Spring Essentials--Makeup, Jewelry, Hair, Polish & More

Hey y'all! I hope you had an amazing weekend! After some nasty weather last week, I finally got a chance to enjoy a little bit of spring. Speaking of spring, it's time for another FabFitFun unboxing! If you've been a longtime ElleSees reader, then you've seen me share these before. I've been a sub since the beginning. It's always like a treat in the mail when you get one!

And if you haven't seen one of these, FFF is a subscription box that ships 4 times a year and is stocked with $200+ worth of full-sized products. You pay $49.95 per box. The total value for this box is $369! Let's see what's inside!

First up from MILLY is a water-resistant beach bag. These came in different colors with different sayings. Mine says Beach Please and will be perfect for throwing in a wet swimsuit. I plan on using mine with the kids I nanny for. I can throw their wet clothes or toys in.

I didn't unfold it for the pic, but GYPSY 05 sent a really cool ROUND tie-dye blanket. It looks to me more like a tapestry you'd see at Urban Outfitters, as it has fringe all the way around. I'm keeping my huge blanket in my car for the beach, but I really can't wait to use this for picnics and other outdoor events. These also came in a variety of colors and designs, too.

Nature's Bounty Hair, Skin, Nails Gummies are always good to keep on hand. Have you tried this brand before?

This was an item you got to pick--FFF usually lets you choose a few things in each box--I chose this gorgeous cage bangle from EMERALD DUV.

And now for more beauty stuff! Yay!

Briogeo is a brand I've heard of from past Ipsy bags, and I've always liked what I've tried from them. I got the Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-in Conditioning Spray. It’s lightweight and has good stuff in it like rosehip, argan, and coconut oils. It keeps my hair soft and strong, since it is a heat protectant as well!

Next is a polish duo from Deborah Lipmann. I got a very pale blue and a pastel blue. These are so cute for spring! These varied in color, too!

The Real Her Lip Kit was fun to get. You got to pick the color. I chose red (y'all know me and my reds) but I kind of wish I had picked the dark nude instead. Anyway, lip kits are hugely popular right now, and this one has a lip stick, lip liner, and a liquid lipstick. It's a dark crimson red and lasts for a bit. I love the message behind this one too--see the empowering statements on each product?

Dr. Brandt is a brand I know y'all have heard of before, right? I was so excited to see this one! Dr. Brandt’s Microdermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator has lactic acid, aluminum oxide crystals, and smoothing botanicals, which give softer skin. Really loving this one.

And y'all KNOW I am a mask fanatic. I got a 5 pack from Karuna of Hydrating Face Masks. I'm feeling better now, but I was SO sick recently. The meds gave me super dehydrated skin, and popping of these on for a few minutes definitely helped.

So that's what's in my FabFitFun box!! What did you like?

  12. What an amazing selection of products for this box! I am not with FFF mainly because it's pricey after the exchange rate. :-(

  13. I love the sayings on the lip kit! This looks like it was a great box!

  14. this box seems very good

  15. Every time I see your post on this box, it makes me want to subscribe! You get some really fun things in it. I love that Beach pouch!

  16. These boxes are all the rage, aren't they? I see them EVERYWHERE!

  17. I got the same round towel as you and I love the blue tie-dye!! I wish I had selected the bracelet and not the earrings. I also got the blue/white polish and LOVE it and have already worn it. Oh, and I wish I had gone with the nude or pink on the lipstick kit. It's a little too bold for me, but will look nice with a black dress for a night out!


  18. This looks like a fantastic box! I am interested in what the nude Real Her lip kit looks like. I like the beach bag and tye dye blanket for the beach! Can't wait to hit the beach this summer!

  19. Hmm oooo that Dr Brandt exfoliator sounds really good. I need something like this. And a good price point too.

  27. My coworker gets the box and she doesn't do red lips so she gave me her kit which was so nice! This box had a lot of great stuff. I love the nail polish!
