August 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.

Allure Beauty Box

Contents of box with approximate retail value.

1 oz. Malin + Goetz Peppermint Shampoo. Value = $2.50

.265 Nuance Salma Hayek AM/PM Anti-Aging Super Cream. Value = $3.77

.5 oz. Bumble and Bumble Grooming Creme. Value = $3.00

.003 oz. Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner. Value = $1.85

mini Butter London nail polish in Violet Revenge Value = $7.50

1.69 oz. Eau Thermale Avéne Cleanance Gel Cleanser. Value = $5.00

The total value of this box is $23.62. This isn't a super high value but with the exception of the push-up liner I will use everything in the box. I tried the push-up liner before and it was way too difficult to use. I think it's because it's a sample size and too small to get a handle on. I'm excited about the peppermint shampoo, I love the way minty stuff feels on my scalp. The cleanser is a good travel size. I have a full size version that I haven't tried yet which I can use to refill this bottle. 

Verdict: This box was a good box for me.
