What’s in the box? | Boxyluxe December 2018

Hello friends 🙂

I finally received my Boxyluxe for December 2018 and I wanted to share what’s in the box with you 🙂

If you have been following my blog for a while now, you know that I love Boxycharm, which is a monthly subscription box that costs $21.00 a month. If you are a charmer (a Boxycharm subscriber ) you can upgrade your original subscription to Boxyluxe.

Every 3 months (March, June, September and December) instead of the regular Boxycharm box, you will receive the Boxyluxe with a total of 9 to 10 full sized beauty items worth over $250.00 . During these months you will be billed an additional $28.99 to your monthly Boxycharm payment.

For the months in between (i.e. January, February, April, May etc) you will continue to receive your regular Boxycharm and you will be billed $21.00 a month.

I have not tried any of these products yet so this is by no means a review or first impressions. These what’s in the box posts are merely unboxings of larger subscription boxes and hauls where there are a lot of products.

So the theme for Boxyluxe December 2018 was Tis the sea-sun and there were a total of 9 products in the box.

The box features the following:

Elemis Pro Collagen Cream
Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream   $89.00

Its proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and is said to leave your skin soft, smooth and supple. The scent on this moisturiser is heavenly 🙂 . It is sold in South Africa for R1165.00 which is a lot, so its awesome that I got this in the box.

Tarte Glitter Lip Paint
Tarte Glitter Lip Paint   $20.00

A sheer comfortable lip gloss that contains reflective glitter to give the appearance of fuller lips. It contains sunflower seed wax and mineral pigments that coat, soothe and soften your lips.

Violet Voss Pro HG Palette
Violet Voss Pro HG Palette  $45.00

The Holy Grail palette has a range of matte, satin and metallic shades. I have not swatched them yet but at a glance the shades are really vivid and beautiful. It’s a vegan, cruelty free formula that is created with finely milled pigments. I can’t wait to try it.

Suva Beauty Protégé Palette
Suva Beauty Protégé Palette   $34.00

This palette features 6 eyeshadows and 2 highlighters. It’s also a very pretty palette. I haven’t swatched it yet but it does look promising. I don’t see a transition shade so that’s probably the one thing it lacks.

Luxie Rose Gold Complete Face Brush Set
Luxie Rose Gold Complete Face Brush Set   $65.00

This is said to have all the brushes to complete a full face of makeup. This set comprises of brushes for the face, eyes and lips. I’m really excited about this item. Luxie produces very high quality brushes and we have received several Luxie brushes previously with Boxycharm. I will do full review on the entire brush set soon.

Spongelle Body Wash Infused Buffer
Spongelle Body Wash Infused Buffer   $20.00

These buffers cleanse, exfoliate, massage and nourish the skin. It’s a multi-use buffer that can be used for approximately 14 times and it emits a beautiful scent.

Grande Cosmetics Grandemascara
Grande Cosmetics Grandemascara   $25.00

This mascara claims to give extreme length and volume to the lashes. It’s a water resistant formula that contains peptides, panthenols and natural wax to promote healthier lashes. It’s easy to remove therefore there is no lash breakage.

Pretty Vulgar The Powder Room Translucent Setting Powder
Pretty Vulgar The Powder Room Translucent Setting Powder   $32.00

This was a variation item and I was really hoping for this. I’ve been looking for a good loose powder and I’m really excited to try this. The packaging is really cute and appealing. It claims to lock in makeup while blurring and filling in lines and pores.

Crimes Of Beauty Wristlet
Crimes Of Beauty   $22.00

Wristlet (beauty bag) which seems to be of really high quality. It is supposed to contain a battery pack/ portable charger but it was a lithium battery pack and could not be shipped outside the US, so I had to remove the item from my box unfortunately.


So overall, I’m really happy with my Boxyluxe for December 2018. I love everything that I received except the wristlet. I think $22.00 could have been better spent on a beauty product, but everything else was awesome. I’m really excited and looking forward to see what surprises await in the next Boxyluxe

If you aren’t a Boxycharm subscriber and you want in on these fabulous products I will leave a link down below or you can check out the Boxycharm website.


I hope you enjoyed this unboxing , over the next few days I will be posting regularly so do be on the lookout for these posts. Have a fantastic day and I’ll talk to you guys tomorrow! 😉
