fabfitfun-winter-2015-booklet

FabFitFun switched from an info sheet to a mini mag with the fall box, and I love the change.

fabfitfun-winter-2015-pages

It’s full of tips for the season, background on some of the featured makers, and lots of other super important info:

😉 Now onto the items!

fabfitfun-winter-2015-gloves

Whitney Eve X FabFitFun fingerless gloves – Value $26

These are available in black or grey. (FabFitFun Annual Select subscribers were able to select the color they wanted).

fabfitfun-winter-2015-glove-on

These are cozy, great for texting, and I like the faux leather button detail.

fabfitfun-winter-2015-ejh

EJH Brand Diffuser in Pomegranate – Value $37

(Other scent variations: Cinnamon, Sugar Cookie or Lavender. This is another FabFitFun Annual Subscriber Select choice item).

Here is the diffuser out of the box:

fabfitfun-winter-2015-diffuser-items

That plastic cap sealing the fragrance oil is really in there, so it’s a bit of hassle to remove it, but I’m hoping that means no leaking packages in shipment!

Here it is all put together:

fabfitfun-winter-2015-diffuser

I like the simple design, and the pomegranate scent works for me. (Of course, now I really want to smell the Sugar Cookie scent!)

fabfitfun-winter-2015-juara

JUARA Candlenut Body Creme – Value $38

(Good to know for swaps – inner foil seal)

I think this is such a perfect beauty item for a winter box! I’ve sampled it before thanks to Birchbox, and it is such a decadent body cream! And considering how thick the cream is, I’m impressed with how quickly it absorbs. (This isn’t one of those body butters that leaves your skin feeling a little greasy).

fabfitfun-winter-2015-wine

Wine Stopper and Charm Set by FabFitFun – Value $15

This set is pretty cute. Here are all the pieces:

fabfitfun-winter-2015-wine-stopper

And here are the wine stopper and wine charm in action:

fabfitfun-winter-2015-wine-action

And I was happy to see that these silicone pieces are all BPA-free and dishwasher safe!

fabfitfun-winter-2015-zoya

Zoya Nail Polish in Vanessa -Value $9

Subscribers will receive one of four “berry-toned hues.”

I love the Zoya polish formula, and this looks like a perfect cranberry red for the holidays, so I’m happy!

fabfitfun-winter-2015-set

Dermalogica Skincare Set -Value $45

This set includes:

fabfitfun-winter-2015-dermalogica

Special Cleansing Gel, Skin Smoothing Cream, and Multi-Active Toner

(Good to know for swaps – Skin Smoothing Cream has inner foil seal).

These tie-in well with the back page of the mini-mag titled “5 Tips for Traveling Light.” I like that these are all free of artificial fragrances. I think my favorite is the Skin Smoothing Cream – it absorbs very quickly and is great for dry skin.

fabfitfun-winter-2015-frends

FRENDS The Donna Earbuds (Value $80)

Here are the variants for the earbuds:

This is another FabFitFun Annual Subscriber Select choice item.

Here are the earbuds up close:

fabfitfun-winter-2015-earbuds

I know the FRENDS brand makes pricey earbuds and headphones, so I wasn’t too surprised by the listed retail value on these. (For example, these Earbuds from 2014 were originally $100).

That being said, I would have loved if they came in their own box – I think it would have made them a more giftable item.

As far as quality goes, I was very impressed with the sound quality. (The button on the cord serves as a play/pause button). I even had my husband Eric try them since he’s much more obsessed with sound quality than I am and he was surprised by how good they sounded.

From Eric, “They produced a good bass and the sound wasn’t tinny like most earbuds I’ve used.”

fabfitfun-winter-2015-shoptiques

Shoptiques $25 Gift Card

Well, while I didn’t get a box for the earbuds, FabFitFun went above and beyond with this gift card box!

It is just ready to be gifted!

fabfitfun-winter-2015-gift-card

And extra good news: no credit card required to use this if your order is under $25. (And! There’s no mention of FabFitFun on the gift card itself – so if you wanted to gift it, it doesn’t look like it came from a subscription box).

fabfitfun-winter-2015-sweet-spark

Sweet and Spark $40 Gift Card

More good news – no need to enter credit card info if you order is less than $40! (And shipping is free). I found a few items for $38, and the gift card doesn’t expire, so hopefully if they don’t have something you are looking for now, you can find it when they add new stock!

fabfitfun-winter-2015-hello-fresh

Hello Fresh 3 Free Meals Coupon

This coupon is good through 6/30/2016. Check out our Hello Fresh reviews to learn more about this subscription.

fabfitfun-winter-2015-aspca

And FabFitFun teamed up with the ASPCA:

fabfitfun-winter-2015-instagram

Post a picture of your pet or favorite animal with the hashtags #FFFAnimallove #FabFitFun #ASPCA and tag @FabFitFun and @ASPCA and for every photo FabFitFun will donate $1 to the ASPCA (Up to $90,000).

Verdict: I have been so impressed with FabFitFun boxes lately! For one thing – I LOVE that the gift cards can be used as actual gift cards! (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 $315 – incredible for a $50 box, (and even more amazing for a $40 box if you sign up with the MSA10 coupon).

I’m also in holiday-gifting mode, so I like that so many of the items in this box would make great gifts, or this entire box would be an amazing gift.

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

  1. I know I am late to this thread, but I was so impressed with my first FFF box. My 19 year old immediately wanted the body cream and polish (right there almost the full box price). I gifted the gloves and the stopper and wine charms as Christmas gifts. I had no trouble using the Shoptiques card. I used the diffuser (sugar cookie for me) and will use the Dermalogica set as soon as I run out of the product I am currently using. I have yet to use the Sweet Spark card or earbuds, but I will. So pleased!

    • Yay! Sounds like a perfect box for you! 🙂

  2. Does anybody want the sweet and spark gift card or the hello fresh?? I could trade it for anything.

  3. The winter box was my first experience with a subscription box and I LOVE it! The only issue is the shoptiques gift card- I tried to use it the other day and it said ” invalid code”. I emailed them and haven’t heard back – was just wondering if anyone else has had this issue too?

  4. I’m trying to find out when the Massi throw came out in fff. But I can’t find anything on it. Does anyone know?

  5. Do you know what is in the FabFitFun Welcome box right now?

    • Hi Allison,

      The Welcome box includes $340.95 worth of some of our favorite past items. The box is similar to past seasonal boxes covering all the essentials, health, beauty, fitness, fashion, and lifestyle items. All items have been featured in past FabFitFun boxes, but the exact content is a surprise.

      The box will ship out within 10 business days of the purchase date! You can also contact us at [email protected] regarding any other questions. We look forward to assisting you soon!

  6. Can anyone get their Hello Fresh card to work for the 3 free meals? I select the 3 meals box for 2 people , and it is trying to charge me $34.95.

  7. Has anyone actually received their Shoptique order???? Mine has been in transit since 12/26.

    And no…I can’t smell my diffuser at all.

    • I received my shoptique order. I ordered it just before the new year and it came the other day.

      Also, I have the lavender diffuser and it smells wonderful! I did have to flip the sticks over a few times to get it that way.

    • I got my shoptique item – which I love and which is way nicer than what I was expecting – in like 3 days…..

      • Oh and ditto re NO smell to the diffuser…

    • I cannot smell my diffuser at all either. ?

  8. Just got my box yesterday 🙂 You can’t beat $4/item that I either love or will at least definitely use ? Even my husband loves this subscription (he kept the head phones lol) !!!

    • Yay – glad your husband likes the box too! 🙂 FabFitFun is such a good deal!

  9. I was just wondering, is anybody else noticing that you can hardly smell the diffuser scent, or is it just mine? I got lavender.

    • I received sugar cookie & feel the same way..

    • I got cinnamon and I can smell it. . . when I’m standing next to it.

  10. Is anyone else getting charged 34.50 when using their hello fresh card for the first time?

  11. I have a $15 coupon code to Jewelers Wife from the previous box if anyone wants it gratis. Expires tomorrow 12/31. Email me at Bruinkitty at Yahoo 🙂

  12. Beware of Shoptique. Did not complete the research as I should have before purchase and found the item elsewhere on line for just under $24. Though I paid just under $60.! Called the immediately ( within half an hour of purchase) to cancel and explained why. I received a generic response apologizing that it could not be cancelled if already shipped that they would have to check on that and have not heard back. I was also told that it could always be returned if there was a size issue. Horrible customer service, no offer to price match. Shady!

    • Does anyone not want their Sweet and Spark card? I will use it.

  13. I know I’m probably a little too late for this, but wanted to see if anyone wanted to swap sugar cookie diffuser for lavender or pomegranate?

  14. Has anyone who got the gift with purchase earrings received them yet or even gotten tracking?
