January BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

This morning I got my January box from BoxyCharm and I thought that now would be the perfect time to go through it. The theme this month is perfect for January, as it’s Fresh Start.

The first product we have is the Dr. Brandt Do Not Age With Dr. Brandt Triple Peptide Eye Cream. This is a super hydrating peptide powered cream that is supposed to recharge tired looking eyes for a more rested look, reduce puffiness and fade dark circles, diminish the look of wrinkles and fine lines and help to restore and replenish moisture. I do like a good eye cream and Dr. Brandt is a great brand, so I’m interested to try this out.

Next we have the Farmacy Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya. This is an oil and silicone free moisturizer that is supposed to give you lightweight and lasting hydration without feeling greasy. This has Moringa Water, Papaya and Willow Herb, which are to help clear pores of dirt and impurities and reduce shine. This is paraben free, formaldehyde free, synthetic fragrance free, phthlate free, mineral oil free and cruelty free. This is recommended for combination and oily skin. I really like the packaging on this with the shape and color of the pot.

Moving on we have the Ciate London Velvet Eyeshadow Palette. This is a relatively new palette and it has a mix of soft shimmers, hyper metallics and velvety smooth mattes. This formula is supposed to be very pigmented and have super soft application. I really like the packaging on this palette, it has a matte pinky/purple top with ‘Ciate London’ written in rose gold and the bottom of the palette is a shiny rose gold.

You get a good size mirror on this palette, which I always appreciate.

This is a 12 pan palette and the shadows have a wavy look in the pans. There is some irony here, I didn’t think that I would get this palette in my box so I ordered it from Ciate before I got the box. I already told a friend they could have this particular palette, so when I get the other one I’ll swatch it.

The second to last palette we have is the Ace Beaute Bronzed In Paradise Palette. This is my Choice item for the month. This palette is brown and the top has a matte flowered design with ‘Ace Beaute Bronzed In Paradise’ in a white square in the middle of the palette written in gold and there is a gold boarder.

For a face palette, this has a good size mirror and the mirror has a gold boarder around it.

With this palette you get four bronzers in rectangular pans and they range from light to dark browns.

They look darker in the pans, but when I swatched them I found that they all seem to be very workable and buildable.

And the last product we have is the Bali Balm Sweet Orange & Coconut Lip Balm. This has sweet orange and coconut essential oils. The sweet orange has a ton of Vitamin C which evens skin tone and protects against free radicals and the coconut moisturizes so you get soft and supple lips. This smells really good it has a tropical, citrusy and sweet scent and it’s bee friendly. I love a good lip balm, especially during the winter months because the cold can really chap your lips. Bali Balm has a deal going on on their website right now that is in conjunction with BoxyCharm, so if you use the code VALENTINES21 you get 55% off of your order.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your January box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get. 

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get in my February box :).

August 2020 BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

I received my August BoxyCharm box yesterday and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme for this month is Boxy Glamping, which is a great theme as for the late summer months.

So the first product we have is my choice item for the month, the Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Purifying Cleanser. This is a cleanser that removes your makeup, residue and any dead skin you may have while also getting rid of sebum and decongesting your pores. This says it will leave your skin feeling mattified and fresh but it won’t dry it out. This is a product I’ve heard a lot of good things about, so I’m excited to try it and I’ll let you guys know what I think.

The next product we have is the Minetan Body Skin Hydra Glow Sleep Serum. This has a triple action hyaluronic acid formula that works in a time release fashion so you get layers of hydration as you sleep. This is supposed to instantly absorb when you put it on and will not only leave your skin super hydrated but super glowy when you wake up. I really like the idea of this, so I’m interested to try it out and see how I like it.

Moving on we have the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Primer. This primer says it will enhance your eyeshadow and keep it locked in from day to night so you don’t have to worry, dries quickly and transparent. It’s also cruelty free. I love a good eye primer and I do have a couple of favorites, so I’m interested to see how this one compares.

The second to last product we have is the Trestique Summer Glow + Go Set. This is a mini set of Trestique’s best selling shades of highlight stick, blush stick, eyeshadow crayon and brow pencil. The highlighter is in the shade Maldives Luminescent and it’s an absolutely gorgeous champagney shade with just the right amount of shimmer and a great glow when it hits the light. I was looking to buy another highlighter in a shade like this, so this is perfect. The blush is in the shade Moroccan Rose. It’s a nice rosey shade that leans towards the natural side and appears to be very buildable. I don’t usually like blush sticks, but I’ll try this one out and see how I feel. The eyeshadow crayon is in the shade Tahitian Shimmer and it’s a unique shadow. It does have a nice amount of shimmer and went on really creamy. It’s a mix of a brown/gold/bronze. It’s a very pretty shadow. And the brown pencil is in the shadow Americano. It’s a nice medium brown in a warmer tone. I like the triangle shape of the pencil and how you can get in there and be precise.

And the last product we have is the Clarins Velvet Lip Perfector in 03 Velvet Red. This is a liquid lipstick with a moussey texture and a velvety finish. In tone this is a deeper red, but you can tell it has berry undertones. It has shea butter to condition and nourish your lips so they feel hydrated for hours after application. Based on the swatch I can tell this is super pigmented and it felt really light on my hand so I assume it will feel light on the lips. This also has one of those cushion applicators, and I don’t have a lot of lip products with that style of applicator so hopefully it applies as well as others.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your August BoxyCharm box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get in my September box :).
