Boxycharm Review :: January, February, & March

I started getting Boxycharm in November of 2018. I mainly do unboxings and reviews on my Insta Stories, but I’ve decided to do quarterly check ins here. Boxycharm is a monthly subscription box that is $21. I’ve tried TONS of different subscription services and this is definitely my favorite.

  • Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Sheet Mask (2), $24
    • Cruelty free
    • Felt good on the skin
    • Left skin hydrated, soft, and dewy
    • Get the same results from Neutrogena Hydro Boost Sheet Masks and they are $3
    • Enjoyed using these, but I wouldn’t purchase on my own
  • Briogeo Rosarco Milk Leave-In-Conditioning Spray, $12
    • Cruelty free
    • Vegan
    • I love leave-in sprays like this because I only wash my hair once a week. I use regular conditioner sparingly because it can easily weigh my hair down.
    • There are similar, cheaper products that do the same thing
    • I use it and enjoy it, but I wouldn’t pay full price and purchase on my own.
  • Ofra Liquid Lipstick in Havana Nights, $20
    • Cruelty free
    • Vegan
    • I tried an Ofra liquid lip a long time ago and didn’t love it, but they revamped packaging and maybe the formula?
    • LOVE the color and formula
    • Would buy more shades on my own
  • Tarte Rainforest of Sea Volume III Palette, $36
    • Cruelty free
    • Vegan
    • LOVE
    • Perfect, natural palette for an every day look
  • Billion Dollar Brows Universal Brow Pencil, $18
    • Cruelty free
    • I have an IRL Boxy friend and we swap products from our boxes. She wanted this and I didn’t have any interest in trying this, so I sent it to her.
    • Love that it had a spoolie though!

Total Value– $110

  • Cover Fx Perfector Face Palette in Light/Medium, $45
    • Cruelty free
    • Vegan
    • Cover Fx is a high end, pricey brand so I’m always glad to see a Cover Fx product in the box
    • Talc-free formula
    • Not all shades work for me in their suggested use capacity, i.e. the highlighter is too dark, but I use it as a blush topper over a matte blush, but I’ve found ways to make all the colors work for me.
    • Pigmented, easy to blend
    • Love the simplicity of everything in one palette
    • I would not have paid $45 for this on my own, but I’m glad I have it.
  • Wander Beauty Lift Off Purifying & Brightening Peel Off Mask, $34
    • Cruelty free
    • Vegan
    • I’m saving this for a giveaway!
  • Moda Brushes Powder & Soft Glow Kit, $29.99
    • Cruelty free
    • Vegan
    • Fluffy powder brush is great, but there are cheaper options that are just as good
    • Glow brush is flimsy AF and I see no use for it. I trashed it
  • Ofra Liquid Lipstick in Monaco, $20
    • Cruelty free
    • Vegan
    • Like I said above, I love the formula, but this color is a NOPE
    • Giving to my friend
  • Appeal Cosmetics Liquid Eye Shadow in Gold, $21
    • Cruelty free status is unknown
    • Super pigmented and foiled/metallic
    • Have a similar product/shade so this is going to my friend!

Total Value–$149.99


I’ve gotten $380.99 worth of products for $63. Not a bad deal!

This box wasn’t a complete bust and for $7, I can’t really complain. You know what you’re getting when you buy the box and I knew I wouldn’t use some of the products. The St. Ives Cleansing Stick and Soap & Glory Scrub are the stand out products and make the box worth it.

Target releases these boxes on the first Monday of every month and they usually sell out quickly. I haven’t bought one in a while, but if they continue to be this good, I may become a repeat buyer.

May 2018 Sonia Kashuk Beauty Box

I need another makeup brush like I need a hole in the head, but when I saw this was only $10, I couldn’t help myself.

This is a box you subscribe to and receive every month. You have to go to target.com each month and purchase it. They usually release on the first Monday of each month and they sell out quickly so you have to be ready!

This box was $10 and has a $42 value!

–Synthetic bristles

–Very soft

Quick Dry Brush Cleansing Wipes (3)
–$9 for 10 wipes
–I was very skeptical as to whether or not these would work, but I was pleasantly surprised.
–Perfect for travel and/or makeup artists

Professional Angled Eye Shadow Brush
–$13
–Synthetic bristles
–Great for blending or packing color on the lid

Slant Tip Tweezers
–$10
–Love the gold color
–I don’t tease my brows so I can’t speak to how good they are for that, but I’ve used them for other things and they work just fine.

 

I love that it came with a card that listed all the products and a little description about each one. I liked that coupon too!

 

I tried out the brush wipe with my blush brush that hadn’t been washed in a minute. After using the wipe, it came pretty clean. These wipes are no substitute for actual washing, but they’re great in a pinch or on the go.

I hope this box is a regular monthly thing because I’m loving it!
