  1. Impressive. And there will be 5 additional goodies on top of this serum. And I was going to run off with my December box and cancel. I will be staying now.

    • I was going to cancel too lol but think I’ll stay.

    • Lol same here…now I might stay…

    • You are not alone! I just got off the phone with their customer service to get the $10 deal. I think the guy was a bit annoyed but I got it and I’m all in for January! What? Now boxy, beauty fix and allure. Help me Jesus!

      • Are you a new subber or have you had it before and got the deal? I have subbed before but always have issues going through their site.

        • Me too. Every time I try to resubscribe the site confirms my order, charges my credit card, then cancels my order and issues a refund! I’ve given up on them. Signed up for Beautyfix instead.

    • Same here. I’m so on overload and was going to unsub for a while after December, but I’m in through January now! Love Sunday Riley and so glad that I passed on GB, since this will be in Allure!

  2. Omg I’m impressed Allure!! And here I was thinking about canceling after December.. Nope. Allure is here to stay! Bye bye Sephora Play! (Now I’m a poet.. Lol)

    • LOL….so long play and your samples. There are only so many sample a girl needs.

    • It’s says for MSA READERS ONLY. Does this mean it’s only for new subscribers who sign up through the MSA code? It wouldn’t let me make a new post to ask her this question. Can someone ask?

  3. Allure has been the most consistent sub for me since I started my journey in July. I didn’t get the Black Friday deal but I must say, this is how you market to keep customers after a deal. Other subs run $10 boxes but the value always seems to go down during the run of the deal, which doesn’t really convince people to stay once it’s over. But running a good sale and including amazing, high priced skincare that’s five times the regular price of the box is a move that keeps people around for more. I’m at the point of needing to drop a couple subs due to overload but this is one I’ll be keeping.

    • Perfectly said! 100% agree!

    • Being able to include the high priced skincare is indeed impressive. But I’m not so sure if they will be able to keep customers if they keep messing up in the customer service department. The CS agents are cordial but that does not solve problems. For me, CS plays a big part in the whole experience. After playing the waiting and chasing game through emails with Allure for November box, which I never got, they finally sent me a generic email saying that they are sorry and due to the delays I will not be getting it at all. I’d feel much better, had they sent me a little note sooner. If you’re going to expect larger “demand” for running promos, doing all kinds of marketing stuff, you better be ready and able to support your “supply” – business 101 in my humble opinion.

  4. I don’t care if the other items in the box are rocks and chewed up gum — still happy with this box!

    • LOL

    • I second this comment! The visual made me LOL literally though! I was just about to cancel Allure since I just signed up for the Tarte blush and Dec box but now I’m definitely sticking around. I’m so happy that the Glossybox limited edition box sold out before I decided to pull the trigger on that one.

    • Lol! ditto.

    • Lol! Ditto.

    • Ditto😄

  5. I bit the bullet on this. I was going to get the December box a few days ago because there were some things I wanted to try in there but I just couldn’t pull the trigger on it at the last minute since I still have lots of products from past and current Glossybox, Birchbox, PopSugar and FFF boxes. I almost bought the Glossybox Holiday box so I could try the Sunday Riley serum, but then just really didn’t want the other products that much. I feel like I’m getting a better deal with this and I’ll just cancel after the January box if I don’t like the spoilers for the February box.

  6. Woah!!! I’ve been dying to try anything. Y Sunday Riley. This just made my day : )

  7. I re-signed up! Finally cancelled ipsy. So I’m down to boxycharm and now allure. Pretty happy lol

  8. Dang I signed up for the December box but it looks like I’ll be sticking around for January too!

  9. Wow that’s amazing but unfortunately for me I tried this and broke out☹️ I don’t have sensitive skin either.

    • This has a lot of Vitamin C in it, which makes your skin photosensitive. So if you were in the sun, maybe that had something to do with it?

      Looking forward to trying this, and I’m floored it’s full size! Was thinking of cancelling after December, but I think I’ll drop ipsy instead. Thanks Allure!

      • Did it say it’s full size?

    • Would you be willing to sell your allure box to me? Or do some sort of trade? I used to do the swaps but it became too expensive. But if you’re interested in working something out let me know.

    • If you’re experiencing breakouts with the vitamin C, your skin may just be purging. I had the same thing happen when I started using a vitamin c serum, and my skin looked like it hated me for about 2 weeks and now it has never looked better.

      • I also wanted to chime in on this one cuz it happened to me as well… If your breakout was really bad with the serum you might want to try what I did instead. I used sheet masks with vitamin c every night or every other night until my skin finished purging. I also use a nighttime moisturizer with vitamin c in it after the mask. Exfoliate at least twice a week too. The breakouts aren’t as bad because you’re still cleaning, toning, then masking with nourishing ingredients that are also calming your skin while it’s purging. Now my skin has never looked better and for a lifelong oily skin lady, I’m glowing and more balanced than ever before. Give it a try before giving up, honestly you’ll love the results of you can take the time to get thru the purging part… ❤️🤗❤️

        • I’m so glad I caught this comment in the sidebar. I was thinking this morning!actually all day, that my skin has never looked worse! I feel like I’m going through puberty at 42. 🙄 I have little white bumps all over my forehead. Have broken out on my chin and cheeks-where I have never before in my life!

          • Michelle, I’m 43 myself and I know just how you feel honey! It will get better, I promise you that it will if you keep it up and personally I would try the making route to help with calming your skin while it’s purging… It’s too bad I can’t attach pics here but I used to have eczema on my cheeks and forehead, acne scars all over my cheeks, ugh stressed out skin yuck… Now, I have a healthy glow, no more scars, no more acne, no more eczema, just smooth clear skin,for the first time in my life 💞 you’ll get there too 😉 ❤️ 🤗

    • Jessica, did you happen to see my comment? I am willing to buy this box from you. Please let me know…

  10. This is such an incredible value for a 15$ beauty box! I am seriously impressed. 🙂

  11. So excited to try this! Surprised to see January spoilers before I get my December box. I never getting shipping notices from them, so I don’t know if it’s on its way or not?

    • I usually don’t either. A few times I received one and my box showed up the day after.

  12. WOW!!! Thank you Allure! I’m so excited to receive such a high value item in a $15 box! That’s amazing!! I just received my Holiday box from Glossybox with this serum and I’m excited to try it out. This serum was the only reason I bought the Glossy box limited edition. If I knew Allure was sending them out, I would have never ordered it.

  13. Incredible!!! 🙌🏾😍

  14. I would love to have this Sunday riley serum. But not sure whether to wait to subscribe till January, my fear is subscriptions may run out by then. Please guide. I do have sephora play sub which I feel like cancelling from Jan.

    • This is my concern, too. I don’t want December’s box, so I’d hate to sub now and receive it. If I sub in January and they sell out, would I get an option for a refund? I wouldn’t want a random box of leftovers, like they sent out at the end of November.

    • I’m thinking we will have to sign up quickly. They did this box with a foreo play forever ago when they were new and people went nuts signing up and then they ran out of that box without telling anyone and the month after was crap and everyone was pissed.

      • I was just thinking about this. I got burned in that debacle and have never subbed to Allure since then. This is tempting, but I don’t have enough confidence to think they’ll pull through for new subscribers.

    • I would just bite the bullet and sign up now if you really want it. I signed back up in November and did get the November box (I signed up wanting December). I too am having flashbacks to the Foreo Play box. I had already been a subscriber, so I had no issues with the box. But a TON of people flooded in trying to get just that month’s box due to the good deal, and they ran out. I recall a lot of angry people.

      • LOL I, too, remember that box! 😀 . I remember signing up to get the month before but having to wait until that next month to get my first box. It was my ‘first impression’ box, and I was very impressed. But many peeps were freaking out being unable to get that box. Oh my! I remember that very well. :-O

  15. That’s amazing. I’m pretty happy with my Black Friday 3 month deal (even though I still didn’t receive anything up until now lol).

    • it should come soon. I just got my box yesterday with no mail or tracking information. Such an amazing deal.

    • I did the BF deal and just got my tracking email for my November box today…I received the box itself on 12/2 haha. It does worry me a bit that they don’t seem to be on top of the whole shipping/tracking thing; I suppose I’ll be nervous until I’ve received my BF bonus box.

      • I did the BF deal too and still haven’t heard anything beyond the initial confirmation email…… here’s hoping mine is coming soon!

  16. Question for anyone who has used this product- is it pretty moisturizing, or does it leave your face sticky or tacky at all?

    • I would say it is more on the tacky side when applying but it dries completely after a few minutes, I have dry skin and I need moisturizer after this serum. It doesn’t peel or over dry my skin and I’ve seen an improvement on my melasma so, I’m happy to have another (got my first one from Glossybox)

    • I use this serum every morning and I don’t find it sticky. It’s lightly hydrating it wears nicely under my moisturizer.

    • This stuff is awesome! It smells like oranges, it takes about 45 seconds to a minute to soak in but it feels like a lotion over a serum. If you are more oily then this may be enough for you. I am dry so I use this and my moisturizer. I love it and can’t wait for this second bottle!

      • Thanks everyone: )

    • I LOVE this serum. I’d say it’s more moisturizing than, say, Drunk Elephant’s Vitamin C serum. It’s not super creamy but sinks into the skin comfortably like a super light lotion and, if you have oily skin, it might be enough without additional moisturizer. For normal/combination and dryer skins, it works perfectly under a moisturizer.

      • How would you say it compares to the Derma-E Vitamin C Serum we got in a box several months ago? Did you get that box and did you try the Derma-E? I, too, have not tried this Sunday Riley CEO serum, so like everyone else I am very excited. Thanks 🙂

  17. My wallet is begging for me to drop one beauty sub. I think it will be Sephora. So glad I joined Allure! November and December are fabulous, and this product would be a win even if it were the only product in the box!

  18. Legit screamed over here. Very happy I signed up for December and now I cannot wait for January!

  19. That is a value really hard to believe!

    • Yeah, I’m pessimistic that this will be a full-sized Sunday Riley…and I will gladly eat my words if it turns out to be otherwise…it was a mini Becca highlighter (which I am not complaining, it takes forever to go through highlighter) but they’ll throw an $85 serum in a box? hmmmmmmmmmm…

      • Agreed! I would be delighted if this is full-sized, but it seems a little too good to be true.

      • Liz has already stated that this is a confirmed spoiler in the full size directly from Allure to MSA. You might want to read all the comments from the beginning….

        • Thank you! I read thru the comments for this answer. Wow Allure! Way to keep a customer after the $10 deal ran out. Glossybox is done because of customer service and wonky site

  20. For real?! That is amazing!! I mean, I’ll have 2 because of my Glossybox LE, but that is fine. So exciting!! And here I was going to cancel in January.

  21. Happy New Years to me, lol!!! This just wowed me!

  22. Any little bit of FOMO I may have still been haboring after cancelling my Glossybox LE box last month due to their horrible communication and customer service has just been wiped away. I’m already happily subbed to Allure and this should be a $10 box for me. Win-win-win. So excited to still be able to try this!!

  23. No way!!! I just order the glossy box because of the serum!!! Should I cancel my order!?!?

    • The serum is awesome. You should probably have two. Lol

  24. Allure is SO much better that Play, Birchbox, Macy’s in my opinion…..

    • I think it’s better than Boxycharm too but that just me (smiles).

      • I agree….Boxycharm is mostly makeup.

  25. Nice!! I was thinking of cancelling in January, but no way I could pass this up.

    • Same here! Full size tho?? What’s one more month lol

      • I know. Even if this was the only the box I would be happy, Lol.

  26. I was thinking of getting the Glossybox Limited Edition since it’s back in stock and then I see this – OMG! Saved me some money since I am already subscribed! woohoo

  27. This is awesome! Just got it in the Glossybox holiday box and now I’ll have another month or so of it yay! 😉 😍 🤗

  28. What!!!!!!!

  29. Is it really full size? Because that’s insane and amazing.

    • Right??!!!

  30. Omg!! That’s amazing 😉 I love allure so I’m definitely going to keep even tho I would probably never leave ♥️ Full size is amazing😮

  31. This is amazing for a $15 box. I received this in my glossy box Limited addition and I’m enjoying it so I’d love to have another.

  32. Wow! Love it!

  33. yayyyy! Love this!!!!

  34. holy cow!!! am I reading this correctly ? Oh my god. Can someone slap me in the face that Im not dreaming about it hahahaa. Full size Sunday Riley product ? in a 15$ box ? Oh my god!

  35. Wow I am impressed!!! So great!

  36. Wow, full size from Allure? This is insane. Just received in the holiday GlossyBox and I love it. Now I can have one upstairs and one downstairs.

  37. Yay! I wanted to give up 1 of my subs for the New Year but it def won’t be Allure! Great spoiler!

  38. Sweet! I have been wanting to try this! Can’t believe it’s full size also…very lucky and ecstatic!

  39. That is insane, and awesome! Wow, now I’m really happy I canceled my GB limited edition, I got the one product I really wanted in Allure!

    • DITTO.

  40. Wow!!!!

    I just re-subscribed.

  41. I’ve been wanting to re-sub for a while now…….December looks good, and this looks even better!!! ALLURE IS BACK and better than ever!!! 🙂

  42. Re-subbed! 🙂

  43. This is awesome!!

    I so wish it would’ve been a different C.E.O item (like the moisturizer or cleansing oil) since I just got this from Glossy, but that’s just me being greedy lol.

  44. Wow. I was considering canceling (trying to cut back in anticipation of New Year resolution) but I am going to hang on at least through Jan now!

  45. !!!!! Awesome!!!!

  46. Is the full-size confirmed? That would be one high value box!

    • Yes, this is spoiler info directly from Allure for MSA readers! 🙂

      • Wowwie! That’s the reason Allure is my #1 box. You go Allure.

      • Liz,
        Did they specify if it would be in all of the boxes or a variation?

        • My understanding is that just like the December box, there will be no variation for January, but I’ll reach out to double check!

  47. Full size !!! Really??? OMG…that would be amazing!

  48. so excited!!

  49. WOW!! I am so glad that I signed up with the MSA black friday deal! This alone makes it worth it.

    • Me TOO!! SO worth it! LOVE ALLURE!

  50. OMG! That’s amazing!
