February Popsugar Must Have Box

It's that time again, boys and girls... time for the next installment of the Popsugar Must Have box!!  I always love getting these boxes because the value is usually pretty great and the products are usually of great quality.

I got my February box on Thursday (Happy Valentine's Day to me!) and I immediately tore the box open to see the goods.  Here's what I got...



Clockwise starting from Top Left:
 
Brokedown Spa Wrap ($84)
Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks ($7.99)
Hanky Panky Original Thong Panty ($20)
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Romantic ($7.99)
Sweetheart Conversation Hearts ($0.49)
Mariebelle Cacao Nibs ($12.99)
Connoissuers Quick Jewelry Cleanser ($6)
 
Total Value:  $139.46
 
I normally LOVE the products in the Must Have boxes, but this month, I really have mixed feelings.  I understood each item was chosen for a Valentine's themed box, but I'm a bit disappointed with some of Popsugar's product choices.  My major beef is with the high dollar value items, the spa wrap and the Hanky Panky underwear.  The spa wrap is made of cheap material and and it's VERY small.  A more voluptuous gal like myself could never wear this.  It almost fits, but not well enough for me to wear it comfortably.  Plus, I would NEVER imagine that something this chintzy would cost $84.  It doesn't feel like a great quality item, and I had anticipated it costing around $35.  I could not believe my eyes when I saw that it was for sale on the Brokdown website for $84.  Also, the Hanky Panky underwear are another "one size fits all" item, which, as most very petite or plus sized girls know, is NOT the case.  Now, the underwear are a little bit more generous and have a lot of stretch, but it would have been better if they had given us a coupon code for a free pair so we could choose our own size and color.
 
I really liked the Safe Haven book and jewelry cleaner, and I know that they'll get used.  The Revlon Just Bitten Kissable balm stain is a great product, but I got a color I would have never chosen for myself.  After trying it, I'm surprised that I really don't mind it.  If I am going for a sheer red lip, this will be a great choice for me. 
 
The Sweetheart conversation hearts were kind of a throw-away for me.  They're fine, but I don't really love them enough to burn my Weight Watchers points on them.  The Mariebelle cacao nibs from my box were also a bit of a bust because they came spilled all over the inside of my box.  I have requested another package from Popsugar, so hopefully they come through for me.  I'd love to try them!
 
Popsugar also threw in a 30% off coupon code for the Brokedown Clothing website, as well as a 15% off coupon code and a free nail polish coupon code for the Hanky Panky website.  I just may have to take advantage of those! 
 
What did you think of your Popsugar box this month? 
Have you tried any of these items?  If so, what did you think of them?
