BOXYCHARM
BoxyCharm ($25 per month) is one of the most popular beauty subscription boxes that we review, with lots of loyal customers. They promise 4-5 full-size beauty products each month from a variety of both indie and established brands, with a total retail value of over $100 in every box. The beauty items featured vary from month to month, and will include beauty tools as well as skincare and haircare items—but BoxyCharm definitely leans more makeup-heavy than other popular beauty boxes. While we recommend starting with the $25 Boxycharm box, they also offer bigger boxes such as the Premium box with 6-7 products for $35/month or you can upgrade your box quarterly with BoxyCharm BoxyLuxe to get 8 products for an additional $24.99.

Featured Review: BoxyCharm Subscription Box Review + Coupon - March 2021

Review for BoxyCharm Subscription Box Review + Coupon - March 2021
Megan Kirkland profile picture by Megan Kirkland on April 6, 2021

My BoxyCharm box has an overall value of $121.00 which is great for a $25 box. But I really wasn't feeling this month at all. The only items I was really into were the palette and (weirdly) the lip oil. I really disliked the mascara and I have even stronger negative feelings towards the setting spray. The brush cleanser kit was fine. I hope that next month is a little more exciting. Read more...

"Bullshit"
I bought 2 boxes. Both say they were delivered. I never got either one. Can't contact boxycharm and feces tells you to contact boxycharm. I lost out over 50 bucks so yes this is highway robbery at its finest. I ordered birchbox and I actually got it. I'm contacting my credit card company and filing a statement.

"false advertising - they are not true to their 15 days and email address bounces back"
they specifically say they will email within 15 days of placing an order. FALSE ADVERTISING - because i never received any email. that email on the terms and conditions : [email protected] - i tried to email that email and got a bounce back . FALSE ADVERTISING. i want my refund or some communication from someone live.

"Sick of all repeats, issues with shipping but can’t bare to cancel..FOMO DAMN IT! "
I think I’m just about done with Boxy. Unfortunately, everything seems like repeats over and over again. Perhaps it’s because they’ve been putting items in Add-on and Popup for sale for items in an upcoming box. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Add-on/Popup shopping (probably way too much actually), and even though month after month I get notified they can’t fulfill my full orders, and/or waiting months (literally months to get some items - it’s 4-10-21 and I just got a shipment from the items I bought in November and December 2020!!). Anyway, I still can’t help looking, buying, and storing hundreds of items I’ve bought. I think I have enough for two lifetimes. Think I have a problem?? Lol. I just can’t bear to cancel due to FOMO DAMN IT! LOL

"Garbage Now!"
I used to love boxy, I had to take a break due to having way to much makeup. A year later I came back to get my Boxy again and it looks to have gone to garbage as well as going up from $21 to $25. I recommended everyone and anyone to this sub and now I see that was a big mistake. It used to always be 80-90% stuff you really wanted or could use all Makeup with a skincare item every so often. Now it looks like the base box has changed to mostly not makeup. It's a shame they had a such a good thing going. Sorry I'm not paying $25 for a 8 pan palate and setting spray. So off I go looking for another box that is actually makeup heavy like boxy used to be.

FAQ

Is BoxyCharm worth it?
With a promised retail value of $100+ per $25 monthly box, you'll typically get a great value from this subscription, even if you don't love every single item in your box. We've unboxed and published BoxyCharm reviews for over 80 individual monthly boxes from BoxyCharm since 2013– read our detailed reviews above to see what's inside past boxes, and read comments from other subscribers. You can also read our overview of what we received in 6 months of BoxyCharm to see exactly how many eyeshadow palettes and makeup tools we received over half a year! In that article, you’ll see that we found the average retail value of this monthly subscription was $135/month over the 6 months we analyzed.
When does BoxyCharm ship?
For new subscribers, BoxyCharm boxes within the US typically ship 5-10 business days from successful billing. For existing subscribers, each monthly box is shipped within 5-10 days of the first of the month. Canadian customers and non-continental US residents may experience longer shipping times.
What is the difference between BoxyCharm, BoxyCharm Premium, and BoxyCharm BoxyLuxe?
BoxyCharm is the monthly box that gives you 5 full-size beauty products, including one Choice item for $25 with an average value over $175.

BoxyCharm Premium is a monthly box that gives you 6-7 full-size items, including one Choice item for $35 with an average value over $215.

BoxyCharm BoxyLuxe is a quarterly option that sends you 8 full-size items, including up to 2 Choice items for $49.99 (or a $24.99 upgrade in addition to the $25 monthly box cost) with an average value over $395. You must be an existing regular BoxyCharm subscriber to receive this box and the $24.99 will be billed separately from your $25 monthly box.

All three tiers of this subscription are filled with beauty goodies from various beauty brands, with an emphasis on cosmetics like eyeliner, highlighter, full eyeshadow palettes, lippies, primers, and more—plus, sometimes, beauty tools and applicators.

How do I select my Boxycharm Choice option?
When the Choice window is open (check dates here), you can log in to your account and select the Choice banner at the top of the screen. There you’ll see the makeup products available for that month. Select your items and add them to your cart. When you are ready to check out, you hit the “Confirm and Get More” button to save your choice.
Is there a Boxycharm referral program? How about a loyalty program?
Yes! You can earn Charms, or BoxyCharm points, by referring friends. Login to your account and click “Earn Charms” to send email invitations, use their social media sharing buttons, or copy your unique referral code to send to friends another way. Make sure your friends remember to enter your referral code into the indicated field as they checkout! Once your friend is billed for their first box, you’ll see 500 Charms magically appear in your account.

In addition to earning Charms by referring friends, you can earn them by reviewing the items in your monthly box. Remember that 100 Charms = $1 to use in the Charm Room, which typically has full-size products listed ranging from $7-$45.

How do I cancel my BoxyCharm subscription?
You can easily cancel your subscription online at any time in your BoxyCharm account– no chatting or calling customer service required. Keep in mind that if you cancel and end up subscribing again in the future, you may find yourself on the waitlist before your subscription is active again.
