Each box comes with a card detailing the items included with pictures.
Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream – .5 oz Value $40
I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with this cream! My main issue is that it has a powdery/floral fragrance, and I like my skincare scents neutral or non-existent. The scent had me ready to write it off, but then I noticed my smile lines were pretty much gone after I had applied it. So at least on my first try, it seems like the hydrating, wrinkle diminishing features work!
And to be fair, the scent faded pretty quickly!
Supersmile Mini-Professional Whitening System – .42 oz total Value $5.80
This system is an accelerator (gel) and toothpaste (no surprise – paste). You put both on the same toothbrush and brush your teeth like you regularly would! I’ve tried Supersmile before and I like it – I haven’t noticed a crazy difference in the whiteness of my teeth, though. So this is something I am happy to use when I get in a subscription box, but not a product I have ever paid full retail for.
LumaRx Detail Trimmer – Value $19
This is one of those items like tweezers that I always keep in my medicine cabinet! It’s great for keeping eyebrow hair, peach fuzz, etc. in check!
Here it is with the trimmer attachment:
I couldn’t get the LED light part to work, but if I’m tweezing or trimming my eyebrows, I am already doing that with as much lighting as possible, so – not a deal breaker!
Laura Geller New York Pout Perfection Waterproof Lip Liner in Cabernet – FULL SIZE! Value $18
(Subscribers will receive this in Fawn, Buff, or Cabernet)
This shade is a little on the bold side for me, but I like that it pushed me out of my comfort zone. (I’m usually in the neutral zone for lip colors.) The pigment is great, and the staying power is impressive too – it passed the eating test!
Here it is on:
(It is a matte finish and a little drying, so I used a clear lip balm before taking this photo.)
Keranique Lift and Repair Treatment Spray – FULL SIZE! Value $18
I love a hair volume product that you can use on both damp or dry hair, and this one meets that requirement! (They recommend spraying on the roots of your damp hair, then blow-drying, but you can also use it as a touch-up product throughout the day.)
I tried this on dry hair and I was pretty liberal with applying the product. At first, that gave my hair a little stiffness, but I brushed it a bit and then got back to the level where I could easily run my fingers through my hair.
It also has a really refreshing minty scent – which I wasn’t expecting from a hair product, but I liked!
Erno Laszlo Hydraphel Skin Supplement Lotion – 15 ml Value $4
I think the best thing about this toner is that it really doesn’t have a scent. If you are looking for a toner that doesn’t have the typical alcohol smell, I would recommend this one. Other than that, I didn’t see/feel much of a difference after applying, so I’m not sold on this product, yet!
MDSolarSciences Daily Eye Repair Emulsion – 5 ml Value $27.30
This is another stand-out product in the box for me! The gel almost melts into your skin the moment you apply it, and it is fragrance-free! This is 1/3 the size of the full size version, too. It should last me a few weeks!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $132! 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 good mix of skincare and haircare products with the occasional beauty item, I highly recommend this box.
