This was the inaugural fabfitfun VIP Box, which guaranteed a full-sized bottle of MoroccanOil. This promise was indeed fulfilled, but the rest of the box was pretty disappointing for me :(
Let’s start with some of the high points…
I was excited to get this item in particular because I’m running low on my usual hair oil, Bumble & Bumble’s Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil. I know I gave some of this to my aunt a while back since she had starting using argan oil, and wanted to see how it compares to the B&B (which does a great job of smoothing away frizz from my thick, curly hair).
Zoya Nail Polish by fabfitfun in “FabFitFun Fuchsia”
This is a beautiful color, but I already had an almost identical OPI shade. I gave it to my mom so it wouldn’t go to waste :)
per-fekt Brow Perfection Gel
This was considered a “bonus item,” and I still haven’t tried it out. Maybe over the weekend when I’m at home for a while…it’s tinted, and I have always used clear brow gel like Anastasia Brow Gel.
Now for the so-so stuff…
thinkThin High Proteien Bar in “Creamy Peanut Butter”
This was my breakfast one morning, and it did a GREAT job of curbing my appetite until around 1:00 (and it should for 20g of protein)! The taste wasn’t terrible, but was a little on the chalky side. I would probably buy this product in the future.
Jouer Lip Gloss
OK, I don’t know what the deal is with subscription boxes sending me lip gloss with glitter, but I will give it a try. I was wrong about a previous glittery color that turned out to be awesome, but the color really has me concerned this won’t work for me. We’ll see…
Blue String Bracelet
I’m assuming this was also considered a “bonus item,” and I have to say I do not like (close up below). First of all, I detest gold jewelry. Second of all, this thing would barely fit around my wrist, and I have pretty small wrists. Oh yeah, not to mention the fact that I had a hell of a time clasping it myself. Boo.
Now for the part I actually HATE.
Again, I hate gold – and this stuff looks CHEAP. About the only thing that impressed me about this was the fact that it came in individual bags.
The verdict: Not worth $50 in my opinion. I’ll give it another try with the summer box.
