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 July Allure Beauty Box shipped via USPS. There really is no rhyme or reason as to when they ship during the month. Sometimes mine arrives the first few days of the month, sometimes it’s mid-month (like this month) and other months I don’t receive it until the last day of the month.
The July 2016 Allure Beauty Box theme was “On the Hunt” and included the following items:
~Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II (0.24fl.oz) ($14.88): This peach colored serum reduces the appearance of wrinkles, hydrates and brightens. It didn’t leave my face oily or slippery. It soaked in quickly and left it feeling soft and smooth. It takes a few weeks for the wrinkle-fighting ingredients to start working their magic, but, for now, I am really happy with the way it’s making my skin feel.
~GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Treatment (.3oz) ($17): This is an acne-fighting facial mask for combination skin. That’s totally me! GlamGlow is one of my favorite items to get in a subscription box. It unclogs pores and also helps to clear up and prevent breakouts. The smell isn’t my favorite (it’s a eucalyptus scent), but it’s not awful either. Over, this is fantastic and I am going to end up buying the full-size of this.
~Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Super Strawberry ($5.67): I can’t find a size on this, so I am estimating it to be 1/3 of a full-size chubby stick. It might even be 1/2 of the full-size. This is a cross between a lip crayon and a lip balm. It’s sheer, but still gives you a bit of color and while it’s moisturizing, it’s not quite as moisturizing as a balm. But when you just need that hint of color on the go, this is where it’s at.
~La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream (.11oz) ($18.70): La Mer in a subscription box has me like ! This facial moisturizer is supposed to deeply hydrate skin without making it feel slick. It smells a little powdery and I found that a little goes a long way. I will use every single last bit of this!
~Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer (0.25fl.oz) ($8): This is a primer for foundation and concealer that doesn’t clog your pores. I like moisturizer + this + bb cream. It might not work for everyone, but I have found that it works well for me.
~Nordstrom Sale Details: This month’s box was a collaboration of sorts with the folks at Nordstrom. The booklet included a few #nsale sneak peeks including some gift with purchase offers, sale information and a calendar showing what beauty events are happening at Nordies during the sale. There is a great GlamGlow deal that I will be taking advantage of.
~Allure Beauty Box Exclusive: Nordstrom is also giving all Allure Beauty Box subscribers a FREE Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Cushion Compact SPF 35 just for stopping by the Bobbi Brown counter at any Nordstrom before August 16th. It doesn’t say what size it is, but I will be sure to update once I go snag mine.
All totaled I came up with a value of $64.25 for the July 2016 Allure Beauty Box. The value was incredible and this box was amazing. I loved the collaboration with Nordstrom!
