FabFitFun Fall 2016 Subscription Box Review + $10 Coupon
The FabFitFun Box is a quarterly subscription from FabFitFun.com. Each season they send you a box of $100+ worth items in categories like beauty, fashion, and fitness. And good news – if you are interested in this box – it is still available for purchase!
Each season, FabFitFun features a different design for their box. I love that this one is interactive!
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: FabFitFun Box
The Cost: $49.99 a box sent every quarter
The Products: The hottest seasonal items (worth at least $100) selected by the FabFitFun team
Ships to: US and Canada
This box comes with an Exclusive Offers card – each brand included in the box shared a coupon to save on other purchases:
FabFitFun sends out a mini mag in each box. It details the items included and also provides background on some of the featured makers and designers.
For the Fall box, 6 of the items are from companies founded by women! I love this! I also formerly worked at ModCloth, so I was extra excited to see ModCloth founder Susan Koger in this mini mag!
Now, time for the items!
ModCloth Loch and Key Blanket Scarf – Value $34.99
FabFitFun Select Members (annual subscribers) were able to select which of 4 variations they wanted to receive. I really liked all the colors, but this blue and green combination was calling my name!
The scarf measures 55 by 55 inches, is made from 100% acrylic, and is very soft – not itchy at all.
This scarf is BIG!
The “blanket” description of this scarf is very accurate! The material is lightweight, though, so it keeps this scarf from being too bulky.
There are tons of ways to style this, and for the first look I went with my tried and true method I apply to any large scarf – turn it into a circle scarf:
I love the circle scarf style because I never have to worry about the scarf unwrapping throughout the day – it will always stay perfectly in place! To do this look, just tie two opposite ends of the square together, then circle it around your neck twice like this:
Shrugging at the end is completely optional! 😉 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
FabFitFun sent me some of the other scarf options to try as well (subscribers will receive one scarf in their box).
Here is the multi-color plaid scarf styled with the simple over-the-shoulder approach:
And the black and white scarf as a wrap:
I think this scarf is a really versatile piece, super cozy, and the patterns are classic, too! (Plus this comes folded in the ModCloth wrapper, so it’s also ready to gift if you prefer!)
The Created Co. To-Go Coffee Mug – Value $19
This plastic mug holds 16 oz . Subscribers will receive this version or the “Joy Comes In The Morning” mug. (Select members were able to pick which mug they wanted).
I love the gloss black with gold text detail. The only downside for me with this mug is that it is handwash only!
Pure Cosmetics Nude Collection – Value $50
This palette is free of parabens, sulfates, fragrance, and triclosans. Plus it is cruelty-free!
The case was a little tough to open at first – but now I have the hang of it!
This palette is a mix of matte and shimmer shadows. (Very similar to this one.)
The colors are gorgeous, the blending brush works well, too:
Most importantly, I’m happy to report that the pigment is great!
Here are all the shades swatched:
And again, this is one of those items that would make a fantastic gift if you don’t want to keep it for yourself!
I love these Spongelle sponges! They are infused with body wash, and the sponge is firmer than your typical bath pouf, so you get exfoliation added in, as well!
This scent is described as a blend of sweet mandarin, rose and soft musk. I’m not always a fan of rose scents, but I like this one!
Mullein & Sparrow French Lavender Body Oil – Value $18
I LOVE this brand! This body oil is light, smells lovely, and it’s made with organic ingredients, too.
Plus the packaging design is elegant – always a bonus in my book!
Skin Laundry Restoring Night Serum – Value $50
This serum is designed to “help improve the overall appearance of skin brightness, smoothness, tone, texture and elasticity.”
This is a gel formula that absorbs almost instantly and has no detectable scent. It left my skin feeling moisturized, too.
The BrowGal Brow Gel – Value $20
I’ve sampled this before and it works well! My brows stayed in place the entire day, and the formula is paraben-free – I’m happy!
Toesox Toeless Fitness Socks – Value $17
These socks are great for any fitness activity that works with bare feet – yoga, pilates, dance, barre, etc.
My first thought when I saw these was that there is no way having individual spaces for toes would be comfortable – but I was wrong!
The design lets you spread your feet out more, and I got over the toe separator weird feeling pretty quickly!
Here they are on to better show the socks:
And the sole of the sock is coated in grippy dots so these are super non-slip!
FabFitFun Coloring Book + Pencils – Value $16
FabFitFun Select subscribers could pick between “Things” or “Nature” for their coloring book.
No surprise, the illustrations in this book are really cute!
If you haven’t tried coloring in a while, it’s great for reducing anxiety (and just taking a break from screens!)
This coloring book also came with a set of colored pencils:
FabFitFun has partnered with Pencils of Promise for this collaboration. You can learn more about Pencils of Promise here.
And we have two bonus sponsored items in the box!
Cottonelle Fresh Care Wipes – (42 Count)
This is officially the best design I’ve ever seen for wipes! Good job FabFitFun and Cottonelle!
This kit also includes a pull-out card with two Cottonelle coupons.
These are faintly scented, and they are flushable, too. I recommend storing a pack in your glove compartment. (Great for cleaning up the car or your hands after pumping gas).
Secret is usually my deodorant of choice, but I’ve stuck to the powder version for years. (The last time I tried a gel it seemed to take forever to dry.) The gel formula has definitely changed since I last tried though – this one dried instantly!
Verdict: This box has a value of $241! (And that’s not even counting the bonus sponsored items!) This is one of those boxes that always has me asking “How do they do it?” This value is incredible, and I think the product and brand selection is great, too. I love and will use everything – and I’m not longer a toe-sock skeptic!
