The Allure Beauty Box includes five or more deluxe sized beauty products every month. Boxes are curated by the editors of Allure magazine and also include a special-edition “mini magazine” chock full of the most trusted product reviews you’ve come to expect from Allure. July was the first month after the switch from “Allure Sample Society” to the “Allure Beauty Box”. Honestly had I not previously known about the change I never would have noticed anything different about this box.
The Allure Beauty Box ships via USPS and took just a few days to arrive.
This month’s box was jam packed full of goodies! The new Allure Beauty Box was off to a great start!
The July 2015 Allure Beauty Box included the following items to help make your summer a little easier:
~Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Heat/UV Protective Primer ($4.50): The scent of this isn’t overly strong, but I really like it. This spray helps protect your hair from heat / UV damage. You can spray it on dry hair, but as it says in the information card (and as I found out for myself) it might make your hair look greasy. Next time I will use it on damp hair.
~Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF50 ($6): This is a setting spray that helps to seal or set your makeup and basically make sure it doesn’t melt off on those hot summer days. I love this. It’s got SPF so it’s ideal for summer. If you don’t wear a moisturizer with SPF or if you don’t want to mess up your makeup by rubbing sunscreen in, this is for you. Awesome!
~Oscar Blandi Pronto Invisible Volumizing Dry Shampoo Spray ($11): Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo has been in tons of subscription boxes over the years, but I never tire of it. It’s just a fantastic product. Like it says on the package it doesn’t leave any white residue in your hair like some dry shampoos do. It also smells great and it works. It really works. You can press snooze and stay in bed for those extra few minutes knowing you have this handy!
~Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Synchronized Complex II ($18.20): This serum helps with basically any eye issue you could have – puffiness, wrinkles, dark circles, dryness and unevenness. I haven’t seen any changes with wrinkles or dark circles yet, but I did think it helped with puffiness and dryness. It’s super lightweight and didn’t feel greasy at all.
~Invisibobble ($8): I love the invisibobble! It’s seriously like a phone cord (remember when phones had cord). The information card says it needs only two loops to get any kind of hold, but I needed three to really make it stay in my hair. I am basically obsessed with it though. It doesn’t leave marks in your hair and my hair didn’t get all tangled in it like it does with most (all?) other hair ties.
~Estee Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Daring Length + Volume Mascara in Black (~$10): For me mascaras are all about the brush. The brush on this one is plastic which helps makes lashes not clump. I love it. It didn’t irritate my eyes and I didn’t feel the need to constantly rub my eyes like I do with a lot of mascaras. I may actually get a the full size of this!
All totaled I came up with a value of $57.70 for the July 2015 Allure Beauty Box. I loved this box. I can only hope that the boxes will be this fabulous going forward. For $15 this was a great value and was beyond worth it!
