Notification

BeautyFIX is a monthly subscription box from Dermstore that sends you the latest skin care, hair care, and makeup products for $24.95 a month (or $34.95 for a one-time purchase). They feature full and travel-sized products and promise the box will contain at least $100 worth of items. Everyone receives the same products, although makeup colors or scents may differ, but at least you will know what you’re getting if you decide to purchase the box after you see the contents.

TIP: you can subscribe to BeautyFIX and receive this exact box – it’s usually available all the way through the end of the month!

DEAL: Save $5 on your first box with BFBOX5

The theme this month is “Down To Earth.” The unifying factor is eco-friendliness and beautifying botanicals!

The product information card gave the item name, what it’s used for, and a coupon code for a shop purchase.

Everything in my box!

Juice Beauty GREEN APPLE Age Defy Moisturizer ($48) The inclusion of this full size, totally expensive, and totally wonderful product totally makes the box! It’s over double the cost of the box!

Juice Beauty says that this moisturizer is for all skin types but sensitive (not designed for very sensitive or rosacea skin due to the alpha/beta hydroxy fruit acids). It works great on my skin, absorbing quickly. The natural botanicals in this day cream are for brightening and softening.

This cream is rich, with aloe vera and shea, and made from organic ingredients! I’m so excited by this!

Alterna CC Cream 10-in 1 Complete Correction Leave-In Hair Treatment ($10.34) This deluxe sample is just a bit short of a regular travel size! This hair product smells great and can be used as a “primer” for other products but makes your hair look great all on its own – shiny, and soft! It’s designed to provide: moisture, shine, smoothness, softness, anti-breakage, heat protection, light hold, UV protection, manageability, and strength.

Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Face Gels – Smile Line Patches ($4.38) These were in BeautyFix about a year and a half ago, and I’m happy to see them return because they’re such an unusual item!

These are a bit firmer than eye masks and contain a load of botanical extracts to help plump your smile lines and reduce their appearance! I think they’re excellent to use before photos or a special occasion – get ready for wedding season!

Veneffect Anti-Aging Lip Treatment ($25) This product typically comes in a little pot so accordingly there’s no applicator on this product – a bit of a shame because it’s so terribly pricey – $85 for the full size! This product is designed to increase firmness and combat wrinkles with phytoestrogen, resveratrol, peptides, and grapeseed oil.

Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Cream ($15.51) This product just launched a week ago! I love that this quick mask can be used as an intensive treatment or as an every day depuffer and circle remover. It’s cooling and I felt that my eye area appeared better after using it. The full size product includes a cooling metal tip too. I would love to see the full-size in a box!

Honest Beauty Magic Balm ($18)

This all purpose shiny beauty balm is designed to give a little extra hydration and protection wherever you find the need.

The product itself does sweat (I have purchased this brand new directly from Honest) so the funny appearance is normal. I like that it has some calendula for extra healing power.

100% Pure Pomegranate Oil Anti-aging Lipstick in Poppy ($29)  This packaging is so cute!

This lipstick is shea based, so it’s extremely moisturizing, plus it uses 100% natural fruit pigments. The pomegranate pigment has the natural benefit of serving as an antioxidant for anti-aging, as well as providing a sweet natural smell – it’s smelled so great even my husband remarked on it!

This pigment is amazing and the color is bold and true!

Luzern Labs (2-Piece Kit) LaDefense Urban Protect Daily Moisturizer ($16) and LaDefense Urban Protect Detox Masque ($2.88) This set contains TWO products, and one’s hidden in the box – be sure to fish it out! The moisturizer is designed to neutralize environmental effects and protect against both blue light (!) and pollution.  It sounded a little hokey, but their website says:

  • LUTEIN protects skin against damage caused by free radicals generated by blue-light. Blue-light from both natural light and man-made light emitted from computers, televisions, and smart phone screens, passes the skin membrane causing skin damage similar to that caused by UV rays, such as wrinkles and age spots.
  • POLYPHENOLS and GINSENOSIDES offer powerful anti-oxidant protection against free radicals and create a protective skin barrier against toxins from settling into pores. This inhibits inflammation and collagenase enzyme activity, reducing collagen damage to help maintain elasticity and skin flexibility.
  • VITAMIN C AND ORGANIC CAMAPU EXTRACT work together to reduce melanin synthesis from sun and stress to improve luminosity and even out skin tone.
  • HYALURONIC ACID, L-ARGININE, and PANTHENOL increase surface moisture to promote perfect skin hydration and help protect skin from irritation.

The mask is designed to absorb impurities, and both products are free of the “Toxic 12.” Although the claims seemed really wild, after checking them out and using them, I’m more than happy to use up my entire sample!

This box had an astonishing $169 value – incredible for a $24.95 beauty box (plus this box is still available AND has a $5 coupon – Save $5 on your first box with BFBOX5). I thought the curation and theme was their best-ever, plus there were 3 new product launches in this box!
