FabFitFun VIP Review - Summer Edition 2014 - Women's Lifestyle Subscription Box + PROMO CODE

This post contains referral links.

What is it? FabFitFun VIP 
How Much? $49.99 per quarter, plus $8 shipping to Canada 
What’s in it? Full-size premium beauty, fashion, fitness, and wellness finds, valued at least $100

FabFitFun VIP is a US based lifestyle subscription box for women. This season, they started shipping to Canada and the additional shipping charge is an incredibly reasonable $8. I've been coveting this box for quite a while so I was thrilled to hear the Canadian shipping news. FabFitFun is a beauty and lifestyle e-zine that is associated to E! News and Giuliana Rancic. Every 3 months, the editors of FabFitFun send out a mystery VIP box filled with their favourite products as well as must have products of the season.

The box shipped via UPS and arrived within a week of ordering. There were no additional tax or duties owed at the time of delivery. It's about the size of a standard shoe box, weighed in at 3lbs, and was filled to the top.

Lots of spoilers were available online but I glazed over them. I sort of knew what to expect but didn't read all the details. All I knew for sure was that this box has an estimated retail value over $240!

Thursday Friday Diamonds Away Mini Clutch ($35)
This canvas clutch/cosmetic bag is super cool. There were a lot of different designs available but I'm pretty happy with the one I received. I like the white on canvas print.

POPchips in Sea Salt & Vinegar ($1.29)
I love that this box sends a little bit of everything, including snacks. Unboxing works up an appetite!

Slim Fast Have Your Cake...Vanilla Protein Meal Bar (1 bar, $1.10)
This really did taste like a piece of vanilla cake, which made it way too sweet for my tastes. For those with a sweet tooth, it would make a good treat item rather than a meal replacement bar.

Zoya Nail Polish in Maya (full size, $9)
At first I wasn't sure about this colour but now I think I love it. I see a pretty peach pedicure in my future.

KISSTIXX Lip Balm in Strawberry & Chocolate ($5.99)
"Simply smooch to unlock a mind blowing flavor combination and experience a kiss you won't soon forget." Love lip balms but this may end up on my swap/sell board

Sonya Dakar Flash Facial (1oz/28g full size, $95)
Apparently Gwyneth Paltrow is a fan of this product... At a whopping $95 per ounce of weight, this is the first and last time I will ever own it. I'm looking forward to trying it out and seeing why the hype is all about.

Balanced Guru No Frizz Oil (30ml, $25)
This one claims to take flyaways without weighting down hair. Sounds promising but I don't really enjoy the smell of lemongrass. This may be another swap/sell board item.

Always Xtra Protection Long Panty Liners (12 liners, $1.50)
Not very exciting, but always useful.

pur~lisse pur~protect essential daily moistuizer SPF 30 (50ml full size, $55)
More sunscreen. Love it! I just received a sample size of this in my July Ipsy bag too. I won't have to buy any sunscreen for at least a month! :-p

Skintimate Shave Gel (78g, $1.99)
Like the liners, not very exciting, but also very useful.

FabFitFun Infuser Water Bottle ($15)
I have a glass version of this but I love this plastic one. It's lightweight and great for travel and fitness. And I just noticed there is a dead fly INSIDE THE BOTTLE. How did it get in there?

FabFitFun's Summer Edition VIP box contained 11 items valued at $245! Everything is full size except for the shave gel and liners, which are brand sponsored deluxe sample sizes. It's a great box with a mix of beauty, lifestyle, fashion, and food. I'm happy with every product received and I'm looking forward to trying several of the items. FabFitFun has an article on their site titled "How to Pick the Perfect Subscription Box". Of the five points listed, the FabFitFun VIP box hits all five. It's worth the value, it's full of full-sized products, it has variety, it is risky, and it's ahead of the trend. I think this is my new favourite lifestyle subscription box for women and I can't wait to see what next season brings!

The Summer Edition FabFitFun VIP box is still available to purchase. There are three codes currently so if the first one doesn't work, try the next one. All are valid for new subscribers only.
  • Code 1116704 will get you $15 off the Summer Edition box, while supplies last. Limited code redemption allowed so if this one doesn't work, try the next code.
