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.

Every quarter, FabFitFun partners with a different charity, and for this box, the charity is Girl Rising.

Now, time for the items!

(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!)

Rachel Pally Reversible Clutch in Paradise – Retail Value $60

This item is available in 3 different colors. If you are a FabFitFun select member (annual subscriber) you were able to select your color choice. If you sign up for this box now, FabFitFun will pick the color for you.

This clutch measures 10.25″ across, 6.5″ tall when folded and 11.75″ tall when unfolded.

The teal side is made of vegan leather and the print is canvas.

It’s lined with polyester and is lead-free.

And there’s a pocket inside!

This clutch fits a phone, keys, hand sanitizer, and lip balm well without looking bulky.

And if you aren’t a fan of clutches, I think this would also work well as a makeup bag, or a bag with all your essentials in a larger beach bag, etc. I absolutely love the print and color of this bag, and plan on rocking it as a clutch!

 

Anderson Lilley Sunset Collection Candle in Fresh Linen – Retail Value $45

This item is available in three different scents. If you are a FabFitFun select member (annual subscriber) you were able to select your scent. If you sign up now, FabFitFun will select the fragrance for you.

My favorite part of this candle? The copper vessel! I love the modern lines – it’s already on display in my living room! (And when the candle is gone, it’s great to reuse as a pen/pencil holder, planter, etc.

The candle is 8 ounces, a soy wax blend, with a lead-free cotton wick. The fresh linen scent has notes of Mandarin Orange, Kaffir Lime, Clover, and White Tea. It’s fresh, clean, and slightly floral.

Free People Understated Leather Eyemask – Retail Value $40

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!)

This is a vegan leather sleep mask filled with a removable cooling insert. The opposite side is a soft fabric so it’s comfortable to wear:

And that strap is adjustable so you can get the perfect fit. Here is a closer look at the metallic stars:

And here is the removable cooling insert that you can pop in the fridge:

(Shown on the grey version.)

I like this mask as both an eye mask for sleeping and travel, and for a spa-at-home type of experience with the cooling insert. The mask is large, so it completely blocked out light for me, too. (Plus, the pastel colors with metallic stars are so cute!)

 

Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion – Retail Value $40

All subscribers will receive this item.

This is an oil-free moisturizer, designed to help refine the appearance of pores and help prevent blemishes. It’s paraben, phthalate, and sulfate free, too!

Normally when I try a skincare product, I can comment on if it is gentle on my skin, how quickly it absorbs, etc, but can’t say much about how it works beyond that. But in this case, it is different! I could actually feel that my skin felt softer and smoother immediately after applying it. (And it’s gentle on my skin and absorbed almost instantly, too!)

Physique 57 Massage Roller – Retail Value $20

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

This massage roller has foam flexible grips so it is easy to hold. I especially liked using this tool on my thighs. I have been using this cellulite massager on my legs every day, but this tool is definitely an upgrade. (I know this isn’t specifically designed for cellulite, but if I get benefits there while I’m working on muscles, that’s fine by me!)

Dermelect Makeover Concealing Ridge Filler – Retail Value $18

All subscribers will receive this item.

I know this is called “Makeover Concealing Ridge Filler,” but I think it deserves a more exciting name – this polish is awesome. It’s designed to help fix the appearance of nail ridges, yellow stains, and discoloration as a base coat. I say no other nail polish needed! I think this is perfect for anyone who wants a polished no-polish look.

It adds a glossy finish to your nails, and there’s this hint of a holographic shimmer. Here it is on:

This is my new go-to polish for nude look nails!

ISH Beauty Lip Statement Palette – Retail Value $42

All subscribers will receive this item.

The pigment is great throughout the palette, and the formulas are moisturizing and creamy.

I have to confess, I’m not one to usually change up my lip color, but I was happy to see that the far right, middle row color is very close to my regular lip color. But just different enough that I could tell myself I was trying new things!

Next step – trying out blending one or two of these colors together!

Here are all the shades swatched:

Next up, we have the Choice items. If you aren’t familiar, every season, FabFitFun allows subscribers to pick their choice between different items to customize their box!

Ettika Day Dreamer Tassel Earrings – Retail Value $58

This is the Jewelry Choice item. All subscribers had the opportunity to pick between these earrings or Maya Brenner Designs Love Bracelet ($65). If you sign up now, FabFitFun will select the jewelry item for you.

Here is Anna modeling these earrings for us:

These earrings are 18kt gold plated, with cotton thread, brass caps, alloy and surgical steel posts, and they are E-coated to prevent discoloration.

(I’ll model the bracelet for you at the end of the review.)

KNC Beauty Lip Masks – Set of 5 Value $25

This is the Beauty Choice item. All subscribers had the opportunity to pick between these lip masks or the KORRES Guava Body Cream ($24 Value). If you sign up now, FabFitFun will select the beauty item for you.

These collagen lip masks are all-natural and designed to help moisturize and plump your lips. (If you haven’t tried these before, imagine putting those undereye gel masks on your lips – it’s pretty similar.)

I found that these left my lips looking and feeling hydrated (and thus, a bit plumper), and the subtle tingly feeling I had while wearing it wasn’t irritating, but it was hard to keep the lip mask from sliding off. I’d recommend laying down while you are using these for the 20 minutes. (And maybe throw on the chilled eye mask, too!)

Dove Gentle Exfoliating Body Polish – 1 oz. Sponsored Bonus Item

I sampled this before thanks to Target Beauty Box and I am a fan!

It’s a creamy scrub made with crushed Macadamia nuts, so it’s very gentle on your skin, and the scent was fresh, too. If you like a light and gentle scrub that doesn’t leave your skin oily, I recommend it.

Verdict: This box has a retail value of $348! As always, I’m so impressed with how many items FabFitFun delivers for $49.99. And now that I have the whole box in front of me – not just the spoilers, I feel like this box has two themes: part treat-your-self spa day at home, part going-out and looking fab! I love the prints/designs on the clutch and eye mask, and there are so many great beauty items in this box, too. (The un-spoiled Murad + nail polish were two surprise major wins for me!)

To Wrap Up:

And here are the other Choice options:

Korres Guava Body Butter – 125 ml Value $24

(Subscribers could pick between this and the lip masks.)

This is an ingredient-conscious, rich, body butter that smells like all things tropical. It isn’t greasy at all, and I’m just obsessed with the scent. I highly recommend this if you like tropical, beachy scents.

Maya Brenner Designs LOVE Bracelet – Retail Value $65

(Subscribers could pick between this and the earrings.)

This bracelet is made of Stainless steel and rose-plated. (Rose gold version below.) It’s 6 inches long, with an additional 1-inch extender. And like the earrings, the bracelet is E-coated to prevent discoloration.

I love delicate jewelry, so this bracelet is perfect for me. Here it is on:

If you spend most of your day at your computer like I do, a lot of bracelets can get in the way when you’re typing. But this one is so dainty I forgot I was wearing it! (It’s on the 6-inch length on my wrist.)

And here it is in rose gold:

Ok, that’s it! Thanks if you stuck with me the whole way through! Let me know what you think of all the options!

  1. I loved my box! HATED the orange clutch I got, but that was my only issue! My candle didn’t ship, but they included a nice note saying they will ship it as soon as it comes in. They didn’t want to delay my box anymore. (Just in case some of y’all are wondering why your box hasn’t shipped yet.) I will use everything else in the box. (Even the lip kit that I will gift, haha!)

  2. Dying to know where I can find that blue maxi dress!
    (And thank you for a thorough review!)

    • It’s from Forever 21 but currently sold out – sorry!

  3. Not Sure If Anyone Else Noticed The Coupon In The Nail Lacquer???? But It’s 20% Of At Ulta When You Purchase Something From Dermelect… Just An FYI

  4. Looks kinda lame…

  5. I just got my box in the mail today. I got the orange clutch, which I think is really cute. I opted for the earrings and the lotion. The earrings are worth about $5 as far as quality of materials. There is absolutely no way these retail for $58. I think they’re cute, but c’mon. This is cheap metal and embroidery floss. I could get these at Charming Charlie/Claire’s/Icing. I like everything else in the box. My husband and I took turns massaging out knots in our arms and shoulders with the roller. I LOVE the sleep mask. I work nights and it is going to come in very handy. The murad, nail polish, and body butter will all get used. I don’t usually use lip palettes. I might gift it. I added on a Luv AJ ring. It looks adorable, but it’s adjustable, which just really cheapens it for me. I’m glad it only cost me $19.

    This wasn’t my most favorite of all time FFF box, but I’m still pleased with the value and the majority of the items I received.

  6. This box was everything for me. This was my last box in my annual subscription and it made me decide to renew — my favorite out of the past 3 other boxes because everything is practical. An oil-free moisturizer? Pleases most skin types and is non-comogenic. Yes. Eye mask with a cooling gel pack? Sign me up. A nail polish that nourishes and just adds a subtle shine? Effortless for spring. I thought I’d hate the bracelet (the fringe earrings were a big no for me), but it’s so dainty that it’s gorgeous. The lip masks were great and I even loved the little Dove scrub sample. Everything screamed renewal to me — a massager for tired muscles from cold winter weather. The clutch is the only item I’m parting with because I have too many, but it’ll make a lovely gift. The lip palette can either be played down or jazzed up. I really feel like this was well-rounded and I loved it so much more in person than online. I need another!

  7. I just received this box. It was my first box received. I am really disappointed. It came with a really weird, HUGE hat. It looks like a “Carl from The Walking Dead” hat. It’s a heavy felt material. Definitely not SPRING. I didn’t realize I could pick the look of some items and I am guessing, I received the items that were left over. The clutch is a weird tropical print. The earrings were peach tassels. I don’t know. Not sure if I will give this another try. I picked the “add on” hammer. It is VERY thin. It’s like they think that because you are a woman, you need a dainty hammer. Ah well, such is life.

    • That is so weird. Where did the hat and hammer come from… Those were not options. I don’t recall seeing a hammer in the add-on section. Did you contact them? You should have received an assortment of what’s in this review. You should receive an email when it’s time to customize your box and choose add-on’s (if you want them).

      • I don’t know if it is because I got two boxes. I ordered the Spring Box and the “Mystery Bundle” for spring. The hammer was an add on, but I didn’t realize it would be so small. The hat however, is HUGE and really heavy.

      • I think those were both mystery bundle items. The hammer and hat were both add-ons from prior boxes. I don’t recall seeing the hammer as an add-on this time around either. I think mystery bundle is most likely left over or over stalked items, unfortunately.

  8. Not my favorite FFF box ever, but I always love their boxes. For the money, you can’t beat it. Do I love everything? No. But I LOVED the bracelet. I gave it to my 16 year old granddaughter for her birthday, and she loved it. So delicate and pretty. I’ll use the Murad, and I got the body butter. The roller is nice. Those products alone are more than worth the cost of the box. So what if I don’t use the clutch, eye mask, lip product, or candle. I can always gift them. FFF is by far my favorite box. (Have you all wore your poncho as much as I have? Love it)

  9. Nightshift nurse that’d love to take the sleep mask off your hands if you don’t want it! :] My swaps profile isn’t working right now!

    • I’m a night shift RT and I was STOKED for that mask! The cooling gel pack is a wonderful touch.

  10. This was my first FFF box and it was so disappointing… lip palettes are so inconvenient and the earrings felt so incredibly cheap… The prices of everything in the box is so inflated that I feel like it was somewhat of a rip off to tell customers that you get appx $300 worth of product. $58 for cheap feeling cotton earrings. $45 for a tiny candle (lol are you kidding me). The skin care, the bag, and the massage roller were nice but they don’t make it worth $50 for me. I might resubscribe but only if I can see something in the spoilers first that might make it worth it.

  11. I fully admit that it’s my own fault and I should always read the fine print prior to doing anything online. I had cancelled my subscription last year (it was seasonal) because I was never wowed by the FFF box and aside from the occasional add-on product that I could choose I found myself never using the items. Well, I clicked reactivate for some strange reason last month (did I want to give it another chance?). Little did I know that as soon as you hit the reactivate button your credit card, which remains on file by the way, is automatically charged. I looked at the spoilers, looked at the add-on items, and decided this box wasn’t for me and cancelled again. So you can imagine my surprise when I got the email stating my box was on its way. A FFF rep confirmed the automatic charge process when I called to inquire. Again, my fault entirely and I should have known better….

    Needless to say, I received my box yesterday of products I would have never spent money on, with the exception of possibly the nail product. I know Murad and can definitely say they make very good skin care products. Unfortunately my skin is not the same skin as it was 12 years ago when I used this face lotion so while I will use it from time to time it will never become my daily face lotion.

    How in the world does FFF assign monetary value to their products? There is absolutely no way the earrings (embroidery floss and plastic, broken on arrival) – are $58 (made in China as well, not locally as I would have hoped). I’ve contacted customer service about getting a replacement because I might be able to give them to my 13 year old niece as these are more age appropriate for her, to me they are more like $6.99 at the drugstore.

    Anyway, I think for a younger individual it’s a good box. I’m just more irritated by the fact that I missed the bright red alert box that popped up saying something along the lines of, “Are you sure you want to reactivate? Your account will be charged immediately!” I mean there is one that pops up when you deactivate your account, right? 🙂

  12. Is anyone else dealing with delayed add-ons? I added on sunglasses (summer & rose rose gold mirrored) that I was very excited about. But it seems they ran out and are waiting on a shipment at their warehouse. They told me they will ship soon… two weeks ago. And then the same today.

    • Sorry. I received all of mine.

  13. Despite being an annual/select subscriber, my box STILL hasn’t shipped. This happens every single season. I end up getting my box at the end of the month. I’ve emailed them about it multiple times and they always say the same thing, “Your box is processing for shipment now and will be going out on the 5th!”

    Here it is the 8th and all that has happened is a label was created. This reason alone is enough for me to cancel. Why am I paying for a service I don’t receive and the company won’t fix?

    Anyone else have this problem? Were you ever able to get it fixed?

    • That’s so frustrating! My winter box shipped several days after the promised window (I am annual and had add ons). Mine shipped quite early this time, though. I think it mostly evens out in the end. I also think *priority* shipping is a promise FFF can’t reliably meet. Personally, the value from an annual membership for me lies in product customization rather than shipping. I hope your box arrives soon!

    • Hi Jen,

      SO frustrating… I’m a select subscriber and I STILL haven’t gotten my box and it’s March 16. I messaged them about it explaining how ridiculous to be a select subscriber but to get my box later than most regular subscribers!!

      They apologized but didn’t fix the issue, this happened in Winter too. They at least gave me add on shop credit. Very very very annoying.
