Allure Beauty Box Winter Preview

Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate/referral links.

They just released the preview for the Allure Beauty Box!  I purchased the Fall box and I have slowly been using the items and enjoying the huge box.  It did help reduce the purchases at Target to be honest.  This box will be available to purchase in 6 days!  Hope the pricing information helps you make a decision.  I think I’m in again…LOL!  I’d end up paying over $250 with taxes and instead will pay a little over $50.

Winter Box

Breakdown of the items included in the box:

  • Aloxxi Conditioning detangler ($20): Last box they included a dry shampoo from Aloxxi and it was the first time I tried the brand.  I would really like to try this product as it is a sulfate free and paraben free product.

Aloxxi Detangler

Biore Mask

Burt’s Bees Towelettes

  • Cetaphil Intesive Moisturizing Cream ($7.99 at Target): Clinical studies have shown it possesses skin protectant, moisturizing, soothing, and anti-inflammatory properties.  Mike will use this item for sure.

Moisturizer

Hydrating Gel

Toothbrush + Whitener Pen

  • Curel Rough Skin Rescue ($6.29 at Walgreens): This item was in last box as well, great product.  May regift or leave at the office for community use.

Curel

Dove

  • Jergens Natural Glow ($8.19 at Target): We received a similar product in the Fall box and it was medium.  This one appears to come in Fair to Medium and I would be able to give this a try.

Jergens

John Frieda

John Frieda

  • John Frieda Frizz Ease Oil Elixir ($8.99 at Target): Another John Frieda product I haven’t tried.  I may just give this away if I order the box.  I’ve received so many hair oils recently I think I’m set for a while.

John Frida Oil

Hydro Boost

Mousse

  • Organic Doctor Hand Treatment ($12.49 at Vitamin World): We received three products by Organic Doctor in the fall box and I loved them all.  This will be an added incentive for me.

Hand & Nail Cream

Elixir

  • Physician’s Formula Nude Glow Blush ($8.39 at Target): I like products by Physician’s formula for my sensitive skin.  I don’t buy blush since I rarely wear any, and I need to throw out the one in my drawer.

Blush

  • Rusk Texture ($18.00 at Ulta): This is a finishing spray.  Mike received another item in his Birchbox and loved it.  This may be a good product for me.

Finishing Dry Spray

  • Splat Instant Color Hair Chalk ($5.99 at Target): This seems like a super fun item.  Love it for the 80’s theme parties that come up every once in a while. The picture shows the Rose color.

Hair Chalk

  • StyleSexyHair H2No 3 day style saver ($18.95 at Ulta): I can’t wash my hair daily or it will get dry and brittle.  The dry shampoos have become a favorite to help feel like my hair is not oily or stinky.  I haven’t tried this brand yet.

Dry Shampoo
