SkinFix Hand Repair Cream – 1 oz Value $3.33
I love this stuff! It’s all natural, fragrance-free, and I think the perfect hand cream. The formula is rich and moisturizing without being greasy.
Pur-Lisse Daily Lip Nourisher with Mango & Shea Butter – FULL SIZE! Value $16
I love that this item alone is worth more than the cost of the box! This lip balm is paraben and petroleum free, and it is high shine! If you are looking for a glossy look without any stickiness, this is perfect!
Kevin Murphy Hydrate-Me Rinse – 1.4 oz Value $5.20
Kevin Murphy Hydrate-Me Wash – 1.4 oz Value $5.20
This shampoo and conditioner set is paraben and sulfate free, made in the USA, and cruelty-free too! I’ve sampled Kevin Murphy hair products once before thanks to subscription boxes, and they are definitely luxe! These smell wonderful, and I can’t wait to try them out. And the bottles are cute too:
Hello Breath Spray – FULL SIZE! Value $3.75
Subscribers will either receive this Mojito Mint, or the Pink Grapefruit Mint or Spearmint flavor. I like the mojito mint flavor! And the design is slick too – just twist the green part to cover the nozzle.
Bvlgari Omnia Paraiba – 5 ml Value $8
I complain about getting perfume vial samples in subscription boxes – BUT! – I love getting perfume minis in boxes! Considering this is only a 2 ml different in sample size, in theory it shouldn’t matter that much, but this mini bottle is so much cuter than a sample vial:
One thing to watch for – to open this you pull the top half off. It’s just open when you do that, so try not to do with as much force as I did! Here it is open:
Lancôme Visionnaire Nuit Beauty Sleep Perfector – 3 ml Value $5.30
This is a hydrating gel that is lightweight and gives your skin a dewy look after applying it. I absolutely love how my skin felt after putting this on. It is scented with a fragrance (which I normally don’t like in facial skincare products) but the scent is very subtle. My only issue with this sample is that it is small – I’ll probably only get 2 or 3 uses out of it.
UPDATE: I’ve used this twice now and already see a noticeable difference in my skin texture and appearance. That rarely happens for me with a skincare product to see a difference so soon. I highly recommend this product, and I think I will be buying the full-size version asap!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $47! I think that’s a great value for a $15 box, and I really love all the brands they included this month. I don’t always love getting drugstore brands in subscription boxes, but Allure Beauty Box seems to do a great job of singling out drugstore brands I love. (I will take all the SkinFix hand cream I can get!)
