Hi, guys, I'm here with the Allure Beauty Box unboxing for May 2020! This month's box was stuffed full of skincare products from Skin Inc., AHC, Acure, VDL, Curology, & When. I'll walk you through it + I've got discount codes for some of the brands included & FULL SPOILERS for June's box. Let's unbox it!

Allure Beauty Box - May 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:

  • Skin Inc: ALLURE20 to receive 20% off your order (5/1/20 - 8/1/20)
  • Acure: ALLURE25 to receive 25% off your order (5/1/20 - 6/30/20)
  • When: ALLURE20 to receive 20% off regular priced items (5/1/20 - 7/10/20)

First out of the box is a deluxe sample of Acure Resurfacing Glycolic & Unicorn Root Cleanser (4 oz. is $12.99 so this sample is worth approx. $2.20).

"No unicorns were harmed in the making of this product. This solution offers mild alpha hydroxy acid (glycolic and lactic) resurfacing exfoliation for improved skin radiance."

This cleanser sounds interesting. It's not only a cleanser but an exfoliator, too, so it can cut a step out of your skincare routine. I'm super excited to try this one out!

Next out is a full-sized AHC Essential Real Eye Cream for Face ($28.99).

"Aesthetic Hydration Cosmetics (AHC) Essential Eye Cream is a premium concentrated all-in-one eye cream to be used as a moisturizer for the whole face...[it] uses unique microemulsion technology to absorb easily into skin and provide nourishment...[and] has anti-aging properties with a proprietary blend of vitamins and peptides that help reduce the appearance of fine lines."

So, apparently, this is a breakout Korean product that is just now coming to the US (and is available at Target). It's formulated as an eye cream but can be used all over the face and is recommended for sensitive and mature skin. I like that this is another one that can cut an extra step from your skincare routine by being able to combine an eye cream and moisturizer in one.

Next out is a sample-sized Curology Smooth Sailing Moisturizer ($29.99 per month for a 3-piece set (shipped every 2 months), so I'm estimating a $5 value for this sample).

"The moisturizer by Curology is a cool, layerable moisturizer for normal to oily skin. Relax and let your skin soak up its light, gel texture—like putting a cloud on your face, some say. It’s non-clogging, breathable, and buildable, so use as much as you like."

I received the cleanser in another box and still haven't tried it so I guess I can try them together now. In the last post, I researched the pricing and it went up from $19.99 per month to $29.99 per month for the custom serum + cleanser + moisturizer. I thought it was a great deal until I just saw that you only receive one set every 2 months, so boo. That makes this skincare set $59.90 + $4.95 S&H.

It's not crazy-expensive but at this time, raising prices with record levels of unemployment and people just trying to survive? It's gross. I may include their product in this post because it came in the box, but I won't be linking to or promoting them.

Next out is a sample-sized VDL Lumilayer Primer (1.01 oz. is $32 so this sample is worth approx. $5.33).

"Lumilayer Primer, a make-up perfecting primer formulated with VDL's trademark Lumilayer Prismatic Pearls that absorb light and use the light's ability to reflect to create an iridescent glow and translucent, glass-like skin."

Even though I'm flush with primers right now, I'm interested enough to bump this to the top of my "To Try" list. Glass skin is (still) in so I'm excited to try this one!

Next out is a full-sized My Daily Dose of Glow from Skin Inc. Supplement Bar ($65).

"A...serum specially designed to revive the look of dull and aging skin for a youthful complexion with an enviable glow. Vitamin A...helps to improve the appearance of skin tone and treat under-eye circles. Chlorella extract...tackles skin dullness, helps reduce the appearance of dark spots, and evens skin tone for clearer, brighter-looking skin. The super-serum contains hydrolyzed molecules of Hyaluronic Acid for a hydrated, smooth, and supple appearance."

This serum sounds like everything I want in one bottle! Besides that, it will look so pretty on my vanity. Can't wait to try it!

Finally, last out is a When Glamour Base Sheet Mask ($7).

"When you want your makeup to look great and to last longer, prepare your skin with When Glamour Base for smooth and supple-looking skin...The soft, jelly-like mask sheet is made from coconut juice and is infused with light, comforting serum. When Glamour Base contains adenosine, collagen, and peptides to help improve skin elasticity. All When masks contain hyaluronic acid and ginseng extracts to help keep skin healthy."

Apparently, this mask is like a primer to prep your skin for makeup or a big night out. I don't know when that will happen for us again but I'm psyched to see how it performs!

So that was the full May Beauty Box from Allure! This one had a total of 6 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 really great value of about $113.52! 

What do you think about this month's box?
