So, I just received my second FabFitFun box, in perfect time for my first unboxing! If you’re like me, you get bombarded by celebrities doing their own unboxing. But, unlike us folk, they’re not shelling out precious $$$ to get it. So I’m here to find out… is this a deal, or no deal?
*I will include the Canadian exchange rate
I will start off by apologizing for the horrible quality of this photo. My iPhone was not working with me today. Personally, I’m a huge fan of the pastel colours. Definitely gives me the spring vibe I was hoping for.
I love that you are given a pamphlet that gives a good explanation of the products. There are other subscriptions that don’t give you any explanation on how to use their product. I appreciate the tips and explanations you get from FabFitFun. There is also an editors letter, and personal interviews, articles from the product creators! Now lets get to the products…
Briogeo Roscarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray
cost: $20.00 USD/$26.00 CDN
Excerpt from FabFitFun: Does your hair need some extra love? This ultra-lightweight spray is fortified with a unique blend of rosehip, argan, and coconut oils to improve hair’s softness, strength, and moisture levels, while acting as a barrier against heat.
First off, I may be slightly bias, because I LOVE Brigeo. I have received some of their hair repair products and they have been successful for me. I also struggle with the damage from coloured hair, so receiving a product that works for me is always a plus. First impression: It smells SO good. I have used the product once, and right away I noticed my hair feeling shinier, healthier. Overall, I think this product is a deal!
Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish Set in Blue Orchid/Like a Virgin
cost: $19.00 USD/$25.00 CDN
Excerpt from FabFitFun: These beautiful hues are springtime in a bottle. Whether you receive “Blue Orchid or “Shape of My Heart”, you’re sure to nail it this season.
I’m not the biggest fan of receiving nail polishes in my subscription boxes. But, I do have to say I really enjoy this product. The nail polish provides practically full coverage from one use and it dries quickly. There is nothing worst (okay maybe a few things…) than having to do several layers just to get the coverage you need. And personally, I’m just too impatient for that. I think the price might be a bit high, but the quality is great.
Karuna Hydrating+Face Mask
Excerpt from FabFitFun: Dry, dehydrated skin is no match for this deep-conditioning sheet mask. Made out of 100% natural wood-pulp fiber, this single-usk mask allows pores to fully absorb essential nutrients and nourishing ingredients for ultimate hydration.
This has been my first time using Karuna products. You are provided with four face masks. So that makes each mask about $7.00 USD or $9.00 CDN. As explained in the excerpt, these masks work best for individuals with dry skin. So if you struggle with oily skin, this may not be the product for you. I have normal or combination skin, but with the Canadian winter, my skin has been unusually dry lately. My first impression was that there is A LOT of product on the mask. I feel like you could make two masks out of one with the product. My skin felt great throughout the process. Personally, I don’t like products that make my skin tingle. Overall, I’m liking this product, but with the Canadian Exchange rate, I wouldn’t buy again.
Realher Lip Kit in Deep Red
cost:$48.00 USD/$64.00 CDN
Excerpt from FabFitFun: Talk about lip service! Made from natural ingredients, this liquid lipstick, plumping lip gloss, and lip liner trio are so pretty you’ll be kissing the mirror before you leave.
I have to admit, I did not kiss the mirror when I applied this product. Maybe I did it wrong? But seriously, from the second I pulled the product out of the box I was sold. I’m a big fan of women empowerment, so seeing these lovely messages on the lip items was a big win for me. There are two other colours that subscribers will receive: Deep Nude and Neutral Pink. In a perfect world I would have received Deep Nudge, because I’m the biggest fan of nude lip colours, but I’ll forgive them. I have seen reviews about the liquid lipgloss being sticky. I applied the liner first, and then used the plumping gloss afterwards and it applied smooth. It doesn’t last as long as some of my other lippies (tarte i love you) but I’m still a huge fan.
Luv AJ DIamond Kite Crawler Earring Set
cost:$85.00 USD/$113.00 CDN
Excerpt from FabFitFun: You’ll be smiling from ear to ear in this stunning set of climbers and studs. It’s made of 14K rose gold and adorned with sparkling stones, so these baubles will be great for any occasion.
For those who do not know… my initials are AJ. SO when I saw this I actually thought it was a personalized gift. Alas, it was not. But it was rose gold earrings, so its a win-win. I really like the crawlers. They look great on, and they can be used by others who do not have their ears pierced.
Milly Zip Pouch
cost:$45.00 USD/$60.00 CDN
Excerpt from FabFitFun: Spring break means that traveling with wet bikinis is inevitable. Keep your suits safe and away from your other valuables with this water-resistant bag.
I’m going to be honest, I really don’t think this bag is worth 45-60 dollars. Thankfully, when you purchase this box, you won’t be paying that price. This bag is multi-use, which is great. Can anyone have too many make-up bags? (Yes, I probably do. The saying is quite fitting as I’m feeling like a bit of a haute mess right now. You’re definitely getting a deal with this in the box.
Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator
cost: $79 USD/$105 CDN
Excerpt from FabFitFun: Reveal radiant and renewed skin! This formula contains aluminum oxide crystals, lactic acid, and smoothing botanicals to polish away deal cells and leave you with bright, smooth, healthy-looking skin.
If you’re figuring out if you want to purchase the box, this should be your answer. Dr. Brandt is the holy grail of skin care, and I’ve been holding out on purchasing another product by them because of the high cost. I am very excited to give this product a try!
Gypsy 05 Roundie
cost: $50 USD/$66 CDN
Excerpt from FabFitFun: Whether you’re headed to a picnic, the beach, or a springtime concert, get around town with the perfect roundie. It will be your picnic go-to this season.
I just love this product! As I previously mentioned, I am a big fan of pastel colours. Ideally, I would love to put this at the end of my bed or back of my couch, but I still have to convince my boyfriend. He’s not into pastels as much as me. Because of the white, I’m not sure if I would use this product at a concert, but definitely the beach. Overall, I’m lovin it.
This seems to be the fitness product in this season’s box. FabFitFun is now providing workout routines, free, to all members.
So that’s it!
So after crunching the numbers, the total cost of this box would be:$374 USD, or $497CDN. That’s some major savings! Let me know what your thoughts are! Did you enjoy the products? Do you have any tips?
Thanks for reading!!
