Hello, friends! Itโ€™s been a minute since I posted over on the blog and Iโ€™ve missed it so, so much. Grad school is in a word - insane- and it has been a huge wake up call for me to have deadlines, and presentations, and papers all over again! I guess thatโ€™s what happens when you work for 3 years and forget what itโ€™s like to have homework :P 

Anyway, enough of my ramblings - what better way to get back into blogging than a little review of my favorite subscription box! 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. 




November 2018

November Box Faves:

  • Lancer: Omega Hydrate Oil - Iโ€™ve been loving facial oils for a while now and they can be quite expensive. Although a single bottle can last you a while (since youโ€™re really only using 2-5 drops at a time, itโ€™s still a tough pill to swallow when a single bottle can set you back $50+! This hydrating oil is a full-size product and since it goes for $75 normally, this thing pays for the entire box three times over!

  • Tarte Amazonian Clay Bronzer in Park Avenue Princess - Iโ€™m a big fan of Tarte products and honestly havenโ€™t disliked a single product Iโ€™ve tried from them! Iโ€™ve used this bronzer a handful of times and love that thereโ€™s a bit of shimmer in it but not enough that it draws a ton of attention.

November Box Flops:

  • I donโ€™t have any particular flops this month as it was a pretty good month product-wise, however, it was really apparent to me that the box had way fewer products than Iโ€™m used to with BeautyFix. Although this might be a function of the fact that the full-size product this month has a really high retail price, this monthโ€™s box was noticeably smaller quantity wise than previous months.

October Box Faves:

  • Sanitas Skincare: Lemon Cream Scrub - I am a huge, huge fan of the Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasian products, so my standards are abnormally high when it comes to exfoliating products, however, I was super impressed by this scrub! It smells amazing and I would argue is pretty close in quality to the fine exfoliating experience you get from the Dr. Brandt line for less cost.

  • Alterna Anti-Frizz Dry Oil Mist - I was also thoroughly impressed with this dry oil mist! Normally, the oils I use on my hair tend to weigh it down just a little bit even if theyโ€™re super light, but this dry oil mist doesnโ€™t feel heavy at all and achieves the same smoothing effect.

October Box Flops:

  • Rituals: The Ritual of Dao Balancing Foam Shower Gel - I didnโ€™t particularly love the scent of this shower gel which made it just okay for me. While I like the idea of a foaming shower gel I actually found it difficult to get the foam out of the pump! Maybe it was just the bottle I received, but unfortunately combined with the meh scent, this will definitely not be a re-buy for me.

  • Glytone: Ultra Softening Heel and Elbow Cream - The instructions for this product tell you to put on the cream, leave it on several minutes, and then to wash it off. I think this can be a bit misleading since itโ€™s labeled a cream, rather than some sort of exfoliant. Plus, at least for me, the cream really burned while it was on my skin and even a bit after Iโ€™d already rinsed it off. This might be a good product for people who need an intense exfoliant for heels or elbows, but it was too much for my skin.

I hope you enjoyed this little BeautyFix review! Let me know if there are any other beauty boxes youโ€™d like to see me try or any products you want to hear more about!
