Week 1: The Allure Beauty Box

Subscription boxes have been all the rage for quite some time and believe me, I have tried SO MANY! Having a growing love for the beauty subscription trend, I was intrigued to learn that Allure does a box, too!

Allure

The Product
Allure is among the top rated beauty magazines in the world. They cover everything from products, to trends, to celeb favorites. I have been a huge fan of the magazine since I was a preteen just learning how to apply basic eyeshadow!
Their Monthly Beauty Box contains five samples from high-end brands delivered to your door each month along with a easy to navigate product card teaching you about the product and how to use it.

The Hype
What sets this box apart from the others is the enticing list of previously featured products. They seem to feature only the best brands on the market. Not only this, but they guarantee that all products in the boxes are editor tested and top-trending. Since this is such a well-known company in the beauty industry, its safe to say these claims are true!

The $$$
The Allure Beauty Box retails for $15/month with no contract to cancel the subscription. This is a bit higher than its competitors, Birchbox and Ipsy which are typically $10/month. However, the average retail value of the products in the box ranges from $50-90. Not a bad deal since they promise to only send the best products on the market!  They also offer the first box for $10 upon sign up and promise an extra freebie in the first box!

The Verdict
I have been receiving this box for 4 months now and Allure has definitely lived up to its hype. I have received products from Tarte, Dior, Sunday Riley, Makeup Forever, and so much more! What I love most about this box, as opposed to others, is that they send so many full sized products in addition to the typical sample sizes. I never feel that I did not receive a reasonably sized product to try and I actually have discovered some new favorite products from this box!
Overall, I think subscription boxes are a great way to test new products without breaking the bank. If you are looking for a subscription that provides higher end products and offers full size and sample sizes each month I HIGHLY recommend trying out this box!
