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 August 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 August 2016 Allure Beauty Box theme was “Wake Up Call” and included the following items:
~Freeze 24*7 Anti-Aging Eye Serum (7mL / 0.23fl.oz) ($52.90): This “groundbreaking” serum is designed to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness. The value is incredible and this stuff does work (it was in a BOXYCHARM a few months ago). It will smooth out your under eye area for a few hours and then, over time, reduces puffiness and softens lines.
~pur-lisse Blue Lotus Balancing Moisturizer (15mL) ($20): This is a lightweight lotion for normal, dry and sensitive skin types. It’s very thin and smells a bit floral. It’s not greasy or oily, but also did the job nicely.
~Supergoop!® Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50 (15ml) ($6): This was in my Birchbox last month and I loved it. I’m not done with mine yet so I am going to pass this one on to a friend. It “sets” your makeup in place while also minimizing shine. The best part though is the built in SPF. If you forget to put it on in the morning and then realize you need it, this is what you need.
~Mally Mattewand Eye Brightener (Matte Light) (Full-Size) ($25): This is a dual-ended pencil and shadow brush in one. It helps brighten your eyes after a late night. It’s easy to use and is total quick fix. It won’t make you feel less tired, but it’ll make you look less tired.
~Cargo Swimmables Eye Pencil in Pebble Beach (0.028oz) ($12.60): This is billed as an eyeliner, but it’s a fairly thick pencil, so you could probably get away with it making it work as a shadow too. Just don’t wait too long to blend because it “sets” quickly.
~Wet Brush Midi Brush ($8.99): Wet brushes are amazing! I have one that I use every day. I don’t know how long you are supposed to keep brushes for, but I am probably past the limit with my old one. It has long plastic bristles and easily untangles hair.
~Bonus Item: Garnier Whole Blends Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner (Honey Treasures) (1.7fl.oz/each) (~$2): This isn’t on the information card, but the box also included these shampoo and conditioner samples. They smell good and will be perfect for traveling.
All totaled I came up with a value of $127.49 for the August 2016 Allure Beauty Box. That is an AMAZING value for a $15 box and I am, once again, blown away by this box.
