Blaq Hydrogel Eye Mask With Hyaluronic Acid

FabFitFun Fall 2019 Box

FabFitFun Fall 2019 Box Review

 

It’s officially Fall, and Happy Fall everyone! even though it’s still really quite warm and sunny here. πŸ™‚ 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.

 

Amika 1.25' Strand Perfect Ceramic Styler

 

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 360Β°F, medium/wavy: 360Β°F–380Β°F, thick/textured: 380Β°F–450Β°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.

 

Harper + Ari Exfoliating Sugar Cubes in Juice Cleanse

 

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

 

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 souffle

 

Human + Kind Body SoufflΓ© (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.

 

Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Gold Eye Mask 6 Pack Review

 

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.

 

FabFitFun Fall 2019 Unboxing Review

 

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.

FabFitFun Winter 2018 Box

fab fit fun winter 2018

 

Hello guys, I’m back in the atmosphere (with drops of Jupiter in my hair… lol). How are you? How am I? I am well my friends. Back from my occasional gallivanting and ready to get back to blogging this 2019. Lots of things coming soon for the blog, so stay tuned.

 

fabfitfun winter 2018 unboxing

 

Anyway, been meaning to post this long overdue review of what’s inside my FabFitFun Winter 2018 Box. So without further ado, here they are guys.

 

Anthropologie x Mer-Sea & Co. Sea Whip Body Cream in Coconut Sugar, Ahava Hydration Cream Mask

 

Anthropologie x Mer-Sea & Co. Sea Whip Body Cream in “Coconut Sugar” ($24) – This body cream smells like toasted coconut heaven inside a unicorn-ish vibe packaging. This really hydrates the skin and leaves it smelling delicious like you bathe in a ton of coconuts in the tropics. However, there’s not a lot of product inside the tube, so if you’re the type that likes to slather on lotions and creams, this product won’t last for more than two or three weeks.

 

This Works Evening Detox Spray-On Exfoliant ($52) – This is a really nice detoxifying antibacterial and anti-inflammatory toner that has Salicylic Acid and Witch Hazel which penetrate into the pores and combat pimples and blemishes. You can spray this on a cotton ball or a cotton pad and then pat this lightly on the skin for a nice exfoliating and refreshing feel. I like this product a lot and it does a good job of preventing my face from looking too oily.

 

Ahava Hydration Cream Mask ($33) – This super hydrating cream/mask has Mineral Spring Water, Vitamin E, and Shea Butter. This smells really nice and is perfect for this cold dry season since this pretty much packs on hydration on the skin. I use this a lot lately even though I tend to have an oily skin type and I love that this has a nice softening effect that lasts for almost the whole day.

 

Fabfitfun Thrive Causemetics Brilliant Eye Brightener in "Stella"

 

Thrive Causemetics Brilliant Eye Brightener in "Stella" swatch

 

Thrive Causemetics Brilliant Eye Brightener in “Stella” ($24) – This is my fave inner-eye highlighter/brightener of the moment and this has never irritated my eyes because this is made of vegan ingredients. Also, this product is 100% cruelty-free and I love the philosophy behind this brand since they support women. This eye-highlighter goes on creamy and long-wearing (waterproof). On top of that, I’m happy that this came with a sharpener attached on the other end.

 

Blaq Hydrogel Eye Mask With Hyaluronic Acid

 

Blaq Hydrogel Eye Mask With Hyaluronic Acid ($29) – A refreshing activated charcoal eye mask with a clean scent and a gel consistency that doesn’t irritate the eyes. This is meant to be applied along the undereyes for 10-15 minutes but I usually leave mine longer and I really like its hydrating effect on my skin. I feel like this actually depuffs while keeping the thin skin around the eye area moist.

 

H Halston Jewelry Portfolio

 

H Halston Jewelry Portfolio ($48) – This is a convenient jewelry organizer that is perfect if you’re always on the go or even when you’re traveling. Since this is flat, this doesn’t occupy much space inside your luggage or you can toss this in your tote. You can store some rings, bracelets, necklaces and even loose studs inside its smaller zipper pocket and though a bit flimsy, this gets the job done at storing and organizing your valuables.

 

Mark & Graham Colorblock Throw in Gray/Ivory

 

Mark & Graham Colorblock Throw in Gray/Ivory ($49) – At first, this blanket/throw felt a little plasticky and super thin with a weird smell. However, after washing, this became so soft and so warm to the touch that this is now my favorite throw in my living room. This is really cozy and perfect for this Winter. I love the fringe detailing and the stripe/colorblock design which gives a nice lived-in feel.

Bearpaw Combo Set: Headband And Pop-Top Glove Duo

 

Bearpaw Pop-Top Glove Duo review

 

Bearpaw Combo Set: Headband And Pop-Top Glove Duo ($45) – Just what I need in this cold Winter. I love this set so much, especially the cute sherpa-lined headband which not only adds warmth, but it’s also very chic. The gloves are also very useful and practical for just about any activities. For me, this set is such a good deal.

 

pur be your selfie eyeshadow palette

 

pur be your selfie eyeshadow palette

 

Pur Be Your Selfie Eyeshadow Palette ($36) – This palette has four velvet matte shades and five shimmers. I love the color scheme of this a lot since all the shades are so wearable, however, you won’t get as much pigment out of this eyeshadow palette when applied with a brush. I find that this packs on more pigment/color whenever I use my finger to apply them on my lids. If your lids tend to get oily, better to really use an eyeshadow primer before using this palette. Similar product HERE.

 

What do I think of this Winter’s Box? I love it! Just like the Fall 2018 Box (seen HERE), I’m smitten with the stuff inside, even though there was an item that was supposed to be there but the FFF team replaced it with something else that seems to be a lot better and is of a much better value.
