FabFitFun is a personal wellness company that creates beauty subscription boxes containing eight to ten personalized products.
Although most famous for the subscription box, the company also runs FabFitFun TV, which streams video tutorials and videos that promote a healthy lifestyle.
FabFitFun was founded in 2010 by Katie Rosen Kitchens, Daniel Broukhim, and Michael Broukhim, but they didn’t start shipping out the iconic FabFitFun box until 2013.
Since 2013, FabFitFun’s number of customers has increased by an impressive amount. In 2013, when they first shipped out the FabFitFun box, FabFitFun had 2,000 subscribers. Now, they have over 350,000 subscribers.

FabFitFun is a subscription-based program.
Customers can choose either the annual membership or seasonal membership.
The annual membership costs an annual fee of $179.99, or $45 per box (as of June 2021). Each annual member receives four boxes each year (one per season).
Plus, each annual member has access to FabFitFun TV, earlier shipping, first access to item customization, and early access to add-ons and edit sales.
The annual membership fee is charged at full price when the subscription renews for the next annual term.
With the seasonal membership, subscribers pay for each box individually. Each seasonal member can choose when they want the next box and can skip boxes if they would like.
The cost for each individual FabFitFun box with the seasonal membership is $49.99 (as of June 2021). The seasonal subscription does not offer early shipping, first access to customization, or early access to add-ons and edit sales.
When starting the process of subscribing to FabFitFun, you will have to choose which subscription you want. Then you will need to enter your shipping and payment information.
Don’t forget to apply a promo code or a coupon if you have one!
After entering your information, you will take an in-depth quiz covering topics about your skin type, skin color, hobbies, and other personal preferences and lifestyle questions.
After that, you will have the option to customize your FabFitFun box!
Each FabFitFun seasonal member is allowed to customize three products in the subscription box while supplies last. FabFitFun annual members are allowed to customize up to five products.
The rest of the products are surprises, hand-selected by the FabFitFun team for each annual and seasonal member.
FabFitFun promises an easy cancellation process any time, so if at any point you decide not to continue your subscription, you can just go to this link on the website and follow the prompts.
Just remember that you won’t receive a refund for an already-purchased box, and you must cancel before a new term begins. Otherwise, you will be charged for another term.
All the items in a FabFitFun box are full size. They are never trial size.
The boxes and products are designed for the season. In the spring, you receive a spring box full of spring colors and items. In the winter, you receive a winter box with wintery products, etc.
Before each seasonal box is shipped, they post a box spoiler on their Instagram page with the items you can customize. Check out the box spoiler for summer 2021!

Is it worth the money?
Short answer? Yes! Keep reading to see why.
In every box, you get eight to ten products. Each product in the first customization (that all members get to do) costs well above the price of one FabFitFun box. They range from about $80–$120, and members still get seven more products in the box!
The rest of the items are not as pricey as the first customization, but when added up, the cost well exceeds the price of one FabFitFun box.
Plus, the beauty and cosmetics are always full-size, and some of them can be expensive.
Of course, there is the concern that some of the products will just sit in your closet and never be used.
While this is certainly a valid concern and definitely something that could happen, it’s still worth the money.
Since even seasonal customers can customize up to three items, you can at least guarantee you’ll love three of the items.
And if you don’t end up loving the others, just save them for gifts. Someone will love them!
