VIP features a mix of beauty, fashion, fitness, wellness and home products that help you feel good from the inside out.

Check out all my FabFitFun VIP reviews here.

The Winter box was designed by Elizabeth Olwen, a Toronto based surface designer. Canada represent!

Each season FabFitFun produces a mini-mag full of details on the included items, plus styling tips, recipes, and beauty advice.

This Winter season, FabFitFun supports the American Heart Association. Heart disease is the number one killer of women. According to the AHA, 80% of cardiac events may be prevented with positive lifestyle changes. Click here to learn more.

First look!

BB Dakota Poncho in Black ($70)
Behold the power of the poncho cardigan. Think of it as a super cute and comfy superhero cape. It features a reversible stripe pattern and blanket stitch trim.​ Poncho dimensions are 59" x 50".

There were three colours available. Select Members (yearly subscribers) were able to make their colour preference. I opted for basic, versatile black.

The poncho is made from 65% Acrylic and 35% Polyester. It's super soft and not too bulky. It's great for layered winter looks, or for keeping warm in a chilly office.

The black is reversible with charcoal grey on the inside! So far I've been using this around the house and at work when it gets a little cold. It would also be great for travel. I have a long-haul flight coming up next month and this poncho will be perfect. It's a cardigan and a blanket in one!

The mini-mag includes styling tips and ideas for how to wear your poncho this season!

This necklace is a multi-layered choker and lariat style in one.The choker measures 14" with a 5" drop chain and lobster clasp. The necklace is made with a micro-ball chain so it can be dressed down with jeans and a t-shirt or dressed up with a plunging neckline dress.

Select Members were able to choose between rose gold and silver. I went with my go-to silver.

This fun mug is oversized and perfect for cozy winter beverages. There were three designs available and they were doled out at random. You can see all the designs here. I had all my fingers and toes crossed for this Tiffany blue design.  It goes perfectly with my Breakfast at Tiffany's inspired The Sleepy Cottage sleep mask from the September Novel Editions box.

Ayesha provided some great beverage recipes to enjoy in our new mugs! The Harvest Sangria is calling my name. It's an updated version of mulled wine!

This 8-colour pallet includes a silky metallic highlighter which offers a glow that won't fade.There's a mix of matte and shimmer shadows for effortless blending and the fine, weightless powders glide on easily without smudging or creasing.

Select Members were able to choose between Nude and Smokey. I went outside my comfort zone and chose Smokey Eye Finish.

The mini-mag includes application tips for your eye shape. I can't wait to give this palette a try this holiday season!

AHAVA Mineral Hand Cream (150ml, $33)
This mineral-rich hand cream leaves skin silky smooth. It's formulated with Dead Sea minerals to keep your hands nourished and protected all winter long.

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate (50ml, $75)
I LOVE this product. I've received it a few times before in Sephora bundles. It smells like Christmas (orange, cloves, and cinnamon) and has a subtle warming feeling when applied. It's made with papaya, pumpkin, and pineapple enzymes. It uses both physical and chemical exfoliation to improve the appearance of skin texture. I was thrilled to see we would be getting a full size.

These socks are infused with aloe to treat your feet while you cozy up watching Netflix. The  aloe will last 25-30 washes. Socks were available in black ombre, red ombre, and this blue ombre and were randomly selected for all subscribers. 
The last two items in the box are Choice items. All subscribers (seasonal and yearly) were able to choose between two items, in two different categories. Subscribers also had the option to get both items for an extra $10. The value of your box will vary depending on the items chosen.
The Beauty Choice item was a Moisture Healing Hair Mask ($23 value) or Energizing Eye Masks ($16 value). I opted for the eye masks.

These eye masks contain collagen and minerals to revitalize and rejuvenate the delicate skin around the eyes. They'll perk you up as if you've just have 8-hours of sleep!

The Wellness Choice item was a Deep Sleep Pillow Spray ($29 value) or a FFFTV Fitness Ball ($16 value). I selected the ball for my box, then added on the sleep spray for $10. I'm including the ball in the review because it was inside my box.

FabFitFun TV Fitness Ball ($16)
This small fitness ball comes with all the tools to inflate, plus FabFitFun TV added new ball workout videos featuring Jillian Michaels! The ball is easy to inflate and deflate so you can take it on the go.

Here it is all blown up. It's about the size of a basketball.

The mini-mag includes fitness tips from Jillian Michaels!

The Winter 2017 FabFitFun box included nine items valued at $371 US (or up to $391 if you chose different items for Choice Selections). The value is fantastic, as are the products. This box has winter written all over it. From the cozy socks and poncho, to the necklace and makeup for holiday parties, to the luxury skincare to nourish dry winter skin. It's all perfect!
