This month the ALLURE BEAUTY BOX is about the skin and a touch of color on your lips.
The box came with 5 samples and I pay $15 a month for the subscription.
I have to say that comparing with pasts months, this box is a little underwhelming. Nothing really amazing. It’s not a bad box, everything is useful, but Allure always comes with something new and exciting or a great full size product. This month, like I said is a little bit meh…the products are already well-known and there’s nothing here that you haven’t tried or heard about it for years. It feels like you are having the same samples all the time kind of feeling….
Also, in the folder that always comes with the box Allure features the Norstrom Anniversary Sale and all the Allure beauty pics, what I think it’s interesting!
1. ESTEE LAUDER ADVANCED NIGHT REPAIR SYNCHRONIZED RECOVERY COMPLEX II
I tried this sample before and it’s a really good anti-aging moisturizing serum. Within a couple of weeks you can see a better and brighter skin, with less texture and more softness. And it just get better and better with time.
2. GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD CLEARING TREATMENT
I don’t have acne but I like GlamGlow so much that I use this mask as a cleanser and it works very well. I leave on my skin for one minute and rinse and the skin just looks brighter and fresh. It can dry out the skin so a good moisturizer after is needed.
3. CLINIQUE CHUBBY STICK MOISTURIZING LIP COLOUR BALM IN SUPER STRAWBERRY
At first this looks like a dark heavy lip balm, but in fact is very sheer, smooth and moisty product. I like it a lot in the summer because just give you a tint lip and lots of hydration. Great to carry on my bag all the time!
4. LA MER THE MOISTURIZING SOFT CREAM
I’m so happy when Allure sends high-end cosmetics, because they are so expensive that we really need to try before buy it, and this is many times the only way I have to test these kind of products.
This is a nice light scented moisturizer. It feels soft in the skin, very smooth, very hydrating. The only thing is that made my skin feel a little oily, so I don’t think this is going to work if you have a really oily skin. In the heat I feel the product melting and turning into oil in my face, so it’s not really for me!
5. SMASHBOX PHOTO FINISH FOUNDATION PRIMER
I don’t know how many times I received this sample in beauty boxes. It’s a great product but it seems that when they don’t have anything else to fill the box they send you this primer. I’m tired of receiving it!
So, this being said, if you don’t know the product yet, you’re not going to be disappointed. This is a great primer for foundation that even out your skin for a foundation application. It works in any skin type, it keeps the makeup set a whole day, it’s matte, it’s light weight and one of my favorites.
Well, this was my ALLURE BEAUTY BOX of July, like a said a little underwhelming, nothing new, but everything useful.
