Boxy Charm - December

Boxy Charm time!

Boxy Charm is $21.00 a month with shipping included 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.

The theme this month is “Pop Fizz Clink” which makes sense with the New Year.  The card included mention’s reveling in the “charm of an era or decadence and glamour” and looking back to a time when “Jazz, boas, glitter and pearls hit it big.”  Fun!

Here is the December Boxy Charm!

1)  Tatcha Petal Fresh Original Aburatorigami  – 30 sheets (FULL SIZE)
Ok the name sounds really fancy….but these are just oil absorbing sheets. I’m not too impressed, even if they are made from “100% natural abaca leaf and gold flake.”  Did you know a CLEAN toilet seat cover will do the same exact thing?!?  Beauty trick hehe.
Full Size: $12.00 My Value: $12.00

2)  Jelly Pong Pong All Over Glow - .68 oz (FULL SIZE)
First of all, I just can’t get over this name. I can’t take the brand seriously!! That being said, I unfortunately have too many luminizers from brands I respect more, so I doubt this will be getting much use.  The one thing I do appreciate about it though it that the tube is quite large.  It will last a LONG time!
Full Size: $15.95 My Value: $15.95

3)   NCLA So Rich Cuticle Oil – .5 oz.  (FULL SIZE)
I appreciate that this is different from the usual nail polish, but I’m not sure it is something I would ever use. Since I am not a nail polish user and don’t ever need to use lotion, my cuticles have no issues. Plus, you are supposed to apply two times a day. Who has time for that?
Full Size: $18.00 My Value: $18.00

4)   Nelson J Argan Oil Moisture Healing Mask – 3.4 oz. (FULL SIZE)
I like the smell of this, it smells like coconuts. Yum.  I think I would normally get use out of a product like this, but I don’t like the fact that you need to towel dry your hair first before application, then let it sit, rinse and then you have to towel dry again. I prefer one I can use completely while in the shower!
Full Size: $23.00 My Value: $23.00

5)   Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in “Mocha” – .27 oz. (FULL SIZE)
For some reason I am not a fan of Ofra products and I unfortunately receive them often in beauty boxes.  The particular lip product is too drying for me and the color is too orangy.  Bummer.
Full Size: $19.90 My Value: $19.90

6)   Bellepierre Waterproof Gel Lip Liner in “Cinnamon” – .06 oz. (FULL SIZE)
As this matches the lipstick about, which is a color I don’t care for, I won’t be getting any use out of this either.  I do like that it is a “gel” liner though.  I really like gel eyeliners, so I assume the gel lip liner would be great as well!
Full Size: $17.99 My Value: $17.99

Final Cost: $21.00
Final Value: $106.84

I am feeling pretty indifferent about this month’s Boxy Charm. While overall, the products look great, they just aren’t really for me.  I think I will only be using the oil absorbing sheets and maybe the hair mask.  I am pretty bummed the lip products aren’t my color, otherwise I’d be using them too!
