Teen Boxie is a brand new subscription box who wanted to created a box for teens 12+, every month you get at least 9 makeup, fashion, stationery and lifestyle items! you will never receive the same product twice. There will be a mixture of known brands as well as unknown brands in the box which is great, plus a handy card which tells you what is inside the box. This box is £19.95 per month and will contain a value of at least £40 each month.
I had a chance to review a pre launch box which I couldn’t resist as I wanted to see what would be inside, I have an 11 year old daughter who is helping me with her thoughts too seeing as this box is aimed at teens.
What is inside the pre launch box:
Tanya Burr Lip Gloss – I really loved this lip gloss and have had tanya burr lipsticks in the past that I find are good to use. This is a non sticky gloss that feel soft and silky when wearing it, you do have to re apply the colour during the day but it is a gloss and not a lipstick. Perfect colour for summer in the day or evening this fits the box well and my daughter love this lip gloss too. Verdict 8/10.
Royal Lashed Out Eyelash Curlers – I have a few curlers and these seem really nice and easy to use, I think most teens would appreciate these in the box as there is mascara too, so give yourself those lovely long lashes and enjoy the summer. Verdict 8/10.
W7 Beat It Eyeshadow Palette – I can tell you now that I didn’t let my daughter “play” with this and I have kept this for myself haha! I have never had a W7 palette before but these eyeshadows are gorgeous colours for day and evening wear. They last a good while but I find by the evening you need a little top up for the darker colours, there is matte colours and some metallic ones which gives a good range of eyeshadows. Verdict 9/10.
Tinc Mobile Phone Holder & Cloud Keyring – I saw these bright pink items in the box and pulled out a fantastic mobile phone holder with a clip which is so handy as teenagers are always losing their phones! The cute keyring was taken by my daughter straight away to hang on her pin board as she said it’s so cute. Verdict 9/10.
Sass & Belle Postcard, trinket dish & Heart Decoration – My daughter has all 3 of these items, she is giving the postcard to her friend at school and has kept the other 2 items for her bedroom, she said she loves these and they are very pretty with the friends quotes. I have to admit Sass & Belle make awesome little hanging decorations and dishes on their website. Verdict 10/10.
Covershoot Mascara – This brand is one I haven’t tried before but it’s quite a nice mascara for a teen to use as it has an easy wand and great coverage. I personally have my own favourite mascaras and I would have to try this a few more times before I could really say if I liked it or not but I didn’t hate it. Applying this to your lashes and then using the curlers will give you the longer lash look. Verdict 7/10.
W7 King Kohl Eyeliner Pencil – I might not be popular with this but I prefer eyeliner pen to pencil! I find it not only easier to use but I get a darker colour, pencils are nice for a really smokey eye look which I can never pull off. I love how a pencil and a pen are both included so you can decide for yourself what you prefer. Verdict 8/10.
Royal Lashed Out Eyeliner Pen – This will be perfect to use for your dramatic eyes as this lines quite nicely so that you can have a perfect winged eye. I love how a pen is included too as most teens would be happy to practice their eyeliner skills. Verdict 8/10.
Saffron Natural False Eyelashes – These lashes look gorgeous and come with glue included so you can have them ready for your night out, pair these with your eyeliner pen for a dramatic eye look. I haven’t used these yet as I don’t wear lashes much but a lot of teens want to try lashes out to experiment with. Verdict 7/10.
I have really enjoyed this box and I cannot believe there was 12 products inside! I love the mixture of lifestyle and makeup which makes this box really enjoyable to receive. Pam the owner of Teen Boxie is a lovely person and will answer any query you have really quickly, I love the instagram page which is full of gorgeous inspirational quotes…Pam has created this confidence in a box.
This May box is worth £47.80 which is fantastic considering the box is £19.95 plus p&p per month, there is also 3,6 & 12 month subscriptions, and if you use the discount code BOXIE0517 you can have 10% 0ff your first Teen Boxie. I cannot wait to see what will be inside the first box.
Thanks for reading.
