February 2020 BeautyFIX Review
This box comes with a booklet detailing each of the items included. We have 7 (!!!) different items this month, so strap in!
Doctor Rogers RESTORE Healing Balm, 0.5 oz - Retail Value $30.00
I have psoriasis on my legs (I thought it was eczema until a recent dermatologist visit) and I am super careful about what I put on my skin for this reason. I was given a topical steroid, but when you use those frequently they actually thin your skin, which sounds like a nightmare. I have a larger size tube of this from a different box and I have found it really works well on my legs because the ingredient list is so simple and there are no added fragrances. It also is a dream on cuticles, dry elbows, and knees. This tube is very small (especially for the price) but a little goes a long way and this is perfection for pockets or a purse on the go.
PCA Skin Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum, 0.25 oz - Estimated Value $28.75 (Buy a full-size 1 oz for $115.00)
Oh, wow, this stuff legit feels amazing on my skin. It has a little bit of a weird scent (baking bread...?) but I don't mind. It left my skin feeling like a dream, which isn't shocking since it is full of ceramides, niacinamide, and my boo, hyaluronic acid. I applied it after cleansing, and before my daily moisturizer. My texture was immediately smoother and there was a high moisture level that lasted all day, even under makeup and powder.
Bioderma Sensibio H2O, 100 ml - Retail Value $5.90
I use micellar water to rinse off my eye makeup (and more) almost nightly. Though my favorite is by Avène, this one is nice too, and does its job well. Simply apply some to a cotton ball or pad and gently wipe away the day. It removed even stubborn waterproof makeup with very little effort.
100% Pure Deep Hydration Sheet Mask - Retail Value $6.00
So I am not someone who is generally very stressed out. I am pretty even keel and happy go lucky 99% of the time. This last week has really been a doozy though, and I fear it is showing in my skin. I have been trying to take a breath and really pamper my face because I hate how dull and lifeless it looks in the mirror. This mask was a lifesaver. It was so saturated with this clear serum with loads of hydration. The combo of ceramides, cucumber, and hyaluronic acid must have been exactly what I needed because I looked a lot less haggard after I removed it.
Here is a very glamourous image of me enjoying this mask while reviewing this box.
lilah b. Aglow Face Mist, 10 ml - Estimated Value $16.00 (Buy a full-size 30 ml for $48.00)
I am kind of a mist hoarder. I just love the refreshing feeling they give on top of makeup throughout the day and I always use them at night too because they hydrate my skin beautifully between skincare steps. This is a smaller sample, but it is ideal for my purse. Floral ones tend to be my favorites (I have a jasmine and a rose one I use daily) and this lavender-scented mist is dreamy. It adds a nice dewiness to my finished face.
R+Co RODEO STAR Thickening Style Foam, 1 fl oz - Estimated Value $6.40 (Buy a full-size 5 oz for $32.00)
I have really thick hair but I love adding more volume. This is the sort of mousse you use on your hair when it is damp, then blow-dry. I don't ever really blow dry my hair but I found it still added some nice lift to air-dried hair too. It also smells fantastic!
Dermelect Rapid Repair Facial Moisturizer, 0.5 fl oz - Estimated Value $5.76 (Buy a full-size 3.3 fl oz for $38.00)
Finally, our last item is a really nice moisturizing cream for sensitive skin. The formula itself is a really pretty pale blue color. The texture here is quite nice, and though this is heavy in terms of moisturizing power, it didn't feel heavy on my face. The chamomile and azulene helped reduce my redness a little too, which is always appreciated. I like this enough to make it a day cream option until the tube is empty for sure!
Verdict: This month's BeautyFIX has a value of $98.81, which is very nice for a $24.95 box. I can always count on great brands inside this box, and everything this month was pretty awesome and totally useable. There was a nice assortment of face, body, and hair items inside and I think if I had to select favorites, it would be the Doctor Rogers balm and the PCA serum, though picking faves is hard from a curation this nice.
