Hello and happy Thursday! I’ve been getting Allure Beauty boxes for well over a year. The cost is $15USD. The value is much higher due to getting at least two full size products per month.
First up is a full-size Thrive Lip Liner in Kackie valued at $20USD. It’s a great neutral color which would look good on any skin color. Here’s the description from their website.
- Revitalizing Lip Quench Technology™ acts as a built-in lip primer to treat, smooth + plump.
- Semi-Permanent Micropigment Technology™ delivers bold, full coverage, no-bleed color that lasts all day.
- The easy glide formula is encapsulated in a retractable mechanical pencil – twist to reveal product.
- Includes a built-in sharpener so you can create a precision tip for more detailed application.
I love lip pencils and have way too many, but who cares?? Here’s what it looks like on me, I used it as both liner and lip color, with a touch of lip balm. This will go into heavy rotation amongst my lip liners.
I got all kinds of goodies this month. The sizes are more generous than a deluxe sample. I got .24 oz of Flowerbomb L’Eau De Parfum. It retails at $115 for 1.7 ounces. It’s a lovely floral fragrance that smells wonderful. Cicapair Derma Green Solution SPF 30 came in a .16 oz jar. I’ll be anxious to try this as I have redness around my nose. It retails for $18USD for .5 ounces.
Purlisse Match Green Tea Sheet Mask valued at $8USD. With all the craziness going on in the world right now, putting on a sheet mask is right up there at the top of my to-do list.
Lue by Jean Seo Balance Serum who doesn’t love a good serum? This is full size at 1 oz for $15USD. I think this will be a gentle serum to use daily. I just started using Tretinoin, so this will be a great add on.
I always love trying new hair products. I color my hair myself, and it tends to get very dry. I have naturally curly, fine hair that has a mind of its own. Mane Magic Multibenefit 10-in-1 Primer
This is 1 ounce for $6USD. This will be a great product to use when we go to Costa Rica in the Fall.
Akar Skin Balance Toner 2.5 ounces cost $55USD. The size I received is 1 oz. This toner smells wonderful. Check out the description from their website:
For all skin types
Spray your way to glowing, healthy skin. This non-sticky Rose and Neroli scented mist sets gently into the skin, providing deep hydration, improving overall elasticity, while simultaneously keeping the pH value of the skin’s acid mantle layer at the optimum level. Salicylic acid from White Willow Bark is both anti-microbial and exfoliating, helping prevent build-up in pores as well as acne-related issues. Stem cell extracts from the rare Saffron flower contain antioxidants and carotenoids which aids the epidermis in repair and regeneration. Last but not least, Balance enables greater absorption of nutrients by lowering the skin’s surface tension, which means that all the good stuff – in this toner, and everything you apply next – will be fully absorbed, right into your skin.
Our toning mist does not contain irritants like alcohol, nor is it diluted with water fillers, ensuring noticeably softer and luminous skin with use.

I know times are tough right now, but this is only $15 a month. I don’t smoke, barely drink, buy my clothes second hand, color my own hair, etc. I hope to be retiring within the next few years, so my beauty boxes may have to go away. I’ll just have to enjoy them while I can.
Thanks for stopping by.
