Boxycharm January 2017

Welcome back to my blog, or if you are new here, I’m so excited you stopped by.  I hope you stay a while, laugh a little and maybe even like, comment and subscribe so you don’t miss out on future posts/vlogs & utter randomness.

Today’s post is about the January 2017 Boxycharm subscription box.  If you haven’t been following me for too long you may have missed the post where I reviewed all of the beauty subscription bags/boxes I’ve tried.

Check that out here

If you are not familiar, Boxycharm is a monthly beauty box subscription in which you will receive 4 to 5 FULL SIZE beauty items instead of the delux mini or sample sizes you typically receive in the many other subscriptions.  The items are mostly make up related but can also include skincare and beauty tools, etc.  Not only are the items full size but the box has a minimum value of at least $100+ and the brands are a mixture of new brands to established brands you may already recognize.  The total cost is $21 per month and that includes shipping and you can cancel at any time.  I have been subscribed for 7 months and have not regretted it!  I’ve included a link so you can check it out and subscribe, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

So, let’s talk about what was in this months box.  I have not tried anything out yet as I just got the box in the mail last night,  but here are my thoughts…


Vintage Highlighter Double – Chocolate Diamond & Rose Quartz  – $35 value – I am so excited to try the Vintage Highlighter Double.  I already have one of their highlighters in Rose Gold that is so beautiful on the skin so I’m hoping these duo colors will be just as amazing.


Pur Mineral Glow Bronzing Powder – $25 value  – Pur is a brand I know and love and I’ve never tried their bronzers before so I’m super happy about that being in the box this month.  I also just hit pan on my ride or die bronzer Physcians Formula Butter Bronzer so that was pretty good timing.


So Susan Fan Brush – $18.95 value – I was not overly excited about the fan brush as I already have an E.L.F. one that I love, however this brush feels like such a good quality brush, much better feeling that the ones i currently have, so I will give it a shot.  Really you can never have enough make up brushes right?!


Gorge Amazing Konjac Sponge – $18 value – This item couldn’t have come at a better time because I just had to trash the konjac sponge I was using because it was so old.

NOTE: I can’t verify the info or value of this item at the moment as their website says they are under new management and there are tons of recent customer complaints/negative reviews stating they were charged for products that they didn’t receive and that they have received no answer from customer service for resolution or refund… (hmmm, even if I love this konjac sponge I will NOT be buying anything from them as that is already sending up red flags to me as a consumer but I’ll try it out since it came in this months box)


English Laundry Pour Femme Deluxe Roller Ball  – $25 value  – I was a little unhappy at first to see a roller ball perfume in the box because I was so worried it was going to be a fragrance that I wouldn’t love as I’m very particular when it comes to perfumes and fragrance.  Surprisingly I love the scent!  I’m packing it in my gym bag today and am planning to try it out since I will be showering & getting ready at the gym this evening.  (That process is a whole blog entry by itself but I digress)

NOTE: I can’t find the option to buy this roller ball in this particular fragrance by itself but it is a part of a $45 roller ball set that is available for purchase on their website.

Now on to the total value of this months box…

Basically according to my research and the product info card that comes in each box, this box has a total value of $121.95 worth of beauty products that I only paid $21 for!  I feel that is a total steal deal and after using the products I will really know if I love or hate them.  I have found in the past when you get a sample size or delux mini size that there isn’t enough product for you to try to really know if you love or hate it and if it works for you.

Once again Boxycharm didn’t disappoint.  I have yet to have a month where I was completely unsatisfied with the box.  Maybe there have been a couple of items here or there that I already had or knew wouldn’t work for me but that’s true of any subscription.  So for month 7 I am still satisfied and have no plans to cancel by subscription anytime soon.

So have you tried Boxycharm yet?  If you have, what do you think of it?  Have you been happy with what you have received and the value?  If not, why?  Fill me in!  Comment below or leave a link to your review posts.

If you haven’t tried Boxycharm yet, you so should!  Click the link above or click here if you are interested.

NOTE: I’ve heard that it’s difficult to get if you aren’t in the US so if you are outside of the US I apologize for raving about something you may not be able to get easily or affordably.

Until next time,

XOXO Crazy Jess

FabFitFun Fall 2016

Hey Y’all. In case you didn’t already know, Fall is my favorite time of the year like all the basic folks out there. I am a sucker for scarves, pumpkin spice and cinnamon apple scented/flavored everything, boots, leggings, , hoodies, sweaters, fire pits and smores. Yes!!! 🙌

So yeah back to my point. Today the postman delivered my Fall 2016 FabFitFun box. I was so excited I couldn’t even handle it. My husband might have made fun of me a little bit. 😜

In case you don’t already know, FabFitFun is a seasonal subscription box which usually comes with all full size items, plus a couple deluxe mini items as added bonuses. You get a variety of items in the box, as it’s not all makeup products which is one thing I specifically adore about this subscription. 

Here is a link in case you are interested in signing up:

 FabFitFun

It’s kind of pricy at $49.99 but it’s a seasonal box you will receive every three months which averages to about $16.67 a month. It’s totally worth it in my opinion. This is my third box and I’ve never been disappointed. 

Back to what is in the box:


One Modcloth vintage inspired blanket scarf (yesssss 👏)

One set of half-toe “toe socks” made by Toesox. These are an absolute no for me. Since I suffer from short stubby toes syndrome though. 🙁

One Pure Cosmetics Nude Collection eyeshadow pallet. Looks like a dupe for Urban Decay Naked palette but I haven’t swatched it yet to confirm quality. 

One “Nature Coloring Book”, so basically an adult coloring book and with a colored pencil set to go with it. 

One Skin Laundry Restoring Night Serum 

One The Created Co super cute coffee mug that says “Joy Comes In The Morning”

One Mullen & Sparrow French Lavender Body Oil 

One The Brow Gal by Tonya Crooks Brow Gel

One Spongelle Bulgarian Rose Body Wash Infused Shower Buffer

One Cottonell Fresh Care wipes 

One Secret Outlast deodorant mini 

I’d say this season was another win and I plan to continue my subscription. I so can’t wait for it to be cool enough to try out that scarf!!!  How basic will I look in my leggings, blanket scarf and oversized sweater drinking a PSL or Cinnamon Apple hot tea?  🍂😜🍃☕️

Have you signed up for FabFitFun yet!?!

Until next time,

XOXO

Boxycharm May 2016 

I recently signed up to receive a monthly Boxycharm beauty box. I was reluctant at first because it is $21 a month.   What initially intrigued me about this subscription box however is that each month you receive 4-5 full size items rather than just sample or delux sample size items like so many of the other subscription boxes. 

I received my box in the mail over the weekend and am just now getting around to posting about it. So here is what I received:


In total I received five full size items. I was pretty excited about that. Also, I had not heard of some of these brands before which is even better. 

Regarding product value, again I only paid $21 (including shipping) and received:

Blinc Eyelash Primer ($26 value)

OFRA Liquid Lipstick in the color “Pasadena” ($19.90 value) 

Pur-lisse Daily Lip Nourisher ($16 value)

Your Minerals Sweden eyeshadow in the color “Brown Hypnotik” ($23 value)

Anderson Lily Beach Butter Hand Cream ($24 value) 

$108.90 in total product value for only $21!!!  I’d say this box is a win so far and one of my new favorites!

One of my favorite items is the hand cream. It smells amazing!  It’s super moisturizing but not greasy. It’s perfect to sit on your desk and use throughout the day and it smells tropical and like the fragrance of summer trapped in a tube. 

Overall I’d say this box has been a win with a great value with a great price. I’m super excited to see what is in next months box. What’s even better is that I actually think I would actually use all of the products in this box (which I can’t say that for some of my other recent subscriptions). 

Have your tried Boxycharm?  If yes, did you like it?  If not, what are you waiting for??!!  If you used to in the past but have cancelled your subscription what made you decide to cancel?

Until next time,

XOXO,

Crazy Jess
