FabFitFun Unboxing ~ Fall 2016

Subscription boxes are intriguing to me and I love to watch people unbox them on YouTube.  After I saw the contents of the fall FabFitFun box, I knew I had to have one!  (You can watch my unboxing here.)

Blanket scarves are on trend right now and I love that one was included in the box.  I don't wear a lot of black, but with the white and grey colors mixed in, I think I can make it work.

I'm loving eye shadow palettes at the moment and this Pure Cosmetics Nude Collection palette is very promising.  I love the neutral colors and the mix of shimmer and matte shades.  The BrowGal  gel eyebrow wand was also included in the box and I know that it will be put to good use.

With fall here and a switch to day shift at my job, this coffee tumbler will definitely hold my cinnamon hazelnut coffee in style.  I'm not a morning person, so the saying is rather ironic!

This Spongelle sponge comes loaded with cleanser and is multi-use.  This will be handy on those mornings that I am running late for work.

These adult coloring books are all the rage, but I can't seem to get into them.  I will be gifting this to my sister.

I love essential oils and was happy to see this lavender oil in the box.  It comes in a nice glass bottle that will be pretty to display.

These ToeSox will be great when doing yoga.  I have carpet and always have a problem sliding around when trying to hold a pose.  The grippers on the bottom will keep me in my place.

Since I've reached my fifties, my skin has gone downhill.  This restoring night serum from Skin Laundry may be able to help.

Cottonelle and Secret products are always welcome at my home.

I thought this was a great box for $49.99.  FabFitFun is a quarterly subscription box with over $100 worth of items that could be about beauty, fitness or fashion .You can order your own box here:  FabFitFun  I don't know how long this fall box will be available, but this link will give you a discount on whatever box you decide to get (I also receive credits when you sign up through my link).

Target Beauty Box Unboxing ~ October 2016

I finally was able to snag a Target Beauty Box, thanks to My Subscription Addiction!  They will email you when the box goes live on Target's website, so you can be sure to run to the site and grab one while you can.  They sell out super fast!

I love that it comes with a $3 coupon off of beauty products.  It only is good for a couple of weeks, so I'll have to keep that in mind and not let it expire.

I have been loving the in-shower body lotions, so am excited about this product.  It's for use on wet skin after your shower, not in the shower.  I am hoping it will lock in some moisture for my overly dry skin.

I am a lip balm fanatic, so am so happy to receive this Chapstick.  It's tinted, so it will be great to keep in my truck for those days I'm running errands.

I love to try new-to-me products and this cushion foundation looks like a great one to try.  I like that they sent three different colors so that you can hopefully find one close to your complexion to try.

This next set is a shampoo and conditioner with a great peppermint scent.  I'm going to save these for use in December, as that is the time of year that I love the smell of peppermint.  Really happy to see both the shampoo and conditioner!

That was everything in this month's box and I am so glad I was able to snag one.  I think it's a great value for only $7!  I am still waiting on my Fall Walmart Beauty Box, as it also usually packs a big punch and it's only $5.  

Take a look at my unboxing video.  Do you purchase the Target or Walmart beauty boxes?
