March 2020 BeautyFIX Review
This box comes with a booklet detailing each of the items included. We have 9 (!!!) different items this month, so strap in!
TULA Skincare 24-7 Moisture Hydrating Day & Night Cream, 0.5 fl oz - Estimated Value $15.29 (Buy a full-size 1.7 fl oz for $52.00)
I tend to like most TULA products and this lighter cream was no exception. It feels super fresh on my face and has an airy scent to match. Though it says it is a day and night cream, this is not quite heavy enough for me to enjoy in the evening, but saving it for daytime suits me just fine. A little goes a long way and the only thing I would change would be to include an SPF. It is full of probiotics and other skin-loving superfoods and leaves my face with a smoother texture.
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bod Buff Smoothing Scrub 'N' Mask, 0.5 fl oz - Estimated Value $2.31 (Buy a full-size 5.4 oz for $25.00)
I would be hard-pressed to think of a brand that feels more "summer" than Sol de Janeiro. The scent just makes me think of the beach and cold drinks! This is also one of those scents that I really like, even though I am typically averse to "tropical" smells. This sample is of a body scrub with that same intoxicating smell of the wildly popular Bum Bum Cream. As the weather slowly gets warmer, this product is perfect! I only managed to get one shower use out of this sample (I have a larger bum bum) but I loved the gentle but effective exfoliation and the scent. Since we are all likely finding ourselves at home more often, products like this feel like a nice escape, even if you aren't even leaving your bathroom.
Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS Ultra-Natural Mascara, 0.3 oz - Full Size! Retail Value $24.00
I don't generally like Juice Beauty skincare, but I have tried some of their makeup items and do enjoy them significantly more. This mascara has a tart scent that reminds me of their other products, which was a little weird at first. This is the sort of mascara that gives a very natural lash look instead of lots of volume and length. I prefer this sort of coverage personally! It did add a little length, but mostly defined and coated each lash with a nice dark tint.
Sunday Riley ICE Ceramide Moisturizing Cream, 0.3 oz - Estimated Value $11.47 (Buy a full-size 1.7 oz for $65.00)
This is my second time sampling this cream, so I know a little goes a long way. That does make this tiny sample size feel a little better! I quite like this almond-scented cream and its heavier texture. My skin generally benefits from any ceramide product I have ever tried because ceramides help restore moisture and lipids to stressed out and dry skin.
Rahua Hydration Shampoo, 22 ml - Estimated Value $2.72 (Buy a full-size 275 ml for $34.00)
Rahua shampoo is one I really like, though I found this one lacking in that earthy scent I so often associate with this brand. This one was much more mainstream and "shampoo" smelling, which was a little it disappointing. As with everything I have ever tried from this brand though, the formula is great, and my hair felt super clean but still healthy after washing with this. This is a brand that always leaves my hair feeling healthier!
Rahua Hydration Conditioner, 22 ml - Estimated Value $2.88 (Buy a full-size 275 ml for $36.00)
Again, I miss the more unique fragrances from this brand! But, again, this formula was great. It felt like a treat for my dry strands and gave me a little extra bounce and shine.
skyn ICELAND Icelandic Youth Serum with Red Algae, 0.17 fl oz - Estimated Value $7.65 (Buy a full-size 1 fl oz for $45.00)
I read in our info guide that this serum is meant to help with redness, which is always a bonus for my ruddy face! This benefit comes from the red algae inside, which boasts antioxidants 6000 times stronger than vitamin C, which is kind of wild. It is a gel sort of formula with a reddish tint. I found on my face it absorbed in a snap and didn't leave much residue behind. I did notice redness reduction but didn't find this super moisturizing. I will be using it in tandem with a night cream!
Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain in 'Forever Pink', 0.05 oz - Estimated Value $14.00 (Buy a full-size 0.1 oz for $28.00)
I feel like this is one of the OG color-changing lipsticks, and I still adore it. It feels super nourishing on my lips and also creates a delightful true pink that is sheer and natural. It is also useable as a cheek tint, though I love it so much on my lips I generally save it for that.
Here it is a few minutes after I applied!
First Aid Beauty Pure Skin Face Cleanser, 2 oz - Retail Value $11.00
Finally, our last item is a gentle face cleanser. There wasn't much of a scent here and the airy whipped texture feels quite nice on my stressed-out face. It did a really nice job of washing away dirt and a little makeup, though I haven't been wearing much lately. I usually double-cleanse my face and this is a perfect first cleansing step!
Verdict: This month's BeautyFIX has a value of $91.32 which is good for a $24.95 box. I thought the brands in this month's assortment were really great! I tend to really like TULA, Sol de Janeiro, and (of course) Sunday Riley. Some of the sizes were certainly on the smaller side, but the 2 full-size items did make up for this a little. I plan on utilizing everything in my box this month, which is always a good feeling!
