Now, time for the items!
Michael Stars Ruana – Value $54
This Ruana is a multi-use product that can work as a scarf, sarong, or wrap! It measures 41″ x 72″and it is 100% Viscose.
The fabric is super soft, lightweight, and a touch sheer – it’s a perfect warm weather material.
Here it is on as a wrap:
If you are an annual subscriber, you were able to select your Ruana print. If you’re a quarterly subscriber, you’ll be surprised by which print you receive. Here are the two other fabrics you may receive:
The Ruana takes up very little space, so it is great for summer travel packing!
Here is this one worn as a scarf:
And here is the blue print:
Here, I styled it as a sarong (ignore the over-jeans part!):
You know how some multi-use products can be complicated to use and get the look exactly right? This Ruana isn’t like that at all – I didn’t even need to look in a mirror for any of these looks.
Kris Nations Mystic Bar Necklace – Value $58
First, I love this glass bottle packaging! So cute!
This necklace has an adjustable length 16-18 inches:
The gemstone bar measures about 0.75″
This necklace is gold-filled, and it’s one of three options you may receive. Here are the other two colors:
This peach gemstone version:
And this sterling silver chain version:
Again, if you are an annual subscriber, you were able to select your necklace. If you’re a quarterly subscriber, you’ll be surprised by which necklace you receive.
On to the last color choice option!
BKR Bottle in Rosie – Value $35
(Subscribers will receive this bottle in this Rosie Pink shade or the Romeo Blue Shade.)
I have a few of these BKR bottles, and I love them! They are dishwasher safe, and the silicone is BPA and phthalate free, too.
These bright colors are so fun for summer, too!
And if you are an annual subscriber, you were able to select your bottle color. If you’re a quarterly subscriber, you’ll be surprised by which color you receive.
Here is the other color:
Juice Beauty Smoothing Eye Concentrate – Value $29
If you’ve read my reviews before, you might already know that I love the Juice Beauty brand! Their formulas are super ingredient conscious (organic + natural ingredients only), and most of the product have this subtle green apple scent!
This eye concentrate serum is one of my favorite Juice Beauty products I’ve sampled yet! It’s so gentle and creamy! The formula is very hydrating and it absorbed quickly into my skin, too.
Wow! Even though I saw that this product is described as “fast absorbing” with a “matte finish,” I couldn’t believe how quickly this formula transitioned into a matte finish as I rubbed it in!
The formula is fragrance, paraben, and oil free, too! It has a completely sheer finish, and it works great under makeup!
Cargo HD Picture Perfect Highlighter in Bronze – Value $30
The first thing I noticed when trying this highlighter out is just how silky the formula feels! The pigment concentration is excellent, and the shimmer is super fine – no worries about getting a glitter look!
It is super blendable, too. Here it is swatched:
Next up, all subscribers got the option to pick a mystery fitness item or a beauty item. Here is the fitness item:
Way of Will Post Training Massage Oil – Value $29.50
This brand is new to me, but as soon as I saw 100% natural ingredients, I had a feeling I would be a fan!
It’s meant to be used as a post-workout massage oil. The scent is a blend of Peppermint Essential Oil, German Chamomile Essential Oil, and Lemongrass Essential Oil.
I love the idea of using this as a post-workout treat. It smells so good! I’ll probably use it after showers, too.
And here is the alternative mystery beauty product. (You’ll receive one or the other):
Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk – Value $20
This dry shampoo is formulated without parabens or sulfates, and it is great for both absorbing oil and also adding texture and volume.
I used to only use dry shampoo on days when my hair was looking a little greasy. But now I use it every day for extra volume and texture. (And thanks to subscription boxes, I have plenty of dry shampoo to support this daily habit!)
And we have one more choice item! All subscribers were able to pick between a traveler, artist or chef item!
Here is the chef item:
Salted Himalayan Pink Salt Kit – Value $26
How beautiful is this set? It’s one of those items I’ll gladly display on my kitchen counter.
You use the grater to produce salt flakes that are great for finishing a dish. Giada De Laurentiis even included 3 recipes to try this with in the info booklet:
- Pan Roasted Asparagus with Crispy Fried Egg
- S’Mores Popcorn
Here is the traveler mystery item (again, you’ll only receive one of these in your box):
Understated Leather Travel Set – Value $28
This set includes a luggage tag and passport holder in vegan leather.
Both pieces are well made, and the on-trend rose gold is gorgeous.
And here is the artist mystery item:
Amy Tangerine Art Kit – Value $22
This set includes a canvas (8X10 inches), stencil, acrylic paints, paint brush, and foam stamper:
I think this is such a fun DIY item to include, but if you are a serious artist, you might be disappointed in the quality of the paints/brushes.
(Amy Tangerine also includes tips for beginners on using this kit. And an idea for throwing an art party!)
Vital Proteins Marine Collagen Sample – Value $2.50
(This collagen sample is an extra in the box that doesn’t count toward the total value of the box for subscribers.)
I’ve been taking collagen powder daily for months now, and I’ve got some of my extended family hooked on it, too! (I’ve personally noticed an improvement in my skin and nails. My husband Eric noticed and improvement in his joints, and nail growth, too.)
Eric uses collagen in his coffee. (This will absorb in either hot or cold liquid.) Most people say they can’t taste the collagen when added to liquid, but I can! So I blend this into a smoothie that masks the flavor.
Verdict: Depending on the variations you receive, this box has a value of $272 to $287.50 (And that’s not counting any value for the FabFitFun TV channel access, or the bonus collagen.) As always, I find myself saying, “I don’t know how they do it!”
I’m so impressed with the high-end beauty brands FabFitFun is including lately. The Avene sunscreen, Cargo Highlighter, and Juice Beauty eye serum are all great quality items that are perfect for summer. And both the massage oil and dry shampoo options are fab, too.
I love all the Ruana prints, and the item is super versatile. (And delicate gold jewelry is always a win for me!) Oh! And the BKR bottle is great for summer, too! If you are going on a summer vacation, I hope you get this box before you leave!
What do you think of the Summer 2017 FabFitFun box? How do you feel about the mystery choice options this season?
