June #Unboxing: NuevaYorka x Allure Beauty
I signed up for the Sunday Riley and stayed for the Mamonde. Curious to find out what I mean? Then you’ll want to read on. I’m talking frizzy humidity hair, dark spots and signs of aging—yup, I’m 36 folks, not even sure I qualify as a millennial.
But I definitely am a big proponent of natural beauty, so I prioritize skincare over makeup. My monthly delivery of the Allure Beauty Box has allowed me to try various products in order to learn what works best for my skin and dabble into the cosmetics scene.

The only rule in my routine is that beauty is an inside job—it emanates from within you. If, like me, you’ve found your glowing skin, wild hair and voluptuous body underrepresented in mainstream culture, loving yourself can be a tough gig. I promise you, we’re all going through it, just trying to practice self-acceptance and learn from each other’s experiences.
