My Beauty Box Experience

Last month I went overboard and this month I found myself with so many goodies at my door. I am happy to say that the beauty boxes below are pretty wonderful! I would definently continue with the Allure Beauty Box, POPSUGAR, and ipsy. As for the DermStore box, I cancelled my order. I like to focus more on all different beauty products and that was too focuses on skin care.
Allure Beauty Box: $15.00 USD

Allure August 2015 Beauty Box

What I received:


  • Allure and Butter London Nail Lacquer in Violet’s Revenge: a great end of summer color.
  • Benefit They’re Real! Push-Up Liner: I actually have used this before. I’m not the biggest fan of this product currently but I don’t mind using it when it comes down to it.
  • MALIN+GOETZ Peppermint Shampoo: I love peppermint shampoo and this one is great! It left my hair feeling great with a light scent of peppermint. Turkey rejuvenating.
  • EAU THERMALE AVENE Cleanance Gel: really enjoyed the cleansing gel.
  • Bumble and Bumble BB Grooming Creme: Only used a little and avoided applying it near my scalp, in case it left my hair looking greasy.
  • NUANCE Salma Hayek Anti-Aging Super Cream: a light cream but not a fan of the smell.

July POPSUGAR Box: $39.99 USD

What I received:

  • Henri Bendel New York Brown and White Striped Cosmetic Case. Perfectly held all of my smaller beauty products from my other boxes.
  • Yes to Blueberries Age Refresh Cleansing Facial Wipes: not a fan. They smell great but just like the cucumber version, they leave a slight burning sensation around my eyes.
  • The Good Bean Chocolate Berry Bar: Which is actually pretty good and filling. Perfect for a late afternoon pick me up!
  • SORIAL Card Case in Red: Perfectly holds all of my cards and fits in all of my smaller bags.
  • Supergoop! Defense Refresh Setting Mist with Rosemary: Smells like rosemary and sunscreen. Did leave my face looking a little greasy by the end of the night but it was nice to know that I had on SPF.
  • pop Dental Super Soft Dupont Nylon Bristles: it’s a great and first electric toothbrush and left my teeth feeling super clean!
  • Hallmark Signature Cards: 3 unique cards for a wedding, birthday, and just because.
