Subscription Satelite: Allure Beauty Box July 2021

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from travelling the vast nerd universe! I am back with a return of a beauty box!

Allure Beauty Box July 2021

I cancelled this box because I felt bored with it and that I can get some items from the drugstore as easily. But realized there are times where trying items I haven’t tried before is important to get a better idea of the product without going into it blindly, no pun intended. After cancelling BoxyCharm and just sticking with Ipsy, I kind of missed this box and when they sent an email about a free gift that is worth a lot, I decided why not get back into it? So, it looks like the price has been raised from $15 a month to $23 a month and boxes can be worth over $200 with items that have spotlights in Allure Magazine. I do catch articles that interest me but of course seeing some of the top lists help my purchasing decisions. Let’s see what I got in this first box of being gone for two years.

Siate London Trend Pallet Bronzed: First up is an eye shadow pallet from Gate London. I neveCiate London Trends Bronzed Pallet: First up is a pallet from Ciate London. I have tried products from these guys in the past and enjoyed them so far. This is a nine pan pallet with earth tones and sunset shades mixed with matte and metallics. I will have to see how this goes even with my favorite eye primers. This pallet retails for $24.

Able Skin Care Retexturing & Resurfacing Duo Moisturizer: Next up is a product from Able Skin Care. I think I’ve seen this in some articles but never tried them if I remembered. I’m glad to find this in my box! This is a product that can help sensitive skin, it has Niacinamide and Lactic Acid to help with calming the skin and keeping it soothed throughout the night. The price for this thing is just whoa but I am glad to get a sample at least. I’m sorry I won’t buy skin care for this price which this retails for $132. I understand skin care is supposed to work over time and should be bought the most when it comes to price but there are drugstore brands I do love that are half the price or even more.

Acure Brightening Vitamin C Jelly Mask: Next up is a product from one brand I got in the past in this box and that is Acure. This is a mask that has antioxidants in it such as Vitamin C and does tighten in order to help with moisture. After a bit you do have to wash it off. I don’t miss having a wash off mask but this would be something worth to try. I don’t see a retail price but I have a feeling it may be high.  Wait! Found the price! It retails for $19.99.

La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 Serum : Next up is a product from a brand I tend to see advertised on YouTube and seen on Ulta. This is a luxury brand from what I’ve seen and I hear their sunscreen is a bit popular but it looks like I got a serum in this box. I’ve been using a Good Molecules serum and glad to get a serum to try from La Roche-Posay to at least try not buy. This has a combination of Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin B5 for moisture. I will have to see how this works with my skin! This retails for $29.99.

Winky Lux Uni-Brow Universal Brow and Lip Pencil: Next up is a product from Winky Lux. I was tempted to get their coffee cat pallets but Wet N Wild got my money for that instead. Oh well! This is a universal brow pencil and from the looks of it can be used for the lips as well? I think I will keep this on my brows since they are dark brown and will have to see how this goes since I can purchase this from Ulta. I may have to take this with me to Atlanta. This retails for $16.

Nature Labs Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner: Last two items are a shampoo and conditioner that won a Best of Beauty Award from Allure. These help with frizzy hair and also color treated hair. When I saw this in the magazine and knowing they are two tubes in my box, I am glad they did include these since I have frizzy hair. I have to see how well this goes. These two retail for $15 each!

This was a really good box! I know I was a bit harsh on it at first but I feel that this is worth the $23 since we are trying to take care of our skin and hair. I will have to see how each item goes! I can’t wait to see what comes in my August box since I did come back as another subscriber another item for new people will arrive. Next will be my Glam Bag Plus!
