My First Fab Fit Fun Box – Fall 2016 Review

If you haven’t heard of the “FabFitFun Box” yet you might be living under a rock (I’m so sorry to be the bearer of bad news).

Imagine being able to grasp onto the excitement you felt as a child, when you knew the birthday party you were attending meant a loot-bag of unknown goodies. Well this is pretty much the excitement I felt the moment I pressed “confirm” on my fit fab fun box order!

The box was created under the idea that the contents would be selected from a group of women, for women. This is straight from their about page:

FFF aims to motivate, inspire and excite readers with a slew of great, healthy resources for every kind of woman — from the new college student to the new mom. Our content is optimistic, entertaining, cutting edge, often funny, occasionally snarky, and all about instilling confidence and power in women. It’s a way to kickstart your happy and get more from life.

To be honest I had mixed feelings about the whole process. I was leery on the idea of parting with my preciously earned dollars for this mystery package.

The survey you must complete to order your package was probably the most exciting part, besides the actual unboxing of course. They company asks you a short variety of questions with regards to your skin type, sizing and some other quick tid-bits. Right away you get the impression this box will be tailored right to you.

Once you place your order you are promptly given a tracking number which made me as the purchaser feel more comfortable. Whenever I order something to my home I always love knowing exactly when it will arrive.

ModCloth Loch and Key Blanket Scarf – Value $34.99

The scarf may deceive you all rolled up but it really is the definition of “blanket scarf” measuring 55 by 55 inches. I am always worried about these scarves being itchy. However, this scarf is very soft, not at all itchy and 100% acrylic.

The scarf is lightweight even though it is so large. This allows you to style it in different ways without worries of bulkiness. The booklet they include in the packaging also shows you some different ways to tie the scarf which is extremely helpful!

The BrowGal Brow Gel – Value $20

OKAY LADIES WE NEED TO TALK! This was my all time favorite product in the bunch. I now can honestly say that I use it every day! Sometimes my brows get a little, well, out of control.
