July Allure Beauty Box

The Allure Sample Society beauty box is a monthly service for beauty products that promises 5 fresh deluxe sized samples from luxury brands designed for multiple uses. The cost for this subscription is $15.00 a month with shipping included.

Price: $15.00 a month with no option to skip.

The good:

The samples: You get deluxe sized samples from luxury brands.   

Magazine: You get a free 12 month subscription to Allure magazine.  If you already subscribe they will extend your subscription and if you don't want it you can mail in a form for a refund on the value ($12)

Coupon: They send you a coupon with each box for $15 off a $50 purchase. The catch is your order has to include at least one item from a brand you received that month.  It doesn't have to be the item you received just the same brand.

Referrals: It's a win/win. You get a $5 credit on your account or you can donate that to charity and the person you refer gets a 20% discount on their first purchase at Beauty Bar. 

The not so good:

Skip a month: There is no option to skip a month, only cancel.

July Allure Beauty Box

Contents of box with approximate retail value.

1 oz. Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil. Value = $4.50

.5 oz. Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF50. Value = $6.00

.14 oz. Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum. Value = $18.31

1.4 oz. Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo. Value = $11.00

Invisibobble Hair Tie. Value = $2.67

.15 Estée Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Daring Mascara Value = $7.81

The total value of this box is $50.29. This box was ok. I wish I used dry shampoo because I have a ton of it right now. I like Bumble and Bumble products but haven't tried the invisible oil. I'm super excited about the travel size setting mist. Now I reapply sunscreen without messing up my makeup. I wonder if I can leave this in my car or will it explode in the boiling temps or northern California. I love the invisibobble thing but I think my hair is too short for it. Sad face. More mascara, oh boy. ha ha 

Verdict: This box was pretty good. I'm happy about the supergoop and bumble and bumble

  1. I love the invisibobble hair thingy. Mine was bright pink though and I find it hard to wear that color for work. I'd be willing to trade you for them.
