FabFitFun is a quarterly subscription box that sends full-size versions of the seasons top fitness, fashion, beauty, and wellness products. Each box is about $50 if you subscribe month-to-month and slightly less if you select an annual subscription. While the FabFitFun box is not tailored specifically to each subscriber based on their preferences, I've found that subscription boxes that send the same products to all subscribers tend to select better products that they know everyone will enjoy.


S'ip By S'well - Retail $19.99


Deux Lux: Demi Backpack - Retail $75.

As an annual subscriber, FabFitFun allows you to choose most of the products you'll receive rather than it being at random. For this box, they asked me to choose between the robe and this backpack and I just couldn’t decide! So, I caved and got both for an additional $10. Worth it :)


Products Mentioned:

Box Faves:

  • Deux Lu Backpack: As I mentioned before, I just couldn't pick between the backpack and the robe and I'm so glad I didn't. I have another small backpack that I've used to pieces so this one is going straight into my regular rotation!

  •  Show Me Your Mumu Robe: I have a fluffy, super warm bathrobe that has served me well for many years (think showering in a shared bathroom in my college dorm days - definitely don't miss that!), however, I've been on the lookout for a lighter robe that I can wear around the house. This robe is beautiful yet also super functional. My only gripe is that I wish it was a silkier material!

Box Flops: 

  • S'well Water Bottle: I hate to say this because I'm obsessed with water bottles (weird, I know) but the S'well water bottle was just middle of the line for me. I think I was swayed to choose the bottle because of all the hype surrounding the S'well brand but I have a lot of water bottles that are comparable quality that are probably sold at a lower price point. I was also a bit disappointed in the design I received since S'well has some really unique patterns that I would definitely have preferred over a solid purple one!


I am always impressed by my FabFitFun boxes but this spring box was probably an all time fave. I loved nearly everything I received and all of the add-ons, too. They know how to get you!

How did you all feel about these products? Any other boxes you think I should try or you’d like to see me review? I’d love to hear from you!


PopSugar Must Have vs. FabFitFun: Winter 2018 Box!

This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for supporting my blog! :)

Good morning, everyone! I’m excited to be sharing my thoughts on the winter PopSugar Must Have and FabFitFun boxes today :) If you’re curious about how these two quarterly boxes compare to one another, stay tuned! 


PopSugar Must Have

The PopSugar Must Have box is a $75/box quarterly subscription that includes full-size fashion, beauty, fitness, and lifestyle items. This summer’s box focused on products that will help you unwind and relax! 


Box Faves:

  • Ellia Essential Oil Roll-on: I was so excited to receive this product because I’ve been exploring essential oils as a way to reduce anxiety. Every since starting graduate school, I’ve noticed my anxiety flaring up and using essential oils is one way I’m trying to stop anxiety in its tracks! This on-the-go roller will make bringing my essential oils around so much easier!

  • Kate Spade Calendar: I’m a little obsessed with all things planner, calendar, and organization related. This Kate Spade calendar is classy and is working its magic bringing a little liveliness to my boring office desk!

Box Flops:

  • Honestly? I don’t have any particular flops to share because I wasn’t really thrilled with anything else in the box! While the rest of the box included some stunning products, most of it was stuff I didn’t really feel like I needed or wanted!


FabFitFun is a quarterly subscription box that sends full-size versions of the seasons top fitness, fashion, beauty, and wellness products. Each box is about $50 if you subscribe month-to-month and slightly less if you select an annual subscription.


Box Faves:

  • Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick: Hands down my favorite of the box :) I love a good lipstick and Bite does an amazing lipstick. Every lipstick I have from Bite has easily become a favorite because of their amazing formula (perfect mix between moisturizing + decent staying power)!

  • Bearpaw Headband and Glove Duo: I didn't think this was going to be one of my favorites but I've continued to reach for this headband and glove duo over and over again!

Box Flops:

  • Anthropolie x Mer-Sea Body Cream: I really wanted to like this body cream, but the scent was just too much for me - I swear you can smell it from 2 rooms over if I put even a tiny bit on my hands!

  • Thrive Causemetics Eye Brightener: This was a flop for me because I already own this product and hardly *ever* use it! Although the formula of the product goes on really smoothly, this eye brightener doesn't really show up much on my skin, so I think I'll be gifting it to someone else!

The winner: FabFitFun

This season, there was a clear winner for me - so much so that I actually cancelled my subscription for the must have box! (sorry popsugar!). As much as I used to love the PopSugar box, I’ve found that the new quarterly box format really wasn’t for me. Although the products they select are now higher quality and always nice to have, I’ve found that the box no longer really fits my life at the moment. I’m at a point in my life where I’m trying to be more intentional about the things I buy and I’ve found that most of the products I receive from my PopSugar box don’t really see much use :( so unfortunately, you won’t see any more PopSugar reviews from me (for now!).

I will, however, be continuing my subscription to FabFitFun! I still find myself using most of my FabFitFun products and love how it seems to predict my needs and interests well! I think a huge part of this is the fact that, as an annual subscriber, I'm able to choose a lot of what I receive in the box. Although this does mean I'm not *as* surprised when I receive the items, it's still a surprise getting to see what items I can choose from! I love being able to choose what I receive because oftentimes, I'll go for an item that I really need or one that I don't already have!

What did you think of your subscription boxes this month? Do you prefer PopSugar or FabFitFun? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
