Worth It? fabfitfun
So, after dealing with my subscription addiction and canceling all of my subscription services I had acquired during the holiday season, I was suckered back in by fabfitfun (Facebook, Twitter). I liked that it was a quarterly shipment and only $49.95 for their VIP box. I signed up with a special that gave me $5 off your first box.
Like all of these types of things, you never know what will be in your box – which makes it like Christmas throughout the year. The downside of course being that you inevitably end up with items you don’t want or won’t use. I generally give these items to others as gifts, especially if it seems to be a good fit with one of my friends. I’ve also recently learned of people selling items from their box to others on ebay or other sites – one man’s treasure and tall that.
I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by what I received in my first box. The Kai perfume alone was worth the entire box for me. It retails for approximately $48 (more than the $44.95 I paid) and smells amazing. The small roll-on bottle should last me all summer! On top of that I received shower steamers (similar to a bath bomb but for the shower that creates an amazing eucalyptus steaming experience) and I’ve already used two of the four I received. Other items in my shipment included some dry shampoo, which was not my brand, but worth using at some point I assume, a headband (super cute and funky), CoverFX makeup, an exfoliating mitt, and an exercise video with accompanying equipment. I also received some kale chips that my husband ate – all and all a good deal for the price!
For me, the box is definitely worth it. On top of the subscription, the content they post online and on Facebook is actually interesting and doesn’t feel like a hard sell. Also, their customer service is amazing. There was a mix up with my delivery due to a new shipping system, and when I contacted the company, I received an email the same day letting me know that my shipment was in the mail and I would be receiving a $15 credit on my next quarterly shipment.
I highly recommend you check it out for yourself. I find it is worth the money, at least so far, but you can cancel any time. The quarterly shipment also doesn’t feel like as much of a commitment as my other subscriptions in the past have been. They are offering the same $5 discount on their Summer VIP box as well. Check it out and let me know what you think!
