Spring 2018 FabFitFun Unboxing

It’s FabFitFun time!  My Spring box is here and, as always, I’m super excited to share with you!

If you are unfamiliar with the FabFitFun seasonal beauty/health/wellness subscription boxes, you can search “FabFitFun” here on my blog and I have older posts that go into a lot more of the backstory of the box.

So, let’s go ahead and get into the contents of my spring box.

 

I will preface this unboxing to say, this is probably the first box I’ve gotten in a few seasons where I see things as more “gifts for others” than things I would be more likely to keep for myself.

And when I say, they’re more items I would give to others, it doesn’t mean they are bad; they’re just not things either I would get a lot of use out of or that just aren’t really my style.  They’re wonderful products, but moreso for other people.

The stuff that I am into keeping; I’m really excited about and you’ll see those products as we go through this.

Rachel Pally Reversible Clutch in Paradise

This is a really adorable reversible and foldable clutch that is a perfect color for this time of the year.  The one side is a pretty creamy white and the other side is a floral color that would be a really pretty accent and complement to a neutral spring outfit.  It’s a really good sized clutch, so you can easily fit quite a bit into it.  I really like the little tassel on the zipper; it’s just a really cute detail for a little extra pop of color.

Maya Brenner Design LOVE Bracelet

I am SO EXCITED for this piece.  I’ve heard rave reviews on Maya Brenner jewelry for a really long time but I’ve never actually tried any of her pieces, so I was really happy to see her in this box.  The best part is, as soon as I saw this, I immediately thought that this would be a perfect and dainty piece of jewelry to wear on my wedding day (the fact that it says “LOVE” doesn’t hurt either).  After the wedding, it’s perfect to wear on any day that I want a little bit of sparkle on my wrist.  It’s beautiful and I’m really happy to have this.

Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion

I’m also really excited about this.  I’ve used Murad’s Oil-Control Mattifier as my day face moisturizer for years and love it because it keeps my face feeling hydrated without it feeling greasy and oily by mid-day.  This lotion seems pretty similar to my old stand-by. It’s oil-free and lightweight while keeping your skin hydrated throughout the day.  It’s also supposed to refine textrure and reduce the appearance of pores, which I am also pretty excited about.  I will be happily breaking into this bad boy once my current Murad tube is used up.

ISH Lip Statement Palette

This is a beautiful lip palette that has 11 lip colors as well as a lip balm that you can either use under any of the colors or over top of for extra hydration for your lips.  I very easily see me giving this to my best friend since she is really really into makeup.  While it’s a beautiful palette; I don’t use a ton of lipstick so most of this would likely go unused for me.  At least, giving it to my friend, she will probably use all of the colors in no time.

Dermelect Cosmeceuticals Makeover Concealing Ridge Filler

I’ll probably also give this to my makeup guru friend since I get my nails done more often than not.  This product is meant to be used a top coat or base coat to help fill in any ridges you have in your nails and strengthen them.  So, it’s great if you are someone who has brittle nails or they break easily.

Spongelle Bulgarian Rose Body Wash Infused Buffer

This smells SO GOOD!  I pretty much was hit with the scent of it the second I opened the box.  I love the smell of roses and I love that this is a bit more coarse than normal sponges because it feels like it really exfoliates your skin and gets you nice and clean in the shower.  Did I mention it smells really good?  Because it smells really good.

Dove Exfoliating Body Polish

I love exfoliating body lotions and Dove lotions are usually really great on my skin and smell great.  FabFitFun boxes typically don’t have sample sizes, which is one of the reasons why I love them so much, but considering the two week trip we’re taking in a couple of months, I’m kind of okay with this as a trial size because it will be perfect for traveling.  I look forward to throwing this in my bag for the honeymoon!

Free People x Understated Leather Starry Eyed Travel Mask

I was so excited when I saw this.  I wanted a new travel mask for the honeymoon since we will be flying a lot and this one is so cute AND it has a cooling insert in it so you can throw it in the fridge (obviously not on a plane) if you need to.  This will also be great for migraines.  If you guys remember a random Instastory from me a couple of months ago with an icepack on my head because of a migraine; this would be perfect for that instead of that weird contraption I made up.  And it’s leather on the outside so it’s really durable and it’s a really soft cotton over your eyes, so it’s really comfortable.  I’m so happy for this!

Physique 57 Massage Roller

I actually brought this guy to work with me recently because, while I don’t sit a lot, when I do my lower back tends to get sore, so this has been nice to put between my back and the chair and just kind of roll it around.  It’s really helped to loosen up the muscles when they get tight.  This is another thing that I was looking into grabbing one of and now I don’t have to.  Plus, it would also be nice for all of the flying we’re going to be doing soon.

So, overall, again a really good box; a couple of things, while great, are things I’m probably not going to use and will gift to others.  But, most of this box, oddly enough will be a great help for our wedding/honeymoon or things that I was going to buy for it anyway and now don’t have to.  I’m pretty pleased with the contents this season.  And, actually, there is an item that was left out of my box (and a lot of others) because it was on back order, but it should be in my hands soon.  I’m VERY excited for that item and when it arrives, I’ll let you know!

If you are interested in trying out this subscription, head on over to here to get $10 off your first box.  Each box costs $49.99 (if you use the link your first box will be $39.99 and all subsequent boxes will be $49.99) and it comes out once per season.  I know it can seem pretty expensive for a subscription box, but this box that I just received had $350 worth of merchandise in it.  Even including the couple of items I will gift others, I’m still getting more than my money’s worth with this box.

For those of you who get this box, what was your favorite thing this season?
