Cost: $49/quarter.

I like this months box design, it's totally unique. It has "In support of I Am That Girl" stamped on it, and I need to find out more about what this means.
From what I can tell, it is a pledge to support other girls. There is a girl pledge and a guy pledge. After reading more, I've discovered it's a mission to raise the standards for how we treat each other, how we treat ourselves, and how we treat the world.
The inspiration for this season's box is Spring. "Spring is a time of growth, rebirth, and inspiration".
31 Bits Gift Card -  $25. This is an online jewelry store. The sales go towards helping empower women's lives in Uganda. This jewelry is beads that are made from recycled paper. I don't normally like beaded jewelry, but I'm pretty fascinated by both the story behind the jewelry and the process the women use to make them. I will try and find a way to use this.
Sterling Forever Gift Card - $30. This is an online jewelry store. I just checked this out and there are quite a few items under $30. Everything I really want is just over that amount so I will end up paying a few dollars. Shipping is free though.

Makers Kit Herb Garden - $35. You can grow mint, thyme, and basil. This is a complete kit that has the plants, plastic pots, and compost. It even comes with a wooden trough to keep your plants in.
Shaving Emulation Lotion by HelloLegs  - $19.95. I thought this was lotion, but it's actually a shaving cream. Mixed with lotion. I can't wait to try and I hope it gives the shave it claims to.
Argan & Hemp Oil Therapy by Marrakesh -$22.99. Blend of nutrient-rich Argan Oil, from Morocco, and ultra fortifying Hemp Seed Oil significantly improves hair condition and texture. Leaves hair feeling silky smooth with a healthy, frizz free, glossy shine. Cuts drying time in half. K loves stuff like this so I'm def saving for her.
Merrithew Mat Strap Plus - $14.99. I really like this, even if I'm not quite sure how to use it. It does have a code for a Free downloadable exercise guide. Which I am totally going to need. This also doubles as a mat strap. I love the bright pink color. I can only find grey online, but this is way cooler.
Jook and Nona Gold Plated Tag Necklace - $65. I love this! This was one of the spoiler items and subscribers got to choose between Inspire (my pick), Love, Happy, or Dream. My usual gold bar necklace broke a few months ago, so I really wanted this.
Bodipure Keratin Gloves® and Socks - $9.98. You just put them on for 20 minutes and it makes your hands and feet nice and soft. These are disposable, so one time use. This is great for at home spa/pamper day. I will try it out this weekend when I can find 20 minutes that I don't need to my hands.
jus D’Amour Bath Bomb Trinity - $28. I love getting bath bombs. I think it's nice that an entire set was included. This does have lavender in one of them, which is the first thing I smelled when I opened my FFF box. The flavors are Lavender/Chammomile,/Ylang, Jasmine/Rose/Sandalwood, and Eucalyptus/Peppermint/Lime. The last one is the only one I can use, so the others will need to go to someone who can handle flower scents.
ISH Contour Kit - $32. The all-inclusive palette includes a highlighter, blush, bronzer, and contour. This was another spoiler item and subscribers got to pick their shade, either Light/Medium or Medium/Dark. There are ISH videos available to help you get your grasp on highlighting and contouring. This was a collaboration between FabFitFun and Joey Maalouf. ISH is a new brand. I was expecting this to be cream based, but it really is powder.
Well another great box from FabFitFun. This box has an approximate value of $282.91. I cannot pick a favorite item this month because I really like this months box!
