Allure Beauty Box Review – August 2015

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly Allure Beauty Box review!

IMG_4212I would usually include my referral link right now except Allure no longer has a referral program.  So annoying!

IMG_4214Each box comes with a mini magazine with information and tips on the featured products.

IMG_4217Box contents:

  • Bumble and Bumble – Grooming Creme
  • Butter London – Nail Lacquers
  • Benefit – They’re Real Push-Up Liner
  • Malin + Goetz – Peppermint Shampoo
  • Eau Thermale Avène – Clearance Gel Cleanser
  • Nuance Salma Hayek – AM/PM Anti-Aging Super Cream

This is the second Bumble and Bumble product I’ve received in an Allure Beauty Box. I liked the first product, and I like the second!

I’ve used it after showering several days this week. It smells great and is working well!

IMG_4234Butter London – Nail Lacquers – The Sweet Spot

I love this polish!  It’s so pretty and natural looking!

I have it on my fingernails right now, and I’m going to keep wearing it for the next few weeks.

For my sorority’s recruitment, we’re required to have light pink/neutral nails.  This polish is perfect for that!

IMG_4227Benefit – They’re Real Push-Up Liner

I was pretty excited to see this sample in my box!  I’ve been curious about this liner for a while now.

I’ve heard bad reviews on the sample size.  The packaging doesn’t provide enough product for a decent sample.  I figured that out really quickly.  On my first try, I squeezed out the majority of the product.  That was rather unfortunate.

I also wasn’t a fan of how tiny the tube is.  I had a hard time holding it.  I’m a dork though, so I doubt many other people had this problem too!

I have no complaints on the product just the packaging!  I’d be really interested in trying out the full size!

I’m a weirdo and was a little hesitant to mix this shampoo with my go-to conditioner.  I did give it a try though!

I didn’t notice a difference between this shampoo and my regular one.  I was worried that the new shampoo would make my hair greasy or do weird things!  I’m so glad it didn’t!!

This shampoo smells awesome!  A pepperminty explosion!

This cleanser is for oily and acne-prone skin types.  I don’t really suffer from either of those afflictions, so I’ll be asking some of my friends if they’d like to give this product a try!

I have a few dry patches on my face right now, so I’m going to give this cream a try tonight and see how it goes!

IMG_4245(I didn’t realize until way after the fact that I forgot one of the products when I took this picture! Whoopsie!!)

Overall, I’m pretty pleased with this month!  I would’ve preferred a full size liner, but that’s asking for a lot! 🙂
