Spring 2016 FabFitFun - Unboxing and Review

FabFitFun is a quarterly lifestyle box! For $57.99 USD for Canadians, (FabFitFun is $49.99 in the U.S.A.) at the start of each season, they guarantee you will receive at least $100 worth of items - generally the past boxes have all had well over $200 worth of goodies in them! 

FabFitFun has been shipping to Canada for over a year now and I have been pretty happy with the FabFitFun boxes - this is one of my favorite subscriptions! I stick to it despite the crappy exchange rate because the value is always there!!! (I have to say the Winter 2015 box was not my favorite but I saw a few spoilers for the Spring box and had to get it!)

The Spring 2016 Box is their 3rd anniversary box! Here is a look at the Spring FabFitFun box:

Lately, all the FabFitFun boxes have come with really pretty designs - this one was also quite a bit bigger than regular! 




The box always comes neatly packaged and includes a mini-magazine to detail the products included with some extra information!

Here is a look at the goodies included:

FabFitfun always has a really great variety of products - here is a closer look at what was included:
spring 2016 fabfitfun subscription box

Shaving Emulation Lotion by HelloLegs ~ $19.95. Step up your shaving game! The folks at HelloLegs combined the richest body lotion with the most most gentle of shaving creams and added a bit of "blade butter" to the mix to give you a smooth razor performance you've never had before. Yup, this little bottle is about to shave your life. 

I'm not sure about repurchasing a $20 shave cream, but I'm happy to try this and see how I like it! 

Jus D'Amour Bath Bomb Trinity ~ $28.00. We're in love with this set, which includes organic ingredients and an essential oil blend. Wake up with the scent of eucalyptus, peppermint, and lime; take a deep breath with lavender, chamomile and ylang ylang; or set the mood with a love potion featuring jasmine, rose, and sandalwood. 

Mmmm... we all know by now that I love bath bombs so these will be great!

Keratin Gloves & Socks ~ $9.98. Treat yourself to a spa sesh right at home! Developed by Bodipure Inc., Keratin Gloves & Socks are a waterless, all-in-one hand and foot treatment that strengthens nails and moisturizes skin with the benefits of keratin. Whether you're at home or on-the-go, these babies give you the easiest mani-pedi treatment ever. 

I love using hand and foot masks, so this will be fun! These are individually packaged inside so you do not have to use the hands and feet at the same time (but I probably will on my next mani/pedi night!)

Marrakesh Argan & Hemp Oil Therapy ~ $22.99. Ready for your locks to spring back into action after a super dry winter?! This powerful blend of nutrient-rich Argan Oil from Morocco, combined with ultra fortifying Hemp Seed Oil, will significantly improve your hair's condition. This magical stuff tresses feeling silky smooth with a healthy, frizz-free, glossy shine! 

I think I receive hair products in these boxes faster than I can use them. This will likely be passed on as I just have so many different hair oil type products.

Contour Kit by ISH in Light/Medium ~ $32.00. The ISH Contour Kit is the debut product from the first makeup line created by Joey Maalouf and FabFitFun. Available in Light/Medium and Medium/Dark, each palette includes a highlighter, blush, bronzer and contour to bring out all of your best features (OK, every feature is your best, but now you can pick your favorites). 

I surprisingly don't have a contour kit - I don't really contour (I know, blasphemy from a beauty blogger!). I'm glad I got the light/medium shades. I do wish that this had a how-to to use but I did see some videos on how to use this here

31 Bits Gift Card ~ $25.00. There is no greater power, than to empower. And that is exactly what this jewelry brand does. 31 Bits jewelry is handmade by artisans in Uganda, allowing them to rise above poverty and create a better life for themselves. 

31 Bits have a lot of beautiful artisan necklaces and bracelets - they were actually kind enough to send some bloggers a piece to show subscribers what they can get from the website - stay tuned for my bottom of this post and I will have a piece to show you! 

Sterling Forever Gift Card ~ $30.00. Discover a mix of easy-to-wear pieces inspired by fashion runway trends, celebrity favorites, and coveted, high-end jewelry designers. The Sterling Forever team of style experts travel the globe, trend-spotting and seeking out the latest in cool-girl style. 

This website has a great mix of styles and a wide variety of price points as well. I haven't decided if I will use this or not - if I find something I like, I will use it! 

Tag Necklace by Jook & Nona "Dream" ~ $65.00. You might wear your heart on your sleeve, but we wear ours on our jewelry! The Jook & Nona Tag Necklace is made of 18k gold-plated stainless steel engraved with words to live by. Whether you get "Love," "Happy," Inspire," or "Dream," this piece is sure to help you radiate positive energy while adding a simple chic touch to any outfit. 

I got the Dream necklace - I should have taken a closer picture for you guys to see! This is beautiful and I really like it! It is quite delicate and is my style!

Merrithew Mat Strap Plus ~ $14.99. This mat strap had it all in the bag! Use it as a resistance cord for strength training during your yoga practice, or as an alternative to a mat bag. 

This is a good idea - it is a multi use product so you aren't dragging too much to your yoga class. I have noticed that quite a few of the "fit" items included in FabFitFun are from Merrithew - this is fine, but it would be nice to see a bit more variety of brands. 


spring 2016 fabfitfun subscription box

Herb Garden by MakersKit ~ $35.00. This kit is perfect for the indoor gardener who is looking to add some fresh green to their cooking! Easily grow three different types of herbs; Basil, Mint, and Thyme from the comfort of your home. Each kit comes with directions to walk you through the easy process of starting your very own herb garden. Once you are finished getting your hands dirty with the planting, place the growing containers in our handsome wooden trough. Your herbs will not only taste delicious, but look fresh while growing.

This is cute - I usually grow herbs in the Spring and Summertime, but if I do it inside my house my cats eat them all. So I think as long as this can go outside I will use it! 


FabFitFun valued this box at $282.91 (I would take a little off as I struggle with the giftcards being used towards the total value). Overall, I was pleased with the variety of the items that were included in this box and I will generally use every thing! I'm most excited about the bath bombs and necklace and am looking forward to trying the contour kit! What did you think of the Spring FabFitFun box?  

I mentioned earlier that 31 Bits was kind enough to send a few bloggers some pieces to show the variety of jewellery to help assist subscribers in finding a piece that they love! 31 Bits mission is to "Using fashion and design to empower people to rise above poverty". I love a company with a good cause behind it - so amazing!

Saguaro Necklace in Pink-Tangerine ~ $42.00. We’re paying a tribute to our heritage with the Saguaro necklace. Some of our original designs used patterns of various small bead shapes. We’ve re-awakened these patterns using new techniques and creating completely new bead shapes. Both color options are dusted with gold leafing, giving spring hues a bit of glam. Throw Saguaro on with a neutral tee or oversized sweater. Fastens with a button clasp.

This necklace is beautiful and the beadwork is amazing! Here is a look at it on:

This necklace is available in a few different color combinations. It is quite beautiful and I think it really embraces the mission statement of 31 Bits! Happy Shopping!
