I tried to cancel this box through Amazon, but apparently it didn’t work. Anyways it’s a long story. I received it today and I am pretty pleased with it. Got Mamonde serum and Dr. Botanicals. Also got black pencil. I would of preferred Rituals, but can’t win them all. Floss is new to me product so not sure how I feel about it yet

Emily Collins

What size are the Mamonde Serum and the Dr Botanicals? Thanks in advance for your response.

Mandi

I’m curious to know if you got the cleansing powder or the dr. botanicals butter and if the eye pencil was full size. I skipped my amazon order but might decide to get it after all.

Nat

I got Dr. Botanicals. Pencil is not full size. MSA just posted review of it

Elise

How do I cancel completely. I’ve been a member for a year and half. I’m bored. I appreciate all the products I’ve tried. But I feel like I’m wasting my money

Monique

I agree. This was my favorite box a few years ago, but very disappointed in the selection now.

Jenn

My debit card they have on file for me expired. I was going to update it but these spoilers aren’t doing anything for me. I’ll wait til next month. If I subscribe again, think I can get a free gift? Is it better to subscribe directly through them or through Amazon?

Nat

You will not get a free gift if you sub through Amazon

Rose

Allure cancelled me repeatedly. They didn’t send boxes I paid for. Promised free gifts and replacements that never showed up. And every time I resigned back up the supervisor said I didn’t qualify for any sign up bonuses! They finally sent a refund check for the months they didn’t mail. But I missed the Huda and ABH months and some other great months!

Anna Antunez

I subbed through Amazon and got the free Hot Tools gift.

Luna

I can’t speak about Amazon since I’ve only ever subbed through Allure, but I’m always subbing and un-subbing based on spoilers, and whenever I’ve resubbed I’ve always received the free gift that was currently being offered. I don’t create a new account, but just use the MSA link for the current free gift (you probably don’t have to in order to get the free gift, but I do just to be safe), then purchase a new sub using the same email address I’ve always used. Also, I’ve never had an issue cancelling with them either.

Suzy

I can’t even subscribe to allure using a different email address without them canceling me, if I try to resubscribe using my same debit card!

Pink5

Amazon just treats it like a standing subscription that you can turn on and off.

The only thing I can state with certainty with Amazon, is that if you do subscribe, sign up as early in the month as practical, since they will treat that as your order date.

Tasha

I cancelled allure through allure and now sub through amazon and just skipped this month. The spoilers did nothing for me so I was so glad to be in my window to still cancel.

Heidi

I really like the Mamonde Rose stuff enough that I am using my second full sized bottle of the stuff that I bought at Ulta after getting the Allure sample., It cleans well without stripping my face of moisture. The Lue powder–I still have my last open bottle in there. It’s OK as an exfoliator but not one I reach for regularly. They also sent me that Floss gloss already in YUL and I am using it at my desk. It’s a good gloss and I will use another tube, for sure. If I get more of the Mamonde rose, I can use it for travel. The Lue? I will give it to a friend.

For me, Allure is regularly full of staples that I will always use but it usually is not a wow box for me. That’s not a bad thing as I will definitely use almost everything here except for that Lue stuff. I just really hope to get to try the lemon body butter and/or the shower foam.

JesCro

I sub through Amazon, but just decided to skip the March box. I wouldn’t mind a few of the products and would really like the Rituals product, but I am not a fan of so many variations. I am also experiencing product overload at the mo’.

Toni Marie

I wish I knew about allure switching up its products at the last minute because it’s unfair to their customers… the new editor had this beauty box unraveling.. I wish they would keep adding new and luxurious products to the box like they were doing before because it gave this box an edge against the others. Looks like I will be canvelo nbn g this box as well….

Nat

Allure didn’t switch the products. This is exact same spoilers that were previously revealed. The pictures are different, yes, however, if you read through variations, these are the exact same spoilers that were posted here in mid Feb.

Renee

I loved January and liked February, but this one not so much. Hopefully, they got my skip request. April looks lovely.

Angela

Can you skip months with Allure? I want the new member Ofra highlighter gift. Can I cancel my subscription and sign up again to get that gift? I know you can’t have two subscriptions or more than one box going to same address but you can purchase a gift subscription to send yourself and get two boxes a month. That’s the only way I can think of to get that Ofra/Nikki Tutorial highlighter.

AmyM

The variants are strange because they’re totally different product categories. All in all it’s still a good value so I’m not too concerned. (And I’ll happily take more Mamonde). It’s just odd.

Emilia

I cancelled because of the variations.

Taren

Argh! Looks like they’re trying to recoup losses after the big giveaway of the hairstyling tool around Christmas. I’m the idiot that was already subbed long term and paying full price plus tax and got none of that, lucky me. The last two boxes have been duds for me as well and I don’t care for a single thing posted for March. Honestly, I would have SWORN I saw completely different pictures for March spoilers a month ago because I’m certain I would have canceled had I seen this in time.

Nat

Yes, MSA had different spoilers posted previously. The written description was still gave all the or possibilities, but the pictures were different. I was originally going to get this box based on the original picture spoilers. They had Mamonde serum, Dr. Botanicals and the Rituals. Now seeing these spoiler pictures, I canceled. I sub through Amazon and they let me cancel even though my charge for this month was already pending. Dodge a bullet on that one. Highly recommend subbing through Amazon

Taren

I did but our account was hacked, and as good as Amazon is, they offered next to no assistance with recouping our losses. It’s been a nightmare fixing out accounts,

Pink5

I usually get the version in the magazine. Hope so.

Granted, it’ll be the billionth UD Zero pencil I get, but it’ll be worth it for getting the only Mamonde product I haven’t tried.

Lovely lady

I’ve have the Mamonde cleanser and it works really well. It takes off all makeup even eye makeup and you only have to use a very tiny drop. Like half a pump, takes it all off. It suds and lathers very well. You won’t need to double cleanse. The fragrance i find is tolerable and doesn’t give me headaches like most of the fragrances in skincare.

Pink5

I agree, the cleanser is nice. For a while I had samples of the cleanser and toner, and I would use them together when I remembered.

I didn’t notice any major difference in my skin, but I did enjoy the fragrance.

Mary

I had been meaning to cancel allure and finally remembered to email them last night. They already sent a response offering two months are $12 each but I will pass. It seems like the quality is going downhill a bit from a few years back. Even so, if I were young and not loaded up with quality product it would be a good value.

I’ve cut off almost all of my subscription boxes and I’m down to just Beauty Heroes which I’m pretty happy with.

With all of the money I’m saving I didn’t feel bad picking up the huge bag from the LA beauty show or when Net-a-Porter has a fab beauty box/bag.

Cc

Love Beauty Heroes and all the Net a porter bags also ❤️🙌

Melissa

Isn’t every single one of these a repeat? Pretty shocking. This box used to be like, curated.

Lili

I skipped this box, after the preview. Could not believe it was all repeats, think they are recycling, their inventory. So sad, for us veteran subscribers.

DoxyMama

And the “or” is getting a little bizarre. Shower Foam OR a gel eye pencil? I wish I had remembered to skip this month. I have just about all of these products and some more than one. I hope I don’t get the Lue…..that stuff is awful. It’s like putting flour on your face. The gloss is thick and sticky and is a big NO to me and my 13 year old niece. The only saving grace for this box is the Mamonde. It will be a small sample but I have loved everything I’ve used in their line. Oh, and the Rituals is great too but I’m pretty sure there’s a black eye pencil with my name on it…..😑

Amy S

How do you skip?

Dawna

It’s faster if you call. 1 (800) 274-1603

AP

I called and gave up after 15 minutes on hold… I guess I’m getting the box this month 😉

bunnygirlbrem

If anyone gets this from Amazon, please post what is included. Thanks!

Anne

wow. I literally have every one of those currently sitting in my closet, some unopened and a few, like the Lue, Mamonde, and Nikkietutorial, I have more than 1. Do not regret cancelling Allure… :/

Jenna

I dont know about everyone else… but I have gotten ALL of these. Sans the liner already! Whats up with Allure doing repeats! SINCE WHEN.
They are my fave sub box. Best value. Always good stuff. Have always responded to emails right away. Fixed issues quickly. But I have about 10 of those face washes. However…they are pretty damn awesome. And a face wash has to be great for me to say that.

Lace

Glad I cancelled this box a couple of months ago. Didnt like feb nor this march box. I’ll sign back up if they make it worth it again.

AH

I just logged into my account. The picture they show for their Allure box shows full size Sunday Riley, Oribe and Nars, plus smaller sizes of Sunday Riley, Oribe and Christian Dior. Instead of those high end items, we’re stuck with REPEATS of Mamonde, Jul, and Lue. I have gotten all these before, and seriously can’t even give them away! How can they get away with doing so many repeats?I realize that the website picture is just a “representation” of what you might get rather than an actual box…but talk about a bait and switch! What a disappointment–Allure has gone WAY downhill.

bunnygirlbrem

If you get this from Amazon, please post what you get!

denise atkinson

just got mine from amazon and it was the red serum, the hand cream, and the urban decay liner, hyaluronic face mask. and lax lip gloss, and the mascara. other than the eyeliner i’m pleased with it. i still never tried the rituals shower foam. crazy right?

Dawna

Or, or, or, or,or…. No, no, no, no, no… I canceled for a few months. Signed back up for January and received a full size cleanser. Skipped February and definitely skipping March. Maybe I should just cancel again???

Angela

Pretty irritated the full spoilers are released the day they take payment. I would have cancelled. All of these are repeats for me other than the sheet mask, and I do not like sheet mask. I know I’m going to sound like a big baby, but I really hate that lip gloss (I’ve literally received it twice) for some reason this lipgloss has a odd chemical taste to me. I guess there’s always next month.

AprilAriesPb

They released full spoilers for March on February 12th.

Julie

I agree, I love to see new products that are being released for 2020 in the box.

Denise Atkinson

No thrilled with some repeats, although some are from a box I skipped so those will be fine. I just don’t need more of the momande that I have already. That being said, I at least TRUST allure to have REAL products consistently so for that reason I keep this box. If I do get a repeat that I give to someone at least I don’t need to worry about giving someone a potentially fake or dangerous product, so there’s also that.

Stephanie

Exactly! I trust Allure to have real quality products so if I Get a repeat here and there it’s no big deal.
