    BECCA Cosmetics Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder, 10 g – Retail Value $39.00

    (All subscribers will receive this item in one of two shades.)

    I love BECCA. They are the brand behind my favorite lipstick! This powder is really interesting because it has a cooling and sort of wet sensation when you apply it. The lighter shade is a perfect translucent shade on my fair skin, and although I always find loose powders on the messy side, this does apply beautifully. There is a mesh barrier inside which helps cut down on too much product at once and there is also a built-in barrier that keeps the powder cool/wet. I use loads of translucent powder so this is a total winner for my stash.

    • light pink tube of beauty oil

      Wander Beauty Glow Ahead Illuminating Face Oil, 25 ml – Retail Value $42.00

      (All subscribers will receive this item.)

      First, I would never classify this as an oil formula, so if that “oil” aspect turned you off at first glance, you might like this more than you thought. It is much more of a lightweight serum that looks really pink and sparkly when you apply a few drops then quickly disappears when rubbed into your skin. It actually disappears TOO much in my opinion, and I didn’t notice much of a difference in my skin. I found that it absorbed pretty well, but Marne did mention she thought it felt sticky on her skin. While it did give both of us minimal glow and some dewiness, I think we were both pretty underwhelmed.

      • peach colored box and white bottle

        1 of 2

      • back of packaging with more info

        2 of 2

         

        Peach & Lily Glass Skin Refining Serum, 40 ml – Retail Value $39.00

        (All subscribers will receive this item OR Tarte Big Ego Mascara.)

        I was SO hoping I would get this item rather than the mascara, mainly because I have never, ever tried anything from this brand. This is a clear, unscented serum packed with niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, peptides, and other ingredients that are great for your skin. The main draw here for myself would be its boast of reducing pore size, something I sorely need. I have used it for two nights now and my skin does look a little more even, though this is absolutely one of those products I need to try out for a longer time period.

        • hot pink eyeshadow

          1 of 3

        • closeup shot of eyeshadow texture

            Ace Beaute Huckleberry & French Vanilla Glimmer Shadow Duo, 2.1 g each – Retail Value $25.00

            (This is a variant item.)

            The formula of these shadows reminds me very much of the Colourpop Super Shock Shadows, except these are significantly more expensive. They both share that powder/cream hybrid formula that is super pigmented and ridiculously easy to blend. Sadly, I really don’t love these colors. I feel like this summer has been full of ’80s-inspired eyeshadow (is this the Stranger Things effect?) and I am more than a little over it. It looks like one of the variants was a different pair that I would have liked much more, but that is the luck of the draw!

            The payoff is good, I just don’t like these shades.

            • brown colored lip liner pencil

              1 of 3

            • mauve colored tip

              2 of 3

            • color dipped end

              3 of 3

               

              Steve Laurent Lip Liner in ‘Vogue’, 1 g –  Retail Value $15.00

              (This is a variant item.)

              Finally, our last item is a lip liner in a shade I quite like. It is a dirty, natural pink and it applies very smooth once you get it going. It will complement many of my lipstick shades.

              A very natural shade, indeed!

              Verdict: My BoxyCharm box has an overall value of this box is around $160.00, which is outstanding for a $21 box. The downside is that I only really loved about $93 worth of the items (powder, serum, liner). This is still a really great value takeaway though, so I am really disinclined to complain too much, even if the highest value item was a dud for me personally. From my perspective, the powder and serum alone make this box worth it, and I am really excited about them. I hope that this is the beginning of the end of ’80s shadows and we can move towards a more subdued fall look. Or maybe just a break from eyeshadows and some incredible lipsticks instead? I also think it is worth noting that there were no brushes this month, which was a welcome change since this box has delivered so many high-quality sets over the last few months. BoxyCharm will always be one of my faves because of the high value, even if I end up re-gifting some of the contents.

              To Wrap Up:

              Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes! These boxes do sell out though, so if you love it, hurry.

              Value Breakdown: At $21.00 for this box, here is approximately what you are paying per product:

              • BECCA Powder $5.12
              • Wander Face Oil $5.51
              • Peach & Lily Serum $5.12
              • Ace Beaute Shadow Duo $3.28
              • Steve Laurant Liner $1.97

              Alternatively, the average cost of each of the 5 items is $4.20.

              I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

              1. Yup pr boxes got the serum. That or new subs

              2. I used the Becca powder and it looked cakey and made my wrinkles more pronounced. I also looked old. I used a brush. Am I doing something wrong or does it not work for dry mature skin. I used It cosmetics cc foundation. I used the eyeshadows same shades they look more sheer but cute. The Wanda primer didn’t do anything for me. I got a $7 eyeliner by Hollywood & Vine it was a Khol liner. The Tart mascara was good.

              3. I have subscribed to Boxy for 1.5 years & this is just about the last straw for me. I’m so sick of Tarte everything & this mascera instead of a serum – there is no comparison. Also for sure only a certain few got the serum because there’s a mile long list of ISO for it in the trade groups. The variations weren’t bad at first, then tolerable & now they are completely offensive. One more chance to follow my preferences & choices – then I’m out. Completely bored to tears with this box and their bait & switch tactics.

              4. Everyone is on here talking about a half-full Becca powder but did anyone else receive a Wander Glow Oil with the seal already broken on it??? Last month I received an obviously swatched Butter palette that I wrote into them about and they literally told me it was no way them but they can’t control what happens to the box once it leaves the facility and enters the delivery system. They seriously had the audacity to insinuate a postal worker opened up my box and swatched my palette. I was told they would send me a replacement one with my AUG box and it was not sent. Oh, but they sent an opened product for the second month in a row !! Ladies, there is obviously some QC and QA issues going on in fulfillment and I suggest you all start inspecting your products thoroughly upon unboxing. After my Sept boxyluxe I’m canceling BC and will happily spend my money elsewhere! The Skin Fix boxes have been tempting lately!

              5. To everyone complaining about the Becca being half full that’s how it comes. I got it from Sephora when it first came out and it was like this.
                On a side note I was allowed to pick my product between the mascara or serum. I picked the serum and they sent me the mascara. Beat.

              6. This was really disappointing. What is the point of Boxycharm even having a beauty profile quiz if they just send whatever they want. I said that I don’t use mascara or eyeliner and only use neutral/nude eye shadows. I specified that my beauty concerns were pores, texture and fine lines. So the perfect items would have been the glass skin serum, maybe the lip liner and the peach/bronze version of the colourpop-dupe eye shadows. What I got was the mascara I can’t use, NEON purple and silver eyeshadows and a Dollar Store kohl BLACK eyeliner that’s just a hot smudgy mess. The skin oil is just meh. Luckily the Becca powder I got was the lighter version and is worth the cost of the entire box, but I’m really sad I didn’t get to try any other new products since that’s the whole reason I subscribe.

              7. I am just so excited that I didn’t receive ANY eye shadows or eye shadow palettes!!!!!!

              8. I didn’t get the serum either just that tarte mascara and those ugly eyeshadows :/

              9. I received my box today. I got the Becca powder, tarte mascara, Lashaholics eyelashes, Wander oil and pink glitter Barbie mask. Not excited about the Barbie mask because of the glitter eventhough I love peel off masks, and don’t use face oil. Everything else will be used. I’m loving the powder so it’s the redeeming item for this box. I received variation 9♡. My box weighs 0.8 lbs if that helps anyone.

              10. I think the issues are multiple.

                There is such a HUGE disparity between the Tarte Mascara and the Serum. One is an interesting serum which is worth more and the other is a black mascara. How in the world do they even compare in terms of either/or. It’s hard to imagine anyone whether they are a new subscriber or veteran subscriber really panting to try a new black mascara.

                Also the serum is a brand that is one that hasn’t appeared in other subscriptions as I can recall versus Tarte which appears multiple times each month. And again, not even a coveted Tarte item. I would imagine people would be less ticked if it were Shape Tape versus serum.

                And there seems to be a whackadoodle or intentional percentage of serum versus mascara. I have no idea whether intentionally influencers and review sites received the serum but it certainly appears that way based on boxes received by we “little people”.

                And mascara seems to be a particularly egregious alternative. Perhaps repeating myself but is there anyone who actually lusts after black mascara by any brand – well maybe if it were Chanel mascara or Marc Jacobs :-).

                I’ll hang on to boxy a bit longer because generally the box isn’t so patently a bait and switch in terms of spoilers. However, just from a PR point of view, this is not a great move. If they wanted to make this kind of wildly disparate alternative, far better not to actually release them as alternatives but just quietly screw over the people who received mascara rather than announcing so publicly.

                • I agree. If a Tarte mascara was in place of another mascara or eyeliner type product it would not have been so disappointing. I’m going to stick around for the September luxe but after that, I’ll stay with boxes that have do not have variations. I’ve already dropped my Ipsy GBP and my August regular box will be my last. FFF is on the chopping block too after fall. I’m really enjoying the skincare boxes that don’t have variations (Boxwalla, Beauty Heroes, etc) and am giving Box of Style and Oui Please a chance over FFF.

                • Agree if it going to put a serum and dnt have enough than put another serum from a different t brand

              11. Is the Becca powder supposed to be half full????

                • It’s based on weight..not volume. I bought one at ulta and it looks half full. Hopefully, that helps!

                • Yolanda mine was half empty half full as well… Wtg being cheap as hell Becca!!!!! 😫

              12. I received the same box, but my Becca powder is golden. So happy I got the serum, overall I’m happy with the variation I received!

              13. I resubbed to get the eye shadow palette and brushes. I was going to get them on Ebay for about $12. But figured I spend a few more and possible get a great box. I was really interested in the Becca powder and the glass skin serum. I didn’t get the serum :(. I got some cheap dollar store forever long black eyeliner and the 2 clown looking eyeshadows that were in this review. Cancelled immediately. The glow oil is pointless. Once you rub it in it completely disappears. But I do like the eyeshadow palette, brushes and the Becca powder. So not a complete loss. Definitely disappointed and have no desire to continue wit them.

              14. So long Boxy! I got another crappy variation this month! I got the lashes, the Barbie Mask, the Wander Beauty oil, the Tarte Mascara, and the Becca Powder. The Becca Powder was only half full. I realize the value is there, but I consistently get the lower value boxes every month! Just not worth it for me anymore.

                • I dropped my Boxy script several months back and that was one of the main reasons. It seemed to me that I always ended up with the lower quality boxes, as if I was not a genuine member of tne Boxy family! This happened month after month. I rarely got the cool items, only to get tne runner ups. I wonder what their alga rhythm is to determine who gets what and why they do not appear to rotate. I would surmise Boxy is losing a good bit of scripts for,that reason alone. Another top reason why I bailed was my tiredness of getting the same off brand makeup month after month, after month. I have literal boxes of this stuff that I will never use! I have no desire to have a monthly subscription where I receive items below drug store quality. Maybe I am being too harsh or critical.

              15. I got the serum but only because I contacted cs about a missing product last month. I’m excited to try it out. I just got it today.

                • Did anyone else get a HALF EMPTY BECCA SETTING POWDER?

                  NO SERUM HERE either

              16. I actually loved the box this month, Only thing I gave away was the mascara (not a fan of Tarte mascara.)
                I got the Latte and Cotton Candy shadows and actually have the Latte shade on today. Love it, it’s sparkly but not over the top and wonder of wonders it doesn’t make my fine lines look worse. I’ve had it on since 6:30 this morning (It’s 2:30 right now) and it hasn’t creased yet. The Cotton Candy shade is more like Nars Orgasm blush dupe. It looks really orange in the tub, but applies much more pink. I’ve never tried the Color Pop Super Shock shadows and I know they are only 6.00 per shadow. But you get two shadows, that work out to 12.50 per shadow and Ace Beaute is more upmarket than Color Pop.
                I am glad I didn’t receive the serum. I’m about played out on K beauty and I REALLY don’t need yet another serum or moisturizer.

              17. This is the exact variation I’m praying I get.

              18. Questions about the Becca powder: does it have a matte finish at all, is it more dewy or in between? Is it shimmery at all? TIA!

                • Hey Lori! The product is described as a “light-reflecting powder” on the sephora site but I didn’t really notice any shimmer personally. Hope this helps!

                  • Thanks, Megan, it does!

              19. Aw, Megan, you got the exact variant I wanted! I got pretty close, though. I just got the mascara instead of the serum, so I’m happy with my box.

              20. My Becca was HALF EMPTY!!! full size jar HALF EMPTY. GEEZ…. I LOVED IT, it’s addicting putting on bc it feels amazing… The eye shadow tubs are a joke, masks eh, wander face oil, we’ll see and the mascara did ok today but I betcha it’s falling in 4 days bc it was pretty dry. I add contact lenses solution to mascara to make them work and last longer

              21. Damn i wanted the serum. My profile says no more or less of mascara. And i get the mascara 🙄. Urrrrrrhgggg

                • Same here, my profile says I love serums and don’t love mascaras and I got the mascara! 🙁
                  Also, I got a Haruharu sheet mask instead of the lashes (that I wanted) or lip liner and mask is not part of my favorites on my profile. Nobody seems to have received that mask besides me. I wish I have gotten the serum.

                  • I got the two masks, also, plus the absolutely ridiculous variation of that black mascara, the above, “Hey, I am a clown,” eye shadows, face oil (in the summer), and the Becca sweaty clown with the eye shadows, I mean, dewy clown. Thanks for a waste of good money. I will use nothing from this box. I’m ready to take a break after years. The serum sent as an equivalent variant is insulting after subscribing for years.

              22. I got the serum too. Actually, I got the exact same box, but with the golden powder.

                • Wow! You got lucky!

              23. I wanted the serum. I have enough mascara to last me for the rest of my life. *sigh*

              24. I can join all the other voices and say you are the only person I’ve seen to get the serum. I got the box with the Tarte mascara, the Wander oil, the eye shadows (anyone ever see burnt orange cotton candy?), the powder in my shade and the lip liner in BROWN. I am usually not one to complain but Boxy and Beauty Fix have released my inner whiny child this month. Yes, I wanted the serum, although the mascara may be fabulous. The eye shadows are the goldish/orangey ones….the burnt orange one is honestly named cotton candy(?). I am beyond pale and brown lips are just not for me so the liner is a bust. Yes, I could use some makeup magic and make it work, but with the incredible amount of products I have, why would I want to? Wander face oil. Hmmmm. I can’t wait to try the Becca….I hope it’s the saving grace of August. But is it just me or is the Becca packaging kind of a cheaper, lighter plastic than they normally use? It just doesn’t feel substantial as Becca usually does. Not that it matters. But Boxy is one step closer to the chopping block. Oh, Boxy….I knew you when…..

                • I feel your pain. That’s one area that Boxy needs to improve, and that’s tailoring items to customer preferences like Ipsy. I got the same box as you, and I love Megan’s pink shadow. I have a real dislike for peach/coral/orange colors and have expressed that to Boxy on numerous occasions over the years I’ve been a subscriber. However, give Cotton Candy a chance. The texture is really cool, and the color is not as burnt orange as it looks once you apply it.

                • I totally agree ! I mean it’s just unfair reviewers get serum and the others just get mascaras :/ plus your right those eyeshadow colors are awful !!!

              25. I got the serum 🙂 Basically same exact box but darker powder.

                • me too! I got the serum and the gold powder.

              26. I think I’m the only person who loves the Wander Glow Oil! My skin is always dry and flakey so I was more than pleasantly surprised to find that it really helped smooth out my yucky areas and left my skin looking even and bright. I do agree that it’s kind of sticky and the shimmer disappears. But, that’s fine with me as I feel like everything I put on my face has some sort of shimmer factor.

              27. This month was a disappointment. Got everything I didn’t want. I always put no lashes or masks and I got both. I also said rarely mascara but I get one every month. I have so many mascaras and I only open 2 at a time to try to not waste them. The serum would have been great. Congrats to you that did.

                • You do know that Boxy doesn’t customize, at all? No profile is applied to what you get, reviews mean nothing except you get the Charms. I’m so confused by these types of comments.

                  • I’m so confused as to the reason they would have a quiz at all? That’s why people make these comments. Boxycharm invited them.

                    • Amy – Yea, I get that. They have been claiming they’re working on implementing the profiles for over a year now. Probably close to two years. BUT they don’t use them – never have. There’s been twice, 2 different months and 2 different items, where they said “you will receive the right shade for your skintone” (part of the profile) but most everyone still got the wrong shade. I saw SO many complaints and girls trading those items, in various facebook make up trading groups.
                      Any blogs or even on their own fb page – you see many comments that they don’t use profiles yet. Maybe I just spend too much time reading this stuff. lol. but its why I don’t understand how anyone isn’t aware!

                    • I remember Boxy saying at one point that the surveys weren’t for customization of individual boxes, but more for them to get an idea of what their customer base as a whole likes and dislikes. It makes sense if you think of it that way, because if all the customers say that love mascara and hate lip liner, then they would be able to plan future boxes around it. They have been saying that they are working on using them for customization in the future, but I wouldn’t hold your breath, unfortunately.

              28. I just received my box and we have the same feeling the same about all the items I’m so over the shadows now I don’t use bright colors everyday. But I’m overall happy.

                • Although now think I’m thinking I’ll just use the oil inside a lotion so it’ll give a slight shimmer and be good for my overall skin

              29. Be glad you got the unicorn, Megan! You’re the first person that has gotten the serum as far as what I’ve read. Actually for me personally, you got the absolute best version possible this month. And there were many of them. Even more than they advertised/publicized (including in their email ads). I got what seems to be the most popular and most complained about variation (#6), the oil, powder, glitter mask, mascara and lashes (TWO lash products in one box? With all the different products they mailed out? SMH). I wanted the serum SO much. I hadn’t tried the brand either and I strongly prefer skincare to makeup, although I don’t like glitter in either category. Once I saw the eyeshadow spoilers I hoped if not the serum maybe I’d still get those. I didn’t really care too much but ideally the colors I’d have preferred are the ones you got. You certainly don’t need fake lashes and if you’re sick of the 80’s just be glad you didn’t get my box! 😄
                I was recently able to snag a subscription to a new, highly sought after beauty box with quite a waiting list (and only $20 a month) so if my BoxyLuxe variants are as bad next month I think I’ll finally have to break up with my longest subscription ever. 😕

                • I got the exact same version as you, but mine said version 9. I REALLY wanted that serum too! I guess the good thing for me is that since I love trying new mascaras at least I got one I know I haven’t tried yet, so it’s still a bit of a win for me. I’m trying to look on the bright side. Lol

                  • Way to focus on the positive, Luna! I normally try to do that so I can justify keeping the subscription. And mascara is my absolute favorite type of makeup to wear and receive. But while I haven’t tried this one yet, I have so many to try already, and that coupled with the disappointment of the rest of the products in yet another worst-version box is rather frustrating. I think I’m just tired of seeing the good spoilers and never getting them. I know I probably sound like a spoiled child. But Boxy was so much better when I first joined nearly five years ago. For at least a year now I’ve been let down with box contents, poor customer service, etc. but I can’t seem to cut ties. It’s like they know when I’m about to finally do it. Once it was the skincare box. Next it was the pop up shop that kept me going. But I really am getting too many boxes now and simply must cut out the ones that bring me more disappointment and frustration than joy. And I do recognize it’s not all their fault. I truly am an addict and have gotten so many products over the years I am probably significantly harder to please. On the other hand, I don’t always love what I get in IGBP but I rarely if ever feel like other subscribers are getting way better boxes than I get.

                • Yes I got the same crappy box as you. I don’t want the lashes, glitter mask or mascara. This is the most disappointed I’ve been in Boxy in a long time. So many people do not wear lashes, and I get a ton in boxes.

                • I got the same box too and really wanted the serum… I have absolutely no use for the lashes especially…

                • Unfortunately, I got version 9 as well. I like peel off masks, but seriously a Barbie Glitter mask! Can’t imagine anyone older than preteens would want glitter in their mask. Bad enough that every eyeshadow Boxy has sent me this year has been shimmer or glitter except for a couple of matte colors in two of the palettes.

                • I am pretty happy with the serum, I have to admit. I wish I knew the rhyme or reason behind who gets what. It seems super random. What beauty box did you sign up for? Do we need to add it to the review list? 😉

                  • Hey, Megan. Call me paranoid but I think there is some level of rhyme or reason as to who gets what from Boxy. Not necessarily 100% so but if you read comments here and watch YouTube unboxings and read the comments there IS a pattern. Influencers on FB, Insta, You Tube, blogs and a small percentage of “regular” people who are very active on social media as far as a lot of followers or a lot of reposting/sharing about products they like seem to get the majority of the best products/boxes. I watched a video where a bery popular You Tuber compared her PR box with the box she paid for in order to prove this theory wrong. But guess which box had the serum? The free one of course. “Only ONE product is different between the boxes.” True. But it’s the one nearly everyone wanted and hardly anyone got. It’s also one of the very first spoilers they released to reel people in. As for the box she paid for, it was still one of the better boxes. They know who she is whether she pays for it or not. It’s not like she uses an alias and gets it mailed to another address. One of the biggest reasons I believe social media is involved is that Boxycharm is the only one of the MANY beauty subs I’ve ever subscribed to that asks for your Insta handle when you send a message to customer service. And on your profile/quiz. I’ve been a subscriber for around five years but I’m not active on social media. I barely use the accounts I have and that’s only for family and businesses that have better FB pages than their own websites. I do watch You Tube videos a bit but I don’t share them and rarely make comments. I’ve consistently received the worst or close to worst variations in my boxes every month, particularly in the past 2 years or so. I even get the worst ones in my BoxyLuxe boxes. 😄

                    As for the new beauty box, I just happened to stumble onto it on You Tube from a Just Anne video. She was very impressed and she is a lot like you. She’s very objective and not afraid to address the negative and doesn’t over exaggerate the positive either. The more I looked into it the more I realized how many people were trying to join but were waitlisted. I signed up to be told when the August list would open up and it was full maybe an hour after the email went out so I got super lucky. Anyway, it’s literally called “The Box” by Fashionsta (not a misspelling). It’s only $20 and their first box was July I believe. That’s the one that created the hype at least. I don’t remember exactly how many products but I think they were all full size and from great brands. For Anne to be that impressed when her channel is dedicated to mostly beauty subs, that says something. Of course we all know that sometimes companies wow us with the first box or two and then it’s downhill from there. I’m just grateful and excited I get to be one of the few people that gets to find out though. They’re rolling it out like Ipsy as far as trying to expand each month rather than give the impression it’s available to everyone. I think that’s why I hadn’t heard of it before. They’re not aggressively promoting it since they have to turn so many people down, which I think is a good thing. You can get on the waitlist on the Fashionsta (NOT FashionISTA) site. And you can get more info on FB from the company and the subscribers.

                    I didn’t post the name because lately over half of my comments are not getting posted. Not just delayed, not posted at all. So I reviewed the policies on comments the other day trying to figure out what rule I was breaking. My best guess was something about making comments about one box on a post that was about a different box or something along those lines.

                    I’m sure it would be a good one to review if it turns out to be legit. Some people are skeptical because it seems too good to be true. Anne cracked me up when she pointed out that all their products actually came in boxes like they do when you buy them from a retailer like Sephora, unlock a certain sub that often sends products without them for some reason.

                    Sorry for the novella. Clearly I have a severe case of Friday night boredom.

                    • *very
                      *unlike

                      Apologies for these and any other typos or grammatical errors. 😊

                  • I’m box twins with Megan🤗 I received the serum because I requested it via their customer service. They told me the serum was only going to resubscibers which is prob why no one here has seen it in their box.

                    • Seriously??? I’m happy you got it but that is BS. I’ve been paying for my sub for almost 5 years. That serum was the most popular item that the highest number of people wanted. I’m super annoyed they sent it to people who they haven’t been profiting from lately over the rest of us. Again, nothing personal and happy you got it but yet another example of how much more Boxycharm values their new customers over the ones that made them what they are today. I guess the next time I really want something I will offer to resubscribe using my old email where they constantly ask me to come back IF they guarantee me that particular product.

                • The shadows were crap nothing but glittery mess and the shadows fade to nothing if u tried to blend them I got the bronzer and cotton candy ones

              30. I really think they only sent the serum to the influencers and that’s it! None of us got one, and it’s literally all that I wanted. Time to cancel as I keep getting crappy variations. It’s really not fair and seems like switch and bait to me – they always show us these great products yet only a few seem to get them.

                • Well I got this item and I am just a regular person

              31. Good to see SOMEONE got the serum, I’ve literally only seen like 5 people that got it. Sooo disappointing, I finally cancelled after years of never missing a box. Every month is just a new disappointment, I’ll resubscribe if they can ever figure out how to personalize. It’s just been a waste of money for me, I end up giving more than half the stuff away and that gets old.

                • I feel the same way. I was already trying to leave so receiving the worst version again this month with 2 lash products including yet another set of the dreaded falsies really felt like a sign. I’m waiting for more BoxyLuxe spoilers to decide if I want to cancel before or after next month. I’m committed to unsubscribing before October unless they suddenly start customizing or at least allowing us to choose one item.

                • I agree. They are always worth the money but then after a while it’s not exciting anymore. I feel like people that have never had this box before would love it but for long time people that have been with them, I feel like I’ve grown bored with it. And I still get excited over my $10 boxes

              32. You are the only person I have seen that revived the serum. Good for you!!! 😀
