Surprise! The card opened up and listed some dates to keep in mind in case you need to do some holiday shopping.

I received six items in my box and some came in their original boxes.

Everything in my October 2021 BOXYCHARM Premium! There may be variations in the box – see the full spoilers here.

111SKIN Antioxidant Energising Essence ($100) The purpose of this essence is to provide antioxidants to the skin and prepare it for the rest of your skincare products.

Some of the ingredients are glycerin, kelp, aloe vera, horse chestnut, and something called NAC Y2, which is supposed to heal and protect skin.

There is a plug in the top that needs to be removed before you can pour it onto a cotton pad and swipe all over the face. Parfum is the last ingredient and this has a floral scent. It feels similar to toner and leaves a soft feeling/coating behind.

dew OF THE gods filla Collagen Under Eye Pads ($20) These undereye pads came in a metal container similar to a box of bandages! There was a code included to save on a future purchase from this brand.

Hmm, according to the back of this container, the pads were blessed by a Buddhist monk. Really? According to their website, yes, really.

There were 10 sets of patches inside the tin, with two in each pack.

The ingredients are hydrogel, glycerin, water, collagen (they say it is vegan and derived from plants), aloe, witch hazel, and vitamin C.

These are supposed to be worn for 30 minutes. They feel cool and firm, they don’t have any messy serum. They held fast under my eyes so I was able to walk around and do chores, and I could wear my glasses without getting anything on them since there’s a fabric backing that faces out. Did they do anything noticeable? No, I don’t think so, but they felt good.

Voir Haircare Soft Styling Foam ($22) It’s not often that I find mousse hair products in boxes so it’s a nice change from things that are supposed to make hair sleek, like oils.

There are a few ingredients I try to avoid on my seriously sensitive scalp, and cocamidopropyl betaine is one of them, along with fragrance, both found in this product. There’s also glycerin, bamboo extract, and mint extract. I decided to try it but not to rub it in, I just applied to the ends. The scent reminded me of green apple candies. It gave me some volume and left my hair soft and the product wasn’t hard to brush through and didn’t feel crunchy or weird.

tarte cosmetics Maneater™ Plumping Gloss ($19) I have very small lips so this was a fun product to try!

Here are the ingredients. Please don’t ask me to spell them or even pronounce them correctly.

The applicator is very puffy and the shade I received is called Buff. The first time I applied this to bare lips and as with other plumping lipsticks it burned and stung for a little while — the ingredients are meant to cause irritation and increased blood flow may temporarily plump up lips as the body works to fight the irritant. The second time I used this I applied lip liner first, since the product is more glossy than colorful, but I didn’t feel as much stinging. The third time (and fourth) I applied it to bare lips and barely noticed more than a cooling sensation and mild stinging. I didn’t get much plumping at any time. Otherwise, it was a traditional gloss in texture and shine. Swatched below.

Roen Beauty vowbrow Pencil ($18 for this shade on Amazon, other shades may cost more) I’m not that obsessed with my brows, I think I must have been lucky in that department because they are full enough and not bushy and all that’s needed is a plucking or waxing here and there. This product is designed so that you can apply hair-like strokes with its pencil tip.

Here’s the ingredients.

It has a very fine tip. I applied it and it really darkened my brows, and I can’t decide if it makes me look better or meaner, more severe. It was easy to apply though.

The other end has a spoolie brush so you can groom those brows before applying and then use it afterwards to blend it in. Swatched below.

benefit Cosmetics Georgia Golden Peach Blush ($30) benefit makes some of the best mascaras out there so I was excited to try this blush!

It is a shimmery peachy shade and is supposed to be buildable. It comes with a little applicator brush.

Here’s the ingredients. Sadly, I wasn’t won over by this product. It is supposed to smell like peaches but it doesn’t, and whatever this scent is, it persists for a while after application. I also didn’t like the color payoff, because there didn’t seem to be any color, and I have pale skin. It was shimmery, but it was hard to apply, the brush didn’t pick up much product. There weren’t many reviews of this on Sephora, but there were more 1-stars than 5-stars. Swatched below.

Swatched from top are the benefit blush which is actually more like highlighter, Roen brow pencil (which is hard to swatch on skin, it works better on brows), and tarte plumping lippie.

Wow, half of my BOXYCHARM Premium box was makeup this time around! I was happy to see a hair product that would work for my hair type, and it didn’t weigh my hair down. I liked the undereye patches, they didn’t irritate my skin and they weren’t messy to use. The peach blush wasn’t my favorite, but I liked the lip gloss and the brow pencil. A lot of the value from this box comes from the 111Skin essence, for a total of around $209 using the sale price of the brow pencil.

    What a sad blush. I have been noticing some blushes seem to be more in the highlight category. If I wanted that I would buy that! I want blushes.

      I agree Jody! I would have used it as a highlighter anyways but it just smells so weird.
