FabFitFun VIP 2016 Spring Unboxing

 

The Spring Edition of FabFitFun is a hit!

fabfitfun
Chock full of great items this quarter!

FabFitFun is a US quarterly subscription box; every three months you receive a themed seasonal box full of full size beauty, fashion, fitness, wellness and home products mailed to you at home.  This subscription is pricey for Canadians at the moment, with currency conversion rates, but even so it is definitely a good value for the price. At $49.99 US per quarter + $8 US for shipping. At the moment this converts to about $74 Canadian, but the value of items in the box is $200+ and they have always been high quality unique items I have been thrilled to try out. Even the gift cards have been a great value!

This is FabFitFun’s 3rd anniversary

1. I Am That Girl

A 5″x5″ inspirational card that I will attach to my mirror to remind myself every single morning that I am ENOUGH. This is from an FFF partnership with non-profit I Am That Girl organization, providing global support for all girls aged 8 – 108, turning self-doubt into love.

2. MakersKit Kitchen Herb Garden DIY kit   Value $35

Skill level required for this kit is EASY – awesome! Everything needed to grow your own herbs -basil, thyme, and mint- is in the kit (seeds, compost, plastic plant pots and the wooden trough); all that is needed is the green thumb. I love that for every kit sold (including this one) MakersKit donates a school supply to public schools in the US. This feels good while being a practical and creative activity!  *code at end of review

3. ISH (I’m Smoking Hot) Contour Kit  Value $32

This is the debut product from Joey Maalouf’s new makeupline (a collab with FabFitFun). My palette came in the Light/Medium shade and has a golden highlighter with beautiful soft shimmer, a soft rosy blush in the perfect spring/summer shade for me (I can use it with a light touch, or build it up for more PoW at night), and a dark golden bronzer and light contour shade.  The palette itself is lightweight, cardboard, which I don’t mind as this makes it perfect for travelling, and has a magnetic closure. At first swatch the products seem to be very good – not too powdery, a light color payoff (which I prefer as it allows me more control to build if I want). This is a great addition to my makeup collection and I see it becoming a travel staple. Made in the US, it is Cruelty Free!

4. Jus D’Amour Trinity of Bath Bombs Value $28

This set of three bath bombs is made with organic ingredients and essential oils, and the packaging is so pretty. The three scents included are: 1. Deep Breath (lavender, ylang ylang & chamomile) recommended for stress management and relaxation. If I wasn’t allergic to chamomile this would be an amazing “before bed” bath experience. I will lovingly gift it 🙂  2. Wake Up (eucalyptus, peppermint & lime), the scents are soft and not overpowering and I look forward to this one most. 3. Love Potion (jasmine, rose & sandalwood) for a pleasing and uplifting romantic scent.

6. Jook & Nona “Love” tag necklace Value $65

This 18k gold-plated 17.5″ tag necklace has the word “Love” inscribed on the tag. It is delicate and dainty; I have nothing like it in my jewelry collection, and will be a perfect spring staple. Who couldn’t use more “love” in their lives? I look forward to wearing this and maybe attracting more love into my life. *code at end of review

7. Hello Legs Shaving Emulsion Lotion 90ml Value $19.95

First…. I would never spend $20 on a shaving product, so I  have high hopes for this item to blow me away. It promises to give the softest, shiniest, sexiest, smoothest legs. Ever.  Scent: like a mixture of fresh fruit and candy – yummy sweet but not icky sweet.  Consistency: it feels rich, goes on like a lotion but when you rub it in it really does lather up nicely. I haven’t tried this yet as I am one of those annoying lucky people who only has to shave every few weeks (the perk of having taken and aesthetician’s course in my youth with wayyy too much waxing and electrolysis done on my legs!). I will give my thoughts on this item next month after a few uses.   *code at end of review

fffarganoil8. Marakesh Argan & Hemp Oil Therapy  hairstyling elixir 60ml Value $22.99

This is a blend of Moroccan Argan Oil and Hemp Seed Oil to be applied to wet or dry hair prior to styling. I can’t quite place the scent,, but something sweet and bakery-like with a hint of balsam and spice. I haven’t yet tried it on my hair to review, but swatched a bit on my hand and it left my skin silky smooth, not greasy.

9. Merrithew Yoga Mat Strap Plus Value $14.99

This collab with FFF item can be used as a resistance cord (*see below for downloadable exercise guide) for strength training in yoga or pilates, or it can be used as a strap for your yoga mat (instead of a mat bag). It is a heavy duty elastic covered in a soft hot pink mesh fabric. *downloadable guide link at end of review

11. $30 Gift Card -Sterling Forever Value $30US + Free Shipping

Online jewelry store with a mix of easy-to-wear pieces inspired by fashion runway trends and celebrity favorites.

In total, this box had a value of $282.91US and I paid $57.99US for it. Every quarterly box introduces me to new products that are either practical and/or pretty and that I have come to love and repurchase. I don’t doubt this one will be the same. Though the $ conversion had me on the fence about cancelling, I just couldn’t bring myself to do so  – the value is still there and I feel so excited and pampered with each box that I just can’t cross that line. This is truly a gift to myself every three months and I encourage you to look into it and give it a try!
