Let’s get right to the point: YES.
… wait- before you go, you might want to know why!
Hear me out…
Yes, it is worth it to subscribe to FabFitFun and take advantage of all the great promos and offers they provide. Yes, it is worth the cost of the subscription. You really do get custom curated boxes based on your preference profile and the items really are full size. Each season you get a guide along with the box where you are provided more information about the products you received -values list included. There are also sales and promos exclusive to members that provide insane discounts and deals.
Great way to try name brand products for less.
Amazing deals throughout the year on hundreds of great products and services. Think: Hello Fresh and exclusive access to their online community.
You get what you pay for and then some. Many of the boxes are valued 5-6x the amount that you pay out of pocket. These aren’t sample sizes or drugstore brands- they are prestige or higher end products- ones you would see on the shelf at Sephora.
There is variety too! Items range from home, kitchen, beauty, fashion and fitness.
If you find a product you love- there’s a good chance you’ll be able to purchase it again at a great discount. I have done this a few times and am always pleased.
The box is curated for you and by you- if you choose. When you sign up for the entire year there is an option to receive an email that offers you the ability to hand select a few items for the next box. I love this option because to be honest- I am a control freak and I don’t love surprises. I really do like to know what I am getting. As soon as the box ships- you can log in and check out what’s inside. Yes, I do this!
Something new every 3 months- The items are always on trend and seasonally appropriate.
Seasonal Edit Sales Every few months there are sales on products from previous boxes. It’s a great time to stock up on something you loved at a discount or try something you may not have received in your box. I also shop the sales with others in mind and grab future gifting items.
Add On Options The Add On items are discounted products that you can get shipped along with your upcoming seasonal box. This option is very similar to the Edit Sale but they just get sent along with the box instead of a separate shipment.
It may be pricy compared to other mail in subscription boxes. It’s roughly $17 a month. If you pay upfront its about $179 in one lump sum payment. Always look for a promo code or promotion before you sign up. There is ALWAYS some percentage or dollar amount available to make your box cheaper.
If you miss the customization period- there’s no way to make changes to your box. About a month before your box ships, there is an opportunity to hand select some of the products you will receive. You can chose to forgo this option and products will be picked at random on your behalf. I have a good friend who seems to miss it almost every time. There has been a few times where she wishes she had gotten something other than what she received. I haven’t personally had this issue because I watch my email inbox entirely too closely. It does happen so it’s important to not miss those emails.
Some of my favorite products I have received:
Murad® Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream: $82
Ouai Leave In Condition: $26
South Seas Self Tanner: $22
Design.ME Hair Puff.ME Volumizing Powder: $18
*These are just the products I have purchased more than once. The list goes on- there aren’t many products that I have received that I didn’t like. In some cases, I have gifted items to family and friends due to scent. I am very sensitive to fragrances. I also tend to gift lotions- I just always seem to have so many on hand.
So, is it worth the hype: yes, absolutely. This is by no means a sponsored post but I will say- even if it were, my review would be the same. There’s something magical about getting mail in the days of instant gratification. I love looking forward to what they have next.
Be sure to follow this brand on Social Media to stay in the know about upcoming promos and box details- they LOVE to give sneak peaks on future boxes.
