Fab Fit Fun Unboxing and Review for Summer 2015

It may seem like a strange subscription box to feature on my YouTube channel since everything else I talk about is super-nerdy, but I’m really rather in love with the Fab Fit Fun lifestyle box. It has a wide variety of items – from fashion and fitness to health and beauty – and the value that they jam into the box is really quite amazing. So if you’re even the tiniest bit intrigued, go ahead and check out my unboxing video for the Summer 2015 box:

So this is the third box that I’ve gotten from Fab Fit Fun, and it’s my favorite so far. There were some fun items in the Winter and Spring boxes I got, but so far this Summer box is the one with the most stuff that I love. Let’s have a look at a breakdown:

Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturizer:
This is the only sponsored item in the Summer box, and while sponsored items can sometimes be pretty lame, I’m actually quite happy with this one. For one thing, who couldn’t use some moisturizer? For another thing it sprays on perfectly and smoothes into the skin in seconds without leaving any kind of greasy residue. This may actually be an item that I go on to purchase regularly. Value: $7.99

Gorge “I’ll Make You Look Amazing” Daily Spray:
I haven’t had too much chance to try this leave-in spray yet, but from what I’ve seen so far it seems to be of decent quality. It’s got a nice, summery scent and works through my hair easily, so I can definitely see myself giving it a good, fair trial. If only I’d remembered to bring it out West with me like I said in the video…grr! Value: $24.95

Hello Konjac Cleansing Sponge:
Okay, with this item I have to admit I wasn’t expecting much, but you guys, I’m in LOVE with it. I don’t even really know how to explain it but it feels SO good on my face, even without any kind of cleanser. It’s got this super-soft texture but really genuinely feels like it’s revitalizing my face. I don’t really know how else to explain it; you pretty much just have to try it out for yourself. I had intended to take this out West with me as well, but I forgot to pack it and now I’m super-sad! I’m definitely going to hunt these down online and buy a bunch because it genuinely feels like heaven. Value: $12

Inkling Scents “Sultry” Roll-on Perfume:
I haven’t actually gotten around to using this little roll-on fragrance yet, but I have to tell you guys that I do really like the scent. It’s very fresh and summery and is the perfect kind of scent for date night, if you get my drift. I do feel like it’s pricey for the size of the bottle, but that’s probably just me and my cheapness. Value: $25

tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss:
I’ve worn this a couple of times since opening the box and my opinion is a little on the fence, but more leaning towards the “good” end. My main problem with it is that it’s a sticky kind of formula that I find difficult to spread onto my lips. But aside from that it’s a beautiful color that also happens to smell delicious, and it actually lasts quite a long time for a gloss. I definitely think I can get on board with LipSurgence glosses. Value: $19

Headspace 3-month subscription:
An awesome thing about this item that I have to point out right away: no credit card info required. You know how a lot of times if you get a trial subscription to something they’ll make you do the whole sign up and give your card info so that they can charge you the second the trial is up? Well not so with this one; you just go to the link on the back of the card and type in your code and you’re done: three months free. As I mentioned in the video I’m definitely not into paying for this particular service because I feel it’s way overpriced, but I do love the meditations so I’m going to use as many of them as I can and learn as much as I can before my three months run out! Value: $38.85

Scratch Limited Edition Nail Wraps:
I haven’t struck up the courage to try these yet, since I’m so confident that I’m going to screw them up and waste them. I’m definitely going to have to do some research on them before I take the plunge, but at least for now I can tell you that the design is really pretty! Value: $12

FabFitFun X CosmoBody Jump Rope:
I’m always interested to see what kind of “fit” items are going to be in this box, and I have to admit that I laughed a little to find a jump rope. I haven’t tried this out yet because I was just too busy, but I’m definitely going to because if it’s true that you can torch 150 calories in 10 minutes…well, come on! That would be amazing! A fun little item for sure, if for no other reason that it’ll be nostalgic to jump around in the backyard with it. Value: $14

FabFitFun Everyday Wireless Speaker:
I fully intended to try this speaker out the second I got a chance, but then I never really got a chance, so I can’t really tell you what it’s like yet. I can tell you that it is super-cute, really lightweight, and I’m definitely digging the fact that it has a rechargeable battery so I don’t have to waste my Energizers on it. What I’ve read from other reviews is that it’s really easy to pair with a phone, so that’s a good sign as well. Hopefully when I get home from this shift I’ll get a chance to clip it onto my belt and take it for a good run. Value: $29.99

Wren Moon Pendant in Rose Gold:
And then we have the star of the show, because even if you’re not really a jewelry person this is an amazing value that you could easily repurpose as a present for someone who is a jewelry person. There were a few different options for the design and material types, and I chose the moon shape in rose gold. It’s a super-pretty color and has a delicate little 1pt black sapphire set in the center, and it has the most amazing value of anything else in the box. Value: $100!

Total approximate value of box: $283.78 (card says $275.79 because the sponsored item is not included in the value)
Total cost to me: approximately $40

I mean, come on, just look at that cost-to-value ratio. That’s amazing! And because there are tons of items in the box you can even afford to hate a few of them and still make out with an amazing value. For myself, the cost of the moisturizer, face sponge, and lip gloss alone make up the cost of the box for me, and those are just a few of the cheapest items! When you add in things like the necklace and the wireless speaker it becomes positively astounding, which is why I’m so hooked on this box. Maybe I don’t necessarily love everything that comes in each box, but the number of things I do love make it way more than worth it to me.

My favorite item in the Summer 2015 box? Right now I’m totally obsessed with the Konjac sponge, but I also feel that the speaker is going to be a big deal once I’ve tried it out. My least favorite item? Probably the nail wraps, only because I’m certain I’m not going to be able to apply them properly and they’ll end up being a waste.

Now I’m super-excited for the Fall box! Keep up the good work, Fab Fit Fun!
