FabFitFun was having 50% off their Fall box, and I decided to subscribe and try it out.
In my FabFitFun Fall box, I received 9 products, which is A LOT considering I only paid $25. Now let’s go into each of the products I received.
Dr. Brandt Skincare Clean Biotic pH-Balanced Yogurt Cleanser with Chlorophyll and Dermelect Runway Ready Luxury Foot Treatment: One of the items I got was the Mystery Item, and it included both the cleanser and the foot treatment. The cleanser removes makeup, dirt, and oil without stripping the skin, and it is suitable for all skin types. The cleanser also contains green tea, white tea, grape seed extract, and chlorophyll, which reduces redness and irritation from dryness and the added hyaluronic acid moisturizes the skin. However, Dr. Brandt is not cruelty-free. The foot treatment smoothes and moisturizes dry and cracked feet while being grease free. Unlike Dr. Brandt, Dermelect is cruelty-free. I have both multiple cleansers and foot creams that I have not finished using, so I ended up giving the foot cream to my mum since she often gets dry feet, and I kept the cleanser for myself since I will use it eventually.
Skinvolve Body Boost Gel: The gel contains green tea, ginseng, and menthol that acts as a pre-workout gel that targets problem areas such as the lower stomach and inner thighs to give you tighter and smoother skin. Also, Skinvolve is cruelty-free and vegan. This was another product I gave to my mum because I do not have a need for a pre-workout gel that targets problem areas.
The Better Skin Co. Lava Mask: This is a 3-in-1 cleanser, scrub, and mask that gives the skin a more radiant and youthful appearance. The mask buffs away dead skin cells and minimizes the appearance of pores, and The Better Skin Co. is cruelty-free. I am actually excited to use this mask because I have not used a lava mask before, and I love that it can also be used as a cleanser and a scrub.
Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Roller Ball: The roller ball contains a blend of vetivert, chamomile, and sandalwood that calms and comforts for relaxation. The roller ball makes it easy to use on the go, and Aromatherapy Associates is cruelty-free. I also gave this roller ball to my mum because she uses aromatherapy products unlike me.
Nassif MD Detox Pads: The detox pads clean, exfoliate, and firm the skin while softening lines and wrinkles. You can use the detox pads in the morning and evening to improve complexion, but if you have dry or sensitive skin you should start with twice a week then build up to daily use. If you have normal skin, it is recommended to start using the detox pads three times a week before using them daily. Also, Nassif MD is cruelty-free and vegan. I am looking forward to trying these detox pads out, but I am a bit concerned that they seem harsh for the skin especially since it is recommend to use them two-three times a week then building up to daily use. Also, I do not like tingling sensations on my face, and it is normal for it to occur with these detox pads.
Harper + Ari Exfoliating Sugar Cubes in Juice Cleanse: The sugar cubes are used in the shower to exfoliate and nourish your skin. You use the cubes by crushing one into your hands then gently massaging it onto wet skin. It is recommended to use the cubes twice a week or whenever you need extra pampering, and Harper + Ari is cruelty-free. Along with the mask, I am also looking forward to using these sugar cubes. I have used shower exfoliators before like the Soap & Glory The Scrub Of Your Life , but never in a cube form, so I am excited to try them out.
Aveda Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair: The hair repair contains quinoa protein, macadamia oil, and soy that repairs and protects the hair from heat styling. You use the hair repair before using heat styling tools by applying a small amount to damp hair and combing through. Also, Aveda is cruelty-free. I NEVER use heat styling tools for my hair (even blow dryers), so this is yet another product I gave to my mum because she uses a blow dryer most of the time she washes her hair.
Human + Kind Body Souffle: The body souffle contains apricot oil and shea butter that softens and moisturizes the skin. The body souffle absorbs quickly and is suitable for sensitive skin, and Human + Kind is cruelty-free. I actually received the mini of this body souffle in an old GoodieBox, and it was nice, so I am happy that I received the full-size version.
Even though the FabFitFun Fall box had a value of $279, it was a definite flop. I am so disappointed by this box, and I unsubscribed immediately. I received only beauty products despite there being a cheese board, lunch bag, wallet, scarf, straightener, yoga mat and other products offered. If I wanted to receive beauty products, I would have subscribed to the 100 other beauty subscriptions like GoodieBox, Ipsy, or Play! By Sephora. I read reviews of others who received a Fall box, and many were in the same situation as me where they did not receive ANY products besides the beauty products that were in the promotional images. It seems like the people who did receive other items besides beauty products were already subscribed to the box and therefore had first pick of the items and everyone else like me got the leftovers. If something seems like a good deal, there is probably a catch. Yes you will receive half off the box and the items will have a high value, but the items in the box will be nothing like the promotional images.
Did you receive the FabFitFun Fall Box? What did you think?
