What is it? FabFitFun VIP

FabFitFun VIP is a US based lifestyle subscription box for women. FabFitFun is a beauty and lifestyle e-zine that is associated to E! News and Giuliana Rancic. Every 3 months, the editors of FabFitFun send out a mystery VIP box filled with their favourite products as well as must have products of the season. Each box includes three Choice items where subscribers can choose between 1 or 2 options. Yearly subscribers get to customize two additional products in each box. I'm a yearly subscriber so I can take advantage of this perk! Subscribers also have exclusive access to FabFitFun TV, an online source to stream workouts, meditations, yoga, and now cooking lessons.

As of May 20, 2018 FabFitFun is assessing GST on Canadian purchases (subscriptions, add-ons, and shop orders). It's less than $3 extra per box to cover taxes. The shipping cost remains at $8 per subscription box and $10 for shop orders. There are no additional tax or duty charges assessed on delivery.

For Fall, FabFitFun wants us to celebrate all the little things that create joy. The Fall box was designed by Clare Owen, a UK based illustrator.

The inset is now a true glossy mini-mag. It's 25 pages full of details on the products, makeup tips, styling suggestions, and more.

What's in the box!

This season FabFitFun is supporting Right Action for Women, an organization founded by Christina Applegate in 2008. RAW provides women with the resources, information and support they need to know about their risk of breast cancer so they can take the right action for themselves.

First look!

There was a lot of customization this season. Quarterly members were able to select 3 products and annual subscribers (Select Members) were able to select 5 products! 

About the bag: Made exclusively for Vince Camuto x FabFitFun, the Luck Tote is durably crafted of wipe-clean, pebbled vegan leather styled with a contrast stripe. Cut with clean lines and generously sized to carry your daily essentials, the tote is designed with an unlined sueded interior and hanging slip pocket that holds your keys, commuter pass and more. Double-layer topstitched straps let you carry the tote on your shoulder or in hand.

 
This tote is made with "vegan leather" and measures 17 inches by 11.5 inches. I opted for basic black; my fail safe!
 
 
 It's very narrow with no gusset. It will fit a book and some small odds and ends.

This is a limited edition collaboration between FabFitFun and Alfred. I have enough tea pots so I chose the french press.

I don't drink coffee much, especially at home. This will be good for times when I want a cup, or when I have guests. It has a bit of a retro vibe which I like.

These earbuds have pressure-free silicone ear-tips for the most comfortable fit. There's an onboard control switch and a neck strap to keep things tangle free.  

 
This bath soak is made with natural Eucalyptus oil, Greek Mastiha, Mediterranean Sea Salts + Goji Berry Extract. It's great for after an intense workout or when you want to unwind.  

Grown Alchemist Polishing Facial Exfoliant ($67)
This daily exfoliant is made with glucomannan from konjac root to absorb oils. Grown Alchemist is "Botanical Beauty" with all ingredients sourced from nature.

The next items were included in all box for all subscribers!

Skin & Co Roma Blue in Capri Shower Gel ($22)
This shower gel gently cleanses and hydrates with scent of wild sage & lemon.

Beauty Blender ($20)
This iconic beauty tool is used to seamlessly blend cream, powder, and liquid formulas. The pointed end is for the sides of the nose and under eyes. The rounded end is to buff the rest of the face.

Glam Glow Bubblesheet Masks ($18)
This product is very cool so I will use the Glam Glow description to explain it:
A weekly bubble detox to put skin in its happy place. Have fun, get clean! Our first-of-its-kind oxygenating deep cleanse mask with green tea TEAOXI® works to reveal glowing, deeply purified skin in just three minutes. Upon application, this bamboo charcoal-infused sheet mask activates an oxygenating and tingling 3D bubbling experience that instantly invigorates, detoxifies, and removes face makeup.
A tingling 3D bubbling experience! Can't wait to give this one a try.

Simply Whimsical Tea Towels ($15)
Tea towels seems like an odd item for FFF but I love them! Perfect timing as I've been meaning to buy new ones.

We also included a Luna Bar, which was a brand sponsored item.

My Fall 2018 FabFitFun box included nine items valued at $372 US. I paid around $53 US for this box, including shipping, based on a yearly pre-paid subscription. That works out to around $68 Canadian. The value is incredible. I'm happy with this box. There's lots of interesting and useful products that we don't normally see in subscription boxes. Oddly enough, the coffee press and tea towels are my favourite.

Interested in trying FabFitFun? Use promo code FAB10 to save $10 off your first box. Your first box will be this Fall box, while supplies last. Once Fall is sold out, new subscribers will get the Editor's box first, then next season's Winter box.
