Fab Fit Fun has you set for crisp Autumn days with this box with a mix of beauty, home and lifestyle products. The charity they chose for this season is Christina Applegate's "Right Action For Women". This Charity helps assist women who are at an increased risk for breast cancer. I'm going to cut right to it this time, the full Canadian retail value of this box is $388.39 with the items I have selected. Keep in mind when you sign up annual you can chose what items you get on select products. Sign up following this link https://t.fabfitfun.com/SHkm and use my code "FALLINLOVE" for $10.00 off your box As you continue reading I will break down each items full USD and CAD value , plus my review on each. Let's get started before one more leaf falls on the ground outside.
Crown Brush 6 Piece Set
USD $75.00 CAD $97.72
These 6 brushes are made of 100% ultra soft Japanese synthetic bristles. The kit includes a powder, blush, concealer, shadow, blending and eyeliner brush all strapped into a vegan faux leather brush holder case to protect the integrity of the brushes. A major step forward with these brushes is they don't test on animals or use animal hairs; NO SHEDDING! With synthetic bristles it can be used for all mediums liquids, cremes and powders without trapping the product resulting in wasting more makeup and streaking applications. Each brush is made by hand not a factory machine leaving them soft and rounded not stiff and with unevenly packed bristles. The handles are PBT that won't absorb water, my hope is it will extend the life of the brush by not getting water breaking down the glue between brush head and handle. You have the choice of picking black or silver design colour, I chose silver to match my other collections.
Alfred French Press Coffee Brewer
USD $22.00 CAD $28.66
For annual members this was a choice option with a flower teapot. The design reads "but first, coffee" is a limited edition collab with Fab Fit Fun. I'm not a avid coffee or tea drinker resulting in me making a quick decision between the two and passing this on. If you do love making your own coffee this press will look great as kitchen decor or a gift to the coffee addict in your life. In the US ALFRED has locations for cafes that are very Instagramable, where you can stop for a drink.
CYLO Cobra Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds
USD $40.00 CAD $52.12
Seeing the CYLO earbuds in the selection panel was a huge yes for me. Between travel and fall walks under the changing leaves I always have music playing to boost my mood. The bluetooth wireless feature helps eliminate cords getting tangled and ripping out of your ears during a workout as well. Annual members have the choice of colour black and rose gold or white and rose gold (pictured below). The little cord between the ears contains a controller for volume, song skipping and phone calls with a built in microphone. The charging time is about 1.5 hours for the full 4 hours of talk and music playing.
Grown Alchemist Hydra Repair Day Cream : Camellia Geranium Blossom
USD $49.00 CAD $63.84
Grown Alchemist is suitable for all skin types to apply for hydration. The cream absorbs right into the skin leaving no trace of oil and shine, though I'm sure you can mix in a dewy liquid highlighter if that's the look your going for.
The key ingredients are;
Camellia and Rose hip oil - Hydration
Aloe Vera - Skin softness
Jojoba Oil - Rebalance
Sugar Cane - Smooth and help block uv skin damage
May Blossom- Brings balance to the level of your natural sebum production to reduce oil and shine and tighten your pores
Grown Alchemist prides it's self on using only organic ingredients in their skincare line. Free of harmful chemicals the cream will benefit the skin instead of contributing to early ageing with toxins.
Farmacy Dew It All Total Eye Cream
USD $38.00 CAD $49.55
Dew it all total eye cream's main ingredient is phytochemical cichoric acid which will firm the skin while actively entering the enzymes that harmfully tear apart collagen. Lack of collagen around the eyes is what will result in fine lines and lose wrinkles saddled around the eye. Fine lines are the first sign of early aging, with this cream the ingredients algae and rose hip oil extract reduce and prevent the appearance of the lines.
For a moisture surge Farmacy added hyaluronic acid to pull moisture to the skin giving it a healthy glow around your eyes. To extend the glow baobab fruit and vitamin c ingredients work together to promote cell renewal. Eyes have a tendency to be red and puffy especially in the mornings which is where chamomile and calendula come in to combat those signs.
Farmacy works with local farmers for organic sustainable ingredients. They are cruelty free, mineral oil free, paraben free, formaldehyde donor free and synthetic fragrance free. I have favourited some of their products on Sephora.com and can't wait to try a new brand for face masks, moisturizers and skin essences.
USD $20.00 CAD $26.08
Everyone and their mother's know about the beauty blender, makeup applications have never been the same since their release. As a staple piece in any makeup kit you can never have too many of this helpful tiny but mighty tool. Being that the colour selection was distributed at random I was hoping for the robin blue (I already have pink and black) but at last I saw a pink one when I opened my box. If you have never purchased one you need to get on the band wagon, hopefully this one in the box will open your eyes to the makeup application you have been missing. I have tried copy cat brands of sponges and many are just awful and stiff even after wetting. The best sponge recommendation next to the Beauty Blender is the Real Techniques sponge which preforms well. This was a great choice for the Fall box because it's universal for everyone.
Glam Glow Bubble Sheet Oxygenating Deep Cleanse Mask (2 pack)
USD $18.00 CAD $23.47
For this season's add ons I ordered the Glam Glow mud mask, with this in the box I will be set for face masks for awhile. I have not tried their sheet masks ever, only the tried and true Glam Glow original mask. This bubble sheet mask is a new release that foams as you wear it. Formulated with green tea teaox to combat dull skin and shrink pores to revive the skin to a beautiful glow. The amino acid will give a JLO glow to your complexion in minutes. Once the mask is finished working it's magic it can be used as a wash cloth, to remove excess foam. My only concern is the mask doesn't list that it is suitable for sensitive skin, only a single use will answer that question for me. The original glam glow mud mask works wonders on my skin, I can only have high hopes for the sheet masks to do wonders.
Simply Whimsical Set of 2 Tea Towels
USD $14.99 CAN $18.26
These tea towels are cute and neutral to match an array of kitchen aesthetics. You can never have too many towels wether it be for dishes, drying hands or to dress up the stove handle. Fab Fit Fun focused on the kitchen this month with these towels and the teapot or coffee press. Simply Whimsical's website also has some super chic aprons to order with unique patterns.
Skin CO Roma Blue in Capri Shower Gel
USD $22.00 CAD $28.69
This is the type of shower gel I'm all about; Italy is calling. A sweet escape to Italy while bathing to take me away on vacation if only for a few minutes. They pulled the inspiration from Capri Italy's lemon farmers to combine wild sage, lemon, and alpine rose. The whole line is Italian themed with body and skincare being that it's an Italian originated brand. A few collections on the website are limited edition, still many of them are year round. Once having a look on the website I can see a bathroom decor change coming soon. Decor vibe being the Italian coast with blues and lemons to make a fresh looking bathroom. This shower gel and Skin CO Roma get a thumbs up from me, another reason I love Fab Fit Fun they introduce you to brands you may not have found on your own.
