FabFitFun Winter 2019/2020 Editor’s Box Review

FabFitFun Winter 2019/2020 Editor’s Box

By Kimberly

My FabFitFun Winter 2019/2020 Editor’s Box Review is ready. FabFitFun has officially run out of the Winter 2019 Box (which is not surprising given how great it was) and started selling the Winter 2019/2020 Editor’s Box. I’ve created a new account and ordered the box. The box was originally only open to new subscribers. It did open without any customization choices to existing subscribers in the Edit Sale. It eventually opened with only 3 choices to existing subscribers in the shop.

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding the FabFitFun Editor’s Box

Are There Any Available Offers or Coupon Codes for Joining FabFitFun?

Use code FAB10 for $10 off the FabFitFun Summer 2020 Box subscription.

Will I get a FabFitFun Editor’s Box When I Sign Up?

Anyone who signs up for a new membership between seasonal boxes starts with a FabFitFun Editor’s Box as the first box of their subscription. As of the publication date, this is the starting box.

When does the FabFitFun Editor’s Box get released?

FabFitFun releases Editor’s Boxes after seasonal boxes sell out or in the Edit Sale, whichever comes first. Whenever seasonal boxes sell out, Editor’s boxes are only available to new members. Boxes in the Edit Sales are only available to existing members. More often than not, the boxes in the Edit Sale are not customizable. The only way for an existing FabFitFun member to get an Editor’s Box is to wait for it to go into the shop sometime after the Edit Sale closes or open a new account after the seasonal boxes are sold out.

How Much Does a FabFitFun Box Cost?

It costs $49.99 for a quarterly box or $179.99 for an annual subscription. Of course, you can scroll up or down to see my active coupon codes.

How Many Items are In a FabFitFun Box?

It almost always has 8, but it can have 7 or 9.

FabFitFun Winter 2019/2020 Editor’s Box Overview

The FabFitFun Winter 2019/2020 Editor’s Box retails for $49.99. There are 8 items in the box making the cost for each item $6.25.

There are box variations. The one I received has a $363.99 value. There was no option to select add-ons so they shipped in their regular boxes (the reason the box looks so beat up). Every box teams with a philanthropic cause. Like the regular Winter 2019 Box, this box supports the Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement.

The Editor’s Box came in the same box as of the winer box. I cannot recall that ever happening before. It had really rough travels, so I am definitely recycling it. Thankfully, everything arrived intact though.

Everything comes on white, crinkle cut paper.

Editor’s Boxes usually come with a product card to go over all the products and the cost to purchase them as well as a magazine. Mine had neither.

Fall 2019/2020 FabFitFun Editor’s Box Review

The Editor’s Boxes are usually not as themed as the seasonal ones, but the hat, balm, body cream, and hair treatment masks are great for winter. It is usually more about selling leftover products and giving us a chance to grab more of the ones we loved from the past.

I cover the items in the customization categories below, so I will just say I wanted seven of the eight items. Technically, I will probably use all eight. It’s just that I already have a lot of the eight item, so I was hoping for something different. The other seven items are great. One of the items is something I’ve ordered, but people keep stealing from me. Hopefully, I get to try it before it gets stolen this time. Fingers crossed. At $363.99 in value of which $347.99 I really wanted, it was a great use of my $39.99. The day after I ordered, FabFitFun released the code for $29.99.

FabFitFun Winter 2019/2020 Editor’s Box Customization

Of the eight items in the Editor’s Box for Winter, up to five are customizable. New seasonal subscribers and current subscribers can select three. New annual subscribers can make a selection in each of the five categories.

A lot of these products were in past boxes, so I will show you what some of them look like.

All Subscribers Can Customize

Choice 1

Summer & Rose Rosie Faux Snakeskin Tote Bag ($58), Jonathan Adler Fleur De Sel Ceramic Candle ($48), Kate Somerville® Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream ($65), DONNI Tri-Color Scarf ($99) Rachel Pally Scarf ($68), or 111SKIN Rose Gold Radiance Booster ($160). Members can add an extra choice options for $17. *This is the highest I’ve seen, so I bet the regular boxes are going up, too. It was $15 before.

I did trade for a Rachel Pally Scarf shown in this starter box. It is thin, so it is more of a 50-60 degree scarf, but it is lovely. That also shows the Dew Mist from Choice 6, which I do not own.

For customization 1, I selected the 111SKIN Rose Gold Radiance Booster. I know I will never purchase a $160 booster, so I hope I do not fall in love with it. That is the beauty and the danger of these boxes. They let me try things I could never afford. If I fall in love, I get sad though. It’s a lot of fun to test so many new things and even more fun when they’re bougie.

Choice 2

Genie by Eugenia Kim Brady Hat ($60), ban.do Bluetooth® Shower Speaker ($30) Rodial Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Mask ($58), or dr. brandt skincare pores no more® Luminizer Primer ($38), or Grown Alchemist Bundle: Deep Cleansing Facial Masque (Wheatgerm, Ginkgo & Cranberry) ($39) + Hand Cream (Vanilla & Orange Peel) ($15). Members can add extra choice options for $15 each.

I already own and love the primer. Though I own the mask, I would have loved to try the hand cream. If I could have selected everything in this category, I would have. Well, I would have if I could have done so for $10. Fifteen dollars felt a little steep, and I am cheap. Ultimately, I chose the hat, because it is utterly adorable. Pom hats never appealed to me as a kid, but they’ve grown on me as an adult. It looks like my taste is aging in reverse.

Choice 3

Winky Lux Mini Latte Kitten Palette ($20), Serefina Crystal Cuff Bracelet ($38), grace & stella Dr. Pedicure Exfoliating Foot Mask ($19.95-Amazon price may vary), Tease Tea Self Care Elixir ($29.95), tarte™ lights, camera, flahes™ statement mascara ($23), eyeko London Eye Do Black Liquid Eyeliner ($22), Jennifer Zeuner Star Double Necklace ($50-Amazon price may vary), or Burn 60 Resistance Bands ($34-Amazon price may vary). Members can add extra choice options for $7 each.

I owned everything in this customization but the bracelet, the tea, the palette, and the foot mask. Tea is not my thing and neither is jewelry. Either of the other two would have been fine. Both foot masks and neutral eyeshadow palettes are things I’m into. Ultimately, I went with the palette because I want to explore more Winky Lux products.

The Winky Lux Mini Latte Kitten Palette has 0.35oz of product making the cost per ounce $57.14. That prices it below most prestige brands, but higher than most drugstore brands.

There are six shades in the palette. The shades were inspired by an espresso drink, and they really smell like coffee. I like the smell of coffee, even though I dislike the way it tastes.

The shades are frothy (shimmering champagne gold), hazelnut (shimmering copper rose), brûlée (matte creme brûlée), honey lavender (shimmering rose gold), cinnamon (matte brick toned brown), and hibiscus (shimmering eggplant purple).

These are all one swipe swatches. I have high expectations for these other than brûlée, which will take some building and honey lavender.

This palette really lived up to my expectations. I used brûlée as my transition, cinnamon in my crease, frothy on the inner corner, honey lavender on the lid, and hibiscus on the outer corner.

Hazelnut went on the lower lash line and cinnamon went on the lower lash line from the middle to the edge of my eye.

I was going for somewhat of a sunset look, and I felt these shades pulled it off beautifully. While I wish hibiscus was matte and had a little less fallout, it got the job done. All the shades had a little fallout (other than hibiscus, which had a lot), which I do not mind. As long as you tap your brush, it is not too bad. The shades other than hibiscus all blended beautifully as well. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m not hating on hibiscus. It’s lovely, but it is harder to work with.

The colors stayed vibrant all day. I did not have any creasing at all using my NARS Pro Prime. While I did use a MAC Fix+ to help the colors adhere more vibrantly, I did not use a glitter glue. As expected, I did have to build brûlée. Unexpectedly, a little Fix+ and Honey Lavender was ready to sing. This is a beautiful palette. Winky Lux did a great job.

New Annual FabFitFun Subscribers 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

Stone Cold Fox Betsy Hardback Notebook ($30), Architec™ Wooden Spoons ($32), Doctor Rogers RESTORE® Healing Balm ($30-Amazon price may vary), Intelligent Nutrients Refining Micro Polish ($45-Amazon price may vary), or EleVen by Venus Venus Williams Foldable Gym Bag ($29). I did a seasonal subscription, so I did not get to select an option. My assumption is annual members could add extra choices for $7.

FabFitFun chose to send me the Doctor Rogers RESTORE® Healing Balm. This is the item I would have selected if given the choice. I wanted this in a previous box but did not get it. Balms are always nice products to have, especially in winter when skin gets really dry. My younger skin has been getting a lot of really dry patches, so I am going to try this soon.

Choice 5

Stone Street Soaphouse Hey Ho! Wholesome Body Cream ($24), Céla Crème de la Crème ($30), Free People x Understated Leather Starry Eyed Travel Eye Mask in Mint ($40), VictoriaLand Beauty® Skin-Loving Treatment For Eyes & Lips ($55-Amazon price may vary), or Skinvolve Body Boost Gel ($45). I did a seasonal subscription, so I did not get to select an option. My assumption is annual members could add extra choices for $7.

FabFitFun chose to send me the Stone Street Soaphouse Hey Ho! Wholesome Body Cream. This is the item I would have selected if given the choice. I am kind of a sucker for trying new body creams and everything about this one sounded intriguing. It also helps that I own every other item in this category.

FabFitFun Selects an Item at Random From Each Category Below

Product 6

grace & stella Rose Facial Spray ($25.95), SKIN&CO Roma Truffle Therapy Cleansing Oil ($30), SKIN&CO Roma Truffle Therapy Radiant Dew Mist ($35), Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair!™ Deep Conditioning Hair Cap (36), or René Furterer KARITE HYDRA Hydrating Shine Mask ($36).

FabFitFun chose to send me the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair!™ Deep Conditioning Hair Cap. This is the item I would have selected if given the choice. I’ve used this before and love it. At $9 for one, I feel it is just too expensive to purchase. Getting 4 in this box made me happy. In the past when I used this, my hair looked great and was super soft. It was shiny and a lot less frizzy than usual.

Product 7

CRAFT + FOSTER Room Spray ($18-Amazon price may vary), BLAQ Cleanse + Exfoliate Wipes ($18.14-Amazon price may vary), BLAQ HydroGel Eye Mask with Hyaluronic Acid ($29-Amazon price may vary), Soothe by Apana Full Body Massager, ($20-Amazon price may vary), or Hero Cosmetics Mighty Patch Invisible ($17.99).

FabFitFun chose to send me the Hero Cosmetics Mighty Patch Invisible. While this is not the item I would have selected if given the choice, it would have been my second choice. I’ve purchased this before. My nieces and nephews steal it before I can use it. Hopefully, I can use it this time. I already told my son about it and he stole a sheet, but I have two more. To make sure I can finally review these acne patches, I will use at least one before my son depletes them.

Product 8

Spongellé Boxed Flower in Sugar Dahlia ($16), Lavido Nurturing Hand Cream in Musk, Coconut & Shea Butter ($14-Amazon price may vary), invisibobble® ORIGINAL Duo Pack ($16), Kopari Beauty Coconut Deodorant ($14), Giadzy Copper Plated Measuring Spoons ($16-Amazon price may vary), or Baublerella Bling Brush ($19-Amazon price may vary).

FabFitFun chose to send me the invisibobble® ORIGINAL Duo Pack. The lotion would have been my first choice. I would have chosen the Spongelle next. Because I own all the others, I guess the invisibobbles were the best duplicate. They are something I like, they do not expire, and they are something I can always use more of. It’s just that I already have so many, and I really wanted that lotion. Had I gotten that lotion, this would have been a perfect box. Guess you can’t win them all!

Is The Winter 2019/2020 FabFitFun Editor’s Box Worth It?

I am extremely happy with the box I received. The items FabFitFun selected for me in categories four, five, and six were the exact ones I would have picked. While I would have picked the room spray in seven, I have purchased those acne patches before. My nieces and nephews steal them before I ever get to try them. Hopefully, I get to try them this time, so I am happy they’re here. Getting the Lavido Hand Cream would have been ideal, but the Spongelle would have been my next choice. Because I already own so many of these invisibobbles, I was not thrilled to see them. Then again, they are something I like and something I will use that does not expire. Overall this box was easily worth the $39.99 I paid for it. Now, I just have to resist the urge to pay $29.99 for a second box.

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 (12 and 7) 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 12-year-old to apply it.

  1. Please explain when annual subscriber can get the editors box and customize. I am a annual subscriber and saw on a post that we could purchase and customize some time after January 1st. Thank you.

  2. It is usually not until the Edit Sale is over. The Edit Sale is split. It ends on January 1st for us, but it does not end until January 12th for Seasonal/all access. Because this is the first time the Edit sale has ever split, no one can guess if the box will pop up in the split or after it is all over. You could start a new seasonal account and buy one box, but you would only get to customize the first three items.

Deal or No Deal? What Do You Think?
