I recently had the pleasure of diving into the world of FabFitFun, and it's been an absolute delight from start to finish! As a dedicated fan of self-care and luxury, FabFitFun's subscription box intrigued me right from the get-go.
I’ve only interacted with the brand from friends who are subscribers, and of course, seeing influencers partake in the fun, but getting a box myself was so exciting!
Before we dive into the nitty gritty of this review, I want to highlight that we recently had the Co-Founder and Co-CEO of FabFitFun, Michael Broukhim, to share his story in building the brand!
In Episode 171, Michael shares his experience growing up with his older brother in Los Angeles, his incredible story of starting an online media consulting company, some ups and downs of developing websites for politicians, pivoting to launching a wellness blog, and how this all unfolded into his trailblazing CEO journey. Tune in to hear how he has evolved as a leader, the challenges of growing the company, the secret sauce to launching a brand, and the tips he recommends to stay grounded.
Now it’s time to learn more about this amazing brand he Co-Founded, FabFitFun! For those of you who haven’t heard of it, it’s a women’s lifestyle membership and shopping experience bringing joy and well-being to its members. They offer two kinds of memberships:
The Annual Membership
A prepay option priced at $54.99 ($219.99 annually, paid upfront) that gives you full access to everything. With your Annual Membership you gain access to a seasonal box with up to eight products, the ability to customize your entire box, unlimited swaps for credit, early access to customize and add-ons/edit sales, earlier shipping, and you’re able to cancel anytime. With this membership you’re billed annually and save $20, plus the customization perks!
The Seasonal Membership
A pay-per-box option priced at $59.99 gives you a seasonal box with up to six products. With this membership you’re only given four customizations, unlimited swaps for credit, and the ability to cancel anytime.
If you’re able to pay the $219.99 upfront for the annual membership, I would definitely recommend going that route!
For my box, I was graciously gifted the Summer 2023 seasonal box so I wasn’t able to choose my items, but I was happy regardless! Upon receiving my FabFitFun box, I was instantly impressed by the level of care put into its presentation. The packaging was not only aesthetically pleasing but also sustainable, which resonated with my values. The anticipation grew as I opened the box, and it felt like unwrapping a series of personalized gifts curated just for me. The products inside were a delightful mix of beauty, wellness, fashion, and home items, all from well-known and emerging brands. Since the items change per season, I’ll just give you a glimpse of what I received, but I highly recommend you check out their website to see everything they offer and sneak peeks of the boxes to come!
The first thing I grabbed out of my box was a Free People Distressed Wallet, and as someone who doesn’t get to shop at Free People often, I was ecstatic about this one! The wallet was a perfect addition to the Summer Box as it effortlessly combines style and functionality in a way that's both appealing and practical.
The next item in my box was the OUAI Fine to Medium Hair Treatment Masque. OUAI is one of my favorite haircare brands so this was a lovely surprise. If you're searching for a hair treatment that caters to your unique texture and amplifies its beauty, this masque is definitely worth adding to your routine. I loved the way it left my hair feeling silky smooth with a clean feel so I didn’t have to deal with the leftover residue feel. A win-win in my book!
Up next in my box was the Milk Makeup RISE Mascara, and I just have to say that this is my new favorite mascara! Its clean formula, innovative brush design, and impressive results make it a standout option for anyone seeking voluminous, lengthened lashes with minimal effort.
The next item was perfect for me being that I live so close to the beach…Sea & Grass Inc. Visor with Ribbon! While it’s not my usual style, it surely has become a staple of mine on the weekends!
My last (and definitely favorite) item was the Dime Optics Cienega Aviator Sunglasses. This was the perfect time for summer, and I’ve had my eyes on Dime Sunglasses for a long while now. If you're in search of sunglasses that not only elevate your fashion game but also prioritize your eye health, these are an excellent investment. They're a timeless addition to your wardrobe that will have you stepping out in style while safeguarding your eyes in every sunny adventure.
My journey with FabFitFun has been nothing short of delightful and fulfilling. The FabFitFun subscription box has proven itself to be a gateway to a world of wellness, self-care, and indulgence. From the moment I unboxed the carefully curated products to the day-to-day use of each item, I've been reminded that taking care of myself isn't just a luxury – it's a necessity.
In a world that often demands our time and energy, FabFitFun provides a tangible reminder to invest in oneself. It encourages a holistic approach to life, reminding us that true success encompasses not only professional achievements but also personal well-being.
If you're searching for a subscription box that transcends the ordinary, elevating your self-care routine and encouraging a balanced lifestyle, FabFitFun is undoubtedly a journey worth embarking upon. It's a reminder that taking care of yourself is an investment that pays dividends in every aspect of your life.
