Fall 2018 FabFitFun Box

Happy Monday loves!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend! Here we are, back at work on Monday! :p

I took the plunge in ordering the Fall 2018 FabFitFun Box when I received an email with $10 off your first box! Who can say no to that?

Let me tell you, I was not disappointed! There’s a mix of beauty, self care, fitness, jewelry, and accessories!

This box originally is $49.99 and it’s sent every season. In my opinion, this is a no brainer since the total value is $295!!!! :O I don’t know about you….But I’m sold! Another plus is that you can customize a few products which is also nice! Meaning: you have 3 choices and you get to pick one!

GLAMGLOW BUBBLESHEET OXYGENATING DEEP CLEANSE MASK (2 Pack) – $18

I’ve heard many great things about this brand, especially the mask! This mask will have you glowing! It’s a weekly bubble detox to put skin in it’s happy place. I haven’t used this one yet but they give you a 3D bubble experience!

Spongalle Body Buffer in “Freesia Pear” – $16

So I’ve never used a body wash infused buffer but hey it sounds and smells amazing!! You can use it more than just one time which is always great! It’s dermatologist tested and works for all skin types. It cleanses, exfoliates, hydrates and massages. Apparently the exfoliating massage texture changes to a soft, silky one as you squeeze it.

AHAVA Mineral Hand Cream – $33

This for me is a classic. I love the scent and it’s so moisturizing! Created with Dead Sea minerals, this mineral rich hand cream instantly improves skin’s moisture level. It also smoothes rough, dry skin, and restores suppleness. I’m addicted to the scent FYI!

Free People x Understated Leather Starry Eyed Travel Eye – $40

So this is a vegan leather eye mask that has a removable, non-toxic cooling insert to keep you feeling and looking fresh. This would be great for days or nights where I have those nasty headaches. The adjustable straps offer a comfy fit while the beautiful metallic patchwork keeps you dreaming with the stars!

Summer & Rose Brittany Tote in “Navy” – $54

I’ve never seen anything like this before but it’s adorable and simple! Rope handles, stripes on stripes, and vegan leather, this is a tote where you should reserve a spot in your handbag collection! It also has two pockets, making it easy to carry around your essentials as well as it zips up.  It’s really a cute but especially for the summer season!

CYLO Cobra Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds in “White/Rose Gold”- $40

I’ve actually been looking for a Bluetooth for the past few weeks instead of just using Bluetooth Speaker, so this came at the perfect time! They’re chic and comfy Bluetooth earbuds which came with interchangeable buds. They also include the onboard controls and neck strap which helps you enjoy your music tangle-free.

CUSTOMIZATION 1: ELEMIS Papaya Enzyme Peel – $33

This was one of the customization products that I could choose from two options. I’m a sucker for skincare, so that was a given! This is a rinse-off cream which is made with exfoliating papaya, milk protein, and antioxidant-rich vitamin E that works together to exfoliate and purify tired, lackluster skin.

CUSTOMIZATION 2: Crown Brush 6 Piece Brush Set in “Black + Rose Gold” – $75

This was the second customization that was offered. I have heard of Crown Brushes back when I was in my esthetician program but never had a chance to buy them. They’re made of 100% synthetic bristles, this 6 piece brush set has everything you need to perfect any look! Plus, it’s an easy way to travel with. The brushes include: Powder, blush, concealer, shadow, blending and eyeliner.

Sponsored: ApotheCARE Essentials

This is more of a extra bonus product and hey it’s haircare! I received the Vanilla Argan Oil Sweet Almond Shampoo and COnditioner. It’s refered to as ‘The Replenisher: intense hydration for dry hair”. I also go the Rosehip Oil Geranium Aloe Vera shampoo and conditioner. This one is called “The Booster: dynamic volume for fine + flat hair”.

There you have it folks! Now let me tell you, I don’t think I’d ever cancel this subcription box! As you can see, everything I received in total was more than how much I paid!

ISSE 2014 Haul

Hey Lovies!

I hope everyone is doing great. Sorry for being so MiA, with so many things going on recently I’ve been swamped. From getting sick, family dilemmas to starting work!

So this past weekend January 25-27, the ISSE (International Salon and Spa Expo) 2014 came upon us in the Long Beach Convention Center, CA.    I went on Saturday and felt so overwhelmed (having this be my first time to any such expo) haha. I did some shopping but didn’t break the bank! haha What I love about these expos is that there’s so many discounts and so much to see. Here’s a sneak peak to what I splurged on. 🙂

I always hear so much hype about the Crown Brushes and I had to give it a try! It’s cheap and from what I can tell, its not bad at all. I got the IB132 Stiff Brow Brush. http://www.crownbrush.us/

J.Cat Cosmetics: I never had heard of this company before but when I saw the prices, I was shocked! Some of the products were 3 for $6 or 3 for $9 on other selected products. I got the 3 for $6. http://jcatbeauty.com/

*Roll It Up Auto Lip Liner in “Puce” ( I actually bought it thinking it was a nude eyeliner) But I contacted them and they said it’s perfectly safe to use as an eyeliner. Score!

*Roll It Up Auto Eye Liner in “Bulk Black” Water Resistant

*Flying Solo Eye Shadow in “138 Down Low”

I then got some freebies just buy walking around and random people passing samples out. That’s another great thing about these types of expos. 😀 I got a Poppin Hair Clip, a nail filer on one side and the other side is a mirror and a few hair samples from Amika: Oil Treatment and a Nourishing Mask.

I hope you all liked this haul and I’m looking forward to trying out these products and reviewing them!

Until next time! 🙂
