Everything in the June box! This month there was no information card, at least in my box.

Juliette Has A Gun Moscow Mule Perfume 1.7ml ($3.35) This perfume is a combination of citrusy, floral, and woody notes. It’s inspired by the famous Moscow Mule Cocktail.

The scent lasts for hours. It has ginger, which is known for its antioxidant and aphrodisiac properties. There’s also lime as the refreshing and seductive top note. Both added excitement to this edgy cocktail fragrance.

To complete its hypnotizing effect, they also added notes of tangy apple, bergamot, and jasmine.

Jane Iredale Flirt LipDrink Deluxe  ($6.07) It’s an SPF15 soothing and hydrating lip balm with a sheen finish. The blend of waxes and oils create a silky smooth consistency, leaving your lips soft and pouty. It has a citrusy flavor and smell, which I really like. The antioxidant green tea, titanium oxide, vitamin C, and vitamin E also provides a broad spectrum of protection from environmental irritants. It is natural, vegan, paraben-free, and cruelty-free.

Nia 24 Sun Prevention 100 Percent Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 ($49) A lightweight lotion like this is perfect for summertime. It nourishes and protects the skin during sun and free radical exposure, and also helps prevent further damage. The formula contains titanium dioxide and zinc oxide to provide the skin with full broad-spectrum protection (a huge yay for mineral based sunscreen!). Another key ingredient is vitamin E, which promotes healing and hydrates with antioxidants.

A small amount of this sunscreen goes a long way. Makeup can be applied over it too. It has SPF 30, and it’s also free from fragrances, oils, and parabens.

Alterna CAVIAR Anti-Frizz Blowout Butter  ($5.78) This hair treatment has a cream to oil consistency. It’s a surprisingly lightweight formula that adds shine and tames frizzy hair while giving protection and moisture. It improves hair strength, texture, and manageability too.

The hair butter is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. Just emulsify a small amount into your palms and then apply to damp hair before blow-drying or styling. It has a climate shield complex that promises to control the moisture of hair and frizz for up to 72 hours. Ingredients include pure caviar extract, omega 3 fatty acids, proteins, minerals, and vitamins A, C, and D.

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream ($4.50) I like the catchy name! It’s a non-sticky, fast-absorbing, lightweight body cream that moisturizes, tightens, and smoothens the skin. I love the pistachio caramel yummy scent upon application. It’s formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.

You can create warmth by massaging this in a circular motion and to stimulate better absorption and circulation. It is recommended to use for the buttocks, legs, tummy, and arms. It gives us a Brazilian glow by having a perfect blend of nourishing butter, antioxidant acai, and conditioning coconut oil.

Shaveworks The Cool Fix ($6) Shaving can get messy especially because of razor burns, so this gel lotion will surely come in handy. It targets ingrown hairs, razor bumps, razor burns, and redness. You can apply it to dry, cleansed skin and to affected areas after shaving or waxing.

The gel works because its formula has a combination of exfoliating agents that prevent ingrown hairs from growing and helps release trapped hairs underneath the skin. It spreads quickly and evenly over skin, kills bacteria while providing a calming relief to skin irritation whether it’s under the arms, bikini area, or legs. This is great but… my husband already ran off with it! Two bottles please, next time! 😂

Dermalogica Bio-Luminc Serum ($8.70) Packed with Vitamin C, this serum helps enhance skin’s defenses and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as it brightens and firms the skin. It also contains lactic acid, sophora japonica flower extract, and chia seed oil. All of them work together to accelerate cell turnover, hydrate, and help return skin into a calm state after enduring oxidative stress from free radicals.

It’s an all-around serum recommended to use after toning and before moisturizing. Just dispense a full dropper and apply over cleansed face and neck morning and night. This should last about 5-7 days for me!

Colorescience Sunforgettable Brush-on Sunscreen SPF 50 Medium ($65) This is an award-winning lightweight mineral powder with sunscreen. I like the sheer coverage with a matte finish – perfect for touch-ups or when setting makeup.

The formula contains ingredients that are ideal for acne-prone or sensitive skin. It also offers UV protection as it contains broad-spectrum SPF 50 sunscreen. Prime the brush first by rubbing it at the back of your hand until the powder shows. Reapply every 2 hours for optimal UV protection.

This is the creamy sheer peachy pink swatch of Flirt LinkDrink Deluxe and underneath it – the brush-on sunscreen!

We got a total of eight products from BeautyFIX this month, a mixture of scent, makeup, and skincare. Almost all of them have SPF that is perfect for summer. I also notice they always have potent serums included in their monthly boxes. I like the idea because it always amps up any skincare routine. The Colorescience powder was also a favorite for me because of its easy application (thanks to the genius packaging) and itsmatte sunscreen finish. BeautyFix has always something different and innovative products to feature. The box gave us a luxurious experience to try out these hyped products and it goes to show that beauty experts really curate their monthly box. This month was a blockbuster with over $150 in value!!

What do you think of this month’s BeautyFIX? The current month’s box is available through the end of the month, or until it sells out!
