FabFitFun Summer 2018 Subscription Box Review

This is my favorite FabFitFun box yet!!

A regular box is $50, coming four times a year, each box representing a Season.  I splurged on a year subscription, $180, so each box I receive comes out to be $45.  (Which means this review is not bought or sponsored.)  When you get a year subscription you can choose which items you want.  For instance, if there's mug options, you choose which mug you want and so forth.

Paying upfront and getting this option makes it all worth it.

Plus, being a member (which you can also be if you're getting box to box) you have access to exclusive exercise videos, cooking videos, meditation, and other cool stuff.  Also, with each box there are add-ons you can get at a discount in addition with the box, and they all ship together, items such as makeup, skincare, spongelles, jewelry, face masks, bags, etc.  Add-ons are addicting and awesome, and one of the reasons I got back into fabfitfun was because I can get Spongelles at a discount.

The Summer 2018 box!!

The first three items I'm reviewing came in everyone's box.


"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."

I love this FOREO face cleaner, but I'm not using all the features the description claims.  I've read online that the app isn't working right, and I don't want to drain the battery getting it to connect.  There are two sensors on the back that's suppose to analyze your skins age and needs, but kinks are still being worked out.

I love the fact that the FOREO is battery powered, as I don't have to charge it.  I just push the power button on the back and it vibrates, ready to use with a dab of liquid soap.  It runs for 3 minutes unless you hold the power button, which turns it off.

I've used the FOREO all week, and I love it.  I can't use Clarisonic as it makes my nose hurt.  (It really does, super painful, no idea why.) But the FOREO doesn't hurt my nose, and I love the way my skin feels.  Huge win!

Pier 1 Imports Marble Ring Dish

"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."

This is a cute little dish.  I already have a little bowl for my rings, so I'm going to use this under lit candles.

COOLA Face Sport SPF 50 White Tea Moisturizer

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

I haven't tried this yet, but it has really good reviews, and I need to use sunscreen more.  I hate wearing sunscreen, only depending on the SPF in my foundation.  Usually I just wear a hat or avoid the sun like a vampire. :P  Yeah, need to change that.

The first choice item.

Tarte Tarteist PRO to go palette A Sex Kitten Liquid Liner

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

I choose the travel palette over the contour palette.  I'm really simple when it comes to makeup!  And I have no interest learning how to contour.  The travel palette is cute and I like the colors.  The liquid eyeliner has a cat head.

2nd choice item.

 Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator

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

I choose the Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator over the wallet, though I did pay $10 to get the resistance band.  FabFitFun TV has fitness videos featuring the band, and I need to strength train more.

The Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator has a super fine grain in it, almost feels minute, but you can really feel it working.  It's something you really don't want to do more than a few times a week.  But I like the way my skin felt afterwords, nice and soft.

ELEMIS Papaya Enzyme Peel

"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."

I choose the Enzyme Peel over the hair spray.  Once again, I'm super simple when it comes to my hair.  I do color it, but I don't do anything with heat (hair dryers, curling/flattening irons, etc).

I just tried the face peel for the first time, and I love it!  It smells so good, like papaya, and it goes on like a gel cream.  You wear it for 10-15 minutes, and it goes on clear.  It doesn't look like you're wearing anything.  And when you wash it off it's smooth.

Yumi Kim Makeup Train Case

"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."

I love this travel train case!  You could either get the train case or get a towel, and there were two styles for both. I like the navy blue with a hint of piping color.  The inside is nice, too.  Love the pattern and departments.  The bottom is big enough for my palettes and makeup.  And I love the fact that the top has a place for brushes.  My brushes are a mess.  Really nice item.

Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress Muscle Gel

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

You could get a ring, Hawaiian Black Lava Body Caviar, or this Aromatherapy Muscle Gel.  I got the muscle gel, and it's so nice.  It smells so nice, and is really cooling.  I've used it a couple times now and really like it.

What a win for a box!  I do love being an annual subscriber, because I was able to pick out all the stuff I wanted between the choice items, which made me love the box even more.  Box to box members get to choose some items as well, but they don't have as many options as the annual members.  Also, if you're on top of it, before favorite items "sale out", you can add additional items for $10, so it is possible to get every item available in every option.
