FabFitFun (FFF) is a quarterly subscription box. Each quarter before your box ships, you have the option to add on products at discounted prices. Add-ons can be items from previous boxes beauty products, coffee mugs, blankets, etc. I bought six add-ons and I am reviewing them here.

Add-ons are their own special event for the FFF community and it can be really exciting. They shopping times windows depend on whether you are a seasonal or annual subscriber. Annual subscribers get earlier access.

*For information about the donations that can also be made through add-ons, please see the end of the post.*

The add-ons are shipped with your quarterly box. Everything is packed really well so nothing is damaged in transit.

Here’s a view with my quarterly box with add-ons.

The packing slip shows all of my items – the regular FFF Spring 2019 Box and the six add-ons.

Here’s a view of the six items that I chose to add-on and purchase.

Item 1: Love Beauty & Planet – Coconut Oil & Ylang Ylang Energizing Deodorant – Cost: FREE w/$15.00 purchase (Retail price $7.59 on Amazon – https://amzn.to/2JBWb3Y) – This was a promotional item that was provided if you spent at least $15. I love all natural deodorants so I am excited to try this one. It definitely smells amazing.

This product is Vegan and not test on animals.  No aluminum, alcohol, or parabens.

This definitely looks much more like a traditional deodorant.  Made in Canada.

Item 2: Type A Deodorant – Cost $5.00 (Retail price $13.95 on Amazon – https://amzn.to/2JBWR9w) – This was another all natural deodorant that was available to try so I definitely jumped on the chance to get it at a discounted cost.

This product is aluminum free.

Made in the USA.

Item 3: NuMe Classic 32mm Curling Wand in turquoise – Cost $21.00 (Retail price $78.70 on Amazon – https://amzn.to/2JBX7W2) – My teen has been wanting a curling wand so this was a perfect opportunity to buy it.

This one has a large barrel and even though it’s hard to see, it comes with a glove for the wand.

This comes in a thick cardboard cylinder to protect it.

This has a tourmaline-infused ceramic barrel. It has a 7 foot cord length and heats to 410 degrees Fahrenheit. Made in China.

Item 4: double dare – OMG Pulling Gel – Cost $7.00 (Retail price $14.99 on Amazon – https://amzn.to/2UNQm4C) – This is an exfoliating product.

My teens immediately took this product and started using it. Made in Korea.

Item 5: Tazeka Aromatherapy – Headache Helper Rollerball – Cost $11.00 (Retail price $39.50 on TazekaAromatherapy.com -https://www.tazekaaromatherapy.com/products/headache-helper) – These are essential oils in a rollerball formula. I struggle with migraines so I was definitely excited to give this a try.

The box says this has no synthetic dyes, fragrances, parabens, sulfates, synthetic preservatives, or animal by-products. They do not test their products on animals.

This blend smells really nice without being overwhelming.

This product is made in the USA.

Item 6: Nellie’s WOW Stick – Stain Remover Stick – Cost $5.00 (Retail price $10.49 on Amazon – https://amzn.to/2TnGahH) This is a stain remover stick for the laundry and it smells absolutely amazing!

I have not had the opportunity to try this yet but I’m excited to see if it works better than our regular stain remover.

The stick itself is a lot bigger than I thought it would be. I like it that this is Leaping Bunny Certified and made in the USA.

*One other thing that isn’t a physical item is a donation. Each quarter, FFF partners with a different organization to raise funds. This time they were raising funds for the Ian Somerhalder Foundation which supports animals, youth, and the environment.*

FabFitFun has been such an amazing subscription box and I love to their add-ons even more. Now that I know some more of the products and the how to work everything, I am definitely looking forward to the season.  I have been so impressed with this company so far and really feel I’m getting good value for the products.

FabFitFun – Spring 2019 Review

FabFitFun (Fab Fit Fun = FFF) is a quarterly subscription box. You can choose to be a quarterly or annual subscriber. Quarterly cost is $54.99 while an annual cost is roughly $49.99 per quarter. Each subscription allows you to customize certain items in your box (quarterly gets to customize three items while annual gets to customize five).

Per their website, “As a FabFitFun Member, you’ll get a box of fabulous finds in beauty, wellness, fashion, and fitness, hand-picked by the FabFitFun team, delivered once per season. Four times a year, you will be sent a seasonal box! Each box is limited edition and contains $200+ in retail value. Boxes are shipped in March, June, September, and December.”

My particular box & customizations came to a Retail Value of $297.95

I have been so excited waiting on this box! The Spring 2019 box has eight items and I was able to customize three of them (each customization has three or more options to choose from). My picture was a little blurry but I think I was shaking with excitement!

The cover story of the FFF magazine focuses on Venus Williams who has a product in the box. The magazine has 34 pages.

The magazine also has a “What’s in the box” to show all the different customization options and the other three products that everyone will receive.

The have a contest to win a trip just for sharing your box on social media!

You have the ability to purchase “add-ons” every quarter and I will do a separate post for my add-ons. This post is solely focusing on the eight item Spring 2019 box.

Item 1: Everyone was able to customize this option – Deux Lux – Demi Backpack – Retail Value $75 – You could choose between 1) Show Me Your Mumu – Brie Robe valued at $84, 2) this backpack, or 3) Unplug Meditation – Aromatherapy Diffuser valued at $55. https://amzn.to/2HClzVI

We choose the backpack because it will get the most use for my family – My ten year old, my teens, and I can all get use out of it. My ten year old especially loves it because she doesn’t always get to use items out of our boxes since a lot are beauty products.

It will lay flat in a suitcase so it will be wonderful for travel.

This is made of vegan leather which I appreciate and has one small pocket inside. It says to not machine wash but… it’s white and will get thrown in the wash eventually. Not sure how that will turn out but I’m okay with it. Made in China.

Item 2: Everyone was able to customize this option – Quay Australia Sunglasses – Vivienne in “Black/Smoke” – Retail Value $60 – You could choose between 1) Quay Australia Sunglasses – My Girl – Retail Value $55, 2) the sunglasses I chose, 3) Sunnylife – Lovers Picnic Set in “Malibu” – Retail Value $30, or 4) Korres – Wild Rose Vitamin C Brightening Sleeping Facial – Retail Value $48. https://amzn.to/2OkLqSu

I used these sunglasses yesterday and today and am very pleased! I am super sensitive to sunlight and I felt like these did a great job.

The case has an opening that is thick enough to protect the glasses when holding them. The opening stays shut as well which is nice so you don’t have random things falling in the case while it’s in your purse or bag.

These have the highest protection from the sun available at a Category 3.

Item 3: Everyone was able to customize this option – Mystery Item – Valued at $20 or more – We received a “LOVE bracelet” by Maya Brenner. I am not sure of the exact value but deducting all other items, it seems like this is valued at $12.95, not $20+. We are pleased with the item though. You could choose between 1) Giadzy – Copper Plate Measuring Spoons – Retail Value $15, 2) Lavido – Aromatic Body Lotion in “Mandarin, Orange, & Bergamot,” or 3) a mystery item. https://amzn.to/2TquvyT

Since this was my first ever FFF box, I thought I would choose the mystery item and I’m happy I did even though the value is lower than stated. My 13 year old loves it!

It is small and dainty. Still glad I chose this option.

Item 4: Only Annual Subscribers got to customize this option. We received The2Bandits – Athens Necklace – Retail Value $30. The options were 1) this necklace, 2) Ciate London – Extraordinary Translucent Setting Powder – Retail Value $22, or 3) S’ip By S’Well – Water Bottle – Retail Value $19.99.

My 13 year old was so excited. She wanted all three of these options but was happy with the necklace since she also got the bracelet. The instructions say to not get the necklace wet so I doubt it’s the greatest quality but it is still cute. Made in China.

Item 5: Only Annual Subscribers got to customize this option. We received the Tula – Purifying Face Cleanser – Retail Value $28. The options were 1) this cleanser, 2) Daily Concepts – Daily Detox Brush – Retail Value $18, or 3) Eleven By Venus – Jump Rope – Retail Value $15. https://amzn.to/2FnUh1P

This is a probiotic gel cleanser. I have truly loved this product! It smells great and I love the way it foams up. It does a great job of cleaning my skin. Made in USA.

Item 6: All subscribers received this item – Ouai – Leave In Conditioner – Retail Value $26 – This product seems very thick but I love the way it sprays out. It is supposed to smooth, soften, and detangle hair. It has a lovely smell that is reminiscent of a perfume.

This product is paraben free and not tested on animals. Made in the USA.

Item 7: All subscribers received this item – Dr. Brandt Skincare – Needles No More – No More Baggage Eye De-Puffing Gel – Retail Value $42.00 – This is a salmon colored gel that is supposed to correct dark circles. https://amzn.to/2FkSHNZ

This really is a salmon color and goes on smooth.

This is made for all skin types.

You can use this product under makeup or alone.

Made in the USA.

Item 8: All subscribers received this item – Manna Kadar – Champagne Body Scrub – Retail Value $24 – This is an exfoliating scrub. There is a metal seal over the top of the container which I have not opened yet since I am working through some other products first. https://amzn.to/2YhZctR

This product is made in China which is always concerning but I will give it a try. The product is not tested on animals.

FabFitFun has a large online community with FFF TV and FFF Community. The online community is really active with topics about products, daily life, trading, meet-ups, etc.

I have been so pleased with FFF and cannot wait for the next upcoming event which is the “edit sale” (an online sale of products at discounted prices). Also looking forward to the summer box!

There was a learning curve of how to figure out this particular subscription – the customizations, the add-ons, the community, etc. If you have any questions on how this works, please feel free to leave a comment below. I would be happy to help!
