FabFitFun Spring 2016 Box Reveal & Review!

FabFitFun Spring 2016 Reveal and Review

My husband laughs when I get so excited that my FabFitFun box for the season as arrived.  Sometimes I think men just don’t understand that sometimes the little things in life make us happy.  (Although this season’s box was quite large!)

I had ordered some add-ons to this shipment – products that I had received previously and enjoyed them enough to replenish.  One was the Juice Beauty eye cream and the other was the Manna lip gloss.  OK – on to the box contents!FabFitFun Spring 2016 Reveal and Review

Marrakesh Hair Oil: I’ve already tried this oil and can’t believe how soft it makes my hair.  I find myself petting my hair quite frequently lately LOL. (value $23)

Jus D’Amour Bath Bomb Trinity: I am a bath bomb-aholic.  Ever since we were in the Grand Floridian in Orlando, Florida and walked into Basin White, I’ve never bathed without one!  They come in so many scents and contain oils and moisturizers that are heavenly.  Jus D’Amour’s bath bombs smell wonderful and I can’t wait to try them out! (value $28)

Kitchen Herb Garden DIY Kit: I have a black thumb.  I’ve killed succulents, which I’ve been told is extremely hard to do.  I am going to try super hard not to kill the thyme, basil and mint in this particular kit.  My little guy said he’d help me maintain it.  Wish us luck! (value $35)

ISH Beauty Contour Kit in Light/Medium: Contouring scares me but maybe this kit by ISH, a sister brand to FabFitFun, will open my eyes to what everyone raves about when it comes to shading and contouring.  (value $32)

Jook and Nona Gold Plated Necklace: I’m a sucker for dainty necklaces and this one by Jook and Nona fits the bill.  It’s a simple plate with “LOVE” engraved on it.  I see myself getting good use out of it! (value $65)

HelloLegs: I’m a bit torn about this leg cream, but it boasts that it will give me the sexiest legs ever.  Bring it on!

Merrithew Mat Strap PlusMerrithew products seem to be a staple in a bunch of the past boxes I’ve received (Pilates DVD series and resistance band to name a couple).  No complaints here though.  What’s cool is that you can easily carry your mat to class with this and then use it for exercising.  (value $15)

Bodipure Keratin Gloves and Socks: I liked the concept behind these one-time-use plastic socks and gloves filled with keratin lotion.  I tried the socks today and thought they were OK.  One thing I didn’t do was think about how I was going to get back to the bathroom safely after I wore the “socks” for 20 minutes.  I didn’t want to get the cream all over my wood floor or fall on my butt (again).  I have one recommendation for the company and that is to make the “socks” a little thicker.  My toenails are not sharp, but when I moved the sock a smidge it ripped.  Yuck.  (value $10)

Sterling Forever $30 Gift Card: I’m ready to shop!  I browsed the site a bit and they have every trend imaginable in earrings, bracelets, rings, necklaces.  Definitely worth a peek! (value $30)

I did save what I felt was the best, for last.

Thirty One Bits $25 Gift Card: Let me give you a little background on Thirty One Bits.  Founded by 5 college grads who basically stumbled upon these super talented women their age while on a trip to Uganda, 31 Bits is not just a website that sells beautifully handcrafted jewelry.  There is SO MUCH more to this company.  They’ve implemented a five-year holistic development program where each woman receives health education, finance training, counseling, and business training. She belongs to a community where she can earn an income, be educated, and dream for her future. After five years in the program, the women graduate, leaving with an education, a career, social equity, confidence, and a voice. These 5 big-hearted entrepreneurial ladies now have 120 women in our program whose lives are changed. I got goosebumps when I read the story.

31 Bits was kind enough to gift me a bracelet to review and illustrate what one could purchase on their site.  The bracelet I received, Brooklyn Nights, is so gorgeous.  The multi-strand gold and cream in color bracelet (with a cool clasp) is neutral enough to go with just about anything but stands out because it’s different and eye-catching.  It is extremely well made.

  1. Hi Dana,

    I tried to pick one but I just can’t! They are all wonderful and I want to try them for sure. The bracelet also looks fantastic. That was a really great choice to buy all those wonderful gifts for yourself!

  2. Dana I love that there is such a wide variety of products in the FabFitFun box, and such amazing value too.

    I’m still up in the air about ordering any kind of subscription box, prices in Australia (for local boxes, might I add) just seem a little far-fetched for what you get in them, and I’m quite fussy. I want to see what they’re all about though because let’s face it, who doesn’t love opening a box of goodies mailed to them!?

    Best of luck with the kitchen kit! I’m pretty sure my thumbs are brown/black too…but our succulents are still alive!

    • I can order one here and ship it to you, right?! FabFitFun is a favorite for just the reason you mentioned – the variety! What are your secrets to keeping your succulents alive?!

  3. Such a cool box! I love the message behind 31 Bits. I would love to buy something from them and support the cause.

    • That would be so awesome Amanda if you supported 31 Bits! To get a beautiful piece of jewelry in exchange for helping women in Uganda better themselves – you’d be doing a wonderful thing!

  4. Seriously, that’s a lot of things for a subscription box! It’s the complete package for taking care of your body! Looks like you’ll have a lot of fun trying all of these products out!

    • Definitely having fun trying these products out, Elizabeth! I’m going to attempt the herb garden today, after the keratin gloves!

  5. I’m ready for those socks, too. When the seasons change in the desert, my feet start to peel. I work on them every single day in the shower so they’re usually about 98% presentable, but I noticed last week that the nasty cracks were beginning their annual pilgrimage to my feet!

    • Oh no! Definitely try out those socks Tina! Either that or at bedtime get some Vaseline, slather it all over your heels, put on a pair of socks and see the difference in your skin in the AM! Also I use a pumice stone when I am in the shower. It helps a lot with the cracking too!

    • I agree Marianne! I haven’t heard of a lot of these brands so it’s especially great for new companies to bring about awareness!

  6. Looks like there was a lot of good stuff in there. Love everything you got.

    • Totally understandable to be weary because you technically don’t know what you’re getting. FFF has proven to be worth the investment though!

  7. I’ve never even heard of this box before now! It looks awesome. The contour kit was the item I find the most interesting. A good contour kit is a marvelous thing. I wish you would have taken a picture of the inside!

  8. wow! what a great box! I love the little herb garden, and that necklace. that Gift Card sounds amazing too!

  9. Wow!! Looks like some great products you received. I need to check out FabFitFun!!

  10. I love the items in your package, but the one that stands out the most is the keratin socks because they would be perfect for softening my feet for summer sandals!

    • Eugenia it was GREAT! I like that there are a lot of items in each box and they are not over the top expensive.

  11. I’m so glad I’m not the only one who gets so excited about these boxes haha! I love those trinity bath bombs, I saw Kim Zolciak got them too and I’ve been dying to try them, now I really want to! Everything looks amazing, I’m super jealous! I want to try FabFItFun so bad! $50 is a steal!!!

    • Adriana, I think you would really like FFF! If you are a first timer I believe you can get a discount…check it out!

  12. When I first saw the name of this box I thought it was going to be like a workout box. This sounds like my kind of box! The socks look so funny but I bet I would love them, anything that makes my feet nice and smooth ready for summer
