Chances are if you have a Facebook account you have seen a post about the FabFitFun beauty boxes. For several weeks, Facebook told me which one of my friends liked FabFitFun, and Facebook also suggested I try it too. Not one to doubt Facebook’s opinion I decided to click on the magic button and check out what all the hype was about.
What is FabFitFun?
Giulianna Rancic put together a team of consultants that help pick out the best of the best and the trendiest of the trendiest in beauty, fitness, and nutrition products. Every season a box filled with over $200 worth of both sample and full sized products is available for purchase for $49.99, although right now there is a coupon available for $5.00 off the upcoming summer box. You can choose to pay for a year’s subscription for $179.99.
Spring Box Fab Finds Revealed:
Kai Perfume Oil, $48: This is the whole reason I succumbed to FabFitFun and ordered the box. Having tried a sample of this intoxicating scent last summer, it was all ready on my wishlist. It is not easy to make an exotic scent feel delicate but this coveted fragrance manages to tangle together both the sensual and innocent to create a scent not soon to be forgotten. A mixture of gardenia and white exotics will have you escaping to the tropics every time you dab it on your wrists. For the price of the full size roll on perfume I received the entire box of Fab, Fit, Fun goodies including the full size Kai oil!!
Cover FX SPF Protection Primer, $38
This water-resistant SPF formula primer basically does everything you could ask a skin product to do… and it does so without any of the yucky ingredients such as parabens, sulfates, phthalates, gluten, and mineral oil. Smooth this light cream on in the morning and watch fine lines blur, pores tighten, and redness fade. As if that was not enough this skin care Superman extends make-up wear, is packed with antioxidants including tomato extract and vitamins F,C, and E to nourish skin as it protects it from harmful UV rays. Oh, and did I mention it is also extremely moisturizing?
Dermasuri Deep Exfoliating Mitt, $19.99
Most of us know by now exfoliating is a wonderful thing for our skin; it gets rid of dead skin cells, reveals a youthful glow, and allows for better absorption of our skin care products making them more effective. Dermasuri’s exfoliating mitt is for use on the body and will not only give your skin a renewed appearance it will also help prepare you for self tanning season by creating a smooth canvas. Just do not over do it! The directions say to use the mitt once every few weeks and tempting as it may be the mitt is not for the face.
Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo Invisible Spray, $25
One thing most moms have in common is washing their hair when they actually have time to wash it which does not always coincide with when it really needs it! On those days I love using dry shampoos. While some I have tried leave a white residue, Oscar Blandi’s version goes on clear, dries to give hair a nice, clean shine, and smells great. Perfect for after workouts, or when it has been a little longer than you would like to admit since you last washed your hair.
Cult Gaia Turband, $48
This fabulous, trendy part headband, part turban accessory is super fun to play around with and create all kinds of funky, styles. However, finding an appropriate way to wear this crazy cool hair wrap out in public was a bit more challenging for this 30 something mom. After having several laughs with the family, I found an acceptable way to make it work for all of us moms out there who want people to look at us twice for good reasons and not for bad! I can not wait to wear this to the pool and beach this summer!
In addition to these great full size beauty products I also received the following:
Merrithew Mini Stability Ball and DVD, $28.94
A great core workout that focuses on breathing!
Level Naturals Shower Bombs, $7.99
An organic blend of menthol, tea tree, and eucalyptus oils that are released by the steam in the shower. An awesome treat for the mind and body after a long day and perfect to soothe a cold or allergies. Bonus: no residue at all was left on the shower floor!
The Better Chip Spinach and Kale with Sea Salt, $1.99
In a word, “delicious”!
Final Verdict on FabFitFun:
This beauty box is by far the best one I have received; filled with full sized products I actually use and will repurchase. The box comes out four times a year which I think is better than receiving sample boxes every month. I am finding those little samples are beginning to clutter my make up drawer and the next box arrives before I finish up the last one. FabFitFun definitely gives more bang for your buck. It is also important to note I had received the wrong tracking number for my shipment and within two hours of leaving a message with customer service I received a phone call and two e-mails correcting the mistake. If you love trying new products and have been wanting to try one of the beauty boxes I highly recommend starting with FabFitFun!
