CHI 44 Iron Guard $15  I do not use a flat iron because my hair is naturally straight, but I do blow dry my hair. I read in the reviews that some people still use this to protect their hair from the heat of the blow dryer also. It got a lot of mixed reviews on ulta. Many people said that it left their hair flat and feeling dirty with lots of buildup. And other said that it was great to use especially if you have the CHI flat iron. I got my sister the CHI flat iron one year for christmas so I will be passing this along to her. If you wan to try this product out at a discounted price checkout eBay

Great Soles Ballet Barre Socks $13 These socks came in pink for breast cancer awareness. I do go to Pilates twice a week, but I’m still not sure if I would wear these are not because they kind of look like something a 5 year old would wear. The reviews are saying that they are great for yoga and pilates though because you do not slip all over the mat, like you would with regular socks. They also rave about how comfortable they are. I think my main issue is that they are so pink. If you are very active on the mat and do not have a pair of these and want to try them out for less, check out eBay.

Beauty For Real True Color Lip Cream $22 This is a really creamy lip gloss and it looks dark but it is a very natural looking color when on. It has a built in LED light with a mirror on the side to perfect your lips and get the best lighting.  This is the coolest lip gloss I have ever seen. If you missed out check out eBay!

Mary’s Gone Crackers in Chipotle tomato pretzels $1? These are organic, gluten free, non-gmo, soy free, and vegan. I was pretty skeptical because of the way they look. They do not look or feel like normal pretzels but they are actually really good. Very spicy, but good. They also have everything and sea salt. I would have preferred to try something more in that area. I’m not good with spice. The shoe bag is only 90 calories which is surprising to me because its a nice sized bag.

La Natura Travel Size Body Butter $18 This is all natural, anti aging, soothing, nourishing, and 100% pure vegan! It doesn’t smell like pomegranates, it smells more like cherries or strawberries. You can find this on eBay for less.

Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster $56 This is gets AMAZING reviews on ultra. Everyone says that its great for dry skin and for winter. Which is why I’m sure Fabfitfun included it in this quarters box. I have borderline oily skin so I’m not sure if this is the product for me. I might hold on to it and see how this winter turns out and if I need it or not. If you need one, get one for less from eBay.

Jessie Steele Apron $29.99 I am OBSESSED with this apron. I love to cook and bake and sure I have a lot of aprons and I don’t need anymore, but this one is so 50s to me and I swear I was supposed to be a 50s housewife with a pie made for my husband every night. I wished they added some little baking accessory with it to get us into holiday baking. If you missed out on these super cute aprons check out eBay for more! ALSO: 25% off  use coupon LUVFFF25 at Jessiesteele.com

Gramr Gratitude Co. Thank You Card Set with Sealing wax and press $43 I thought this was the coolest thing. apparently this is a subscription box, They send you 4 cards, envelopes, stamps, wax and the stamp press to send Thank You Cards. I love this idea. The first month is 50% off use coupon FAB50.

Numi Organic Tea $.50 in Aged Earl Grey. If I’m not drinking water I’m drinking tea so I’m always happy to get more tea bags! I love love love black tea and this is supposed to be a black tea but it was a lot lighter than there normal black tea that I drink. Also has a  fruity flavor and smell to it.

The Honest Company Hydrating Shea Butter Cleansing Bar $4.95 I love the smell of this bar soap, but I don’t really use bar soap because of how it makes me feel waxy afterwards. But they all remark at how it does not make your feel waxy or grimy like most bar soaps do. I might have to hold on to this one mainly because I just LOVE the smell! Use Coupon: HONESTLYFAB to get 25% off your first order. Find soaps for less at eBay.

I’m extremely impressed with this month. Maybe because my favorite season is Fall so I just overall love this box. I payed $40 for this box and got a total of $233.44 of fun fall items that I will most likely use or pass on to someone else that will! I’ve never been excited for another FabFit Fun box but I am for December!  What did you think of FABFITFUN this quarter?

They are a quarterly box, which means that they only ship four times a year, for each season.Also they are $50 instead of Popsugar being $40. The summer box is supposedly going to have $225+ of wonderful curated products for you to love. Everything, just like the popsugar box, is Full sized. I received fabfitfun once before, when they just started out. It was there first month ever and I had such a horrible experience. I bought this box to see if they have made any improvements.

They have completely changed their box. When they first started out they had the same white and pink box as Popsugar Must Have Box

First Glance

Unveiled

 IMG_1467

This was the first item I pulled out. It is a $30 Gift Card for Thursday Friday.  I’m not really a fan of fake bags or totes with printed images of Chanel or Hermes on canvas, I’d rather have the real thing, so, I’m going to be passing this along.

IMG_1468

Along with the gift card comes this makeup bag from Thursday Friday for $35. I found it on their website in teal for $25 but I can’t find the pink one! You can even check out eBay!

IMG_1469

Kisstixx Sweet & Sour Lip Balm $5.99 At first I thought this product was pretty stupid, but then I did more research into the box and I found out that this product has been on Shark Tank! My boyfriends birthday is coming up so I think I’m going add this into his pile of gifts! You can even find different flavors on eBay! Use coupon code: KISSME1 for 25% off your next order!

IMG_1477

Always Xtra Protection Long Daily Liners $1.50 This is one of the reasons why I really dislike FabFitFun, they always include items that should be free samples or things that are something too personal to be in a subscription box. Subscription boxes are about curating a box around fun items that you wouldn’t normally buy for yourself. This I buy monthly. Try again FFF.

 IMG_1472

Balanced Guru No Frizz Oil $25 I’m not really sure what to make of this product. I don’t really get frizzy hair, so I don’t know if I would even use this. It has a strong smell of medicine, like honey lemon cough drops. Everyone is saying that it is great no matter how fine or thick your hair is, and just not to use too much otherwise you will get very greasy hair. Like trial and error to find the best amount for your hair type. I like how it is organic and it has a eyedropper. It gives a more medicinal feeling and not really a hair product kind of feel. You can find the travel sizes on eBay for ridiculously cheap.

IMG_1476

Zoya Nail Polish in Maya $9 I really like this color. I’m not huge on zoya though. But I’m pretty sure FFF is because in the last box I got from them I also got a Zoya nail polish too. I’m more of an essie kind of girl. I would totally paint my nails this color right now if the 4th of July wasn’t 2 days away! I have to get patriotic nails ready! You can also find this on eBay.

IMG_1474

FabFitFun Water Infuser BPA Free Water Bottle $15  ‘Grab Life By The Exercise Balls’ I can not find this water bottle anywhere online or on ebay. But I recently just got one of these from Popsugar so I don not need two.

IMG_1479

Skintimate Shave Gel $1.99 Again, Just like the panty lines, I hate when they add things in like this that I already have in my bathroom and things that women buy on a regular basis. Maybe its just me, but this really bothers me.

IMG_1473

POPchips in Barbecue Potato $1.29  WOW! this bag is only 100 calories and 2 grams of sugar! Thats amazing! They are so delicious! I’ve always passed by these chips in the store never giving them a chance, but wow I’m really happy I did. They are delicious and this flavor is great! They are even all natural, no preservatives, no artificial flavors or colors, no cholesterol, 0 grams saturated fat, 0 grams trans fat, and gluten free!

IMG_1470

Pur~Lisse Pur~Protect SPF 30 $55  All the reviews say that this is very light weight. This sunscreen is normal – dry. I don’t use sunscreen, especially not SPF 30 because I don’t burn. So I will be passing this along. You can find this on eBay.

IMG_1475

Slim Fast Have You’re Cake Meal Bar in Vanilla $1 I’ve actually been eyeing slim fast lately, now that my boyfriend has been all workout crazy. I’ve never really tried any of there stuff though and I didn’t even know that this flavor existed. I think this would also be another great idea to get my boyfriend a box of these for his birthday…as a joke gift. Anway these are actually delicious, they taste like cake batter! And they don’t have any after taste. I’m really impressed I was not expecting that at all!

IMG_1471

Sonya Dakar Flash Facial $95  I’m not sure if I will be keeping this item either. It has a lot of mixed reviews and also I’m only 21 so I don’t think I need this item for its benefits on wrinkles. A lot of people have also been complaining about some stinging with sensitive skin, which I have. You can find this item on eBay!

IMG_1478

So I’ve received $245.77 worth of stuff. I have to admit that I did find a few great finds and a couple of things I didn’t like or that were irrelevant to me currently. I’m not sure if I will continue my box for the fall. But we’ll see. What did you think of the summer box?
