Check out all of my FabFitFun VIP 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.

This page shows all the different items that are available for customization and the items that all subscribers will receive. The pink box on the bottom right page shows the 3 items all subscribers get – everything else will vary!

And the magazine features content besides the items in the box, too. For example, this season they included a checklist for 50 ways to show gratitude, and there is a horoscope section:

Now, time for the items!

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

Manna Kadar Champagne Charcoal Scrub – Retail Value $24

I have to admit, Manna Kadar cosmetics products have felt a little over-played in subscription boxes a few years, so I’m always a little hesitant when I see this brand in a box. However, I’m happy to report that this scrub was a lovely surprise for me! It has a subtle sweet + fruity scent, the scrub isn’t too abrasive, and the formula doesn’t leave your skin overly oily.

Also, full-size body scrubs are pretty rare in subscription boxes (they are heavy!) so this is an extra win in my book!

OUAI Leave In Conditioner – $26

I think whether or not you love this product will likely come down to if you love the scent. Ouai products are strongly scented, and they do linger, so I recommend getting a quick whiff before spritzing + committing! I really like the scent (it’s kind of like hair perfume), and the formula itself is lovely, too. It’s a great detangler, and it doesn’t weigh down my hair.

dr. brandt skincare needles no more NO MORE BAGGAGE  eye de-puffing gel – $42

I try SO many de-puffing, under-eye eye treatments, and this is one of the few that I could actually feel and see working! After I applied the gel, it immediately gave my skin a cooling feeling. Then, over the next few minutes, I could actually feel a subtle tightening of my skin. (The tightening goes away when you wash this off.)

It has an orange tint, which I think helps conceal the blue tones of undereye circles, but it didn’t make enough of a difference there for me to go without undereye concealer. And it gives your skin a smooth, powdery finish. (And just FYI, this isn’t an aloe-vera-type gel, it takes some effort to squeeze it out of the tube!)

Looking at the reviews on Sephora, it seems like people either love or hate this. I’m a fan, but I’m guessing it doesn’t work as well for all skin types.

Now, the items that are choices.

All subscribers can pick a Show Me Your Mumu robe, Deux Lux Backpack, or Diffuser:

Show Me Your Mumu Robe – Retail Value $84

This is one of my favorite items in the box – I love the brand, and this floral print is exactly what I need to look forward to Spring!

It’s 100% polyester, fits up to a size 16, and hand wash cold.

This robe features a tie belt and a high-low hem.

The fabric is soft and lightweight, but not too sheer. I think it is the perfect weight for a warmer weather robe.

Here it is on:

(For reference, I’m 5’7″, and somewhere between a size Medium + Large at Forever 21.)

Next Choice: All subscribers are able to pick Quay sunglasses (2 different styles), SunnyLife Picnic Set, or a Korres Sleep Mask:

QUAY AUSTRALIA Vivienne Sunglasses in Black/Smoke – Retail Value $60

If you aren’t familiar with Quay, they are a great sunglasses brand from Australia. (I love that for the cost of the box, $49.99 (or $39.99 with coupon MSA10), you can get a pair of Quay Sunglasses for less than retail, and essentially get 7 other full-size items for free!)

Here are the measurements:

  • Width: 148MM
  • Height: 60MM
  • Nose Gap: 14MM

I picked these frames because I love aviator sunglasses – and the black metal frames are so classic.

Here they are on:

Next choice! All subscribers are able to pick Giadzy Copper Plated Measuring Spoons, Lavido Aromatic Body Lotion in Mandarin, Orange & Bergamot, or Mystery Item.

Lavido Aromatic Body Lotion – Retail Value $19

I picked this lotion because it is ingredient-conscious, and I was going for a bit of a spa theme with my curation of this box!

The formula is moisturizing but not greasy, and it has a scent blend of Mandarin, Orange & Bergamot. It’s a little more fragrant than I was expecting, but I like the scent, so that’s OK with me!

Next up, annual subscribers are able to pick TULA Purifying Face Cleanser, Daily Concepts Daily Detox Brush, or EleVen by Venus Jump Rope. If you aren’t an annual subscriber, FabFitFun will pick for you:

Daily Concepts Daily Detox Massaging Brush – Retail Value $18

Continuing the spa theme, I picked this dry brush! If you aren’t familiar, dry brushing can help make your skin softer with gentle exfoliation. (There’s also potential benefits of lymphatic massage.)

This brush includes massaging nodules in addition to the dry brush bristles, too:

FYI – I recommend applying light pressure (in circular motions) when first using this – that’s all I needed for soft skin! (And any more pressure would have been too rough.)

Lastly, annual subscribers are able to pick The2Bandits™ Athens Necklace, Ciaté London Extraordinary Translucent Setting Powder, or S’ip by S’well (colors will be randomly selected). If you aren’t an annual subscriber, FabFitFun will pick for you:

S’ip by S’well – Value $19.99

S’ip by S’well is just like the original S’well brand – but with more playful prints and colors.

The bottle is 15 oz, double walled, and keeps hot drinks hot, or cold drinks cold all day.

And how cute is this whale design?

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

(FYI colors and patterns will vary! Both patterns and solid colors are possible.)


Verdict: This box has a value of $292.99! I think that’s amazing for $49.99! (And this is actually the lowest-value option of the box. Depending on your selections, the value could be as high as $335.) At $49.99 for this box, that works out to $6.25 an item!

Now that FabFitFun is offering more customization in items than ever before, I think it’s kind of on the subscriber to make the box feel curated. I went with a spa-day curation theme, and I’m very happy with the results!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? As of today, 2/26, yes! (You’ll be able to make your product selections after you sign up.)

  1. I got the Quay Vivienne sunglasses since the My Girl was out but it really doesn’t work with my face. Anyone want to swap? Tried to get on the swap but it’s by invite only.

  2. Why does FABFITFUN bother creating a profile where they ask if I like Necklaces – NO or Wellness, NO, ask if I Workout – NO again, I’m Disabled! They even asked my age. I recieved a gumball machine Necklace for a kid, and a Jump Rope instead of the other age – lifestyle appropriate items offered. I also answered that NO, I don’t have children, so I can’t even give these to anyone. Very disappointed! I greatly appreciate the opportunity to vent my opinions here : ) and hope FFF reads and acts on them. Glad I didn’t sign up for a full year.

    • It would actually be better if you signed up for a year, because you would’ve been able to choose other items than the ones FFF randomly selected for you. I upgraded to annual a while ago, so I was able to dodge the jump rope and necklace, cause I knew I would never use them. That being said, I’ve heard of seasonal subscribers who are disabled chatting with CS that were able to avoid getting an exercise item. It may be worth a shot next time.

  3. Liz’s box is not the lowest value option. Mine is $259.95. I got a diffuser which doesn’t work, the jump rope, and the necklace. Of course.

  4. Those of you who don’t like your water bottle: check your local Target. If they carry the same model/size, they’ll probably exchange it for you. They can still sell the other pattern.

  5. Got my box yesterday. Sunglasses were missing. Chatted with CS and they said they will send them in 2 weeks.The robe fits beautifully, better than I expected. I thought it would be way too short based on comments but I love the fit. Tried the korres cream – I thought this was the same one that I tried in an allure box and loved but I guess it’s a different cream from the same line. Does not have as strong of a rose scent as I remembered (I liked that as I find the rose scent relaxing and it was nice before bed) and it was thicker than the cream I thought it was but it felt very nice and high quality, so I like it. I tried the eye cream too and I really liked it – It felt very nice putting it on and I THOUGHT I saw a difference this morning but that could be just placebo, I dunno! That’s all I’ve tried so far but I’m happy with what I’ve tried 🙂

  6. I am so frustrated with FFF right now. I finally received my box, the glasses are missing, the mystery item is missing and they did not sent my add ons or my Valentine Mystery pack. Just the normal box and even the box was missing two items. I already talked to costumer service and they are going to look into it but it seems like a lot to just forget all my add ons, valentine mystery pack, and two items from my box. Definitely not happy with FFF right now. I really hope they can fix it.

  7. My box was supposed to be delivered yesterday…checked again this morning and now it says scheduled delivery friday. Ugh I HATE fedex smartpost!!!
