I am bursting with excitement to share with you all my FabFitFun’s Summer Season Box! This is one of the best subscription boxes that I have ever received and it is full to the brim with the most beautiful and wonderful goodies. This truly is a box review that you will not want to miss viewing…
This box design is perfect for feeling summer vibes. It’s very vibrant and eye catching and the size of the box is impressive as it’s a MASSIVE box and super deep so alot of items can fit snugly inside. I think I heard recently that FabFitFun have upgraded their boxes so depending on what choices you have picked and what you fill your box with will depend on which size you receive. They have a bigger and slightly smaller box size. The one I got for this season is definitely the bigger size as there are alot of items to fit…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:
DRAPER JAMES Straw Bag With Floral Scarf $75The perfect summer accessory is a straw bag and I chose this because I couldn’t resist updating my summer accessories with this gorgeous piece. This bag is by the brand Draper James and is a lovely natural straw colour. On the handle it includes a pretty floral scarf which is removable. It’s the perfect size and can easily fit your magazines in aswell as all the other bits n bobs you want to carry around. I’m so pleased with this bag and it’s wonderful in quality.
Other Options To Choose From:
- POTTERY BARN MASON Ceramic Diffuser in Solstice $59
- YUMI KIM Wireless Charging Pad $35
- DO NOT AGE WITH DR.BRANDT Triple Peptide Eye Cream $82
- LASHES MD Eyelash Conditioner $69.95
- L*SPACE Tie Dye Towel $58I added this as an additional choice for just $15 as I really couldn’t choose between the bag and this stunning towel. This tie dye design towel is totally beautiful! It’s got gorgeous shades of pastel blue, pink and purple which is on a 100% cotton towel with fringe detailing on the ends. The size is MASSIVE! The picture above is the towel folded in half as there was no way that I could fit it all in my photo. The sizing measurements are 70” x 30”. This towel is going to be perfect for relaxing on and chilling out in the garden or beach.
BUSINESS & PLEASURE CO. Cooler Bag $59I never thought a subscription box would include a cool bag but here I am sharing with you this gorgeous cooler. This is a perfect item for the Summer and very much needed for all of my much loved picnics I go on so I had to pick this item. This is a premium cooler bag which keeps food and drinks cold and crisp. It’s in a gorgeous sunshine yellow shade with a stripe design and is made from 100% cotton with an insulated interior. It’s got a smaller carry handle and a convenient longer one too for slinging over your shoulder. This cool bag is extremely well made and it’s surprisingly got alot of space inside, in length it can fit in wine bottles with room for lots of other things too. It can hold 3.68 Gallons which is about 16.7 Litres of stuff. It’s the most adorable cool bag I own so I am absolutely in love with this product!
Other Options To Choose From:
- MICHAEL KORS Bedford Travel Passport Wallet $78
- HYDROPEPTIDE Moisture Reset Face Oil $120
- R+Co Television Perfect Hair Shampoo + Conditioner $64
- ISAAC MIZRAHI Blue & White Kimono $59Again, I added this product as an additional choice to my box for $15 as I was in love with the cool bag but also really liked the look of this Kimono. This is a blue & white stripe kimono which has tassel detailing at the bottom from Isaac Mizrahi. This will look gorgeous draped over any summer outfit or will be perfect to use as a cover up over a bikini and it’s extremely airy and lightweight so will be very cool during hot weather. This product is a throwback item from a past box and was in limited supply, it sold out very quickly so I am extremely lucky to of received one.
KATE SOMERVILLE Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream $65This Kate Somerville Goat Milk Cream is a throwback from a previous box which I never got the chance to choose so I am delighted that FabFitFun brought this product back as a choice. This is a full size 50ml jar and is a much loved moisturising cream. It’s made with lactose from goat’s milk, jojoba and avocado aswell as other wonderful ingredients all which leave the skin feeling supple, soft and super smooth. I haven’t ever tried out a cream with goat milk in it before and I can’t wait to try this out for myself (Ancient Egyptians used goat’s milk to heal and nurture the skin.) The formula itself looks like a very lightweight texture which will be perfect to apply during the summer weather – not a heavy cream.
Other Options To Choose From:
- THE GIVING KEYS Mini Key Necklace $45
- COOLA Mineral Face Organic Matte Finish Sunscreen Lotion SPF30 (US ONLY) $36
- COOLA Mineral Face Matte Finish Cucumber Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 $36

Products That Only SELECT MEMBERS Can Choose From: (If a SEASONAL SUBSCRIBER FabFitFun Will Choose For You)
I have been subscribed to FabFitFun for a whole year now! It’s my favourite subscription box that I receive and because I am always so blown away with the products included inside and the customisation choices then I decided it was the perfect time to upgrade my account and become a Select Member! So I am delighted to tell you that from now on I am able to choose my own choice for this category Select Members…
ZOE AYLA Ice Roller $30This looked very interesting to me and because I don’t already own one I thought I’d give this a go. This is an ice roller which claims to; reduce puffy eyes and brighten under-eye circles, improve skin tone and decreases the size of pores, reduces the appearance of fine lines and blemishes and promotes fluid flushing in the face. This ice roller just needs to be popped into a freezer for 4 or more hours before use and then can be soothingly rolled over the face and neck area. I haven’t used it in the freezer yet but when I took it out of the packaging the roller was already very cold and soothing, so in the freezer this will work a treat. The roller is abit too big to use close to the eye area I would say but it’s the perfect size for the neck and cheek area. It can also be used to soothe bug bites and sun-burn and help tense or sore muscles and aches.
Other Options To Choose From:
- TERRE MERE Aloe And Tea Tree Toner $54
- SILKED Satin Pillow Sleeve $29.50
ISAAC MIZRAHI Loves XO SIENNA Vase $28This is completely stunning and right up my street for decor. It’s a charming ceramic vase which is made of raw, textured stoneware and each vase has been uniquely hand dipped. It’s super pretty and is the most adorable vase that I have ever seen. It’s in a gorgeous pastel pink and white shade. I am in love with this decorative vase and considering it came all the way from the US and hasn’t got any damage to it at all…it’s incredible! It’s not big in size and is slightly smaller than your average sized vase however, that’s not a problem for me as I think it gives it an overall adorable look. Extremely happy with this vase as being over in the UK I don’t think I’d be given another opportunity to purchase this…I would love for FabFitFun to bring this product back in the future as a throwback choice as it’s gorgeous.
Other Options To Choose From:
- THE LYFESTYLE CO. Beach Mist $42
- AMIKA Brooklyn Bombshell Blowout Spray $25
- GRACE & STELLA Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum $25
FFF’S PICK: (FabFitFun Surprises With An Option They Think You’ll Love)
For this choice FabFitFun themselves select 3 items from the FFF’S picks for the season. You could of either received:
- RIDDLE Oil Original Roll On $50
- WINKY LUX Uni-Brow Universal Eyebrow Pencil $16
- CALI COSMETICS Foot Cream With Menthol in Tarocco $24
- MAKEUP DROP Hybrid Makeup Applicator $20
- MURAD Essential C Cleanser $40
- SPONGELLE Coconut Verbena Hand Cream $18
- WANDER BEAUTY Baggage Claim Gold Eye Mask (6 Pack) $25
FabFitFun Gave Me;
WINKY LUX Uni-Brow Universal Eyebrow Pencil $16Personally, this item isn’t for me. I don’t like ‘universal’ eyebrow products as I don’t believe one brow shade can be a perfect fit for all…however, with my own personal opinion aside this does look like a good eyebrow pencil with gorgeous packaging and includes a spoolie eyebrow brush too.
SPONGELLE Coconut Verbena Hand Cream $18This coconut hand cream just smells of summer, it’s divine. I am thrilled with this product, I tried this out already and it soaks fast into the skin leaving no stickiness behind and left my hands feeling evenly hydrated and very soft. A lovely lightweight hand cream perfect for Summer with it’s luscious coconut scent.
CALI COSMETICS Foot Cream With Menthol in Tarocco $24I think I just discovered my new favourite foot cream. I’m delighted that I got given this foot cream to try out by Cali Cosmetics. This smells incredible, it smells strongly of pure fresh oranges (mmm so delicious) and the ingredients are great. It’s fast absorbing and I slept overnight with this product on under my socks and when I woke the next morning my feet were silky smooth! On the back of the bottle they have this written which I think is wonderful so I just had to share with you – “Story: Tarocco (meaning beautiful in Sicilian dialect) was discovered by my great great grandfather Gesualdo Di Naro in Francofinte, Sicily. My family uses this wonderful fruit in the same way we use everything from our lands, internally and externally.” A fabulous foot cream!
TOTAL WORTH OF MY BOX (Excluding The Extra L*Space Towel + Isaac Mizrahi Kimono As I Purchased Those At An Additional Cost): $315 USD (Roughly £248.71)
Overall, this box is perfection! The selection of products inside are so varied and each one that I received is going to be extremely useful. I don’t really have a favourite from this box as there are far too many that I equally love but if I had to choose my top products would be; Business & Pleasure Cool Bag, Isaac Mizrahi Loves XO Sienna Vase, Draper James Straw Bag, L*Space Towel and the Cali Cosmetics Foot Cream. I feel totally spoilt and extremely lucky with this incredible selection of summer goodies and they are all a real treat…absolutely in love with this seasons box.
FabFitFun subscription boxes are always so worth the price, everytime the box exceeds how much I spent on it as a whole and you get so so much for your money, every box is literally a huge bargain. FabFitFun 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? What choices would you of personally picked if you had brought this box? Perhaps you are a member of the FabFitFun family, if you are did you love this seasons Summer box and it’s contents? What products did you receive differently? I would love to know what you got! Let me know all of your thoughts and comments down below as I love hearing from you all!
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 when I brought my first box 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 am never 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 seasonally 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 from 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 select members and the products for the FabFitFun picks.
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 (Select Members) get the first pick as it opens up to them early and then it opens up to everyone else subscribed.
If you added Add On items to your cart then you don’t need to checkout as you will be automatically 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.
