FabFitFun Summer 2019 Add-Ons and Mystery Bundles!

I am very much the type of person that buys crap ton of stuff when my mood isn’t so great…..enter FabFitFun add-on sale. I think the combination of wanting new skincare products and feeling kind of crappy led me to my INSANE purchase that I will be sharing today.

I actually think the add-ons and the edit sales are my favorite thing about FabFitFub. I do love their boxes a ton but the access to these sales makes it even more worth my while. As an annual subscriber, I also get early access to the products which is super handy because a lot of them sell out……but actually, if you didn’t know, you can just favorite and item that you want that may have sold out and then check your ‘favorites’ section because more often than not, the item restocks. Sometimes I spend a lot of time refreshing my favorites page if I REALLY want a particular item.

In this case, I bought all of the mystery bundles that FFF had to offer because this was the first time I had seen them offer curated bundles. Normally, it’s just a bundle and you have LITERALLY no idea what is coming in them. This time, they offered 4: Fashionista, Beauty Guru, Fitness Fanatic, Jet Setter. I also got a normal one just for comparison.

Let’s dive in! Check out my unboxing video if you’d like some extra first impression commentary.

Let me first show you some of the items that I got that were not the mystery bundles. These were items I just had to have….because YOLO.

Freaking stunning oversized aviators by Quay. I love the color of these and I think they are the perfect addition to my summer!

The best body scrub and bath bombs I have ever used! Seriously, if I could have purchased more I absolutely would have BUT you can only buy 3 of any item.

Mystery Bundle for the Jet Setter

  1. Snuggie Travel Blanket/Pillow:
    • I absolutely love that this is included in this bundle. I am traveling soon and I often wish I had a pillow BUT I am too cheap to buy one itself. Now I have a double whammy pillow/blanket combo.
  2. JetSet & Go Travel Pouch:
    • This is such a cute summery print. Since my little man will be accompanying me, I will certainly have a bunch of crap to tote around and this will be a great way to organize.
  3. Ahava Body Lotion (3):
    • My skin definitely gets super dry and I love that there is a set of 3 in this bundle. This makes transporting my lotion simple and I think this might even be a good size to carry on the plane!

I think overall this is a great little travel bundle. Everything seems ‘in style/current’ and I think it fits in the curation really well. I will get use out of each product.

Mystery Bundle for the Beauty Guru

  1. Mother Dirt Cleanser for Face and Body:
    • I am started to get overwhelmed with washes! I normally wouldn’t reach for something that can be used on my face AND body so I will probably just use this for my body – my face tends to be pretty sensitive. I am definitely excited this is included but it might be a bit before I use it!
  2. Ahava Mineral Mud Mask:
    • This is such a weird mud mask. When you put it on, it has an iridescent green color to it which is out of the norm for a mud mask. It was nice enough on my skin but I didn’t notice any real difference that it is supposed to accomplish, specifically brightness or hydration. It didn’t dry out my skin but I didn’t really notice it did anything to my face.
  3. Marrakesh Argan Oil:
    • Again, this is something that I have somehow began piling up. I have seen this used as hair oils but since my hair is easily weighed down, I definitely wont be using this for that. It says it can be used for body/face so that might be a nice addition for some boosted hydration..although I don’t usually use oils on either!

Overall, I think this is a good box for a beauty guru. I hope that each product will be good for my sensitive skin but in general, if you want to try out some skincare products, this might be a decent bundle. I wish it included makeup BUT skincare is important too.

Mystery Bundle for the Fitness Fanatic

  1. Skinvolve Body Cream:
    • I guess this is ‘fitness’ because it has the word karate in it. It boasts caffeine for extra energy and toning. It is always nice to have some extra skin hydration after a nice shower after you’ve had a good workout.
  2. Athleisure Clothes Wash:
    • This states that it handles odors in clothes. Again, I guess this is good after a nice ol sweaty workout.
  3. Easy Soothing Facial Mist:
    • Ugh. This is just frustrating. A skin mist is not what I think of when I think of fitness. It sounds nice but I don’t know how this will boost my fitness game.

I’ll be real. I think this bundle sucks. I have gotten a random mystery bundle that was more geared towards FITNESS than this – it included resistance bands, roll on muscle oil for sore muscles, and a tote I think. This has nothing that screams fitness to me. What do y’all think?

Mystery Bundle for the Fashionista

  1. Summer & Rose Earrings:
    • These are cute gold dangle earrings which I think I can pair with almost anything in my wardrobe….the only thing I don’t like about them is that they have some weird color discoloration on the flat circular coin part of the earring. I’m not sure what metal they are actually made of BUT they are cute regardless.
  2. Scarf:
    • I am annoyed this is included. One thing I wish FFF did is stayed current with the seasons. Like I have so many freaking scarves and this is so thick that I definitely can’t use it until fall or winter. It’s good but it’s nothing special.
  3. Sunglasses:
    • These are freaking hideous on my face. I hate the shape…but they seem like nice enough quality. I just won’t wear them. Ever.

I hate this bundle and I don’t think it is very fashion forward. I don’t really have anything good to say about it unfortunately.

LET’S END THIS ON A POSITIVE NOTE!

These are the items that I also purchased outside of the mystery bundles. I am absolutely in love with the tanning products – they have such a natural looking tan coloration and the foam formula is great when I applied it with the mit that came with each. I highly recommend. The Kate Somerville cleanser is amazing of course! And I have never had anything from Beauty Blender before so this will be great to use!

Final Thoughts

Here is a pic of the final lineup. You might notice that there is an unwrapped mystery bundle…..because it was a repeat of my last mystery bundle haul. I feel like it was a fun experience to see the curated bundles but honestly, I don’t think they were anything special. I much prefer the things I purchased aside from that.

I think the add-on sales and edit sales are definitely worth having the FabFitFun subscription in general. The discounts are always amazing and there are amazing brands on there every freaking time. It always gets me in trouble.

Did you guys get anything? Are you interested in a FabFitFun subscription? I have a referral link ($10 off) AND I have 5 starter boxes which are always freaking amazing – all you do is pay for the shipping and then you can cancel if you don’t want the actual subscription (the shipping is like $5 and gives you about $75 in products I believe). Just let me know down below!

As always, thanks so so much for reading! I truly appreciate it. Til next time!

A HUGE Mystery Box

Alright you guys I have to admit something – I LOVE TO BUY THINGS (as if you couldn’t have already guessed). I have done a review of Bombay & Cedar before and I actually like them for the most part. As with any box, some things aren’t going to be for everyone and I am totally cool with that BUT I saw they were having a mystery box sale and I had to have it!!

I ended up cancelling my subscription with them just because I wanted to move some money around and get some new things. That being said, I purchased their LARGEST mystery box to make up for my sadness of cancelling. This was $74.95 and promised $250 worth of goodies.

Like with my Glamour Jewelry Box, I am going to go ahead and unbox this so y’all can see what’s up!

Let’s dive in!

This box is full of so many goodies!!! Can y’all believe this?!

Item One: Kelvin Tools Everyday Multi-Tool – $19.99

So. I can’t say that this is at the top of my list for anything I would want BUT it is practical. Surprisingly, there have been numerous times where I have needed a hammer or level or screw driver. This is where this little tool thing comes into play! This has like a million screwdriver attachment heads inside of a flip open area, a hammer head, a level, and a flashlight. It’s everything you need in one tool. I guess that’s cool, right? **DUD**

Item Two: Doc Spartan Man Scrub – $14.99

Well I’m not a man, so…..I’m not going to try this out 😂 **DUD**

Item Three: Ello Devon 20oz Glass Tumbler – $12.99

I love water bottles. This one is different than others I have because it’s a glass combo with a straw! That’s a cool feature. It seems high quality and is very pretty!

Item Four: Marrakesh Kahm Smoothing Treatment – $20.99

This is actually something I got in a previous box from Bombay and Cedar so I’m not too thrilled to see it again. That being said, it’s a nice hair treatment. It’s light weight and lightly scented. It also seems to have a decent effect on my frizz so that’s nice too. Since it’s a repeat of something I’ve gotten before, I’m going to consider this a **DUD**

Item Five: True Clutch True2Go Handle – $4.98

This is cool I guess – I can’t say I have anything like it. I’m always clipping stuff to my diaper bag and I think I have a nice water bottle that’ll fit this……if I didn’t have a diaper bag, I’m not sure this would be useful though.

Item Six: O.R.G. Oxygen Cleanser (Deluxe Travel Size) – $5.00

This is actually a great cleanser. I got a full size from a mystery bundle from FabFitFun and I love it. The little bubbles this makes really feels like it’s cleaning your face.

It’s so tiny! I’ve got a big face so this is like one and done.

Item Seven: Herb and Orchard Ready-Made Water Infusion – $8.99

This is a cute idea for flavoring water. I have to say I don’t actually like to drink flavored water so this is wasted on me, but if you’re the type that does then this would be a nice thing to get I guess! Lemon and mint sounds very refreshing.

Item Eight: Clayer Muscle & Joint Pain Relief – $15.99

This thing throws me for a loop! I guess it’s like a clay mask for your sore muscles. It’s a cool concept I supposed but I don’t know how clay would benefit you more than something like a gel. Maybe it refreshed your skin too? *DUD*

Item Nine: Beanfields Pico De Gallo Bean Chips – $3.19

I hate beans. Like no part of this sounds appealing to me and the thought of eating this makes me have serious flash backs to how sick bean scent would make me when I was pregnant. **DUD**

Item Ten: Eat, Drink, and Be Gorgeous by Esther Blum – $17.45

Another repeat for me. This book is super informational if you want natural remedies for things like bone health, sinus infections, lady issues. I don’t mind getting this at all but I don’t need two copies. **DUD**

Item Eleven: The Legend of Me by Alexis Lampley – $4.00

You guys. Why would anyone want this? I’ll be honest, my past is not something I want to write down in pages for Lord knows who to read (I’m adopted from white trash people in Tennessee) but like even if I didn’t have that whole back story, why the hell would I want this? I’m not ten. I might keep it as like a cute keepsake to fill out for my kiddo but when he’s older he probably will be like ‘mom, what the hell am I supposed to do with this?’. **DUD**

Item Twelve: Essential Oils Storage Bag – $unknown

This is actually cute and super practical. I have gained a cute little stash of essential oils from Target (cue the essential oil brand snobs who judge for not having the nice ones) and I literally have been throwing then into random places. Now I will have a cute little organizer!

See! It’s super cute!

Item Thirteen: Kitsch Palm Print Microfiber Hair Towel – $23.00

This actually works really well. It’s easy to use and surprisingly absorbent! This will hands down be my new hair towel. The only thing that I find a little strange is the color – it looks pretty with the palms but the background looks like it was washed with a red piece of clothing and the dye bled. But no one is going to see me using it anyways so no biggie.

Item Fourteen: LM Organics No. 12 Oatmeal Colloidal Bath Soak – $24.00

Lord. You guys. Don’t use this unless you have: A) a decent sized tea bag or something similar -OR- B) Drain-o. No joke. This clogs up your tub for real. Maybe I’m stupid for just throwing it in the tub (that’s a real possibility) but this took me two value sized jugs of Drain-o. **DUD**

Items Fifteen and Sixteen: They Have No Prices Listed…

MY FAVORITE THING!! I seriously wish Bombay and Cedar just had an essential oil subscription! These smell so fresh and uplifting. The comfort has lavender notes while the cleanse has lemony notes. Definitely my two favorite scents right there!

Item Seventeen: Elly Preston Necklace – $This is Getting Annoying but I found it Here for $10

This is a long ass necklace. It’s kind of a bronze finish with pretty purple stones and a feather detail. It looks nice and sturdy and pretty simple.

Item Eighteen: I have no idea what the hell this is – $?????

Y’all. I don’t even know how to review this because I’m so lost. I tried to look it up but what do you even type in?!?! It’s a scoop….I think…for Lord knows what. So. Yeah. **DUD**

Item Nineteen: Airomé Medium Diffuser – $35 (maybe)

I love this too! This diffuser has such beautiful lights and 2 modes for the mists which is cool because I don’t have one like that. It’s super simple to operate and comes with its own little plastic measuring cup to pour water in!

Item Twenty: Blingsting First Aid Clutch – $24.99

Now this is something I will definitely use. It’s such a pretty take on a first-aid kit. I want to buy a million of these and always be fashionable. It has a pretty rose gold metallic case and a good amount of supplies in there! Love it!

So there is the final lineup! Out of 20 items, 9 things were duds in my opinion – either because I already have it or I have no use for it. Determining the value of this box is difficult for two main reasons: I couldn’t find the price and there was no supplemental info to tell me. What I could find added up to about $246 which doesn’t include like 5 products or so SO technically the value is there….. but it’s not the best unboxing I’ve ever had.

Anyways, we will keep seeing what else I can find for things to review! Thanks for reading 💙

Til next time!
