  1. I just noticed that the add-on August box is now $34.99 instead of $24.99! So they must be running low on the August box?

  2. Press on nails and chap stick??? I’m on the verge of cancelling my Allure sub. If the Dec box isn’t great i”m done.

  3. I am not pleased with this box! Press on nails is the last straw for me. Because I pre-purchased the boxes this year, I have to take this one to complete my purchase. However, the quantity and quality of the items has decline steeply.

    In 2017, I am definitely going to look before I leap into a purchase.

    • I had prepaid as well and when I saw the August box spoilers, I asked them to refund me for the next 2 boxes. It took several emails, but eventually they did mail me a check.
      Yes, I am not so happy about this box and honestly I am glad I asked for a refund,. The $20 premium for this is unfounded. They used to be so good and now they just s+ck.

      • It is crazy that Allure charged a premium for boxes they ultimately ended up discounting (never mind the fact that you had to pay that full price plus premium charge in full UP FRONT!).

        These boxes have certainly declined over time. I recall when the boxes used to include close to $400 worth of high end products, now they are down to $250 of mostly random, but repeated, drug store items. Charging a premium made sense when the boxes were utterly amazing and would sell out instantly, but not anymore. Most companies offer a discount for prepaying a subscription, so I don’t see how Allure can rationalize charging a premium at this stage. At a minimum, I would think subscribers could argue to get a refund for the premium paid. The whole point of the premium was to ensure getting a box. But none of the last three boxes have sold out at full price, so you’re essentially paying Allure for the priveledge of having them take more of your money all at once upfront. It makes no sense.

        That being said, at more than 75% off, this box is still a great deal. Unfortunately Allure set a precedent by historically offering boxes with even better values and higher quality products so it’s hard not to be at least a little disappointed with the last few boxes. But if you can just wipe your memory of the “good old days” of Allure Thrills and just focus on this box on it’s own, it is still a great value and has a lot of useful, albeit not terribly exciting, items (and the August box at $25 is a ridiculously good deal!!). I did end up buying it (but mostly because of the August add-on), and I’m sure it will make me smile when the boxes arrive. I’ll just try to do my best to bury the memory of the good old Allure Thrills days or else I’ll end up sounding like my grandmother when she reminisces about the good old days when candy was a nickel. Ahhh, remember when…. 🙂

  4. Wait, what the what? This box was already SO LIGHT on products and now they cut one out? I hope we get a replacement product of similar value because I definitely counted that product in my “would I use enough of this to justify the purchase” math. This was the most on the fence I have been about this box ever and that might have tipped me to a no.

  5. Any chance the spring box can be added too for $25 each….I might bite at the option of getting all 3 if 2 are discounted

    • I would love to know the answer to that question….

      • They will not let me add the Aug box to my Dec subscription. I am so glad this is my last box. They are not loyal to their subscription customers. Live and learn.

  6. nope, not gonna do it!

  7. Agh. This box is pretty bad but I do like the August box. This could have been so much better with just a couple of different items. Two press on nails – really? Cmon.

    • And now the August box is $35 instead of $25 like it was yesterday!

      • Well, that makes my decision for me…

  8. Sorry Allure you’re a day late and I’m a dollar short….All my money was thrown at PSMH & Happy Rebel 🤑

    • Ha! So true! That’s actually a good tip for retailers…releasing anything a day or two after the Black Friday/Cyber Monday extravaganza likely won’t yield nearly as many sales if they had put whatever they are selling on the market a few days earlier. I feel sooooo financially stretched right now, something has to really knock my socks off for me to pull the trigger. Sorry Allure…I’m tapped out!! 🙁

      • Omg…what is wrong with me???? I talked such a big game in my last post that I was tapped out financially, then I read that you could get the August box as an add-on for $25 and I CAVED!!! (I love the Redken product in that box and that costs more than the whole box!!). So $85 dollars later I have a boatload of new products headed my way that I will add to my totally overflowing unused product stash! Ugh. I need help! (At least I know some of my fellow MSAers are right there with me!!) 🙂

        • LOL, Karen, yes we are right there with you. No worries! 😀

        • You’re among great company. 🙂

        • I do like that redken oil… I will not cave, I will not cave or at least until after the holidays. I doubt there is a big rush for this box….

          • Good luck!! Based on the time stamps on my comments my will power lasted a grand total of 14 minutes. How pathetic am I?? STAY STRONG! You can do it 🙂

        • I got it too! Added the August box because it was great. Altogether a good deal to me.

          • I LOVE LOVE the August box! I was a bit aggravated that the Rituals foam value was listed for the full size and it was NOT the full size. But all in all, I felt like it was my own personal Christmas the day it arrived! There are few things more satisfying than unboxing!!!

  9. Grabbed one. Didn’t take advantage of the Aug add on box.

    Sorry to see that 5 min face mask is no longer included. 🙁 Still for me this box is total win.

  10. They are also offering the August box at half price as well.
