BeautyFix: August 2017


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. 


DCL: Power Kit | Full-Size Serum $95, Moisturizer $75

This little kit includes one serum and one moisturizer that are perfect little travel-size companions! I like both of them enough to finish off the samples but since they don’t feel much different from my current serums or moisturizers, I won’t be repurchasing.


MDSolarSciences: Mineral Tinted Creme SPF 30 | Full-Size $32

This is one of those products I just don’t have a use for! I find that tinted sunscreens are generally just not my cup of tea. There are a lot of other products out there that function as full-coverage foundations or really nice hydrating moisturizers that also contain SPF so adding another layer of greasy sunscreen just doesn’t seem necessary.

Foreo: Luna Play | Full-Size $39

This little facial brush was definitely the star of the box for me! I’ve wanted to try the Foreo Luna line for a while but  given their super high price tag, I didn’t want to take the leap without testing out the product first. This Foreo Luna Play is a super cute travel size version of the full-size brush that uses sonic pulsations to help you get a deeper clean. After using it a couple of times, I definitely feel like this little brush is doing a lot for my skin. My only gripe is that it’s not rechargeable - which makes it feel like a gimmick to get me to buy the full-size brush 😔

Keranique: Daily Essential Supplements | Full-Size $49

I really don’t know how to feel about supplements that help to promote hair growth. If anyone else out there has more experience with these kinds of supplements - please share your experience in the comments! I’ve never taken a hair supplement and actually am kind of wary of them so these were a flop product for me. 

Perricone MD: Superberry Powder with Acai | Full-Size $75

Same sort of notes as the previous product! Although I live a pretty healthy lifestyle, I haven’t quite gotten to the point where I throw supplements or protein powder into my food. This powder is antioxidant rich and supports overall health so I might throw it into a smoothie someday, but I probably won’t be purchasing this anytime soon.

Juice Beauty: Blemish Clearing Cleanser | Full-Size $22

I might be wrong, but I’m pretty sure this i the full-size version of this cleaner - and I always appreciate receiving a full-size product in a subscription box! I’ve tried a couple of Juice Beauty masks before and I’ve always wanted to try more out of their line! Unfortunately, I do not enjoy the smell of this cleanser but since it’s a blemish clearing  (something I often experience on my skin), I’ll put up with the smell - I just won’t be re-purchasing anytime soon. 😃 


Dermablend: Loose Setting Powder | Full-Size $27

This translucent powder from Dermablend is meant to conceal imperfections, set makeup, and claims to last up to 16 hours. My face can get pretty oily throughout the day and unfortunately, I don’t think this powder actually lasted me 16 hours - but it does do a great job off setting makeup and has an amazing silky texture!


Products Mentioned:

Overall, I’m pretty happy with this month’s BeautyFix. Although I wasn’t a big fan of the edible samples in this month’s box, the value of this box is still awesome. Since I’ve been wanting to try the Foreo Luna line of brushes for so long, receiving that little brush pretty much made up for the rest of the duds in the box 😛 What did you think of your August BeautyFix? I’ve really been loving this subscription box!
