Anyone else drowning in advertisements on the socials for FabFitFun or do they just know their demo? I was only two flashy reviews in and they had me. What is FabFitFun you ask? Well, it’s just as it sounds. A quarterly subscription box to fabulous items for beauty, home, general fun and fitness! All for $49.99/quarter or $179.99/year. Since it’s quarterly the items are all full size. See the box below! Summer fun!
But did it live up to the hype? I think so! The major draw with the (sold out) summer box was the Luna FOREO Fofo that bragged it used tiny sensors to sense your skin type and give you personalized skin tips (including skin age) through connection to the FOREO app. I was pretty excited about this, because I already use a silicone pad with bristles to wash my face. Highly recommend, btw, but more on my skin routine later. 🙈
So there it is! The coveted Luna FOREO Fofo (what a name!). You can see it’s about palm size. On one side you have the silicone bristles that you see there in the photos and on the other side is the power button and two little silver sensors for awkwardly touching to your face. Fun!
Right out of the box I was eager to give it a try, especially since it was mid-day and my face was no doubt at its oiliest. Hello, combination skin. Who knew a person could have both dry and oily skin all at once?!? Anyways. I took it out of the package and installed the FOREO app on my iPhone. Once installed you set up an account, tell it your age, how your skin reacts to the sun and your skin type. That was the part that made me wary. If I’m telling you I have combination skin, are the sensors really doing anything?
Anyways, then you follow the steps in the app that lead you through pairing the device and then moving the sensors on the back of the device from one cheek to the other then your forehead and finally your nose. I found the nose to be a bit awkward. There’s not a whole lot of flat space there to reach both sensors at once. After some adjusting, so it sat sideways on my nose, I got the confirmation the data was recorded.
It was interesting to see my skin age; it matched my real age. I again, found this suspicious as I had told the app that information… But I’ll take it. At least it didn’t say I had skin of a ninety year old at my young age. What a relief!
Next it says it saved your info and is ready for you to wash your face. I got my hands wet and rubbed on some soap (I highly recommend Dr. Bronners, but again more on my skin care routine later.) Then you hold the power button on until the device begins to vibrate. On screen, in the app, there is a visual that shows you the order to wash your face zones and the device changes vibrations to signal you to move to the next area. Awesome!
All and all I thought it was a great experience and I’ll definitely integrate the little guy into my skin care routine; though I’m not sure if it was not included in the box if I would have forked up the dough myself. However, if it really is doing all it says, I’d argue it’s a pretty great value in the box or purchased separately.
The verdict? Luna FOREO Fofo: 8/10
Okay! Next up and I promise the remainder of this review of the FabFitFun box won’t be so detailed.
Coola Sport Classic Suncreen – SPF 50. Full disclosure I have yet to use this in the sun. 🙈 Never been much to use sunscreen with my skin tone and if I do it’s usually a lower SPF. However, as far as value for the price ($34 on Amazon – almost the cost of the whole box), size and skin feel goes: I vote 9/10
Next up. Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel. Smells awesome! Not too overpowering and has a light feel on the skin too. I’m currently using some as I write this review. As far as a value rating I give Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel a 10/10. Feels great on the skin and can be bought on Amazon for around $15. So I’m not mad at it. 😉
Next. The Aromatherapy Associates Muscle Gel. Gonna be honest. Used this right out the box. I had just come home from work and my shoulder was tense. This bad boy both smells so good (essential oils, is that you?) and had my shoulder feeling ten times better within a few minutes. Definitely a 10/10 for the Muscle Gel. Currently selling for a whopping $40 on Amazon. Once again, I ain’t mad.
Now, the Pier One display plate (what do you call this). Anyways. It’s super cute. Love the gold accents. Seems well made and is totally versatile. A place to set your jewelry, a bar of soap and maybe even a glass. The possibilities are many! Pier 1 display plate: 10/10. Oh, time for a shameless self endorsement. I will have a similar item that you can get customized with your name in my Etsy shop this July. Prepare yourselves. 🍓
Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow. Not a lot to say here. Super great quality. Has not one, but two mirrors when you flip open the flaps and the colors inside are perfect for contouring my skin tone. Could even do some neutral eyeshadow. Tarteist Pro Glo? 10/10
Maji Sports Resistance Band: 10/10 It would be hard to go wrong with this one, honestly. It’s well made and would be great for a little resistance work while sitting at your desk.
YumiKim Cosmetic Bag: 10/10. I love this cosmetic bag. The print is cute and vibrant. It’s a great size. And there’s a lot of pockets. A big space at the bottom and a second opening at the top for makeup brushes and things. There was even a promo card for future shopping (though you have to spend $200. Yikes, but it’s something, so not too much complaint there).
Last. But not least (sort of). An eco-friendly WCS Straw. Can’t say this one didn’t pull at my Millennial-environmentally-contentious heart strings. NPR has me feeling that guilt early this week. So, I thought it was a cool little include. The straw (single-use?): 10/10.
In conclusion, if you have the money and want a fun quarterly subscription box with stuff you can actually use? Go for it! I’m excited to use all the products!
