  1. I am one of those who got really excited about the new cleaning tool, then became sad about the non-rechargeable part…. But I am glad I read all the comments that you can use it manually (which I will probably for my T zones) or use it to clean brushes. Great idea, ladies! I wonder if the batteries will last 3 month or so if I decided to use once a day. If you already own this line, do you use it twice a day or only once a day? I normally don’t use any cleaning tools, so just curious. Thanks!!

    • I believe this may be special size? At least I know Sephora doesn’t carry this version, only the $99 and up versions. But I’m glad to be able to test it out before committing to one of the more expensive versions. The ones I’ve looked at on Sephora say they are gentle enough to use twice a day. I have never tried them before but have been eyeing them since before Christmas. I’m super excited for this spoiler.

      • Not sure if you know this, but the Foreo play that was in the Allure box is $39 at

    • I have Foreo and I LOVE it!!! I have oily skin and most of the year I use it twice a day. When I first got it I used it twice a day for the full two minutes that it pulses, then after a week or two I went down to using it just for 1 minute each wash (still 2x a day). In the winter (or all year if you have normal to dry skin) I would suggest only using it once a day because twice a day may make your skin overly dry. 🙂
      I have used mine manually and it still works well…just not as well as with the pulsation.

      i think think that this would be perfect for traveling and was SO excited to see it would be in the box! I too was sad that I cannot charge it or replace the battery 🙁 $40 is a lot to pay every few months! I would think that for only 100 uses and nearly haf the price of their smallest device that they should have been able to produce a slightly larger one.

      All in all its a good way to try it but I would just buy a rechargable one instead of re-purchasing a $40 one. You can get one during the Sephora VIB sale for 20% off, dermstore sale often has a 30% off coupon, or when Ulta has a 20% off coupon and say a little bit of money. DON’T buy them from Amazon because it is riddled with fake ones that are terrible quality!

      That was a crazy long comment 🙂 Hopefully it was helpful! 🙂

      • Very helpful for me! Thanks!

      • It was very helpful, thank you! <3
        I'll be looking for one of those codes/sites if I love my allure one so much I need a bigger one!(I bought the box last night after seeing the tips of how to use it after the 100 uses-brush cleaner-use normally)
        I hadn't thought of staying away from Amazon as that's where I buy most my stuff so thanks for the tip!
        Also…I can't wait for the box!!! 😀

      • Thank you Ashley and Janna! It is very helpful. I think once a day is ideal for me. I hope the battery will last 100 days… Some people say there will be 8 items in the box, so I think I will try my best to stay spoiler free until I get my box.

    • I immediately ordered when I saw this spoiler. Some people on here have talked about trying to pop it open to replace the battery. The thing is though, it’s probably sealed to be waterproof. If you pop it open you’ll break the seal. I’m just looking forward to trying it. The breakdown at 8 items for $15 is under $2 a product. Would I try the foreo for $2? Heck yeah. So it’s still a win. 🙂

  2. They are just unreal! First the 2 random free extra boxes for some of us, in addition to the super awesome regular boxes, and now this!? I just hope and pray it continues and they continue to blow our minds with awesomeness. Watch out Boxycharm, there may be a new stud in town …….

    • IKR – I love Allure too, even though I had some issues a couple months ago with their customer service. It worked out in the end, but it took a couple of months before my sub got back to normal.

      I never thought of any sub box a ‘stud’, but um, o.k. … 🙂

    • Lol!! That’s funny you mention Boxycharm. I dropped them 2-3 months ago & picked up Allure. Best decision ever! I LOVE Allure. It’s currently my favorite box!! I haven’t been disappointed in the 3 boxes I’ve received. Such quality, really great sizes, the L’Occitaine & Fekkai products last month, blew me away! I’ve never seen those sizes. They were Deluxe-deluxe.. Awesome box & I love the daily email I get, I always read all the helpful hints & recommendations, they send. Overall, I HIGHLY recommend it & DO NOT miss my Boxycharm. I swear it was getting worse, every month. I didn’t recognize most of the brands & when I got Feb, I walked over & threw the whole thing away!?

  3. Love allure, their quality and value are just exceptional, it blows my mind. By far the best beauty box imo by far, I don’t know how they do it! I’m crawling outta my skin, I’m so excited for this box, can.not.wait.

  4. Now really, how am I supposed to resist THIS??

    Hard core move, Allure. You win. I re-subbed.

    • Me too!! I unsubscribed about a year ago but that Foreo product got me back on board.

    • same reaction ^^

    • On the same boat …..just had to subscribe again ….why am i so weak ….

    • Me also! Lol

  5. I’m glad that I signed up for this sub last month! The first box was great and this looks even better. It’s quickly becoming my favorite box.

  6. I’m excited to try a Foreo! I had my sister sign up after seeing this spoiler. It still says May will be the first box on their website and I hope this is true. I recall reading they had problems providing all of their subscribers with the March box.

  7. This is already worth $57 with just 2 of the 8 items for a box that costs $10 w/ a new subscription. You can’t beat the value here! I don’t mind the Foreo item being disposable.. It has an amazing value and an awesome way to try out a high-dollar item. Just ordered a 2nd box so I can have two of the Foreo items!!! So excited! Thanks for the spoilers!

    • Omg great idea!! I now am gonna try to get 2 or 3 more… Birthdays/Xmas gifts!!

  8. Someone mentioned using it as a brush cleaner once the batteries run out. That’s a great use for the disposable device. Just trying to make lemonade 🙂

    • That’s a great idea! I hate the idea of throwing away something functional just because the battery died. It seems so wasteful, but I could totally see that being used as a makeup brush cleaner. I can’t believe they’re including this in a $10 box. . whoa!

      • Yea! My idea! 🙂 🙂

  9. I said I was trying to stay away from new subs; but this was too tempting. ?

    • Ditto!!

  10. Wait this is a disposable device?? You can’t change out the batteries?? Why????
    I signed up when I saw this but if I’m going to have to throw it away after 100 uses I feel like that’s awful! Someone tell me I read that wrong. ?

    • You can still use it manually after the battery wears out, that’s what I’m going to do, it’ll be like a bigger version of the Sephora Precision Pore Cleansing Pad which I love, maybe not as good as rechargeable but hey for $10!

    • Nope. But the larger $100 one is rechargable. This one does still work manually or to clean brushes once it dies though!

  11. I just subscribed thanks to the spoilers, but I’m also excited to see what the Makeup Forever item is…..

    • I know…probably won’t be their new concealers… But girl can hope ?

  12. I am so hyped for this box!!! Allure has consistently been my favorite box out of the um… *cough* six I subscribe to.

    • I am up to 10. So do not feel so bad.

      • I have 26, and I don’t even blog…

    • 12. You aren’t alone! The struggle ?

  13. Yessssssssss to the Foreo and the nail Polish is cute too! So excited to be getting 8 items this month. Can’t wait to see the full spoilers. So glad I took the leap and subscribed last month. This is becoming my favorite box!

  14. Just subscribed because I’ve wanted to try the Foreo but wasn’t willing to spend the big bucks to buy it. So this is a great way to try it out. One of the main reasons I also subscribed, they allow you to cancel online without calling. Like that feature!

  15. *screams* I don’t think I’ve ever been THIS excited about a beauty sub IN MY LIFE! I can’t wait to get this!!!

  16. I’m not a fan of devices that contain batteries that are meant to be thrown away after use. You’re not even supposed to throw away batteries. In 2016, you’d think companies would be informed enough to make eco-responsible decisions.

    • I hear you, but the market is consumer driven and there are a lot of customers that want options like this. It provides them a way to try a $40 version before investing in a $200-$300 version with rechargeable batteries, so I understand why the company would choose to offer this option.

    • My local recycle center has a place for batteries to be disposed safely. It does seem wasteful though, just casually throwing an electronic away after a few uses.

    • I agree – it is a real waste, especially on Earth Day. I own the regular rechargeable version and I love it. I also love you don’t have to buy $25 brushes. I bought it during Sephora’s 20% sale and there was this special deal – so I actually got a fair price for it. Over time, it saves money over Clarisonic and it works for me. This little one would have been great for travel, but I was dismayed at the tossing it part. Also, $39 is a high price to pay for something temporary. It would have knocked it out of the park if it was rechargeable or there was a way to change the batteries.

      • “I agree – it is a real waste, especially on Earth Day.”

        ^ Yes! Exactly what I was thinking. It’s amazing that they would want to provide such an awesome tool in this sub, but a bit shocking in this day and age that it can’t be recharged or have replaceable batteries. I’d even be ok with having to pay for the charger myself if they couldn’t afford to put it in the box. The suggestions of using it manually or as a brush cleaner are good ones, but still – how many people will actually do that compared to the number who will just toss their device? Really just shocking to hear on Earth Day 🙁

    • When mine dies on me I’m probably going to open it up and see if I can replace the battery (probably a small lithium one. Wouldn’t be as pretty when I seal it back up, but it doesn’t need to be 🙂

      • Agreed. I wouldn’t mind finding a way to replace the battery, even if it meant I won’t be able to use it in the shower afterwards to protect the inside from water. Worth it for $10!!

  17. Love this box. It’s Easily my favorite beauty sub box I get each month. They have such amazing products in each box and I use everything everytime. They are blowing other beauty sub boxes away…keep it up ALLURE!

  18. That’s a bummer it’s not rechargable…but WOW!! I’m so excited, I’ve wanted to try the Luna for a while now. Amazing Allure!

  19. I love Allure!

  20. I just subscribed a few days ago for the first time. After seeing these spoilers I bought 2 more boxes. One for Mother’s Day for my mom and one for my sister as an early graduation present. We’ve looked into the Foreo at Sephora so this seemed too good of a deal to pass up!

  21. Omg! So excited about the foreo play. This is something I’d love to try but never spend $40 on to try. Allure is so good to me.

  22. I almost had myself talked out of this and then I signed up anyway! My fingers took over and the auto fill on my Chrome made it all that much easier….that makes 3 new boxes this week. I’m supposed to be cutting back! #addiction #phantomfingers

    • Out of curiosity, what are your other two boxes?

      • Essence and Sephora Play 🙂

  23. Ughhh I just cancelled my sub yesterday because I’m trying to curb my spending. That didn’t last long – I just reactivated it. I did however resist the Amazon one, so I’ll give myself a pat on the back for that!

    • The Amazon one? Do tell!

    • Wait there’s an amazon one? Oh no.. Lol

  24. I can’t wait to get my may beauty box!!! 😀

  25. My sister was talking about switching from Ipsy to Allure. This box looks like it’s going to be a doozie so I signed up for a second sub for her. After May she’s on her own. I can’t be funding both of our addictions.

  26. Spec. Tacular. Can’t wait! So once the 100 uses are gone, it runs out of battery and can’t be recharged? Not that i’m complaining, just curious. Because if I were buying it, that means after 45 days, its done? Wish we could charge it! 🙂

  27. Man, Allure is blowing Glossybox and some other boxes out of the water! Excited about this box!

    • Definitely! I’ve canceled Glossybox and Ipsy, but I’m thinking about bumping Allure up to a yearly subscription 🙂

      • Is yearly cheaper for Allure? I can’t remember if you get a discount for an annual sub.

        • Yes. I did the yearly in March, and so glad I did. Looks like next month is going to be another good one!

      • I was just on their site and they have $165 for a year with $15 off if you sign up today. That knocks the price down to $12.50/month.

  28. I signed up because i love my foreo luna mini,and i thought the play would be nice for my gym bag. but the play only has enough charge to be used 100 times? and then you toss it out? just in time for earth day 🙁 that’s 40-cents each use + tax in addition for the $40 play. Still glad i signed up for $10, but too bad it’s another electronic device i’ll eventually have to recycle.

    • I feel the same way! How wasteful!! I don’t even know why they design something like that without a charger… I actually may be the only person unsure of if I want this month or not hah

    • Oh no! Not cool at all…45 uses and trash it?!? That’s so wasteful.

      • 100 uses, so 50 days if you use it twice a day. I’ll likely keep it as a mat to clean my brushes on the nubs. 🙂

      • Is it not possible to take the batteries out and put new ones in? I don’t understand!

        • I was thinking the same thing. I’m not sure how it’s designed, but I’ll try my best to prise it open and replace the batteries!

      • No 100 uses! Still wasteful tho. People are saying you can use it to clean brushes once it dies though

    • Seriously, as soon as I saw it I signed up…. then I went back and read the entire post/descriptions. 100 uses that is so wasteful, it makes me kinda sad now and I feel a bit guilty. I have the full size and love it so I thought this is great for travel, but its not rechargeable!! I’m not complaining about the deal or Allure’s box, its a great buy for $10 or $15 a box. I’m just disappointed in the brand for making something so wasteful.

  29. I just signed up. Can anyone tell me if this will be my first box or if I missed the cutoff?

    • I hope not because I just ordered a second box for my sister. : ( It seems like they usually have the cut off date listed somewhere.

    • Their website says “all orders will begin with the May 2016 box.” Yay!

  30. I mean I’d be losing money if I didn’t sign up right ;-). Excited for this! Allure seems to have pretty good boxes consistently.

  31. Wow how cool is that scrubbie thing??? And 8 items?! So glad I signed up for this box, I’ve really enjoyed the boxes I’ve gotten so far!

  32. I signed up again (for the 3rd or 4th time) a few months ago and the boxes have been great since then. This month is looking good.

  33. Very excited just signed up! That is such a great value for $10 and I have always wanted to try the Foreo but it is super expensive, this will be the perfect way to see how it works! And its sooo cute and perfect for travel!

  34. Ugh. I’d put this one on suspend. And…. I just reactivated.

  35. I love how we were all like “surely it’s a cleanser – it’s got to be a cleanser”, and then Allure brought out the big guns (as usual). What an exciting box – and I love that nail polish color!

  36. Oh No! I had to…

  37. I’m tempted to get a 2nd box sent to my MIL’s for only $10!

  38. Omg I’m so glad I signed up and this will be my first box ????

  39. I was going to cancel this one because I’ll start getting Sephora boxes in May, I’m going to be moving soon, and I already have a ton of stuff. However, I think I’m going to “have to” hang on another month!

    • I was thinking the same thing, since I’m finally off the wait list for Sephora! I was going to cancel Allure, but now…….I don’t know!

  40. You’re right….this is AMAZING!!! ?

  41. Some of these boxes keep getting me to come back after I’ve cancelled. It’s so unfair!

  42. The Foreo spoiler convinced me to sign up, I’ve been on the fence for a while because I have so many beauty products that don’t get used and I just got Play by Sephora too. Oh well, take my money guys!

  43. I’m freaking out about the Foreo. Allure was my best budget box too 🙂 (PSMH my favorite overall).

    • I know! When we first got the Foreo brand spoiler, I assumed that the product would be a cleanser sample because there was no way we’d get an actual tool …. what an awesome surprise! 🙂

      • I’m guessing that the cleanser will be one of the eight items in the box, it makes sense for them to include it. Super excited! Love this box!

  44. Had to sign up as I love the nail polish color as much as the big spoiler and for $10? Thats amazing. Reminds me that I need to cancel other $10 boxes when I see ones like this with so much more for close to the same price.

  45. can’t wait!

  46. I have never been so excited for someone taking my money before!! WHEEEEEEEE!!!

  47. Whoa Nelly! Very cool!

    I love Allure’s box. I’ve told myself that I’m cutting down on my subs at the end of this year. (Let’s see if that REALLY happens! 🙂 ) I’m sure that I’ll keep this one – And spoilers like this one is why. VERY EXCITED!

  48. Woohoo!!

  49. Honestly allure was my best box last month!!

  50. Convinced me to sign up! I had the Clairsonic but after a few years the motor died and I didn’t LOVE it enough to spend the money again on it.
