Now, time for the items!

Mer Sea Cozy Wrap – Retail Value $98

(Subscribers will receive one of three colors. Annual subscribers were able to pick the color of their choice.)

This cozy wrap is 100% polyester knit (SUPER soft) and measures about 93″ by 21″ (counting fringe).

Word of caution – this scarf sheds when you first unwrap it. But I have really good news! Even though it says hand wash, I put this through the laundry (sanitary cycle, then regular dry), and it came out perfect! Just as soft and cozy as before with no shrinkage and zero shedding!

And here is the wrap on:

It’s the coziest thing ever! I’ve just been wearing it around the house all the time as a wrap (because I’m always cold), and I love it!

Aside from using it as scarf/wrap, FabFitFun also recommends using this as a bed runner:

Cozy all the things!

Private Party Gym Bag – Retail Value $59

You’ll get one of three phrases on the bag. Select members (annual subscribers) will be able to pick the bag of their choice!

It’s denim with cotton straps, an outer zip pocket, and measures about 20 inches long.

And I discovered that this denim is the perfect fabric if you want a fun place to display your enamel pin collection!

Here is the bag on to give you a better sense of scale:

(Ignore my lack of gym clothes!) And the flip side is blank:

 

trèStiQue Matte Color & Shiny Balm Lip Crayon – Retail Value $28

(Subscribers will either receive Tuscan Wine shade or this Florence Fig shade. Annual subscribers were able to pick the color of their choice.)

This cap is deceptive! Underneath is the actual lip crayon! It glides on so smoothly and provides great pigment.

And on the flipside you have a balm for extra moisture. (This is tinted but really doesn’t provide any color.)

Here is the lip crayon swatched:

The JetSet Diaries Beanie in Pink – Value $49

(All subscribers could pick between a belt or a beanie for their fashion item for this box. You’ll either receive the pink or black beanie.)

This is a soft 100% acrylic knit beanie with a looser fit – perfect for my oversized head! 🙂 (I’m wearing this in the scarf picture earlier in the review.)

Imm Living Coxet Wire Heart Ceramic Jewelry Holder – Retail Value $33

This jewelry organizer is ceramic with a rose gold metal insert that stands like this:

It measures 5 inches in diameter and it’s about 5 inches tall, too.

So cute! I love the minimal design – I think this should work for most decor styles!

 

DP Hue Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse – Value $35

(All subscribers were able to pick between this item and the MOLR Dental Club Organic Carbon + Coconut Teeth Whitening Powder and Toothbrush)

This is great! It lathers similar to a regular shampoo, and you use it instead of shampoo and conditioner to help clean your hair and remove product build up. (It’s color safe, too!) Normally when I try a non-shampoo + conditioner treatment, my hair looks a little off the next day, but not with this!

My TagAlongs Hot & Cold Gel Pack – Value $15

What a practical fitness item! (And I think this is the cutest heat pack I’ve ever seen!)

It’s freezable and microwavable, so it works for both heat and cold therapy.

And it’s small and slim enough to be easy to pack in a gym bag!

Whish Renewing Mud Mask  – Value $48

Whish is an ingredient-conscious brand that makes fruity-scented bath and body products, but this is the first time I’ve tried their skincare1

If you like quick beauty treatments, this mask is for you. You only need to leave it on for 2 minutes! I found that it made my skin softer and super clean – a perfect quick mask for the shower!

Deco Miami Lavender Cuticle Oil – Value $12.50

This cuticle oil instantly moisturized my cuticles, but more importantly, it smells SO GOOD!

Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Cleansing Cloths – Sample

(This is an extra in the box that doesn’t count toward the total value of the box for subscribers.)

Props to FabFitFun + Cottonelle for making this packaging cuter than I thought possible for flushable wipes! (Also, good alternative use for these – keep them in your glove compartment for cleaning up the car, wiping your hands after pumping gas, etc.)

Verdict: This box has a retail value of $377! (And this box is the lowest value variation you could receive!) Amazing! While I wouldn’t necessarily pay full retail price for some of these items, would I pay $50 for everything in this box? All day, every day!

And I am obsessed with this scarf! Between it and the heat pack, I’m going to have a much cozier/warmer fall!

What do you think of the Fall 2017 FabFitFun box? How do you feel about the mystery choice options this season?

  1. Got my box yesterday. I’m not as thrilled as with my first box (Fall last year was so great) but I do appreciate that they really listen to customer feedback – they included two fit items after so many folks were unhappy with the lack of fit items and they made the extra selections visible after summer’s unhappiness with selections. Hopefully this means they’ll stop with the sayings on things (although they have been doing that for a while so that may work).

    I’m happy with my black belt and beanie (not sure I’m excited about the whole slouchy beanie look but I’ll give it a shot). I’d like the bag better without the saying but I like that it’s small and not stiff – I am going to a gym with small lockers and it is nice to have something that won’t take up more space than my stuff. Other items (mask, cuticle oil, lip crayon) are things I already have a backlog of that I need to use up.

    So nothing in the box I’m super excited about but all items that I’ll be able to use and I really can’t complain for the price!

    • Despite feeling the value of this box was fair price-wise, I’m somewhat disappointed. I assume this is a glitch because I’ve always had great experiences with FFF.

      Pros…
      1) I really like the scarf and will use it a lot ( but would never pay $98 for it). Soft, fluffy, pretty color, substantial.
      2) Hot & Cold back will be handy.
      3) Lipstick is really pretty and a great color that will probably suit many people!
      4) Mask is great!
      5) Cuticle oil is nice and I imagine using it regularly.
      6) Baby wipes are handy.

      Cons…
      1) The gym bag is really flimsy. Also, I would be embarrassed sporting a bag that said, “Meet me at the Barre.” There’s no way it has a value of $58. It reminds me of something you would buy for a goody bag for a little girl’s birthday party.
      2) Beanie is thin, stretches out immediately, and tiny.
      3) Jewelry holder is poor quality. I honestly can’t even figure out how it holds earrings properly. They all just fall. It would be a huge pain to store earrings on this.
      4) Whitening powder is the absolute worst thing in the box…..If you don’t mind having to brush your teeth six times after using this to get the black from between your teeth…and you don’t mind your gums becoming sore…and you don’t mind having to get out steel wool and Ajax to clean the residue off your sink after using it…and you don’t notice any difference in the color of your teeth, then use this. I put it right in the trash.

      I really love Fabfitfun and have been very happy with previous boxes. Overall, I feel like it was a fair value since I liked quite a few of the items.

      When you order subscription boxes you know in advance that you may not love everything, but I really feel the need to warn people away from the tooth powder.

      • I feel exactly the same about each item as you do, except I chose apple cider hair rinse instead of the whitening powder (and I love the hair rinse).
        I just signed up in summer so there isn’t too much for me to compare, but I do hope winter would be better than this.

      • Black from tooth powder is messy in the sink for sure. But it shouldn’t stick to teeth and gums. Floss first and often.

      • I completely agree with the horrible charcoal teeth whitening product! My vanity was a mess!!! And my teeth were filled with black specs after I brushed with regular tooth pat afterwards! I eve used my Sonic toothbrush! 🤔

        • I actually didn’t have any issues. I wet the tooth brush and dipped it gently in the charcoal powder. Brush my teeth and rinsed with some of my Q brand club soda I had in the fridge. The carbonation got rid off all traces of charcoal in my mouth. My sink wasn’t too bad. I just wiped it clean with a wet paper towel. My teeth were squeaky clean afterwards. I would definitely use this again.

          • Yeah, I’ve used the charcoal whitening powder 3 or 4 times now and haven’t had any issues. I also just wet my toothbrush and dip it in. I clean my sink out when I’m done so it doesn’t stain and I never had a mess when I’ve opened it. As long as I brush and floss after I haven’t had any residue left on my teeth.

  2. I received my box today, and the two items I selected, I received the other item. I asked for the beanie and received the belt and picked the lighter shade lip color and received the darker red.

    I did contact them and they said they would ship out those two correct items (after they had me send a picture of the wrong items).

    Has anyone had this happen? Should I really be expecting the two correct items to be mailed out?

    • Yeah, their customer service is really good at sending replacement items. It might take awhile though since they’re still shipping boxes.

    • They’ll correct the mistake. They sent me a replacement necklace when I was sent one with a faulty clasp. I couldn’t even send them a picture because it had fallen off my neck the first time I wore it. I was very impressed as I didn’t expect them to replace it….I just wanted them to know. But, it may take a while.

      Great customer service

  3. I’m an annual member and I got add ons but I haven’t received a shipment notification, does anyone now when they ship annual members boxs? I thought they were supposed to be shipped first

    • Nikki, if you were billed on Sept 1 (which annual members and members who bought add-ons should have been) they will ship your box by Sept. 15.

    • I’m annual + add-ons. FedEx tracking shows my box shipped today although my FFF account still says processing. Arrives in 10 days.

  4. Love it!! Better in my hot little hands!! Mine all mine! No swaps for me. Only negative… i got the black beanie…I picked the blush scarf. Wish i got the pink beanie. Everything else.. home run!!!!

    • Hey I actually wanted the black beanie! If i get the pink one would you want to swap?

      • Sure.

    • Teglar, did you already swap for a black beanie? I have pink and would like black.
      Thanks!

      • I would swap pink for black! Lmk:)

      • Would like to swap MEET ME AT THE BARRE for GYM & JUICE Lmk:)

      • I haven’t. Here is my swap id. I haven’t listed it, yet.
        swap.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/user/4875/profile

        • It’s so frustrating. I’ve tried to log on to swap, but it says by invite only. 😢

      • Did you already swap? I have the black one and would love the pink!

    • I got the pink beanie and would love to swap!

      • Britany, I got the black beanie & would love to swap for the pink one. Let me know if you’re still interested in swapping.

        • YES! That would be great! I am not sure how to go through the swap process?

          • I’m waitlisted for the swaps board & can’t enter my email address in the comments, so will have to wait until I can list it on the swaps board. Will post as soon as that happens.

          • Same here, Gal! It’s a little frustrating! Would love to be able to participate in swaps! I wonder who has to invite you?

    • When can you pick the items you would like for the next box? I don’t believe I ever been give options.

  5. Did anyone have the option to choose a belt? I recall choosing the black or tan belt but don’t see it in this spoiler? (Still waiting to receive my box…)

    • Liz picked the hat instead of the belt. We don’t get to choose the color of the hat or belt.

  6. Nice review! I’m excited to get this. Love the look of the beanie, the bag and the scarf. The lipstick and the heating/ cooling pad will be handy.

    Happy to get cuticle oil and maybe the jewelry holder (we’ll see!) Jewelry holder will make a cute gift with a pair of earrings.

    I’m happy. Fun box for the price!

  7. If I am thinking of signing up for the first time as a new member, will I still get a choice between the beanie and belt and the hair wash and charcoal?

    • I just signed up and chosing between those is closed for the fall boxes.

  8. If anyone gets the Meet Me at the Barre bag and wants to talk swap, let me know!
    I only joined FFF for that specific gym bag and I don’t know what one I will end up with.

    • I’ll definitely swap with you if I end up with it. I am hoping for the juice one.

    • I got the barre bag. If you want to swap, let me know. I prefer either of the two other choices.

      • I’d love to swap! I’m still waiting for my box. As soon as I get it I’ll let you know which bag I received!

      • I got Gym and Juice and my teenage ballerina would love the Barre bag for dance if anyone has one to swap!

        • I have the Barre bag and want the gym and juice. Are you still looking to swap? i am currently on the wait list for the swap board.

    • If you can’t find anyone to trade, check eBay!

    • I have meet me at the barre. I will swap for either of the other sayings. I don’t have a swap account though. I’ve been on the waiting list. :/

    • I dont have a swap account either, but want to swap. I got the Barre bag and would like the Cupcake one. Any idea how to swap without the account or sharing email?

  9. The retail value of the items are completely inflated. $98 for a 100% polyester scarf??? $48 for an acrylic beanie? And $59 for a cheap, homemade looking duffle bag??? And none are made with quality materials. Yes, $50 is a deal for all the items, but come on, FFF!! Every single one of those items are what ends up at TJ Maxx at 80% off.

    • I agree, the values shown are highly inflated! But, I still do think this subscription is a good deal for all the things you get.

    • I believe the prices reflect the retail rates for Los Angeles, where these items are created and made. They are also made by small women business retailers, that is the market for L.A.

      • Actually many items (scarf, gym bag, jewelry holder, gel pack..) are made in China not LA.

  10. This box don’t impress me. FFF needs to add more stuff. There’s a lot of beauty products in this box.

  11. Blah. Only thing I like is the tre stique lip gloss/crayon…Christmas gifts all around!

  12. I’m excited for this box. Almost every item is useable for me.

    Thanks Liz for taking one for the team and doing the scarf wash test! I detest hand washing so its good to know it can be machine washed, AND that it stops shedding.

    • Yay glad you are excited about the box! (And happy to be the tester for the scarf! Anytime I see “hand wash only” or “dry clean only” on an item I say, “Challenge accepted!”)

      • Lol this made me laugh because I’m the same way

        • 🙂

    • Agreed! So glad to have gotten this tip before trying to use it. Thanks!

    • Unfortunately the washing only made my scarf shed even worse. I washed it on the delicate cycle and dried it, now it’s a complete mess and useless. So disappointed. I wouldn’t have used it anyway because of the horrible shedding before washing, but still.

      • Yes! Mine is a mess now and i did it exactly as she said to! The ends are unravelled, it’s no longer nice and soft, huge chunks of lint had to be peeled off. It’s so ugly now, I can’t believe following this advice ruined my $90 scarf 🙁

        • Hey Guys!
          So I always go direct to the source with product questions. I emailed MerSea on issue with the shedding. This was the response that I received…

          “Thanks for asking 🙂 . Yes, it is quite a fuzzy scarf! The best thing to do is to pop it in the dryer on medium heat. This will suck up most of the loose ends. A quick hand wash in the sink before you pop it in the dryer gets even more of the loose fibers off. We hope this solves the fuzz factor, it has worked with us over here!”

          I’m going to follow their instructions. Hope this helps.

  13. Did anyone else get an email saying their add ons will be shipped separately and ahead of their actual box? I found this odd as they have never done this before. Granted I had $430+ in add-ons 😶

    • I got an email saying one of my add-on bundles will be shipped separately, but it didn’t specify whether it would be before or after my box. I assumed from the way they wrote the email that it would ship after though.

    • I’ve received 3 separate emails saying 3 of my add ons will be shipped separately. A little worried because this happened to me with the summer box and though I received the separate item right away I ended up getting my box over a month late and only after multiple angry emails to customer service.

    • Yes, I have gotten 3 so far

    • I’m a Annual and i have add on’s but no email for me yet….

    • I received an email saying my box had shipped and over half of my add ons is missing from the email. I didn’t receive another email saying they were shipping separately. I contacted customer service, but no response yet. I’m really concerned because my add ons were Christmas gifts for other people. I really hope this is fixed! 🙁

    • My email included all of my stuff. I assume they don’t want to hold orders until all items are available, so they are shipping what they have now. It would be helpful if they listed what would ship later so you aren’t left wondering…

      • After reading all these post that say about add-ons being shipped separate and on back order makes me so glad all my stuff is coming at the same together. I got the mystery bundle and a purse.

    • I had about $300 in add-ons. My shipping email indicated everything shipped at once. Based on the posts on the FFF community boards, it appears the candles seem to be the hold up. This is just based on people saying that’s the common item and has not been confirmed by FFF.

      • I received my box but candles add-on has not arrived. Email said it would be shipped separately. I hope it doesn’t take too long.

  14. Was initially underwhelmed by the spoilers but I’ll use every item in this box. Now I just have to wait for shipping.

  15. Excited for the box. There are a few items I won’t use, but I just donate those to the women’s shelter, so hopefully get some use there. Just fyi, do NOT flush the wipes. Ask any plumber what they think of these wipes, and it won’t be good (but for plumbers, they are very lucrative). That said, they are handy as hand wipes or quick cleanup. I love getting these, but it’s a class action lawsuit waiting to happen. Worked for hvac/plumbing company, and these were one of the top causes for clogged toilets this summer.

    • I’ve been using these wipes for years and haven’t had problems with them.

      • Same with me- I’ve been using those cottonelle wipes for over a year and have never had any issues. And I’ve use them with my potty training toddler- sometimes 4 at a time

        • it probably says do not flush on the back of the package.

    • Totally! I rent a house,
      So I don’t care that much but I’ve had them out to snake because of wipes clogging the pipes at least once a year. Old home…

    • You are absolutely right! We had a $2800 plumbing bill this past summer because of “flushable” wipes.

  16. Does the pink beanie match the blush scarf?

    • YES! Very cute I just got mine

  17. Liz, do you know if you’ll be getting the variations for review? I can’t wait to get an opinion on the belt and teeth product!

    • I received the belt…the tan/brownish one rather than the black I would have preferred; however, it looks nice. I wouldn’t mistake it for leather (if examined closely) and it’s a little wider, I think, then depicted in the photo–but that’s a good thing for me since I prefer a wider rather than skinny belt. The only con is that the belt has a very slight, plastic odor. Nothing horrible at all, and I think it will fade as it “airs out”. I believe it was in a bag inside my box.

      • PJ, I received the black belt and after getting it, I’d prefer the tan one if you’re interested in a swap!

  18. Every season I vow not to look at the spoilers and every season I shamelessly cave the second I see the box review posted. I had been feeling very underwhelmed by the spoilers that had been released. I really wasn’t too thrilled about getting this box, but I must say after seeing this review I am actually pretty excited! I love the jewelry holder and the beauty/skin care products. I will use the beanie, gym bag, and ice pack. The only thing I really don’t have a use for is the scarf/wrap thing, but it looks pretty comfy so I will probably give it a try. Overall I am pretty pleased with this box. It’s definitely a huge improvement from the Summer box, at least for me. Now I just have to (not so) patiently wait for it to be delivered. *sigh*

    • I am going to use my scarf for my lap at work. My office is freezing year round. I can always use another blanket and that scarf is huge. I got a sample of the Apple cider vinegar solution. It stinks but works amazingly. I got both that and the charcoal toothpaste. I figure either would be a nice gift for the extra $10.

  19. Hey Liz – quick question: Some of the subs seems to offer deals for annual subscriptions (like I just scored what I think is a great deal for a 12-month sub to Emma & Chloe), but I only remember seeing seasonal coupon codes for FFF. Is that what you’ve noticed, too, or are there rare occasions when you can catch a coupon code good for an annual subscription from FFF as well? Figured I’d ask the expert. 🙂 Thanks!

    • I think you automatically get a discount when you sign up for an annual subscription. At least, I know I did without having a coupon code.

  20. I think I need to drop all my subscriptions until I’ve used up my stockpile of face masks (although one I can use in the shower is pretty great!).

    The box is ok. My year is up – I’m not sure if I’m going to renew or not.

  21. I only like the face mask and my add-ons. The rest of the box is for gifts.

  22. Love the box design and happy we are getting a face mask!

  23. Great box. I think the only thing I will gift is the jewelry holder. It’s cute but I don’t have a place for it.

  24. The most exciting thing in this box for me is the wipes!! I will at least use the mud mask but everything else is already swapped! Fingers crossed for winter, since I’m an annual subscriber.

  25. Although this box is not for me, which is unfortunate because I prepaid an annual last year, I do appreciate the practical items included: gel pack and wipes lol I know…

    Positive thinking- I can’t wait for Winter!

  26. Is the jewelry holder standing a little lopsided or is that just me? That may bother me over time… lol

    • Can’t unsee it now 😱

    • I noticed that too(!), and was wondering if it was supposed to be that way. 🙂

      • I went into the brand’s website and it doesn’t show the jewelry holder lopsided. You may to contact them directly.

    • I just got my box today and remembered your comment about the jewelry holder…mine stands up straight, not lopsided! It might just be the angle it was photographed?

  27. I am a bit bummed about the number of spoilers released so early. After the number of choices offered to annual subscribers, plus the two additional spoilers, I was afraid the box wouldn’t contain many surprises, which is part of the fun of subs, in my opinion. When I first started subscribing to FFF, they offered choices on 2-3 items, and that was it for spoilers. We had FIVE choices this time, plus two additional spoilers. Only two items (three if you include the bonus wipes) were surprises. Clearly I enjoy picking some of my options, or I wouldn’t pay to be an annual subscriber, but I still crave some mystery!

    • I’m totally with you! The only items that were surprises in this review were the cuticle oil and the mask- not as exciting as seeing three or four or even five items that are total surprises.

    • I actually like how many choices you get now. I’m gifting a lot less now and feel the value has increased as a result.

      • Cassi, I certainly understand that perspective. I just love the thrill of the surprise. It’s like opening a gift, especially since most sub box items are nothing I actually NEED, or would even buy for myself at the store. I guess you could say this is my version of gambling haha

        • To add a little mystery I like to get when they have it is the mystery bundle as an add-on. I always cave in and look at the spoilers so the mystery bundle gives me the excitement of a complete surprise. If I remember correctly it was 20$ and last time I got it I got some AMAZING products/jewelry!

  28. I thought the box was so-so when I saw all the spoilers, but now I kind of like it. I can use most of these although I wouldn’t buy them if I’m shopping with $50. I’m specifically excited about the cleansing cloth and all the cosmetic/skincare/hair products. I will probably gift away the jewelry holder since all I have are rings and necklaces.

    • I’m trying to decide what to do with my jewelry holder. I think the design is really cute but I’m not sure I have room for it. I have a large cat shaped earring hold, a wooden holder for bracelets and six antique dresses drawer knobs attached to my bedroom wall for hanging all my necklaces so I’m pretty full up on jewelry storage. I think I may give it to my little sister for her 10th birthday this month. At the same time though, I hate to part with it because it’s darling. Decisions, decisions.

      • Maybe you could use it for office supplies? Or keys near the door? Or hair accessories? I’m sure your sister would love it, though.

        • Good ideas, Jessica! None work for me (have two key holders, very short hair, office supplies sorted in tubs in my homeschool classroom) but I like the way you think. It looks like it’s too thick to store bobby pins on without them bending out of shape/becoming too loose till grip properly but I might give that a try.

          I probably will end up loading it up with jewelry and sending it to my sister, though. I love gifting. It’s definitely my love language.

        • Great ideas!!

  29. I love those cottonelle wipes! I have a pack in my purse right now that I bought at the dollar tree because they’re handy for wiping dirty hands and faces when I’m out with my kids. They smell soooooo good too!

  30. Turned out to be a pretty good box! I wasn’t sure about the beanie but it looks really cute…I think I would be happy with pink or black.

    I also chose the beanie and hair rinse but I was super curious about the belt and teeth whitener. Especially the quality of the “faux leather” on the belt. Any chance you will also be reviewing the other choices?

  31. I like this box, some stuff is useful for me, what’s not will make great gifts for friends who will enjoy it.

    The wrap, the cuticle oil, the mud mask will make for good gifts! I’m excited for the rest of the items + my add-ons.

  32. Love the box. Can’t beat the value; if it helps to look at the cost you are actually paying for the items in the box, here you go. Would have liked to see the belt – see how it looks on a real person.

    Gym Bag – $8.00
    Lipstick – $3.50
    Wrap – $13.00
    ice pack – $2.00
    Beanie – $6.50
    Jewel Holder – $4.50
    Apple cider rinse – $4.50
    Whish mask- $6.50
    cuticle oil – $1.50

    • I break the values down this way too. Really makes you see the deal you’re getting. “I got a $35 hair rinse for $4.50” sounds so much better. I’m really excited for a few of these items…and for all the add ons that I spent waaaay too much money on lol. No way I could pass up on them though.

  33. I like this box. Only things I don’t like are the jewelry holder & the cuticle oil. I already swapped the bag. Everything else I like!

  34. This is a hit for me! Of all the higher priced items, I think my favorite is the cuticle oil – small pleasures. 🙂 combined with my add-ons, this is my best box of the year.

  35. I didnt like anything in this box. I disliked it so much, I unsubscribed. I cannot see a 300.00 value, I don’t even see a 50.00 value. Just my opinion, though.

    • Agreed.

    • I am probably one of very few that LOVE A SURPRISE! I feel like they don’t have that hard anymore. I unsubscribed before the spoilers and I feel happy that I did. Well I would love getting the box and opening and seeing everything, then I would just have more stuff I most likely wouldn’t use. These are my thoughts only! I am glad most are happy with this fall box. I will miss some of those add on’s though….

    • Me too. I just want the wrap, and I’m hoping I can swap for it.

  36. For me, the beauty products saved this box. I am not happy with the gym bag because they all have corny sayings, but I could flip it around. I guess the WORKOUT (incorrect) spelling was never changed to WORK OUT (correct), regarding the error, WILL WORKOUT FOR CUPCAKES.

    • That’s been driving me crazy too!

      • I contacted FFF about the WORKOUT/WORK OUT and they said it was the fault of the supplier, but I don’t think they’re doing anything about it.

  37. This is such a great box! I have a use or a giftee in mind for every single item. I was bummed about the beanie before because it looked plain but now I’m really excited for it. The pattern is gorgeous. You are so beautiful and stylish, by the way. I love when you model stuff. It’s a great way to show dimensions and fit.

    • Aw, thank you so much, Jamie! 🙂 I don’t love getting in front of the camera, but I know it makes the reviews better if I model stuff!

      • I know I won’t be able to change your mind about having your phone taken with a few internet comments BUT: you have nothing to hide. You are beautiful inside and out and it shows in all your photos.

        It really does help to see the items on someone. For example the LE PopSugar Fall box poncho review you guys did was fabulous! I still haven’t ordered the box because I’m saving up for our Disney World Trip in December but seeing it on all your different shapes and sizes makes me feel confident I could pull it off. Normally I’d just think nope, that will look grumpy on me.

        So really – thank you so much for great reviews and don’t be camera shy! You are gorgeous, photogenic and you have GREAT hair.

        • frumpy*** but I’m loling at grumpy

          • 😂

      • Liz, THANK YOU SOOO MUCH for honestly saying you have an oversized head. I chose the beanie but was concerned that it wouldn’t fit because I have an oversized head too. After you saying that and seeing a picture of it on you I am beyond excited to get my new winter hat! Thanks again for being completely honest and open about everything in your reviews. 😀

  38. FFF did a great job curating this box. For $49, it is worth it to me!

  39. FFF always brings it home with the beauty products, which I always love! Kind of a hodge podge when I look at it but everything is pretty useful, girly and great value always! Liz are you wearing the lip crayon in this review? Sorry if you already mentioned it. Thanks!

  40. I’m not wowed by anything, but I can use or gift everything and I think this is a well-curated box for fall. I do wish they had the option of having the item plain (without the sayings) but I’m sticking around for the winter box.

  41. Would anyone like to swap my gym back? I got the gym and juice one. Let me know!

    • Yes! I want the gym and juice one. I’m not sure which bag I will get, but if I get any other variation please swap with me!

      • I’m actually looking to get rid of the bag completely! Do you have anything else that you would like to swap?

        • Me too! Would love to swap out my bag for something else. I got the “Will Workout for Cupcakes”

      • Hello!

        If you receive the Meet Me at the Barre bag and I get Gym and Juice, let’s talk!

        I joined FFF ONLY for that specific bag and I only have a 1 out of 3 shot in getting the saying I want! lol.

        🙂

        • Yay! I’m so in! If I get the meet me at the barre bag and you get gym and juice I would love to swap with you! I’ll let you know what I get

          • Great, Nicole! I will definitely be in touch with you! Thank you so much!

          • No, thank you for offering! 🙂

    • @lauren_stack please let know if you want to swap the gym bag 🙂

      • Hi Nicole – I am just looking to get rid of the gym bag completely. Do you have anything else that you would like to swap?

    • Any ideas on what you’d like to swap the bag for?

      • Pretty open at this point – just don’t have a use for the gym bag

  42. Great review, Liz! I plan on styling the gym bag just like you did lol I don’t work out so I’m just going to tote it like you have it styled 🙂 can’t wait for my box and add ons to arrive!!! 🙂 I hope I get the blush beanie that you did (I chose the beanie). It is definitely as cute as I thought it would be.

    • Yay! Glad you like the review! 🙂

  43. I will be getting this exact box, I just don’t know yet the specific variations (scarf color, gym bag, etc).

    I have a question – how bad is the vinegar smell on the hair rinse?

    Depending on how big the beanie is, I will have problems with that (small head). But I can totally gift it, so at least there’s an alternative.

    • Box twins! 🙂

      I was expecting the vinegar scent to be strong, but it actually wasn’t bad! (You can still tell it’s vinegar, of course.)

    • I found it to be pretty strongly scented but I hate the smell of vinegar. It works well and leaves your hair feeling amazing. I just used a strong scented body wash to balance it all out. The scent didn’t stay in my hair once dry.

  44. All in all a good box! I chose the belt and teeth whitener so I am curious to see more about those. I am excited about the face mask! I have so many unused cuticle oils. I don’t understand their appeal. But I can’t complain since I will enjoy everything else in the box!

  45. I like this box. It is fun. For winter I think some kind of tea, coffee or chocolate gift set would be fun!

    • Oh yes, fancy hot cocoa would be define. I’d also love to get some comfy socks, maybe either boot socks or big slouchy socks to wear around the house over leggings. I think bubble bath in a winter scent would be nice. I’m really hoping we don’t get any more scarves or gloves. An oversize cozy throw would be a nice addition. Some sort of product to help with chapped skin from the cold and wind would be really useful and appreciated.

  46. You look fantastic in the photo, and I love the bag!

  47. Cannot wait for my box and add-ons. Always spot on. Love FFF! Thank you for the review.

    • Yay!! Which add-ons did you get?

  48. I’ll use the wrap and beanie but that’s it for this box. Swap city for the rest.

  49. I actually groaned while looking at the previous items that were spoiled, but looking at the box as a whole, I really like it (minus the gym bag).

  50. Not my favorite box ever, but the curation is thoughtful and I am most excited for the mask and the wrap. Will be swapping the jewelry holder and beanie!!

    • I’m new to FFF, and am wondering about swapping that’s been mentioned in the comments. Where would I find people to swap with? Is there a forum or a FB page or something? Thanks!
