PopSugar Must Have Review February 2014

I've been admiring the PopSugar Must Have Box from afar for a while. It's $39.95 a month and usually has a great mix of beauty and lifestyle products. I just wasn't sure if I wanted to spend the money on it, so I was excited when they came out with a promotion for the February box that made it half price! So I went ahead and took the plunge.

First, you have to love a big pink box full of goodies that arrives on your doorstep.

All the stuff was packaged and packed in the shipping box really well. You'd be surprised how many subscription boxes don't do as well.

And the inside!

PopSugar Must Have February 2014

First, there were several beauty items in the box.

The ModelCo lippie has a lip color on one end and a gloss on the other. It's a really cool idea, and I love this brand. The NCLA nail color is not a particularly special or unique color, so for a nail polish hoarder like me, it wasn't too exciting. But it is a nice color and if I decide not to use it, I can probably sell it or swap it. The face serum was surprising - it's basically an oil, and I was kind of like "what... I am not putting oil on my face." It actually sunk into my skin pretty well, but I don't think I would want to wear it under makeup. I think I will use it as a night serum. Last, the Dial body wash: there was a big kerfuffle online about this because Dial is not exactly a high-end brand. However, the overall value of the box was such that I didn't mind getting this practical item.

The high-ticket item in the basket was a Gorjana jewelry roll.

I was excited to get this because I have seen Gorjana online and never tried out any of the brand's products. This item retails for $45 on Gorjana's website, so that by itself would cover the cost of the PopSugar Must Have Box. There was also a $25 off Gorjana coupon included in the box.

Frankly, I have never owned a jewelry roll, and I was kind of like "huh?" when I found out this item was in the box through a spoiler. However, I really love the color and the texture of this. It's faux leather and a really bright coral color. 

Lots of Pockets!
It has three pockets on the inside. I saw another blogger talking about how she might use it as an evening clutch, and that's a great idea. I might actually put some jewelry in it and carry it in my daily bag as well, since I tend to be running late most of the time, jogging to get to the bus and forgetting jewelry. I could store other things in it too, and even use it as kind of a wallet. I don't know yet how I will use it, but I do really like it.

There was a small peony-scented K. Hall Designs travel candle which smells great in my bathroom.

Last, I fell in love with this little box of candies from Sugarwish.

Sugarwish is apparently a service where you can send a friend (or yourself?) a box of candy. This box was so cute. I couldn't stop taking photos of it! There is also a coupon code included for 20% off the Petite Sugarwish. Should I send candy to myself or someone else?

Overall, I was really excited about my first foray into the PopSugar Must Have Box. If I end up cancelling it in the future, it would only be because of budget. It was truly a discovery box and I ended up with several really nice things.

Disclosure: I purchased this box myself with a discount code available to any new subscriber. I'm not a PopSugar Must Have affiliate, but the links in this post are referral links. If you join through my link, I will get a referral bonus.
