Allure Beauty Box Review – September 2015

Hi everyone!

IMG_4918_2It’s time for my monthly Beauty Box review!

IMG_4920_2Each box comes with a magazine, which gives more information on the featured products.

IMG_4923The September box came with seven products!  Wow!  That’s the most I’ve ever received in an Allure box!

Box Contents:

  • Tangle Teezer
  • Pixi by Petra – Glow Tonic
  • Alterna – Replenishing Moisture Milk
  • Erno Laszlo – Firmarine Bar Soap
  • Jane Iredale – Smooth Affair Facial Primer and Brightener
  • Soap & Glory – Pillow Plump XXL Lip Gloss
  • Kaplan MD – Cellular Rejuvenating Concentrate

I was pretty skeptical when I saw this in my box.  I don’t typically like the hair tools that I receive.

Funnily enough, I absolutely love this thing!! It works SO well and doesn’t break my hair at all!

I do have one complaint though.  I’ve been using it when I get out of the shower, and between my soaking wet hair and my leave in conditioner, the Tangle Teezer can get pretty slippery!! I’ve dropped it on a few occasions!  Oh well! I’ll quickly get over that!  It cuts my hair combing time in half when I get out of the shower!  That’s amazing!!!

I’ve heard great things about this product!  My friend, Lindsey, was telling me that it’s very similar to the Clinique Clarifying Lotion that I use everyday.  Since it’s just like my everyday product, I’m going to save this for the next time I travel!

I love this conditioner!  It works really well and isn’t too heavy!

I’ve received other Alterna products in subscription boxes before and they’re all great!

This is the conditioner I was using when I kept dropping my Tangle Teezer!  These two must be in cahoots! 🙂

IMG_4933_2Erno Laszlo – Firmarine Bar Soap

This is the cutest bar of soap I have ever seen!  It’s tiny!

I’m going to save this product for travel as well!  It will fit perfectly into my travel toiletries case!

IMG_4935_2Jane Iredale – Smooth Affair Facial Primer and Brightener

The mini magazine says this primer is supposed to smell like fresh orange juice.  I don’t smell the oranges.  I smell a mixed drink!

I’ve used this primer several times, and I like it.  I just don’t like it as much as the Benefit Porefessional I use everyday.

IMG_4932Soap & Glory – Pillow Plump XXL Lip Gloss

When I first put this lip gloss on, I liked it.  The color wasn’t great but it wasn’t terrible either.  About 10 minutes after applying the gloss, the burning began!  I understand the way plumping lip glosses work, but the burning was so bad (and not worth the results) that I had to wipe the lip gloss off!

I definitely won’t be using this in the future, but I will see if any of my friends would like to try it!

This is another item that I’ll be using for travel.  I already use a serum at night, so instead of hauling my large jar with me when I travel, I’ll just take this mini one!

IMG_5025_2Aside from the burning lip gloss, I’d say that this month’s Allure Beauty Box was a success!
