Allure Beauty Box
Ships To: Continental US.
Coupon Code: N/A
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 September 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.
I just love opening Allure Beauty Box!
The September 2016 Allure Beauty Box theme was “Speed Dating” and included the following items:
~Pur~lisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Cleansing Milk (30mL) ($7.20): Pur~lisse is a great brand, but it’s been in so many boxes that I don’t get too excited about it anymore. This cleanser removes makeup, oil and dirt. It can be used as a cleanser in the am or you can use it to remove makeup at night. It doesn’t smell like much and works well for traveling (no need to pack both a makeup remover and a cleanser when you can use this).
~Supergoop Shine On Lip Screen SPF 50 (1.5mL) ($8.25): Okay, I love this lip screen (it can be worn alone or over lipstick). It’s clear and glossy and will protect your lips from the sun. However, this sample is so tiny! Plus, mine left like it was only half full? I doubt it will last me more than a few days (full disclosure – I use lip balm / gloss like a manaic).
~Eau Thermale Avene PhysioLift Eyes (2mL) ($5.86): This is a wrinkle smoothing eye treatment. I have used it in the past and love it for puffiness. A little goes a long way and it feels so good going on.
~GrandePrimer (No Size on Package) (~$5): The information card indicated that the box would include GrandeMascara, but I received GrandePrimer. It’s designed to boost your natural lashes while immediately improving lash appearance. You use it under mascara (not alone unless you want white lashes) which I found a little awkward. It felt a little sticky and my mascara didn’t glide on. Maybe I didn’t let it dry long enough?
~Orly Breathable Treatment + Color Nail Polish in Beauty Essential ($8.99): There were a variety of colors sent out (10 I believe), but I received “Beauty Essential” which is a red / coral creme. You guys. This polisj is amazing. I used ONE coat and my nails look amazing (well, they will once I clean up the edges). I am blown away by this. It’s the best polish I have found in a while.
~Bulgari Omnia Coral (5mL) ($8.25): This perfume has notes of Bergamot, Goji Berries, Hibiscus Flower, Water Lily, Pomegranate and Cedarwood. I picked up more fruity than floral and really enjoyed this scent. As much as I liked this scent though, the bottle is even better. Isn’t it gorgeous? Opening it is a tad tricky (there are instructions on the inside of the box), so be careful. It’s important to make sure you know which end is up (there is a small flat part on the bottom) and then hold the clear glass part and pull up on the decorative top part. It’s an open bottle (there isn’t a sprayer) so you want to make sure not to spill.
All totaled the September 2016 Allure Beauty Box had a value of $37.69. That’s not a “wow” value for them by any means, but I am just so excited by this amazing nail polish discovery!
