The Price

Seasonal

FabFitFun costs $49.99 a month, and it arrives seasonally. If it’s your first time ordering a box, you will always receive the Editor’s Box which is filled with (mostly) the same 9 goodies that everyone else would receive. Canadian, this works out to just over $65.00/period.

Annual

If you sign up for the annual subscription you’ll pay $179.99* upfront for a full year of boxes. You will not be charged for your subscription again until the end of your annual term. Your subscription automatically renews each year unless you decide to cancel before being billed.  

Purchasing an annual account will make you a Select member*. Each season, we will email you before your order ships and allow you to personalize certain items in the box such as what color of a certain item you’d like to receive based on the options we give.

The Value

The box always comes with different items that are priced at over $200.00 for each box. Believe me when I say, this is true. The editors box came with 9 items, ranging in price from $13.00 to $60.00. Maybe its just me, but paying $60 for a box that is valued at over $200 is something I am definitely okay with.

The Products

In the Spring FabFitFun box, the product booklet included a note from the editor, information about the products, brand spotlights, tips & tricks and suggestions on how to use the products. Each quarter when the seasonal boxes are released they partner with a different charity and they partnered with More Than Me for the Spring box.

Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish Set in Blue Orchid/Like a Virgin – Value $19

These beautiful hues are springtime in a bottle. Whether you receive “Blue Orchid” or “Shape of My Heart” alongside “Like a Virgin” you’re sure to nail it this season. 

I usually don’t like receiving nail polish in subscription boxes, I have noticed its a way to fill a box with a cheap brand of polish and not-so-attractive colours. I didn’t feel that way this time with these beautiful spring colours from Deborah Lippmann. I have been hunting down a pretty blue colour and you can never go wrong with a nice nude polish. I was definitely satisfied with this nail polish!

Gypsy05 Roundie – Value $50

Whether you are headed to a picnic, the beach, or a springtime concert, get around town with the perfect roundie. It will be your picnic go-to this season. 

This was one of the customizable items from FabFitFun if you hold an annual membership (we were able to choose the colour/pattern we wanted for this roundie). I love that members are able to choose- this makes me feel much more involved in the selection process. I also love this roundie- how cute and multi-functional is something that you can use as a towel, for a picnic, even to wrap around yourself at the beach?

Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator – Value $79

Reveal radiant and renewed skin! This formula contains aluminum oxide crystals, lactic acid, and smoothing botanicals to polish away dead cells and leave you with bright, smooth, healthy-looking skin. 

I was REALLY impressed with this exfoliator- especially the fact that it costs $79.99 (more than what you paid for this box alone!) It’s also never too late to start using anti-aging products (especially now that I’m creeping up my mid-twenties) so I always appreciate a product like this.

MILLY Zip Pouch – Value $45

Spring break means that travelling with wet bikinis is inevitable. Keep your suits safe and away from your other valuables with this water-resistant bag. 

When I saw the value for this pouch I was taken aback- until I realized that you can use this pouch to carry wet swim suits while on the beach or on vacation- how genius is that!? Especially when you carry dry clothes with you and don’t want them to get wet!

Karuna Hydrating+ Face Mask Set – Value $28

Dry, dehydrated skin is no match for this deep-conditioning sheet mask. Made out of 100% natural wood-pulp finer, this single-use mask allows pores to fully absorb essential nutrients and nourishing ingredients for ultimate hydration. 

Face masks are ALWAYS a great product to receive in subscription boxes. The package comes equipped with 4 face masks for 4 self-pampering days (I’m thinking mine may just be tonight)!

REALHER Lip Kit in Deep Red – Value $48

Talk about lip service! Made from natural ingredients, this liquid lipstick, plumping lip gloss and lip liner trio are so pretty you’ll be kissing the mirror before you leave the house.

This was another customizable item that subscribers were able to choose what colour they wanted. I went with deep nude (there was also neutral pink or deep red), but vibrant colours for lips aren’t really my thing so this suited me great! This is basically like receiving a Kylie Lip Kit in the mail but almost better because this lip kit is made with shea butter and jojoba seed oil!

Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray – Value $20

Does your hair need some extra love? This ultra-lightweight spray is fortified with a unique blend of rose hip, organ, and coconut oils to improve hair’s softness, strength and moisture levels, while acting as a barrier against heat. 

I would never say no to receiving a great conditioning product in subscription boxes for my hair- especially in the dry winter months that have just passed.

Emerald Duv “Joshua Tree” Cage Bracelet Retail: $80

We’re obsessed with this cage bracelet. Inspired by the vibrant and distinctive nature of the West Coast, this handcrafted piece will add an effortless flair to your timeless look.

This was another customizable item that subscribers were also to choose (the other was a LUV AJ Diamond Kite Crawler Earring Set). I’m not an earring person but I do like wearing the occasional bracelet, and I love this bracelet considering it can go with so many different outfit styles!

Final Thoughts

What an amazing Spring FabFitFun box!! All full-sized items with a huge variety of purposes. I loved that there was a product for hair, skin, makeup, clothing, lifestyle, nails, fashion, etc. I also loved that each of these items came from a company started by women- Girl Power! The value is approximately $369.00 which WELL surpasses what you are paying for the cost of one box.

Score: 8.5/10

While I did love this box and it certainly surpassed my expectations, I want to see FabFitFun do something out of its comfort zone and include some products that users would never expect, but would still find totally useful! However, this was still a kick-ass box and included a product to satisfy my every beauty need!
