Winter 2020

Products That ALL MEMBERS Can Choose From:

CHOICE 1:

UNHIDE Lil’ Marshmallow Blanket $65OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI am so delighted and really over the moon to see that FabFitFun has included the UnHide Lil’Marshmallow Blanket again! I chose this as a choice last Winter and it’s been my favourite product that I’ve received from FabFitFun boxes…it’s even my favourite blanket in my big blanket collection! Last year the shade was in a Light Beige and this one is in the most stunning Silver. If you have never snuggled up in an UnHide blanket then you are totally missing out… they are the cosiest, softest and most snuggable blankets (in my opinion) in the whole world! The material is a soft faux chinchilla and it’s the perfect size to keep you nice and warm on a cold winters night. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAs you can see from the pictures above the shade is stunning and I’m so excited to be able to grow my UnHide blanket collection. I also massively treated myself to the UnHide Blankets that were in the FabFitFun Add On Sale; I was very lucky and managed to get one in Pink and one in a White shade. (Hmm… maybe slightly obsessed with UnHide but if you’ve had the pleasure to snuggle up in one you will know exactly what I’m talking about.) 

Other Options To Choose From:

  • VERA BRADLEY Compact Organizer $50
  • SUMMER & ROSE Cozy Robe $70
  • LOLI BEAUTY Tea Seed Elixir (Shipping Restrictions) $42
  • KATE SPADE NEW YORK Rise & Shine Stud Earrings(Set Of 2) $68
  • MOBILE WHITE Advanced Teeth Whitening Kit $89.99
  • BOMSHBEE Sloane Champagne Flutes (Set Of 4) $51

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI fell in love with these Champagne Flutes when I saw them as the stylish/unique design of the sleek flutes caught my eye. I’m moving house soon so I thought I would treat myself to these as an early home warming gift to myself. Because this is an Additional Choice then I brought these for an extra price of just $15. They come in a Set Of 4 and feel good quality, I am quite impressed by them and they look so beautiful and elegant in real. As they were being shipped from LA all the way over to the UK I was slightly concerned if they would arrive damaged but thankfully they arrived in pristine condition and they were packaged very safely. 

CHOICE 2:

IMPRESSIONS VANITY COMPANY LED Vanity Mirror $45When I saw that an LED Vanity Mirror was an option I was soo excited. (My LED vanity mirror broke a couple of months ago and I have been on the lookout for another to replace it but now I don’t have to as FabFitFun sorted that out for me.) This is a stunning and super stylish mirror by Impressions Vanity Company. It can either be used via USB or batteries and it features a lovely bright white LED light strip which is activated via a touch screen button… very modern and impressive. If you hold down the button for 3 seconds the light starts to slowly dim and you can choose your desired brightness. It’s all incredibly cool and I adore the overall white finish to the mirror, the mirror can also be tilted so you can choose the angle you want to use it at. It looks fabulous standing up on my dressing table and it’s a lovely size to view the whole of your face and some of your neck. I’m very excited to use this when I get up early for work on those dark winter mornings… my makeup will be looking flawless thanks to this LED mirror.  

Other Options To Choose From:

  • LILLY PULITZER Ceramic Mugs (Set Of 2) $42
  • CAUDALIE Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet $39
  • MURAD Rapid Collagen Infusion $78
  • ALGENIST Complete Eye Renewal Balm $68
  • LUCKY BRAND Solid Brushed Scarf $69.50

CHOICE 3:

LAURA GELLER Cinnamon + Spice Eyeshadow Palette $45OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHow beautiful is this Cinnamon + Spice Eyeshadow Palette by Laura Geller. It’s got the perfect nude combinations with 8 shimmers and 4 mattes. The shades are beautiful and exactly what I wear myself. You can achieve warm daytime looks with this palette and build it up for a slightly deeper nighttime look. I can’t wait to give this one a go and see what looks I can create with this gorgeous palette. 

Other Options To Choose From:

  • ILIA Beauty Limitless Lash Mascara $28
  • DR. BRANDT SKINCARE Pores No More Pore Purifying Cleanser $36
  • DR. BRANDT SKINCARE PoreDermabrasion $58
  • LELE SADOUGHI Maroon Velvet Headband $49

Products That Only SELECT MEMBERS Can Choose From: (If a SEASONAL MEMBER FabFitFun Will Choose For You) 

CHOICE 4:

MUK LUKS Cabin Socks $25OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHello snuggly, warm feet! These are Grey Cabin Socks by Muk Luks and I just had to choose these when I saw them. They include cute pom poms on the socks and have a cable knit design also, inside they are the most fluffiest and softest socks that I’ve ever felt (honestly) as they have a sherpa lining to keep the feet toasty warm. Sizing for these cabin socks is generous and roomy which is perfect and they even have some grip on the bottom of the soles for no slipping. I love these and they are just so adorable on. 

Other Options To Choose From:

  • TULA SKINCARE Rose Glow & Get It Cooling & Brightening Eye Balm $30
  • VOIR HAIRCARE Rhythm Of The Rain – Hair Masque & Scalp Detox $28
  • FLIGHT MODE SKINCARE High-Altitude Hydration Mask $39

CHOICE 5:

EPARE Cutting Board (Set Of 4) $19.95OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI never thought that I would be writing a review for cutting boards in a subscription box… but here it is. I wanted to choose these as I actually haven’t yet purchased any separate chopping boards for different foods and these caught my eye. They are very useful and handy to have and these boards are colour coded with a picture of the foods you need to use on each board which stops cross contamination. Each of the cutting boards feature non-slip backing so it won’t slide around when using (as you can see in the picture below the backs of the boards are nicely textured for grip.)

Other Options To Choose From:

  • BEAUTANIQ Beauty Guardian Angel Revitalising Eye Gels $25
  • DPHUE Apple Cider Vinegar Dry Shampoo Powder (Shipping Restrictions) $24

FFF’S PICK: (FabFitFun Surprises With An Option They Think You’ll Love) 

ITEM 6:

B-LOW THE BELT Croc Card Case $35OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis isn’t something that I would of chosen for myself as I’m not a fan of Red products but am sure it will make a lovely gift for someone who would like this design and would find a use for this card case. With my own preferences aside this is a good quality faux croc case which features slots for any cards you carry around, it’s quite handy because on the back it also has a zip pocket which is perfect for keeping a few coins in there too. It is a lovely made product just unfortunately not my style. 

Other Products That You Could Receive

  • WHISH Lip Scrub In Vanilla Bean (Shipping Restrictions) $20
  • PARADOX Lucky Stars Blemish Patches $18

ITEM 7:

DAILY CONCEPTS Daily Facial Dry Brush OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI love dry body brushing, I manage to do it once a week so this is a product that I will definitely use. Although I have never heard of dry brushing your face before so this is a new discovery for me. This brush has been designed for dry brushing the forehead, nose, chin, cheeks and neck area which helps to stimulate lymphatic pathways and reduce puffiness. It’s a good small size for facial features and I am intrigued to try this out and see if it makes a difference. Dry body brushing has some amazing benefits and I have seen improvement by doing that weekly so it will be very interesting to see if this offers similar or the same results.

Other Products That You Could Receive

  • NOIR Jewelry Ombre Leopard Scrunchies $25

ITEM 8: 

AESTHETICA Liquid Eyeliner OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is a black liquid eyeliner by the brand Aesthetica. This pot contains 3.2ml worth of product inside and it looks like a good quality, highly pigmented eyeliner. I love the tip of the brush as it’s got a nice thin point to it and is quite stiff so it will be easier for me to apply this on with a stiffer brush. The softer more flexible brush tips for eyeliner is alot harder for control in my opinion as I somehow end up getting it not on the desired line, so this one might be a new favourite of mine… will have to see. 

Other Products That You Could Receive

  • LONDONTOWN Get Well Nail Recovery (Shipping Restrictions) $20
  • PHASE ZERO MAKEUP Making Moves Blusher $27.50

TOTAL WORTH OF MY BOX (Excluding Bomshbee Sloane Champagne Flutes As I Purchased That At An Additional Cost)$275.95 USD (Roughly £206.24 GBP)

Overall, I am delighted with the range of products for this Winters Box. I adore so many of the products like the Champagne Flutes, Eyeshadow Palette & Cabin Socks but if I had to pick my top two favourites I would have to say the UnHide Lil’ Marshmallow Blanket and the Impressions Vanity LED Mirror. Some absolutely amazing brands and products in this seasons selection and it’s just the perfect box. 

As always 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. 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 are a member of the FabFitFun family yourself, if you are did you love this seasons Winter box and it’s contents? What products did you choose/receive differently to me? 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! 

Love, Charlotte

More Detailed Information About FabFitFun Subscription 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 been extra charged 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 around 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 each 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 you are 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 so that’s a big perk of paying annually. 

If there is more than one product out of the choices that you love FabFitFun also 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. 

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 (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 often shop their add ons and I have never been charged more postage or extra customs no matter how heavy the box is upon arrival.  

I think that’s covered everything you would roughly need to know about FabFitFun boxes ♥
