Hello loves! I hope you all had a lovely Valentine’s Day! What did you end up doing? My hubby and I went out for an early dinner then came back home and relaxed with my cat in front of a cozy fire. We even popped open a bottle of 2003 vintage Dom Perignon! So, it was definitely a lovely evening 🙂
Keeping in the spirit of the holiday, the February POPSUGAR Must Have box was inspired by adoring, hearts, sexy, indulgence, and confidence. Let’s get right in to the review!
As usual with this subscription, each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
Tilo Heart Print Scarf (retail value $125). This scarf was exclusively designed for POPSUGAR Must Have subscribers! Although the fabric is a type of rayon (modal), it is silky-soft, super lightweight and sheer. Not to mention how cute it is with the fringe on the ends and heart pattern. I love the grey color of the scarf and the hearts are subtle enough that you can wear it any time – not just on Valentine’s Day.
Beautycounter Nourishing Cleansing Balm (retail value $50). I love receiving beauty products in this subscription box because POPSUGAR always tends to include beauty products from brands that are ingredient-conscious. This brand is no different. The ingredients Beautycounter uses are mostly all-natural and organic. They are also non-toxic. This cleansing balm is intended for cleansing your skin and removing your makeup and other impurities, whilst providing hydration. It contains vitamin C to brighten your skin and raspberry and cranberry seed oils to hydrate. The balm includes a little spatula for application and a super soft muslin cloth that you dampen and use to gently wipe off the balm.
JewelryStorm Endless Arrow Ring (retail value $28) + 30% off coupon. A crystal embellished gold arrow ring that you can wear alone or use as a midi ring. I have pretty fat fingers so this ring was definitely tight and fits only on my pinky finger. Fortunately, you can open the front a bit and adjust the size which I did here. Still, I think it works best for me as a midi ring.
Fringe Studio Hello Beautiful Square Tray (retail value $14). How pretty is this glass tray? It will look so beautiful on your vanity. The words on this tray are metallic gold and so is the entire backside. Here it is with the JewelryStorm ring included in this box to better show scale.
Victoria’s Secret Coconut Milk Hydrating Body Lotion (retail value $18) + $20 Reward Card + Sport Socks (a special extra!). OMG, as soon as I took the lotion out of the box, I immediately smelled the coconut and it reminded me of summer – which I am very much looking forward to right now. It’s been so cold and snowy in New Jersey and I’m pretty much tired of it! I have not tried Victoria’s Secret lotions in a while and was happy to see that this one has a pump and is also paraben-free. The formula is lightweight and absorbed quickly. The scent is sweet but if you don’t like the scent of coconut I would suggest staying away from this because the scent comes on strong initially then fades away over time. I happen to love it.
Foodstirs Heart Cookie Mix (retail value $12.95). This is a mix for Valentine’s Day sugar cookies – yum! In the kit you get the cookie mix, pink sprinkles, a heart shaped cookie cutter and a recipe card (Foodstirs also has a Baker’s Club subscription, and they included a 50% off coupon code for you first month). This kit is free of artificial ingredients, GMOs, and preservatives. Foodstirs is co-founded by Sarah Michelle Gellar (who knew!).
This is another great box from POPSUGAR! I’m totally impressed with the items this month, and it’s just perfect for the holiday. The total retail value of this box is about $273 and you only pay $39.95 + tax!
