Maybe it is just me, but I pay $15 dollars a month as a treat for myself and am never really disappointed in the allure box. I figure I always get to try something that I may not have been otherwise willing to try (for the cost). I realized a while back, when I did start to get disappointed, that I was usually just feeding off of negative comments. Sure some things don’t work for me, others I have found to be a holy grail. I give away some as gifts but I usually always feel as though I get my money’s worth.
You’ll see instant results with this wrinkle cream. As soon as you’ve fully applied it, you’ll notice some tightness. But over time, you’ll also notice that the overall effect of the cream will soften your wrinkles and smooth out your fine lines. The Progenix Retinol cream boosts and restores your collagen production creating a more youthful skin appearance.
Our testers thought this cream had the best texture, scent and absorption out of the eight day creams we tested. "It was very light and went on creamy," raved one fan. In the lab, got great scores for moisturizing skin and even showed improvements in UV spots. Good to know: Four testers mentioned that the product tends to "crumble up" or "flake off" after makeup application.
Here’s another way your fridge can come in handy: Store a few metal spoons inside. When you find yourself with a little free time, perhaps while you’re watching an episode of your favorite TV show, grab two chilled spoons from the fridge and place them on your under-eye bags. The spoons will work in a similar manner to your refrigerated eye cream, helping to de-puff.
“This is the most hydrating and potent wrinkle cream that is an absolute must-do with your nightly anti-aging regimen,” said Karuna Chani, a New York-based makeup artist whose high-profile clients include Caroline Scheufele, co-president of Chopard. “It’s incredibly effective because it's scientifically formulated with an amino-peptide complex that promotes cell turnover, skin elasticity and healing. After 15 years of working with all skin types, I can’t stress enough the importance of a good moisturizer to help keep the skin youthful and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.”
I’m happy to see that there are several of you that are loving the spoilers for January. Now I loved the December box but I’m definitely not feeling the January or the February box lol. I’m not complaining because I know come March I may love the box. It’s a subscription box you can’t make everyone happy 100% of the time and you know what I accept that and I am ok with that. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year!
"Believe it or not, the best anti-aging steal under $10 is petroleum jelly. Just like any other part of the body, your skin is made up of cells. And skin cells are made up of water. If your skin is not getting the sufficient amount of water, the lack of hydration will present itself by turning your skin dry, tight and flaky. Dry skin has less resilience and is more prone to wrinkling. It also loses its function as a protective barrier to keep moisture in and environmental stressors out — like allergens, dust and bacteria. Skin cells are layered like bricks and dry skin creates gaps in these layers, allowing stressors in. So protecting this barrier is crucial to keeping your skin looking young,” says Dr. Julie Russak, M.D., volunteer facility at Mount Sinai Hospital.
Due to the lack of statistically significant clinical trials proving the effectiveness of topical retinoids as “anti-wrinkle” creams, I recommend applying sunscreen daily to reverse signs of photo-aging and to prevent fine lines and wrinkles. I would avoid using “anti-wrinkle” creams until more definitive scientific evidence proves that the benefits outweigh the risks.  In the meantime, think of all the thousands of dollars you will save on not having to buy anti-wrinkle creams.
This box looks amazing! They gave us that full sized Sunday Riley CEO cream last January and now this January we get a full brand new Dave oil from Sunday Riley! That alone makes the box for me. Along with the other SR product and eyeshadow stick, this is a home run all the way around. They’re definitely starting off the year absolutely killing it and beating out all the other sub boxes with this curation!

Alas, under-eye bags are not a feature that improves with age. Now, many people get dark circles when they have a bad night’s sleep–occasionally, but not severely. I’ve had a combination of under-eye bags *and* dark circles since college. If you’re wondering what that even looks like, imagine curtain valances (the half-moon drapes that top your curtains). Thank you, Dad.
To get the most out of your Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, you will want to first gently cleanse your skin and apply the Elemis Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift Serum. We recommend you cleanse your skin using the Elemis Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser, which you can get here from Amazon, which is designed to be used for anti-aging. After you have applied the serum, you can gently massage the marine cream in.
The best bang for your buck, No7 worked as well as or better than pricier options. This Good Housekeeping Seal-holder scored nearly on par with the winner and earned the best marks for smoothing skin's texture. Testers described it as "lightweight," and said the serum made skin "look younger" and wrinkles "less visible," though some reported slight irritation. In our lab analysis, it received strong scores for improving firmness and texture and diminishing pores.
"I've been using this product since my early 40s. I am now 53 and am told I look like I'm in my 30s. It really is the best retinol serum I've ever used. It is a retinol product, so it may sting a bit at first as your skin gets used to it. If that happens I recommend using once a week at first and then stepping up of the frequency until you're able to use it on a daily basis. I have very sensitive skin and this process worked for me." —T.Long
The NuFace Collagen Booster with Copper Complex is especially great for those suffering from lackluster or dull skin which, let’s be honest, can happen to even the best of us every now and then. Over time, the pollutants, chemicals, and harsh radicals that our skin come into contact with each and every day can wear down the natural glow of our skin, making those pesky wrinkles that much more noticeable.

The best under-eye bag treatment is, in fact, not a cream at all. It’s caffeinated black tea, and it’s better than any fancy, beautifully packaged cream that I have ever tried. Here’s the method I follow, which I found on a skin-care forum long ago: I steep two bags in warm water for a few minutes, then allow them to cool for 5 to 15 minutes in the refrigerator. When the bags are nice and cold, I plop them over my eyes and lie down for ten minutes or so. When I remove the tea bags, my eye bags are totally gone as well. It’s that easy.
Hyaluronic acid, a humectant that holds up to 1000 times its weight in water, can "plump" wrinkled skin, giving it the appearance of diminished wrinkles. A top anti-wrinkle eye cream, Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Intensive Eye Contour Cream contains Super Bio Hyaluronic Acid N for intense moisture; it also has burnet extract to revitalize cells and counteract loss of firmness.

We’ve said it before, and we will say it again: when it comes to anti-aging creams, vitamins matter. That’s why we love that the Mario Badescu Vital with Collagen and Elastin for Men is overflowing with intense anti-oxidants and Vitamin A to nourish your skin and restore its natural, youthful glow. In fact, this collagen cream can be used daily, or overnight to achieve great results.

I never received my December box also… they told me I never paid for it when I called into customer service and talked to one of the customer service reps and gave her my card number. They told.me they were out of the December box. I just got a email about my refund and then one about my January box… I wonder if they are refunding people about the December box or a missing product… hopefully they work everything out soon. I never received my snack nation boxes also…
The very best way to tackle wrinkles is to prevent them in the first place. Everyone we spoke to — dermatologists and chemists alike — noted that the most important wrinkle-fighting product you should own is sunscreen. And not just any sunscreen: a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 (as we learned when reviewing the best sunscreen). Stick with SPF 30; wear it every single day; and reapply as often as the instructions tell you to.

These types of alcohol evaporate very quickly. This can have some benefits, but it also means that it dries out your skin, weakening its protective barrier. Percentages of alcohol concentrate are rarely listed on lists of ingredients, but a good rule of thumb is to check how far up they are mentioned. The higher up the list, typically the greater the concentration of that ingredient.
I decided to subscribe to Allure B. Box because I thought it would be a great way to receive samples and beauty products to try out. I started Oct. 5 2018 and they charged me right away. I never heard back on shipping for that month. Oct 16 I sent an email and on Oct 18 I received a tracking email. Needless to say I received the box very late Oct. I decided to cancel, with an email, I was offered to please stay and they would do the next “4 boxes at $10 ea.” Instead of $15. I accepted, this was Oct 31. On Nov. 1st they charged my card for the Nov. box. ALL November I waited, no emails, no information. I got an email just advising a “November Round up” for those who did get the box can review the products. I sent an email no response, so I decided to call. I spoke to a rep saying she didn’t understand why I had received one. On their end it showed it had not left “the warehouse” but she’d message a supervisor who’d get back to me.
• I did not like anything in my box: Our editors work to inform you of and introduce you to the best products each month, and while Allure is the beauty expert, we understand that everyone's beauty routine is different. Some products may be a better fit to some more than others, but that's part of the fun and part of the service our editors provide: helping you learn about new products. We encourage you to share your samples with your friends, and hopefully next month's box will include products you will enjoy! There are some great forums online for sample exchanging, and we hope you reach out to other subscribers to swap for something you'll love.
