Paula’s Choice Sunscreen Spray Broad Spectrum SPF 43 – FULL SIZE! Value $25
This sunscreen has an SPF of 43, and that classic sunscreen smell. The spray is a fine mist, and it goes on clear, so it’s easy to get complete coverage. (And full sized sunscreen is always a win in my book.)
ORA Microneedle Face Roller System – White/Aqua – Value $19.99
This product is new to me, but I’ve been seeing microneedle rollers around for a while. And I’ve been wanting to try one, but I think the word “needle” in the name has always made me hesitate.
(Good to know for swaps – this comes in a sanitary sealed bag!)
If you aren’t familiar with microneedle face rollers, the concept behind them is this:
Fine needles gently penetrate the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production, which helps to result in smoother, firmer, and healthier skin and reduce the signs of aging.
This, in theory, can work on everything from fine lines, to acne scars, to stretch marks. They even recommend using it on your scalp to promote hair growth!
I tried it out on my face, and I could definitely feel the needles! It wasn’t too painful, but it definitely was noticeable! I didn’t see any immediate difference in my skin, but I’m guessing you have to use this regularly to see results. (Also make sure to clean with alcohol between uses since you are piercing your skin!)
If you’ve used microneedle face rollers before, please let us know what types of results to expect and when!
H20+ Beauty AquaDefense Refining Matcha Detox Mask – 15 ml Value $9.50
(Good to know for swaps – this product has an inner foil seal.)
This is an emerald green gel mask. It’s designed to help minimize the appearance of pores and detoxify skin. The first thing I noticed about it is the scent – I’m in LOVE with the scent. You leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then peel it off.
And wow, there is just something so satisfying about peeling off a mask! (I’m also a big fan of Biore pore strips.) This mask wasn’t super strong like Biore though, (no visible pore-clogging dirt on the mask), but it left my skin feeling cleaner and smoother.
SkinCeuticals Resveratrol B E – Sample Value $25?
(I’m estimating that this is a 5 ml sample based on similar sized products.)
This gel formula is paraben, fragrance, and dye free. It is designed to “Diminish visible signs of aging, and improve the appearance of skin radiance, firmness, and density.”
The serum was gentle on my skin, and absorbed quickly. I’d say I can probably get a week’s worth of uses out of this sample, and I’m hoping to see some results by then!
Laura Geller New York Pout Perfection Waterproof Lip Liner in Nude – FULL SIZE! Value $18
This lip pencil has more of a crayon feel, and it is well pigmented with a matte finish. It is pretty much the exact color of my lips, so it works for a no-makeup look for me, but I usually prefer giving my lips some color.
Here it is swatched:
Dermalogica Nightly Lip Treatment – 4 ml Value $20
(This is almost half the size of the full size version!)
I love when BeautyFix includes new-to-market products! This nightly lip treatment from Dermalogica is designed to “smooth the appearance of fine feather lines and wrinkles.”
To use, apply it on and around the lip area and massage in a bit. I’m someone who keeps chapstick on the nightstand and I’ve woken up in the middle of the night and had to reapply (I hate the feeling of dry lips). But with this lip treatment, my lips still felt hydrated. I’ll definitely use every drop of this sample!
La Roche Posay Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer – 3 ml Value $1
Sadly, this sample tube is mostly air, but it is good for at least one full face application. The formula is fab. It’s paraben, fragrance, and oil free. Plus it’s lightweight and has a matte finish. So basically it is the perfect summer moisturizer, and I wish the sample had been much larger!
Supersmile Professional Whitening System (2 piece set) .42 oz total Value $5.80
I love using Supersmile whenever I get it in subscription boxes (but it’s too pricey for me to justify buying at retail price). This travel set includes a whitening accelerator along with the toothpaste. Place a pearl sized drop of each on a dry toothbrush and you’re good to go!
I can’t say I’ve noticed any whitening changes using Supersmile, but I like to think their products help me in preventing any staining from all the tea I drink!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $124! That’s a great value for a $24.95 box. This box had a good amount of full size and deluxe size products. And the brands are all fab. Plus I always love when BeautyFix includes a beauty tool!
