Each box comes with a card detailing the items included with pictures.
Karuna Age-Defying Hand Mask – Value $9
I’ve never tried a hand mask before, so I had to give this a try as soon as I opened the box. You just put on the gloves for 10-20 minutes, then remove the gloves and massage any remaining product into your skin. (Visual instruction picture below).
My hands were super soft immediately after using. My husband Eric even told me they were “almost freakishly soft” so that’s high praise… I think? A day later and I think my hands are back to normal, but I do notice that my cuticles are much more moisturized than usual!
Peter Thomas Roth Acne-Clear Invisible Dots – (12 dots) Value $6
These clear stickers are made with salicylic acid, and designed to help reduce and heal blemishes while protecting the affected area to minimize the spread of bacteria. I like this idea – especially the part that helps prevent me from accidently touching a pimple and making it worse! One thing to call out – these are clear, but not invisible. So they work for overnight use, but not going out in public!
DS Laboratories Revita LT – High-Performance Hair Stimulating Shampoo – 3.4 oz (Travel Size) Value $30
This is some serious packaging! I feel like it belongs in a fitness supplement subscription box! Here it is out of the box:
And more from the company on what this shampoo does:
Completely safe for light and dark color-treated hair— Revita is a cutting-edge shampoo designed to stimulate hair while protecting existing hair from falling/thinning.
Ideal for men and women, this revitalizing hair treatment nourishes the hair and scalp with amino acids, strengthening the hair shaft for enhanced vitality. Antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients are employed in the fight against pollutants and chemicals that can lead to damaged hair and prevent healthy growth. Revita gives your hair and scalp the benefits needed for fuller, thicker, healthier looking hair.
I would say BeautyFix sends out more hair growth products than any other beauty box I subscribe to. This isn’t something I need currently, so I’ll be passing it along to somone else.
Tarina Tarantino Pearl Glow Luminizing Primer – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $32 (On Sale for $19)
This primer has a very subtle pearlescence finish – so subtle that if you wear a full-coverage foundation like I do you won’t see it. That’s fine with me since it works as a regular primer, and on days when I go light with just a BB cream, it will show a bit. (One thing to mention – the first few pumps that came out were completely clear liquid. I recommend mixing it a little bit before using, or just discarding the first few pumps.)
ARCONA Magic White Ice Hydrate – 10 ml Value $12
If you are looking for a lightweight moisturizer, this is a gel-formula that absorbs almost immediately. (And it is made with cranberry extract, so it has a nice berry scent!)
Medicell Labs Hydrating Calming Facial Mist – 1 oz Value $14
This mist is refreshing and gentle! The mist nozzle itself isn’t as even and fine as some facial mists I’ve tried, so I recommend using a greater distance from your face than you might use with other mists.
Danielle Creations Chrome Mini Mirror – Value $15
This is a quality mirror, but it is SO tiny! Here it is with an iPhone 6+ to give a better sense of scale:
I guess this would be useful for travel. (Or it could work as a gift to an American Girl!).
June Jacobs Papaya Purifying Enzyme Masque – .5 oz Value $8.40
This mask is paraben-free, and it has an amazing papaya scent! My skin has been extra dry/sensitive lately, but I was able to use this mask without any irritation. And my skin is now super soft and smooth, so I think I will use this every week!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $113 (using the discounted price of the primer). I think BeautyFix almost always delivers a great value compared to the cost, and I appreciate the variety of items this month, and all the sample sizes are good too! My favorite item this month is the June Jacobs mask, but I think I’ll use everything besides the shampoo.
