Minor History Postscript Wallet
$20.00 USD $26.00 CAD
Minor History's peach/tan card wristlet was my choice item. Once seen in person it's a bit smaller than I thought it was, so I will be passing this along. It fits ID cards and bank cards only which is sometimes all you need to bring, for myself I would end up putting it inside of a purse that carries phone, lipstick, keys etc. Made with vegan leather you can feel good about how your fashion is made. Minor History's website also shows they sell large bags, cross bodies, wallets and key holders to suit many styles. The company has been around since 2015 and give back by donating 5% of their profits to the Art's Action Fund.
Orlando Pita Play Atmos Shield Hair Protectant Treatment
$34.00 USD $44.86 CAD
To start off this smells so amazingly fresh, and added a lot more shine to my hair after applying to dry hair last minute before going out for the day. This is a 10-in-1- thermal heat protectant spray you can apply to wet or dry hair. People with hair types dry, fine, frizzy or colour treated will benefit the most from this spray. To maintain healthy hair the formula works against heat, uv rays, humidity, pollution and free radicals that all potential damage your hair shaft. I can see why Fab Fit Fun included this in the summer box to keep hair in good condition even in the hottest days of summer.
My only tip with this spray is don't apply directly after straightening hair with heat tools, it slightly brought my wavy kinks back. Do bring this to the beach with you to block uv rays, apply when you apply sunscreen and you will be covered head to toe. The website offers a variety of hair care with masks, treatments, and styling aids. Orlando Pita even sells the tinted dry shampoo that I have been eager to try out. Along with selling product the site offers hair inspiration in the tutorials from top stylist with easy to follow along steps.
Foreo Luna FoFo
$89.00 USD $117.43 CAD
This is Foreo's newest release technology and as a Fab Fit Fun member we were the first to try it. This device not only cleanses your skin but creates a customized routine using artificial intelligence to measure your skins moisture levels. The hygienic silicone brushes have two sizes the finer tips are designed for large areas such as your forehead and cheeks. For areas of the skin that are prone to oiliness t-zone and chin, the thick silicone deep cleans.
With the fofo design you will see two gold plates on the back, these are sensors to pick up your exact moisture levels and skin type. Once the device has retrieved it's information you can link it to the free app "Foreo For You" for all your customized skin care tips and tricks for your exact skin type. The app will then create t-sonic pulsations made just for you and sync it back to your device for proper cleansing. This is a lot of technology for something that will fit in your palm and I feel it will be a popular item for Foreo. The little device is completely waterproof and powered by two replaceable AAA batteries.
Coola Classic Face SPF 50 White Tea
$32.00 USD $44.00 CAD
This sunscreen offers high coverage of 50 SPF while giving your skin the benefits of a moisturizer with 70% organic ingredients. Wether your at the beach or hanging in the pool it will give you 80 minutes of water resistance without having to reapply. The one thing I really like about this Coola sunscreen is I can go foundation free because the ingredients in it help combat my skin concerns. The key ingredients evening primrose and linseed oils help eliminate redness and splotchy uneven skin. It is recommended for sensitive, dry, normal and combination skin types.
Pier 1 Imports Marble Ring Dish
$14.99 USD $18.47 CAD
Fab Fit Fun usually tries to include one or more household items in each box.The summer box had a chic ring dish with gold lining (which will match my room perfectly) and a marble face. It will dress up and shelf following the marble trend, and leaves a good amount of space for jewellery or whatever you decide to put on top. I have never owned anything from Pier 1 Imports so this is a nice start.
Aromatherapy Associates De- Stress Muscle Gel
$39.00 USD $51.76 CAD
The blend of essential oils in this gel is lavender, black pepper, rosemary and ginger to relax the mind and body.It's quite a strong mix so much so that the box it came in smelt like it before I even opened it. Using the hot/ cold technique it targets stiff sore muscles and helps eliminate pain. This was a choice item and I'm so happy I picked it, the smell is relaxing and I always have sore neck and shoulders that need attention.
As I was browsing the website I saw they sell a variety of body care for ultimate relaxation. The collections names range from relax - inner strength to nourishing & polishing. All collections are made up of bath salts, scrubs, essential oils and creams. The support collection stood out to me the most helping combat cold& flu tiredness to relax the body to heal. On the website you can read about the founders Geraldine Howard and Sue Beechey and their goal with Aromatherapy. The main head quarters is in Vancouver for us Canadians, you can order from the Canadian website linked below
Summer & Rose Beach Towel
$55.00 USD $72.64 CAD
Summer & Rose has some beautiful pieces in their collection, this towel included. It's a little steep for a towel and I would never have purchased it at that price if it wasn't included in our summer box. If you are an annual member you get to chose the pattern and colour of the towel. A blessing is it's made of microfibre making it impossible for sand to stick too. The size is jumbo which helps with being able to flip over while lying out and not falling off your towel.
Maji Sports Loop Resistance Band
$15.00 USD $19.80 CAD
Resistance bands are great for working muscles in your legs, arms and abs. I own one that is medium resistance but this is smaller. The smaller the band the more resistance for greater strength gain. The loop design is ideal for the band not to become untied during working out, trust me it hurts when it smacks you anywhere on the body. Fab Fit Fun members also get access to Fab Fit Fun Tv, where you can find workout videos to help get the most from your bands.
The add ons are items that are exclusively on sale for Fab Fit Fun Members this month I picked all these items and only paid $23.00 CAD
