FabFitFun VIP Review - Fall 2014 - 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. They started shipping to Canada in the Summer and the shipping cost is a very reasonable $8! 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.

I absolutely LOVED my Summer Edition box, so I was really looking forward to Fall. I read spoilers online prior to receiving my box, so I knew what to expect. It's still fun to unbox it though!

Huge product card!

 First look

Jesse Steel Cream & Black Polka Dot Josephine Apron ($32)
With its flirty ruffle hem and pocket bow detail the feminine Josephine is perfect for today's hostess.
This was one of the first spoilers released by FabFitFun. The other colour options were pink or brown. I'm happy with cream. I left it in the packaging because I am going to be gifting it as part of a fabulous Christmas present!

 
Great Soles Ballet Barre Sock ($12)
Customers love this ballet inspired sock for studio classes. This feminine treaded sock features elastic straps and accents to add style to your workout. A cotton blend fabric and a heel tread boosts performance for the perfect studio accessory.
I don't practice yoga or Pilates so I will put these towards a Christmas gift for a yoga loving friend. 

Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster (30ml full size,$56)
A super- saturated hydrating fluid concentrate to help revitalize dry, parched skin. Hyaluronic Acid, Panthenol, Glycolipids and nutrient-rich Algae Extract help restore moisture balance and hydrate tissues to smooth skin, improve suppleness and minimize fine dryness lines.
This was another item announced as an early spoiler by FabFitFun. The value of this product alone is nearly more than I paid for the entire box, with shipping!

 
Gramr Gratitude Co. Thank You Card Set, Sealing Wax & Wax Press ($43)
This set includes four fall themed thank you notes with envelopes and a sealing wax set. I love note cards and try to send out hand written notes to out-of-town friends a few times a year. Gramr Gratitude Co. seems to be a subscription service (according to the Google description), but their website is currently down so I can't confirm any details. The value FFF put on this set seems very high... $43 for 4 cards, some wax, and a stamp?

LaNatura Avocado Body Butter (28g travel size, $18)
Avocado butter is famed for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and helping to heal and soothe dry skin. 
This lotion smells lovely but it's not a typical body butter. Instead of a creamy texture it's solid, like a jar of coconut oil. To use, melt some in your palm, then rub into your body. It's natural and vegan... and also very expensive. I will enjoy this small tub will it lasts, but I won't be buying a full size.

Beauty for Real True Color Lip Cream in Always There (Full size, $22)
The Lip Cream is a unique formula that provides the ultimate care for the lips with high impact, saturated color and long lasting wear. The applicator is designed with an LED light and a mirror allowing a controlled application anytime, anywhere.
The tube has a mirror on the other side and an LED light built into the cap. That's kind of ingenious!

The Honest Co. Hydrating Shea Butter Cleansing Bar in Juniper Sage ($4.95)
Who knew bar soap could be so much better? Our 84% organic bar soap is made with luxurious coconut, olive & argan oils that naturally moisturize, condition & soothe skin. 
I've only recently started using Honest Company products so I am happy to get this soap. If you are interested in trying The Honest Co., use my link here, and enter promo code HONESTLYFAB at checkout to save 25% off your order! Valid for first-time purchases only through December 31, 2014. You can check out my previous Honest Company reviews here.

CHI 44 Iron Guard Thermal Protection Spray (8oz full size, $14.50)
CHI 44 Ceramic thermal styling helps strengthen and protect the hair from daily use of thermal tools. 
I have received a few thermal protection products recently, but I do use a straightening iron and blow dryer regularly, so this is a good product to have.

FitFusion 3 months Free
FitFusion is a digital platform that gives you access to fitness videos from famous trainers. Workout in the comfort of your own home. Use the link above and enter code ffftrial to get your first 3 months free. It's a $29.97 value. You do need to enter credit card information at sign up and once your trial is up, you will be billed unless you cancel the service. Because of this, I don't count this towards the value of the Fall Edition box.

The Honest Company 25% Off Promo Code
Use promo code HONESTLYFAB at checkout to save 25% off your order. Valid for first-time purchases only through December 31, 2014. 
 
The Fall Edition FabFitFun VIP box contained ten products with an approximate retail value over $202 (or $230+ with the FitFusion trial value added in). It's a fun box, containing items from a variety of lifestyle categories. A few items will be used as Christmas gifts, but most will be used by me. I don't love it as much as I loved the Summer Edition box, but I'm still happy with this box and everything inside.

If you are interested in this box, use promo code TRYFFF to receive $10 off your very own Fall Edition box. If that one doesn't work, try FALL5 to save $5. The Fall Edition boxes are almost sold out, so if you want this one, sign up today! The next box ships in the winter.
