So many unboxings right. I know, but due to the lockdown all the packages were stuck with Aramex and Customs. Then it’s like they were all released in the same week. Although I skipped the May box due to the lockdown 🙁 . So let’s jump straight into the Boxycharm April 2020 unboxing, shall we.
I don’t know if it’s just me but do my boxes seem skincare heavier recently? Anyone else experiencing this too? Like I am really missing the eyeshadow palettes man.
Boxycharm April 2020 Unboxing
Elemis Superfood foaming facewash
I will admit I am always excited for certain brands, regardless of what it is. This one is a newer launch by Elemis, which makes this even more intriguing. Also the retail value is $32 – R557.55 , already more than I paid for the subscription. Which by the way is $25.00 , (but the amount that I was charged was R515.00 for April ) a month.
Iconic London Illuminator
I can’t even begin to tell you how long I’ve wanted this. But it seems it’s one of those items that I add to cart and the second I click out of the website I forget about it. Not because I don’t want it but I guess it’s not one of those I have to have it things. For me if this was a setting spray, I would have been all over it. Ok so retail value on this one is $40 which is R696.93 with the current exchange rate.
But on iconic’s website, because they do ship to SA, it shows as R678.00. Ok I am no longer complaining about my box.
Really there is no better value than Boxycharm and Fab fit fun, but the shipping costs are insane for FFF, because of the weight of the boxes, I can’t.
Benefit Porefessional Hydrating primer
This we can get here, it retails for R495.00, and is currently on sale on Superbalist, if you wanted to try it, it currently R396.00. This is also $32, insane I know but benefit has been a cult primer for a very long time and with good reason. It’s awesome.
The Original Makeup Eraser – Makeup Eraser – Sunset
Retail of this is $20 which is R348.51. For a cloth, insane. I have to see if this works. This thing better remove all my makeup with only water and then wash itself off , fold itself up and get back in it’s box. Although I can’t find this anywhere except Boxycharms website and some ebay post came up. So I’m guessing this was in partnership with Boxycharm. If you know, please let me know what the deal is.
Lavish 5 Piece Neon Brush set
$29.99 on the boxy website, are they for reals? R522.59. I can buy so many brushes from Eco tools or Real Techniques for that price. But then again, as everyone says, don’t knock it till you try it, right!? I guess I’ve not heard much about this brand, so automatically my brain goes to, it has to be sh!t or cheap.
Total retail value of this box is $153.99 which is …..drum roll please R2683.35…. What!!???
So my shipping was R304.00. The total I spent on this box is R819.00. I’d say that’s well worth it for me. Do you agree?
If you do receive Boxycharm. What did you get in yours. If you don’t do you think getting these are worth it?
If you would like to join, feel free to use my link, it’s in the previous boxy post, just in case you missed it or just wanna hang out some more.
*NB* This is not an affiliate link and I pay for all my boxes myself. I just earn charms, which I can then use on the Boxycharm website to purchase items they have for sale.
Thanks for popping by.
