I don’t know why, but I still love getting beauty subscription boxes in the mail every month. There’s something about the element of surprise. Or maybe it’s like receiving a gift. I’m not good at receiving gifts from other because I think I’m more of a giver, so these boxes are sort of a gift to myself. I just opened my first beauty box for 202o and was pretty happy with the contents.
The lone box that I still subscribe to is BoxyCharm. The box is just $25 per month for full size products only. I think this program is worth the money that I pay. I usually love every single item in the monthly box. On a rare occasion I give items away because they’re not my favorite color or the shade or formula isn’t good for me.
The theme for the January Boxycharm is Breaking the Ice.
SKIN & CO ROMA TRUFFLE THERAPY FACE GOMMAGE – A delicate exfoliating cream, with a rich texture and soothing fragrance, Truffle Therapy Face Gommage is a lush formula combining the best of the iconic Mediterranean lifestyle and the luxury Italian spa experience. A beauty cabinet staple, the Truffle Therapy Face Gommage features Sweet Almond Oil, gentle Apricot Seed Powder, and our unique and exclusive Black Winter Truffle Extract, which has a high concentration of Superoxide Dismutase – a powerful free-radical scavenger that reduces the signs of aging. Gently buff away and erase dull, lackluster skin revealing a more luminous and healthy complexion. MSRP $28
PRETTY VULGAR UNDER COVER CONCEALER – a lightweight gel serum concealer formulated to be hydrating, buildable, and provide medium coverage with a natural, flawless finish. Infused with Vitamin E and Galactoarabinan to keep skin moisturized and to rejuvenate and improve the skin’s appearance. The angled doe foot applicator is easy to use and precisely applies the velvety soft formula to visibly brighten the complexion and cover dark circles. This blendable, long-wearing concealer is great for all skin types. MSRP $25
PETITE N PRETTY FULLY FEATHERED VOLUMIZING MASCARA – A volumizing mascara that adds instant thickness and definition. Its quick-dry formula locks in curl, while the custom petite-sized hourglass applicator is designed to lay it on thick and separate lash by lash for a full-feathered fringe. MSRP $16
GLOW RECIPE WATERMELON GLOW SLEEPING MASK – The Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask is a bouncy, breathable sleeping mask that smoothes and perfects skin overnight. This pillow-proof formula acts as a radiance-boosting face mask, formulated with soothing, amino-acid rich Watermelon Extract, hydrating Hyaluronic Acid, and pore refining AHAs that work while you sleep to gently exfoliate and clarify. MSRP $22
ACE BEAUTE EYESHADOW PALETTE – This eyeshadow palette features 12 colors that are reminiscent of the beautiful sunrises’ and sunsets witnessed in various locations around the world. Each color has been carefully milled and pressed to provide the easiest application and the most excellent color pay off. MSRP $34.99
Verdict: I’m obsessed with everything in the January Boxycharm. The skincare items that I received are both high quality with fantastic reputations. As far as the makeup, I love trying out new mascaras. The eyeshadow palette is a little bright for me on it’s own, however there are so many shades that I know I can/will use as part of my daily looks. The concealer sounds nice and is a good match for me as far as the shade.
The total value of the box is $125.99 and I paid just $25. Score!! You can go check out this box and many others over on the Boxycharm website. There’s a reason this is my favorite beauty subscription box.
