In this post, I’ll share with you my Boxy Charm December 2018 unboxing and review. I’ve written a more thorough post about what the Boxy Charm subscription is, so if you have any questions, I suggest you go check it out.
Boxy Charm is a monthly beauty subscription that features 4-5 full-size products for only $21. Another option would be the Boxy Luxe beauty subscription available to Boxy Charm members. Boxy Luxe is offered (referral link, use code Sarah-QYKBRRTN) every 3 months and includes addition full-size items for an additional $28 on top of the $21 monthly fee. When you opt-in for Boxy Luxe, you will get that super-sized box instead of the typical Boxy Charm box.

I’ve recorded a quick video on Instagram to give you a better idea of the colors and textures. If you like these sorts of videos, I would recommend that you follow me on IG, because I post videos and images often of some really cool products I try out.
Boxy Charm December 2018 Review
Here’s what was included this month:
Tarte Glitter Lip Paint in Insta-Famous
Full size price: $20
This is such a gorgeous glitter lip gloss. It is completely sheer and is meant to be used as a topper to another lipstick. Depending on what you are looking for in a gloss you may love it. If you are looking for something to add a slight sparkle without any color, then this would be for you.
- Cruelty free, vegan
- Formulated without parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate and gluten
- Includes sunflower seed wax and mineral pigments
Suva Beauty Protege Palette
Full size price: $34
As you can see in the video above, this is a very pretty palette with pigmented colors. I use it every now and then, but don’t gravitate towards it regularly. For one thing, I don’t like the way cool tone shadows, especially silvery ones look on me and as far as warm tones, I don’t care for orangey browns. This is just my personal preference as to color choices. Features 6 eyeshadows and 2 highlighters.
I think the quality is there and worth the purchase. If you like these shades, you will be happy with this palette.
- Cruelty free
- Made in USA
Cosmedix Detox Activated Charcoal Mask
This is a charcoal mask that needs to be rinsed off. My face certainly felt clean after using it.
Full size price: $30
Amount: 1.3 oz / 37 g
- Exfoliates skin with diatomaceous earth
- 1.3 oz / 37 g
- Cruelty free
Bodyography Lip Liner in Timber
Full size price: $12
This is a medium/dark brown nude lip pencil. Lip liner worked great. Bodyography is a proud PETA certified cruelty-free brand with ethical values, so extra points for that.
- Vegan and PETA certified cruelty free
- Formulated without parabens and gluten
- Enriched with coconut oil and vitamin E
- Made in the USA
Pretty Vulgar The Powder Room Translucent Setting Powder in Matte About It
Amount: .88 oz
A transparent setting powder that includes a cute little puff. You can use this setting powder to bake, which I don’t do. Honestly, I don’t reach for this often.
- Made in the USA
- Vegan and cruelty free
- Formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, gluten, oil and fragrance
Is the Boxy Charm subscription worth it?
Yes, I think so. The box cost $21, but oftentimes the individual items in the box would cost the same amount if not, more. I believe Boxy Charm does its best in selecting products that they think we’ll love and they do a great job of selecting different types of products as well.
If you are interested in signing up for Boxy Charm (referral link), use the coupon code Sarah-QYKBRRTN for the current offer.
