FabFitFun Fall 2021 Unboxing + a Code to Get a Box for 40% Off!

Hi, guys! I just received my FabFitFun Fall 2021 box and it's unboxing time! There were a lot of great products included this season and I'll show you what I chose for my box. I've also got a discount code so you can get a FabFitFun box for yourself for 40% off! Let's get to it!

To recap, FabFitFun is a seasonal subscription box filled with the best in beauty, wellness, home, fashion, and fitness and everything is full-sized. You can see all of my past FabFitFun spoiler and unboxing posts here.

My box ended up being worth $339 this season. Depending on what you chose during box customizations, your box value could be higher or lower than mine.

One of the newest changes is that annual members are able to customize the whole box (no more FFF picks) and seasonal members will get to choose 4 categories instead of 3. Also, there are now a total of 6 categories instead of 5 with the last being the previous FFF picks. In the 6th category you can choose 3 smaller-ticket items, 2 more expensive items, or 1 high-value item. It's pretty cool!

If you added on anything in the Add-On Sale or during box customization, your seasonal box and extras will come in a big shipping box. If you didn't get extras, the pretty FFF box alone will arrive at your door.

Now let's unbox it! 

The box includes a magazine every season with information about all of the products, interviews, tips, and member's-only discount codes. 

Every season they choose a new charity to partner with and this season's charity is Art in Action, who provides nationally recognized art education curricula to approximately 80,000 K-8 students nationwide. FabFitFun will give 100% of all donations made in FabFitFun's e-commerce sales between 7/27/21 and 10/22/21 to Art in Action and will match all donations up to $100,000.

The back cover of the magazine contains all of the info for this season's contest. Share pics of your box on social media with the specified tags and hashtags and you'll be in the running to win a 5-day all-inclusive trip to the Paradisus Playa del Carmen in Mexico!

First out of the box is customization item #1. 

I chose the Uncommon James Set of 2 Copper Canisters ($49 value). The medium and large canisters include wooden lids to add a rustic touch to any space. NOTE: These are being sold on the Uncommon James site for $75, not the $49 FFF-listed value!!!

This category was such a tough choice! I ended up getting these canisters that were a throwback because I didn't get them the first time around and regretted it. They're so pretty and I'm happy with my choice! I only wish I had added on the blanket and the Amika duo. Oh, well.

Next is customization item #2. 

I chose the Coach Open Circle Necklace and Tea Rose Stud Set ($125 value). This delicate necklace and earring set in rose gold-plated brass is a must-have for any jewelry lover.

I usually choose the jewelry (if offered) and out of the whole box, I was probably most excited about these. They are really beautiful, but my earring backs got bent pretty badly in shipping. I contacted FFF's Customer Service and they'll be shipping me a new set.

Next is customization item #3. 

I chose the Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Pore Minimizing Primer ($32 value). This silky, lightweight face primer minimizes the appearance of pores and helps makeup last all day.

I was pretty meh about this category. Not because there weren't any great items, but because I had the jumprope and classes all picked out and found out they were an MLM. That means that the poor instructor in my area would have to give me free classes and wouldn't get paid by the company. I couldn't choose that one in good conscience. Also, I chose 2 hair masks in another category, don't need another bag, and am maxed out on travel cups, so another primer it is.

Next is customization item #4. 

I chose the ELEMIS Papaya Enzyme Peel ($45 value). Natural fruit enzymes blended with milk protein help smooth and moisturize the skin.

This was another tough choice, but if an Elemis product is available, I'm probably going to choose it. Elemis is rather pricey sometimes and this peel sounds amazing. Even though it will leave me with 2 masks in this box, I'm so happy to get this one!

Next is customization item #5. 

I chose the Purlisse Pumpkin + Ginger Detoxifying Charcoal Mask ($48 value). All you need is 10 minutes to instantly brighten your skin and improve your skin texture.

Purlisse is another skincare company that I like so I'm glad to get to try this. I would have loved to try that Voesh Pedi in a Box but they only had the Pumpkin Spice scent this time around. Hey, Pumpkin Spice is delish but I don't want to go around smelling like it. 🤷‍♀️

Last out is customization #6. 

I chose the (not in order above) Bundle #4: Fekkai Maskology Bundle ($40 value) and received the Super Strength Treatment Roots To Ends Mask & the Technician Color Treatment Powerful Flash MaskThis is the ultimate hair duo for damaged strands that also need extra vibrancy and hydration.

Fekkai is another of the brands that I will grab in a box if I can. I've had nothing but good experiences with their products so I'm happy to be able to try these out.

I also received a tiny Heiney! I had heard that some people were receiving samples in their boxes and I got a little can of 0% alcohol Heineken to try.

So, that was the FabFitFun Fall 2021 box and even though it wasn't my favorite, it was pretty darn good. There were fewer meh categories than last season and I'm happy with my box. 

The price of the box is far less than the value of the items you receive, which is something you should look for in a subscription box. These are always curated nicely for the season. I've been subscribed for 3 years and have loved the majority of the boxes so far.

I only wish they would organize the categories the way they used to (1 for home items, 1 for beauty items, 1 for fashion, etc.). I ended up with 2 face masks and could have ended up with 3 hair masks if I didn't settle for the face primer. They're all excellent products, though, so it's hard to complain!

Discount Codes (as of 9/7/21). I will add new codes as I find them!
