Fancy Box $20 Mystery Box - Women's Edition Box

Last week Fancy offered free shipping on their mystery boxes. (Fancy’s shipping costs are usually the only thing that keep me from buying way too much from their site), so I had to take advantage of the free shipping coupon. I ordered both a Men’s and Women’s $20 Mystery Box, and the Women’s Box was the first to show up!

Fancy Box $20 Mystery Box - Women's Edition Items

The Box: Fancy Mystery Box

The Cost: $10 (Small), $20 (Medium) or $40 (Large)

Fancy Box $20 Mystery Box - Women's Edition Notes

LAEX Neon Card Holder – Value $30

SMS Sticky Notes – Value $7

Fancy Box $20 Mystery Box - Women's Edition Straws

Bamboo Paper Straws – Value $8

Japonesque Precision Eyelash Curler – Value $14

Verdict: This mystery box was not a hit for me since I’ve already received all of these items from various Fancy subscription boxes (I went into it knowing that may happen), but I was hoping to get a good item or two to gift. Instead I think I’ll be swapping all of these!

Did you order a Fancy Mystery Box? What did you get?

  1. Well in the end the medium box worked out for those around me, just not for me. My teenage son loves the shark tooth necklace. My sister loves the sunglasses and nail art. Waiting to see what Nicky Hilton Fancy’s box brings to decide if this company is for me. Everyone else around me loves it.

  2. I ordered the $40 Large box and was mega-disappointed – it seemed like the medium box except people with the medium box got higher valued items than my Large. Mine had the Creature Cup (Shark), Fancy Wayfarer Sunglasses, Kinfolk issue 11, and music branches (2-way splitter for ear buds). Total value is $63. I contacted Fancy and they assured me I’d gotten a Large even though I saw reviews for these items under Medium and Small (I think that means no matter what you buy you can get any of them so may as well stick with $10 one). They gave me a choice of $20 credit or a Women’s $10 box for free. If the free shipping came around again I’d go with the $20 credit but I’m thinking of going with the $10 box hoping they try to get me a good one.

  3. I saw my sister yesterday. She loves the sunglasses and nail wraps. The sunglasses look great on her.

  4. I stopped ordering from Fancy after my last mystery box produced ANOTHER vinyl “wall art” item. Who comes up with these things? How in the world does that plastic envelope sell for $30? No thank you! I do, however, enjoy your reviews Liz. Can’t wait until your box comes out!!

  5. the Fancy Food box this month was AMAZING… highly recommend that one! all their other boxes seem like duds so far. i was skeptical about the food box, but the value this month was almost $80! worth looking into!

  6. I got the same box as you, Liz. At first I thought they sent a $10 box by mistake since the “big ticket item” was included in past $10 mystery boxes. At least my men’s box was better (mason jar shaker, sunglasses, sasquatch soap, and hot dog slicer).

  7. Last time I did a 10$ mystery box and I really liked it, minus that neon card holder thing that I see has now made it’s way to the $20 box. Since there was the free shipping coupon I decided I’d do another $10 box, I haven’t received it yet but now I’m thinking it’s going to be a big disappointment

  8. Wow, I totally dodged a bullet! I thought this had to be the small box because these items are terrible. I’m shocked to find out it’s a medium one! I ordered the medium and got the box with the necklace, sunglasses, nail wraps, and chapstick. I’m incredible happy with it and can’t believe so many good items came in this one.

    • I got the same! glasses, necklace, nail wraps, & chapstick…MUCH better, though I only like the 1st 2 items!

  9. The sunglasses alone were worth the $20, and at least no neon card holder included in our box!

  10. I got the same box Liz did. The men’s box was worse – 4 piece shaker set with 3 pieces that don’t open – laughable. The 3 other things were dollar store items. I am ashamed of myself for spending money on this but Fancy should be ashamed to sent junk.

    • Do you mean the mason shaker? I got it too and couldn’t figure it out. You have to keep the whole shebang twisted on and THEN pull off the cap so the strainer works.

      I’m not sure what else you got but I got the stupid wall decal which is already in the donation box. I also got Sasquatch soap, the Cuppow, and the hot dog slicer.

      Once I figured out the shaker I was reasonably happy. I would have been upset though if I had paid more than the $20.

  11. I got a large women’s box:

    Goddess Gold Cuff – I was hoping for the mint green TKO skeleton watch
    Kinfold Vol 11 Magazine/Book? – no use for this whatsoever…
    Chef’n Zeel Peel Orange Peeler – already traded
    Passport Manager by Zero Per Zero – great for a couple of upcoming out of country trips I have planned
    A.J. Morgan gold and tortoise shell rimmed wayfarer type sunglasses – pleasantly surprised how much I like these.

    Although I feel like I was on the winning side of these mystery boxes for a change, this will probably be my last.

  12. I got the $20 women’s box. I received a gold shark tooth Sophie Sparrow necklace, palm trees nail stickers, a Chapstick of sorts and a really nice pair of sunglasses that I would have really enjoyed if I did not need a prescription… overall, I am sick of palm trees and sharks after the Nina Garcia box, is like I am stuck in a bad luau time warp!

    I think I might be over the “mystery” aspect….I really should stop being lazy and start swapping, lots of stuff in my subs stash/graveyard!

    • I got the same $20 mystery box and you and I actually loved it! Definitely true that it’s a grab bag. I would have been disappointed with the box Liz got. I actually had tried swapping for the Sophie Sparrow shark tooth necklace with no luck so happy I got something from my wish list. I love gold jewelry and layering necklaces so it’s perfect for me.
      I could have done without the chapstick, but whatever, it’ll get used. I actually like the nail wraps, I think they’re cute for summer. And I got the Fancy wayfarers in a subtle tortoiseshell print with a sort of matte velvet (?) texture. They’re pretty nice and I will wear them.

      • Same box AS you. Sorry, typo.

    • Got the same Women’s Medium box as Ingrid/Benita – I was really happy! Nail wraps are not my personal favorite, but already swapped them, LOVE the necklace and the tortoise Wayfarer Sunglasses. My 7-yr old son will like the chapstick – doesn’t look girly like some of the ones I pass along to him. Glad nothing will go to waste, even if I do not use it myself. Also bought a Men’s Medium box (of course!, because of the free shipping deal), and didn’t like that one so much – the wall decal is back!

    • Same mystery box as Ingrid.
