It’s no surprise that beauty subscription box services are totally in right now—who doesn’t love a monthly care package delivered to your door each month? Filled with the latest, smartest items in beauty and lifestyle, FabFitFun is another serious contender to consider adding to your monthly subscription lineup—and their Summer 2014 box doesn’t disappoint.
For the price of only $50 (valued at over a whopping $240), you’ll receive 11 full-size beauty and lifestyle items handpicked by the FabFitFun team, plus various coupons and gift cards. Interested in learning more? From the stash, we’ve narrowed down the supply to our Top 5 favs!

POPchips (in Sour Cream and Onion)$1.39 per single-serve bag
Let’s be honest—snacking during the summer is practically inevitable. While attending cookouts and barbeques, you’ll reach for something salty to go along with your burger or hotdog, and while venturing out on long road trips, your stomach will growl greedily for a snack between bathroom stops. So instead of reaching for that bag of boring fried chips, try the low-calorie and healthier, popped alternative, POPchips! Our Summer 2014 box came with the Sour Cream and Onion flavor (a personal favorite), and we savored every airy, light, crispy bite. At only 100-130 calories per bag and packed with flavor, feel free to shamelessly snack away (and prepare to share).
Zoya
Zoya Nail Polish (in Thandie) – $9 per bottle
Being the nail polish lover that I am, I couldn’t resist trying out the Zoya nail polish from the box first. Used by professionals across the country, this vegan-friendly formula is not only long-lasting, but is even safe for your nails when you are expecting! We received the shade “Thandie,” a vibrant, creamy orange, and immediately fell in love. Second only perhaps to coral, orange is definitely the perfect summer shade. After first applying a base coat, it only took one coat of color for the varnish to completely cover and shine. Apply this shade to toenails (paired with a set of brown strappy sandals) and fingernails (go crazy with stackable rings) and you’re ready for the boardwalk!
Purlisse
pur~lisse pur~protect SPF30 – $55 per 1.7 oz tube
If summer means anything at all, it means sunshine, and we at Cliché are very serious about protecting our skin from those burning, harmful rays. Sure, basking in the sun for hours and hours sounds and feels like the perfect remedy after a long winter, but sunscreen is a very important step in that enjoyment (after all, getting sunburned after all that basking isn’t fun). Cue pur~lisse pur~protect moisturizer, the perfect protection for your skin. Why do we love this so much? Not only is it super moisturizing for your face, but it’s also packed with SPF30, meaning extra coverage from the sun’s rays! This lightweight, anti-aging formula is your two-in-one summer essential.
SonyaDakar
Sonya Dakar Flash Facial $95 per 1 oz bottle
Since we are awfully big on skincare here at Cliché (as mentioned above), it’s no surprise this Flash Facial from Sonya Dakar made our Top 5 list. Cherished by celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow herself (you have to admit she’s got one of the most glowing complexions in Hollywood), this one-minute exfoliating treatment promises instant results. After applying onto your clean face for 6o seconds, you’ll witness noticeably softer and plumper looking skin. Sound too good to be true? Try it out yourself (or, you know, just look at Gwyn)!
ThursdayFriday
Thursday Friday Away Mini Clutch$35
Well, now you need somewhere to stash all your summer travel essentials, right? And it has to be cute, right? Well, look no further, because the Summer 2014 box comes with this adorable Thursday Friday Away Mini Clutch, which easily doubles as a makeup bag. A miniature version of their best-selling away bag, this cute accessory is not only practical, but stylish, too! The inside is lined with nylon and has a metal zip closure, and let’s not forget the adorable electric blue statement purse print on the front! Seal all your cherished cosmetics away in style.
