Reviewing FabFitFun: the Fall Box Reveal, a $10 off code & a Favorites Update

29 Sep

I just received my fifth box from FabFitFun and I can easily say that it is my favorite box from them so far! Not the other boxes haven’t been great, but this one is like they tackled fall, wrapped it up, and sent to my house.

About FabFitFun
The FabFitFun boxes come on a quarterly basis and cost $49.99 each. It is a bit more expensive than other subscription boxes I’ve tried, but there is usually at least one item that makes it worth it for me. If you want to sign up, here is a special $10 off link for you to use on your first box.

Before I get into my Fall Box Reveal, here are some quickie links to previous boxes and a note about what I’m still loving from each:

Previous Boxes: Quick Favorites Update
Summer 2016 Reveal – Absolute favorite thing from the box I use all the time: OSEA Atmosphere Protection Cream. This one was a sleeper because I didn’t even know I needed it until I started using it. Now, I smooth it on almost every night before I go to sleep.

Spring 2016 RevealAbsolute favorite thing from the box I use all the time: Tag Necklace from Jook & Nona. I wear my “Love” necklace ALL THE TIME and it is one of my favorites. Close runner-ups are the Bath Bomb Trinity (Jack’s favorite to use, my favorite to smell while I’m snuggling him after a bath) and the Shaving Emulation Lotion by HelloLegs (this has totally replaced my shaving gel). I’ve purchased both of these again after finishing them both.

Fall 2015 RevealAbsolute favorite thing from the box I use all the time: FabFitFun x Tappan Collective Umbrella. This umbrella lives in my car for unexpected rainstorms. It’s really cute and also folds up really small so I can stick it in my purse. Fun fact, my husband took my truck to work today so he could get it checked out and left me both my sunglasses and this umbrella on the front table, just in case I need them. So thoughtful!

Summer 2015 RevealAbsolute favorite thing from the box I use all the time: Gorge “I’ll make you look amazing” Daily Spray. I love this leave-in conditioner/protector spray that I’ve actually ordered two more bottles since I received my first one! Great stuff and I think it keeps my color looking fresh longer.

A Look Inside my Fall 2016 FabFitFun Box:

Before we even look inside the box, the BOX is its own activity. The inside and outside are both designed to color and Jack was thrilled when I gave it to him. He already spent over an hour on it last night!

FabFitFun Coloring Book & Colored Pencils, $14
In addition to the box, they also included a coloring book and coloring pencils too. The book I received is the “Nature Coloring Book” and it’s the perfect size for me to take on our upcoming vacation for some in-flight entertainment.

Modcloth Loch & Key Scarf, $34.99
This beautiful blanket scarf is super-sized at 55” x 55” super-soft too. I love the black plaid color scheme and can definitely see getting a lot of wear out of this. You can buy the scarf directly from Modcloth here. However, it’s only $15 more to buy the entire FabFitFun box. I was originally thinking of gifting this… but then I tried it on to do a sneak peek yesterday and the combo of the softness and great smell (from the rest of the box contents) convinced me to keep it for myself!

The Created Co. To-Go Coffee Mug, $19
There were two different versions of this mug sent out and I received the one that says “Joy comes in the morning” Not only is it super cute, but Created Co. donates 10% of their profits to charity:water’s mission to bring clean and save drinking water to those in need.

Skin Laundry Restoring Night Serum, $50
This restoring night serum contains a combination of antioxidants, vitamins, natural extracts and amino acids to help visibly improve skin texture, firmness and elasticity while you are sleeping. The 1 ounce bottle will last me for a really long time, so I’m really happy to get this one to try out.

Mullein & Sparrow Mini French Lavender Body Oil, $18
I’m really picky about scents and I absolutely love the soft lavender small of this body oil. You an either use it as a daily moisturizer, a massage oil or pour a little in your bath for a calming soak.

The Browgal Clear, Water-Resistant Eyebrow Gel, $20
This eyebrow gel is to be used on top of your pencil or powder to help it seal and give it extra staying power. I don’t really have unruly brows, but was interested to see whether it would give me more volume like it claimed. Unfortunately, once I swiped it over my brows as instructed it felt like I had brushed some rubber cement on them. I didn’t like it at all and pretty much washed it off as soon as it dried!

Spongelle Bulgarian Rose Body Wash Infused Buffer, $16
Jack is such a little bath diva and totally already stole this one from me. He loves the flower shape of the sponge and both of us love the scent left on his skin after he gets scrubbed down!

Pure Cosmetics Nude Collection Eyeshadow Palette, $50
This eye shadow palette is really fantastic. It has 12 wearable shades that are right in my wheelhouse (what can I say, I’m a bronze-kinda girl). I can’t wait to try them out!

Toesox Toeless Fitness Socks, $18
I wasn’t really sure what I was going to use these socks for, since if I do yoga or Pilates I’m in my living room and don’t tend to slip around. Then I saw that another blogger suggested them for winter pedicures – to keep the rest of your foot warm while you paint your toenails – and I totally love that idea.

Bonus Sponsored Items
Bonus items aren’t counted towards the value of the box, but are just thrown in by sponsors to introduce you to their products. This month we received Cottonelle Flushable Cleansing Cloths and Secret Clear Gel antiperspirant. They both came at the perfect time to be added to our suitcases for our trip!

The total value of everything in the Fall FabFitFun box is: $239.99. As I said before, this box is one of the best I’ve received and I’m really excited about a bunch of the items. Right now, I’m thinking my favorite items are: the scarf, the coffee mug, the lavender body oil, the spongelle body wash buffer and the skin serum. This box was totally a winner!!

    I love the scarf and coloring book. Too cute!

    My favorite fall trend is definitely booties. I love how I can dress them up and down. My second favorite would be the fact that I can go overboard on dark lips without receiving weird looks.
