Everything shipped in a little black box.
The theme for October is “Spellbound”.
The information card listed everything in the box, along with descriptions and retail values.
Dr. Brandt Poredermabrasion $58.00 This is a micro crystal cream that works deeps to clear pores and reduce the size of pores. This also works to improve your skin's texture. It has a gritty texture that you really feel working. Even the smell was nice. You rub the solution in circular motions across your face and leave it on for 1-2 minutes. After using this, I really felt my skin was clean and the pores especially around my nose and chin were less noticeable. There were some subscribers that were concerned that the product wasn't full to the top of the package, so Yosef Martin, founder of Boxycharm send a message out to subscribers (see below).
I noticed the concern over the Dr Brandt product. It was important for me to contact the brand directly for answer. Their team was very responsive, I got on a call with its CEO Stephen which was very attentive and wanted to personally address it.
“Dear Charmers, I wanted to personally involve myself on the current conversation regarding the Poredermabrasion. It is an exfoliator which will last a minimum of 3 months if you use 2-3 times a week. DrBrandt team puts 2oz in this product but we fully understood the perception you are having with the current tube. This formula is thick, dense and once the product settles,the tube appears less full. We can assure you the declared net content is correct. As being a worldwide skincare line we have to go through strict restrictions from EU and Asia, we cannot put a weight which is not the correct one if we ship outside the US ( which is our case).As being CEO of drBrandt I wanted to involve myself of your legitimate questions but I also want to guarantee that the product is delivering the exact amount written on the packaging. Stephane Colleu, CEO of drbrandt”
I hope it helps
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter $38.00 I am a huge fan of Becca cosmetics. I already two other pressed highlighters. This one is in “Prosecco Pop” which is a shimmery gold highlighter. I have a fair toned cool complextion, so gold isn't my best color. I tried this out, and it ended up looking really nice. You can see swatches of this and the other products at the end of the review.
Tarte Tartesit Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint $20.00 Subscribers received one of many different colors. I received “get it”. which is a very pale color. I really only wear darker, bolder colors, so this one was a bit of a miss for me. I do like the formula, because it didn't feel too drying on my lips. I might be able to mix this with another liquid lipstick to make a better color. This is free from parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, and more.
Dirty Little Secrets Illusion Eyeshadow Chubby $14.00 This eyeshadow stick was one of my favorite products in the box. This is a bronze color with gold undertones, but it seems to have some pink in it too. This glides right over my eyes and has a beautiful shimmer. I love this color. This also can be used as a highlighter.
Jonteblu Lip Liner Pencil in Spice $5.00 I received the lip pencil in spice. This color is a dark and more neutral tone than my lip paint. This lip liner was easy to apply and the color is beautiful. I used this color with a bit of gloss for a day time look.
These are swatches of the lip paint, eye crayon, lip pencil, and highlighter.
Final Thought: This box had a total value of $135.00! I love the Dr. Brandt item and I am going to end up having to get more when mine runs out. The eye crayon is another favorite item. It has a great color and I love the shimmer. Boxycharm is one of my favorite beauty boxes. The value is always outstanding and I love the products.
