The December Boxycharm subscription stands out to me mainly because I can smell it when I open the package. Happily it’s a delicious fragrance from a product I know I’ll enjoy. Boxycharm is a $21 subscription that comes monthly although you can stop anytime you want. I’ve been getting it since this summer and I’ve enjoyed this subscription a lot – it’s always loaded with full size items and worth a lot more than the $21 it costs me.
NelsonJ Argan Oil 7 Moisture Healing Mask ($23) is a brand I’ve tried but not in the coconut scent that is creating the delicious fragrance in my box. This hair mask is made of 100% Argan Oil and helps moisturize hair. What’s interesting about this is that it’s a PRE-WASH. Apply it for a minute for regular conditioning or wait 5 minutes for a deeper repair before you shampoo. The next step is to leave it in (don’t rinse) and then shampoo and condition hair as usual.
NCLA SO RICH CUTICLE OIL ($18) helps to revitalize and hydrate cuticles and nails. It contains Vitamin E extract paired with sunflower seed oil. The packaging is great with the dropper. Don’t take too much out though since for me one drop does the job although my cuticles behave normally.
TATCHA Aburatorigami Beauty Papers ($12) are wonderful for all skin types. I just get a little oily in my t-zone lately but I love using these luxury blotting papers to refresh my makeup. If you have oily skin they are even better! These are soft and whisper thin. They’re made of 100% natural abaca leaf and gold flake to absorb excess oil without disturbing your makeup.
Jelly Pong Pong All Over Glow ($15.95) is an oil free lightweight luminizing gel. I haven’t used it yet because I want to find out from others if it has a fragrance to it. It contains micronized pearlescent pigments and jasmine extract to highlight your face for a radiant complexion. (The black you see is from the crinkled paper in the box, it clings to shiny wrapping)
OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Americano ($19.90) I believe there were 3 shades sent out. When I saw the spoiler I knew that this would end up in a giveaway for two reasons. First Ofra lip products are more fragranced that I like but the main reason is that this brown red just isn’t my color. Therefore it’s not swatched or opened. What Ofra says about this Liquid Lipstick is that it’s non-feathering, creamy and soft in texture, and that it moisturizes lips.
BELLAPIERRE Waterproof Gel Lip Liner in Cinnamon ($17.99) is the perfect liner for the OFRA lipstick. These two were a great combination for Boxycharm this month. If you were these shades you’ll be in heaven. A gel liner (eyes or lips) is a great liner since they glide on. This too will be in a giveaway since they are like a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup and belong together.
The value of this month’s Boxycharm is $107. Even if I give away the two lip products I still have $69 worth I’ll love using. And a happy Beauty Info Zone winner. So it’s win win all around!
What do you think of this month’s subscription? Is it worth $21 to you? — Marcia
