WINTER 2019

PRODUCTS THAT ALL SUBSCRIBERS CAN CHOOSE FROM:

UnHide Lil’ Marshmallow Blanket $65OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIf you know me you will know that I am obsessed with blankets, my home is filled with lots of fluffy blankets and everyday I am snuggled up in one. So I couldn’t resist picking this item out of all of the other choices. This is a fabulous faux fur blanket in the shade Beige bear which is a cream colour. It’s a “50 x 60” blanket and it’s lovely and big! I’m surprised they could fit this in the box but they impressively managed too. It is extremely soft and cuddly and super cozy too. Perfect for snuggling up into on a chilly winter’s evening, this will literally be my snuggly companion all winter long.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Other Options To Choose From: 

  • Rebecca Minkoff Marled Beanie & Armwarmer Set $70OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I also loved the look of this item too and I couldn’t resist buying this as an additional choice for just an extra $15. It is a stylish beanie and armwarmer set which is made by the designer Rebecca Minkoff. I absolutely adore the colours used it’s beautiful being marled too. I haven’t got a matching hat and glove set so this is perfect and will keep me looking stylish and warm in the chilly weather. I’m extremely pleased with this product.

  • Kate Somerville Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream $65 
  • R+Co Television Perfect Hair Shampoo + Conditioner $64
  • Jonathan Adler Fleur De Sel Ceramic Candle $48

PJ Salvage Faux Trim Cable Slippers $45OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHow wonderful, I never thought that I would receive slippers in a subscription box but I have now. These are by PJ Salvage and are slip on slippers in a gorgeous, trendy cable knit grey design. I love the faux fur inside of the slippers it gives them a cozy touch and they do look very stylish on. I’m normally a slipper boot style type of girl however these slip on ones are gorgeous. They are available in S/M or M/L and fit perfectly. I’m very impressed that FabFitFun included slippers as an option.  

Other Options To Choose From: 

  • LashesMD Eyelash Conditioner $69.95
  • Erno Laszlo Pore Cleansing Clay Mask $48
  • Ban.do Bluetooth Shower Speaker $30

Adore By Swarovski Organic Circle Bracelet In Rose Gold $39OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHow beautiful is this bracelet? I think it’s stunning. This is a rose gold bracelet on a rose gold plated chain with a circle design that has a shining Swarovski crystal in it. It looks so simple yet so elegant at the same time. I do love this alot and I can’t wait to wear this out adding some sparkle and glitz to my wrist. 

Other Options To Choose From: 

  • Battington Lashes Monroe 3D Silk Lashes + Glue Kit $32
  • Karuna Face For All Face & Eye Mask Set $42
  • Rodial Soft Focus Glow Drops $55

PRODUCTS THAT ONLY ANNUAL SUBSCRIBERS CAN CHOOSE FROM: (IF A SEASONAL SUBSCRIBER FABFITFUN WILL PICK FOR YOU)

Beauty Bakerie Proof Is In The Puddin’ Palette $38OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERABecause I am a seasonal subscriber at the moment I couldn’t choose from these options however FabFitFun chose for me and they got my pick spot on!! This would of been my choice if I had the option to choose (so I feel extremely lucky that they added this to my box.)

I can’t get over how cute this palette looks. I haven’t heard of this makeup brand before but the illustrations on the cover are so adorable. This is a gorgeous eyeshadow palette that includes 5 matte shades and 4 shimmers. It is a hard-pressed palette for minimal fallout too. The amount of eyeshadow you get in the circles are a pretty decent size and the shades are definitely shades that I would personally wear. They look like beautiful autumnal colours to me and very flattering neutral shades. I love the names of each of the eyeshadows I think that they are a lovely little touch. Can’t wait to try this out!

Other Options To Choose From: 

  • LXMI Pure Nilotica Melt $28
  • Vooray Sidekick Crossbody Bag $17.99
  • Paper Source 12 Month Rose Floral Planner $27.95

Vera Mona Color Switch Solo $16.99PC071112.JPGAgain, another option that FabFitFun chose for me instead and they ended up picking the item that I would of chosen out of the selection. Wonderful! This looks amazing and a much needed beauty tool. It’s an instant brush cleaner that allows you to switch easily between your shades whilst applying your makeup so you don’t have to clean your brush for the next shade. I haven’t come across these before but these are definitely a beauty lifesaver! It sounds like such a clever invention and I would think it would be a beauty staple. You don’t need to add any water or liquid, you literally just swirl your brush on the black sponge and it gets instantly clean. Magic! Very excited to give this a go.PC071114.JPG

Other Options To Choose From: 

  • Ahava Salt Bag $16
  • Frank Body Original Coffee Scrub $16.95

FABFITFUN PICK: (FabFitFun surprises with an option they think you’ll love) 

You will either be given: Inc.redible NailsInc Thirsty Hand Mask Duo $16 or Cuccio Somatology Calm + Clean Epsom Salt Hand And Body Wash $39.95

I got given… Cuccio Somatology Calm + Clean Epsom Salt Hand And Body Wash $39.95PC071120.JPGAnother spot on chosen product from FabFitFun. I really wanted to try this product out as it looks amazing and I am so pleased this was in my box. This is a hand and body wash that is quite expensive so I would say a luxury product and it contains a wonderful blend of Lavender Oil, Pro Vitamin B5 and Shea Butter. It’s a big bottle at 236ml and it smells divine and so relaxing. This is going to look lovely on my bathroom sink and keep my hands clean and smelling relaxing.  

ALL SUBSCRIBERS WILL RECEIVE IN THE BOX:

MakeUp Eraser In Original Pink $20PC071106.JPGI have always wanted to try one of these out and now I finally can. Yay. This is a much loved makeup remover. It’s a pink cloth and all you need is some water and it erases with ease all of your makeup off. It’s double sided so the short fibres on one side will erase the makeup and the long fibres on the other side will exfoliate the skin. It’s also antibacterial and machine washable and can be used for 3-5 years! That’s incredible…they also claim that one makeup eraser is equal to 3600 makeup wipes. I’m very excited to try this out as I know this is a firm favourite of many people. If it works I won’t ever touch another makeup wipe again! 

Drybar Prep rally Prime & Prep Detangler $23PC071119.JPGThis is a prime and prep detangler by the brand Drybar who I haven’t heard of before. It’s formula is lightweight and uses Vitamins B and C, Biotin and Seaberry Oil to protect the hair from heat up to 232 Degrees Celsius. It also leaves the hair with a soft finish and conditioned. It’s a good sized bottle with 147ml of product.  

TOTAL WORTH OF MY BOX (EXCLUDING THE BEANIE + ARMWARMER SET AS I PURCHASED THAT AT AN ADDITIONAL COST): $286.94 USD (ROUGHLY £218.37)

Overall, I am in love with the whole contents of this box. This box is super for winter and the customisation choices are spot on for this season. In this one box I now have have a new blanket, hat and armwarmer set and slippers which are all winter staples. I am over the moon that the choices I couldn’t choose from FabFitFun chose the exact products that I myself would of picked if I had been given the choice to choose…I feel extremely lucky for that.

For this box I cannot choose a favourite item, I have far too many that I love the same amount; Blanket, Hat set, Slippers, Eyeshadow Palette, Makeup Eraser, Color Switch, Hand + Body wash…there are far too many favourites to even pick one. The box is so worth the price, it exceeded how much I spent on this box as a whole and you get so so much for your money it’s literally a bargain. I hate to say this everytime but this really is my favourite box so far that I have received from FabFitFun. I know that everytime I say that but it’s because every box somehow outdoes the previous one…even though I never know how that’s possible because they are always so incredible. 

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 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 that is 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 Winter box and it’s contents? Let me know all of your thoughts and comments down below. 

Love, Charlotte

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.

BOX CUSTOMISATION 

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.

ADD ONS

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.
