Today was like Christmas at my house as I got the Allure Beauty Box and Birchbox! I’ll get to reviewing the Birchbox next but the Allure one really got me excited so it goes first.

Here’s what I got in the July 2016 Allure Beauty Box!

The cost of the Allure Box is $15 per month. You also get a really nice full-color booklet describing each product in detail.

GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Treatment – I was super excited to get a GlamGlow product. I’ve been wanting to get some but it’s a bit pricey at $69 for 1.2 oz. The mask is black and contains Eucalyptus but to me it smells like licorice in the bottle.

You get about 2 application in the sample. When you spread it on your face it’s pretty thin and burns a bit (but to me that means it’s working). It dries into a clay and when I washed it off my pores were noticeably smaller. I LOVE this mask!

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair – I haven’t used a night repair serum in ages and I’m excited to try this one out. It’s another pricey sample that costs $62 for 1 oz. You get .24 oz in the sample which would cost $15.50, that’s more than the entire cost of the box.

It’s supposed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles so I’m all in for that!

Clinique Chubby Stick in Super Strawberry – A few weeks ago I reviewed the Chubby Stick Baby Tints and was wishing they were a bit darker. I got my wish! This Chubby Stick is definitely darker and provides max mango and shea butter moisturizing. It’s a twist up too!

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer – Here’s another high-end product. This Smashbox primer is oil-free and it’s supposed to reduce the appearance of fine lines for a flawless finish. Can’t wait to try it.

La Mer ‘The Moisturizing Soft Cream’ – The final item in the box I had never heard of! This super high-end cream is sold at Nordstrom and sells for $85 for a .5 oz. WHAT! This sample is .11 oz. so you get a nice amount to try out.

The cream has an amazing earthy/floral scent and my 71-year-old mom gave it two thumbs up. Instantly made her skin feel softer.

So how do I feel about my first Allure Box? I give it a 10. I really felt like this was well worth the $15.
