Popsugar MustHave February Box


Hey guys!
I'm going to show you what came in the Popsugar MustHave box this month. 
I love love love this subscription box. I know every time it arrives I am going to have awesome new products to try and have not been disappointed in the selections they send each month. 
Even my kitties can't wait to see what's inside!
This month has a great combination of beauty, skin care, sweets, and miscellaneous items. The variety in these boxes is what I find most alluring. You get to test out a bit of everything. Pop sugar mostly sends full size products with an occasional travel/deluxe sample size. 
Often times they include a featured item. This Gorjana Brooks Jewelry Roll is really fun, bright and great for travel to keep jewelry organized. It has a playful cord to secure and the pebbled texture gives it a nice dimension. This retails for $45.
Here is the interior. It has 3 compartments to stash your jewelry and the quality is really quite nice. I look forward to using this the next time I take a trip.
On the left is NCLA nail lacquer in Rodeo Drive Royalty. What a stunning rouge! It seems like an opaque cream formula and I can't wait to paint on such a luscious red. These nail polishes retail for $16. On the bottem right is a travel tin wax candle from K. Hall Designs in scent Peony. It smells so dainty but seems like it could still fill a space with flowery goodness. The card claims it will burn up to 20 hours which is impressive for such a petite candle. It comes in a reusable tin. These sell for $11. 
When I saw this in the box I could not contain my excitement! I love lip products and this dual lipstick and gloss combo from ModelCo is a great addition. I have worn this twice and it feels really nice on my lips. The crayon color finishes nicely and doesn't transfer. Even when you top it with the gloss it definitely has staying power. The color is a very neutral pink and flattering on my skin tone. I can't find individual price for these but a pack with 3 shade combinations and an eyeliner is $49. 
The sweet treat Popsugar included this month are cinnamon heart candies from Sugar Wish. They give you a coupon code for 20% off a purchase at their online store. The concept is you purchase a gift code for your recipient and they are able to redeem for their candy of choice. The selection of candies they offer is extensive. Their prices seem kind of steep but it is a cute idea and there packaging is absolutely adorable. According to the websites pricing on a 4 pack of candies this bag of hearts comes out to approximately $5. On the right side is Nourish Organic Pure Hydrating Argan Oil Face Serum. I haven't tried this out but it says it's good for normal to dry skin. My skin can run oily and I'm worries that it could be too much for me. My fianc√© has dryer skin so perhaps I'll have him test it out if it doesn't work on me. It retails for $23.99 and this is a great size for travel. 
A lot of people were disappointed that popsugar included a drugstore product. I have been using this Dial Vitamin Boost Lotion Infused Body Wash with Vitamin B Complex and I am thoroughly enjoying it. I'm not sure what the scent is supposed to be but it is so pleasant, fruity, playful and very fresh. It lathers richly with a loofah and rinses easily. When I get out of the shower my skin feels soft and supple with moisture that lasts all day. The scent lingers beyond the shower and makes me feel fresh and clean. I cannot find exact pricing for this body wash but imagine it is similar to the other Dial body washes that run about $6. 

It is amazing how these subscription boxes can pack so much awesome into a small package. Totaled the items in this box come out around $120. The monthly subscription cost is $39.95. I feel like the price is an amazing deal for the products you receive. I will get use out of everything I recieved and am never disappointed with the selection of goodies each month. 

I hope you all had a great Monday! 
Let me know if there's any ideas you'd like me to post, swatches, tutorials, or reviews you'd like to see.

Thanks for reading!
Til next time,
Trish

  3. If you do any subscription boxes or are even just thinking about trying one, I recommend Popsugar. It's the best. If i could only choose one I would keep this one... It's offers the most variety and the best value. Most of my favorite products have come from Popsugar!
