My FabFitFun Fall 2019 Editor’s Box review is ready. I ordered the FabFitFun Fall 2019 Editor’s Box yesterday for $49.99 when the ability to customize the first five categories opened in the shop. Only random boxes were available in the Edit Sale for $39.99, and even with the $10 off, I did not think that was a good deal. The ability to customize really makes all the difference. As far as I know, there is not a code to start with this box yet. That means this box is only available for current subscribers to purchase separately. New subscribers will start with the Fall Box, but they can order this from the shop immediately after joining.
My FabFitFun Summer 2019 Editor’s Box review is ready. I ordered my first box today, and I ordered my second box on July 18th. The shop reopened on the 16th as planned, but the Editor’s Box was not available for purchase until late in the day on the 17th. Members can now select all five options when they purchase from the shop, so we get more choices than the two category options we received in the Edit Sale. After making the calculated decision to pass on paying $49.99 for two options in the Edit Sale, I paid $39.99 for three options today when I got $10 off using the promo code COOL. That is a code designated for the Summer Editor’s Box. Please note that the Summer 2019 Box is still in stock. If you use a code not designated to an Editor’s Box, you will start with a summer box. Well, I also paid $10 for an extra customization in category one, so it was like I got a free item and an extra pick for the same $49.99. I did pay the full $49.99 on the 18th for a second box, so I could make all five choices without opening a second annual subscription.
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.
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.
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.
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 2017, Spring 2018, and Summer 2018 boxes.
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.
