I have seen so many of these boxes opened all over the internet and just had to try them out for myself since I kept seeing so many fun things in them. This is my first FabFitFun box and I started out just signing up for the seasonal subscription but after this one arrived I ended up going back and changing my subscription to the annual one. How adorable is this packaging?!?
For anyone who may not know how it all works, here is a brief description. There are 2 subscription levels: seasonal ($49.99 each season) and annual ($179.99 up front for the whole year). With the seasonal you get whatever is packed in the box with no options and with the annual subscription you get the opportunity to personalize some of the items that will arrive in your box; picking things like color or choosing between 2 different items, so as an example: face wash or hair rinse. You will also be given an option to add-on extra items for an additional charge.
Each box has a retail value of $200+ and contains full-size products, clothing, jewelry, or fitness. In addition to all the fun items, each season there is a focus on one charitable organization to help bring more awareness to the many different groups and organizations out there trying to make the world a better place for all of us.
Summer 2017 box focuses on the Joyful Heart Foundation. This foundation was founded by actress Mariska Hargitay to help bring awareness and light to the epidemic of sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse.
The Summer 2017 FabFitFun box arrived right in the middle of our move between houses so you won't see lots of photos here and I have not gotten to try any of the things out.
In the box:
Michael Stars Ruana - $54 (there are three different color/print possibilities)
Kris Nations Fall Mystic Bar Necklace - $58 (this comes in the cutest packaging)
BKR 500 ml bottle - $35 (I love that this has a small opening so there is less chance of me wearing the water)
Cargo Cosmetics HD Picture Perfect Highlighter in Bronze - $30
Amy Tangerine Art Kit - $20
The total retail value on my box is $ 272. WOW!!! That is an awesome value and I get to try out some new things that I may not have purchased for myself normally. I can't decide whether my favorite is the ruana, the water bottle, or the eye concentrate, let's face it at my age eye creams are very important items. My least favorite is probably the art kit and even though I will not use the stencil or paints I will find a use for the canvas to maybe make a wall hanging for my art studio.
