FabFitFun Box Review & $10 Off Your First One

IMG_7615

After seeing many Facebook videos of celebrities and reality tv stars opening their FabFitFun boxes, I had to get in on the fun and see what it was about!  How exciting to have this box full of surprise goodies arrive at your door!?!  This box is seasonal so just 4 a year rather than monthly. It comes filled with full size products ranging from skincare to makeup to fitness items and the total value of this box was over $350!

How it works is you can opt to pay up front for the year for $179.99 or just pay $49.99 for each box and you’ll be charged before it ships (this is what I did) .  Doing the annual plan allows some special perks like priority shipping and you can customize items.

You can also get $10 off your first box here!

So here’s what I got:

Gypsy05 Roundie beach/picnic blanket – $50.  Can’t wait to use this summer!

Milly Zip Pouch – $45.  There were different versions included in boxes and I was really hoping I’d get the Beach Please one but oh well.  This is cute too.

Karuna Hydrating Mask – $28.  I loved this!!  Amazing for dry skin though you look kind of scary wearing it.

RealHer Lip Kit – $48.  This was another product that had different options but since I just had the seasonal plan, I couldn’t pick.

Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion – $79.  I’d likely not spend that on a skin care product so I’m excited to get to try this out!

Briogeo Leave In Conditioner Spray – $20.  I’m not really into hair care products but honestly this stuff is amazing!  100% will be buying again.

Deborah Lipman Nail Polish set – $19.  So apparently this is by a celebrity manicurist and I’m excited to try this out!

Luv AJ Earring Set – $85.  The highest price point in the box, super cute but one of mine was missing a stone.  I wrote in and they sent me a new one and I didn’t even have to bother sending the other one back.

Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies – $10

All in all I loved the experience and excitement of the surprise as well as the products I received. You can do the math and see you’re really getting bang for your buck with all these products.  Another bonus, I felt that they picked high quality products from ethical companies.  For example, Gypsy 05 incorporates organic fabrics and uses printing techniques that are better for the environment.  RealHer is all natural, cruelty free make up that also gives back through donating “20% of all gross profits to the American Association of University Women (AAUW)”.  I love supporting companies that with a mission!

Target April Beauty Box with Natural Products

IMG_7714

I did a post a while back about how awesome the Target Beauty Box is and I was so excited when I got the email that the April boxes were available and there was one with ALL NATURAL PRODUCTS!!  Yasss!!!  I have been transitioning to using only natural beauty products and have become more and more conscious of using only products from cruelty-free companies as well.  You’ll be happy to know that I looked into all of the products in this box and they have not been tested on animals.  So yes, all natural means better for you but also not tested on animals.  Even this box has a very environmentally friendly looking box.  Bravo Target!  Hope this is a regular thing.

This is such a great way to try out new products and for only $7 and FREE shipping!  Especially if you’re new to all natural products, this is your chance to introduce them to your routine.  Not to mention it’s just super fun to get this little box in the mail. They even give you a coupon towards your beauty purchase, but it’s only good through the month.  So test out those products quickly and use that to buy full size versions of what you love.

Fab Finds: Trader Joes Beauty Products

I’m a bit of a Trader Joes junkie.  Always have been!  So while I often talk about my favorite food products, there’s also some fab beauty finds there and guess what…they’re really affordable.  Here’s just a few products I am currently loving, though there are many more so stay tuned for round 2!

pumpkin-body-butter

Pumpkin Body Butter  $5

Top of my mind right now as we’ve just begun October and pumpkin is everywhere!  Not only does it smell deliciously like fall but it’s so rich and luxurious in how it feels on your skin.

Midsummer Nights Dream Lotion $4

This is a fantastic everyday lotion for dry skin.
Smells great and a good bang for your buck.

 

 

 

 

mango-shave-cream

Mango Shave Cream $3.50

My favorite shaving cream.  A little goes a long way, moisturizing for your skin and has a lovely tropical smell.

Lavender Salt Scrub $6

I love this exfoliating scrub and the scent of lavender
is so relaxing.

 

 

make-up-remover

 

Make Up Removing Towelettes $4

These are great for travel or just to have on hand when your too lazy to wash your face.

Target Deals this Week!

20160911_01al_01

Did you know there’s two sweet deals at Target this week!? Get a $5 gift card back with $20 beauty purchase. Great time to stock up on some basics!
$10 off a $40 purchase on clothes, shoes or accessories!

I’m definitely taking advantage of this because for being a discount store, Target has some great style!

I’ve been perusing the website and had just recently been to the store too. Here’s a few items that caught my eye!

Merona Dorothy Suede Loafer $24.95
Yes real suede! And in 4 colors. At that price you can snag two!

Merona Utility Jacket – $39.99

I came across this jacket in the store and loved it for a nice casual fall look. It might have been 95 degrees yesterday but Fall is coming!

Workout outifts!

C9 Champion® Women’s Featherweight Tank – $14.99

C9 Champion® Performance Legging – $34.99

love this top and leggings for a great price! I’m definitely not one to spend $100 on yoga pants.

 

And as for the beauty deal – I’m just going to call out my new favorite discovery at Target and that is the Yes to Coconut products. Amazing for dry skin and the smell reminds me of the beach!  Another bonus is they’re products are 95% natural and they don’t test on animals.

Happy shopping!

Target Beauty Box

IMG_3206

Excited to share one of my new favorite things – the monthly Target Beauty Box!  I heard about this little gem a few months ago in an email I received from Target.  I was intrigued and went online to check it out but little did I know it sells out really quick and I missed out.  #sadface

So here’s the low down on this box of treats

  • Comes out the first Monday of the month (at least that’s the pattern I’ve picked up on)
  • Can be found here (will say sold out until it’s for sale and will show the previous month’s products.
  • It’s only $7.00 and FREE shipping.  What a steal!
  • Mostly sample size products to try
  • Comes with a coupon for $3 off a $15 Target beauty purchase
  • Products range in price point
  • Usually includes some products that fall into the category of all natural, vegan, no animal testing which is great if you’re looking to go that route
  • Also a variety of different products so you get some facial skin care, body, hair, make up, etc.

Also, note that in July 2016 it was the first time I’ve seen them have 2 options for boxes.  I went with the Simply Radiant!

So mark your calendar with a reminder to get the August one because these sell out!
