  1. Hi Liz,
    Does this box still exist?? I’ve been waiting for the Spring 2016 box notification and I haven’t seen it. The website is also MIA. Did they discontinue this box? I’ll be very sad to see it go. Thanks for all you do!! 😉

    • Yes, the Allure Beauty Thrills box will be happening again. As soon as I get info on the date and what’s included I will post! 🙂

      • Do you have to be a subscriber to order the Beauty Thrills box? I subscribed for Allure’s April box but I canceled b/c I’m trying to keep my subs limited to Birchbox, Target and Walmart. (And struggling … the Allure one was so beautiful, and it was my first experience with ABB.)

    • Oh my goodness! I was just wondering the same thing. I can’t find any mention of it on the Allure site.

      • And I can’t even sign into my account. It just takes me to like facebook. Who can I email at allure?

  2. Does anyone know when the Spring 2016 box is coming out? ~CM

  3. Did they have a pre-sale too last year? If so, for anybody who got it, did you guys get the box earlier than everyone else? Thanks!!

    • I live NY/Long Island and I either got it day before or day after.

  4. I just got a note saying I made the cut and the code would be in another email but did not get that and I have checked spam/junk.
    Did anyone get the email about getting the code and get the code later that day or the next day? Worried I won’t get the code!

    • I got the email today that I was one of the 500 but got my code on Monday and it was in my spam. There is an email on the confirmation, that says you can reach out for questions. it is: [email protected]

      I’m sure you’ll get it!

    • Check your junk mail; mine was sent there!

    • I got me email saying I had made the cut but I couldn’t find the other email in my junk folder. I emailed them back and they resent the code. Just ordered my 3 boxes. Good luck.

      • Do you feel it was worth it to order all three at this pricing?? I’ve gotten in on a couple in the past but don’t like the extra premium price here.

    • Same happened to me, checked spam, deleted, everything. So I emailed using the address in the email telling me I was one of the first 500 and they got back to me with a code the same day.
      Now I can’t decide if $66 is worth it for each box. I wish I could pay in installments as $200 is a chunk of change right now. Really can’t decide! I know they are great values, just hard to put that out and wait all the way to December to get the value.

      • I received my code email before the email telling me to look for one. I agree about the $$. Last year I did it, but didn’t read the fine print so I thought I was paying same as everyone. I don’t care about the expedited shipping, waited about few days is fine with me. I did love that I never had to worry about being online at a certain time stressing out. Is that worth the extra $10 per box and $200 upfront.

    • Just wanted to say that I got a code a few days ago. So maybe they don’t all go out at the same time, or some email servers slowed down the emails. I would keep checking spam and junk folders.

      • I did get my code. Thanks all!

    • Thanks so much for sharing this with us!

  6. Out of curiosity, how do we know if we made the “first 500” cut off?

    • I received my code today!

      • I received my code today, too and I received the sign up several days after people starting getting emails from Allure.

        • YEAH! It was in my SPAM folder =) Thanks Suzym

          • : )

    • I got my code today. check your spam/junk mailbox. that’s where I found mine.

      • Mine was in my spam/junk folder too! I was a few hours late to the email so was sure I didn’t make the cutoff! Yay!!

  7. Derma-e Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Retinyl Palmitate Crème on the left and Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Glycolic Cleanser in the middle, Suave volumizing hair product and suave Sea Mineral Infusion Moisturizing Body Shampoo + a serum of foam, Clear Active Damage Resist Shampoo and conditioner, Dove’s NEW go fresh Revitalize Body Wash, Ponds Anti-Wrinkle Cream, Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Cleansing Conditioner, Cetaphil Intensive Moisturizing Cream, Biore Charcoal
    Pore Minimizer, Venus & Olay Razor in Sugarberry (not the new one :(), Dickinson’s Witch hazel cleansing wipes (good eye CJ!), and a bunch of colgate so overall well rounded box except EXACTLY what Cindy said, why no sunscreen??????

  8. I’m disappointed there is no sunscreen product in this box since it’s the only box prior to summer. August is too late for sunscreen in my area. Besides, wouldn’t everyone already have bought it by August?

  9. I am going through my old emails and came across the presale email. I know I am not in the first 500 LOL. It says codes will go out around April 9th. Someone asked how to join. It’s easy and the website is allurebeautyenthusiasts dot com.

  10. Setting a reminder now! This box looks amazing and will save me from buying a bunch of things from the drugstore that I won’t use!

  11. I am so excited to see that the new box is coming out soon! I have loved pretty much everything from the winter box (which was my first one) and have been stalking my emails from MSA to see when the next one would be coming out. I am surprised I didn’t get an email for the new one coming out from Allure since I thought I signed up for emails? But now I know when to be ready and I will stalk the website and cross my fingers that I get one. From the small picture it looks like a lot of stuff I would use, I loved the Not your Mothers product in the last box, I’ve never tried the leave in conditioner but I like their products so I’m excited. I’m hoping for more skin and hair products!

    • The emails go out kind of funny. I’m signed up as an Allure Insider with two different email addresses. One gets the emails much earlier than the other, sometimes by a whole day or two.

      They sent a reminder to sign up for the presale today. So I don’t know if that’s just an automated thing that goes to everyone who hasn’t signed up, or if they actually have presale spots left.

  12. when I did it yesterday, there were no boxes to fill in. Guessing if you all submitted info that means you got in. Mine was just a link and a thank you page.

    • That’s what mine did too. But I literally clicked the link within a few minutes of receiving the email. Sooo….I don’t know.

  13. Was anyone able to pre-order? I really wanted to because I work at a job that doesn’t really allow me to be on-line at the exact moment boxes go on sale, so I am willing to pay a little more just to know I “got one”. However, because of said job I could not reply to the email until about 45 minutes after I got it. Just curious how the pre- order worked out for people.

  14. I just saw my email for the pre-sale. I clicked and filled out everything. I’m hoping I am in the first 500 even though I was 2 hours late.

  15. Preordering the 3 boxes is more expensive than buying one by one, I’ll wait until April if my financial situation improves 🙂

    • It is a lot easier for me to come up with $50 or so at a time than $200.

      I did buy one of these (Winter of last year) and mostly liked it (not the toothpaste, though, that had a weird aftertaste), but I still have a lot of items from it that are pretty full. Not that I’m not using them, just that I have so much stuff it doesn’t make a lot of sense (for me) to buy more right now.

  16. CLEAR shampoo & conditioner, Suave sea mineral infusion body wash, Revlon Eye Art, Venus Swirl razor, Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Cleansing Conditioner. A lot of the stuff is in the April issue Ads. 🙂

    Either way….I’m excited. Any of the stuff I don’t like, I give to my coworkers, they love me. lol.

    • I’m coming to work with you;)

  17. Hey, where are you guys seeing the preorder form?

    • It was emailed to you if you are an Allure Beauty Enthusiast.

      • How do you become an enthusiast?

  18. I also recognize Cetaphil, Pond’s, Dickinson’s Witch hazel cleansing wipes, and maybe Yes to Tomatoes.

  19. I have a question about the pre-order. We can pre-order all 3 boxes for $199.95. But individual boxes have been $44.95 plus $10 for shipping. Are the prices being raised or are we paying more for the convenience of pre-ordering?

    • I think it’s for the convenience of pre-order, and I do believe that it ships out earlier too when you have pre-order status. I’ve seen people receive them the week of the sale, instead of waiting on shipping.

      • Thanks!

    • How can you pre-order the boxes?

    • Good point. That’s kind of shady that we would pay an extra $10/box for pre-order.

  20. I’m seeing Ponds, Cetaphil, Not Your Mother’s, Secret, what looks like a Venus razor (hopefully that new pivot ball one)

  21. How much is this box?

    • We don’t know the price yet or the date it goes on sale, but it usually is around $50.

      • It goes on Sale April 28th. And it’s $44.95 plus $10.00 shipping/handling. 🙂 It said it in the sign up thing for the early access purchase. I hope I can get the 3 boxes for $199, it’s just easier than dealing with the hassle!!!! lol.

        • Oops – thanks!

  22. This box looks great! I still have the last two I haven’t used much from but I love Suave, Dove, Secret, Colgate, I’ve been wanting to try the Clear Scalp and Hair. I’m over the John Freida though, you can’t give those products away.

  23. How do we order this? Looks awesome!

  24. I’ve already signed up to hopefully be one of the first 500 for the pre-sale! Within 12 minutes of the email I signed up but I bet I’m way past the 500 already lol

    • Darn – I just signed up and would imagine that 30 minutes into the email distribution I would be somewhere in the first 50,000 not 500.
