Each box includes an info booklet that details each item and why Allure editors decided to include it in the box.
Crabtree & Evelyn Verbena and Lavender Bath and Shower Gel – 50 ml Value $6
I like this scent! It is fresh, and I think would work as a unisex scented product.
Kevin Murphy Anti-Gravity Oil Free Volumiser – 40 ml Value $7.60
This was the item in the box I was most excited to try. (I feel like I’m on a never-ending search for the ultimate hair volumizing product). This hair serum is a cross between a gel and a cream and it has a nice lavender scent. I tried it on dry hair, and I was happy with the results – a little extra volume. I’m guessing if I follow the instructions and apply with to damp hair and then blow-dry, I’ll like the results even more.
L’Occitane Divine Youth Oil – 4 ml Value $14
Wow – this stuff is over $100 an ounce! The formula is super lightweight, and I like the scent of the oil, so this will be a luxe nighttime skin treat for me for the next week! (And it is free of parabens, phthalates, and sulfates!)
Klorane Floral Eye Make Up Remover – 25 ml Value $2
This isn’t a super-exciting item for me, but it is a useful one. Plus this is designed to be a gentle formula.
Hanae Mori Hanae Perfume Sample – 1.2 ml Value $1.75
This perfume is super sweet and fruity. It’s not something I would pick out for myself, but I can’t stop smelling the sample!
Mally Beauty High Shine Liquid Lipstick in Berrylish -.09 oz – Value $15
(Subscribers will receive one of several shades).
This is a good sized sample (3/4 the size of the full-size version). And the applicator tip a brush instead of the standard lip gloss applicator:
It is a highly pigmented formula, but you can use it sparingly if you want just a little color and shine. Here it is swatched:
Verdict: This box has a value of about $46. It doesn’t really feel like a $46 box to me, though – I’m not sure exactly why. Maybe because some of the samples seem on the smaller side? At least the Divine Youth Oil alone almosts covers the cost of the box!
