Allure Sample Society Boxes

Allure Sample Society is still one of my favorite boxes. Each box comes beautifully and carefully wrapped.  The following is a review for June through October's boxes. I will try from now on to post reviews as the boxes come. 

My favorite product of this box was the Allure & Butter London nail polish. It is a gorgeous purple with a hint of blue. It also included Malin + Goletz Peppermint Shampoo, Nuance Salma Hayek AM/PM Anti-Aging Super Cream, Bumble and Buble Grooming Creme Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner and Eau Thermale Avene, Cleanance Gel Cleanser.

 I have tried the super cream and loved it. It is not too greasy and absorbs quickly into the skin. It's great for travel because it's small and can be used for day and night. Thermale Avene cleanser was also great because I love their facial mist. And I was in need of a cleanser. 

Tangle Teezer brush at first glance I was excited to add a new travel brush to my collection. This past weekend I visited my in laws in Pennsylvania and was able to try it out. I like how it's shaped but hate the way it feels on my scalp. I do not enjoy scalp massages! 

The next products are Pixi by Petra Glow Tonic Alterna Replenishing Moisture Milk, Jane Iredale Facial Smooth Affair Facial Primer and Brightener, Erno Laszlo Firmarine Bar Soap and Soap & Glory Pillow Plump XXL Lipgloss Pinkwell Shade. Thank to Allure and the other two boxes I subscribe to I have a full set of their products. The milk itself is light and does not weigh hair down. It is perfect to combine with a leave in conditioner or with gel to refresh curls. I loved the shade of the gloss however I do not need to plump my lips. The lipgloss stings and I did not care for it. I gifted it to someone else.

Allure and Butter London Polish 

Cotz Face Sunscreen SPF 40 in Natural Skin Tone, Completely Bare Wax Strips, Lauren B Beauty Nail Couture in Polo Lounge Punch, ESalon Perfect Ending Leave in Conditioner, St. Tropez Self Tan Express and E.L.F. Studio Small Stiple Brush.  I already have a Cotz sunscreen sample. I used it a few times and it does work well.  Of course I was excited for the nail polish because I have a whole mini closet full of them. A cute nail polish can transform any look. I was also excited for the leave in conditioner because as a curly hair gal I use a minimum of two plus products to keep my hair in check. They included the self tanner which as a Latina is of no use to me. I gifted it to my sister in law who loves to tan. The brush is perfect and I will be replacing my old blush brush with this one.  

 The below pictures is content from the October Box 

Cargo Eye Shadow in Pasadena. I am not a fan of this color, it is way too light and does not look good with my skin tone. 

I was excited to receive a Rituals product because I had their foaming body wash and loved it. This handcream is a nice sized sample and the scent is delicious 
 !!! I carry it in my work bag. 

Bumble and Bumble All-Style Blow Dry Cream. I have not tried yet. 

Jouer Daily Clarifying Treatment Oil 

Kryolan Lipstick Matt in Aurora, Eos and Nike. I love all these shades since all all flattering for any skin tone. I love the bright pink and orange red. I will definitely try them soon. 

An overview of all the mini mags included. This is another great feature of Allure. The mini mag provides the names of the products, price of the full sized versions, where to buy them and instructions on how to use. 


  1. Wow, I would definitely sign up for this Allure Box for next year!! :)


  2. Would you say allure society has better samples than Birchbox?
