Each box comes with a card detailing the items included with pictures.
Dr. Hauschka Night Serum – FULL SIZE! Value $60
WOW! I don’t think I’ve ever received a full-size Dr. Hauschka item in a box before! And a serum just makes it that much better! And I’m a fan of this brand – it’s one of those natural beauty brands that I’m always thrilled to see in a box.
This serum is a lightweight, oil-free formula. Even though it was lightweight, it took a few minutes to dry completely on my face. (At first, I was worried it was going to have a slightly tacky finish, but completely absorbed after a few minutes.) And I found it to be gentle on my skin, too!
Glytone Acne Treatment Spray – Back and Chest – 2 oz Value $20
While this item isn’t a fit for my skincare needs, I think it is a smart inclusion for the summertime. I’ll be passing this along.
Neova Cu3 Intensive Lip Repair – FULL SIZE! Value $22
This lip balm is moisturizing and it leaves a light shine. I would never pay $22 for a clear lip balm no matter how great it is, but I’m always happy to get one at deep discount in a subscription box!
DS Laboratories Oligo.DX Cellulite Reducing Gel – FULL SIZE! Value $39
I’m always up for trying anything that fights cellulite, so I gave this a try immediately. Unlike most other cellulite treatment lotions I’ve tried, with this one, you don’t have to massage it into your skin. The other difference is that you can’t use other lotions/products where ever you apply it.
I think that’s a bit of the challenge for me in self-tanner season, so I may end up saving this for fall/winter.
The formula itself is good. The lotion absorbed almost immediately, and the scent was faint.
Avene Micellar Lotion – FULL SIZE! Value $20
This Micellar water is a cleanser/toner/makeup-remover in one. I was most interested in its makeup removing properties, so I decided to test it on a full face of makeup, then follow up with my regular makeup remover wipes to see if anything was left behind. I used it on a cotton pad and I’d say it removed 95% of all makeup – the rest I had to get with a Foreo and cleanser.
I’m impressed! Plus, it was very gentle on my skin. This is a keeper!
Danielle Creations Therapeutic Gel Beads Eye Mask – Value $10
The gel mask is designed to be used hot (10 seconds in the microwave) or cold (2 hours in the refrigerator).
I decided to try it in heated and I liked it! It was really comforting – my only issue is the elastic strap. It was a little tight even at the loosest fitting. (I have the same issues with hats, though, so that probably won’t be an issue for most people!)
UPDATE – I forgot this picture for the review!
This blemish dots are clear gel stickers that allow you to target individual blemishes to reduce redness and inflamation. You can wear them for a few hours or even overnight. They are free of any ingredients you might want to avoid (parabens, etc.) and they didn’t irritate my skin.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $176! Amazing! I love that everything is either full-sized or deluxe-sized, too! 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. (I was actually surprised to see no haircare, this month!)
