Subscription boxes are gaining in popularity, there are thousands of different options out there. There are boxes for everything from clothes to meal kits and everything in-between. Did you know there are many self-care box options? In this new series, I will be reviewing five popular self-care boxes. 

How It Works

Each month I will be reviewing a self-care box. When I receive each box I’ll be doing an unboxing on either my Instagram or the GenTwenty Instagram. Then I will try out the products and write my review.

Each month I will review my overall thoughts of the box, as well as the products. Then at the end of the series, I’ll be writing a big comparison post. I’ll be rating the boxes in categories such as value, packaging, use of products, brand engagement and more. By the end of the series, it is my hope that you’ll find a box that you love that will remind you to take time out of your busy day to take care of you.

The Gift of Self-Care Part 3: February Feeling Fab Review

On their website, Feeling Fab makes it clear that we need to remember to take care of ourselves. Their site states,

“We created Feeling Fab Box to be a monthly reminder that your body and mind need to feel loved and appreciated for their beauty and their selfless service.” 

The box does just that. 

There are two options to start your Feeling Fab journey:

  • The Feeling Fab Mini consists of 4-6 products and costs $21.95 with a value of $55+.
  • The Feeling Fab Premium consists of 7-9 products and costs $29.99 with a value of up to $100.

All of the products that you receive are clean and natural.You’ll also find spiritual growth and stress-reducing tools in each box.

In this post, I’ll specifically be reviewing the February Feeling Fab Mini box.

The Products

In the box, along with the products, I received a list of what the products were and their value. It was nice to have this information and it even included a discount for one of the products. 

Pitta Skin Balancing Treatment Oil by Love Jivana: I don’t think I’ve ever included oils in my skincare routine, so I was excited to try this. I’m pleased to say that I’ll be adding this to my routine now. This product felt really great on my skin and I definitely noticed a difference. This serum is valued at $32.

Cosmetic Sponge Applicator by Illuminati Cosmetics: I actually gifted this product to my sister because I don’t typically wear foundation, highlighter, etc., and when I do it is when she is doing my makeup. From the description, it seems like a great product. It’s Cruelty-Free and Vegan, which is good to know. This product is valued at $21.

LipLocked Priming Up Lip Wands by Manna Kadar: I absolutely loved this product! While I don’t wear a lot of makeup, I’ve always got lipstick on. This was my first time trying lipstick like this. I love how simple and smooth it is to apply. The color was perfect for me. This is the main lipstick that I wear now! I’ll be buying this product again for sure. The lipstick is valued at $24.

Rosa Damascena Flower Water Brightening Mask by Midflower: This was another great product in the Feeling Fab box. It felt refreshing and, just like the name suggests, made my skin brighter. They included a discount for this product, so I’ll be ordering it again. This product was valued at $5.25

February 14-Day Self-Love Challenge by Feeling Fab Box: This was a fun little challenge that was included in the box. Another great reminder to slow down and make time for self-care and self-love.

Not included on the product sheet was a face wipe as well as a deodorant wipe, so I’m assuming those two were something a little extra thrown in.

All together this box is valued at $82.25 and I got it for about $27 (this includes shipping and taxes). I’d say that Feeling Fab is a great deal! Overall I loved this box. I could see myself using each of these products over again. However, it almost feels like a beauty subscription box rather than a self-care box.

In my opinion, it was too many beauty products and not enough self-care products. I’m only judging it from this one box, so not every month could be like this,

My overall rating of the Feeling Fab February box would be a seven out of ten. I loved all of the products. Since I am judging from a self-care point of view, I feel like the variety of products could be different since self-care is so broad. I would definitely order a Feeling Fab box in the future.

What do you think? Have you ever gotten a Feeling Fab box? Stay tuned for the next review.
