I have recently began subscribing to several much talked about Beauty Subscription boxes,my current favorite is BeautyFix.
This was my first box, the Spring/Summer Quarter & here are some of my first impressions when this lovely (and large) box arrived on my doorstep.
My BeautyFix “haul” (minus my EXTRA bonus) Beauty Fix is a QUARTERLY subscription box that costs $49.99. Shipping is free & you get to pick 8 items from 30+ items* (many of them being full sized). Products included in the BeautyFix box are always high end. My box’s value was well over $200. I was also able to save $30 off my first box with the code BFBLOG.
*I registered VERY late in the quarter and have been told that there is often MANY more choices than what I was able to choose from. More on that Mid June when I get to pick the items for my Summer/Fall Quarter 🙂
Every Quarter, you are given the choice of a makeup bag/case. This is considered a “Bonus” item & does not count as one of your 8 products. I had a choice of 3, but I hear that there has been up to 5 choices at any one time! Retails for $10
My quilted bag had a cute “BeautyFix” embroidered logo on the corner. The bag is a great size. Everything fits inside, (still in it’s original box/packaging) MINUS my 10oz Johnathan Product Hair Spray!
This was a bonus item that I didn’t even see on the list! It was well hidden underneath everything else in my bag 🙂 It was a great surprise to find! Raw Color Multi-Tasking Retractable Brush Retails for $15 It’s too small to be a good powder or blush brush, but I thought it would be ideal for a highlighter or even contouring.
Global Goddess Beauty i Divine Eye Color – Darjeeling.
This caught my eye because it’s a full size eyeshadow- YAY! & because it is infused with White Tea.
The back claims that is an Anti-aging Chinese secret 😉 The retail is $18 for 1.9g of product.
I chose the color (one of three neutral/brown toned shades) partly because of the name “Darjeeling”
which makes me think of a certain movie 😉 But it is also a soft taupe that I think would look great on my light skin!
So, here you can see that it’s very pigmented & the application is SO smooth. I expected some shimmer based on the photos online. I wouldn’t call this matte, but a satin maybe. No shimmer. It is VERY hard to see on my skin, but would still make a great base color.
This is the product I was SO excited to get!! If you don’t know Skindinavia is the brand that makes Urban Decay’s All Nighter spray. Of which I own two. I love this stuff & with the summer coming up, a makeup setting spray is going to really make a difference! This will keep your blush in place, your mascara where it needs to be and your face looking perfect hours longer than without 🙂 I got a 4oz product which retails for $29.99
Bella Bronze Olive Oil and Shea Butter Tan Extender Retails for $25. This is good for your face and body. I got this mainly because it’s almost SUMMER! & this pale Mama has hopes of getting Sun kissed! But also, the words Olive Oil. I’ve been hearing some great things about Oliver Oil and what it can do on your skin 🙂
I wasn’t sure what to expect but this item does have a “light tanning agent” in it. It doesn’t smell beachy or chemically, more like a moisturizer.
Jonathan Product Create Smooth Anti-Frizz Volume Serum retails for $26. This stuff smells so good!
It’s like every time I’ve had my hair professionally washed in a salon.
For whatever reason, my bottle came without a lid. I could care, but I don’t 😉
One of the GREAT things about Jonathan Products is that their stuff is 100% Vegan.
Am I a vegetarian? No(t anymore)
But it’s great to see companies going above and beyond for what they believe in.
Chella Enzyme Exfoliating Crema Mask this 2.5oz bottle retails for $60 & has RAVING reviews! I could it to try this! While the smell is not great, it does have Sugar Cane in it so the slight sweetness makes it more bareable 😉 This was the first thing I tried out of my box. I rubbed it into my skin gently and went about giving my boys a bath, 10 minutes later, I washed it away with warm water. My skin has never felt smoother. If I were to only get to keep one item from my box- it would be this one. without a doubt.
Jonathan Product Finish Control HS Flexible Hairspray. I was drawn to this because it’s HUGE! 10oz & because I own NO hairsprays. I find them gross most of the time, but this one claims to be Flexible! I’m excited to try this with my favorite hair style lately, loose curls. Retails for $30
Again, 100% Vegan 🙂
I got this Styling clay hoping it might be a good product for the guys 🙂
My husband is always playing with this hair now that it’s short &
I figured if they don’t love it- I’ll use it to create messy locks! Retails for $26
I’ve heard nothing but great things about this nail kit! & this amazing color!
How could I pass this up!! Retails for $17.50 & $9.99 OR $20 as this kit shown.
The red color is a new favorite of mine, it is called “Moscow”.
Sounds like everything I need for my abused nails all in one bottle! This is their largest size bottle at .5fl oz.
I really cannot say enough good things about BeautFix. For $49.99 (free shipping) you get to choose 8 items- all deluxe travel sized OR full sized. (all my choices were full size) The website clearly states how many Ounces, Grams, etc of each product you will be receiving. I received my box 6 days after my order was placed. This seems to be typical of Beautyfix 🙂 I’m very excited because I choose to sign up late in the Spring/Summer quarter which means that the Summer/Fall quarter is fast approaching! I will get to make my next selections as early as June 15th!
For anyone who wasn’t keeping tabs: My Grand Total for the Value of my BeautyFix Box IS- $259.99
Beautyfix is one of 7 beauty subscription boxes I am currently subscribed to, so look out for future reviews on those boxes and some of the great products seen here 🙂
