Fabfitfun VIP Summer 2015 Review and $10 Off Coupon Code!

FabFitFun VIP box is packed with so much good stuff! I was worried I wasn't getting one because this took so long to ship but it's here and I'm really happy with my variations! This box is quarterly and so they're geared to each season. The summer boxes always tend to be pretty awesome for me. I don't know why that is since here in Seattle we barely have a summer. Although, I will tell you right now that it has been hotter this summer than any summer in the past 20 years and we're dying.
The Summer 2015
This box has a value of over $250! And it has jewelry which is always fun. They always include an information card that explains each item and gives the value, so you know where they're getting their values.

The Cost: $49.95/quarterly

What You Get: The latest and greatest full size products in food, beauty and lifestyle categories with a total value of more than $200.

Wren 14k Gold and Black Sapphire Necklace- There were several options and I got the rose-gold horseshoe. I'm totally okay with that! These are gold plated and have a teeny tiny black sapphire embedded in them. So pretty! I love this, it's so dainty and perfect.
Value: $100
The Everyday Wireless Speaker by Fabfitfun- Now, I'm not going to say that this is the pinnacle of technology but it's decent. Decent enough to use but not so amazing that you'll care too much if you accidentally leave it somewhere or it gets eaten by a shark or hungry party-goer.
Value: $29.99

Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothing Spray Moisturizer- Can I tell you how happy I am to get this? It's almost the main thing I was excited about when I first saw the whole box contents. And it's like $8! Which is good in case I want more. This is actually a sponsored item and doesn't count toward the value of the box. I cannot WAIT to get out and use this. If I hadn't just used up another body moisturizer, I would already be spraying this on.
Value: $8
Inkling Scents Sultry Roll-On Oil Perfume- This is a very nice roll on bottle of perfume. It has no alcohol and uses oils to tantalize your nose. This has scents of sandalwood, amber, lotus, orchid, rose and vanilla. Sultry is a pretty good name for this one. I'm almost not sure I like it but there's something about it...
Value: $25

Headspace 3-month Subscription- Eh, not something I would use but it looks like it's no strings attached (and by that I mean no credit card info required) which is a big plus for me. This subscription is for guided meditations.
Value: $38.85
Gorge "I'll Make You Look Amazing" Daily Spray- This is a leave in conditioner. Woo. I'm so terrible, I know, and I don't know why I hate getting hair stuff so much. Some of it has been really nice! This will smooth your hair, eliminate frizz, restore incredible shine and enhance your natural body. It is the best nourishing treatment you can find and will leave your hair soft and bouncy, ready to be styled any way you want. It works with all hair types to bring out it’s natural luster. It's basically magic.
Value: $24.95

Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss in Natural Beauty- Mine is a sheer, shimmery red. I don't really do well with reds so I think I will see if I can swap for a pinker version. Each ultra-hydrating, vanilla flavored lip gloss imparts natural-looking color to enhance your complexion while drenching lips in moisture and mega-watt, non-sticky shine. Infused with vitamin E and jojoba seed oil.
All that makes me want to try it anyway!
Value: $19
Fabfitfun x Cosmobody Jump Rope- Another FabFitFun production. Nothing wrong with getting a jumprope (unless you'd rather die than use one). Personally I like it better than the stability ball but mainly because my dog got a hold of that and popped it. He was pretty happy with himself. I wasn't too thrilled with him.
Value: $14

Scratch Nail Wraps- I've never used nail wraps. I feel like I should but these are kind of ugly. I think I need to look up tips and tricks to making these look right before I accidentally waste them.
Value: $12

Hello Konjac Cleansing Sponge- These are super popular right now and if you've never used one, you should. Even just for the experience of it. I still cannot believe how soft these things get when they're wet. Especially compared to their hard crunchy dry state. Also, I noticed that the info card says this will adjust your pH. It won't.
Value: $12

VERDICT: I really do like FabFitFun. I feel like if you don't want to do a monthly Popsugar Must Have box, this is the one you should go for that's the most similar. Except it's only four times a year so you save some money. This box always has full size products which is pretty awesome and the value is always well over $200. So it's worth it, especially if you really want a box of fun goodies dropped off at your door four times a year.

If you would like to try FabFitFun, you can sign up here. Make sure to use code SAVE10 to get $10 off OR I think theres also an option for you to use JULY4 to get a free Fabfitfun water infuser bottle and some Purlisse moisturizer. I will warn you, though, that the infuser bottle is crap. Mine broke the first time I used it. It's cheap, crappy plastic.

If you sign up now, you will get this exact box. Well, with variations on the color of the speaker (you could get pink or teal), the necklace can be gold or rose-gold and can be a horseshoe, half-moon or heart. Oh, and you might get a different color of Tarte LipSurgence although I'm not sure what the variations are.

  1. Ahhh you got the teal speaker! (I think I'm seeing more of those in the second wave of shipping) And yay for not getting the heart necklace. ;) But Headspace is AWESOME. I've been using it every night before I go to sleep and it's honestly so relaxing.

    1. Yah you wanna switch?! I don't care about the color.

  2. About Headspace- I haven't used the card yet, but YEARS ago, I had guided relaxation imagery tapes. (cassette tapes, so mid-80's I guess). I've always had a problem with both insomnia and nightmares, and this type of relaxation process was extremely beneficial to me. I'm going to try the Headspace, because I do believe I know good guided meditation/ relaxation from not-so-good.

    I got a gorgeous deep pink lip gloss, really the lightest Marsala color.
    My speaker is pink- yay.
    And my necklace is yellow gold and is the heart, and I love it. What's wrong with hearts? :)

    I loved everything in the box- the perfume, the Aloe spray, the jump rope, all of it.
    I think this box stands up to PSMH this time around. :)

    1. You got great variations! That lip gloss sounds perfect! I think I would have rathered yellow gold but I'm okay with the rose gold, it's very pretty. As for hearts, I have no idea but I have never liked them in my jewelry. Ever. Even when I was fifteen, I always hated hearts. :D

      Maybe I'll try the Headspace. Since I just got the Calmbox, it was a little like "oh, I just got all this" and that's probably where most of the "meh" attitude came from. I visited it and was actually impressed with the website. You know how sometimes they can be so hokey but this was very nice. Crisp and clean.

  3. I just saw a spoiler that the "Gorge" is going to be in Boxycharm (which I have a sub for, and I don't sub to FFF) - and I'm happy to try anything to help my summer frizz!

    I was considering FFF for the Gorge, the speaker and the Vaseline Aloe smoothing spray. (I would also use the Konjac sponge when my current one gets yucky and I'd try the jump rope...) but since I'm getting the Gorge now and I can buy the Vaseline easily enough myself, I think I'll pass.

    Great review as always!

    1. Boxycharm is really doing so well with their products. Did you get the Eslor mask? Did you try it? I'm still trying to trade for it because it looked so interesting!

      And yes, find the Vaseline. I love it! It is so refreshing and I love the smell :D
