Hello! I hope you're having a great day! For this post, I want to share with you guys the newest subscription box I have subscribed to:
Unlike my other subscription box posts, I don't actually have a video for this one. I don't know why, but every time I tried to film one, I was very unhappy with how it turned out. I eventually gave up in frustration and decided this would be a blog-only box for this month. As I was saying before, this is a slightly more expensive subscription box than my normal ones (I have been subscribed to even more expensive boxes, namely Glossybox and the Blush.com Mystery Beauty Bag) at $15. Based on this month and the October box (...which I have already gotten. I'm very behind...), the value of these boxes seem to be higher and included bigger samples/full sizes of more expensive products. There is no reward program, which is kind of disappointing since a lot of the value of my Birchbox (and some of my Ipsy) comes from their rewards, but again, you seem to get a lot of value in the actual products you receive.
One of the biggest selling points of this box, after knowing that I will get my money's worth in product, is the information booklet.

I did purchase the Target-sized version of this product as soon as I heard about it and how awesome it apparently was, but even though I already own it, I love it so much I'm happy to have a travel sized version! This is an alcohol-free toner (which is hard enough on it's own to find in the drugstore) with 5% glycolic acid (to exfoliate), aloe vera (to soothe), and witch hazel (an antiseptic). Allure says it smells like soap, but to me it smells like wild flowers. To the best of my memory, fragrance is one of the last, if not the last ingredient, so I think it's just there to help mask a scent than it is to add anything so it shouldn't be too irritating to those with sensitive skin. The full size (at least the one available at Target) is 3.4oz for $15, so this 0.5oz sample is worth about $2.20 (making it the least valuable, price-wise anways, sample in this box).
Overall, for my $15, I got 1 full sized product and 6 sample sizes (!!) with an overall value of about $56.33. Since this is a slightly more expensive box, I do expect a higher value of products, and I do think the September 2015 Allure Beauty Box delivered! I'm going to see what October and November brings until I make a decision on whether or not this box is really worth it, but things are looking pretty good for it.
Thanks for reading! <3
