My January Boxycharm Has Arrived - First Impressions
This month my Boxycharm arrived earlier than usual and to be honest I wasn’t so enthusiastic about receiving this one as the product offerings did not grab me as much as they have done, but I hoped that I would get some of the products more suited to me than not.
When I opened my box, I was a little disappointed I have to admit. I have five items, all of which are full-size as usual with Boxycharm, but they are not all to my liking. So, here is my Boxycharm list.
Oscar Blandi - Pronto Dry Shampoo Spray
I have never used dry shampoo, and can’t see myself ever doing so. So, unfortunately, this item is a non-starter for me, but I’ll gift it to a friend who I know will make use of it. The value of this item is $18 USD.
PÜR - Mineral Glow Bronzer
I have received this item in other boxes and I really like it. It nourishes the lips and really helps with the harsh Canadian winters. It doesn’t feel tacky or sticky and glides on well. I use it both under lipstick and on its own. I’m happy with this item. Value $16.00 USD.
Vintage - Highlighter Double
I was disappointed to see that all Boxycharmers would receive this product as I had received the Vintage single highlighter in a previous box. Although the highlighter is very nice, I would have preferred a different product type. I am so-so with this item which has a value of $35.00 USD.
So Susan - Fan Brush
Everyone was to receive a fan brush this month there was either this So Susan brush or a Crown brush. I am not sure which is the better of the two, although this is the more expensive at $18.95 USD whereas the Crown is $12.99, but both look similar. It is a very synthetic looking brush that is not as soft as some of the brushes I currently use, but I will try it out more before reviewing it.
I am pretty disappointed by this box, although I think I knew I would be from the previews. However, that is the excitement of subscription boxes. You cannot expect to like every product, every month, although this month was more disappointing than most. The value overall of my items was $113 USD, so worth the $21 subscription. I will use the highlighter and the lip cream. I will gift the dry shampoo and bronzer and I will rest judgement on the fan brush until I can put it to the test. So, not my best Boxycharm, but still excited to know what's coming next month.
