March Allure Sample Society Box

March Allure Sample Society Box
March Allure Sample Society Box

Here is the March 2015 Allure Sample Society Box. This box is curated by Allure beauty editors and is one of the best (if not the best) beauty sample box out there. This is my second box and it did not disappoint. For $15 I got:

  • Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Moisturizer
  • NEW Benefit Roller Lash Mascara
  • Oscar Blandi Pronto Texture & Volume Spray
  • MALIN + GOETZ Mojito Lip Balm
  • Cargo Essentials Lip Gloss


The Juice beauty moisturizer is a deluxe sample, it absorbs quickly and has a light, pleasant smell. The BENEFIT Roller Lash Mascara is a more of a deluxe sample. Just released in Feb. 2015, it has this hook design that catches and lifts your lashes for a curl effect and full coverage. I wasn’t a fan of the Oscar Blandi dry shampoo, but this texture spray has redeemed the brand in my eyes. It builds texture without being “crunchy” and also works as a dry shampoo. The MALIN +GOETZ Mojito Lip Balm isn’t too sticky – but it make you want to drink one! Finally, the Cargo lip gloss is a great, shear pink shimmer and smells really good – like apples.
