FabFitFun VIP Box Summer 2014 Subscription Review & Coupon
The FabFitFun VIP Box is a quarterly subscription from FabFitFun.com. Each season they send you a box of $100+ worth items in categories like beauty, fashion and fitness. (Has anyone else noticed that Giuliana Rancic is no longer anywhere on the FabFitFun site?)
FYI – The Summer box is still available for purchase as of 7/3!
The Box: FabFitFun VIP Box
The Cost: $49.99 a box sent every quarter
COUPON: Use coupon code FLASH10 to save $10 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 fold out card detailing all the items included.
Sonia Dakar Flash Facial – Value $99
Pur-lisse SPF 30 Sunscreen – Value $55
I’ve used both of these products before and really like both of them, so I knew these products alone would make the cost of the box worth it to me. (I never seem to have enough SPF!)
Balanced Guru No Frizz Oil – Value $25
I’m so used to getting tiny oil samples in subscription boxes, so I was thrilled to see a full-sized organic hair oil in this box. It has a nice lemongrass scent, and when I tried it on my dry hair it definitely helped with frizziness, but also weighed it down a little bit. I’m thinking I will have better results applying a lesser amount to damp hair.
FabFitFun Water Infuser BPA-free Water Bottle – Value $15
I have quite a few of these infuser bottles thanks to subscription boxes, but I really like the design of this one since the cap completely covers the area where you put your mouth. (I’m really particular about water bottles). Now I just need to find out if it is dishwasher safe!
Thursday Friday Mini Clutch/ Makeup Bag – Value $35
This item had variations, and I can’t believe I actually received the print I wanted! It’s a well-made little bag, and it also came with a $30 off Thursday Friday gift code.
KissStix Lip Balm Set – Value $6
Zoya Nail Polish in Maya – Value $9
I remember seeing KissStix on Shark Tank a few years ago and thinking it was a product for teens (I could be wrong), but I gave it a try. I think the raspberry and lemonade flavors compliment each other well, but the flavors were a little too intense for me!
I am really happy about this Zoya nail polish though – I love their formula, and this is a fun neon summer color!
POPchips – Value $1.29
These aren’t too exciting since they’ve been around for a while, but I love POPchips and ate these almost immediately, so no complaints!
Sponsored Items: Skintimate Shave Gel, Slimfast Have Your Cake Meal Bar, and Always Xtra Protection Long Daily Liners
This is the first time FabFitFun has had items on their card listed as “Sponsored.” I’m guessing that means these companies paid FabFitFun to be in the box. I have no problem with that if it means FabFitFun has more money to spend on featured items for the box. I think they may benefit from putting these sponsored items in a separate bonus item bag like New Beauty Test Tube does though, since sometimes having freebies in a box can make a box feel cheaper – if that makes sense?
Verdict: Aside from the KissStix and the sponsored items, I will use every single item in this box – so it was definitely worth the $49.99 I paid. I think my only complaint would be that I would have liked to see more items in the Fitness category. What did you think of the Summer FabFitFun VIP box?
