Hyaluronic acid (HA) gives you short-term benefits while you wait patiently for retinoids and AHAs to kick in. Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, and works by drawing water into the cells, making skin look plumper and more full of life. And hyaluronic acid is the latest and greatest humectant out there, each of its molecules capable of holding 800 to 1,000 times their weight in water. That’s a lot of plumping power. Even more effective than HA is sodium hyaluronate, a derivative that has smaller molecules, making it better at sinking deeply into the skin.
Hope you got all your boxes. It does hurt a little knowing you ordered a box in December through Amazon and got it early January, when I’ve been subscribed for a year through Allure and didn’t get mine till January 30 because they ran out. I know it was a popular box so they got a lot of new orders in, but they should’ve filled the old orders first. Does anyone know how long Amazon’s been selling Allure’s and other beauty boxes? I wish I’d known that when I first subscribed.
Compared to Amazon Lixury beauty this is a no brainer. Literally, there are 6 full size or significant samples of premium product. I will use many, but doubt I will shell out 68 dollars for face oil. You will get good stuff. If you are a fan of cosmetics, go for it. If and when I come across stuff I know is wrong for me, I will save and regift in a goody bag for the charities I support for door prizes or things of that nature. Yesssss

Did you know that smoking cigarettes dries out and weakens the skin on your face as well as your whole body? It also causes premature aging around the eyes in particular. The chemicals found in cigarettes are toxic and can cause irritation around the eyes, which could result in dark circles or undereye bags in addition to a wrinkled, droopy appearance. If addiction has got you in its grips, you may want to try some natural approaches to quitting smoking.
I just can’t let go of Allure…I’ve got rid of all the others I had due to makeup and skincare overload but I just can’t let go of Allure. They have really stepped it up this past year and if they keep it going consistently like they have I don’t see myself getting rid of it anytime soon. I know you can’t make everyone happy but for me Allure really stepped up their game in 2018 and I was happy with each box I received. I hope their consistency carries through to 2019 as I will be looking forward to some more awesome Beauty Boxes from Allure.
If you're often tired, stressed out, or sleep-deprived, then you most likely have had under-eye bags before. Under-eye bags are unsightly, making us look haggard, sick and old. Luckily, there are tons of products on the market to reduce eye bags, and many of them are inexpensive! Here are 5 cheap products that dermatologist swear by to get rid of under-eye bags.
As is the case with most of the body’s natural processes, collagen production naturally slows down a bit as we age. When collagen levels drop, the elasticity of our skin (and the other parts of our bodies that depend on this vital protein) soften and become more fragile. Decreased collagen levels can lead to everything from wrinkles and fine lines to increased bone fragility and de-pigmented hair color (that’s where those stubborn grays and, if we let them, eventual white hairs come from!).
Successful subscription-box companies, including Birchbox, Dollar Shave Club and Stitch Fix, have taken a “customer-first approach,” said Tien Tzuo, founder and CEO of Zuora, a software company specializing in subscription businesses, in an email. These companies have also created “fun, compelling subscription experiences that get smarter and smarter over time.” Part of that, Tzuo said, was the importance of a consumer brand knowing and understanding their customer.
Same here. When I signed up the Sunday Riley item didn’t show up on the confirmation page, so I emailed them. I said that I do not want the box if I am not getting the gift, since it was the only reason I subscribed. I received no reply and no gift. I also referred a friend and should have gotten the drunk elephant gift as well, but I didn’t. Customer service is completely ignoring me.
Nowadays, there are masks for everything. Face, hair, lips, and even eyes! If you’re wondering why all those masks are necessary, it’s because there isn’t a one size fits all product. You probably won’t want your favorite face mask getting to get too close to your eyes, right? So, you need a mask that’s specifically designed for the under-eye area. Eye masks are typically cushy, apostrophe-shaped sheets that go underneath your eyes, right where your under-eye bags happen to be.
L’Occitane claims this cream is made from a flower they discovered in Corsica named the Imortelle that, like the name may suggest, never fades. They also claim that 85% of women who use this product have younger-looking skin. We’re naturally skeptical about most statistics a company volunteers like these, but the reviews suggest we’re wrong to be so. One reviewer was even asked if she’s “had work done” – there must be something here!
I agree completely. I’m pretty bent about waiting this long particularly when they took my money way earlier than ever before! 99% of the time it’s always on the 9th regardless of the day of the week in the entire almost 2 years I’ve been a loyal subscriber. This month, I was charged on the 4th. What they should have done is send out emails the day they realized the nail polish was going to be late, send the boxes the way they were and then ship the nail polish separately or in next month’s box. Their supplier issue isn’t my fault nor is it my fault that they advertised the living daylights out of this box and now can’t keep up. I do believe they are lying. If my neighbor who is a new subscriber, (this is her 1st month), got both of her boxes, where is mine? She got both on the same day, Amazon did not have the polish but the through allure did? 🤔 New customers got there’s and so did MSA but not their long time, loyal customers? Bad way to handle it
I got scammed by Allure BeatyBox. I ordered the box just to get the full size Sunday Riley CEO serum. Well I never received it. When I called they said that they sent it. I was like okay where is the tracking number and they said they didn’t have one. So there is no actual proof that they sent it. Which, I doubt they did since many others had this problem. They then offered me a $20 face wash as a sub which is basically a bait and switch. No thanks my face wash is elemis. So, they were like okay we’ll have a manager call you. Well that was like 3 or 4 days ago, so I’m pretty sure they blew me off. I’m cancelling today. This box is not worth the stress.
