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.
My April Allure Beauty Box shipped via USPS. It was super delayed this month (at least compared to when I normally get it) and I am not too sure why. At least I wasn’t until I started checking out the box more.
The April 2016 Allure Beauty Box theme was “Up Close and Personal” and included the following:
~DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer (0.5oz) ($25): This is designed to minimize your fine lines and pores instantly. I tried it as soon as I opened the box and you know what, I think it did make my pores a little smaller. I may be picking up a full-size of this down the road.
~Mally Beauty High-Shine Liquid Lipstick (Mama Bean) (~$6): According to the information card I should have received a Mally Evercolor Shaping Lip Pencil ($9 value). Instead, I received a Mally Beauty High-Shine Liquid Lipstick, which we actually received from Allure last November as well (this sample is smaller though). I actually prefer this to the lip pencil, however, I wish they would have e-mailed or added a note in here about the swap. I am wondering if this is why my box was delayed? Maybe they ran out of product and had to wait to ship until they found a substitution?
~L’Occitane Cleansing And Softening Shower Oil With Almond Oil (2.5oz) ($9.50): This smells amazing (I love the smell of almonds) and really that’s all I look for in a shower gel. It leaves my skin feeling soft – but not oily too.
~Fekkai Glossing Creme Styling Creme (2oz) ($8): I used to buy this all the time, but with subscription boxes I don’t need to buy hair products as much as I used to. It doesn’t weigh my hair down and leaves it glossy and tames all my flyaways too. Good stuff.
~Bvlgari Goldea Perfume (5mL) ($11.20): This has notes of orange blossom, ylang-ylang, jasmine and patchouli. It’s too heavy for me, but this little bottle is awesome. Getting perfume samples in mini versions of full-sized bottles is the best.
~L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Original (Full-Size) ($5.60): I have so many mascaras going (aka open) right now that I have to pass this on to a friend. L’Oreal is a great drugstore brand mascara though so this is a win.
All totaled I came up with a value of $65.30 for the April 2016 Allure Beauty Box. Even with the substitution and shipping delay I love this box. I am always impressed with the value and quality of Allure Beauty Boxes and this month is no exception.
