Now, time for the items!
This is one of my favorite subscription box beauty discoveries!
If you aren’t familiar with Spongelle, you are in for a treat! It infused with body wash, and the sponge is firmer than your typical bath pouf, so you get exfoliation added in, as well! (And it should last for at least 14 uses!)
Whish Nourishing Dew Mask – Retail Value $54
This ingredient-conscious brand is: Leaping Bunny certified. Paraben free. Sulfate free. DEA and TEA free. Petrochemical free. Phthalate free. Naturally sourced with organic goodness. Made in the USA. Yay!
And the mask felt lovely on my skin. I’ve been in need of all the hydration I can get thanks to the super cold weather we’ve been having lately – our heater is running nonstop. The directions for this mask don’t indicate how long to leave it on for, but I kept it on for an entire evening (it mostly absorbs after a minute), then rinsed it off before bed. My skin definitely felt more moisturized and plump after removing it.
Way Of Will Bath Salts – Retail Value $35
These bath salts are made with 100% natural ingredients:
Himalayan Salt, Essential oil – Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Oil, Piper Nigrum (Black Pepper) Seed Oil, Pogostemon Cablin (Patchouli) Oil, Cedrus atlantica (Cedarwood) Oil, Cananga Odorata (Ylang Ylang) Oil
The salts are designed to help stimulate circulation and soothe sore muscles, plus I love the natural scent.
Real Her Playbook II Shadow Palette – Retail Value $28
Good to know: all Real Her products are free of parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, gluten, and phthalates!
This set includes a mix of satins, shimmers, and mattes. The pigment is good on all shades but especially impressive on the shimmers.
Here they are swatched:
MakeupDrop Original – Retail Value $20
I received this in a few other subscription boxes and I am a huge fan! Typically, I use a beauty blender or a stippling brush to apply liquid foundation. This silicone applicator gets the same flawless application look of the beauty blender, but it has additional benefits:
- No foundation absorbing into it! With a Beauty Blender or brush, I’m always losing some foundation to the tool itself, but this silicone isn’t porous, so all makeup goes on your skin!
- Super easy cleanup! Just soap, water, and towel it off and it’s good to go! No waiting for beauty blenders/brushes to dry!
OK, that wraps up the items that will be in all boxes. Now, time for your customized choice options. After you subscribe, you will have the option to go into your FabFitFun account and pick your choice of Fashion, Jewelry, and Wellness items.
Here is the fashion item in this box:
BB Dakota Poncho in Black – Retail Value $70
(You can pick this poncho or the Mer-Sea & Co. Scarf in Grey or Blush.)
(If you pick this item you’ll receive it in the black shown here, or a lighter grey.)
This poncho is open in the front and drapes beautifully.
Here are the care instructions: Machine wash cold, no tumble dry, ironing OK on delicate setting, dry cleaning OK.
(The fabric is 65% acrylic, 35% polyester.)
It features a blanket stitch edge and just like a blanket, it’s super soft and cozy! (Perfect to keep at a chilly office!)
And, it is reversible!
Here’s a better idea of the size of the poncho:
(And you can see the little tag you might want to remove on the reverse side.)
Here is the jewelry item in this box:
Summer & Rose Bar Chain Earrings in Rose – Retail Value $38
(You can pick these earrings or the Summer & Rose Double Bar Necklace in Silver.)
These delicate earrings measure 2.5 inches long. I think they are the perfect dangly earrings for someone who appreciates minimalist jewelry design.
Here is the fitness item in this box:
Private Party Gym Bag – Retail Value $59
(You can pick these earrings or the African Botanics Revitalizing Therapy Gel.)
This bag is denim with cotton straps, an outer zip pocket, and measures about 20 inches long.
Here is the bag on to give you a better sense of scale:
(You’ll receive one of three different phrases on the bag.)
Verdict: This box has a retail value of $320! I think this is a fabulous Editor’s Box – they included some of the most popular items from past boxes and some brand new items, too. It’s a good mix! And I love that they are letting new subscribers customize their first box! (Once you are a subscriber, you’ll have the option to pick some of your items every season, and if you are an annual subscriber, you’ll be able to pick your color choices for some items, too.)
