FabFitFun_Spring2020_LBL (3)

I am an annual member so I get to chose 5 out of the 8 items in the box and while I think I got some good items I wasn’t really excited with the selection this season overall. I’ll get more into that below. I’ll include a note if this was something I chose or if it was an item that the FabFitFun team chose for me.

On to what I got!

ReVive Light Therapy Glo Wrinkle and Anti-Ageing Light Device
MSRP: $68.00 USD
I chose this item

FabFitFun_Spring2020_LBL (5)

This multi-wave light helps to stimulate collagen and elastin. I was pretty intrigued by this product and wanted to give it a shot. Compared to the other options which included a tote bag and a sweater coat this one sounded the most interesting. I’ll have to try it out for 3-4 weeks and maybe give this a review on the blog since the device is new to me.

Murad Rapid Collagen Infusion
MSRP: $78.00 USD
I chose this item

FabFitFun_Spring2020_LBL (9)

This treatment minimizes the look of lines and wrinkles and is formulated with collagen. I never say no to skincare, especially if it can improve the look of my skin. I took a look across a few websites including Sephora, Ulta, and Murad and generally the reviews are pretty positive for this product. I hope it works well!

Cosmedix Pure C Vitamin C Mixing Crystals
MSRP: $54.00 USD
I chose this item

FabFitFun_Spring2020_LBL (7)

Now here’s where I started to get a bit unsatisfied with the selection of items I could choose from. There was a coin necklace, a weighted sleep mask, a mask set, body scrub and this item. I wasn’t really drawn to anything but ended up picking Cosmedix Pure C.

The Cosmedix Pure C is 100% L-Ascorbic Acid which you can add into your night time serum or moisturizer to boost their results. This is meant to brighten the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I kinda did a process of elimination when choosing this item but after reading a bit more about it I’m happy that I picked this. I think it’s an interesting concept and will give it a try.

Aria Beauty Luxe Detangling Electroplated Brush
MSRP: $35.00 USD
I chose this item

FabFitFun_Spring2020_LBL (11)

From all the options I chose a brush. I didn’t care for the body oil, or tea towels (although now I wish I picked these instead) or a hair remedy. It looked very luxe in the photos and the price suggested it would be fancy. Having it with my now, it feels really lightweight and not very special. The bristles feel a bit flimsy too. I like paddle brushes so I’ll use this but it doesn’t feel as good as others I have. I got one from Winners that was $14.00 CAD (so like $10 US) that feels heftier than this. This is a meh type of product.

Lovescript Body Wash
MSRP: $28.00 USD
I chose this item

FabFitFun_Spring2020_LBL (12)1

Again, another product that I chose because I didn’t really care for the other options (sensing a trend here?). I love body wash so I know I’m going to like this, but really, $28.00?! I have great body washes that cost me less than $10.00 so I don’t know what is so special about this product. It doesn’t claim to have any special ingredients or do anything, other than to lather up. Anyways, I’ll test it out and see how I like.

This Work’s Deep Sleep Body Cocoon
MSRP: $40.00 USD
FFF chose this item

FabFitFun_Spring2020_LBL (6)

Now, this was a product I wanted and was really excited I got. I love products that have some aromatherapy ingredients to help me relax at the end of the night. I love the Aveda Stress-Fix lotion and the Deep Sleep Body Cocoon sounds like it’s very similar. This has Shea Butter, Crambe, Camelia and Sativa oils that help to nourish the skin and Lavender, Chamomile and Vetivert to help you calm and relax before and while you sleep. I’ve very excited about this.

Chich & Tonic Silicone Straws
MSRP: $15.00 USD
FFF chose this item

FabFitFun_Spring2020_LBL (10)

I’m not really into silicone straws. The texture feels weird to me and I feel like I can taste silicone on my lips when I use them. I also find that little fuzzies like to cling to silicone. Basically, I don’t like them. I’d rather use metal straws. I will hold on to the brush cleaner since I can definitely use that and I’ll keep the straws for a picnic because the colours are so cute but they won’t be used daily.

Purlisse Watermelon Energizing Two Minute Polishing Peel
MSRP: $35.00 USD
FFF Chose this item

FabFitFun_Spring2020_LBL (8)

This face mask contains watermelon, antioxidant blackberry, cranberry and elderberry, for anti-ageing and natural radiance. It also has glycolic acid to smooth the skin. It has a physical exfoliant using pumice (a type of volcanic rock) as the scrubber to remove impurities. I don’t mind physical exfoliants but I know that not everyone does. Hopefully, this isn’t irritating but I’m pretty happy to get this in my box to try out.

My Thoughts

FabFitFun_Spring2020_LBL (4)

So there is my Spring FabFitFun Box, some items I’m really excited about while others are just so-so or downright blah! I guess next time I’ll try to choose more wisely so that I get items I know I’ll enjoy. My sister received the Spring Box and she opted for travel packing bags that I thought were really useful. Next time, I won’t opt for hair tools that I can easily buy somewhere else. The skincare items are good though!

Total Value: $353.00 USD ($482.00 CAD)

FabFitFun Box, Winter 2019 Edition

I subscribed to FabFitFun because I wanted to try something different than the monthly makeup subscription boxes I had before.

FabfitFun (“FFF”) is a seasonal subscription service with beauty, skincare, fitness, health, jewelry and other items. The box comes with a magazine that shares articles on life, health, beauty etc. as well as details on all the products in the box.

Membership Breakdown

Annual Membership

When I signed up I chose the annual subscription option. If you sign up for the annual box you get select status. As part of select status, you can get early access to add-ons and the ability to customize some items in the box prior to shipping. You also get early shipping. The annual membership costs $179.99 USD plus shipping and taxes (shipping is $8 USD to Canada each quarter, you are billed for 4 quarters in advance). You save $20 by signing up for the annual subscription (which in my case covers some of my shipping costs). I prepaid for the boxes and shipping for 4 boxes in one invoice.

Seasonal Membership

For the seasonal membership, you pay $49.99 USD plus shipping. You purchase each box individually but this is a great way to just test out a box without committing to the annual subscription. Seasonal members don’t get access to select status.

For annual and seasonal members the contents of the boxes are valued at $200+ USD.

Annual Access Membership

If you don’t want the box but want access into the other perks of FabFitFun there is also an annual access membership for $79.99 USD. This membership gets access into FFF’s digital perks which include FFFTV, FFF Community, early access to member-only sales, and early shipping.

All FabFitFun members get access to FFF TV, FFF Shop and sales. Membership also includes access to the FabFitFun Community.


On to what was in my box! I’ll include a note if this was something I chose or if it was an item everyone received in the box.

ban.do Bluetooth Shower Speaker
MSRP: $35.00 USD

FabFitFunWinter2019_LBL (7)

This is a water-resistant speaker with up to a 32-foot range. I like the floral pattern on this speaker. I put it into my shower and used it a few times now. It has a loud, clear sound even with my shower running. I like that I can skip songs, adjust the volume and answer calls while in the shower. It’s a really great device that I might not have purchased for myself but I like that I have it

I chose this item

Karuna Face For All Face & Eye Mask Set
MSRP: $42.00 USD

FabFitFunWinter2019_LBL (11)

This included 6 face masks and 1 eye mask. I haven’t tried any of these masks just yet but I do like having them for when I have a pampering day or when I want to prep my skin before wearing a full face of makeup. I feel you can never go wrong with a face mask and I like that this has a variety of them including anti-ageing, purifying, hydrating, exfoliating, etc.

I chose this item

Vooray Sidekick Crossbody Bag
MSRP: $17.99 USD

FabFitFunWinter2019_LBL (5)

This is a water-resistant small crossbody bag. I really enjoy bags like this in the summer because I can easily carry around my essentials. One thing about me is that I don’t like carrying around large bags. This has one large compartment that I can keep everything in. I chose this partly because I liked the bag and because I thought it would be fun to get something different than skincare or makeup.

I chose this item

Ahava Salt Bag
MSRP: $17.00 USD

FabFitFunWinter2019_LBL (12)

Sea salt helps ease muscle tension and leaves you with soft skin. Again, another great item for pampering. For a bag of sea salt, this is pretty expensive but I decided to get this because I wasn’t really interested in the other items being offered.

I chose this item

Cuccio Somatology Calm + Clean Epsom Salt Hand and Body Wash
MSRP: $39.95 USD

FabFitFunWinter2019_LBL (6)

I love me some new hand/body wash. This has a relaxing blend of lavender oil, pro-vitamin B5, and shea butter. I think this would make a great body wash because it has the added hydrating benefits which I love since I have dry skin.

I chose this item

Drybar Prep Rally Prime & Prep Detangler
MSRP: $23.00 USD

FabFitFunWinter2019_LBL (10)

This lightweight detangler uses biotin, vitamins B and C, and seaberry oil to protect hair against heat (up to 450 F) and leave hair soft and conditioned. I heat style my hair so I like having a product that is meant to protect it. I like Drybar products so I’m really excited I get to try more from this brand.

Everyone received this item.

MakeUp Eraser
MSRP: $20.00 USD

FabFitFunWinter2019_LBL (3)

This reusable makeup remover removes makeup using only water. I’ve been using this for the past few weeks since receiving it so I’ll share a review of it soon.

FabFitFunWinter2019_LBL (4)

I’ve always wanted to try this item because it does get a lot of good reviews. One side has sort fibres to remove makeup and the other side has longer fibres to exfoliate the skin. You just wet it with water and use it to wash your face. I like that this is large so I can use it multiple times before I need to wash it. It’s machine washable.

Everyone received this item.

R+Co Television Perfect Hair Shampoo and Conditioner
MSRP: $64.00 USD (for both)

FabFitFunWinter2019_LBL (9)

I love getting shampoo and conditioner sets because they are great to travel with or as a gift. I’m excited to try these and see if they actually give me TV hair, haha!

Everyone received this item.

These are awesome items! I’m so happy with the variety of products I received. Some other customizable options for this box also included; a beanie and arm warmer set, a candle, blanket, slippers, lash serum, necklace, makeup palette and monthly planner.

What was great for me is that I was able to customize 5 of the 8 items in the box which meant that I got products I knew I would personally enjoy. That’s what really set this subscription apart from others for me. While I love a good surprise box, I also like being able to choose what I know I will want for the season.

Total Value: $258.94 USD ($342.27 CAD)
