June Boxycharm

Hey everyone! So today’s post is going to be an unboxing basically, of my June boxycharm. So for those of you who do not know, Boxycharm is a $21 monthly beauty subscription box. This is my first box from them and I believe every box comes with 5-6 full size products, this box came with 5. So I just opened my box and these are my initial thoughts on all the products. Let’s jump on in.

So the first thing I noticed in the box, which I knew this product would be included is, a 3 pack of Farmacy sheet masks. They are the Brightening Hydrating Coconut Gel Masks. I know this brand is sold at Sephora but the box of these masks say that these are exclusively for Boxycharm, and I love hydrating sheet masks so I am really excited to try these. It also says that these are naturally derived ingredients, paraben free, free of formaldehyde and artificial coloring, and no animal testing. It says that it helps to even skin tone, overall clarity, and also hydration of course. It says that this retails for $24.

The next product I pulled out of the box was the Cougar Beauty Mineral Face & Body Shimmer. This is a mineral powder basically to add wherever you may want to glow and have some sparkle. It is in the shade “Diamond Kiss”. This product is also from the UK I believe. At least that is where the packaging says it is manufactured. I am also very excited to try this product because I am going to Las Vegas next week and I think this will be great for going to the pool, or out to at night when I want that extra glow and sparkle. It is also a subtle sparkle, it is definitely there but to me it doesn’t look like cheap tacky glitter. This retails for $16.

The next product is the Girlactik Beauty Precise Eyeliner Marker. So as soon as I opened the box I swatched this liner and 30 seconds later I rubbed it with a napkin….nothing. It did not smudge at all, a little tiny bit went onto the napkin but the swatch itself still looked flawless and not touched at all. It seems to also be very lightweight and it says it is long lasting, which being smudge proof I am sure it is long lasting. I am not the best at winged liner but this point is so precise I feel like it will even be easy for me to use. I am very excited to try this out. It retails for $20.

The next product, and the product I am least excited about is a LVX Nail Polish. It says that this is a long lasting, chip resistant polish with a gel-like formula. It is also vegan friendly, which is a plus. I am honestly just not really a nail polish person, I occasionally get acrylics done at the nail shop, but I rarely paint my own nails. One thing that bothers me is the packaging, there is a square cap on top that you remove to get to the actual lid and brush. This top does nothing, it doesn’t even stay on. It is pointless and I feel like maybe mine is broken because I don’t understand why it just keeps falling off. Also I do think you will need about 2-3 coats of this polish to really not have any of your natural nail show. This is the shade “Serene” and it retails for $18.

The final product in the box is the Ofra Oil Control Pressed Powder. I do love Ofra Cosmetics but I am not too excited about this product because my skin is rarely ever oily. I typically have very dry skin, with my t-zone rarely getting oily. It is a pretty big pan though, and it also seems like it will be good to use to set my concealer. It is also the most expensive product in the box and retails at $39.95.

So as far as just unboxing the box so far I am very impressed with this subscription. I will actually use all of these products, and the first three I would actually purchase if I had seen them in a store somewhere. The total retail price of the box is about $118 and for only spending $21, I think I definitely got my money worth. Thanks for reading everyone!
