FabFitFun Summer 2018 Subscription Box Review

img_1241.jpg

My Summer FabFitFun box has arrived! I subscribed in 2016, but stopped at the end of the year.  My last box was Winter 2016.  I liked the subscription but wanted to try something else.

I’m back now.  I saw a spoiler (I’ll tell you which one below), and had to resubscribe!  You can join FabFitFun here.  This is a referral link.  You will get $10 off with it!

FabFitFun is a quarterly subscription box. Each season they send you a box of $200+ worth items in categories like beauty, fashion, and fitness. Ir Reatils for $49.9.  You can get and annual subscription $179.99 for 4 boxes. You can also choose a lot of your items with an annual subscription. This month, I received:

 Summer & Rose Beach Towel — $55.00                                                                                         tarte tarteist™ PRO glow highlight & contour palette — $45.00                                                 Pier 1 Imports Marble Ring Dish — $14.99                                                                                     Erth TU Y YO Ring — $55.00                                                                                                         FOREO LUNA! fofo — $89.00                                                                                                       COOLA Classic Face SPF 50 White Tea — $32.00                                                                     Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator — $29.00                                             ELEMIS Papaya Enzyme Peel — $45.00

Summer & Rose Beach Towel — This is a microfiber towel.  It’s very soft, but I don’t know how absorbent it is.  I’ll have to test it out at the pool!

Pier 1 Imports Marble Ring Dish — This is gorgeous!  I like that it’s very classic looking and will work with all room decor.  The ERTH x Fab Fit Fun “Tu Y Yo” Ring is really cute.  I don’t know if it’s something I will wear, I may give it to my daughter for her birthday.

Foreo Luna Fofo — This is why I purchased the box.  I had a Foreo original size (a little bigger) before and loved it!  It cleans the face so nicely!  This is a brand new model.  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’m excited to try this out!

tarte tarteist™ PRO glow highlight & contour palette — First of all, this smells amazing!  I think it’s supposed to be chocolate scented (I LOVE the scented makeup trend).I’ve just used this a few times.  I like the powder sculpt shade.  It’s a nice cool toned contour.  The top two shades match my skin tone and I really like them. I might try the other two as eye shadows.

I’m almost out of my SPF moisturizer, so I will be using the Coola face sunscreen.  It feels really nice on.  I haven’t tried the Elemis peel yet, but I will this weekend.  I did try the Vasanti scrub, and it left my skin so soft!  I think all of this skincare is amazing for the summer, my skin will be smooth and protected.

I really liked this box.  The value was amazing for $49.99.  The total of what I received was worth $364.99! I think this is the best box I received from them.  I definitely think I will stick around for the fall box.  I might even upgrade to annual to be able to choose more of my items.  We’ll see!

Going To A Holiday Party? Get Your Glam On!

Do you have any holiday parties or special dates coming up this season (like my anniversary tomorrow)?  I love dressing up my beauty routine for special occasions.  Glamorous makeup and nails, maybe a tan and a great perfume will make the occasion even brighter!

Below are my new glam faves. What are yours?  Leave a comment and let me know!

Vasanti Blush For Life The Wild Life Blush Duo ($29 USD) — The Wild Life is a glowing berry flush. Blush for Life Soft, blendable tone-on-tone blush duo designed to add a natural looking pop of colour to your skin. Perfect amount of pigments and soft sheens without the use of heavy shimmer or sparkle. Enriched with Vasanti’s unique Flower Power Complex that contains Lotus, Orchid and Evening Primrose with anti-oxidant and hydrating properties to help nourish your skin.

Vasanti Love Brights Gel Matte Lipstick Unconditional Love ($19 USD) — Deep Matte Orange with a touch of Coral. Beautiful. Bold. Long Lasting. Comfortable. Matte.  8 stunning shades developed to look beautiful on a wide range of skin tones.  Innovative formula with the perfect amount of moisture to keep lips comfortable while still offering long lasting color and a true matte appearance.  Infused with luxury ingredients such as Cherry, Pomegranate and Evening Primrose oils.

Both of these products are well pigmented and very pretty on.  I like that the blush is not glittery and a little goes a long way.  You can use one color or blend them both together.  The lipstick is a little too bright for me, but it is very moisturizing for being matte.

Million Dollar Tan
Million Dollar Tan

Million Dollar Tan Mermaid Mousse ($42 USD) is ultra-lightweight and easy to apply. It gives a subtle instant bronze color, with a deep, gorgeous tan developing over the next few hours. The light-as-air formula soaks in effortlessly, and hydrating botanicals provide serious skin nourishment. Signature Million Dollar Tan color gives a gradual, buildable tan that always looks natural.  

Million Dollar Tan Mermaid Mousse Face ($40 USD) is the perfect companion to the all-over whipped tanning mousse. It’s also a great stand-alone beauty staple for any glamorous gal who wants a radiant, bronze complexion year-round. The lightweight formula simply melts into skin and won’t clog pores. Revolutionary new FaceFirm Age Defense Super Pack is clinically proven to dramatically lift, firm and tone skin.

These are both very easy to apply to give some color during the cold winter months.  I know my skin gets so pale this time of year.  They dry quickly, which is a plus and you can dress fairly quickly after applying.  Just like in the summer,  don’t forget to exfoliate before tanning!

Xs Black by Paco Rabanne for Women Eau De Toilette
Xs Black by Paco Rabanne for Women Eau De Toilette

Xs Black by Paco Rabanne for Women Eau De Toilette ($57.99 for 2.7 oz) –This tangy fruit is packed with vitamins and nutrients, and the bare scent of cranberry is much more sharp than sweet. As the weather gets colder, bid adieu to light, fresh scents that are perfect for warmer months and go for a stronger, heavier fragrance that opens with a tart note of cranberry and blooms in fullness with powerful woody, floral and musky notes.

This is a sexy scent perfect for date night.  It is a heavier fragrance, which is nice to have for fall and winter.
