D.L. & Co Candle in Bergamot Woods – Value $44
Subscribers will either receive the Bergamot Woods scent in Silver or the Blackberry Nectar scent in Gold.
This candle comes packaged in a black box with embossed silver foil text – it’s perfect for gifting!
The metallic design on the exterior of the candle has gaps so it casts a really pretty glow went lit:
And here it is in hand to give you a better sense of scale:
The Bergamot Woods scent is subtle, lovely, and perfect for winter!
Gorjana Taner Toggle Lariat Necklace in Gold – Value $75
(Subscribers will either receive this necklace or the silver Kiernan Double Pendant Necklace.)
I love delicate gold jewelry, so this piece is great for me.
(You can also loop it through a second time if you want to make sure it doesn’t move around at all.)
I love how it drapes without any looping around, though!
This necklace also came with a coupon for $20 off any full-price purchase from Gorjana. (Expires 5.15.17)
Here it is on:
Marie Mae Thank You Card Set – Value $24
This thank you note set is an exclusive for FabFitFun subscribers. Here is more about the Marie Mae company:
Each item purchased equals one hour of training at the Marie Mae Business School.
The Marie Mae Business School includes classes and training for entrepreneurs each year in an emerging market – such as Rwanda, where we hosted the inaugural Marie Mae Business School in 2015.
Armed with practical business skills – like public speaking, business planning, market research and contract negotiation – these individuals improve not only the quality of life for themselves and their families but that of their communities.
I love that FabFitFun works with companies that give back!
This set includes 10 cards and matching envelopes.
The back of the card is blank with a blue edge, and the front is a goregous Cheers:
The design is a navy blue dot with a gold foil embossed Cheers.
These are made on quality cardstock, and seem perfect for so many occasions!
Moleskine Weekly Notebook Diary/Planner – Value $20.95
I love that FabFitFun included a planner in the winter box!
(Subscribers will either receive this purple version or a teal version.)
There are calendar view pages:
And pages for each individual week:
And don’t forget to check the folder in the back for stickers:
This is another item in the box that would be a lovely gift if you are willing to part with it!
Now, onto the beauty items!
This mascara has an applicator ball at the end to help catching all lashes:
This formula is a bold black, and it adds signicant length and doesn’t clump. I wish the volume and lash-defining was a little better, but I still give this mascara a B+.
O.R.G. Skincare Mineral Peel Face – Value $44
I first discovered this product in the Summer 2015 Rachel Zoe Box of Style!
This product is designed to exfoliate your skin in less than a minute. You spray it on, let it sit for 3-5 seconds, then use a washcloth to gently exfoliate, and then rinse off.
I love that this is a super-quick use skincare product! The natural scent is fabulous too! And the best part? You get instant results! My skin felt smoother instantly! (And no irritation – this is a perfect peel for anyone with sensitive skin.)
(Subscribers will receive either Winter in Manhattan Beach or Sicilian Tangerine.)
This body cream is made in the USA, and free of parabens, petroleum and artificial colors! It’s also a rich and hydrating cream without being greasy – perfect for winter weather! (And the white jasmine scent is nice, too.)
And with every box, FabFitFun partners with a charity to raise awareness. For the Winter Box, they’ve partnered with the Starlight Children’s Foundation. Instructions from FabFitFun on raising awareness:
- Take a photo with your pin
- Post it on Instagram and tag @fabfitfun and @starlightchildrensfoundation
- In the caption, share your holiday wish with hashtag #wishuponastar, #fabfitfun, and #starlightchildrensfoundation
More on this foundation:
Starlight brings happiness to critically, chronically and terminally ill children. We believe that every child deserves to experience the excitement, wonder and joy of childhood – because a sick kid is still a kid at heart. Starlight offers programs that provide entertainment, education and innovative technology to hospitalized children and their families. Founded in 1982, Starlight is an award-winning 501(c)3 nonprofit that supports children and families in the US, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom.
Verdict: This box has a value of $253! This is one of those boxes that always has me asking “How do they do it?” This value is incredible, and the brand selection is fabulous too. I think the mix of 3 lifestyle items, 3 beauty items, and 1 fashion item is a great balance. (I was surprised to see no fitness-related items in this box, though.) Plus almost everything is giftable on its own, or the entire box would make an amazing gift! (For december boxes, I’m always giving them an extra criteria of “Can I gift this?)
