FabFitFun Fall Box 2019 Review

*If you are looking for a FabFitFun coupon code/link, scroll to the bottom of this post…after reading it all, of course!* 🙂

There are few things I look forward to more than my quarterly FabFitFun box…seriously. It is like Christmas Day (sometimes even more exciting!) when I get the email that my box has shipped! I refresh the link to see the tracking info of my box’s whereabouts nearly hourly, haha. FabFitFun is just awesome. If you have never heard of it, I will explain what it’s all about. If you have heard of it, and would like to see what I got in my fall box this year, then keep reading!

Straight from the FabFitFun website, this is what the FabFitFun subscription is: “As a FabFitFun Member, you’ll get a box of fabulous finds in beauty, wellness, fashion, and fitness – hand-picked by the FabFitFun team! Each box will be worth $200+ in retail value. You will receive a Seasonal Box (4) four times per year.”

Now, I will say…I have calculated the retail value of my boxes each time and I have NEVER had a box that was less than $230 in value. I have had boxes anywhere from $230 in value to $350 in value. A lot of times, it just depends on the luck of the draw (what they are including in the boxes for the season, add ons you choose, etc.), but I am happy to report that if you sign up, you will be hard-pressed to come across a box that is less than $230 in value.

So what do I like BEST about the box/FabFitFun you ask? Well, let me narrow it down for you:

  1. The products are always HIGH quality. Always.
  2. The products are always the latest and newest products on the market.
  3. The products are from companies that actually DO something good in the world of fashion, beauty, fitness, etc.
  4. The products make you feel like you have just left the spa or a nice boutique in Malibu or something similar. Read: PAMPERED.
  5. The box makes you feel like you’ve won the beauty/fashion/health lottery every time you open it!
  6. FabFitFun has the NICEST, most HELPFUL customer service representatives, there to just make your day better!
  7. I could seriously come up with twenty other reasons why I love this box/company, but I’ll stick to 7 since I said I would “narrow it down” for you.

I recently filmed a video of me unboxing my FabFitFun Fall 2019 box. If you would like to watch it, I will link it below. Some people prefer to watch/listen rather than read. But, if you are one that enjoys reading, then keep reading, because I am about to go over all the products I received in my Fall 2019 box!

There is really no “best” product to list first, so for sake of name, I will start with showing you a KATE SPADE product that I received in this box! I received a full-size Out to Lunch tote from Kate Spade (I die!) and absolutely LOVE it. It is small enough to put inside of another bag, but big enough to hold a Tupperware container, a water or can, some fruit, and a snack. It is perfect for the working woman or for me when I take my dinners to class at night. 🙂 This lunch tote is coated with a linen cloth exterior, insulated with an eva interior lining, and has gold metal zipper pulls. It is to die for. On the Kate Spade website, it retails for $30.

Since we are on the subject of bags, I next will show you the WALLET (yes, full-size wallet) I received in my box. It is from Kut from the Kloth (a brand I absolutely LOVE, especially their jean shorts!) and is adorable. It is the black and white Slim Striped Wallet from Kut from the Kloth. It retails for $60! The wallet has a snap-flap closure and contains 8 card slots (as well as a longer slot for cash.) It also has an ID window and is water-resistant. It is made from vegan leather (which, if you know me, you know I appreciate). It is just perfect. I switched wallets as soon as I finished taking this out of my FabFitFun box 🙂

In my box, I also received these BaubleBar Farah Ear Crawlers (a fancy name for a really cool-looking pair of earrings), and love them. They are so nice to have to dress up an outfit, or to wear on date night. Love, love, love. They are yellow gold which is my favorite. They retail for $34.

The next product I received is called the Dermasuri Deep Exfoliating Mitt Body Scrub and, to be honest, was the biggest surprise for me in terms of a product I did not think I would USE nearly as much as I have, nor ENJOY as much as I have! This mitt is amazing. It is a mitt that you use in the shower to exfoliate your body and oh my goodness – does it WORK – like to the point where I wonder where it has been all my life. You simply steam it for 5-10 minutes (I put it on the bottom of my shower for the first 7-10 minutes I’m in and let the hot water steam it) then rub your skin vigorously yet gently, removing dead skin cells. It says on the box that you can look at the mitt and see your dead skin…I didn’t think I would see ANYTHING…but man oh man, I was so WRONG! I had SO MUCH DEAD SKIN the first time I used it that I nearly got sick thinking about it! The most dead skin I had was on my legs. I knew they were somewhat dry, but didn’t realize just HOW dry they were until I used this mitt. Even if you don’t get the FabFitFun box, please do yourself and your body a favor and get yourself this mitt STAT. You will not be dissatisfied, I promise. It retails for $19.99.

I also received something else along the lines of exfoliating – these Harper + Ari Juice Clean Exfoliating Sugar Cubes and I LOVE them. I have yet to decide what I love more: the AMAZING cucumber/pear/peach-type smell to them, or how freakin’ soft they leave my skin! Either way, they were such a nice thing to receive in my box. They retail for $18.99.

As far as skin goes, I got several products for my skin, and am SO glad. I’m at that age (ahem…35…) where things are just beginning to look a little different (and not in a way I’m exactly fond of, haha) – so skincare has become even more of a priority for me as of late. I got this amazing Human + Kind Body Souffle (aka a really moisturizing, whipped-like, lotion) and absolutely love it. It smells SO fresh and clean and goes on so smoothly but doesn’t leave you feeling all “lotiony” if you know what I mean. It’s a must-have. It retails for $18.50.

One of the most amazing products I received in this season’s box was this awesome serum. My face has been struggling in the “youthful” department lately (again, what do I expect at 35?)…but hopefully now it will get a little bit of that youth back by using this serum. This is the Self-Esteem Beauty Sleep Serum by Dermelect and it is awesome from what I have seen so far. Rather than try to explain all of its goodness, I will just tell you what Demelect says on their site about it: “Fine lines, dark age spots, clogged pores and wrinkles are all telltale signs of aging, photo-aging and unhealthy skin. Self-Esteem Beauty Sleep Serum is a highly concentrated, anti-aging, exfoliator that stimulates collagen-building cell activity while working to help reduce wrinkling. It provides you with the ability to literally level your fine lines and produce noticeable results. Containing collagen boosting Vitamin C, an antioxidant, which helps lighten hyperpigmentation leaving you with a brighter, more even complexion. Simply apply this anti-aging exfoliator, leave on overnight and see the dramatic skin renewing results in the morning. Results in drastically smaller-looking pores, smoother skin and a brighter, more even complexion.”

So, basically, it’s an all-in-one serum that you apply before bedtime. What I have noticed so far (after one week of use, four times): noticeably smaller pores (which, historically, I haven’t had an issue with—until this year!), a brighter skin tone, smaller/less noticeable fine lines around the outer corners of my eyes (where the “crow’s feet” are), and just a healthy-looking glow. And this is after only FOUR USES. I highly recommend this product! If you like a light tingle, even better 🙂 This retails for $42!

Something else I received, which I have now added into my daily skincare routine, is this Cosmedix Pure C Vitamin C Mixing Crystals. They are SO cool. They are little crystals (that look and feel more like powdered sugar) that you add in to your serums or moisturizers for a little brightening affect (it also helps with fine lines and wrinkles). I have added this in with the Dermelect serum as well as my moisturizer and LOVE how they have helped to brighten my face! So cool that you just add them into your pre-existing products, too. This retails for $54!

For hair care, I only received one item (which, was kind of dissapointing…but I will get over it). It was the Aveda Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair. It is a leave-in treatment that repairs damaged (or heat-styled) hair in one week or less. You are supposed to be able to see noticeable differences after one use, but I have to say, unfortunately, I did not. I have used it for a week now and do not see much of a difference in my hair. If anything, it is perhaps a little easier to comb through when wet – but that is about it. I will say – this is the ONLY product I received that I have yet to see a difference with. Of course, I have only been using it a week, so maybe I will see some differences within the next week! It retails for $31.

As for makeup, I received the most AMAZING eye makeup product ever. Honestly, I feel like this is one of the BEST eye makeup products I’ve ever used – let alone received from a monthly/quarterly subscription service. It is the Mini Eye Essentials Set by Trestique and it is outstanding. There are four different pencils that come in the kit, and I have used and love them all. There is a light colored eye shadow, a brown colored brow pencil, a darker brown colored eye shadow, and a black colored eye pencil for eyeliner. I love them all. I love the brow pencil because it has a nice shape to it that allows a very smooth application and lessens the appearance of “drawn-on” eyebrows (which, who wants?!). I also love the smooth and silky eyeliner pencil because it does not hurt to apply (who else has experienced pain when applying eye liners?!?!). My FAVORITE part of this set are the two eye shadows. I can’t tell you HOW LONG I have been searching for a creamy eye shadow that does NOT wear off within an hour…well, look no further ladies: I have found it. The light colored eye shadow within this set is PERFECT if you are looking for a creamy, long-lasting eye shadow. I first apply the darker eye shadow pencil to my creases and then apply the light colored eye shadow to my lids and it makes for the prettiest, most subtle-yet-sexy-eye shadow duo ever. This really is one of (if not THE) my favorite products from this season’s FabFitFun box. I love it. Can’t say enough about it! Again, if you don’t get the FabFitFun box, please make sure you get this eye pencil set and the exfoliating mitt. You won’t be sorry you did! This retails for $48.

Well, that sums it up for the products that I received in my Fall 2019 FabFitFun box. It was a REALLY good one. If you are interested in subscribing to FabFitFun (whether seasonally or annually), I have a link you can use for $10 off your first box! Such a great deal. Click here for the link.

Please, tell me, do you get the FabFitFun boxes? If so, what is your FAVORITE part about them? If you don’t, is there another box you get? I would love to know!

As always, thank you for reading, and take care 🙂
