Now, time for the items!

I’m going to start with the items that all subscribers will receive:

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Glamglow Bubblesheet Oxygenating Deep CLeanse Mask Front

GLAMGLOW Bubble Sheet (Set of 2) – Retail Value $18

(All subscribers will receive this item.)

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Glamglow Bubblesheet Oxygenating Deep CLeanse Mask Back

This was super fun to use, but it does get pretty foamy/bubbly, so I recommend using it before a shower, so you can easily rinse it off. You leave it on for about 3 minutes, remove, then use the remaining bubbles to cleanse your face – it creates a really rich foam lather.

My skin felt super clean after using it, but also a bit dried out, so just a heads up that you’ll likely want to follow this with your favorite face oil or moisturizer.

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Ahava Mineral Hand Cream Front

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.

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Ahava Mineral Hand Cream Back

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!

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Cylo Cobra Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds White with Box Front

Cylo Cobra Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds White – Value $40

All subscribers will receive this item.

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Cylo Cobra Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds White Side

These earbuds are super comfortable (they come with two different size silicone ear tips), and the sound quality is pretty good for the $40 price point.

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Cylo Cobra Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds White Top

They have a playback time of 4 hours, and also have a built-in microphone so you can use them for calls, too.

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Free People Understand Leather Starry Eyed Travel Eye Front

Free People Understated Leather Eyemask – Retail Value $40

(All subscribers will receive this item.)

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Free People Understand Leather Starry Eyed Travel Eye Back

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:

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Free People Understand Leather Starry Eyed Travel Eye Open Front

I just used this (sans insert) for blocking out any light on a redeye flight and it was a lifesaver!

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Summer & Rose Brittany Tote Bag Front 1

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

(All subscribers will receive this item.)

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Summer & Rose Brittany Tote Bag Front 2

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

(FYI – I’m holding the black version, but you’ll receive the navy striped version shown in the other pictures.)

My only critique of this item in the fall box is that it feels much more summery to me. But it’s such a classic design that it will still be in style when the weather gets warm again 🙂

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Spongelle Freesia Pear Body Wash Infused Buffer with Box Front 2

Spongelle Freesia Pear Body Wash Infused Buffer – Retail Value $16

(All subscribers will receive this item.)

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Spongelle Freesia Pear Body Wash Infused Buffer with Box Front 1

If you aren’t already familiar Spongelle Sponges, they are pretty amazing.

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Spongelle Freesia Pear Body Wash Infused Buffer Side

They are infused with body wash, and the sponge is firmer than your typical bath pouf, so you get exfoliation added in, as well. (And this sponge should last you for about 14 washes!)

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Spongelle Freesia Pear Body Wash Infused Buffer Front

This light floral Freesia Pear scent is my favorite Spongelle scent, too!

Now, here are two choice items in the box:

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Crown Brush 6 Piece Set in Black+Rose Gold Front

Crown Brush 6 Piece Brush Set – Value Listed $75

(Subscribers can pick between this or the ERTH TU Y YO Ring)

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Crown Brush 6 Piece Set in Black+Rose Gold Side

Each brush is made with synthetic, densely-packed bristles.

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Crown Brush 6 Piece Set in Black+Rose Gold Open Front

This set includes:

-Powder Brush
-Blush Brush
-Concealer Brush
-Shadow Brush
-Blending Brush
-Eyeliner Brush
-Travel case

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Crown Brush 6 Piece Set in Black+Rose Gold Side 1

I received this set first in the Fall box and I love it. (The case is really light weight, so it’s perfect for travel.)

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel Front

Elemis Enzyme Papaya Peel – Retail Value $45

(Subscribers can pick between this and Cuccio yogahhh! Detox Bath)

Fab Fit Fun Fall Editors Box October 2018 - Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel Back

This is 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 about $319. I highly recommend grabbing this box with the current flash sale of 40% off – that brings the cost down to $3.75 an item!

  1. I love those Spongelle soap sponges. Theyre great for travel!

  2. Well I Just got mine and I would say $3.75 an item sounds about right considering the quality of all this junk.

  3. I’d be really disappointed personally if I got this box myself. it seems like they collected a lot of their junky and cheap stuff they could not even off load at the edit sale for this box.

  4. Coupon code no longer works. Got this message, “Coupon “OMG40″ does not exist!”

    • Me too! 😥

  5. Time for a reset. They need to take everything. Make free bundles for over $100 in add-ons, get rid of it all and start over.

    Then, I’ll sign back up.

    • That’s a wonderful idea, Stella. I was disappointed in all the repeats that were in the last Edit sale and I have most of the stuff here.

  6. That summer and rose tote is absolutely horrible all 3 of my replacements broke the same way my original one did. My mothers broke and my sisters broke. Yes FFF keep sending out defective low quality items keep sending the same poop over and over and keep losing customers. Awesome NOT. Cancelled my sub

    • And more of those eye masks? Seriously? Think we all have ahava hand cream to last a lifetime by now. Good lord!

  7. how long is that promo code for 40% off on for?

  8. I understand that the Editor’s box is basically left-overs from other boxes but frankly speaking even the “main” box is quite boring. I guess the value is there but personally I don’t need anything they send (except beauty blender but if I’m to buy just beauty blender, it will still be cheaper than buying the box). After I get my winter box, I’ll be canceling.

  9. Geez, they just can’t get rid of those masks can they?

    • sadly i LOVE those masks. i had bought them 2x before this box. expensive but i do love them:)

      maybe they will see this and send me a “close-out deal” LOL

    • The eye mask is too tight for my big ole head! I wish it would been a little more adjustable. And I am really hoping for a great winter box! I LOVED the fall and winter boxes last year, with the fall one being my favorite. I was so disappointed in this year’s fall box. I wanted something more cozy. Scarves, throws, cozy socks, gloves, etc. Who cares if it is done a lot in sub boxes? That is what fall and winter are all about! But in fairness to warmer climate subscribers, it should be a customization option with a totally different choice for them.

  10. I don’t understand the allure of this box at all. They send the same items over and over. I got a friend Editor box last time, forget how long ago but it was all the same stuff then.

    • Completely agree! Always excited about an upcoming editor box & then it’s these same things.

  11. I bought this box when they were advertising the Skyn peel being in it. I got those horrible cheap headphones instead. I’m really not happy about it.

  12. I wasn’t going to sub but 40% off… I have an annual sub but might have to grab this one too. Thank goodness I have numerous email accounts. 🙂

  13. I have most of the things in this box but I love that bag! I used it as my beach bag on vacation this spring then ever since I’ve used it as a regular tote bag for work. I have the blue and would like the black, but blue is fine. The headphones are okay. I definitely don’t need a 3rd eye mask and I have the brushes. But oh, I really want another bag and can always use more spongelles.

  14. I couldn’t find reviews for the earbuds on their website (Why would a website not allow you to leave reviews?)
    So I found a few on Amazon, all from people who had received them from the FFF box, and all 4 left 1 star reviews.
    If they had actually included a reputatable pair of headphones, I would have loved this box. I really wanted to love it, but seeing as the brushes were the only other new items for me, Ill have to reluctantly pass on this one. Maybe the Winter box will pull me back in.

    • Omg these headphones are horrible. I mean there is a level of quality to cheap headphones, and then these are the epitome of CHEAP HEADPHONES. Literally couldn’t get these to even stay in my ear.

      I plan on complaining to FFF about these because they are that horrible.

    • I have used the ear buds, I havent had a problem—but i will say that i looked at these like 10/20$ (or what i would get at marshalls) ones so i was happy they fit and worked. (i am new to subbing soooooo forgive me for my lack of knowledge!)

    • I hate those headphones !! I had to ask for a replacement because one of the earbuds would not work properly. The sound on one earphone was way quieter than the other. Imagine the unevenness of them 😒 Then when they sent a second pair, same defect. Only this time it wasn’t as noticeable as my original. As time went on, one of the earbuds died completely. I was excited for these too, did the 10$ add on for them but it ended up being a waste.

  15. I’m confused. If I order this I might not get the headphones?? That would be a deal breaker.

    • It says all subscribers will receive the headphones.

      • But reading these comments, it sounds like if you live in Hawaii or Alaska, they can’t send headphones and will be sent a Skyn Nordic product instead.

  16. I got a free box from a friend just had to pay 5 in shipping so I’m wondering what kind of box I’ll get if it will be this? Cause I’m on a trial membership it says, I didn’t get to choose any item lol I’m new with this sub box

    • You won’t get this box. I got a friend the free one and it had I think 4 items in it, kind of random items but it was a good value for the $5.

  17. Ok. You talked me into it.

  18. Five of these items are in their free trial box and the headphones I got in the last box aren’t that great. They feel very cheap, fall out easily and definitely don’t stay charged for as long as they claim. Not impressed by this box.

  19. I buy my first box , thank you for the code. My question now is: When will they send the box?

  20. Thank you so much for the fabulous code! I bought this box for my daughter with her email address and name. She’s just now getting a few blemishes and should like the Glamglow masks and the Elemis peel. I know she’ll have a lot of fun with the rest, and if she doesn’t, I can use extras. You never know what a 13 year old is going to like, not like, etc. from one day to the next, am I right? 😉

    I am really stoked to get this box at 40% off for her.

  21. I have that eyemask from one of the past boxes and I find it too heavy to be comfortable. Love those GlamGlow Bubblesheet Masks though.

    • I still have 3 of those masks. Christmas gifts??

      • Christmas gifts for people you haven’t sent free starter boxes too… otherwise they already have the mask and 3 other of the items!

    • I don’t like to sleep with the insert in. It’s definitely too tight/heavy for that. Try taking the insert out for sleeping (you can leave it in the fridge for when you want it).

  22. What happened to the Skyn Iceland Nordic Peel? That was the reason I bought this box!!

    • It looks like that was available in the shop for current subscribers, but the box for new subscribers is the one shown in this review. Sorry for any confusion!

      • FFF told me that the Skyn Iceland is only being shipped to people who live in areas where they can’t ship the headphones. I raised a fuss, because that is NOT the box that was advertised when I bought it.

        If you live in Canada, check with FFF to see what they will send you in place of the headphones.

        • Did they make it right for you? I’m a current subscriber, and I bought two of these boxes during the Edit sale, pretty much solely for the Skyn peel, which is how it was advertised. They’ll lose a good customer in me if they don’t honor what was promised. Argh.

          • Hope you contact their cs. They’re pretty nice, not shorthand autofill type of answers. As long as you reach out to them before your box ships, they will likely make the change, if they have the inventory.

    • That happened to me too. I reached out to customer service twice and both times they said that I don’t get the skyn since I am in the 48 mainland states. 🙁

    • I contacted their customer service, and I am getting the Skyn product in my two boxes, probably because I bought them during the Edit sale. Their customer service really is excellent – I heard back within a few hours, and they were very friendly and accommodating.

  23. This is a really nice Editor’s Box; I normally dislike them.

  24. So can new seasonal subscribers make both choices?

    • I believe so. I’ll double check to verify though.

    • I was able to make a selection… chose the brushes and the Elemis.

      • Oh awesome – thanks for letting us know!

      • I tried to sign up last night for this and got all the way to putting in my credit card info and all I had to do was press the button but I backed out because I never saw a place to customize my box. Did I miss a step or do you customize after you complete the order? 🙂

        • Customization is all done after you sign up. It was easy and painless. 😉

        • I am 99% sure you customize AFTER placing the order! Also, in the regular seasonal boxes, you can choose other custom items if you WANT to add $10 for each ( which is a steal most of the time) but I am not sure if that option is available on Editor Pick boxes during off season…but for sure you should be able to choose between the ones above after placing the order! I believe you can check the Facebook page/posts/comments & this will be confirmed!

        • After you complete the order you customize and create profile. I almost did the same thing.

        • I just ordered the box, and I made the customization after the order, so I’m pretty sure that’s how it is for everybody 🙂

          I live in Canada, so I contacted FFF about the headphones, fingers crossed that I get them!

        • You get to customize afterwards. Thats what happened to me when I signed up a few seasons ago. Right after your credit card is accepted, it should go straight to the customize screen. Hope that helps.
