Mal’s Thoughts: Spring 2017 FabFitFun Box ($10 off code inside!)
The Spring FabFitFun box has arrived! This is the second box I have received from this company and I am absolutely loving it! When my box arrived I found myself as excited as a five year old on Christmas day. I love receiving items I would have never thought to purchase myself. This box contains a whopping $374 worth of products for only $49!!! ($39 if you use my $10 off code)

Lets break down the products and get my thoughts on what’s in the box:
1. Gypsy 05 Roundie ($50 value)
I was really excited to see a product like this in the box because I do not have anything like it. This will be useful if you are outside picnicking, to going to outdoor concerts. The tie-dye pattern gives this roundie a unique look. It also would look great just hung up on a wall as a decoration. I can see many compliments in my future with this!
2. Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-in Conditioning Spray ($20 value)
I always love a good leave-in conditioner. This one is special though because it adds reparative compounds to help strengthen weaker hair. I am a serial hair twister and no matter what I do I can’t stop! This has helped to repair the breakage I have caused due to my twisting. It also is a barrier against heat which is another important aspect of protecting hair. I got my hair cut yesterday and my stylist commented that she noticed my hair looks stronger!
3. Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator ($79 value)
Products that really do work to defy aging are always so expensive and therefore, I never really use them. Receiving this in my FabFitFun box is great because I get the product for a not so high price. I have EXTREMELY dry skin and have to exfoliate daily in order to not have flakes all over my face. This has been helpful because it gently exfoliates and I can use it while I am in the shower. I have been using this and the Karuna Hydrating Face Mask (also in the Spring box) together and have felt like my face has looked more shiny and moisturized.
4. Milly Zip Pouch ($45 value)
This product was probably my least favorite in the box. I received the Zip Pouch that said “Slay All Day” and to be honest thats just not really my style. This product would be great if you are at the beach or pool and need to put a wet swimsuit in a bag without getting everything else wet. Who knows, maybe this summer I will be in that situation and this will come in handy!
5. Karuna Hydrating + Face Mask ($28 value)
This face mask is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I have already put in my order to get more. Like I said earlier, I have really dry skin and it is difficult to find products that work to get my face moisturized. This face mask did the trick. I have been using these before a night out and after I exfoliate my face. The first day I used this face mask I received a compliment of someone saying my face looked really good that day. I didn’t see any flakes on my face after using this which is pretty rare for me. This is one of my favorite items in the spring box.
6. Realher Lip Kit in Deep Red, Deep Nude, or Neutral Pink ($48 value)
Was this lip kit created just for me?! It is made from natural products and has lip plumping elements added to it! I have very small lips (almost non-existent) and find it hard to find lip plumping gloss that doesn’t make my lips feel all tingly and weird. This did not at all and left a good color behind. It stayed on for a considerable amount of the day, I did have to reapply a few times though. As an added bonus, I always admire good packaging when I see it and I can tell this company did not cut any corners when creating the packaging for the lipstick, gloss, and liner.
7. Deborah Lippman Nail Polish Set in “Blue Orchid” and “Like a Virgin” ($19 value)
I have been going back and forth on what my thoughts are on this nail polish. I received the colors “Blue Orchid” and “Like a Virgin”. I really liked the “Blue Orchid” and currently have it on my nails. Now when it comes to the “Like a Virgin” I am having some mixed feelings. This is a lighter color that resembles white. I put on four coats of this and still could see my nail through the polish. I just don’t have the time to put ten coats of nail polish on and wait for it to dry. It is a very pretty color but was difficult to get to a point to where it was thick enough to give my nail the coverage I wanted.
8. Luv AJ Diamond Kite Crawler Earring Set ($85 value)
This beautiful earring set was a little out of my comfort zone but I love them! I have never worn anything like it and received a lot of compliments when I did. These are made out of 14K rose gold and have sparking stones that would be great for a fancy affair, or a casual look. These crawlers will go up your ear to easily become a statement piece. These are definitely worth stepping out of my comfort zone for!
This box contained TWO fabulous extras!
- Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies: I have been taking these with my breakfast smoothie everyday to enhance my hair, skin, and nails! So far I have only noticed strengthening of my nails. It has only been a week though I have been taking them. I am excited to see the changes! Oh, and they taste great!
- FabFitFun TV Workouts: FabFitFun partnered with Elite Fitness Studios to give each of their members access to FREE workouts. I have tried a couple of them and absolutely love them. You can choose between yoga, toning, bootcamp, barre, pilates, and cardio. I LOVE not paying for a gym membership and using in home workouts that cost me $0. I plan to use these during my daily workout routine!
This is another box that I am extremely happy I was able to receive and be a part of. This is a great company who handpicks awesome products that I love using. After this box, I plan to continue being a customer.
