Each box comes with a card detailing the items included with pictures.
Derma Cellular Collagen Booster Cream by Doctor Babor – 15 ml Value $46.20
This cream left my skin feeling incredibly soft and smooth – and I didn’t mind the fragrance at all. This sample is a pretty good size too (a little over 1/4 of the full size). Here it is with the foil off:
Another formula that made my skin feel amazingly smooth! Kind of unfortunate that the full-size version is $178, but I’ll enjoy this sample while I have it!
Pure Hydration Hyaluronic Acid Serum by Replenix – 8.35 ml Value $19.30
This formula is a little more gel-like than I was expecting. (Usually with serums, the formula has an oil base.) I applied this right after the shower when my skin is most sensitive, and I had no issues! The gel formula is a little tacky for a few minutes. (I may have just put on a little too much, though.)
Beauty Blender Micro Mini – Value $9
This beauty blender is SO tiny! It’s great for precision in applying foundation around my eye area and around my nostrils.
Anthelios 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid by La Roche-Posay – 3 ml Value $1.35
This is a tiny sample – probably good for only one use, but it was enough for me to be impressed with the formula. It does exactly what it promises – goes on super light and absorbs almost instantly. No greasy sunscreen feel!
And here is a better photo to show just how tiny the Beauty Blender Mini is:
glotherapeutics Vital Eye Cream – FULL SIZE! Value $40
Yay for full-size eye creams! This one was very gentle and hydrating – so I’m thrilled to have the full-size version.
Avene Mineral Ultra-light Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50+ – FULL SIZE! Value $28
I was surprised that 1.3 ounces is considered full-size with this sunscreen, but I’ll take it! Since we have two “ultra light” sunscreens in this box, I couldn’t help but compare them, and I think the La Roche-Posay version is the “lightest,” but both are good. Plus, SPF is pricey, so I love getting as many samples as I can in subscription boxes before summer starts!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $155! I think BeautyFix almost always delivers a great value compared to the cost, and they did that again this month. If you are looking for a variety of types of items, this box may not be for you, but if you love a skincare heavy box, this is an A+!
