FabFitFun Spring 2020 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Spring is here and so is this season’s FabFitFun box! Follow along below as Parker (my pup) helps me review the FabFitFun Spring 2020 box!

FabFitFun Spring 2020 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

FabFitFun Spring 2020 Review

Parker’s first impression, “This sweater really is one size fits all!”

My first impression, “What a colorful box of goodies!”

It’s been almost two years since I received my last FFF box, so I’m pumped to dive into this one!

Ribbed Cardigan from FFF Spring 2020

Donni – Ribbed Sweater Coat – Retail Value $99

After seeing quite a few ads for this seasons’ box, I decided to subscribe because there were a few items that really caught my eye! One of those items is this cardigan. I LOVE cardigans and wear them all the time, so of course, I had to have this one.

This sweater is marked as one size fits all, which I don’t think is entirely true. While the sweater does technically fit, it doesn’t fit well enough to wear out on the town. It’s quite baggy on me, so I’ll only be wearing it inside my apartment. With that being said, I’ve been living in this cardigan since I received it, especially as I’ve been working from home for the last two weeks.

Calpak Packing Cubes from FFF Spring 2020

Calpak – Packing Cubes in Tutti Fruity – Retail Value $40

These packing cubes are another reason I decided to subscribe this season. I just couldn’t resist the adorable citrus pattern! It’s just too cute!

I have a trip planned for this May, and you better believe I’ll be packing these cuties in my suitcase! This set comes with three cubes sizes, which I think will help a lot with my suitcase organization but will probably not help with my tendency to overpack!

Reusable Straws from FFF Spring 2020

Chic & Tonic – Silicone Straws – Retail Value $15

The third and final item that convinced me to get this season’s box. How cheery and cute are these silicone straws?! If I were to describe these in one word, it would be “happy!”

This set comes with four straws, a brush for cleaning, and a carrying case. I’ve been using these straws nonstop over the last few weeks and don’t see that changing anytime soon — mainly because of how cute they look in my sparkling water!

Weight Sleep Mask from FFF Spring 2020

Gravity – Weighted Sleep Mask – Retail Value $39.99

After subscribing, I saw that this weighted sleep mask was one of my customization options and couldn’t resist selecting it. I have trouble sleeping sometimes, so I love trying new things that may help!

Weighted blankets are all the rage these days, so before taking the plunge and purchasing one, I figured I’d get my feet wet with the sleep mask first.

I sleep on my stomach or on my side most of the time, which is not ideal when it comes to using this mask. The mask will work much better for back sleepers. For me, I’ll have to take it with me the next time I go on a trip. It may work well as I lean my head back and try to sleep on an airplane.

Four Beauty Products from FFF Spring 2020

Here come the beauty products!

AG Hair – Fast Food Leave-On Conditioner – Retail Value $24

I use leave-in conditioner every night after I shower, so I was very pleased to see this product in my box. I’ve been using it every single night for the last few weeks and have been liking it quite a bit.

I probably won’t repurchase because my usual leave-in is a little cheaper, but I will definitely finish this entire tube.

Pürlisse – Watermelon Energizing 2 Minute Polishing Peel – Retail Value $35

This is another item that just screams “happiness” to me! The watermelon packaging is bright and cheerful and actually makes me think of summertime. It smells like watermelon candy too, which is another fun touch!

Unfortunately, the peel does not agree with my skin. I used it twice, and both times, I had a lot of breakouts to deal with. That’s not fun, but what will be fun is gifting this to one of my (less skin sensitive) friends!

This Works – Deep Sleep Body Cocoon – Retail Value $40

Like I mentioned above, I absolutely love trying “sleepytime” items. I use quite a few of the Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy sleep items already, so this cream is right up my alley!

I’ve been using it on my arms and legs a few nights a week and have been loving how calming the scent is. It’s the perfect blend of lavender and vetivert. The consistency is great too!

Jabonería Marianella – Imperial Jade Body Oil – Retail Value $68

Last but not least, we have a body oil! I’m going to be honest with you and tell you that I have not tried this product yet. Parker (my pup) has a thing for licking my legs when I apply lotions and such, and I haven’t worked up the energy to fend him off as I apply this one.

Now, you may be wondering why I’m able to apply the body cocoon above and not the oil. Well, the body cocoon I apply while I’m in bed and under the covers (a place where his tongue can’t reach). The oil I would need to apply in the bathroom, and I just know that he would be ALL over me! That’s being said. I will do my best to try this product soon!

FabFitFun Spring 2020 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

All in all, I would say the FabFitFun Spring 2020 box was pretty great! I paid around $40 for this box, which has a total retail value of $361. That’s not too shabby at all!

Do you subscribe to FabFitFun? If so, what do you think of your Spring 2020 box?

If you’re not already a subscriber and want next season’s box, I can get you $10 off! What a deal!

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2019 Review

A new season is here, so you know what that means — it’s time for my POPSUGAR Must Have summer 2019 review! As usual, POPSUGAR did not disappoint with a box full of summery goodness! From sunscreen and beach hats to beauty products and candy, let’s dive in!

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2019

Box contents:

  • Seafolly – Bronte Sunglasses in Blush
  • Tofino – The Mathea Towel
  • Julep – Creme-to-Powder Eyeshadow Stick in Champagne Shimmer
  • Brooklyn Hat Co. – Palm Fiber Safari Hat
  • Tarte – Rainforest of the Sea Mermaid Skin Hyaluronic H2O Serum
  • Hint – Sunscreen and Sunstick
  • Candy Club – Lemonade Straws
  • Nair – Leg Mask

Seafolly – Bronte Sunglasses in Blush – Retail Value $99

Summer isn’t complete without a fun, new pair of sunnies! Subscribers were given the option of blush or blue for these sunglasses. I went with blush and am very happy with my choice!

This style is quirky and so different from the classic aviators I usually wear. However, I love them! I wore them on the 4th of July this year and received a ton of compliments. I’ll definitely be taking these cuties on my annual summer beach trip coming up next month.

Tofino – The Mathea Towel – Retail Value $64.99

This is another item that POPSUGAR let subscribers choose the pattern of this month. I chose polka dots (my favorite) over the tribal print option.

The tassels on this beach towel are what sets it apart! How cute is that detail?! I’ll definitely be packing this towel for my annual beach trip as well!

Julep – Creme-to-Powder Eyeshadow Stick in Champagne Shimmer – Retail Value $18

If you’re a longtime reader, then you know that Julep was my first foray into subscription boxes. I subscribed for years and loved each product I received, including their eye shadow sticks. I received this eye shadow stick and a few others several years back and loved them then just like I do now.

Champagne shimmer shadows are my everyday go-to, so I’ve been getting tons of use out of this eye shadow stick over the last few weeks and will continue to do so until it’s all gone!

Brooklyn Hat Co. – Palm Fiber Safari Hat – Retail Value $55

I’m not usually a hat wearer but this hat has tempted me! I’ll be packing it for my annual beach vacation as well, so we’ll have to see how it like it after taking it for a spin on and around the beach!

If all else fails, it makes for very cute wall decor! Don’t you think?

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2019 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Tarte – Rainforest of the Sea Mermaid Skin Hyaluronic H2O Serum – Retail Value $42

Another thing you’ll know if you’ve been reading for a while is that I love Tarte products! I use quite a few in my everyday beauty routine and have tried tons more over the years after receiving them in various subscription boxes.

I’ve been using this serum several times a week for the last few weeks and have not noticed a difference in my skin. My skin has not been breaking out (which is fantastic!), so I will continue to use the serum for a bit longer to see if I notice a difference.

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2019 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Hint – Sunscreen and Sunstick – Retail Value $17.99 and $9.99

A summer subscription box isn’t complete without sunscreen! I’m not complaining though. This fair-skinned girl appreciates any and all sunscreen that she can get her hands on!

Hint’s pineapple scented sunscreen did not disappoint! It smells INCREDIBLE and works well too! Along with pineapple, their line also has a grapefruit scent, which intrigues me quite a bit. I hate eating grapefruit, but I love them smell!

Along with a lot of the other products above, I’ll be taking this sunscreen on my upcoming beach trip as well!

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2019 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Candy Club – Lemonade Straws – Retail Value $8.50

Lemonade candy? YUM! I love sour straws, so I was extremely excited when I found these in my box. I finished the container a little bit before writing this post, which is a little sad, so I may just have to look into a candy subscription with Candy Club. How fun would that be?!

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2019 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Nair – Leg Mask – Special Extra

It’s been years since I’ve used Nair instead of shaving my legs. I gave this product a try on my calves the other night and was pleasantly surprised by the outcome. After ten minutes, my calves were mostly hair free.

This leg mask works well, but I used almost the whole bottle just on my calves. I’m not sure how much larger the full-size version is, but I imagine I wouldn’t be able to get more than two or three full uses out of it.

For convenience sake, I think I’ll stick to shaving. After all, it only takes a few minutes to shave my legs as opposed to 10 minutes waiting for Nair to work.

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2019

This season’s box had a total retail value of over $315, which is over 3x what I paid for it! What a deal!

My favorite items are the sunglasses, beach towel, and the candy!

I can’t wait to see what next season’s box holds!
