February POPSUGAR Must Have Box

Hello again!

Today's post, as you can probably see by the title, is all about the February POPSUGAR Must Have box! And, like I say every time, this is my most favorite box to get because you get such a wide variety of items, not just makeup.  I love getting fashion, home, food and technology items as well.  If you have not heard of POPSUGAR, it is a monthly subscription service for $40 a month and you get all of their must have of the month.  Every box is guaranteed to be worth at least $100, so you know you are getting your money's worth.  

Let's dive into this box, I cannot contain my excitement any longer!

Must Have Fashion | Gorjana Brooks Jewelry Roll | $45

There's nothing worse than when your jewelry gets tangled because it's floating in a pouch. 

The next time you're on the go, use this striking gorjana jewelry roll to store your most-used necklaces, bracelets, and rings.  The design rolls up easily, and the three pockets will keep your gems nice and organized. 

I love this! Whenever I travel, I scramble around the house looking for little bags to put my jewelry in.  Usually it all ends up in a small makeup bag and gets horrendously tangled by the time I reach my destination.  This will be so perfect to hold my earrings and necklaces when I go on weekend trips.  Or if I dream a little harder, week long trips? I adore the color, it is like a hot coral faux leather and the hardware is 18k gold plated.  I cannot wait to be able to use this.

Must Have Beauty | Nourish Organic Pure Hydrating Argan Face Serum | $23.99

Keep your face in tip-top shape! Made from a concentrated blend of Moroccan, apricot, and rosehip oils, Nourish Organic's all natural face serum hydrates and softens skin for a brighter, even complexion.

Use it in the morning under your daily moisturizer or at night before bed; either way, you'll instantly feel the soft and smooth difference. 

I have been using this since I received the box about a week ago and I am in love.  For someone who had dry skin, this feels so great and you really do feel a difference when using it.  A lot of times if I just use a moisturizer, within 5 or 10 minutes my face feels tight and dry again, this makes my skin feel moisturized for hours.  I love the apricot smell to it.  I will definitely be keeping this in my routine until it is all gone, and then buy a new bottle.

Must Have Home | K Hall Designs Peony Travel Candle | $11.00

All good things come in mini-packages, including this K Hall-designed travel candle.

For one, you can take your favorite floral scent with you in a convenient tin.  But don't let its small size fool you - the hand-poured candle made from natural vegetable wax has a burn time of 20 hours.  Perfect for that Valentines Day getaway!

I am not exactly sure who would take a candle with them on a trip, but that is just me.  I will probably just burn this at home, either in my "closet" (which is just a spare bedroom where I keep my clothes and makeup and whatnot) or our bathroom.  It is quite a lovely scent, very floral, and I could see it being very relaxing.

Must Have Beauty | ModelCo Lip Pops Duo Lip Gloss and Lipstick | (about) $31

Major points for anything that makes your beauty routine easier.  That's just what you should expect with this ModelCo lipstick and lip gloss product.

Designed to be worn separately or together, the long-lasting, high-shine duo is a welcome addition to your handbag.  All it takes is a quick swipe, and you'll be photo-ready in no time.

I am not to sure about the color that this came in, but I might give it a go and see how it looks on me.  I like the idea of the two-in-one product and that it is fairly compact and would be easy to throw in a purse.  I have a bit of a cold right now, so my smell is not at 100%, but if my nose tells me right, both sides of this product smell quite sweet which is always a plus in my book.

Must Have Food | Sugarwish Mini Red Cinnamon Hearts | $6.25

Enjoy these Sugarwish cinnamon hearts now, but get your real personalized treat later.  We love the online candy gift site, because the recipient gets to choose which candies they'd like to get in the cute blue boxes. 

We went ahead and ordered you the cinnamon hearts - because of Valentine's Day, of course - but give a friend (or yourself!) the sweet treat of their choosing with this unique discount code. 

I am not a huge fan of cinnamon hearts, but I adore this packaging and the idea itself.  This would be such a cute gift idea for any occasion!

Must Have Beauty | NCLA Rodeo Drive Royalty Nail Polish | $16.00

You'll be taking this polish to the salon, it's that good.

This pretty deep-burgundy shade from NCLA features a quick-dry, chip-resistant formula that pretty much guarantees an easy finish.  Take it from the name - even the rich and famous don't have anything on your nails. 

I wish we would have gotten this polish a couple months ago.  I have been more in the mood for pastels and bright polishes since we are getting closer to spring.  This color is beautiful and I will definitely be using this when the mood strikes.

Special Extra | Dial Vitamin Boost Body Wash | $5.49

Give your skin the attention it deserves with a little help from Dial's vitamin-boosting body wash.  The new advanced formula brings moisture straight to the skin's surface.

I was not exactly thrilled when I first saw this in the box.  My reaction was something like "Really? A body wash that I can walk up to CVS to get?" But, the idea has grown on me.  First off, it smells amazing, very fruity. Second, this means that when I run out of whatever body wash I am using now, I don't have to go buy one.  I have never used Dial before and I am slightly curious about this new formula for moisture.
Total Box Worth: $138.73

This is an okay box for me.  I really like the jewelry roll and I love the face serum.  I will definitely be trying out the rest of the products to see how we get along.
