This box looked incredible. Allure Beauty Box always packs their boxes super full and provides an amazing value for the price.
The February 2016 Allure Beauty Box theme was “Winter Gold” and included the following items, referred to by Allure as “the Holy Grail of winter skin care”:
~Bvlgari Omnia Paraiba (5mL / 0.17fl.oz) ($6.33): I don’t know what I love more. The scent of this or the adorable little bottle. It’s a blend of passion fruit, bigarade orange, passion flower, gardenia, cocoa beans and vetiver. It’s amazing. And so is that little bottle. It was, however, the most difficult item to open ever. LOL. The information booklet even tells you not to feel dumb if you can’t figure it out! Be careful when you open it because it’s a dabber (i.e. it’s open and doesn’t have a sprayer) and could spill everywhere. To open it, hold the glass part of both sections of the bottle and then gently pull. The bottom has a little flat part so you should be able to tell which way to hold it.
~Hello Breath Freshener “Pink Grapefruit Mint” (.24 fl.oz / 7mL) ($3.79): This is not only cute, but it works. We had pasta for dinner the other night and this fixed garlic breath right away. Boxes will contain either Mojito Mint, tart Pink Grapefruit Mint or Supermint.
~Pur-lisse Daily Lip Moisturizer (.38oz / 11g) ($16): Based on the spoiler picture I expected this to be a serum or a small moisturizer, but a full-size lip product is even better! It doesn’t smell like anything, and it soothes rough, chapped lips instantly. It’s just straight up amazing.
~Skinfix Ultra Rich Hand Cream (1fl.oz / 30mL) ($3.33): This stuff is THICK, but it works like a charm. I have been applying tons of lotion lately and nothing seems to be doing the trick. This stuff did though, and I didn’t feel like I needed to reapply after 15 minutes. It’s unscented and contains coconut & sunflower oil, aloe, rice-bran extract and vitamin E. All of the ingredients are all-natural and paraben free.
~Kevin Murphy Hydrate-Me. Wash (40mL) ($5.20) and Hydrate-Me.Rinse ($5.20): The information booklet says this smells “sweet and a little tart, like lemon cake”. I am not sure which I picked up from it, but it wasn’t lemon. I did think my hair felt extra soft from these though, and I will happily use my entire samples.
~Lancôme Visionnaire Nuit Beauty Sleep Perfector Advances Multi-Correcting Gel-in-Oil (3mL / .101oz) ($5.23): This is “gel-in-oil” which to me felt like a combination of a serum and a gel. It has the consistency of a gel but felt like a smooth serum going on. I kind of love it. It really did make my skin look glowing and has a nice (very light) floral scent.
All totaled I came up with a value of $45.08 for the February 2016 Allure Beauty Box. Believe it or not, that’s not even a huge value for an Allure box! I absolutely loved this box (and all their boxes) and thought they knocked it out of the park once again!
