This was the first month of my Pop Sugar Must Have Box subscription. A few bloggers that I follow have been blogging about it for a while, and all have always had very positive things to say about it. Christina’s post about her January Must Have box sealed the deal for me, and I instantly signed up for one.
I got this box the day before Valentine’s Day, and I loved almost everything that was in it.
The heart cutting board & cheese knife from the ACME Party Box Company was definitely my favorite thing that I received. I put the cutting board to use instantly. The retail value of this was $42. I LOVED the Figs & Rouge Pomegranate lip balm. Loved it. It went on super smooth, wasn’t sticky or messy, and it smelled wonderful.
The Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush was my second favorite item in the box. I’ve been using blush from Ulta for a while. And while it’s cheap and does the job okay, it takes a ton of it to give my cheeks any color. It took one swipe of this stuff with my blush brush to give me all the color I needed.
This necklace from Baublebar is totally not my style, but I’m still completely in love with it. The arrow pendant is tiny, and the necklace is very dainty & feminine. I couldn’t find this exact one on their website, but the included product card has a suggested retail value of $32.
My least favorite item in the box was this U.S. Apothecary rosewater bubble bath. The fragrance was incredibly overpowering, and it wasn’t that great to begin with. Real roses smell wonderful. The artificial rose smell is not. Also, it didn’t bubble up well at all. When I used it I poured at least a third of a cup into my running water. I got a few bubbles, and then they immediately deflated. Very disappointing. I definitely wouldn’t pay $30 for a bottle of it.
The Ravishing Rocky Road bar from Chuao Chocolatier was so good. The marshmallows were soft, there were tons of almonds, and seriously, it’s chocolate. What’s not to like? I’ve never tried this brand of chocolate before. The retail value is $6.00, and that’s more than I typically spend on a candy bar. But now I’m incredibly intrigued about their other flavors, and can’t wait to try more.
I’m not much of a nail polish person, and I’ll probably never wear this because the color isn’t me, but I did like the polish. It went on super smooth and dried quickly.
So, there you have it. My first Pop Sugar Mush Have box. I’m already looking forward to next month’s box! If you’re interested in signing up, I’d love it if you signed up using my link, which would give me a credit towards my next box. This box is one of the pricier subscription boxes I’ve seen, but I think it’s well worth it. It is $39.95, but the value of the stuff in the box was over $140, and other than the bubble bath and the nail polish, I loved everything I received.
