By Elisabeth @onecutedoc

Hey Beauty and Subscription Box Lovers! These are the subscription box products I received and tested this week. These are my honest opinions and suggestions. I have linked where you can buy the products if you so choose. I hope you learn more about the products subscription boxes offer. I really enjoy testing these products. Let me know what you think in the comments below!

PRODUCT TESTING: 

DS Laboratories Revita.Cor Hair Stimulating Conditioner ($29.99)

IMG_4792

I received this product (deluxe sample) in my February 2016 Beautyfix Box. This conditioner is really nice. It works amazingly with the DS Laboratories shampoo. My hair felt so soft and looked so shiny after. I don’t know if I would purchase the FULL SIZE because it is pretty pricey. However, I will continue to use it and I really loved it. It really did stimulate my scalp and left a cool feeling.

NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray ($7.99)

I received this product in my Spring BeautyCon BFF Box. This is a really nice setting spray and it is so affordable. It sprays evenly and didn’t leave my face feeling sticky. It did keep me matte but not overly matte. You could still see my highlight and I loved it. It doesn’t have a strong smell at all and it feels very refreshing. It did keep my makeup in place and I will be using this all the time now. I highly recommend it!

I received this product in my Spring 2016 FabFitFun Box. I love these types of products. They are so relaxing and remind me to take time for myself. I love that this pack has both the gloves and the socks. You leave them on for at least 20 minutes and then rub the remaining product in your skin. My feet felt so soft after and I really liked the lotion. My hands felt nice too but they were a bit sticky. However, the sticky feeling didn’t last long. I really enjoyed this pack.

Patchology FlashPatch Eye Gels ($50)

I received this product (sample) in my April 2016 BeautyFix Box. I love eye gels so much even though I don’t really notice a huge difference. These were really nice and very cooling. They did help to depuff my eyes. I also enjoyed that the gel has some sparkle in it. The sparkle doesn’t transfer but it is nice to look at. I don’t know if I would repurchase the FULL SIZE because there are more affordable options. However, I did enjoy these.

Hikari Lipstick in Peony ($13)

I received this product in my April 2016 Lip Monthly Bag. I really like Hikari products and this lipstick was really nice. It wasn’t too drying and was very comfortable on the lips. It didn’t last a very long time on the lips. However, it is very easy to apply and doesn’t bleed. I love this shade and it so fun for spring. I don’t know if I would repurchase, but I really like it!

Don’t use it enough

Glamour Dolls Gloss Snob ($1.99)

IMG_6540

I received this product in my April 2016 Lip Monthly Bag. I don’t like this product at all! It is so inexpensive and pigmented. I was really hoping to love it. However, I can’t stand the smell or taste at all. It smells so fake and is really sickening. I felt really nauseous after using it. I couldn’t even leave it on my lips long enough to take a picture. I am sure Glamour Dolls has great products but this was not one of them. I would stay away from these. It was also very patchy and hard to apply. I just didn’t like it at all!

BareMinerals Pure Plush Gentle Deep Cleansing Foam ($22)

I received this product in my Limited Edition Mother’s Day Glossybox. This is a very nice cleanser and I have quickly become obsessed with it. It foams up amazingly and is so gentle. It really does deep cleanse my skin. It has a very and I mean very subtle scent. It just feels so nice on the skin and I will definitely continue using it. I am obsessed!

Replenix Pure Hydration Hyaluronic Acid Serum ($69)

IMG_6946

I received this product (sample) in my May 2016 Beautyfix Box. I really like this serum but it is very pricey. It feels great on the skin and really does hydrate my skin. It is a pretty thick serum but on the face, it sinks in so quickly. I haven’t noticed any huge difference besides my skin feels very hydrated. I really enjoy this serum so much.

Babor Doctor Babor Derma Cellular Collagen Booster Cream ($154)

IMG_6945

I received this product (sample) in my May 2016 Beautyfix Box. This is an okay cream that is extremely expensive. I would not repurchase because the price is outrageous. I didn’t notice any difference in my skin. It felt nice and sunk into the skin quickly. However, many of my face creams do the same thing and they are so much more affordable. I don’t have aging skin so this product might work better for that skin type. It didn’t irritate my skin or break me out. I like it but not enough to repurchase.

Just okay and very pricey

Glotherapeutics Vital Eye Cream ($40)

IMG_6947

I received this product (sample) in my May 2016 Beautyfix Box. I am beyond impressed with this eye cream. I have really dark eye circles and I could notice an improvement after just one use from this eye cream. It is a medium thickness and sinks into the skin very quickly. It hydrates my under eyes very well. My dark circles look so much lighter and I can’t wait to see if they continue to improve. If so, this will be my holy grail eye cream. It doesn’t sting or irritate my eyes at all. I just LOVE it!
