This is my fourth FabFitFun box! Still loving it.
FabFitFun comes quarterly and is $50 for full size items. Plus you get access to all their online exercise videos; there's a good variety. I like that this box comes only 4 times a year.
BKR: Little - 500 ML Glass Water Bottle
I've been wanting to get another glass water bottle that was smaller than my 20-24 oz bottles! I don't know if many others are excited for this, but I am. Lugging my bigger glass bottle to dance is heavy and a bit of a chore, so this is awesome. It's well made. I actually like that the lid screws off and you drink directly from the bottle. Okay, short, gross story, but a couple years ago I kept getting sick, and even though I wash my bottles often, I noticed the lid had hidden corrosion and gunk. Threw that lid away and I stopped getting sick. So I only buy water bottles without fancy lids or straws. In short, this bottle is perfect, and it survived the wash.
For this box we got 2 choice items, based on hobbies and likes.
The first choice item was based on hobbies: Cooking, art, traveling. You choose one, not knowing exactly what it is, and if you want to get another mysterious item you can pay $10 for each addition. I choose travel.
The Cooking item was a Himalayan Pink Salt Kit coming with a grater, wood stand, and a block of Himalayan Pink Salt. In hindsight I wish I choose this.
The Art item was a Ready, Set, Create! Art Kit! by Amy Tangerine with a canvas, brushes, acrylic paints, and an alphabet stencil. REALLY glad I didn't get this. From a forum I was reading people were pretty upset, as this looks tailored for elementary kids.
And the Travel item:
Understated Leather: On The Road Again Travel Set.
I'm meh about this.
Only those traveling outside the Country will have use for the passport holder, and as I use a protective sleeve that blocks RFID chip signals my passport wont fit. The luggage tag looks well made, I love rose gold, but the "Hands Off" turns me off. So immature. If they would have written just about anything I would have loved it. My Mom suggested using the passport cover to organize travel receipts, which is a good idea.
The next choice option was between Sport and Beauty. I choose sport.
The beauty item was Dry Shampoo. So glad I didn't do that.
And the Sport item:
Way Of Will: 03 Soothe and Cool Message Oil
I love this! Really happy to try this out. I need to get back into strength training, so this will help. That one week when I walked about 60 miles--man I hurt all over--would have loved this message oil. It smells so good. This will come in handy.
Cargo Cosmetics: Cargo_HD Picture Perfect Highlight in Bronze
I actually don't have highlight powder, so once again another good item to try out. My makeup routine is really basic: foundation, blush, mascara, lip gloss, and occasionally some eye shadow. I'll have to watch some videos to make sure I'm using it right, but this will be good. Looks really nice.
Juice Beauty: Smoothing Eye Concentrate
I'm at that age where eye creams are a must. I'll never go the Botox route, preferring to age naturally, and I am noticing lines around my eyes. I've been using other products, so it will be nice to try out Juice Beauty, which I've heard a lot of good things.
EAU Thermale Avene: Ultra-Light Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50+
I know I need to use face sunscreen more, and it's hard finding a brand I like that doesn't make my skin oily. This is travel size, but I'm glad for that.
Kris Nations: Mystic Bar Necklace
Not happy with the quality. My Mom got the turquoise, which I believe is actually died howlite. The chain feels fragile. My Mom has been making bar necklaces in preparation of our ETSY store opening again in a week or two, and the chain she uses is high quality, strong, and the stones are natural. We go to the Gem Faire, so I'm spoiled in that I know what high quality gems and semi-precious stones are supposed to look like. I won't be wearing this. It's not worth $58. The little bottle is cute.
Michael Stars: Ruana
I love this. Another great item. There were three variations: White/Blue, White/Black, and Cream/Orange/Purple. I love the color I got.
The split down the lower half lets you wear it like a scarf, Sarong, or Robe/Shawl. It's long, which is nice. It's fun seeing a new take on the scarf.
This Vital Proteins Marine Collagen is a sample, bonus item.
The information paper. There's more than just talking about each item, there's tips and mini articles. I like this format and the details provided.
FabFitFun has good workouts online you can stream, included with your subscription, which is really cool. There's a lot here. Really nice perk.
My add-on items. Additional items you can get at a discount. The rose mist was $5 each. The fit book was $5. The Spongelle and exercise bands were $7. The lotion and gel duo was my biggest splurge at $18 for both, but the ingredients are all natural, which I like.
I love the box art. So cute.
