FabFitFun Winter 2019/2020 Editor’s Box Review

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.

FabuFinds: The Best Finished Products Summer 2019

After I review my Empty Products, I take extra time to go over the standouts. It is a round-up for the best of the best. Only products that seem like they’re made for me make FabuFind status, so there are a lot of items I love that never make it. These are items I would repurchase, even without a deal. Items I am loving but cannot finish any time soon make it into my Core Collection (favorites). To eventually spotlight all FabuFinds, I will never repeat items already mentioned in a past article. That does not mean they lost their magic. An item not spotlighted in a past Empties article may get promoted as I try it more and fall deeper in love. If something gets demoted from FabuFind status (formula changes, skin changes, finding something better, etc), I will note the change in the original article I mentioned it in. There are five products I consider FabuFinds in my Summer 2019 Empties that I have not discussed yet.

FabFitFun Spring 2018 Editor’s Box Review

When the recent Edit Sale opened to seasonal subscribers on the 11th, I noticed FabFitFun was selling the Spring 2018 Editor’s Boxes. I had not even seen what was in them yet so I decided to take a look. It looked amazing, but ordering through the Edit Sale would have left it up to FabFitFun employees to pick four of my eight items. The other four are static so I have no choice. Three of the static four are products I received in the Winter 2017 and Spring 2018 boxes. Two of those were products I really would not mind duplicates of, and getting a duplicate of the third meant I could gift it to someone. I decided to see if it was available for separate purchase in the shop. Ordering outside of the Edit Sale allowed me to select all four of the choice items. That is better than the two I usually get to select as a seasonal subscriber. Items I purchased in the Edit Sale will get a separate haul article once the items arrive.

It meant the box would be even better suited to me, because every single option was an easy decision for me. There were clear winners in every category. The Editor’s Boxes are not included with your subscription, but they are available for the same $49.99 as a subscription box. This gives subscribers the option to buy the ones they like and skip the ones they don’t. There is an Editor’s Box for every season. Each Editor’s Box has items from past boxes so purchasing them is a great way for new members to catch up or established members to get duplicates of past items they loved. While I still think the Winter 2017 box was my favorite, I like the Editor’s Box with my choices a lot more than I liked the Spring 2018 box.

Birchbox Limited Edition Box Review Birchbox x Vogue: Transformation

Limited Edition Boxes are my favorite items to purchase from Birchbox. These are a mixture of full and sample sized items that usually fit a specific box theme. All boxes have a value far greater than the cost so they are a great deal when the items you want to keep exceed the value of what you’re paying. Better boxes sell out quickly, but the ones that linger will occasionally pop up in the sale section for 30% off. Aces sometimes get 40% off on sale items. Predicting which ones will sell out is not always easy so I buy the ones I really want close to the release date. If you’re on the fence because of price, wait it out.
