Can't believe all the issues I had with this box. First of all, four boxes is $180USD and their web application does not let you add the 10% coupon to the purchase if you live outside the United States. Then they additionally charge you $32USD for shipping even though it states all over their site that shipping is free. Not to mention that unless you call and cancel your subscription it will automatically renew you for another year even if you have never got a box. How do you know I want another year when I haven't even received a box from this year?
Also it doesn't tell you that in order to get all four seasons (one year's worth of boxes) you have to subscribe (sign up) in March of that year. I signed up in December thinking that it was for the next year. Nope. They sent me last year's editorial box. Who wants that box? It's contents were displayed all over social media and the FabFitFun website. No surprises there.
Further, they sent out an e-mail stating that it was the last day to add and add-on to your box. Well I did not see the print underneath that said if you click here, you will be automatically renewed for another year! All I wanted to do was view the add-on's. 20 emails and 3 phone calls later and everything has been sorted out.
Yesterday the first of four has arrived!
The Spring box has:
- Gypsy Roundie,
- Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioner,
- Milky Zip Pouch,
- Dr.Brandt Microdermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator,
- Karuna Hydrating+ Face Mask,
- Realher Lip Kit in Deep Nude,
- Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish Set in Blue Orchid/Like a Virgin and
- Luv AJ Diamond Kit Crawler Earring Set.
I also had a chance to google the Spring 2017 boxes and found that some members received vitamin gummies and that you go to pick your colour of roundie, lip pack and between the earrings or the bracelet. Since I had so many issues, I was afraid to sign in in case it reactivated anything. However I answered questions so they have some idea of what I like, and I wanted the box to be a surprise like the Ipsy bags I receive.
With US exchange I paid $70CDN for this box and received $374USD worth of stuff. I have not had a chance to try anything yet, but what do you think? Cost of the box aside, was it worth it? Would you sign up?
