March 2021 BeautyFIX Review
This month's box was missing the handy booklet it usually arrives with that lists all of the products inside. Let's unpack this box!
This is a weekly purifying mask that works to detoxify, smooth, and revitalize your skin. The mask is made with red algae and French red clay to purify your skin. Red wine extract, vitamin A and E soothe skin while neutralizing free radicals. Some of the other top ingredients include water, algae, montmorillonite, pumice, olivoyl hydrolyzed wheat protein, coco-glucoside, soybean oil, and grape seed oil. These all together help to create an even skin tone, stimulate cell turnover, and boost clarity. To use this mask, you just need to apply a thin layer, leave it on for about 3 to 5 minutes, start removing with warm water while massaging into skin in circular motions. I really loved this mask, but I will say that it was very exfoliating. I don't think I will use it on my skin every week, maybe every other, because it really does a great job of removing dead skin cells and buildup, but it felt pretty intense for my sensitive skin. I didn't experience any redness or irritation which is great, just really soft and smooth skin. I used this mask before bed and applied my night skincare routine, adding a bit more moisture to rehydrate my skin, and woke to a super soft and healthy glow. This is going to be a great mask to have on hand when I need a really deep exfoliation!
TULA Skincare Face Filter Blurring & Moisturizing Primer, 0.24 fl oz. - Estimated Value $8.17 (buy 1 fl oz. for $34.00)
I used to be a primer hater. Once I changed to a cream foundation though I realized how important a primer really is. I even went one day recently without a primer just to see and my makeup looked totally different, and not in a good way! I am totally loving this primer! It gives my skin that final extra boost of hydration, which I always need. It gives my skin a really smooth finish, perfect for makeup application, but it also has glow particles that are released on application to give a radiant application. This is made with chia seeds to boost your skin's natural radiance, licorice extract to brighten and even skin tone, turmeric extract to minimize redness and inflammation, and probiotic extracts to lock in moisture. I am so happy to have found another primer that works well with my skin and my foundation!
This cleanser is working really well for me! I have been using the same cleanser since I was 17, but this was the first that I've tried that I've also loved. It leaves my skin feeling and looking clean, removes makeup perfectly, without making my skin feel stripped and dry. It also makes a really nice lather without having to use a ton of it, a big key for me. The top ingredients in this cleanser are Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract to prevent free radical damage and pro vitamin B5 to soothe, calm, and bind moisture to surface skin layers. Other ingredients include water, disodium laureth sulfosuccinate, cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine, sodium lauryl sulfoacetate, PEG-150 bentaerythrityl tetrastearate, and camellia oleifera leaf extract.
ClarityRx Daily Dose of Water Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum, 1 fl oz. - Retail Value $72.00
I am sort of new to the HA game, but I have been loving how it makes my skin feel and look. My skin is naturally very dry, but this is a great product for all skin types. I recently had to toss a bottle of HA that I was really liking after doing some research on one of the ingredients in it that sort of freaked me out. I was really happy to receive this bottle to replace it with though and that the ingredient list is pretty straightforward! It is made with Purified Water, hyaluronic acid, phenoxyethanol, and ethylhexylglycerin. This is a little on the sticky side, but I found that if I am applying it right away to damp skin, then it glides right on. The key is also to apply your moisturizer right away, which I also found to help with the stickiness.
RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek in Smile - Retail Value $36.00
I love cream blushes so much! Now that I am getting my dry skin under control, they work even better, and I can't wait to use them in the summer when I have a healthy glow. This is a really beautiful cream formula that you can use on your lips and cheeks. It is highly pigmented so it is very buildable, a little can go a long way, or you can make it super sheer. This cream is made with argan, coconut oil, cocoa, and shea butter to hydrate, blend, and giving lasting power that is similar to a stain. This color is a bit too coral for me right now on my cheeks, but I know this is going to be my go-to come the summer. I can't wait!
Verdict: This month's BeautyFIX brought a refresh to some staple products for me. I was on the hunt for a new Hydraulic Acid serum and was so excited to see that this bottle was high quality with a simple ingredient list. It is already helping to keep my skin hydrated and that flaky dryness away. I was really surprised by how much I like the cleanser, but it is doing a great job at removing dirt and makeup without leaving my skin feeling extra dry. The primer is another staple that I am loving! It hydrates my skin while giving me a flawless application for my foundation. It is also super lightweight so it just glides over my other products without feeling like too much. The mask is a bit too much exfoliation for me to use weekly, but it really worked wonders on my dry skin. I loved the results so am planning to use it every other week or so for that extra smoothness. The cream foundation is a big winner for me, I can't wait to use it in the summer.
This month's box has a value of $130.25 which is great for an under $25 box. This month had a lot of sample sizes, which I know can sometimes make the box feel a little less exciting at times. I sometimes find smaller sizes to be helpful in boxes like this because it allows me to not feel overwhelmed with products, and it gives me a chance to test a product over time before deciding if I want the product in a larger size. I really have been loving this box, the quality products that they send each month, and giving my skin the chance to test new products and brands to see what works.
