My First FabFitFun Box - Fall 2019 + Goodies! ⭐️

Okay so first off, that is a lot of F’s in my title.. try saying that 3 times fast. Lol. & second, Hi! I genuinely hope that you’re having a good day so far. ❤️

Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get into this FFF subscription box... Yay! These boxes are always so exciting, like Christmas ðŸ˜†

Now unless you’re living under a rock with Patrick Star, just about everyone knows about this one, myself included, since its promoted by just about every influencer & celebrity nowadays. It has always piqued my interest, but I just could never justify spending the fifty bucks. With 8 small kids, you can ALWAYS find a more productive way to spend $50. And when you have 8 kids all under age 11, fifty bucks is a LOT of money sometimes. But a couple of weeks ago I came across a promo they were running for this fall box. Not only were they offering the $10 off your first box, but if you use the code “goodies” you’ll also receive a mystery bundle of products valued at $125+

🌟 Get your box for 50% off + goodies here! 🌟

My Fall 2019 Box

**If you haven’t heard of this box yet... the FabFitFun box is a seasonal subscription box. You receive a box 4 times a year.. Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. Value of boxes are claimed to be worth $200+. They do offer customization options so you can pick what items you want to receive, or you can choose to leave it all a mystery. Or half/half. I’m 100% a control freak, so of course I logged in and did every single custom choice they offered. But your first box is $39.99 (with link, I posted mine at the bottom), and all subsequent boxes are $49.99, you can cancel anytime.

Okay I’m in, let’s do it.
I placed my order and then spent a good part of my evening reading through heaps of comments from current subscribers as well as the FFF faq section of the site. Because I am a complete lunatic & have this need for instant gratification, I wanted to know how soon my box was going to come. I paid the $39.99 so the irrational & impatient part of Kim’s brain is like “umm hello? why aren’t they sending me a tracking number within minutes?”, like I’m the only customer they have right? Lmao. 

But after reading through all of the info and comments, I had pretty much accepted the fact that it was probably going to be a month or longer before I get this box. That isn’t going to stop me from checking for any shipping updates daily tho.

To my surprise.. I got my tracking # in my email just 6 days later. Nice job FabFitFun, you gained +10 points from this consumer. 
...Fast forward another 6 days and I’m sitting in the school pick up line getting the kiddos from school (yesterday) and... I GOT THE NOTIFICATION. It had arrived guys. The one from FedEx telling me my box had been delivered. So I got out of line, left the kids at the school and drove home to check out my new box! Ok calm down.. I’m kidding kidding KIDDING (for you in the back still judging lol). I got the kids from school THEN went home. 📦 📦 📦

This box is HUGE. Way bigger than I expected (that’s what she said. Ha. yes I know I’m 12). But needless to say, I was very very pleased with everything I received. My customization for item #1 I ended up choosing “mystery pick”, because I wanted that pink hair straightener but they were sold out by the time I ordered my box (boooo). And let’s be real here, I have no use for a scarf (yes, hi I live in south Texas aka the devils buttcrack) and also zero use for a yoga mat because -Hi my name is Kim nice to meet ya, I don’t do any sort of strenuous activities if I don’t have to even tho I know I should kthnksbye-

💜 So now the fun stuff yay! I ended up getting SO many items.. my mystery pick ended up being a lovely smelling foot cream. But here’s the list of everything I received & their value:
(I’ve also included some Amazon affiliate links for anyone who wants to purchase individual products. Most links are cheaper than the fff value price)

Ugh, geez that was A LOT to write out lol. Which is a good thing because holy cow, do you see how much amazing stuff I got for just $39.99 ?! Yeah I was just as impressed/surprised as you are.. I fully expected for it to be a good deal, but never expected such expensive skincare products for my free goodies. My promo mystery items ended up having a total value of $154 (ALL FREE.. I can’t stress that enough lol, I always love a good deal) And my Fall box had a total value of $241 (as shown below).

But if you go to the FabFitFun page on pretty much any of the social media platforms, 95% of all comments are sooo negative. From “this is the worst box yet!” and “shipping times are horrible/ridiculous” & I’m cancelling my subscription ASAP!”.
I’m sorry so many consumers are having so many issues/problems, that sucks. My personal experience was extremely pleasant and a smooth transaction. I was also happy with all the products received since I will use them all in one way or another. I will update if my next box doesn’t go so smoothly. 
My theory (if you even care lol) that the reason all the comments are negative because only the people having problems are the ones reaching out to the social media pages, looking for a resolution/solution. So maybe that’s why the majority is negative, it’s just the % of customers experiencing a problem. Idk, just something that crossed my mind. 🤷‍♀️

 If you do just wanna try out the first box and cancel afterwards, you will still get your money worth and more. A great thing about the FFF forum on their website is that if you do get any products you don’t want or have no use for, there’s a thread dedicated just to product swapping, where you can swap X for Y or swap Y for Z, etc. 

Hey! If you’ve managed to make it this far & are still reading this, (I know, I ramble. A LOT.) I just want to personally say thank you for being here, on a serious note- it really does mean so much to me to have you. And if maybe my mixture of rambling, bad jokes, & sarcasm are your cup o’ tea I’d love for you to subscribe and/or come be friends with me on the social sites ðŸ˜ -social links at the bottom as always!
