TASTE OF SUMMER | SUMMER 2018 FABFITFUN REVIEW!

I literally wait by the door when I know my FabFitFun box is supposed to be delivered. The curation, the value, the brands. It’s all amazing. I’m also a select member, so I do get a discounted price (when paid yearly), early access to add-ons and more customizable options than seasonal members. (HINT: Sign up via this link and we will both save $10 off of our next boxes!)

+ Links may be affiliate or referral links. All items purchased by me unless otherwise mentioned. All opinions are my own.

FabFitFunΒ is a lifestyle subscription box that is sent out seasonally (4 times a year). It is $49.99 a box. Each season they send you a box of $200+ worth items in categories like beauty, fashion, and fitness.

FabFitFun doesn’t include a traditional information card, they send a “magazine” with all of the product information included, as well as information on the charity they’re supporting this season and exclusive information and interviews with the companies featured, as well as some nice tips & tricks on how to use the products.

The magazine this season features Rocky Barnes on the cover!

Yumi Kim Makeup Train Case ($58.00)

This train case is large enough to store your favorite beauty products and features two separate compartments with zipper closures so you can keep things organized.

TIP: Consolidate your liquid by using contact lens cases to hold your foundation, night cream, or hair serum.

Members were given the choice between this train case in two different patterns and Summer & Rose Beach Towel in two different patterns ($55.00)

I chose this train case instead of the beach towel, obviously. I love the pattern of this one, I think it’s absolutely beautiful. I don’t travel much, so when I’m not using it for travel purposes, I plan to use it on my vanity to store my daily skincare. It’s cute enough to use as a decor piece, and it will keep all my daily products nicely organized.

Tarte Tarteist PRO To Go Palette & Sex Kitten Liquid Liner ($43.00)

This palette features four long-wearing eyeshadows, two iridescent lusters, and a waterproof liquid liner so you can create a variety of summer beauty looks.

TIP: New to the cat eye look? Use a piece of tape to create a super-straight line!

Subscribers will receive either this or the Tarte Tarteist PRO Glow Highlight & Contour Palette ($45.00). Select members were able to choose + add on the second option for $10.00 more.

I chose this set because I already have the PRO Glow mini, which is a mini version of the highlight & contour palette, and this liquid liner is one of my absolute favorites! And the packaging for it is so damn cute. These shadows are very pigmented and blend together beautifully. I love that this is basically two products in one, which feels like such a steal to me!

ELEMIS Papaya Enzyme Peel ($45.00)

This rinse-off cream is made with exfoliating papaya, nourishing milk protein, and moisturizing vitamin E that work together to leave your skin soft, revitalized, and radiant.

TIP: Apply the peel to clean, towel-dried skin and leave on for 10-15 minutes. It will feel like a heavy cream (not a standard mask!) and can be rinsed off with lukewarm water.

Subscribers will receive this or ORLANDO PITA PLAY Atmos-Shield Hair Protectant Treatment Spray ($34.00). Select members were able to choose + add on the second option for $10.00 more.

I chose this peel because I have a ton of hair protectants and I don’t have a need for them very often, but I absolutely adore the ELEMIS brand, and I haven’t tried this peel before. Unfortunately, I haven’t had a change to try this out yet, but I will post about it in my Instagram stories when I do (@mommymessmer), as I do with all of my masks :). I did test out a bit on my hand though. The scent is incredible and it does feel more like a cream than a traditional mask.

Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator ($29.00)

Get glowing skin with this exfoliating cleanser! Its gentle formula effectively removes dead skin cells to reveal a smooth, even complexion.

TIP: Wet face and massage all over in a circular motion. Can be used 3-5 times a week.

Subscribers will receive this ORΒ Maji Sports Loop Resistance Band ($15.00) OR Minor History Post Script Wallet ($20.00). Select members were able to choose + add on the second/third option for $10.00 more.

I picked this one out of my three options because I have sampled this before, in past Birchboxes. I freaking love this stuff. It makes my skin feel amazing and soft. It’s legit like getting a new face. I’ve never had a facial before, but I have to imagine it’s similar to using this product. I don’t have a need for a resistance band, because I don’t do that type of exercising and the wallet was super cute, but I carry all of my cards in my main wallet, so that seemed a bit pointless for me as well.

The next option subscribers were given was again between three different products. You can also choose to add the other options to your box for an additional $10 per item. I actually got all three of the options this time.

ERTH TU Y YO Ring ($55.00)

This 14K gold-plated ring features two naturally cultured freshwater pearls set in a classic and modern design.

TIP: Avoid contact with lotion and sprays. Remove when swimming.

This ring is absolutely beautiful. It’s simple and subtle and elegant. I love rings like this. It’s also slightly adjustable, which is great because that means that I can wear it on different fingers depending on the look I’m going for.

Jaboneria Marianella Hawaiian Black Lava Body Caviar ($48.00)

This luxurious body treatment is made with natural ingredients that work together to exfoliate, condition, and hydrate all at once.

TIP: In the bath or shower, massage the caviar into wet skin, gently scrub, rinse off with warm water, and pat dry.

Ok, seriously. I mean, “body caviar”? I totally had to pay the extra $10 to try this out, right?! This has an amazing texture to it and really does a fantastic job at moisturizing and exfoliating my skin. Totally worth the extra ten bucks.

Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress Muscle Gel ($39.00)

Made with an invigorating blend of essential oils, this best-selling muscle gel instantly cools aches and soothes tired muscles over time.

TIP: Use it at your desk to relieve neck stiffness and tension headaches.

I decided to add this on as well for the extra $10. I primarily got this for Kylor, who gets stiffness in his neck from time to time and seemed interested in trying this out. I really like this brand, and so far this seems to be working for him. It has a very energizing, but relaxing scent and a wonderful cooling feeling when its applied!

Foreo Luna Fofo ($89.00)

Guess what? You’re one of the first to get your hands on FOREO’s newest revolutionary device. It is powered by Bluetooth technology and advanced skin sensors to create a totally personalized profile, which is sent straight to the newly launched FOREO LUNA app.

TIP: Avoid clay or grainy cleansers as they may damage the silicone touch points.

OMG. The Big Kahuna. This is an exclusive launch item, meaning FABFITFUN subscribers will receive this before it’s available to the general public. I have several FOREO LUNA Plays, which are the mini Lunas. I actually have gathered up quite a collection over time from subscription boxes, but this is an amazing piece of technology. This cleanser sends information via bluetooth to their app, such as: measurements of skin moisture, skin age, a customized cleansing routine, and progress. It requires AAA batteries, which are good for 400+ uses!

Coola Face Sport SPF 50 White Tea Moisturizer ($32.00)

This SPF 50 sunscreen doubles as a moisturizer. Its 80-minute water-resistant formula is made with 70% organic ingredients, so you can splash, swim and soak up the sun, worry-free.

TIP: Apply 15 minutes before sun exposure and immediately after swimming, sweating, or towel drying.

Coola is a brand that I’m very familiar with because of subscription boxes, but it’s nice to finally receive a full size. This has a “white tea” scent, so it’s much lighter than the traditional sunscreen scent. I love that this has such a high SPF and Coola sunscreens always feel great on my skin, and thin enough to wear under makeup!

Pier 1 Imports Marble Ring Dish ($14.99)

Use this dish as a perfect catch-all for rings, keys, or loose change. Its timeless marble design and golden trim will glam up any part of your home.

TIP: Place it near the kitchen sink, so you can take off your rings before doing dishes.

This is so cute! I’m a huge fan of marble (obvi), and I love having these little trinket trays laying around as mini catch-alls. I already have one next to my kitchen sink, but I’m thinking this might look super cute in my vanity area!

FINAL THOUGHTS:

This box was amazing! It had an incredible value, the curation was spot on and I loved the add-ons that were available! I cannot recommend this box enough if you aren’t already subscribed! I am constantly blown away season after season.

I will be posting my add-on haul tomorrow, so make sure you’re subscribed so you get notified when it goes live!

Did you get this box? What do you think of this season?
