The Goods

  1. Icelandic Moonflower Moisturizing Body Lotion – Red Flower. Regular price: $3.25

img_8696

The daily pleasure of caring for the skin is now more deeply nourishing and softening with the botanical fruit and leaf butter blend of aloe barbadensis leaf juice, virgin coconut oil and avocado oil concentrated to deeply hydrate and soothe dry, parched skin. This lotion is formulated to increase moisture content and help repair damaged skin cells. Whole essential oils delicately scent and further soften. This super-powered, moisture-boost blend, soothes and protects the skin against the sun and environmental elements and helps promote cell regeneration and capillary circulation. This lotion smells amazing and absorbs quickly, leaving my skin feeling soft and moisturized.

  1. Omnia Crystalline – Bulgari. Regular price: $8.99

Capturing the glowing clarity of crystal light, Omnia Crystalline illuminates, reflects, and reveals a woman’s unique radiance, her femininity, her beauty – the inexpressible, irresistible lightness of her being. This perfume is feminine, light, and the perfect amount of floral. I do enjoy the scent, but unfortunately perfume (ALL perfumes) give me migraines, so I’ll probably pass this on to a friend.

  1. Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner – Eyeko. Regular price: $11.40

Intense single stroke waterproof carbon black eyeliner. Easy-to-use precision tip creates the perfect line to subtly accentuate the eye or create a dramatic cat eye. Glides on over eye shadow and stays on even on the waterline. Features WIDELASH to help eyelashes appear longer, fuller and stronger with up to 3 times more volume in just 15 days regular use. I’m very intrigued by this “widelash” feature, if it works this will totally be my new go-to eyeliner! It goes on easily and dark, and applying eyeliner that goes from thin inside to thicker outside is easy with the shape of the precision tip.

  1. Botanical Mask Pack – Bonvivant. Regular price: $3.00

100% Botanical Fiber Sheet + 100% Botanical Juice = 200% happier skin! Pamper your skin with rich, nourishing, and hydrating essences. This mask is created with the most effective and beneficial botanical ingredients and materials out there. Soothing & Hydrating Aloe Masks are made with a biodegradable, botanical fiber sheet extracted from Aloe Vera for improved moisture absorbency, retention, and breathability. The essence is rich in Aloe Vera Leaf Water, Hyaluronic Acid, and Allantoin to replenish moisture, and soothe stressed out or sensitive skin. I love these masks because unlike the drying masks that make my skin feel tight, these stay moist and leave my skin feeling great. I also love that this mask uses Sodium Hyaluronate instead of Hyaluronic Acid, because actual hyaluronic acid (like a lot of companies use) won’t penetrate skin due to its molecule size. Sodium Hyaluronate, the salt of hyaluronic acid, IS small enough to penetrate skin so you actually receive the benefits of it.

  1. Hydrance Optimale Rich Hydrating Cream – Eau Thermale Avene. Regular price: $11.85

Rich, creamy moisturizer provides long-lasting hydration and helps prevent water from evaporating from the skin. Smoothness and luminosity are restored and fine dehydration lines are minimized. Patented ingredients replenish moisture and help maintain skin’s hydration. This goes on as a light lotion yet gives all the hydration of a thick cream. It takes a few minutes to absorb, and I also have to apply it sparingly to avoid my skin feeling tacky.

  1. Shampoo with Essential Olive Extract – Klorane. Regular price: $7.40

This shampoo is formulated to add thickness and vibrancy to all hair types, but thinning-haired women will benefit the most from the essential oils and ingredients that gently reinvigorate heat-damaged and aging hair. The olive extract is full of essential fatty acids and antioxidant agents that rebuild and thicken hair for visibly bouncy, more youthful-looking locks. I loved the Klorane dry shampoo from last month’s box, so I was excited to try this as well. I was not disappointed! This shampoo left my hair silky, soft, shiny and manageable after just one wash! I couldn’t believe the difference, it felt like I’d been to the salon. This is my new favorite shampoo!

Value

The total value of the products in this month’s box is $45.89 The Allure Beauty Box costs $15.00/month, so this is a good value in my opinion. This box is special to me because the products are always the BEST of the best, high end beauty products. I can’t afford to spend a ton of money on expensive skincare/hair care/makeup products, so it’s really nice to get to try all these great products. I usually won’t spend more than $10 for makeup and skincare boxes, but I’m making an exception for the Allure Beauty Box!

  1. Thanks for the follow. I’m a Hoosier also, hailing from Indianapolis. I had some friends years ago who lived in Highland. I buy so much stuff on Amazon too, they sent me an invite to review products. I somehow deleted the email, and tried contacting them, but I never heard back. Any tips on how I can get a hold of them? Thanks!

    • they sent you an invite to be a VINE reviewer?! holy crap do you realize how big of an opportunity you missed… If you are an amazon vine reviewer, you get the best of the best for FREE. They send you a list of available free for vine products, including furniture, electronics, appliances, sports equipment, jewelry, etc. and you pick the items you want, they send them to you for free, and all you have to do is review the product within 30 days. I would do anything to be a vine reviewer.
      But anyways, the way I got started reviewing was signing up for http://www.amzreviewtrader.com which has tons of stuff for free or cheap you request and if you get approved they’ll send you it to review. In the beginning, I requested all the lower quality items that I’d definitely get approved for (bc no one else wants it), and I’d leave video reviews for everything. This quickly boosted my reviewer score with helpful votes and thorough reviews and slowly I got accepted for better and better things and now I get approved for just about anything I request there. I also signed up on all the other free for review sites and did the same thing. Here is a list of such sites to get you started. http://www.reviewercollective.com/list-of-amazon-review-sites-for-free-products/ and now my reviewer rank is so high on amazon that I just get emails from sellers directly asking me to review their products for free, like 50 emails a day. I have my email address in my amazon bio so when they click on me that’s how they get my info.

      Thats a tip on how to get free stuff to review on amazon.. as to how to get ahold of them, go here https://www.amazon.in/gp/help/customer/contact-us? select “prime or something else” then “more non-order questions” then “community reviews” then “EMAIL” and they’ll respond within 24 hours. Also if you use gmail and search amazon reviews, under the results at bottom of page it should say “Some messages in Trash or Spam match your search. View Messages”. Maybe you’ll find the email there.

      Whew! Hope this helps!
