FabFitFun Summer Box Review

*This post was sponsored by FabFitFun via Bloggin' Mamas*

All of you should know by now how much I love subscription boxes. Who doesn't, really? Getting to try several new products fro less than what it would otherwise cost to buy them, getting a special surprise treat in the mail, it's like having your own personal holiday.

Most subscription boxes come monthly and cost from $10-20. These boxes typically have deluxe sample sizes and sometimes a few full sized items, and they are great, but there is better out there. FabFitFun is a seasonal subscription box. It comes 4 times a year and costs $49.99, which is an incredible value considering the products inside total (well) over $200.

FabFitFun is also different from other subscriptions in that is includes full-size fash­ion, beauty, fit­ness and lifestyle products. Most other subscriptions are all one category, so you can get either beauty OR fashion OR lifestyle, etc. With FabFitFun, you get it all, which is perfect for those, like myself, who like to have their cake and eat it too.

This is actually my very first FabFitFun box, but it is definitely the first of many. I am already in love. This is the Summer 2015 box, and it is clear this is a summer box, because it is super hot. It even looks like a present, which made it even more exciting.

There are so many incredible items in this box, even more than I was expecting, and I love them all.

The item with the highest value is the stunning Rose Gold Hear Charm Necklace by Wren (ARV: $100). It is 14k gold dipped rose gold with a black sapphire accent. The chain is 18" with a 2" extender closure. I am thrilled because this is exactly my style, and I am picky about my jewelry, I only wear a select few pieces.

Next is The Everyday Wireless Speaker by FFF (ARV: $29.99). It is smartphone compatible and has wireless pairing, so it is so easy to use. The sound quality is excellent and the size is perfect, it can go anywhere, but it is not so small that you lose quality(or misplace the speaker, like I would if it was tiny.)

The Everyday speaker pairs great with the FabFitFun and CosmoBody jump rope (ARV: $14). I am working on getting back into shape after falling of the diet wagon and regaining all the weight I had lost. My biggest struggle is exercising and the motivation to do so. When I put on the tunes and go with flow with this jump rope, I can burn some calories and have so much fun that I don't back out.

After I mess my hair up by exercising, the incredible I’ll Make You Look Amazing Daily Spray by Gorge (ARV: $24.95) is there to tame my uncooperative tresses on the spot. My hair has a mind of it's own, and it is practically never tame, let alone after a workout but this stuff works miracles.
In fact, it is so fabulous, that I entrusted on of the biggest moments of my life to it. Last week I got to meet one of my all time favorite bands, Seether, and get my picture taken with them. I was so nervous about the picture, as it is likely the only one I will ever get, and I wanted to make sure I looked as good as I possibly can with what God gave me.

I did not want unruly hair to mar a photo that I plan to cherish forever, and thanks to this incredible spray, my hair looked basically as good as it has ever looked, even after the 1.5 hour car ride and literally running to the venue as I was late. I may not look amazing overall, but I was very happy that my hair obeyed for once.

Also seen in the photo(though it's hard to see) is the stunning Tarte LipSurgence™ lip gloss in Flush (ARV: $19). I love that it is so smooth, not only when applied but hours later. It is not too sheer in color and it looks shiny without feeling sticky. Stickiness is the biggest deal breaker for me on a lip gloss, so I am so glad I could fall in love with this. I am a lip gloss addict.

Also making an appearance during my Seether meeting was Inkling Scents Roll On Perfume in Sultry (ARV: $25). This perfume is A-Ma-Zing! I am so glad I choose to wear this scent that day because I was so stressed about being late, yet this scent kept me somewhat calm, enough that I did not fall apart, like I probably would have otherwise.

Also in this box were Scratch Nail Wraps (ARV: $12). I am horrible at doing my nails with polish. Honestly a toddler could do a better job, so usually my nails are naked. I love these nail wraps. Not only are the easy enough that even I can use them, but the last as long as polish and the pattern is adorable.

So far this box covered my health, hair, lips, scent, and nails. So, naturally, they would take care of my skin as well. The Hello Konjac Cleansing Sponge (ARV: $12) is wonderful. It is all natural, made from vegetable fibers, and is pillow soft, yet it exfoliates(gently) and cleanses pores. It restores the skin and even balances pH level. My pores are a huge issue for me, they are enlarged on my nose; it is awful. This sponge is so easy to use and it felt amazing during cleansing and my skin felt clean and soft afterward, it even had a glow.

To follow up the wonderful cleanse/exfoliation of the Konjac sponge is Intensive Care Spray Moisturizer with Aloe by Vaseline (ARV: $7.99), which was the sponsored item in this box. Sponsored items are a bonus on top of the already incredible value of the box. I love this moisturizer, it is so easy to apply, and it is light and absorbs super fast(which is essential for me). Although it absorbs quickly, it deeply moisturizes and leaves skin looking and feeling nourished and hydrated all day.

After taking care of my whole body, FabFitFun decided to take care of my head as well with a 3-month subscription to Headspace (ARV: $38.85). I had never heard of Headspace before this box, but it is basically a personal trainer for your brain. I always used to think I was pretty intelligent, but even then I was always striving for more. Now that I have kids, I can barely remember to to put pants on, so I definitely need this. I love that there is an app, so I can even use it when I am in a waiting room somewhere or something.

All in all, the total value of this box is a whopping $275.79! That is not even counting the sponsored item, which is considered a bonus. And it only costs $49.99! I don't see how that is possible, but I am surely not complaining. But it get ever better! If you use the coupon code WORLD at checkout, you will get $10 off, making it only $39.99 for nearly $300 worth of fabulous items. 

There is absolutely no reason not to get this. The lip gloss and the Gorge spray would cost MORE than this whole box of awesomeness. Don''t regret letting this slip through your fingers. Check out FabFitFun right now, use promo code WORLD and get a great deal on a huge haul of fantastic products.
