Spongelle You Have My Heart On A String

Full Size $15.00

What Boxycharm says: “A heart shaped body wash infused buffer enriched with hydrating olive oil and a blend of energizing and toning extracts.”

How to: “Use the soft side to cleanse and tone the skin, and use the textured side in a gentle circular motion to exfoliate and stimulate circulation.”

This product is a lot bigger than the pictures suggest, and its always nice to get something so large and cute! I can’t wait to try this out and see if it makes any difference for my skin. I also am wondering if it lasts for more than one shower, because otherwise it would seem like a waste.

Beauty For Real Blush + Glow Stick

Full Size $24.00

What Boxycharm says: “A 2-in-1 blush and highlighter created to not only color and highlight, but also to provide anti-aging benefits. This cream-to-powder long wear formula delivers light reflecting benefits and glowing radiance, which ensures a smooth, beautiful, flawless finish.”

How to: “Can be applied with fingertips, worn alone or over foundation to highlight, sculpt and warm your eyes, cheeks, lips and body.”

This is probably the thing I was most excited for. I love cream cheek products, I find that they last the longest on my skin and they blend beautifully. I haven’t used this yet so on Monday I will wear it to class and see how long it lasts. The blush is my favorite side, it is such a universally flattering color. This reminds me so much of my NARS blush stick!

Shray Ms. Amazing Facial Mask

Full Size $12.00

What Boxycharm says: “An ultra hydrating mask to quench thirsty, ragged and dull skin. This moisturizing mask is gentle enough for everyday use yet tough enough for your supercharged life.”

How to: Test a small amount on a small patch of skin prior to application: everyone’s skin is different. Clean skin. Apply mask for 10-15 minutes. Remove. No need to wash your face! The hydrant will set as lotion and perfect make-up primer.”

So as soon as I got this box, I took some pictures then quickly put this sheet mask on. It felt so cooling and amazing and it didn’t irritate my skin at all. I definitely noticed how soft my skin was for the rest of the day! I am not sure if I will be repurchasing another mask from Shray (because 12 bucks is pretty steep for one mask), but I will for sure be buying more, cheaper, skin masks in the near future!

Ofra Banana Powder Godet

Full Size $12.00

What Boxycharm says: “This innovative new product can be used as an all-in-one face powder.”

How to: “Use to conceal dark circles underneath the eyes, as a setting or finishing powder, or even as a light matte eyeshadow.”

I love banana powder. It brightens up my looks, especially when I am tan. I also love the brand Ofra, even though I’ve only tried their lip products so far. This is just a pan, but luckily I just recently ordered my first Z-Palette so I will have a place to stick this. I am a little too pale right now to fully utilize this product but once spring break hits I will dig into this and post a review.

Freeze 24/7 Anti-Aging Eye Serum

Sample Sized $58.00

What Boxycharm says: “Say goodbye to fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness with this ground-breaking, lightweight eye serum.”

How to: Apply a pea size amount under and around the eye area. Allow 2-3 minutes for product to absorb before adding moisturizer or makeup.”

58 fucking dollars? For this tiny thing? I am almost too shocked by the price to even enjoy this. Who am I kidding, I coated my eyes with this the second after I took this picture. It feels nice, it hydrates my skin, but it doesn’t do anything that my $10 eye cream doesn’t. Maybe over time it will make a difference, but as of now, I am not 58 bucks worth of impressed.

Realtree For Her

Travel Sprayer $12.99

What Boxycharm says: “A delightful fragrance with the sweet scent of pomegranate, a hint of persimmon and an exotic scent of orchids.”

How to: “Spray and enjoy.”

I am unsure about this packaging. I can’t decide if it is tacky or kind of cute. The smell is nice and fruity with a hint of flowers. On Monday I plan on wearing this to class to see how long it lasts on my skin.

This month’s box was pretty great. I am most excited about the Ofra powder and the Blush/Highlighter stick. Boxy charm continues to be my favorite subscription service, because you almost always get at least 3 full size products and I never find myself totally disappointed. Let me know how you like your Boxycharm this month! Thanks for reading!!

Glowingly yours,

Jess
