BOXYCHARM Premium is a new beauty box offering from BOXYCHARM, joining regular BOXYCHARM and BOXYLUXE. For $35 per month, it sends 6-7 items with 1 item chosen by the subscriber. They also promise $175+ value in every box and no product overlaps. When you sign up for Premium, you must get the base/classic box for the month you signed up for and stay subscribed to that until you’re off the waitlist for Premium. After you score Premium, you can let go of the base box if you choose.
The box exterior is black, and the inner is blue.
Some of the items arrived in their original packaging.
The February 2020 theme is Adore!
There’s an ad about BOXYPOPUP, where you can shop beauty and lifestyle deals.
The information card lists all the products in the box, together with a brief description.
Everything in my February 2020 BOXYCHARM Premium! There may be variations in the box – see the full spoilers here.
Karity Picante Palette ($29) This is a choice item. Subscribers can choose between this or the Sutra Beauty Ceramic Flat Iron. I chose the full-sized palette because I’m in love with its colors!
The back of the packaging lists all the colors, as well as the ingredients used in this palette. It’s paraben-free and cruelty-free.
The colors remind me of a warm summer, from bright shades of yellows and oranges to the vibrant red hues. They threw in some neutrals as well to balance out the palette. There’s a good mix of matte shades and glittery shades, so I really couldn’t ask for more. With 21 shades, mixing and matching for various occasions is a breeze.
It’s one of the best palettes I’ve seen recently! Aside from the great choice of colors, I also like their blendable formula with zero to minimal fallout. They seriously blend like a dream!
Hourglass Cosmetics Ambient Lighting Blush ($40) All Premium box subscribers will receive this item. This blush is a work of art, definitely different from the usual blushes. It doesn’t just add a flush of color on the cheeks, it also gives your skin a nice, glowing effect because it contains Ambient Lighting Powder.
I got it in Diffused Heat, described as a “vibrant poppy blush” with a shimmery finish.
Look at that beautiful swirl of color! The compact packaging also includes a mirror so you can touch up effortlessly.
You can apply this just like how you apply your regular blushes. Just use a brush to pick up the product and then apply on your cheeks and then blend upward. I like how lightweight it is! It stays on all day and doesn’t make me greasy either.
Korres Bergamot Pear Body Butter ($31) Now, it’s time to give our skin some love! Packed with shea butter and a blend of healthy nourishing oils, this body butter helps keep your skin moisturized, especially for sensitive areas like your elbows, heels, and knees. Other subscribers might receive this in another scent/variant.
I got it in Bergamot-Pear which smells so good with just the right balance of fruity and floral notes. It’s ideally applied after bath time to help lock in moisture and keep your skin soft and supple all day long. It has made my skin feel hydrated minus the icky feeling so it’s a win for me!
GLOW Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist ($28) All Premium box subscribers will get this item. It’s a soothing mist made with watermelon, hibiscus flower AHAs, apple cider vinegar, and hyaluronic acid. You can spritz it on your face any time it needs to be refreshed or before applying makeup to help create a smooth makeup base. It’s a must-have for anyone who constantly suffers from dry and flaky skin. I love the juicy scent as well!
Tarte Cosmetics Base Tape Hydrating Primer ($30) All Premium box subscribers will receive this item. This gem is a light-as-air primer that keeps makeup in place without stripping off moisture from the skin, therefore making you look fresh all day long. It’s packed with hydrating ingredients such as jojoba and grapeseed extracts. Its scent reminds me of a tropical summer! Plus points because it’s vegan and cruelty-free!
Faccia – 24K Gold Foil Moisturizing Cream ($100) All Premium box subscribers will receive this item. First off, this moisturizing cream is listed with a retail price of $100. It’s way too expensive for a moisturizing cream, and it’s also quite hard to justify the price, as the brand is new and the claims are not backed by evidence. For an instance, the brand uses a cruelty-free logo yet they’re not on the list of PETA’s cruelty-free companies.
The moisturizer has “gold” streaks in it. I’m not sure if it actually works but so far, I think the formula is pretty lightweight and the packaging is really pretty.
I liked the majority of the items from the January BOXYCHARM Premium. Even without the overpriced moisturizer, the retail value of the items is already $158, which is not bad especially since it includes useful items such as the body butter and facial mist, plus a lovely full-sized palette with an excellent formula. I also like the primer because it works on my skin type. It’s not drying and it helps my makeup stay on all day long. As for the blush, I liked its pigment because it’s not too strong. It just leaves my cheeks with a nice, subtle glow and a healthy flush of color. The next Premium box is really exciting, as it’s a collab with Fenty Beauty!
