FabFitFun VIP Box Review & Coupon – Summer Edition

FabFitFun VIP Box Review & Coupon - Summer Edition

The FabFitFun VIP Box is a new quarterly subscription box from FabFitFun and Guilana Rancic. This summer box is their second box so far (check out my Spring FabFitFun VIP box review). This box reminds me of POPSUGAR Must Have a little bit – each box has a lot of full-sized items. (Though it looks like FabFitFun is more of a beauty box, and POPSUGAR has more variety across product categories).

Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes – Value $3

Kind Bar in Maple Glazed Pecan & Sea Salt – Value $1.50

I could get these two items in every single subscription box and never get sick of them! This Kind Bar maple flavor is actually new to me and I loved it. (I think this bar was devoured within minutes of taking this picture). Plus I always keep facial towelettes on my nightstand, and I was close to running out – so having these appearing in my FabFitFun VIP Box was perfect!

It Hair Care Surf Spray – Value $7

Purlisse Delicate Gentle Soy Milk Cleanser – Value $36

I think the item I’m most excited about in the Summer box is this cleanser. It’s supposed to clean your face without stripping your skin of its natural oils, and my favorite part: it’s free of parabens, color, fragrance, and phthalates! Until the Honest Company releases a facial wash, I think I’ll be using Purlisse!

Orly Nail Polish in Mayhem Mentality – Value $8.50

Catalina Su Lip Gloss – Value $14

I just received an Orly polish in the July New Beauty Test Tube and mentioned it was more of a fall shade. Well – this shade from FabFitFun is definitely a bright summer one! I think this is a pedicure only shade for me. We’ll see what it looks like out of the bottle.

Also, this Catalina Su lipgloss is a product from Guilana’s makeup artist: Catalina Su! (I like that that you can tell this box is really curated by Guiliana).

Infinity Sun Glow on the Go Sunless Tanner (Travel Size) – Value $35

Evian Mineral Water Facial Spray - Value $12

I was happy to see that this sunless tanner gets excellent reviews on Amazon. I am confused though by the brand messaging from their site. They state that their products contain “only the most natural ingredients,” but there are three different artificial FD&C colors listed in the ingredients. I know that most sunless tanners contain artificial coloring – so I’m not complaining, I just think the messaging is misleading.

This Evian spray is something I normally wouldn’t splurge on, but now that I have it in my hands – I love it! It’s super light, refreshing and luxurious!

Ivory + Mason Sunglasses – Value $135

These sunglasses are really nice, but they are a little too small for my face! I will be gifting these to a friend.

Verdict: I paid $49.95 for this box and I receieved over $250 worth of product! Even though I won’t use everything, I am definitely happy with the value – I got my money’s worth! What did you think of the July FabFitFun Box? What type of sunglasses did you get?

  3. I loved the spring box so I was really looking forward to this one and I’m semi happy. I tried the sunless tanner and it came out green, but a deep green. Soooo I thought that was weird, haha. The surf spray did nothing to my hair and I use beach spray daily so I know what I’m doing. The sunglasses didn’t fit my face either, but I like the exchange program. I loved that face wash and I’ve been using it everyday since I got the box! I got a Barbie pink nail polish, I like it but I definitely don’t need anymore polish.
