FabFitFun Summer 2019

fabfitfun summer box

 

Hi guys! I am back from another trip. My apologies for some delays in my posts. I’ve been so busy lately and had to take care of a lot of stuff. For today’s post, I would like to share with you the products I received for this Summer’s FabFitFun Box. As always, this season’s box is full of stuff I can use, even though there’s a couple of items that I already own, but they’re those items that I have always enjoyed using. I swear, I tried to make a decent flatlay for you all, but my cat Frodo (Dodo) just won’t let me. He pretty much photobombed most of my shots and I thought it might be fun for you all to see. I must let you know that this cat seems to work at the Department of Customs (lol) because he feels the need to inspect everything that gets inside the house, haha! Nothing goes through until he gets to sniff each and every item and gives his stamp of approval.

 

Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream review

 

Sol De Janeiro

 

Brazilian Bum Bum Cream (mini/2.5 oz: 20 USD, 8.1 oz: 45 USD) – Reviewed further here. This is one of my favorite body creams ever. The smell can be quite strong but it’s nice and quite yummy. I love the shimmer that is incorporated in this cream.

 

Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel (mini/3 oz: 10 USD, 13 oz: 25 USD) – This smells like the Bum Bum Cream and it’s a creamy shower gel that foams really well.

 

Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream (4 oz: 28 USD, 8 oz: 38 USD) – This has always been my fave when it comes to treating my hair against frizz. I also love its scent and the fact that it doesn’t weigh my hair down. I wouldn’t mind receiving this all the time in my Fabfitfun box.

 

Invisibobble Original Duo Pack (16 USD) – This is my fave hair tie especially when I’m working out. It provides a strong grip for just about any activity you might be doing, yet it doesn’t leave any folds and traces on the hair strands.

Jennifer Zeuner Star Double Necklace (50 USD value) – Such a dainty minimalist necklace that goes with everything. I like how subtle it looks yet it also looks elegant.

 

Grace & Stella Rose Facial Spray

 

Generation Clay Ultra Violet Brightening Purple Clay Mask (39 USD) – I like this violet-ish clay mask. It takes a little while to set and dry on the face but it does purify the pores and take out excess oil.

 

Grace & Stella Rose Facial Spray (25.95 USD) – This is a really nice facial spray to use everyday. It’s great as a facial hydrator or to soften harsh makeup, and even to set it. A definite must-have.

 

Whish Exfoliating Foot Mask (32 USD) – This foot mask works really well in moisturizing the feet because it has a softening effect. It does have a somewhat strong coconut and verbena mix scent.

 

Coola Organic SPF 30 Makeup Setting Sunscreen Spray (1.7 oz: 36 US) – I have mixed feelings about this makeup setting spray. It leaves a white powdery substance on the face and it sticks to my hair right after each and every spray. I’m not sure if this is such a good idea for being a setting spray at all.

 

Summer & Rose Navy Diamond Tote

 

Summer & Rose Navy Diamond Tote (50 USD) – This summer-ready comfy tote can carry just about anything. It’s perfect for any picnic and it’s 100% cotton. I love its strong yet comfy handles.

FabFitFun Spring 2019 Box

Heya, it’s that time again! I got my Spring 2019 FabFitFun box and we will be scrutinizing each and every product inside it. I was able to customize I think three of the items that were sent to me and I couldn’t be happier with my choices. Immediately upon receiving the box, I put the products to test and here are my thoughts.

 

Ouai Leave-In Conditioner

 

Dr. Brandt No More Baggage Eye De-Puffing Gel (0.5 oz: $42) – I didn’t quite know what to expect from this undereye product. I just thought this was some kind of a typical eye cream, but nope, it’s actually not. This is a lightweight gel that goes on the undereyes smoothly and it dries like a mask, which gives a tightening feel on the skin. It does depuff eye bags immediately and it has a salmon shade to color correct dark circles. I was a bit worried that this might dry my undereyes but actually, it didn’t, even after putting concealer on top of it. I think the best way to prevent dryness from using this is to use an eye cream underneath. So far, I really love this and I find this product to be unique. It’s very useful for a quick no-eye bag fix and can be worn alone, day or night.

 

Dr. Brandt Needles No More No More Baggage Eye De-Puffing Gel

 

Tula Purifying Face Cleanser (6.7 oz: $28) – This is a very thick gel face cleanser that smells a bit like a haircare (shampoo) but it’s not bad. This also has probiotic ingredients and it’s gentle on the skin. It’s very softening and it didn’t leave my skin dry. I love that this comes in a large tube which means I could use this for some time.

 

Ouai Leave-In Conditioner (4.7 oz: $26) – This is one of my favorite items from this Spring’s box. I didn’t quite expect this product actually, but I know I’m loving Ouai haircare recently and this is a nice addition to my collection. I find the scent of this to be somewhat familiar, but I just don’t know what it is. It’s like an old-world perfume that dissipates fast and it’s actually quite nice. This is a multitasking leave-in conditioner that really reduced my frizzies and flyaways right after misting it on my damp hair. It didn’t really add any volume, but it did help to keep my strands tame, smooth, and I love that it can also act as a heat protectant.

 

Manna Kadar Champagne Charcoal Body Scrub

 

Manna Kadar Champagne Charcoal Body Scrub (400 ml: $24) – This charcoal body scrub smells like fresh peaches and it has dead sea minerals as one of its ingredients. The packaging of this is quite large and like with most charcoal body scrubs, you can expect a thorough exfoliation from using this.

 

Show Me Your Mumu Brie Robe, Quay Australia My Girl Sunglasses in Black/Smoke

 

Quay Australia My Girl Sunglasses in Black/Smoke ($55) – This was one of the items that I was able to choose for my customization options. I was really thrilled because I’ve been wanting to get these sunnies for a long time and I really love its oversized cat-eye shape. For my face, this looks perfect and it’s really chic and edgy at the same time.

 

Show Me Your Mumu Brie Robe ($84) – A colorful flowery robe that gives such a Summer-ready vibe. It’s got a detachable belt and a high-low hem which may be a bit long on me, but it’s really functional and versatile to use, be it for lounging around, after the shower, or even at night. Pronounced as myumyuuo perhaps? (Muumuu – loose Hawaiian dress). I may or may not have heard about this brand before (such interesting name) but I do know Momo Challenge, and I know they’re not the same, LOL. Pardon my ignorance guys…

 

The2Bandits Athens Necklace

 

The2Bandits Athens Necklace ($30) – This is a very dainty necklace with a simple rectangular iridescent pendant. It’s perfect for a minimalist look or for layering with some of the other necklaces you own.

 

Giadzy Copper Plated Measuring Spoons

 

 

Giadzy Copper Plated Measuring Spoons ($15) – I also got these rose-colored measuring spoons as one of the options for customization. I find these to be quite chic and I’m excited to use and feature these on my next cooking blog post. These can be cleaned handwash only.

 

Overall. I love love love my FFF Spring 2019 box. I think it’s well-curated, and the items I got are all very useful. Most of them are the ones I wanted, while some are also trending right now. I’m definitely going to be using the products a lot, and of course, since they’re always in full-sizes, they’ll last for some time. As always, don’t forget to repurpose your FabFitFun Box. Mine became a kitty lounge πŸ™‚
