FabFitFun Fall 2014 Review

K just announced she received a delivery message for her FABFITFUN, so I ran (literally) to check the mail. This ships FedEx Smartpost and arrives to us via USPS. Sure enough, there is was sitting in the mailbox, with a  It promises $175+ worth of full-size premium items. FabFitFun has the seasons hottest beauty, fitness, fashion, and wellness items. We had both gotten emails that let us choose our Jesse Steele aprons, and were told ours would be among the firsts to ship. I just got an email saying mine won't be delivered until Wednesday.
 
 
The do a really nice info card.
 First Look!
The Honest Co. Hydrating Shea Butter Cleansing Bar, Juniper Sage - $4.95. Since I post in the order items are pulled out, this came out first. We have now identified the scent. I personally don't mind the smell of Sage, but K is not so thrilled, she was hoping for tangerine vanilla.
UPDATE: I got the Lavender soap.
Jessie Steele Apron - $32. If you aren't familiar with Jessie Steele, I gotta tell you they are the cutest aprons and oven mitts on earth. I'm sure of it. K picked this apron. The cotton is not as soft as I imagined, and the gold dots are sticking together when opening. So, if this is the one you received, open carefully. Still super cute!! I'm imagining it will need ironed from the back only.
 UPDATE: I got the one I requested, pink with grey trim and white polka dots!
 
 
There was a 25% off coupon included, which I was hoping for, and will be using for sure!
CHI 44 Iron Guard - $14.50 - K was almost out of the other hair protector spray she uses, so this was great timing for her. I will be saving mine and using later when needed.
 
 
Gramr Gratitude Co. Thank you Card Set, Sealing Wax, & Wax Press - $43 - Love this. You just light the candle, and put some melted wax on your paper, then you can use your seal, which says THX. Makes me feel royal. I never would have bought this for myself, but thrilled to have it.
 
 
 
LaNatura Travel Size Body Butter Avocado - $18 - This smells wonderful and K really is thrilled with this. I don't know if there are different kinds but I hope to get Avocado too, which is my favorite to use on feet.
 
Great Soles Pink Ribbon Ballet Barre Ped - $12 - These have good soles, with the non slipper dots on them, great for yoga. Love the straps on them. These are not bulky, soft, and super cute. This was another spoiler item we were really looking forward to getting.
Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster - $56. This is a super-luxe, ultra hydrating concentrate. I've used this stuff before and it works well. I've listed the price included on the info card, and what the official website states, but I already know you can find this much cheaper from other online stores.
Beauty for Real True Lip Color Lip Cream "Always There" - $22. The link to the Beauty for Real website is down, so your getting a link to Dermstore. We have received this item before, but in a different color. I LOVE that it lights up, is super convenient when applying in not-so-well-lit areas. One of my favorite lipglosses.
 
Mary's Gone Crackers & Numi Organic Tea - both of these were Bonus Sponsored items. I will try the crackers, but I'm just not a fan of tea.
 
FitFusion 3-month Digital Subscription - FitFusion is a digital platform that offers you tons of premium fitness video content from famous trainers. You have different options, yoga, Pilates, HIIT, bootcamp, dance, and more. You can stream from your iPhone, IPad, laptop, TV, Chromecast, or Apple TV. We will be using our subscriptions, but unlikely to continue with them since so much stuff is available free on cable. I love that FFF includes a fitness item each month, I just need to get more motivated to actually utilize it.
 
FabFitFun has 3 different challenges for October. I loved this concept. #1 write a thank you note and post it. I'm so thrilled to get the wax press, but I seriously haven't written a hand thank you note in years. Call me old fashioned, but I tend to send my thank you's by any method that can be done over my smartphone. #2 involved putting on the April and cooking something. Hey, wait a minute, I'm just in this for the outfit. #3 is encouraging us to remember October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. You are supposed to take the self breast exam, then post a picture on the front of this card for a chance to win an iPhone6. K has really been wanting the new iPhone 6. After reading the challenge on the website, I'm still not sure what kind of pic they are looking for.  Even if I don't participate I still think the challenges are awesome. 
I already explained the FitFusion coupon, but we also got an Honest Co. Coupon worth 25% off your first order. I don't know that we can use these since we are already Honest Co subscribers.

We are thrilled with our FFF boxes this month! This is the subscription we look forward to the most, the value is always there. I can't wait to see my apron when it finally gets here on Wednesday!
