Boxy Charm Review - May

Boxy Charm time!

This box is $21.00 a month with free shipping and is a “beauty box subscription that surprises you each month with the best beauty products from popular and chic brands. Each box contains full size and luxury size beauty samples from preferred well-known brands.” They aim to cover a whole look from makeup to nails, which I really like. 

Well, I figured out why they haven’t been doing their super cute packaging lately. It’s because they were working on changing their packaging completely!  Apparently this one is more cost effective, but its still not as cute as the old style.  The white box is definitely nicer than the black box though!
This month’s theme was “Mothers Day” and has a very pink feel to it!

So here it is….the May Boxy Charm!  

c        1)      Illume Lavish Hand Creme – 3.5 oz. (FULL SIZE)
           I have to admit, I am not much of a lotion person.  I never have been. Therefore, I would 
           never ever pay this much for a hand cream.  It smells ok, but it is a pretty song flowery scent.   
           I will be keeping this by my bed for those just in case nights I suppose.
Full Size: $20.00My Value: $20.00

           2)      Mirabella Pretty & Provacative Lip Color in “Fever”– .12 oz.  (FULL SIZE)
Wow, this is truly a terrible color.  That’s really all I have to say about this.  You know me and my hatred for red lipsticks!
Full Size: $22.00 My Value: $22.00

3)   Lauren B. Beauty Nail Polish Remover Pads – 15 pads (FULL SIZE)
Ooo I like this!  I wish there were more pads in it, but it will be great for travel.  That is a ridiculous price though.  $1.00 per pad???  I can get an entire bottle of polish remover that will last me months for the same price!
Full Size: $15.00 My Value: $15.00

4)  Ferro Cosmetics Pink Fabuki Brush – (FULL SIZE)
Honestly, I don’t get the appeal of this.  Is it because it is pink?  I mean, doesn’t everybody and their mother who ever puts makeup on their face have something like this already?  Maybe I’m wrong, but I don’t think I will get much use out of this!
Full Size: $20.00 My Value: $20.00

5)  Embelleze Novex Olive Oil & Argan Oil Conditioners – 30 g. each
I guess these are ok.  I used one the other day, but I honestly didn’t see much difference in my hair.  They are pretty difficult to use too, since the product needs to stay on for 25 minutes and needs to be covered.  I sat in my living room with a grocery bag on my head the whole time!
Full Size: $7.99 for 300 g. My Value: $1.50

Final Cost: $21.00
Final Value: $78.50

I am starting to notice a trend with this box. Though it always seems like a great value, the prices of each individual item seem ridiculously high.  I wouldn’t pay full price for any of these items.

I am not giving up on this box just yet though.  The items have mostly been useful, just expensive!  I have hopes this will get better!

  1. Have you ever tried Birchbox or any of the other subscription boxes? I really want to order one for when I start school in a few months to have a nice treat every month, but I haven't decided on which one to get. What do you think of the others compared to this?

  2. Those subscriptions can be so hit or miss! Currently I only have ipsy. I almost always love it every month!
