  1. I’m so tired of getting the Ciate Dewy Stick lol so I’m happy I didn’t receive that I actually use Flowerbomb on a regular basis so I was happy to get it. Plus the Thrive is soooo nice I’m so happy I didn’t get the brown. I love the Eva Hair Primer and The Dr Jart. Not to into the Akar toner and Lue but ehh overall it was worth it for the price for me this month.

  2. I got the Flowerbomb! I also received the Thrive lip liner. Unfortunately, it is a brown color! I hope i can use it as an eyeliner. The Dr Jart cream is nice as well as the Lue serum. My final item is the Purlisse sheet mask. Overall, Im happy.

    • What is the size of the dr jart cream?

      • Tiny. 5 ml / 0.16 fl. oz.

  3. Oh wow! I actually collect perfume minis. I need this Flowerbomb for my collection. The Thrive lip liner looks good. I’m hoping for the 1 oz. full size Lue serum as well.

    • I like the cute little bottle, but can’t stand the fragrance. I tried barely getting any on one finger to apply to my wrist and it was super overpowering, and I like many scents.
      Also, the Thrive lip liner in Valisia may be nice, but unfortunately, I received kackie, which should be called caca. It is brown with no hint of anything but brown. I don’t think this could possibly look good on very many people. Also, the tip of mine broke off inside the tube, but no worries because I would never have worn it anyway. Sad.
      The toner, tiger grass treatment, hair product, and possibly the toner as well will go to one of my daughters. This leaves the face mask and possibly the Lue serum for me. Not a great month in my opinion, but May is looking good so far. Fingers crossed.

      • I got the caca too. Horrible!

      • I got the caca too. Horrible!

  4. On the verge of cancelling I think I’ll try April but ipsy and boxycharm are way better. I did cancel Play! By sephora but if this box isn’t that great I’m definitely cancelling by May the last box I got looked neat but after using it it’s not that great of stuff.

  5. I hope I don’t get another Ciate Dewy Stix. I’ve already gotten that in at least one other box.

    • I got another Dewy Stick. Just received a similar Becca product in another sub. Definitely not for me—just make me look greasy.

  6. I’m betting the Flowerbomb is teeny tiny, almost like the little vial samples you get at Macys. And the Dewy Stick is full size. So they are comprable price wise, as you’re not getting a full size perfume. I already have the Dewy Stick, and Allyre hasn’t given me any repeats, so I’m hoping this trend continues.

    • It’s a nice sample size. It’s a mini bottle that’s so cute. I don’t care for the perfume but the bottle is s winner

  7. Excited for the Akar, Flowerbomb, and Dr. Jart. I would be excited for the lip liner, except neither of the colors – hot pink and brown – are ones I’d wear.

  8. I’m a sucker for sheet masks. That’s it. That’s the post.

  9. I collect perfume minis. I’m praying for the Flower Bomb. I do need a nice pink liner as well. Akar again? I really didn’t like their lip balm at all. Has anyone tried the mist?

  10. I’d love another Dewy Stick. I don’t know if I want to gamble though lol.

    • Im really hoping for the perfume. ill trade you if we each get what the other wants 🙂

    • I sure hope I get the flower bomb perfume! I hate variations in subscription boxes everyone should get the same thing or a choice of what you get because if you get the undesirable product the box value goes down usually

  11. I love the Primera Cream! Hoping to get that in my box.

  12. I hope I get a pink liner also. I can’t wear Browns. I’ve had to pass on many lip colors recently too. Wish they had a survey to fill out for your preferences

    • I just got my box. I love Thrive and hoped for the pink liner. Of course I got the hideous brown. I do like the formulation though.

  13. I really need the pink liner. I won’t use brown. I love flowerbomb! Variations make all the difference in whether I love this box or it’s worthless to me.

  14. well, guess i’ll wait for next month again..

  15. I’m tempted by this. The lip liner is a pass for me but other than that I would use everything. That’s rare.

  16. I’m super excited for this box. Even if I get a repeat highlighter it will still be a stellar box for me. Lots of skin care and a usable hair care product. Score. I also really like that highlighter I just need a new one heh.

    • Don’t*

  17. If the perfume was guaranteed I’d sign back up. 🙂 I’m not interested in the Dewy stick highlighter. I actually like highlighters just fine, but I’m not a fan of the stick ones and I have a zillion, including the one they are offering as the new member gift.

    But I would love the flowerbomb!

  18. Solid box, looking forward to getting it.

    • Awesome!! I paused box for couple of months. Not now must have!!

  19. Heads up. A different site lists more OR items than this one does. So keep that in mind, just in case. It says: Thrive Causemetics Lip Filler Long Wearing & Plumping Lip Liner in Valisia or Kacie OR Lue by Jean Seo Balance Hydrating & Calming Serum OR Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment,

    I was hoping for guaranteed Dr. Jart, and it just might not be so, sadly….

    • That sucks, I like the Cicapair cream, but am too cheap to actually just buy it.

    • Just got my box and got all the OR products you mention.

  20. If perfume was guaranteed, I’d subscribe.

    • Same here!

    • Me too! I love Flowerbomb!

  21. How do I cancel?
    I couldn’t find a spot on their site to cancel and I emailed them a request last week to cancel my sub, but I haven’t heard anything back.

    • Q call them. You’ll get a live human!

    • Call customer service

  22. Please Flowerbomb… not that I can’t gift the highlighter..

  23. This really isn’t fair and allure may lose subscribers, why would they have an option of the perfume vs. the dewy stick highlighter; which I might add that that product is a repeat!!!!

    • I agree. I understand variants when they’re in the same category like a serum or face wash. Or different shades or varieties of the same or at least somewhat similar items. But a hugely popular and pricey perfume versus yet another mediocre highlighter, and a repeat one at that, just doesn’t seem equitable at all.
      Yes, yes, I do realize it’s still a fantastic value and I’m certainly not saying it’s a dealbreaker. It’s just disappointing. It’s the kind of drastically different variants we typically only find in the various Boxy subscriptions. I already have that same little bottle of Flowerbomb and a ton of other perfumes so it’s not a big deal for me personally but I understand why others would feel slighted if they get the highlighter instead. I really hope this is a one time exception and not something we start seeing every month.

    • IKR? And it was only a few months ago?

  24. How the heck can the “either / or” between the Flowerbomb perfume and the Ciate London Dewy Stick be fair? Aside from that, it’s a really nice looking box. I hope to get the Flowerbomb.

    • Seriously

      Flowerbomb is wonderful and Dewy Stick is…. highlighter.

      • I’m excited. I’m fairly new but I subscribe to a handful of beauty boxes and so far allure is my favorite. I find myself using everything I get from there. But I’ve not subscribed long enough to get repeats yet.

      • I remember when I first subscribed, that everything was cool.

        Then I subscribed to another, and last year it was all highlighter all the time.

        I don’t use highlighter at all, so it was wasted on me.

      • I dont use highlighter much either, and I have LOTS even after giving away quite a bit, but I’ve started to crush the powder ones up and add to a new bottle of lotion. Like jergens or whatever you use…even bath and body works you can use it on..it gives a slight glow and not over the top as long as you don’t try to use up too many at a time and go crazy and put like 3 or 4 per bottle. Hahaha. But just one gives a nice slight sheen to it and it looks really nice on arms and legs.

  25. I better get the perfume and not the ciate glowy stix. I have already gotten that from allure

    • If it makes you feel better, they had a lot of repeats listed this month and I didn’t get any of them. Also, if you do get the Ciate as a repeat, call and let them know, they’ll replace it with the perfume. Their customer service is pretty good.

  26. Solid box, even though the Flowerbomb is really a stinkbomb in my opinion. I am thrilled to see a lip product in a berry shade rather than the typical cadaver/zombie offering. Toner, sheet mask, and anything Dr. Jart is always good with me. Great May!

    • It’s either one of two shades – Kackle is mocha, and Valisia is described as “pomegranate”.

      Good thing I’m not huge on lip liner.

    • I am with you on Flowerbomb. Surprised it’s so popular.

    • Agree!

    • The brown liner shade is cadaver ugly. Of course that’s what I got. I was just looking at myself in the mirror and swearing at how ugly it is.

      • I’m still mad about how ugly that brown lip liner is. Does anyone even wear brown lip stuff in spring 2020?

      • Not I, but I never do. I wish I knew if it was safe to wear as eyeliner. I would like a brown eyeliner. Seriously, who is wearing THIS color on their lips? I hope it looks good on some lucky person but unfortunately I think Allure just added to the landfill problem!

      • Not that I would personally wear a brown lip liner because it wouldnt’t work for my skin tone, but for women of color I believe it would essentially be a neutral shade and likely something that would work well for them. I always find it a bit disheartening that people seem to forget that women of color would like every once in a while to receive an item in a shade that would work for them.

  27. Cool! Never tried Ciate Stick and never want to try it. I’ll take that perfume though

  28. I will wait and see what Amazon gets .

    • How do you find out what is in theirs?

      • People posting when they get their boxes

      • Thank you for letting me know!

      • Do you know, if I were to sign up on amazon right NOW, if I’d still get an April box? I REALLY REALLY wanted that perfume! 😭

  29. I am excited to try the Thrive lipliner, and am really hoping to get the Flowerbomb. I got the Ciate in a past box, and while I didn’t dislike it – I don’t use cream highlight.

    It looks like a solid box though, after the box of repeats that was March.

    • My boxes were effectively all products I hadn’t tried, except for the UD liner that came in the Amazon box.

    • I am excited to try the Thrive Lipliner. I love their eyeliner!

  30. I really am sick of these either/or options-was planning on canceling but wouldn’t mind trying the akar toner and I love Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb but then saw that it could be that or Ciate dewy stick-those two aren’t even close in my opinion. I know it’s only $15 but really tired of receiving meh items that I don’t even want to give away-they just end up in the trash.

    • You should donate instead of trashing.

      • I’ve always wondered, who can you donate makeup to? The only place even remotely close to me, yet still kind of far away, is goodwill. I used to work there and I know they don’t accept makeup. If they get it in donations, they just throw it away. So where does one donate makeup to? Thanks!

      • I give mine to a friend, she in turn takes its to her churches store where they offer free items.

      • Look up women’s shelters in your area either for either homeless or domestic abuse. I donate my extras to a domestic violence shelter for women and they’re always so grateful! They leave homes with their kids and little else.

      • I do give a lot of the things I don’t want to my stepdaughter and niece and my MIL brings items to her church also but some of the products are just cheap-like manna kadar (so?) I don’t want to give out poor quality products

  31. Please let the gods of sub boxes look favorably upon me and not give me another Ciate London Dewy Stix, lol. Otherwise I like what I see. 🙂

    • I’ll trade you I’d rather have the perfume and still have the dewy stick from the other box

      • Umm…. I was saying I did NOT want the dewy stick.

      • Ohhh lol oops long day…guess we both feel the same about that thing

    • If you’ve already gotten it in an allure box (which I have), then they won’t give it to you again and you’ll get the perfume. If for some reason you do accidentally get a repeat product, just email them and they’ll make it right 🙂

  32. This doesn’t make me want to resubscribe…

  33. Looks good!

    I found that Eva hair primer didn’t do much for me until I applied it over a leave-in conditioner. It’s a great substitute for hair oil if you have fine hair that gets weighed down with product.

    • I am so very HAPPY with ALLURE!!!
      The boxes I have been AMAZING !! I LOVE skincare products and can’t remember ever having a “bad” box. I have been a subscriber for almost 2 years. Got my daughter to join too ! Keep”em coming !! 🤗

      • Agree. Maybe one or two products here or there but overall I am very pleased with Allure. I have been a member for 13 months.

    • Flower Bomb makes me gag. Hoping hard that I get the highlighter instead.

  34. Nope, nope on the 1st or…, serum-eh, dr jart-probably a tiny sample, another or 🙄, Eva hair primer- I had this it made my hair look flat and stringy kinda greasy, and another of. I’m glad I canceled. I was hoping April would be a good box… I think I’ve got better things to spend my money on and with with everything going on, I’m shut in and already having issues with deliveries. Allure needs to stop with the variations.

    • April box looks amazing. I hope that I get the perfume.because it will save me.from.having to purchase it..

      • I’m excited about the toner. I LOVE this Dr Jart cream, and I am so hoping I get the perfume!
