The Box

fabfitfun ships via FedEx Smart Post and took about a week to arrive to me.  I believe they had a few different box colors they sent out this season (all of which were designed by artist Jocelyn Edin). I received this pretty mint colored one.

As usual, this season’s fabfitfun was packed full. We always seem to get full spoilers for this one in advance, so I knew what was coming in it.

The Information Book

Inside

fabfitfun sends a mini magazine along with each box.  It lists the items in the box along with interviews and other articles.  This month had an interview with Whitney Port and the new FabFitFun Beauty Advisor, Joey Maalouf, a list of 25 FFF favorite holiday songs, a feature on amazing travel destinations and also travel tips.

The magazine also included this…

And now on to the contents of the Winter 2015 fabfitfun box:

~Candlenut Body Creme by JUARA ($35): This cream is super thick and rich and made my hands, feet, elbows and knees instantly soft.  The container itself, however, was a giant pain to open. I had a heck of a time getting the foil seal off the top.  In fact, I never ended up getting it all off and just gave up.

~Wine Stopper and Charm Set by FabFitFun ($15): Complete cuteness!  This set includes a silicone wine bottle stopper and six little silicone wine glass charms.  I love these little guys.  And the packaging this all came in was adorable too.  I wanted to use my new stemless TODAY POPSUGAR box wine glasses tonight, but now I want to use these little guys on my stemmed glasses!

~Travel Set with Special Cleansing GelMulti-Active Toner and Skin Smoothing Cream by Dermalogica ($45): I think FabFitFun has included a Dermalogica product in the past haven’t they?  They make good stuff and I am going to give this to one of my cousins in the next care next care package I send her because I know she will love it. I may end up ordering a second FFF box though because I do want a set like this for me too.  It would be super nice for traveling!

~Fingerless Gloves by Whitney eve x FabFitFun ($28): I go back and forth about fingerless gloves.  I get why they are handy (texting and, well, more texting), but they kind of defeat the purpose of gloves don’t they?  I’ll wear them this winter I am sure, but not when I really really need to stay warm.  What would have been great was if these would have included a mitten flap so you could wear these as mittens OR fingerless gloves!  Now that’s handy.

~EJH Brand Diffuser ($37): VIP members (annual / long term subscribers) were able to choose their scent for this.  You could select between Cinnamon, Pomegranate, Sugar Cookie or Lavender and I, of course, picked Sugar Cookie.  It smells delightful and it’s almost like I have cookies baking in the house.  Almost.

~Zoya Nail Polish (Dakota) ($9): I wouldn’t say this is overly exciting, but it’s totally useful.  It’s a great shade for the holidays (Zoya describes it as a dramatic dark cherry creme with a very subtle hint of brown) and it will be on my nails beginning tomorrow.  If you aren’t familiar with them, Zoya makes 5-free polishes in a ton of amazing shades.

~FRENDS The “Donna” Earbuds ($80): Subscribers were able to choose these in Black & Gold, Black & Rose Gold or White & Silver. I went with the Black & Rose Gold.  For $80 earbuds I expected these to be a fancy box or include a cool carrying case or something.  I need to be careful not to lose them before I even use them!  I briefly tested them and thought the sound was good, but I’m not a headphone expert by any means and really just care if I can get them to stay in my ears comfortably.   I thought these did, so it’s a win.

~Sweet and Spark Gift Card ($40): Sweet & Spark offers curated vintage jewelry.  Shipping is free at Sweet and Spark and there are items priced under $40 so this really is a gift card and not a voucher.  It NEVER expires either which is awesome.  If you don’t see something you like now, totally hang on to it and check back later.

~Shoptiques Gift Card ($25): This is such a fancy gift card holder.  And this is also a “real” gift card and can be used on items under $25 as well.

All totaled the Winter 2015 fabfitfun box had a value of $314!  That’s remarkable considering the box itself was only $49.99!  It didn’t seem like it had as many items as their boxes normally do (and didn’t have any sponsored items), but I am very very happy with this box.  So much so that I am seriously considering snagging another one before they sell out!  Oh, the box also included a coupon code for Hello Fresh (3 free meals which expire on 6.30.16), but it’s only for new customers which I am not.

I didn’t take a picture of the card with all the details, but fabfitfun paired up with the ASPCA for this box!  They will be donating $1 (up to $90,000) for every “meow-ment” posted to Instagram with the hashtags #FFFAnimallove #FabFitFun and #ASPCA. You can check out all the details on that here.

What do you think of fabfitfun?  What was your favorite item from this box?  If you haven’t yet subscribed but want to get signed up (you’d receive this Winter box as your first one) you can use the coupon code “JINGLE” to save $10 off your first box or “SNOWY5” to get $5 off your first box plus a free fruit infused water bottle.

    Great review and I’m glad you mentioned you had a hard time opening the body creme by Juara, I tried opening and gave up, it wouldn’t move. Glad to know it actual opens after some hard work, lol. I loved the contents of this box and the wine stopper and charm set are too cute. I’m gifting the earbuds and polish as added Christmas gifts. I like how I can gift a few of the items from my sub boxes this month.
    Have a relaxing weekend, Jen.

    I feel the same way about the gloves! I love the look, but without the mitten flap I don’t see the point. When I mentioned this previously someone told me one use for them is for typing in an office. I have never heard of that in my life, but I’m a nurse so the only gloves I know are latex lol

    I just got my box and I cannot figure out how to open the diffuser bottle. Has anyone gotten it to open? It has this weird plastic thing that is cemented directly onto the bottle. I can’t tell if I just have a defective bottle or if I’m totally missing someting. I’m thinking of taking an electric wine opener to it but hoping there is an easier way.

      That seems to be how diffusers are sealed. Take a pair of scissors and put the blades under the lip of the seal. And then kind of pull it up carefully.

    This is my fave FFF box ever and in the top 10 or so of boxes overall. Every single thing is so useful and nice. Not to mention the quality is good on the choices. I am shamelessly ordered a third box at the $37 promo last night. I got the first one at $10 off and the second at $5 off with the gorgeous earrings. The only things I’ll be swapping is one pair of the earbuds and 2 of the wine sets. I love diffusers and the lotion is one I’ve actually had on my Birchbox list since I tried a sample. It smells and feels so luxe. And I always need gloves and I love the style and details on these. Nice review as always.

    Im only disappointed that there is no fitness item this month…youd think with new years resolutions especially, theyd have had *something* fitness related?
