Okay, I’m not going to lie.
I was pretty damn excited when I finally pulled the trigger to buy a FabFitFun box because I have been eyeing it for years. I kid you not – legit for years.
I signed up on October 2nd after seeing a promo for 50% and my box arrived just before 2 weeks – not bad!
During the registration process, you create a profile based on your sizes, grooming habits and interests/preferences. If I recall correctly, I marked the following as high interests – skincare, fitness, aromatherapy, home decor, and a few other things. I rated hair care to the lowest.
So what did I get?
Each box comes with a FabFitFun “magazine” which basically lists what items were available this season and their retail cost, some beauty and lifestyle tips and a featured article. They also came with some coupons for food prep deliveries and discounted coupon to share with friends and family.
In this box, I received…
- Anthropologie Travel Yoga Mat – $50 USD
- Nassifmd Detox Pads – $45 USD
- Better Skin Co Lava Magik – $32 USD
- Afterspa Hair Towel Wrap – $18 USD
- Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Roller Ball – $29 USD
- Aveda Damage Ready Daily Hair – $30 USD
- Harper and Ari Exfolicating Sugar Cubes in Juice Cleanse – $16 USD
- Human and Kind Body Souffle – $18 USD
Out of the 8 full size items, I didn’t care for 2 which was the hair towel wrap and Aveda damage ready hair treatment. I guess that would make some decent stocking stuffers or office secret santa gift.
The total retail price for the box comes out to $238 USD or $315 CAD. Since I got the box half off, it was worth it. However, if I were to pay full price, my boxes would cost $80 CAD.
I’ve decided to continue to the Winter box to see if I want to continue with this subscription. I do enjoy the idea of getting random premium stuff for a low price but if I’m being honest, some of these things I wouldn’t buy if I saw them in store – even if they were discounted.
For any of those who are current subscribers, how do you feel about your seasonal boxes? Ex subscribes, why did you leave?
