I was so excited to get my FabFitFun box in the mail yesterday. I found a great deal for my first box on Facebook last week and knew right away I had to take advantage of it. Since I signed up in between seasons I was able to snatch the Editor’s Box, which includes the most-loved products that were featured in last year’s boxes. FabFitFun’s subscription is different from other companies, such as Birchbox or Ipsy, because they send out their boxes seasonally as opposed to monthly.
This product was purchased with my own money and I will be including my referral link at the end of this blog post if any of you want to try FabFitFun and get $10 off. Like always, I will provide my readers with an honest review on how I feel about this product/service.
Right off the bat I really like that FabFitFun includes full sized products, as well as a large variety of products I will use. I’m not a huge fan of other subscription based services that only send out sample sized products. I get that their subscriptions are cheaper, but most of the time I don’t even use up all of the samples (Sorry, VeganCuts). A seasonal subscription for FabFitFun costs you $49.99, and renews every quarter, meaning you’ll get billed each time FabFitFun sends out their new box. If you decide to pay for an annual subscription that will run you $179.99, and there are different perks that come with that. You can read about that here.
I decided to stick with a seasonal subscription because I could cancel it at any time. Plus, I wanted to take advantage of the deal I found on Facebook for the purchase of my first box. After receiving my first box I am definitely considering renewing my subscription sometime in the future, but for now, I’ll stick to my Editor’s Box. As some of you may know from reading my blog, Danny and I working on our debt snowball, so I’m not in the market for adding any unnecessary expenses. However, I do think it is okay to reward yourself occasionally in order to avoid burn out.
Modcloth Loch and Key Scarf $34.99
I’m going to start with the two products that are my least favorite. If I’m being honest here, I probably won’t be wearing this scarf very much. I can see why others may like it, it’s a very soft scarf, but I don’t like plaid very much. Watch me say that and a few months from now I’m wearing plaid in my Instagram pics. 😀 I guess it’s just that I don’t like the colors very much, but that’s the thing with subscription boxes: you’re always going to get products you might not like or use.
The Created Co. To-Go Coffee Mug $19
This coffee mug is super cute, but I will probably never use this. I can’t even imagine what would happen if I took a hot drink with me on the subway. Some people have that sort of balance but I definitely don’t! I’ll give this away to one of my friends, but I really like the look and feel of this travel mug.
At the time that I purchased the Editor’s Box, FabFitFun already had a web page that showed what came in the box (it’s been out for a while). Usually, you will not know what comes in your box but FabFitFun does send subscribers sneak peeks, according to their website. It worked out for me in the end since I was already in the market for a better hair oil than the one I was using, and I knew I liked the lip gloss and Zoya nail polish. If I were to purchase those products in store or outside of FabFitFun, my total would come out to 75.99, so I saved by purchasing the subscription box.
O.R.G. Skincare Mineral Peel Face $44
Truth be told I wasn’t too hopeful about this face peel, but I tried it out last night and so far I really like it. It’s too soon to tell if it really works, but my skin felt so soft afterward. I’ve never used a face peel product before, but I feel like this is the beginning of a new skincare addiction.
Marrakesh Argan & Hemp Hair Oil $22.99
This hair oil was my favorite product out of the entire box. I was in desperate need of a new serum and this Marrakesh Argan & Hemp Hair Oil is a whole lot better than the other one I using. I was a little disappointed at first because this product was a serum and not a spray like I thought it was. Unlike the other serum I was using previously, this one doesn’t leave a greasy film on my strands so I actually prefer it this way!
FabFitFun Coloring Book & Colored Pencils $14
This is a super cute coloring book! I don’t color too much, but I might take a few pages for myself, and give the rest of the book to my niece. I know coloring books for adults are really trending these days so I’ll be sure to try this! Might come in handy to have in my backpack when I get to class early.
Jook & Nona Tag Necklace $65
This necklace is gorgeous! I don’t have anything quite like it, and I’m sure it will be a staple in my jewelry collection. I’ve never heard of this brand before so I went online to check out Jook & Nona’s website. They have the cutest ring collection! That’s why I love subscription boxes like FabFitFun so much, they turn you onto new brands that you might have never tried before!
Manna Kadar Liplocked Priming Gloss Stain $24, O.R.G. Skincare Mineral Peel Face $44, Zoya Nail Polish $9
Last but not least, I got these three little beauties I have pictured above. The lip gloss is absolutely beautiful and looks so natural on me. I’m wearing the Zoya polish right now, and I have to say it’s an amazing formula. It was so easy to paint my nails and they dried super quick. I did have to do three layers of polish, but I have no problem doing that. And don’t even get me started on the Dermalogica skin booster. This product is absolutely amazing and feels just like water going onto the skin.
That’s it for my FabFitFun review of the Editor’s Box! I hope you guys like these First Impressions, and if you’d like to try FabFitFun I have a referral code that will get you $10 off your first box below. Until next time!
