Allure Beauty Box Review


It's no secret...I love subscription boxes. Snail mail is the best, especially when you receive a package filled with surprises. It's like having a birthday every month! Honestly, checking the mailbox is one chore I really enjoy, is checking the mailbox a chore? Anyway back to subscription boxes... I have tried a few. Recently I decided to check out the Allure Beauty Box after discontinuing another beauty box subscription. Allure Beauty Box includes at least 5 deluxe sized products that have been chosen by the editors of Allure magazine. The box is $15 a month  but contains a value of at least $50 in products and you can cancel at any time. Beauty boxes are a great way to learn about, and try out some new products without paying retail price on something, and then figuring out the product is not what you thought.  

My first Allure Beauty Box arrived in August and contained a total of 8 products. New members receive a welcome gift. My welcome gift was a Mally Eye Shadow Stick in Autumn Shimmer. Retail price for this item is $25 so I already made my money back and some! The other 7 items included:

  •  Full size Pixi Rose Oil Blend Nourishing Face Oil valued at $24. 
  •  Full size Floss Quarts Pressed Highlighter valued at $20.
  •  Deluxe sample size of Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum full size sells for $84. This is a Korean line of skincare and makeup and their products are not cheap! The deluxe sample I receive had about 2 weeks of serum in it. The perfect amount to find out if you indeed like the product or not. I really liked this serum. It goes on like an oil but absorbs quickly into your skin and does not leave an oily residue. Instead it leaves your skin feeling smooth and soft. 
  •  Full size Erno Lazlo Exfoliate and Detox Face Bar valued at $23. This deep sea mud cleansing bar is sitting on my bathroom counter. I have been using it daily. It does not lather up and leaves a little bit of a black mess in my sink. It also stings, bad, if you get it in your eyes...careful. It's just okay, I am not really a fan of face cleansing bars. 
  •  Sample size H2O+ Hydration Sensitive Gel Cream Moisturizer full size sells for $42. I wouldn't consider this one a deluxe sample. It's pretty small and while I haven't tried it yet, it looks about no more than a weeks worth. 
  •  Deluxe sample size of Whish Botanical Primer full size sells for $44. This is a larger sample size that I think will get quite a few uses when I finally give it a try. 
  •  1 Looks and Meii  Brightening Lift Up Perfect Fit Mask valued at $3. My daughter Penelope is loving sheet masks right now so I gifted this one to her. 
Ok now for the tally....let me get out my calculator. Excluding sample sizes and including my new member gift. The total value of my Allure Beauty Box is $70! Not bad for only $15. I still haven't decided if I like this subscription box or not. I have another box that should be arriving any day now. I will share it with you and we can decide together. If you would like to check it out for yourself you can subscribe here
