PopSugar Must Have February Review

I received my February PopSugar Must Have box and really enjoyed opening and investigating my box.  The February sweet love theme was prevalent throughout.  This was definitely a feminine box that had things to appeal to all age groups.  PopSugar is a monthly subscription box that has products for beauty, skin care, home, sometimes fitness, and always a tasty treat.

Going through the box I really had fun getting into the theme of sweet sweet love.
  • The first item I pulled out was packaged in a box and bubble wrap, it was the US Apothecary Rose Water Bubble Bath($30).  The bottle is very feminine and soft with a nice light rosewater scent.  For me it is more of a gifting item or a decorating in the guest bathroom type of item.  A nice product but I would rather not use it or else it loses a lot of its visual appeal as a decor item.  I could always use it and then refull the bottle  But that just won't happen.  Perfect housewarming or welcoming gift for a more errr  mature female.  
  • The second item I got was a super cute Bamboo Heart Cutting Board & Cheese Knife by ACME Party Box Co.($32)  The cutting board comes in a burlap sack for, again, gifting.  I really like this cute cheese board.  Not really a cutting board due to the size but great to bring along for picnics.  I think the price is a bit high for a bamboo board but it is nice.
  •   The food item this month was a Ravishing Rocky Road chocolate bar by Chuao($6).  The main thing you may notice is that there is no photo of my bar.  Well...it just did not make it that long.  Now I was not blown away by this chocolate bar.  The salted caramelized almonds were nice, and the marshmallows were moist.  But the flavor didn't blow me away.  I would have prefered the almonds to be halved so as not to have to have a lot of voids in the bar.  I doubt if I will purchase another bar.  But that did not keep me from eating it in two sittings.  Two sittings for a chocolate bar; that's self-control, right?  
  • There was a petite Mini Arrow Pendant Necklace by BaubleBar($32).  My color is the silver one.  It is a lovely tiny arrow with sparkle accents on a dainty chain.  I like that it is not something that I would normally wear but with a cute top I can wear this with everyday clothes or a bit dressy.  

  • The next item I got I am really happy with.  It is the Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush($26).  My color is True Love.  It is definitely a long wear blush.  Oh, and it can go on Strong!  I made a bit of a mistake and put it on with the same heavy hand that I do with my normal blush.  Oops.  Well the second time around I was able to get a lovely color on my cheeks that keeps the color and is able to blend.  I also make sure to set my foundation before putting on this blush. 
  • My lip item was the 100% Natural Balm by Bigs & Rouge in Lemon Berry($8).  I like that this balm is soft and not sticky.   I put some on and then took a nap.  I have a bit of a cold so my nose has been stuffy.  Well when I woke up my lips were not dry and tight like normally when I have a cold.  That seals it as a plus for me.  This balm does have a pink tint so you probably want to make sure you don't slather it all over.  It does have a fairly loose lid so I will not keep this one in my purse once it heats up.  
  • The last think in my pretty pink PopSugar box was a Sally Beauty FingerPaints Nail Color in Brushstroke Blush($5.50).  A soft non-sparkly pink.  I thought the color looked perfect with two coats were able to last as much as any of my other good polishes.
