It’s almost Valentine’s Day! I’m so glad POPSUGAR mailed these boxes out early so I was able to treat myself to an early Valentine’s Day present. In the past all the February boxes have been amazing, and I definitely had high expectations. I was beyond excited to see this pink box on my doorstep!
POPSUGAR Must Have is a subscription service that sends a variety of items for women that are curated by the POPSUGAR editors. Items typically include food, beauty, home, among other miscellaneous things. Each month is $39.99/month, but you can use the code REFER5 to get $5 off your first month.
What a fun box! I was thrilled to see some familiar brands that I really adore, and there’s plenty of new stuff as well.
TribeAlive Foldover Clutch – Atitlán Brocade | $98.00
This was the spoiler that was released ahead of time, so I knew to expect this clutch. But the pictures really don’t do it any justice. The material is a thick woven texture and feels very high quality. The patterns are simply gorgeous. Even though I was a little worried about the cream color getting dirty, now that I have it in hand I feel like it would be pretty easy to spot clean.
The way the patterns are cut makes this clutch beautiful from every side, no matter which way it’s folded.
I got a little carried away with the pictures of this clutch. Just wanted to showcase how pretty it is! The interior is lined with plain canvas.
This is to show the size of the clutch. It’s big enough to fit all your essentials: keys, phone, credit cards, with plenty of room left over for makeup and other knick knacks.
Juara Candlenut Body Creme | $35.00
I’ve had good luck with Juara products before and this is no exception. I swear, this is some of the most moisturizing body cream I’ve ever used! It absorbs really well and leaves my skin so smooth. There’s no greasy feeling afterwards, not even a little bit! The scent is subtle and smells very fresh and bright. The size of this tub is very generous so I’m sure it will last me for a long time. A little goes a long way! Really happy with this find and will be repurchasing when I eventually run out!
Battington Lashes Monroe 3D Silk Lashes | $26.00
I couldn’t be more excited to get high quality false lashes! I have a ton of special events to go to this spring (hello, wedding season) and I love wearing false lashes when I get dolled up. My natural lashes are short and stick-straight, so falsies are a really good way to get a big dramatic look without caking on mascara. I was ready to buy a couple pairs from Sephora but now I have these to play with, and I am super pumped!
Silk lashes are even lighter than the synthetic ones I usually buy, and tend to look more natural as well. I am really looking forward to using these because they are the “3D” lashes, which means they have several layers for a more fluffy look. One thing I do want to note about these: the glue that is included is very hard to work with. I personally swear by Duo Lash Adhesive, and recommend anyone else who is interested in trying false lashes to use it! Using the right glue makes lash application a million times easier!
Kris Nations Jewelry Love Script Necklace | $48.00
We’ve gotten Kris Nations jewelry from POPSUGAR in the past, and the packaging is just so adorable I can never have enough. The quality of their jewelry is good for the price tag, and I find it is always amazing for layering. This love necklace is dainty and perfect for a minimal look on its own, but looks even better layered with other gold necklaces.
The necklace and chain are 18k gold plated. So far I’ve never had an issue with the gold rubbing off, and I’ve had Kris Nations earrings for well over a year now (from the September 2015 PSMH box). It has held up really well over time!
Chuao Chocolatier Cinnamon Cereal Smooch | $6.00
Another brand repeat, but one that I will never complain about. Chuao is my favorite chocolate brand! I’ve ordered from their website many times in the past and love every flavor that they offer. It’s all so so so delicious and the textures are always interesting. The honeycomb and firecracker flavors are my two favorites. I’ll never turn down a full size bar of a new flavor that I’ve never tried before, so thank you POPSUGAR! No Valentine’s Day box would be complete without chocolate 🙂
Revlon Super Lustrous Love is on Lipstick | $7.99
This is a special extra for this box, meaning it’s sponsored and isn’t supposed to count towards the value of the box. I always like finding new drugstore products that work for me, so normally I would try this out. But since I have SO much lipstick sitting around, I’ll be adding it to my donate pile. My local women’s shelter is always in search of new cosmetics donations because many of the women aren’t able to afford makeup. Not only is makeup useful for job interviews, but they are also a nice luxury to enjoy. As a fellow makeup addict, I completely get it!
Whew, what a box! As usual, the value is astonishing. This box contains $222.99 worth of stuff for only $39.99. Incredible, right? I’m never disappointed with the value that POPSUGAR manages to pack into one box. No other box out there compares!
The curation felt really perfect for me. The clutch is so cute and will go with a ton of outfits. The lotion was an amazing discovery and I already have plans to buy more when I run out. I was just about to go buy false lashes, and now I get to try really cool 3D silk ones! The necklace is a cute little extra that I can easily gift. Plus, this box included my favorite chocolate brand! And on top of it all, I have a lipstick to give away. Seriously, it doesn’t get more perfect. I’m very excited to see what March will bring, but it seems so far away now! I guess that’s the only down side to getting your box early in the month!
