BeautyBar with Allure - December

A look inside my December Beauty Bar with Allure Box

$15 a month US

Vapour Organic Beauty Elixir Lip Gloss – Twinkle (303) 10.6ml (full size)

This is a sheer, cool pink colour that gives just a hint of colour on the lips.  Just enough for me!  Nice moisture, great texture and not sticky which works great for me.  And best of all, there is no chemicals in this baby to ingest.

Hanskin Premium Perfect Super Magic BB Cream SPF30 -10ml
Plus a sample of Hanskin Natural Skin tone BB

Oh….beauty balms or blemish balms.  One of my favorite things.  I’ve been onto this craze for years and find the originals from Korea are definitely superior to all the latest North American formulas – except for colour selection.  However, this one falls in the true Korean colour department.  Most of their BB’s have such a grayish tinge and this one is no different.  Unless I was going for a Casper look, (and Halloween is still months away) I will be staying far away from this.   

Murad Age Reform Time Release Retinol Concentrate 3ml

After cleansing – apply this concentrate to areas of concern (just your wrinkles) and then follow with moisturizer.  Research has shown that in 6 weeks, wrinkles will be diminished by 45%.  Have been testing it on my crows feet around the eyes and so far no irritation which makes me happy.  Won’t have enough to tell if there is actually a difference so just might purchase and find out. 

Philosophy Living Grace Shampoo, Bath & Shower Gel - 30ml

Smells of Neroli, Lily of the Valley & Warm Musk.  This is a 3 in 1 multi-tasker that can be used to cleanse, condition and soften both hair and skin.  Infused with shea butter and natural oils and has a nice clean, fresh smell that I really enjoy.

Delaney Wellness Rejuvenating Eye Cream - 10ml

Never heard of this brand, but what a great sample size that was sent.  Thank you very much!  A full size of this product (40ml) goes for $135 a pop!    Delaney Wellness is skincare straight from a vine in Texas.  Based around resveratrol, which is found in the skin of red grapes and has shown to have excellent cellular benefits.  Apply morning and night to the delicate skin around the eyes.

Great box this month Beauty Bar!  Lots of variety for skin, makeup and body.  Great new products to try and great sample sizes!
