How I Used My FabFitFun Box to Make "Feel Better Bags" for Moms

In today's post, I'll tell you about the affordable FabFitFun subscription that contains luxury products that are perfect for moms. Personally, I split the items in my FabFitFun box between myself and friends. I recently used some of items to create Feel Better Bags to share with other moms. Let me tell you about the subscription and then share tips for how I created some Feel Better Bags as random acts of kindness for other moms.

FabFitFun is a subscription box that has always exceeded my expectations. If you only subscribe to one subscription box service, this is the one that you'll want. The way that it works is that you sign up for their quarterly subscription service for $49.99/box and then each box contains a minimum of $200 worth of contents.  The FabFitFun team does an amazing job of curating these boxes. I seriously do a happy dance when my box arrives each quarter!  Let me share some photos of the items from this month's box. (After I show you the items, I'll tell you about the Feel Better Bag trend where moms are creating trendy little gift bags as random acts of kindness for other moms.)

Let's start with the contents of the box that I received this quarter.  It comes in gift-ready packaging since they package everything nicely and wrap it in tissue paper.

I won't lie. The first thing that I do when the box arrives is to quickly open it and sift through the products. It's like Christmas morning. I am so excited that I can't help it.  However, once I sift through the items, I move on to reading the magazine that comes in the box.  This is a nice feature because it discusses all of the products in the box and even provides beauty tips.

Let's discuss the actual items now. I'll start with the Free People x Understated Leather Starry Eyed Travel Eye Mask because this product is from our home state of Texas!  This trendy mask is amazing. You put it into the fridge for about an hour, then place it on your eyes for a while. It feels cool and helps to de-puff the area. It's a nice chemical-free beauty product.

The next product is a trendy Physique 58 Massage Roller. The curators of this box did a fabulous job by finding this product. I've had several massagers over the years, but this is the best one that ever encountered. The reason is that it is not only sturdy, but the handles have a soft foam that makes it comfortable to use. The massage balls are the perfect size for my shoulders, back, legs, and even feet.

Here is a closer view.

The next item is a trendy bracelet from Maya Brenner.  This bracelet looks beautiful if you wear it by itself or pair it with thin bangles to add some contrast.

The No. 14 Super Bloom Candle not only looks beautiful in the copper container, but it also smells amazing. 

The Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion is now my favorite moisturizer that I use before bedtime. I love that it contains Retinol which helps with my fine lines and skin tone. The formula is really nice because it helps to calm my skin at the same time. 

The KNC Beauty All Natural Collagen Infused Lip Mask is a nice treat. The concept is similar to sheet masks, but these trendy masks are specifically for lips.  You leave them on your lips for approximately 20 minutes. They left my lips softer and plumper.  I plan to use these regularly from now on!

The Dove Exfoliating Body Polish contains crushed macadamia and rice milk. I don't always take the time to exfoliate my body like should, so this product was perfect for me.

The Dermelect Cosmeceuticals Makeover Concealing Ridge Filler will change your manicure and pedicure routines. This product is sort of like anti-aging for your nails. You'll use it before you apply your colorful nail polish. 

The ISH Lip Statement Palette offers a dozen trendy lip colors, including:
  • Illuminate
  • Intriguing
  • Intellectual
  • Iconic
  • Sincere
  • Sophisticated
  • Serene
  • Savage
  • Hip
  • Happy
  • Heroic
  • Hawt

This is one of my favorite items in the box because it's fun to try so many different colors. It is nice to wake up in the morning and have so many options of different lip colors to try!

Finally, the Rachel Pally reversible clutch is something that really puts this month's box over-the-top. This trendy bag is stylish and versatile.  

The concept is simple. The clutch is a solid color on one side and a floral pattern on the other. The combination of solid and floral patterns with different fabrics is perfect.  She even included a trendy tassle on the zipper which is popular right now.  The photo below shows the floral pattern for the clutch in my box.

This photo shows the opposite side.

I really like the versatility of the design for this clutch!

Finally, as promised, let me share some ideas for Feel Better BagsThe Feel Better Bag is a trend that has spread quickly throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth metro. The concept is simple.  We all know that being a mom is an amazing experience, but it is sometimes an overwhelming experience at times.  The Feel Better Bags are gifts to cheer moms up when they have a rough day. For instance, surprise a mom with a Feel Better Bag when someone is sick, their child has the flu, their water heater breaks, or any other challenge that life throws at them.  A mom just shares that they are having a rough day in a local Facebook group for moms and then someone drops off a Feel Better Bag for them.  The bag may contain anything from chocolate to candles. FabFitFun subscriptions are a great way to fill the Feel Better Bags!  As shown above, the FabFitFun boxes are packed with unique and trendy items that moms love.  Here are a few examples of bags that I put together in order to cheer up other moms.

The first includes the KNC Beauty All Natural Collagen Infused Lip Masks with the ISH Lip Statement Palette. 

The next is the Free People x Understand Leather Starry Eyed Travel Mask with the Physique 57 Massage Roller.

Finally, the Rachel Pally Reversible Clutch by itself is a lovely gift for a Feel Better Bag.

In summary, I am a big fan of FabFitFun because they curate boxes that are packed with trendy items for an affordable price. I love the items for myself. I also love that they are great for gifts too!    If you would like to try FabFit Fun, visit them here.
