FabFitFun Spring 2020

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.

 

 

Pūrlisse Watermelon Energizing 2 Minute Polishing Peel

 

Pūrlisse 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.

 

Jabonería 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 Winter 2019 Box

Vera Mona Color Switch Solo

 

One of the things I look forward to during the Winter is to receive my FabFitFun Winter Box. This season, there are several items that are really interesting and are really useful for me and for you guys as well. Also, this season’s box is really pretty and as always very well-designed. So let’s take a look at what I got this time.

 

R+Co Television Perfect Hair Shampoo+Conditioner review

 

R+Co Television Perfect Hair Shampoo+Conditioner (64 USD) – This haircare is really good and it smells nice. The scent and quality overall reminded me of Alterna haircare. This is my first time trying this brand and it’s really good so far. I love that this shampoo lathers easily and you don’t need to use a lot. This duo softens my hair, and it adds shine and volume without weighing it down.

 

Ban.do Bluetooth Shower Speaker

 

Ban.do Bluetooth Shower Speaker (30 USD) – This is probably the most fun item in this season’s FFF box. This speaker looks so cute, it’s water-resistant, and it has a nice sound quality. Its suction holds well and it’s very easy to pair with your device. It makes showering really fun.

 

Paper Source 12 Month Rose Floral Planner (27.95 USD) – I love this planner because it’s really light, and it has monthly and weekend views, plus it has ample space for me to write. On top of that, it doesn’t look very cluttered, unlike some planners.

 

Makeup Eraser in Original Pink (20 USD) – I was skeptical about this at first, but this super soft towel really works to remove all sorts of makeup. It saves cotton pads, so it’s overall very economical to use, and also very easy to clean.

 

Drybar Prep Rally Prime & Prep Detangler

 

Vera Mona Color Switch Solo (16.99 USD) – I’ve always wanted to have a product like this so I could clean my brush instantly, and be able to switch from one makeup shade to another without rinsing or wiping my brush with a wet cloth or wipes. This really saves me time and so far, it hasn’t pulled any strand out of my brushes.

 

Drybar Prep Rally Prime & Prep Detangler (23 USD) – This bottle looks so pretty and it truly detangles the hair easily, making it more manageable to brush. This also protects the hair from heat styling for up to 450 ° F. The only beef I have with this is that the scent can be too strong.

 

Rodial Soft Focus Glow Drops

 

Rodial Soft Focus Glow Drops (55 USD) – This is another one of my faves from this season’s box. I love the gorgeous bottle of this and its very pretty pinkish glow. This smells really nice (fruity) and it gives a subtle glow on the face. This can be used as a primer or can be mixed with your favorite foundation. This also reminds me of those Farsáli products.

 

Inc. Redible NailsInc Thirsty Hand Mask Duo

 

Inc. Redible NailsInc Thirsty Hand Mask Duo (16 USD) – This hand mask feels really incredible on the hands since it’s very softening. It smells like pine and something else that awaken the senses. This has the same scent as the Sephora Mud Mask which I love. To use: you just have to put this on like gloves, and you can still do other things while using this, like doing chores, type on your phone, etc.

 

Overall, this Winter’s FFF box is definitely one of my faves so far. I love all the products I got.

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.
