FabFitFun Fall 2020 Review

 

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. You’ll also find exclusive coupons for the brands featured in the box.


Let’s see what is inside! (If you aren’t familiar, FabFitFun lets subscribers pick several of their items each season – I’ll show you what I picked for each selection.)

First choice item:

 

Choice 1 – All members get the chance to customize these options in their box.

  • Botkier New York Bond Tote $128.00
  • Botkier New York Trigger Backpack $100.00
  • FOXYBAE 25mm Black Curling Wand with Rose Gold Colored Barrel $99.00
  • Stila Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner + HUGETM Extreme Lash Mascara $45.00
  • Uncommon James Set of 2 Copper Canisters $49.00
  • SACHAJUAN Styling Cream & Finish Cream $65.00
  • Mia Mélange Cotton Basket $60.00

My Pick:

 

Botkier New York Bond Tote – Retail Value $128.00

Height 11.5 in (29 cm)
Length 12 in (30 cm)
Depth 6.5 in (17 cm)
Handle Drop 9 in (23 cm)

I am a sucker for a tote and this one looks downright classic. Admittedly, I would have preferred leather, but I actually already own a leather tote and I can’t argue with how easy this one is to spot clean if need be. Inside there is a large zipper pocket as well as two pouches for your tech or lipsticks. The straps are plenty long so I can toss them over my shoulder and go.

Second choice item:

Choice 2 – All members get the chance to customize these options in their box.

  • Beyond Yoga Hidden Pocket Infinity Scarf $59.95
  • Glossmetics Hair Removal Device $59.95
  • Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta® Pore Perfecting & Refining Serum $65.00
  • SOIA & KYO Woven Scarfigan with Fringe $85.00
  • Volition Beauty Celery Green Cream $55.00
  • Erno Laszlo Pore Cleansing Clay Mask $48.00

My Pick:

 

Volition Beauty Celery Green Cream, 1.7 fl oz – Retail Value $55.00

This was an easy pick for the skincare hoarder inside my brain. I have always found Volition formulas to be nice and soothing, and free of lots of things that cause me redness or irritation. This gel-cream formula is so soothing! It is packed with skin goodies like celery seed, green tea extract, and raspberry fruit extracts that are all super high in antioxidants. You will also find lactic acid (a gentle exfoliant), cucumber, and glycerine inside. This feels a little heavier than I expected, but I don’t mind. It is also nicely cooling, making it very appropriate for the summer sun. It has a light and clean scent and is free of alcohol and essential oils.


Third choice item:

Choice 3 – All members get the chance to customize these options in their box.

  • JENNY BIRD Austin Cuff $135.00
  • JENNY BIRD Leana Pendant $115.00
  • Vitamasques Multivitamin Mask Set $40.00
  • Nectar Sunglasses Blue Light Blocking Glasses in Brown Tortoise $45.00
  • Beauty Bakerie Proof is in the Puddin’ Palette $38.00

My Pick:

 

JENNY BIRD Austin Cuff – Listed Value $135.00

Chains: 5 inches long. Whole piece: 8.5 inches long.

I wear a lot of mixed metals and chains and I thought this might be a fun addition to my collection. This piece is pretty hefty! While that retail value feels a little high, I will say that it feels very well made. If I could change one thing, it would be just a touch of additional length. My wrists are about 6.5 inches and it fit fine enough, but I wish the chains had covered more of my wrist with less extender.


Fourth choice item:

Only Annual Members get to customize these options in their box. Otherwise, FabFitFun will choose the best option for you.

  • Masontops® Glass Water Bottle with Neoprene in Turquoise $35.00
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel $22.00
  • SKIN&CO Roma Truffle Therapy Whipped Cleansing Cream $28.00
  • Feel Beauty Renewed Pumpkin Walnut Facial Cleanser $28.00
  • frank body Original Coffee Scrub $16.95

(Annual subscribers get to pick their item. Seasonal subscribers will be surprised.)

My Pick:

 

Masontops® Glass Water Bottle with Neoprene in Turquoise – Listed Value $35.00 (Buy a pair here for $39.95)

If you were to visit my office, you would see my larger desk is just a laptop surrounded by a collection of skin serums and water bottles. Seriously, half of my life is drinking water and rubbing goo onto my face. I am fine with it! This modified mason jar was an easy choice to add to my water bottle shrine. I liked the cheerful teal color and the fact that the main body of the bottle is glass. The lid makes a very satisfying sound when you open it too, and I found it to be utterly leak-proof. I love that there is a fabric sleeve to collect any outside sweat from my bev of choice, especially since everything is filled with ice this time of year. The listed value seemed a little high since you can snag two of these for just a little more, which is something I will probably find myself doing when my mom or Will end up swiping this one.


Fifth choice item:

 

Only Annual Members get to customize these options in their box. Otherwise, FabFitFun will choose the best option for you.

  • HIP Cutlery Set $14.99
  • NCLA So Rich Cuticle Oil in Horchata $18.00
  • Likwid RxTM Stress Reliever 100% Natural Ayurvedic Hair Oil $75.00
  • 8 Other Reasons Runway Clip Trio $32.00
  • Harper + Ari Exfoliating Sugar Cubes in Juice Cleanse $16.00

(Annual subscribers get to pick their item. Seasonal subscribers will be surprised.)

My Pick:

 

8 Other Reasons Runway Clip Trio – Retail Value $32.00

This was a tough choice for me because normally I would be all over those portable utensils. Now that school is done though, I really only eat lunch at home. I decided that the clips were super cute, and I loved the colors enough to pick them! Even though the only time I really do my hair right now is for Zoom meetings, I feel like they are an easy way to add a little style to my look and they are certainly more polished than my massive default scrunchie.


Now that we’ve gone through all the choice options, all subscribers will get 3 additional items that FabFitFun picks for them.

 

FabFitFun will surprise you with three items from this category.

  • Voesh® New York Pedicure in a Box Duo – Pumpkin Spice $20.00
  • The Laundress New York Crease Release $16.00
  • Spongellé Boxed Flower in Sweet Cedarwood $16.00

I received:

 

Spongellé Boxed Flower in Sweet ‘Cedarwood’ – Retail Value $16.00

Spongellé flowers are my go-to for trips. They save me from having to haul a wet bar soap or a big leaky bottle of shower gel. As luck has it, I have a nice week-long trip to Tennessee planned in the next few weeks, so in my bag this goes! This might be my fave scent yet from this brand! It is woody and sweet, and even a little sexy.


 

  • NatureLab Tokyo Perfect Repair Treatment Masque $16.00
  • Stone Candles Room Spray in Pumpkin Spice $36.00
  • Stone Candles Room Spray in Santal $36.00
  • Hythe Tranquility Sleep Mist $22.00

I received:

 

Stone Candles Room Spray in ‘Santal Noir’, 5 fl oz – Retail Value $36.00 (currently sold out)

I really had my fingers crossed I would avoid the pumpkin spice room spray because I can’t stand pumpkin spice anything. Luck was on my side as I saw inside my box was the sandalwood version of the same spray. Yum! This scent is woody and musky, and totally something I would have in my house. I was a little disappointed because it isn’t that strong of a scent and when I spray a room spray I want to really notice. This is more of a hint of scent but I love it enough to use it either way.


 

  • Beauty Papier Golden Superfood Shower Gel $30.00
  • ZiGi & MARAiS Pouch with Stripe $30.00
  • The Beauty Crop® Glow Milk in Blind Date $19.50

 

ZiGi & MARAiS Pouch with Stripe – Retail Value $30.00

Our final item is a cute little pouch in the shape of sunglasses. Will is always losing his sunglasses case and while he would never reach for this one, I ended up giving my hard case to him to use this instead. The little rose gold stripe is very cute and I am always down for a tassel.


Verdict: This box has a value of $214-$544+ depending on which items you receive. My box totals around $467. I was trying to think of an accurate way to frame this value, when I thought about a time recently in Sephora when I ALMOST bought that Volition Beauty Celery Green Cream. That cream is $55 and this box is $49.99 so it more than covers the box value-wise. Getting a cream that was on my to-buy list for less than its cost along with all these other items? That feels like a lot of value to me! Of course, this can vary heavily on your own shopping preferences and what you selected to go inside your box. But for me the value here is easy to see and even the things I might not end up keeping will make really great gifts which are going to be important to me in the next few months with family birthdays and the holidays closer than I can even fathom. I am very pleased with my FFF box this quarter.

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

Comments (176)

  1. I’ve been a FFF customer since 2014. This is the worst box I’ve ever received! I missed out on customization this quarter and ended up with all the leftover crap! There is not one thing in my box I would have purchased in store! It seems it is getting harder to do customization, either because the dates change, or items are sold out! Very disappointing!

  2. I received my box today and the three items FFF picked for me are the shower gel, Hythe spray, and Laundress spray. Not my preferred choices, I was hoping for the Spongelle, the room spray in santal, I’m relieved I didn’t get the hair conditioner (I don’t use silicones) or the glow milk (I don’t use highlighters).

    • Similarly, three items FFF picked for me are the Hythe spray, Laundress spray, and the glow milk (Like you, I don’t use highlighters but my luck). I really wanted the m room spray in santal too.

      • Got the same and am only excited about the launderers product

    • I got the glow milk, wrinkle spray and Hythe. The glow milk was the one thing I REALLY didn’t want 🙁

      • I got the same 3 things.

  3. I was right about the items FFF chooses. I got the least expensive items of all three all the ones that I didn’t want of course I don’t need any more hair treatment masks so that’s going go in the garbage I have no desire for the beauty crop glow milk in a blind date drops so not impressed it seems like every time even when I was part of them for two years before I took a year’s break I would always get the items that were the least expensive or the worst colours of the bunch I don’t know what it is about it I guess I have the worst luck ever.
    Send the mystery bundle that they gave me for E upping my subscription is all stuff I’m not gonna use I see people have jewellery household items nope I once again get stuff that I will not use for my hair and face

  4. I cancelled my subscription with FFF after the Fall 2019 box after many, many years of enjoyment. It really went down hill BUT the new shipping schedule and Annual vs. Quarterly pick schedule seems fair and easy for them and us. So I re-subbed, I also think the quality of the items is really good. It was so hard to pick from Group 1 this time. I did like it when we picked 5 and 3 qwerty known. I am not happy with the choices that FFF makes for us.They can not make everyone happy and it is $50. They go above and beyond for $50. Some of my most favorite things have come from FFF.

  5. Pretty disappointed in this box. Does anyone else feel like they are getting smaller and smaller? I pay for the customization and all that and i just feel like the box is so small and i got like 5 items. I always loved getting them. I think its time to move on. :/ the box is just so small!!!!

    • No not at all. I always get 8 items. Not sure why you are only getting 5. I think it’s a great deal for $45, especially since we get to choose 3-5 of the items.

    • Wow.. I’ve always gotten 8 items in a huge box and I have loved my boxes so far. I did the annual subscription with a coupon and got like 20% off of that so for me I’m getting more items for less money and I couldn’t go out and purchase those items for that much. Add to that I get to pick 5 of them so I get more of what I want and less “mystery” items plus if I see an additional item I like I can add it for a small price.. win, win in my book.

    • I just cancelled two subscriptions because I think the quality of these boxes has really gone down. The FFF choices are always the cheapest ones and even the picks aren’t worth what they say. I enjoyed getting the boxes but I’ll save the $100+/quarter!

    • I agree. I just opened my box and it is just … bad. The box has been used so many time (I know they’re recycling…) but there was no tissue paper or padding so my items got bumped and battered. To top it off there was a hair attached to the flyer.
      I feel like it’s time to pause this for a while. I haven’t been thrilled with them for a boxes but it seems to happen when you subscribe to box company for more than 2 years.

  6. Darn it I really want those West Elm Indigo Bowla and it doesn’t look like I will get them. So sad!!
    Did everyone else get what they wanted?

    • Keep refreshing as it gets closer to the end of the sale. I saw them pop up a few times so people are dropping them. I was able to grab them yesterday as I wanted a second set. Good luck and I hope you get everything you want!

      • Thank you Cynthia, I actually was able to snag 2 sets last night. Now I am after the Bamboo Cutting Boards… lol!

  7. Bummed that I logged in for my customization and the scarf/cardigan and the copper containers are both sold out. They were my only choices from these categories. Cancelled. I will wait for another box that has items I like.

  8. I’ve just signed up for Fabfitfun a week ago and just have read some comments which are leaving me concerned about add ons being charged when you didn’t order them. I’m wondering now if I should cancel my subscription.

    • I’ve never been charged for add ons if I didn’t order them.

    • I just happened to double check my add ons. It wasn’t the $200-ish I expected-it was $3,000!!!!! Total shock. Things I would Never have clicked on.
      Just be cautious.

      • Thanks ladies! I don’t ever really do add ons with any boxes I’ve subscribed to before so hopefully it won’t be an issue.

    • My only advice is to take a screen shot of what you are purchasing before the sale ends. That way if you see that you are being charged more, you can prove what was in your cart. I have never had that problem.

  9. I am so indecisive I changed my mind a few times!!
    I ended up with the canisters and then the backpack for $15, the scarfigan, and the necklace.
    I had the backpack as my primary, and then when I couldn’t add the canisters I changed my primary to them and then added the backpack.
    I am trying to figure out holiday gifts (yes, already – I am a TYPE A personality and am a pre-planner, yet incredibly afraid of making the wrong decision).
    In the end, I am happy with my add-on, and decisions.

  10. Bummer I really want the hair remover and the scarfigan. The additional items are not available for that category.

    • For the annual selection time, I went back a couple of times and categories where you couldn’t pick extras opened up as other people changed their minds and decided not to get extras, etc. By the end I think I could’ve gotten an extra in every category. So you might keep checking back.

      • FFF Chat said they had closed additional items in Customization #2 for seasonal to keep things from going out of stock as soon.

  11. I didn’t know where to post this question. This is my first box and I’ve been watching to see when I can customize my box and at first I didn’t read the part about it being Pacific time so that was my fault. But my little customization countdown clock on their website keeps changing!! It’s changed a few times and now it’s saying that I have another day and 2 hours to wait. So does anyone know anythang about this or if customization date and time has changed and I just didn’t know?!? Thanks in advance

    • I have the same thing happening to me. I hope we don’t miss out on anything.

      • I know that’s what I’m hoping too because I joined because I wanted that backpack and glasses so bad!!! That’s the main reason I joined was to get those 2 and since I’m new I don’t know how this works. Not sure if no matter what everyone gets to choose those items from those 3 categories or if it’s like other stuff that they only have a limited amount and once they hit that limited amount it’s gone so you can’t choose it! I’m hoping someone will give me reassurance that that’s not the case and we can get them no matter what🤞🏼 Fingers crossed for the both of us. Ha

  12. Does anyone know if they are allowing you to purchase additional items from each category and how much? I have 2 items in each category I really want… lol.

    • Annuals could, but some categories ran out of extras. I kept going back, though, and even ones that said at some points you couldn’t buy extras ended up coming back in stock. (Hope this makes sense.). The cost per category differed from i think $15 for the category with the bags to $10 or $7 for the less expensive categories.

      • Thank you Amy. I am patiently waiting for it to open… lol!

  13. People who received shipping info can you see the last 3 items in your box? Sometimes you can

    • It shows I have three mystery choice items. I’m glad they didn’t spoil the other three choices. I like being surprised, but I’m weak so I always check.

      • I hear you — I just googled the ending of the book I’m reading right now (American Dirt) because I decided if the little boy in the book dies, I couldn’t handle it and wouldn’t keep reading it. 🙂

    • I received the shipping info but unable to see the last 3 items !! I guess I have to wait for the box..

    • Hi I been checking mines Also to see if it shows is not showing the last three items sometimes it does show ones hoping to see some spoilers lol

  14. So excited to see shipping info on my box.

    • Got my shipping info today. Hopefully yours is soon.

    • I just received a email from FFF stating that because of Covid to expect my fall box to be at least one month late and then 7 to 15 days for shipping. Gosh I hope this isn’t the case 😕 has anyone else received this same email and still got a shipping notification?

      • I got the same email, but my box has said preparing to ship for about a week. I’m hoping they’re sending that to everyone to manage expectations. (I kind of don’t care if I get a fall box in mid-September anyway, though.)
        BUT, I did get an email that my Causebox summer intro box (2 I think? Or maybe 3? — the one with the portfolio, not the purse) has shipped!

      • I received that email today.

      • I received that same email yesterday. No shipping info yet

  15. I am so excited to get my box!! It makes waiting horrible!

  16. Please let us know what you get for your last 3 no pick items. Last time all the early boxes got the same thing except the MSA box.

    • I’ve watched a large number of unboxings, and the majority of the boxes had the shower gel, Hythe spray, and Laundress spray.

    • Mine contains the hair thing, pedicure set and glow milk. Annual, UK, survey says I hate haircare and makeup 🤦‍♂️

      • I’m not sure why they have the survey. It’s not used for selecting the FFF picks.

    • Shower gel, laundress, room spray in mantel.

      I received my box today. Happy.

  17. I received notification that my shipping label has been created.

  18. Does anyone want the Glow MILK?

    • The two items I don’t want are the Glow Milk and the hair conditioner.

      • They gave me both of these 🙁

    • The Glow Milk is the one thing I really don’t want. I don’t even know who I could give it too

    • Lol I don’t want the glow milk either, but I would take that over the coffee scrub. That coffee scrub is the thing I literally do not want at all. I have read on here people posting about how it can mess up your shower drains so I wouldn’t even feel good about gifting it.

      • Thanks for mentioning that. I got the scrub in another box but haven’t used it yet.

      • Well, I guess that depends on whether my SIL has been naughty or nice this year. Or my MIL . . . . 😂

      • I got the coffee scrub in a previous box and I love it .. Whatever falls on the floor melts away and it hasnt messed/clogged up the shower drain !!
        The feel on the skin after using the scrub is amazing !!

      • Trying to reply to Sindhu – good to know about this coffee scrub! Maybe it’s a different brand people were talking about before and this ones okay. 🙂

  19. I just signed back up but just for a seasonal membership. I then noticed that seasonal members do not get to pick items till the 15th. Im really hoping that the bracelet isn’t sold out along with the bags. You would think they would get enough products that they wouldn’t sell out before seasonal gets to pick, but then again they may not. ANYONE KNOW IF THESE ITEMS ARE SOLD OUT the bracelet and the black bag?????please let me know if you happen to know that would be awesome. thank you

    • Emily, you have a very good chance of getting both. The bracelet is more for a smaller wrist which might deter people. I would think the canisters would sell out the fastest. There were no shortages when I chose. Usually if there are, they limit additional choices.

      • Oh ok that makes sense . Thank you very much 😊

    • Emily, as of 5 minutes before the annual window closed, all selections were still available 😉

      • O that’s great Thank you so much for taking the time to respond. 🙂😀

      • So tempted to sign up because most of the items look good. However, I want the tote bag and I can’t guarantee it unless I do annual , which I can’t commit to. Thanks for the info tho!

  20. I signed up and received the summer box and loved it! But when the fall spoilers came out I cancelled. None of the items seemed that great/interesting/unique to me. I hope causebox hits one out of the park for fall and FFF has a box that seems more investing for winter.

    • I agree. Causebox has always been my favorite and I’ve used everything from them. The products seem more wide spread. I wonder with FFF where the “fit” fits in. A water bottle for workout?

  21. I signed up for the annual membership to guarantee the backpack and get a stash of presents. Was a little upset when the day after I reactivated to annual, there was a coupon for extras. Ah well! Super excited about his box. Items that don’t work for me go to my teenage nieces. I did add on the canisters. Can’t wait to get my box!

    • if you complain to them within 24-48 hours, they’ll give it to you, usually

  22. I was able to add an extra FFF box; but was wondering if it’s worth it? Could they contain the coveted/sold out choices or only leftovers that nobody wants?
    Would really appreciate some input if you have bought some before.
    This is my very first FF extra box in add ons, just took the plunge for annual.

    • Probably. All the left overs that noone wants is what the seasonal members will be stuck with too.

    • I’ve ordered a few of those extra mystery boxes in the sales for $40. They are a great way to get extras and gifts for a good price and I’ve always gotten popular items and very few repeats when I’ve bought multiple boxes.

  23. Hello ladies

    Has anyone tried the Soroci Organic Rice Soothing Skin Toner or the huangjisoo Green Caviar Comfort Balancing Facial Toner

    From the summer box I got the Terre Mere toner & I love it, didn’t realize I would enjoy a toner so much.

    • I haven’t tried the Soroci Rice toner but I have tried other Soroci products like the softener and essence both of which were excellent for my skin (mainly normal with oily T zone in summer but my cheeks are not dry). I find their products very light weight and moisturizing enough for me. Also they are not heavily scented. I hope this helps!

  24. If we take out “superfood,” we have “golden shower” gel. Hmmm.

    • LMAO

    • Hmm. Well, I could use something interesting while I bathe.

    • Lol…too funny!

    • You win the internet today, Melissa!

  25. This says you will be able to customize as soon as you order but that is incorrect. I signed up a few days ago and it is telling me I can’t customize until August 15th. I’m hoping the choices I want aren’t gone by that time.

    • That’s because you’re seasonal. Only select members can make selections right now. I’m sure there’s a schedule of events out there on a few blogs.

      • I just signed up for the annual and i have to wait until Aug. 15.
        San

    • If you signed up for a seasonal membership you have to wait until 15th. Customization for annual members opened on the 2nd (closes today).

    • Some choices are already sold out. As a seasonal member, I find this so wrong and canceled.

      • Hi! Do you know what choices are sold out for seasonals?

    • The same thing happened to me but I was able to get in touch with customer service who manually entered my choices for me. I just can’t add any extra choices until the 15th.

  26. What I want to know is….did anyone get the super pricey massage chair or the $500 bidet toilet seat in the add on sale? Do you think there is wagering in the FFF offices about when those items will sell? Because there would be if I worked there!

    • Lmao that’s funny. I saw those too and was like dang they are reaching.

      • Lol imagine if you put it in your cart to be funny and forgot to remove it 😭

  27. Fab Fit Fun Has always been great for me. I wish there was a general chat board to discuss box problems though. My Rachel Zoe box of style says on tracking it cannot be delivered the way they addressed it. I have emailed three times and they won’t even respond.
    Then I tried Nadine West. My package got lost and took 5 to 6 weeks to get to me and now they are trying to bill me for the entire package and also will not respond to my emails.
    I wish there was a place where you could get help with companies like this.

    • They used to have a whole hugely popular Forum section on this site but it was taken down because of an offensive comment or something. I daresay that was when I stopped coming here much at all.

    • If you’re a FFF member you can join the community to discuss the box, products, sales, life, etc. Lots of people discuss the problems – oos issues, box delays, etc but the community is monitered by FFF. There are also groups not affiliated by FFF on Facebook.

  28. Hi ladies, hopefully this gets seen!

    If anyone of you have the 8 other reasons masks as an add on, don’t spend your money on them

    They are small, not made out of cotton and uncomfortable to breath in

    I bought these last time and regret it

    Plus you can buy a set of two cotton face masks with nose wire and pocket for filter at target for only $4

    Just an fyi

    • Which masks do you get from Target?

      I bought three different colors of the $4 ones and they all have no nose wire or a pocket for a filter. :/

      • Hi Brittany,
        Not sure what happened to my message but I bought them online on the Target website using my red card & got free shipping
        Read the description of the mask because some have the nose wire & pocket but they are all the same price!
        I bought several since we are a family of 5

        I am glad Erica don’t waste your money, seriously when I got them I was like WHY did I spend this money on this…not good quality at all 🙁
        You can buy almost 3 sets of 2 (for six in total for $12) than those masks on FFF

    • Thank you so much! Glad I came to this post, I have them in my cart and the sale ends today. Removing them now!

    • I 100 percent agree! I was so excited when I saw them, but literally could not breathe with them on so they were unusable.

    • Thank you Mireia. I also had them in my cart and was able to remove them and order several from Target instead. So glad I saw your message.

  29. I’m happy–I like the canisters and the scarf w pocket (I had been wanting to get one for travel) and also picked the bracelet, horchata scented oil, and glass water bottle. The bracelet is the only thing I’m iffy about, but I can keep it at my desk and throw it on for zoom meetings so I look a little more put together. Hope everyone gets surprises they like!

  30. what happened to the FIT part??
    I guess I’m in the minority but the huge fluctuations in possible value annoy me

    • There’s a water bottle and a infinity scarf that’s geared towards yoga. I guess they focus more on wellness like mind, body, and spirit. I would group aroma therapy in there as well. There are also some room sprays if FFF picks out those items for you.

    • The huge fluctuations in value used to annoy me a lot and then I realized it doesn’t really mean a whole lot. So many of these companies just pick ridiculous prices for their stuff that is only for sub boxes. Or they do some special collab with a sub box and make the product with inferior quality than what they normally produce, but still state the value is as high as their normally good quality products. That’s what bothers me a ton! Especially now finding out with some skincare items that the ingredients don’t always match what the product might have in it at Sephora, for example.

      • Really? Do you know which products aren’t the same? Isn’t that false advertising?

    • I’m with you. I miss the fit part. I guess all the online exercise videos that I don’t use count as the fit part. IDK.

  31. Goodness, I like a lot of the items. I guess it would be the scarfigan. the necklace, the barrettes, and the water bottle. Also the backpack. Lol!

  32. That tote is laughably teeny, I was debating picking it just to have another cheap black bag but with a mini strap drop and the fact that it won’t even fit a standard folder easily, I’m out.

    I was thinking about the rope basket too, but that’s also miniature and I don’t need one that small.

    Guessing I’ll pass on this box, it’s not horrible but there’s not a thing I need anymore and now not even a thing I want out of category 1.Oh well

    • I’ve seen the basket in a number of FFF review on YT; it’s actually larger than I expected. I’m toying with adding it to my box.

    • Hey Amy! I feel like the measurements don’t really do the size justice because the bottom is flat and roomy. I can easily fit my 15 inch MacBook Pro inside if that helps with a more accurate visual!

  33. Megan, I’m with you on hating pumpkin spice! I’m actually allergic to it & will throw up if I smell it. So no chai for me either as it has the same spices. I used to love fall as a kid being outdoors and now I dread going anywhere during “pumpkin pie” season:( Can’t wait for this year to be over already! Craziest year ever!

    • Pumpkin Spice has run it’s course. It’s like “peach” from the 80’s.I feel like FabFitFun will never be able to please everyone. Last year everyone was screaming that there wasn’t anything “Fall” in the box and proceeded to name all the possible Pumpkin Spice items like candles, melts, sprays, coffee creamers, etc.

      The box is $50. FFF has gone out of their way to have more selections and options, to stream line the shipping times with a more clear calendar.

      Not every box is going to be 100% what you want but the unwanted items(s) can be gifted or donated. (Or thrown in the garbage like the pumpkin spice)

      I have been a subscriber for years and did not renew for 2 quarters but they stepped their game up.

    • Give me ALL the pumpkin! For many, many people, we love it!

  34. Censoring comments?

    • Testing to see if this comment goes through… Think my comments started to get blocked lol.

  35. So the tote won’t fit a laptop? Bummer 🙁

    • I thought that was stupid since it’s the Number One reason I would carry a tote. You can’t add one inch to the length in order to fit most laptops? Really?

    • My thoughts exactly. 🙁

  36. Thank you for giving the length of the cuff. I’d love to have this but it would be huge on me. I guess I’ll pick the necklace.

    • Yes, thank you for the detailed information on the bracelet, Megan. I was going to choose it, but it would be too big. I chose the necklace instead. I already have the palette from a previous box and I gave it to my daughter. Thanks for the great review, you’re doing wonderfully.

  37. Thank you so much for this review for the items that you received. I added the bracelet as an additional item but seeing it now I know it’s going to be too small. I thought it was over 8 inches but I guess they included the extender in that measurement.

  38. Maybe I’ve been subscribing to boxes for too long, but to me this just looks like a bunch of waaaay overpriced (128 dollars for that bag, YEAH RIGHT) – random stuff. I do like the sandalwood room spray, though.

    • Same here. FFB is not a necessary but a spurge if you have money to burn. I could buy some really good items for $50.

  39. Wondering is MSA is not reviewing causebox anymore- the fall FFF is already reviewed but not the summer CB. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    • I know I’m the minority, but my Summer Causebox hasn’t even shipped yet.

      • I’m still waiting too. I ordered in mid-May. Ugh.

      • Thanks so much for saying that. I really felt like I was the only one who’s box didn’t get shipped yet! I ordered 5/16 too and it’ll be my 1st (and at this point last since I’ve cancelled until I get a feel for the product).

      • I finally got a shipping notification today and I’m supposed to have the box on Saturday! I hope yours ships soon too.

    • Would love to see the review, but I’ve had my summer box so long I’ve used up some of the items. I feel badly for people who haven’t gotten them yet — and I probably just jinxed myself for fall!

    • I read this and was like “that can’t be right, they posted the Causebox review like two months ago” but went back and looked and you’re right! It seems like a few people left MSA recently and they’ve been behind but that is definitely a glaring omission since it’s one of the most popular boxes.

      • Hi Caroline! We haven’t received our summer Causebox yet. It seems there are some pretty significant delays. So no worries, it isn’t something we have missed or something we chose to omit. Just waiting for our box! 🙂

    • Hey Lisa! We haven’t actually received our Causebox yet. It is one of my faves so you can bet as soon as it arrives we will review! Thanks for reading <3

  40. What’s in the bundle when you sub for a year? Is it worth it?

    • I was wondering the exact same thing!

    • I’m looking forward to finding out!

    • The bundles for summer subscribers were all over the place — I think they send someone into the warehouse to pick 3 items, pop them in a box, and voila. I got a throw rug, Elemis peptide night recovery cream-oil, and AG fast food. Other people got 3 items that seemed to be from the $10/item pile.

  41. Wow Fall already.

    • yeah… that was a hard headline to write!! For such a weird year, it did go by kind of.. fast? But it has felt like so slow. I have no idea anymore!

  42. Thank you for another great, detailed review, Meghan!

    This will go down as one of the top three favorite boxes for me. I added in all categories.

    • Thank you SheriH! What was your fave item?

      • Goodness, I like a lot of the items. I guess it would be the scarfigan. the necklace, the barrettes, and the water bottle. Also the backpack. Lol!

  43. Thank you for another great review!

    I am at a time sensitive crossroad at the moment…my annual is up for renewal and there is nothing in this box that I really need or want (that’s a first for me and FFF). BUT I really like *several* add-ons. I finally decided to cancel knowing I will probably resub soon (though I’m less and less excited by FFF each season).

    Anyway, tried to cancel and the $45 credit offer popped up! BUT do I really want to start an annual sub skipping the first box, knowing I can’t skip again? Thoughts?

    • This happened to me last year. I reasoned that they usually repeat add on items eventually. I held out on subscribing until a box really grabbed my attention, then I did an annual sub because I really like being able to choose more items.

      • Great thinking! I will hold off, because like you said, the sales have repeats and they’re on practically every month between add ons and edit sales. Def worth waiting for a box I really want. Thanks for your input!

      • I started using the same tactic, and yes eventually everything pops up again. I missed the Christophe Robin scrub last time and it’s in the sale again this time. It helps me not feel compelled to hoard.

  44. Great review!! I just wish they would get these boxes out to us as rapidly as all the influencers..Lol. I understand it from their perspective however- Its wonderful free advertising (with the exception of the cost of the box).

    • We try to get this one as fast as we can so you all can see better info on item choices! FFF is always a mad dash. 🙂

      • We appreciate that! I’m glad I selected the clips!

  45. Thanks for the review! I’m excited to get my box! Hoping for the hair mask too!

    • Hair mask is super nice! I sampled it from maybe a birchbox or ipsy before? Hmm. I like that brand a lot!

  46. Maybe I’m alone, but I prefer a nylon tote to an all leather one. It’s lighter.

    • Agree! Leather is heavy.

  47. Thanks for the great review! ((I think the photo caption under the bracelet is about last season’s sunglasses🤣))

  48. Spongelle is really underrated but they are so nifty. They are my to go for traveling because its soap and the sponge together and when you camping or go somewhere flooded with other tourists, this is a nice way to take off all that grime instead of just hotel soap and questionable hand towels lol.

    • Spongelles shouldn’t be used when camping as they’re non-biodegradable and non-bio soap is really bad for nature!

      • I think when she said camping she meant camping not thrown on ground in wilderness!!

  49. It’s a very nice review. No fomo this time!

  50. I’m so glad we get to see this before our choices are due! Thank you! You chose almost everything I want!

    The tote looks bigger than I thought so that’s great. I really hope I get the spongelle or the hair mask! But I haven’t been lucky with the Fabfitfun picks.

    • You are welcome! The tote is downright roomy! I felt pretty lucky because I managed to avoid anything pumpkin spice. I might be the only person on earth, but I can’t handle that scent! Fingers crossed for you. 🙂
