How to Discover New Products Like An Editor

As fashion and beauty editors, all of us on Team LC are constantly on the hunt for that miracle hair oil or the perfect makeup palette that we become obsessed with and tell all of you, our readers, about. We hold ourselves accountable for staying in the know on all the latest fashion, beauty and fitness trends—which means we have to constantly try new products to discover the next big thing. We know we’re not alone when we say that, with dozens of products popping up on our radar each day, it can be overwhelming to narrow them down and find our favorites. It can be a lot of work!

So, about a year ago we decided to subscribe to FabFitFun, a box of curated products that’s delivered right to your doorstep each season. And it’s been one of the best decisions we’ve ever made as blog editors. Ever since subscribing, we’ve discovered new lotions, potions, tools and tips that have become regular staples in our everyday fashion, beauty and fitness routines. In short, let’s just say we never would have stumbled upon some of these essentials if it hadn’t been for FabFitFun. It lets us take the guesswork out of finding products that deserve a permanent spot in our makeup or gym bag.

The spring 2016 FabFitFun box is Team LC's favorite!

With each season, our boxes seem to get better and better. So today, we’re going to be breaking down our spring 2016 FabFitFun box and show you which must-have items we’ve fallen in love with this time around…

The box comes packed with all of these full-sized, premium products, which allows you to really get to know each one:

ISH Contour Kit

ISH Contour Kit

I’ve been intimidated by the idea of contouring ever since I started to read articles about it on beauty blogs. I’m a minimal makeup kinda girl, so contouring didn’t seem like something I would ever do. The ISH Contour Kit in my FabFitFun spring box totally changed my mind! The colors are pretty natural and subtle, which made me feel like I couldn’t go wrong. Now I use it every morning… It’s my favorite makeup palette. Allison, Editor 

Marrakesh Argan & Hemp Oil

Marrakesh Argan & Hemp Oil

I recently ran out of my favorite after-shower leave-in conditioner, so I was on the lookout for a new product. I’ve browsed the aisles of both drugstores and department stores looking for that perfect product, but didn’t want to take the plunge on buying a product, trying it once, and not liking it. So, when I got this Marrakesh Argan & Hemp Oil, it felt like FabFitFun had read my mind. I was able to try it without the hassle of going shopping and now it’s my go-to post-shower.Ilana, Editor

Hello Legs Shaving Emulation Lotion

Hello Legs Shaving Emulation Lotion

I’m the type of person who just can’t not put lotion on when I get out of the shower. That dry feeling on my skin is one of my pet peeves, so I’m always on the hunt for the best lotion out there. I loved trying the Hello Legs lotion that I got in my spring FabFitFun box because it’s so hydrating, especially after I’ve just shaved my legs. It feels super luxurious. Love! Rachel, Editor

As you can see, we’ve made a few new additions to our beauty arsenal thanks to our FabFitFun spring box. And we’re not mad about it! Go to and use the code LC to get $10 off your first box. We can almost guarantee you’ll find something you fall in love with, just like we did.
