Fall 2015 - FabFitFun Lifestyle Subscription Unboxing and Review! + $10 off!!!

FabFitFun is a quarterly lifestyle box! For $57.99 for Canadians (is US $), (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 box has over $200 worth of goodies in it).  

FabFitFun has been shipping to Canada for over 1 year now and I have been very 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!!! 

Here is a look at the Fall FabFitFun box:

This looks like a really great variety! Now, normally FabFitFun has a fold out card describing all the items, but this month they included a mini-magazine type to explain the items and lots of extra details related to the box:

Here is a closer look at the goodies inside:

Passport to Beauty - Gold Radiance Luxury Facial Mask with Collagen and Rose Oil ~ $65 for 2 masks. Egyptians believed the healing powers of gold could cure all manner of physical, mental and spiritual ailments. Romans used gold preparations for treatment of skin lesions and sores. It is believed that Cleopatra wore pure gold for a radiant complexion. In ancient Chinese medicine, gold was the secret to youthful skin. 
The Passport To Beauty Gold Radiance Luxury Facial Mask is specially formulated with luxurious colloidal gold along with collagen to promote your skin’s natural beauty. The surface of the mask is coated with a gold essence and infusion of Rosa Damascena, a fragrant, pink-flowering plant that yields rose petals that provide the precious rose essential oil, regarded to be more precious than gold.

I'm sure all of you know by now that I LOVE my face masks. I am so excited to see these masks in FabFitFun and I really like that there are 2 masks included in this pack! I can't believe that these masks are $32.50 each but I will happily test them out and review them! 

HISY Portable Power Bank ~ $24.99. You no longer have to worry about your smartphone’s battery life! This battery pack includes a USB port for a wall outlet (USB to outlet dock not included). When needed, take the Power Bank battery with you for the day, charge your phone, and when you return home, recharge it for your next day out! Simple as that!

These are a great idea and it is an item I would never buy for myself, but I am happy to have it! My phone dies all the time so I will make good use of this! 

FabFitFun x Tappan Collective Umbrella ~ $32. This uh-dorable umbrella could brighten even the rainiest of days. We teamed up with Tappan Collective (an online platform for up-and-coming artists), to bring you this one-of-a-kind umbrella. With a quirky, colorful print created by L.A.-based artist Ashkahn Shahparnia this design is sure to cure the rainy day blues.

Does it rain in the Fall? I live in Alberta and we go from Summer to Snow (sometimes we get the snow in the Summer too...). This is a really cute umbrella! I do have a couple of umbrellas so I will likely pass this on.

Merrithew Strength Tubing Ankle & Total Body Tone with Tubing: Lower Body & Core DVD ~ $33. Thighs, glutes, and calves - oh my! This full length workout will tone your lower body and core to get maximum shaping and sculpting results. 

Merrithew fitness products have been included in FabFitFun before, but this is quite different. I like that the tubes are included with the DVD - I haven't really used tubing before but I will give it a try! (And, not that it's a huge deal but I added these 2 items up to $31.94)

Manna Kadar Cosmetics - Lipstain in "Lucky" ~ $24. Manna Kadar’s lip stains are the latest innovation in lip stains. Smooth application that keeps lips hydrated. Pigment lasts for hours. These amazing products are not only long-wearing with it's built-in primer but will also give you a matte finish. 

This color is really pretty - I think I am going to keep this as a gift as I have gotten a few lip products in similar colors recently! 

Dr D. Schwab - Flawless Skin Fluid ~ $39. For a flawless look in any light, Flawless Skin® Fluid replaces uneven skin tone caused by age spots and pigmentation with clarity and radiantly youthful skin. All natural ingredients, including Alphasomes® C-8, balance unwanted patches of discolored skin and restore clarity for a more youthful glow. It moisturizes and protects against free radicals and is excellent under makeup or on its own.

This is described as the perfect lightweight moisturizer - the reviews look good and I always love finding good moisturizers! 

Tribe Alive Glass Crystal Bead Bracelet ~ $49. These beautiful cut crystal glass beaded bracelets were designed in collaboration with FabFitfun and provided 60 amazing artisan partners with meaningful and life-changing opportunity. Look great and feel great knowing these bracelets were a part of making a difference in the lives of many women.

This is a really pretty delicate bracelet! I don't normally wear bracelets so I may gift this to someone who will actually wear it! 

Purple Purse Charm ~ $10 (not included in box value). In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness month this October, we have joined forces with Allstate Foundation Purple Purse to help spread awareness for this worthy cause. By attaching the purple charm to your purse, you can help support women in domestic violence and financial abuse. 

What a great cause! This is such a great addition to this box and I will happily attach this on my purse to show my support for such a great cause! 

Sponsored Item - Crest 3D White Brilliance 2-Step System ~ sample. Experience brilliant whitening results with this two-step system. Step 1 cleans thoroughly and Step 2 polishes and whitens to keep your smile up to 99% as white as a professional polish. 

I will use these for sure - I like the sponsored items to try. I'm sure this will work fine. 

Jeweler's Wife $15 Gift Card ~ $15. Treat yourself to something sparkly! 

The description included a line saying shipping is always free. Sadly, FabFitFun has notoriously not looked at shipping costs with gift cards - I checked and to ship 1 pair of earrings to Canada was $37. Nope - this will not be used by me. 

Picture It On Canvas $75 Gift Card ~ $75. Your best photos can be turned in to coasters, posters, canvas prints, iPhone cases, and more. 

Again, this description included free US shipping - shipping to Canada ranges from $25-$60, so again I will not use this. I wish that FabFitFun would be more thoughtful to Canadian subscribers with the gift cards included in the box. 

FabFitFun valued this box at $357, but I would put it the value lower because the gift cards are essentially useless to Canadians unless you are willing to pay steep shipping fees. Overall, I am still happy with the items included in this box. I will use or gift every item and there was a great variety. 

Also, remember with the Summer box how FabFitFun really messed up on the shipping and Canadians got their boxes a month late? They promised us something "special" in our Fall boxes. This special item was $10 towards the new "add-ons" that were introduced - these items were some past items that they are selling at discounted prices. This is what I got:

FabFitFin Water Infuser Water Bottle (BPA free) ~ $15. Don't waste money on expensive flavored waters, stay hydrated with a delicious twist on natural water.

I liked this water bottle from last time and thought I would get a second one as a gift for a friend who really liked the one I had! 

Did you get the Fall FabFitFun box? What did you think?
