Each box comes with a card detailing the items included with pictures.

Now, on to the items!

Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive – FULL SIZE! Value $42

I love Juice Beauty products – they’re organic, gentle on my skin, and usually smell great, too. (Based on the comments I read on MSA, it seems like people either love or hate Juice Beauty!)

To use this peel, you apply a generous layer to a clean face and let it sit for 10 minutes, then remove. It left my skin feeling soft and moisturized, and over time it is designed to help reduce the appearance of dark spots and discoloration with alpha hydroxy acids.

Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial (5ml) – Value $8

Another alpha hydroxy acids item! This facial is designed to brighten complexion, and alleviate fine lines, free radical damage, and enlarged pores.

You leave it on for 20 minutes, it stays tacky throughout, then rinse off with water. Immediate results? SUCH smooth skin!

Skinmedica Facial Cleanser – 1 oz Value $6.33

This cleanser is soap-free, and has a subtle lather. It was great for both cleaning my skin and removing makeup, plus it didn’t dry out my skin. The only downside – this tube felt about half-empty.

Glo Skin Beauty Renew Serum – 15 ml Value $23

Wow! This is half the size of the full-size version! This formula is designed to help stimulate mild exfoliation, and improve the appearance of texture with Retinol, Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid. And it smells like cherries!

Skinceuticals Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 – 5ml? Value $13.23

(There’s no size listed, but it’s about the same size as the Drunk Elephant sample, and the tube is completely full, so I think a 5 ml estimate is fair.)

In case, like me, you were wondering what the 2:4:2 means:

Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 is an anti aging cream formulated with a maximized concentration of lipids: 2% pure ceramides, 4% natural cholesterol, and 2% fatty acids. This unique lipid correction cream contains the first 2:4:2 cholesterol-dominant ratio to help restore skin’s external barrier and support natural self-repair, while potently nourishing aging skin for improvement in the visible appearance of skin smoothness, laxity, pores, and overall radiance.

This is a rich cream that’s very hydrating – it feels luxe. I’m not sure that the sample will last long enough for me to notice serious results, but I could instantly feel a difference in the moisture of my skin.

PCA Skin Hydrating Serum –  5ml Value $12.71

(Good to know for swapping – this entire bottle is sealed in plastic.)

This serum is a lightweight gel designed to hydrate and plump skin. It has no discernable scent, absorbed immediately, works for both day and night, and is specially designed for those with dry and sensitive skin!

Ren Perfect Canvas Skin Finishing Serum – 2 ml Value $3.67

This is a finishing serum that goes on after your moisturizer and before your makeup. It’s both a serum and a primer, and it gave my skin such a smooth finish – and it’s ingredient conscious!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $108.94. That’s a great value for a $24.95 box, and this is an impressive skincare box. I’m really impressed with the Glo and Drunk Elephant items – but everything in this box really is quality! I’ll use it all!

  1. Beautyfix is always my favorite sub. This month is a miss for me . I don’t care for juice beauty products. I miss when BF use to put something like tweezers,bling mirror compact , fingernail clippers etc along with the normally great skincare . Yes the samples are very small but it’s quality over quantity. This is a great box if you are a skincare junkie and love trying highend products.

  2. IS the Glo Beauty product’s expire date 7/17 for anyone else?

    • Hi, mine expired then too 🙁

      • They told me not to use it

    • Is the date on the bottom? Mine says 71017

    • It looks like mine is expired too. I’ll let them know.

    • Is this expired anyone know?

    • The expiration date is usually marked by the letters EXP. I’m not seeing that , so I think it’s safe to assume that’s the lot number on the bottom of the bottle.

    • Mine says R071017B. It sure does look like a date. It could be a batch date, an expiration date or as Jeanie said, a lot number. Does anyone know for sure what the number on the bottom signifies?

  3. I just got my box and I’m thrilled as usual. I do my research on skincare since I have rosacea. I wonder if anyone else has rosacea or has redness and knows more about these products firsthand.
    Perhaps there’s a forum link for those of us with redness/rosacea?
    Or maybe we could start one?

    • I had a red face and have slight rosesca and I started following Stephanie Nicole’s skin care routine and my redness has gone away a lot! She is on YouTube and Instagram. I am no longer embarrassed if I don’t wear makeup. I use a lot of skincare products so this box is perfect for that. Also, I follow her routine but I don’t use all the same product brands that she does. Just similar products. The key is consistency and toning. Hope this helps!

    • I’ve always just thought I had rosy cheeks. Is that even a thing? How do you know which it is?

  4. I can’t believe PCA is in a sub box! I quit BF a while ago because I have a pretty solid skincare routine down, but I will be buying the box. I use juice beauty peel regularly so buying it for 25$ is a steal!

    • I was thinking the same thing! I first noticed it as a spoiler for How to be a Redhead’s December’s box. It’s nice to see that brand is being included in sub boxes now. 🙂

  5. This is my 2nd box and I’m really pleased with everything. Except fo the Drunk Elephant, these are all new brands to me.

    I’m loving getting only skincare. Had enough of weird shades of matte lipstick & black eyeliner, and please- no more Smashbox primer!

    I dropped Macy’s & Ipsy so even at $25 per box, my budget is still on track.

  6. This box looks awesome, but I was really hoping there was going to be a coupon for it!

    • Looking back, they often put out a coupon the last week of the month. I got one box already. I’m going to wait on a second box until the end of the month and see.

  7. I got my box yesterday! So far I’ve used the cleanser and Juice mask. They both were really good on my dry/sensitive skin. This is my second box and I’m pretty impressed. I hope next months products are centered around hydration so I can prepare for the coming winter months!

  8. So in love with drunk elephant.. currently using a vitamin c sample from another box but all these sample have saved me from buying serum right now plus I get to see what my skin loves and responds. I have a $1800 product wish list from BF!

    • BF Sample serums

  9. Oh, so the Drunk Elephant item is only 5ml… That was the only item in this box I was truly interested in, but can’t spend $25 on 5ml…

    The Glo serum has alcohol as the second ingredient, and then witch hazel as the third, and alcohol again for some reason a few ingredients down on the list. No amount of niacinamide and allantoin would make up for that poor formulation. Citronellol closer to the end of the list is also an irritant.

    • Thank you for this info. I thought I had read that citrus irritates the skin. I’m not sure about which hazel but I’m going to look into the formula now too.

      • Witch hazel contains a lot of alcohol because of how it’s made.

      • Also, the last five ingredients are all irritating.

  10. I got my box yesterday and had a great time going through it. I’m already Im in love with the Glo after only one use. Go easy when you pump it as a lot comes out. I used the Skinceuticals and liked it too. Unfortunately, Skinceuticals prices are very high. I have to agree that the face wash is good. For once I washed my face and it didn’t feel tight and stripped afterwards. My Ren was smashed and thankfully didn’t make a huge mess and I didn’t get cut. I love Beautyfix and this one is extra great with all the high end skin products to try! I’ll be trying out the peel on my feet elbows, etc. – great idea ladies!

  11. I’m really on the fence about rather to keep the juice beauty or not. I have sooo many exfoliators and I don’t want to try something I’m not sure if it will work or not. How does it stack up to physical exfoliators, such as the dr. Brandt we got last month? Would love to hear opinions!

    • I Love this peel! It gently “eats away” at the top layer of skin immediately revealing brighter skin beneath and the acids soften the dark spots and lines that scrubs can’t get to. The Dr Brandt, while great, is for treating flaky, dry, dull patches and texture. Hope that helped a bit.

    • Chemical exfoliation is way better for your skin than physical exfoliation, and you can do it more often (2-3x per week, where the Dr Brandt one should be like once every other week)

    • Dr brant doesn’t even compare to a chemical peel. I barely touch my physical exfoliants because peels are so much more effective.

  12. Love BF and this month is a winner for me!!! I got my box today, tried the Skinmedica cleanser and Glo serum. Both are great! The serum made my face a little tingly but absorbed quickly and didn’t leave my face sticky like some serums do. I don’t like JB so I’ll be passing that along to someone else.

  13. I keep looking at this box but haven’t taken the plunge yet. I got the juice beauty peel in another box, it makes my face breakout 🙁
    Looks like a solid box.

    • I had a couple of these too. So I used it on my upper arms and it really helped with dry skin there!

      • I love trying all these high-end facial products, but sometimes I try something and don’t care for it on my face. Instead of tossing it, I use it on the tops of my hands and arms. As I am getting older, I notice that those areas need live too!

        • …”love” too!

          • Wonderful advice! Thank you. I’ll be using a ton of product this way instead of throwing them out

  14. I think I still have the full size jar of that peel from last time they sent it…

  15. Incredibly disappointed in the November 2017 BeautyFix subscription box. Have only been subscribed since July 2017 but seriously considering canceling.

    • Is it because the products didn’t work, or that it was all skincare, or small product sizes?

      I’m on the fence over whether or not to sub based on past months, but this month looks like it does have a lot of products I would use if they work well.

      • It’s honestly a good way to build a mini routine with upper tier skincare I’d never go out and pay full price for, and lots of variety.

    • Why? What do you want to see?

      • I was too harsh with my comment but I just wish they weren’t all so tiny. The previous boxes had much higher values.

  16. Absolutely love BeautyFix!!!
