Product: Paula's Choice Clear Regular Strength Daily Skin Clearing Treatment
Retail Value: $17.00 (Full Size)
This is a daily skin clearing treatment for blemish-prone skin. It claims to immediately reduce blemishes and visibly reduces red marks. I can't test the effectiveness on acne, but I like that it has a matte finish. It also has great reviews so I assume it works well.
Product: Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash (1 oz)
Retail Value: $3.64
I recently received this foaming face wash in another subscription box. It's a 2-in-1 cleanser and exfoliator, and cleans well.
Product: Patchology Flashmasque Facial Sheet - Exfoliate (1 Mask)
Retail Value: $6.25
An exfoliating facial mask ideal for skin with rough, uneven texture and a drab appearance. It contains lactic acid and papain to dissolve and remove dead skin cells while aloe helps to minimize irritation.
Product: Medicell Labs Advanced Redness Relief Hydrating Cream
Retail Value: $60.00 (Full Size)
The Redness Relief cream from Medicell Labs instantly relieve the appearance of redness, and helps to smooth and soften dry and rough skin. The cream is formulated without synthetic fragrances, dyes, mineral oil and parabens to avoid potential irritants.
Product: Glytone Mild Gel Wash (1 oz)
Retail Value: $4.78
This is a medical grade mild gel wash. It is intended for normal to oily skin. It helps with fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, or photodamaged skin. You can use it twice daily or as directed by a physician. It seems very effective on acne prone skin.
Product: SmartFX SmartEye Wrinkle Lift
Retail Value: $60.00 (Full Size)
According to the box, this wrinkle lift works in 60 seconds to help reduce the appearance of crow's feet, fine lines, wrinkles, under-eye bags and puffiness. It contains a proprietary complex of "micro-fillers" that works to plump, fill and firm the skin.
Product: Keranique Scalp Stimulating Shampoo & Volumizing Keratin Conditioner (1 oz each)
Retail Value: $7.50
I like that BeautyFIX included both shampoo and conditioner. I haven't tried this brand before, so I'm excited to them out. The reviews seems mixed. From what I can gather, this shampoo is not appropriate for everyone's hair as it may have too much protein.
Product: Alterna Daily Densifying Foam
Retail Value: $36.00 (Full Size)
This is a lightweight mousse that helps hair to become instantly fuller and dense while strengthening to prevent breakage. I actually don't like to put much products in my hair, but it does have positive reviews from people who have used it.

Final Thoughts: First of all, I am glad BeautyFIX did not include a bunch of little mini samples this month. All of the products are either deluxe or full-size. There are quite a few items for acne prone skin, but may be helpful to some subscribers. The overall value is amazing for a $25 subscription.
