A New Day

Taking a look at all of the things I've been missing

Breaking out the Beauty Box

on December 11, 2013

While I was out of town last week, my Allure Beauty Box arrived. I could hardly wait to come home and rip into it…. well except for the fact that I promised my girlfriend Nickie that since we were splitting it, I would wait until we could bust it out over a bottle of wine. Today was the magic day! We sat down and split a bottle of P.B. Hein Vineyards 2009 Trailblazer Red, caught up on some gossip and divided up the beauty box.

If you aren’t familiar, Allure offers the ridiculous deal of about $300 worth of products for $40 for about 2,500 lucky buyers a few times each year. I had heard of this amazing deal for a while, but wasn’t sure of when it actually went on sale. This time around, I was on it… I was number 500 (and something) right as the clock struck the on-sale time.

Here is a photo of everything that was included:


Here is what I picked:

AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion
E.L.F. Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder

FIRST AID BEAUTY® Ultra Repair® Cream
Julep Vixen Polish Duo (Missy)

Loreal Paris Extraordinaire by Colour Riche in Coral Encore

NEUTROGENA® Healthy Skin Primer

NOT YOUR MOTHER’S® Knotty to Nice™ Conditioning Detangler

ONE ‘N ONLY® Brazilian Tech™ Keratin De-Frizz Wand

RIMMEL Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner

SALLY HANSEN® Airbrush Legs® Liquid Makeup

SALLY HANSEN® Insta-Dri® Anti-Chip Top Coat

SMILE SCIENCES Teeth Whitening Pen
ZOYA PixieDust Nail Polish in Tomoko

The Mr. and I are currently giving the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream a go – it states it can be used for the face or elsewhere. This is nice and light, barely scented. I used it on my poor cracked hands and the Mr. went straight for the elbows. This container holds a whopping 6 oz of product and is estimated at $28 (Sephora.com). I’ve wanted to try the FAB products for quite a while and so far, my hands are pretty happy.
