Box Faves:

  • Skyn Iceland Eye Gels: BeautyFix sent this in a previous box and I loved these eye gels - they’re so cooling and so comfortable - even more so than other similar eye gels! They do run a little on the expensive side so I especially like receiving them in subscription boxes since this makes them a little more affordable!

  • Dermologica Sleep Cocoon: I absolutely loved this sleep cocoon because it goes on like a cooling gel but lasts all night long! Usually anything that moisturizers throughout the night tends to be a little on the heavier side but this product feels really light and feels like it still has some moisture left in the morning, so I’ve been enjoying it a lot!

Box Flops:

  • Tocca Perfume: If you’ve read my reviews before, this will be nothing new, but I am not a fan of receiving perfumes in subscription boxes! I don’t think they bring a lot of value to the boxes and since I tend to be pretty picky about scents, they’re not particularly useful for me since I rarely find a scent that I like through a subscription box. I know this works for other people but I tend to prefer finding perfumes in stores!

This month's BeautyFix was a bit of a weird one for me because although I liked most of the products, they were also mostly products I've already received in previous BeautyFix boxes. I still think the value of the box was absolutely stellar and the products in the box were great, however, I do wish that there was a little more variety in the brands and products that they included in the box so that I could've tried different things - after all, isn't that sort of the point of subscription boxes?

Ipsy Glam Bag Review | April 2019


IpsyApril8.jpg

The Ipsy Glam Bag is a monthly beauty subscription box that gives you a personalized bag of full-size and sample size beauty and make-up products for $10 a month. All of their products also come in a cute, handy little make-up bag!

Bag Fave:

Huangjisoo Masks: My favorite product of this month's bag by far were the masks! I love trying new masks and discovering new brands in this area and while I didn't love the smell of the broccoli mask, I enjoyed trying a new brand and I'll definitely re-visit this

Bag Flop:

Sugar Cosmetics Eyeliner: I've tried my hardest to indicate that I do not want to receive any eyeliners but I'm still receiving some eyeliners in my ipsy bags? I am super picky about eyeliners and either only use my favorite liquid eyeliners or no eyeliner at all so I don't really want any in my subscription boxes!!

This month's ipsy bag was just middle of the line for me :( I recently changed a lot of my preferences for what make-up I'd like to receive and while there are a lot more ways you can specify your preferences on ipsy, it seems like there might be a bit of a lag on those preferences being reflected in the actual bags themselves. What did you all think of this month's selection? Let me know in the comments!!

BeautyFix is a monthly skincare, makeup, and haircare subscription box created by DermStore. A monthly subscription is $24.95 per box and a one-time box purchase is $34.95. Most items in the box are either full or deluxe sample size products. I'd highly recommend the BeautyFix subscription box if you're looking to try high-end skincare and haircare products!

February Box

Box Fave:

Lancer Skincare Primer: This might've been the only thing I really liked about this box! I'm not super picky about primers but I do find that some primers dry up quickly and don't provide much moisture to my skin. While it's not stellar enough that I'd consider it a personal favorite, I'm enjoying this primer and do find that it provides enough hydration for my skin.  

Box Flop:

Ora Lip Plumping Roller: At first I wasn't quite sure how to feel about this product but after trying it out, I just really don't think it's necessary!! I have a dermaroller (also courtesy of an old beautyfix box) that I've enjoyed trying out but I just don't think it's necessary for me to have both a dermaroller and what is essentially a second dermaroller for my lips. It seems like it's just another way in which a brand is trying to expand their line of dermarollers by just varying the size of the roller itself and marketing it as a different product. Clearly, I'm not here for it - sorry!

I was so underwhelmed by the February BeautyFix :(  - While I normally feel like they provide good value in their boxes, this month was a giant miss for me because there weren't any products or brands I was excited about trying nor any products I was really excited about after I'd tried them - gah!

Box Faves:

I'm a big fan of all things eye creams, serums, anti-wrinkle creams so I loved that the March box included a lot of creams and serums!

Box Flop: 

This isn't a knock against the product itself, but since my hair isn't currently colored, I don't really have a use for the Color Wow shampoo. I wish that BeautyFix had chosen a shampoo that was a little more applicable to everyone since not everyone chooses to color their hair!

While February was a bit of a miss for me, the March box made up for it with all of the classic serums and moisturizers and creams galore that I love to receive from Beautyfix. What did you think of your BeautyFix box this month? Let me know! I'd love to hear from you!
