POPSUGAR October 2016 Must Have Box Review

I received this box on Saturday and it came earlier than I expected! I was hoping it would be just as good as last month's or even better. Especially since it is fall which is my favorite season of the year and October is one of my favorite months. I wanted to this box to include something cozy or warm that reflects what this month is all about! 

Disclaimer: POPSUGAR sent this box for me to try, so this is  sponsored post!

October Must Have Box

The theme is 
Warm Cozy

October Must Have Items! 

My Cup of Cocoa 
Dark Drinking Chocolate 

I am glad they included cocoa because I am serious cocoa drinker in fall and winter. 
It is much lighter than what I thought it would be since it says it is dark chocolate. Also it is not what I am use to but it is not that bad. 

Morning Culture 
Rise and Shine Diner Mug 

I love mugs especially ones with cute saying on it. So I am quite please that this was included in the box especially since cocoa was also in it. Ps. This would be a good gift idea for a coffee drinking friend or a cocoa lover!

Marshmallows not included I just love them on with cocoa! 

ColorStay Liquid Eye Pen

I tried to use this liner but I am not a make up kinda of person. And I am not a eye liner kinda of woman either! So this is not a item I will use very much. 

Makeup Eraser 
The Makeup Eraser Mini

I have heard of make up erasers but I do not own one because I rarely wear makeup! But it is useful for the times that I do actually wear it. Make sure you follow the instructions about washing the eraser before and after use.

Henri Bendel 
Pack able Umbrella 

I was surprised that a umbrella was included because I was hoping that a throw or scarf would be in the  October box.  But I am glad that I have an extra umbrella to have especially one that I can put in my purse. My other umbrellas that are own are to big to carry when I have to travel far. 


Brown Sugar Vanilla Shower Oil and Bubble Bath smells good and feels good to my skin. 
I am glad that it was included because it is something I really never think about buying but would love as a gift. I also like how it ties into the fragrances that most associate with fall.

Power Your Happy Book by Lisa Sugar 
Is a special extra is a memoir by the POPSUGAR's founder Lisa Sugar. The book is a good read if you want a little inspiration especially when it comes to career and personal life. 

Verdict: This box has some good points like the Lalicious Shower Oil and Bubble Bath or the Morning Culture Rise and Shine Diner Mug but it was not what I expected for an October box especially with the given theme. Some of these items would be great stocking stuffers if you find them online or in store.  I am just hoping next month will knock my socks off!
