I am so excited! I cannot believe this day is finally here. This is the day that I finally get to review my first ever FabFitFun box. You have no idea just how long I have been waiting for this opportunity.
Ever since my favourite beauty box has been removed from the UK market, I have been looking for a new one to replace that void. I finally found it in the FabFitFun box.
For this of you who are not aware, FabFitFun is an American seasonal subscription box that caters to beauty, fitness and lifestyle lovers. If this is the first time you’ve encountered the box or you simply want to learn more, then I recommend you read my article on everything you need to know before you continue reading this review.
Without further ado, here it is, the review of the Summer 2019 edition of the much coveted FabFitFun box.
FabFitFun Summer 2019
I ordered the box as soon as I found out about it. However, I ordered it past the second billing date so I have to admit that I was quite nervous as I was not sure when I would be getting my box. Luckily, I qualified for the second shipment date which was at the end of June. I really could not wait any more to get my hands on the pretty box. I was so curious!
I might have not received the box in time for my birthday, but I did get it in around 7 days from dispatch. I was quite impressed by the speed and reliability of their service.
Since the taxes and whatnot were already paid, there was no delay at customs and the box was delivered by the local courier with no issues.
The box itself used to be pretty, that much is clear. I said used to, as the box was delivered without any additional card boxes to protect it so the beautifully printed box was pretty dirty on the outside. However, the content arrived in perfect condition and there was no signs of tear.
Even one of the products which was in spray form came in out piece which is saying something given that my last two shipments (from other brands) were ruined.
While usually a customer receives between 8 and 10 full sized products, I received 9 and I am incredibly happy about it.
I received all the products that I got the chance to select. If you want to learn more about how selection works, then I recommend you read my article on FabFitFun boxes which covers everything you need to know about the service.
Everything that I received in my box is pictured above. The total value of the box was that of $452 or approximately £360. Personally, I am more than happy with the content of the box and the value I got for my money. It is rare that I am happy with the products that have been chosen for me, but in this case they are all products that I intent to use.

The products that I got to choose are the Sol de Janeiro Set, the 24K Rose Gold Masks and the necklace. The first two I picked out as I have already used the products before and I know how good they are. They are also products that always on my shopping list, particularly the Sol de Janeiro ones so it was a no brainer. Furthermore, I was not interested in the other products that I could have picked instead, thus the reason why I did not add any of them as add-ons.
Overall, I could not be any happier with the FabFitFun box. It is exactly right my alley and I am sure to remain subscribed for a while. I am actually considering switching to an annual subscription as it is that good! Not only did I got significant value for my money, but I also liked every single item in the box.
Furthermore, this is a great opportunity to indulge in some foreign beauty products that I could have not ordered otherwise without incurring high delivery fees or at least tax charges for each parcel. While all the products from brands that are not available in the UK do deliver to the UK, they do so with either high delivery fees and/or VAT taxes charged upon arrival. Taxes charged upon arrival are always higher as they also include a Royal Mail handling fee.
