Fabfitfun 2016 Summer Subscription Box Review

Fabfitfun 2016 Summer Box

I did something bad guys…I signed up for another subscription. I’ve been watching Fabfitfun unboxings for a while now and when I found a coupon for Memorial Weekend (which if I’m being honest I know next to nothing about, it’s not a Canadian holiday) that gave me two extra items in my box I couldn’t say no! Lo and Behold the Fabfitfun 2016 Summer box has made it to my door.

This is my first lifestyle subscription. I’ve mostly subscribe to beauty boxes and the occasional tea box, but I’ve been wanting to branch out and try a lifestyle box. Each Fabfitfun box has at least one fitness themed item included which I was really looking forward to as fitness is an important part of my life.

Fabfitfun 2016 Summer Box

Seriously, how cute is the summer box!?!? It actually came inside a bigger box which my cat quickly laid his claim to…

Each box comes with a cute little magazine detailing the products and brands and filled with tips on how to use them.

Fabfitfun 2016 Summer Unboxing with Cat

I had a little unboxing helper!

Fabfitfun 2016 Summer Box Tote

Trina Turk Tote $55
I saw two spoilers for the box prior to subscribing. The first was this Trina Turk Tote bag. I believe that this was made specifically for FabFitFun as I can’t find it anywhere on the website. $55 seems like stretch for a tote bag, but all of Trina Turk’s bags look expensive. This tote is huge, the cat even fits inside it! Subscribers either received a tote in yellow, blue, or orange.

Fabfitfun 2016 Summer Box Yoga Towel

Dream Big Summer & Rose Yoga Towel -$36
I was very happy with this spoiler. I workout at home with a yoga mat and have been thinking about trying out a yoga class but I didn’t want to have to rent a towel. PROBLEM SOLVED! This is Fabfitfun’s own brand and although I’m happy with this item I find the price tag a little hard to believe. Subscribers either got the towel in pink, orange, or baby blue. I was hoping for Orange!!

Fabfitfun 2016 Summer Box Betchcicle mold

Betchsicles Ice Pop Molds $19
Here’s another Collab with Fabfitfun that you won’t find anywhere else. Made by Betches, these are perfect for making cold treats on hot summer days. I was considering ordering some popsicle trays from Amazon so these are perfect! I wish they were a little bigger but they’re so cute!

Fabfitfun 2016 Summer Box Skincare

Stemulation Daily Microderm Scrub $34
This is a huge bottle! It smells citrusy and the granules are small enough that the exfoliation is gentle, not harsh.

Passport to Beauty Lipgloss in Flower Child $18
This lipgloss came in three different shades. I’m not really a fan of lipgloss to be honest and I found this one to be rather sticky. Other subscribers have said it’s very lightweight and not at all sticky so I don’t know why this feels so thick to me. I’ll probably throw this in my beach bag when I’m camping next week as it’s not something I would worry about losing on a trip.

Fabfitfun 2016 Summer Box Hair & Skincare

FabFitFun Everyday Beach Waves Spray $18
Words can’t even describe how excited I was over this!! I was seeing salt sprays everywhere and I really wanted to try one. This is a perfect edition to the summer box, it has a lasting ocean salt smell and light hold for easy beach wave styling. It was a little weird to get so many FabFitFun branded items but I’m not complaining about this one.

Osea Atmosphere Protection Cream $48
This is a natural product formulated to be a barrier from environmental damage. It says to apply under sunscreen or makeup so I’ll still need some SPF for this summer. It’s lightweight and will get used on days when I’m not planning to be outside much. This cream is supposed to work as a moisturizer and primer.

Fabfitfun 2016 Summer Box Freebies

These are the extras I received from my Memorial Day Coupon

Fruit Infuser Water bottle $14.99
I know this is an item from a previous box and FabFitFun must have a ton of them, but I only have one functional water bottle and I’ve been wanting to try a diffuser for a while. I’ve been using this for a few days and it works pretty well! My go to right now is peaches and watermelon, and next time I go grocery shopping I want to try cucumber and mint.

Pur~lisse SPF Moisturizer $55 ($15)
I find it a bit crazy that this 1.7oz moisturizer is $55, but the Fabfitfun shop has it on sale for $15. It’s such a small bottle, I would never ever pay full price for a tiny bottle like this! I have tried the Pur~lisse 4 in 1 blue lotus eye serum and liked it so I’m hoping for good results with this moisturizer. I recently ran out of my Arbonne SPF moisturizer and have been wanting to try out some new products.

Sponsored Items

Sponsored Item: Burts Bees BB Cream and Compeed Instant Blister Relief
FFF likes to include sponsored items in every box as an extra. These are not included in the overall value of the box. I’ll try out the BB bream, and I’m sure the blister patches will come in handy at some point. I like that the sponsored items fit the Summer theme of the box.

Final Thoughts

I’m thrilled with Fabfitfun! I’ll use everything, including the sponsored items. The Value of the box is over $200USD as promised. One of the things I love about subscriptions is getting to try things I never would have gone out and purchased for myself. And let’s face it, who doesn’t want a fabulous box delivered every three months!? I’m loving it!

    I am sooooo happy with the summer box! I usually like my boxes in general but find there’s 1-2 products I won’t use. EVERY thing in this box will get used by me! Like you said, even the sponsored items!! I have a yearly sub and thought I wouldn’t resubscribe because it’s expensive but I’m pretty sure I want to stay subscribed now!

      I don’t think I will ever be able to unsubscribe from this box now!! I’ve already used just about everything and I’ve only had it for a few weeks! The value is incredible even with the exchange rate 🙂 I hope the Fall box is just as awesome

    I sibscribed for the first time for the Memorial Day special as well! I tried the Purlisse SPF moisturizer through Topbox and loved it and am now obsessed enough to order the box for it. I used it while I was in Florida in March and the SPF moisturizer held and worked very well on my sensitive skin. I now have the cleanser and regular moisturizer and love it. I really loved the Purlisse sheet mask in last months Top Box as well. Enjoy all your new products from Fab Fit Fun!

      It was such a good deal! I hope you loved your box as well 🙂
      I haven’t tried the SPF yet but I’m excited to use it once I finish my current moisturizer. The Cleanser is $15 in the Fabfitfun shop right now so I’m debating picking it up. Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment!! 🙂

    You’ve got amazing products there!

    P.s. Your cat is too cute! 🙂

      I’m so excited about everything! Haha thanks! He gets into a lot of mischief 🙂

    • June 28, 2016 / 5:54 pm

      Thank you!! 🙂 It’s a great box

    I SO need to sign up for this box!! It’s one I have yet to cave to yet lol.

    • June 28, 2016 / 10:05 am

      I was really impressed with it, It’s a bit more expensive but so worth it! I think you can still get the summer box
