October 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.

Contents of box with approximate retail value.

2.5 oz. Rituals Ginkgo's Secret Ginkgo Biloba Hand Cream. Value = $17.00

Kryolan Lipstick Trio in Aurora, Eos & Nike. Value = $??

The total value of this box is $46.55 plus the kryolan lipstick sample. I'm actually loving all the stuff in this months box. I'm a big fan of bumble and bumble. I'm always using hand cream. Hair masque are something I use frequently. I think the eyeshadow will go great with my hazel eyes and I use some kind of face treatment every night so the Jouer fits right in there. Last but not least I'm not a huge lipstick person but I'm eager to try these colors, they look vibrant and fun!

Verdict: This box was perfect for me!
