FabFitFun - Spring 2015 + Coupon Code!

Disclosure: This post contains referral/affiliate links.

What is it?: FabFitFun is a quarterly subscription box that includes beauty, wellness, fashion, and fitness, all in one box! It's quarterly, so you get four big boxes a year! It's a great way to start each season off right with what's new and fun. For spoilers for next season, check out my Instagram or Facebook Page

How Much is it?: It's $49.99/quarter or $179.99/year. If you use code 'ramblings' here, you can get $10 off your box! The boxes are always valued at well over your monthly cost, so it's definitely worth it to try at least once!


It comes in a bigger box and is obvious what it is. I signed up right on the cusp of Spring/Summer, so this is the review for Spring and Summer will be up once I get it in!


I love the extra detail added in. I know it's just a sticker, but it's cute and makes me remember that boxes are packed by someone!


Everything is detailed out in the information page (packet?). I love when companies do this.


Rifle Paper Co. Cities Coasters Set ($16.00) - These are super adorable and could easily be gifted as a housewarming present if you don't use coasters! The box is really nice and feel sturdy enough for sweating drinks! The cities included are Paris, Tokyo, London, and New York, with two of each city included. A coupon was also included to be used at Rifle Paper Co.


ORLY Nail BB Creme ($15.00) - I admit, I had never heard of BB cremes for your nails until this. The information says it's used to smooth, moisturize, and brighten your natural nails. I'm not sure how much of this is possible, but I like the peach tint it has and it will be used for that. 

ORLY Nail Polish (Cake Pop) ($8.50) - Described as a white pink creme. It's a very light baby pink with just enough color to show up against my pale skin. It's definitely a spring color and one that could easily be used alone or with nail art.


Cosmos Creations Premium Puffed Corn (Salted Caramel) ($1.49) - This was a sponsored item, so its value isn't added into the box's overall value. I like when boxes add food in, and husband really likes it when those food things are caramel. This is all-natural, GMO free, and gluten free, so you don't have to feel bad about chowing down on it!

Merrithew 3 DVD Set "Intense Body Blast) ($35.95) - A $25 gift card was included with this to be used on Merrithew, but I'm not including that in the value (FFF did). After looking through their website, it's impossible to find a mat valued around $25 to be used with this DVD set. I don't have a mat of my own, so that was what I was aiming to use with the GC. You can still get one at a good discount, though.


Palmetto Derma Collagen Booster and Restoration Serum ($48.00) - I received this item before in a Boxycharm so seeing this included wasn't a huge thrill. For the cost, I expected some major improvement to my skin but wasn't super shocked then. I'm hoping that using it again will assist in getting rid of the few wrinkles I've found since!

Miracle Gro Gro-ables Seed Pack (Roma Tomato) ($1.49) - This is such a cute idea and very springy. It's something I want to try once we are moved out of our apartment, even though I have never been able to grow anything before. It is such an easy idea with plenty of options to grow whatever you might want! Also included with this is the free download of the Sprout It App, which helps you keep track of your plants and gives you tips as well!


Jules Smith Scarf (Modern Art Print) ($42.00) - I couldn't find either of the options from this box on the website, or anything that was around the same value. I like the print of this and that it's lightweight, but it seems very small in general. Obviously it's too hot to wear it now, and it's really too hot in the spring to wear it here as well. It will be nice to use once late fall gets here and it's a great way to brighten up an outfit!

Yasi Metallic Flash Tattoos ($36.00) - It's really hard for me to believe these are worth $36, as I found similar ones by the same company for ~$5-$10 on Amazon. I also am tired of seeing them, as they seem to be out of style months ago. They aren't ugly, they're just not for me. 

OFRA Cosmetics Eyeshadow Brush Duo (#11 and #20) ($45.90) - It's been made clear how much I love OFRA products, so I was thrilled to get these two brushes. I love getting new brushes, and I'm loving getting some high end ones. #11 can be used as a concealer or eye shadow brush, while #20 can be used as a wide shadow or foundation brush. Both are stiff enough for me to use to pat down all of my loose shadows, so that's what they will be for! Together, these brushes seem like they could do anything.


My total for this box was a whopping $248.84. FabFitFun totaled it at $273.89, but part of that has to do with the $25 gift card I didn't count. Also included but not pictured was a Vow To Be Chic Gift Card ($125) and a $40 Hello Fresh Gift Card. Both of these were sponsored as well, so they weren't included in either value breakdowns. Overall, I was pleased with this box. I was able to get some cute stuff, learn about something new, and get stuff I can use in the future. Once again, be sure to use code 'ramblings' to get $10 off your box and let me know what you thought of this box in the comments!
