The FabFitFun for Him Summer 2019 Review
FabFitFun sent along a card with product info and listed retail values for each of the included items.
Let’s see what is inside!
Salt + Stone Stick SPF50, 15 g – Retail Value $18.00
Praise be! A sunscreen that my husband might actually use! This small container houses a slightly tinted sunscreen stick that goes on feather-light and leaves no shiny or greasy finish. It is pretty small but should last a good long while, and that petite size makes it perfect for a pocket or work bag. It has a barely there masculine scent and though it does have a tint, it went on my skin totally clear.
Grown Alchemist Hydra-Repair Day Cream, 2.19 fl oz – Retail Value $49.00
This is a product that was featured on GOOP, and if its good enough for Gwyneth, its good enough for me. I say ‘me’ because I am stealing this out of the box before my husband even notices. You might call me selfish, but you haven’t smelled how lovely this cream is! It has an irresistible botanical fragrance that Will likely wouldn’t be as into anyways and my face was so calm and smooth after trying this. It is a perfect day cream for my foundation free face. Sorry, not sorry!
PX Clothing Wallet – Retail Value $40.00
This was the one item in the box that I really didn’t like. I tend to avoid pleather and would much rather have had a textile option sent if this box was set on avoiding real leather. It might have been nice to see some sort of heavy duck canvas option instead. It just felt kind of flimsy and inexpensive. Visually, I will admit that it could pass for leather, but the second you touch it you absolutely know it is faux.
Fatboy Sea Salt Pomade, 2.6 oz – Retail Value $21.00
Will loves pomades and he has naturally wavy hair. I was really excited to have him test out this sea salt pomade, especially since I love salt texturizers in my own hair. This stuff smells pretty incredible, beachy but not in a coconut, sunscreen way, but more in a fresh water, salt, greens sort of way. The finish is flexible and matte. Will found it easy to use and remarked that he liked the tousled look it gave his hair.
Rebels Refinery Pre Shave Oil, 30 ml – Retail Value $18.00
Another great smelling item! This oil can be used in a few different ways. The most obvious is as beard oil, to keep those coarse hairs conditioned and looking healthy. Will isn’t allowed to have facial hair at his job (which is a CRIME I tell you!) so he tried it out as a preshave oil on his face. He reported that it gave him a much closer shave and that his skin was less irritated when he finished. With jojoba oil and vitamin E, this formula is super soft on skin while still looking badass. I also borrowed a little to try on my dry hair and it worked like a charm to smooth flyaways and frizz.
Brouk & Co. The Lighter Fix-It Set – Retail Value $39.99 (currently sold out)
This is Will’s sort of gadget. He loved multi-tools and has them stashed all over the house. He especially loves any sort of flashlight or lantern, and although our power has only gone out once in the last 6 years, we were more than prepared. Our house was essentially a beacon in the dark! He was pretty happy to add this new toy to his arsenal. If you combined a flashlight and a swiss army knife into one tool, you would have this gadget. One end is a moderately bright light and the other is a combo of scissors, saw blade, screwdriver, fish scaler (?!), bottle opener, and a file. It came with 3 AAA batteries.
Pilot Men’s Complete Castille Soap, 8 fl oz – Retail Value $17.95
Multi-use items speak to Will’s simple style, so this soap was another winner. You can use it as hand soap, dish soap, shampoo, body wash, anything really. It has a soft peppermint scent that is refreshing and not overwhelming.
Sempli IPA Beer Glass – Estimated Value $27.50 (buy two for $55.00)
This glass is really pretty but SO thin! We have a porcelain sink so I fear for its longevity it is ever set in there without a super gentle hand. The geometric shape is as functional as it is beautiful: the cut of the bottom is meant to enhance the effervescence of your fave IPA. My husband brews beer and I think he might have an IPA in the works, so this will be really fun to try.
Verdict: This box has a retail value of $231.44, which is an excellent value for a $49.99 box. Will seemed to enjoy every item inside, though he agreed that the wallet was lackluster. Will is the type of guy who never really treats himself or buys skincare items, so it felt extra nice to share these items with him and see him enjoy them so much. I (may) have convinced him to start using the sunscreen, and he already has added the pomade and oil to his grooming rotation. The soap was another hit, as well as the multi-tool, which he has decided to stash in his truck. I still hold the expensive day cream hostage, but I feel like that is a fair tradeoff! This box would be great for a special guy in your life and would also make a great box to keep handy for little gifts here and there, especially for those hard to shop for men in your life.
