It's that time of the month again. BoxyCharm time!! I want to share with you my February BoxyCharm. If you are not familiar with BoxyCharm, it is a monthly beauty subscription where you get 4 to 5 FULL sized products for $21 a month. They have a couple different subscription plans to choose from. The plans are as follows:
* 1 Month - $21
* 3 Months- $59 ($19.66/box)
* 6 Months- $116 ($19.33/box)
*12 Months- $231 ($19.25/box)
** A 12 month subscription is like getting a box for free **
BoxyCharm also offers BoxyLuxe every 3 months- March, June, September and December. There is $250 in value in each box. There are limited quantities of this box. How it works is you sign up for a BoxyCharm, then you are given the option to upgrade to BoxyLuxe for an additional $28.99 every 3 months. The BoxyLuxe will take the place of your BoxyCharm in March, June, September, and December. On all the other months you will receive the regular BoxyCharm. There is an additional $3 charge for shipping outside the contiguous U.S.
Each month after receiving your box you can log into you account and review the products you received to earn charms.These charms can be redeemed for products in the charm room.
Now that I have explained BoxyCharm, lets get into what I got!
This month they offered 11 different products, some with color variations. In my box I received:
- Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara
- Pretty Vulgar- Shimmering Swan Highlighter
- touch in SOL- No Poreblem Primer
- Pharmacy-Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser
- Trestique- Prime & GlazeLip Crayon in English Rose
First things first, I love me some Too Faced! This mascara is one of my favorites. It is designed to separate, curl and coat your lashes. No need for an eyelash curler with this mascara. This mascara retails for $24.
Secondly, the Pretty Vulgar Highlighter in Shimmering Swan is such a beautiful champagne color. It goes on smoothly and is not chalky at all. I really like this highlighter. It retails for $32.
Next I received the touch in SOL No Poreblem primer. I have to say I am most excited about this product. it has quickly become my go to face primer. I press this into my cheeks, around my nose and a little on my forehead so my foundation goes on smoothly. It is not greasy, it doesn't ball up on me and an added bonus is it smells really good! This primer retails for $18. At that price, I can get 2 of these for the price of one of the Smashbox Primers and it is just as good, if not better.
This next product is not one that I am excited about. The Farmacy cleanser has an off putting smell to me and to be honest I doubt that I will ever use it. It may be a great product, but the smell makes me not want to test it for myself. I will be passing on this product to a friend or family member. This cleanser retails for $22.
Lastly, is the Trestique Prime and Glaze Lip Crayon in English Rose. I have tried other Trestique products that I have gotten in other boxes and I do like their brand, so I was excited to try this out. It is a 2 in 1 lip duo. One end is a primer and the other is the lip color. I love the color, not a nude but not too bold. It glides on like butter, and sits well on the lips. It retails for the $25.
All in all I am very happy with this box. It has a great value and I'll use 4 out of the 5 products. Leave me a comment below if you receive BoxyCharm and tell me what you got, or if you decided to sign up.
