Check out all of my FabFitFun Box reviews and the Women’s Subscription Box Directory!

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.

And here is the info card:

With this Editor’s Box, you actually get to pick some of your items, so I’ll show you all options in this review. 

All new subscribers will be able to pick from the following:

AND if you sign up for an annual subscription, you’ll get to pick two more of your items:

Now, time for the items! First, I’ll show you the choice items. Then the items everyone will receive.

Choice #1: Rachel Pally Reversible Clutch in Bloom or Paradise OR Summer & Rose Striped Tote with Black Stripes or Blue Stripes

Rachel Pally Reversible Clutch in Bloom – Retail Value $60

(You can pick this or the Paradise Print)

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 is a pocket inside.

Summer & Rose Striped Tote with Black Stripes – Retail Value $54

This is a lightweight canvas tote with rope handles and faux leather accents. And it is lined with two pockets:

I love that it has a zipper closure, too. A very practical beach bag! Here it is in hand to give you a better sense of scale:

And here is the blue stripe version:

It’s easy to wear over your shoulder, and the fabric is lightweight. (For reference, this isn’t as heavy duty as the canvas from this Baggu bag.)

Choice #2: Grace & Stella Bath Bombs – 4 Pack OR MYTAGALONGS Hot/Cold Pack

Grace & Stella Bath Bombs – Retail Value $16

These bath bombs are individually wrapped and ingredient-conscious. They smell fab, too!

The set includes:

  • Energize (Grapefruit & Mandarin)
  • Wellness (Fig & White Peach)
  • Good Vibes (Red Rose)
  •  Keep Calm (French Lavender)

My TagAlongs Hot & Cold Gel Pack – Value $15

What a practical fitness item! (And I think this is the cutest heat pack I’ve ever seen!)

It’s freezable and microwavable, so it works for both heat and cold therapy.

Choice #3: Spongelle Body Wash Infused Buffer in French Lavender OR Daily Concepts Hair Towel Wrap (Only annual subscribers have a choice on this set of items.)

Spongellé Body Wash Infused Buffer in French Lavender – Value $16

This is one of my favorite subscription box beauty discoveries!

If you aren’t familiar with Spongelle, you are in for a treat! It infused with body wash, and the sponge is firmer than your typical bath pouf, so you get exfoliation added in, as well! (And it should last for at least 14 uses!)

Daily Concepts Your Hair Wrap Towel – Retail Value $18

I love these hair wrap towels! I first tried one thanks to the Summer Box of Style, and they are great!

To use it, you put it on your head, then wrap up the bottom part to hook onto the button at the top.

It’s a soft and absorbent fabric (100% Polyester) that is designed to help your hair dry faster.

I also like these towels for keeping hair masks/treatments in place. I’ve slept with this towel on with mixed results, too. (Depending on how much you toss and turn, it may or may not stay on overnight!)

Choice #4: tarte Double Duty Beauty leave your mark eyeshadow palette OR tarte tarteist glossy lip paint in “obvi” & tarteist quick dry matte lip paint in “salty” (Only annual subscribers have a choice on this set of items.)

tarte Double Duty Beauty leave your mark eyeshadow palette – Retail Value $30

Obviously, you can’t go wrong with tarte, but if you signed up as an annual subscriber and are debating which tarte set to go for – I’d say go for the palette.

For starters, it is super cute!

But more importantly, the colors are stunning. Excellent pigment, a great mix of matte and shimmer shades, easy to blend, and very little fallout.

Here are the shades swatched:

And if you sign up for an annual subscription you’ll be able to pick between this palette or this set of two tarte lippies:

tarteist quick dry matte lip paint in “salty” – Retail Value $20

The formula is really lightweight, dries quickly, and it is mostly smudge proof immediately. It has a matte finish, and the pigment is fab, too.

(Swatched in lower photo.)

tarte tarteist glossy lip paint in “obvi” – Retail Value $20

This is a pale rosy shade with good pigment and a glossy finish.The formula is moisturizing and non-sticky, too. The color is a little more light than I usually go, but this is great for a no-makeup look.

Here it is swatched beneath the matte lip paint:

And here are the non-choice items that will be in all boxes:

Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask – Retail Value $30

This mask is free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates – and it is safe for color treated hair!

There are two ways to use this mask – let it sit on your hair for 5-10 minutes after massaging it into your roots, then rinse out. Or for deeper hydration, cover your hair with a plastic shower cap and sit under a dryer, applying direct heat for 30 minutes, then rinse.

I tried the 5-10 minute version, and I could definitely feel a difference in the softness of my hair after using it. 

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate – 1.7 oz Value $75

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

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.

Homemade by Ayesha Curry Ceramic Mug – Value $16

(All subscribers will receive this exact design.)

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

Free People Understated Leather Eyemask – Retail Value $40

(You’ll receive this in mint or the grey pictured here.)

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

 

Verdict: I think this is the best Editor’s Box I’ve ever seen. I love how many choices you get, too! Depending on what you pick, the value is anywhere from $276-$295. With the MSA10 coupon, you can get this box for $39.99 or just under $5 an item!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes!

Can someone explain to me the diff boxes and prices? I see an Editors and Annual. Tnen I see some saying they get other boxes shipped from members? If you sign up for one of these will you be charged for future boxes? I didn’t sign up because I was afraid I would get stuck with more awful colored tastiest lip products
Boxy sent them to us and I couldn’t give them away. I do appreciate anyone taking time to answer… Oh, is the annual box suppose to be better? It says it costs members more for this box which is silly. That should be a reward for being loyal. Thank you

Lisa M.

I thought that I had just ordered the editor’s box, and made choices for items in the editor’s box, but my e-mail confirmation says that I am subscribed to the seasonal box. Does this sound right? I am new to FFF, and I’m not sure how my confirmation should read. I assumed the receipt would show the editor’s box. Are the seasonal box and editor’s box the same thing? Also, if they aren’t the same, does ordering an editor’s box automatically enroll you in the seasonal subscription? TIA

Missy

They are different and the biggest way you can tell is by price! I’m not sure if you used a coupon or not so I’m gonna give you the full prices, if you got a seasonal box subscription you will be paying 49.99 every 3 months and if you purchased the annual subscription you will be paying 179.99 a year. And YES ordering the editors box DOES enroll u in the subscription. The editors box is an introduction box that’s offered in between seasonal boxes. This will start a seasonal subscription. Hope this helps! You will LOVE FFF! I do!

Pam

I just signed up for FFF myself on Saturday. I’m (im)patiently 😂 awaiting for my editors box to be shipped. And also for my turn as a seasonal subscriber to the add ons! I’ve already discovered how great the FFF community is! I’ve only rec’d 2 psmh boxes (my first was their last monthly box and then my most recent box-the first quarterly box). I’m canceling my psmh sub once I receive this current box and will probably subscribe annually to FFF. I feel like FFF is a much better fit for me and I’m very excited!

Chrissy Disibio

Does anyone know why the coupon code ASAP isn’t working? I saw on My Subscription Addiction it was good til May 6 and was posted 6 days ago…?

Pam

I just used it today. Maybe try again?

Monica

I just got this box in the mail and I just have to say, the lip products were a huge disappointment. The shade did not look at all like the swatch here on me IRL. The shade actually matches my skin tone almost exactly, and it looks like I am wearing foundation on my lips. My skin tone is medium with yellow undertones, so just FYI, for others like me. I think these would work better for people with significantly darker skin tones than me.

LeAnn

I am hoping this box sells out quick. I love FabFitFun! I am an annual member and this box is temping me. It is everything I don’t need and everything I want.

ks

BTW, for those who order this and renew the sub at the same time…you do get charged the $100. Yikes.

Sav

Yes, wasn’t expecting that!

Tara

This is the 3rd editors box I’ve gotten and every single one they wait the full 10 days to ship. I ordered 10 days ago and no shipping yet. I just find it annoying. Anywhere else that you shop online wouldn’t wait a full 10 days to ship items that you have paid for! Ok rant over!

Christina p

I guess I got lucky then…ordered on april 28, shipped may 1!

Moore-Cooper

Got shipping notice today. ETA Friday the 13th! Lol Go figure.

Anna

I had the same problem with quarterly box shipping, they wait a full ten business days before “shipping” except that instead of shipping it sits with label created.

Margie

I contacted them, even though I knew what they were going to say- 10 days, that’s business days BTW. I don’t get it either. They take your money right away! Why not just ship them out! Rant, rant…

cary san

what were the add on liz i was unable to select them because i am using safari browser on ipad. said their website works better with chrome

Elizabeth

When does it ship??

Laura

Does anyone know when this ships? I can’t wait! I’m sos excited, I may order another one! 😬

ks

Mine JUST shipped.

Kele

I finally bit or rather I couldn’t stop myself anymore. I chose the blue tote/eye shadow palette/body buffer/hot & cold pack. So excited! Thank you for the wonderfully detailed review, Liz!

Courtney

Does anyone happen to know when this box will ship?

Amber Morris

I am hoping soon! I l am an annual member but usually the editor’s boxes as well! I am running out of my Exfoliate Kate which I love and makes my skin feel and look so Good! I love anything Tarte So I’m excited! My dog got a hold of my Free People eye mask and busted the cooling insert inside! This eye mask has helped me with headaches and definitely sleeping! I am like a little kid on Christmas everyone I get my box so I am hoping it comes soon😀 I ordered it as soon as the editor’s box was available and received an email I would get another one when it’s ready which takes 10 days..I am pretty sure it was the 25th or 26th so I am hoping I will get my email soon with the tracking #..Hope this helps! My email is long and I know Gone with the Wind has already been written..Lol..Thank you fabfitfun for always helping me and answering my questions! You are the best!

Cindy

I just ordered one. Did that palette come in some other box in the past? I feel like I got it before and gave it away. (Note that is not stopping me from receiving another…..)

Dena

I have not seen this pallet ever in my 6 seasons, not even in the add ons.

Cindy

Was thinking it came in some other subscription box, though.

Lacy

Does anybody want to do a box split? I’m most interested in the Spongelle, Free People eye mask and Tarte eye shadow pallet, but could also live with the hot/cold pack. lacyann1985 @ gmail.com

Andrea

I would totally do a box split!! I’m after the bag…lol

Lacy

Andrea, you should email me! Let’s do it! lacyann1985 @ gmail.com

Kathi

THIS box looks AMAZING!
! I really liked the Spring Box but I have a feeling I am going to LOVE this box!!
Excited!!

*I chose the eyeshadow ,black and white bag,hair wrap & bath bombs! Can’t wait!

Liz Cadman

It’s such a great box! Hope you love it!

Jillian Benson

I bought 2! One that I had no choices and the other I bought from the shop with what I wanted. I hope I don’t get too many duplicates but for the price I had to. Mabye I’ll save some for Xmas gifts!

Jacki

I had to get 2 so I could get all the variations I want!

Heather

I want that Tarte palette! If anyone wants to swap theirs, please hit me up!!!

Liz W.

Are you still interested in swapping the tarte palette?!

TDC

I’m an annual subscriber and want to buy the box, but the MSA10 code doesn’t work. What am I missing?

beth

It only works for new subscribers

Anna

The code is for new subscriptions.

Brittany

I basically just ordered this for the ExfoliKate! It’s soooo good! I am so much more excited about this than I was for the spring box. I went with the black tote, eyeshadow, towel, and bath bombs for my selections.

Emilia

I like this box way more than the spring edition. I picked the eyeshadow palette, bath bombs, hair towel and an orange (hopefully) clutch.

Gwendylon

Me too! I love this box the spring box was MEH! Summer box is my last one and I’m going to cancel and wait for the VIP boxes to come out.

beth

This box is an amazing value! Was about to reorder exfolikate and spongelle, so everything else is icing on the cake. Love the tote, bath bombs, mug…the only thing I could truly live the rest of my life without is another boriego hair product. Thrilled with this!

melanie711

I think this is the best box ever! Of course, having said that I don’t need any of it lol. I was so panicked like in the capsule sale that it would disappear I didn’t think through my choices. I love 3 out 4.

Black tote
Eyeshadow
Bath bombs
Hair wrap (wish I had grabbed a spongelle)

But I’m so excited for this box!

Sav

I caved and resubscribed to get this box (bought in the shop). I think for the first time ever I will actually use everything, thanks to being able to choose!!!

Sav

Liz, If I reactivate it is saying I will receive the summer box, not this editors box. Did this happen to anyone else? Is it sold out?

LB

I noticed that last night when I was checking to see if I reactivated one of my accounts I could get the editors box. It seems like you have to be either a brand new subscriber (and then you get 2 out of the 4 choices unless you upgrade to annual) or you have to be a current subscriber and buy it for $50 from the shop (and you get all 4 choices). You could try to reactivate your account, sign up for summer and then buy this box from the online shop maybe too. But I’d verify with CS first.

Sav

Thanks, I think that is what I will do!

Redhed36

Well… Pathetic strikes again. I am an annual member and picked; black tote, towel, ice pack, and the eyeshadow pallet. Ugh and I don’t need any of it. 😃

Bethany

I caved too!! Blue tote, bath bombs, palette, Spongelle. I just couldn’t resist especially since we got to pick so many items!

Dani

Bethany we are box twins! Those were my choices too! Love it.

Sav

Agreed, I resubscribed to get this. Seems like a great box!!
