Pretty Fix Collections' May Collection

Hello Pinay Beauties! I am back with a new post and this is about a new beauty subscription service that I recently found online. The owner has been very generous and sent me their May Collection box to share with you guys. Let's get to know Pretty Fix Collections.



Who is Pretty Fix Collections?
Pretty Fix Collections is a beauty subscription that provides carefully selected samples of cosmetics, skincare and other beauty products straight from Singapore, Korea and other countries. At ₱599/month, you will get 5 to 6 samples delivered to you free of charge.

What makes them different to the other beauty subscription boxes that we have  here in the country? I think most of their samples are from known Singaporean/Korean brands, which is different from the brands that the others offer.

Let me share with you guys their May Collection.


The samples came in this very compact and sealed packaging made out of thick paper. I hope they could change their packaging though to a more sturdy one since mine came a bit deformed. But I am not sure if it's because of the improper handling by the shipper.

Here are the items inside:



BODY SHOP AMAZONIAN WILD LILY SHOWER GEL


 This smells really nice and it lathers pretty well. I think the sample can last you a week to 2 weeks.


BODY SHOP PEPPERMINT SMOOTHING FOOT SCRUB


I've heard of this before and I am excited to try it. It is a gel-based scrub to exfoliate rough and callused skin.


BODY SHOP RAINFOREST SHINE SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER



These two smells really nice but I haven't got the chance to try it yet. Promises to make your hair look healthy looking, radiant and shiny.


THE FACE SHOP MILD PAPAYA PEELING


In all honesty, I didn't what this was because everything is written in Korean but according to Pretty Fix, you will need to massage it on the face for 30 seconds then rinse off and it's supposed to help to remove dead skin cells. I'm kinda hesitant to try it so I might give it to someone.


SILICON KEY CASE


I like to think that this is a bonus item, and it looks cute as well. Very useful to keep your keys and key cards inside. It can also be used as a bag accessory. I am not sure though if I can use mine since I don't keep keys and I don't have any access cards, but still very cute.


My thoughts about the May Collection? I think it's okay, but not great. I mean, the products are all authentic from Singapore and we all know how much Body Shop costs here in the Philippines, but I find that it is still lacking. I understand though because Pretty Fix is fairly new in the business, and I know that they have a lot of room to grow. In fact, I saw a glimpse of their June Collection and it looks very promising since it is composed of makeup products.

Is the ₱599 subscription fee worth it? I think yes. It actually has the same price as other beauty boxes, and yes, I believe Pretty Fix has a long way to go but I strongly believe that they will become one of the big players when it comes to beauty subscription boxes.

If you are interested to get Pretty Fix's June Collection, just go to their Facebook page and feel free to send them a message. They are actually very accommodating so do not hesitate to contact them and ask questions.

By the way, I just saw this photo in their page of the June Collection.

Please know that Pretty Fix Collections sent me their May Collection for review but everything written in this post is of my true and honest opinion. Thank you so much for reading guys and stay tuned for more reviews and a mini haul. Goodluck!

    Cool that we have something like that here in the Philippines. Michelle Phan also has that kind of business (www.ipsy.com), but I think they just ship to Canada and the U.S.

      We actually have lots of beauty subscription boxes here in the Philippines now, the most popular is BDJ Box. :) I would love to receive an Ipsy bag as well, but sadly they do not ship internationally.

    Interesting! I haven't heard of this subscription yet. I love Korean beauty products so I might just give this a try!

    Hi Maica! It's nice to read a review from you about their May Collection. I've just received my first beauty box from them this week for September Collection. So far, I like what I have because I'm into mascara, lip gloss and lipstick. ^_^
