What do you think of the spoilers?

FYI – BoxyCharm boxes have many variations so it is not guaranteed you’ll receive the items from the spoilers. 

If you haven’t signed up for this box yet, the regular Boxycharm box is $25 a month. BoxyLuxe is a once-a-quarter upgrade option you can add to your existing $25-a-month Boxycharm subscription. So for an additional $28.99, you’ll get the Luxe items, and be paying a total of $53.99 for that quarterly box. 

Check out my reviews of Boxycharm boxes, our posts of Boxycharm Spoilers to learn more.

BoxyCharm ($25 per month) is one of the most popular beauty subscription boxes that we review, with lots of loyal customers.

Dawn

I did not get an email to make a choice. I usually do. Does anyone know how I can go about making a choice?

Angie

If we are on the waitlist, do we get to choose?

gabyh

I wish I can see sneak peeks of the base box

Alice R

I cut the cord. Cancelled Luxe. Going to use that money for things I truly need and want. So happy I made this decision.

Jean

I’m close to this point. I’m mostly a skincare nut and I love trying new products but I signed up for Boxy to build up my nearly non-existent makeup collection. I’ve gotten several things I like and use but I almost always reach for neutrals (no makeup makeup look) so I just don’t use a lot of the palettes I receive. After the December Luxe I’m out for a while, I think.

Alice R

Jean, I’m just like you, I subscribed to build makeup, and I’m mostly into skincare. Also a neutral, natural color gal! I’m already looking at some new skincare I want to try. There are so many sales popping up everywhere, well find some great discounts on new discoveries!

Julie B

I’m on the waitlist for BoxyLuxe and got an email just today saying I could make my choice. I was glad since I thought they would not give us the option until they took us off the waitlist, whenever that will be. Excited to try the Saturday Skin and line corrector.

Andrea Krajci

If we get the choice email does that mean we are getting December’s boy luxe??

Christina

I love this box in general and am a huge product junkie, but I have to draw the line at lip wrinkles. Aren’t lips supposed to have wrinkles? Anyone with me on this?

But, I am super excited for the Elemis and the adorable storybook.

Sunny

I don’t think it’s for your actual lips. It’s for the fine vertical lines around your lips, which can be very pronounced if you smoke or use straws a lot.

Chelsea

Saturday skin moisturizes get really good reviews on Sephora so I picked that and the lip line corrector. I’ve never used anything from QMS before so I’m excited to check it out.

Dot

Picked same as you Chelsea love Saturday skin products and yes, can’t wait to try something from QMS 👍🥰

Jaimee Nelson

Hi everyone. I am wondering about the totals of our boxyluxe boxes and if choosing the 2 most expensive products are going to leave us getting the bad boxes. Because calculating the cost of the storybook shadow the elemis and the qms that is already over $300. So how much more are they going to put in the box? Is it all going to be $5 items like that awful lip liner from october? Or will we be getting 6 quality items? I was really hesitant to choose both high priced items thinking this is setting me up for failure. Will we receive 6 super awesome mystery products if we choose the water cream and roller? Or stay safe and choose only 1 expensive item and choose 1 less expensive item and have a balanced box? What do you all think?

Angela

Did everyone receive an email saying congratulations and confirming your choices! My daughters got one but I did not ! Did anyone else not get a confirmation email about your boxyluxe choices? I have two accounts and I checked both and no email!

June

I haven’t received one either. I emailed their customer service today to see if they could confirm my chouces, but no word back yet.

RubyWooWhoo

Don’t know if it matters. Boxy seems completely unconcerned with making sure the box variations are of anywhere near equal value, lol. I am curious to see what the “water bottle” variation will be for December though given the insanely inflated value of the QMS product.

Alice R

Indeed. Waiting for the shoe to drop! And, it will.

laci

p.s. i chose the 2 most expensive so i guess i’m going to find out for sure!

laci

the head guy has answered this question before, & at that time, he said that your choices do not affect the rest of the box. i still wonder all of the same things You do tho. his answer didn’t completely ease my mind from them. but i just choose exactly what i would prefer anyway.

Jean

I chose the Saturday Skin and the lip serum so I didn’t choose the two most expensive products but I wouldn’t be worried about this personally. Others may disagree but BoxyLuxe seems far less prone to the weird variations we see in the regular box. Every Luxe box I’ve received has had high quality products and the variations I’ve seen haven’t been too out of hand/inconsistent. I think Boxy does a great job with Luxe.

Jill M

I love Elemis and it’s gonna get colder so I use more oils, so that was choice number one. Choice number two was the QMS lip line corrector. I have nothing in my collection that even resembles that, so I’m gonna give it a go. That’s what these subs are all about anyways right? I’m so happy with my choices and I can’t wait to find out in a couple of days if I’m getting off the premium waitlist! 🤷‍♀️

Angela

If we are in the premium waitlist on the same account we get boxyluxe will that work? I’m confused about how that works if we were supposed to get on the waitlist under the same account we upgraded to Boxyluxe under or if we were supposed to open another account and get on premium waitlist there so we receive boxycharm and boxycharm premium both! What confuses me is that they said Boxyluxe is an upgrade which I knew but they also said boxycharm premium is a separate subscription not an upgrade!!

Monica

They said that if you are removed from the waitlist for Premium that you will be given the choice of adding it as a second subscription or replacing your regular boxycharm box.

Shadie

Thank goodness for MSA! I would have never known about the time frame for choice for BoxyLuxe!! You guys are life savers!! I choose the Saturday Skin Waterfall Glacier Water Cream and facial rollers. I’m pretty excited about this BoxyLuxe. I’m so glad I paused Ispy for this!!

Dani G.

Amen! Thank you MSA. I wouldn’t have had any idea because I very rarely look at social media. I don’t understand why they can’t just email us. And I mean ALL of us. I still haven’t received my foundation color email and I finally got a response about it almost a week later where once again, the response was not at all helpful. “Check your spam” is useless. Who doesn’t know to try that at this point? That’s definitely not it.

I don’t know of any other company that has to send customers valuable information in batches, over a week’s time and even then some people don’t get it. So what’s going to happen if they send us foundation or something similar in the future? Are they just going to send me a random shade? For that matter why not just do ALL of these things on their website? Add another “quiz” for the foundation match. Post a calendar for the customization and add-on dates.

I love the amazing deals Boxy offers but they make everything so complicated and confusing. I almost feel like we earn those bargains with how hard we have to work to keep up with their announcements, sign-ups to sign up, etc. etc. Honestly if it wasn’t for MSA I wouldn’t bother doing business with them.

Dot

Boxy emailed me twice

h

Thank you so very much, MSA for your post. If you had not posted this, I never would have known. I am two hours late as it is. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I have the actual Nurse Jamie roller and never use it. I don’t know why, but I don’t use my jade rollers, micro needlers, jade gua sha tools, Clairsonic, laser light, or Foreo, but at the time I just know I must have those. Wish I could report if the Nurse Jamie roller that I have makes a difference or not, but I haven’t been consistent enough. Anyone use theirs regularly?

Jean

I don’t have a Nurse Jamie but I do have a jade roller, which I’ve used sporadically. I have seen some video tutorials using rollers and the results are pretty noticeable. I saw an aesthetician roller her 50-something mother and the improvement in Mom’s expression lines was kind of jaw dropping. I was hoping to use mine to relax my tight jaw but I just haven’t made it a regular thing. And get on that Clarisonic, woman! I’ve been using one twice daily for at least 15 years and really could not imagine life without it. I regularly get complimented on my “gorgeous” skin, which makes me feel pretty great at 47.

Dot

Regarding Clarisonic there’s so many different brands ie .. made by vanity planet so forth

Anyone have one they can recommend brand wise ? Sorry new to Clarisonic things I have something like that , but so scared it be harsh on my sensitive skin, I don’t want to have red, irritated skin , but any help or suggestion be much appreciated – thanks 🥰

GMForever

I love both Saturday Skin and Elemis products. I wish we could get both in the same box. maybe I need sign up for a second box. It’s just a lot to spend with Boxyluxe + Ultimate , not talking about other subs. Sigh…

Misty Chavez

Watch for the add ons. You should be able to the one you didn’t choose then.

Debbie

I love face oils as I have extremely dry skin but the Rose is a no go on face products for me. Too strong of a smell on my face so I went with the Saturday skin and qms

Dani G.

I’m so confused. I didn’t receive an email so I assumed even though I’ve been on the waitlist for two months, I didn’t make the cut.
However, I went to my account to check and immediately there was a button to choose my products for Luxe. Yet there is NOTHING but a blank screen under the “Make a selection” instructions. No pictures of items, not even grated out items. Just a white screen I can scroll down on but don’t see a thing.

So does anyone know why this is? Am I not actually off the list or is there some technical issue? Lord knows I won’t get a response from Boxycharm for at least two weeks if I message them. I’m going to be really upset if I get charged $50 and got no say in my products. Any help/info/advice would be MUCH appreciated. Thanks!

Cathleen

I had the same problem on my laptop, but had no issues on my phone.

Jacki

Try logging out and back in. This worked for me. Also try a different browser or device.

Chelsea

Thank you! Logging out and back in for me worked!

Dani G.

Thanks, Jacki! I used Chrome instead of Safari and it worked. Phew! So glad I was able to choose my products and thankful they were still available.

Steph H.

I chose Saturday Skin and QMS. Both are brands that I’ve never tried before. So happy that we were able to choose between the Saturday Skin and Elemis. I love Elemis products but I do not like oils.

Elizabeth

I chose the same! I don’t have anything for lip lines, I end up using an eye cream each night on my lips. And I love Saturday skin, they featured it in their limited edition skincare box earlier this year. So far Elemis is fine, but they tend to have a lot of fragrance in their products, which I would rather not use on my face.

Sharon S Hi

Too much fragrance is the reason I also do not like Elemis. I like the formulation of the Elemis products that I have tried, there are too many other great products with less or no fragrance. While I *like* the smell of (some) fragrances, I prefer to avoid them in my skincare and makeup.

Debbie

I am crazy about Bite lip mask in the pot for evenings. Can’t live without it.

Jacki

Same. I love having choices!

Lena

I haven’t noticed much results from the past Elemis products we’ve received so I decided to try the Saturday Skin moisturizer since I’ve never use that brand before. Plus, I have lots of oils already to go through. It’s really nice getting a choice, though, I know

Laura C

Elemis and QMS!

Dani G.

Same here. I am really starting to battle with aging skin. The Elemis sounded like it was more focused on that plus I think I may already have a travel size of the Saturday Skin. It’s terrible to have so many products in your stash that you can’t keep track of what you already have. I should be ashamed but oh well. I would love to try that roller but I have more faith that I’ll use the cream every night. I do wish we could add it on though.

Dot

Me too 👍🤞

h

Me, three. Researched the ingredients of all of the variants, thinking those might be options to customize, so that made it quick and easy. I have zero experience with QMS and have never heard anything about it. I happen to like how Elemis products react with my skin, so even though I don’t need a 75th bottle of facial oil, I went for the Elemis.

Sharon

I selected the Saturday Skin and QMS. Oddly, I just happened to be on the Boxycharm site when the choices were released, which is lucky because I did not receive an email. I have missed the opportunity to choose before, so I was looking for an email all morning. I didn’t receive one, so I went to look on the site…still nothing. An hour or so later when I looked again, the screen popped up.

Just curious… Did any of you receive an email, or did you just keep checking the site?

Elizabeth

I did not receive an email. One of my favorite vloggers posted last night so I just kept checking back throughout the day.

MzBev

Boxy responded to someone on their FB page that they were NOT sending out an email to anyone about it. They said they posted it on IG and another social media platform. I guess they expect people to be glued to their phones or computers all day, following them everywhere to know anything.

GMForever

I did not receive any email today nor last month or any time before for the choices. I have the same question than you.

Zo

I did not receive an email. Thankfully MSA posted it so I was able to choose what I wanted.

Sunny

Last month, we did choice and add-ons the same day. This month, it was just the choice. So…has anyone heard anything about when add-ons would be available?

MzKayleeJames

This is for the December box so it won’t be the same time. I got an email last week with some spoilers and I think the add on window is November 12.

Jamey

I thought November 12th was the pop up sale

Steph

There were add-ons available after the choice selection for the base box at the beginning of the month. I don’t think they’ll be doing add-ons when we have choice selection for Boxyluxe though.

Emma

I love Saturday Skin, they make great skincare so that was an easy choice for me. Picked the face roller thingy just for kicks

Tj

I went with elemis….I’ve tried both brands… i honestly never notice a difference with any of it lol I chose Elemis because the reviews on saturday skin wasnt great plus I like putting oil into my moisturizers. I really like Boxy giving us choices! I cancelled all my subs and only have boxy now!

Jacki

Saturday skin and QMS for me!

GMForever

I have a question could someone please confirm: is it normal I don’t receive any email from Boxy to inform me about the choices? This is the second time, I just randomly check MSA and see it on time? The last choice, I just never received any email before or after the choice selection window.
This is bothering me a lot as it doesn’t seem fair at all. If I didn’t check MSA, I wouldn’t have been able to choose.

Jamey

Yes it’s normal. I’ve been with boxy for 6 years and NEVER get emails from them. I go through the gigs and check spam, promotion, etc and it’s never anywhere…only get tracking from Fed ex about box tracking, and I only learn about things through MSA and Elizabeth Wolfe in youtube to find out about oop up sales and stuff

Jen

I love Elizabeth Wolfe’s channel!! She is so real.
Elemis and lip line serum for me. Hope there is hair tools, I need a new hair straightener.

LaylaB

Same here, I didn’t get the email. Last month I didn’t get one saying choice was open, but I did get one confirming my choices.

I just happened to check their website and saw choice was open. It’s really annoying.

Sharon

Yes! This keeps happening to me too. I am very thankful to MSA! You guys ROCK!

Your Friends @MSA

Happy to help, Sharon!

GMForever

So do other people actually receive an email alert for the choices? Please let me know so I could contact Boxy and see if they could fix this for me. I don’t like the idea of having to have to check MSA for choice option time (although I too am very grateful to MSA).
Since there doesn’t seem to have any fixed date for the choices? Like for Ipsy, I know it’s the 2nd of the month. For Boxy, it’s all over the place, right?

Sunny

I received an email on 10/24 saying that the choice would be today. The subject line was “BREAKING NEWS: The MOST mysterious spoiler yet!”

No email today when it started. I didn’t know what time, so I just kept checking back.

GMForever

Ok. Thank you. I did get that email and just overlooked the part where it says to check back today for choices. I wish they would send an email on the day the choices are opened so we would not miss it.

Christina

Very happy I got to choose the Elemis! Not excited about either of the other two but the Elemis and cute eyeshadows more than make up for it.

mistyleonberger

Elemis and QMS for me. If this box keeps on looking this good I might have to get a 2nd subscription 😂😂

Michelle

Chose the Elemis and QMS!

CT

I chose Elemis and the lip line corrector. At first I chose the facial roller but that’s a lot lower value.

Casey

I went with the Saturday skin and the roller. No real preference for either. Very unexciting choice.
