Allure Summer Beauty Box 2012

First of all, I'd like to say I'm sorry for the delay in posting.  I have so much to catch up with you all on.  My trusty MAC needed a tune-up and thanks to my friends at the Fifth Avenue Apple Store, it's now back in my hands.  I'd like to kick off my posts with details on the now sold out Allure Summer Beauty Box which arrived on my door step last week.






Allure says:



Want to stock up on summer beauty essentials and contribute to a good cause? Well, today's your lucky day. Allure's summer beauty box is finally here, and it's bigger and better than ever, with a total of 24 products valued at over $250! The good news: It'll only cost you $39.99 plus shipping and handling. If scoring these amazing products isn't cool enough, $5 from each order will be donated to the Skin Cancer Foundation. As for what will show up on your doorstep: 24 skin, hair, and makeup treats that'll help transform you into a summer goddess.
If your legs aren't in miniskirt condition (think prickly and pale), the new Gillette Venus & Olay razor will leave them silky, while Jergens Natural Glow & Protectmoisturizer will give them a gradual, sun-kissed glow, plus SPF 20 protection. Itching for a new nail polish? Orly's Beach Cruiser (a vibrant pink) makes for one hot manicure. And you'll want to keep Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer Liquid Sunblock SPF 70 at your side at all times—it doesn't feel greasy or go on white. Want to add some sexy surfer highlights without a trip to the salon? Spritz John Frieda's Sheer Blonde Lightening Spray on your ends for a beachy vibe. And you get not only one but two of my personal favorite hot-weather hair saver—dry shampoo (thanks to Oscar Blandi and Redken). The list of beauty loot goes on and on. So snag one and save bank, do good, and look gorgeous.
