AUGUST 2016 ALLURE SAMPLE SOCIETY REVIEW

I was excited to see my Allure Sample Society Box in my mailbox. I usually love this subscription because they include well known high-end brands. They include deluxe size samples and sometimes FULL-SIZE products. A very detailed product description card is included. It is one of the best description cards I have seen. Allure Sample Society is now curated exclusively through Allure. They use to be curated through BeautyBar.

Cost: $15.00/month

Ships: To US only


FIRST IMPRESSION:

I love how well the Allure Sample Society Boxes come packaged! Everything looked so nice! I also really love the brands that were included this month. There were 8 products this month! I couldn’t wait to dig in!


REVIEW OF ITEMS:

Freeze 24-7 Anti-Aging Eye Serum

Freeze 24-7 Anti-Aging Eye Serum

This is a sample size! I have received a sample of this eye serum before. It is very pricey ($115 for FULL SIZE). I liked it but wouldn’t buy it for $115. It wasn’t a miracle by any means. I will either save this sample for a backup or give it away.


Pur~Lisse Blue Lotus Balancing Moisturizer

Pur~Lisse Blue Lotus Balancing Moisturizer

This is a sample size. I have also received a sample of this moisturizer before. I love Pur~Lisse and I like the Blue Lotus line. It is a lightweight moisturizer that is perfect for the daytime. I will save this sample for traveling.


Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50

Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50

This is a sample size. I have received this product a few times and I am not a fan. It feels really sticky on my skin. I do like using it to wet my eyeshadow brushes. However, I don’t use it to set my makeup.


Mally Mattewand Eye Brightener ($25)

This is a FULL SIZE! I am so excited they included a $25 product this month. I love Mally and this product sounds awesome. It is a dual-ended pencil and shadow brush that can be used to brighten the eye area. I really can’t wait to try it and I love that it has two ends.


Cargo Swimmables Eye Pencil in Pebble Beach 

This is a deluxe size sample. It is a very deep dark-brown shade. I am glad that it isn’t black (even though it looks pretty black to me). It is supposed to be VERY waterproof. I can’t wait to test it.


Wet Brush Midi Brush

Wet Brush Midi Brush ($8.99) 

This is a FULL SIZE! I have the mini size and now I have the midi size. I really love these wet brushes. They do an amazing job at detangling the hair. I will definitely use it!


Garnier Whole Blends Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner

Garnier Whole Blends Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner

These are samples. I really love this line and I love that Allure included a bonus in this box. I will save these for traveling because I really do love them!


OVERALL IMPRESSION:

This month’s Sample Society Box was AMAZING! I am beyond impressed! It is one of the best boxes of the year. Allure has really stepped up their game this year and I am loving it. I loved the brands that were included and I loved the detailed information card. I love seeing exactly why they included an item and their take on it. They have really been stepping up their game with this year’s boxes. The value is definitely there. I love that they include very well known brands. I am excited about the eye brightener, brush, and eyeliner. What do you think of this box? Are you grabbing one? Let me know in the comments below!
