February 2015 PopSugar Must Have Subscription Box Review

February 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box

Yay!v My February 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box is here! I have been subscribing to PopSugar since their very first box back in July 2012 and probably will subscribe forever.  I just love them.

If you aren’t familiar with them, PopSugar Must Have Box is an exciting monthly box full of fun, must-have picks across fashion, beauty, home decor, fitness, and more, which is delivered to your door on a monthly basis. Boxes include full-size products and premium items including tried-and-true classics, celebrity favorites, and brands consumers have yet to discover worth over $100!

The Box

PopSugar typically ships via FedEx Smart Post, but this month they shipped via FedEx Ground.  I think it was in part to try and make sure everyone received their boxes in time for Valentine’s Day and in part to make up for some of the shipping delays they have been having lately.  It will be back to FedEx Smart Post in March, but I was happy to get my box so fast this month!

February 2015 PopSugar Must Have Subscription Box Review

First Look

I always know exactly what’s coming in PopSugar because I look at spoilers, but it doesn’t make opening the box any less exciting.  Seeing it all in person is better than just looking at pictures online.

February 2015 PopSugar Must Have Subscription Box Review

The Information Card

The February 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box was inspired by “One Love, Hearts & Arrows, Red Hot, Devine Desserts and Pampering” and included the following items:

~Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush ($26): I think I said in a different subscription box review that I was already overloaded on blush, but I will make an exception for Tarte!  It’s a gorgeous color and gives you a natural looking flush.  Great stuff!

Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush

~U.S. Apothecary Rose Water Bubble Bath ($30):  Ohhh, how fancy is this?  The bubble bath is in a real glass bottle and just looks and feels so luxurious.  It’ll leave you smelling like roses too.

~ACME Party Box Company Bamboo Heart Cutting Board & Cheese Knife (PopSugar Exclusive) ($32): I think this is my favorite item in the box. B and I aren’t going anywhere for Valentine’s Day, so maybe we’ll have a little wine and cheese feast with this adorable set.

ACME Party Box Company Bamboo Heart Cutting Board & Cheese Knife

~Bauble Bar Mini Arrow Pendant Necklace (Silver) ($32): This arrow pendant was sent in gold and silver and I am very happy with the silver I received.  PopSugar has sent us all sorts of different jewelry pieces throughout the years, but the small, dainty pieces are my favorites.  Probably because they are for everyday wear and that’s more me.

~Figs & Rouge 100% Natural Balm (Lemon Berry) ($8): Love this stuff!  We’ve gotten this brand in a few boxes (ipsy and GLOSSYBOX come to mind) and it’s just fabulous. The balm is lightly tinted and moisturizing and their packaging is fun. I am so excited about this!

February 2015 PopSugar Must Have Subscription Box Review

Figs & Rouge 100% Natural Balm

~Chuao Chocolatier Ravishing Rocky Road Bar ($4): I have tried a few flavors of these bars (Target sells some), but never this one.  B is a huge fan of Rocky Road ice-cream, so I am going to save this for us to sample together.  Maybe with that cheese & wine on Valentine’s Day.

~Special Extra: Sally Beauty FingerPaints Nail Color (Pink Imagination) ($5.49): This polish is supposed to give you “intense color, durable shine and a long-lasting finish” with just one coat.  Meh.  I am not sure about that.  Maybe it’s because my color is so light, but I think it needs two coats to make it look good.

February 2015 PopSugar Must Have Subscription Box Review

Special Extra: Sally Beauty FingerPaints Nail Color

All totaled I came up with a value of $137.49 for the February 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box.  I absolutely loved this box and think PopSugar has really been stepping up their game the past few months.  Part of the reason I like them so much is because they send a mixture of items – it’s not all make-up or all jewelry or kitchen stuff, it could be anything! And they select items that fit my tastes perfectly.

January 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box

Yes! My January 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box has arrived! I was hoping it would arrive yesterday, but today is almost as good ;).

If you aren’t familiar with them, PopSugar Must Have Box is an exciting monthly box full of fun, must-have picks across fashion, beauty, home decor, fitness, and more, which is delivered to your door on a monthly basis.

The Box

PopSugar Must Have Box ships via FedEx Smart Post and took just five days to arrive.  SmartPost must have changed their shipping routes and I love it.

We received spoilers on this box last week, but there is nothing like getting the box and checking everything out for yourself. Sometimes you’ll find you love things more when you have them in your hands!

January 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box Review

The Information Card

The January 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box was inspired by “Rejuvenate, Fresh Start, Snow, Glimmer, Energize and Refresh” and included the following items:

~Jack+Lucy Pom Pom Hat ($32): Jack + Lucy is the same company we received gloves from in the January 2014 Must Have Box. I still have mine and they will be great with this slouchy hat.  I love the pom pom on it and have actually wanted to get one.  I am so glad I didn’t though because now I have this.

Jack + Lucy Pom Pom Hat

~KeepCup Brew 12oz ($26): KeepCups are the perfect way to drink coffee on the go. They “replicates disposable cup sizes so you get correct and consistent portioning of coffee and milk in the size you desire” and they also fit under your coffee machine, which as you may know, many coffee travel mugs do not.  Plus, of course, this is really cute and stylish.

January 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box Review

LeepCup Brew 12-Ounce Reusable Coffee Cup

~Skin Jewel Tattoos (Empire) ($18): I think this are cool and I know they are really in right now, but I have no place that I would / could wear them.  Maybe if I were headed to a music festival this summer I would wear them.  I have a few younger cousins (19 and 23) who I have gifted PopSugar to and I need to get their take on these. I know I would have happily worn them to the bar when I was 23 ;).

~Nature Valley Protein Granola ($3.68): I am going to roll these up with some peanut butter to make protein balls.  I have been wanting to make them for a while so this is perfect timing.

General Mills Nature Valley Protein Granola

~manduka eQua Yoga Hand Towel ($16): Love this!  I wouldn’t even consider it to be just a yoga towel.  It’s a workout towel.  And I plan to start heading to the gym soon (once it gets a little less crowded) and will be taking this along.

January 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box Review

Manduka eQua Hand Towel

~ToGoSpa Ice Water Eyes ($12.50):  These are to be used daily for 20 minutes and promise “improved elasticity, texture and overall appearance of the skin below the eye”.  I I can instantly see the difference with puffiness and these made my eyes feel better right away as well.  I will likely end up ordering more.

January 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box Review

ToGoSpa EYES

~First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream ($28): I’ve seen this brand here and there, but for whatever reason, I never tried it.  I shouldn’t have waited so long though because this stuff is fantastic.  It’s light and rubs in fast and it also makes your skin hydrated very quickly.  This might be a new holy grail!

All totaled I came up with a value of $136.18 for the January 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box.  With the exception of the tattoos, I will use, and am thrilled with, everything in here.  It’s a very practical box, but still feels like you are getting spoiled and that’s why I love PopSugar so much!

PopSugar Special Edition Must Have for Him

PopSugar Special Edition Must Have for Him

While I liked the box, I decided that I wasn’t going to order the PopSugar Special Edition Must Have Holiday for Him. And then once they offered that deal where they gave you a free December Must Have Box with your Limited Edition Box order (that offer is now expired) and I caved. Ahh, I just can’t pass up a PopSugar box can I? I tried. Anyway, I sent the December box to my Reddit Secret Santa as one of her gifts and knew that B would end up using most everything in this box.

If you aren’t familiar with them, PopSugar Must Have Box is an exciting monthly box full of fun, must-have picks across fashion, beauty, home decor, fitness, and more, which is delivered to your door on a monthly basis. Boxes include full-size products and premium items including tried-and-true classics, celebrity favorites, and brands consumers have yet to discover worth over $100! They also offer Special Edition boxes, like this one, a few times a year which are separate one-time purchase boxes and cost $100 each.

My PopSugar Must Have Holiday for Him Box shipped via FedEx Smart Post. Orders that are shipping right now are coming via FedEx Super Saver or something like that. They are coming FAST to ensure delivery by 12.241.4!

First Look

All of the items in the “For Him” box were individually wrapped in black tissue paper.  I opened everything up for pictures and then boxed it all back up for B to look through.

The Information Card

The 2014 PopSugar Must Have Holiday for Her box included the following goods designed for the true modern man to put your best foot forward this holiday season:

~Wheelman & Co. Jefferson Desk Tray (PopSugar exclusive) ($75): I have a bunch of super cute trays and and bowls and plates and things to put my baubles and trinkets in and now B has a super gorgeous one too.  It’s designed to hold your keys, wallet or whatever, but I think B will end up using it in his nightstand for watches, collar stays, etc.

Wheelmen & Co. Jefferson Desk Tray (PopSugar Exclusive)

~Dakota Grizzly Chunky Charcoal Beanie ($45):  I think everyone in this house likes / wears beanies.  It’s probably not wild enough for L, but WB would rock this and so would I!  Oh and B would too.  He was wearing it as he was unboxing the rest of the items.

Wurkin Stiffs Power Stays ($40): Ohh, well aren’t these fancy!  I will for sure have to remember to take these out of B’s shirts before I take them to the dry cleaners!

Wurkin Stiffs Power Stays

~Richer Poorer The Long Weekend Gift Pack ($36): Love these!  Thanks to subscription boxes B now wears wild socks to to work on a daily basis.  And I love it because it makes sorting / matching socks 100x easier for me.

PopSugar Special Edition Must Have for Him

Richer Poorer The Long Weekend Gift Pack

~Urbanears Bagis Cobalt Headphones ($30): What is it with PopSugar and the color cobalt lately?  LOL!  It’s a good thing I don’t hate this color.  I like that these came with three different size earbuds so they will be comfortable for most people.  And we are always losing headphones or they brake, so we’ll eventually use these.

PopSugar Special Edition Must Have for Him

~Ursa Major Stellar Shave Cream & Fantastic Face Wash ($22): B has tried this brand in the past and likes it.  It also included a sample of their Face Balm and Face wipes to try out.

Ursa Major Stellar Shave Cream & Fantastic Face Wash

~TCHO Chocolate “Mokoccino Seriousmilk + Blue Bottle Coffee Bar ($5.95): This is more of a “me” item than a B item so I am going to suggest that he use it as a stocking stuffer for me.  I’ve had it in the past I love the chocolate / cappuccino combination.

All totaled I came up with a value of $253.95 for the PopSugar Must Have Holiday for Him box!  I paid $100 for it, but did get the December PopSugar box free (a $39.95 value), so I totally feel like I got my money’s worth!  And

2014 PopSugar Special Edition Must Have Holiday for Her

Yay! My 2014 PopSugar Special Edition Must Have Holiday for Her box is here! I ordered it right when it launched back in November, but for whatever reason mine shipped later than everyone else’s. It doesn’t matter now though, because it’s here!

The Box

PopSugar Must Have typically ships via FedEx Smart Post. This box however, shipped via FedEx Ground and took less than a week to arrive. I believe that some of the Special Edition boxes shipped via FedEx Ground and some shipped via FedEx Smart Post. I think it all depended on when they were ordered and when they shipped.

The Information Card

The Information Card

The 2014 PopSugar Must Have Holiday for Her box included the following items you need to celebrate in style and indulge yourself to finish an amazing 2014:

~Loeffler Randall Envelope Clutch ($70): PopSugar loves clutches don’t they?  LOL!  I am thinking this will be a fantastic makeup bag though.  Throw it in your larger bag with make-up or use it for traveling.  It’s totally gorgeous and very well made.  I have a similar Loeffler Randall clutch (I think mine is snakeskin) and it looks just as gorgeous today as when I got it years ago!

Loeffler Randall Envelope Clutch

~Turkish-T Diamond Throw ($65): I was so curious to check out this throw!  It’s much softer than I was expecting it to be and also much thicker!  I also love that it’s neutral so it will go with anything.

Turkish-T Diamond Throw

~RMS Beauty Living Luminizer ($38) & Brightening Brush ($12): Did anyone else have issues getting the brush out of this little package?  My goodness it was a battle!  LOL.  My skin definitely needs some brightening though so it’s a good thing I was able to get it out of the package.

~Illume Gilded Amberleaf Metallic Knob Tin ($23.50): I LOVE this candle.  Not only is it gorgeous, but it smells amazing.  It’s described as cedar wood and golden amber infused with mandarin, vetiver, vanilla and tobacco.  It’s a deeper scent and it’s amazing.

~Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment ($22): I have only used this once so far, but I liked the way it made me skin feel.  It left it feeling softer, but I couldn’t see too much of a difference yet.

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment

~Habit Cosmetics 21 Nefertiti ($18): This nail polish brand is totally new to me!  I wouldn’t have picked out this color on my own, but I really like it.  I have a black polish with gold glitter on top right now, but I might try this one next.

Habit Cosmetics 21 Nefertiti

~Droga Chocolates Money on Honey ($7.95): I felt like I had to try these right away and they certainly did not disappoint.  They are “wildflower caramel” covered in dark chocolate  and sprinkled with sea salt.  The only thing that’s wrong with them is that there are only 4 in the package ;).
