February 2015 BOXYCHARM Review

Disclosure: This box was received free for review purposes.

049

Boxycharm is a beauty subscription box that sends deluxe and full size beauty products for only $21.00/month.  I love reviewing BOXYCHARM, because they always send such great items.  I love experimenting with makeup and BOXYCHARM always has new items to try.  Their retail value of their boxes is also really big.

007

BOXYCHARM’s boxes are very cute.  They look like a little present.

008

First Look:  This month the theme is “Kisses form BOXYCHARM”.  This month, BOXYCHARM is going to be your Valentine.

063

The back of the information card lists everything in the box, along with the retail value.  They even tell you how to use each product.  This month, there were 4 full size products and 1 deluxe size product.

054

Jing Ai Velvet Shine Lip Jewel $22.00  This lip crayon is made with 100% natural macadamia seed oil, shea butter and jojoba seed oil.  It’s a long lasting formula  that feels great on .  I received the color “pink star”

055

This is a swatch of Pink Star.  This is a great pink shade and I love that it’s a lip crayon.

060

Modern Minerals Duo Fiber Mini Round Brush $15.00  This brush is super soft and is small enough to be used for highlights.  You can also use this a general shading brush.  I love getting new brushes and I can’t seem to have enough.

059

NCLA Heart Attack $16.00  This polish is so awesome.  This polish is filled with glitter, along with red and pink hearts.  As soon as I take off my current mani, this is going on.

057

This is a close up of the polish.  I really love it.

061

Mistura Beauty Solutions C-2 P Complexion Corrector $36.99 CAD  My corrector came damaged, and I have heard this has happened to other people too.  This can be used as a corrector pen for blenishes and other skin problems, foundation or a spot treatment.  This seems to have yellow undertones and didn’t blend in well with my complexion.  This is supposed to work with all skin tones, but it didn’t in my case.

053

mullein & sparrow’s Mini Facial Mask $15.00 I love the look of this little jar.  This mask is made with various clays and herbs which refine pores and exfoliate your skin.  You just mix a little of the powfer with water, to make the mask.

049

Final Thought: This box had a total retail value of $104.99.  Once again, BOXYCHARM delivers a box packed with awesome beauty products.  I didn’t like my corrector came damaged or really even the product itself.  Even without the corrector, this box had a $68.00 value, which still makes me happy.  BOXYCHARM is an affordable subscription packed with great beauty items and value.  Click HERE to check out BOXYCHARM.

    Did you get in touch with them about the damaged corrector? I’d like to know if they have good customer service.

  2. Subscription Box Mom, February 15, 2015:

    I am doing that today and will let you know. :)

  3. Jess, February 20, 2015:

    I emailed them last night around 8pm pacific time and haven’t heard back yet. But I’ve heard of quite a few people getting damaged correctors in their boxes so I wonder if they are getting barraged with emails? I’ll respond here and let you know the result as well :)

  4. Subscription Box Mom, February 25, 2015:

    I have not heard back yet. :(

  5. Anne, February 25, 2015:

    I heard back from them on the 23rd. I emailed on the 19th. This is their response. The charms have not posted to my account yet.

    Hello Anne,
    Thank you for contacting BOXYCHARM! We are so sorry to hear that your Mistura Beauty C2P Corrector arrived damaged! Please know that we have contacted Mistura and their manufacturing partner to inform them of the packaging defect. In an effort to prevent you from receiving another damaged Corrector, we have awarded 2,000 Charms for you to redeem any product(s) of your choice from our Reward Shop. If you don’t see a product that you like, don’t worry! Save your Charms as we are planning to add new products to the shop. You will see your Charms posted to your account within 3-5 business days.
    PS: We have seen other Charmers put the product from the Mistura Corrector into a makeup pot and apply it using a little brush. They sell empty makeup pots in most beauty supplies or you can recycle one from any product that you have at home that you don’t use or are close to finishing.
    We hope that this little BOXY-tip helps and that you love your next BOXYCHARM box! 😀
    Kisses,

    I just got another email from Boxycharm. I did not contact them again and can only assume others were not happy with their original offer so they changed it for everyone. Here is the update.

    Hello Charmer,

    We love having you as a Charmer, and we feel terrible that you received a damaged item in your box this month.

    Originally, we were only able to offer you 2,000 Charms for your damaged item. But we have some great news! We have added an additional 1,000 Charms to your account and they should be posted within the next 3-5 business days. If you do not see something that you like now, please save your charms as we will be adding new items to the Reward Shop in March! 😀

    XoXo,

  7. Subscription Box Mom, February 27, 2015:

    Wow! That’s great customer service.

  8. Anne, February 27, 2015:

    I agree, I’ve been very impressed with their customer service. Have you heard back yet?

  9. Subscription Box Mom, February 27, 2015:

    Not Yet, I am going to email again. Since mine is a review, it’s not a huge deal, but it would be nice to hear back.

  10. Subscription Box Mom, February 27, 2015:

    That’s good they are fixing it.

  11. Jess, February 19, 2015:

    Thanks for the great review! This was my first box and I liked it. But my Mistura came damaged. The rest was great..

    Except…the dreaded nail polish…

    Just as a warning— the nailpolish is horrible! Beware! I was so excited to try it because I loved the look and brand but it takes multiple coats and a pocket-full of luck to even get a heart or two on your actual nail. And it ends up looking cheesy once you actually get a heart..almost like you have weird bloody spots on your nail. I’d imagine to get a full-coverage bunch of hearts it would take something like 40 coats. LOL!

  12. Anne, February 19, 2015:

    My corrector came damaged as well. I sent them an email today. Did you hear back from them yet? I’m curious to see how they will handle this and if they will treat all their customers the same. I am new to their subscription.

  13. Anne, February 26, 2015:

    I am happy with the solution they offered to make amends for the broken corrector. I can understand them not wanting to send out another one if the same thing could happen. It seems many people received broken correctors and it must be a defect in the packaging the company chose. I like that I can pick out a product that appeals me instead of them picking one for me. That said, I hope they get some new items in soon to redeem for charms because right now I don’t see anything that I care for.
