I signed up on Dec 17, money came out of my account on Dec 18, but I still have no box. I haven’t’ even been charged for January yet and I’ve heard not a peep from Allure. I’ll be calling to cancel on my lunch break. Seems to me as they are picking and choosing who they will email and who they won’t. Going a month without hearing anything is not cool. Since they haven’t shipped anything, they can just give me my money back.
What causes them? Puffy eyes are the result of temporary swelling that is often caused by seasonal allergies. Puffiness can also arise if you’ve had too much salt or alcohol, which can leave you dehydrated—that leads to water retention, which in turn leads to swelling in the face. Lack of sleep makes puffy eyes worse, too, because of the pooling of fluid in the area. As a result, puffiness is often worse in the morning and resolves itself by the afternoon as the accumulated fluid drains with the help of gravity and time.
"After hearing my five-year-old ask about the lines on my forehead, I decided it was time to be more proactive with my skincare. I’ve always hesitated to try new facial products, especially lotions, because I have sensitive skin that was acne prone in my youth. Now at almost 40, my skin is quite a bit less problematic, but starting to show signs of aging. I’ve been using this now for a few months and it’s working well!" —CincyMom
Not only is the NuFACE Collagen Booster Copper Complex great for regenerating your skin’s thickness and density, but it can also even reduce the appearance of large pores and give you a more even look! If you have large pores yourself, then you know just how big of a headache those enlarged crevices can be when it comes to makeup application. No matter how hard you may try or what primer you use, your ginormous pores always seem to be the star of the show!
You are paying for a sub box that is supposed to be a mystery with a value of $50 or more and 5 products. They don’t owe us any other spoilers or specific products, unless we sign up for a special deal like the S.R. promo or Caudalie. Lots of boxes do variations and some of them don’t release them until after it’s too late to cancel. Allure is giving variation info a full 2 weeks before the deadline to cancel. And they are giving us a bonus item…
Now, I know there’s nothing productive about sitting around complaining about “flaws” that aren’t actually flaws. We are aware of the way we’ve internalized idealized standards of beauty—and that articles about how to “fix” them can reinforce those standards. (The irony is not lost on me as I write this very article.) And yet there we were, comparing notes about our particular eye concerns, wondering what was causing them and what we could do about them, when suddenly we realized: We don’t actually know what we’re talking about. One person said she had “puffy eyes.” Another rued the “bags” under hers. We thought we were all talking about the same thing, but maybe we weren’t. We started to wonder: What are puffy eyes versus bags versus dark circles, anyway? And which ones were we actually complaining about?
After being a long time Ipsy subscriber I will never go back! This box gave me so many full size and/or large sample sized products I am amazed that it’s only $5 more! My pouch did not come ripped like others however I do believe they could improve the quality of the bag. The booklet shows a Beauty Blender Micro Mini set should have been in the box but I received a neon pink NCLA nail polish ($16 retail) that is not mentioned in the booklet. As for the items I think this box was a good mix of genres, from hair, skincare to makeup. Over all this box is better than a lot of others!
