Beauty Fix Subscription Box Review – April 2015
Beauty Fix is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box from Dermstore.com. This subscription was previously known as the Blush Mystery Beauty Box. I’m not sure yet exactly what the differences will mean, so I’ll give a better summary once we are a few boxes in!

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included with pictures.
DHC Deep Cleansing Oil – FULL SIZE! Value $28
I love that this item alone is worth more than the cost of the box! This is one of those cult classic items I’ve always wanted to try, and from what I read it is great at removing makeup.
Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Moisturizer – FULL SIZE! Value $45
I’m considering buying a second box this month just because of these first two items! I love Juice Beauty – all their products are organic and work well for my skin. Plus I love the apple scent!
FYI: Juice Beauty’s Green Apple is not designed for very sensitive or rosacea skin due to the alpha/beta hydroxy fruit acids.
One Love Organics Healthy Locks Dry Shampoo Powder -17 g Value $9
I love the One Love Organics brand, and I really like the scent of this dry shampoo powder. One word of caution though – a lot comes out when you shake it. (It has one of those salt shaker type openings).
Dermstore Lip Quench Sheer Tints in Coral – FULL SIZE! Value $12
I had no idea Dermstore made their own makeup! Since this is described as a sheer tint, I wasn’t expecting much pigment, but it has a lot of color. The formula isn’t sticky at all, and the finish isn’t exactly matte or glossy – somewhere in between. Also (and this will sound really weird) but the scent of this lip tint smells exactly like the candle section of Ikea to me.
Laura Geller Baked Liquid Radiance Foundation – .16 oz Value $6
Based on the info card, all subscribers will receive the Golden Medium shade. This shade is way too dark/orange for me, but I like the formula. (It’s always a bummer when subscription boxes send out skin tone specific foundation/bb cream/concealer etc.)
Sunday Riley Good Genes Serum and Treatment – 2 ml Value $7
It took about 40 pumps to finally get the serum out of the sample tester, and the smell of this serum bothers me. I guess even the tiniest sample is good for figuring out if you can handle the scent of the skin care product!
Ren Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask – .5 oz Value $16
This mask gets great reviews on Sephora – I can’t wait to try it. (It’s free of parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrance, etc).
Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels (1 set) – Value $3.75
These are free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, synthetic fragrance, synthetic dye, etc. I received two sets of these in my March ipsy bag, so it’s time to start using them!
Verdict: The value of this box is about $127. That is an incredible value for $25, and I’m even more impressed due to the brands included. I also am thrilled with the two full-size skincare items this month. Hopefully, all future boxes are this good for Beauty Fix!
