September 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.

September Allure Beauty Box.

Contents of box with approximate retail value.

.10 oz. Kaplan MD Cellular Rejuvenate Concentrate. Value = $17.00

.13 oz. Soap & Glory Pillow Plump XXL Lip Gloss in Pinkwell. Value = $5.60

Tangle Teezer Hairbrush. Value = $15.00

.85 oz. Caviar Alterna Replenishing Moisture Milk. Value = $5.00

.5 oz. Pixi Petra Glow Tonic Toner. Value = $1.75

Erno Laszlo Firmarine Bar Soap. Value = $2.88

.24 oz. Jane Iredale Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener. Value = $6.70

The total value of this box is $53.93. I'm really liking all the Caviar products I've been getting, so far all like all of their products. I already have a tangle teezer brush so I think I will trade this one. I don't use the one I have because I have short hair and brushing it wet really isn't an issue for me. I also already have a Erno Laszlo bar but I think it's a different formula. I can't believe the Kaplan MD product is so expensive. I usually use some type of serum before bedtime so I'll add this to the mix of products. I wonder how long it takes to see results and will this be enough product. I'm not a fan of the lip gloss color, it's a little too pink for me. I think that put that in my giveaway basket at work. I'm a big fan of toners and this one says it's exfoliating. I'm not sure how that works but I'm willing to try it. 

Verdict: This box was a good box for me.
