It’s officially Fall, and Happy Fall everyone! even though it’s still really quite warm and sunny here. 🙂 Let’s start this season with the unboxing of my Fall FabFitFun Box. At first sight, I thought my Autumn box looked smaller than usual, however, the design of it looks very nice and I love the color combo of the box. Upon opening and inspecting the products inside, I felt like there weren’t many products in it. It may just be me because the products that I was able to pick and choose were kind of large in sizes.
The first item that I was able to customize is the Amika 1.25′ Strand Perfect Ceramic Styler (Limited Edition (80 USD). It is the highlight of my box this Fall, not only because it’s large, but also because it’s the priciest. I chose this because I wanted to have a backup of my favorite-but-almost-discontinued GHD Eclipse Styler (still available HERE, but mostly replaced by the GHD Platinum model). Upon inspection and testing, I noticed that this flat iron has adjustable heat settings. Its recommended temperatures by hair type are: fine/thin: below 360°F, medium/wavy: 360°F–380°F, thick/textured: 380°F–450°F. This styler doesn’t have the floating plates as my GHD flat iron, so it’s quite an adjustment to use this on my long hair. It does heat up well and it works to straighten my strands, also, the plates are wide enough to cover a lot of hair. I also love its eye-catching orange shade.
Kate Spade Lunch Tote (30 USD) – I don’t own a lot of lunch bags, so I chose this cute KS lunch tote and it has an insulated interior which I love because it keeps my food fresh. I love the cute polka dot design of this and this is pretty much easy to carry. It can definitely hold several items inside, and I even use this lunch tote to put my extra makeup and skincare in it, which makes people think I was carrying a lot of food. LOL.
Harper + Ari Exfoliating Sugar Cubes in Juice Cleanse (16-24USD) – At first, I thought these were some sugar-coated gummy bears, LOL. I was really so close to eating these stuff, but thank goodness I read the label. These are actually exfoliating bath/shower sugar cubes with very delightful guava scent. I really like the concept of this product because it’s unique and totally different. I love how you can use just one cube and it’ll last throughout your whole shower. It does tend to be quite a bit too scratchy at first, but then it exfoliates very well. I would buy these cubes again and again because they’re just so exciting to use and they’re not as messy to apply, unlike the traditional body scrubs.
Aveda Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair (31 USD) – This hair cream has quinoa protein, macadamia oil, etc. that protects the hair from heat styling. I love the earthy scent of this and it’s very lightweight on the hair. I just apply a small amount of this all over my strands while it’s still damp and it does protect my hair from my stylers. Also, this makes my hair look really vibrant, bouncy, and shiny.
Human + Kind Body Soufflé (19.96 USD) – I love the scent of this apricot oil+shea butter mix body cream. It smells really nice and it lasts the whole day. I could even smell the scent of this on my shirt. I find this to be moisturizing enough, just like most body lotions out there.
Skinvolve Body Boost Gel (45 USD) – I didn’t quite expect the effect of this body gel. It’s meant to be applied prior to any workout and upon initial test, this smells like Icy Hot or Salonpas, lol. When I applied this on, it really felt like those pain-relieving gels/ointments which made me feel so cold that I was shivering like I was having the flu, and, on top of that, the effect lingered for some time. So, I’m not really a fan of this and this is my least fave FFF item this season. Most likely, I will probably give this to my father as one of his arthritis gel, ha! I’m pretty sure he will love this thing.
Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Gold Eye Mask 6 Pack (25 USD) – This gold foil mask contains hyaluronic acid, aloe leaf, and lavender oil which smells really pleasant and super moisturizing on the eye area. I like to leave this on my undereye overnight for maximum hydration. However, this didn’t do well on my eyebags, unfortunately. I actually kind of prefer the previous eye mask that I got from FabFitFun, it’s called Blaq, seen HERE, because that one really brightened my undereye area, and it also reduced the appearance of my eye bags overnight.
Baublebar Farah Ear Crawlers (34) – These beautifully-designed ear crawlers look subtle yet eye-catching at the same time. The back metal hook seems a little too malleable though, which I think will probably break sooner or later with a couple more usage. I hope not, because this is really pretty, but anyhow, this is a very beautiful pair of earrings nonetheless.
Overall, I like this season’s box and though I felt like I didn’t get that many items this time, and that I’m getting the same type of product more often (ex. constant body creams), I’m still very happy with the products that I was able to customize and choose, like the Amika Styler and the Kate Spade Lunch box. Also, a few of the items were quite new and unique to me, like those Sugar Cubes which I really enjoyed. So, overall, I still enjoyed this box a lot.
