What is FabFitFun?
FabFitFun is a quarterly subscription box that delivers you a selection of 8-10 full-sized, name brand/premium beauty, and lifestyle products. The FabFitFun editors carefully curate each box and pack it with top brands & products from all over the world.
You’ll be able to customize each box, if you choose to, by either selecting a handful of your products beforehand. Alternatively, you can opt-out of choosing your products to keep your box a complete surprise!
How Does FabFitFun work?
Every three months, you’ll receive a box of products worth $200+. The boxes are set to ship 4x per year in March, June, September, and December. What you’ll get can range from full-sized beauty products, clothing, fitness gear, snacks, lifestyle and tech gadgets, and even home decor. You can signup as a seasonal member (pay per box) or as an annual member (pay for the year in advance).
What can I expect in the FabFitFun box?
I’ve gotten everything from water bottles, candles, tapestries, and decorative bowls to hair products, lotions, necklaces, and facial serums in my previous FabFitFun boxes. What you get will be very dependent on how you fill out the questionnaire at the beginning of your membership process. You can expect products related to fitness, healthy living, beauty, fashion, and wellness.
The customer profile survey they make you fill out upon sign up (which is basically a likes/dislikes quiz) is super detailed because they want to make sure they send you stuff you actually like!
Some name brands you can expect (from previous boxes): beautyblender®, Tarte, Living Proof, Amika, Drybar, Vince Camuto, TOMS, AVEDA, west elm, GLAMGLOW, and Kate Spade.
How much does FabFitFun cost?
Each box costs $49.95 but has a retail value of over $200. An annual membership (Select Membership) costs $179.99 for all four boxes. With the annual membership, you save $20 for paying upfront.
In terms of shipping: if you live in the USA, shipping is free. If you live internationally, you’ll have to pay an extra $10 USD in shipping & handling per box.
Annual Membership (Select Member) Details
By signing up for an annual subscription, members save $20 on their year of FabFitFun, meaning they get four boxes (that’s over $1000+ total value) for only $179.99. Not only will you be saving $20 in the long run with the FabFitFun Select Membership, but you will also be getting a few additional perks.
Each season, those with the Annual Membership will be emailed first to customize and personalize certain items in the box that Seasonal Members cannot. As of Summer 2021, FFF membership just got even better: Annual members will now have a fully customizable box, which means you can pick out every single product you want. This allows you to create the full curation that’s 100% you.
Annual Members are also placed in the first billing group, which means they’re generally the first ones to get their boxes shipped. If you want even more control over what you’re getting on a quarterly basis, the FabFitFun Annual Membership is the way to go.
If you’re unsure about committing to a whole year, my recommendation would be to sign up for the seasonal box, try it out, then decide whether or not you want to switch over to an annual membership. You can upgrade at any time from your account. Click here to upgrade now!
When signing up for either membership, you will be charged immediately after selecting a membership type. You’ll receive an email confirmation of your order and be given access to your FabFitFun account right away.
MEMBERS-ONLY PERKS, CUSTOMIZATIONS, ADD-ONS, AND MORE
There are tons of member perks like product customizations, Swap For Credits, member-exclusive offers, FabFitFunTV, members-only sales, access to the FabFitFun shop, free trial boxes for your friends, and access to the FabFitFun community forum.
Swap For Credits
Don’t like the products included in a seasonal box? Take the credit instead and create your own shopping experience with FabFitFun’s Boost My Box, Refills, Add-Ons, Edits, other sales, and even The Shop. Truly, you get to use the credit how you like. Swap for Credit is unlimited for all Members, meaning every subscriber can receive credit for each season if they choose.
Members Only Sales
FabFitFun has a variety of sales, and you’ll be able to take advantage of them as soon as you become a member. Some of these sales include the Add-Ons Sale and the Edit Sale. The Add-Ons Sale basically gives you the opportunity to buy discounted beauty and wellness products that have appeared in previous boxes. If a specific brand is offering exclusive products, then these will make it into the Add-Ons Sale as well. You can expect anywhere from 10% to 70% off retail price on these items.
A few weeks before your FabFitFun box is scheduled to ship, the Add-Ons feature will become available. At this time, you’ll be able to shop for things you want to add to your box when it ships. Fair warning, some Add-Ons are very popular and will sell out so quickly, so mark your calendars and act fast when Add-Ons become available.
FFF’s newest feature includes access to The Shop, for when you want your daily fix of online shopping. The Shop features items from brands you love and know from previous FFF boxes!
Free Starter Boxes
Every season, you get a limited opportunity to send free Starter Boxes to the people you love! You can send a Starter Box to friends or family that haven’t tried FabFitFun yet. All they need to do is pay for shipping (usually $5 USD). Each Starter Box is valued at over $75 and comes with 3-4 full-sized, premium products. From there, your friend can either continue the subscription (they’ll be charged $49.99 USD) or cancel within 21 days of signing up for the Starter Box.
The FabFitFun community
The forum consists of people’s product reviews and posts where they compare their boxes compared to other members. Every so often, there will be complaints of people unhappy with their boxes. This is a good place to hang out if you want to assess what else FabFitFun boxes have to offer (aside from what you received). You’ll also have access to a bunch of articles on beauty and wellness.
The FabFitFun community looks a little something like this:
Exclusively for Select Members, FabFitFun TV is a free streaming service that features tons of videos made up primarily of workout videos and cooking shows. You’ll get full access to hundreds of workouts and recipes.
You can snag some amazing deals from partnering FabFitFun brands. These are always rotating, so if you see a deal you love, snag it before it’s too late! And if you don’t, the items offered change on a regular basis.
GIFTING A FABFITFUN SUBSCRIPTION
Can’t think of a good gift for that person in your life who has everything? FabFitFun is the perfect gift for your girlfriend, friends, and family members!
Not only is it super effortless on your part (just sign up, no need to pick out items or gift wrap them), the element of surprise of what’s inside is an added bonus. We’ve gifted this to our moms and they just love it each time, regardless of what’s inside.
FABFITFUN: THE BOTTOM LINE
This box is for you if:
- you want full-sized products from a subscription box membership
- you want a variety of lifestyle products in addition to beauty products
- you value quality over quantity of products you receive
- you want to be able to customize what you get in your box
Because the boxes come seasonally, FabFitFun is able to narrow down its products so that they can be used and loved by the majority of subscribers. The boxes are super diverse in their spread of offerings, which is great for getting you to try new products and expanding your horizons in every aspect of your lifestyle. And hey, if you wind up with something you hate or would likely never use, you can always re-gift it or donate it.
