My first glimpse inside the Allure Box for November
Everything that came in my November Allure Beauty Box
So what is all this stuff?
Our box insert arrives in the form of a mini magazine. These are great because they tell you more about the product and it’s full retail value.
The first product in my box for this month is a When “The Last Chance” Bio Cellulose mask. I’ve used their products in the past but never this one so that’s okay! Kind of over sheet masks in general but as theirs are of a really good quality – I’ll accept.
$8 ($48 for 6 sets)
Next up in our box is a set of eye masks from Skinmedica. These Instant Brightening Eye Masks help to reduce puffiness and correct a good deal of discoloration. Perfect for recovery days after late nights (especially around the holidays).
One of the full sized items that was included in our box for the month is this Self Esteem Beauty Sleep Serum from Dermelect. This serum is a power house of salicylic and glycolic acid to help with pores and uneven skin tone. It also contains brightening Vitamin C as well as hydrating Hyaluronic Acid for a full skincare regimen in ONE product!
My favorite item that was included in this month’s box is this Josephine Cosmetics Eye/Dazzle in the shade Leona. Not only is the packaging of this product stella the look of the shiny champagne colored metallic is gorgeous for the holiday season.
Then we have a product from Acure. The Ultra Hydrating 12 Hour Facial Moisturizer. This is a generous sample size and I have tried this in the past and really enjoyed it! So I am glad to have received it.
Naturelab is a brand that I have only ever received in my Allure Boxes. This is their Clarifying Scalp Scrub. After using the Peter Thomas Roth Scalf Exfoliator I’m excited to try a similar product from a different brand. This is a small sample but the full size is inexpensive enough that if I like it I may purchase more!
Manna Kadar did the beauty box circuit a bunch a couple of years ago. Apparently they are making a comeback with their “Step” themed products and included their Lip Bliss Moisturizing Lip Mask in boxes. This is a full sized product which is really nice – and it’s great if you are liquid lipstick user too!
The final item in our box for November is this sample size of Neogen Dermalogy Real Ferment Micro Essence. This toner includes both yeast and rice ferments to improve the skin’s micro-biome. Use it as a first step in your skincare routine. This works particularly well for people with oily skin.
So in summary
Presentation: Everything was packaged well and arrived to me perfectly in my box from Allure for November
Quality: Allure does a great job of including on trend and high quality brands in their boxes each month
Curation: This is a nice mix of primarily skincare products. I personally really liked this month’s box!
