The July 2021 Boxycharm base box is finally here!
The base box items are a mix of a few well known or high-end brands with a lot of lesser known, lower value items making up the bulk of the potential items you could receive.
I was really hoping to receive the Reza Be Obsessed SeaSpray Vacation in a Bottle and/or the Beauty Bakerie Flour Setting Powder (even though I do not need another powder).
I wasn’t really interested in most of the other choices, but might try them regardless.
I’ve been surprised many times before, so I’ll try to hold off too much judgement until I try the products. Of course that’s only if I decide that I want to keep them.
Below is all about how Boxycharm works, but if you are already familiar and just want to see the products, skip on down to the July 2021 Boxycharm Review heading.
What Is Boxycharm?
Boxycharm is a monthly beauty subscription. They send a variety of skin care, hair care, and makeup products and tools each month.
How Does Boxycharm Work?
This is where things get a little bit confusing, so I will try to break it down and make it easy to understand.
Boxycharm has 3 different types of boxes, their regular monthly base box, a premium monthly box, and a luxury box that is only available quarterly.
Initially, I wanted to only sign up for the premium box. I kept seeing a button for “Join The Waitlist” but every time I clicked it, it took me to the page to sign up for the regular monthly box.
As it turns out, you have to be a subscriber to the monthly base box in order to be able to add-on the Premium box. That’s right, you will get two different boxes each month – each with it’s own cost (more on that in a minute). You can cancel the base box subscription after the first month of getting both boxes.
BoxyLuxe is a luxury box available every 3 months. You pay an additional fee to upgrade your base box to a luxury box. More details on this box are below.
How Much Does Boxycharm Cost?
Here’s a quick breakdown of each box, how much it costs, and what you can expect to get.
- BoxyCharm Monthly Base Box: this box is $24.99 a month. You will receive 5 full size beauty products, one of which you get to choose, with a value of at least $120.00. There is a huge variety of brands from lesser known brands to very popular brands. There are also many box variations each month, so what I have in my box may be completely different from what you will receive.
- BoxyCharm Premium: to get this box, you must be subscribed to the base box for $24.99/month, then join the waitlist for Premium. Once you are activated from the waitlist, you pay an additional $35.00/month for this box. There is a note that you can cancel either your base box or Premium box at anytime after the first month of being subscribed to both. The Premium box has 6-7 full size beauty products, two of which you get to choose, with a value of at least $175.00.
- BoxyLuxe: this is a quarterly box that replaces your base box if you choose to upgrade. The cost is an additional $25.00. You will get 8-9 full size beauty and lifestyle products, with the ability to choose up to 2 products. The value of this box is at least $250.
All of the boxes are eligible for add-on’s, access to the pop-up shops, and rewards for reviewing the products that you receive in your box each month.
It seems as if there is frequently a bonus for new subscibers, you can check out the current offers on the BoxyCharm website sign up page.

Sorry! I’m still not able to do unboxing videos, unfortunately.
July 2021 Boxycharm Review
Farmacy Whipped Greens Oil-Free Foaming Cleanser ($48.00)
The other choice items were:
- Illamasqua Unveiled Artistry Palette (already have)
- Alamar Cosmetics Brighten & Bronze Complexion Trio (no interest)
- Ofra Cosmetics Good To Go Mini Mix Palette (already have)
I don’t feel like I get many facial cleansers in subscription boxes and actually am running low.
There is the usual Boxycharm disclaimer on this product, as well. I have compared the products on Farmacy’s website to the ones that Boxycharm sends. The ingredient list is the same, the amount of product is the same and the packaging, with the exception of the Boxycharm disclaimer on both the box and bottle, is the same.
So, I’m not sure why they put it at all. It might have something to do with returning it to a store possibly?
This is not ideal for removing eye makeup, but it works great on the days I go makeup-free. It smells nice, lathers well and isn’t too stripping.
I’m very happy with my choice! The choice item what keeps reeling me into this subscription. I have been contemplating canceling for a while now.
This product is made in the U.S.A.
Beauty Bakerie Flour Setting Powder in Oat (translucent) ($24.00)
I am happy to have gotten one of the other two items that I was hoping for.
The cute little envelope that the Beauty Bakerie Setting Powder comes packaged in arrived torn and crumbled, but the jar inside was perfectly fine.
The shade that I received is described as colorless. It’s meant to set your foundation and concealer, while also blurring the appearance of pores.
I am still working through another powder, but I did give this one a test run. It does blend in nicely and leaves the skin feeling silky smooth.
I really like it!
It is made in the USA.
Generation Skin Hydrating Marine Algae Eye Patches ($49.99)
I am terrible about using eye patches and masks, but have been leaving them out so I see them and use them more often.
This box from Generation Skin has 20 sets of patches in it. They are meant to hydrate, de-puff and brighten the undereye area.
I haven’t tried them yet, but plan to soon and will update this section once I do.
The box states that these are “Made in China under strict supervision of The Blaq Group Pty Ltd Australia.” This is a sure sign that brands are aware that more and more consumers do not want or trust products made in China.
Outre 8 in 1 CBD Leave In Conditioner ($30.00)
I’ve already decided not to keep this leave-in conditioner product.
For starters, I have plenty of leave in conditioners to try out still, and usually don’t love them. I only wash my hair about twice a week, so it takes me a long time to go through a bottle – even sample sizes!
Second, not everything in the world has to have CBD in it. I think we’ve gone off the deep end when it comes to CBD and now that it’s literally put into every kind of product out there and used for every single ailment or issue, it almost seems impossible to really know what it’s good for.
I used one very expensive lotion with CBD in it and didn’t notice anything. Nothing. It didn’t moisturize any better, my skin didn’t look any different, and my muscles were still their usually tight, achy selves.
I am choosing to pass this along to someone else with the hope that at least it’s a decent leave in conditioner, if nothing else.
It does not state on the bottle where this product is actually made, only that it’s distributed out of California.
Basic Beauty Summer Lip Oil ($18.00)
I am not familiar with the Basic Beauty brand, nor do I need lip oil, so I won’t be keeping this item either.
The color is a very faint purplish pink color.
It does say that it is a Boxy Exclusive on the insert card that came in my box. However, it doesn’t say that on the package AND it’s available for purchase on Basic Beauty’s website, so I’m not sure what that’s all about.
This product is made in China.
I plan to definitely keep and use three products from this box – the Farmacy Whipped Greens cleanser, the Beauty Bakerie setting powder and the Generation Skin eye patches.
The retail value of this particular box variation is $150.00 according to the values listed by BoxyCharm. Since I only spent $25 for the entire box and plan to keep 3 items worth $100.00, the cost of the box is worth it.
Next, I do think that the items in this box fit into the monthly theme which is “FantaSEA.” The oil free cleanser and setting powder are great to help control shine during summer months and the leave-in conditioner and lip oil are great for protecting the hair and lips. The eye patches are made with sea algae.
I am still on the fence about canceling the base box and super close to pulling the trigger after seeing the choice items for August. I’m definitely starting to lean more and more towards canceling and trying something else, but am holding off to see if there are any other spoilers before they charge my account.
If you have any suggestions, let me know in the comments!
August 2021 Boxycharm Base Box Choice Items
The August 2021 Boxycharm Base Box Choice Items are:
- LAVAA BEAUTY Flirty Lash Set
- DR LILI FAN Probiotic Xlash Enhancer
- PURLISSE Ageless Glow Serum BB Cream with SPF 40
- ICONIC LONDON Ultimate Bronzing Powder
I wasn’t thrilled with any of the choice items. Because the Lavaa lashes come with glue and a lash applicator tool, I chose them.
