Haul Post: Allure Beauty Box

by 2 January 11, 2016

Happy Monday, luvvies! In this haul post, I want to share (in detail!) one of my favorite gifts with you: the Allure Beauty Box. Like many of the exceedingly popular subscription beauty boxes, the Allure Beauty Box contains deluxe-sized samples of new and award-wining beauty and skincare products. The beauty (ha, pun intended) of a subscription service like this is that you get to try these sometimes expensive products out, then decide if you want to buy the full-size bottle/tube. Plus, who doesn't luvv getting mail that isn't bills or Bed, Bath, & Beyond spam? Allure beauty box (4) text This is my first experience with a subscription beauty box, but after browsing through options for months (Birchbox, Ipsy, etc.), I am more than impressed with the offerings in the Allure Beauty Box. Not only are the products ahhh-mazing, but three of the seven are full-sized! Let's open her up!   Allure beauty box (8) numbered 1) Mally Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Liner in "Black Navy:" According to the mini-mag inside the beauty box, this liner is a 12-hour gel liner from the QVC brand, Mally. Not only is the formula super creamy and smooth, but this pencil also includes a small brush on the other end, making it easier than ever to create a beautiful blended look. (And it totally matches my nails.) Luvv it! Allure beauty box (19) 2) Trust Fund Beauty polish in "Champagne Problems:" This is a new brand for me, which makes it even more exciting! I love the glittery, golden glamour of this nail polish (we're all into metallics these days, right?). Read more about this product -- or order some for yourself -- right here. Allure beauty box (18) 3) Erno Laszlo Transphuse Eye Refiner: Now we're getting into the really good stuff, luvvies. This eye serum from Erno Laszlo is nothing short of incredible (which is probably why it's normally priced at $105 for just half an ounce). The tiniest smudge of this eye refiner tightens sagging eye skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eye. If you're interested in immediate results AND lasting effects, read more about this serum here. Allure beauty box (13) 4) Schmidt's Natural Deodorant in Lavender + Sage: I know what you're thinking: natural deodorant?? Normally I would join you in doubting something that asks you to rub the deodorant on with your fingers (yes, for real), but this powder-cream deodorant really lives up to its claims. According to the included mini-mag, "This is the natural deodorant for people who don't like natural deodorant... because it works." You have baking soda (which fights odor) and arrowroot powder (which absorbs wetness) on your side. Allure beauty box (15) 5) Derma E Hydrating Night Creme: Oh luvvies. This thick face lotion from Derma E is the real deal. It's the perfect viscosity for a night cream: not too wet, not too heavy, still completely breathable. Is the winter weather leaving your skin dry and irritated? Read more about this wonder-worker here. Allure beauty box (11) 6) Skinn Cosmetics Caviar Lip Cream in "Ruby:" Ok, red lip luvvies. This one's for you. And me too, because I'm in luvv with this candy apple red lip gloss. Actually, I hate to call it a lip gloss because it is so much more than that: it wears like a beautiful creamy matte lip, but with the moisturizing effects of a balm. You're going to want this one.  Allure beauty box (23) 7) DHC Deep Cleansing Oil: Our final beauty box product is the key to taking it all off, with flair. This cleansing oil is pretty incredible: you apply it onto your dry face with dry hands, then allow the oil to gently bond to your makeup and debris. Rinsing with water emulsifies the oil and leaves your skin genuinely clean and purified. Once you've tried cleansing with this dreamy oil, it will be hard to go back to your Olay soap. Get it here. Allure beauty box (16) The Allure Beauty Box allows you to try products from all types of innovative brands without dropping the cash on the full-sized product; and as you can see from today's haul post, the subscription is well worth the $15/ per month it costs. I am so grateful for this gift and I am so grateful to be able to share it with all of you. Have any of you tried a subscription box? We'd luvv to hear about your experiences, too! Have a great week, katie-sig
