FabFitFun Winter 2014

FabFitFun is a quarterly subscription box that brings together fashion finds,beauty secrets, and fitness gear put together by the FabFitFun team.  It is $49.99 a quarter but there are always deals to be had so the price of the box can be lower or you can get extra free products depending on when you sign up. They guarantee a value of at least $100 in every box, but I’ve yet to see anything that low.  This is only the third box that has been available for Canadian shipping from them I believe.  There are always a few spoilers out on this box each time so if you want a complete surprise this might not be the best option unless you have supreme willpower to avoid peeking at them.

The box is well packed so nothing moves about or gets damaged and the info card is HUGE!  It comes as a tri-fold and lists all the products with values and the total cost of the box (which is super high this time btw).

Once I peeled back the tissue paper I found that I could still see nothing really beyond Zumba and a gift card.

Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive-$39

I’m not sure why beyond the name, but I really thought this would smell good.  It doesn’t.  This was one of the early spoilers put out so we all knew it was coming.  This is supposed to exfoliate and refine skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, plus lighten hyperpigmentaion.  Even using twice weekly as recommended this will last a long time and if it works will be a good addition to my cleansing routine.

Half United Fighting Hunger Necklace-$34

This was another item that we knew was coming as they sent an email asking what color you wanted.  I chose the silver and while I like the message they have of giving seven meals for each necklace I am struggling to think of a place or outfit to wear this with.  I don’t have a problem with it being a shell casing I just rarely wear necklaces in everyday life and when I do it’s a more formal reason that a shell might not really fit into.  I’ll have to think about this one.

Zumba 60-min DVD “Max” and Gift Card-$55

I have taken a few Zumba classes and I enjoyed them.  It seems more like dance then work to me so I think that might be the reason.  They also sent out an email for those of us in Canada to give a different card number since the included ones are only good in the US and a code for free shipping as well so we can get the same value as our neighbors down south.  That is awesome!  I haven’t had a chance to check it out yet but am sure I can find something to order.

Passport To Beauty Tibetan Goji Berry Intense Anti-Aging Eye Serum With Retinol-$88

Well that is the longest product name ever and wow is this an expensive product.  There is just 15mL of product (by weight) in this bottle.  This is why I love getting these boxes as there is no way ever that I would spend that kind of money on an eye cream.  However I plan to use this everyday until there is nothing left in the hopes it works and reduces any lines near my eyes.

Daniel Stone COCO Candle-$42.00

I don’t know if there were scent variations of this or not but mine is Kai Gardenia scent.  It smells so good!  They are made from coconut wax, which is environmentally sustainable, which I’m guessing is the reason behind the price tag.

yourMinerals Eye Shadow Duo-$44.00

This was another item you could choose your colors for. Everyone received the Swedish Winter (white) one and you could pick between three others or choose surprise me, which is what I did.  To round out my pair I received Lavender Dream.  Both of these are good colors for me and I will get plenty of use from them.

Salted Membership-$29.97

This card gives you a three month membership to Salted online cooking classes. I am a great cook if I can read it out of a cookbook so maybe this can teach me to be one of those people who can just “throw things together” and make a masterpiece. Maybe.

Lather AHA Hand Creme With Evening Primrose-$30

The only thing I know about evening primrose is that if you are pregnant and want your baby out you can start taking it or putting the capsules into your lady parts to encourage that to happen.  I guess now I know it’s good for helping your hands too.  This smells a bit medicinal but leaves my hands not greasy.

Fashion Project Gift Card-$30

This was another gift card that the FabFitFun team sent out a few more instructions for, for us up north.  We do not qualify for the free shipping but can get it for $8.  I haven’t had time to check them out either but I usually have no problem finding stuff to buy online.

20141229_143555

Organic Valley Organic Balance Milk Protein Shake-$2.99

This is the first of three sponsored items in the box.  I have no problem with getting sponsored items if it helps me to get more other stuff and I haven’t tried most of the things anyways, so it’s a win-win.  This is a breakfast-type shake so we’ll give it a go in the morning after chilling.

Justin’s Classic Almond Butter-$0.63

This may be odd but I’ve never had any kind of nut butter that was not peanut.  I love me some almonds so I can;t wait to try this.

Special K Snack Bar-$0.43

I’ve had these before and they are really good. Like eat the whole box of them good.  Yum!!

The Winter box has a value of $383.59. Even with me having to pay another $8.00 for shipping on the one gift card, this is still a fantastic box.  I don’t think there is anything in here I won’t use once I find a reason for that necklace.  I think they have done a great job with finding items that fit the FabFitFun theme and can’t wait to do some shopping and get extra products from this box.  If you sign up in the next few days they are running a crazy promo where you can get this box for 50% by using code OMG at checkout.  That’s $400 worth of products for $25.00.  Get it while you can.

I’d love it if you’d use my link to get yours!
