After I saw the full spoilers for the Summer 2015 FabFitFun VIP Box, I knew that I HAD to have it!
About the FabFitFun VIP Box:
FabFitFun VIP is a quarterly subscription service that sends you the latest in beauty, wellness, fitness and fashion items each season, hand-picked by the FabFitFun team. Each box is guaranteed to contain $200+ in retail value and costs $49.99.
Outside of Box:
FabFitFun VIP boxes ship via FedEx Smart Post. They were scheduled to ship the week of June 22nd, with annual subscribers being sent out first and then quarterly subscribers being sent out after that. However, I received my box a little bit later because I wasn't subscribed yet. I placed my order on June 27th and my box shipped on June 30th. I received it on July 8th.
Second First Look:
I had already seen the full spoilers, but I was still excited to see this full box!
Here's what came in the box! I'll start from the beginning on the information card to make it easier to follow along.
Wren 14Kt Gold and Black Sapphire Necklace (Retail: $100): This came in 6 possible variations. Subscribers either received the horseshoe, heart, or moon charm and they came in both a gold and rose gold finish. Each charm has a tiny sapphire set into it. I received the horseshoe charm in the gold finish. I like the length of the necklace and the size of the charm. It's a simple enough necklace to wear everyday. Personally, I would have preferred to receive the heart or the moon and the horseshoe was my least favorite of the charms. I'm hoping to swap this item for one of the other charms.
The Everyday Wireless Speaker by FabFitFun (Retail: $29.99): This came in either hot pink or turquoise and I received the turquoise one. This is one of my favorite items in the box! I'm so excited to be able to play music from my iPhone while I'm outside with the kids or by the pool!
Inkling Scents Sultry Roll-On Oil Perfume (Retail: $25): I generally cringe when I find out there will be perfume in a subscription box. I am very picky about scents and most of the time, I hate whatever is sent. I was SO excited and pleasantly surprised when I smelled this perfume and LOVED it! It is definitely "sultry" as described. I would probably wear it for a date night or a night out rather than for an everyday perfume. It's described as "a blend of creamy sandalwood, white amber, lotus flower, orchid, Bulgarian rose, and silky vanilla". This was a 1/3 of an ounce bottle. The information card also includes a discount code for their website!
Gorge "I'll Make You Look Amazing" Daily Spray (Retail: $24.95): This leave-in conditioner spray can be used on either damp or dry hair at the end of the day to refresh your look. It has a nice scent and I loved how my hair looked after using it! I sprayed it in damp hair and blow dried it after. I will probably buy more of this when I finish using it all.
Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss (Retail: $19): This came in several variations and I received "Fearless", which is described as a "shimmering pink coral". I am in LOVE with this lip gloss! I will definitely be buying more when I finish it. It's perfect for layering over other lip products, or even using alone as shown in my picture below.
FabFitFun x CosmoBody Jump Rope (Retail: $14): I received a jump rope in another subscription box last year, so I will probably trade this. I do love that it's pink though!
Scratch Nail Wraps (Retail: $12): I'm just not a fan of nail wraps. I haven't ever tried any, but that's because I just don't have any interest. I almost never even use nail polish. And I don't like this pattern, even if I were to use nail wraps. Going to try to trade these.
Headspace 3-Month Subscription (Retail: $38.85): The information card says that Headspace is an app that takes you through a series of life-changing, guided meditations. It sounds interesting and I might check it out. The gift card is pretty cute!
Hello Konjac Cleansing Sponge (Retail: $12): I've never used one of these before. I've actually never even heard of them until now! I love skincare products so I'm excited to try it out. It says that it gently exfoliates and thoroughly cleanses pores and is an all-natural way to restore the skin and balance your face's pH level. Can't wait to try it!
Sponsored: Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Spray Moisturizer (Retail: $7.99): I've never used a spray on aloe before, so I'm not sure how I will like it. I do live in Florida, but am religious about using sunscreen for myself and my kids, so hopefully I won't ever have to try this out! I'll stash it in the bathroom in case we ever do have a sunburn emergency.
All together, I came up with a total value of $283.78 for this box. There were a few items that I won't use (jump rope, nail wraps, aloe spray), one item that I'm hoping to trade for a different version (necklace), one item that I'm sure I will like once I try it (face sponge), and enough items that I absolutely LOVE (speaker, perfume, daily spray, lip gloss) to make it worthwhile!
