BoxyLuxe unboxing right here! See what’s in the box every quarter.
BoxyLuxe Unboxing March 2019
Summary: Overall this was a good subscription box. However, there were definitely issues but for the cost paid for the box ($50) and the value given (a little over $300), I can see past these issues.
Main issue: Many subscribers including me received the wrong shade CoverFX palette even after completing the quiz BoxyCharm themselves insisted was necessary in order to receive the right CoverFX palette.
How disappointing is that, but were we really surprised? Overall, I was disappointed but expected this to happen, because it’s BoxyCharm. Love them or hate they’re not good at personalizing beauty boxes.
In the end, BoxyCharm apologized to subscribers and issued 4,500 charms to the individuals affected. Moving forward let’s hope they can find a way to better personalize their beauty boxes because this was definitely not a good look.
Now let’s look at the shocking retail value for each product. There were 10 items in BoxyLuxe March. Hence, assuming all other factors are constant, the value calculated ($50/10=$5) for each product is $5.
