It’s time for another Boxycharm Premium review!
I haven’t hidden the fact that this subscription box has been majorly hit or miss for me. Last month was a win, this month is a definite loss. It’s not all bad, but I won’t be keeping most of the products.
I’ll explain exactly how Boxycharm works below, as well as share a complete review of the products that I did end up getting in my Boxycharm Premium box. If you already know the deal, skip on down to the March 2022 BoxyCharm Premium Review heading.
What Is Boxycharm?
Boxycharm is a monthly beauty subscription. They send a variety of full size skin care, hair care, and makeup products and tools each month.
Each month there is a theme. This month it’s “Game Changer” in honor of women’s history 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 its own cost (more on that in a minute). You can unsubscribe from the base box after that first month and just keep the Premium, if you want.
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 $25.00 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 $25.00/month, then join the waitlist for Premium. Once you are activated from the waitlist, you pay an additional $39.99/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 subscribers, you can check out the current offers on the BoxyCharm website sign up page.
March 2022 Boxycharm Premium Review
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation ($44.00)
In addition to this foundation, the first category for choices also included:
- Keys Soulcare Skin Transformation Cream Fragrance Free With Bakuchiol ($30.00)
I chose the foundation mostly because I’ve never tried anything from Charlotte Tilbury and have heard good things about the products.
I’ve never heard of the brand Keys Soulcare, but bakuchiol is really making a name for itself lately. I do have some other products with it in them, so I’ll still get to try it out soon!
Unfortunately all of the color choices for the foundation that would match my skin at the moment were sold out, so I chose a shade that might work in the spring or summer for me.
I tried it on the back of my hand and it is absolutely full coverage. It also has a matte finish. I usually use light coverage foundation and I use it more like a concealer to even out redness and blur pores. I’m not sure how this is going to work on my face, but if you prefer full coverage, matte foundation this is definitely it!
This product is made in Italy.
THE NUE CO The Pill All-In-One Serum ($85.00)
The additional choice product for the second choice was:
- SOMME INSTITUTE TRANSPORT Exfoliating Glycolic Acid Pads ($65.00)
Because my skin has very little texture, I chose the vitamin C, alpha-hydroxy acid and hyaluronic acid serum. I love all of these ingredients and the fact that this is an all-in-one product.
It also has anti-inflammatory ingredients like caffeine and bilberry and exfoliating ingredients like glycolic acid and tiger grass.
This might be a too-good-to-be-true kinda product, but we’ll see. I don’t have sensitive skin so I’m not too worried about any irritation.
This product is made in the USA.
Ciate London Dewy Skin Vitamin C Glass Glow Primer ($32.00)
I’ve not had the best luck with Ciate London products. I also have 4 or 5 full size primers that I need to work my way through.
I’m also not a fan of the super shiny, glass finish. It *might* be okay when paired with the Charlotte Tilbury matte foundation, but I’m probably not going to bother trying.
I’d rather pass this along to someone who might like it just as it is.
This product is made in the Czech Republic.
Athr Beauty The Big Bang Mascara ($28.00)
I just cleaned out my stash and have so many mascaras to use. I’m actually getting rid of several brand new ones because I just have too many.
Needless to say, I don’t need this one right now. I’ll be passing it along with the others.
This product is made in the USA.
One/Size by Patrick Starrr Ultimate Blurring Setting Powder ($30.00)
It takes me forever to use up a container of setting powder. And, just like with the mascara, I have about 4 or 5 full size jars from really good brands like Laura Mercier and Too Faced.
I don’t really know who Jeffrey Starrr is, other than he’s a beauty influencer, so I have not been “influenced” by him to want to buy his products (if that makes sense). I can see how fans might be interested in his brand, where as I typically prefer to stick to well-known brands with good reputations.
This product is made in the USA from imported products.
Grace & Stella Everything Is Better In Pink Collagen Boosting Eye Masks ($24.00)
I’m not a fan of sheet masks or eye masks. I’ve never really seen significant results after about an hour or two after wearing them.
I’m also terrible about remembering to use the ones I have – and I have a lot!
I’m going to be passing these along to someone else as well.
This product is made in China.
The retail value of my particular box is $243.00.
I am definitely aware that part of the reason that I don’t love my box this month is because of the stash of beauty products that I still have to use up.
However, with that said, there are products that I never or rarely get. I would love to see more nail and pedicure products, body scrubs and lotions, perfumes, eye liner (I know in the past I used to get a lot, but I rarely do now), shampoo and conditioner sets and more.
I do usually love the high-end skincare that I’ve been able to stay stocked up on for a fraction of the cost, thanks to Boxycharm. However, I’d just love to see them branch out a little more.
As far as the “Game Changers” theme in honor of women’s history month, I don’t think Boxycharm did a very good job with this. There is no information on the insert card as to who owns the brands featured. I did a little research and found out that Patrick Starrr is a male who identifies as a male and Grace and Stella is owned by a man, but his wife is somehow involved, as well.
April 2022 Boxycharm Premium Choice Options
The FIRST choice items for the April 2022 Boxycharm Premium box are:
- HERBIVORE BOTANICALS Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Smoothing Serum
- ICONIC LONDON Brow Silk
The SECOND choice items for the April 2022 Boxycharm Premium box are:
- DR. BRANDT Eye Cream
- MURAD Clarifying Oil-Free Water Gel
- MURAD Skin Smoothing Polish
I chose the Herbivore Botanicals product because I love the brand and it has the product of the moment, bakuchiol, in it.
For the second category, I went with the Murad Skin Smoothing Polish. I was completely out of exfoliator, then got two this month. But, it’s not a super common item from my experience so I went with it.
April’s Boxycharm box is off to a good start!

It looks like the Premium box was awesome last month! I typically only like the Base Box, but I may have to get Premium now. Thank you for sharing!

It’s definitely hit or miss. I have been so busy that I haven’t been able to review my most recent boxes, but June’s wasn’t very “premium.” The items were all basics from brands I mostly have never heard of. I feel like new brands should be in the base and established, premium brands should be in the premium box. Yet…I can’t bring myself to cancel haha!
