So what type of box is the March box? What direction is the Allure Beauty Box headed?
Quick Run-Down: $15 a month beauty/makeup subscription service curated by Allure magazine; five or more deluxe-sized samples a month; wide range of products sampled, from color cosmetics to hair care to skin care and more; a lot of variance in box values, but Allure recently added a reward program for subscribers where they receive additional samples outside of the regular Beauty Box (not sure if this will be a monthly thing; we got extra samples in January, and then an entire extra Beauty Box in February, but no extra samples for March so far).
Overall, I got five deluxe-size samples and one (two if you count the L'Oreal lip color) full size product. The total value of the products in the March 2016 Allure Beauty Box (minus the lip color) is $37.59, which is a little more than double what I paid for this box.
So, what kind of box is it? It's definitely a box on the lower-end of value, both monetary and in usefulness (though this is not Allure's fault; if I wasn't allergic to argan oil and able to use the hair care products, then I would use every single product in this box, besides the L'Oreal lip color). I'm hoping that Allure sends us some more bonus samples this month since that seems to be the strength of the Allure Beauty Box service, but seeing as it's nearly the end of March, I'm not too sure that they will. I'm content with this box, but I'm leaning more towards being disappointed with it than I am to being happy with it. I have looked up spoilers for the April box, and I have to say, if Allure doesn't send more bonus samples, I'm not sure if I'm going to be happy with that box either. We'll have to wait and see until it comes!
Thanks for reading! <3
