FabFitFun Winter 2017 – Unboxing and Review

fabfitfun winter 2017

 

Wow! Is it time for another FabFitFun unboxing already? The seasons seem to be flying by! We are in the midst of winter (and with the bone chilling temperatures we’ve been getting this past week, I believe it!) so all we want to do is keep toasty, warm and cozy.

For those who are unfamiliar with it. FabFitFun is a seasonal lifestyle subscription box that contains everything from beauty to fitness items. Seriously a mishmash of many different products for the season. Every box tends to be very high value (I’m talking in the $200+ and then some range most of the time!) so it’s not your typical subscription box. If you would like to try this subscription, please use my link here.

The Winter box is filled with all sorts of things to help you get through the season. But before we get into the contents, let’s discuss the Choice items.

There were two Choice themes this season: Beauty and Wellness. The two Beauty items you could choose from were the Grace + Stella Anti-Wrinkle + Energizing Eye Masks ($16.00 USD) and the Nelson j Beverly Hills Moisture Healing Hair Mask in Coconut ($23.00 USD). The two Wellness items were the FFFTV Fitness Ball with Jillian Michaels Videos ($16.00 USD) and the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray ($29.00 USD).

My Choices were the Nelson j Beverly Hills Moisture Healing Hair Mask and the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray. I can always use a new hair mask and the sleep spray smells like lavender and smells lovely. I do love a lavender spray on my pillow at night. I was happy with both of my choices this time around!

Okay, now on to the standard contents of the box… beginning with beauty items!

I’m a huge fan of Kate Somerville products – at least of the products I have tried! – so I was excited to see the Exfolikate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment ($75.00 USD). I just started using her products this year so I’ve never tried this product before but I’ve heard great things about it. This exfoliator contains papaya, pumpkin and pineapple enzymes and uses a combination of both physical and chemical exfoliators. Plus, its a two minute treatment. If it’s quick and effective, then perfect!

Next up is the DOUCCE Freematic Eyeshadow Pro Palette in Nude ($70.00 USD). This palette features eight eyeshadows and one highlighter. I haven’t tried it yet so I can’t say much about the formulation of these powder products but I do like how compact this is. I can see myself using this for travel and a 2-in-1 with eyeshadow and a highlighter. That is one less thing you need to pack!

The AHAVA Mineral Hand Cream ($33.00 USD) is a rich hand cream that is perfect for those of you who have dry hands. I know I get dry hands in the winter so this is perfect! I also like the scent, too.

Moving on to fashion items, the BB Dakota Poncho in Black ($70.00 USD) is so cozy and also very stylish! I’m glad that I received this colourway (the other two available was burgundy and grey) because it is reversible and the other side is grey. This makes it super versatile and it goes with pretty much everything!

The Pointe Studio Aloe Infused Cozy Socks ($19.00 USD) are so soft and perfect for cozy nights in at home. I live for cozy socks and slippers in the wintertime! I mean, who doesn’t love a pair of cozy socks in this weather? I also like how these socks are aloe infused. Super great.

The 8 Other Reasons Nine Lives Choker in Silver ($58.00 USD) looks super classy and delicate. Perfect for when you’re dressed up for, say a holiday party, for example!

The last item in this season’s box is the Homemade by Ayesha Curry Ceramic Mug ($16.00 USD). There were three variations of this product and I received the black and white mug that says “Coming in Hot” on it. Perfect for my morning coffee or evening hot chocolate. 🙂

The total value of my Winter FabFitFun box was $393.00 USD. That translates to $495.50 CAD at todays exchange rate. I think this is one of the highest value boxes I have received!  Add to it that I was happy with everything I received. Overall, I adored the Winter box!

What do you think of this season’s offerings? I’d love to hear what you think!
