Hi, guys, I'm here with the Allure Beauty Box unboxing for April 2020! It was stuffed full of products from Viktor & Rolf, Dr. Jart+, Thrive Causemetics, Purlisse, Akar Skin, Eva NYC, and LUÉ. I'll walk you through it + I've got discount codes for some of the brands included & FULL SPOILERS for May's box. Let's unbox it!

Allure Beauty Box - April 2020

When you open it, there's a little magazine right on top telling you all about the products inside and every month there are exclusive discount codes included in the booklet for some of the box products. I always share these just in case someone can use them!

This month's codes are:

  • Viktor & Rolf: ALLURE to receive a Flowerbomb Twist & Spray Travel Set ($120 value) on orders of $150 or more 😲 (4/1/20 - 5/31/20)
  • Thrive Causemetics: ALLURE15 to receive 15% off your purchase (4/1/20 - 6/20/20)
  • Eva NYC: EVANYCALLURE20 to receive 20% off your purchase (4/1/20 - 5/31/20)
  • LUÉ: ALLURE20 to receive 20% off your purchase (4/1/20 - 5/31/20)
  • Akar Skin: ALLURE2020 to receive 10% off your purchase (4/1/20 - 5/31/20)
  • Purlisse: ALLUREMASKS for 20% off full-size/full-price items only, excludes kits, bundles, and samples (4/1/20 - 5/31/20)

First out of the box is a deluxe sample of Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb L'eau de Parfum (1.7 oz. is $115 so this sample is worth approx. $16.10).

"This veritable garden party in a bottle is an intoxicating perfume for women that is an enchanting whirl of cattleya, jasmine, and rose perfumes. Grounded in patchouli and vanilla, Flowerbomb is an addictive women’s fragrance of lavish beauty and voluptuous sensuality."

Flowerbomb is one of my all-time favorite perfumes, so I love getting a little deluxe sample. (Isn't it just so darn cute?!) I love these samples for traveling with so I don't have to worry about breaking a large, expensive bottle in my suitcase.

Next out is a full-sized LUÉ Balance Hydrating & Calming Serum ($15).

"BALANCE is a hydrating & calming serum which firms and tones, while controlling oil and shine to minimize pores. Made with a perfect concentration of sodium hyaluronate, this gentle and effective oil-free moisturizer can be used on all skin types to increase moisture retention and counter the effect of environmental aggressors."

Hmmm. So this is a serum that is also a moisturizer? As someone with extremely dry skin, I'm down with that. Anything that does double duty is a plus in my book.

Next out is a sample of the Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment (1.7 oz. is $52 so this sample is worth approx. $5.20).

"This all-in-one treatment includes a color-changing capsule to cover blemishes and neutralize redness, restoring fatigued skin for a vibrant appearance. The formula features Tiger Grass (Centella Asiatica) to help heal sensitive skin exhibiting inflammation, irritation or discomfort."

Dr. Jart+ is an awesome K-beauty brand and this formula sounds amazing for blemishes. I just have to point out that this is the trickiest false-bottom sample I've ever received; Not only does it have a false bottom, but it has false sides! 🤣 I wish companies would just be a little less wasteful and put their samples in a smaller jar.

Next out is a sample of the Akar Skin Balance Toner (2.4 oz. is $55 so this sample is worth approx. $23.57).

"Hydrate and rebalance your skin with this lightweight toning mist from AKAR Skin. Formulated to strengthen the acid mantle layer of your skin by restoring pH to optimum level and keeping environmental pathogens out, this mist makes skin look noticeably softer and more luminous."

Toners are used to restore your pH balance after cleansing but honestly, I've only ever really loved a few toners and that's because they do something important in addition to pH balancing, like chemically exfoliating. I like that this one is hydrating as well.

Next out is a sample of the Eva NYC Mane Magic 10-in-1 Primer (6 oz. is $12 so this is worth approx. $2.03).

"Infused with Argan Oil and Sunflower Seed Oil to give your hair its daily dose of vitamins and nutrients, this multitasking formula does it all: detangles, reduces frizz, strengthens, softens, cuts drying time, adds shine, nourishes, smooths, and protects against thermal and UV damage. With 10 benefits in one spray you'll save precious drying time AND vanity space."

The full-size is only $12, so they could have included this in the box as a full-size product. Having said that, I've heard good things about Eva NYC and I love a good multitasking product, so I'll be giving this one a go.

Next out is a full-sized Thrive Causemetics Long Wearing + Plumping Lip Liner in Valisia ($20).

"Prime, line and plump with our luxuriously creamy, long-wearing and waterproof lip liner. Powered by Revitalizing Lip Quench Technology + Semi-Permanent Micropigment Technology, our lip liner fills + plumps, while revealing bold, hydrating color that’s feather-and-fade-proof."

Subscribers will receive either Valisia (pomegranate) or Kackie (mocha).

I'm so glad I got this shade and will be giving it a try. It's a bit too bright for me but I'm intrigued by the claims that it plumps and is long-wearing, which is a "must" for me if I'm taking the time and energy to use a lip color product.

Finally, last out is a Purlisse Watermelon Energizing Sheet Mask (a pack of six is $18 so this mask is worth $3).

I'm happy to get this because I missed out on getting the Purlisse Watermelon Mask in a previous FFF subscription box. I've been wanting to try them for a while and you guys know I love a good sheet mask. 😁

So that was the full April Beauty Box from Allure! This one had a total of 7 products in it this month and 2 (technically 3 with the sheet mask) were full-sized. 

The box costs $15 per month and this month's box had a value of approximately $84.90! 

What do you think about this month's box?
