Happy Monday y’all! Guess what time it is!? It’s time for me to share with y’all what came in my Summer FabFitFun Box. As you know, I subscribed to FFF about this time last year with the hopes that it would change my life and bring all kinds of goodies with it. (insert eye roll) But as you can see from my title, sadly, this will be the last FFF box I post about since I have officially unsubscribed 😦 I need to save some money, and let’s face it there are so many other subscriptions out there for me to try instead.
I was super excited when this came in the mail since it’s summer time and my box last summer had some really great things in it. I originally signed up for the yearly subscription, so I knew 3 of the items I would be getting. FFF has also started something new called Choice; you get to choose between words and then based on your selection they send you something that goes with it. This season there were 2 choices.
Ok, so here is what came in my Summer 2017 Box:
Michael Stars Ruana – Retails $54
This was one of the items that I already knew I was getting and was able to pick the pattern that I wanted. This is a limited edition FabFitFun x Joyful Heart Foundation product. This ruana is going to be the star of your beach trips. It is a multi-use item that can be worn as a scarf, sarong, or wrap. It measures 41” x 72”. There were 3 different patterns that you could have chosen for this: black tie die, tan with geometric shapes, or the blue animal print. This is really cute and I can’t wait to take it on vacation with me!
Kris Nations Mystic Bar Necklace – Retails $58
This was the 2nd item that I could pick which color I wanted. The necklace came in turquoise with a gold chain, white with a silver chain, and peach/coral with a gold chain. The stones are hand-cut by craftsmen in India and each one has an attribute that helps your live every day with positive intentions. To be honest, this item was a lot smaller than I thought it would be. The necklace is adjustable and can be 16-18 inches long. The gemstone bar measures at less than an inch long. It came in a little glass bottle (think message in a bottle) and each card in the bottle says something different. I chose to be surprised on this option and received the White Howlite one. The Howlite enhances intuition and promotes calmness. While the necklace is super cute, it’s a little small for my taste and I’m not sure how many times I’ll actually wear it.
BKR Bottle in Rosy Pink – Retails $35
This was the 3rd color option that I got to choose. The options were Rosy Pink or Romeo Blue and with pink being my absolute favorite color, you can guess which one I chose. This is a 16oz/500ML glass bottle with a silicone wrap around them. This Little size is perfect for on-the-go; I can throw it in my work bag and leave the house without feeling like I’m being weighed down! They are dishwasher safe which is a huge plus! This product is perfect for summer and something that I was really looking forward to getting in the box! I’ve been using it since my box came and I love it!
Juice Beauty Smoothing Eye Concentrate – Retails $29
Moisturize and soothe any dark circles and fine lines with this eye cream. It has certified organic grape and carrot juices blended with essential fatty acids to hydrate and nourish the eye area. Normally I’m not a huge fan of putting an extra step into my morning routine, but this is worth it. My eyes feel so refreshed and don’t look like I stayed up WWAAAYYYY past my bedtime the night before. Will I buy this on my own? I’m not sure yet.
Eau Thermale Avene Ultra-Light Hydrating Sunscreen – Retails $24
Protect and nourish your skin with this sheer, lightweight sunscreen. It contains broad spectrum SPF 50+ UVA/UVB filters and is enriched with powerful antioxidant and soothing Avene Thermal Spring Water. The formula is fragrance and oil free. It has a completely sheer finish and is great for under makeup. I used this over 4th of July weekend and it was great; I didn’t even feel like I had any sunscreen on my face and I didn’t get that oily feeling I sometimes get. While $24 is a little on the steep side for sunscreen, if I don’t get burnt using this, it could be worth it.
Cargo Cosmetics Cargo_HD Picture Perfect Highlighter in Bronze – Retails $30
Glow, girl, glow! Formulated for high definition filming, this highlighter will give you a radiant, picture perfect finish, every single time. Its lightweight, velvety powder formula goes on flawlessly yet remains invisible to the camera. I actually don’t use highlighter so I really can’t tell you if this is good or not. All the reviews say wonderful things about this product, but I think I’ll see if one of my friends wants it.
Way Of Will 03 Soothe and Cool Massage Oil – Retails $29.50
Tough workout? Chill out with this post-training cooling massage oil. A base of sweet almond, apricot kernel and jojoba oil helps skin retain moisture and improves the protective barrier function of the skin. Jojoba oil increases hydration, elasticity, and suppleness, while German chamomile cools affected areas. This is a cool idea, but you would have to have someone to massage you. I tend to get sore in the back area due to so many years of gymnastics and cheer, so I would need help rubbing this into my skin. The combo of peppermint and chamomile smells really good.
Understated Leather On the Road Again Travel Set – Retails $28
This is currently SOLD OUT online. Pack your bags and hit the road in epic style with this gorgeous passport cover and luggage tag set. The metallic vegan leather duo featuring printed lettering will have you traveling in style. This is super cute and perfect for traveling. I can’t wait to use the passport holder the next time I go out of the country.
Vital Proteins Marine Collagen Peptides – SPONSORED

The subscription is $50 a box sent every quarter (if you pay in full when you subscribe, it’s a little cheaper). The total value for the box I received is $287.50 not including the bonus item. For the price of the box, it comes out to be a really great deal! I’m really excited to continue using some of the items in my Summer box, but I can honestly say that I won’t be continuing to subscribe.
