FabFitFun Spring Box 2018

You may have seen all the videos on Facebook featuring millennial social media personalities as they unbox their recent FabFitFun Boxes. Me too, and as a 56 year old mama with a 27 year old daughter, I’ve all but ignored them thinking these boxes had nothing to offer the midlife woman.

Oh how I was wrong, my friends. I signed up, in all honesty, to evaluate for myself if these fun and exciting boxes held any treasures for the mature woman. Much to my surprise, they do and then some.

So from one 50 something woman to another, here’s my review from my “mature” perspective.

What Is FabFitFun?

FabFitFun is a quarterly subscription box and what impresses me the most is the thoughtfully selection of FULL SIZE products that are included in every box. From beauty (tons) to home, fitness and accessories, each box is a joyful combination of useful goodies you’ll want to order again and again.

Each box usually contains oodles of products that amount to a retail value of $300.00, so if you find one product in your box that you are suddenly obsessed with, you’ve scored a major deal, since each box only costs only $49.99 including shipping.

I just receive the Spring Box and it’s honestly like Christmas morning in Spring! Take a look and my FabFitFun loot for Spring ~ a $347.00 value!

Final Thoughts

I was blown away by the incredible and fun FULL SIZE products to try from name brand vendors in each FabFitFun Box (this is my third). Again, if you fall in love with but one product, you are money ahead.

I stalk my UPS driver each season as I impatiently wait for my next FabFitFun Box to arrive ~ true story, please don’t turn me in to the authorities.

Final note, each quarterly box is a festive and creative new design, which can be reused in a multitude of ways. Over the holidays, I used two of them for Christmas Ornaments ~ Boo Yaaa!

    I have to admit that I was skeptical about these boxes, until I received one—it is like Christmas, and there’s usually not one thing I don’t love!!
    Those earrings are absolutely perfect!!

    Sounds like a great box. I want to subscribe to a box for a long time now, but keep forgetting it. I have to check out what boxes ship to the Netherlands too!

      Morning Nancy! I’m not exaggerating when I tell you how much I’ve loved the three boxes I’ve received so far. I’ve even ordered a subscription for my daughter as a gift. She’s received two boxes so far and we have so much fun talking about our box faves. Xo Jonet
