POPSUGAR Must Have Box February 2015 Review + Coupon Acme

ACME Party Box Company Bamboo Heart Cutting Board & Cheese Knife – Value $32

This is an exclusive item made just for POPSUGAR. I love this for a February box – it works for Valentine’s Day, but I think it could work year round too. (The knife is shipped in protective packaging – I removed it for the picture).

POPSUGAR Must Have Box February 2015 Review + Coupon Bottles

U.S. Apothecary Rose Water Bubble Bath – Value $30

This is vegan, 98% natural, and made with organic rose water. I think the packaging is gorgeous too. I think it will be beautiful in my bathroom and I’ll use it sparingly (I can only handle so much rose scent at once!)

POPSUGAR Must Have Box February 2015 Review + Coupon Tarte

Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in True Love – Value $26

I was so excited to see Tarte in this box! And this is such a classic Tarte Cosmetics item – I love this blush. (If you are new to Tarte – all their products are free of parabens, phthalates, etc.)

POPSUGAR Must Have Box February 2015 Review + Coupon Chocolate

Chuao Chocolatier Ravishing Rocky Road Bar – Value $6

This bar is made with milk chocolate, marshmallows, and almonds. I can’t eat dairy, so I haven’t tried it, but I know Chuao makes amazing chocolate bars, and this one looks amazing.

POPSUGAR Must Have Box February 2015 Review + Coupon Polish

Sally Beauty FingerPaints Nail Color in Expressionist Red – Value $5.50 (Color may vary)

Figs & Rouge 100% Natural Balm in Wild Cherry – Value $8 (Flavors may vary)

This nail polish is listed as a special extra. Unlike most nail polish, it is supposed to only need one coat!

The Figs & Rouge lip balm has a perfect lip balm consistency for me, and it adds a good amount of shine. (And I like that the flavor is somewhat subtle).

POPSUGAR Must Have Box February 2015 Review + Coupon Bauble Bar

Bauble Bar Mini Arrow Pendant Necklace – Value $32 (Metal may vary)

This necklace is so delicate – I love it. (And I lucked out getting gold – my favorite metal for jewelry!)

Here is what it looks like on:

POPSUGAR Must Have Box February 2015 Review + Coupon Detail

Verdict: This box has a value of about $140! I think it is a great value and a really well-curated box. I love that it feels like a Valentine’s Day themed box, but none of the items are actually Valentine’s Day specific.

  1. I cannot wait to get this box! I haven’t received my shipping notification yet, but it’s still early. I will use every single item in this box – I’ve been wanting to try the Tarte Amazonian Clay blush, so this is perfect!

    • Yes! Lately I’ve been wanting to try Tarte’s blush too (it really does stay on for a long time 😀 )! Great timing! I wasn’t crazy about the rest of the items though (except for chocolate, because chocolate). I want to swap the bubble bath and the cutting board, but they’re heavy!

  2. Different strokes for different folks, I guess. This is the most disappointing PS box for me since I started subscribing a year and a half ago. I don’t like: pink, rose scent, gold jewelry, hearts, or makeup. It’s an ultra feminine box, so I respect the themed curation, but I’m not a girly girl. Most items will go up for swap, except the cheese plate because it would be too costly for me to ship.

    • I’ll swap my December scarf for the blush?

      • hi –

        I would be willing to swap scarf for blush! Please message me at autumncausley at outlook dot com

    • Can I please buy your box for forty plus I will pay whatever it costs you to shop to TX. I love pop sugar but cutback to save money and resubscribed Jan 28th to get a Feb box for my birthday next week Feb 13th to find out after resubscribing wait listed till March!!!!!

      • I have A feeling that I ordered two instead of one, so I would be interested in selling it

        • Hi!! Willing to pay with shipping via PayPal to anyone wanting to sell entire box. Let me know…ngkcjd at Comcast dot net. Thanks!!

        • That would be a birthday blessing for me Emily! Thank you! My email is

        • I would love to buy one from you!!! Best box ever and Iam so bummed iI missed it!!

        • I would love to purchase someone’s Feb box if they wanted to sell!

      • Hi there! I live in Texas and would be happy to sell mine to you! please reply to my email above

    • I’m ready to pay you for this box plus shipping!!!

    • I was thinking the exact same thing. I’ll be trading or giving away everything from this $40 box. Oh well 🙁

    • I’ll buy your box for $40 and pay for shipping if you want to get rid of it. That way you don’t need to even take it out of the box, but just slap a new label on it 🙂 they screwed up my membership this month and only put me on the wait list.

    • Would you want to swap for the silver necklace?

      • Are you still interested in swapping your silver necklace for a gold one? If you are, please email me!

  3. The Tarte and the balm make this box worth it! Excited to see a product that I would’ve actually considered buying on my own (the blush).

  4. omg!!! So excited Ive been wanting an arrow necklace for months!!! I love rose scent although i use a shower not a bathtub this could double as a body wash im sure. Also love chocolate and nailpolish and I use lip balm all the time especially in winter. I also dont have any blush right now so I will be able to use that right away. And we always cut up cheese and sausage for snack plates so now I can have a dedicated board for that! Awesome job popsugar!!

  5. I am happy for everyone who are excited with the box! Good curation and pretty items. I understand why it is sold out… because of the exclusive cutting board/knife. On the other hand, I am happy that I canceled after January as I don’t need any of the items in the box. January box was much more practical (sans the tatoos) for me.

    Just one warning about Bauble Bar items… I bought two gold necklaces from them, similar in price to shown above. One of them started to wear off the gold top coat… Other one seems still fine. Maybe not suitable for whole with nickel allergy.

  6. Their February boxes are always the best! The only thing missing is movie tickets to see Fifty Shades of Grey. LOL

    • I really hope they send movie tickets again – that was one of my favorite subscription box items ever!

    • Hahaha you’re right, that would have been perfect!

    • I thought for sure there would be movie tickets for 50 shades of Grey. In fact I told my husband to count on it 😉 I am super excited with the box though. The other items are just perfect and I can buy my own movie ticket. LOL.

      • I would have been shocked if they put 50 Shades tickets in any box. That’s way too polarizing a movie to do. I, and many others I know that sub to PSMH, would have actually been highly offended if the money we paid to sub to this went to that filth. The tickets would go straight into the trash. (Sorry to those that love it, different strokes for different folks). 🙂

        • For the record I have not actually read the books or will be the first girl in line for the movie. It was just my guess the box would contain movie tickets. Since they seemed to be rushing this box out before Valentine’s day. I know they have included tickets one time before so it was just my prediction. I agree with you that 50 shades would target a very select group. 🙂

        • I just swapped the U.S. Apothecary Rose Water Bubble Bath; shipping from Boston to Culver City, CA was $15.50. It would have been cheaper if it was not so far.

          The cutting board with another heavy item was mailed -in state- for $5.95

          I swapped everything but the chocolates — which were awful. The items I received from swapping make it all worth while.

          • Regarding shipping…….I sent the whole PopSugar box —- cutting board, rose bubble bath and all from San Diego to North Carolina for under $14
            I think the trick for heavy items is to not use priority mail. The package still gets there in under a week and is so much cheaper (and tracking is included)

  7. I am so sad I missed out on this one. This is right up my alley. If someone is interested in selling, my email is I am happy to help!

  8. Holy cow!! This is a fantastic box. Can’t wait to get it in my hot little hands.

  9. Does anyone know if you can get off the waitlist for Feb? I signed up when Feb was sold out but check the wait list box, and this box just isn’t for me. Hoping to not be on the wait list anymore…

  10. I absolutely LOVE this box, as usual it is spot on for me. Love the bubble bath, cutting board set, choc bar and lip balm especially, the tarte blush has always looked great although I’m pretty set for blush already.

  11. I have mixed emotions, I cancelled because I was going to wait for spoilers before purchasing – then I they announced they sold out February right after I cancelled. I like most of these items. I have a few Tarte blushes…so I probably have this one (it looks familiar). I love chocolate, and I would’ve loved to have tried that lip balm. I like the scent of rose petals and rose water, and I don’t always have the time to take bath, so I would have loved to try this bubble bath. The necklace is ultra cute. Not sure about the cutting board.

    However, with all that said…I’m still interested in buying this box. Anyone willing to sell their box? Please email me at

  12. My box has already shipped. The curation on this box is very nice. I am allergic to roses, though, so that bath product is not for me. Nor is the necklace. The only costume jewelry I wear is sort of bulky, statement pieces. I have all the pieces I’ve received from subscription boxes set aside to someday trade/sell.

    • I have lots to trade lol I would LOVE either item. I unfortunately missed out on this box

      • My email is cpl100 at

    • My box came today in the middle of a snow storm. My necklace is silver and the polish is a very pale (flat no shimmer) pink. Definitely does not ‘do the job’ with one coat.

  13. Ugh, I should definitely stop subscribing to PSMH. Objectively, it’s a very nice box, but the balm is the only thing I’d use, and I already have a ton of lip balm.

    • It seems like these would be popular items in the swap site!

    • HH,
      If you’re interested in selling through Paypal, I will buy the entire box from you. my email is

    • HH,
      If you want to sell the whole box through PayPal, shoot me an email at 🙂

  14. I signed up for January’s box because I really wanted the Keep Cup, and I’m so glad I decided to stay on to see what they’d include for February! I love the Chuao bar, tarte blush, cutting board–actually, I love everything!

  15. NO! BLUSH! LOL, my naturally rosy cheeks curse all the blush!
    Luckily everything else in this box is awesome. I want to throw a wine and cheese party now!

  16. Thanks for the review! I unsubscribed after trying last months’ box, and I’m glad I did. This box doesn’t really have anything that would excite me.

  17. I am so happy. I have loved every single box since my subscription started in December. This is amazing! The only thing I may want to sell is the bubble bath. Let me know if anyone is interested.

  18. Meh, I’m glad I passed on this one. I think the things are nice, but I’m not in love with any of the items. I LOVED December’s box, but both January and February have been Meh. Guess I’ll have to wait and see what’s in March.

  19. I loooove this box and I’m so sad I missed out. If anyone wants to trade or sell the whole box or any items please let me know! Especially the necklace 🙂

    • Hi! If you want necklace, bubble bath, and blush, I’m sure we can work something out! Shoot me an email at

  20. It’s boxes like this that make me sad I ended my Popsugar subscription!!! Sometimes they are so hit and miss, but I love everything in this box!!

    • Glad I didnt buy it

  21. Welcome back, PSMH… excellent looking box! Very well rounded and looks like a fun box to open and explore.

  22. Ohh great box!! Mine is on the way And I can’t wait to receive it. I LOVE Chuao chocolate, thanks to Birchbox and I’m a lip balm addict. I am hoping for a different nail polish color (I have a million reds) and also praying they take my profile into consideration and send me a silver necklace. Gold is awful on me. I’m excited for the bubble bath and cheese block!

    • Did you get the gold necklace? I got the slicer one and silver jewelry makes me look dead (pale). I would love to trade!

  23. This is the best one yet!

  24. Darn! I wish I hadn’t missed this one!
    If anyone has an extra they would like to sell, please let me know at!

    • hey olivia,

      I think i accidentally ordered an extra one, if you want it, let me know.

      • Thanks! I just sent you an email!

  25. This is a well curated box, and I’m so excited to get it. The last few months of popsugar have been so good & I’m glad to see they’ve been able to regroup. If the Target box is any indication, it looks like they’re also improving on their LE boxes. What a fun treat this month is!

  26. I am so confused as to if I am getting this box. I have yet to be charged for it but it shows on the website that I should be getting it. I have reached out to their customer service and they stated I would be getting a February box and that it should be debited from my account soon but still nothing. I really want this box but at the moment I am not holding my breath. Is anyone else in the same predicament as me? How do you know for sure you missed out on this?

    • I’m somewhat confused as well. The website shows I’m getting Feb although I’ve yet to be charged. But today I got a shipping email that my box is on the way.. So I guess they are shipping first this month and charging later??

    • I’m having the same issue. On the Popsugar website my account says February is pending, but I haven’t been charged. I reached out to PS and they indicated I will be getting the box and charged for it soon. They were very quick with their response and apologized for any confusion. Hopefully we will all get our February box soon. It looks amazing!

    • Yes me too. mine says pending and I haven’t been charged but I did get the last three months. Ugh

    • I had similar problems with the December box. After awhile I gave up and purchased the box. The December Box that I should have received as part of my monthly subscription — is still listed as pending. I also was never charged for the box. I received everything I paid for, but was so confused.

  27. This is a great box! Very excited to get it! The only thing I won’t use is the nail polish (I hate red), but that can be gifted, and the chocolate. I’m allergic to almonds, but that can easily be given away as a treat for Valentine’s Day too!

    • Possible good news about the nail polish – the card says colors may vary so you may get a different shade! 🙂

  28. Love everything in this box! Can’t wait to get. Only thing I’m not so excited about is the rhinestones on the necklace. Being 28…idk…kind of over the cheesy look of rhinestones. But I suppose I could flip the necklace over to the back!

  29. OMG I’m so impressed with this box! I’ve been subscribed since November and this is my favorite box to date. They did an amazing selection. I’ve been dying to try that Tarte blush forever and now it’s finally mine! The cheese board is adorable, I’m excited to try the lip butter and bubble bath. I’ve tried Chuao chocolate bars and they’re delicious! That necklace is perfection, I cannot wait to put that baby on. Very happy I got the 6 month subscription on Black Friday, I didn’t think these boxes would be as impressive as they have been. I’m supposed to get my box Monday but I’m praying it’ll be on my doorstep tomorrow!

  30. Oh my gosh, this months box is amazing!!! I can’t wait to get mine.

  31. So popsugar said that if you don’t cancel by the 23rd of the month you will be charged for the following month, correct? Well, I cancelled after the 23rd because I don’t really need another box, and I’m not into valentine themed things. I was still hoping to get this box but I haven’t been charged 🙁
    Oh well, this is all cute but I’d only get use out of the bubble bath. Still hoping I get the box.

    • That happend to me last month, I canceled after the 23rd ( it was the 24th I canceled ) – it showed up pending, and I was charged 2 weeks later when it shipped.

  32. I ended up canceling due to poor customer service + getting my shipment 1 month later then most people. I want to resub if those things get better. I just hate getting my box 1 month later then most people.

    I like the cutting board and the lip balm, I don’t use blush,bubble bath and dont wear gold tone necklaces. Hoping I can swap for the 2 items I like. I don’t feel like I missed much by canceling. I might sign up next month, for now I’m happy with Little Lace Box.

    • I cancelled for the same reason……and am also thinking about rejoining….

      Don’t like that I’m billed a week before the box ships.

      • Don’t complain about being charged early…..I was charged Dec 31 for a Try the World box I have yet to receive. Actually 2 boxes. They give me a different excuse each day. I’ve cancelled my subscription before I even got a box. It’s too bad because I really like the concept but they just can’t seem to deliver

  33. I am beyond excited for this month. I love all things make up and I was really for something from Tarte and the blush is perfect! Everything else is lovely too. Can’t wait.

  34. I’m not sad I didn’t get this one. I like the cutting board OK but hearts are too cutesy for my personal tastes, the necklace too dainty, and I don’t ever wear blush because of my skin. I am glad that other people are loving it though!!

  35. Wow…..can’t wait to get mine!!

  36. Can’t wait to get this box. My shipment status is still “pending”. 🙁

  37. The curation on this box is so on point! What a great box.

  38. Love, love, love!!! ❤️ Can’t wait to get mine!!!

  39. That’s such a well-curated box; Popsugar really hit it out of the park! I’m kicking myself for not getting signed up in time to get this box I had unsubbed then resubbed). Now that I see the cutting board that was specially made for Popsugar, I understand why Feb’s box was so limited.

  40. Looks like a good box. I amazingly don’t have much use for any of these things but they seem like they would trade very easily! My blush drawer is at max capacity, but I still would have probably found a way to keep the tarte blush… is the shade Natural Beauty?

    • The shade is True Love. I’ll add that to the review – I was hurrying to get this review up and totally forgot to list the shade! 🙂

      • Great box. Is everyone getting the same shade?

        • I believe so – they identified the items that would vary on the card, and the Tarte blush doesn’t include that messaging. Hope that helps!

      • Gotcha. Thanks!

  41. This box looks so fantastic!! Sadly I didn’t get it 🙁 it’s already sold out.

    • It says the March box is available, but PS is so hit and miss it’s hard to tell if I’ll love it or hate it.

  42. Love the cutting board and cheese knife as well as the necklace. Everything else will be swapped so be on the look out. 🙂 I only paid $24 for this whole box with a six month subscription so I am not disappointed at all. The value is great, no wonder the box was sold out

    • Haha! I love everything *except* the cutting board and necklace! We should be trading buddies 🙂

      • Lol. I know right. Hit me up if your on the swap site 😉

  43. Loving the looks of this box!! The curation has really been on point lately!!

  44. I love this box!! Especially the necklace, cutting board and bubble bath. The expensive bubble bath and cutting board aren’t necessarily items I would purchase for myself but will definitely use. I think it is really well curated too and includes a great variety of items. Can’t wait to get mine!

  45. This box looks AWESOME! I agree with you Liz – definitely a Valentine’s Day feel without being so specific it wonuldn’t work outside of February. Oh PSMH, I just can’t quit you.

  46. I love it! Am bummed I missed out on this one, so if anyone wants to sell their box, please let me know! Thanks

  47. Wow. This is one of the best pop boxes I’ve seen. I wish I had signed up for this one.

  48. Sooooo excited about this box! I was searching for spoilers yesterday, I got my shipping confirmation today, and I just was the goodies on your post. I can’t wait to have it in my hands! 🙂

  49. I am SO glad I didn’t cancel!! I’ve wanted to try Tarte blushes forever but always had held off. Welcome back Pop Sugar, Welcome Back!!

  50. Color me impressed! I get mine tomorrow!
