Each box comes with a card detailing the items included with pictures.
Deva Curl 3-Step Introduction Kit: No-Poo (1 oz Value $3), One Condition (1 oz Value $3), Light Defining Gel (1 oz Value $3)
My hair is naturally wavy/a little curly, and I usually end up straightening it, but I would like to see it more evenly curly, so I’m excited to try this kit. (I also like that it is paraben, phthalate, and sulfate free!)
Harry Josh Professional Styling Clips – Value $10
These clips are sold for $15 for 3, so the value of these is technically $10, but seeing them in a free gift bag kind of takes away from that value! These still are probably my favorite item in the box though – they are excellent at clipping and holding a lot of hair, and the rubberized texture of the clips makes them an improvement over the other hair clips I own.
Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask – 10 ml Value $5.40
This is a foam mask that only takes 5 minutes to work. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to sample this since I’m allergic to one of the ingredients (Red 40) – it will be gifted or donated
Vichy Purete Thermale 3-In-1 Cleansing Solution – 1 oz – Value $2.50
This is an alcohol-free cleansing solution – you put a small amount on a cotton pad and use it to remove makeup, cleanse skin, etc. I found it to be very gentle on my skin, and I like the scent too.
Erno Laszlo Firmarine Face Bar – .6 oz Value $2.80
This soap has a wonderful fresh scent – but it is so tiny! (The full size version is 5 oz).
Dermstore Lip Quench – FULL SIZE! Value $12
Glo Minerals Lash Boosting Mascara – FULL SIZE! Value $19.50
Finally some full-size items! I was expecting this Lip Quench to be a clear balm, but it actually is a pale pink shimmery balm/gloss. I like the formula – it isn’t sticky at all, and it provides a natural looking amount of shimmer and shine.
The mascara is pretty good too. The formula provides a significant amount of length with no clumping – the resulting look is very natural. I prefer a little more volume, so this isn’t my favorite mascara, but I still like it.
SkinMedica Replenish Hydrating Cream – .25 oz Value $8
SkinCeutical Metacell Renewal B3 – Sample (size not listed)
SkinCeutical Reservatrol B E – Sample (size not listed)
I’m disappointed in these sample sizes, but I really like the Replenish Hydrating Cream formula – it left my skin feeling incredibly smooth!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $70 (not counting the two SkinCeutical samples). I’m not too happy with the box this month. BeautyFix usually sends out a lot of full and deluxe sized items each month, so this box just feels like a lot of small samples by comparison. I still like almost all of the products, I just have come to expect more from this subscription in terms of value and product size.
