It feels like it’s been forever since my last FabFitFun VIP box! Or maybe it just feels like that because summer in Houston goes on forever and ever. So ready for sweater weather and pumpkin spice everything!
FabFitFun is a quarterly subscription box that sends out beauty, wellness, fashion, and fitness products for $49.99 a box. If you choose to purchase a whole year (4 boxes), the price goes down to $44.99 a box. They promise at least a $200 value in each box, though they sometimes exceed that by quite a bit. If you’re looking for a box that delivers an amazingly great value each time, this is the one!
If you like what you see, the Fall box is still currently available for purchase. Get $10 off (bringing the price down to only $39.99) by using this link. For $39.99, that’s a total steal! That makes it the same price as POPSUGAR Must Have, except the value here is somehow almost double your average POPSUGAR box!
Completely adore the fun box design they shipped out! It’s covered in fall-themed illustrations ready to be colored in. I wish more subscription companies sent interactive boxes like this!
Every time I get a FFF box I look forward to the little booklet that comes with it. I always read it all the way through and find little bits of interesting information. Like this time I learned about a bunch of great companies (with products featured in this box!) that were founded by women. Love it! It included a cute little interview with each founder which was informative and fun to read.
Modcloth Loch and Key Scarf | $34.99
Subscribers received one out of four color options: green/blue, red/tan, black/white, and black/tan. The green and blue option was my second choice (after red and tan) so I’m pretty pleased. If you are an annual subscriber, you were allowed to choose your color. Anyways, I love that we got a Modcloth item in the box! I am a huge fan of Modcloth and have been shopping there for years. They have the cutest stuff!
It’s hard to depict in a photograph how soft this scarf is, but I hope this picture of the texture helps a little. It is seriously so incredibly soft! And it’s also a huge scarf. It could absolutely work as a small throw. I can’t wait to wear this on my next flight. I always get cold on planes and in airports so a big soft scarf is my absolute must have.
The Created Co. To-Go Coffee Mug | $19.00
Digging the hand lettering on this travel mug! Subscribers either received this design or one that says “Joy Comes In The Morning”. I preferred this one, so very glad I received it. I’ve had such great luck with getting my preferred options with FabFitFun boxes so far. This travel mug is a good size–a full 16 ounces. My little KeepCup that I use daily for coffee is only 12 ounces, so this is a better option for drinks that I drink more of, like teas and lattes.
The BrowGal Eyebrow Gel | $20.00
My current holy grail for eyebrows is Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel, but I’ve been running low and am interested in trying something new. It looks like this gets good reviews, so I have high hopes. I have only tried it on once since I got my box on Monday so I can’t really testify about how effective or long lasting it is. What I can say is that it was easy to work with and dried quickly, and I didn’t notice any flaking (though I only had it on for about 5 hours). No noticeable smell either, which is always a must for products in the eye area for me.
Skin Laundry Restoring Night Serum | $50.00
I was so excited to see this in my box! I’ve seen this brand at Anthropologie and have considered buying it on numerous occasions, but didn’t want to bite the bullet without reading reviews. I haven’t found that many reliable reviews for this particular serum, but I’m hoping it will be good for travel. They recommend using this on flights to arrive feeling refreshed and hydrated. I’ll be trying it on my next flight! In the meantime, I’ll add it to my night time routine. I’m a little disappointed that this appears to be inferior packaging just for this box, because the printing is already rubbing off. I wish they had just sent the actual product in the regular packaging.
Toesox Toeless Fitness Socks | $15.00
Woohoo, a fitness item that I know I will definitely use! Lots of women in my yoga/pilates class wear grippy socks and I tried my first pair last year. Since then, I’ve been meaning to buy a few more pairs and wanted to try the toeless option as well. My favorite thing about subscription boxes is getting to try items that I was going to buy already, but at a fraction of the cost! These socks came in a variety of colors, but I’m completely ambivalent about fitness socks so I am happy with any color.
Very grippy soles of the socks! These are machine washable, but you do have to turn them inside out. Fits size 5-10. I am a size 7 and they were perfect for me. The little FabFitFun magazine suggests wearing these during pedicures in the cold weather to keep your feet warm. Love that idea! It’s definitely not cold enough here to warrant socks yet, but maybe in the winter I’ll try it.
Mullein & Sparrow Mini French Lavender Body Oil | $18.00
If you love lavender, you need this body oil. The fragrance is so strong I could smell it as soon as I opened my box! A little goes a long way, so even though this is the mini bottle I anticipate it lasting a long time. I dislike my body oils to be this heavily perfumed, but I love the idea of using this for aromatherapy. The magazine recommends adding a few drops to your bath. The simple ingredients list really appeals to me: it’s just organic sunflower oil, organic lavender essential oil, and tocopherol (vitamin e).
FabFitFun Coloring Book & Colored Pencils | $14.00
There were two different coloring book options for this fall box: nature and things. I am overjoyed that I received the nature book! It’s filled with plenty of illustrations of flowers and foliage that I can’t wait to fill in. Unfortunately the colored pencils are horrible, but I already have a set that I like to use.
Such pretty illustrations!
Pure Cosmetics Nude Collection Eyeshadow Palette | $50.00
When I first saw the spoilers for this palette I wasn’t that excited, since I already own all 3 of the Urban Decay Naked palettes. But now that October is right around the corner, I’m thinking it’s time to start hoarding for Christmas gifts! My boyfriend’s cousin is just starting to experiment with makeup and I’m sure she would love this. The packaging is lovely and is perfect for gifting.
What I dislike about this palette is how overpriced I think it is. This is almost an exact duplicate of the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, which is only $4 more. (And completely amazing, by the way. I would highly recommend it!) If I hadn’t received this palette in a box, I would never purchase it. The original Urban Decay one is a much better deal because you know you’re getting phenomenal quality!
Spongelle Bulgarian Rose Body Wash Infused Buffer | $16.00
This is my third Spongelle and I love them! They are the perfect solution for travel. The sponge/buffer is infused with body wash and can be used at least 14 times. If you hate traveling with little bottles of body wash that leak and spill, consider trying these. I am happy to see they made this scent an exclusive for FabFitFun subscribers, but also wish they would sell it in their regular lineup–I love the scent! I love all rose scents and this one is sweet and romantic without being cloying.
Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Cleansing Cloths | $2.99
This is a sponsored item, meaning it doesn’t count towards the value of the box. It seems that FabFitFun has stopped doing gift cards and are leaning more towards these sponsored items. Even though Cottonelle wipes aren’t terribly exciting, they’re useful and good to have around the house.
Secret Outlast Xtend Clear Gel | $2.99
Another sponsored item, though it’s just a sample. I remember using Secret deodorant in middle school, so this totally takes me back. I used to pick based on how pretty the label was and how appealing the scents sounded, haha. But after a year or so I switched brands because I disliked how sticky the gel formula felt. Good news: they’ve changed! Big time! This dries very quickly and stays dry. No more sticky damp feeling and holding your arms up waiting for the gel to dry!
Wow, what a box! The total value is $239.99! Every time I get one of these boxes I ask myself “how do they do it??”. The value is so amazing and the curation is superb. This truly felt like a fall box, and it makes me excited for the upcoming cool weather. (Though to be honest, I was already so excited with or without a box.) I got lots of items that I am already using, and also was able to get a lot of gifts out of this box. I’m considering buying a second box for more gifts!
Again, if you want the Fall box it’s still available! Get $10 off (bringing the price down to only $39.99) by using this link. Seriously, only $39.99 for all these goodies! Treat yo’self!
