Now, onto the items!


Akar Ruby Tint Lip Butter – 2 ml Value $8


This lip butter is made with natural and organic ingredients, and it’s super moisturizing and provides a hint of shine and color. 

Here it is swatched:


You might be able to notice it from the swatch – this formula is a tad grainy right out of the jar. I was able to rub the lip balm in for a smooth finish, though.


Londontown Lakur Enhanced Color in Cheerio – FULL SIZE! Value $16

Subscribers will receive one of five colors: Love Bite #9 (cotton candy pink), Bespoked (blush), Cheerio (sheer pink), Princess Awaits (iridescent white with rose gold sparkles), or Fruit Tella (vibrant fuchsia). 


I’m in love with this sheer pale pink shade! It’s a great no-polish polish look. Here it is with two coats:


So simple and classic! (And this vegan polish is 9-free!)


Londontown kur Nourishing Cuticle Oil – FULL SIZE! Value $18


This cuticle oil works instantly to moisturize and improve the appearance of cuticles. And there is no chemical smell – love it!


Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum – 7 ml Value $2.85

This serum is designed to help “brighten skin and boost collagen health, minimizing the look of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the appearance of uneven skin tone.”

It’s a lightweight gel/cream hybrid that absorbs quickly and is gentle on my skin. Plus, I don’t always like Derma E scents, but this one is a winner for me! (I think it sort of smells like Fruit Loops, but my husband, Eric disagrees!)


John Frieda 7 Day Volume In-Shower Treatment – 1 oz Value $2.25

This treatment is designed to give your hair extra volume and texture. You apply it post shampoo and conditioner while you’re still in the shower, then rinse out after 3-5 minutes.

I’m on a constant quest for more volume, so I was excited to give this a try. It was easy enough to use, and I went without any additional hair products post-shower to make sure I didn’t mess with the formula.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get the major volume results I was hoping for. My hair feels slightly more texturized, but that’s it. (This may work better for people with thinner hair.)


Secret Invisible Solid Deodorant in Cool Waterlily – .5 oz Value $1

Secret is my go-to deodorant, so I’m happy to see this bonus item addition! (All subscribers will receive this, but it isn’t listed in the booklet.) The scent isn’t what I would pick for myself, but I don’t mind it, and I always need mini deodorants for travel.

Verdict: This box has a value of about $48. That’s good for a $15 beauty box! The only downside is that a lot of the value is in the two full-size nail products. If you like the Londontown items as much as I do, I think you’ll love this box. If you don’t, I think the March box might not be for you.

What do you think of the March Allure Beauty Box?

This box is regularly $15 a month, but you can use this link to save $5 off your first box. (If you sign up before the end of March, your first box will be the March box.)

You’ll also get this eyeshadow palette for FREE:


(It will ship separately from the March box.)

Comments (126)

  1. Wow, this is the worst beauty box I have gotten (march allure). Teeny lip sample, my nail polish was open which stunk up the box and it was in cheerio which is practically a sheer white. This box was such a joke and the shipping was ridiculously long. They can use ups or FedEx to avoid this kind of thing and they can get better products so it’s not like a Walmart box. Canceled, and not looking back.

  2. I too was very disappointed in my box this month. This is the first time Allure disappointed me so Im hoping next month is better.

    • Any April spoilers yet??

  3. For the first time in my 6 month sub I am disappointed. I got the lightest color polish. Way too light almost non existent in color. As the value of the box was in the nail products I felt the deodorant help to round out the box some even though it’s low value. The miss on the nail color makes me feel glad I only paid $10 for this box. I make monthly bridal boxes for friends and family, so the nail polish will go into one of those boxes. If it was absolutely useless to me then I would probably have been furious. Drama, drama, drama. Oh well one month left to go. Love my Look Fantastic with its deluxe sizes this month and my Sephora play, and I just got the Sisley box for March. So I do have some fun things to try this month.

    • Wish I could at least share what I think of the products. Still haven’t received mine. It was shipped on the 9th. These boxes take to long to receive.

      • Ang, I haven’t received mine either! It shipped on March 8. It went from PA to IL to Atlanta and then to Miami, FL. I live in South Georgia!!! It’s never done this before or taken this long! Then the tracking info said it was “In transit to destination” at lunch time March 15, but it was updated this morning saying it departed Miami around 1:22 am!!! What gives??? I know it isn’t Allure’s fault; it’s the PO. None of my boxes have ever taken this long before. And the funny thing is, I didn’t even want this box–I suspended my service until April. However, Allure said they never received that transaction and sent the March box anyway. So I just want to receive the box so I can “return to sender.”

      • Mine shipped march 6 and still isn’t here. What’s worse is that the tracking said it came to my city then departed two states away and was supposed to be here yesterday. I’m guessing they forgot to leave the pkg in the correct city before going to their next destination. Frustrating, haven’t heard back from customerservice yet. I’m canceling this sub since it’s gone downhill and the shipping is ridiculous.

  4. Excited about the serum and nail stuff, will use everything but the hair item.

    Will definitely look for the spoilers for next month because it’s getting boring.

  5. It’s sad my fave thing in the box was the deodorant, right? LOL, oh well. I got Cheerio too & hate sheer nail polishes that practically look nude. If I’m gonna go to the trouble to do home manicures, I want something that actually shows up. So that & the cuticle oil will go to my sister’s charity (they get a ton of goodies from me several times a year). I’ve gotten the 7-day volume in 3 other boxes, but at least it does work well. Even though I’ve been unimpressed with the past 3 Allures, I just can’t seem to quit it because it was always my fave and I suspect they’ll rebound. Plus, I only get two beauty boxes now (this & Allure) after having tried some 15-20 in all, so I feel like they are the 2 best ones out there. Onto April…! 🙂

    • This box *is* Allure. 🙂
      Which other one did you mean?

      • Oops, I meant Play! 😉

    • I hear ya… I was going to suspend my account yesterday, and i just couldn’t do it. What if April is a great month? I just added Satva for 14.99 a month, and I told myself when I started allure last year that I woukd keep it to 1 a month. but, i may wait for April spoilers..

    • I added 2 drops of red and turned my Cheerio into Blush.

  6. Does Allure still go those very large seasonal boxes or have they stopped that and changed to monthly??
    I’m a new subscriber and have seen those large boxes from past years

  7. My box and my mom’s box were both missing the lip butter.

  8. Very unhappy with this March box and February! Seems like this March box is awful because maybe they are giving so many of the eyeshadows to new subs (which I got that eyeshadow as a item in January box!) and they are trying to make up the price difference it costs them. Not sure but this is my third box and only liked one of the three so if next month isn’t better I will get another sub and cancel this one! Play! Has been another that’s pushing it but end part of last year Allure box was so great it’s what made me join. I got the pink type nail color in this months box and hate it… It is so not my color and a sample size deodorant is like a Walmart box! Come on Allure, step it up!

    • This box was only o.k. Certainly not up to the usual Allure standards IMO. I like the Cheerio polish and cuticle oil. The other stuff was not so good. I was shocked at the lip butter – that is the tiniest container I have seen in a beauty box.

    • This would have been a good month for them to have given us a supplemental shadow for our pallette.

  9. Received my box yesterday with the same configuration as the review above. I love the Cheerio polish!!! And I’m a big fan of nail oils…use several times a day and my nails are in wonderful condition. I like all my items and will try all of them…eventually. This month might be less than spectacular but overall I’m satisfied. The only time I’ve been truly disappointed is when I didn’t receive what was advertised. I cancelled once before and sure enough the following boxes were fantastic. So, I will hang in there thru the mediocre months. I like the Allure box b/c I discover new beauty brands and once in a while I receive a treasure (Le Mer, Foreo, etc). I never realized how much I would miss this box until I cancelled and downgraded to another box. It just wasn’t the same. I love the suspense of watching for the spoilers and reviews too! Thanks Liz 🙂

  10. My box arrived today and I received the nail polish in Cheerio as well. Was really hoping to receive Love Bite #9 or Princess Awaits. I’m starting to feel like the next few boxes may be a bit meh as well. I’m hoping that once they are done honoring all the $10 deals the value and curation will improve. That being said I can still see the value in this box because I am a nail polish hoarder, I always take my own polish to my nail salon…not sure the value is there for the subscribers who aren’t nail polish fans!

  11. how did you all have more than one $10 month?

    • It was a holiday sale. I am not on that deal, so 15.00 a month for me. It sounded like once I canceled, and resubbed under the 10.00 for four months that I would have gotten a 2nd January box which i didn’t want.

    • When I signed up, I got a deal that you got your first 4 boxes for $10. Next month is my last and I’m definitely canceling after that. My first box didn’t include the brushes and I have written them 4 emails and was told 4 separate times by 4 separate people that they would send them and never did. It’s been 3 months now and still no brushes. Those and the $10 deal were the ONLY reason I signed up. It’s not worth $15! There’s too many other great boxes out there to waste time and money on this. I love my boxycharm and Play! By Sephora and the Walmart beauty box . Ipsy has to be my favorite, they never disappoint and it’s only $10 plus a super cute makeup bag each month. I just cancelled birchbox but also get barkbox and since I got the FabFitFun editor’s box for $24.99, I’m signed up for that too and my spring box just shipped!

  12. I am done with Allure beauty box. The last few months have really been a let down. I agree with many of the comments…I opened it and saw the deodorant and the John Frida, and thought…this is like a Target Beauty box. The nail polish color I got is so light, it is like wearing none at all. and the other two samples are microscopic-the derm-a and the lip tint. Also the reviewer said that she got the eye shadow pallet for free…it was not free for past subscribers…it counted as one of our main items, I believe in the January box. I just feel like I could spend the $15 toward products that I will actually use. Disappointed.

  13. Disappointed in March. I was really looking forward to getting the nail polish, with fingers crossed it was the color featured above.

    Nails – received fuchsia, which I strongly dislike. Will give away.
    Secret – no thanks
    7 Day Volume – Have tried, it made my scalp itch.
    Derma E – I probably should, but I never bother with products like that
    Akar – doesn’t really show up. I don’t see the benefit, especially at this price point.

    Overall, I was very disappointed in this box. Didn’t care for Feb, either. It’s a shame because I have enjoyed Allure in the past. If April doesn’t bring back the love, I’m dropping them.

    • Try a thin layer of the Akar UNDER the Burt’s Bees lipstick we got in January. It looks fabulous! But yeah, I looked into purchasing it and was disappointed to see it was $28.

  14. I got this box as a first time subscriber this month as well but paid the 15.00. I don’t think the 15.00 is really worth it personally. I do agree the value is mainly in the nail products, which I do like but an overall value, nah. I unsubscribed after today. The beauty box from target has similar things as this but for 7.00!

    • I sadly agree with you, Caitlyn. Other than the two nail products, the rest three are ultra ultra tiny! Why does Allure give miniature sizes of drugstore items? I think the deodorant is a “sponsor item.”
      I cancelled as well. For this kind of box, Target is better.

  15. I just did a video about how great this box is and then we get this junk in the March box!? I get this stuff in my Walmart box. A deodorant!? Really?

  16. The lip butter is SO tiny. It’s like I’m opening my Play box. And the travel sized deodorant and John Frieda are something I’d expect from Target – Allure usually gives us full size drug store products. I know some people weren’t happy with last month’s box, but we got a full sized mascara and Cargo colorstick, plus two facial treatment items. I like nail polish, but not for $34 of the box! Plus 2 nail items in a month seems like a bad choice, especially when they’re the main value.

    I hope Allure does better next month, or I might consider cancelling this and Play to get something a little more expensive…

  17. Anyone else still not get their February box?

    I’ve been charged for both Feb and March.

    Cs seems clueless when I call and I never get a response to email cs requests.

    Disappointed because unlike other people I like both Feb and March box.

    • Julie, did you get tracking information for your February box? If so, contact your local Post Office. They should be able to research it and figure out what’s going on.

      • Thanks, I never got an email with a tracking number so I contacted them again and it was finally sent out last Friday.
        Hasn’t arrived yet.

    • I received my Feb box last week, it shipped on March 7. The sucky part is that I put my subscription on hold near the end of Jan to resume early March, because I didn’t want the Feb box after seeing the spoilers. I chatted with CS and they told me I didn’t put it on hold early enough. They also said there were delays shipping Feb boxes due to one of the products being held up in customs. Check your email for the shipping email, it will have the link to track your box if it has shipped.

      • End of January was not early enough to skip February? So not cool! So does that mean after we see the spoilers, it is too late to hold our account and skip that month? Wonder if cancelling would have stopped the box….?

      • Same thing happened to me.. I did mine mid Jan, resume date of Mar 1 and thought it worked until I got Feb box a few days. Not happy 😡.

  18. Damn. I was literally just talking about how I’ve seen more value from Allure than I was from Birchbox which is why I switched and now this month is a dud. *sigh*

    • I signed up but I got the Feb box. Not sure if I will get March? When do they ship?

    • Now that I actually have the box… the deodorant is so small it is cute which somehow makes it more appealing… LOL… The cuticle oil, I think I will like but I applied it to my nails and cuticles before painting my nails, so with one coat the polish was super sheer which I loved but I think that is why mine starting chipping so quickly… the lip tint was also super sheer with no noticeable color which is fine. I haven’t tried the other products. I find myself super loyal to companies, but I am starting to think it might be time to switch sub boxes. I only allow myself one (well I did get the target last month but it was perfect vaca items), but I am starting to look around… I might try one of the vegan or cruelty free boxes next. I want a good mix of skincare, makeup, hair and other random items such as deo, breath spray, etc. which is why I chose Allure…

      • Never put oil on nails before applying polish. It won’t adhere. Clean your nails with cutex or liquid detox, dry completely, and then apply polish. It’s always best to apply a bonding base coat underneath. Your polish needs to be completely dry before putting on oil. (just FYI) 🙂

    • Same here! What a disappointment this month…

  19. Just received my Allure box today and got the same exact variation as Liz did. I’m happy with this box – there’s definitely value here. The sheer pink is spot on! My go-to is Essie Ballet Slippers which has a notoriously streaky.

  20. I put my sub on “suspend”. You can even put a date in that you wish to start getting your box again. You don’t have to cancel. I saw the spoilers for March weeks ago so put my acct on temp hold.

    • Ann, I did the SAME thing, but I got charged and received shipping information for the March box. There is seriously NOTHING in this box that excites me. I put in 4/1/17 for my date, but for some reason they do not have a record of that transaction according to CS. I asked if I could return it for a full refund, and she said I could put “Return to Sender” on the unopened box and send it back. That’s exactly what I plan on doing. So disappointed in the past couple of Allure boxes, and I usually love them!

  21. Anyone know when the thrills box comes out?

    • hi, what is the thrills box?

  22. Hmm. Looks more like a Target box this month.

    • If May spoiler is not better I’m canceling too. I do t need more nail polish. I’m feeling like Target boxes too. If mot better I’m canceling and moving on. I don’t full hair shampoo. I only liked the serum. This used to be my fave box and when I chose to save money. I kept this first. I love boxycharm. I cancelled them twice and regretted it. Allure has better products and I been unhappy since I never got the mango shampoo that didn’t come. If the video shows it I expect itt. So up your game or take me to the baseball game of better bixes

  23. No regrets at all about canceling. I realize every box isn’t going to have a full-size palette, but there’s just no “wow” factor here. I put the money toward FFF add-ons.

    • What’s FFF?

      • FabFitFun

  24. This box looks fine to me! (It’s just a sample box) As long as the samples are fresh (not expired) and Allure is consistent with the items advertised, I’m content. I use all the products I get…eventually. I really like the variety in different months…alternating haircare, skincare, makeup, and fragrance. And I really don’t mind getting an extra item, even deodorant. I certainly will use it. I can’t wait for the C serum…and those nail polish shades are soft and beautiful for the spring (plz no fuchsia for me). Happy St. Patrick’s Day 🙂

    • I don’t know how this misconception started that Allure is a 5-item box and the 6th item is an extra. When/where did they ever say that?
      In the first part of last year when I was a subscriber all the boxes contained seven items.

      • Any items that are not advertised as being included in the current box are considered extras. And there is no guarantee of how many items will be included in any given box.

      • The newest info when subbing states 5 items. So glad I cancelled; Allure used to be my fav sub;-(. Totally agree with poster,who said it reminds her of a Target box…but maybe not even as good.

  25. I seriously better not get a deodorant. That is the most ridiculous thing. Thats something youd see in a target box. Ill actually be really pissed if i get a deodorant lol. I know its probably no biggie to some but thats super stupid. A suave deodorant! ? Seriously! ? Like that has to be a joke.

    • It’s Secret.

    • I feel the same way about it, especially considering that the selection otherwise is already so poor that a deodorant is adding insult to injury. Which was why I unsubscribed the moment I saw these spoilers.
      However, you got to admit that even a deodorant is better than a candle. 🙂

  26. This box made me glad that I canceled. I do plan on eventually resubscribing, but not until they send me my cargo replacement stick. The last smashed item took them over months to replace.

    • That’s what happened to me. I called customer service the day my Cargo stick came in damaged and they said they’d send a new one. Still haven’t seen it. I also canceled the subscription box because the items they are sending lately just doesn’t ‘do it for me’ anymore. Bummer.

    • You have to keep messaging or calling to get anything back. They will tell you it was shipped out but if you don’t get it message them again a week later. I was told so many things months ago when I was missing something, but I eventually got it.

      • Allure said wait 4-6 weeks for delivery. I have it marked in my calender when to email them again.When I had a problem with Septembers box it took over months for them to fix it and I had to basically nag them.

    • Better yet, correspond thru email only…so you have a message thread so CS can quickly review your case and they will know you are keeping a record. Tell them in detail what the problem is and how you want the problem solved. Tell them if its not rectified, you will forward your email thread with a formal complaint to the Better Business Bureau (BBB). If they do not comply in a reasonable amount of time, follow thru! You can file your complaint at the official BBB website, but remember, you must have a history of correspondence and all detail pertaining to your complaint. If you do this, they will comply. Allure CS is reasonable…the problem is a lack of communication between phone, online, and email representation. Email is best for complaint resolution. Phone and online chat is only good for general info and quick inquiries.

  27. Oh no! After seeing this, I just went to suspend my account but it is too late. It was just charged last night. Oh well.

    • Me too. Once my box ships I’ll suspend my account or cancel til they get back to the great box they once were.

  28. I got the $5 off and eye palette deal so I’m happy enough. My cuticles are looking ragged and that oil gets excellent reviews from the few people on Amazon who reviewed it. From what you guys say, this box used to be better, so I’m hoping it’s easy to unsub/sub based on the spoilers?

  29. This is only my 4th box with Allure. The first 2 were amazing. The 3rd was ok. And, I hate to jump on the bandwagon, but this one, I’m Kinda bummed about like most people on here. Not excited about anything in it although I’m sure I’ll use it all at some point. Reckon this is how it goes when I prepay with and use a promo code, lol!

  30. I don’t get this box but would love to swap for someone’s cuticle oil and most of the nail polishes. I always get my nails done at the salon but I take my own polish bc it creeps me out how many other people’s toes the nail polish brushes have touched.

    • I will be swapping most of the items in this box. It is really time for me to cancel. I hav3e 1 more $10. box then I am done.

      • Meant to add most definitely the items you want.

    • I do the same! Thought I was the only one!

    • I’d be happy to swap the polish and cuticle oil as I won’t use either one.

  31. Wow, just wow. Secret in an Allure box? I’m super happy that I cancelled after last month and will not be getting this box. I was really unhappy that there were so many different versions of the boxes and I always seemed to end up with the lower value products.

  32. Not a bad box, but not super excited either. This is a great box for new members who get the free palette and $5 off.

  33. I like this box and I think $5 off and the palette is a great incentive to subscribe. I think I grab a sub later on this month.

  34. Allure USE to be my favorite box. Not sure what has happened.

  35. What’s up with a majority of the March boxes for subscriptions are duds?

    • I was wondering the exact same thing just a couple of days ago… This month really sucks.

    • Yes! Pretty bad across the board for me this month too. I cancelled allure at the end of Feb, so I’m luckily missing out on this hot mess! But yeah, Boxy is lame imo, look fantastic is going downhill fast, again imo, and both my ipsy bags are disappointing…boo😕

    • I’m looking forward to the nail polish. It looks really pretty.

      I was wondering when there were so few spoilers in February if it meant March boxes were going to suck.
      I think I’m most disappointed by boxycharm, I guess Halloween is coming early this year. Wish I had cancelled.

    • Mine all suck, too! And Look Fantastic really did take a dump. I used to love it. Now it’s about as “good” as this month’s Allure box. Even Boxycharm sucks this month. C’mon April!

      • The Look Fantastic samples were deluxe sized and while there Wan an eye mask and a hair mask the March LF box is great.

      • Was not wan. Sorry.

    • I think it’s because it’s my birthday month, and I want them to be great boxes. The sub box gods clearly hate me. 😉

  36. I’m actually really curious to see which box I end up getting: February or March. I cancelled my annual plan in early February, prior to the last box in my plan (i.e. February’s) being shipped. As a result, this cancelled my February box too. 🙁 I was really looking forward to trying the Beauty Counter mascara. Allure CS re-activated my account, but they couldn’t say which box I’d be getting. I’m cool with getting March’s box, as I really wanted the Akar item, but I’m also hoping they pull on me what they do to people who un-suspend their accounts early in the month, and send them the prior month’s box.

  37. Cancelled mine would rather pay more for other boxes! TestTube was great this time!!

    • I still haven’t seen this months review for test tube and I’ve had mine for over a week.

    • Omg I just started with sub boxes and I did the test tube. Was very happy with it. Although this one isn’t great a free palette and $5 off might be worth trying

  38. Was hoping the Akar product would at least be full size and make this box worth it. It has been in other boxes in a much larger size to full size. It Very boring and low end box this month.

  39. I don’t subscribe to Allure but I wish I did for this box.

  40. Nothing to get excited about.

  41. This is an enormously disappointing box. Too many drugstore brands.

  42. Glad I discontinued for March. Feb box I adore. LOOking forward to April box.

    • Be careful when you reactivate your account. I had suspended so I wouldn’t receive January, and I didn’t reactivate until February 7th. They promptly charged my card that day and sent me january, and then charged 4 days later and sent february.

      • Good to know. Not right. Thank you!

      • They just did this to me for March as well. I reactivated March 3, they charged me and just got February;s box. Yesterday they charged me again, so I guess I will get the March box as well. …or who knows which box.

  43. What happened to Allure? Used to be one of the best boxes out there. Secret deodorant….

    • I am trying to discontinue my subscription right now, I don’t want to receive this.

      • I skipped this terrible month. I did the chat mode. First go to your account and suspend then go to chat and make sure you deal with someone. I made sure that if I skip I will still receive my 6 month deal. She said yes. There is a button to preserve your entire chat and email it to yourself.
        I also was missing an item from January and still haven’t received my replacement. She said that they mailed it on on a date that couldn’t have been possible, before I contacted them. With Allure documentation is key.

      • The thing is, after that candle and now this box I am just so turned off this whole subscription that I am not sure I will ever want to resubscribe again. Right now I don’t care if I am missing out on the discount.
        I am guessing the days when we got full-size makeup items with two SKII items all the same box are long gone.

      • I DEFINITELY want to finish out my 6 month deal. I wonder if these couple of boxes have been blah because of the deal. I skipped this month and will wait for spoilers for next, I’ll wait you out Allure until you give us those great boxes again. This was my favorite sub for awhile, but it appears that everyone is taking a nosedive in quality lately. Even Sephora has been a bit disappointing, but I still love you Ipsy

  44. This seems like a target or Walmart box to me.

    • Actually, I think even with Walmart you get a better selection.

    • My thoughts exactly…

    • When I saw the little samples and Deo- I kept thinking Walmart or Target box too.😶

  45. Not going to lie, I’m super excited for this box! I hope I get the cotton candy color! 😁 Allure is the one

  46. Not over the moon with this box, but that’s ok for me. I’m usually really happy with this sub, so a ‘dud’ once in while is no biggie.

    I am eager to try the Derma E & the lip butter – love the shade (a little grain that can be blended out isn’t a big deal to me) and some back up deodorant is nice.

    Hoping for the Princess Awaits polish! LOL

    • I agree – I don’t expect all of the boxes to be excellent. I am looking forward to the cuticle oil and lip tint so that is the a good chunk of the value… i am also happy for the bonus item even if it is deo. I get frustrated that they sometimes say 5 items and other places 6. Plus, Secret is a brand I am leery of buying since it broke out years ago. So, nice to try without spending $$ on it…

      • Secret broke out years ago? What do you mean?

      • Rash under arm pits… think it was sheer dry. It was 17 plus years ago…

      • Secret made me break out in rash in my armpits also. My odd! Havn’t used it in years because of it.

      • I have the same deodorant problem. Turns out that I am allergic to aluminum which is in most anti-perspirants/deodorants. That’s likely what happened there. Aluminum allergies are the most common cause of rash from deodorant.

    • My thoughts too, at least it’s all stuff I can and will use, more than I can say for some boxes I paid way more for and have since cancelled. For $10 I’m happy enough and hoping for the Princess Awaits shade too, anything but the really pink ones (but knowing my luck lately I’ll get the pinkest of the bunch LOL!) Fingers crossed!

  47. Liz, I’ve always wondered how do you keep your nails/cuticles so nice with all the nail polish swatching and removal you must do? Nail polish remover kills my nails and cuticles. Do you use a certain kind? I also have a super hard time keeping nail polish on, so I’ve kind of given up on nail polish in general. But I’ve always been curious!! Your nails always look great! 🙂

    • Thanks, Jackie!

      I use this nail polish remover:

      I discovered it thanks to a Birchbox Limited Edition Natural Beauty Box, and it’s great! Hope that helps! 🙂

      • Thanks so much for providing the link Liz! EXO is my go-to polish too, and it’s always sold out on Birchbox’s site. I wasn’t sure where else I could get it before now. 🙂

      • I’ve actually been trying to get that one on the swap site! Thanks!! 🙂

  48. Wow, how disappointing… Not a single item I can get excited about. I don’t do my nails myself, nor would I use a color that is almost the same as my skin. My cuticles are in good shape, I have no need of a cuticle oil. The lip butter I suppose it okay, but it’s not good news that it goes on grainy. The in-shower treatment didn’t get a good review from Liz. And Secret anti-perspirant, seriously?
    The Derma E serum might the only thing to look forward to (*might* be, depending on how fragranced it is), but I really prefer a lot more makeup in my beauty boxes.
    Also, I think $48 is the lowest value I’ve ever gotten in the Allure box. This is my last $10 month, after this I will unsubscribe.

  49. I do my nails at least 1-2 times a week and toes every 2 weeks so this box is right up my alley! I’m really hoping for the Princess awaits color!! I am meh about the bonus item just because I don’t use antiperspirants, but happy with everything else.

  50. I get my nails done so this box is a bust for me. I wish all of the value wasn’t in the 2 nail products.
