Each box includes an information booklet that details each item included in the box.  What I like about the booklet is that the Allure editors detail the reasons they included each item in the box.

Klorane Shampoo with Mango Butter | 3.38 oz | Value $5 |

This is a hydrating shampoo that cleanses and nourishes your hair. It smells sweet, like ripe mango. It’s definitely a tropical scent which I love!

Pur~lisse Blue Lotus SPF 30 Essential Day Moisturizer | 5 oz | Value $20 |

Pur~lisse Blue Lotus Eye Adore Serum | .24 oz | Value $31 |

I absolutely love Pur~lisse products! I have sampled the Eye Adore Serum before and it is amazing. The moisturizer quickly became a new favorite of mine too. It’s a lightweight lotion that protects against UVA and UVB rays without clogging pores or leaving your skin slick.

Leaders 7 WONDERS HIMALAYAN CAMELLIA PORE MINIMIZING MASK | One Sheet Mask | Value $6 |

The mask I received helps to visibly minimize pores, refines rough skin, and soothes troubled and irritated skin. I love how soft my face felt after using this mask.

Kardashian Beauty Cabana Bronze Matte Bronzer  | .07 oz | Value $2 |

Unfortunately, my bronzer arrived damaged! However, I did contact customer service to request a replacement because I really wanted to try this bronzer out.

Julep Nail Color in Katie | FULL SIZE | Value $14 |

This nail color is an orchid iridescent chrome. I really love this color!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $78! I think that’s great for a $15 beauty box. I’m so happy with everything in my box this month and love the great mix of quality products.

What do you think of the Allure Beauty Box this month?

Have a beautiful day!

This BB cream is one of my favorites. Not only does it even out the skin tone by providing a healthy golden glow, but it also hydrates the skin, leaving it soft and smooth.


Overall, this month’s Birchbox was really good. I will use everything in the box. The value is approximately $32 which is pretty amazing for a $10 box!
