Good morning my beautiful kittens, how are we all doing today? Good? Terrible? Doesn’t matter because I feel fabulous and wonderful and happy and everything is about me. Now that I’ve insulted everyone and come off as a douche canoe, I’m here to absolutely GUSH over FabFitFun.
If you have no idea what this is, strap in my lovelies and BECOME AWARE.
What Is This Shizzle?
If you’ve been on the internet for the past, I don’t know, year or so, you’ll have noticed that the new rage is signing up for different flavours of boxes. There’s Bark Box for the pups, Dollar Shave Club for the men, Loot Crate to satisfy your inner nerd, Ipsy to make your beautiful face more beautifuler. And so on and so forth. There are SO many out there now but these are the ones that I know of for sure. Then I came across FabFitFun on Facebook and checked into it.
When you sign up, you receive a seasonal box 4 times a year. For those of you who live in a State or Country that doesn’t HAVE seasons, that’s Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer. In these boxes are full size, premium products that include fashion, on trend beauty secrets, and fitness gear. You get all this for $200 a year. Obviously being that I live in Canada and this is an American subscription, it’s more expensive.
Regret Or No?
When I saw my bank statement and the conversion came to $285, I immediately thought “the hell was I thinking?!” Sure, I could have figured this out before I signed up BUT WHAT’S MORE FUN THAN A MINI STROKE? Then I got the excited phone call yesterday from a coworker in the mail room stating that I had a package here and had to open it up so she could see what I got.
I opened it up and we all just
Because holy crap, this box of goodies kicks ass! Inside the box, beside the goodies, is a booklet explaining what you got, how much each product is worth and what the total cost of everything comes to.
The total cost for this ONE box is $230.00. Considering I paid $285.00 for FOUR of these bad mothers, REGRET WAS IMMEDIATELY DISMISSED. Sure, you could question “well do you even NEED these things?” and my answer is “OBVIOUSLY.” and also “screw you!”
So What The Frick Did You Get?!
OH I am so happy you asked, self. LET’S GET DOWN TO BIDNIZZ.
CHECK OUT THE INSIDE OF MY BOX.
I should never say that again.
FabFitFun Fall Products!
Colouring Book & Pencil Crayons
If you haven’t jumped on the colouring book trend, are you even living? I know I’m coming off as the most basic bitch in Canada, but I recently purchased a Doctor Who and a Magical…Jungle Something colouring book and love it. If you’re getting bored of Netflix (LOL) this is a solid alternative if you’re needing to chill and aren’t into reading.
I’m currently trying to colour in a giant ass whale spanning over two pages. This little book above is a lot more chill than that. Who knew whales were part of a magical jungle?
ModCloth Loch and Key Blanket Scarf
This is probably the best thing in the box. The creme de la freaking creme. Because SCARF. It’s so big and soft and warm and autumn-y and wonderful. I love it to pieces. The booklet actually comes with a guide on many ways to wear your blanket scarf, which is helpful AF if you don’t know how to scarf.
The Created Co. To-Go Coffee Mug
Shock and awe, I don’t have a to-go coffee mug. What might be even more shocking is that I don’t drink coffee. Blech. I am, however, SUPER into drinking tea. And now that it’s becoming Drink Tea All The Time Because I Live In The Frozen Tundra season, this bad boy will come in handy.
Although, I do not agree that joy comes in the morning. Anyone being joyous around me in the morning need a swift kick in their happy butts. But I assume they’re implying that joy = coffee in the morning. Anyways.
Mullein & Sparrow Mini French Lavender Body Oil
Luckily for me, you, and the people I see during the day, I showered this morning. After, showering, I lathered myself with this oil and damn, my skin feels great. It’s so smooth and not garbage. Success! At first it definitely didn’t smell like lavender but once it soaked in, it sure did. And I can still smell it.
The BrowGal Clear, Water-Resistant Eyebrow Gel
I had no idea what this was but upon further investigation, it’s to keep your eyebrows in check. It’s a shame I have never done anything WITH my eyebrows because they’re practically non-existent, so this product will likely go unused unless I decided to GET CRAZY and shade in my shit.
Spongelle Bulgarian Rose Body Wash Infused Buffer
Oooo such sponge, many buffer, wow. This made everything in the box smell heavenly. I can’t explain the smell other than “this smells nice” because I am ever the wordsmith. It’s a reusable sponge that exfoliates, moisturizes and helps you smell better than normal. I used this flowery beaut in the shower this morning and combined with the oil above, my skin is singing some catchy annoying song about dancing through meadows as if it wouldn’t send someone with horrible allergies into anaphylactic shock.
Definitely keep reviewing things, Carolyn.
Pure Cosmetics Nude Collection Eyeshadow Palette
This is my second favourite thing in the box. The photo is a touch bright so it’s not showing the colours off totally correct but YA’LL, THIS PALETTE IS AMAZE. Everything is so shimmery and soft and ugh, I just want to live in this palette. I threw some on this morning and even though I wear glasses most of the time, it looks great. This bad boy alone is $50!
Toesox Toeless Fitness Socks
I’ve owned a pair of these before and I have no idea where they went so YAY. These are perfect for doing yoga at home and needing more grip. I find they help me get deeper into poses because I’m not slipping or worried about slipping. If you can get your hands on a pair of these, I’d highly recommend it.
Skin Laundry Restoring Night Serum
Is my face…restored yet? (Yes I resemble Rudolph, YOUR JOKE IS SO FUNNY AND ORIGINAL, but I was in the sun this weekend and didn’t wear sun screen.) I threw this stuff on last night before I went to bed and it felt like putting on any other serum, only this doesn’t smell like fast cleaning chemicals being shoved into my pores that make my skin feel incredibly tight, dry, and my eyes feel like they’re burning out of my skull. Instead, this left my skin feeling SUPER smooth. Love this product!
Also, if you know your skin care products, you know Skin Laundry is a solid brand.
Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Cleansing Cloths
I’ve never used anything other than toilet paper to wipe my ass, but apparently these are all the rage. This seems like it would be pretty essential for traveling and you need to drop trou somewhere that doesn’t have toilet paper. I’m looking at you Thailand and Morocco. I think I’ll keep these for my next trip.
Secret Outlast XTend Clear Gel
Oh yeah, you’re coming on my next trip too.
Once you decide to become a member BECAUSE WHY WOULDN’T YOU, you also get the option to add other recommended product to your box at super discounted prices. In the box you get, you also receive discounts if you want to buy MOAR of the product you receive. On the website, there are magazines to look at, online shopping, giveaways, and lots more other goodies.
This is a great idea for that annual global epidemic coming up called Christmas. I told Husband Graeme about this and told him this is what I want for Christmas, but foolishly, he said to just go ahead and do it. Now I get more gifts at Christmas AND FOUR BOXES A YEAR WHICH IS BASICALLY FOUR MORE CHRISTMASES A YEAR.
SO, if you want to get in on this bad bitch but are like “man I wish I could get a discount” LOOK NO FURTHER. Click this sentence right here and you will get 20% off.
FabFitFun did not pay me for this review. All opinions are mine, my own, my precious.
