Subscribing to Boxycharm had me riding a rollercoaster of emotions in 2019. As with all subscription box services, some monthly boxes are better than others. Although I felt like December’s box was great, was the January 2020 Boxycharm any good?
Please keep reading for my unboxing of the January 2020 Boxycharm!
January 2020 Boxycharm
What was in the January 2020 Boxycharm Box?
Ace Beaute Vintage Dawn Eyeshadow Palette | $34.99, CF
I would have been happy with either palette. However, I love how the Vintage Dawn Palette is an interesting take on a half-neutral, half-colorful palette.
Glow Recipe Watermelon Sleeping Mask | $22.00, CF
Glow Recipe is one of the hottest indie skincare brands on the market and the Watermelon Sleeping Mask is raved about online. I contemplated picking up one of the Glow Recipe holiday sets containing this mask, so I am glad that I held off!
Grande Cosmetics Grandedrama Intense Thickening Mascara | $25.00, CF
Although I know I have been blessed with long, black lashes, Grande Cosmetics’ lash and brow serums have always been tempting to me. However, as someone with vision problems, I am always nervous about chemicals that go near my eyes.
I was excited to receive the Intense Thickening Mascara because this is a “safe” product for me to test from the brand. If I like this mascara, I’m likely to feel more comfortable trying one of their serums!
Too Faced Diamond Light Highlighter | $36.00, CF
When the Too Faced Pretty Rich Collection was released in 2019, I didn’t feel called to purchase anything. However, I am happy to have received the Diamond Light Highlighter based on swatches I’ve seen online.
Wander Beauty Trip for Two Blush and Bronzer Duo | $36.00, CF
Would you believe that I’ve never tried Wander Beauty? I was thrilled to finally receive something from the brand in this month’s Boxycharm. Also, I wear powder blush and bronzer almost daily, so I’m excited to try this duo!
So Was the January 2020 Boxycharm Box Worth It?
Y’ALLLLLLLLL. Without a doubt, the January 2020 Boxycharm Box was worth the $25.00 price tag. Not only was this month’s Boxycharm worth the price tag, but this month’s box was the best box I’ve gotten so far.
Not only did this month’s box contained a mix of well-known indie and mainstream brands, but the January 2020 Boxycharm contained a great variety of makeup products! I liked that each product was worth ~$25-$35.00. I’ve noticed sometimes when Boxycharm includes a luxury product within a box, the other products included in that month’s box are more likely to be duds.
Believe it or not, I was literally smiling as I wrote this post because of how happy I was with its contents. I am genuinely excited to try each of the products in this month’s box, so I will be keeping everything!
Rating: 5/5 Stars
But was the January 2020 Boxycharm too good to be true….
With all the above praise being said, deep down, I am skeptical as to why I received such an amazing box this month. In previous months, I usually received one or two of the products featured in the monthly advertisements and sneak peaks.
My attempt to cancel my subscription may have been the reason why I received all of the most-desired featured products this month. When attempting to cancel Boxycharm, I was prompted multiple times to keep my subscription. After pushing past the first “are you sure you wan’t to cancel” prompt, I was shown a sneak peak of the featured items in this month’s box.
All in all, at this point I am still quite undecided if I will renew my subscription after I receive my past pre-paid box next month. So stay tuned for next month’s unboxing to see what I decide!
