Teen Vogue + Allure Back to School Box Review

The Allure Beauty Box includes five or more deluxe-sized beauty products every month. Boxes are curated by the editors of Allure magazine and include a special-edition “mini magazine” chock full of the most trusted product reviews you’ve come to expect from Allure.

This review is on the limited edition Teen Vogue + Allure Beauty Box Back to School Box. It was a one-time purchase of $39.95 and is still available for sale while supplies last.

Teen Vogue + Allure Back to School Box Review
The Teen Vogue + Allure Beauty Box Back to School Box shipped via USPS and took just about a week to arrive from the date I ordered it.

The box looks plain, but included inside are stickers so that you can decorate it however you wish.

Teen Vogue + Allure Beauty Box Back to School Box included the following items:

~Foreo LUNA Play – Sunflower Yellow ($39), Foreo Day Cleanser (15mL) ($4.50) and Foreo Night Cleanser (15mL) ($4.50): These items actually arrived in the May Allure Beauty Box, so I will likely end up giving mine to a friend (or adding them to an upcoming giveaway?).  The LUNA Play is good for 100 uses, so about 2-3 months.  I am not overly excited that this is disposable, but it’s also going to get gunky eventually and need to be tossed, so I get it.  You squeeze it to turn on, and it lightly vibrates on your face.  It’s not harsh and won’t irritate your skin. The box also included two Cleansers that can be used along with the LUNA Play.  The “Day” Cleanser is a gentle face wash that cleanses without leaving skin tight and dry.  The “Night” Cleanser is a deep cleaning face wash that cleanses skin and removes makeup. I prefer the night one because I feel like my skin is getting cleaner (it has little scrubbers in it), but both work (and smell) great.

~pur~lisse Daily Lip Nourisher (Full-Size) ($16): This is another favorite of mine!  It’s creamy and hydrating and reminds me of my beloved Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1.  You don’t need to reapply this constantly either which is key.  Although you might want to because it feels so good.

~Freeman – Feeling Beautiful Charcoal & Black Sugar Polishing Mask 0.5oz Sachet ($1.99): I love charcoal skin care products so I couldn’t wait to try this one out.  It feels like a soft sugar scrub, and I found it to be very warming on my skin.  You only need to leave it on for about 7 minutes (I like masks that don’t require a lot of commitment), and it works to absorb oil and impurities without over-drying.   I could actually feel it working.  It almost felt tingly at times?  I loved it!

~EWC Oh My Brow! Brow Highlighter Crayon ($19) & EWC Ready, Set, Brow Gel ($19): We actually got the Brow Highlighter in the July POPSUGAR Must Have Box, and my neighbor is obsessed (I gave her the one my SIL got and didn’t want).  It’s a beautiful shimmery gold color and works on your brow bone, on the inner corners of your eyes, on your cheekbones and even on your lips.  The gel shapes and holds your brows in place.  I love this.  My brows do get crazy and this is a good way to keep them in line.

~American Eagle Aerie Body Lotion (Be Sunnie) ($6.95): I didn’t even know that American Eagle had a bath and body line!  And I can’t believe I didn’t because this stuff smelled amazing.  Like incredible.  It’s a blend of sparkling citrus and sea salt and is described as “a swirl of fresh lemonade, summer flowers & ocean breezes”.  I thought it smelled a bit like apples myself?  Either way, it’s awesome. It’s also made without parabens, phthalates, gluten and isn’t tested on animals.

~It’s a 10 Haircare Miracle Leave-in Product (2oz) ($9): Who doesn’t love this stuff? It’s a 10-in-1 product that repairs dry damaged hair, adds shine, smoothes & controls frizz, seals & protects hair color, detangles, prevents split ends, stops hair breakage, creates silkiness, enhances natural body, flat iron & thermal protector.  It works (I like it best for shine, detangling and smoothing) and smells great!

~WetBrush Pop Fold ($9.99): Ohhh, I have a smaller wet brush (actually Allure just sent one this month too), but this is a larger foldable one. Perfect for traveling!  Somehow I lose combs and brushes while traveling so this is going in my travel bag and staying there.  It brushes out tangly wet hair without pulling or tugging. If you have never tried a wet brush, I totally recommend checking them out.

~Jamberry Nail Wraps (Sculpted) ($15): I JUST painted my nails this morning, but I can’t wait to get these fun marble inspired wraps on my nails.  It takes a bit of time to apply them, but using a hair dryer to soften them will make them wrap around your nail much easier.

~Stickers: I know you are supposed to decorate your box with these, but I don’t know what I would do with my box after so I am going to use them in my planner.  The silvery looking ones are letters (two three full sets) and then there are two sets of fun allure stickers.  LOVE!

Teen Vogue + Allure Back to School Box Review
All totaled I came up with a value of $144.93 for the Teen Vogue + Allure Beauty Box Back to School Box.  That is an amazing value for $39.95, and this was just an all-around fantastic box. Seriously, if you are looking for a great Back to School / Back to College gift, this would be perfect!

What do you think of the box?  If you are interested in ordering, the Teen Vogue + Allure Beauty Box Back to School Box is still available while supplies last!
