So after much ado of trying to get the Summer FabFitFun VIP Box, such as getting confirmation e-mails saying it was being mailed out multiple times, e-mail spoilers as to what was in it, etc, I finally got my box! I had to contact Customer Service a few times, and so unfortunately I’m on the late-end on posting this review, as most others got their box in early July, but I hope you all enjoy it!
FabFitFun VIP Box is a quarterly subscription box, curated by the one-and-only Giuliana Rancic and of course the FFF Team, and includes various items from Beauty and Fashion to Health and Lifestyle, made for the VIP glamour girl. For $49.99, they ship the often-themed box out every 3 months, and it’s guaranteed to include full-size products that are at least triple the price/worth. I had always been interested in the box, and so when I finally got this one, I was excited to review it!
They include an information card that lists all of the different products included in the box so that you know a little bit about them. I like the variety this month: skincare, haircare and beauty products, plus some snacks and a pair of sunglasses!
First up are my sunglasses! These beauties are Ivory + Mason Sunglasses! I had a bit of trouble finding out the exact name of the design, but I would say they are over-sized tortoise shell frames. I totally love them, even though they are a bit bigger than I usually go, but definitely am happy to have gotten these versus some of the other more hipster-y styles. I currently have Ray Bans and Aviators, so this will be the perfect addition to mix up my collection. At approx. $135 a pop, I will definitely take care of these babies! One of the cool things is that if you didn’t really like your pair, you can exchange them for about $10 directly through the website.
Next up we have Orly Nail Polish in Choreographed Chaos and Catalina Su Lipgloss. The shade of the Orly Nail Polish is a very bright bold pink and definitely not for a wall-flower type of girl. It’s a bit more ‘in your face’ than what I usually wear, but I’m sure I will get use out of it.
The Catalina Su Lip Gloss is apparently a staple in Guiliana’s makeup bag, and so of course I wanted to test it out. It has a very faint, universal color to it so it would work with any skin color. I’m not a huge lip-gloss person, but have to say this is a nice, simple gloss.
Now are two facial products: Purlisse Pur-Delicate Gentle Soy Milk Cleanser and Evian Brumisateur Facial Spray. The Pur-lisse cleanser is supposed to be great for all different types of skin as a daily, non-harsh cleanser to remove oils and maintain clear skin. I’m very invested in my skincare and making sure I have flawless skin, so I’m all about this product.
The Evian Facial Spray is one of those items I would never go out and buy myself, but love to test out. I feel so VIP and famous having an Evian spray to refresh my face. I wish I had it earlier in the summer like during the heat wave in July, but I’m sure I’ll use it here and there. I recently received a similar item in my August GlossyBox so I’m all set with refreshing sprays for the rest of the year!
Next up we have two super-summery items! It Hair Care Surf Spray adds to my never-ending collection of Beachy Hair Sprays, as I received them in my July Ipsy Glambag and August Blush Mystery Box. But hey, I’m not complaining! I love summery waves, and so I’m definitely excited to try out this product.
The Infinity Sun Glow on the Go is a self tanner, as many of you know from previous posts how much I love self tanner! I was so excited and I can’t wait til I have some downtime to try it out. I think I’ll have to invest in a mitt, but fingers crossed this gives a nice natural and non-streaky glow.
To wrap it all up, I also got Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towlettes (10 ct.) and a KIND Bar in Madagascar Vanilla Almond. I already love Yes To products, and have tried out a few different types, like their Yes To Tomatoes Facial Scrub and Yes to Carrots Body Butter, so of course I was pumped to get these! The cucumber is nice and soothing and this is perfect if you just need a ‘quick rinse’ or as makeup remover.
I’m so-so on liking KIND bars. I think I just had a bad experience with a Coconut Almond one, and just wasn’t loving the flavor, however I tried out this one and liked it a looottt more. I definitely want to get my hands on a fruit-and-nut blend and try it out.
So here’s my whole collection!!! I think I’m most excited for the Ivory + Mason Sunglasses, IT Surf Spray, Pur-lisse Cleanser and Infinity Sun Glow Self Tanner. I really like the combination of items: you don’t just get makeup, or just hair products, but a perfect mix of box and more! I have to say it was worth the wait, and hope that FFF keeps this quality and quantity of products for their Fall Box.
