Allure Beauty Box July 2018

1. SUNDAY RILEY Luna Sleeping Night Oil

I was SO excited to try this product because I’ve read tons of reviews calling it a holy grail item and I love Sunday Riley.  I have to say I was a bit underwhelmed after trying it.  I used it four consecutive nights and I didn’t really see any difference except my skin felt a bit oily when I woke up in the morning.  I had high hopes but I’m not loving this product.

2. HARMONY ROSE PETAL FACIAL MASK

This ultra concentrated toning gel smells amazing!  I definitely think it helped to calm my skin and make it look toned and even, but I am confused by the price point because I think it’s a little high for this product.  I’m not familiar with the Feel brand, but in this price range I think there are other products I would rather purchase.

3. Olay Regenerist Whip Facial Moisturizer

I’ve talked about my love for this product before (read about it here), it’s lightweight and amazing!

4. Doucce ULTRA PRECISION EYELINER

This blue eyeliner is a shade of electric blue that isn’t really my style.  If you are looking for a statement item, this would be a good fit, but for me this doesn’t really fit my usual aesthetic.

5. MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Color Pencil: Eye, Lip & Brow Pencil

I don’t usually wear red on my lips but I do really like this shade and it seems like a quality product.  I am never disappointed with anything I try from Makeup Forever.  I think the combo eye/lip/brow pencil is interesting in theory, but I don’t think it really makes sense in reality.  This red would be great for lips, but I can’t imagine why they would market it to be used three ways.

6. The Organic Pharmacy Antioxidant Lip Balm

I love that this product is all natural because I try to avoid harmful chemicals where possible.  However, I don’t think that the product warrants the $21.50 price tag.  It feels good on my lips but it goes away fairly quickly and I don’t feel that it provides much lasting hydration.  I think for this price, there are much better products out there.

7. DERMA E Online Only Sun Protection Mineral Face Powder SPF 30

I stopped using mineral foundations a few years ago because I found that overall they made my skin look dry and dull.  I like the concept of sun protection that this product offers, but initially I wasn’t too excited about it.  I gave it a try and was pleasantly surprised.  I love the color, it was a perfect match for me, and the consistency didn’t make my skin look dry.  I’ve been reading quite a bit about the benefits of mineral makeup (check out this article from Byrdie) so I am definitely going to give this product a try long term.

8. OUAI Leave-In Conditioner

I’ve been compiling some Ouai products to test out for a dedicated blog post because I’ve heard so many great things about this brand.  (More on that coming soon).  This leave-in IS AMAZING.  My hair is incredibly dry and most leave ins aren’t intense enough to provide me with any hydration but after using this product, my hair feels like silk.  Without a doubt I will be purchasing this and incorporating it into my routine.
