FabFitFun Winter 2019 Subscription Box Review With Add-ons

By Kimberly

This is my Winter 2019 FabFitFun review. I ordered three Winter 2019 FabFitFun boxes and some add-ons, so I have a lot to go over. FabFitFun is a quarterly subscription that releases one box per season. Boxes have over $200 in value. The items are always full-sized and include products from: beauty, wellness, fashion, and fitness lines. Subscribers can either pay $179.99 for an annual subscription ($20 off when buying 4 boxes up front) or $49.99 for a Seasonal subscription. Shipping is free, but sales tax gets charged (in certain states). There is usually a code to receive $10 off your first seasonal box. Those codes are fffa2p6 and FAB10Members can select add-ons at deeply discounted prices to include with their boxes. All subscribers get to customize some choice options, but Annual Subscribers (select members) get extra choices.

Birchbox Limited Edition Box Hello Hygge Review

This is my Birchbox Limited Edition Box Hello Hygee review. I purchased the How to Hygee last year and had no problem paying full price for it. As this one did not appeal to me as much, I waited to purchase it until I could get a discount. 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. If it stays on sale long enough, it could even reach 50% off. 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.

FabFitFun For Him VIII – FabFitFun Men’s Box 3 Winter 2019

I am here to bring you the Winter 2019 FabFitFun Men’s Box 3 review. It is the Winter 2019 FabFitFun for Him VIII Edition. When the Winter 2019 add-ons opened up, this was a purchase option for $49.99. That gave me the opportunity to get my husband another FabFitFun box of his own. His first was the Winter 2018/2019 Men’s Gift Box, which was the initial box. The second box came out in Summer 2019, and I purchased him that one as well. This is the their iteration, so he’s received all of them so far. If one he is not interested in ever pops up, I will not buy it. Yes, I show him the items before I purchase it, because he is really picky.

FabFitFun For Him 2019 Edition- Men’s Gift Box Winter 2018 Review

See the new FabFitFun For Him III Edition -Winter 2019 Men’s Gift Box or keep reading to see the first edition below. 

When the add-ons opened up for the Winter 2018 Box, I noticed FabFitFun was offering a Men’s Gift Box for $49.99. It is the FabFitFun for Him 2019 Edition. That gave me the opportunity to get my husband a FabFitFun box of his own. I decided to show the contents to him before purchasing it instead of surprising him, because there were a couple of things I was unsure of. After looking, he assured me that he would probably try everything but the dopp kit. He already loves the dopp kit he owns. With 7 items inside, I figured it was still worth the purchase if he tried six. Besides, my 12-year-old (he was 11 when I ordered this but 12 when it arrived) does not have a dopp kit of his own yet. Everything inside this set would stay in the family making it a great purchase decision. While I am unsure if this was FabFitFun testing the waters to see if it could release a Men’s Box on a regular basis, its first release was a success with us. We would consider buying more, because my husband finally likes trying new things.
