Is BoxyCharm Worth it?

Have you ever wondered if a Subscription box is worth investing? I was very skeptical Subscribing to BoxyCharm for several months until I decided to give it a try. It has been 4 months since I became a BoxyCharm subscriber and it has been one of the best beauty subscription box decisions I have made.

Being a Cruelty Free Only consumer my biggest concern was receiving products that do not meet my ethical standards. However, to my surprise 21 out of 23 products that I’ve received since July 2019 are Cruelty Free.

Is BoxyCharm Cruelty Free? According to Customer Service FAQ

“While @boxycharm strives to include brands and products that are cruelty free, we don’t exclusively feature cruelty free products.”

Is boxy charm right for you?

Only you can decide if this subscription box is good for you. I personally believe it’s a great investment and the odd have been in my favor (so far) in receiving cruelty free products. There are many other subscriptions boxes that are strictly Cruelty Free and/or Vegan such as LoveGoodly , VeganCuts and Petitvour .

Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics Review

DISCLAIMER: Youngblood cosmetics was nice enough to send me three of their products. This review is not sponsored. My review and recommendation are based solely on my experience with the Products.

Brand: Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics

Animal Testing Policy:  Cruelty- Free- PETA Certified

Products received:

Outrageous Lashes Full Volume Mascara (Shade: Black) Retails for $26

Lunar Dust (Shade Imagine) Retails for $22

Luminous Crème Blush (Shade: Champagne Life) Retail $27

The Youngblood Outrageous Lashes Full Volume Mascara contains a full volume formula that keeps your natural lashes healthy while giving you that envied false lash look.

The Youngblood Lunar Dust is a multi-dimensional, highlighting powder

The Youngblood Luminous Crème Blush long wearing blush that consists of an oil-free formula that transforms from créme to powder on the skin.

I received these products a few days ago and in order to give my honest review I had to wear the products for several day to tests its length of wear.

I loved the Mascara!!! This mascara truly does give you lases that full volume while still maintaining a natural look.

The Lunar Dust is very light weight and a little goes a long way. The only Con about this product is in order to get some of the product out is by pouring it into the lid.

The Crème Blush is So Smooth!!! This crème blush has a velvet feel and blends very easily on your cheek.

My Final thoughts:

I would definitely recommend the YoungBlood Mineral Cosmetics Outrageous Lashes Full Volume Mascara and the Luminous Crème Blush. As for the Lunar Dust, it applies very nicely however, I don’t like the fact that I had to pour the product in the lid and if I poured an excess amount it is difficult to pour it back into the container . Therefore, I don’t recommend the Lunar dust unless you are willing to go through with the packaging frustration.
