FabFitFun VIP Box Review – Winter 2013
The FabFitFun VIP Box is a quarterly subscription from Giuliana Rancic and the FabFitFun team. Each season they send you a box of $100+ worth items in categories like beauty, fashion and fitness.
FabFitFun kindly sent me this box to review.
The key necklace on the front of this card is their featured item of the box, and the spoiler item they teased a month ago!
The Box: FabFitFun VIP Box
The Cost: $49.99 a box sent every quarter
COUPON: Use coupon code EARLY5 to save $5 off your first box!
The Products: The hottest seasonal items (worth at least $100) selected by Giuliana Rancic and the FabFitFun team
Each box comes with a card detailing all the items included.
The Giving Keys Never Ending Necklace – Value $55
I wasn’t too excited about this necklace when I saw the spoiler, but seeing it in person I like it more.
Each necklace is unique and has a word engraved on one side. From The Giving Keys: “Wear this key and embrace its message until you meet someone who needs the message on the key more than you.”
TruEnergy Inspired Earbuds – Value $40
Simple Foaming Facial Cleanser – Value $7.49
I always enjoy my fitness and healthy subscription boxes as a fun reminder to workout and be healthy, so I like that FabFitFun always includes fitness items like these earbuds designed for activity. (Also, the card lists this cleanser as a bonus item – some of the team’s favorite drugstore finds).
Me Undies $20 Gift Card – Value $20
I’m always super skeptical when I see “gift cards” in subscription boxes . (Often they turn out to be coupon codes, and require you to spend money). Fortunately this card doesn’t require you to spend any money, but it is a unique coupon code and not technically a gift card.
I just tested it out and made a purchase. I bought two pair of socks for $10 each, and applied the code in the coupon code field in the cart. It deducted $20 making the socks free, and shipping was free. I was charged $0 for the order, but I did still have to enter my credit card info.
I like the quality of Me Undies products (check out my Me Undies reviews), so I’m very happy with this addition to the box!
NYX Eye Shadow Palette in Love in Florence – Value $8
Beauty For Real Lip Gloss in Don’t Stop – Value $22
I swear NYX is in almost every subscription box lately! (This was another bonus item – the other drugstore favorite from the FabFitFun Team).
And the lipgloss lights up and has a mirror attached! (I don’t know when I’l need to apply lipgloss in the dark, but it’s interesting!)
Lorna Jane Workout Bracelet – Value $30
This rubber bracelet is a little too intense for me, and I definitely don’t like wearing any accessories when I’m working out, so I’ll be putting this in the gift pile. (Or maybe the future swap section!)
This workout brand is completely new to me, and I really like the design of their clothes. (It reminds me a little of Victoria’s Secret Pink Workout line). They included a 20% off coupon for FabFitFun subscribers, so I may try it out!
Bioxidea Miracle 24 Mask – Value $19
Skyn Iceland Icelandic Relief Eye Cream – Value $45
I cannot wait to try this eye cream – it’s free of parabens, petroleum, mineral oil, sulfates, phthalates, synthetic fragrance and synthetic dye!
Physique 57 Workout Classes (5) – Value $25
I don’t know why, but playing workout videos on my laptop always seems weird. It looks like these videos should work on my tablet too, so I think I’ll try that!
Verdict: This box has a value of over $250 – not bad! I think right now I’m most excited about the Skyn eye cream, but who knows – maybe Physique 57 workouts will become a new favorite!
What do you think of the Winter FabFitFun VIP box?
