MINI PENNY: FabFitFun Spring Box

FabFitFun Spring Box

It's here! The Spring FabFitFun box I've been looking forward to! I loved my partnership with them last quarter so much that I decided to sign up for myself. Check out all of the great items I got in my box and click through for a code for how you can get $10 off your first box.

Who else got the box this quarter?

My skin has been dry dry DRY this winter, so I was really happy that my box included a lot of moisturizing options. I swear that I have lotion or moisturizer in at least every room of my home! Here's what came in my latest subscription box:

I'm excited to get my first wearable FabFitFun item! When I had the option of selecting pieces for my box, this was pretty high on the list. When I got it, it's a little thinner than I expected, but will be perfect for once the spring temperatures raise a little. Quarantine bonus? It's comfortable and looks cute with leggings, so I can feel like I actually put clothes on instead of lounging around in my PJs (no shame there, though. I've spent a lot of the last 9 days in sweatpants!).

I was THIS CLOSE to buying this at Sephora on Black Friday. I was really happy when it showed up in my box because, hey, it's expensive. This one item alone cost almost double of my FabFitFun quarterly subscription. I've dedicated this to be part of my daily self care routine. Lots of phone and Switch time means I'm looking down a lot, so I've been making sure to moisturize my neck each night! [ Shop ]

This was the item I was most excited about, and therefore most disappointed by. I'm not saying it's not a good product. It's just not a good product for me. I've never used a sleep mask, I'm a side sleeper, and I'm a heavy sleeper. I don't really need help falling asleep, but I just thought this would be cozy. I found myself ripping it off in the middle of the night each night. So, yeah. I gave it to my boyfriend to match his Gravity weighted blanket! [ Shop ]

My gut was like, "oh great, a messy moisturizing oil." Wrong. This has been saving the dry skin on my arms and legs. It smells great and absorbs quickly. I think a lot of the LUSH lotions have turned me away from oily moisturizers because they just sit on top of the skin. But this one is nice to use and not leave little Tobias-Funke-esque prints all over the house.

I'm trying to look on the bright side of quarantine the best I can (I'm not a fluffy, sugar-coated person and hate inspirational quotes and all of that type of Live Laugh Love shit, so... positivity isn't exactly my strongest suit). But a bright side of not leaving my house for possibly a month or more is: no heat styling. I'm hoping that air drying and putting down the heat tools, in conjunction with this lovely conditioner, will help my hair look healthier. Once it came down to it, it was easy. Rub some of this stuff into damp hair and that's it! Tip: if you're like me and have bangs, clip 'em back and keep your hair pulled up in a scrunchy bun or big clip. This will help keep you from touching your face! It has been a challenge for me and this helps! [ Shop ]

Okay, the name of this sounds like a new age sleeping bag. I know. But it's lotion! I have another lotion. by this brand that I leave at my boyfriend's apartment that I love. This second product confirms for me that I really do enjoy this line. The Deep Sleep lotion smells amazing and I keep it at my bedside to get a little extra moisture (and those nice chamomile smells) right before I go to sleep. [ Shop ]

I mean, straws are straws right? I'm happy that these are available to help curb disposable plastic usage. I already have some portable straws that I like a little better, so these went in my gift bin and will go to someone at a later time. The colors are adorable and they come with a nice little carrying pod and cleaner brush. But what I don't like about them is that since they have no structure, they would be really hard to get through the plastic lid of an iced coffee without some real finagling. But the message is right -- limit your single use plastic!

I love Winky Lux. They just sent me a box of their new at Target stuff and I love them even more now. Getting this rainbow lip balm in my FabFitFun was a familiar delight. Their balms are great -- and that's coming from a balm fiend! [ Shop ]

I added this on as a paid extra item! I have been eyeballing this stuff at target for my perpetually dry feet (ew, I know, sorry) and so far, so good. It's a solid salve consistency, smells good, and absorbs quickly. What I like about the texture is that it's hard to over-apply. It doesn't glob or go on thick like aquaphor. In general, I have an aversion to any product I have to dib my hands into (those little vaseline lip balms, LUSH lotion containers, Aquaphor tubs) but this one doesn't feel like they have the same cross-contamination blasphemy that those do. [ Shop ]

What were your favorite items in your box this quarter? Or are you just thinking of joining? To give you an idea of how much stuff comes in each box, my Winter box had ~$250 worth of product, but this one had $380. Crazy, right? The box is normally $49.99 but you can get your first one for $39.99. Use this link to get $10 off your first FabFitFun box. And if you're not ready to commit to the full box, there are smaller Edits you can shop as well. Have fun and treat yourself!
