"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."

Customer service is AWFUL. When you receive a box containing damaged items, they keep you in a never-ending loop of submitting photos and information without ever correcting their mistakes.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE BoxyCharm. I have been subscribing off and on for over two years. My "off" periods only occuring for financial purposes. Not that Boxy breaks the bank or anything. For twenty five dollars a month and the quality of the products received in the box $25 is a stellar deal. I typically find that I don't have to shop for makeup or skincare items at all when I am subscribed. Minus my cult favorites that I can't live without. All in all it's the best subscription box around for beauty products. HOWEVER, I am a little bit upset about the lack of advertising for the free Morphie higjlighting palette. I became a retuning customer in the month of December and would have loved to receive the palette. Oh well !

I have the Boxycharm Base Box and I absolutely love it! I've had different sub boxes in the past, but Boxycharm is my very favorite! I am so grateful for being able to receive such nice brands and wonderful products for such an amazing price.

I love these boxes. I subscribe to both Boxycharm and BoxyLuxe. Every month and I look forward to getting the base box and the BoxyLuxe is wonderful . They are well worth the money!!

This was one of my favorite boxes! I really loved everything i got. I don't mind the poetics as it is worth it to me. I spend a lot of money monthly going to Ulta or Sephora. With Boxycharm i spend less at the stores and get more for my money. 🏆 Winner!

I am subscribed to all 3 Boxycharm tiers. I have the base box, the premium, and quarterly I recieve the Boxy Luxe in place of the base box. I go back and forth between loving Boxycharm over Ipsy one month, and then Ipsy becomes my favorite for the next month or so. I really love that I can select an item out of a few different products to choose from each month to be an item included in the following month's box. You do have to follow the *choice dates* closely and the time it becomes open for us Charmers to start picking our item. Some months the items go quickly, but the choice days have become some of my favorite days to look forward too, so my alarm is set and ready to alert me when to login and mark my selection ;)

My boxy charm this month was literal garbage, 4 out of 5 ended up in the trash can. And the 5th is just going to be used as a back up nude lipstick. It was so bad I cancelled my subscription

I have the basic box, Luxe Box and Premium. I wanted weeks for my products for the premium box. I received it today. I did not get what I picked for my item. I could not use any of the items. They were either molded, damaged and with the cuticle oil top half on and there was oil all over all the products. Numerous items had mold or dirt of some kind on the bottles in the packages. Broken packages and cheap items. They advertise they offer higher end brand name items. But I’ve been with this company for months now. And it has always been slow at shipping out, unimpressive products most of the times and now this month was the worst with the dirty molded items. And I’m out of $35 and on meds for my allergies after opening the box as I’m highly allergic to mold. The premium Box is definitely a no and now I’m wondering how safe their products are and how are they made and stored. I have plenty of pictures if needed!

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.
