FabFitFun Summer Box – Review – July 2014 & $15 off Coupon Code

FabFitFun is very similar to Popsugar Must have. They send you the best of each months in fashion, beauty, fitness, food, and home. They only have a few differences. 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

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
