Is FabFitFun Worth it for Women Over 40?

One question I get a lot is if I think FabFitFun is worth it for women over 40!

I sort of (and by that I mean absolutely) have an obsession with subscription boxes. I won’t even tell you how many I get, but I love them. They have made my life so much easier (I hate shopping but I love having things) and I have discovered so many great products that I never would have tried otherwise. And, they are always a bargain. Even if there’s something in the box that I don’t want or personally like, I can always find a friend (or a teenager who lives in my house) who will want it.

With that being said, what about FabFitFun, specifically? Is FabFitFun worth it for women over 40?

Of course FabFitFun is worth it (I’m sure you knew I’d say that.) I know that a lot of you have seen the boxes online, being opened up and “revealed” by younger celebrities and YouTu-lebrities, and Insta-celebrities, and you are probably thinking that it’s for a younger crowd. Especially since it’s priced at only $49.99 for a big box of goodies, but I think it’s great for us over 40s.



Why Is FabFitFun Worth it?

FabFitFun is a box that curated for women and full of beauty, wellness, fashion, and household items. Each season they send you a box full of goodies, chosen specifically for women. They box normally costs $49.99, but I have a coupon (of course, because I love coupons!) Use this link and coupon code HEATWAVE to save $10 off! So for, $39.99, you’ll get a box full of great stuff that’s guaranteed to have a retail value of over $200.

It’s a Fantastic Value

The number 1 reason is because it’s really affordable, and because, as I said, I’ve got a coupon for you! Use this link and coupon code HEATWAVE to save $10 off! Regularly $49.99 a box. My last box was filled with awesomeness that was valued at $350!

I'm really excited about the summer box. They've already released some spoilers (see below) and I think this will be the best box yet.



They Offer Customization

They now let you customize more of the products in your box than ever! With subscription boxes, you used to get whatever you got, but now you can customize and choose the products that work best for you and your lifestyle, making FabFitFun even more worth it for women over 40. Based on the spoilers for the FabFitFun Summer Box, I’m going to have a hard time choosing (and I already know that I’m going to get at least 2 boxes!)




Discovering New Products

My favorite reason for belonging to so many subscription boxes is being introduced to products and lines that I would not have sought out on my own. Many of my now favorite beauty, fashion, and household products and brands have been discovered through my subscription boxes, especially through FabFitFun. They regularly feature brands I love such as Elemis, Forero Fofo, Tulsa, Grown Alchemist, Tribe Alive, Sol de Janeiro, and so many more. And, of course, you get to try these regularly pricey brands for a fraction of their retail costs.

This lets you get items that would normally be “splurge” type items, or even products that you would usually skip over because they are out of your price range. I have been able to try so many high-cost items cheaply with FabFitFun. And, since the boxes contain wellness and beauty products such as face masks, salt baths, and essential oils, it’s a great excuse to give yourself a little pampering. And, we all deserve some pampering. Remember, one of the mottos here at 40yearflip is that self care is not selfish. Self care is essential.

The Edit and Add On Sales

With every box, they also run a sale that’s private and available only to FabFitFun members. This is where I buy ALL of my beauty and personal items that I don’t get in a subscription box. The prices are always amazing and they offer a wide variety of brands and goods. With the last sale, they had a wide variety of products from free samples of jarred pesto to thousand(s) dollar couches and beds, and everything in between.

Also, with the edit sales, they often feature brands that have been in current and past boxes, so if you try a product and love it, you can usually pick it up again at a great discount in an edit sale, rather than going to the mall and paying full price.




The Products are Worth It

Even though you are only spending $49.99 ($39.99 with this link and code HEATWAVE for 40yearflip friends) the products are worth so much more. Like I mentioned earlier, my last box was valued at $350. The value of the box varies based on your customization as some products have a higher retail value than others. So, at that price, if one of the products isn’t your favorite, it’s still a great value. FabFitFun guarantees that every box has a retail value of over $200.


I'm really excited about the summer box. They've already released some spoilers and I think this will be the best box yet. Here are some of the products you can choose from for your box during the customization period:
