FabFitFun 2019 Starter Box Review – The New Box is Out!

See the latest box, FabFitFun Starter Box 16 Fall 2019.

FabFitFun sent out another round of starter box invitations for me to send. One of the people I sent the 2019 FabFitFun starter boxes to texted me photos, so I can share them with you. I’ve already used most of these products, so I can also review the box. I do not have any starter boxes, but I will update this if that changes. Keep reading to see what you might get or to get some questions answered if you’ve received an invitation elsewhere. Whenever I get these invites, the person I send the box to gets it for free if s/he pays the $5 shipping charge. Anyone who does not cancel will automatically move to a seasonal subscription on the 21st day after the $5 gets charged. Either a Seasonal box (if there are any left) or an Editor’s box would start the official subscription.

Winter 2019 FabFitFun Editor’s Box Review (2018) and a Subscription Box Offer

FabFitFun released its 2019 Winter Editor’s Box in the Edit Sale that ran from December, 26th, 2018 through January 6th, 2019 calling it the Winter 2018 Editor’s Box. My issue with that is it was not even available when the sale opened on the 26th. How can the Editor Box be for Winter 2018 when Winter 2018 was basically over before anyone could purchase it? I purchased mine on January 7th, which was the first day it opened with customization options in the shop. The ability to customize is the main reason I grab it, so I will not grab it from the Edit Sale. Most items are repeats from past boxes, so we can customize to get more of the items we loved and avoid some of the ones we didn’t.

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

See the new FabFitFun For Him II Edition -Summer 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.

FabFitFun Fall 2018 Editor’s Box Review

When the recent Edit Sale opened to seasonal subscribers, I noticed the Fall 2018 Editor’s Boxes had the Skyn Iceland Peel instead of the headphones. I purchased that peel as an add-on with the Fall Box, because I want to try it. Getting a second one before I even try the first did not really appeal to me. My youngest son was jealous of the wireless headphones my oldest son got from the Fall box, so I was happy when I saw a Facebook video showing they were in the Editor’s Box. As they were the main thing I was after, that single change from what I saw on Facebook versus the box in the Edit Sale was enough to pass. Fast forward past the Edit Sale. On a random check in the Shop, I noticed the headphones were back. It seems like the Skyn Iceland Peel is only available now for anyone from Alaska or Hawaii due to shipping restrictions. That meant it was time to order the box and surprise my youngest with his own headphones.

FabFitFun Starter Box August 2018

See the latest box, FabFitFun Starter Box 16 Fall 2019.

I kept getting a pop-up on my FabFitFun account saying that I could send three starter boxes to anyone I wanted. These boxes usually retail for $19.99, but FabFitFun would send them to my lucky recipients for free as long as each one paid the $5 shipping charge. There really is no catch to these boxes, because people who are not happy with them can cancel within 21 days and pay nothing else. Anyone who does not cancel will automatically move to a seasonal subscription on the 21st day after the $5 gets charged. Either a Seasonal box (if there are any left) or an Editor’s box would start the official subscription. As I was only able to send three, and I have a nice network of friends and family, I had a hard time deciding who to send them to. The ability to send 3 starter boxes is not granted to everyone, because the seasonal account I opened to receive a duplicate fall box does not have this option.

FabFitFun Mystery Bundles Revealed and Reviewed

My FabFitFun Mystery Bundles get reviewed in this article. Yes, all of them, so sit back, relax, and strap on your seatbelt. Even though I love poker, I am not much of a gambler. It is a shame I cannot bring myself to gamble, because I am a very good poker player. No, I am not joking, and no, I do not feel the need to act humble. Anyway, I do gamble with beauty products in the form of Subscription Boxes. Most subscription boxes are a gamble. I hand over my money and the subscription service gives me products it thinks I want. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t, and other times I am not sure what I want. You never know when you initially think you’ve received a dud only to discover a gem or vice versa. Since I gamble on subscription boxes, why shouldn’t I gamble on Mystery Bundles? It’s the same concept, right?

FabFitFun Summer 2018 Editor’s Box Review

When the recent Edit Sale opened to seasonal subscribers, I noticed the Summer 2018 Editor’s Boxes were not included. They did not appear in the Shop either. Thankfully, I was able to track them down, because I wanted a few items inside. Ordering through the direct link gave me a chance to select 3 of the 8 items, which really can make or break a box. All three are items I already owned and want more of. Two of them were items I received from FabfitFun. Getting them inside a box gives them to me at a huge discount. Three of the items vary. The last two were static, so everyone who ordered the box received those. Once my order arrived, I had three brand new products, one duplicate of a product I purchased at Ulta, and four products I received in the Winter 2017Spring 2018, and Summer 2018 boxes.
