TribeAlive Foldover Clutch – Atitlán Brocade – Value $98
This clutch is reversible, so you can pick the side/pattern you want on display. Here are both sides:
It’s made from 100% handwoven cotton, and the pattern is gorgeous! It’s lined inside, as well:

This clutch measures 11.5″ W x 11.5″ H, so it can fit all the essentials, phone, lip gloss, hand sanitizer, wallet, etc!
Battington Lashes Monroe 3D Silk Lashes – Value $26
These lashes are made with 100% silk and are reusable up to 25 times.
I appreciate that these have a more natural, fluffy look to them. (Some false lashes I’ve seen have some pretty bold patterns that look way too unnatural for me to be able to pull off.)
And this came with eyelash glue, too.
If you aren’t familiar with putting on fake eyelashes, first trim them to fit your lash line, then apply the glue, let it dry a little and get tacky (about 30 seconds), then bend them a bit to get the right shape, and apply!
Once they are on and in place, apply mascara to help blend your natural lashes with the fake lashes.
Here they are on:
(I’m also wearing the lipstick and necklace in this box!)
Kris Nations Jewelry Love Script Necklace – Value $48
Before I even get to the necklace I need to talk about this packaging! SO cute!
This necklace is 18K gold plated and adjustable from 16 to 18 inches.
Delicate gold jewelry is my jewelry of choice, so this is a perfect piece for me. I love how dainty the word “love” is!
Chuao Chocolatier Cinnamon Cereal Smooch – Value $6
Imagine cinnamon toast crunch surrounded by milk chocolate – that’s what this bar is! I avoid gluten, so I had to just watch my husband Eric get to enjoy this bar!
No surprise, he loved it!
JUARA Candlenut Body Creme – Value $35
(Good to know for swaps – inner foil seal)
I’ve sampled this before, and it is one of my all time favorite body creams! It is such a decadent formula, and considering how thick the cream is, I’m impressed with how quickly it absorbs. (This isn’t one of those body butters that leaves your skin feeling a little greasy).
This is a luxe body/skincare item, and it’s always a treat to get in a box!
Revlon Super Lustrous Love is on Lipstick – Value $8
(This is a Special Extra bonus item for the February box.)
I don’t normally wear bold lipsticks, but this was more to my liking since it is a cool-toned red. The formula was moisturizing, too. And the pigment is great. Here it is swatched:
I’m still not sure I can pull off this shade. But subscription boxes are good for getting me out of my comfort zone!
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $223! I think that’s amazing for a $39.95 box, and once again I think POPSUGAR delivered on a high-value and special February box! This box feels perfect for a date night, or girls night out, so it works perfectly for February/Valentine’s day, but all the items are great year round, too. I really like how POPSUGAR approached the February box this year (and since last year, I’m sure there was pressure to deliver another incredible box!)
