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
Receiving either palette would have been fine. 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. 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 near my eyes.
I was excited to receive the Intense Thickening Mascara. 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 the brow or lash 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 receive 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 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!
Final Thoughts on the January Box
Y’ALLLLLLLLL. Without a doubt, the January 2020 Boxycharm Box was worth the $25.00 price tag. Moreover, this month’s box was the best box I’ve received 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 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 literally smiled as I wrote this post. I felt so happy with the box contents this month. I am genuinely excited to try each of the products. I will be keeping everything! [Edit – 6/22/20:I decluttered the Too Faced Highlighter after trying it one time. Ultimately it was too pink for me.]
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 was likely the reason why I received all of the most-desirable 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 saw a sneak peak of the featured items in this month’s box.
All in all, at this point I am still undecided if I will renew my subscription. Stay tuned for next month’s unboxing to see what I decide!
