Hi friends! I hope you're staying warm out there and enjoying the holiday season. Since winter has officially started I thought I'd kick off the new season by talking about my latest FabFitFun box! The things I got this time around probably won't be what others have gotten since FabFitFun is completely customizable. This box is probably my all-time favorite so without further ado, let's dive into this season's box!
1.) Vera Mona Color Switch Makeup Brush Cleaner- Retail Price $16.99
This has been a lifesaver! All I have to do is run each brush through the cleaning pad and all the product I used will be removed. That's it! No other cleaning tools necessary. Just wash it once a week in water and wait for it to dry. This is an item that won't be in every box because this is a select member-only customization.
2.) Rebecca Minkoff Marled Arm Warmer and Beanie Set- Retail Price $70.00
This beanie and arm warmer set has been a great addition to my winter attire. Not only are they stylish but super warm! Personally, I really enjoy that the arm warmers are fingerless rather than closed entirely. It makes using my phone easier and putting them on is a much smoother process. Due to some of the effects from my cerebral palsy the muscles in my hands- especially my fingers are very tight so not having to deal with individual finger spaces is really nice. This is a customization that everyone had the option to choose.
3.) DryBar Prep Rally Prime and Prep Detangler Spray- Retail Price $23.00
A little fact about me. I have a mess of tangly hair when I wake up in the morning. No matter what I do it always happens. By now, I was lost on what to do but then this spray by Drybar came into the mix. One of the best haircare items I've ever seen or used. Just a few pumps over damp hair and a quick brush through then you go on with your day. Speed and efficiency is a great combination at 7 am. This is an item that came in everyone's box.
4.) Makeup Eraser in Original Pink- Retail Price $20.00
I didn't know this existed until I saw it sitting in my box but I'm glad I have it now. This small cloth is total magic. All you have to do is add water and it wipes away a whole day's worth of makeup. It eliminates the use of multiple makeup wipes and is much safer for the skin. There's no dyes, chemicals, or other additives. This item was also another that everyone got in their box.
5.) Beauty Bakerie Proof is in the Pudding Eye Shadow Palette- Retail Price $38.00
I'm always on the hunt for new makeup. This palette is perfect for day and night because it's full of warm, neutral tones. The colors look great on the eyes and have plenty of pigment. Look out for future tutorials online to see the colors in person. This item is another customization for select members only.
6.) Battington Lashes Fake Eyelash Set- Retail Price $32.00
Full transparency here. I've never tried fake lashes before. I saw these in my customization choices and I said, "Yes, I need those." In person, they're stunning but also not too flashy. They come with their own glue and can be used up to 25 times. Look out for these in future looks too. This was a customization that everyone had the option to choose.
7.) Ban.do Bluetooth Shower Speaker- Retail Price $35.00
Who else likes to sing in the shower or at least play some of your favorite songs? This speaker is perfect for that. It's waterproof and has a suction cup so you can attach it right to your shower wall. I can say for certain that the product and sound quality is phenomenal! This item was another customization that everyone had the option to choose.
8.) Cuccio Somatology Calm + Clean Epsom Salt Hand and Body Wash- Retail Price $39.95
There were two mystery items you could get. A hand mask or this dual wash. I got the second option and I'm so glad. My skin gets dry and cracked much more easily in the winter so this has been an absolute blessing. I really like using it in the shower because it locks in moisture immediately so my skin doesn't get dry the second I get out like in the past. On top of that, the ingredients are natural and are all added to benefit your body in some way.
9.) My Add-ons
Add-ons are things you can add to your box outside of the customizations offered that season. You have to pay extra for those but add-ons are discounted by up to 70% for some members. This season, I got 4 add-ons that totaled $34. Three were technology cases by Mytagalongs. A computer, headphone, and charger case. The fourth was a floral travel coffee mug by XO, Sienna.
That's my entire box this season! If you would like more information on FabFitFun, there are two really good blog posts that I've done in the past. One is called, "You'll Thank Me Later" and the other, "Worth While Subscription Boxes". If you need no more persuading, you're in luck! I'm a #fabfitfunaffiliate so head to this link and use code WINTERFUN to get $10.00 off your first box.
