  1. I just received the December Allure Sample Society box today. I received everything as listed, but I have a question about the Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Therapy. The catalog makes it seem like you should receive two lotions, but there is only one in the box (mine had La Source). I am new to this box, so I was curious what happened with other people’s boxes. Thanks!

    • Me too! I just opened my box and I received the verbena and lavender. I too thought it suggested both would be included?

    • I think it was supposed to be either-or, that two scents were possible and each box would have one of them. All the photos I’ve seen online had only one.

  2. I’m really looking forward to this box! It looks like they really stepped it up this month! I’m so excited to get This RGB Oxblood Polish! I’ve been wanting this for awhile and I’m so glad I didn’t break down and buy it ($18 for a polish is crazy to me).
    Im really glad I chose to not cancel. After the last two boxes I was very dubious about continuing my sub bc they were so disappointing.

  3. So glad there isn’t a red lipstick in this box, disappointed enough to see red nail polish! Wish sub boxes wouldn’t send red polish, red lipstick, and black eyeliner! Give us new colors!

  4. I just saw the box on beauty bar’s fb, the hand cream is full size, too! I’m excited!

  5. OK, so i guess i will not cancel this one just yet. LOL i wish they would have put in a winter lipstick color instead of a tinted lip balm like everyone is doing… ugh! i guess i can still use one and the brand is great. i am so happy that we got to see all the products for next month instead of having to wait days before i receive the box to find out what i am getting. i hope that Allure is back on track with giving us great products and brands…

  6. Looks like a great box! Nice to have the full spoilers for a change. I don’t wear red makeup/polish and don’t like getting hand creams, so won’t resubscribe just yet.

  7. I have close to 20 sub boxes and this is the first one on the list if I have to cancel, but these look great. I have to wait another month and see.

  8. I’ve been looking for a reason to sub. I love hand creams and Butter London!

    I don’t care about the other 3. Estee lauder looks okay but since the full size for 0.5 oz is $58 with poor reviews that don’t interest me. The base may be fun to try I dunno.

    But what made me sub is butter london full size and the hand cream. I am excited to try both and for $10 seems like a good deal to me. 🙂

    • Meaning I bet the eye care will be a tiny size. None the less this is a good deal! 🙂

  9. I cancelled last month, still expecting to get Novembers box, but they refunded me with my cancellation and I was fine with that.

    But I have to resign up for this box! Butter London alone makes it worth it for me, but hopefully the Burberry will come in a gorgeous mini bottle with the signature print on it. I’m picky about nail polish, but at least this is a color I’d wear.

    I tried to make a new account to get the $10 deal, but you can’t use the same shipping address on a different account and still get the deal :\

  10. I am in the minority but I’m glad I canceled this month. None of it is really my cup of tea. Think I’ll stick with waiting for my birchbox and MSA. 🙂

    • Agree Christina. Right now my only beauty box subscription is BB and I gift myself an occasional PopSugar- if I had the extra $$ would also do the MSA as well.

  11. I’m detecting an ebb and flow to monthly subscription boxes. There seems to be a WOW box every two to three months that keeps subscribers interested and willing to return. I’m wondering if quarterly subscription boxes are able to sustain the same type of loyalty and interest……

    • I think you are 100% correct.

  12. Got me to sign back up! I am hopeful that there aren’t a lot of foil packets. I am looking forward to the lipstick. Merry Christmas to me!

    • the photo Allure sent of the box and contents did not have any foil packets 🙂

  13. I love these spoilers. I am so excited for this box! I can’t wait to try every single item.

  14. I was tempted to resub after canceling last month but I think I’ll take the $15 and spend it on some Black Friday makeup deals!

  15. I KNEW they would have a good box as soon as I canceled! After 2 terrible months, I gave up on them, now the December box has me tempted, but I know I won’t wear red nail polish…and while I covet that lipstick in the pictured shade, it is more likely that I would get it in red or another dark color. It looks to be a fab box, but I’ve just signed up for MSA, FFF, and GlossyBox, so for now, I’m staying away from Sample Society.

  16. So glad I didn’t cancel! I had a feeling Decembers box would be great. I was planning on canceling if not. This box looks promising!

  17. I just cancelled after crappy boxes in October & November. Now they are tempting me to re-join. What a quandary.

  18. I am so excited for this! It will be my first Sample Society box, I think I will use every single item. I wonder if the hand creams scents and lipstick colors will be different.

  19. I cancelled after last month’s awful box.. and now they suckered me back in. I resubscribed after seeing Decembers spoilers.

  20. Wow!!!! LOOKS AMAZING!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

  21. Darnit, Sample Society! I had finally pulled the trigger and cancelled after two thoroughly lackluster months. But I’m a sucker for Butter London … resubbed, but I’ll definitely be taking this on a month-by-month basis from here on out.

  22. Trying to work through my product backlog, so I canceled GlossyBox a few months ago and this one last month. Am happy with my decision – lavender makes me sneeze and I don’t wear nail polish. And I need more perfume, eye gel and lippies like I need a hole in my head. Phew!! Hope everyone who gets it is happy though!!

    • Oops, just realized that Burberry is a luminizer not perfume. I don’t need any, but might have to look out for that in a swap anyway. I have a problem.

  23. Hi Liz, not sure where to ask this-I am new to subs (thanks to your site:) and trying to figure out how to swap items I won’t or can’t use. I am wait listed for your swap site-how do I get off the wait list? Are there any other places to swap I should be aware of? Thanks so much!!

    • Hi Allison – we open up the waitlist every 1-2 weeks, so you should be getting an email from us soon! Make sure to add [email protected] to your contact list so you don’t miss it!
      Welcome to the addicting world of subscription boxes! 🙂

      • Thanks so much Liz! Just had a baby six months ago and reading your blog is one of the things that kept me happy/sane during the many months of sleepless nights. Looking forward to soon finding a new home for some of my (few too many) purchases:)

  24. I’m excited about this box! I received that same nail polish in my NGQ4 box (that I might return) so I’m glad to get it in this box. I really like the color.

  25. I think this is a great box! But I loved the October box that so many people were so disappointed in…

  26. I really wish there was something like this service for men. I would love to get full sized samples of grooming products, scents, shower and bath products and other such products that are for men or unisex. I’ve seen some of the shaving boxes and such, but I want the whole package. Maybe someday.

    • Have you tried Birchbox Man? I’ve seen it advertised but don’t know anyone who gets it.

      • I’ll have to look into that. I don’t think I’ve run into that one as of yet. Thanks.

    • My fiancé has been subscribed to birch box men’s for a few months now and loves it! It’s 20 dollars a month but they send you great products and you always get at least one full size item.

  27. I hope that the Burberry is a deluxe sample and not foil packets

  28. Now they are talking! This box looks like the first boxes after revamp. Of course I canceled after 2 terrible boxes, now I am tempted to sign up again.

  29. Why must they do this to me?! I was so happy canceling last month, and now I’m this >< close to resubbing because I just love these spoilers.

  30. I just canceled after 2 crappy months, this isn’t really tempting, sad I’ll miss the Crabtree & Evelyn lotion, but not enough to resub.
