As always I hope you had a fantastic weekend! I had a really good busy weekend, but weekends are just never long enough! Today I am going to show you everything that came in the massive Allure Beauty Box. Keep reading to see everything I got.
What it is.
Allure Magazine comes out with 3 big beauty boxes every year for Spring, Summer, and Winter. Each box is full of tons of essential products to get you through the whole season. I had never even heard of this box until this year and knew I wanted one, but what I did hear was it is almost impossible to get one. The box will go on sale and literally 5 minutes later it’s sold out. This whole beauty box craze crashed the website making a lot of people mad. But I was lucky enough to get my hands on one. The box is $45 plus shipping and it’s valued at over $200. They show you exactly what you will be getting before you purchase it, so it isn’t a mystery!
Because there are so many products I haven’t tried all of them yet, so I’m only going to talk about the ones I have tried (thank goodness right, or we would be here forever). But I will show pictures of all of them. So sit tight and grab yourself a snack! :)
<From Left to Right>
*Rusk Freezing Spray: I have used this a few times and I really like it! First of all it smells incredible and at this point I’m sure you’ve caught on, I really love smell good things! Anyways it also works really well. It doesn’t make your hair feel crunchy or sticky. I would definitely repurchase this.
*Big Sexy Hair, Get Layered Flash Dry Thickening Hairspray.
*Pureology Fresh Approach Dry Condition: This is so interesting to me. I’ve used dry shampoo many times, but never really thought about a dry conditioner. It’s perfect to use after dry shampoo to make your hair soft and shiny. It doesn’t make your hair look greasy because it is a dry product. Really diggin this! And again smells amazing!
*Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Heat Protect Spray.
*One ‘N Only Argan Oil Cream-to-Serum Styler: I’m not exactly sure about this stuff but either I’m using it wrong or it just doesn’t work for my hair type. I’ve tried using it a couple times but every time I do when I go to dry my hair it makes it feel coarse and really tangled. Once it’s all dry it ends up working out okay, but I just don’t know if it’s helping my hair or anything.
*Redken Mess Around 10 Disrupting Cream-Paste
*Not Your Mother’s Intensive Hair Unit Renewal Treatment: I used this once and it was a nice hair mask but I don’t think it was all that special. I love a lot of hair products from that line tho. I just prefer this one instead.
*Developlus Anti-Aging Hair Treatment System: Never used… thinking about doing a giveaway for this product. Let me know if you would like to win this, in the comments below and I will set one up.
*Dove Purely Pampering Body Wash
*Softsoap Sea Kissed Exfoliating Body Wash
*Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face+Body Stick Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 70
*TanTowel Classic Self-Tan Towelettes
*Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths
*Burt’s Bees Even-Tone Moisturizing Cream: I’ve used this a lot and I really like it. It seems to make my face brighter while really moisturizing my skin. It applies really easy and really sinks right into the skin. The only thing I don’t like is it smells kind of funky, like too earthy or something. :/
*IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+Cream with SPF 50+: I absolutely LOVE this so so much! I’m going to spare all of the details because I will do a full review on this soon (I love it that much)
*Cargo Cosmetics Essential Lip Gloss: I’ve used this several times and I really like it. The color is so universal, anyone could use it and it would look great. It also looks really good over lipstick.
*Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick: I really like how moisturizing this is, because some of these lip crayons can be pretty drying. The color is really nice and it smells like berries.
*Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara: I really like this mascara. I’ve heard so much rave about this and it lives up to the hype. It lengthens and volumizes. Love it!
As you can see I’ve used most of the makeup… go figure.
*Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Color and Top Coat: I really love the formula of these polishes. They go on super creamy and opaque then stay on for at least a week. They are so shiny on their own they don’t even need the top coat (but I still use it). This is in the color Pixie Slicks.
*Flower Nail’d It Nail Lacquer in Eye of the Tiger Lilly
Randomly enough Toothpaste.

OMG, did you get a full size IT Cosmetics CC in that box? That alone is about $40, and I love it. What an amazing deal! I better keep my eyes open for the next box.
