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.
This page shows all the different items that are available for customization, and the page on the right shows the items that all subscribers will receive.
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!)
I’m going to start with the items that all subscribers will receive:
Foreo Luna Fofo – Retail Value $89
(All subscribers will receive this item. Colors will vary.)
This is a brand new product from Foreo – it isn’t even available to purchase yet! (It’s officially launching first in the Summer FabFitFun box!)
FYI – if you’ve seen the mini Foreo Play in subscription boxes before, this is larger (about 2.5 inches across), and it has a replaceable AAA battery! (The battery should last for up to 400 uses before needing to be replaced.)
Here it is in hand to give you a better sense of scale:
If you aren’t familiar with the Foreo, it’s a pulsating device that allows you to get a much deeper clean when cleansing your face. (Similar to a Clarisonic.)
I’d been a Clarisonic user for years, but last year I switched to Foreo thanks to the first time I sampled this device!
Both Clarisonic and Foreo do a great job of cleaning my skin thoroughly. The big difference for me is the silicone brush surface area. It’s nonporous and will resist any bacteria build up. With Clarisonic, you have to always buy replacement brush heads. (At $22 a new brush head, switched out every 2-3 months, the costs add up!) Plus, this design is way cuter! 🙂
And see those two metal skin sensors on the back? This new Foreo is extra high-tech! You download their app (not available yet, but should be before this box ships), then use the sensors to analyze your skin, and get a custom cleansing plan that syncs with the device. (I’ll update this review once the app is available and I can try it!)
COOLA Face Sport SPF White Tea Moisturizer – Retail Value $32
(All subscribers will receive this item.)
Coola is probably my favorite sunscreen brand. Their formulas are ingredient-conscious, work well, and their scents are divine, too. Usually, I only see Coola in subscription boxes in the form of tiny samples, so I was thrilled to see a full-size product in this box!
This formula is certified organic, vegan, and gluten free. Plus it is a moisturizer + SPF 50 in one!
The cream formula blends in easily to give you a clear finish, the white tea scent is light and lovely, and no greasy finish!
Pier 1 Imports Marble Ring Dish – Retail Value $14.99
(All subscribers will receive this item.)
This is a glazed ceramic trinket dish with a marble design.
The edges have a metallic gold accent. Here is a closer look:
I always love when a subscription box includes a home item, and I think this is a perfect fit for that category. It’s simple, classy, and can work as a jewelry tray, a soap dish, or in my case, a place to wrangle all my lip balms.
Here it is with a few items to give you a better sense of scale:
(It measures about 4 inches across.)
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!
Summer & Rose Beach Towel – Retail Value $55
All subscribers will be able to pick between this towel (in one of two prints) or a Yumi Kim train case. (I’ll show you all the other options at the end of the review.) You have until May 18th at 11:59 PM PST to make your selection.
This is a microfiber towel, so sand won’t stick to it! It’s also super soft and oversized!
Here I am holding it up in my tallest of heels:
It measures 39 X 72 inches.
I love this tropical print so much! So bright and cheery!
(100% Polyester, Machine Wash Warm, Air Dry)
Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress Muscle Gel – Retail Value $39
All subscribers will be able to pick between this gel, a ring, or a body scrub. (I’ll show you all the other options at the end of the review.) You have until May 18th at 11:59 PM PST to make your selection.
If you are a fan of lavender essential oil, I highly recommend picking this item! It’s an ingredient-conscious gel formula that is so light and soothing! Do you ever get a beauty product that has such a great scent that you can’t stop smelling it? That’s what is happening with me with this muscle gel – I keep smelling my arm where I applied it!
Next up, we have the Select items. If you aren’t familiar, every season, FabFitFun allows annual subscribers to pick their choice between different items to customize their box. If you aren’t a Select member (annual subscriber), FabFitFun will pick the item for you. Annual subscribers have until May 18th at 11:59 PM PST to make their selection.
Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow Highlight & Contour Palette – Retail Value $45
Annual subscribers will be able to pick between this palette, or a tarte Pro to-go palette and eyeliner set. (I’ll show you all the other options at the end of the review.) You have until May 18th at 11:59 PM PST to make your selection.
How stunning is this palette? It’s a black matte case, with gold accents, magnetic flap closures, and mirrors on either side when you open it:
The top four shades are super shimmery highlights, and the bottom two colors are creams for sculpting and shading. (And this palette smells like chocolate!)
Here they are swatched:
The pigment is excellent throughout, and they were easy to blend, too. (A must for a contour palette!)
Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator – Retail Value $29
Annual subscribers will be able to pick between this face scrub, a resistance band, or a wallet. (I’ll show you all the other options at the end of the review.) You have until May 18th at 11:59 PM PST to make your selection.
I’ve sampled this before, and I love the formula, so this was an easy pick for me! It’s a super-fine exfoliant, gentle enough to use 3-5 times a week, and it makes my skin feel incredibly smooth and clean.
Elemis Enzyme Papaya Peel – Retail Value $45
Annual subscribers will be able to pick between this peel, or a hair protectant spray. (I’ll show you all the other options at the end of the review.) You have until May 18th at 11:59 PM PST to make your selection.
Elemis is a great skincare brand, so I decided to pick this as my final selection. It’s designed to exfoliate and purify skin with non-abrasive fruit enzymes. Just apply for 10 minutes, then remove with water. Super easy to use, super gentle on my skin, and it left my skin feeling soft and moisturized. (You can use this for up to two times a week.)
Verdict: This box has a retail value of $348.99! As always, I’m so impressed with how many items FabFitFun delivers for $49.99. I don’t know how they do it – this box is full of name brands I love so much I pay full price for, and I love how much customization they are now offering to subscribers. I don’t think there are any bad options in this box either – I love the towel + train case equally – if you are thinking of adding the other one to your box for an additional $10, I recommend it!
In my opinion – this is the best box FabFitFun has ever done!

Ready to see the other options? Here are the other options that are available to subscribers:
Yumi Kim Makeup Train Case – Retail Value $58
These makeup train cases are such nice quality! The materials (shell is PVC, lining is polyester) make it easy to wipe up any makeup spills, too.
The top section of the case includes a section for makeup brushes and a zippered compartment.
And there’s a second zippered section on the bottom for more storage:
This case measures about 10 inches long, 6 inches across, and about 5 inches deep. It fit all my makeup with room to spare!
And here is the other pattern option:
ERTH Tu Y Yo Ring – Retail Value $55
This ring is 14K gold plated, with a brass base, and Certified Natural Cultured Freshwater Pearls.
I love the unique and minimalist design! Here it is on:
FYI – it’s adjustable, but I found it easier to make larger, than to make much smaller than a size 7.
Jaboneria Marianella Hawaiian Black Lava Body Caviar – Retail Value $48
First, love this packaging! So luxe! And the formula is ingredient-conscious!
It’s a decadent salt-based scrub that is infused with coconut oil to give you lots of moisture. It’s excellent for serious exfoliation, but if you have very sensitive skin, I’d recommend sticking with a milder, sugar scrub.
Tarte Tartiest Pro To Go Palette – Retail Value $23
This is a mix of 3 mattes and 3 shimmer eyeshadows. And just like the other tarte palette, the pigments are great and the formulas are easy to blend!
Tarte Sex Kitten Liquid Liner – Retail Value $20
How cute is this eyeliner pen cap? The eyeliner goes on smoothly and is super inky and pigmented – exactly what you would expect from a great liquid eyeliner. And it doesn’t budge once it sets!
Minor History Post Script Wallet – Retail Value $20
This wallet has a wrist strap (seems perfect for travel and keeping track of your room key + cash), and gold accents.
The material is vegan leather, and it measures 2.5″ H x 4.5″ W.
It should be able to hold a few cards and cash.
Maji Sports Loop Resistance Band – Retail Value $15
This resistance band is another great travel item! And FabFitFun TV (a free channel for all subscribers) will feature workouts for this band!
Orlando Pita Play Atmos-Shield Hair Protectant Treatment Spray – Retail Value $34
This spray is a 10-in-1 thermal heat protection spray that provides an invisible weightless barrier to help combat damage caused by heat, UV rays, humidity, pollution and free radicals. I love that you can use it on both dry or damp hair, too. And it smells fab!
Ok, that’s it! Thanks if you stuck with me the whole way through! Let me know what you think of all the options!
