A new season is here and I’m kicking it off with my FabFitFun Fall 2021 unboxing and review! Spoiler alert! This season’s box is chock full of useful items! Let’s unbox!
FabFitFun Fall 2021
Golden Rabbit Small Cobalt Swirl Dutch Oven (2.5 Quart) – Retail Value $44
As soon as I saw this blue and white Dutch oven as a customization option this season, I knew I had to have it!
I wanted it so badly for two reasons.
- It’s exceptionally cute!!
- I didn’t have a Dutch oven and wanted to add one to my pots and pans collection
This Dutch oven makes me think of cozy things like fuzzy socks and warm soup in the fall! I haven’t made any soup in mine yet, but it’s on my to-do list!
I did recently use this pot to make some rice and may or may not have burnt a little food on the bottom. Whoopsie!
Let’s hope I don’t do the same when it comes time to make soup!
Uncommon James Cheeseboard – Retail Value $60
Charcuterie is still all the rage, so of course, I couldn’t say no to adding another cheese board to my small (but growing) collection.
Parker’s (my sweet pup) birthday is coming up and I always throw him a little bash. I knew when I saw the Uncommon James Cheeseboard that it would be perfect for serving food at this upcoming party.
Outside of that very specific use case, this cheeseboard can be used for tons of other things too—aside from just cheese.
A few great features of the Uncommon James Cheeseboard include:
- The size. It’s 15″ by 9″
- The weight. It looks and feel extra high quality
Algenist Skincare Complete Eye Renewal Balm – Retail Value $68
If you’ve read my subscription box reviews over the years, then you may remember that eye cream is one of my favorite products to receive in a box. It’s one of those things that you can always use, so I prefer to get it in a box rather than buy it myself at another time.
I originally received the Algenist Skincare Complete Eye Renewal Balm in my box last winter. When I saw it up for grabs again this season, I decided to get it again.
I’m very sensitive to caffeine in eye creams, so I have to pay special attention to ingredients. If not, I’ll have a few sleepless nights after adding a new cream to my beauty routine.
The biggest “pro” for me for that the Algenist Skincare Complete Eye Renewal Balm is that it doesn’t have caffeine in it and is “safe” for me to use at night!
True Moringa Shea & Moringa Balm – Retail Value $24
I use hand cream every night before bed, so I’m always in need of a new tube! As soon as I saw this balm as a customization option, I knew it was the one for me!
Right off the bat, I will say that it’s smaller than I was expecting. I’m sure FabFitFun provided info on the ounces, but I for sure didn’t look at those details. Whoops! Oh, well! No big deal!
This balm is much thicker than I was expecting and is more similar to Aquaphor Healing Ointment than a traditional lotion or hand cream. It’s very thick! Because of that, I’m going to save it for the winter months when my hands are really dry and in serious need of some TLC.
ELEMIS Papaya Enzyme Peel – Retail Value $45
I’ve heard incredible things about ELEMIS from several different sources over the years, so I’ve always been intrigued by the brand. When I saw the ELEMIS Papaya Enzyme Peel was an option this season, I jumped on it!
With all the mask-wearing I do these days, I’ve been trying to do a better job of keeping my face clean, removing dead skin, etc.
I’ve used the ELEMIS Papaya Enzyme Peel twice now, and have been really pleased with it! My skin has been reacting really well—minimal tingling when applied and no redness or irritation afterward. I’ve also noticed an immediate difference in texture, which I’m very happy about!
Benefit The POREfessional Pore Minimizing Primer – Retail Value $32
I have been using POREfessional makeup primer off and on for about eight years. Every now and then, I’ll get wild and try something new. I always come back to POREfessional though. It’s my tried and true.
What do I love about it?
- The primer itself is a light beige color. It doesn’t add any real color coverage to my face but blends nicely. Other pore-minimizing primers I’ve tried are white and don’t blend well at all. They end up leaving a white cast like some sunscreens do.
- The feel. I love how smooth my skin looks and feels after applying this primer.
There you have it! My FabFitFun Fall 2021 box! This box has a total retail value of $273.
Overall, I’m very pleased with each of my items this season and am getting immediate use out of everything I picked!
If you’re not already a subscriber and want to snag next season’s box, I can get you $10 off! What a deal!
