Reviewing FabFitFun: The Winter 2018 Box Reveal

14 Dec

I just received my Winter FabFitFun box, which means it’s box reveal time!

Before we get into the goodies, here is a quick overview of FabFitFun:

Here’s my Winter 2018 box:

I always love the designs of the boxes and use them for storage throughout my house. This one will be great to add to my collection!

Let’s look inside:

Mark & Graham Color Block Throw, retail $49

As a select member, I was able to pick between the gray/ivory or the natural/ivory versions of this throw and I went with natural/ivory. To be honest, this blanket is NOT worth the $49 retail value. The weave already has pulls in it and all I’ve done is opened the blanket. We do use ‘snuggle blankets’ around our house year-round, so I’ll stick this one in rotation until it falls apart. Which may be in about a week.

Moroccan Gold Series Treatment Mask, retail $49

This hair mask is made for intense care for dry and damaged hair. I think this will be great for the winter, when my hair gets so dry and full of static. I’ve used (and liked) Moroccan products before, so I’m looking forward to trying this out.

Thrive Causemetics Brilliant Eye Brightener in “Stella”, retail $24

This highlighting stick is said to “highlight and brighten” your eyes, so that’s cool. I don’t currently use any highlighting anything on my face… so this will be fun to try.

Ahava Hydration Cream Mask, retail $33

I try to stick with “Mask Monday’s”where I treat my skin once a week with a face mask. I’ve always enjoyed the masks sent by FabFitFun, so I’m happy to add this mask to my stash.

BLAQ Hydrogel Eye Mask with Hyaluronic Acid, retail $29

This is an activated charcoal eye mask that is to be used to de-puff and detox your eye area. This little kit contains 5 eye masks, so I’ll certainly be trying them out soon. Love that this was added to the box, because I’ve never tried this brand.

Anthropologie x Mer-Sea & Co Whip Body Cream in “Coconut Sugar”, retail $24

Love lotion. Love the smell. Do I need another lotion? Probably not… but this will be used eventually.

H Halston Jewelry Portfolio, retail $48

I had a few choices to pick from and decided to go with the jewelry portfolio. I currently have a bunch of necklaces just jumbled together on hooks in my bedroom and I think this might be just what I need for packing away those that I don’t wear very often.

Richer Poorer Reina Over the Knee Textured Sock, retail $24

I am super excited about these over-the-knee socks and I wish I had gotten more than one pair! I think these will be great for during the winter when I want to go with bare legs… but not freeze my butt off. I can stick these on with boots to get into work and then take them off and switch to flats for the workday. I think I’m going to love these and will soon be on the hunt for more!

Chic & Tonic I’ll Coast to That! 4-Piece Coaster Set, retail $18

Okay, are you going to say it or do I have to? These look like nipples. And now that I said that, you can’t NOT see the nipples, right?! These are slices of wood with maybe a super light coat of polyurethane.I would like them if they weren’t so nipply. So, I’m thinking I’ll give Jack some paint and let him go wild with making them his own little masterpieces. It will be a fun Christmas break project and honestly anything would be an improvement. Unless he paints on penises.

 Overall Thoughts

For the second quarter in a row, I’m feeling kind of ‘so so’ about my FabFitFun box. Both the throw and the coaster set were total misses for me. I like the creams and masks, but feel like their retail values are super inflated. Also, I’m kind of drown in creams/lotions/masks right now. I’m super excited about the socks though, so there’s that. If the next two boxes don’t impress me, I won’t be renewing this subscription.

Okay, be honest… do you see nipples when you look at the coasters?

    I didn’t see nips til you mentioned them. Are they this way on both sides? No cover up on the other side? Maybe just use them in the bedroom? Ha. You always need something to put a glass on.

    The box is so artistic! I like the box better than some of the things inside. The socks and lotions are nice, but not worth the price. Maybe the next box will be the winner.

      LOL, to keeping the nipple coasters in the bedroom! I actually just bought Jack a set of paints and I’m going to let him go wild on them over his winter break. =) I’m crossing my fingers that the spring box is better, but if not… I certainly will not be renewing my subscription after the summer box.

    I don’t blame you. It is good to try these things out, though.
