My thoughts on the November Boxy Charm box
Beauty boxes are a fantastic (non-commital and non-expensive) way to get your hands on the latest and greatest of the beauty world. These subscription boxes usually come once a month and (in the case of Boxy Charm at least) are carefully curated to fit your tastes. If you like getting new beauty products and love being at the forefront of the newest products on the market, Boxy Charm is something you will definitely love.
Here’s my breakdown on the November Box, read on to see if this looks like something that fits your beauty needs.
What to expect from your Boxy Charm box
So when you sign up for Boxy Charm, you fill out a profile and select your beauty preferences, I said I wanted a mix and makeup and skincare and that I wanted products suited for sensitive skin. You can take a look at their site and check out the profile quiz to get a taste of what your options are. As you can see here, I got a nice selection of both skincare and makeup products. There were two moisturizing serums featuring two very high-end brands, a liquid corrector, three liquid lipsticks and a sample size of Gimme Brow (one of my favorite brow products of all time).
Farsali Quench Serum
If you’re new to hyaluronic acid, then this product is the perfect way to introduce yourself to your new skincare must-have. Farsali definitely hit it out of the park with this luxe serum. It’s also packed with pro-vitamin b5 for added moisture and let me tell you; this serum feels heavenly.
111SKIN hyaluronic acid serum booster
Hyaluronic acid is a product that you want to use in conjunction with a moisturizer like a cream or a face lotion. Hyaluronic acid works by binding to water, increasing the amount of hydration on your skin, then you lockin that moisture with a heavier cream. If you want to walk up to the “Rolls Royce” of hyaluronic acid serums, 111SKIN’s Hyaluronic Acid Aqua Booster is where it’s at. If you want to splurge on the very best, get this serum. It’s absolutely divine. It feels a bit richer than your average hyaluronic acid and it looks incredible under makeup–trust me, your skin will never look so glowy as it does with this heavenly serum.
Half Caked Liquid Lip
This liquid like means serious business. If you want a lip stick that will not budge, fade or smear, this product is it. It’s coffee cup-proof (no tell-tale lipstick marks) and non-drying. In fact, it’s one of the most comfortable liquid lipsticks I’ve ever tried. One word of caution though, it’s not the easiest to apply, you’ll need a steady hand and concealer to sharpen the edges.
Benefit’s Gimme Brow
If you’re looking for the absolute easiest way to make your brows look fuller, more defined and more shapely, you need this product in your life. Those who have tried Gimme Brow know, this bad-boy is a staple. It’s one of the best and most loved brow products out there, and it’s results speak for themselves. There isn’t a person out there who can’t benefit from Gimme Brow. It fills and shapes and defines your brows in a natural-looking way that’s just beautiful. Once you try it, you’ll never go back. Trust.
Jecca Blac’s Liquid Corrector
This product may be my favorite of the entire Boxy Charm box. It’s a color-corrector for the under eyes that brightens as well as fixes any under-eye shadow. I could not believe the results, my under eyes transformed from having a heavy shadow that was multiple shades of discoloration (greys and reddish tones) and this product just made that vanish and also imparted this beautiful bright, awake and youthfulness on my under eye area. I’m absolutely sold.
