This week, as I mentioned in Tuesdays post, was a busy one. My husband and I were at home for a staycation getting some home projects done. We managed to get our yard back in order, finished our patio; both the pergola and the pavers and I took apart an entire fence to salvage the wood for our basement! I hope you all had a great week!
It’s that time of year again! The Fall FabFitFun box has arrived and it’s a good one!
IN EVERY FALL BOX
Sponsored Item: Luna Rica Bar in the flavor Salted Caramel Nut. Sponsored items are always an extra bonus each quarter. This bar is soft which I prefer. It tastes so sweet but it’s not overwhelming. This bar is filled with cashew butter and it is so yummy! With only 11 ingredients this snack is organic, gluten free, non-gmo and great for on the go.
Tea Towels from Simply Whimsical $14.99 You can never have too many tea towels. I have dark cabinets with light gray marbled countertops and a crystal like back splash so these towels go perfectly in my kitchen. I love the gray and white chevron pattern and they’re a really good quality.
I swear that every time I place an add on order I end up receiving that product in the box. I added the Grown Alchemist shower gel onto my order (see bottom of this post) and in the Fall box there is the Skin & Co Roma Blue In Capri shower gel $22. This shower gel can also be used as bubble bath which I love because I am a bath girl. The scent is wild sage and lemon. It is so refreshing and lathers really nice.
I love using a damp beauty sponge to apply my foundation and in the Fall box everyone got a Beauty Blender $20. Colors did vary but I received the pink one. Not only can this sponge apply and blend foundation seamlessly, but it can do the same for concealer and any cream/liquid products you apply. It also applies face powder really well too. The pointed end gets into your under eye area so well while the rounded end buffs out products quickly. This sponge is so soft and I love it! TIP: Wash your beauty sponges and brushes weekly at the least. They sit around and can accumulate all kinds of yucky things! I recently purchased the beauty blender cleaner and now I clean my beauty sponge after every use.
Another beauty product in each Fall box are two Glamglow Bubble Oxygenating Deep Cleanse Masks $18 ($9 each) These are sheet masks and they foam up with bubbles while you wear them. I use another bubble mask from Bliss that I love so I was excited to try these out. This mask is great for all skin types and helps reduce pores and uneven texture. It also helps remove impurities and makeup buildup. This mask smells subtle but it’s refreshing. It is very saturated when you take it out of the package and you only wear it for 3 minutes. When you take this mask off you rub the extra product into your face but there is A LOT left over so heads up on that. Simply rinse off with warm water and there you go!
CHOICE ITEMS – One OR the other OR both!
Vince Camuto Luck Tote in Black or Red Desert $128 OR Crown 6 pc Brush Set in Black, Silver or Rose Gold $75. I chose the bag, duh. I chose it in the red desert shade and I love it. You could choose between these items AND you can add the other option onto your order for an additional $10. What a steal! This bag is made of vegan leather which I think is great. It’s large and sturdy enough to hold a computer and looks so high end. It feels so soft and cleaning it is a breeze. Just use a damp cloth and BOOM! The inside is soft as well and has a little pocket.
Alfred Teapot (or more colors here) $26 OR Alfred French Press (This one is the same but does not have the ‘But First Coffee’ graphic on it) $22. I chose the french press because I already have a teapot. The press is made of stainless steel and looks so cute sitting on my coffee station. In case you didn’t know but FabFitFun has TV – www.fabfitfun.tv Here you will find recipes and cooking videos, how to’s, fitness videos and more. I watched a mini video on how to make cold brew coffee with this press and let me tell you it was delicious! The link to the video can be found here. It’s easy to use, it’s durable I think it’s so cute.
Catherine Maladrino Umbrella in Red Floral or BK/WT Floral $39.99 OR Cylo Cobra Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds in Black or White $40. I chose the wireless earbuds in white because I would get more use out of them. Inside the package you get 2 different sizes of the ear tips and a charger. These earbuds can also answer phone calls with the built in microphone. That was the real seller for me! They charge in 2 hours and can play music for up to 4. They are a little weighted on the control side but even through working out they did not fall out of my ears. You can wear them hanging down in front of you or wrap them around your neck.
SELECT ITEMS – Select 1 of 3 options. Become a VIP member and make the selection yourself, otherwise your decision is made for you.
Grown Alchemist Polishing Facial Exfoliant in Pink Grapefruit & Glucomannan Extract $67 OR Grown Alchemist Hydra-Repair Day Cream in Camellia &Geranium Blossom $49 OR Grown Alchemist Hydra-Restore Cream Cleanser in Olive Leaf & Plantago Extract $49 I chose the day cream. As I was reading up about this cream I realized that this is great for anyone out there with oily prone skin by helping to balance natural sebum levels. This cream also repairs UV sun damage, improves skin’s hydration and soothes. The scent is so light, floral and smells clean. The consistency is airy and not greasy.
Farmacy Dew It All Total Eye Cream $38 OR Touch In Sol Mataliic Liquid Foild Lipstick Dio in Penny OR Cuccio Somatology Yogahhh! Detox Bath $39.95. I bet you already know which one I chose. Yep, the bath salt. Add 3/4 cup to a bath and relax for 20 minutes. It smells like eucalyptus which I love. The packaging is really neat and has a twist off cap right at the spout. The scent does not linger as much as I would like it to in the bath but it is pleasant for awhile.
ADD ONS – Additional products that you can add to your order, at discounted prices.
NuMe 35mm curling wand $70 (I got it for $19)
As mentioned above, I added on the shower gel and I got the Grown Alchemist in the scent chamomile, rosewood and bergamont. $28-$44 (I got it for $12)
