Allure Beauty Box March 2016 Subscription Box Review

The March 2016 Allure Beauty Box theme was “Talking Dirty” and included the following purification treatments:

~DP Hue ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse) (1oz) ($4.12): I know people swear by apple cider vinegar for their hair, but I have never tried it myself.  This rinse gently removes buildup from hair without stripping away its natural oils. It doesn’t smell good, but it works! My hair was clean and SO shiny! I am not 100% sure how often this is supposed to be used (once ever other week sounds reasonable), but I am adding it to my must-have product list.

~Macadamia Professional Ultra Rich Moisture Cleansing Conditioner (2fl.oz) ($7.58): This is a “cleansing conditioner” and it works to gently remove buildup while softening and defrizzing.  My hair isn’t exactly fine, but it’s not super thick either and that is the type of hair this was designed for.  I think I will pass this along to one of my curly-haired cousins.

~Julep Konjac Cleansing Face Sponge ($12): I was so excited when I heard there was going to be a Julep konjac sponge in this month’s box.  They last for 3-months (although I tend to toss mine sooner) and can be used alone to exfoliate or with your normal cleanser. I use it with my cleanser and love how soft it makes my face feel.  My only issue with this is storage.  How do you store your konjac sponges?

~Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder (1g / 0.035oz) ($4.12): This powder sets your makeup and gives it a matte look.  It looks white, but goes on transulcent. You don’t need a ton of this to work either.  A little goes a long way.

~Nunzio Saviano Anti-Frizz Sheets ($3): I didn’t even know anti-frizz sheets for your existed.  I like the idea of it for those times when you don’t want to use any more products in your hair, but I don’t know if it’s something I would personally go purchase on my own. They do work though.

~Cargo Blush (Catalina) (0.0525oz) ($4.27) / Cargo Bronzer (Medium) (0.0525oz) ($4.91) Duo: Totally love!  It’s a bronzer / blush in one.  Both colors are very wearable and I love that they did a duo and not just one or the other.  This will be a great addition to my overnight / travel bag.
Allure Beauty Box March 2016 Subscription Box Review
~L’Oreal Pro-Last Lipcolor (Full-Size) ($12.99): The last item in the box was a bonus item from L’Oreal.  It’s a balm and lip color in one. You apply the color and then use the balm to lock it in and leave your lips feeling super moisturized. I am going to look for this at the store and see what the other shades look like in person because I really liked it.
Allure Beauty Box March 2016 Subscription Box ReviewAll totaled I came up with a value of $52.99 for the March 2016 Allure Beauty Box. Once again Allure knocked it out of the park.  I absolutely love their boxes and think they do an incredible job for the cost!

    Instead of an apple cider vinegar rinse, I use light beer. I know that sounds weird, but it works just as well! I do it sometimes once a week, sometimes once every other. My hair has been so much shinier, softer, and easier to manage since I started and I’ve been doing it for over a year now. It’s helped improve split ends, too! Pro tip: Do not take a beer from the fridge. Have it sit out and get room temperature first. I made that mistake the first time. Although, pouring a cold beer over your head in the shower sure wakes you up! XD Also, do not get it in your eyes. That hurts really bad. :/

    Do you know if there’s any way to get the March box? Dying to try those anti-frizz hair sheets! Hair static is the bane of my existence ?

      I don’t believe so? I think the cut-off is around the 22nd / 23rd or the previous month?

    I use the included suction cup on the bottom of my medicine cabinet to hang my konjac sponge for storage. It dries out, but I just rehydrate it in a cup before use.

    No vacay plans. Just more school work and planning my youngest sweet sixteen.

    Ooh I like the color of lipstick you got. What is it called or it’s number? I got #107 Violet Parfait. It goes on darker than it appears in the tube. It’s a nice color, just a little too dark for my taste. Looks very similar to the dark colors that are on the runway right now.

    1. Jennifer

      It’s #109 – Toujour Teaberry. I’d call it more of a mauve though??
