I’ve been secretly coveting a subscription to FabFitFun ever since last year, when they had a stunning plaid blanket scarf and colouring book in fall 2016. Being in Canada and with the conversion to USD being stupid lately, it was definitely nothing more than a pricy wish… until the hubby decided it was going to be my anniversary gift for this year. What better way to spoil me than with a gift that I’ll actually get not once, but 4 times? (And here I thought he never listens what I babble about things I love on Pinterest!)
Since the order was placed after the select process was closed, neither of us got any choice as to what was in my first box. Being a bit picky, I was a touch worried, but I shouldn’t have been. I loved everything! After looking at the options I would have been given, I knew I would have chosen exactly the same ones that I got. How’s that for luck?
I’ve been trying out my new products since I got my box in early October, and I’ll have a few posts about what I think once I’ve been able to use them enough to have an “expert” opinion. I love FFF unboxing posts as much as the next girl, but you rarely get reviews on the products themselves besides the initial one.
I’m going to start with the box itself, like we all do.
Never having received one before, I hadn’t realized that the box was not going to have outer packaging. The art on the Fall 2017 box is absolutely stunning… it’s one you want to keep and use to store things, even if it’s just for a little. I love that the inside of the box was decorated too… it definitely adds a bit of whimsy and sparkle to the whole package.
Inside my box was the newsletter, which I didn’t think I’d read, but which turned out to be awesome. Not only did it give me great information on the products I received (which, let’s face it, I’m not beauty-savvy enough to really always know what to do with), as well as a few articles I really enjoyed.
Tucked inside the delicate wrapping were 10 products. I’ve reviewed them all now, in batches, so make with the clickies if you’re interested in what I thought! Here’s what was in my box:
- Wire and ceramic jewelry holder
- Denim gym bag (Private Party)
- Black belt (B’low the Belt)
- Cozy wrap (mer-sea)
Beauty and Wellness:
- Apple Cider Vinegar hair rinse (dpHUE)
- Mud mask (Whish)
- Lip crayon (TreSTIQUE)
- Cuticle oil (Deco)
- Hot and cold pack (my tagalongs)
- Wet wipes (Cottonelle)
I’m super excited to get my Winter box (made my choices this week… doubly excited!). I’ll do an unboxing post most likely and then give my review of the products if I can, too.
Not only does my subscription get me 4 boxes of goodies, it also gets me access to their “TV” section, which has workouts, it also gives me access to offers from the companies featured in the boxes, past products and those from those companies for an amazing price (12$ for earrings, 19$ for a crossbody purse… yes please!), as well as some amazing giveaways.
I don’t know how they manage to get so many amazing items into a box for such a fantastic price, and from awesome companies (so many are run by women!!!), but I’m glad I’ve finally hopped on this bandwagon. I am not disappointed!
