Tilo Heart Print Scarf – Retail Value $125
This is an exclusive design for POPSUGAR Must Have subscribers! The material is super soft, lightweight, and sheer – it looks fabulous draped!
The edges are a raw fringe:
And in the middle of the print there are fewer hearts:
I love the grey color of this scarf, I think it makes the heart print much more wearable in all seasons – not just for Valentine’s Day!
This scarf is 100% Modal, Dry Clean Only.
Beauty Counter Nourishing Cleansing Balm – Retail Value $50
Yay! A Beauty Counter item! This brand is focused on ingredient-conscious beauty products. I’ve sampled a few of their products thanks to subscription boxes and I’ve been impressed. Plus they are a goop beauty brand – which always makes me excited (probably more than it should!).
The packaging on this is lovely too:
This cleansing balm comes with a 100% cotton muslin cloth and a little spatula:
To use, you put an almond sized amount onto skin and massage in circular motions, then use hot water to dampen the cloth and wipe off the balm. Then rinse with cold water.
I just tried it and I like how my skin felt immediately after – very soft! Plus, it is always nice to add a luxe product to your beauty routine!
Fringe Studio Hello Beautiful Square Tray – Value $14
(I’m loving the grey and white packing and products this month!
The words on this tray are metallic gold and so is the entire backside:
Here it is with the ring from this box to better show scale:
I really love the gold accents on this tray – and I love that POPSUGAR got their signature cobalt blue on this piece!
I haven’t tried Victoria’s Secret beauty products in a while, but I was happy to see that this lotion is paraben-free! The scent is light and sweet, and the formula is lightweight and absorbs quickly!
Victoria’s Secret $20 Reward Card
Details on this card: It is valid for $20 off a purchase (no minimum) until March 31st 2016. It works in both stores and online. It has a pin number and works just like a gift card.
I LOVE that this is included – and it is even listed as a bonus item! Time to start online shopping!
Sport Socks – Value $5
These are another bonus item. They have a cushioned sole and arch support – a very useful bonus item in my opinion!
Foodstirs Heart Cookie Mix – Value $12
This is a mix for Valentine’s Day sugar cookies! Here is everything you get with the kit:
I love that they include a heart shaped cookie cutter too! (Foodstirs also has a Baker’s Club subscription, and they included a 50% off coupon code for you first month).
And here is the recipe card:
Foodstirs recipes are free of artificial ingredients, GMOs, and perservatives too!
JewelryStorm Endless Arrow Ring – Value $29
On the flip side of this Sparkle With Us card is a coupon code for 30% off your next JewelryStorm order.
I’m a size 6.5-7 in on my ring finger, and this was a little tight, so I’m thinking it is a size 6. Fortunately ,since it is open on the front, you can adjust the size which I did. Here it is on:
Looking at the photo now, I’m realizing I need to open the ring up a little bit more – I’m having a bit of a finger muffin-top situation in this picture!
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $273!!! Not only is the retail value great, but I’m so impressed with all the items. This box feels special and useful, and I love the inclusion of the Victoria’s Secret gift card! Also – I’m loving the grey and white color story with the items this month – something about the cohesion in the look of the products together always makes me even more excited about a box!
I would call this one of my favorite POPSUGAR boxes of all time! I bought a few POPSUGAR subscriptions as gifts for family members for the holidays, and I already can’t wait for them to get their boxes this month! This box is such a great gift!
