I am in love with this month’s Allure Beauty Box. Sure, they are not full size products but I look at is as an opportunity to try new things without the excessive cost AND to stock up my travel bag!!! This month Allure featured some things I already loved and some things I was dying to try that were on my wish list! It was a total WIN!!!
Sunday Riley Ice Ceramide Moisturizing Cream (wish list item)
M-61 PowerGlow Peel (wish list item)
Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream (LOVE IT!!! Now I have a small tub for travel)!
ModelCo Metallic Eyeshadow Trio in St. Tropez AND Eyelites in Granite (an eyeshadow and a liquid cream shadow)
Kneipp Mineral Bath Salt in Dream Away (Awesome! Smells fantastic and makes your skin silky smooth and is so relaxing).
Lumify Eye drops (the best eye drops that exist).
If you don’t subscribe to Allure Beauty Box, you are truly missing out on some great finds each month! It’s one of my favorite subscriptions because of variety and volume and the price is just right!
I know I’m running behind but it’s been trial and error setting up all the social media connections to go with this site, so I very much appreciate your patience!
September’s Allure Beauty Box included:
Ciate London Dewy Stick. I’m was excited to try this and it was great. It created a subtle “dew” look. I’m not a huge fan of makeup sticks but this will work nice when traveling and space is at a premium.
NatureLab Perfect Smooth shampoo and conditioner. I really liked the citrusy smell of these products but I was not impressed with the conditioning power of the conditioner. It took almost the whole bottle to feel like my hair was properly covered. I would probably not buy it in the store.
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dolce Vita – I have come to really love NARS. I never would have thought to try them but every time I receive a trial, I am impressed. This lip pencil went on smooth and not clumpy and created an evenly distributed line to my lower and upper lip. I was able to blend it with one of my favorite lip glosses and it created quite a stunning look. When your husband says your mouth looks different in a very good way, a girl definitely pays attention! I will look into purchasing more NARS products.
Acure Brightening Facial Scrub – I have not tried this yet. I’m nervous trying new face products as my skin is sensitive and I’m prone to breakouts. I will give this a go once I have the chance to do more research.
La Roche-Posay Lipikar Eczema Soothing Relief Cream – I do not have Eczema but I know someone who does so I had them try this and it was a hit. So much so that a full size was purchased. It was not greasy and calmed the flare up better than expected. The smell was overwhelmingly medicinal either, so that was a plus!
Nutrafol Hair Wellness from Within capsules came as a bonus. While they seem great, I already take Sugar Bear Hair supplements and they have been amazing. With Sugar Bear Hair I take 2 supplements but these capsules require 4 for the serving size and that’s more than I want to take. It’s a seven day supply that I will set aside for as a giveaway.
