My items were shipped in a white box with no additional cushioning.
All but one of my items were tucked into a plastic bag.
I received a few advertising inserts.
Plus a coupon to save $20 off of a Bauble Bar Purchase!
Allure is a magazine so they produce a mini-magazine with all the featured items in the box.
The magazine lists each product, the MSRP of the full-sized product, and where you can find more. Plus, you can find some discount codes for a future purchase.
The magazine also tells you how you can use the products in the box.
NOTE: Allure sometimes sends several box versions so your mini-magazine and products (and value) may differ from mine.
Everything in my box!
For 2019 Allure has sent a monthly beauty bag, and the color changes every month. This bag is made of clear green plastic and this time it has a flap that can be tucked in to keep it closed. Personally, I have not found the bags to be useful.
Avene Eau Thermale Spray ($9) I have a couple of these mini spray bottles of water around my house and in my pool bag.
It’s mineral water from France and you just spritz skin, maybe before applying a skin oil or serum, or just for a refreshing touch up throughout the long, hot, summer day.
Context Vitamin C All-Day Eye Cream ($24.99) I love to use eye cream to keep this delicate area hydrated and as long as I don’t fall for outrageous claims then I am generally pretty happy with trying new products.
I was happy to see that fragrance wasn’t listed but I did see hyaluronic acid, which helps draw water to the area. There isn’t really any scent and the under eye area felt cool after I gently applied the gel before bed and makeup.
Moroccan Oil Treatment ($4.40) Hair oils are too heavy for my fine hair so I will pass this along to someone who can appreciate the wonderful scent and the way it may help smooth hair while fighting frizz.
SGX NYC 3-In-1 Dry Texture Spray ($1.54) was a bonus item and not found in the booklet (except for the back page ad). It is a combo texture spray and dry shampoo that of course also helps the hair smell refreshed. I didn’t notice any powdery residue like I normally see with dry shampoo, and the smell reminded me of Oribe products.
Floss. My New Favourite Gloss in YUL ($16) is a mineral-oil based gloss with a touch of shimmer that comes in 4 colors, although this one was mostly just a tad shiny.
It goes on like a gloss but doesn’t feel sticky and gross. It has a light flavor, like vanilla cake batter, and just adds a touch of shine to an otherwise neutral color scheme that I tried today.
The Brow Gal Eyebrow Pencil ($23) I’m not all that into brow products personally but I did have my brows done recently and this does match my color pretty well.
A sharpener on one end is very convenient!
I received #4 Medium Brown.
The other end has a spoolie brush so you can blend as much as you like.
The color was perfect for me! The pencil is harder than some but it is supposed to look more like real hair and last all day long. I didn’t have any embarrassing streaks above my brows so I guess it really worked!
I thought the products in the June Allure Beauty Box went well with the Refresher Course theme! They are meant to help you get out the door quickly and to help you make touch-ups in no time during the day. The value for the June box was around $78.93!
