The info booklet hasn’t changed – it details each item and why Allure editors decided to include it in the box.
Bb Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer 1oz – Value $4.50
This primer is a protective spray designed to help prevent damage from UV exposure and heated styling tools. The formula is very lightweight (the “invisible oil” name is accurate) and I like the fruity scent. It also made my hair feel instantly softer, so this product is a win for me!
Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist with Rosemary 0.5oz -Value $6
I have this in full size and I like it, so a travel-size version works for me. FYI – This is one of those products you have to shake really well before every application. After shaking the bottle a lot, I applied the mist (with eyes and lips tightly closed), and it works as promised. The finish is matte, and you get SPF 50 protection too. (This product can also be used as your last step for setting makeup).
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum .14oz – Value $18.20
This serum is a pretty good size (it should last me a week or two). I like the formula – it is a very lightweight cream, absorbs quickly, and the scent isn’t too strong. (I try to go with fragrance free skincare products when possible).
Estee Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Daring Length+Volume Mascara (Value $10? – size not listed)
I haven’t gotten a chance to try this yet, but the reviews on Sephora are encouraging. Hopefully it is a keeper!
Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo 39.6g – Value $7
I have SO much Oscar Blandi dry shampoo thanks to subscription boxes! It’s a great product, so I know I’ll use it when I get to it, but it isn’t as exciting as trying out a new product.
invisibobble Traceless Hair Ring – Value $7
These hair ties are designed to prevent any kinks/bumps/ridges in your hair that typically happen with a normal hair tie. I have medium-weight wavy hair, and this hair ring held really easily with only wrapping it around twice.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $52. I am happy with the value, the variety of items, and the sample sizes – I really hope Allure Beauty Box can keep this up month after month!
