Allure Beauty Box June
Another month! I’ve been having a great June. We had Father’s Day, might have bought a house, and did some travelling. We have been totally covered in happiness and the summer weather has finally arrived. Anyway, I was doing some yard work under the watchful eye of the dog when this month’s Allure box rolled in!
Inside my Box
The first item in the box was the Browgal Eyebrow Pencil ($23, full size). I have used several different brow products from Browgal before, and they’re all relatively average. This one is not the worst I’ve tried, but it’s also not the best. Firmly average. I received the shade medium brown and it’s a good match for me, although a little warm-toned compared to what I like. It’s firm, and waxy, but not creamy, and I love the little sharpener in the cap. I’ll be using this for sure! The other “makeup: items was My New Favorite Lip Gloss from Floss ($16, full size). This is a nice lip gloss, and I’m totally here for the moment that lip gloss is having right now. I love the consistency of this. It’s smooth, not sticky at all and feels super comfortable on. I don’t like that it essentially has no color. It’s a very light pink, and it doesn’t fit me very well. It’s roughly the same color as my lips, so this doens’t do much for me on it’s own. I’ll need to wear it over a lipstick, which I’m sure I will.
The box this month also had a few hair products. First up is the SGX NYC The Do-It-All 3-in-1 Dry Texture Spray ($1.06, sample size). This is a fairly affordable product, ringing in at around $7 at Target for the full size. I was recently watching a Kayley Melissa video about this and was so excited to get to try it! It feels a lot like a dry shampoo, but it also has a little more grittiness to it. I often like to use dry shampoo on clean hair to add some texture, and this is exactly what I need for that. Given the cheaper price point and great feeling it gives m hair, I think this is an awesome alternative to the Oribe Dry Texture Spray! The other hair item was one of my tried-and-true ones…the Moroccanoil Original Treatment ($4.40, sample size). I have used this off and on quite a bit. The only thing that kills me about it is that Argan oil (the Moroccan oil of note) isn’t the top ingredient. It’s third, after two silicone compounds. So all that smoothing? It’s not the oil. It’s the silicone. So, this has gone from being a pre-wash treatment to being a second day frizz-fighter.
The other two items are skincare based. The Avene Eau Thermale Thermal Spring Water ($9, full size) is a can of spray water. I don’t need this. No one needs this. It is a can of water and nitrogen. It does feel nice during the summer on hot days, and I like to bring the can on hikes. I do not think you need to buy this. The last item in the box is a squeezy tube of Contex Vitamin C All Day Eye Cream ($35, full-size). I like it when skincare comes in squeeze tubes, and the formula on this is nice. I haven’t used it long enough to see any changes, but I like it how it feels and will be using it up.
The overall total value of this box is a little less than $88.46. For a box that costs (full price) $15, that’s not bad, but last month’s box had a value of significantly less, at only $66. t’s hard to judge if Allure is worth it when the months can be so up and down. All things in, this is a good value for $15. I am also continually impressed and will get a lot of use out of this box.
