Each box will include the Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel:

 

Fat Fit Fun spoiler

What do you think of the first spoiler? I think it’s great, especially because you can get the entire box for $40 with coupon code BLACK10, and the rest of the box is worth $250+.

  1. After emailing them to tell them I wanted to opt out of the welcome box and start my subscription with the winter box, I never heard back. I have sent three messages and tonight I got a shipping message. Clearly this is not for the Winter box based on what I have read. Customer service continues to be a challenge with Subscription companies! Their IM CS did not work either! And then you cannot use the ten dollar coupon for the winter box since I signed up last week as a new customer! EEK! Liz, help!!!! Advice ??????

  2. They got me with the $10 coupon code BLACK10, plus the $300 value….ugh I have got to stop!! I’ve ordered three winter boxes, PSMH,Glossybox, & now FFF!! I hope I find some items to gift to justify these purchases…..but who am I kidding..I’ll probably keep it all, I better buy an extra, FFF seems like the best deal with $300 value…I hope there’s lots & lots of goodies and not 5 super expensive items! (My first FFF,hope it’s amazing!) I may have an addiction, thanks liz!! Im hooked! Lol

  3. I got this “peel” in my Birchbox and tried it last night… First of all, this isn’t a real “peel”. It has a super watery liquid like texture that smells vaguely of old Apple juice. You rub it on your face and it dries quickly, then rinse it off after 10 minutes. I woke up today to three pimples… What the heck lol I have very sensitive skin and this is specifically designed for sensitive skin but I’m not a believer. I will definitely wait got another spoiler before purchasing!

  4. A few months back I made like 12 referrals and contacted them about my free box if it was just going to include the winter box since 3 referrals equals a free box or if I would also get the next few boxes free since I made 12 referrals.

    They said it would only account for the winter box being free.

    Well I just got an email saying that If I refer 8 people I get a year free!!

    I don’t know if they changed it or what happened, slightly disappointing if they just changed the rule.=( Does anyone know about this or the same thing happened?

    I did message on fb to make sure they knew my winter box is free, not to forget about me. They commented that They are adding me to the list.

    I may call them and ask, it is sad if they just changed the rule on referrals and I have to start over trying to refer more people. It would be nice to get a year free!

  5. Do they ship the winter box in December or January?

    • They posted on Facebook that they are shipping between Dec 12-17th and are trying to get the boxes delivered to us before Christmas.

  6. It’s not entirely clear to me if existing subscribers can take advantage of this coupon…any ideas?

    • You have to cancel and sign up with a different e-mail address in order to use it. That’s what I just did. 🙂

  7. I’m thinking of signing up. The past few boxes didn’t really wow me and I never signed up bc for weeks after the box came out, I would get an email every day saying they still had some left. So I always thought why sign up before if I can just wait and see what’s inside and sign up. But now I’m thinking of maybe signing up now so I can give some things as gifts. And for $40!? I think I’m going to go for it.

  8. I just got that peel in my Birchbox and tried it last night

    Is it supposed to be pure liquid?? It got everywhere and though it dried on my face right away, I am confused by the product. I didn’t feel it do anything and I guess I am not sure what to expect from it.

  9. I already own full size of this peel, bought it over year ago and still have halv of it. It’s not my favorite. … But I missed fall box (it sold so quickly!!!) So now I am a bit worry to wait for other spoiler and possibly miss this one too….

  10. I love that peel. Word to the wise for people with sensitive skin, it leaves me bright red for about an hour afterwards, but it works like a dream. I really like FFF. Popsugar could learn a lot from them.

    • Oh, they’re sending the sensitive one. That one is great too and doesn’t turn my skin red.

    • This on is the Juice Beauty Peel – sensitive. They have a stronger version as well. For me personally I would have preferred the stronger version but I understand there reasoning for accommodating everyone! 🙂 It gets 4 star average rating on birchbox so that’s good.

      • Oops.. Sorry just read your last post.. 🙂

  11. I adored the last FFF box, but I never purchased it for myself because of Christmas being around the corner. I’m really tempted to just pull the plug on this as a Christmas gift to myself. I think Juice Beauty is also hit or miss for me. I just got this peel in my Birchbox and I felt a little indifferent towards it, but I know I can always pass this along to a friend if I’m not interested in keeping it (but let’s face it I’m a skin care junkie and probably will).

  12. I canceled my box this morning. The plumbing bill from last week was much larger than expected. I was away and my husband filled me on the details last night. I can’t use the spoiler, but I’ve always enjoyed their boxes. Maybe it will still be available for purchase later.

    • I feel your pain. I haven’t had too many plumbing problems (well, I have leaky tub faucets but I’m putting off dealing with that). But I’ve had about everything else go wrong lately, so I totally understand dealing with unexpected expenses.

      I’m sure the box will be available for a month or two after it first ships.

  13. I am excited! 🙂

    I don’t have anything by Juice Beauty and I would have had the lip gloss but cancelled Blush mystery box a month prior to the box with it and didn’t get the first msa box which also had the lip gloss (not the peel) Plus I haven’t received anything from my other subs that I have, Birchbox included. I keep barely missing missing Juice Beauty so I am over excited to try this popular brand. I am always happy for skin care and this peel actually has good reviews from my reading.

    Plus since the value of this winter box is $300+ worth of items, I think it’s a great deal.

    I think there may be a big ticket item in the box since the value is so high, like with the Flash facial that I absolutely loved worth $95 in the summer box. Fantastic exfoliater. But maybe something different like a scarf maybe. I have no clue but I am excited none the less! 🙂

    The box is always very large and packaged well.

    I may pick one up for a friend that is also into beauty and skin care like myself but not knowing if it will arrive before the holiday. It will be close within a few days before or after Christmas, if they ship on the 17th.

    I am excited for the spoiler!

    The summer FFF box was my first and it was my favorite. The fall box seemed so luxe for me too but I liked the summer box more. I have found some favorite items from FFF like Zoya nail polish, the no guru hair oil, Chi, honest co Flash facial, makeup and more.

    The boxes are really nicer in person to me and jumbo size! 🙂

  14. This juice beauty green apple peal gets the lowest possible on Beautypedia, which is poor. It says it has irritating acids in it and the ingredients aren’t even proven to work as a peel. I’m glad I haven’t signed up yet. I still could, depending on the rest of the contents. And then give this mask to someone I don’t like lol.

    • I have sensitive skin and I love this product. I’ve used it for over 6 months without a single issue. I generally try things at least once rather than rule them out based on a website review. Everyone has different skin sensitivities so we’re all unique. Unless a product does animal testing, I’m good to at least give it a go once. I’ve seen great reviews on it in several places so that’s the Internet for you.

    • Glad you mentioned that. I’ll be putting this up for swap immediately. I’m still getting the box though. I have very sensitive skin and any acids in skin care products even if the product is made for sensitive skin, irritates my skin so much I throw it out immediately. I hate it when companies say suitable for sensitive skin, when a lot of products are that are suposed to be suitable are not. I’ve found anything with any type of acid natural or not, irrititates my sensitive skin. Everyone is different though. Some sensitive skin is more sensitive then others,

  15. I got two of this from Birchbox already (different accounts). Granted, those were deluxe sample sizes and not full-sized. Juice Beauty is hit-or-miss for me. (I’m not thrilled about the item in Glossybox for December, it doesn’t really work for me.)

    Anyway, had to cancel FFF for financial reasons. Not planning to sign-up again because my car payments are more important, you know?

    • Car is more important?! Wha??? Huh??? No! Just think how many more people will be able to see you and think you look FAB while you walk to work! lol

      • Seriously. Priorities, woman!

  16. I haven’t really ever felt compelled to subscribe to this box. I’ve always thought there was an item or two I liked but the value wasn’t there for me. But when I saw this spoiler I went ahead and joined. I’ve never tried Juice products, but I need to find a good scrub, so I figure all else are gifts with purchase. Yay.

    • I don’t mean to be a downer, since you already subscribed, but this isn’t a scrub. It’s basically a mask you leave on for 15 minutes. I didn’t particularly notice a difference afterwards, except maybe my face was a little tighter.

      • I wanted to edit myself to say that the “sensitive” peel actually gets left on for 10 minutes. The “full strength” gets left on for 15. I haven’t tried the full strength yet, wanted to start with the sensitive in case it irritated my skin.

      • Thank you for the info! I searched the product a little and not sure why I thought it was a scrub. Probably because I read it has sugar in it. I need a mask/peel too so I’m okay with that. 🙂

  17. I’ve been sitting here with my finger on the Join Now button for about 10 minutes, and I don’t think I can bring myself to do it. Subscribers – what do you like about FFF? I sub to PSMH and MSA – and I really like the curated/special feel I get from those boxes. Does FFF have that for you? I’ve been looking at past boxes, and I’m still on the fence.

    • The last box was interesting with the apron, slippers, and skin care product. I like that the FFF is quarterly, the values always seem good. The box is similar to popsugar yet a bit different. Last year I missed out on the “giving key necklaces” they had in their boxes. I subscribed 6 months later. I should have subscribed then. I’ve been happy with the mix of goodies in the past 2 boxes.

    • I love FFF boxes sometimes I think their boxes are better than PSMH, the value is always there, and you can use some items as great gifts.

    • I’ve gotten 3 FFF boxes and bought a year subscription, I’ve really loved the boxes. It’s always a really high value, it’s not like Popsugar, the items are different, I think better and more useful. Most people tend to love Popsugar, but I like FFF a LOT better. I actually use the items, and don’t end up swapping almost the entire box.

    • I like that there is a little bit of fitness in each box. I love the fact they seem to try to find different things out there. I loved my giving key last year. I wish I had bought another one because I know someone that could use it and I’m still using mine. The socks I thought were a bit strange but for working out I really do enjoy them, I have traded for almost all the aprons now, my girls and I each have one for holiday cooking. The stamp set is something that I am giving as a gift to that one friend we all have that you can never get the right thing and has everything. I KNOW she doesn’t have this! They are able to have more time to put their box together unlike Popsugar and I think that is part of their problem right now. FFF has that extra time to get things that I didn’t know was out there or that I would have never tried otherwise. I signed up for a year and was thrilled… I will be signing up for another year after the winter box… Plus, I love that as a vip member… I was able to pick my apron. They are getting little perks for people that sign up for a year. I like that.

    • Anyone interesting in joining FabFitFun I posted my referral link and coupon code to there Facebook fabfitfun page. $40 for over $300 worth of items. On Fabfitfun/Facebook on there timeline post by Brandy Wortham. 🙂
      Click the link and order there. Like my post and I’ll comment back. Thank you! 🙂

  18. Beauty products as spoilers in boxes never make me want to purchase a box, no matter how great or expensive they are. I’ve kept FFF because normally I can find other items in the box that I find interesting and useful and the values always seem good. Hope the other products in the box are more interesting. Right now I have enough masks from MeMeboxes to last me for the next year.

  19. Wow, definitely can’t pass up this deal – the peel is something I would buy myself and the code makes everything else the box includes pretty much free!

  20. Does anyone know when this box ships?

    • My confirmation email says the winter box will ship Dec 12-17.

  21. So, if I cancel the sub I have now in order to use the code I’ll need to resub with a different email… Correct? That may sound silly, but they worded it like existing customers can use the code, and that doesn’t seem right.

  22. People that cancel and then re-subscribe do you use a new email or can you pause your account and then activate it again with the same email?

  23. Yay! I like this. I’m glad I ordered it. I have a good feeling about this box. It will be my first one. 🙂 I figured I can’t lose for $40 if I don’t like some things I could gift them.

  24. The winter discount is only if you are new and signing for first time, correct? I signed up for the new member box last week so now cannot get the winter box which I think I prefer, correct?

    • You can email them and tell them you want to opt out of the welcome box and start your subscription with the winter box. That’s what I did because I didn’t want duplicate items and they emailed me back saying it was ok to start with winter box.

  25. I’m pretty excited about the first spoiler, I’ve been wanting to try a Juice Beauty mask for a while. I can’t wait to see some other spoilers.

    • Much better then having a deluxe sample. I love my sample subs but always get super excited when it’s time for FFF (probably because it is a seasonal thing)

      I actually find that more things with FFF fit my personality better then PSMH.

      Plus there are things they send that I don’t think I will love and absolutely fall in love with so the value for me is definitely there and the value better then PSMH to me.

      I missed the box with the giving key necklace also and wished I would have known about the box then but saw the review.

      There are things I know that I will like/love with FFF and then others I am iffy on but end up loving. 🙂
