September 2023 Allure Beauty Box

As summer fades and fall quickly approaches, it’s the perfect opportunity to push reset on your beauty routine. The September Allure Beauty Box has exactly what you need to refresh your skin and hair, plus one star makeup product (take your pick from three award-winning products by Kulfi, Rare Beauty, or Kaja) that instantly wakes up tired eyes. In a matter of minutes, Eve Lom’s Rescue Mask (formulated to revive dull skin) and Kristin Ess’s Moisture Mask (a treatment that repairs dry hair) are downright transformative. The same can be said about Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Face Oil, which gives you glowing skin while you sleep. How’s that for time well spent? — Paige Stables, Allure Senior Beauty Editor 

New Member Gift: Alpha H Liquid Gold with 5% Glycolic Acid (full size)

Why you’ll love it: This liquid, which has the consistency of a lightweight toner, is spiked with five percent glycolic acid to dissolve dead skin cells. Plus, it also contains licorice root extract, a brightening ingredient that helps alleviate redness and irritation. Case in point: Allure commerce editor Sarah Han found a particularly stubborn post-breakout dark spot faded after a week of using this exfoliator.

How you’ll use it: Every other day, incorporate this into exfoliator into your evening skin care routine after cleansing. Dispense a few drops onto a cotton pad and swipe it all over your face, avoiding the eye area. Skin will feel smooth and look radiant.

Rare Beauty Perfect Strokes Universal Volumizing Mascara (full size)

Why you’ll love it: Hello, va-va-voom lashes! This (very appropriately named) mascara leaves lashes fluttery, soft, and clump-free. The long-wearing, pitch-black formula spiked with lash-conditioning castor oil doesn’t dry too quickly, so you can go in with a second layer to up the drama. And the thick brush coats every single lash. It’s why Selena Gomez’s Rare Beauty is one celebrity beauty brand that our editors actually can’t get enough of.

How you’ll use it: Apply two coats and marvel at the thick, lustrous results. One editor even skips the lash primer she usually uses to prevent smudges on her oily lids.

  *Members can choose the Rare Beauty mascara, Kulfi eyeliner, or Kaja Beauty eyeshadow while supplies lasts.

Kulfi Kajal Eyeliner in Cheeky Chiku (full size)

Why you’ll love it: A flick of this rich, chocolate brown liner is much more forgiving than the typical inky black, while still making an impact. Kulfi’s Best of Beauty Award-winning, long-wearing gel glides on with ease (compared to a harsh pencil or messy liquid) and stays put all day, “even on your lower lash line,” says Han.

How you’ll use it: For a bold look, trace the pigment along your lash lines and extend it out past the corner of your eyes to create a defined wing. For a more sultry finish, “use a shadow brush to smudge the liner out,” adds Han.

Kaja Beauty Bento Bouncy Shimmer Eyeshadow Trio in Chocolate Dahlia (full size)

Why you’ll love it: This eye shadow tower is a fun (not to mention gorgeous!) reimagining of an eye shadow palette. It’s no bigger than a pot of lip balm—perfect for throwing into a bag—but the powders inside have big-time color payoff that doesn’t crease, even after a full day of wear.

How you’ll use it: For a glam look on the quick, use a brush to blend Brown Sugar (the matte chocolate) through your creases and Cool Khaki (the matte tan) over your lids. Then dust Crushed Pearl at the inner corners for a reflective rose-gold highlight that makes this so much cooler than the average smoky eye.

Eve Lom Rescue Mask (full size)

Why you’ll love it: This face mask is a brilliant solution for stressed-out skin: It uses kaolin clay to help reduce the oiliness in your T-zone that can lead to breakouts without leaving your face feeling totally parched in the process. And “its herbal scent makes the experience feel as spa-like as it gets within the confines of your bathroom,” Mazzone says.

How you’ll use it: Massage a generous layer over your face. One 20-minute application makes your skin look noticeably radiant and feel remarkably softer. “Like, resist-the-urge-to-touch-your-face softer,” Mazzone adds.

Kristin Ess Strand Strengthening Reconstructive Moisture Mask

Why you’ll love it: Hair damage may be inevitable (from heat styling, coloring your hair, and everyday habits such as brushing your hair), but with Kristin Ess’s nourishing, in-shower treatment—infused with hydrating coconut oil and shea butter—you can extend the time until your next trim.

How you’ll use it: Once a week, replace your conditioner with this moisturizing mask. After shampooing and ringing out any excess water, rake through a dollop of this creamy mask. Let it sit for five minutes, comb it through, and rinse for super-shiny hair.

Kiehl’s Since 1851: Midnight Recovery Concentrate Moisturizing Face Oil

Why you’ll love it: While you catch some z’s, Kiehl’s face oil (a botanical blend of lavender, evening primrose, and rosemary oils, plus hydrating squalane) makes sure your skin gets a good night’s sleep. And the quick-to-absorb formula sinks right into your skin, not your pillow.

How you’ll use it: Before you jump under the covers, press several drops into your face, neck, and décolletage. Wake up glowing!

MUDMASKY Serum-Infused Moisturizer (full size)

Why you’ll love it: This lightweight moisturizer does more than just hydrate (with sweet almond and sunflower seed oils): Fruit extracts gently exfoliate and aloe soothes signs of irritation.

How you’ll use it: Cleanse your face, pat it dry, and rub on a thin layer of Mudmasky’s moisturizer for supple skin.

Rael Collagen Sheet Mask

Why you’ll love it: The radiant results you’ll get from this easy-to-use mask rival a luxurious facial. Licorice root extract smooths skin while amino acids plump.

How you’ll use it: Stick the mask on your face, put your feet up for at least 10 minutes, and after peeling the mask off, press in any of the excess serum.
