This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sunday Subscriber Survey time! I thought it would be fun to look back on a year of FabFitFun Boxes and ask, what was your favorite box this past year? And what was your favorite item?

Here is a refresh of every season:

FabFitFun Spring 2017

FabFitFun Summer 2017

FabFitFun Winter 2017 Unboxing

FabFitFun Winter 2017

What was your favorite box or boxes this past year? I’m going with the Winter Box! It checked all the boxes for me for a perfect seasonal box.

And what was your favorite item? (A tough pick, but I think the Cozy Wrap from the Fall box – it lives up to its name!)

If you haven’t signed up for FabFitFun yet, use coupon code MSA10 to save $10 off your first box. (This box is regularly $49.99 a quarter).

  1. Spring and winter were my favorite but I actually didn’t dislike not one 2017 box. FFF did an awesome job for my first year as a subscriber!

    • Winter! Love, love, ❤️ the poncho. The hand cream is one of my favorites. The only item that I didn’t use was the eye shadow palette. Everything else was right on!

  2. No competition: Winter. We’ve had two weeks of ridiculously cold weather so I’ve thoroughly enjoyed bundling up in my ponchigan with a big mug of English breakfast tea and fuzzy aloe socks. The Exfolikate helps keep my nearly frost bitten skin bright and pretty. The pillow spray will forever be a part of my nighttime routine and the eye gels are magic for rough mornings. The only thing I haven’t used is the necklace. I actually tried ordering a second box after seeing how much I loved everything but I got sidetracked and when I went back to finalize it had changed to the editor’s box. This was my third season with FFF and each box has gotten better. I can’t wait for spring.

    • Oh and the hand cream. I remember buying Ahava when they were selling it at one of the stands in the mall. The face wash and magnetic mud mask were fantastic but when I went back to buy more the stand was gone. I had no idea they were still available so when I saw the brand in FFF I was stoked.

  3. Fall was my favorite and included my favorite item- the Cozy wrap. I wrap up in that almost every night, I love it that much. But the jewelry stand, gym bag, hot/cold pack, and hat are used regularly also.

    I am always so impressed by the quality and amount of items in the FFF boxes. It is the one that I can’t bear to cancel when I look to cut expenses. We have been getting it regularly for 3 years and I would cut cable before discontinuing that box 🙂

  4. I loved spring bc of the beauty items and great brands. Summer is the only one I passed on this year but I got most of the things I wanted in the editors box around that time. Love this box so much. Just a fun mix, girly and they always leave a few surprises for us even when we are stalkers for spoilers!

  5. Summer 2017 was definitely my favorite box. The thing I loved the most out of that box was the BKR bottle.

  6. Winter. I am wearing the socks right now, love the poncho, hand cream and pillow spray. Like the big mug and most of the other items.

  7. Winter!! But honestly, FFF knocked it out of the park throughout 2017 and I’m looking forward to seeing what they put together this year.

  8. My favorite was the spring box. I used everything! I loved winter too! Favorite item is the way of will body oil from the summer box.

  9. I love the summer box best. Of the variations I received items that were suited for me. I love all Kris Nations’ necklaces and got a lot of use out of the blue/white ruana. My favorite item from all the boxes is probably the A.J. crawler earrings. Now I actively seek out crawler earrings of all sorts.

  10. Spring and Winter not sure in which order…
    I used a lot of each of those boxes.

  11. Spring. It’s the only box that I’ve used any items.

    • Spring for me too. I used 7 out of the 9 items.

  12. I would have to say spring then winter then fall. Summer was the only one I didn’t use anything from. Have to say this is definitely one of my favorite subs

  13. Absolutely Winter! I loved almost every item!

  14. Very hard to pick just one! I was very happy with all my boxes this year, but I’ll have to go with summer then fall.

  15. I loved things from all boxes, but I would have to say Spring, because it was the box that made me pull the trigger and finally subscribe to FFF.

  16. I loved them all really, its honestly hard to pick my fav. Ultimately i would have to say the winter or fall is my fav.

  17. Winter then spring 🙌

  18. Winter hands down! I now own all 3 ponchos, all 3 colors of the socks, both colors of the choker and both palettes. I think that means so liked that box.

  19. While I have to say, I really like the winter box and use the poncho almost daily and wear the socks all the time, I love the fall box the best. I was able to try the vinegar rinse, which I had been wanting to for a while. I love the throw and wore the beanie yesterday! I used the duffle bag for a weekend fall beach trip.

  20. Definitely winter the box was amazing i wish every single one of their boxes were that good

  21. If I have to choose, I’d pick Spring (the only box where I actually kept the jewelry item), but I wasn’t thrilled by any of these, so I canceled.

  22. Winter! I use most of the items every day! My favorite items are the poncho and the eye masks! I can’t pick between those two though.

  23. Definitely Winter. I’ve been trying to get better at actually trying out new things (which I why I started getting sub boxes in the first place) and this one was awesome. While I’m not a fan of every single item, I am amazed at how much I love and use daily.

  24. Spring 2017 was my favorite box thus far

  25. Spring was my favorite followed by summer

  26. Winter all the way. Hoping for some good add-ons for the 2018 year, especially the return of Massi throws.

  27. Winter, have used all if the items

  28. Winter was my favorite too! I liked more in it than the others. I liked the summer box a lot too.

  29. Winter was my favorite, followed closely by Fall. And by “favorite” I mean “had the highest number of items that I immediately ripped into like an animal.”

    Liz and company: I love seeing yearly roundup posts like this, and hope you’ll consider doing them for even more boxes!

  30. Spring and winter tied as my favorites, although the others made me pretty happy, as well. My favorite product was the roundie! I have one in each bedroom, took one to Hawaii with me in May, used one as a table cloth on my patio all summer and fall.. But there are many other items I loved, the pancho, skin care….. I’m excited for 2018!!

  31. Winter! The hand cream and the poncho are in almost every day use for me, love the socks, the mug was a great gift for a gift exchange, and looking forward to using the exfoliKate when my current one runs out.

  32. Summer and Winter were my favorites. If I could only pick one, I’d probably go with winter, but it’s really too close to call.

  33. Winter was my favorite.

    • yeah winter was my favorite to

  34. Definitely the spring and Winter. Probably would choose Winter over the spring though. I liked all so far except for the Fall that was a bummer for me. Love the Add ons and sales too!

  35. I love the fall 2017 box. The winter 2017 was ok but didn’t need half of this stuff lol

  36. Winter, but spring came close.
    Favorite item is have to go with the winter box mug – I swapped for a second and we use them daily!

  37. Definitely winter, the ahava hand cream, kate Somerville, eye gels, and it works pillow spray sealed the deal for me. BUT I also loved the karuna face masks from spring and the juice beauty eye concentrate from summer. Nothing really wowed me in the fall.

  38. Favorite box was the winter box. Favorite item was the heating pad!

  39. I loved the FFF winter box. That box was just full of neverending items! My favorite item was the Kate Sommerville exfolikate but the box was just loaded with so many cool things!

  40. The winter box! Loved the wrap. I really liked the option of choosing some items!!

  41. The winter box was my favorite. The favorite beauty of all four boxes was the Whish mask and the overall item was the Ruana. It was more joy in this year’s boxes than 2016!

  42. Loved them all, but if pressed I’d day summer. Love the Juice Beauty eye cream.

  43. The winter box for me.

  44. I was surprisingly disappointed with FFF this year. The Spring box was my favorite, with summer right behind, but Fall was a complete wash for me, and winter was only saved by the exfoliKate. I think I was way more excited for the addons than the actual box items. I really want them to stop sending clothes that shed (that scarf, that poncho) and jewelry of questionable quality (didn’t love the nine lives choker.)

    Favorite items were the summer ruana, the exfoliKate, the Cargo highlighter (total surprise!), and the big Ahava hand lotion. (This winter is so cold that the big size is super-useful.)

    I really liked the option to add sponsored addons, too. The bulb was particularly useful in checking how different paint swatched would look with different types of light.

    Curation and value are still on point with this box, usually. I just wish some of the filler items were better quality (or didn’t leave little wooly tumbleweeds everywhere at least.)

  45. Honestly, I didn’t have one box that screamed “Favorite!”. I did use the most products out of the Spring box though :).

    • What she said ^

  46. Enter for me, I use the Ahava hand cream every day.

  47. Spring and Winter! I didn’t liked summer very much and I skipped fall because I didn’t liked. It was my first FFF I’ve ever skipped.

  48. For me, easily winter. I was giddy when I opened that one 😀

  49. Mine is the Avene sunscreen , from the spring box . It doesn’t make me breakout even using it on my face . I’ve swapped for so many lol I’m ready for summer again!

  50. Fall. It had the most items I use.
