This post is way late but I thought I would go ahead and share what I received in the June BeautyFix box:

Cost of Box:  $24.95 (plus tax if applicable, includes free shipping)
Total Box Value:  $152.62
Impressions:  As usual, I am impressed with the retail value of this box.  I also like the large sizes of the products included.  Unfortunately, I was not really excited about the products featured in this month's box.  I do not use dry shampoo, tinted moisturizers, or self tanners.  The shaving cream they featured is a men's shaving cream and distinctly smells like men's shave cream.  If it had been for women, had a neutral scent, or was even scentless, I would have been fine with it.  Maybe they threw it in because Father's Day was in June.  Either way, I would really rather not pay for a women's beauty box and get products that were clearly intended for male customers.  I'm also starting to get on sunscreen overload and the little samples included here are barely enough for one use considering how much I apply.  I gave everything except the cleanser, toner, mask and Roloxin away to coworkers and receptionists.  I like trying new cleanser and toner samples and they're useful for travel and baskets in guest bathrooms.  I received a sample of the WEI mask in a Birchbox before and liked it so I'm glad to have another sample of it.  I've never used Roloxin before and fortunately don't have wrinkles yet but I think this might still be useful to help combat the effects of late nights.

Overall, the June box has been the least favorite of the BeautyFix boxes I've received so far.  The value, number of products, and product sizes are really nice but they're just not products I'm interested in.  The July box will be arriving soon and I'm hoping it will have more useful items for me!
