This was one of my first beauty boxes ever. I'd never heard of them until I saw this in Allure Magazine and back then it was only $10 a month and claimed to send a mix of sample and full size products from quality beauty brands and relevant products. I was so excited at the idea of receiving a box of beauty every month but was very disappointed in this box... Every month was mostly Drug Store Brands are samples that were way too small, so I canceled after 4 months and moved on to Ipsy and Sephora Play but I was always keeping my eye on what other subs were including in their boxes and about a year ago, I didn't even recognize the Allure Box and I resubbed and still receive it monthly. They truly do make them boxes pack a punch.
Every month, I receive high end, newer products. I always love the Cosmetics. And what especially sets this one apart is that there is always the most amazing skincare included every month. We even on quite a few occasions have received a new Sunday Riley skincare product before it was even available for sale anywhere. And they stepped up on the size of products. A majority of them are full sized and the samples provide quite a few uses. Even though I receive 2 other beauty subs that provide all full sized items, I think this one gives you the best value for your money.
If you move, UPDATE YOUR ADDRESS OVER EMAIL OR PHONE, not the online system. I updated online 3 times and it did not go through. The package was sent to my old address, USPS didn't bother forwarding it and disposed of it. Called Allure and they sent a replacement box. Very good customer service. Just make sure you confirm any changes to your account.
It was my fault, but the first time the box was sent to me, it wasn't delivered because there wasn't an apt number. It happened again with my April box, so I think they make the shipping labels the day they charge you, and I didn't change my address before that. So beware, it takes them a minute to update the address if it is wrong. But luckily, after contacting them, I got both boxes, and even my La Mer samples.
I loved everything, and I got a lot of stuff I would actually use. Nothing came broken or expired and the bag it came in was still in one piece. The samples are either deluxe or full size so you do get a lot for your money. Reading other reviews, the big thing seems like they could improve their cancelling process, and also be a bit more clear on their shipping process. I think they only ship twice a month, so it may seem slow, but once it ships, it ships fast. So far I love it, and they do answer your emails if there is a problem with your box. If the future boxes are good, this one may be my favorite along with Ipsy. Give it a chance.
I've been a subscriber for over a year now and even if I have to give up other boxes, this one is my fave, and will be kept. If you're looking to use high end brands daily, but you can't afford high end prices, this is the box for you. I can't tell you how many times I've been shocked by 1. the amount of items in the box and 2. the brands that I would never be able to get my hands on. Just like every one of these beauty boxes there are going to be some dud months, because hey we aren't all the same person. This month SPOILERS AHEAD Feb I got ROSE scented items. Rose perfume is my signature scent and so I'm very excited.
Here's the spoilers Mamonde Petal spa oil to foam. This stuff smells like a spring day. Also the matching flower lab essence mask in rose. Model company metallic eyeshadow trio and a Moda m27 triad brush to apply it. The brow gal tinted brow gel 2.8 grams looks like full size. Mile High club from Wander Beauty mascara and Mally liquid lip in a pale pink color. All in a black clear plastic makeup bag. The bag is perfect for the gym and for travel. I'm so happy with this beauty box. THANK YOU.
I have really enjoyed this subscription. I truly feel like I am getting a lot for the money. The price point is exceptional and the products are higher end. I get opportunities to try an $80 product before I go and drop my money in the store. Honestly pleased each month and intend to keep the subscription indefinitely.

Please don't waste your money on these parasites. I ordered 1 beauty box and accidentally ordered 7 somehow. As soon as they sent confirmation, I called them and said I accidentally did that, that I did NOT want 7 boxes. I also emailed them as well. Well they billed me anyway and took it out of my debit card, when I found out, I called immediately and they refunded the money only to take it back two days later. So I have been getting the runaround and I finally lost it when they lied saying it's not in our computer. They hung up on me, I canceled, called and emailed a cancellation. I had to cancel my debit card and I'm out 70 bucks. I'm on a fixed income and they scammed me.
I got one box and I wanted to cancel so I sent an email to 3 separate email addresses and never got a response. (They were the emails provided from their website.) They charged my card on the 5th of August and I called to let them know I canceled by email, which they say I can do. I asked customer service to pull up the email and she said "That's a different department, I'm unable to see any emails". How are your customer service representatives not allowed to view customer service emails? Hmmm? Then I ask if she can refund the charge but she was unable because "my box shipped out 2 days ago". Okay. Whatever. It took 5 extra days to receive a shipping notification through email. Today is the 12th and it still hasn't arrived. I can't even see where my package is because it's still not scanned by USPS. Basically, I was lied to by customer service so that she wouldn't have to refund me. This company is the biggest scam. Definitely over it.
When I first started subscribing to the Beauty Box, I really liked the products they sent, as well as the cute red boxes which I reuse. Then I started to have problems with items frequently being substituted or missing. I was told that was due to high volume. Occasional substitutions I can understand, but not missing items. Then the quality started going downhill. I am so tired of getting dry shampoo etc. Finally they changed the cute red boxes to clear flimsy pouches that I will never use again. After another missing item, I cancelled. Too bad, it was a really great program in the past.
I would rate zero stars but it makes you rate at least a 1. I was so looking forward to my first Allure Beauty Box. It was shipped June 23. I still have not received it. Today is July 8. I reached out to customer service. I understand it is the postal service. It has been in every state North of me and around me but has not yet came to my state. This was per my tracking number. I get a response from Allure, “Thank you for contacting us, your box shipped on the 24th. Here is your tracking number.” Well no, crap I already knew all this, already have a tracking number. Apparently they only read your subject line and not the email. Terrible customer service and have been charged for July already of course. Still haven't gotten the first one. Not looking good for this subscription based on customer service alone.
Worst customer service. Changed my card and provided to them. They confirmed that my account was active but I did not receive anything for two months. When I asked about it I was told my account was cancelled and that I needed to resubscribe. That was super annoying in itself but I went ahead and did so. They took my money and at some point cancelled my membership because I already had an active one.... I just told them to forget it and keep it cancelled. I've never experienced such a lack of competent customer service with any other box. Don't waste your money or your time.
