It’s officially September 1st and what better way to kick off a new month and start getting excited for the upcoming beginning of the next season with the FABFITFUN Fall Box. I am very excited to be sharing this Fall Unboxing with you all as there is a big variety of different products and all very interesting. On that note let’s see what I received in my FabFitFun box…There is quite alot of information to cover about the box’s subscription details however all of the information you will be able to find at the bottom of this review if your wanting to know more.
Products that ALL SUBSCRIBERS can choose from:
Anthropologie Travel Yoga Mat $50I didn’t actually own a yoga mat before this so when I saw this as an option I just knew I had to choose this as I really should have my own for times that I need it. I love this one by Anthropologie, it’s got a good thickness to it but it is thin and folds up to an easy carry travel size. I love the simple but unique design on the mat and it’s a navy blue and sort of dusky lavender shade. It’s a proper full size yoga mat in length and I am very pleased with it…the picture below shows the mat fully folded out (my gorgeous doggie decided to claim the mat for herself and sit pretty for a picture pose on it.) I’ll definitely be trying out yoga on the go now and this good quality mat will come in handy.
Other Options To Choose From:
- Plush Ultra Soft Plaid Scarf $75If you can’t choose between an item choice you also have the option to add an additional choice for a small extra fee of about $15.00. I couldn’t choose between the yoga mat and the plaid scarf so I decided to add both to my box and pay the extra price (which is still a great deal as this scarf retails for $75.) I love Fall as the chunky scarfs and cute boots come out of the wardrobe, so this soft scarf will be a lovely new addition to my scarf collection. It’s a pretty plaid design and has the shades of Navy, Blue and White. It’s not a heavy scarf but is a generous decent big size…I love it.
- Amika Strand Perfect Ceramic Styler $80
- Mobile White Advanced Teeth Whitening Kit $89.99 (This later on got removed as an option.)
Twine Cheese Board With Plate $30This is the exact reason that I am obsessed with FabFitFun and why it’s my favourite subscription box…what other subscription box do get the choice of a cheese board included! I am a huge cheese lover so of course I had to choose this item. It’s absolutely gorgeous as well it’s like a super cute cheese board for one. It has a removable ceramic plate and the board is made from wonderful Acacia Wood, it also comes with some gorgeous cutlery; a cheese fork and knife which both have a rose gold finish to them. This would be a gorgeous gift for any cheese lover as its packaged up all pretty too but I have to keep this one as a gift for myself. This cheese board could also be used as a smaller serving platter however, I love the cheese board for one idea. I cannot wait to prepare myself a cute small cheese board with a variety of crackers, chutneys, cheeses and fruit on it, snuggling up to a good movie whilst eating it on a chilly fall/winter evening. Yum!
Other Options To Choose From:
- Kate Spade Lunch Tote $30
- Nassifmd Detox Pads $45
- Kut From The Kloth Skim Striped Wallet $60
The Better Skin Co. Lava Magik $32This is a three in one skincare product. It’s a cleanser, scrub and mask. It contains 60ml of product and is enriched with lots of nourishing ingredients to give the skin more radiance and an overall more youthful appearance. The mask itself is a sort of pinky/red shade and it comes with a very cute spatula to make application that little bit more easier. I haven’t come across this product before so this will be good to try out. I wasn’t too excited with this product choice but I had to pick this as I don’t have my ears pierced and the other product was a skincare option too so I went with the option I thought i’d get the most use out of.
Other Options To Choose From:
- Baublebar Farah Ear Crawlers $34
- Cosmedix Pure C $54
Products that only ANNUAL SUBSCRIBERS can choose from: (If a Seasonal Subscriber FabFitFun will pick for you)
Skinvolve Body Boost Gel $45I didn’t choose this item as I haven’t subscribed for an Annual pass yet but this is the item that FabFitFun chose for me. A pre-workout gel that is formulated with green tea, ginseng and menthol which all help to target any problem areas on the skin to give tighter and smoother looking skin. It also helps to fight cellulite and tones and moisturises. I really wanted the Epare Dual Salt And Pepper Mill but I can always pass this on to somebody who will use this more than me before their workouts.
Other Options To Choose From:
- Epare Dual Salt And Pepper Mill $21.95 (This is the item that I personally would of wanted.)
- Afterspa Hair Towel Wrap $18
- Trestique Mini Eye Essentials (Set of 4) $48
Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Gold Eye Mask 6 pack $25Again didn’t pick this item myself however, very happy with the choice. (I would of been happy with any of the three products you could of received.) I do love eye masks so i’m looking forward to pampering my under eyes with these. You get 6 pairs in this set by Wander Beauty. They are formulated with hyaluronic acid, aloe leaf extract and lavender oil to hydrate the under eye area and it also claims to have a cooling effect too so eyes feel refreshed. The other ingredients in the eye mask look great so i’m really looking forward to trying these out.
Other Options To Choose From:
- Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Roller Ball $29
- Skin&Co Roma Truffle Therapy Face Toner $30
ALL SUBSCRIBERS will receive in the box:
Aveda Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair $30Aveda is a well known and loved brand and this is their 100ml bottle of Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair. It contains quinoa protein, soy and macadamia oil which all help to repair hair and also protect it during heat styling too. You add this through damp hair and just comb through, no need to rinse out.
Harper + Ari Exfoliating Sugar Cubes in Juice Cleanse $16I have never seen a product like this before and it looks so yummy and delicious (although I know you cannot eat these.) These are by a brand called Harper + Ari, they are sugar cubes that exfoliate the skin and nourishes it too. I love the cute pot they come in and all you need to do is crush one into your hand and then gently massage on wet skin to buff away dead skin cells. These are definitely going to make my showers fun! It’ll be interesting to see if one sugar cube exfoliates the whole body or if you need to use more than one. The smell is also out of this world…they are the best things that I have ever smelt, they smell incredibly fruity and strong and absolutely delicious like watermelon and apple Mmmm!
Human + Kind Body Souffle $18Can we just take a moment to notice how eye-catching and pretty the packaging of this product is. This is by another brand that I haven’t heard of before called Human + Kind. This is a body souffle which has a blend of shea butter and apricot oil. It keeps skin feeling soft and moisturised and contains some wonderful ingredients. I can’t really describe the smell although it does smell refreshing and clean. The texture is also very lightweight and the skin quickly absorbs it all in which is great. I do love receiving body lotions and moisturisers in a subscription box so I am thrilled with this.
TOTAL WORTH OF MY BOX (excluding the scarf as I purchased that at an additional cost): $246 USD (Roughly £202.34)
Overall, I am totally thrilled with the contents of this box. My favourite item has to be the cheese board gift set, closely followed by the yoga mat, scarf and exfoliating sugar cubes. The whole total worth of my box came to a good price of $246 USD which is roughly £202.34, not as much in worth price as the Summer 2019 box however, I am extremely pleased with the majority of the items in this one and think the customisation choices were spot on for the Fall season. There were 8 products in this box and there was a good variety ranging from homeware/snacking to workout equipment, skincare and hair care. Fall and Winter are my favourite seasons so I already cannot wait to find out what will be included in the Winter 2019 box…hopefully a blanket or candle.
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 out there, they are very generous on product sizes and prices and they somehow manage to fit and pack everything into their boxes. I highly recommend FabFitFun to anybody who is looking for a subscription box well worth the money!
I would love to know what your favourite product from this review is? Perhaps you also are a member of the FabFitFun family, if you are did you love this seasons Fall box? Let me know all of your thoughts and comments down below.
More Detailed Information About FabFitFun Subcription Box…
WHAT IS FABFITFUN?
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 about the items you will find inside, some articles on how to use them and other informative bits n bobs too.
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 the looks of 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.
I think that’s covered everything you would roughly need to know about FabFitFun boxes.
