FabFitFun VIP is a quarterly lifestyle subscription box. That means four times a year, you can get an awesome box packed with all sorts of goodies for your home, life and wardrobe! Since it only ships four times a year, they are always something to look forward to.
It looks like there’s been a change in format this time around. There’s a nice booklet explaining the items chosen for the box and a note from the curator. This used to be curated by Guiliana Rancic but it looks like they found someone new to do it. This box had a spoiler of a Hisy portable battery pack sort of thing and it’s what got me the most excited about this seasons box. I need one!
The Cost: $49.95/quarterly
What You Get: The latest and greatest full size products in food, beauty and lifestyle categories with a total value of more than $200.
Passport to Beauty Gold Radiance Luxury Facial Mask with Collagen and Rose Oil- I’ve noticed that face mask are becoming more popular and mainstream. I think that’s great! This mask has excellent ingredients for moisturizing (glycerin, hyaluronic acid, collagen) and evening out your skintone (niacinamide). The aloe will also soothe troubled skin. However, the price is somewhat ridiculous considering you can get similar and just as effective ingredients for much, much cheaper.
Fabfitfun x Tappan Collective Umbrella- You would think that living in Seattle would mean I had an umbrella. I do, actually. I have one from Popsugar. However I have never used it. Seattleites aren’t scared of the rain! Bring it on! Haha. This is pretty fun, though. Except that the rain is never going away.
Manna Kadar Cosmetics Liplocked- Lucky Lip Stain- I didn’t unbox this because it’s sealed and I’m not going to be using it. This is a 3-in-1 primer, gloss and stain. It will also moisturize your lips.
Doctor D. Schwab Flawless Skin Fluid- I’ve never heard of this guy and I think I would rename this moisturizer if I was him. Or is it just me that thinks “skin fluid” sounds… gross. This is actually a really nice moisturizer with shea butter, almond oil, sodium hyaluronate and antioxidants. It even has rosehip oil (that’s the best kind of rose-related ingredients), peptides and aloe. It unfortunately also has ginseng in it which is a big no-go for my face. Darn it. I would have used this!
HISY Battery Pack- This is like having an extra battery for your phone. Charge it up and take it with you to re-charge your phone when it’s dying. I’m pretty sure I need this. Next time my phone is dying and I need to leave the house, I’m using this to charge it while I’m out and about. This also came with a 25% off coupon. In case I want to buy a bluetooth selfie button. Hah.
Purple Purse Charm- I believe that this is like the pink ribbons for breast cancer. Only this is a purple tassel to put on your purse to raise awareness for domestic violence issues. This is a real issue and I’ve worked with a wonderful non-profit organization in my city that provides a safe place to stay for women and their children getting out of a violent situation. If you live in Seattle and you’re in a desperate situation similar to this, please go to Union Gospel Mission or call them at 206.432.8424. There is hope and you don’t have to do it alone.
Merrithew Strength Tubing Ankle and Total Body Tone with Tubing: Lower Body and Core- Merrithew has shown up in Fabfitfun before in the form of a stability ball and core exercise DVD. I never used it. 😀 I actually do have a set of tubing but not one like this for ankles so I might have to do this for fun!
Tribe Alive Glass Crystal Bead Bracelet- This is a delicate accessory with hand-cut glass beads. Tribe Alive works with women all over the world to provide a way to have a sustainable income. I thought I wouldn’t like this but it’s quite pretty and versatile. I want a few more so I can wear them together. Although I wouldn’t pay full price for them.
Crest 3D White 2-Step System- This is a sponsored item so it’s not counted as part of the value of the box. It’s foil packets of toothpaste that will make your teeth whiter. I’ll try it. Nothing wrong with white teeth!
Picture It On Canvas $75 Gift Card- Turn your photos into whatever you want. Coasters, posters, iPhone cases, whatever! Shipping is free and included with the gift card. I actually ended up getting a gallery wrapped canvas printed wreath quote. For free. 😀
Jeweler’s Wife Gift Card- This is $15 to Jeweler’s Wife website that features jewelry from many fashionable designers. And it’s a real gift card, too, you don’t even have to make an account. I used mine already to get some earrings. Shipping is free. Also activate Ebates for 5% cashback!
VERDICT: I love Fabfitfun! You know what made this box extra awesome? Those gift cards being real gift cards. Not “spend $50 and get $10 off” or $10 off on a website where the lowest price item is $50. Know what I mean?? Those things plus the HISY battery charger made this box for me. I like the bracelet and everything else, too, but those things were exceptionally awesome for me. I am a little bummed about the ginseng in the face cream but I do have a lot of face cream to begin with. hah! I’m not feeling too hot so if I repeated the same word over and over or forgot to finish a sentence it’s because my brain isn’t working. Probably should have warned you about that in the beginning. I should go to bed. 😀
