BoxyCharm Premium Review – January 2020

IMG-2595

Hi all! I’ve just received my January BoxyCharm Premium! This is a fairly new subscription from BoxyCharm.¬† It’s a little more products than the regular and a little less than the BoxyLuxe.¬† Here’s the details:

  • It‚Äôs $35 a month
  • 6-7 beauty items a box
  • $175+ Value
  • You get to pick one of the items
  • The items will be different from BoxyCharm/BoxyLuxe ‚Äď you can subscribe to both with no product overlap.

The products I received are:

IMG-2593

The total this month is $221 — good for a $35 box!

IMG-2598IMG-2600

This is such a gorgeous palette in person.¬† This is what I chose this month, and I’m so glad I did.¬† The packaging is stunning, and so are the shades!¬† I am going to try to review this sometime this month and I’ll do swatches when I do.

IMG-2603

I was very surprised to see this in the box!  I heard that a single Kat Von D shadow would be included, so I was very excited to see the Natasha Denona top coat shadow in my box! I love anything purple, too, so that made it even better! IMG-2605IMG-2607

This is a close up of the shadow and a swatch.¬† It’s just a wash of shimmer, but it looks gorgeous over shadows!¬† Since it has gold and silver in it, it can be used in both cool and warm toned looks.¬† I’ve used it with a purple look, but I’m going to keep playing with it.¬† Stunning!

IMG-2608IMG-2609

I’m always on the lookout for new brow products.¬† I think 2019 is the year that I started getting my brows together and I hope to perfect them in 2020!¬† The brow pencil in this kit is more of a medium brown, and I have dark brown hair.¬† But, I might keep this in my stash and try it when I finish a pencil or two.¬† I think the concealer/highlighter stick looks pretty nice.

IMG-2602

I’m very excited for this.¬† I’ve already used it a couple of times and love it! I’ve been using it as a primer. It sits nicely over my sunscreen and makes a gorgeous base for makeup.¬† I also layer a pore filling primer in my t-zone over this serum and my makeup looks amazing with it.¬† I have just started trying out Farsali products and have been loving them so far.¬† ¬†I received the Farsali Rose Gold Skin Mist in my November BoxyCharm and I purchased the Farsali Skin Goals – Blur, Prime, Hydrate & Soothe Set¬†for myself and have been trying those serums and primers.

IMG-2597

I was so excited to see Tula in the box until I realized that it’s an acne cleanser.¬† I haven’t had acne for years, so I’m wondering if BoxyCharm uses our beauty quizzes at all!¬† It’s the only type of skincare I can’t use.¬† I will have to pass it on to someone else.

I do think I’ll keep and try the bliss mask.¬† My pores are large and look congested, even though I don’t have oily skin.¬† So, I’ll test it out and if it’s too harsh for me, I’ll pass it on.

 


I’m pretty happy with my box this month. I love the Farsali serum, the eye shadow palette and the Natasha Denona eye shadow topper.¬† I won’t use the Tula cleanser and I might try the mask and brow kit.

I’m still trying to figure out how I feel about this box.¬† It’s $10 more than the regular BoxyCharm. In the last few months, I have loved about half of the box and felt meh about the other half.¬† So is it worth it? Maybe?¬† I’m going to keep getting it at least for a few more months.

Do you get this box?  What do you think?

Get Ready For The Heat With Fresh Summer Beauty Products

It’s not quite summer yet, but it has been hot in Kansas City!¬† This has me thinking about (and needing) new beauty products for the change in weather and humidity.

I was sent the following products for my honest review.¬† They will help my hair, body and hair removal this summer.¬† I think I’m almost ready for it now!

Feather-light, heat-activated formula effortlessly tames and defies while reducing drying time.¬† It has a proprietary smoothing blend of Camellia and Abyssinian Oils along with soy lipids and seaweed to seal hairs’ cuticle and provide intense surface smoothing with long-lasting shine. I light using it before I dry my hair and afterwards to smooth any extra frizzies I might have.

ColorProof TruCurl Anti-Frizz Oil¬†($25 USD)¬†Revolutionary, clear, non-staining, oil nourishes, defrizzes and restores hair to its healthiest condition ever. Provides long lasting exquisite shine, full spectrum UVA/UVB color and heat protection.

ARM&HAMMER Invisible Spray Body and Foot Powders

Sometimes it‚Äôs not always about seeing it to believe it!¬† The new ARM&HAMMER‚ĄĘ¬†Invisible Spray Body and Foot Powders¬†offer a mess free, invisible application while¬†absorbing sweat and moisture.¬†¬†That‚Äôs right, this formula tackles harsh¬†odor¬†without leaving any white mess on clothing, feet¬†or shoes!¬†¬†Although these¬†invisible¬†spray¬†powders¬†are¬†not¬†noticeable to the eye, your other senses will certainly pick up on their fresh aroma.

ARM & HAMMER‚ĄĘ Invisible Foot Spray Powder ($6.99 USD) —¬†This is such an interesting product.¬† It sprays on clear and doesn’t transfer anything to my shoes.¬† It instantly freshens my feet, even after a long day.¬† The only thing is that my feet feel a little dry when I spray it on.¬† It does make my feet less sticky and smelly!

ARM & HAMMER‚ĄĘ Invisible Body Spray Powder ($6.99 USD) — This is nice to spray on the body on hot days.¬† I like to spray it before I go out, and when I get too hot and sweaty during the day. Both of these smell fresh, like deodorant.

The ARM&HAMMER‚ĄĘ Invisible Spray collection is available in May 2018 in the foot care aisle at Walmart and other select retailers.

What are your go to summer products? I will definitely have more summer beauty posts coming!
