FabFitFun VIP Box Review & Coupon - Fall 2013

I lucked out with FabFitFun this quarter – in addition to the box I pay for, FabFitFun offered to send me a complimentary box to review. Since my subscription box doesn’t arrive until next week, I’m reviewing the complimentary box. (I wanted to get this review up ASAP since the Fall box is still available for sale today but will likely sell out soon).

FabFitFun VIP Box Review & Coupon - Fall 2013

Each box comes with a card detailing every item in the box – “the big reveal!”


Gorjana Canary Scarf– Value $57

I love this scarf even more than I thought I would! (I knew about this for a while thanks to some FabFItFun spoilers). When fall comes around I tend to wear only grey, brown, and black clothing – so this scarf is a perfect combination of dark grey with the pop of color I need! I will definitely wear this scarf all the time!

(This scarf also came with a $25 discount code to Gorjana and Griffin).

SpaRitual Nail Lacquer in Illume – Value $12

Health Warrior Chia Bar in Acai Berry – Value $2

I love SpaRitual nail polish! It’s 3-free, vegan, and the formula is great. And I don’t think I have any other nail polishes in this color!

Standing Slim with Sadie Lincoln – Value $19.95

Orville Redenbacher’s Gourmet Naturals Classic Butter & Sea Salt – Value $3

I’ve heard so many good things about Barre workouts – I can’t wait to try this DVD. (It also includes a coupon code for 1 month of free online workouts).

Drinkwel Multivitamin Capsules – Value $2.49

Surface Trinity Protein Hair Cream – Value $27

I’ve tried these Drinkwel capsules before (I think my husband got them in a Birchbox Man box a while ag0). I’m not sure how much they really work, but I guess getting extra vitamins when you plan on drinking is a always a good thing!

I am pumped about this hair cream though! It’s gluten-free, paraben-free and vegan!

Starlooks Eye Shadow Palette in Ibiza – Value $41

Mini Game Pack, Awkward Family Photos – Sample

Subscribers will either get a sample of game cards from the games Awkward Family Photos or Loaded Questions. I guess these would make a good stocking stuffer item?

Missing from the box:FabFitFun VIP Fall Box Spoiler #2

Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Cleansing Foam – Value $28

I was searching for this item when I opened the box – I can’t wait to try it. Unfortunately it wasn’t in my complimentary box, but as long as it’s in the box I paid for – no complaints here!

Verdict: This is my favorite FabFitFun VIP Box yet. I really like the brands they included this quarter, and I’ve been wearing my new scarf since I took the the picture of it! I am very impressed by the value of this box too – nearly $200 worth of products!

What do you think of the Fall FabFitFun VIP Box?

  1. Question: How do you wrap your scarf in the picture above?? It looks so pretty and I’d love to wear it that way, but can’t figure it out. lol.

    • Thanks! I like circle scarves, so I just tie all my non-circle scarves together at the end. That’s my secret 🙂

  2. What a disappointing box! I loved the review of the last FFF box so I was really looking forward to my first box. I will try one more box but if it is anything like this one, I’m out.
    After I took all the items out and created my piles of good items vs give away’s, I only had three items that I had in my “keep” pile. The scarf, the hair cream and the eye shadow (which is not super great since it is not an “every day” shadow) Maybe the next box will be better.

  3. I just received my FFF VIB box last night; the box did not include the Bliss face wash; but even if they do ship the face wash out separately (as some of the other comments stated) I’m not sure if this is a box to keep. I do like PopSugar better than FFF so far.

  4. I purchased the Fall Box one week ago and I got an email saying that they aren’t shipping it till the middle of November, so I won’t even get my box till it’s almost December! Has anyone else gotten such a late delivery date? I tried emailing their customer service to ask why, but they never replied 🙁

  5. Do you ever write negative reviews? It seems that every box you review gets glowing reviews. I love your site but I’m not sure if you offer unbiased reviews. I thought this box was horrible. Orville Redenbacher popcorn?? Are they for real? I’m officially done with FFF.

    • Hi Kiki,

      I’ve gotten this feedback before and I appreciate it. Here’s a brief explanation on my rationale behind positive reviews:

      I always am honest when reviewing boxes, and I agree that in general my honest opinions of boxes are pretty positive. (I love trying out new products and never expect all the items in the box to be a hit for me, so I enter every review with relatively low expectations). There are some boxes I absolutely love (like this one – I wasn’t super excited about the popcorn, but I was excited about a lot of the other items), and I will give glowing reviews, there will be boxes that I like but haven’t been my favorite from the subscription (and I usually mention that in the verdict), and then there will be the rare box where I feel like the box company didn’t deliver on what they promised. A few examples that come to mind: Verbal Fancy Box April, September 2012 Whimsey Box.

      Fortunately, in my opinion most boxes deliver on what they promised (whether its a value, or a number or type of items), so that’s why most reviews from me are generally positive.

      I hope that helps, and I always welcome all feedback (positive or criticism) in the comments – I’m sure it helps everyone get a better take on the box!

    • I agree with the popcorn. It was almost insulting. It was definitely filler. It was just odd. And the Bliss face wash was missing from my box. With all the errors they’ve made in the last month, you’d think they would make a point to make this box perfect so I would forget the annoyance of billing errors & constant email updates about the errors.

  6. I was trying to keep this box a surprise for myself, but I’m just too impatient not to look. Love the review and can’t wait to get my box!

  7. wanted to share the email i just received! bliss is on the way!

    FabFitFun VIP,

    Don’t panic! Some of our FabFitFun VIP boxes were separated from their Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Cleansing Foam. Sorry for the mixup. Every Fall VIP recipient will indeed be receiving the Bliss cleanser.

    If you open your Fall VIP Box and don’t see your Bliss inside, rest assured that it’s on its way and will arrive in a separate package just a few days after your box.

    Don’t forget to share pictures and videos of your Fall Box (#FFFVIP) on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Youtube for a chance to win an iPad. Get a referral link here, which can help you earn your next #FFFVIP box free!

    • I was just going to post the email too! Glad they realized the mistake soon.

  8. Looks great! I love the eyeshadow palette, the DVD, the scarf and I hope we get the Bliss product.

  9. I am not as impressed as I am with Popsugar but no too bad of a box. Did anyone else get overcharged and then credited back? I was one of those people and I was told there would be something extra in my box. It has shipped but I haven’t received it as of yet. Just curious if they will follow through!

    • Hi, Angela:

      For some reason my reply posted earlier without the comment. Oops. Anyhow, I was also accidentally overcharged and they did include a ‘bonus’ item in my box. Nothing crazy amazing as I feel they rectified the situation quickly and it was an accident, but I appreciated that they followed through. I will definitely use the item and it has a value of about $8-$10 (don’t want to spoil it in case you get something different).

      • Thanks so much for replying! I actually just got my box today and I received the polish (watch it glitter) by Orly. It was a nice addition. Then I was totally bummed that I did not receive the Bliss foaming cleanser! I have since read that they will ship it out later. I am honestly starting to wonder if I want to keep this box. They totally messed up my first box and they recouped me by giving me a free box. Then the overcharge and now a missing item. I only knew about it because of this great site….it would have been nice to get a personal email so that we would know….weird.

  10. I’ve seen a few reviews from this box and it seemed none of them included the bliss face wash… Strange.

  11. Kind of disappointed and will not renew. Was hoping for something more special from this one.

  12. I love Barre3 videos. Sadie is awesome and cues just when you need it. I want the scarf and Bliss wash but already have the video. Thanks for your review!

  13. Though this box isn’t bad, I’m glad I didn’t get it. I’m more impressed with my popsugar box for 35, than this box.

  14. Mine just shipped yesterday and won’t be here til next week, but I’m so excited! I don’t care what’s in the box, I just want the scarf and the Bliss face wash!
