BoxyCharm Beauty Subscription Box Review – March 2015
BoxyCharm is a full-size and deluxe-size makeup and beauty subscription box. When they first started they were featuring drugstore brands like Revlon and L’Oreal, but lately they’ve been using mid-tier and high-end brands. (If you check out my earlier BoxyCharm reviews, you can definitely see the improvement in curation!)
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: BoxyCharm
The Cost: $21 a month
The Products: 5-6 drugstore beauty items that will include nail care, skin care, makeup, haircare, fragrance and more. (At least 4 of those items will be full-sized).
Ships to: US
Each box comes with a card detailing the products included.
Previse Nutrify Skin Type 1-6 Universal Tonic – FULL SIZE! Value $48
This is one of those products that even after reading the instructions I’m still not exactly sure what it is. “Nutrify Liposomal Tonic 1-6 is our latest bio-healthy innovation to help hydrate skin plus fight free radicals and surface irritants.”
It has a few different uses as well according to their website:
Nutrify 1-6 is ideal for those with exceptionally sensitive skin who may have tolerance concerns with the existing Previse Nutrify series.
Patients receiving Botox, laser and other medical treatments respond well to Universal Nutrify 1-6. As a chilled application, Nutrify should help minimize swelling and some redness while speeding the healing process.
I tried it out and like the smooth finish it left on my skin, but I’m not sure exactly what it does besides that!
tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint in Charmed – FULL SIZE! Value $24
Yay for tarte anything! I like their LipSurgence lip crayons a lot – they have a glossy finish, and a sweet minty flavor.
The box also came with a coupon card for 20% off any tarte purchase from 4/1-4/10.
Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo Spray – 1.2 oz Value $9
The card lists “Oscar Blandi Hair Products” so I’m assuming there will be some variation in this item for subscribers. I’ve tried this dry shampoo as a powder before and I like it as a spray too. I was worried it would be too white, but it sprayed on clear.
LVX Nail Lacquer in Lemondrop – FULL SIZE! Value $14
Subscribers will receive either this shade or Mynt or Deco. I think I would have preferred either of the other two colors over this one, but they are all nice Spring shades, so no complaints!
OFRA Eyeliner in Navy – FULL SIZE! Value $13
I’m never too excited about getting eyeliner pencils, but I like the pigment of this blue eyeliner. (This item is listed as just OFRA Eyeliner on the info card, so I’m guessing colors will vary).
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $108. Boxycharm pretty much always knocks it out of the park with value on their boxes. I like the brands and products they’ve included this month, and if I figure out exactly how to use the Previse tonic effectively, this will be a great month for me.
