Allure Beauty Box May 2014

IMG_1026

This is my FIRST Allure Beauty Box….I have always seen them but have never made it in time to actually get it! They sell out in SECONDS!

Anyways, I am an Allure Beauty Enthusiast and they offered their community members the opportunity to buy the next 3 boxes for 199 plus tax…. this was a pretty great deal (okay, some people didn’t think it was because it ended up costing about the same) since it ensured I didn’t have to worry about accessing and purchasing the boxes each season from the website. I am the kinda girl who will pay a little extra for the joy of convenience.

 

But since this was my first box, boy, was I excited! Now this is usually a mix of drugstore and speciality store products… with the majority being lower end priced products. All in all, a pretty good mix though.

Softsoap Sea Kissed Exfoliating Body Wash and Dove Purely Pampering Body Wash.

I am not a big drugstore body wash person, I tend to lean towards luxury brands because the scents are so enticing compared to like green apple and fresh mountain scents but that doesn’t mean that if I get drugstore body washes I won’t use them! I think these’ll do me just fine and I can probably get behind the Dove and maybe the Softsoap one will pleasantly surprise me!

So many hair products! I kid you not, I have like 3 full size hairsprays here! I don’t know if I will ever use them all but heck, I can sure try?!

This mix of hair products includes hairspray, dry conditioner, thermal cream, paste, argan oil serum, renewal hair treatment, and an anti aging treatment. I will not be using the not your mother’s and developlus products because my hair does not neat any sort of renewal treatment or anti aging treatment since it is really healthy. I will use the heat serums and products though for when I blow dry… you know, to keep these healthy locks, extra healthy. I am extra excited for the Rusk and Big Sexy Hair hairsprays!

Here are the cosmetic products now! Rimmel and Tarte mascaras, Revlon and Cargo glosses, and an IT Cosmetics CC cream. Just from my memory, this feels like it is less cosmetics than normal. But then again, what do I know? This is my first box! I am excited to have another Tarte mascara and to try the IT Cosmetics CC Cream. I also am a pretty avid user of the Revlon sticks so they’ve already won my hear there.

Finally, body and nail products. So, I got what I thought was everything out of the box and then looked at the listed products and realized I was missing a Flower nail polish so I had to dig through the box and eventually found it! So excited to since, for a drugstore brand, I do really like what they offer (omg cheapest and best brow filler pencil EVER!) The polish formulas are here and there…some are great, and some are terrible but I am not a chemist so I don’t know if it depends on color, blend, batch, whatever. anyways, this stuff happens with good polishes too, I’ve had my bad selection of Julep even!

Anyways, I am excited for that amazing Sally Hansen metallic color and you can never go wrong with an extra top coat!

I am DYING over the Rembrandt paste. Boy, do I love a good whitening product!

I will probably not be using the Tan towels, I have used tanning things and failed miserably and just try to avoid them at all costs..so this will get gifted and it will be loved by someone who knows how to use them. But other than that, I am SO EXCITED for the sunscreen (I know, a little strange..) The cleansing cloths and the moisturizer…even though I have a few I need to use up first.

Overall, I am a big fan and don’t know if I can go back to ignorant bliss of missing these boxes and just thinking… “Oh well, there’s always next time” From now on, I can’t see myself going on without scoring these boxes… I am a dedicated believer and really do hope that they have a GREAT response to this package deal and keep offering them …. to enthusiasts only of course!…can’t run the risk of these packages selling out either 😉

 

What Item are you looking forward to the most?
