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 Fall 2018 Box Review

fabfitfun fall 2018 box contents reviewFall is coming and I’ve got a subscription box to review and unveil to you guys. As you remember before, I stopped subscribing to Sephora Play and was looking into another exciting subscription box that seemed really promising to me. Well, that box is FabFitFun, which is a seasonal subscription box that not only sends you some beauty and skincare products (Fab, I suppose), they’ll also send you something for “Fit” and for “Fun”, and all the products are in full-sizes and never as samples.

 

fab fit fun, fabfitfun

Basically, the subscription works by sending you four boxes in a year, one in each season. The products include something that’s meant for beauty, wellness, fitness, and fashion – all curated by the FabFitFun team. The box’s contents which are limited editions, are said to be valued at around $200+. There are two kinds of memberships, the Seasonal and the Annual. For the Seasonal one, you pay $49.99 per box per season and you can see some sneak peeks of what’s coming on your next box, as well as being able to customize a few items. For the Annual membership, which costs $179.99 upfront, you’ll be able to customize your future box further and get early shipping for the boxes. Also, you’ll get $20 instant savings, be able to customize the design of your own box, and have an early access to seasonal add-ons, plus more.

 

fabfitfun fall 2018 box review

 

I signed up for the Seasonal membership and I love it! The box is large and pretty and I was able to customize some of the important or desirable products that are going to be on my box. Also, the box had several products in it and they’re really useful for me, plus, I love the fact that they’re all full-sizes and not just samples which are awesome because then I’ll be able to really test the product properly.

 

Here are the items I got for this Fall’s box.

 

Skin & Co Roma, Blue in Capri

 

  1. Cuccio Somatology Yogahhh Detox Bath ($39.95) – These relaxing bath salts will make you feel fab and it’s totally fun. It has a relaxing scent of Eucalyptus that will soothe your skin and your senses, plus, it has a softening effect on the skin.

 

  1. Simply Whimsical Set of 2 Tea Towels ($14.99) – I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect with these towels, and why I got them or whether they belong to the fab, fit, or fun part. At first, they kinda feel scratchy and quite thin, but I did like their minimalistic design. What’s surprising is that they became so soft right after washing and now they earned a spot in my kitchen.

 

  1. Clif Bar Luna Rica (Salted Caramel Nut, 12 ct: $16.62) – Definitely meant as a fit product, this nutrition bar really tastes good. It has a nutty and sweet (but not extremely sweet) taste, and it’s kinda filling too.

 

  1. Grown Alchemist Polishing Facial Exfoliant (75 ml: $67) – This has a nice light rosy herbal scent with a gritty and clayish texture. I love how this mildly exfoliates the dead skin cells off the face and a little bit goes a long way.

 

  1. Skin & Co Roma, Blue in Capri ($22) – Can be either a body wash or for a bubble bath. The scent of this is very mild, like a watered-down scent of basil and sage with something earthy. This doesn’t really lather much, but it leaves a clean scent after.

 

Crown Pro 6pc Limited Edition Essentials Syntho Brush Set fabfitfun

  1. Crown Pro 6pc Limited Edition Essentials Syntho Brush Set (Black and Rose: $75) – I had the option of choosing the Vince Camuto Luck Tote over these brushes, but instead, I picked these since I wasn’t really smitten with the look and quality of the said tote. I think I made the right decision because these brushes are soft, versatile, and are sleek.

 

  1. Glamglow Bubblesheet Oxygenating Deep Cleanse Mask ($9 per mask) – I received two and was really excited to try them since I’ve never really had them before. Much to my surprise, these masks are a lot of fun and they bubble instantly. They’re also super moisturizing and deep pore-cleansing.

 

  1. Beautyblender (Nude: $20) – I was surprised to see this inside my box and I was really glad because I love beautyblenders and they’re so useful. I use them all the time and it’s nice to have an extra one from FabFitFun.

Cylo Cobra Bluetooth Earbuds fabfitfun

  1. Cylo Cobra Bluetooth Earbuds ($40) – These are really useful and they work by Bluetooth, which makes them convenient to use. I love the fact that they have a strap and their sound quality is pretty good. These would have been perfect though if it wasn’t for the in-line microphone remote/audio hanging heavily on one side. One of my ears is supporting it, and it feels kinda heavy and uncomfortable in the long run.

Alfred Ceramic and Stainless Steel Teapot fabfitfun

  1. Alfred Ceramic and Stainless Steel Teapot ($26) – If you’re a tea drinker, then you’re gonna love this pretty teapot. It has nice metal infuser inside and its overall size is pretty convenient for a quick afternoon tea party.

 

 

Some of the brands from this subscription box are quite unfamiliar to me, but it’s nice to know them. While I wasn’t quite certain which products actually belong to the fab, fit, and fun category, I’m pretty sure that I’m getting my money’s worth with this box, and with that being said, I highly recommend that you try this FabFitFun subscription box.
