Every Wednesday I take some time to review a product, place or experience in hopes I'll inspire someone to try something new!
A couple of my coworkers have been getting this box for a little while so I decided to give it a try!
Essentially it's not like other subscription boxes, it gets sent to you every season as opposed to every month aaaand ... it's $50 USD BUT you receive $150-$200 worth of products. I managed to get a promo code for my starter box which made it $20 USD for the first box.
After a long week my starter box arrived! ... With $14 in handling charges at the post office... That was a bit of a surprise but we are still within a good deal for the product value I've received so I stayed optimistic.
The box included $146USD in products.
- A foldover Clutch in ... Burgundy?
- A nude lip liner from Tarte
- An exfoliating sponge with soap infused.
- A face mist
- Promo codes and coupons for a few other companies.
The clutch came in black, I mean the colour doesn't really matter but why mention a colour in the description at all if there's multiple colours... And it's kinda weird. I don't know what I will end up using this for. This is pending a useful use.
EDIT: I've realized this bag is the same size as my laptop. I now have a laptop bag.
A week or two before signing up for FabFitFun I was talking to a coworker about Ipsy, the makeup subscription box and how it lost it's luster after a few months. We really didn't need another nude lipstick...
Ironically the first makeup sample I get is a nude lipstick!! It's... Nice? It's a nude lipstick... It can only be so much. This is pending a useful use....
The sponge I think is my favorite, the scent is nice and it works well. It's not overly abrasive but exfoliates nicely and it seems to hold it's soap well. This is useful.
The face mist initially confused me... The words out of my mouth were literally "what does this do" I gave it the benefit of the doubt and tried it a couple of nights and it does make my face look nice? I'm still confused over what it does but it works.
2 out of 4 products I found useful. On top of the price I'm less than impressed with this box. I'm going to give it one more delivery and if I'm still not convinced I'll be cancelling.
There was also a couple of promotional coupons in the box that I plan to investigate more.
FanFitFun gets 2.5 our of 5.
EDIT: Hello fresh promo card appears not to work in Canada...
