Beauty, Style, and Me-Time in a Box

By Lauren Barth |

These days, Mama has no time for herself… and by Mama, I mean moi. Me, myself, and I. Yours Truly. This girl. (Insert hand-raising emoji.) I’m starved for quality me-time—not to mention a facial and a manicure. And as for some fun lighthearted trend-hunting and shopping? Um, yeah… Maybe next month.

My two little ones dominate my days and that’s fine by me. But I could still use a little pampering fun and some stylish inspiration to brighten my busy days doin’ the mom hustle.

Enter the FatFitFun subscription box! When this baby showed up at my door, I giddily jumped up and down like a tween at a boy-band concert. Who needs to make time for shopping the mall when the latest trends can come right to your doorstep?!

Of course, I wasn’t the only one excited to see the FedEx man arrive with our delivery. Little P was pumped to check out was inside this pretty pink box. (A girl after my own heart!)

Suffice to say, neither one of us was disappointed. Inside my spring FatFitFun box of joy:

  • RealHer Lip Kit
  • Milly Zip Pouch (bikini bag)
  • Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray
  • Luv AJ Crawler Earring Set  -or-  Emerald Duv Cuff (I got the cuff and I love it!)
  • Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish Set
  • Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant
  • Karuna Hydrating Face Mask
  • Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin and Nails Gummies
  • Gypsy 05 Roundie

This Milly zip pouch might be my favorite new accessory. It’s great for housing wet bikinis at the beach or for toting makeup or for traveling or for just about anything. (Plus, I’m really into sassy graphic statements!) A duo of pretty Deborah Lippmann nail polishes helped me get that much needed manicure (even if the first coat was applied with a shaky toddler hand); and the Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion skin exfoliant was exactly what my tired skin needed after a week of 5 AM baby-alarm-clock wake-up calls. It rejuvenated my tired, dull complexion and gave me an instant glow—and the invigorating fragrance was equally refreshing! Speaking of a renewed “glow,” these Karuna Hydrating cloth Face Masks are so hydrating and soothing. (Bonus: I got to scare my kids with my scary mask face!)

The RealHer lip kit features a liquid lipstick, gloss, and pencil in a rich, vampy and intense shade of magenta-red. It’s a little dark for my skin tone (and I tend to gravitate to shiny textures and nude hues anyway!), but it will definitely come in handy for a sexy night out in a LBD. I’ll accessorize my snazzed-up look with this fabulous new Emerald Duv Cuff—that is, IF my little lady ever takes it off her own wrist.

I can’t wait to see how my hair and nails shine and grow with a little long-term help from my new Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin, and Nails Gummies. It make take a few weeks or so to work its magic, but at least my former rat-nest hair is now smooth and knot-free thanks to the Briogeo Rosarco Milk conditioning spray. I especially love that it doesn’t contain harsh ingredients or chemicals.

Finally, my versatile tie-dye Gypsy 05 Roundie is my new spring obsession. It’s part picnic blanket, part coverup, part shawl… My roundie, a glass of rosé, and some of my new FabFitFun beauty products, and I had the makings of a perfect spring afternoon. Who knew?! The me-time I craved came in a box! And I never had to step foot out my front door.
