June 2016 Boxycharm - First month shipping to Canada!

I was so excited when I saw that Boxycharm announced that they were going to start shipping to Canada! 

Boxycharm is $21.00 a month + $5.00 shipping to Canada (shipping is free to the U.S.) Boxycharm sends 4 to 5 full size and luxury size beauty items. 

Looking back at past reviews, this box focuses heavily on make-up items - so that is something to keep in mind! (I personally love all the makeup though and they have sent full size palettes in the past!)

So I will say, there was some shipping issues the first month with shipping to Canada - this box originally included a nail polish, which for some crazy reason can only be shipped certain ways. All the boxes had to be returned and they remade all the boxes for Canadians and shipped them again, which is why this is a couple of days late!

While I appreciate all the effort to get us a new product and remake the cards and send everything back, I do wish they would have emailed Canadian subscribers first to let us know what was going on. 

June 2016 Boxycharm - First month shipping to Canada!

This ships in a little black box. And, the theme of June's Boxycharm is "Girls Just Wanna Have Sun" and this came with 5 products. 

Boxcharm also includes a detailed product card:

Here is a closer look at the 5 products included:

Farmacy Coconut Gel Mask Medley ~ 3 Pack for $24.00. This Coconut Gel Mask provides intensive hydration and restores the skin's natural balance helping even skin tone and improve overall clarity.

This set of 3 masks is $32 Canadian on Sephora. I actually LOVE these masks - they are amazing! I have featured them on a past Monthly Favourites and I just reviewed this mask on a past Mask Wednesday

I had just used up my 3 set and was planning on buying more, so I was so happy to see these in the June box! The cost of these 3 masks was more than the cost of this box so I'm happy!

Ofra Oil Control Pressed Powder ~ $39.95 US. Designed to adhere to makeup throughout the day. Perfect for application in a TV studio or on film sets. This product can also be used to control oil secretion.

This seems slightly overpriced to me for a pressed powder, but I am okay with receiving setting powders - this is a good product and I do think I will use it a fair bit in the Summer. 

Cougar Beauty Mineral Face & Body Shimmer ~ $34.00 US. This Mineral Face & Body Shimmers are formulated using feather-like shimmering minerals, adding a radiant sparkle when lightly brushed anywhere on the body. Great for adding a little extra sparkle to any look! 

This is not a product I would normally buy for myself, but I actually like it - it is a very delicate shimmer so it could be dusted anywhere for a little highlight. I like the idea of adding it to a lotion for a subtle body shimmer.

Girlactik Precise Marker Eyeliner ~ $20.00. This Precision Marker eyeliner is designed to create a super thin or thick dramatic line,since the tip is so soft and precise. The formula is weightless, long lasting, water resistant, smudge proof and lies comfortably on the eye with no pulling or tugging. With all of these things, how can applying eyeliner be hard these days!

I'm actually quite excited about this eyeliner - I love finding a great felt tipped black eyeliner! Look at how precise this tip is! It looks amazing - smudge-proof, water-resistant, etc. Can't wait! 

Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in "Pasadena" ~ $19.90. OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick is a one step full lip color that does not feather. These vibrant colors will give you a vivacious new look.They are creamy and soft in texture, moisturizing the lips and creating a long lasting lipstick effect. No need to use lipliner, this liquid lipstick gives a beautiful edge to your lip look!

So there was certainly some question about whether this was full sized because it does look like a deluxe sample size (which I would be fine with) but the website says the full size liquid lipsticks are 6g and this package said it is 8g so it seems to be bigger than full size?! Anyways, I love the shade Pasadena - it seems like the perfect rosey mauve neutral (which I love!)

Boxycharm came with 5 full sized items and a value of $137.85 - I really love that Boxycharm delivers full sized items and came with a huge value! I know this is a little more than Ipsy or Topbox, but it seems worth it! 

What did you think of the June Boxycharm? Did you sign up right away when you saw them coming to Canada?

  1. I have been interested in trying the Farmacy masks as well since I love the serum and exfoliating grains!

    1. I'm the opposite - I need to try their serum after loving their masks! Hope you enjoy when you get to try them!
