FabFitFun Spring 2019 Editor’s Box Review and a Subscription Box Offer
My FabFitFun Spring Editor’s 2019 Box review is ready. Spoiler alert, I love it so much that I purchased two. FabFitFun released its 2019 Spring Editor’s Box in the Edit Sale (which starts tomorrow). This usually pops up in the shop after the Edit Sale wraps, so I appreciated the opportunity to buy it with the options I wanted without waiting for the Edit Sale to wrap first. I ordered mine today. The Spring 2019 FabFitFun Box is still available for purchase, so new members will likely start with that box. Existing members can purchase the Spring 2019 FabFitFun Editor’s Box, as I did, for $49.99 (each). These boxes arrived on the 11th, which was only 10 days after I ordered them.

When does the FabFitFun Editor’s Box get released?
The Spring Editor’s 2019 Box got released earlier than others. It almost always gets released in the Edit Sale. Prior to this box, there were no customization options when purchasing it from the Edit Sale. There were two options this time, so we are making progress. To customize more options, current subscribers must purchase it from the shop or open another subscription. It does not usually pop up in the shop until after the Edit Sale wraps, but it never hurts to check (as I did with this one and got lucky).
Anyone who signs up for a new membership between seasonal boxes starts with an Editor’s Box as the first box of their subscription. As of the publication date, there are still Spring boxes left, so you will start with the FabFitFun Spring 2019 Box unless you use a code designated for this Editor’s Box. The regular codes, fffa2p6 or FAB10, will get you $10 off whichever box FabFitFun is selling when you happen upon this post. You can use code GOGOGO to get $20 off (40%) and start your subscription with this box or RENEW to get $10 off (20%) and a free mystery bundle worth at least $125 and start your subscription with the FabFitFun Spring 2019 Box. New annual subscribers ($179.99 for 4 boxes) can select all five customizations I go over below. Seasonal subscribers ($49.99 per box) who are new can only select three.
FabFitFun Spring 2019 Editor’s Box Overview
The Spring 2019 Editor’s Box retails for $49.99. There are 8 items in the box making the cost for each item $6.25.
FabFitFun Spring 2019 Editor’s Box Customization
Of the 8 items, five are customizable. Existing subscribers (whether annual or seasonal) who purchase through the shop can choose one item from the five customizations.
All FabFitFun Subscribers Can Customize
Choice 1 : DIFF Cruz Sunglasses ($85), Private Party “Beach Please” Beach Towel ($50), or Yumi Kim Hanging Train Case ($58; according to the product card, because I cannot find this online).
I really enjoyed the Yumi Kim bag I received in the Summer 2018 FabFitFun box, but I did not think I needed another one (even though it looks really pretty). For my main box, I selected the Private Party “Beach Please” Beach Towel. The design is really cute, and I love that it is 100% poly microfiber. The towels we received in the Summer 2018 FabFitFun box are microfiber, and they are amazing. Hopefully, I like this one as much. It is thin like the others but not oversized.
If I did not purchase a second box, I would have passed on the DIFF Cruz Sunglasses. We received aviators in the FabFitFun Spring 2019 box, and I am not a huge fan of this glass style in general. I am glad I ordered a second box though, because these look better on me than the ones I received in the spring box. Besides, I love glasses and can never have too many.
I like that it comes with a nice carrying case. Expensive glasses ($50+) should always come with a case. While I prefer a hard case, these soft cases seem to protect just fine.
Choice 2: EleVen by Venus – Venus Williams Foldable Gym Bag ($29), Ettika Opal Rose Necklace ($40), or ISH #IMSMOKINGHOT Palette ($32).
I really was not interested in anything from this lineup. It is the one weak spot of this box to me. The necklace looks cute, but I don’t really wear jewelry. This bag looks really cheap, and I already have a ton of bags anyway. ISH gets pushed really hard by FabFitFun, but I do not really see the appeal. For the first box, I chose the Ettika Opal Rose Necklace.
It is a lot more delicate in person than it looks in the stock photos. That is actually okay with me, because I prefer when my jewelry is not heavy or obnoxiously large. The opal looks stunning when it catches the light. This is a piece I did not originally think I’d want, but I’ve decided to keep it.
For my second box, I selected the ISH #IMSMOKINGHOT Palette. I figured I cannot really write the brand off on looks alone. Besides my nieces are always asking me for makeup. If I try it and dislike it, I know someone will use it.
I do really like the shades, but it is a pretty basic, neutral palette. These tend to get lost in the shuffle, because I have so many.
Most of the swatches were nice, so my expectations went up. Of the 10 shades, only Sexy, Confident, and Bold needed a second pass. The others provided full pigment on the first swipe. None of the shades look overly chalky or powdery either. Many of them actually feel really silky.
I will edit in a picture and review once I try this.
All FabFitFun Subscribers Who Purchase Outside of the Edit Sale Can Customize
Choice 3: dpHUE ACV Hair Masque ($42), or Murad® Renewing Eye Cream ($82).
This was the section I had the hardest time with. I have dry hair and dry under eyes, so I really wanted to try both. Since it takes me forever to use an eye cream, I figured I would need a hair mask sooner. Thus, I selected the dpHUE ACV Hair Masque on the first box. It’s funny because I almost purchased this from a past FabFitFun Sale and refrained based on how many hair masks I already own. I really want to try this one though, and now, I can.
This Murad® Renewing Eye Cream is one I’ve wanted to try for a long time. I have so many, but this may need to cut some of the others in line. It promises to diminish puffiness, crow’s feet, and dark circles. if it delivers moisture with any of those claims, it will make me happy. Besides, it is not like I would have ever tried this without getting a sample or purchasing a kit with it. Spending that much on an unproven item is not common for me. Most of my expensive skincare purchases come after I fall in love with a sample.
Annual FabFitFun Subscribers and Current Seasonal Subscribers Who Purchase from the Shop Can Customize
New Seasonal subscribers, those who purchase from the Edit Sale, anyone who purchases after customization closes, and those who ask for a surprise box will receive one item at random.
Choice 4: tarte™ lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara ($23), or tarte™ Rainforest of the Sea™ drink of H2o hydrating boost ($39).
This was an easy decision. While I have heard many incredible things about this mascara, I get samples of it all.the.time. I give them away often and still usually have 2-3 on hand. If I love it once I eventually try one of my samples, I may regret this decision later. For now, I am happy that I got the tarte™ Rainforest of the Sea™ drink of H2o hydrating boost in both boxes to give my dry skin a boost of moisture. It looks amazing, so I have really high expectations.
Choice 5: AHAVA Dermud Intensive Foot Cream ($29), or this works® deep sleep™ pillow spray ($29).
I almost selected the this works® deep sleep™ pillow spray on both boxes, because I really love this stuff. My son really loves it, too. Then, I realized I had three of them (before I placed this order). How many backups does one need! So, I got the spray for the first box, and the AHAVA Dermud Intensive Foot Cream for the second box. The other reason I hesitated is I purchased this as an add-on with the Fall 2019 FabFitFun Box and have not tried it yet. What if I don’t like it, and I get stuck with two? Once I reminded myself how much I like the regular foot cream and hand cream from this brand, I realized I will probably love it. Now, I have 4 pillow sprays and 2 of these foot creams. Yay to stockpiles! No worriess though, because I can finish it all.
All FabFitFun Subscribers Receive These
Summer & Rose Celine Trinket Dish ($18)
I think the Summer & Rose Celine Trinket Dish is really cute. It is always nice to get sets, because I like to place one by each sink in the master bath and rotate them out to keep things fresh. Thus, I am happy to have two of these. They look as nice in person as they look on the screen.
Lavido Aromatic Body Lotion in Mandarin, Orange & Bergamot ($19)
I was happy to see the Lavido Aromatic Body Lotion in Mandarin, Orange & Bergamot in the box. It is an item I kind of wanted from the FabFitFun Spring 2019 box, but I did not want to pay $10 to try it, especially given my HUGE lotion stockpile. Now, I have two thanks to ordering two boxes. If I love it, I will keep the second one.
WAY OF WILL Strengthening Nail & Cuticle Serum ($24)
This WAY OF WILL Strengthening Nail & Cuticle Serum is the only product I am unsure if I will keep the duplicate of. In theory, I should use this all the time. Despite applying lotion or hand cream after every hand wash, my cuticles peel at times. Every time I purchase one of these, it goes bad before I finish it. I never remember to apply it. If I really enjoy this and remember to apply it, I will keep the duplicate. Otherwise, I will pass the second one on.
The FabFitFun Spring 2019 Editor’ Box Theme
There are box variations. The ones I received have a $265 (first choices) and $332 (second choices) value. There was no option to select add-ons so they shipped in their regular boxes (the reason they look so beat up). Every box teams with a philanthropic cause. Like the regular Spring 2019 Box, this box supports The Ian Somerhalder Foundation.
Everything in the Editor Box comes on top of white crinkle cut paper wrapped in white tissue and sealed with a sticker. This was my first box.
This was my second box.
Each box comes with a magazine. Unlike the regular boxes, the contents of the box are not listed in the magazine.
It is a pretty small magazine, but there is an article on how the box gets curated.
It is pretty much what you’d expect.
The back of the magazine encourages sharing it on Instagram to possibly win a prize. I probably will, because it has been a while and you never know.
A product card goes over all the items and options. It lists the cost for each item.
The back of the card has a note from FabFitFun stating the items in this box are hand-picked for us. Technically, the items in every box are hand-picked for us so that is not exclusive to the Editor’s Boxes.
There was a coupon inside for $10 off a box, but you can always find a coupon for $10 off (scroll up or down to see them), so I think this was a waste of paper.
I got some more Hello Fresh coupons if anyone wants them.
Spring 2019 FabFitFun Editor’s Box Reviews
The Editor’s Boxes are usually not as themed as the seasonal ones, but the towel and sunglasses do fit the spring. It is more about selling leftover products and giving us a chance to grab more of the ones we loved from the past. This box has more products I have not seen in other boxes or past sales than any other box I’ve seen. That is probably why I grabbed two.
Spring 2019 FabFitFun Editor’s Box 1 Review
I already covered the items above, so I will just say I really wanted seven of the eight items. At $265 in value of which $225 I really wanted, it was a great use of my $49.99. As it turns out, I will happily keep all 8 items meaning I am getting $265 in value after all. If I had to choose between the boxes, I probably would have chosen the one below over this one. It is funny how perception and reality can alter once the products actually arrive. Of course, it may alter again as I start trying the products. With four moisturizing products, my dry skin and hair will love trying these items.
Spring 2019 FabFitFun Editor’s Box 2 Review
I already covered the items above, so I will just say I really wanted seven of the eight items. Granted, by ordering the first box I knew I was getting four duplicates. At $332 in value of which $300 I really wanted, it was a great use of my $49.99. As it turns out, I will happily keep all 8 items meaning I am getting $332 in value after all. My first thoughts were that the palette is not good, I do not need another pair of aviators (even though I never mind having more sunglasses), and I have too much eye cream. Now, that everything is here, I am really happy to have it all. I am even going to try to apply cuticle oil as often as possible, so I use my duplicate products. Of course, I will give dupes away if I dislike a product. They all look really promising though.
Is The Spring 2019 FabFitFun Editor’s Box Worth It?
I paid $99.98 for $597 in product. Even though I had some reservations about specific products, letting my stockpiles grow, and getting some duplicates by ordering two boxes, I am really happy with this purchase. Even though I also enjoyed the FabFitFun Spring 2019 Box enough to order two, I think this is slightly better. It surprises me how much I prefer these aviators to the ones in the spring box. They’re oversized, but I prefer a more compact fit. Not that these are small, but they are smaller than the other ones.
There are a ton of moisturizing products in this box, which is more common for fall and winter. I do not even mind though, because I love moisture and cannot get enough. Plus, the necklace is cuter than I expected, the palette swatched better than I expected, and I love getting that pillow spray for less than $29! The trinket trays are adorable, and I was regretting missing that lotion (will be a bummer if it sucks once I finally try it). Either box is easily worth the $49.99 I paid, but I never would have known how much I prefer the second one if I only ordered one. I am so happy I got both.
Anyone who signs up for a Spring Box from April 10th (until supplies run out) using the code RENEW will get 20% off plus a free Mystery Bundle valued at $125+. The Mystery Bundles (click that link to see some of the ones I’ve reviewed) are usually $29. Keep in mind the box I reviewed here is the FabFitFun 2019 Spring Editor’s Box. Using that offer would give you the FabFitFun Spring 2019 Box, which I reviewed separately. *Offer expired 04/18/19.

I'm Kimberly. Shopping is always more fun when I've found the best deal available, so I am always on the hunt. My father instilled that in me, and I love that I carry a piece of him. Sometimes, my husband and sons (13 and 8) let me shop for them, too. They do not use as many beauty products as I do. We can all benefit from nice products, even though their routine ends with moisturizer. That is when I can convince my 13-year-old to apply it.
