From the dirt to our plate; the trials and realities of first-time farm ownership

Spring 2018 Fab Fit Fun Box! And A $10 OFF Coupon!

I’m always excited to see a package waiting for me and the Fab Fit Fun Box is no exception! This is probably one of the best subscription boxes I have ever tried. The contents are well worth the seasonal fee and so far, they have all been things I would use on a daily basis. To me, that increases the overall value – after all, if you don’t use something it serves little purpose. Click HERE to save $10 on your first FabFitFun Box!

With all that said, let’s get on with it!

At first glance, once again FFF knocks it outta the ballpark. The box is pretty both inside and out! This season, I was able to choose some of my items (aka Choice Items) which allowed me to craft a box more to my liking. I didn’t add any additional product purchases that were offered – I’m simply reviewing a standard seasonal box.

Even though the box appears filled to the gills, a nice note shares a fun fact that it is missing a product. It also informed me that that I have yet another package to look forward to in the near future – I can’t be upset about that!

Releasing the tissue paper, my goodies were revealed to me. I can already eyeball a couple items I was allowed to choose in advance. Because I like the surprise of not knowing everything I’m getting in this fabulous box, I did not read ‘spoilers’ or view this in my online account.

“LOVE” by Maya Brenner Los Angeles
Retails for $65

This first product was a Choice Item I chose instead of the tassel earrings offered by Ettika which retail for $58. This “LOVE” bracelet/anklet from Maya Brenner is just the type of thing I’d wear whether I’m in my sweats or dressed to head to the office. It is simple, sends a great message and goes with literally everything!

ISH Lip Statement Palette
Retails for $42

I’m not one who has owned many palette style products, especially when it comes to lip gloss. HOWEVER, there is a first time for everything! Because I’m the kind of girl who just can’t seem to find the “perfect” shade, this ISH lip palette makes absolute sense. This product alone almost pays for the Fab Fit Fun box.

Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion
Retails for $40

I am super excited to be able to try this gem! I’ve heard a lot of good things about Murad products and have never gotten the chance to try them – until now. As I’ve inched into my mid-40s I have developed redness, dry patches and quite ironically, acne. This moisturizer tackles ALL of that. The seasons changing can also wreak havoc on my skin, so this is perfect timing!

Rachel Pally Reversible Clutch – Zahara
Retails for $60

I’m still up in the air on this one and I’m not sure why. Perhaps it is due to the fact I like my “purses” to have straps while this “clutch” does not. In any case, it’s super cute and if it comes down to it, it would make a great makeup or toiletries bag for traveling.

Spongelle Bulgarian Rose Bodywash Infused Buffer
Retails for $16

The first thing I did was sniff this buffer and all I can say is, “Ahhhhhh-mazing!” It is most definitely NOT your grandmother’s rose scented lotion…although, I like the memories typical rose scents bring. I look forward to my first shower or hot bath with this posey and I’m curious to see how long it will last. I’m not certain I would have purchased this at the retail price had I seen it in a store, but with Fab Fit Fun it was a nice bonus to receive.

Dermelect Cosmeceuticals Makeover Concealing Ridge Filler
Retails for $18

I typically steer away from polish colors that are this light – it’s just one more thing as pale as I am. One thing it does have going for it is it’s ridge filling ability, complete with moisture, vitamins and protein. It can be used as a base or top coat so I’m game to give it a try!

Free People x Understated Leather Starry Eyed Travel Eye Mask
Retails for $40

My husband might laugh at me for this one – I’m famous for using an eye mask to cover up the face of my alarm clock to hide the brightness. I love sleeping in a super dark room but I find most eye masks uncomfortable. The nose contour on this mask is great but I enjoy the molded eye cups of other brands. One thing this eye mask has that the other’s don’t? A cooling gel insert which can be utilized to diminish puffiness…and it’s cute (vegan leather BTW).

KNC Beauty All Natural Collagen Infused Lip Mask (5 pack)
Retails for $24.99

This is the second Choice Item that I was able to choose instead of the KORRES Guava Body Butter which retails for $24. At the time, my lips were dry and oh-so-tired of the winter wind. This product by KNC Beauty is supposed to plump and moisturize, with collagen, rose flower oil, vitamin E and cherry extract. It sounded perfect!

Dove Exfoliating Body Polish
10.5oz jar Retails for $5.99

Most gals may be a little under-elated with seeing a sample sized product in their box but I know how great this stuff is. For a product you can purchase rather reasonably at Target, this stuff is pretty awesome after a long, dry winter. A while back I did a little test panel work for this Dove Body Polish. Since then, it appears they have created a finer crush to the exfoliating macadamia shells which makes for a pretty pleasing experience!

Physique 57 Massage Roller
Retails for $20

Ok, so this is pretty cool. Some might not agree but if you are like me and wish your Better Half would learn to massage you – this might be the answer. Whether you use it on yourself, use it on your husband or vice versa – this feels good!! From reviews of similar products, regular use may also help reduce the look of cellulite. I love the color too!

Overall, I am once again please with the value and usefulness of my Fab Fit Fun subscription box. This seasonal box only comes 4 times per year at a cost of $49.99 – it is totally worth it! This Spring 2018 box has an estimated retail value of $354.99 (once I receive my candle which has a retail value of $45). If you are curious, I say to try it, you can cancel any time! Click HERE to save $10 on your first box – you can thank me later!
