Mal’s Thoughts: Winter FabFitFun Box ($10 off code inside!)
Let’s take a look at this season’s FabFitFun box. This is the first subscription box I have ever received from this company and I will say, I am quite impressed. I was planning to cancel my subscription after this box because I just wanted to see what it was all about, but after receiving it I think I might have changed my mind.
How about we get to the products…
1. Gorjana Taner Toggle Lariat Necklace in Gold ($70 value)
Just with this necklace, I have gotten well over my money’s worth. I am so happy I got the gold version (it also came in silver, I am more of a gold kind of person). You can wear this necklace in so many ways and dress it up or down depending on what you are wearing. It is made with a very thin, fine chain and will compliment any outfit or other necklace beautifully.
2. Moleskin 2017 Weekly Planner ($21 value)
Again, I could not have gotten more lucky with receiving the magenta-ish color of this planner. I think I have decided the color of this planner is my new favorite color. This planner has weekly sheets for the year of 2017 and also has a note page next to each week. This is perfect for reminders, grocery lists, to-do lists, etc… After getting this planner I might never stray away from the Moleskin again.
3. O.R.G. Skincare Mineral Peel Face ($44 value)
This product kind of caught me by surprise. I sprayed it on my face and did not feel any texture so I was not expecting much to happen. After it sat on my face for a few seconds (as per the instructions) I began to rub it off. I could not believe the amount of dead skin I started to notice coming off. As someone with very dry skin this product is perfect for me! My face looks so shiny and I do not see any dryness at all. I may or may not be purchasing this product again once I run out!
4. D.L. & Co Blackberry Nectar Soy Blended Candle ($44 value)
Recently I have found myself to be very into candles. They make my house feel so cozy and warm. Opening my box to find this beautiful candle with a wonderful scent was a pleasant surprise to say the least. My Christmas decorations are a mix of gold and silver so it fits right in!
5. Anderson Lilley Winter in Manhattan Beach Body Cream ($24 value)
This body cream smells great! I also noticed it kept my skin hydrated for a long time. Being someone with extremely dry skin it is hard for me to step out of my lotion comfort zone of Cereve and Cetaphil. I have been keeping this close by so I can use it often on my hands during this dry season.
6. Marie Mae Thank You Cards ($24 value)
I love the simplicity and versatility of these cards. They come as thank you cards but I believe they could be used for anything that requires a card. They say “Cheers” on the front and the back of the card is blank. It is more of a notecard format where there are just two sides of the card. I am looking forward to an occasion where I can use one of these cards. The cards are exclusive to FabFitFun customers.
7. Butter London Iconoclast Mega Volume Lacquer Mascara ($20 value)
The wand on this mascara is different from any I have used before. It is skinny and then there is a wider ball towards the tip of the brush. I liked it because it was easier to get my bottom lashes without my nose getting in the way. It is not easy applying mascara to the opposite lashes of my dominant hand (does anyone else have this issue?). All in all, this mascara is OK. Nothing will ever beat Benefit’s “They’re Real” mascara in my eyes.
8. Starlight Children’s Foundation Pin
For every seasonal box, FabFitFun teams up with an organization to work with. For the 2016 Winter box, they have teamed up with Starlight Children’s Foundation to raise awareness for their program which provides services to children who are seriously ill. From what I have researched it is a great organization and I hope they gain a lot of exposure through this partnership. If you are interested in learning more about this organization and all of the great things they do head to their website https://www.starlight.org
