March FabFitFun Box

FabFitFun is the newest celebrity endorsed subscription box to hit the market. This box is curated by Giuliana Rancic a co-host of E! News.  I'll be honest I've heard her name before but I don't know anything about her so her curating didn't influence my decision to purchase but as you can see she puts together a great box!
This box is not a monthly subscription but quarterly meaning 4 times a year. They say that each season you will receive hand-picked, high-end and exclusive gifts including beauty, fashion and fitness products. The items are full sized and premium with a value of $100 or more. As an added bonus randomly selected members will receive super-fab bonus gifts.  The cost of this box is $49.99 billed every 4 months.

This subscription in available in the US only. 

The good:

The Products: You will receive mostly full size and premium products in each box and not just beauty items.

The Brands: They send well known premium brands

Quarterly: This is nice because monthly boxes can cause overload as I'm discovering

The not so good:

Price: The price is a sticker shock, but it's only 4 times a year which would break down to $16.67 a month.

This is the box everything was in. 

This is what it looked like inside. Everything was neatly arranged and had it's own spot. I couldn't believe my eyes looking at all this awesome stuff. 

Here is everything out of the package.

Contents of the inaugural FabFitFun box with approximate retail price/value:

FULL SIZE Moroccan Oil. Value = $43.00

FULL SIZE Zoya Nail Polish in FabFitFun Fuchsia. Value = $8.00

.11 oz. Jouer Lip Gloss in Glisten, sheer sparking pink. Value = $5.00

Think Thin Bar in creamy peanut butter. Value = $1.99

JewelMint Astro Glam necklace. Value = $29.99

FULL SIZE Butter London nail polish in Yummy Mummy. Value = $15.00

FULL SIZE Go Smile on the go Pen. Value = $22.00

FULL SIZE Josie Moran Lip and Cheek Stain in Waltz, soft berry rose. Value = $19.00

The total value of the first FabFitFun box is $143.98.  That's a great value and I think they are some great products in here. The only thing I'm not super excited about is the Jewelmint necklace and only because I had received that necklace once before in a mystery box and traded it with someone for something else. Also I have the Josie Moran product from another box and I still haven't used it - although I like the color. I do still have the matching earrings though so maybe I'll look at again since the universe seems to thing I should have this necklace. I have been using Argan Oil on my hair and really like the way it feels. I've heard great things about Moroccan oil so I'm anxious to give this a try. I think the go smile pen is super cool. I've always wanted to give those items a try but never wanted to pay for it since I'm skeptical about it working. The nail polishes are super pretty and I love that they included one bright one and one subdued one. The lip gloss looks like it's a nice light color and I don't mind the small size so then I can slip it in my pocket. 

Verdict: I thought this box was super great. Since it's quarterly I'm guessing the box will out around June and you can believe I'm getting that one!


  1. ur box is SO much better than mine :( I rec'd 3 ugly jewelry pieces, no Go Smile, no Josie, no Butter. I don't like Jewel Mint and I rec'd 3, one is even a ring that doesn't fit! Rec'd a tiny sample brow product that is too dark for me!

    1. Oh no! I wondered if people were getting different boxes. They shouldn't be sending rings or anything without knowing your size. I would contact them. $50 is a lot of money to be unhappy.

    2. Just read tons of complaints on their FB page, I'm not alone. They say to email them and I did, we shall see if they make it right or not.

    3. wow, I can't believe there was such a difference between boxes. Not a good start!
