August Boxycharm Unboxing & Review*

I was really excited to receive my Boxycharm Box so early this month!  Especially after I saw "sneak peaks" of what I was getting on their Instagram account!

Boxycharm is a monthly beauty subscription service that features makeup, skincare, and hair products.  Each box typically contains 5 full size high end beauty products.

The theme for this month's box is Gorgeous Globetrotter.

Nios Shield Leave-In Conditioner - $26
This leave-in conditioner contains argan oil and SPF which will protect your scalp.  That said, I try not to apply leave-in conditioners to my scalp area as it tends to make me feel greasy.  The argan oil is supposed help tame frizz and give the hair a nice shine.  It definitely looks and feels like a sunscreen lotion so it's a bit odd putting it in my hair.  I find that it does an ok job at taming my frizz but I haven't noticed my hair looking healthier or shinier.

So Susan Statement Skin - $20
This is a highlighting crayon and the color is a nice shimmery white champagne.  I tried this and it is pretty easy to blend out on the cheekbones.  I've also tried it on my eyelids and that worked well also.

Mica Beauty Gel Eyeliner & Seta Eyeliner Brush - $35, $16
I've received this brand of gel liner in a previous beauty subscription box and I liked it.  I've never heard of a gel eyeliner that's $35 though, yikes!  The eyeliner brush is really nice, it looks flimsy but the hairs are actually pretty stiff so I think it will make gel liner application easy.

Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Palette - $39.95 (usually on sale for $19.95)
I'm so excited to see this in my box this month!  Through my Boxycharm subscription I've been able to collect all 3 Revealed Palettes!  I feel like this palette is sort of a combination of the first and second Revealed Palettes.  I like the combination of neutral colors and pinks/purples.  I've played with this a few times so far I've found that the shadows are good quality.

Overall this was another great month for Boxycharm!  I love the palette and I look forward to using the eyeliner.

Each Boxycharm Box costs $21, shipping is free, and you can cancel your subscription at any time.   As you can see, I received 5 full size items in this month's box.  The retail value of this box is $137, that's more than 6 times the cost of the box!
