FabFitFun Winter Box 2017



Hello TRL & welcome to my first Fabfitfun box! I have had my eye on these for awhile and decided to jump in this holiday season and give it a try. If you are a subscriber, then you already know the quality and fabulous finds that come in every box. If you were like me and haven’t taken the leap, here are all the details on how to join and what’s included. I initially joined on the seasonal membership not realizing joining on an annual membership would have given me the flexibility to customize my box. After my winter box I will be upgrading to an annual membership.

As a FabFitFun Member, you’ll get a box of fabulous finds in beauty, wellness, fashion, and fitness, hand-picked by the FabFitFun team, delivered once per season. Four times a year, you will be sent a seasonal box! Each box is limited edition and contains $200+ in retail value. Boxes are shipped in March, June, September, and December.

After selecting either seasonal or annual billing, you will be charged immediately at checkout. You will be sent an email confirmation of your order and will be given access to your FabFitFun account right away. If you sign up for the annual subscription you’ll pay $179.99* upfront for a full year of boxes. If you choose to join as a seasonal member, you will pay ($49.99*) per box each season.

Now lets check out what I got in my very first FabFitFun box.  I have included links to all product websites to help you pick up a few of my personal favorites for this winter season.

BB Dakota Poncho, retail $70

First up is the BB Dakota Poncho, which came in three color choices: black, charcoal and mulberry. Since I didn’t upgrade to the ‘select member’ I wasn’t able to pick the color. I got lucky this time and the black poncho came in my winter box. I absolutely love this poncho, its so luxurious and soft. I wear mine draped over my shoulder’s open, it can also be belted for a more fitted look.  I have wanted to try the poncho look so was excited this came in the box. It doubles up as blanket for your legs at home or when your out on the town.


Whether you’re lounging, at the office, or traveling this season, this ultra-cozy knit poncho will be your chic defense against chilly nights and overzealous air conditioning. The poncho features a reversible stripe pattern in three colorways: Black, Mulberry, and Charcoal. -Made from 65% acrylic and 35% polyester. -Female-Founded Company

AHAVA Mineral Hand Cream with Dead Sea Water, retail $33

My hands always get dry in the desert winter weather. As a surgical physician assistant I wash my hands frequently at work so I was really excited to get this tube of hand cream in my box. It’s a great size and will last all winter long, a little goes a long way with this hand cream. I keep mine in my work bag and picked up another one for home.

Formulated with Dead Sea minerals, witch hazel, and allantoin, this mineral-rich hand cream protects and safeguards hands from environmental and household damage, instantly improving skin’s moisture level, smoothing rough, dry skin and restoring suppleness. -150 mL -Paraben-Free, Cruelty-Freee, Vegan -Allergy tested and approved for sensitive skin.

Homemade by Ayesha Curry Mug, retail $18

Coffee is an everyday necessity for me and I love having unique coffee cups to have my morning cup with. In this box there was a  few mug options and all subscribers received a random choice. Mine is the mint green mug that says ” I’d rather be in bed” with super cute lashes in gold. For those who don’t know me,  I’m obsessed with all things lashes.  This mug is super cute and I can always use another coffee mug at the house.

This cozy oversized cup was designed with love by Ayesha Curry, New York Times best-selling author, TV host, restaurateur, chef, and mom. It’s perfect for all your favorite beverages, whether it’s hot cocoa and marshmallows, or something a little more grown-up (wink wink). Enjoy!

Pointe Studio Aloe Infused Cozy Socks, retail $19

Living in the desert, socks and shoes are optional even in the winter time. Other than for working out and working in the operating room the only other time I wear socks is at bedtime during the winter.  I’ve never heard of or tried Aloe-Infused socks before, but instantly fell in love this these. Softest pair of socks I’ve worn and my feet feel soothed after a full night’s sleep.

Whether you’re lounging or lunging, this sock is a must-have. Not only do aloe-infused socks provide unrivaled comfort, but the cozy material also keeps your feet warm and moisturized in the winter chill.

8 OTHER REASONS Nine Lives Choker, retail $58

I’ll admit I have not yet worn this choker and it may not find it’s way into my wardrobe. I’ve worn multi-layer necklaces in the past and I have not yet found a way to store them without getting them into a huge knot. Annual subscribers were able to choose between rose gold or silver for this choker. My winter box came with the sliver which is just gorgeous!

The Nine Lives Choker features a micro ball chain and comes pre-layered for easy multi-layered styling. It also has a lobster clasp closure and measures approximately 18″ in length including the extender. -Made from base metal alloy -Rose Gold choker has 14K + Copper Plating + E coat to avoid or change skin color -Silver choker has silver plating with rhodium + E coat to avoid tarnishing or change skin color

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment, retail $75

I love using a good exfoliator and have been religiously using the Microdermabrasion paste by RODAN+FIELDS for over 3 years. I loved how this one left my skin after the first use. It’s overpriced for the amount in the tube and will unlikely purchase again. It’s always fun to try new products!

This fan-favorite and award-winning product dramatically smooths skin with both physical and chemical exfoliation, improves overall skin texture, reduces the appearance of pores, and turns back the clock on some of those fine lines and wrinkles. Use day or night, once or twice a week for just two minutes to achieve that “Hollywood glow.” -1.7 fl oz -Featuring Kate’s signature 3 P’s: papaya, pumpkin, pineapple enzymes -Female-Founded Company

This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, retail $29

Subscribers were given a “Wellness Boost” choice between this Deep Sleep Pillow Spray and a Fitness Ball. . The spray is said to help reduce sleep associated anxiety and improve sleep quality. I’ve never tried a sleep spray before, but I figure now is a great time to try it out. I’ve used it now over the past 2 months and love it! It has the perfect balance of fragrance that lasts all night but doesn’t overpower your bedroom or leave a stale smell days later. Will definitely purchase this in the future since a little goes a long way.

Who doesn’t love new make-up? I know I do and this palette is so versatile! It came in 2 color options. What I love most is the palette as magnetic wells which allows me to change colors or replace existing colors when they run out!

 Nelson J Beverly Hills Moisture Healing Mask, retail $23

Last item in my winter box was this healing hair mask. I was so thrilled to get this. I have thick, dry hair with tons of volume but tends to get extra dry in the winter months. This healing mask has a coconut fragrance that smells like summer in a bottle. It feels great and adds and locks in moisture that my hair is dying for this time of year. I will definitely add this to my list of items I will purchase again.

This hair mask features an argan oil 7 formula, which detangles hair, controls frizz, prevents color fading, seals split ends, protects from chlorine and salt water, restores silkiness and shine, and enhances hair’s natural body. Not only that, the 100 percent argan oil moisturizing treatment provides long-lasting and effective results for color-treated, dry, or damaged hair.
