Safe Haven Paperback Book – Value $8

I think I was spoiled by the September box – I immediately started looking for the movie tickets! This time they included just the book – which is still great. I’m adding this to my summer beach read list.

Brokedown Spa Wrap in White – Value $84

Yay! Another Brokedown Clothing item! I LOVED the scarf from the September Box, and this wrap is fantastic. It’s super soft, and gives a great luxury spa vibe!

Also – this wrap launched exclusively in the Pop Sugar Must Have box! I hope they do more launches like this with brands in the future. I love getting to try out new products first through subscription boxes!

Mariebelle New York’s Tresor Box (Dark Chocolate Pearls) – Value $12

Sweethearts Conversation Hearts – Value $.50

I would have been surprised if there wasn’t candy in the February box. These chocolate pearls would be great as a ice cream topping!

Connoisseurs Quick Jewelry Cleanser – Value $8

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey – Value $9

I was just about to buy jewelry cleaner so this timing was perfect! I tried it out and the cleaner worked excellently on my ring.


Verdict: I thought this was the perfect Valentine’s Day Pop Sugar Must Have box! I will use absolutely everything in this box! What did you think of this month’s box?

  1. This was my first PopSugar box, and I loved it! The only thing I had no use for was the jewelry cleaner, so I gave it to my mom. The wrap is so soft! I love getting luxury items that I wouldn’t normally treat myself to. I’m definitely a happy subscriber. 🙂

  2. Can’t wait for my box. Check out my blog to see what I got in my Glossybox this month.

  3. Loved this box! I know people are not thrilled with the thong but please people try it out before you complain – they are the most comfortable underwear I have ever worn!

    • I understand the concept and its a good concept but the one size thing is a bit ridiculous, especially for a petite girl like me. The underwear basically swallows me, and is ill fitting.

  4. This was my first box with MustHave PopSugar and I LOVE it! Amazing box, especially for Valentine’s Day 🙂

  5. I got my box yesterday on Valentine’s Day and my feelings are a bit mixed. I read a lot and not to be a book snob but Nicholas Sparks’ books are not my thing. I can see how others might enjoy it though. Also I really don’t like those Sweetheart candies and I’m not sure I would wear the wrap (I’ll try though!). The dark chocolate pearls were delicious, I liked the Revlon lipstick and the jewelry cleaner. My husband was very happy to see I got a thong LOL. I know a lot of people complained about their January box but I really wish I had signed up earlier so I could have gotten that one!

  6. I was thinking about canceling my subscription after this month, but I don’t think I can give it up. Honestly for the money I feel like PopSugar is worth it. It’s got the widest range of items and I really do feel like it’s a nice surprise for myself each month. This box was one of my favourites that I’ve received so far. The big winner of the box for me was the Revlon lip balm stain. I got a burgundy color (Crush) and I just love the sheer, subtle color. Hoping to get some use out of the wrap this spring/summer! It looks really nice.

  7. Overall, it’s a nice box. However, I’m 5’4″ and that towel is WAY too short for me. So unless you’re a little person, your butt will be hanging out… no matter how skinny you are. And I didn’t like receiving a one size fits all thong…

  8. This was my 3rd box, and I really liked this one, too! I thought everything followed a really cute Valentine’s Day theme. I’m probably most excited about the book, actually. The biggest disappointment was the HankyPanky, unfortunately. I tried it on (I’m a size 6) and it is just too saggy and loose…way too much material between the legs. 🙁 So besides that disappointment, everything else was great.

  9. I totally agree, this was a perfect box for Valentine’s Day. Not things I would buy for myself but things I will probably enjoy. Except the conversation hearts. Ugh, I hate those things but I get that they were going for cute. 🙂 Pop Sugar has gotten some negative reviews elsewhere lately so I’m glad to see someone else is happy with their box like I am.

  10. I loved the box! I was also looking for the movie tickets. This is what I think we are all looking for in a box. Things that pamper us and are useful as well. I appreciate these types of items so much more than excercise equipment. After last month, I considered cancelling and decided to wait and see February’s box before making my decision. Now I don’t have to cancel!

  11. Ahhh….I kept telling myself I wasn’t going to peek this month but, I couldn’t help it! I also LOVED the Brokedown scarf that we received in Sept. – hopefully, I get plenty of use out of the spa wrap. Also, the thong looks cute! Overall, I’m excited about receiving this box.

  12. This actually looks like a good box. Too bad I gave up on them last month. I had a feeling February was going to be good too. Should have trusted my instincts. Oh wells.

  13. You always get yours before me, and every month I say I won’t look but then 5 seconds later I’ve looked! LOL
    Can’t wait to get mine, everything looks great! 😀

  14. Wow all that stuff looks awesome! I wish there was a way I could just buy that box. I’d love a subscription but it’s just a little too pricey. Let us know how the jewellery cleaner works!
