Beauty Fix Beauty Box

 RATING (out of 5 stars): 3.5 stars

COST: $49.99 (shipped quarterly)

THE SKINNY: This is one of the most customizable beauty boxes I have seen and at first glance I really like it. The Beauty Fix box is distributed by Dermstore and is shipped quarterly, containing eight products that you select from a pretty long list (currently more than 50 items).

The box is a little pricey at first glance, but you will get your money's worth if you choose well. There are marquee brands to choose from and some in large sizes. The $49.99 box comes out once per quarter, making the monthly price about what you would pay for other boxes.

Here's what I got in my first box:
  • Nick Chavez Advanced Volume Shampoo, 8 ounces
  • Glytone Acne Treatment Spray, 2 ounces
  • RAWcolor All-Over Eye Shadow Brush
  • Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Eye Shadow (full size)
  • Jane Iredale Eye Gloss Liquid Eye Shadow (full size)
  • Carriva Mascara (full size)
  • Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester 14, 0.17 ounces
  • Natural Energy EBoost Vitamins, 5 count
  • Plus your first order comes with a small train case
The Jane Iredale Eye Shadow retails for $19 and the 8-ounce shampoo retails for $37 -- so in just two items I got my money's worth. The box also includes options for beauty-related items as well such as vitamins and foot petal shoe inserts.

You can also complete reviews to earn Dermstore gift cards.

I was quite disappointed in the presentation though. Every other box I have order came immaculately packaged. This was just a brown box full of products.

I also have to wonder how often the selection changes. Will there be new items for me next quarter?

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep. Future selection will determine if I keep getting this box.
