Freshen Up

Flowers are blooming, it’s starting to get warmer, and I’m ready to put away my sweaters and brighten up my beauty routine. I’m switching out my rose blush for a radiant bronzer from makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury, and replacing my wintry, warm vanilla fragrance with a beachy coconut scent from one of my favorite clean fragrance brands, By/Rosie Jane. You’ll get these feel-good favorites—plus a shine-enhancing Kérastase hair gloss, an elegant four-ingredient lip balm from a cult-classic beauty brand, and more—in your April Allure Beauty Box.

Full Size Member Choice: Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Sun-Kissed Glow Bronzer

Why you’ll love it: Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury is a master of sexy, bronzed looks (she’s worked with Kate Moss forever, so enough said) and this creamy bronzer is exactly what you’d expect from the Tilbury brand. It gives skin a warm glow that’s believable and sultry—the kind of summery radiance you’d get from lounging by the pool (wearing SPF, of course)—and leaves your skin softer by way of hydrating hyaluronic acid.

How you’ll use it: You can use a fluffy brush, but we especially love applying this cream bronzer with a damp makeup sponge, which seamlessly blends it into your foundation or blush. There’s no patchiness or harsh lines, just a pretty bronze finish.

Deluxe size Kérastase Soin Acide Chroma Gloss Hair Gloss

Why you’ll love it: There’s hair care that you use on autopilot, then forget about it, and go on with your routine—and then there‘s Kérastase Chroma Absolu. It’s an at-home, in-shower gloss that gives you a salon-fresh feeling, adding shine to color-treated hair. One editor who tested the treatment says, “I can definitely say my color looks particularly vibrant when I treat it with this gloss and I’ve seen a significant reduction in frizz too.” That’s because the lactic acid seals hair so it’s smooth and shiny.

How you’ll use it: Once a week after shampooing, apply from mid-lengths to ends (not near your scalp) and the liquid transforms into an easy-to- apply cream as you rub it in. Leave it on for a minute or two and rinse.

By / Rosie Jane Missy Perfume Oil Roller

Why you’ll love it: This summery blend of mandarin and coconut is reminiscent of a warm, relaxing day at the beach when by sunset your skin is scented with sunscreen and the salt of the ocean. This perfume in a rollerball easily fits in handbags (even an evening clutch), which makes it the perfect pick-me-up for anytime, anywhere.

How you’ll use it: Roll the perfume oil onto the usual pulse points— your wrists and neck—but also less expected ones, like behind the ears and behind the knees.
