Now, time for the items!

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0057

Gypsy05 Roundie – Value $50

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0087

This is the Blue Tie Dye Roundie. If you are an annual subscriber, you were able to select your roundie pattern. If you’re a quarterly subscriber, you’ll be surprised by which pattern you receive. Check out all the roundies here.

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0088

The roundie is made from 100% Cotton and it measures about 62.5 inches across. (Machine wash cold, hang dry.) 

These roundies are a lightweight fabric, so they’re great for layering. We used this one to give basic bedding a new look:

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0091(1)

They also work great for the beach, picnic blankets, etc. (Check out our spoiler review post to see other styling ideas, too!)

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0050

MILLY Zip Pouch – Value $45

(Dimensions: 10 1/4″ x 8″)

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0051

This pouch is water resistant inside, so it’s great for a bathing suit bag or a cosmetics bag.

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0052

And it has a wristlet strap, so it could double as a beach clutch.

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0110

Subscribers will receive one of four pastel patterns.

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0064

Emerald Duv Joshua Tree Cage Bracelet – Value $80

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0065

This season, FabFitFun introduced Choice – subscribers could pick between two jewelry brands/item descriptions, but the actual item would be a surprise!

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0067

This cuff is gold-plated brass, and fits my style well! Here it is on:

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0068

It’s made in the USA, too!

And FabFitFun sent us the other choice item to show you both options. (Subscribers will only receive ONE of these two jewelry items). 

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0058

LUV AJ Diamond Kite Crawler Earring Set – Value $85

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0059

This set can be worn together or separately as just studs.

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0060

These are made from Brass with Swarovski Crystals, with rose gold plating.

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0063

And they are Hypoallergenic, too! Here are the cuffs on (pinched over my ear lobe):

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0113

No piercing needed to wear them this way!

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0006

Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish Set in Blue Orchid/Like a Virgin – Value $19

These polishes are minis – a little over half the size of the full-size versions.

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0007

Subscribers will either receive this set or the Shape of My Heart Duet set.

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0008

I love Deborah Lippmann polish, so I was thrilled to see this set in the box!

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0009

The white polish goes on sheer/cloudy, so you’ll need 3 coats to get a full coverage, 2 coats for full coverage in the blue polish. Here are the shades on:

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0112

This is one of the best nail polish formulas I’ve worn – I had no chipping for days!

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0105

Karuna Hydrating+ Face Mask Set – Value $28

This set includes 4 sheet masks:

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0107

These masks are all about hydration, and that’s exactly what my skin needed this week! You wear the mask for about 20 minutes, then remove and let any remaining serum absorb.

So, I got to continue my fun tradition of scaring my husband while wearing a sheet mask, and my skin felt great after wearing it, too!

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0030

REALHER Lip Kit in Deep Red – Value $48

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0032

Subscribers will receive either Deep Red (pictured here), Deep Nude, or Neutral Pink.

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0033

This set includes a Matte Liquid Lipstick, Lip Plumping Lip Gloss, and a Lip Liner.

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0037

The lip gloss provides excellent pigment and shine (and impressive staying power for a gloss), but it is a tad sticky.

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0035

The matte lip stick is also very impressive with staying power – it lasted all day for me. Same with the lip liner:

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0039

Here are all the lippies swatched:

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0040

Deep Red liquid lipstick, lipgloss, and liner, Deep nude liquid lipstick, and liner, and Neutral Pink liquid lipstick, lipgloss, and liner.

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0103

Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator – Value $79

I was thrilled to see this item in the box! (A $79 amazing beauty item that wasn’t one of the spoilers? Yes!)

If you aren’t familiar with this exfoliator, it’s a highly-rated cult favorite beauty product!

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0104

The formula is an ultra-fine scrub you can use 1-2 times a week. I love the minty fresh scent, and how smooth it makes my skin feel. (I’ve seen a lot of reviewers mention it helped them with whiteheads/acne, etc.)

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0099

Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray – Value $20

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0100

The Briogeo haircare line is ingredient conscious (which I love), but I’ve had mixed results with their products, so I decided to use this spray very sparingly at first.

I love the scent, and I found giving my damp hair a light spray left it feeling softer, too. So, this one works well for me, but based on some reviews I’ve seen on Sephora, I definitely recommend using minimal sprays per use to see how it works with your hair.

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0097

And our fitness item for this box is FabFitFun TV!

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0098

All subscribers will get access to a variety of workout videos. (even if you haven’t received your Spring box yet, you have access to the videos now!)

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0101

Nature’s Bounty Hair Skin and Nails Vitamins (40 count) – Sponsored Item

(These gummies are an extra in the box that don’t count toward the total value of the box for subscribers.)

Fab-fit-fun-spring-2017-0108

I take a collagen and biotin supplement daily, so I’m always happy to try out a new biotin vitamin – especially when it is in gummy form!

These strawberry gummies were good! (And they are free of lactose, gluten, and artificial flavors/sweeteners!)

Verdict: This box has a value of $369!!! (And that’s not counting any value for the FabFitFun TV channel access, or the bonus gummies.) As always, I find myself saying, “I don’t know how they do it!”

I’m so impressed with the high-end beauty brands they included. (And the Dr. Brandt, Karuna, Briogeo, and RealHer products are all paraben, sulfate, and phthalate free, too!)

The Roundie and Zip Pouch are great summer staples, and I was originally thinking they would make more sense in a Summer box, but considering the FabFitFun Summer box won’t ship until June, it’s great to have these items in advance for any warm Spring days!

And I love that FabFitFun let all subscribers pick between a bracelet or earrings. (Jewelry is one of those items in subscription boxes that can be pretty taste-specific!)

What do you think of the Spring 2017 FabFitFun box? 

Use coupon code MSA10 to get this box for only $40!

  1. I couldn’t resist, so I went ahead and ordered this box. I hope I get good variations!

    This is my first time spending more than $25 on a subscription box. *fingers crossed*

    • I just tried to order and was told it’s sold out 😭

      • I just placed my order and it went through and showed I was getting the spring box. Maybe try again?

        • Thanks I did and it worked 😊 I live in California so at first it said something about being past my delivery date idk anyways I’m in so excited about this box

      • Keep checking, it often goes back up for sale

      • I live in California and just placed my first order, so it’s working now. I’m so excited, but I have to hide it. My husband will say “what, another box?” Hahahah.

        • Gahanna, I’m in the same boat. 😀

          • Me three!

        • I started having my boxes shipped to work haha!

      • Don’t be sad. FFF box is highly, highly overrated. All of these things that are in the box are way overpriced to begin with. Such a scam. The beach round, for instance, is something you can order for less than $15 on amazon. And in fact if you order the exact same looking one from an asian company on amazon the quality is much better … weird, right? I know because I did this out of curiosity. My sister, daughter, and I all ordered the spring box so I was able to try all the lip colors … sticky and gross and I’m not sure who could tolerate the colors. The red was way too red, the lightest one was a funky beige, and the pink passable, but again sticky and nasty feeling. Really, this box was not in any way worth $50.00

    • Me too! I’ve been looking at the spoilers and reviews on this box for a while and this one sealed the deal. I couldn’t resist. I love pretty much everything in this box! The Dr. Brandt alone makes this box more than worth the price! I just hope I get variations I like. I would love the jewelry Liz got, and really hoping to get the nude or pink lip set! I wanted to be able to use the $10 off coupon, so I did seasonal for now, but if I really like this sub, I will upgrade to annual so I can choose some of the items every season. So excited to get my first box!!! 😄

    • I didn’t get those vitamins in my box ?

  2. Nice box, but most of the items have the most over-inflated values I’ve seen in a box.

    • That’s what I was thinking. I love this box but no way is that beach clutch worth $45. I would pa maybe $15-$20 for that. And gold plated brass jewelry is not worth anywhere near $80….you could get full on gold for that price.

      • I thought about that too, but if you consider the price of the box and the number of itens included in it, it’s like $5 each item, which is definitely a steal!

      • You definitely could not get a genuine solid gold cuff bracelet for $80. Solid gold is much more expensive than that. If this bracelet is indeed gold-plated solid brass, it’s going to be better quality than a gold-plated cheaper metal alloy. I don’t know whether it’s worth $80, but at least it will be nicer than the typical cheap costume jewelry found at fast fashion retailers like F21, etc. I think the $45 MSRP for the Milly zip pouch sounds pretty normal. Milly is a mid-end contemporary brand, with handbags retailing in the $250-$500 range. In any event, I think this is an amazing box for $50!

        • Thank you I was just about to say basically the EXACT same things. This box has amazing value! Sometimes the negativity on here is astounding!

          • I know! I don’t know how anyone could be negative about the value of this box! It’s even better than my beloved RZ box of style!

          • I don’t appreciate the over-inflated retail values either! Whatever you receive in these boxes is pretty much worth the price you paid. Many of the items are from indie sellers I’ve never heard of. These subscription boxes are the perfect way for them to test run their products. There’s nothing negative about the “negative” comments. If people want to pay good money for items that seldom make the mainstream markets that’s fine. Don’t be a hater because people don’t agree with the ‘value’ of these boxes.

          • I know.

          • the earrings broke the second i put them on.

      • There is absolutely no way you could get a real gold cuff like that for $80! I own real gold jewelry that is over $1,500. As for Milly it is a high end brand found a Bergdorf Goodman.

      • A plastic Cuff from Chanel retails for over $250 so the actual product actually has very little to do with retail values. These retail values are actually spot on in that it’s what they’re selling for on the websites of these indie dealers. Popsugar has shown truly inflated prices on some of the luxury boxes because the jewelry is already on sale for half the price at the time the box is mailed out. Not that it makes the product worse but maybe that’s how you should pick the box you want to order not how much it’s retail value is but it’s value to you.

      • Actually, Milly is a spend brand, so it may be that it retails for $45

      • Don’t be sad. FFF box is highly, highly overrated. All of these things that are in the box are way overpriced to begin with. Such a scam. The beach round, for instance, is something you can order for less than $15 on amazon. And in fact if you order the exact same looking one from an asian company on amazon the quality is much better … weird, right? I know because I did this out of curiosity. My sister, daughter, and I all ordered the spring box so I was able to try all the lip colors … sticky and gross and I’m not sure who could tolerate the colors. The red was way too red, the lightest one was a funky beige, and the pink passable, but again sticky and nasty feeling. Really, this box was not in any way worth $50.00
        And btw …. the clutch bag can be purchased at Nordstrom for $16, which is still too much. It’s basically a thick canvas with different sayings.

    • The values on most things are inflated, but you have to remember you aren’t paying full price. Even if you got the lower priced bracelet vs the earrings the values are as follows: (give or take a few cents)
      Towel- $6.75
      Pouch- $6.08
      Bracelet- $10.80
      Nail Polish set- $2.57
      4 face masks- $3.78
      Lip kit- $6.48
      Dr Brandt Exfoliator- $10.67
      Briogeo Spray- $2.70

      When you break it down into what you’re really paying for each item, it’s an amazing bargain even if you don’t like everything.

      • Thanks Jennybean, I didn’t think of it like that. That does make the box better in my eyes. I must be the opposite of most women haha…too many beauty products for me. I canceled most of my boxes and only get FFF, beauty box 5, and Serendipity and myself and my daughter can’t keep up with all the beauty products we have!!! I don’t have many women to give away my stuff to either 🙁 We eventually just throw out stuff because we forget about it then it gets old.

        • No problem! I think it’s easy to get caught up in seeing how overpriced things are or not liking stuff, but we forget we didn’t pay full price. I’m obsessed with face masks and I usually spend at least $5 on each one. Getting them for under a dollar each is amazing! I’m not a big fan of the pattern on the towel/blanket, but that’s basically what I would pay for a hand towel at Marshalls so how can I complain? I’m sure I’ll find some use for it. Even if you hate something, you can always sell it on eBay and definitely get your money back for that item. As far as you hating all the beauty products- you can always donate them to me!! Haha

          • Donate to you hahaha. I really should go on the swap page, I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. I have that face peel from Popsugar that’s sitting in my “xmas box” because I have rosacea and it wont get used. Everyone seems to love it. I haven’t sold on ebay in like 5 years, it became such a pain, maybe it’s changed now?

        • I’d recommend donating unwanted beauty products and toiletries. I moved recently, and was able to give quite a lot of unused beauty and bath products to a local shelter for people escaping domestic abuse. For me, it was quicker, easier (and obvs more gratifying) than trying to sell or swap!

          • All women should be able to feel good about themselves and the red 💄 that is not you may just make their day. Perfect.

          • Awesome idea!!

        • Could I make a suggestion to you and your daughter for the extra beauty items that you don’t use and end up throwing away? Find the nearest d.v. shelter and make a donation. They will give you a receipt for your taxes as well if you give them a value of the items. I’m actually collecting all kinds of beauty items/purse items/purses and packing purses for Mother’s Day for my local d.v. shelter. I’ve done this two other times and the ladies are so happy and grateful because some leave for safety with their children but without their purse.

          • That is a great idea – Mother’s Day purses for women living in domestic violence shelters. Thank you for being so giving and thoughtful!

      • This is a great way to look at it! I am super excited about this box 🙂 Even though 7 things are for me and the other 2 not quiet my style, it is a great buy! Each item I “like” is less then $10!! The other things will make excellent gifts!

      • Thanks for doing the breakdown, now I won’t have to do it if I decide to swap/sell anything.

      • Thanks for breaking it down like that! Great way to look at the cost and value of the box.

    • I had thought the same thing with the necklace then I went on the website of where it came from and they were dead on the price. So they are just high ticket items …yes you may be able to get something similar but they are being honest with the price…I totally checked it out…The plastic cup for coffee, yes I could get at a dollar store but this one had no BPA …I am happy with what I have received so far and if you find there is something you are not that happy with…put it aside and use it as a gift for someone.. 🙂

    • I totally agree. Those “roundies” are everywhere. $50??? I think not. Easy pass for me. I’m not impressed. I’d rather go shopping and spend the money on stuff I want.

    • Agree….that “roundie” isnt any better than using a cut up $5 walmart sheet that i can toss out once it gets too dirty. They have cute prints too 😏. $50??? Its SMALLER than a regular sheet!!! I dont get it???? More like $5!

      And i saw a real LEATHER Milly clutch at TJ maxx on clearance for $20 the otherday….still didnt like it. Dont see how this one with a nylon cord can go for $45.

      Those AJ luv earrings…def should get real gold for that rsv. Good quality fantasy = about $6…which is what you end up paying for them off a $40 box

      So everything seems to be “worth” about what you pay on a $40 box…full spoilers didnt help…still on the fence bc even though i want SOME items (facewash)…i dont care for more lipsticks, nail polish, even at $5-6 discounted price. And i have absolutely no use for tiny bedsheets or pouches with bad quotes.
      Mmmm why did they have to incude that face wash and complicate my life 😥😂

      • I challenge you to find real gold ear climbers and studs for $85! Just go buy the face wash and then off to Walmart for your sheet! Why would you even consider a better box you ridicule?

        • lollll

        • Lol i know right? people obviously don’t know how much REAL GOLD costs.. but for reals if you just want the face wash.. it retails for $79, the box is only $50. whats complicated about that?

      • Tiny bedsheets!!! bhahahahaha (rolling over here)

    • I don’t appreciate the over-inflated retail values either! Whatever you receive in these boxes is pretty much worth the price you paid. Many of the items are from indie sellers I’ve never heard of. These subscription boxes are the perfect way for them to test run their products.

      • I subscribe to Art of Organics and Beauty Hero where you get full size items worth more than the cost of the box, in the hopes they’ll introduce you to a product you love and then you’ll keep buying. The products are incredible and organic. I’ve been thrilled and cancelled most everything else. I personally like this FFF box a lot, will use everything in it, but in terms of best bang for your buck, the first two are the best. Since they’re full size items they’re selling you’ll see how much it’s actually worth. It makes the most sense to me and the items tend to be new to lines and not about to go on sale.

    • Definitely these are ludicrously overinflated values – I wouldn’t dream of paying 80 bucks for a cuff like that. You can get very similar jewelry, both cuff and earrings, for peanuts on Ali Express. That said, there’s no such thing as a free lunch, you don’t get something for nothing, etc. etc. – and the box is worth it for the price. There are some very nice items in it, and it’s fun to get the box in the mail and open it. I think the price of the box, both for what it contains and for the fun of receiving it and unboxing it, is more than worth it.

      • Omg! As soon as i saw the earings, i hit up the $.99 jewelry at Ali and found some with the jacket style i like more than climbers. And also got a stella & dot lace cuff look alike id been wanting since last summer for $2 and i love it!😂 they may or may not be the same quality, but they are also fantasy jewelry so i wont feel bad losing them.

        Unfortunately, i also got suckered into some really nice french imitation jewelry ive been lusting after seeing oiu please reviews and my cart is $24 now 😔…dont know if ill buy it or wait till i go back to Paris to get the real deal. Id get the Oui Please box, but no knowing what youll get inside, and a couple of those pay for my airfair 😲💸 and i stay at hostels so the box isnt worth it to me bc id rather save the $600 put it towards ACTUALLY going to paris for a week :/

        • Can you try to put the link to Ali… maybe down below that says website. 🙂

  3. This is an awesome box and I cant want for mine and all the add ons I ordered. It hasn’t shipped yet :(.

  4. I am uncertain whether to try or swap the beauty products. Does anyone know how the exfoliator works on sensitive skin and if the leave-in is good for curly hair?

    • Both products should work for you. Just use more water with the exfoliater so it is less intense and don’t use as often maybe 1-2 times/week. You can also mix a little in with your face wash so you get results but will be gentle on your skin.

      • Thanks!

    • My skin is slightly sensitive and I felt this exfoliant was too abrasive. I didn’the break out, but my face was pink for about an hour. I prefer the ORG that was in the editors box. It didn’t bother my skin at all. In fact, I bought four of them on Ebay because I fell in love with it.

      • The ORG spray is amazing!!!

      • I love the ORG spray. I’m looking forward to the briogeo because I had some volumizer from Birchbox last summer that was amazeballs. I kept the container so I could remember to buy more. It’s a little spendy and I’m cheap when it comes to hair care.

        What I’m worried about: I have over 100 bottles of nail polish, so not excited unless I get these exact colors. I don’t have these ones. The lip kit is never going to be used. I’m hoping for nude so I can at least try it. The jewelry is never going to be worn. I don’t think I chose. I don’t remember. I think I ignored that email on purpose. Anyhow, I don’t wear bracelets and my ears are gauged. Sigh. Oh, and that bag… meh. Not into it.

        I like the roundie and always have a use for exfoliators and face masks. So, I guess I’m only excited about 4 of the products, potentially 5. The jewelry and bag will make good presents.

  5. I LOVE THIS BOX!!!!!!!

  6. Quick question based on all the comments I’m reading: what do you guys mean when you say you’ll “swap your products” if you don’t like them? Where do you go to do that? How does it work? I didn’t realize this was a thing.

    • My subscription addiction has a swap section. You have to request access to it, & it may take a while for them to remove you. But after you can put up any items from boxes you don’t like & swap for items you do like with other members. It’s a wonderful service. Just look up mysubscriptionaddiction swaps & it should he relatively easy to find.

      • Oh awesome, thanks for all the info guys. I’ve added myself to the waitlist. Hopefully will be accepted soon enough. Another question: is the only cost in swapping only the shipping cost one induces? Or do we pay for the product itself in some way?

        • You just pay the shipping to mail to your swap partners.

        • There is no cost other than the cost of shipping the items, you propose swaps based on what you want and that person can accept, decline, or counter offer.
          I started not that long ago and the other swappers with very informative and understanding of my lack of experience.

          I am warning you, it is addictive!!!

          • Excellent! Thanks for the info everyone 🙂 and for being so prompt.

        • Each swapper is responsible for their own shipping. Mostly people swap RV for RV but it all works out. No money exchanges hand unless you do a swap through EBAY.

    • There are also multiple trade groups on Facebook to join.

    • There are also pleanty of swap groups on Facebook. 🙂

  7. I am too excited to get my box! I’m happy with absolutely EVERYTHING in it! I chose the earrings, but now wish I had chosen the bracelet, I may have to see if someone is willing to swap, I’ve never swapped before but, I want that bracelet! LOL Also, every single item in the box, stays with me, no gifting ANYTHING, well unless I DON”T get the deep red lip stain! The roundie will be for outings at the park, etc., this for me, is a phenomenal box! The vitamins are a plus, because I have extremely fragile and thin hair, so I will try them, and hope they spurn some growth and fullness. I am over the moon, and so happy I didn’t cancel my sub! I started my FFF sub with the summer box last year, I was kind of disappointed, but surprisingly I used a lot of the items! I’m on pins and needles waiting for my box! Hurry up!!! LOL Thanks Liz, your reviews are so great!

    • Yay! So glad you’re excited for the box!

      • How did you choose bracelet or earrings? It didn’t give me that option ):

        • Sorry, the choice option was only available before the boxes started shipping. If you sign up now, you’ll get one of the two at random. (But you’ll be set for making your product choice for the Summer box.)

          Hope that helps!

  8. Really, really love this. Can’t wait to get mine!

  9. I am so stoked! I can’t wait to get my loot- including the over $200 of add-ons I am getting! I’m starting to see why they are able to include so many awesome goodies in the box. They cash in on the add-ons.

    • Same!!! I had so many add ons that i paired down to a bare minimum of 160$ thats coming my way! Im so stoked for this box with the add ons, it makes up for a horrible March PSMH box 🙂

  10. Where is that bedroom furniture from?? I LOVE IT!

    • The bed is from CB2 from a few years back and the nightstand is a vintage piece from Kent Coffey’s Tableau line. It was a great thrift store find 🙂 Hope that helps!

  11. I am BLOWN AWAY. I will not be swapping anything in this box, and in fact will be trying to swap for more gummies and face masks. SO HAPPY with FFF! Being an annual subscriber is so worth it!

    • Well you should have plenty of gummies to swap, after the “great gummy debacle of ’17” lmaooooo 😝😝😝😝

      • 😂

      • What gummy debacle? ? Lol

    • I’ll probably be looking to swap the masks, just cause my oily as heck skin really doesn’t need any more hydration.

      • If your skin is oily, it’s over producing oil to compensate for dryness so you should definitely give the masks a try

    • I’ll swap my face masks! 😁 I don’t use them.

  12. Great box.. I’m having some envy that I didn’t stick it out on this sub now.. Thanks for the awesome review, Liz! (Go scare Eric hehehehe)

  13. I just signed up, thanks Liz! I’d better make sure to intercept the mail before my husband gets home. There are too many subscription boxes coming my way. I am afraid I won’t get particular items I like, though. I am sure that I won’t randomly get the tie dye roundie or the red lipstick, but I could always check the swap site.

  14. Glad I signed up annually. This box is even better than what I’ve expected! Does anyone know how to put those earrings on?

    • For the earrings – hook them in your ear like a regular earring and then sweep it up along your ear. If you look up “how to wear ear climbers” on youtube/google you should be able to find a little how-to video. Hope that helps!

      • Thank you so much!

    • I just added a picture of me wearing the ear climbers in the non-pierced way. Hope that helps, too!

      • That’s awesome, Liz! Thank you so much!!

      • Liz, is the post of the climber thin enough to put in your hole? (Sounds dirty:/) It looks thicker than the average earing post. I would like that option as well…

  15. FFF is usually my favorite because as a very picky person, it gives you the ability to choose some of the items. I’m ok with this box. I definitely made a mistake in choosing the earrings over the bracelet. It would’ve been nice to have a picture beforehand. I hate gold in any form and thought I was safer with the earrings. Had I known what the bracelet looked like, I would have picked that because it’s kinda light and really not much there. My cousin probably prays I get gold items because i always give them to her lol.

    I’ve never done a trade and given that theres always a few things i never use, including anything gold, I should look into it.

    • Jennifer, the swapping forum is amazing. The woman ( and few men) have created a wonderful community. I just started over there a few months ago and I feel so welcomed. You can always just browse the forum and swaps just to get a feel of it. Good luck, and I guarantee that there’ll be plenty of silver bracelets for gold earrings listed.

      • Thank You, I’ll have to try it. I had over 4 full big bins filled with items I didn’t want. My friends and family come over and now I’m down to 1. My cousin did a lot of christmas shopping from it.
        But in the future, I’d like to be able to use stuff instead of giving it away.

  16. Overall a great box! My only disappointment (that’s probably too strong of a word) is that I got that same Dr. Brandt item in Boxycharm a few weeks ago and I haven’t run out of that hair product yet from when it was in Popsugar. So, not truly complaining but not truly thrilled either. I do love face masks and nail polish so for the non-spoiled items, about 50% winners isn’t too bad.

    • This is a different one then the boxycharm one. The boxycharm one was the black bottle & this is the blue bottle.

      • According to others commenting on it, the only difference is the scent. But at least between the 2, I will have several months worth.

  17. This is an incredible box for me. The only thing I MIGHT swap is the polish set.

  18. Love this box!!! It also feels very spring to me. Now that the CA rains seem to be more under control I am ready to take my roundie wine tasting, and I should be able to swim in my pool by May at the latest.

  19. Hooray! I’m so excited that I took advantage of the Editor’s Box at half price and will be receiving the Spring FFF! I have a feeling the add-ons will be hell on my wallet, but since it’s a quarterly subscription I’m letting myself off the hook. Also glad I chose the earrings instead of the bracelet 🙂 Depending on which variation of roundie and lip kit I receive I may have to decide to upgrade to select. Anxiously awaiting my email with shipping/tracking info!

    • My 1st subscription was in the fall of 2015 and ever since all of the boxes have rocked! I looked at previous boxes and FFF has gotten so much better with the items. So I joined at the perfect time. I’m definitely loving this SPRING BOX!!

  20. I am on the fence about ordering this. While I think it’s a great “spring break” box, I don’t need anything it in. Also, I really only want the “slay all day” pouch. Anyone not want theirs?

    • If I get that one I’ll be swapping it – but I won’t know until I get it.

    • I really want one of the “beach” options. I’m willing to trade if we don’t get the ones we both want.

    • If i get the “slay all day ” pouch i will gladly swap it. Its the only one out of the 4 i wont be happy with.

    • I really want the haute mess one, on the flip side it looks like interests are pretty varied on that one so hopefully everyone can get the one they want!

      • Cheyenne, I got the Haute Mess. Which one did you get? Or have you already swapped?

    • I got the “slay all day” pouch which is the only one I did NOT want. Will happily trade if you got something else!

  21. For me, this box is a 100% hit! I just broke my buying ban and re-subbed for the first time in a year or so with FFF.

    Every item is perfect and even though I can’t personalize my items, I think I’ll be happy with whatever I get.

    And when it arrives, I’m going to have an overwhelming need to want to go to the beach!

  22. This might be the best FFF box for me yet! 🙂

  23. Does anyone know: if I order an annual subscription today, are the selection for the spring box still available to me?

    • no

    • Selections for Spring closed on March 4th. Next selections will be for Summer box.

    • I ordered spring box today

  24. Aw, man. I’m so disappointed I didn’t sign up earlier. The spoilers didn’t really thrill me but the non-spoiled items are great. agh. I just signed up for the annual sub, hoping to pick my items, and you can’t pick your items anymore (wish that was clear when signing up), but you can still get the spring box. 🙂 🙁

    • oh, fwiw, you also don’t have the option of choosing both jewelry items anymore.

      • Do you mean you can’t choose both jewelry items (before you could get both for $10) or you can’t choose at all? I’m tempted to get the box, but only if I can choose the bracelet. Thanks in advance for the info! 🙂

        • you can’t choose which jewelry item you get AND you can’t choose to get both items for an additional $10

  25. “Let today be the start of something new”
    I’m going to get a cheap frame and hang that page up 😁
    This box is seriously so amazing, I hope this trend continues! The pastel colors are prefect for spring!

    • Great idea! The floral print on that page is gorgeous!

      • And the box itself is gorgeous!

  26. Brass may not be hypoallergenic for everyone. While it is free of nickel, it has a lot of copper, and rose gold is also part copper, so it can also still turn your ears black or green. (Coat with clear nail polish before wearing and it should help.)

    • That’s also my concern. I’m giving the crawlers a shot right now, so I guess I’ll find out soon.

  27. Just wow… I’m obsessed with every single item in this box. Wish we were getting the Gummies in Canada but can’t complain. May be their best box ever!!

    • Hi just wondering how you know the gummies won’t be shipped to Canadian subscribers? Will something else be shipped instead? Thanks!

  28. I’m happy!

  29. #THANKYOU! Love this box!

  30. I just subscribed to this box yesterday hoping that I’d like the unspoiled items more than the spoilers (since I wasn’t a huge fan of any of the spoilers except the bracelet). Now I can say I’m so glad I subscribed; the Dr. Brandt’s item was worth the entire box alone, even if I didn’t like any of the other surprise beauty items (which I do!!)

  31. This just feels like a summer/beauty box–and its MARCH. Both PS and FFF are really letting me down with what they perceive as “spring” inclusions. Their summer boxes arrive with plenty of time to still get the full seasonal effect for summer, so I disagree that its better to get them THREE MONTHS early. This box is also way too heavy on beauty products. Some actual fitness items would have really been nice (I’d take a water bottle for goodness sake!).

    • I so agree with you. I thought there would be more fit something.
      I feel the FFF TV is cool but we just had the Barra3 thing for winter.
      They are failing me here.

    • I have way too many water bottles and I love the skincare products! 🙂

  32. Whoa, I was whelmed by the spoilers but what a graet box! I just had a lightening bolt, too – I’l l use the pouch to store my sheet mask collection!

  33. I love this box! I’m so glad I subscribed! I know I’ll use everything in it. I chose to pay $10 more for both jewelry options and I ordered a few add ons including a mystery bundle so I’ll still have a surprise when I get my box lol. Can’t wait to see what I get!

    • Did you receive three items with your mystery bundle? Curious, because I only got two with mine…
      As per the FFF website on the add on page, “Each bundle contains 3 items. Multiply the surprise with multiple bundles!”

  34. Cant argue the value and deal of this box but it’s a miss for me. I guess I’m a fall girl 😂
    Already have or am getting the same items from boxycharm, don’t paint my nails, don’t like face masks, and still haven’t used up the sample of the conditioning spray from ipsy last month. That’s being great gifting items and great deal.

  35. This is my first box and I am kicking my self for not signing up sooner! Anything I wont use will be great gifts!

  36. I’m even more excited to receive this box now! This is definitely right up there with the Fall box. Great job FFF. I feel like they put a lot of effort into their boxes and try their best to satisfy their customers.

  37. I’m so amazed!!!

    I already knew I was going to be happy based on the earrings (and spoiling us that we all get to choose between earrings, bracelet, or both! keep it up!) and the lip kit, but I was not expecting to be so impressed by the un-spoiled items! Full sized dr brandt? Yes please! Full size Briogeo Rosarco milk I’ve been meaning to swap for? Yes please! Sponsored gummies as a bonus? MAKE MY HAIR LONGER!!!!

    Happy happy joy joy!

    (Does anyone know, however, why the color of this Dr. Brandt microdermabrasion is different from the black I’ve been seeing, and got in my BoxyCharm?)

    • This one is anti-aging and the other is just the non anti-aging

      • Actually they both say anti-aging on them.

  38. Has anyone tried the black Dr Brandt microdermabrasion product vs the blue one in this box? I’m wondering what the difference is between this and the Boxycharm one?

    • I just followed both links, as far as I can tell they are the exact same thing. But I think this one might be a minty scent while the black is a citrus scent

  39. Beautiful box! Surprised and happy to see dr.Brandt exfoliator. Fabfitfun tv… yay!! workout videos!!

  40. Ooh, what a lovely box! I’m excited to receive it. All the products look amazing. I had picked the earrings over the bracelet, but I now realize the bracelet is more my style. Never mind, though, because the earrings are beautiful and will make a great gift for my mom!

    I love the two summer-y products and like you said, we can use it for warmer Spring days. The lip kit looks nice. I went with the pink shade, hopefully, it’ll suit my skin tone.

    I also love me some Deborah Lippman! I’ve wanted to try the Dr. Brandt product but never got around to it so super excited about that one too. I use Briogeo leave-in conditioning spray and already have a bottle but it’s good to know I won’t have to buy the next one.

    I’m not one for eating the gummies and such so I’m glad its a sponsored item. Wouldn’t mind trying them out. Always here for the sheet masks!

    Thanks for this review.

  41. Wow, I’m actually most excited for the two beauty items that weren’t spoiled. To use the earring set, you must have two piercings in each ear, right? or can you use just the climbers, or the studs? I chose both jewelry items, because why not!? but I don’t know if I’ll be able to use them as intended

    • I was originally thinking you’d need two piercings for each ear, but I just tried out the climber on my ear (not as a piercing, just kind of clamped on my ear) and it works great! Hope that helps!

      • can you post a picture of how you did this?

        • I just took a picture and added it. Hope that helps! 🙂

      • Thank you so much for checking! I was gonna be bummed if I couldn’t use the climbers. I’ve never been much of a jewelry person until this last year (I’m 34, it’s sad, i know) so I’m excited to try something new!

      • Wow! Every item is a hit for me even the box itself is so cute! Excited to try the nail polish. I agree with Liz that now is a great time to get items for warmer weather. It’s already warming up here in the Midwest.

    • I’m pretty sure that with only one piercing, you’ll only be able to use the climbers or the studs at one time. Which will still look pretty, either way, but I am a little sad that I can’t wear them as intended, either! Still super excited about them, though!!

      • Nevermind, thanks Liz!

      • What a great excuse to get your ears pierced with a second piercing! 😉

        I actually have 5 in one and 2 in the other (I was an 80s teen; what can I say?) so I’m excited to see these 80s style climbers and ear jackets back in fashion. I see where Zoe BOS was suggesting the asymmetrical style of wearing the stud in one ear and the hoop in the other. That was big in the 80s too, but I never got into that style, and still can’t.

    • I was wondering that also. I’ve never worn climbers and only have one piercing in each ear. Someone told me you can wear the stud and pinch the climber on like a clip on eating. But not really sure how that would look, and I’d probably be paranoid about losing them. I guess we’ll just have to play with them and see.

  42. I thought I was excited about the Spring Fabfitfun box before, but I’m even more excited now! I can’t believe all the great products in there. I can’t wait to get my box now!! Hopefully it gets her soon.

  43. OMG! This is a good box! Can’t wait~

  44. I am thrilled that I went with my gut and ordered a second box!

    • Super considering this now also…I’m brokeasaurus rex but god it’s tempting. Such a great deal and stuff I’ll definitely use up eventually!

    • Me too!

  45. As a beauty junkie I am thrilled with this box!! Wasn’t dying over all the spoilers but the beauty products are beyond amazing! Anyone who missed out on the dr brandt boxy charm (I think it was) will be thrilled!

  46. I must say, I’m impressed. The contents make me happy!

  47. I just love this box. <3 Such a good value, I wish I would have ordered an extra one.

  48. Wow – awesome beauty brands that weren’t spoiled!
    Love it when FFF includes big name brands. Great box!

  49. I agree with you, Liz. I don’t know how they do it. I opted for both the bracelet and earrings (for an extra $10, why not!) and both look great. I’m not sure I’ll get much use out of the roundie but maybe I can gift or swap it. I think I’m most excited to try the FFF tv – lol.

    • The bracelet + earrings for an extra $10 is such a good deal!!

  50. Good box 😊
