Alterna Caviar Miracle Multiplying Volume Mist – 1.4 oz Value $8.15
I LOVE the Alterna product line (their formulas smell fantastic and are free of parabens, phthalates, and sulfates.) So, I was excited to try this. (Plus I can always use more hair volume.)
This spray worked well for my hair. It’s lightweight, and it added enough texture that my hair had more shape, but I could still run my fingers through my hair. (I’m guessing if I overdid it on spraying, that wouldn’t be the case, though.) I’d recommend this if you are looking for some additional subtle volume but still want a natural look and feel.
Color Wow Kale Cocktail Bionic Tonic – FULL SIZE! Value $24
This tonic is designed to help fight the damage and breakage that can come from coloring your hair. You apply a small amount to towel-dried hair, and it’s a leave in treatment. It left my hair feeling super soft, and I like the scent, too. (It gets rave reviews, too.)
One word of caution – be careful opening this bottle – it is filled to the brim!
Ren Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream – 15 ml Value $13.50
Ren is another brand I’m always happy to see in subscription boxes – their formulas are free of just about any ingredient you might want to avoid, and they work well, too!
This cream is lightweight, absorbs relatively quickly, and it has a subtle, natural scent. This cream should work for everyone but was specially designed for sensitive skin. I highly recommend it, too. It left my skin feeling SO soft!
This is the fanciest nail clipper ever!
I really like that Beauty Fix has been including a tool in every box lately. (And this one is as practical as it is shiny!)
DHC Velvet Skin Coat – .18 oz Value $7.50
This makeup primer is pretty amazing. It goes on as a clear gel, and it did a great job at “blurring” my pores and making them less visible. Plus, it left an almost powdery finish – perfect for applying makeup.
Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque – 22 ml Value $13.80
This is a clay mask that dries in about 7-10 minutes. It did a great job of making my skin feel incredibly clean – I just am not a big fan of the scent!
Dermelect Me Nail Polish in Hold Me – FULL SIZE! Value $14
(Colors subscribers receive will vary.) Here it is on:
That’s only one coat! I’m impressed with this polish. The color is gorgeous too, the multicolor micro-glitter gives a galaxy vibe to the black base.
Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Lip Satin in Velvet – FULL SIZE! Value $48
This product is described as a stain/gloss hybrid. It gives a satin finish (just a hint of shine.)
This shade is a pretty bold red, but the good news is that you can tone it down a bit by only applying a bit at a time. Here it is swatched:
It felt pretty moisturizing on my lips, too. (Not always the case with stains!) But since this is a gloss/stain hybrid, it also didn’t have the same staying power as a standard stain.
Glytone Mild Cream Cleanser – 1 oz Value $6
This is a cotton-candy-pink cream cleanser! It’s not foaming, super gentle, and did a great job of cleansing my skin without stripping it of moisture.
Nuxe Multi-Purpose Dry Oil – .33 oz Value $7.40
I’ve sampled this dry oil before thanks to subscription boxes, but it is still such a treat to receive in a box! You can use it on your face, body or hair to add a little shimmer and glow. (It looks super shimmery in the bottle, but it blends out well once applied.)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $151! I’m always so impressed with this subscription. They always deliver on quality skincare products, and there’s usually a beauty tool or makeup product in the box to round it out. The December box feels extra decadent, too. I think this is one of my favorite Beauty Fix boxes of all time.
