Box Variation # 2

Total Value: About $160

BOXYCHARM this month is definitely a steal! One of the best items in the box is the highlighting stick because the formula is just so good. It gives the skin a natural-looking glow, making it look more radiant and bright. The mini curling wand is also amazing as it does a great job creating long-lasting curls. Its size is travel friendly as well. It’s a pretty good curation overall, with a high total retail value.

Ipsy Glambag Plus

 Five full size items from Ipsy


Total Value: About $149

This month’s box is really great! The summer-themed pouch is cute, although kinda small. Also, all the products are all amazing and useful! The standout item is the lactic acid treatment because it’s gentle on the skin and it does a great job of keeping it bright and smooth. The lippie was also a nice addition as it wasn’t only a liquid lipstick but it has lip care benefits as well.

Comes in a beautifully wrapped box which usually includes five deluxe-sized beauty products and wellness samples.


Total Value: About $97

If not for the palette, this would have been a nice Glossybox curation. The skincare items are pretty good though, especially the cleansing balm. It’s always great to receive products that work really well in keeping the skin clean and fresh, and the cleansing balm does just that. It even works on stubborn makeup!  Hopefully, they improve their future boxes and no more overpriced stuff!

This month, the winner is Ipsy Glambag Plus! Aside from the pretty Summer-themed pouch, all the products are really useful and amazing. BOXYCHARM takes the second spot, it’s another great curation too. It’s really a steal because the overall retail price is higher compared to the price of the box, and it’s really fantastic. GLOSSYBOX would have been another amazing curation if not for the palette, and we hope that the next boxes won’t have overpriced items. BeautyFix is jam-packed with face and skincare products, and they will be all useful when we can go out again. This is another intense competition between these boxes, and we are the real winners because we were able to try great products from each of our contenders!
