BeautyFix Fall 2012!!

I can’t tell you ENOUGH how much I LOVE BeautyFix! It’s a little pricy at $49.99 a quarter, but you are literally getting 10x the value as the cheaper monthly boxes! You get to select 8 products (many of the options are full size, high end products) and a cosmetic bag. My Beautyfix kit this Quarter DID have a few tiny hang ups, but I’ll get to those 🙂

So, hang up #1, not a huge deal, actually kind of funny, but my bag was embroidered all wonky! I selected this same bag for the very first Beautyfix kit and it should be in the bottom left corner, obviously turned back around so it can be read. This retails for $15.

First thing I chose was an absolute no brainer for me. I love my nails and my nails love Nailtiques. This kit has a little bit of everything in it- 1oz of Nail Moisturizer (retails for $13.99) & a “Formula 2 Kit” that has a .25oz each of the Cuticle & Skin Gel, Formula 2 & oil therapy that retails as a set for $17.50… I get this EVERY quarter & I love it, but this time around I will actually be doing a giveaway for my girls in a Facebook group I love called Show Me Your Top Coats 🙂 These products are amazing and I know those girls can appreciate pampered fingers and toes!

Next was another must have for me. Skindinavia’s Makeup Finishing Spray. I never leave the house without a few good spritz of this miracle stuff! Unfortunately, hang up #2– my bottle looked like it had seriously been through the ringer! It was dirty & beat up! I’m not sure why & it’s obvious this happened before shipping because everything else in my box is nice and clean 🙁 This 4oz bottle retails for $29.99

From the new selections this month, I chose this NeoStrata Intensive Eye Therapy. You might be thinking to yourself, Alison you don’t have wrinkles  & you’re right. I don’t- not yet. But I’m a firm believer that you should take care of your skin BEFORE it gets to the “point of no return” and I don’t believe you can really “reverse” wrinkles. This is meant to lift and firm, smooth lines and boost collagen. This .5oz  cream retails for $75- I can’t wait to try it!

Hang up #3, this is my Snowberry Smoothing Eye Serum, I’m on an eye treatment kick lately and I was really looking forward to this product. This should have been a FULL SIZE .5oz product worth $53 (see my packing slip below! & check online at Beautyfix.com) but instead I received a .24oz sample from their “Snowberry The Sample Collection”…worth $7.67 (based on the price of that set)…so do I feel like I was cheated out of a $45.33 value?! Yes, as a matter of fact I do. I’d like my full sized Snowberry, please…

My packing slip, mostly to prove I’m not some crazy complainer!

Next was a samples from Guinot. I had never heard of them before but put “peel” and “radiance” on a bottle and you’re darn skippy that I will want to try it! Why does the bottle look so weird and misshapen?! Because I squeezed out some product as soon as it arrived and it’s like heaven on my skin! It starts as luminescent gel and dissolves. It is the coolest thing ever! Then you just rinse it away for beautiful, glowing skin! This .49 sample would be worth $10.95 based on the full size but you can purchase this sample size for $7

Another new selection this quarter was a mascara, I couldn’t resist! I have to be honest and say I have not opened this to look at the brush. I have way too many mascaras open right now, but I can’t wait to get to this one! This retails for $24 and one word- BLING!!

Next was another new item from Eminence. I tried their body lotion last time and really liked it. This is their Cinnamon Kiss Lip Plumper. It smells like a sweet cinnamon candy. It makes my lips tingle, but not in a burning sort of way. It a way I can’t really describe. I’ll have to do some before and after picture on this one because I think it really works- this stuff also tastes like straight up Big Red gum- a personal favorite of mine. This is full size and retails for $26

My last product was also new this quarter and it combined two things I can never have too much of: Nick Chavez & Volume! I won’t be trying this out for a while because my hair is freshly died and I’ve got some amazing Kenra products I’m using, but I’ll hit this up soon enough!  This is Nick Chavez’s Advanced Volume Shampoo and it’s a whopping 80z! This retails for $22.

So, aside from my series of unfortunate events, my Beautyfix was pretty freaking awesome, like always! My value was $238.15 (would have been $283.28 if my Snowberry sample was correct :/ ) I’ll be contacting them about these issues and keeping you all up to date. For a $50 subscription, I’m hoping they will do something to keep my trust.

Have you tried BeautyFix yet?!

    Great review! I absolutely LOVE Beautyfix! I think it’s one of those sub boxes that is so much more worth the other “pick your own” kits out there (beautyarmy is one) and I love that you get a great selection to choose from PLUS the full sizes!

    I got the Nailtiques set last quarter, such an awesome deal! Your poor makeup bag LOL

    I think the only thing we got in common was the snowberry eye cream. Crossing fingers they fix it for you (and me!)

    Enjoy your goodies 🙂

    I’m so glad you posted this review as I have a question about the beauty fix orders. I ordered one in July after your summer post review and wasn’t sure when the fall beauty fix orders came out. I haven’t seen any emails about making a new order or what their new fall products are. I guess I should contact CS but when did you get an email about picking your new fall items? thanks for any insight.
