was also very good.

Lily's Sweets Original Dark Chocolate Bar. This bar is Gluten-Free, GMO-Free and Kosher. If you like chocolate then you will like this.

Overall: This was a great January box. So many of the items were new to me and also really good.
