Fab Fit Fun- Spring 2015 Box

I love a subscription box just as much as the next girl, and I have to say that I love Fab Fit Fun! This is currently the only subscription box I subscribed to. 

Fab Fit Fun is a seasonal box that is $49.99 a quarter or $179.99 a year. I bulked a little bit at the price tag, but the value of the boxes are amazing and you get full size products. Also, I like that Fab Fit Fun is not just a beauty box, they send a variety of products. They also include a card with product information and price, which I like.

So, what did I get?

Jules Smith Scarf- A favourite design with celebrities, this scarf is lightweight and perfect for the spring. The splash of colour will be perfect for some of my work outfits or pair well with jeans for a weekend look.
Value $42
Cosmos Creations Premium Puffed Corn in Salted Caramel (sponsored)- Fab Fit Fun will included some sponsored items to offset the cost of the box. Said to be gluten-free, made without GMO corn, and with all-natural ingredients. Salted caramel is one of my all-time favourite flavours, so I can't wait to try this!
Value: $1.49
Merriweather 3 DVD Set "Intense Body Blast" and $25 gift card- This is a full body workout that takes basic high intensity interval training and combines it with Pilates (which I love). Each DVD is a different level of difficulty and the run roughly 30-40 minutes. I'm really looking forward to using these!! The $25 gift card, which I likely won't use, can be used towards one of over 500 products.
Value: $61
OFRA Cosmetics Eyeshadow Brush Duo (#11 and #20)- I have had the same makeup brushes for years and I'm slowly replacing them with different brushes that I've gotten from subscription boxes. Brush #11 is for eyeshadow application and brush #20 is for concealer or liquid foundation.
Value: $45.90
Yasi Metallic Flash Tattoos-  A variety of designs to pick from and perfect for music festivals, or the summer in general. These aren't my personal style or preference, so I may or may not use them. Might be fun to try.
Value: $36
Rifle Paper Co. Cities Coaster Set- First of all, the box they came in is really pretty and the coasters themselves- featuring New York, London, Tokyo and Paris- are super cute! 
Value: $16
Sprout It App Card & Miracle Grow Gro-Able Seed Pod- I got the Cilantro seed pod, but there are a ton of different vegetables and herbs available. I love the concept of grow your own stuff, but I do not have a green thumb. This sounds super easy; take the lid off, plant the pod (which is biodegradable). The Sport It App (which is a free download) can be customized to your location, and will provide tips and reminders for gorwing your plant. 
Value $1.49 (pod only)
ORLY Nail Polish in Cake Pop- A "subtle pink creme colour", which I'm not crazy about it. It's a good colour for the tips of a french manicure. I do not like this went on really streaky and I had to apply multiple coats just to cover my nail. Even then, it just looked a 5 year old painted my nails.
Value: $8.50
 Palmetto Derma Collagen Booster and Restoration Serum- This product promises to do what a lot of serums do: increase collagen, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, slow down aging. Does it work? Only time will tell. It has more of a water texture, as compared to other serums, which I liked, and didn't feel heavy or greasy on my skin. This is something I will definitely use.
Value $48
ORLY Nail BB Creme- You know BB creams for your face? This is supposed to be the same thing, but for your nails. It is supposed to "help smooth, moisturize and brighten natural nails". It's not a top coat, base coat and you're not supposed to use it with nail polish. It has a "peachy tint". Does it do what it's supposed to? No idea, but it did add shine to my nails, which I liked. It also went on MUCH better than the other ORLY nail polish. 
Value $15
Total Value:  $273.89 (doesn't included sponsored item)
What a FANTASTIC value!!! I got 9 full size products (plus a sponsored item) and the value is well over what I paid. I won't use every item, but I will use most of them. Plus, I love the variety of types of products included. I can't wait for the Summer 2015 Box!
