October 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box

I have decided that going forward I won’t share all of my PopSugar boxes, but this was the most random PopSugar box I have ever received, so I thought it would be fun to share the contents.

Note: This post contains referral links. If you decide to purchase a PopSugar box, I would love it if you used my link.

This post contains affiliate links. If you click on them, I get a tiny commission.

Honest Sea Salt + Sugar Body Scrub ($17): I love the Honest Company, and this body scrub smells great and moisturizes well.

Richer Poorer Hope Slipper Socks ($15): I love slipper socks, and not only are these pink, purchasing them supports Right Action for Women.

Savvy Sleepers 100% Satin Pillow Case (Standard Size) ($36): This goes down as one of the strangest items I have received from a PopSugar box, but a new pillowcase never hurts. According to the package, satin pillowcases can prevent hair damage and nightly face wrinkles. They feel really soft and even have a secret pocket for jewelry or love notes (lol).

Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling ($25 retail, $15 on Amazon): I didn’t read Mindy Kaling’s last book (I’m not big on memoirs), but I love that this book is about her journey to find contentment and excitement in her adult life. I think that’s something most people can relate to, and I will probably read it the next time there is a memoir category in a reading challenge.

Easy, Tiger Brown Paper Liquor Bag Set ($8): I love the idea of using these cute wine bags for housewarming gifts.

Belgian Boys Stroopwafels ($1.50): Chris and I always open my PopSugar boxes together because I give him the food items. He was so excited about the stroopwafels. We loved stroopwafels when we studied abroad in The Netherlands (and even brought back as many as our suitcases could hold), so we love that we can get them in the United States now.

Special Extras:

It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product ($9): This was just a sample, but I loved it. I’ve tried many leave-in products, but I don’t think my hair has ever felt this soft.

Danielle Stevens Jewelry Monogram Gift Card ($40): I never use these gift cards because usually the products are so much higher than the gift card. That was the case with this one, and I didn’t really see anything I wanted.

What do you think of the October 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box? What is your favorite item?


  1. Wow! Seems like a good box. I read Mindy's first book and mostly loved it, I never watched the office so I didnt quite follow everything she wrote about. I just had stroopwafels for the first time last month and loved them!!

  2. i read Mindy's first book but don't really have a desire to read her new one. Not in a bad way, just in an 'eh' way. I might wait for a reading challenge, like you said lol.
    that is hilarious about the pillowcase. it's so weird, because most people would want a matching pair, right? we have satin / silk pillowcases but i don't like them. it's supposed to help with hair and oil and blah blah but i prefer my old school ones lol.

  3. What a great box. I have been wanting to try that It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In, good to know that you liked it.

  4. Slipper sock are quite possibly one of the greatest things ever invented! My grandma is a big fan of satin pillowcases. I'm not sure that they actually do anything, but they feel luxurious. I love Mindy, but it probably would have been better had they sent the audiobook. Comedic memoirs just aren't that awesome as a traditional book.

  5. I use the It's A 10 product! This box would be perfect for me! I love Mindy. I have been thinking about a satin pillowcase because of the hair thing. Fuzzy socks are ALWAYS a win.

  6. Slipper socks are my best friend especially in the colder months since my feet have poor circulation and just can't get warm. Love that these are pink and represent a great cause <3

  7. I never heard of these boxes before! Seems fun though to always get surprises.. I just have a weird anxiety about subscriptions because I feel like I'd forget and then my account will get overdrawn LOL

  8. That really is an eclectic group of things that you received this month! I've heard great things about Mindy's first book, but I haven't read it yet, so I'm glad that you liked her new book. The Liquor Bag set does sound like a cute little extra for gift giving!

  9. Popsugar box sounds like it has a lot of good stuff in it! I've been tempted to get a subscription box but I just can't decide which one to go for. The silk pillowcase would be pretty comfy to sleep on, I hope it lives up to it's claims. I used to have It's a 10 leave in conditioner and I really liked it!

    1. PopSugar is my favorite subscription box-it's so fun to get it every month! I'm really curious about the pillowcase-definitely trying it out soon! :)

  10. Pretty jealous you go the mindy kaling book - that alone would be worth it to me! I love hearing about these boxes! So keep doing them lol! xo, Biana

  11. A random but very good box! I'm glad you're loving the It's a 10 - one of my favorite hair products!

  12. I've heard great things about It's a 10 Miracle leave-in product. Did you let your hair air dry or blow dry it and it felt soft?

  13. a satin pillowcase is one of my must haves--i have been using one since 1998 and never have bed head! i just wake up and run my fingers through my hair, no brushing needed. it sounds like a good box this month!

  14. how cute! to be honest, I'm so sick of those beauty sample boxes, I like how this has more items in it! LIk ea book! that's so cool
