Now, on to the items!

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!

 What do you think of the June 2017 Beauty Fix box? 

As of 6/13 – this box is still available if you sign up! Use coupon code BFADDICT10 to save $10 off your first box! (Your first box will be the June box.)

  1. This looks like an amazing gift idea for my wife! She will love it! Can you tell me if the $10 coupon is still active as it says June?

  2. Ayyyyyy why am I just seeing this now?

    If anyone got a June box and doesn’t want it – Let me know, I’d be happy to buy it from you!

  3. I’m a bit late to the party, but is there any way to still get the June box? I’m new to this. It says that it’s sold out on their website, but I thought I’d see if there were any insider’s tips!

    • I’m not sure, but I would say if you want the june box , call Dermstore customer service. They are really good. If they have it I’m sure that they will sign you up.

  4. I’m dying for July spoilers and keep checking anything that says BF.

  5. Okay, this review and $10 off signed me up. One thing I have noticed is that La Roche Posey samples are always so small that sometimes I can’t get a full size one time trial. Why do they bother? I’m not getting the box for that sample anyway.

  6. Too many tiny samples for my taste, I usually buy their box, but skipped this one!

  7. I am very excited about this box, especially with the $10 off. I have been turned off by BF for a while (the stale smelling Tarina Tarentino primer, the about to expire thinning hair product, etc, etc) so here is their chance to win me back!

  8. Love the roller and loved the video on dermstore website!!! Using the sun screen on my straw hats since I don’t use ss but wear sun blocker hats to help cut down on head sweating.i hope it works as the sun blocker hats are expensive!!! Teeth whitener are a couple under arm stains on white shirts and the brim of a straw hat!!! Worked like a charm. No amount of budgeting will make me give up this box . My monthly treat and can’t wait to try lip product. Live xolouebpop butbis very drying so maybe nightly lip treatment wil help. By the way loved loved smar lash effect on my sparse brows

    • Colourpop lip stains and used the trey whitener on underarm stains on a white blouse and …

  9. I’m obsessed with lip products and I love the dermalogica lip product in this box. Does anyone else notice a tingling sensation after they apply it? It’s not uncomfortable and goes away quickly. I know I’ll end up buying the full size. I bought the Veneffect lip product in a previous box that was also a bit pricey. No willpower!! I agree with a previous comment…people on this site, including me, never seem to have enough products.

  10. I think products are full of air because 3ml is just over 1/2 of a teaspoon. This is a small sample. I can’t believe how expensive this lip treatment is 4ml at $20?!! I can’t wait to try it.

    • I guess that makes sense. Maybe the correct amount is in the tubes if there’s only supposed to be half a teaspoon. When I get products I just expected them to be full. Why waste a whole tube for half a teaspoon? It’s misleading. But I still love The box!

  11. I’ve HAD SOME PRODUCTS THAT WEREN’T FULL, BUT JUST CONTACT CUSTOMER SERVICE BY PHONE, THEY ARE AWESOME AND ARE ONTOP OF IT!
    I HAVE BEEN ROLLING EVER SINCE I RECIEVED THIS BOX ! GO SLOWLY WHEN YOU ROLL, THE RESULTS ARE BETTER!

  12. So I bought one since I couldn’t get the items from swap and I’m excited about most. I also had a 25 visa gift card so I used it and the $10 off code and it came to $16.18 with tax. I’m guessing this will be the only box I get and I’m fine with that since I have enough subscription boxes. 🙂

    • Oh, I tried to do that with my PayPal card but they said I couldn’t get it for a one time at that price, so you may want to check and make sure they cancel it. The one time cost was going to be $34.+ and I could not use the code. So I didn’t order it.

  13. Great review, i haven’t used anything in my box , except the lip treatment. Reading this review helps me know how to properly use each product and kinda what to expect. I honestly don’t use many things because I have really sensitive skin. I just have some odd skincare /makeup hording addiction.

    • I think everyone on this website shares that odd makeup/skincare hoarding addiction. 🙂

  14. Oh man I Loooove this mask!! My face feels amazing after a little spa session with that and the roller! I love that they send me things I’d never buy on my own but wind up loving. I wish I didn’t already use my whole mask 😩

  15. I personally love the lip treatment and bought a second box to get another one.

  16. All of my sample items have been 90% empty. Every single one! I did send an email last box about it, and I’d feel like I’m being a nag if I did it again but it’s hard to justify $30 a month for air . Does anyone else have this same problem??

    • Nope.. maybe one a sample size here or there will not have too much in them, with certain brands, but overall I’m very happy with all the deluxe samples and full sized products..

      • Maybe it’s just me and I expected more product in the samples. This month my toothpastes were almost empty, along with the skinceuticals cream and laroche posay. Last month it was the eye cream and the replacement they sent me was empty too.

        • I’ve used one of my eye creams from last month since I received it and it isn’t empty yet. So, it is random, I guess.

        • My eye cream sample from last month was almost empty too, so it may have been the manufacturer (which sucked because I actually really liked it). All my samples were full this month, but I totally get what you mean by having to contact someone a 2nd month in a row.

  17. I received my box last Saturday and the serum was missing. I emailed support and haven’t gotten anything back which is highly unusual. Hoping they will send me one I love serums!

    • I’d give them a call to follow up on your email. Their customer service over the phone is fabulous!

  18. I’ve been using the dermaroller every other day, its not painful, just a little uncomfortable, when I’m done, my skin feels great. We’ll see if there are any long term results. I love Beauty Fix, I try things I never would have considered.

  19. I actually loved Paula’s choice sunscreen so much, I had to order another box. It was so much cheaper then buying the sunscreen itself and it was like getting all the other items for free too, especially with the $10 off coupon!!

    • That’s a really good idea! I really love the Dermalogica Lip Treatment and was thinking gee if I bought another box then I could get all of these other things too…

      Thanks for convincing me!!! 😆

      • How did you like the lip treatment? I love lip products and was considering buying the box to try this.

  20. I got the lip liner in the color Blossom and I LOVE it!!!!!

    I used the microneedler for the first time in my life.I did not hurt at all and that probably was bad because I overdid it and got a nice redness that lasted a few days! Other than that it’s fun to try it out. But in moderation!

  21. Wait Liz. If I sign up today I get Mays box? Not this box?

    • You will get this box if you sign today!

    • Sorry – I thought I fixed that line and just realized it still said May. (Updated now.) If you sign up today your first box will be the June box! 🙂

      • Just signed up! What a great value- with the coupon I got the box for 15.70!!!! I will probably swap the sunscreen– if anyone else loves the sunscreen but not the dermalogica and would like to do an even swap, let me know! It would be a great gift for my mom but I want to try it too. Also really excited about the microneedling for some old acne scars- thanks cystic acne!!

        • Do you have kids? I dont use sunscreen much….but i have been using it on my kids and it works great!

        • Hey! I am just now seeing this box and love the sunscreen. If you don’t have any takers for the sunscreen, I would love to do a swap. I just ordered my box so it may take a while to get to me. I could also include the roller thing if you want since I am not interested in that.

      • Liz, I see some people purchased the renewing subscription and their box came to around $15. If I purchase today will the box ship before the next renewal period?

  22. I used to microneedle every other day for about six months. I loved the results! I’m excited to start up again! They make a lidocaine cream to help with the associated pain, I haven’t tried it personally.

    I used my microneedler on a scar that was about 5-6 inches long on my forearm. It definitely reduced the size of the scar, it’s now about 3 inches long and doesn’t have a raised look to it anymore. It’s still there and noticeable but not nearly as intense! I would definitely recommend microneedling!!!!

    • Make sure you keep your microneedler CLEAN and do some research on which serums and facial treatments might work the best. I kept rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle and would clean my microneedler before and after each use. There are quite a few YouTube videos that were a big help when I started microneedlind and are definitely worth a look if you’re curious. 😊

  23. I get two BF boxes, and one Laura Geller liner was NUDE and the other SPICE. I agree–the NUDE is pretty invisible, but the SPICE is a little deeper in color and it’s my new favorite. I’m very impressed with with the texture and staying power!

  24. My bestie derma rolls and said it takes several months to really get results. She sent me before and after pics and it definitely looked worth it.

  25. I am using the roll everyday after cleaning my face. It is painful, so I do not use for long (1 min may be) and then apply serum and moisturizer. I do not see any effects, but it makes me feel good thinking that my serum and cream absorbed better with it.
