FabFitFun Spring 2020 box review

 

Hi there. Before this season ends, I’d like to share with you what’s inside my FabFitFun Spring Box. I think the stuff I got this Spring is quite interesting and I feel like I could use all the products that FFF sent me even though I wasn’t quite sure whether I got all the customized stuff. Nevertheless, I feel like this season’s FFF box and most of the FFF boxes I got in general never cease to surprise me because of the fun stuff they contain.

 

This season’s box seems to contain a couple of very interesting skincare goodies, and I think the highlights of my box are the following:

 

Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow Highlight & Contour Palette review

 

Wei Two-In-One Purify and Glow Mask Collection (45 USD) – This set of brown sugar and golden root mask is very fun to use. I find the packaging of this to be very cute and this comes with a wooden brush applicator, so you can apply each individual mask on the face thoroughly. For me, the brown sugar mask is really exfoliating and it smells nice.

 

Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow Highlight & Contour Palette (45 USD) – This palette will have you covered for your strobing and contouring needs. I feel like you’ll have everything you’ll need to create an amazing facial contour with this big palette.

 

Revive Light Therapy Glo Wrinkle And Anti-Aging Light Device review

 

Revive Light Therapy Glo Wrinkle And Anti-Aging Light Device (68 USD) – This very interesting device emits red led light to stimulate collagen and elastin on the skin, with the goal of limiting the appearance of wrinkles on the face. While I don’t have any wrinkles yet to warrant the use of this, I can definitely see myself using this in the future.

 

 

Pลซrlisse Watermelon Energizing 2 Minute Polishing Peel

 

Pลซrlisse Watermelon Energizing 2 Minute Polishing Peel (35 USD) – This is another one of my faves in this season’s box, and this truly smells like fresh bursts of watermelon which is so refreshing on the skin and on the face. This product is basically a glycolic peel that really polishes off the dead skin cells from the face, which then leaves the skin a nice resurfaced smooth texture. A reminiscent of Huda Beauty’s Wishful Yo Glow Facial Enzyme Scrub and Peter Thomas Roth’s Firmx Peel. I love this product a lot.

 

Chic & Tonic Silicone Straws (15 USD) – I love the idea of this. After seeing the risk of what plastic straws can do to sea turtles and our wildlife in general, I believe that it’s much better to skip on using straws at all, or better yet, use some reusable ones like these silicone straws which comes with a brush cleaner and a carrying case. Isn’t this a neat idea?

 

This Works Deep Sleep Body Cocoon

 

Ag Hair Fast Food Leave-On Conditioner (24 USD) – This smells really really good and yummy. Once this is applied on the hair, every strand becomes relaxed, less-frizzy, and with a fabulous lingering scent that is overall very very dreamy, and nice. I’m really impressed by this product and this doesn’t add weight to the hair. I’m glad that this comes in a large tube, so I can use this for a very long time.

 

This Works Deep Sleep Body Cocoon (40 USD) – This multipurpose body cream has a very strong lavender scent that can be very relaxing and soothing. Though I’m not quite crazy about this mainly because of the strong scent, I still find this to be really moisturizing on the skin and this softens dry rough patches or dry areas of the body. This is great to use at night and you might like the lavender scent which can promote sleep.

 

Jabonerรญa Marianella Imperial Jade Body Oil (68 USD) – This body oil is probably my least favorite item in this season’s box. I find the scent of this to be quite weird. Although this is a pricey moisturizing oil, I am not a fan of the scent. To me, this smells like a strong lemongrass soup. Hmmm… I’m not quite sure if I’d want to smell like soup all day long (lol) so, I think, I’ll just skip on this.

 

That sums up the contents of my FFF box this season. I’m definitely excited for what’s coming inside my box this Summer. Did you enjoy your FabFitFun box this season too?

 

 

 

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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 360ยฐF, medium/wavy: 360ยฐFโ€“380ยฐF, thick/textured: 380ยฐFโ€“450ยฐF. 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 Soufflรฉ (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 Spring 2019 Box

fabfitfun spring 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 ๐Ÿ™‚
