BoxyCharm Subscription Box Review – June 2016
BoxyCharm is a full-size beauty and makeup subscription box. They always provide a great value compared the cost of the box.
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 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 and Canada
Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.
Farmacy Hydrating Coconut Gel Mask Medley (3 Pack) – Value $24
(This pack is identical to the mask pack I linked to with the exception that this box has messaging that this is made exclusively for Boxycharm and not for resale.)
I’ve become a little obsessed with the Farmacy brand since discovering it through POPSUGAR Must Have! I’ve loved every single product from their line I’ve tried so far, so I couldn’t wait to try these masks!
(Plus I love that this item alone is worth more than the cost of the box! Well done, Boxycharm!)
This is a standard sheet mask – wear it for about 25 minutes, then let any remaining formula absorb into your skin.
I tried this out last night and loved the results – super hydrating and the scent was great too. (I got a little of the formula on my hands, and it was a great hand moisturizer, too!)
OFRA Cosmetics Oil Control Pressed Powder – Value $39.95
This powder works well (BUT!) I recommend using it sparingly. I’m used to translucent powder that I can pack on without ever seeing it, but I used heavy brushstrokes with this pan, and it definitely showed up as white.
But now that I have the hang of it, I’m a fan! Plus this pan should last for a long time!
Cougar Beauty Face and Body Shimmer – Value $27
This brand is new to me, and I’m impressed! A lot of shimmery powders can come off as sparkly, but the particles in this powder are super fine, so you end up with a look that is more of an overall glow. Not a question from your husband like, “Are you wearing glitter on your face?”
I also tried mixing this with lotion for the body shimmer part of the product. It worked well and gave my legs a healthy looking overall sheen. I think I’ll stick to using this as a face powder, though – I’d go through it too quickly otherwise.
Girlactik Beauty Precise Eyeliner Marker – Value $20
Eyeliners aren’t the most exciting thing to get in subscription boxes, but this one does work well! I don’t have the smoothest hand when it comes to applying liquid liner pens, but this one went on so easily. Here it is swatched:
LVX Nail Lacquer in Serene – Value $18
(Looks like colors will vary for subscribers since the info card didn’t specify a shade).
I like the LVX brand a lot – their formulas are great, plus cruelty-free and vegan! Here is this periwinkle creme shade swatched:
Verdict: This is the type of Boxycharm box I love! The value is amazing ($129) and I will use every single item in the box. Everything is full-size too! My favorite products are the Farmacy masks, and the Cougar powder, but really everything is a win!
