Holy cow! If you thought my December PopSugar Must Have Box was great, just wait until you get a peek at this Special Edition Box.
Four times a year, PopSugar puts out their Special Edition seasonal boxes. A regular PopSugar box costs $39.95 and a seasonal box costs $100. I realize it’s a steep price increase, believe me, but the value of what’s inside these boxes is usually mind-blowing.
So indulge with me as I tear through the contents of this special edition box!
I love how everything in this box seems to color coordinate.
Loeffler Randall Envelop Clutch ($70)
This is a real leather clutch. Normally, I purchase faux leather but when a company sends you a real leather bag, you take it! This clutch also appears to be a collaboration between PopSugar and Loeffler Randall, which means you cannot get this bag anywhere else. I feel classier just holding the dang thing.
Turkish-t Diamond Throw ($65)
Another exclusive as this blanket was designed with PopSugar in mind. I’m kind of ambivalent about receiving this throw. PopSugar has included Turkish towels in their boxes before and I’m not overly impressed. On the other hand it’s nice to have a blanket to snuggle up on the couch with. So it’s alright.
RMS Beauty Living Luminizer and Brightening Brush ($50)
I have not yet used this little pot of what has to be gold based on the price tag. I like that it comes with a little brush and I think it’s going to give a pretty highlight. That being said I would never spend this much on a highlighter, which is why it’s perfect to receive in a subscription box!
Illume Gilded Amberleaf Metallic Knob Tin ($23.50)
The top notes of the this candle are cedar and amber with hints of mandarin, vetiver, vanilla, and tobacco. Smells warm and comforting. Once the candle has burned down, this holder will continue to be a beautiful piece of home decor. I call it a win-win.
Droga Chocolates: Money on Honey ($7.95)
Dark chocolate covered caramels with a splash of sea salt. So very good. I know it’s kind of a food trend at the moment to put sea salt on chocolate, but I am all for it! Trendy or no, this is delicious chocolate.
Kate Somerville Exfolikate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment ($22)
I have heard about this product on YouTube but have never had the chance to give it a shot myself. I’m really excited to try this little exfoliater. The formula includes papaya, pineapple, and pumpkin enzymes as well as rosewood and cinnamon extracts. The enzymes act as a natural exfoliant and should help revitalize your skin tone.
Habit Cosmetics nail polish in 21 Nefertiti ($18)
This is a beautiful warm brown with golden shimmer. What makes this product so special (and likely expensive) is that it is infused with myrrh extract. Myrrh extract has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties so it should help strengthen your nails and treat your cuticles. This polish is also cruelty-free and vegan friendly as well as being 5-free. I painted my nails with this polish for the holidays and while it is a lovely, unique color, it chipped quickly. You also cannot smell the myrrh, which I can’t decide if that is a good thing or not. I’d say this is a special occasion polish for specific night rather than a long-wearing formula.
I’m really blown away by the value of my special edition box and am enjoying its contents immensely. The only product I’m not in love with is the throw, but I’ll still use it often.
For $100, this Special Edition Holiday Must Have Box is worth $256.45. I definitely got my money’s worth with this box!
Happy Holidays everyone and thanks for popping in!
