(There are a lot of pictures in this review because there are SO many items! And I’m going to show you all variants at the end of the review, too!)

FabFitFun Winter Box BB Dakota Poncho

BB Dakota Poncho in Black – Retail Value $70

FabFitFun Winter Box BB Dakota Poncho Label

This item is available in 3 different colors. If you are a FabFitFun select member (annual subscriber) you will be able to select the color of your choice starting November 7th!

This poncho is open in the front and drapes beautifully.

Here are the care instructions: Machine wash cold, no tumble dry, ironing OK on delicate setting, dry cleaning OK.

(The fabric is 65% acrylic, 35% polyester.)

It features a blanket stitch edge and just like a blanket, it’s super soft and cozy! (Perfect to keep at a chilly office!)

And, it is reversible!

Here’s a better idea of the size of the poncho:

(And you can see the little tag you might want to remove on the reverse side.)

8 Other Reasons 9 Lives Choker in Rose Gold – Retail Value $58

This item is available in Rose Gold or Silver. If you are a FabFitFun select member (annual subscriber) you will be able to select the color of your choice starting November 7th!

I love delicate jewelry, and I actually had been eyeing a similar style necklace at Bauble Bar, so this is perfect! And my favorite feature of this necklace? It has a 4-inch extender, so you can wear it as a necklace or a choker.

Here it is at the longest length:

And here it is at the shortest length:

I think this is my favorite piece of FabFitFun jewelry ever!

Doucce Cosmetics Freematic Face Palette in Nude – Value $70

This item is available in Nude or Smokey. If you are a FabFitFun select member (annual subscriber) you will be able to select the color of your choice starting November 7th!

These palettes are magnetic so you can swap out any of the pans:

This palette includes 5 shimmer eyeshadows, 3 mattes, and a highlighter. Here they are swatched:

The pigment is good throughout on both these eyeshadows, they were easy to blend, and I had minimal fallout.

Homemade by Ayesha Curry Ceramic Mug – Value $16

All subscribers will receive one of three designs. Designs will be randomly selected. (I’ll show you all the options at the end of the review!)

This cute mug is 15 oz and microwave and dishwasher safe! And “I’d rather be in bed,” really speaks to me! 🙂

(Did you know Ayesha Curry has her own meal subscription box? She does it all!)

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate – 1.7 oz Value $75

(Good to know for swapping – this item has an inner foil seal.)

All subscribers will receive this item.

I’ve sampled this a few times before thanks to subscription boxes, and I love it.

First, it’s a super quick-use beauty product. You only need to use it for 30 seconds (and you can leave it on for up to two minutes) and apply it twice a week. And it’s paraben, sulfate, and phthalate free!

The exfoliant particles are super fine, so it’s gentle on my skin, and I love the cinnamon scent, too. And the best part? It left my skin feeling super soft and smooth.

Pointe Studio Aloe Infused Cozy Socks – Retail Value $19

All subscribers will receive one of three colors. Colors will be randomly selected. (I’ll show you all the options at the end of the review!)

Cozy, fuzzy socks! What a perfect Winter box item! I’m already picturing myself curled up with a book, these socks, and tea in my new mug!

(FabFitFun recommends washing them on the cold setting and tumble dry low to ensure the aloe infused part lasts 25-30 washes.)

Ahava Mineral Hand Cream – Retail Value $33

(Good to know for swapping – this item has an inner foil seal.)

All subscribers will receive this item.

Another perfect winter box item! AND! FabFitFun sent us the extra-large version! And it’s another great beauty product!

The formula is super hydrating, but it somehow still absorbs almost immediately – no greasiness!

Grace & Stella Anti-Wrinkle Energizing Eye Masks – (Set of 8) Value $16

This is the Beauty Choice item. All subscribers will have the opportunity to pick between these eye masks or Nelson J. Beverly Hills Moisture Healing Hair Mask in Coconut (Value $23).

These eye masks stay on easily and they are unscented – two things that I always look for in an eye mask! The formula is made of collagen and minerals and is designed to help fight fine lines, puffiness, and under eye circles.

FabFitFun TV Fitness Ball with Jillian Michales Videos – Value $16

This is the Wellness Choice item. All subscribers will have the opportunity to pick this Fitness Ball or This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray (Value $29).

This exercise ball is paired with exclusive workouts from Jillian Michaels that you can access through FabFitFun TV. (If you are a FabFitFun subscriber, you have access!)

The ball comes with everything you need to inflate + deflate it, so it’s easy to bring in your suitcase when you’re traveling:

Here it is in hand to give you a better sense of scale:

Verdict: This box has a retail value of $373! (And this box is the lowest value variation you could receive!) Amazing! This is my favorite FabFitFun box of all time! (Fall 2016 previously held that title.) I can’t believe how many awesome items are in this box. It’feels like a perfect cozy/luxe box for Winter, too.

This sleep spray has a lavender + chamomile scent blend. (No surprise, it is very relaxing!)

This has a beachy, coconut scent, and you can use it in different ways:

  • Leave it in for 5 minutes and set with a blow dryer
  • Or apply post shampoo and let sit for a minute before rinsing
  • Apply throughout hair before swimming to protect against chlorine + salt water damage.

I went with the quicker 1-minute option, and it left my hair feeling just a bit softer!

  1. Good morning 🙂

    I have a question, in the Fabfitfun website, under my box, the items that say (styles may vary) you will receive the ones on the pic or it can be the others?
    I’m just getting so excited, the pic shows exactly the mug and socks I want hahaha

    Thank you!!

    • I’d be interested in knowing too. For instance, the poncho pictured is black. The mug pictured is Blue “I’d rather be in bed” but says styles vary… so do I get the colors pictured?

  2. If I sign up now will I be able to pick the options I want?

    • @megan, I don’t think so.

  3. I just received my box this weekend and WOW!!! The free add-ons are AMAZING! It was surely worth being an annual subscriber just for the early access to those bonus extras! I LOVE the candle including in the Singapore sampler. I have no idea how they managed to include so much for FREE! Okay, I will stop with the all caps now. I love the poncho so much more in person, than I did when it was initially spoiled. It shed all over my office chair but I have a small herd at home so shedding is no issue for me haha!
    Please though, if anyone wants to trade or sell their “Coming in Hot” mug, I’d love to talk to you! I received the “Love You A Latte” one.

    • Did you get a DL & Co candle? What’s the Singapore sampler? I’m wondering if we all got different bonuses. I got a beanie and briogeo!

  4. Does anyone know why the ExfoliKate has a box which says ” Exclusive to Fab Fit Fun”???

    Did they change something?

    TIA!

    Mandy G.

    • I think it’s the size. I think FFF is the only company that gets the 1.7oz
      That’s my best guess

  5. Hi Liz! If it’s not too much trouble, do you mind including a Value Breakdown of FFF boxes in future posts? I could be wrong but I noticed that previous posts didn’t have this. Thanks!

  6. Based on this review I ordered a second box! I just wanted to let you know that I found the value breakdown on cost extremely helpful and hope you continue to do that.

    • Whoops, I scrolled past the comments and went straight to the post a reply section lol. But at least Liz will know there’s at least two people who want this! 😛

    • Thank you, Lesley! Glad to hear it is helpful! I’ll keep it up! 🙂

  7. Thanks for the early review!!! Have been considering FabFitFun and this review made me finally say, yup- I have to go for it.

  8. I’m crossing my fingers for the ‘I’d rather be in bed’ mug. So cute!!

  9. Liz, would you say that ‘Mulberry’ is a rust color? I can’t tell from the picture.

  10. This box is amazing! I am ordering this box for sure … just haven’t decided whether to do annual or seasonal subscription! I really don’t want the mulberry poncho lol!! Is there a FB page or something where people swap items? I also REAAALY want the mint colored mug because it would be a great Christmas gift for my daughter.

    • There is a swap site right on this site. Go to the menu and click on Swap.

  11. So I’m new and subscribed tonight b/c of a review I saw. Now I’m wondering if I made a mistake. I ordered it for the poncho, necklace and the mug. I see several things that say “Everyone will get one”, or everyone will get one in either x or y color. But I don’t see that on the three things I really really want. So does anyone know?
    Poncho,necklace, mug, socks…
    I saw makeup, mask (hair or eyes), fitness ball/pillow spray, exfoliate… are in all boxes.
    Can anyone clear this up? I really really want this box!

    • Hi, so you WILL get one of each of those items you said you most wanted!
      Each color however will be randomly selected so just make sure you are OK with that 😉
      As for the fitness ball vs sleep spray and the mask vs eyes thing you CAN pick those out as well! They are called the “choice” items and you just go to FabFitFun – My Box -Customize, then you can pick them!
      If you became “select” (pre pay for a year) then you can pick the colors of the shadow, poncho, and necklace otherwise they are random 😉

      Hope that helps/clears things up for ya! ;D

  12. hmm, I don’t like the poncho , but I like that I can wear it as a huge scarf instead.

    the necklace – meh. Too dainty – I like bolder pieces and I don’t care for costume jewelry either, so I will put that up for swap. It is a decent box, I liked fall’s better but this time around, I added in a ton of add-on’s, so it will be nicer due to that.

  13. I decided I would give the Doucce palette to my younger cousin for Christmas who is a makeup newbie. She doesn’t really wear makeup day to day — mostly for special occasions/holidays, dates, and going out with friends. It seems like the Nude palette has a lot of similar/duplicate shades (more for daytime) and the Smokey has a wider range of looks available (daytime and nighttime). Which do you think would be a better fit? I can’t decide!

    Would the nude make eyeshadow seem more wearable during the day? Would the Smokey fit more of her current needs?

    • I would base the choice on what better suits her colouring. Either palette can be used as a natural & dramatic, depending on her skin tone.

  14. As a petite person, I’m finding that the wraps and scarves are way too big, which is too bad. I basically wrap myself up in the “scarf” from the fall box, and even my husband incredulously said “That’s a scarf?! Who wears scarves that big?” The poncho will be kept on my office chair probably lol

  15. There’s a typo on the back of the Nelson J!

    • Treamtnet. Good catch!

      • 😄

  16. If anyone gets the “Coming in hot” mug and/or the silver choker and wants to swap, please let me know!

    • Coming in Hot is the only mug that I *don’t* want so keep in touch! 🙂

      Love the blue/green one and like the pink one too!

      • I want the teal one and don’t like the other two mugs so I’d exchange too!

        • I really, really want the pink one! I am getting in on this thread in the event we can all make each other happy!

          • Hi Melody! I received the pink one – any chance you received the coming in hot one?

      • Hi there! I have the love you latte mug – any chance you received the coming in hot mug?

    • I want the one that Liz got so I would definitely trade with you if it works out that way.

    • Sorry, I should clarify…I am not getting the winter box, so won’t have a different style/color mug to swap. However, I would like to swap for it if anyone sees anything I have listed that they’d like! I’ll keep checking back here.

  17. Weird question, but… @Liz, what lipstick are you wearing in the photos modeling the poncho? So pretty!

    • Oh, thank you! It’s one of my favorite Birchbox discoveries 🙂 It’s Stila Liquid Lip in Patina. Hope that helps!

      • Thank you so much! That is too funny because I thought “that looks like a shade I would wear”, and I do. Also one of my fave birchbox finds! haha.

  18. I finally caved and subscribed to this box. That poncho along makes it worth it. It will be perfect to keep in my freezing cold office this winter!

  19. Love this season’s box! Not a huge fan of the poncho but it looks cute as a scarf.

    I wish they would let you select the mug design too. Depending on what everyone gets, would anyone want to swap for the “coming in hot” mug?

    • 🙋

      I want the turquoise in bed one!

    • I want the pink one!!! I hope we can all be happy or get happy with swapping!

  20. Did anyone else notice we couldn’t pick the color socks or type of mug we wanted?

    • The last few boxes they’ve had a few items that were randomly selected for everyone. In the spring box it was the color of the zip up pouch and in the fall box it was the color of the beanie or belt I believe. Not sure how much I like it 🤷🏽‍♀️

      • Would really prefer to choose my mug!

        But wouldn’t give my limited 2 choices though 😕

  21. Dear Beauty Gods,

    Haven’t been in this spot in a while, but I need your help. You’re my only hope.

    I know I said I’d never buy anything from FFF again because their CS bites, but I’m weak & a sucker for a hip styled poncho! Please guide my packers to a black or grey poncho. Absolutely NO RED.

    Please also inspire them to send the turquoise coffee cup ( because it’s 10000% true!) The others will be donated immediately.

    Not concerned about the socks, I dig all the colours & will only use them while at home anyway.

    Don’t care about the palette, it’s already listed. Just send the colour combo that will allow me to swap faster.

    As for the choker, I’d prefer silver, but can live with rose gold. (But seriously, send silver!)

    Thank you for at least allowing me a choice that includes a fitness ball over another ridiculous lavender spray. I can’t even unload the ones I already don’t want.

    Well, that’s it for now. Thanks for listening.

    Amen,
    vanessa

    • Vanessa- It’s like you were inside my head and said everything I wanted to you except for the fitness ball part. I didn’t want either to be honest, but I chose the sleep spray because I could gift it very easily. I feel the same way about the choker as I do the pallets- just send me one that I could swap easy!

      • LOL

        I wound up switching to the sleep spray for a swap, which she then cancelled!

        Oy.

    • i love that sleep spray. It’s the main reason I bought the box! I use it all the time. So….you can throw yours my way if you want!

  22. If anybody wants another exfolikate, I won’t be using mine…I’ve never swapped before but I just listed it. And a couple of items from last month’s beautyfix (dr. brandt and Paula’s Choice). Would like to get my hands on a second poncho (Mulberry!) or even the black beanie from Fall’s box.

    • Kay- I’m so your girl!! I already have the black beanie listed. I haven’t received my Winter FFF box yet and I’m not a select member, so I don’t know what color poncho I’m receiving. Maybe we can keep in touch until then? I will put my swap link here. ( I think I’m allowed to do that??)

      https://swap.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/user/32062/profile

  23. Just got my choices done. You can add the ball/pillow spray for $10 and the hair mask/eye things for $10. I did not get the option to add an additional poncho, necklace, or doucce pallet.

  24. I was not expecting to see the entire box this morning. I always tell myself I will just wait and be surprised- but i have not been able to hold off taking a peak at what the current seasonal box will offer. I cannot say I have ever been disappointed. I have had the opportunity to try a lot of new beauty products, love getting all the throws, ponchos, scarfs, whatever you want to call the cloth items. There are some things I have not used or know I will not use- and those items make amazing gifts! I sent my mom a FFF box for her birthday this year- because she was always commenting on the fun items I was getting. She is now a subscriber. This box is ageless- everyone can enjoy it! I am looking forward to BB Dakota wrap to bring into my office for the colder months- but what color? And I plan on getting the pillow spray- I need all the help I can get when it comes to having a calm sleep!

  25. @Liz Any chance that free bundle with a sub could be reinstated?

  26. This is a such a silly nit-pick that I’m kicking myself for even bringing it up but… While I was looking into the Grace & Stella eye masks on their website (via the link posted in this article) I noticed that they sell a 12-pair pack for $19.95, which comes out to $1.66 per pair. Multiply that by the 8-pair pack provided in the FFF box, and the retail value would come out to $13.30. I’m not upset or anything over the couple dollar difference, just wondering why they would list a retail value of $16? Does the version in the FFF box have additional benefits/ingredients/etc.?

    I’m definitely debating on whether to choose the eye masks or the hair treatment, so to my fellow Select FFF’ers–with this in mind should I just go for the hair treatment and buy the eye masks through Grace & Stella? Especially with the additional promo code they provide for newsletter sign up, I just see it as a better deal per unit… I blame my ever-vigilant saver brain for wasting my time on this. LOL. Any thoughts???

    • I noticed the same thing about the eye masks. I am not upset about it but it is slightly annoying.
      I have tried a product from the hair mask brand before and I didn’t like it at all. That doesn’t mean everything would be bad but I am going to steer clear. Plus, I can’t get enough eye masks.
      I know this reply is way too late to be helpful but I had to weigh in anyway. What did you pick?

    • Imo if you’re going to buy eye mask on your own I’d go with Talika Eye Therapy their reusable. I received them first from Allure travel box and I’ve used them several times.

      I also ordered the eye patches with my box and wondered why the price listed didn’t match the per unit price from website.

  27. I love everything I see here, except the poncho, sorry. I wish there was another option for this item. However, I just can’t wait to get this box!!!!

  28. Great review, thank you! I love the poncho as a scarf and it’s not something I ever would have thought of trying! I am so excited for my box now 🙂 I’ve been really impressed with FFF over the last few seasons. They seem to be listening and responding to the feedback they’re getting from their customers and I love that!

  29. I love this box! I almost wish I didn’t bc I was going to cancel my annual before the spring, but now I am so torn. I like having some control over choices. Now I just have to make those choices!!
    The review was so helpful – the more pictures the better!

  30. Anyone know if the pillow spray is safe for pets?

    • It’s fine for my dog, he sleeps on my bed at night and I’ve been using it for a while on my pillow case. It did give me some crazy dreams the first few nights!!!

      • Wow so interesting! Good to know, I really want to try this product but my cat usually cuddles on my pillow so I want to be sure it’s ok for him 🙂

        • Hey, lavender essential oil is toxic to cats and i think the spray has lavender in it. While it’s likely too diluted on your pillow to be harmful (unless he/she licks it), your cat probably will avoid it due to the smell.

        • Lavender essential oil is toxic to cats. Even if it is diluted. Repeat exposure over time through contact or inhalation can cause liver damage to kitties. (My partner is a vet). I think to be on the safe side, you should avoid using the spray on your pillow, or even in a room where your cat hangs out. Maybe get to use at work? A few sprays around your desk to help de-stress on hectic days?

          • Oh my gosh, thank you both so much for replying and letting me know about this. I better stay away from this spray!

  31. Liz, will the cup and socks be coordinating in each box? I love the way the colors also (kind of) match our blush, gray and sea green fall scarves!! I have the gray and blush ones so the pink or black socks with mug would be a cute set to gift, or just the pink set to gift as a valentines present, but I really really like the teal mug and socks most 🙁 I guess its good we cant pick because I wouldnt be able to decide…I sure hope they match though !

    • I didn’t notice that but now that you mention it, I can see it! It’s funny too because I am really wishing for the pink/red in the socks and the mug!

  32. I’m confused on why so many people are mad about the choker and worried it won’t fit. I myself am a size 16, and consider myself to have a really chubby neck, and I can’t recall ever having an issue with any choker I’ve tried not fitting…. though for a couple I own I do wear them on the loosest setting, but that’s more for comfort.

    This one has a 4 inch extender, so I feel like it would fit almost anyone?? It’s pretty long on Liz, and though obviously it wouldn’t fit the same as on her, it still looks like a long extender, more than most chokers for sure. I could see that it may fit like a choker on the “longer necklace” setting for those who are plus sized, but I honestly can’t see it being unable to fit around a neck at all.

    I could be wrong tho, obviously, since it’s just based on the picture and my personal experience. I just see a lot of people with complaints about it, much more than I’d assume would actually have issues with it…. But you know what they say when you assume, I guess.

    • I’m a size 18 and I love the necklace. I haven’t even needed an extender. But they are super cheap on eBay

  33. Liz – some of your photos are not showing up. I have tried to see them all day.

    It looks like a pretty good box from what I can see.

    • Oh no – sorry about that! Can you let me know what browser you are using and if you are on mobile or a laptop? We’ll try to figure out what’s going wrong. Thanks!

      • I am on a desktop computer using Google Chrome. I can’t comment using the ap for some reason.

        Anyway they still are not showing up.

        Thanks!

        • We just cleared the cache, hopefully, that fixes it. Let me know!

  34. Wow I love this box!! I wasn’t the biggest fan of the first spoilers, I think they are just ok, but I LOVE everything else.

    That necklace is exactly my style and I love that it can be worn as a choker or regular necklace!! Also those mugs are so cute! I love all of them. I love socks and those look awesome, cute and aloe infused. I don’t use hand cream much at all, so that’s not the most exciting, but I got a sample size of that earlier this year and I loved it. I also use it on dry elbows, I’m sure I’ll get much more use out of it in winter!! Also I’ve been wanting to try that sleep spray (I was gonna pick the ball, or get both if an option, until I realized it was a hand sized one and not one you sit on) and I love eye masks! They look great.

    So much more impressed than I thought I’d be based on the first spoilers!

    Still not sure which poncho color or eyeshadow pallet I wanna pick, keep going back and forth.

  35. Am I the only one thrown off by seeing the review before we got to pick/know our selections???? Lol. It’s cool though cause I have a better idea of what I want to pick.

    • Yes, I was wait I missed choice option start day? Then I realized no…it really is a super early review! SO weird, I almost didn’t look but as you said it helps in knowing ahead what to pick for the choice items! (especially since last time they sold out of multi option selections very fast! Though I don’t even have the budget to try that this time lol!)

  36. This is a really great box!! I think the only two duds for me are the mug and the palette – these are both nice items just not right for me. Everything else will be happily used or gifted. The hand cream and sleep spray make me especially happy. And the necklace may be the first sub box jewelry item that I’m actually looking forward to wearing! And only 1 item with a saying on it. Yay!

  37. I’m not okay with Jillian Michaels’ past abusive behavior, or her continued fat-shaming behaviors.

    I’m extremely disappointed that Fabfitfun would choose to partner with her.

    • Agree!! I was excited about the workout item but definitely not about Jillian Michaels! I thought she had gone away.

    • I can’t stand her. She is a horrible trainer. Too loud and in your face.

  38. Wow – this is a lot nicer than the last box! I canceled my annual but it’s tempting… I have to keep reminding myself that for the few items I want I’m also getting more stuff I don’t need (I have too many mugs and while the exfolikate is a good product is isn’t for me – I wish boxes would give the sensitive skin version). If I could pick the pallet without having to get another annual I might go for it but I’m going to try to stay strong.

    Their sales must be down for them to release all the spoilers this early!

  39. The only dud for me on this box is the poncho. I suspect it will be a difficult item to get rid of via swap, so I may have to gift It or place it in the donation pile. Sooo excited for the pillow spray, and I’ll be happy with any variation of necklace, mug, of socks I receive. Fingers crossed that I get the first palette 😬 overall another great FFF box!

    • If I wasn’t already subbed I would be swapping for it…as it is I probably will swap for another color if I can. So don’t give up on it’s swap value just cause it’s not your style…that’s why their’s the swap site! (plus if you swap it less than it’s high rv people would go nuts for it haha)

    • I’m subscribed but I’m planning on swapping to get all the different color ways of the poncho. I have a feeling it’s going to be more popular than you might think.

    • I read unswappable dud and assumed it was about the doucche palette then jaw dropped when I read you were talking about the poncho. With the holidays coming up I foresee it being pretty popular since it’s one size fits all and can be great for outside or just cuddling up at home or having it in the office. I’m not a giant fan of them but even I know I’ll get some definite use out of it.

  40. If I get another winter box as an add on, can I select my choice on that as well? Anyone know?

    • I asked on fff chat today and they said the add on box is completely random, no choices

      • Aw, too bad… but thanks for replying!

  41. Liking what I’m seeing. Most of all , I am grateful that the American Heart Association is being recognised !

  42. So I like this box more than the fall one, but it’s not my favorite box of all. I like at least half of this box, but even if I didn’t, the exfolikate is $75 and makes this box worth it to me. I just wish they would have done a Massi throw (I’ve been dying to get my hands on one) instead of the poncho and a bigger brand name eyeshadow palette like Boxycharm did with the Tarte palette. If they would have changed a few things, I would have been jumping up and down for joy and that would have made it the best box in my opinion. None the less, I’m still excited about this box and the add-ons. I’m at like $300 and my husband’s gonna kill me lol. 😝

  43. Super love everything! I’m hoping for the same variations as Liz! Great review!

  44. Wonderful review, Liz! Probably the best I’ve ever seen on the site.

    • Wow, thank you! 🙂

  45. This is the best surprise for a Monday morning! I literally love everything in this box. All my subscription boxes are going strong for this winter. Bye bye my winter blue!

  46. This is a awesome box!!!! The poncho & necklace are amazing!

  47. To Liz or anyone else who has used a similar exercise ball, what type of exercises do you do with that size ball? I noticed its a lot smaller than a typical one you would sit on and do ab workouts

    • Pilates and barre exercises for your thighs are great with this ball. You can also put it against your lower back while on the floor doing crunches at an angle. The fitness video online will show you different exercises I’m sure.

  48. I’m hoping to get the red poncho and the teal/pink cup!!! If not I’m going to to swap the poncho!!

  49. So glad I cancelled. Yeah! So I saw the poncho and acted last week to stop my renewal. I don’t really need any of these items and today’s post is confirmation I made the right decision.

  50. Looks like another great box! I have my fingers crossed for the same mug that you received Liz!
