  1. Yah👍👍👍👍
    Boxycharm is truly the best.

  2. Anyone get their box yet? Mine says .1 pound .5 kg. Not sure which variation that is. This box seems to be a toss up, not sure how I feel.

    • Waiting for mine. The weight is .7 lbs.

      • My box is showing .7 lbs as well, it’s set to arrive on Saturday. Anxious to see what our variation is!

    • I recieved my box today Friday. It’s variation 1 with the sponge and the perfume. The weight was .7

  3. I do not care for either variation and really hope I do not get the sponge. I have this same sponge that I still haven’t opened from a few months ago from another box I forget which subscription. I usually end up getting some items that are not shown in the variations or spoilers. I hope Boxy Charm improves it seems they have been going down hill the past few months. I use to be so excited to get my Boxy Charm now I just can’t wait for my subscription to be finished. What ever is going on with them I really hope they can work it out because in my opinion this use to be one of the best boxes out there.

    • Agreed. I have been subscribed for over a year now and this is the first box I am 100% unimpressed with. There has been the lipstick or bronzer/highlighter fail here and there but usually I’m so in love with the other stuff it doesn’t matter. But this whole box is a fail. Both of them. They just had that Vintage highlighter 2 boxes ago and it was HORRIBLE. That Glow was just in an Ipsy bag and it smells like plastic pool toys. IMO they should have gone with PUR After Glow Powder instead of their bronzer. I understand if they have more subscribers than product so the solution was product variation but then you should be able to choose which box you get.

      For me the only thing I would use out of all 8 products is the sponge LOL I’ve been wanting something just to take off my GlamGlow face mask bc it gets gritty black into them and its hard to get out. So this will be a dedicated mask removing sponge for me. Possibly you could find an alternative use for yours that you already have as well 🙂

  4. This will be my last boxycharm box.. I’ve been happy so far but really, a don’t even use bronzers or perfume and I have enough brushes, so it seems like there will be almost nothing in this box that i will use and I could use that money to buy something that i love. Boxycharm has been good but i’m done.

  5. This confirms it I might cancelling after February there lately is a good box and a terrible box I do not want a sponge and perfume I like many ladies only wear one scent!
    I loved boxycharm until the last few months but I’m done! I always get the bad box!

    Why doesn’t boxycharm listen?
    I already got the highlighter and now everyone get highlighter:(

    • I thought I typed I am cancelling after February I’m sorry but my phone is acting up!
      Basically there are only two things I like the nice fan brush not the cheap one and the nail treatment!
      Boxycharm is stressful instead of fun!

      • They are so inconsistent these last months. The girls who are super excited are either new to subs or new to BC. Both are great for them, not so much for those of us who’ve been with them awhile. I plan on cancelling also. I WISH I had cancelled before I was billed for this box.
        Their CS don’t listen either. So many have complained about the variations, yet it continues…including value variations.

  6. I’d rather get the sponge than the bronzer. The unboxing I watched, it was just too orangey and I’d never use it. (Unless I can make it work for eye shadow)

    I liked the other sponge they sent, some months ago – a different brand than this one. It’s still hanging in my shower cause it’s cute. 🙂

  7. I don’t know about these variations. I would be super upset to get perfume. I only wear one scent and my biggest complaint about other subs is getting terrible perfume I’ll never use. I don’t need a konjac sponge. Lotion is okay. Praying for the cheek stain and not another bronzer. I don’t use bronzer enough to justify buying a full sized one. The Temptu liquid is still sitting around unused. This month is my least favorite since I started subbing to BoxyCharm.

    • I totally agree with you.

      • Me three.

        • Me four.

          • Me five

  8. I wish the bronzer and highlighter came exasperate. i got the vintage highlighter in another shade a couple months ago. The shade is nice, but the formula is just okay. I have a lot of highlighters that I like a lot better. I am curious to try the bronzer though. I just wish that I wouldn’t have to waste the highlighter.

  9. I was about to buy a new konjac sponge, hope I get that variation and save some money. They aren’t normally over ten dollars, but such a handy item, would rather stockpile these than weird shades of stain and gloss that I never get around to using from these boxes

    • I could use another konjac sponge to. Mine is getting pretty wore out. Was trying to make do until I got another 1. But at the same time, I got the glow body butter in my ipsy a few months back and loved it. So I would be happy with either of those. As long as I don’t get the perfume. I’m not big on trying new perfume. I have 2 perfumes that I use, and don’t use any others. And it’s a rare thing that I find a new 1 that my husband likes. Lol this is my second box, and it seems to be a good 1. December’s was better. Except I didn’t get the ofra liquid lipstick in my December box. But my cousin gets the box to, and by the looks of the color of her ofra lipstick, not something I’d use anyway. But boxycharm was wonderful about taking care of my missing item.

  10. I am a first time subscriber and do not like both variations. I wish there was an eyeshadow palette. Eyeshadows are the main reason I joined boxycharm.

    • Hang in there, another one will come. We’ve got one every month, for the last few months. I’m sure they’ll send another one.

  11. So it’s either one variation or another? They won’t include products from each? This is my first boxycharm. I’m really hoping I don’t get the perfume, I hate receiving perfumes in sub boxes…

  12. Getting to much makeup. I Get Boxycharm, Ipsy, Birchbox, Play by Sephora, Beauty Box 5, Glamour Doll Eyes. I’m going to keep Ipsy. Undeicided if am keeping Boxycharm. I want to try Teeblox and enjoy leggings and maybe loot for her.

  13. I hope I get the sponge, sounds intriguing. I wouldn’t mind trying the perfume. Hope to get cheek stain. So happy for a break from eye shadow pallets

    • I have bought the sponge a few times, and I love it. Fair warning, I’d you get it, you’ll want to buy it regular in the future, but they are made really well, and last long enough that the cost is reasonable. Agree completely on the eye shadow. I think it’s an item geared towards drawing new subs and keep higher est value of the box.

  14. Not excited about ANY variation 🙁 . Oh well, I’ve loved boxy charm for the last 4 months. They can’t all be winners. The only thing that would salvage this box for me it to get the cheek stain instead of bronzer. Crossing my fingers!

  15. Oh! I hope I get the 2nd variation! Love that perfume and I’m also hoping for the cheek stain to try. I love boxycharm! My fave sub by far! I’m curious about konjac sponges now…

  16. I recieved that konjac sponge unexpectedly in my October box and I was not happy. Then I opened up and gave it a try and I’ve been using it daily ever since. That sponge gives me and my skin life! Its amazing.

  17. I’m excited for my box, I’m not getting any repeats because this is my first box…I was hoping I ordered soon enough to get December’s box but I think I was to late. 🤓

    • Same here. My first box also and I tried to order in time for December’s and missed out.
      Interestingly, I received my How to be a Redhead box today and received an Adesse in that, so hopefully I don’t get the very same thing in this Boxy Charm.

      • Oh and one more thing, I love it when boxes include perfumes. So that would be a win for me. I don’t care for sponges, though, they’d be of no use to me. I have a few already and they are all brand new.

  18. That difference in brush quality and prices though….. 🙁

  19. omg I hate when they send perfumes… how can one perfume could fit thousands of customers?

    • Ugh me too. I have ansomnia and honestly cannot smell a difference between perfumes, just mostly the alcohol in the ones that contain it. They all smell gross and the same if I can smell them at all.
      And I’m currently pregnant and everything makes me nauseous.

  20. I think as cosmetic junkies, we like to see a spot of festive color in a box, a pink or red, an eye color…i think that’s what’s missing in this month’s Boxy.

    • I bet you’re right. That was what happened to me with the Luxury Amazon box. It didn’t have that red Julep nail polish, it had a grayish color instead, and I was sort of let down about the whole box. Totally silly, because I have about 100 red nail polishes. Not really that many, but a lot.

  21. It’s my first time getting the box, will they put something on their website when my box is shipped out, like Ipsy does?

    • They’ll email you.

    • I haven’t received emails when mine have shipped. I’ve checked my spam too.
      I recommend just signing up for a My USPS account with the post office. You can see tracking there. Before it’s transfered but after the label exists, you’ll see something about it sitting with the shipping partner.

  22. I have never been disappointed in Boxycharm, but this month’s box and variations are terrible. I do not like either…I received the highlighter previously, so maybe that is why I am so disappointed.

    • I agree. I love BoxyCharm but I’m not excited for this month. I hope I get the first variation though!

    • There’s an unboxing on Youtube where she swatches the mineral bronzer. It’s horrible! Quite orange tinted. I am hoping I don’t get it…which means I will.

    • Me too. I love Boxy, but this month absolutely sux. And i DIDNT get a highlighter before…i just dont need one.
