FabFitFun Spring 2019 Review + Unboxing
Most subscription boxes provide items from a specific category—like clothes, beauty products, coffee, and so on. FabFitFun is one of the few lifestyle subscription boxes for women that curates a beautiful assortment of items, rather than one specific type. They include beauty products, accessories, fitness items, home items, and more.
I subscribed about a year ago and have been loving it. Check out my Spring 2019 unboxing, plus coupons and similar subscription boxes you might like at the bottom.
Shipping + Unboxing
My Spring 2019 FabFitFun box arrived near the end of March. As I’ve mentioned in all my past FabFitFun reviews, I love their boxes. This month’s design was colorful with flower and cactus prints all over it. It was adorable and got me excited to open it. Plus, the boxes are thick and sturdy.
Deux Lux Lemi Backpack
I saw this adorable backpack in their spoilers, and I was ecstatic when I could choose it as a customization feature! There are usually two product choices that all subscribers get access to, but annual subscribers get a couple extra options. The backpack is just as cute as it looks online, and there’s plenty of space inside! It might even fit my laptop.
Retail value: $75
Quay Vivienne Sunglasses in Black
Having spent over $50 on a pair of Quay sunglasses in the past, I was so glad I got these in my box. They’re pretty basic sunglasses but are still a cute addition to my collection.
They’re well made and are the perfect size for my face. Plus, they came with a Quay carrying pouch. I can’t wait to wear these all summer!
Retail value: $60
The2Bandits Athens Necklace
This gorgeous silver necklace is beautiful and simplistic. I love getting new jewelry because I use Rocksbox for almost all my jewelry needs now. Since that one’s a rental subscription box, it’s nice to have some pieces to call my own.
Retail value: $30
Dr. Brandt Skincare Eye De-Puffing Gel
There are a few products from this brand that I’ve tried out before, but this was a new one. It’s not a miracle serum, but it definitely helps with puffy eyes after a rough night!
I was surprised by the orange tint, thankfully it didn’t turn my face orange.
Retail value: $24
Daily Concepts Daily Detox Brush
This detox brush is a nice addition to the box. It’s intended to scrub away dryness and exfoliate the skin. It’s pretty rough, but does a great job. I wouldn’t use this more than once a week.
Retail value: $18
Manna Kadar Champagne Charcoal Body Scrub
Using an exfoliating body scrub even just once per week can make all the difference for your skin! This one is lovely. It exfoliates my skin amazingly, leaving it feeling soft and smooth. Not to mention the fact that it smells incredible.
Retail value: $34.95
QUAI Leave-In Conditioner
This brand seems to be in every beauty subscription box I get. I’d tried this leave-in conditioner before and liked it, but it’s nice to finally have a full-size from them rather than small samples. This should last a long time!
Retail value: $26
Total Spring FabFitFun Box Value: $287.95!
FabFitFun has a couple of savings opportunities to take advantage of. For one, they offer a starter box for new subscribers who want to try out a smaller, cheaper box before committing to the seasonal subscription. This costs just $19.99 per box and comes with 3–4 items from previous FabFitFun boxes.
In addition, there are coupons for the regular seasonal subscriptions if you want to dive right in. Currently, the code “FUTURE” will grant $10 off your first box!
Similar Subscription Boxes
A new discovery I came across a few months ago is Causebox. This subscription box is extremely similar to FabFitFun, the only real difference is that the products in Causebox all have some type of positive impact on the world.
Otherwise, it costs the same and provides the same number of full-size products for women. Since I love FabFitFun, you already know I clicked Subscribe in a matter of minutes. Check out my Causebox reviews!
If you’re keen on full-size products for a great value, Boxycharm is another great choice. These boxes contain 4–5 makeup products with the occasional skincare item, all for $21 per month! They have plenty of name brands, and my previous Boxycharm boxes have always been worth over $100. The only downfall with this box is you don’t get a larger variety of women’s lifestyle items like with FabFitFun, but this is great for makeup lovers!
Julep isn’t too widely known these days, but I still enjoy this subscription box. They provide 2–4 full-size products from their brand for $24.99 per month. Although this isn’t as good of a value, you never have to worry about the quality!
