FabFitFun is a quarterly subscription box from FabFitFun.com. Each season they send you a box of items in categories like beauty, fashion, and fitness. It's our readers' top pick for the Best Fitness Subscription Boxes of 2020!
Each season, FabFitFun features a different design for their box. Starting with the Fall 2020 delivery, you may have noticed some changes—that's because FabFitFun switched over to 100% recycled kraft boxes and is working with artists to feature designs with less ink in their commitment to sustainability.

FabFitFun Spring 2021 Review
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.
- Alice + Olivia Daisy Print Duffle Bag
- Perricone MD Essential FX Acyl-Glutathione Moisturizer
- Monroe Sunburst Solerose Watch
- Milk Watermelon Brightening Mask and Serum
- Jenni Kayne Water Hyacinth Tray with Handles
- Shoshanna Umbrella
- CALPAK Tutti Fruity Packing Cubes
- Short Stories LED Indoor Planter with Basil Seeds
This was a tough choice because I was really, really torn between the bag, the Milk set, or the Perricone MD product. I ended up grabbing the bag because I LOVE daisies and I am always on the lookout for a good weekender-sized bag. Even though travel isn't a thing for me right now, I use them to haul art supplies to and from studio sessions. The main color of this bag is black, meaning it shouldn't show dirt (or paint!) very easily. This is a great size for lots of clothing or supplies and the fabric is a heavier canvas texture that should hold up nicely over time. It arrived with a black adjustable shoulder strap and a very cute zipper pull.
Second choice item:
Choice 2 – All members get the chance to customize these options in their box.
- MAC Lipstick Duo
- Billion Dollar Brows 6pc Pro Brush Essentials Kit
- Josie Maran Pure Argan Oil
- Splendid Crystal Pink Faux Fur Slippers
- Gaiam Studio Select Ultimate Core Toning Kit
- Steel Mill Co To-Do Planning Bundle
- Our Place Layered Lunch Box with Clips and Utensils
MAC Lipstick Duo: Powder Kiss Lipstick in 'Werk Werk Werk' and 'Reverence'
This was ANOTHER hard choice! I really love using argan oil for facial massages and those pink fluffy slippers were another tempting option. I ended up selecting the MAC lipsticks, though, because I am a lipstick collector (well, hoarder) and I really hope to be wearing a lot more lipstick in 2021 than 2020! The formulas that arrived were both from MAC's Powder Kiss line, and I am kind of obsessed. These give you the matte finish without any dryness! The finish does indeed feel like a super lightweight powdery slip. You can apply heavily for a true matte look or apply in the center of your lips and feather out for a very trendy fade.
'Reverence' is a warmer leaning ballet pink shade that I thought would be too light but the more I wore it the more I loved it. It is a great shade for spring!
'Werk Werk Werk' is a super glam cool red that I loved immediately!
Third choice item:
Choice 3 – All members get the chance to customize these options in their box.
- Gloss Moderne Clean Luxury Hair Masque
- Verso Botanicals Super Eye Serum
- Joy Dravecky Chloe Ring
- Bloomingville Woven Seagrass Coasters
- Alice + Olivia Reversible Bucket Hat
Alright, I know I might get a lot of flack in the comments for this choice, but I have no regrets. A little background: growing up, we never had a ton of extra $$$ for all the super trendy '90s clothing and accessories. We had to wear khakis and polos to school and the budget leftover for more "expressive" items was small. This is actually a huge reason why I am LOVING the recent resurgence of '90s trends because now I can wear what I want, I make my own money, and I can afford all of the '90s sweatshirts and bike shorts I want. So hate on my new hat if you must, but I love it and it matches my new bag. I also think it will totally bring a very specific flavor to 2021 fishing trips and hikes.
This hat is reversible too, going from the black daisy print to pure white. But, why would I ever do that? I also found that it fit my larger head just fine (mine measured right around 23 inches in diameter).
Sorry, not sorry, I feel great about this choice. Alexa, play Jamiroquai!
Fourth choice item:
- Sorbus Makeup Organizer
- AHAVA Refreshing Facial Cleansing Gel
- Erno Laszlo Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar
- Lark and Ives Hair Scarf Bundle
- Grown Alchemist Body Cream
- ELEMIS Papaya Enzyme Peel
(Annual subscribers get to pick their item. Seasonal subscribers will be surprised.)
I really leaned into the daisy theme with this box. What is more "spring" than a ditzy daisy? I also kind of needed something to help organize the chaos on top of my bedroom vanity. I may own way too many lipsticks (and up another 2 from this box!) but I still have favorites I wear more often than others and a smaller organizer like this is handy and also cute. I can fit about 10 lipsticks and glosses on the right side and the left section is open for pots or other makeup items I want to keep close by. And I am really fond of those daisies on the blue background.
Fifth choice item:
Only Annual Members get to customize these options in their box. Otherwise, FabFitFun will choose the best option for you.
- PUR Iconic Glow Illuminating Face and Body Dry Oil
- Camp Collection Dip Dye Market Tote
- Cocofloss Tropical Trio
- Summer and Rose Rose Tweezer and Pouch
- H Halston Aloe Socks
(Annual subscribers get to pick their item. Seasonal subscribers will be surprised.)
With summer on the way (please hurry!!) my thoughts go to glowing skin. Now, I want to be clear that although this bottle says "Face and Body" I don't think this is ideal for most faces. Why? The number one ingredient is Ethylhexyl palmitate which is pretty comedogenic. That aside, I actually loved this on my arms, legs, and collarbones. It adds a sunlit glow and slight shimmer that looks great! The formula also absorbs quickly and has a soft scent that smells maybe a little like neroli.
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.
- EACH Jewels Flower Hair Clips 2 pack
- Human and Kind Hand Scrub Elderflower Raspberry
- Earth Harbor Marina Brightening Ampoule
YES! My daisy theme is complete! I was hoping for the clips. They are so much cuter in person than in images because they actually have an opalescent shine to the petals that is hard to capture in photos. I like little clips like this because they add a little flavor and fun to my otherwise messy hair. They are also great for clipping back unruly frizz.
- Skin Forum Suns Out Pouts Out Lip Mask
- Pink Sky Cactus Cup with Straw
- Cali Cosmetics Body Wash
Cali Cosmetics Body Wash in 'Peach Champagne'
I don't normally like super fruity scents but the fragrance of this body wash is soft and peachy in a way I enjoy. As far as performance, it worked as a body wash should. It created a nice lather, left my skin feeling clean and soft, and smelled great in my shower. Not much more I can ask for!
- Saie Beauty Makeup Rounds 3 Pack
- Nails Inc Nail Polish
Nails Inc makes a great polish. Even on my problematic nails, it lasts a few days without chipping. Since I can barely get some polishes to last more than 48 hours, that is a pretty good run for my oily nails. The color I received was a totally girly pale pink that had great opaque coverage in two coats. It also felt like it dried really fast.
Kind of close to my skin tone, but the whole look is very clean and more than a little chic.
Verdict: This might be my favorite FabFitFun box I have received yet. The vibes were all about daisies, the '90s, and spring – three of my favorite things. I absolutely love my bag and bucket hat set. These are both items I might not have treated myself to if I was in a store, but I certainly would have wanted to! So getting them as options in this box felt so fun. The daisy makeup organizer and hair clips really put the floral feels over the top in the best way. MAC makes my favorite lipsticks so getting not one, but TWO of them was also a massive win. Even my FFF choices ended up being total winners for me. This box felt like it had tremendous value and the quality of the items inside was also great. While I gifted a lot of items from my Winter 2020 box as Christmas presents, I think this box is all about me!! I am totally ready for a flower power spring and summer.
