Sit Down and Get Comfortable:
So my year of Glossy with that awesome deal a year ago has ended and I need new heavy duty sturdy box for gifts. So I it up traded up for Allure with its red box paying $10 for a half a year (Black Friday special). I have occasionally ordered Allure boxes when the spoiler contents “allured” me so I was happy to pick up a longer subscription with them. I was thinking that my first box would be December but in true subscription box deal form, I got a November box.
Here is the box!
Here is the booklet that I will somewhat read and reference too!
There were two variations and this is the variation that I received as we take our first peek into the box!
And they were not glitter nail polishes (it’s a long story but maybe having girls made glitter an obsession)!
Let’s whip out these sample babies!!!
Awesome sauce! I love Klorane (and its sulfates) and this is not a wimpy size! This smells nice not as awesome as the mango but I see squeakiness in ma hair in my future!
I had bought and used up a full size of this so it made me happy to see a travel version to bring me back to the time when the Barney’s Spring GWP pricepoint was a little more reasonable. Disregarding what the booklet says, this really smells like what I envision a Icelandic Moonflower to smell like.
Do they have even have moonflowers in Iceland!?!
Again my favorite kind of subscription box perfume is in mini form. I pulled the silver part upwards very gingerly to take a sniff and pat a dab on my inner arm. I am glad to report that it was hard to extract this perfume into said inner arm.
Because it really sucks when a fragrance pours itself in one’s inner arm.
This fragrance also complements the Red Flower Icelandic Moonflower Body Lotion.
Instead of tossing this in my army of sheet masks in the refrigerator, I decided to pop it open and plant it on ma face whilst blogging.
The actual sheet mask looked like it was dyed in tea leaves and it was wrapped in this clear mesh thinge you see above.
It’s like the weirdness of the dyed tea leaves was the marketing explanation for the word “alone” in the product description.
I enjoyed it. I used the leftover essence on ma hands, knees, shoulders, and toes. But I had to wash off the essence off my face it started to burn.
Also the alone part as I blogged in alone-ness.
Also sampled before. Nothing special but I applied it after I took off the Bonvivant Alone Sheet Mask. And again after I washed off the essence of the mask on my face. It smelled faintly of a old lady but her scent quickly dissipated. Very moisturizing and perfect for cold weather.
I am pretty sure that I received a full size from Birchbox and then somewhere else.
Perhaps from Birchbox again bahahahaha.
Regardless, here is a picture with obligatory kitty swatch.
I am happy with this box. It inspired me to do a facial. I also liked how the body lotion complemented the fragrance and how the face mask complemented the face lotion. And the size for Klorane shampoo is awesome!!!
What do you think of this month’s Allure Beauty Box? Do variations drive you cray cray too?
