FabFitFun VIP Summer Box

Fabfitfun

FabFitFun VIP Box is a new subscription box from Guiliana Rancic and FabFitFun. It’s a quarterly subscription box that is $49.99 every season. This is a review of the Summer Box. I’m just going to start off by saying that this review is WAY overdue. Apparently FabFitFun did not have my address in their system when they were shipping all of the boxes a couple weeks ago. I just got my box on Saturday July 27th, and was expecting it a few weeks ago. At least the customer service was really nice and emailed me to tell me what had happened.

Here’s what was in my FabFitFun VIP Box:
yes_to_cucumbers

Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes// Value $2.99
I have used these before and I love them! They’re really cool and refreshing!
orly

Orly Nail Polish // Value $8.50
I love getting nail polish in my subscription boxes! My collection is growing steadily but I didn’t have anything from Orly.kind
 Kind Bar Dark Chocolate Chili Almond // Value $1.50
 I enjoy getting Kind Bars in my subscription boxes! This is something that I will never get tired of getting! Obsessed! I’m not a dark chocolate fan- but this was simply amazing! 

Catalinasu

Catalina Su Lip Gloss // Value $14
 I have been getting a lot of lip gloss lately! Not complaining about this one bit though! I love this color and I think it’s flattering for any skin type. I love pink’s like this!
 surf_spray

It Hair Care Surf Spray// Value $7
I currently use “Not Your Mothers” beach spray, but I’m excited to try something new! This is something I will definitely use! Plus, it smells so good! 

infinitysun

Infinity Sun Glow on the Go Sunless Tanner (Travel Size) // Value $35
 I stopped going to the tanning salon because I realized my health is more important than my love of  being tan. I was kind of addicted.  After reading in Cosmopoitan that going to the tanning bed increases your risk for melanoma 2% every time you go, I immediately stopped going ! I didn’t look like I belonged on jersey shore- but I loved it. I’m glad that they included this in the box, I’m always on the search for the right sunless tanner!

evian

Evian Mineral Water Facial Spray //Value $12
I have always wanted to buy this but couldn’t justify spending $12 on water. This is supposed to be great for setting your makeup and refreshing your makeup throughout the day. Not something I would buy, but I am happy they put it in the box!

purlisse_milk_cleanser

 Purlisse Delicate Gentle Soy Milk Cleanser // Value $36
I’m interested in trying this Cleanser. I like that it’s natural and won’t strip your face of your natural oils.

ivory_and_mason
 Ivory + Mason Sunglasses // Value $135
Really didn’t like these glasses… Luckily, Ivory + Mason will let you exchange your glasses for $10 and let you pick out a pair you would actually wear. I’m tempted on doing that! These don’t fit my face very well and I really don’t think I’d wear them.

I paid $49.95 for this box and it had the value of over $250!!!
Verdict: I loved almost everything in the box! The only thing I could’ve done without was the sunglasses. I’m excited to see what the Fall FabFitFun VIP box has to offer! Fall is definitely my favorite season by far! I Can’t wait to see what the next FabFitBox’s theme will be!

Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan oil review

I did not get serious about my skincare until I was about 21. I have wanted to try this product for a couple of years because I have always heard only good things about it. I got this at Sephora in the “Sephora Favorite Super Stars Beauty Essentials” kit. It is 0.5 FL oz. and retails at $14. A little bit goes a long way, and all you need is a few drops. You can use it on your cuticles, face, body, or in your hair!

I have noticed that it has given my hair a whole new life. I have dry, damaged hair from using heat and coloring my hair and it has completely saved my hair. I put it in after showering when my hair is still damp.

I have also been using this on my face at night after washing/ exfoliating my face and also in the morning in place of a moisturizer and I have gotten compliments on how rested I look (even though I haven’t been getting much sleep) and how radiant my skin is. I have combination skin that at times gets very oily and I was scared about using oil on my face. The oil is so light that it just absorbs into my skin without a trace of looking greasy. I haven’t noticed any clogged pores either.

This is a product that I don’t mind splurging on. I will be buying the bigger bottle when I run out of this.
If you want to try it out, I suggest the smallest bottle for $14/ .5 FL oz. But if you’re worried about using oil in the morning, I suggest the Josie Maran Argan daily moisturizer SPF 40+ lotion as a morning alternative.

Pros:
• This oil can replace at least 3 things in my beauty collection
• Non-greasy and a very light oil
• No smell
• A little product goes a long way
• 100% argan oil
• organic with no chemicals added

Cons:
• $14 per .5 FL oz. is very expensive
• No SPF

You can buy this at Sephora.com or QVC.com
