FabFitFun Winter 2014 Review

Have you entered my FabFitFun giveaway in the Hippity Hoppity Giveaway Hop?

I have a newish(to me) Subscription box that I want to show you all about.  This box is FabFitFun and it is a box that likes to bring you goodies that are not just Fab(beauty), but also Fit(fitness) & Fun(home & treats)!  It seems to me to try to have a bigger item that focuses on fitness of some sort.  I started with the Winter 2014 box that I received during the holidays.  The box is sent out seasonally and cost $49.99 each quarter.  They send out at least $200 in products plus several gift card/coupons/trials to put that total usually over 300.  I like that this box is always packed with different items so even if you think one or two items are not to your liking you still can find a lot of fun and value from the rest of the stuff.                     
FabFitFun Winter 2014
Lets just start with the Fab: 
Tibetan Goji Berry Anti Aging Eye Gel by Passport to Beauty($88):   This eye gel is light and works great for AM & PM use.  I like that it has no real scent and it absorbs quickly.  Mr Man took it and loves it.  He told me he is almost out and wants more.  
Green Apple Peel by Juice Beauty($39):  A nice facial peel for sensitive skin.  It is a lot looser than I expected.  This goes on easily and smooth and there is very little tingle.  It is also easy to rinse off which I can't say for most facial peels.  
Hand Cream with Evening Primrose by Lather($18)  This has also been taken by Mr Man.  He loves this hand creme.  He has pretty severe eczema on his fingers and this cream is heavy, but it absorbs well and is not at all greasy.  A full jar should last him a few months and I am willing to replace this one. Oh, and almost no scent.
Eyeshadow Duo by yourMinerals($44)  A pair of eyeshadow powder pots.  These are lovely colors but I am just not coordinated so I will be giving a set of these away.  

Moving onto the Fit:   ZUMBA!
Zumba Max DVD($30):  A full 60 minute workout for Zumba followers and newbies alike.  This is a great way to learn the moves in the comfort of your home.  
Zumba giftcard($25):  A giftcard to get you looking as great as you feel while working out at  This giftcard also comes with free shipping so you don't get shorted there.  

Onto the fun:  So Much Fun
Half United Necklace towards Fighting Hunger($34) This necklace gives off a look similar to dogtags.  There is a medallion with 'Half United Fighting Hunger' stamped on it along with a charm made of stacked shell casings.  I like that it is long and very casual.  I realize that not everyone is comfortable wearing bullet casings as jewelry, but for every piece of jewelry there is money donated that provides 7 meals to the hungry.  I can get behind that.  
COCO Body Candle by Daniel Stone($30)  I received the Pomegranate scented candle.  These are soy wax candles and burn very clean.  A lovely light scent.  You can also use the melted wax as hand cream.  Pretty cool.  

But wait, there's more!
Included are also some little sponsored treats in the box.  A sample of Justin's Almond Butter, An Organic Valley vanilla shake, and a Special K bar.
A gift subscription to for 3 months of access to gourmet chefs' videos & a $30 giftcard to Fashion Project.  Fashion Project is a clothing & accessory second hand shop where higher end brands can be purchased and a portion of each sale goes to a specific charity.  I used my giftcard and got a clutch purse by Monsac.  excited for it to arrive in a  couple days.

Well thank you for reading till the end.  The total of non-giftcards is over $275!  I like how well rounded this box was.  You can subscribe for yourself at (contains affiliate code or without) take off $5 off of your first box with the code:  NEW5

    1. I really like it more than some other eye serums and I have found it to be non-irritating.
