Allure Beauty Box Review – August 2016


Allure Beauty Box is a monthly beauty subscription from Allure magazine. Each box includes 4-6 deluxe and full size beauty and makeup products chosen by Allure’s beauty editors.

Cost: $15/monthly


Each box includes a mini-magazine that details each product.


Freeze 24-7 Anti-Aging Eye Serum ($52.90): Incredible value on this sample! This serum reduces puffiness and fine lines. I actually own another sample tube of this serum so I have passed this one on to my Mom.


Pur-Lisse Blue Lotus Balancing Moisturizer ($16): Another great value! I love Pur-Lisse products so I am happy to receive this. I  think I already own this one as well. It leaves skin soft and glowing without any residue or greasiness.


Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50 ($4.12): I own this as well! This is a setting spray that mattifies skin. I love that it also includes an SPF. It’s also really refreshing and cool on hot summer days. One warning on this product: When you spray on your face, be careful to not accidentally spray any on your hair. I did get some in my hair and it left it feeling sticky.


Mally Mattewind Eye Brightener ($25): This is a dual pencil that includes a pencil and a shadow brush. I thought this was eyeliner at first! The pencil is peachy-white and is meant to be used around your eyes to help brighten them and make you look more awake!


Cargo Swimmables Eye Pencil in Pebble Beach ($12.60): I like that this shade is a deep brown but it’s not black. This will be a much better shade for work or every day wear. It’s supposed to be waterproof so I’m hoping that means it will stay in place all day.


Wet Brush Midi Brush ($8.99): Subscribers received this brush in either blue or silver. It’s a small, compact brush which I like. I usually use a wide tooth comb when my hair is wet but this brush is designed to be used on wet hair without damaging or breaking your strands. So far I have used this only on my dry hair but it does not pull my hair at all.

Verdict: The value of this boz is $119.61 which is mind-blowing! At first, I was not really excited with this box but after looking over the products again, I have to say this is one of the best Allure boxes this year for me. A lot of the products were repeats for me but that’s ok because they are products I love! I think my favorite find this month is the brush! My hair tangles so easily so I love the idea of a brush that does not break or damage my hair!
