FabFitFun switched from an info sheet to a mini mag with this box and I love it!

fabfitfun-fall-2015-mini-mag

The magazine includes background info on the brands included in the box, and some tips too!

fabfitfun-fall-2015-print

I love that illustration too!

fabfitfun-fall-2015-umbrella

Tappan Collective Umbrella – Value $32

This umbrella is an exclusive collaboration made with Tappan Collective artist Ashkahn Shahparnia. Subscribers will get one of a variety of colors:

FabFitFun Umbrella options

(If you pay for a year upfront of FabFitFun, you get to pick out the variation you receive on certain items every box).

I like this color and the print, and I can always use an extra quality umbrella. Plus I love getting exclusive designs in subscription boxes. (I’m still waiting for that day when I see some stranger in public with an item I know is from a subscription box. Then I’ll approach them like a weirdo! “Do you love subscription boxes too?!”)

fabfitfun-fall-2015-hisy

HISY Battery Pack – Value $24.99

Subscribers will receive one of three colors for this charger – the pale green shown, pink or blue:

I don’t think I would have cared which color I received, but I think this one is my favorite out of the options.

Here it is next to an iPhone 6+ to give a better sense of scale:

fabfitfun-fall-2015-scale

It’s not too heavy, so it will be good purse item.

fabfitfun-fall-2015-tribe-alive

Glass Crystal Bead Bracelet by Tribe Alive -$49 Retail Value

The beads in this bracelet are made with hand-cut glass crystals. The info magazine doesn’t list the chain material, but it looks like the bracelets are very similar to these necklaces, which are made with 14k gold filled chain.

This bracelet comes in four different varieties for subscribers:

FabFitFun Bracelet Options

I’m going to try to swap for all of the other colors – I think they would look beautiful together and these bracelets are delicate enough to stack without adding much bulk on your arm at all.

Here is the bracelet on:

fabfitfun-fall-2015-bracelet-on

It closes with a clasp, so you can adjust it to get the fit you want, and I hope it will fit most subscribers.

Also, Tribe Alive is an awesome company, and I’m happy to see them in the box:

Tribe Alive utilizes a passion for fashion and responsible commerce as a platform to help alleviate poverty among women. We work with artisan partners all over the world to employ impoverished women at fair trade wages and give them access to a safe job, sustainable income and a chance to determine their own future. We strive to create positive change in the lives of women by providing market place access through the fair production and sale of our beautiful and unique pieces. We believe that every purchase should be made with a purpose, and that there is nothing more stylish than giving back. Hope is our message. Fashion is our medium.

fabfitfun-fall-2015-Manna

Manna Kadar Lip Locked Lucky Lip Stain – Value $24

(Good to know for swaps – both ends of package are sealed with clear sticker)

This lip product is designed to be a primer, stain, and gloss in one. The shade is somewhat close to my lip color, so I’m having a hard time determining just how much stain/pigment it adds. The shine is perfect though – not too glossy, and not sticky at all.

Here it is swatched below:

fabfitfun-fall-2015-swatch

One minor thing to add – the packaging of this LipLocked is different than the one on the Manna Kadar site – (4 ml vs 5 ml). Not sure if this lip stain packaging was created just for this FabFitFun box?

fabfitfun-fall-2015-fluid

Doctor D Schwab Flawless Skin Fluid – Value $39

(Good to know for swaps – foil seal under cap).

This skin fluid is basically a lightweight moisturizer with a luminous finish – I love it! And it’s all natural. I think this may be my favorite discovery in the box. I just tried it out, so we’ll see how long the luminous part lasts, but I think I’ll be buying more of this in the future. (Plus I love that this is a great item whether or not you wear makeup!)

fabfitfun-fall-2015-gold-mask

Gold Radiance Luxury Facial Mask – 2 Pack Value $65

(Good to know for swaps – both ends of package are sealed with clear sticker)

I’ve wanted to try this mask ever since I saw Kim’s instagram picture! (I have a slight obsession with all things gold, so we’ll see if these live up to the hype in my head!).

fabfitfun-fall-2015-strength-tubing

Merrithew Strength Tubing Ankle & Tone Body Tone + DVD – Value $33

I’m so excited to try this DVD! I just tried the video clip on the Merrithew site and I have a feeling it is going to be tough! (I definitely can’t push my leg out as much as they do!) The DVD includes:

  • 24 exercises in main program
  • 9 exercises in Bonus program
  • Workout time = 33 minutes (main program)
  • Workout time = 12 minutes (Bonus program)
  • DVD Length = 84 minutes

Here is the ankle tube out of the packaging:

fabfitfun-fall-2015-tubing

The black bands are made with velcro and go around your ankles.

fabfitfun-fall-2015-tassle

Purple Purse Foundation Tassel Charm – Value $10

FabFitFun partnered with The Purple Purse Allstate Foundation for the Fall box. I love this addition. Here is more on the foundation and ways you can support:

In 2014, over 140 community partners came together in support of Purple Purse through ongoing fundraising challenges from CrowdRise. This Purple Purse Challenge raised over $2,500,000 to help give survivors of domestic violence the financial knowledge, skills and resources they need to break free from abuse.

Proudly clip a Purple Purse charm to your bag and help domestic violence survivors break free from abuse. All proceeds from charm sales will support more than 160 Purple Purse Challenge nonprofits and the domestic violence survivors they serve. See a complete list of the organizations here.

Share a photo of the charm on your bag with #PurplePurse.

fabfitfun-fall-2015-gift-card

Picture it On Canvas $75 Gift Card (with free shipping; expires 12/1/15)

Jeweler’s Wife $15 Gift Card (with free shipping; expires 12/31/15)

(FYI – both of these offers say one gift card per order, so I don’t believe you would be able to stack them if you had multiples).

Awesome news about the Picture it On Canvas coupon code – you do not have to enter billing info to use it! (If your order is $75 or under). I’m still browsing the site for which item to pick, but I’m leaning toward the 12″ by 12″ Woodgrain Print ($75 exactly).

Also good to know about Jeweler’s Wife – you don’t need to enter credit card info for this one either if your order total is under $15! I was just testing out the checkout to see if I needed to enter my credit card info, and I managed to accidently place an order, so I recommend making sure you have what you want in your cart before you click “apply” on the gift card section!

Normally gift cards included in subscription boxes are “gift codes” that require a purchase of some amount – I’m so impressed that both of these are true gift cards!

fabfitfun-fall-2015-sample

Crest 3D White Brilliance 2-Step System Sample

And this box also included this 3D White sample as a bonus sponsored item. Not too exciting for me, but no complaints considering everything else that is in the box!

Verdict: I think this is my favorite FabFitFun box of all time. For one thing – I LOVE that the gift cards can be used as actual gift cards! What an awesome surprise! (And because of that I think it is fair to count the value of those gift cards toward the overall value of the box).

This box has a retail value of about $367 – I really don’t know how they do it with a $50 box, but I’m impressed! And I will use every single item, so the personal value is there for me too.

What do you think of the FabFitFun Fall 2015 Box? What are you going to buy with your gift cards?

  1. Just tried to use my Jewelers Wife gift card and the site told me “Coupon Code Not Found”…I have checked the number 3 times and I am putting it in correctly. I sent an email to Reed’s customer service…anything else I should do? Did anyone else have this problem with their code?

    • It’s actually a gift card, not a coupon, so you would enter the code near the end of checkout under giftcard options. Hope that helps!!

  2. Just received my box (I had them hold it as I was in the process of moving). I’m curious on how long the masks will stay usable? I’ve never used them before, so I don’t know if they expire. I was thinking of using them as a Christmas gift, will they hold up that long?

  3. I was able to stack 2 of the jeweler’s wife gift cards. I bought a $62 necklace that dropped to $32 with free shipping after applying both codes as gift cards! Very excited.

  4. I have been waiting since September 16th for my box with no luck. I contacted customer service and they said that my box had been lost!?!?!?
    Then they said they would send ANOTHER box on October 12th. Then, I receive notice on October 16th saying that my box had been shipped and the tracking number. Now it says that the USPS has received the PRE-SHIPPING information like the last time, but nothing else. *sigh* I had just signed up for a VIP membership. By the time I get my box we’ll have snow on the ground, IF I get my box.

  5. Got my box finally yesterday (10/15) so I might be the latest one! It was however my bday so it was a nice surprise! While I agree that this is one of my favorite boxes in terms of the items inside (haven’t tried the gift cards yet so can’t speak to those though…) I will say that I signed up as an annual subscriber in order to choose some items and have to say that sadly only 1/3 items was the color I selected. I’m actually pretty disappointed in this as I was online when the email came in and made my selections ASAP! I will be contacting customer service as in addition to not getting the items I selected but I definitely don’t feel like there was an “priority” shipping there. One thing I will note is that I missed them not having a snack in this box as they usually do!

  6. Overall, I really like this box however as usual the shipping rates make the giftcodes/cards virtually useless. In order to ship anything to me in Canada its $35.00! It seems to not matter what I select as an ornament is shipped for the same price as a blanket etc.

    • I was able to get a print shipped to me for $15 so I was ok with that. The Jeweler’s Wife, however, uses a third party shipping company that wanted $44 to ship a $40 bracelet! Yeah, that $15 gift card’s not getting used 🙁

  7. I did it! I sub’d to the FFF box because of your review (and discount code MSA10). OMG! You’ve created a BB monster in me (hahahaha….JK…you just helped to release it; it was always there hiding). Thanks!

  8. I received my FFF box yesterday, love everything but the chrger I received is for a universal phone port not an Iphone, I own an Iphone, my profile says this as well. The picture in the book shows Iphone, did anyone else have this problem? With all the customer service complaints, Im worried that I’m stuck with a charger I cant use. Crossing fingers they will exchange it or send an iphone charger.

    • Hi Wendy ! The charger is for an iPhone too .. You use the plug they gave you to charge the portable charger and then you use the cord you would use to charge your iPhone to connect to the portable charger. Hope this helps!

    • Yeah, they didn’t send phone specific chargers. The cord that came with your charger is to CHARGE the charger itself, otherwise how would it work right? You have to use your own iPhone cable in order for it to work. They only reason it works for Android’s is because they just so happen to use the same charger type. Nbd.

    • Also, their customer service is great. Every time I’ve had a problem with an item or a problem with my box, they were extremely quick about fixing the problem and replacing the items.

    • Thank you everyone, using the iphone cord works!!! Wish the shorter cord provided was for an iphone, but at least I can use the charger now!!! MSA has a great community, thank you everyone!!!
