January 2024 Allure Beauty Box

Whether you stick to all your New Year’s resolutions or break some by January 3, here’s an idea for one that’ll be easy to check off your list: glowing on the quick. The products inside your January box include easy cheats for radiance that take practically no time to apply: You can mist your way to dewy skin with a refreshing Milk Makeup spray, tap on a makeup artist secret for radiant cheekbones, and make your hair shinier while you shower. Wearing EltaMD’s sunscreen every day is most definitely a worthwhile resolution for healthier skin. And finish it all off by painting your nails in a sheer, luminous color that’s so forgiving, you don’t need a manicurist’s steady hand to get it right. Here’s to a bright 2024! — Elizabeth Siegel,  Allure Deputy Beauty Director

Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Set + Refresh Spray (full size)

Why you’ll love it: This fine mist does everything a good setting spray should, and then some. It helps prevent makeup from caking, settling into fine lines, and fading—without feeling dry or tight — actually making your makeup look better at the same time. The hydrating alcohol- free spritz — with skin-loving hyaluronic acid, aloe, and niacinamide — creates a luminous finish, which also makes it great for quick touch-ups. “It’s the easiest way to refresh your makeup before dinner,” says Allure’s Paige Stables. “A few spritzes in the afternoon give my makeup the same freshly done glow it had in the morning.”

How you’ll use it: Give the bottle a quick shake, hold it about eight to 10 inches away from your face, and—with your eyes and mouth closed, of course!—mist it onto your skin.

EltaMD UV Daily Tinted SPF 40 (full size)

Why you’ll love it: You’d be hard-pressed to find a better sunscreen than one made by EltaMD. The brand’s formulas are perpetual favorites of dermatologists for their skin-saving, broad-spectrum protection. But just because they work so well, that doesn’t mean they’re not light enough to wear every day — even in the winter. EltaMD’s new tinted sunscreen is proof: Its sheer color evens out your complexion without looking makeup-y or sunscreen-y, and it moisturizes with hyaluronic acid. So it’s extra-easy to protect yourself from the sun year round.

How you’ll use it: Smooth a generous amount over your face and neck, being sure to cover frequently missed areas, like between the brows and above
the upper lip.

RoC Skincare Hydrate + Plump Serum Capsules (full size)

Why you’ll love it: This serum is housed in capsules, which can help preserve its efficacy (light and air may break down skin-care ingredients), making it easy to travel with. It leaves skin hydrated, thanks to hyaluronic acid, soothed, and dewy. And emollient caprylic/capric triglyceride fills in lines to make complexions feel even, soft, and smooth. ““It’s the drink of hydration skin craves this time of year,” says Allure’s Jesa Marie Calaor.

How you’ll use it: Snap off the tip of the capsule and squeeze out a dime-size amount of the clear serum. It spreads easily across the face, and there’s enough to smooth a little down your neck too.

Dermelect Transfix Restore & Repair Base Coat (full size)

Why you’ll love it: This base coat helps prevent new damage, so nails can grow in stronger, and it hides yellowness and ridges so nail polish on top looks better. It’s also so pretty that you may decide to skip nail polish — one coat makes for a fresh, healthy-looking manicure all on its own.

How you’ll use it: Paint on one coat and, after it dries, you can add nail polish on top.

L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Cream

Why you’ll love it: This is L’Occitane’s most popular face cream for its rich texture — just decadent enough to feel super fancy and moisturizing without being too heavy — and how it makes cheeks noticeably softer. It is named for the bright yellow immortelle flower, whose extracts are supposed to help fade wrinkles and dark spots.

How you’ll use it: Massage it into your skin morning and night, over your usual serum and (in the mornings) under your new EltaMD sunscreen.

Egyptian Magic All Purpose Cream

Why you’ll love it: Makeup artists love this balm: Its combo of honey, beeswax, and olive oil quickly soothes and moisturizes, and has been known to make cheekbones glow on runways — a nice alternative to glittering highlighters.

How you’ll use it: Treat any area that’s in need of TLC — dry legs and elbows, cheeks chapped from the cold — and tap a little onto cheekbones.

Eva NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask (bonus)

Why you’ll love it: When hair is dry or staticy this time of year, a hydrating hair mask can work wonders. Eva NYC’s, with jojoba seed oil and argan oil, spreads easily through wet hair in the shower, and boosts shine. It also smells delicious, sweetly warm like a patisserie.

How you’ll use it: After shampooing, spread this from roots to ends using your fingertips, and let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing.
