As my regular readers will know every single month I post up reviews on some fabulous subscription boxes, and I absolutely love sharing with you all the contents of each box that I receive. I love subscription boxes… I adore the surprises and monthly/seasonally treats they give (there’s not a better pick me up than after a long days work, coming home to an incredible surprise filled box waiting to be opened.) On that note I am bursting with excitement to share with you all my new subscription box addition that I will be adding to my box reviews and sharing with you all seasonally.
ALL ABOUT FabFitFun
I have finally joined the FabFitFun family! I literally couldn’t resist. For those of you who don’t know who FabFitFun are they are a seasonal (quarterly) subscription women’s lifestyle box, created in the US. Each box is curated for the specific season and contains a massive variety of products…Beauty, Skincare, Fashion, Fitness, Travel, Home, Tech, Cooking/Food and so much more. With each box they include a magazine that explains all the items inside the box, some articles on how to use them and other informative bits n bobs inside too.
I have literally been wanting to sign up to this box for years! Every season I always checked out other bloggers and vloggers unboxing videos and reviews of this subscription box and I would always wish that it was available to us here in the UK. With every unboxing video and blog post I would be wanting to get my hands on this box so badly. I was in love with this box so much that I even emailed FabFitFun at one time in the past (maybe a year ago) and asked if they would ever consider shipping to the UK. Well I am so so so thrilled to say that FabFitFun is now available to the UK!! (My heart is going to burst with excitement – who could even be so excited about a subscription box haha…*blushes and raises hand in the air* ME!)
COST AND DELIVERY INFORMATION
Because this box is created in the US (Los Angeles to be exact) then all the pricing that I talk about will be in Dollars. The cost of this box seasonally is $49.99 USD. You can also choose their Annual plan (which gives you a few extra added benefits for example; quicker shipping and more customisation choices etc…) this will cost you $179.99 USD for the four boxes. (It would usually cost $199.99 USD but FabFitFun have reduced the price for the Annual plan so it works out slightly cheaper per box.) Each box will contain over $200.00 in products… (but the whole box cost of products is usually well over this!)
UK Custom Charges?
Because I live in the UK I was nervous for Custom Charges and how much the shipping would actually be (if the box would still be worth it if the shipping prices were high) however, I am extremely pleased and super happy to say that upon delivery I wasn’t charged any Custom Fees. (I’m not saying you definitely won’t receive Custom charge however, I wanted you to know that I haven’t and by other Uk buyers experiences that I’ve come across they haven’t had to either.)
UK Shipping Charge
Box shipping to the UK (when you pay for your box) is $10 USD plus $12.00 for tax. (All of those fees you pay from the FabFitFun checkout page. So a seasonal box plan for someone in the UK including shipping etc…comes to $71.99 USD which is £59.03 GBP. Definitely the most expensive subscription box that I have subscribed too however, payment does only come round 4 times a year and it’s totally worth it when you consider the amount of amazing products that you receive and how much the total worth of the box comes too.
The best thing about this box is that with each box FabFitFun gives you a choice to customise some of the products that you will receive. Which means your guaranteed to get a couple of things that you are in love with. I absolutely love this idea and think it’s a unique touch for a subscription box to allow subscribers to do. If you become an Annual Subscriber you get to customise even more options than a Seasonal Subscriber.
If there is more than one product out of the choices that you love FabFitFun allow you to add on additional choice items and if you do this the item will be much lower than the original cost, and it means you can then get all the products you really love in your box and don’t always have to settle for the one item you chose for your choice pick.
With each box I review I will let you know for the customise items what other products I could of picked out obviously aswell as the one I did choose to receive. I will also clearly state which products were available for all members to customise, the choice of customisation just for annual subscribers and the set products that will come in all of the boxes.
If that all wasn’t enough there is even more fabulous stuff available. FabFitFun have something called Add On’s which is where you can shop a big variety of products and purchase them at a huge price reduction than their original cost. Add On’s open up usually just before your box payment comes out for a limited time only. Annual Subscribers get the first pick as it opens up to them early and then it opens up to everyone else subscribed.
If you added some Add On items to your cart then you don’t need to checkout as you will be billed them on the same day that your usual box payment comes out. They also ship the Add On’s at the same time as your box so you won’t have more shipping fees to pay out.
Phew, that was alot to cover. I told you this subscription box was exciting! Now we got through all of that let’s start unboxing this season’s box…
Products that ALL SUBSCRIBERS can choose from:
Vix Paula Hermanny Lotus Towel $50This towel is absolutely stunning, it’s very unique looking and totally stylish. I am in love with the gorgeous lotus shape design of this towel. I had to choose this item because it looks super pretty. It is a gorgeous light blue towel with an extremely pretty lotus flower design to it. It is a massive towel in size! You can see how big it is compared to my foot in the picture below, the size of it really surprised me as I wasn’t expecting it to be so huge. Although it is massive it also can fold up to a small travel friendly size so it’s perfect for taking to the beach also. I am in love with my new towel and it’ll come in handy many times I can imagine.
Other Options To Choose From:
- Spiritual Gangster Maya Kimono $60
- Sutra Professional Mini Travel Blow Dryer – Soft Touch Marble $60
- Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream & Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel $45
111Skin Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask (Set of 5) $160For my regular readers you will know that I love a good face mask so I had to choose this luxury option. These facial masks retail for a massive $160! I would never personally go out and spend that much on 5 facial mask sheets so it was a luxury treat I didn’t want to pass up to include in my box. These masks have a wonderful ingredient list and contain 24 karat gold and Rosa Damascena extract which helps to brighten, soothe and hydrate the skin. I can’t believe we got given a big pack of 5. I cannot wait to try these out and treat my skin to five session of a luxurious mask treatment. Pure bliss.
Other Options To Choose From:
- West Elm Indigo Tie-Dye Bowls $39
- Summer & Rose Navy Diamond Tote $50
- XO, Sienna Black Felt Letter Board $35
Burn 60 Resistance Bands $34I don’t own any resistance bands and they are definitely a useful piece of fitness equipment to own so I went with this choice for that reason. This set contains three resistance levels; Light, Medium and Heavy. Resistance training is extremely important and comes with a whole range of health benefits so these bands will be very useful to use during a workout. I’m not a massive fitness regular however, I still believe that it’s good to keep in as best shape as you possibly can health-wise and i’m looking forward to working my muscles with these.
Other Options To Choose From:
- Jennifer Zeuner Star Double Necklace $50
- Odeme What A Pair Silicone Wine Glasses (Set of 2) $25
Products that only ANNUAL SUBSCRIBERS can choose from: (If a Seasonal Subscriber FabFitFun will pick for you)
Eyeko London Eye Do Black Liquid Eyeliner $22I didn’t choose this item as I haven’t subscribed for an Annual pass yet but this is your standard black liquid eyeliner. I think I’ve had this eyeliner before in a beauty box in the past and I liked it. I don’t wear eyeliner too much if i’m honest but this will come in handy when I do need a precise eyeliner.
Other Options To Choose From:
- Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream $28
- Mystery Item $24+
Intelligent Nutrients Refining Micro Polish $57Again, another item that I didn’t get the choice to choose but FabFitFun picked spot on for me with this one. I would of picked this if I had the choice. This is a micro polish which has a wonderful formula it also includes plant Jojoba beads which are biodegradable, plant based and overall great for the skin. This claims to refine pores and leave your face fresh and smooth. I do love skincare so i’m very happy with this option.
Other Options To Choose From:
- Doctor Rogers Restore Healing Balm $30
- Coola Organic SPF 30 Makeup Setting Sunscreen Spray $36
ALL SUBSCRIBERS will receive in the box:
Grace & Stella Rose Facial Spray $25.95I adore all things rose and rose facial sprays are a perfect refresher for the skin during the summertime. This bottle is big, it is 240ml. It will definitely last a long time considering you just need a couple of spritzes of this and your good to go. It’s a rose infused mist that will leave your facial skin feeling refreshed and moisturised. It’ll also look so pretty on my dressing table as it’s all pink.
Generation Clay Ultra Violet Brightening Purple Clay Mask $39I’ve heard good things about this face mask so I am excited to try this out. It claims to rejuvenate dull looking skin and boosts the skins hydration. It contains a lovely array of beneficial ingredients and also contains Davidson Plum which improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles and has strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to name a few. It definitely looks like this mask could be very beneficial to my skin.
Whish Exfoliating Foot Mask $32I love foot pampering and I feel that alot of boxes tend to forget about taking care of your feet. So I am delighted that FabFitFun included a foot mask. After all Summertime is the flip flop and sandals type of weather so pretty feet are on full display. This foot mask I love, it contains natural ingredients like Pumpkin Seed and Willow bark extract and it exfoliates and polishes feet so that they feel fresh and smooth again. The bottle is also a decent size of 74ml. Lovely.
Invisibobble Original Duo Pack $16You can never have too many hair ties and i’m always misplacing mine so these are a nice addition to the box. With long hair during the summer weather it gets hot…so this will be lovely to just scoop up my hair and style in a cute messy bun to get fresh air to my neck in the heat. I love the brand Invisibobbles as these have a strong grip and leave your hair kink free. I like the neutral shades to these hair ties and these will come in handy.
Total worth of my box: $435.95 USD (roughly £358.09)
Overall, this box is FABULOUS. When I signed up I was patiently waiting for the arrival of this box…and when it arrived I was bursting to do a review for you all and share what I chose and got in the Summer box. This is hands down my favourite subscription box that I receive. You can customise alot of the products that you get, the variety of products you can receive are so interesting and different to most subscription boxes, they are very generous on product sizes and prices and they somehow manage to fit and pack everything into their boxes. I am in love with this box and I am already super excited for the Fall 2019 box next.
My favourite item of the box was definitely the Lotus Towel…it’s just beautiful. The 111Skin face masks are my second favourite product. The whole total worth of my box came to a massive $435.95 USD which is roughly £358.09!!! That is literally insane and just shows what extremely good value for money this subscription box is. I am honestly in shock at the total amount overall. I feel extremely treated! There were 9 items in the box altogether which is ALOT and all such good value for money. I highly recommend FabFitFun box, it has exceeded my expectations and with just receiving one box so far it has quickly become my favourite subscription box out there.
Down in the comments please share if you are a FabFitFun member too I would love to know what you think of the brand and also what you thought of this Summer box…what different options did you pick? If your not a member yet I would still love to know your thoughts on the selection of products that I received? Which one is your favourite? What are your thoughts on FabFitFun being my new addition to my subscription box reviews? Thank you for staying with me and reading this long in-depth review I hope that you loved it as much as I enjoyed writing it. XOXO
