Things might look a little different this summer, but one thing hasn't changed - FabFitFun boxes! My FabFitFun Editor's Box arrived at the perfect time and I couldn't be happier with all of the goodies inside. I just stepped up my self-care game big time and I want you to do the same. I've partnered with FabFitFun to show you my customized Summer Editor's Box and I've got a FabFitFun discount code just for you below!
With another surge of Coronavirus cases, it seems another hardcore quarantine might be in our future. It's pretty emotionally draining for me so I try to carve out a little "me" time to take care of myself. My skin and hair definitely suffered a little during the quarantine so I was thrilled to partner with FabFitFun to add some new products to my beauty routine. Their Editor's Box is on point and I love every single thing in my box.
If you aren't already familiar with FabFitFun, let me break it down for you. FabFitFun is a subscription box service that sends out a seasonal box full of 8-10 full-size, premium beauty, wellness, home, and fitness products four times per year. For just $49.99 each season (or $179.99 annually), you'll get a box that's valued at over $200. Members can choose 3-5 items in their box and they'll be surprised with the other items. Or, you can choose for everything to be a surprise if you'd like. I decided to customize my box because I really wanted to focus on my beauty routine and try some new things.
FabFitFun partners with many of the top brands in the industry to curate an on-trend, awesome box that's delivered right to your door (oh, and shipping is free in the continental US!). Once your box arrives, you'll find a product information card and a FabFitFun magazine that explains your membership benefits and tells you more about some of the items in your box.
FabFitFun Summer Editor's Box
I selected 5 of the items in my Summer Editor's Box and the rest were surprises. I did the math on just the products I chose and they were valued at $213. And, I was going to get at least 3 more full-size products!
The first item I chose was the Too Faced Hangover Good to Go Skin Protecting SPF 25 Moisturizer. I'd gotten a series of IPL laser treatments on my face to correct dark spots so I really needed a good SPF moisturizer to protect my skin. I absolutely love all of the Too Faced makeup that I have so this called out to me.
It's light and has a really mild scent. It hydrates with a blend of cinnamon bark extract, coconut water, and jojoba oil. It's valued at $34 and it's definitely a winner in my book.
I also selected Murad Rapid Collagen Infusion. If you know skincare products, you know Murad is where it's at. This anti-aging treatment is valued at $78 and is formulated with collagen amino acids to minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Just this product alone is worth more than what you pay for the entire box!
HydroPeptide Bambusa Blackhead Banisher treatments were next on my list. You get 8 volcanic ash and charcoal treatments in this box to help you banish blackheads on your nose. It's valued at $22.
Since my split ends were really becoming a problem, I also picked this Moroccan Gold Series Leave-In Mask. It moisturizes and protects hair against UV rays while sealing split ends. It retails for $39. I'm really looking forward to seeing how this works during these hot Florida months.
The last thing I chose was CALPAK packing cubes. I discovered packing cubes during my diaper bag days and they are simply amazing. They help keep everything so organized! This 3-pack of Sorbet packing cubes is valued at $40 and I think they're pretty perfect. One side is mesh so you can the contents without having to unzip each bag and there's even a spot for a label.
Now for the surprise FFF picks! I was really looking forward to seeing what the Editor picks would be and I was not disappointed.
First up was the Vera Mona Color SwitchSolo. This unique makeup brush cleaner lets you change hues with no water or liquid required. You simply swipe the brush over the sponge until pigment is removed and move on to the next color.
The Color Switch Solo is valued at $16.99 and is completely reusable and washable. I had no idea I needed this in my life, but I love it. It makes applying eye shadow so much easier since you can switch colors quickly without switching brushes or waiting for the brush to dry after cleaning.
Spongellé Body Wash Infused Buffer in Black Orchid was another surprise item. This buffer is the epitome of a self-care pampering item and I am here for it! I used one of these at a luxury hotel recently and made a mental note to pick one up for home use. You just place the sponge under running water and then massage your skin to cleanse. It gently buffs your body leaving your skin hydrating and slightly scented. You can get up to 14 uses per sponge and then it can be repurposed once the body-wash has been used up. They retail for $16 each.
Last, but certainly not least, was my favorite item of all. I was thrilled to see a MakeUp Eraser included in the Summer Editor’s Box. I have wanted one of these for a few years but wasn't sure it was worth the $31 price tag. If that sounds like you, do yourself a favor and order this box. This cloth is like magic. You can clean your makeup away with just water. I'm talking waterproof mascara, eyeliner, foundation, and lipstick. The Makeup Eraser is reusable and machine washable so it's super low maintenance.
So, for $49.99 (but you can get it for $39.99 with my FabFitFun promo code - just use VIVA to save $10 off your first box), you can get this box of full-size products! My box was valued at $277 and I really couldn't be happier with the items I chose and that FFF picked for me. And, as if the incredible value wasn't enough, FabFitFun also raises funds and awareness for non-profits each season. FabFitFun has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years and right now they're partnering with the Special Olympics to end the discrimination against and to empower those with intellectual disabilities. This partnership couldn't be more timely with the impact that COVID-19 is having. With social distancing in full effect, Special Olympics is helping athletes and their families stay active and engaged while their sports are postponed.
