I got my box today!!! This is my first Allure Thrills box and I love everything except the fake nails and hair spray. It was a great deal for me, as I will use most of the stuff, and I will gift the few items I won’t use.

Laura R

Is the One Time Purchase availability going live today? May 15? I am waiting!!

Addison Grey

I can’t find a link either. Maybe that’s a sign that I should not buy,,,,

Laura R

It’s up now… Check this site under the ‘ALL’ posts tab on the home page.

Laura R

The Pre-Sale link is above in this post. Click on the highlighted blue “Allure Beauty Thrills” wording…

Liz Cadman

Sorry. I’ll reach out to Allure. I think it might end up being tomorrow.

Cassandra Grussi

I thought the 15th was the date to buy the box separate and not thru pre sale

Maria

I can’t find a link either.

Jen G

I’m going to do the presale. I figure what I don’t use or give away by the end of the year will be a welcome donation at a women’s shelter, so it’s a win*-win**-win***-win**** scenario.
*good stuff for me
**good stuff to give as gifts
***feel good for donating
****tax write-off

Sheila

At first I was also shocked that there were so many repeats from the December box and said no way will I do the pre-sale again, but then I realized that last year I paid the same price for only 3 boxes. Allure listened and gave a discount for pre-sale rather than charging more for the ability to do so and they added an extra box!! Sure, i will never use some of these products but I will share unneeded or unwanted items. The last box only had 17 items plus a bonus nailfile and now it’s 22-another plus! The final reason I went for the pre-sale is who knows what Allure might do in the next boxes and I never want to have to deal with trying to get a GREAT box and missing out. I love the Wen cream so much, that I feel that I am paying for that and getting everything else for free. Now that’s a deal!

Renee

I thought the same things. I’m hoping maybe we’ll get some extra “thrills” w/ the October box? Hope so – these boxes sometimes get discounted so much.

Luna

And, you’re getting that Wen product for almost 40% off too(!), plus all of the other stuff for free. 🙂

Sheila

Luna, you hit the nail on the head! When I said I would have bought this for the Wen alone , I should have said this amazing cream was at a discount as well. This box is a total all around win,win for me and I am so glad others realize what a great deal this box is. I am so looking forward towards using this all over, rather than just my arms and legs to stretch it !! 🙂

Jill

I’m new to subscription boxes, and I’m hooked. I would easily spend more on a trip to Walmart…. and I will use everything in the box, or gift or donate (toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc. are excellent!- make bags to give away) Maybe since I didn’t get the awesome boxes everyone is speaking about, I think it is a great deal. I love my cheaper sub boxes! It is the really pricey ones I’m more apt to really look at value, and can I find it elsewhere cheaper! The beauty boxes give me the opportunity to try new things, to continue the things I like, and to share! I hope allure does read the comments, and they bring the boxes back up to the level they once were. I actually do save money, as for the next year or two I am really hooked up with a beauty product for every inch of me!

Embarrassed in CA

Posting anonymously to protect my embarrassment…..I bit on the presale. I know this first box is a lot of repeats, but I am hoping that they are really going to go full tilt on the next 3….especially the Breast Cancer Awareness box.

I justified it because I cancelled all my other subs, it’s going to be my birthday gift to myself, I sold some leftovers on ebay and can apply the money, I have unused points on my credit card……wow, it’s sad for me….so many excuses…..LOL

Luna

Believe me…. there are far more people purchasing the prepaid boxes than you’d think. 🙂 While I still haven’t done it yet (but, I’m very close, and I’m sure I’ll cave), I like to look at this box for what it is at face value, rather than comparing it to prior thrills boxes. Since all of the products I’d keep are of good quality, and I’ll only be gifting a few of the products, it’s worth it to me. But I’ll admit, to bring back that “thrill” of getting these boxes, I do hope they continue to get better & better.

Jill

you never need an excuse to be good to yourself!

Bonnie

You shouldn’t be embarrassed! I bought it too…hoping that the next one will be better. If I get a year of repeats, lesson learned. But I almost certainly would have bought these boxes individually so why not? Lol…after all my hemming and hawing about not wanting to go over $200. You don’t have to justify to anybody, unless they are paying for it.

Embarrassed in CA

Ahhhh…..embarrassment easing! I knew I wasn’t going to resist though….I’m too weak!

Here’s to 3 fabulous jealousy inducing boxes coming in August, October, and December! Cheers!

catbert

Girl, if you are embarrassed to admit it even to us fellow beauty box addicts, it’s time to stop. 😃😀

I definitely can’t judge, though. 😄

Embarrassed in CA

Well, I AM admitting I have a problem…that’s the first step right? LOL

I’ll just have to press on my fake nails and march proudly down the street with my head held high…no shame!

Geena

Not going to buy the box, love both the salt spray and the regular dry shampoo already I’m going to be buying the beach babe dry shampoo though, so thanks allure.

Valene

Seriously still press on nails?!?! Nothing wow’s me. They’re giving things that are not new to us. They’re not trying with these boxes anymore. Some things are good, but most are old things that we’ve seen before. When we received the first 3 spoilers I thought that I would buy a full Sub, but after seeing this. I will not be purchasing the full Sub or this box.
Very disappointed!

Suzym

I agree with you about these press on nails! They are definitely not taking in all the feedback. I, too, bought these boxes when there was not a deluge in the market. They always had toothpaste and such, but they also would have an IT Cosmetics or Algenist product when it was new. Some of the repeats they just need to say no to!!!

Suzym

Sorry about the duplicate, I didn’t think my comment submitted!

Suzym

I agree with you about these press on nails! They are definitely not taking in all the feedback. I, too, bought these boxes when there was not a deluge in the market. They always had toothpaste and such, but they also would have an IT Cosmetics or Algenist product when it was new. The only product I see on that level is the Wen body butter – which I personally love but is too expensive for me to be a daily product. Some of the repeats they just need to say no to!!!

catbert

What is that white pencil on top of the toothpaste? I don’t see it listed.

Jayne

It’s the Rimmel Moisture Renew (lip liner)

catbert

Oh! Okay, thanks

Renee

I was wondering the same thing.

Taren

Can someone please explain why those dang press-on nails they keep including INFURIATE me so?!

I know SOMEBODY working at Allure has had to have trolled this site and read the comments over the past year! It’s almost as if the curators are giving us a proverbial middle finger at this point.

I have loyally purchased 2-3 boxes per season in the past, and December, I just couldn’t do it anymore. I was so excited for the next box and I see it’s the SAME box! I still have four of those unopened toothpastes in my bathroom closet!

Amy

Looks like a fancy Walmart box. 😕

Renee

This is really bad Underwhelming doesn’t cover it.

Cindy

I started buying these boxes more than 10 years ago and back then, they really were thrilling! It’s a hard pass for this pre-sell and for this particular box for me though. Extremely disappointing.

(Oh, and I’ve gotten three or four of the boxes with that toothbrush and none, not one, have worked.)

Michele P

My toothbrush from LAST MAY’s box works. But it sounds like an 84 Corolla stopped at a red light!

Luna

Haha! I’m still using my toothbrush too, with the others as backups. I really like it, but it does seem like it loses the battery power quicker the older it gets. I guess the motor can only last so long.

Sarah

Same stuff as last year :(. Still working my way thru the three toothbrushes…and for the love of Pete…what is with more fake nails! They got me last year….but not this time around!!!

Babs

more of the same stuff…..did the pre-sale last year and was not excited at all. Going to pass.

MissBailey

I remember when they first started doing their beauty boxes. They were filled with great summer time products (sunscreens, eye creams, moisturizers, lip balms, hair products). Guess with the advent and deluge of so many subscriptions, it’s hard to come up with new things that people still want to buy. I agree with a previous poster – the beauty thrill should come to a end if Allure can’t do any better.

Tjhanna

…and tanning creams, make up, a variety… Heck, even last summer we got a hair brush and make up bag! I agree!

Bonnie

And that Tangle Teezer brush is one of my go-to’s. It’s one of the things that keeps me interested in these boxes. Overall, they are pretty ho-hum, but when I looked at the review for some of the boxes gone by, I realized how much of the items I actually used. So I bought it.

Southernprincess

Kleenex and Arm & Hammer?? 😂😂

Laura R

Arm & Hammer toothpastes have peroxide in them + baking soda so they truly whiten. I am an Arm & Hammer whitening toothpaste loyalist and I have big, white, chompers!

P. ruiz

I hear you on this one!
Last year I pre-ordered all 4. And 2 of the 4 boxes where exactly the same stuff!!
It used to be filled with really great stuff!! BUT toothbrushes, fake press on nails? Toothpaste? I agree with a previous post! Walmart boxes!!
I order beauty boxes for the purpose to try new things.
Not for for cheap fake nails, toothpaste & brushes.

Goldie007

Passing on the presale. I definitely will not do that again. I received last year’s boxes and have many of the items already so buying this Spring box is not in my plans. Waiting for others to come.

Alissa

Liz- what do you estimate the value of this box to be? I’m on the fence, and I’m not certain I believe that the four boxes will end up at $1,000+ total value.

Svetlana7e

The value might be there, but I got so spoiled with sub boxes, that this kind of product is not appealing to me, even not a full size. I have so many luxury sample sizes, that would last me for long long time. I rather get another sysley paris sub for this money then box full of drug store product.

Tjhanna

I just don’t get the duplicates within the box. 2 eye make up remover pads and 2 sets of nails (which I already still have so this will make 4).

PJ555

Again, another disappointing “thrills’ box. Looks like they need to re-read the definition of “thrill.” Have not purchased a box in over a year and will NOT be purchasing this box.

viola

I going to wait for the CEW glossy box…hopefully prestige items in the box.

Jayne

(Posted on wrong thread!)

So 4 boxes….good. But apparently our first box will basically be December 2016’s box with a few differences. Works out to about $56 a box with tax/shipping. It’s not a bad price, but that repeat box is just wrong.

I’m not sure why they are keeping the Thrills box alive if this is the best they can do.
