Review: FabFitFun Welcome Box Second Edition

Hooray! It's Review Day!! I've been dying to review my FabFitFun box with all of you. FabFitFun was one of those subscription boxes I've been eyeing for awhile. I couldn't figure out if it was worth it or not until I read Alison @ How to Get Things Done in 10 Ways blog post a couple weeks ago. Much like Alison, I'm easily influenced. If someone else likes something, I'm probably going to try it. 

So...let's get down to it. I'm embarrassed about the amount of excitement that I experienced when I saw it on my door step. I may or may not have acted like it was Christmas morning. I got this pretty large sized box in the mail and couldn't wait to open it and snap my infamous Instagram photo that I've seen all my favorite Bachelor rejects posting season after season. Also, I won't lie at how shocked I was at the amount of stuff in the box. I'll go through each one by one.

1. Pop Chips Ridges Cheddar & Sour Cream
This was an extra in the box, as Pop Chips sponsors the box. And it may have been one of the best items. Since trying these, I've been hunting in every store I go to for the regular sized bags. I need more of these! They are so delicious, and guilt free!

2. Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo Invisible Spray ($25.00)
I actually used this one this morning. I love that this dry shampoo doesn't make your hair feel filmy. You know that feeling? The one where it feels like you just dumped a bottle of baby powder on your scalp accidentally? Not with this product! I actually felt pretty clean. What's even better is they give a really good sized full bottle.

3. Doctor D. Schwab Flawless Skin Fluid ($39.00)
I didn't think I'd use this product, but I ended up really liking it over my moisturizer. It gives you a little bit of that fresh dewy look. It doesn't feel heavy to put on and you only need a little bit, so even with a smaller tube, it should last quite awhile.

4. OFRA Brush #11 and #20 ($45.90)
As you may be aware, I don't wear makeup very often anymore, but when I do, I like to go all out. I definitely appreciated getting some professional grade brushes. And since I've been using the same brushes for the last 7 years, I am so pumped to give these bad boys a try.

5. AHA Hand Cream with Evening Primrose ($18.00)
Okay. This one I was a little back and forth about. Pros: I love the texture of this hand cream. It's thick but still doesn't feel greasy, and it leaves your hands feeling super silky. Cons: You're going to smell like a grandmother. I honestly immediately thought of a hand cream my grandmother loves. Which is totally fine, it actually smells really good. But that was all I could think about. I may actually gift this one to her! :)

6. Summer & Rose Yoga Towel ($36.00)
Yea. I don't do yoga. Nor will I ever. I can barely climb out of bed. I was expected this towel to be this rinky dink towel that I could through in my bag for the gym maybe. This towel is HUGE! I was shocked. I actually think it will make a really good beach towel to lay on. It doesn't seem like sand will stick to this material. For now, it's hanging in my bathroom as our giant hand towel. I'm kind of digging it.

7. Jook & Nona Tag Necklace ($65.00)
This is my kind of jewelry. Simple, classy, and gold. I'm a fan of tag necklaces as it is. This necklace is extremely well made and I've already gotten a few compliments on it from strangers!

8. HISY Portable Battery Charger ($24.00)
Not pictured, but this has been super handy. The portable charger fits perfectly in any bag or your pocket and is good for one full charge on your phone. Simple plug this baby back in overnight to recharge, and you are good for any low battery emergency that comes along. Essential for any blogger babe!

Total Retail Value: $253.89

After getting my Welcome Box, I begged my husband to get me the annual subscription as part of my Christmas gift which is priced at $179.99, which gives you each box for slightly cheaper than if you do the seasonal subscription. Also, by going to the annual subscription, you have access to their "Select" feature which allows you to swap out items in your boxes before it ships. I am seriously so excited to get my Winter Box in the mail in December. Will be sure to review that one when it comes in.

If you are interested in signing up for a FabFitFun box, make sure to Google coupon codes or just type in "FabFitFun" into the search on Instagram. There are always tons of celebs that are offering $10 off codes for a box. 

Who else has had FabFitFun and what was your overall experience with it?
