  1. I signed up via Amazon in November and did receive my free gift in the November box, no delay at all. Not sure why some are saying that free gifts aren’t included through Amazon signups? If they advertise it, which they did in November, they have to honor it.

  2. Oh my gosh I am so excited. I’ve been watching Laura Lee on YouTube and she said exfolikate is amazing and one of her favorites. I can’t wait to try!

    • Exfoliating is actually really bad for your skin. It can create micro tears that can lead to redness, sensitivity, and dry patches.

      • It depends on what you exfoliate with. If you’re using that infamous st Ives apricot scrub, then yes you’re creating micro tears in your skin. But this blanket statement that “all exfoliating is bad” is completely incorrect.

      • I agree! I’ve exfoliated twice a week (body not face) for over a year and have never had an issue. I think it depends on the product and how hard you scrub.

    • I really love the Exfolikate product, it’s very similar to the Acure brightening scrub and both are really good. Do be gentle though, it’s VERY abrasive.

  3. I’m glad this is skincare heavy. May just resub in January through Amazon.

  4. I am really surprised by people that don’t think January looks good. Lights, Camera, Lashes is one of my HG mascaras and the Akar and Kate Sommerville are supposed to be great, not to mention the Caudalie free gift if you’re new has awesome reviews on Sephora.

    • I like this box, but I hope I get the Gifted mascara. Everyone seems to love Lights Camera Lashes, but it is instantly clumpy on me and gives me crumbly spider leg lashes.

  5. I signed up by the wnd of november November because I saw they had ABH, now getting both my november and december boxes! They both look exciting! January seems great too, and taking a break from new palletes and lipsticks is good!

    • I did the exact same thing especially after being so disappointed in Ipsy last few months. I cancelled my Ipsy and never looked back. I’ve only received the Nov and Dec boxes and was so beyond impressed. I loved everything except the ABH lippie I got in Bohemian looked so beautiful on one lady who had posted a review of it on YT—a GORGEOUS mauve. But the one I got was straight poo BROWN! Idk what the heck happened there but it’s def NOT something i’ll ever use. That aside, everything else was amazing. Looking forward to Jan box. That NatureLab Tokyo hair shine is the BOMB! I ran out just in time so I’m happy to get this just for that alone.

      • Apply the Bohemian light handed any mix with a lighter lip color or lip balm.
        I received both color variants (two boxes) and Bohemian is my favorite.
        Mixed with a lighter pink it looks mauve and mixed with lip balm it looks like a light plum.
        It gives great staying power as well!
        I was thrilled with December’s boxes!

  6. I signed up Nov 25. Will i get nov box or Dec? I really wanted Nov box to be my first one. I paid for 3 months at 1 time. Ive been looking for a while. But Jan doesn’t look good to me at all. Nov and Dec was better in my opinion.

    • November will be your first box.

    • I signed up for their 3 month deal and I received it on Monday with the free gift. I received December’s box. The free gift box was awesome. I made some great gift bags for some friends. I’m happy with January.

  7. is there an option to pause it?

    • Hi Rena, according to Allure’s FAQ you can pause your subscription. We recommend speaking to their Customer Support team for further details. You can read their full FAQ here and their Support number is 1-800-274-1603 Monday-Friday 7AM-11PM CST; Saturday & Sunday 8AM-6PM CST

  8. Looks like it is just me but I will be skipping this box. November and this month are great January not so much. February is my birthday month so hoping that month is better.

  9. I signed back up through amazon for November and December and I will definitely be staying for January! Allures been amazing lately and January looks so awesome! Cant wait to try every product

    • I resigned with Amazon because Allure had my box stuck because of some payment weirdness.
      Now according to the website, it’s getting ready to ship.

      Oh, well.

  10. I love Allure box sub. I signed up for the BTBF bundle, can’t wait to get it.

  11. I’m feeling like such a boring ol’ grown-up that I’m this excited about a lip balm haha

    • Same! Does that make me old too? Hahaha. This might not be the most EXCITING box, but I’M excited about it because I could make use of every single item!

    • I’m with ya. After receiving great lip balms in my boxes I’ve become a snob with lip balm. There really is a difference.

  12. I’ve been using the Naturelab hair care since Allure sent the sample sizes earlier. It’s great and has a mild citrus smell. I got a sample of the shine oil that I’m planning on trying next time I wash my hair.

    • NatureLab Tokyo is so good! I have that oil along with the shine S+C, the repair S+C & mask, and one of the blowout jelly’s. I want to try the smooth line next!

      • The Smooth line is great. It made my hair so soft and shiny.

      • Agree NL Tokyo is so good !

  13. Definitely keeping my sub for January!

    The AKAR lip balm and Caudalie cleanser have me hooked in!

    • Caudalie is only for new members as their new member gift. You can cancel and resub and see if you get it.

    • Is the lip balm supposed to be good? I can’t wait to try!

  14. If I sign up thru Amazon, would I get the Caudalie?

    • I don’t think so 🙁

    • No

    • I signed up through Amazon and received the free gift. However, that was over a year ago and things may have changed.

      • Things changed. They stopped sending free gift through amazon about 6 months ago

  15. Oooh, those Akar & Vitabrid products sure are mighty appealing! I’m always excited to get Akar in a box, and I had to look up the Vitabrid serum because I’ve only ever received their shampoos in boxes so I assumed this was a hair serum, but read it’s a face serum. yay! That makes me want to re-sub even more 🙂 I’m hoping if I re-sub that I’ll also get the Caudalie cleanser too! Everything else would be a keeper for me too which is an added bonus 🙂

  16. Question- Does the new member gift come in January’s box or does that get shipped separately? I’ve been with them for a year but am thinking about canceling then signing back up. Thanks in advance! 😉

    • You never know. It might come in January’s box or they might ship it separately

    • Mine was in the box.

    • My gift from November came in my box.

    • I think you have to be cancelled for a full month before you sign back up. You could always try and get a different card and name (or prepaid card) and another email and sign up that way. …I know amazon dont do the free sign up gifts anymore.

  17. January is looking much better than December to my taste. AKAR and Vitabird are new to me!

  18. Just signed up for that December Black Friday special and just went back in and cancelled again 😬

  19. Yay! I just resubbed in Dec…this looks great! Not even mad there’s no color cosmetics (my fave to receive) in it!

  20. I wanted to drop Allure for 2020 but how can I when I love the Akar line.

  21. I cancelled Allure back in August because the thrill for this sub was just LONG GONE. But i love lip bombs and all things Caudalie. I may give this January a shot again

  22. That Akar lip restoration retails for $30. I’m excited to try it cuz it’s the time of year where no lip balm provides me relief.

  23. I’m actually looking forward to the January box!

  24. I love allure and I’m so glad they are starting out the year with a bang.

  25. This is the first allure box in a while I’ve wanted to try! I love exfolikate and a little goes a long way so this is a decent sized sample.

  26. Nice love the variations! Been wanting to try the exfolikate For a while . has anyone ever tried the Vitabrid c 12 products before? I’m happy there are no lipsticks in this one

    • I’ve been using Vitabrid’s Dual Mask and Vitamin C powder for a couple years now, but I haven’t tried this serum yet. The mask is definitely my go to for brightness and luminosity. I’ve been hooked ever since getting them as generous full size samples in Barney’s beauty bags. In fact I’ve bought more in their going out of business sale. Exfolikate is also one of my favorite exfoliants. So happy about this box!

  27. Okay. Maybe I will give allure another chance in January.

  28. I recently signed up for the Allure box and I really like it.

    This month looks nice, although I don’t like exfolikate and don’t need primer.

  29. I never got my free gift when I signed up. 🙁

    • I signed up almost a year ago but I didnt get my free gift until almost a month after my first box.

    • I found out the Wander mascara was my free gift so I did get it.

  30. Will all subscribers get what’s listed for January, or will there be variants?

    • Just the Tarte mascara is a variant.

      • Ok thanks 😀

      • Aww, hopefully not for a different mascara. Lights, Camera, Lashes is one of the only mascaras I can wear without looking like a racoon, and of the very few I can wear it’s the longest lasting.

  31. I’m loving the January box, so glad I got the 3 month deal from cyber Monday.

  32. Oh la la! After skipping December, I will be back for January!

    • Same. 😊 I’m glad I didn’t cancel completely.

      • Me, too! How many of the same basic ABH highlighter colors should one own? I am so over liquid lipstick, that I put all of mine away and will toss if I don’t change my feelings about them soon. This month is a goody!

  33. Feeling January’s box.

  34. Looks like a good box! After skipping it for most of 2019 I’m subscribing again in January!

    • How do you skip it ? I can’t find how to cancel it, can you please help ?

      • Hi Sonia, according to Allure’s FAQ you can pause or cancel your current subscription. We recommend speaking to their Customer Support team for further details. You can read their full FAQ here and their Support number is 1-800-274-1603 Monday-Friday 7AM-11PM CST; Saturday & Sunday 8AM-6PM CST

  35. January looks like a keeper. Every spoiler gets a thumb up. That’s how you start off a new year.

  36. January I will reup!

  37. Loving January. Very little variations. Only different mascara. Yeah! I am so here for this box.

    • I agree! I also love how skincare heavy this box is
