Beautyfix by DermStore

A New Kind of Beauty Box

You know me; a beauty product lover.  I'm a firm believer in playing with makeup and beauty products.  I find it relaxing and I always feel pretty good about myself after a face mask or applying some new makeup, even if the only place I'm heading is to K's gymnastics class.

I'm a huge advocate for beauty subscription boxes.  I think they are a wonderful way to try new products and learn about different brands.  The ones I have encountered are always an amazing deal too.  Beautyfix by DermStore is definitely an amazing deal! For $49.99 (plus free shipping) you receive up to $400 worth of products. Beautyfix send full-size and deluxe travel sizes, not tiny samples!  The coolest part?  Beautyfix lets YOU pick what comes in your box. 

A Professional Panel of Experts picks products specifically for each quarter (season) and you customize your box from those products.  I got to pick 8 items and received a Quilted Vanity Case as a bonus (it's actually a great size and really nice).  It was outrageously hard to pick only eight.  Here's what I finally decided on (after polling friends, no joke, choosing was hard :)):
  • SkinMedica Ultra Sheer Moisturizer
  • Vichy Purete Themale 3-in-1 One Step Cleanser
  • Raw Natural Beauty All Over Eye Shadow Brush
  • Eminence Stone Crop Gel Wash
  • Skindonavia Finishing Spray
  • Cattiva Divino Las Mascara
  • Jane Iredale 24 Karat Gold Dust- in Rose Gold
  • Intelligent Beauty Labs Resue Rapid Repair Hair Mask
I picked mostly brands that were new to me and I'm so glad I did!  Makeup Finishing Spray is new to me in general and I was super excited to try it out.  Holding the bottle 10 inches from my face (after I had applied my makeup) I spritzed a couple times and voila.  It felt fresh and I think it definitely helped maintain my makeup for longer (the real test with be summers here in Phoenix!  I hope it works as well while the sun attempts to melt my makeup off)!

When I opened the Cattiva mascara a squealed, prompting Hubs-To-Be to check on me 'They blinged the mascara!!' was my excited reply.  Men, they just don't get it.  Not only was the mascara tube awesome the actual product worked wonders too- no clumping and amazing length.  I love the Gold Dust, it adds a bit of shimmer and color to my cheek bones.  Vichy is also a new brand to me, and I had heard the cleanser had a pretty perfume-y smell to it so I was a bit wary.  I am delighted to announce, although it did have a scent to it, it was absolutely not 'too perfume-y' and I loved the way it left my skin!

I can't wait to see what Beautyfix and the panel of experts have in store for spring!!
