Allure Holiday Beauty Box 2012

I just love Allure Beauty Boxes and sadly, I missed the Summer one this year.  So when the Holiday edition was released for purchase on Black Friday, I jumped on it.  It arrived yesterday and I couldn't wait to share the contents with you.  It includes 16 full-sized products and it only costs $29.99 plus shipping and handling.  What a bargain!  I am dividing the box into categories so "like" products will be together.

Here goes:

Skincare - Body

c. Booth - Honey & Almond Body Butter - 8 oz./$6.99 - - Dry skin isn't a lost cause -- it just needs a little coaxing back to a moisturized state. Let our hydrating Honey & Almond Body Butter get right to work, sweeping deep into skin with its extra rich, extra thick, and extra efficient formula that's oh-so-good at relieving dryness, roughness, and tightness brought on by thirsty skin in need. Essential oils and butters nourish and lock in moisture to keep dryness at bay, and softness on deck.

Jergens - Daily Moisture Dry Skin Moisturizer - 10 fl. oz./$3.99 - - Ideal for daily use, Jergens Daily Moisture Dry Skin Moisturizer instantly transforms dry, rough skin into visibly smooth skin.  With an alluring, smooth fragrance, this long-lasting formula is enriched with Silk Proteins and Citrus Extracts.  It leaves skin looking and feeling silky and smooth all day long.  Also available in fragrance-free.

Nivea - Touch of Renewal Lathering Body Scrub - 12 fl. oz./$5.99 - - Enjoy a spa-like experience with NIVEA Touch of Renewal.  It balances exfoliation, gentle cleansing, and moisturization for beautiful, healthy-looking skin.

Youngblood - Mineral Illuminating Tint - Body - 5.9 fl. oz./$37.50 - - Enhance a Summer glow all year long with this non-streaking, luminous body tint.  The highly moisturizing formula is packed with natural oils and antioxidants to do wonders for dry skin, while the soft bronze tint helps even out skin tone.  With the indulgent scent of Shea Butter and Coconut Oils.

Overall Rating:  Booyah!  The retail value of this box is almost $200 excluding sales tax, so for the price it is well worth it even though some of the products and shades won't work for me.  Additionally, $5 from each purchase was donated to the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer fund so extra kudos to Allure for this baby.

Don't know about you, but I am definitely looking forward to Allure's next beauty box.
