FabFitFun Summer 2017 Unboxing + Review

Happy Friday! How was y’all’s week? Mine was pretty good and quick. I got a lot of fun packages this week and the FabFitFun Summer box came in! Yay! This box is one of my favorite subscription boxes. Year after year I continue my subscription because it’s too good to pass up. For those of you that have tried it, am I right?

Well let’s get this unboxing party started. Spoiler Alert! If you want to be surprised and haven’t got yours yet then don’t continuing reading ;).

I’ve been a FabFitFun box subscriber for going on 2 years now. I don’t remember how I found out about it but I’m so happy I did. This box is so worth the money and one of the only box subscriptions I’ve stuck with for this reason.

What is FabFitFun?

FabFitFun is a freakin’ amazing seasonal subscription box that contains beauty, wellness, fashion, and fitness products with over $200+ in retail value. Boxes are shipped in December, March, June, and September (+- a couple of weeks). 

When you subscribe, you get the option to subscribe seasonally (billed ever 4 months) or annually (you save more $ and charged 1x per year). I subscribe annually because I love FabFitFun and I know I’m going to want all the boxes anyway. So I might as well save money that way, ya know?

Cost: 

Seasonally-$49.99 (or $39.99 with code SUMMERLOVE)

Annually-$179.99 ($44.99 per box)

Once you subscribe you go through a questionnaire so that FabFitFun can get to know you and your interest a little more. Another perk of subscribing annually is that you get exclusive access before boxes get sent out and you can choose what variety of a certain item you want. For example, this box we got to choose from different patterns for a scarf. So you get to pick which one most fits with your style and personality. πŸ™‚

So you want to see what’s in this seasons box now? Let’s get to it. 

FabFitFun Summer 2017 Subscription Box

Every subscription box comes with a cute mini mag but this month it’s a cute newspaper style brochure. This will tell you everything in the box, price, and a little about the designers.

Another thing that I love about FabFitFun is their charitable efforts. Each season the partner with a specific charity and they also highlight the newspaper. πŸ™‚ This season’s charity is Joyful Heart, an organization that works with sexual assault survivors to help them heal and reclaim their joy.

Now lets see what we got for summer! πŸ˜€

#1 Michael Starts Ruana – $54

Boom! First item and already got my moneys worth. This is an adorable scarf/sarong. As a VIP member I got to pick out which pattern I liked best, so I picked the blue one. It’s very beachy. 

This scarf is so versatile and serves as three pieces: scarf, sarong, and kimono. You can eve add a simple belt to cinch the waist and amp up the look. I absolutely loved this scarf that I put it on right away and wore it for my whole YouTube video here

#2 BKR Little-500 ML – $35

You can never have enough water bottles! This is a great size for on-the-go or traveling because it’s smaller in size. It’s a glass bottle which is even better! I fell like water taste so good in a glass cup or bottle. This came in blue or pink. Honestly I would have rather had the blue but the pink is super cute too. 

 

#3 Kris Nations Mystic Bar Necklace – $58

This necklace is so cute and dainty. This company makes a ton of dainty necklaces and you’ve probably seen them at American Eagle. I got the white Howlite which enhances intuition and promotes calmness. I definitely need calmness in my life after a lot of added stress these last couple weeks. I’ll talk about managing this in a post to come because stress is real y’all!

#4 Cargo Cosmetics Picture Perfect Highlighter in Bronze – $30

Two words-Freaking Amazing! I’ve used this bronzer everyday for the past week and a half. It gives such a beautiful glow and highlight. It’s perfect for summer and having a radiant glow. People will never know if it’s real or fake! haha. 

 

#5 Juice Beauty Smoothing Eye Concentrate – $29

I love Juice Beauty! They are one of my favorite companies to buy clean beauty products from. Getting back to the eye concentrate! Yay for eye cream because this girl is going to be 31 next week and wrinkles and fine lines are coming along with the age. So thank you FabFitFun for including this. πŸ™‚

#6 Eau Thermale AvΓ¨ne Ultra-Light Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50+ – $24

I totally butchered the name in my video but I’m really looking forward to trying this out. This would be perfect under any foundation or even mixed in for extra coverage. I feel like FabFitFun is really looking out for this girl and covering all grounds for keeping fine lines under control. 

#7 Way of Will 03 Soothe and Cool Massage Oil – $29.50

I was a little disappointed when I got this because I thought I chose the dry shampoo. This was another VIP choice item. I worked legs out Monday and was super sore the next day and have been sore all week. I tried this massage oil out and sooooo amazing! It smells amazing, it feels amazing, it’s just so amazing. I will definitely be using this up and I’m glad I chose this item. 

Bonus: Vital Proteins Marine Collagen – Sponsored Item

The only disappointment of the box. haha. I’m used to being spoiled with full size sponsored products in the FabFitFun boxes but not this season. We got a small sample of a drink mix that gives you healthier complexion. I’m not going to complain because it is the sponsored item but going from Nature’s Bounty Hair Skin and Nails Vitamins (40 count) to this was a little disappointing. I guess you can just try this to see if you like the flavor. Sponsored items are not included in the value of the box they are just a fun little bonus. πŸ™‚

IS THIS BOX WORTH THE $$?

They value of this summer box was a $287.50! I really enjoyed everything in this box. So my verdict on this box is that I definitely got my money’s worth for it. I always worry about getting too much of one thing over and over again with subscription boxes but this box, I can say, has such a variety. 

I have been a subscriber to FabFitFun going on 2 years and I’ve loved it ever since the first box. Now I can’t wait for the Fall box so I can do another unboxing. 

Dont forget! Get $10 off your next box here with code SUMMERLOVE

  8. It’s nice hearing about the box from someone who isn’t a celebrity haha. It definitely sounds like an awesome box though – that’s very cool that subscribers for the year are able to pick their patterns of specific items! Love that bottle and necklace!
