Anna here! So I’m sure you guys have already heard about a subscription service called FabFitFun! If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a seasonal subscription that sends a box every three months and each box is themed specifically for the season in which it is received! It’s pretty cool because you get full sized products and the products range from fashion and beauty, to cooking and exercise! Its the perfect all-around lifestyle box that lets you try out different products for an extremely low price! The box is $49.99 every three months (four times a year) and the value of the box is typically way higher than what you pay for it which is awesome! So for summer time I decided to pull the trigger and get my own subscription and I was so excited to receive my box that I decided to share it with y’all! I also have a link here for you guys for $20 off your first FabFitFun box! (Valid from now until August 6th)
Michael Stars Ruana: This was one of the items I was most excited to get! There were three color options for this item and I received the black tie-dye one (which is the one I was hoping to get). I took this with me on my mini vacay to Lake Keowee and honestly I wore this every day I was there! Its the perfect bathing suit cover up but I also love wearing it as a shawl over a cute tank top!
Cargo Cosmetics Cargo_HD Picture Perfect Highlighter in Bronze: Y’all!!!!! I’m obsessed with this highlighter! I use it every time I wear makeup and it adds the perfect amount of bronzy glow to the skin! Am I applying too much…? Maybe.. Probably… but I don’t even care! Warning: the formula is a little on the dryer side when you dip your brush in the pan but its so smooth to apply it that I can look past the excess dust in the pan. Definitely a 10/10 for me!
Kris Nations Mystic Bar Necklace: This is the perfect everyday necklace that can be worn on its own or layered for a trendy look! There were several possible color choices for this necklace and I got the White Howlite gemstone beads with a silver chain. I love this necklace (even though I tend to wear more gold jewelry) and I’ve been wearing it with pretty much any outfit. It hasn’t quite replaced my Kendra Scott Iridescent Drusy necklace but its definitely in my top three!
BKR Little Bottle: This little bottle is adorable and the perfect size for when you’re on-the-go! I’m used to carrying around my Corkcicle bottle so carrying a smaller bottle like this has been quite refreshing (lol get it..? because it holds water? no? ok).
Juice Beauty Smoothing Eye Concentrate: When I heard that this product from Juice Beauty was going to be in the summer box I was convinced that I needed to start my subscription! I’ve heard so many things about this brand and I always see it at Ulta but have never tried it out! So needless to say, I was pretty excited about receiving this product in the box. So far I’m liking this product but I’ve been slacking a little bit when it comes to applying this product every night (I know… I’m awful) so the jury is still out on whether I’ve seen miraculous results. One thing I will say is that I’m not a fan of how this product smells… no joke, this stuff smells like Play-Doh. But that is something I can look past if the product works wonders for my unruly under-eyes. We shall see!
Eau Thermale Avène Ultra-Light Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50+: This sunscreen wasn’t really on my radar when I first opened my box but after using it a few times I’ve decided this is my new favorite sunscreen for my face! My skin is super sensitive and acne-prone so I’m very picky when it comes to the SPF I put on my face but this sunscreen is so gentle and light on the skin. I’ve been using the Neutrogena Face Sunscreen Stick for years and it never made my skin break out, but they recently discontinued the formula and came out with a new one that does not work well with my skin. So I’ve been in the market for a new face sunscreen and this one has replaced my beloved Neutrogena Face Sunscreen *praise hands*.
So the next two products that I received are “wild card” products that you don’t know you’re getting until you open the box!
Salted Himalayan Pink Salt Kit: I laughed a little when I pulled this out of my box. My first thought was “I don’t cook, what the hell would I use this for?” But honestly this little kit is so adorable that I’m fine with it just sitting in my kitchen looking pretty (lol yes I know how crazy that sounds). I’m starting to cook more often than I used to and I’ll definitely be cooking more in my near future so the time will come that I get to put this little kit to use.
Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk: *insert one thousand heart eye emojis here* This is my new holy grail dry shampoo!! I’ve finally found it! I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect dry shampoo. Between drug store and high end I couldn’t find one that would give me exactly what I wanted: volume, texture, and no powdery residue. But this is the one, my true love. This dry shampoo thickens my roots and give just the right amount of texture and grip without leaving a white cast on my hair. I’ve been using this pretty much every day (whether I’ve washed my hair or not) just because I love the way my hair looks after I use it!
Alright y’all, I hope you enjoyed my review/recap of what I received in my summer FabFitFun box (btw, my box’s total value was $276)! Let us know if you’ve also gotten one before or what you got in this season’s box!
Until next time,
