Allure Beauty Box Winter 2013

The Allure Beauty Box goes on sale 4 times a year and sells out with a quickness.
This year it was gone in less than 30 mins!
This was my first time purchasing one, and I'm sharing this post because its a screaming good deal.

I received all but one item in this photo, the Salon On Cloud Wine polish. NBD, included was Neutrogena MoistureShine Lip Soother in replacement of the nail polish.

Drum roll please...Here's what's in the box!

 A total of 24 beauty products.
Price is $39.99 plus $10 shipping.

 Cat not included.

I had to included a second shot because my little furbabie insisted.
Causie is so proud of his beauty haul, "Look at what I can has Mum!'

Aveeno daily moisturizing lotion $6.99
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream (obsessed!) $28
Cetaphil Moisturizing cream $29
 Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs $12
Neutrogena Pore Refining Daily Cleanser $8
Smile Sciences Teeth Whitening Pen $78 
WOAH! I hope I don't like the whitening pen, that could be an inexpensive addiction.

One 'N Only Brazilian Tech Keratin De-Frizz Wand $8.99
Rusk deep shine color care Lock in treatment $17
Rusk deep shine invisible dry shampoo spray $19
Not Your Mother's Knotty to Nice Detangler $5.99
Love the detangler, but did I get a bad bottle? It doesn't seem to spray out easily for me.

Red Carpet Manicure Youth Creme $14.99
Zoya PixieDust in Tomoko $9
Julep Vixen Polish Duo $20
Sally Hansen Dry & Go Drops $6.99
Sally Hansen Insta Dri anti-chip top coat $5.99

NYX Love in Paris Eye Shadow Palette $10
E.L.F. Studio Conturing Blush & Bronzer Powder $3 (curiously similiar to NARS Orgasm blush!)
Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Eyeliner $4.99
Neutrogena Crease Proof Eye Shadow $8.99
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Primer $13.99
Neutrogena (*Replacement Product) MoistureShine Lip Smoother in Glisten $3.99
Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Polish in Dream Sequins $4.99
Almay Liquid Lip Balm in Pink $4.99
L'oreal Paris Extraordinaire by Color Riche in Coral Encore $5.99

That's around $330 worth of beauty products my friends.
 I'm actually really excited to try a bunch of these products. A lot of it are things I would normally put off buying, like the Sally Hansen Dry & Go drops and Top coat, which I needed! Like I mentioned on FB, the Ultra Repair Cream (retails $28) really made this whole purchase worth it. 
Overall, a great purchase and it appears I will have a very moisturizing winter!

I'll be revisiting a few of these items to review them for you. I know I'm intrigued as to how the ELF blush/bronzer compares to Nars.  Are there any in particular that you want me to review?


  1. Just wow!! I tip my imaginary Eiffel Tower hat to you because while I thought about doing a post on this, I just couldn't pull it off. I trying to go through and organize everything today and I am overwhelmed with all of the beauty stuff that arrived this week, I could easily open a store (or two!) You are so lucky that your "replacement" was a beauty product, mine was a flimsy Allure zip pouch, like one of their leftover freebies, ppl are complaining on Fb, but it doesn't seem like they are going to do anything about it, should have been a mandatory replacement would obviously be an actual beauty prooduct, that was super annoying..other than that I can't really complain. It really is an amazing value :)


    1. LOL, you are too funny! But how sucky is it that they gave you a cheapy replacement item!? Boo...I think a few neutrogena face cleansing bottles leaked in boxes as well. That almost happened to mine, but luckily it only leaked a tiny bit on the nail polish packadge box.

  2. Love the ultra repair cream! It's really great, never heard of this box but I want in!


    1. It's some serious great cream! You have to get this box next time Elissa! xo-Franci
