  1. I’m really enjoying my spring boxes. I used my $40 add on credit to buy a 2nd box-so it was free. The weighted mask is my favorite item,, by far, and since RV is just about the price of the box, everything else is just a bonus for me 🙂

    In my main box I got:
    Cardigan- comfy to lounge in
    Weighted sleep mask- absolutely love this. It is heavier than I thought it would be and is perfect for savasana and when I am getting body work done.
    Packing cubes- I travel a lot for work and I love these.
    Shower speaker- kind of subpar sound but it’s ok for carrying with me on hikes when I want more sound than what my phone speaker can provide.
    Body oil- haven’t opened this yet as I am still working on my last open bottle in a different scent. I am sure I will love it just as much
    Body cocoon lotion: excited to try this. I have insomnia so it’s useful to me
    Wander mascara- I already have two tubes of this so I will pass it on or donate it
    Purlisse energizing peel- I love this stuff. I bought 3 tubes in a past add on sale. Happy to have another

    2nd (FREE) box;
    Rug- eh. Not really my style, but I’ll find a use for it. Maybe I will paint/dye it and then hang on my wall.
    Umbrella- Eh. It’s cute, but it doesn’t rain a lot in Cali. I’ll pass it on.
    Cosmedix- I’ve been using this on the back of my hands for sun damage- happy to have a 2nd one
    Another body oil- will donate
    Another body cocoon- will keep
    Winky lux lip balm- useful
    Ag Hair fast food- LOVE LOVE LOVE. It smells really good and softens my really dry ends up nicely without weighing my hair down.
    Black Orchid Spongelle. Will donate. Not a fan of Spongelle. Too artificially scented

  2. I finally got a confirmation email that my box shipped YAAAY! Double check, only my addons and ONE of my big box items is included. This is weird and highly disappointing. I always received everything in one box and my addons are only 4 small cosmetic bottles. At least the box item included is the 111SKIN which I think I paid for as an extra choice but I still added 2 more extra items so this just seems sloppy.

    In case this is the only message of mine the fabfitfun lurker sees, I am in no way renewing or going to buy a seasonal box.

  3. I found this season to be HIGHLY disappointing! Didn’t love them recycling old items and in addition, even though I’m a select member (and customization was supposed to open at 9am), it would not allow me to do ANY selections until close to 1PM. By then, at least 4 or 5 items (all ones I wanted) were already sold out. That’s such BS…they shouldn’t offer items that they don’t have enough of to get through even the first day! I truly wonder what was left for seasonal members to choose from. When I saw that, I exercised my right to skip this box. I also am very bothered that they keep advertising things they can’t offer because they’re sold out. False advertising to new customers. I also wonder how many of the products were snatched by influencers before any REAL members could choose them…

  4. I find it hilarious how many people complained about the throwback items and how awful they were, yet they were the only things not available for basic subscribers. I would have done multiple add-ons, but most of the secondary items I wanted were gone this morning. So thank you for saving me money!

  5. Wow this is so disappointing. I was sure FFF would divide the stock up evenly, leaving enough for seasonal subs since they said they were trying to make it fair for all members! I convinced my extremely cheap mom to get this box for the skincare and luckily I forgot to order it because she would have been angry withit all being sold out.
    This was also the last box of my year and since I can’t afford another year at the moment, figured I’d just go seasonal since I usually don’t care about the 2 extra choice categories. Now? That won’t even be worth it unless FFF makes a big change. I hope everyone fills out those dumb surveys they send after every visit to their website. And omg why the heck hasn’t my box even shipped when people are already receiving theirs? I love the items in my box this month but otherwise, I’m extremely unhappy.

    • Why would they “make it fair” to everybody? I think their policy has always been select members get more benefits. Pay more and get dibs.

      • Stupid me assumed that their reason for splitting the selection dates was to make sure everyone had access. Doesn’t matter, I’m not renewing my sub. Now with all of the recent firings I wonder if they’ll even last another year.

      • Um select doesn’t pay more, they pay less actually. They just pay it all up front instead of seasonally. Just FYI

        • Actually annual/select may pay more if seasonal members elect to cancel then join with a coupon each season. Select members pay $45 per box. Seasonal members can pay as low as $30 per box.

          • Well, to be honest if they keep offering 120$+ bundles to new members and nothing to faithful customers why wouldn’t people cancel and subscribe again? What’s the incentive to just keep your subscription active?

          • I completely agree! That’s why I don’t feel too bad that annual members get first/more choices. There has to be a benefit or people are not going to remain annual members.

          • Maybe to be able to choose 5 customizations instead of just 3? That’s why I stay annual. And first dibs at sales.

          • I am already regretting joining as an annual member. I did it because I was planning on unsubscribing to Boxycharm, and thought this would help. I didn’t get any kind of welcome gift or discount. In fact, I only found out after the fact I will be charged $8.00 shipping to Canada and another $8.00 shipping for add on items, even though they sent them in the same box. I don’t regret leaving boxy, but getting silicone straws as a lifestyle item was very disappointing.

          • When you cancel and sign back up, do you just use the same email address as before? And does that work with promo codes? Or do you use a different email address each time?

          • I’m pretty sure you would need a new email if you were using a promo code. Sometimes if you cancel your seasonal account between boxes, FFF will offer a discount or sale credit to resub. Then you would use the same email. I hope that makes sense.

    • If your mom is looking for a cheap box for skincare, Ipsy might be perfect for her! Or I’m sure some of the other subscriptions reviewed here have great options! While I haven’t tried it, I know BoxyCharm has FFF style sales as well, though I think they have a lot of makeup as well as skincare.

      I had a lot of fun with FFF but ultimately have no regrets after letting my subscription expire! I still pick up a seasonal box now and then when there are heavy discounts, but I’m happy going without my annual – I just don’t have a need for much more stuff even with the great value/discounts

      • I just want to throw out why I joined Ipsy because I haven’t heard of other people mentioning this. I started being away from home one to two nights a week and it was a pain to take my full size products and I don’t like wasting product by filling travel size jars. Ipsy was a fun way to get travel sizes that weren’t drug store brands which I would never use and get to sample things I’d actually buy plus the makeup is great. Surprisingly, Pixi is now one of my fav brands but Ipsy is great for frequent travelers. Then I got hooked on sub boxes and now fff lol

  6. I just got the email and almost everything is sold out already. Wtf.

    • Does anyone know what is left?

      • All of the throwbacks were gone when I logged in as soon as the sale opened today, with the exception of the Tarte highlighter palette. That couldn’t be added-on, but I think it was available as a first choice.

        I have a main account that’s select, but I wanted enough of the items that it made sense to just get a second seasonal box. I left my secondary choices that were not throwbacks for the seasonal box, so was able to get the things I wanted. I feel so bad for the seasonal account holders because they really didn’t have much to choose from today. I thought maybe FFF would add some different throwbacks to fill-in for the stuff that sold out, but they didn’t.

      • Just the jewelry, crappy household goods and ugly ass sweater

    • I also just got the email saying customization is open and all of my first choices were sold out! I’ve never seen this before. Will unsubscribe if I have to sign up for annual all of a sudden just to have access to all of the options!

    • Same here. Literally just opened for me and I strongly dislike my options! I’m not picky either but a I don’t subscribe for the jewelry, clothes, household goods.. I don’t want any of that crap.. I want the makeup, hygiene, skin, beauty products.. but those are ALWAYS limited supply. It’s like they force you to upgrade the already expensive box just to make it some what worth it. I’m giving it one more go and then cancelling. All the add ons I wanted were sold out too..

  7. Super bummed the Tarte moisturizer was sold out, and I went online the second it opened…

    • It was sold out almost as soon as the annual sale started. It’s a good product…I’m sorry you missed it 🙁

  8. I cannot believe I got my box today with all of my add-on’s included. Not too impressed with some of the items that were not spoiled but I think I’ll use all of it. This was a pleasant surprise and a nice Valentine’s Day gift to myself 😀!

    • What?! You already got your box?? Mine says “awaiting shipment”!

    • What were the extra item?

      • I’m referring to what everyone will get or at least some people since there may be different variations. I received the wander beauty Mile high mascara, winky luxe rainbow lip balm and the works body cream. The rainbow lip balm is supposed to change colors on your lips depending on your pH balance.

      • I got mine today. I got the Deep Sleep Cocoon body lotion, Purlisse 2 minute watermelon peel and Wander Beauty Mile High mascara.

  9. I wish they would do non-yellow gold jewelry, I only wear silver and white gold because the yellow looks terrible against my skin tone.

    • Then they’re excluding the people who those shades DO look good on…

      • But it’s ALWAYS yellow gold, why not rotate so everyone has a chance?

      • … by also excluding the people who those shades DON’T look good on

    • Hi October, I agree with you. They are not excluding anyone if they mix it up. I wonder if the person who disagreed with your suggestion looks good in yellow gold and doesn’t want to share the wealth.😏

    • Why don’t they just offer jewelry in both? Then everyone gets a chance to wear something that looks good on them.

  10. When will we get to see the other items in the box? I’m starting to understand that this time, there are variations? What are they? Thanks!

    • Just search for fff spring 2020 unboxing. The famous people get their boxes first and will post videos on YouTube or nobody’s like me post a pic on Instagram or whatever social media site. I post mine with hashtags because when I’m deciding what boxes to subscribe to, I look at those from real people plus influencers because they might share some insider knowledge and you really want to compare the boxes to make sure they don’t only give the good items to the influencers. I was totally tricked into Luxury Divas! The influencers got nice things but turns out they put the cheap crap in us nobody’s boxes. I can’t even begin to tell you how dissapointing my box was. (I HATE using the word ‘influencer’ but I guess I have to accept the times😭)

      • “Influencer” is the new9-ish) branded name for “Advertiser”.

  11. Are all the options still available? I’m interested in signing up, but I just want to make sure the ones I want will still be available on 2/15.

    • I just spoke with customer service (their customer service line is very helpful, no wait time) and I called at 10 pm on a Friday. They had me give them my email and they emailed me pictures of what options were still available. As of today (2/7) the only items that were no longer available were the blue tie die bowls, the Tarte rainforest hydration boost, and the rose gold radiance booster. I would call in ASAP tomorrow to customize if your payment has already gone through, the next few days is when customization options start to disappear more quickly!

      • Hi Emma, you’re allowed to customize over the phone BEFORE customization is available for seasonal members or am I misunderstanding?

  12. Do the add-ons come in your box or separate? TY

    • I just get a bunch of small addons totaling no more than $40 usually and last time my fff box came in a huge cardboard box with the addons and large fff box items outside. Just watch some unboxings on YouTube so you can see. Some people spend a fortune on extras!

      • I’m pretty sure, if I remember correctly..
        There is a set amount of items for annual subscribers and there is a set amount for seasoned subscribers so seasonal members will still have the option to pick some of their items. 💜

        • That would explain with this being the first box with different dates for annual and seasonal members why things appeared to sell out so quickly. I always monitor the site and usually you’ll see the really good items start to show as sold out starting the next day but this time it only took a couple hours. I HOPE we’re correct because I convinced my cheap mom to get it for the skincare and will feel so bad if it’s all gone by the 15th!

  13. Anyone notice the prices on items are changing!? I have the light lip therapy in my cart for $34, but now it’s listed as $49 for the one in the marketplace. This is my first FFF box and I feel like it’s a little bit shady

    • Maybe a glitch? I see it on there as $34

    • Add ons and marketplace are two different pages and carts.

  14. I actually kind of like this box…or at least half of it. Enough that it’s worth it.

    For my picks:

    1. The Revive Light and I added on the Elemis (I already have the tote and bowls and love both)
    2. The Murad (I have the Tarte palette and have never used it) but I’m curious what the heck you use the cubes for?
    3. The necklace because I’ve been debating paying $$$ for something very similar since Christmas. For those curious about the Cosmedix Vitamin C – I used it on dark spots and saw no change. I like the idea of it but it should come in a jar with a scoop so you can measure it rather than “add a few shakes.”
    4. Body oil – this category didn’t excite me. I don’t think the Aveda works that well for me and have plenty of towels and hair brushes
    5. Mystery Choice – again, not wowed here either. Hoping the mystery choice it at least something that I will use but happy with the value of my box overall.

    I just upgraded to yearly and spent like $100 on add-ons too – yikes. This could be trouble!

    • Is the mystery choice not just a random item from the other ones on the list? It’s something different? I’m new and don’t know how it works yet.

      • Correct! It’s something other than what they have listed. I have done it twice and been pretty have with my results, first time received a Dr. Brandt full-size primer and the second time received a Tarte Mascara full-sized. It’s been worth the gamble so far for me when I don’t love the choice options!

        • Thank you for your answer! That clarifies things for me!

          • You’re very welcome!

    • The packing cubes are mostly used in a suitcase while traveling. You can put undies in one cube, pants in another, tops in another. It helps separate and organize clothing.

    • The cubes are great for packing!

    • How much was it to add the Elemis? Thanks!

  15. I wasn’t excited about any choices. Then when I went to select most items weren’t available. Seems like they are trying to get rid of inventory with all the repeats.

    • At first I didn’t like the idea of throwbacks
      but notice most did sell out so a lot of us did apparently want them and they were extra choices instead of the usual 4. I chose the Elemis which has to be over a year ago because this is my 4th box and I never saw that product before. The bowls were last month but everyone is going crazy for them (despite being made in China where they put lead in the glaze😱) and I never saw the 111SKIN product either. I got last spring’s editor box then summer began my full year. The shower speaker is kind of a repeat because I got the pink one in the winter box and same as the s/p grinder. Don’t get me started on the robes! At least they repeated skincare which runs out.

    • FFF is so overrated. I still can’t understand why the fan fare over basic goods. You can find it all on Ruelala, Marshalls or Homegoods. Sorry for being a Debbie downer, but not sorry lol

      • I have been subscribed to FFF for 5+ years.

        Here’s why: the skincare is almost always worth the cost of the box. Could I go to Marshalls and find Elemis or Tarte skincare slightly discounted? Yes. But do I want to do that? No.

        Each item works out to $5 and that price includes shipping. It’s actually a great value.

        8-9 items are delivered to me each quarter. What I won’t use is included in care packages that my husband and I send. (We sent 200 care packages last year.)

        Plus the box is mostly customizable as I’m an annual subscriber. I don’t need a salt & pepper grinder but most likely I will like one of the other choices.

        • This is why I’m still a member. When you do the math, it’s pretty hard to beat the value. As long there are one or two products you will use and enjoy it’s worth it. And I’ve always found I end up liking more than one or two things. If I don’t, well my sister, friends and coworkers are happy to take things off my hands.

      • I agree, Ruby

    • Thank you for your answer. I suspect that probably happens a lot and, of course, it’s after you have already paid for the box.

  16. I will most likely get crapI don’t want. refuse to pay for the year subscription. But I am choosing the sweater and contour pallet.

  17. For the first time since joining many years ago, there’s not one item that I’m excited about getting this time. 🙁 With so many selections you’d think it would be easier to find something good. A few of the choices were already gone at 20 minutes after opening. I already have to many of these items. I hope they never do this throwback crap again.

    • I’m actually fine with the throwback idea because it gives you more choices. If they didn’t do that, we would be stuck choosing between the few new items which I wasn’t excited about. Without the extra Throwback choices, I honestly would have skipped this box. I just hope the skincare is not expired…

  18. Can you switch your selections anytime before your box ships?

    • Until the 5th. I usually change mine multiple times daily lol

  19. I previously received the salt and pepper grinde, as a choose for me item. I didnt need it but my cat is a cat nip fiend. He eats it straight. Tears through anything to get his kitty crack.
    I’ve always worried that the stems would do fs damage to his tummy so I spend forever picking the dangerous bits out.
    I put his catnip in the pepper grinder and hooray! My fur boy has fine ground tummy safe catnip.
    I’m pretty sure he’ll sort out how to get the top off himself haha

    • Great repurpose! Kisses to your boy! We have a lot of fur children!

  20. I have 1 thing from each category. It already feels like I have received this box. :/

  21. I went with:
    – Tote (I had a really hard time choosing between the bowls and the tote last time these were offered, so I’m pretty stoked!)
    – Umbrella. This was a very meh choice IMO. I don’t really love any of the items.
    – Necklace. Very cute, very excited.
    – Brush. I’ve been thinking of getting a new one! The other options didn’t super excite me anyway.
    – Bluetooth Speaker. Again, very meh.

    This is the last box of my year. I’m not sure I’m going to renew. When an item is a hit, it’s a HIT, but there are so many options that are just kinda. “Whatever, I’ll take this I guess.”

    • Beware of Fabfitfun jewelry. I am almost always disappointed. It always looks pretty in the picture and then I get it and it feels like a $5 piece of jewelry that I might buy for a child. Just throwing that out there.

      • This is so true. They offer really nice looking jewelry, but after a couple wears, it tarnishes.

        • Mine hasn’t tarnished at all, but it’s definitely cheap. I like their jewelry for casual summer days, because it’s always cute, but definitely nothing I would pay for. I still wear the notorious howlite necklace and it looks just as it did when I got it. I just store it in the original container it came in. Looks cute with jeans and a T-shirt but not something I’d wear to a royal wedding.

          • I have the opal necklace from a year ago and love it but haven’t worn it enough for it to tarnish. I will never understand why gold is ever plated over silver instead of brass. You’re safe if it’s brass because you won’t see where it rubs off.

    • The tote is AWESOME. It’s one of my FFFall-time faves.

  22. I went with:
    Option 1: The rug, it’ll look perfect in my black and white bathroom.
    Option 2: Murad
    Option 3: Weighted mask and added on the necklace (should make a lovely gift)
    Option 4: Body Oil
    Option 5: currently the Skindinavia, but may switch to the mystery item… I wasn’t wowed with this category

    • What are the dimensions of the rug?

      • It is 21″ by 34″

  23. Is everyone getting the Purlisse watermelon and straws that are in the picture of one of the box variations?

    • I hope because I want those two things badly! After an ipsy sample, I bought 4 tubes of the Purlisse peel on sale because it’s just amazing. That brand is fantastic. I also have been in need of straws but can’t find any I feel are worth spending money on. Stainless steel will taste like metal, glass is too fragile and I worry that silicone will taste like silicone so I’d be very happy to get free ones to try out.
      To answer your question, I’m not even going to tell you what I’m guessing because I don’t know for sure.

  24. does anyone know what are the items everyone gets?? And will they be 8 or 9?

    • It is my understanding there are no “everybody gets” items this time. There will be 3 FFF picks items (like the soap/hand masks in winter) this time instead. Some of the options are Purlisse watermelon mask, Avene water spray, winky lux lip balm, silicone straws, some Wish mask, maybe a Wandwr mascara, and a few other things I can’t remember at the moment. They haven’t officially released those yet.

      • If that’s true, I’m even more glad I skipped!
