This post is dedicated to my Indian fellow bloggers or Indian readers.Subscription boxes are fun and sometimes great value for money.I really like the idea of subscription box.So I decided to give try to USA’s most happening subscription box Boxycharm.To those who do not know what boxycharm is,it is a 21 dollar monthly subscription with 4 to 5 full size products from some great brands.It includes mainly makeup products ,tools and sometimes skincare.It is majorly a makeup box.Boxycharm does not offer Internationl shipping.
How to get in India?
You can get Boxycharm from some insta sellers.Not all but some insta sellers take order for Boxycharm and they charge from 2600 to 3000 rs.It depends on them every seller has his/her own pricing.So it is very expensive if you purchase from them.Another way to get it is that you can take the service of courier forwarding companies and get your box at your door step.I used this method to get my box.
I took the service from Ship Out From USA.These companies receive courier from the vendor who do not provide International shipping on their address and deals with all the customs and send your courier to your door step and in return charge some amount .
Initially,I was hesitant to use this because I do not have any idea about their charges and mode of operation .But there is no other way to get Boxycharm as they do not ship globally.I decided to give it a try and signed up on their website.After signing up I was given a US and Uk address .I have to fill in the given address on the vendor’s website at the time of order.
So ,signed up for Boxycharm on November 2017 but I was on waitlist.On December 2017 I got off the waitlist and ordered my first Boxycharm. I paid through my International Debit card.I do not have credit card.The payment was smooth and fuss free.
Shipping charges and customs
Ship out from USA charge on the basis of the weight of the courier.Normally Boxycharm boxes are less than 1 lb .They charge Rs 756 and additional 240 rupees as custom charges.So I have to pay under Rs 1000 every time to get boxycharm in India .Once the courier reach their USA warehouse.They send an email stating the amount to be paid.We have to make payment on their website and after all the payments are clear ,the courier is delivered at your local address.The custom charges have to be deposited via NEFT on the bank details given.So,you have to transfer custom charges to their bank account and other charges on their website.
So in a nutshell,Boxycharm costs me around 2300 rupees (1300 for the box and 1000 shipping charges) when I used Ship out from USA .It took around 20 days to deliver the box to my mail after it reaches USA address.The whole process takes around one month from the date of order.
I think Boxycharm is worth the price because you get over 100 dollars products from some great brands.If you want to try brands like tarte,ofra.becca,colourpop,dr brandt,pretty vulgar,PUR cosmetics etc it is an amazing way to get them.It is also a nice way to collect makeup if you love to try new products and brands.I know it is not affordable for students and girls with limited pocket money.But I thought of sharing my experience for people who want to try this box and can pay.
