I Tried FabFitFun – Spring 2017 Unboxing & First Opinions

Hi guys!  As a Canadian girl, I know it’s sooo hard finding a decent subscription box that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.  Today I’ll be sharing with you my experiences with FabFitFun as I put it to the test, seeing whether or not it’s worth the money.

First off, FabFitFun is 50 U.S. dollars.  With shipping to Canada, it comes up to exactly $57.99 USD.  This converts to $79.66 CAD with the exchange rate.

 

Sitting at the top of the box was a Gypsy, The Boho Beach Roundie.  It has a cute design and is quite large once unfolded; perfect for a day at the beach.  I could definitely take advantage of how compact this is.  I live in an apartment and try – at least to the best of my abilities – to not keep things that I know I won’t use frequently, so I ended up shipping this off to my boyfriend’s mom who frequently jets off on cruises.  I know she’ll get a lot of use out of it.

Gypsy, The Boho Beach Roundie – $50 USD on its own ($68.68 CAD if you factor in the exchange rate).

 

This Milly pouch is coming off rather white in the photo, but it’s actually pale green in person.  It’s made of a canvas material on the outside, which feels nice and durable, and the inside is coated with a plastic/ rubber like layer, so if you want to keep your phone, wallet, or anything else in it at the beach they won’t get wet or sandy.  It’d also be handy for toting wet swimwear home from the beach since the plastic/ rubber inlay won’t let water leak out.

“RESTING BEACH FACE” Milly pouch – $45 USD on its own ($61.82 CAD if you factor in the exchange rate).

 

This kit is really cute!  I’ve already ordered the KL Polish spring collection, so I’ll leave these bottles sealed and pass them onto friends or family.  Considering the quality of Deborah Lippmann polishes, and that these colours are perfect for spring, these would be getting plenty of love had I not ordered my KL polishes first (side note: Stay tuned for my review and swatches of the KL polish 2017 spring line).

Deborah Lippmann polishes – $19 USD on their own ($26.10 CAD if you factor in the exchange rate).

This lip kit is a cute idea, modelling the Kylie Lip Kits but you also get a lip gloss. I don’t know if I would personally spend $48 on one of these kits, let alone the $65.94 CDN price tag but I can see their justification behind the price tag. Considering it’s almost the full cost of the box I am very happy for the extra addition to my makeup collection. I don’t do a bold lip everyday but I will still be getting lots of use of this kit. Also few facts about the brand they are cruelty free as well as free of parabens, sulfates, sythetic fragrences, gluten and phthalates. The colour payoff is amazing and the it does stay put once it’s dried down.

$48 ($65.94 CDN if you factor in the exchange rate from my box purchase)

 

This smells amazing!!! I’ve been wanting to try this Briogeo for a while now to see if it’s actually worth the hype. This Rosarco Milk has offically sold me. It smells so great and since I naturally always have tangles in my hair anything that can keep my hair smoother longer is welcome in my bathroom. A few sprays in my wet or damp hair and my hair is left super soft.

$26 CND

 

YES! My favourite part of subscriptions: New skincare. These masks didn’t make a huge difference but I also don’t have dry skin so this might not make the biggest difference ever for me. That being said there is something very luxourious about pampering yourself with a nice diy spa night and relax, kick back and throw on a mask. Same with the lipstick I can’t bring myself to spend $10 on one of these (or $34 for the 4 pack) so it’s really nice to have them for pampering.

$34 CND

I love a good scrub. I’ve only used this Dr. Bradt Microdermabrasion, a few times since I only try to use a scrub twice a week at most. The one downside, it kinda smells like cleaning chemicals. The thing that makes the downside worth it are the granules in this scrub are tiny and not chunky so they don’t feel scratchy on your face as some scrubs can. I think I will continue using the scrub but I don’t know if I will or can repurchase this. I can’t seem to find it online for purchase and the cost of this brand’s other scrub I cringe of spending that much money on one product. I am really grateful to have recieved this product as it is quite costly to purchase by oneself.

I couldn’t find the exact product but I found his other microdermabrasion here.

$98

Lastly, I could not for the life of me get a worthy picture of these beautiful earrings. They’re the Diamond Kite Crawler + Stud Set in Rose Gold from LUV AJ. These are GORGEUOUS and I would never treat myself to accessories of this cost but I can already picture so many outfits this is going to improve.

These are $85.00 USD ($116.76 CND if you factor in the exchange rate from my box purchase)

Final verdict: I’m excited to try these products. Considering I received $497.30 worth of products for $79.66 I would say this is a great value. The box got me some fun products that I wouldn’t typically buy for myself so I can try out and pamper with. I’m not renewing for the summer 2017 box because I think I this box is going to be more of a treat than a every season purchase but I do see myself re-enrolling for the box in the future.

What do you guys think? Is FabFitFun worth the hype or is there another subscription available in Canada you think I should try out? Let me know in the comments below!
