My life is pretty dull. I play with a toddler, watch a lot of Yo Gabba Gabba and experiment with the crock pot. I have no bed time and I find humor in Laffy Taffy jokes. Conan O'Brien is my anti-drug.

The Subscription Box to End All - the VIP.





So, I love getting fun presents in the mail. And I also love spending some dinero on myself for frivolous things. But I can't always justify dropping $30 on a moisturizer that I don't know if I'll even enjoy, especiallly being a stay-at-home-mom. Being a mom ruins things, ya know? When I heard about this new(er) quarterly delivery service curated by Giuliana Rancic(!!!!) that focuses both on health and beauty and pampering and all things lovely, I was twitterpated.

The box is the fabfitfun VIP box, and is $49.99 each. Pricey? Kinda, in theory. But wait until you see just what I got when I opened said box.


Drumroll...


Wow.


Clockwise, starting at top: Ivory Mason Sunglasses (valued at $135), KIND bar (around $2), Infinity Sun Glow on the Go ($35) - are we catching a trend yet? For $50, the first three things are already totaling almost $175.


Evian Brumisateur Facial Spray ($12), Purlisse-Pur-Delicate Cleanser ($36), Yes to Cucumbers Towelletes ($3)


It Hair Surf Spray ($7), Catalina Su Lip Gloss ($14) and finally Orly nail polish ($8.50)

I'm going to be honest... I haven't had a chance to try everything. The eyeglasses are a little small for my face but I have a friend who I know has been looking for shades for a while. I may just surprise her with these ultra-trendy specs and see if she loves them as much as I do. The KIND bar? It was gone in about 20 seconds. I'd never tried KIND bars before, but now I'm hooked. I went out and bought a box from Target the next day. The Catalina Su gloss is amazeballs. It's a little frosted but the perfect nude shimmer for summer. The Purlisse-Pur cleanser is so gentle and smells delicately feminine and unassuming. That sounds mega pretentious, but it's true. I'm a big fan. I threw the Yes to Cucumber wipes in my overnight bag because I always forget to bring makeup remover when I travel.

My final thoughts? While $49.99 seems steep, it's under $200 a year for what could potentially be $800-$1200 worth of products.

Yeah. Worth it. Check out the VIP box for yourself. Seriously. Go. Right now. GO!

I received this fabfitfun VIP box free to review, but my opinions are 110% mine and I was under absolutely no obligation to boast. If you like pretty things, you definitely need to check this subscription box out.
