Each box includes an info booklet that details each item and why Allure editors decided to include it in the box.
RITUALS Ginkgo’s Secret Hand Balm – FULL SIZE! Value $17
Yay – we’re already over the cost of the box with this item! This is the ideal hand cream formula for me – it’s a thick cream, but it absorbs quickly, and leaves your skin moisturized but not greasy. I like the scent too!
Red Flower Lymphatic Phytopower Sea Cleanser and Masque – 32.5 ml Value $5.25
This works as both a cleanser and a 5-minute mask. (I love a quick mask!). So far I’ve only used it as a cleanser, but I like it. The formula is gentle and the scent is very light. The only issue I have with this sample is that it isn’t very easy to get the product out of the container. (I resorted to using a q-tip to get it out!)
Jouer Daily Clarifying Treatment Oil – 3 ml Value $4.80
I’ve sampled this serum before and I really like it. The formula is fragrance and paraben free too. (Subscribers will receive either the Clarifying Treatment Oil or the Repair Treatment Oil).
Cargo Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Flint – FULL SIZE! Value $16
(Subscribers will receive one of the following four shades: Flint, Pasadena, Oz or Greenbay). I feel like I lucked out on my box this month – this is my favorite shade out of the four options. Flint is a matte gray/brown, and perfect for a smokey eye look. (I’ve swatched it in the last photo).
Bumble and Bumble BB. All Style – .5 oz Value $3
This Bumble and Bumble styling cream is designed to help with heat-styled hair and also fight frizz. The formula is really lightweight and the scent is addictive!
Kryolan Lipstick Matt in Aurora, Eos and Nike – Sampler – Value?
These shades are SUPER pigmented and bold! The formula is matte, and the colors have some serious staying power too. Swatched below:
Verdict: This box has a value of about $46. (Not counting the lipstick sampler). I think that’s great for a $15 beauty box, especially since two of the items were full size! I’ll use everything in this box with the exception of the lipstick (it’s a little too bold a look for me), but at least it was just a sample pack!
