FabFitFun switched from an info sheet to a mini mag with the fall box, and I love the change. Here are some of the pages:
And there is also an info card for the items included:
On to the items:
FRENDS The Donna Earbuds (Value $80)
Here are the variants for the earbuds:
Here are the earbuds up close:
I know the FRENDS brand makes pricey earbuds and headphones, so I wasn’t too surprised by the listed retail value on these. (For example, these Earbuds from 2014 were originally $100).
As far as quality goes, I was very impressed with the sound. (The button on the cord serves as a play/pause button). I even had my husband Eric try them since he’s much more obsessed with sound quality than I am and he was surprised by how good they sounded.
From Eric, “They produced a good bass and the sound wasn’t tinny like most earbuds I’ve used.”
Wren Heart Pendant – Value $100
There are a few variations of this necklace: moon, heart, or horse shoe, in either gold or rose gold. The necklace is 14Kt gold dipped yellow gold, with 1pt black sapphire stone. It’s 18 inches long, with 2 inches in extender chain, and it is made in the USA too!
Here is a closer look:
I’m all about delicate gold jewelry, so this one is perfect for me!
Zoya Polish in Carey – Value $10
(Subscribers will receive this color or Avril)
I love the Zoya polish formula, and I think both of the shades options for this box are perfect for Spring!
Passport to Beauty Tibetan Goji Berry Eye Serum – Value $88
The eye serum is a lightweight gel/cream. And yay – it is unscented! (No parabens either!). I used up this serum when it was originally featured in the Winter 2014 box, and I’m happy to have more. The formula is gentle even on my dry winter skin. It does have retinol in it though, so something to keep in mind if you have very sensitive skin, or plan on being outside in direct sunlight.
FabFitFun X CosmoBody Jump Rope – Value $14
It wouldn’t be a FabFitFun box without a “Fit” item, and I think this is a practical one – and it doesn’t take up too much of the value of the box. (CosmoBody also released some workout videos featuring jump ropes to coincide with this box).
Gorge I’ll Make You Look Amazing Daily Spray – Value $29.95
This is one of my favorite FabFitFun discoveries! It is a “does it all” leave-in conditioner hair product – it detangles, adds shine, repairs, creates silky hair, etc. The formula is lightweight, and it has the best beachy scent!
I love that FabFitFun included this gift card in the box. Here it is open:
And extra good news: no credit card required to use this if your order is under $25. (And! There’s no mention of FabFitFun on the gift card itself – so if you wanted to gift it, it doesn’t look like it came from a subscription box).
Organic Valley Organic Balance Milk Protein Shake – Value $2.99
I avoid dairy in my diet, but I was surprised to see this is actually lactose free! It has 16 grams of protein in a bottle, but the sugar content is sort of high too: 23 grams.
Verdict: I think this is a great Welcome Box from FabFitFun! For one thing, I love the branding of the box and the magazine. This is not a random box of items – a lot of thought and work went into putting these Welcome Boxes together!
And as always with FabFitFun boxes, the retail value is seriously impressive – $350! (and even more amazing for a $40 box if you sign up with the MSA10 coupon).
