  1. I must have clicked the wrong link because I was charged the full $60 plus tax, not the discounted $40 as a subscriber. Does anyone know if customer service will refund me the difference?

  2. I got the EXACT same eyeshadow I got like a month ago 🙁

  3. Just got mine yesterday. Great box! Glad I got the annual, since it includes discount on this!

    • ALL subscribers get the $20 discount on this box, not just annual subscribers. 😉

  4. Does anybody know when this will ship out? I ordered on the first day, received the confirmation email but no notification it has shipped.

    • The fine print says in 20 business days which is basically one month later.
      “Your box should ship within 20 business days after your order is placed, though it may be earlier depending on what day of the month you place your order.”

      • Thank you! I won’t be looking for it right away then!

    • Wondering when this will ship out as well. Ordered this on 10/2/2020 and still have not received a shipping label. Guessing this will probably take 8 weeks to ship?

      • I ordered two boxes and got them in the middle of last month! Maybe hit up customer service.

      • I got mine about a month ago.

  5. I ordered this box 3 days ago but they haven’t taken my payment out of my account yet. Do they wait until the box is shipping to take it?

    • I ordered Monday and have not been charged yet. I did get a confirmation email right when I ordered. So they probably don’t charge until it is ready to ship.

      • I just got charged a couple of hours ago so give it a couple days.

    • I got charged also about an hour after I posted my last response.

  6. I’m very confused. In the magazine, this box also was said to include By Terry’s Baume de Rose but it doesn’t seem to be listed here. Does anybody know what that is about?

    • I saw that too in the allure magazine but I have no idea why it’s not there now. I clicked like I was going to purchase and it listed the products. That item is not listed….

  7. Wow, I remember when the extra allure boxes came out there would be like 30 different products to try out and they were all full size and good products….this looks as compared to those.

  8. Has anybody been charged or got a confirmation email? I made the order yesterday by calling allure cs, but no email or charge yet

    • I just got charged a couple of hours ago so give it a couple days.

      • Thank you! I also got charged earlier today. Still no shipping or confirmation email which is odd but I’ll give it a couple days and see what’s up!

  9. Has anyone who subscribes through Amazon been able to purchase this box at the subscriber’s rate? I followed the prompts but haven’t had any luck🤔….

  10. Can you get the discount if you subscribe through Amazon?

    • No. They really are trying to get you to sub through Allure

      • I was able to order this box at the discounted rate after subscribing through amazon. But I did have to wait a little while – until allure sent me notification that my account was live.

      • Considering how terrible their website functions are I’m surprised they don’t put a little money into that. I subbed through Amazon purely because of the hassle of their site. One of the bigger problems is being redirected to a magazine subscription I don’t have or want!

  11. I ordered this purely for the eye cream because I have the serum from that line and love it. I have no idea what I’ll do with the rest of it, I have so much product that I really need to skip a few months, but I get FOMO.

    • I ordered it for the same reasons. Love the serum, and didn’t want to have FOMO. 🙂

  12. In the email they make it sound like the Youth To The People’s Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask is full size but it doesn’t look full size and the size isn’t listed on their web page either. But the email reads:
    “For just $40, you’ll receive 11 products (including five full-size favorites), like OLEHENRIKSEN’s Banana Bright Eye Crème, the EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46, Kevyn Aucoin’s Glass Glow Face and Body Gloss, and Youth To The People’s Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask. That’s over $200 in value!”

    They List 4 Full Size Products followed by the Youth To The People product in the same sentence as if it’s Full size too. Does anyone know if this is the full size or the 15 ml. size?

    • No, it’s not YTP… it’s the eyeshadow. If you look on their website, it lists out the full size products.

  13. How do you get the box for $40? I am a subscriber but it says $60 when I click the link. Will it drop to $40 after I put in my payment info?

    • After you click on the link, go to the next link that appears right after “Already a member?”

    • When you click on the link, I think the 3rd paragraph in the body of the notice it says if you are already a member click here. That is where you can order for $40.

  14. I purchased this yesterday and received a confirmation email but am not seeing the charge on my card. Is this the case with everyone else? Worried that something went wrong with my order.

    • @Jennifer – your charge typically only gets charged when the item ships.

  15. I want to know who have these products awards? I certainly disagree that these are award winners.

    • I believe Allure magazine devotes its October issue every year to its selection of best beauty products every year. It’s an extensive list, and these are probably just a few of their winners as selected by their writers, editors, and readers. You’re certainly entitled to your own opinions as they may differ from the masses.

    • They are listed on the Allure website.

  16. Tempted to grab this at $40 for the Ole eye cream and Elta sunscreen, but I placed an order with Ulta and one with Birchbox over the weekend, so I’ll have to pass. Great deal, but I’ve too much stuff. My first Allure box was just delivered today as well. Looking at all my stuff, I’m glad I only signed up for three months.

    • OMG! Exactly… Too much stuff. It doesn’t sell as well on my local Facebook group asi would have thought.

      • You mentioned a local FB page. How does that work? Only have Allure right now, but want to build a stash for Christmas make up bags I’m sewing. Looked on FB, but worried I’ll get scammed. Thx!

  17. I love elta MD sunscreen and still it’s my lifesaving item. No hesitate to take this box!

  18. I’ve subbed to many boxes since 2013 but I don’t recall ever getting the sunscreen or eye cream. I must not get those boxes. I’ve been wanting to try the sunscreen as it’s recommended for those with rosacea, like me. The eye cream and sunscreen pay for the box.

    • I’m a long term subber too and don’t recall the SPF and I know I never got that eye cream as it is something I’ve been dying to try. Since it is the cost of the box think I’m going to cave. I’ll list what I don’t want on the swap site.

  19. It’s $40 for members so I grabbed it for the full size eye cream and spf. I will thoroughly use both those products. The other products are just bonuses.

  20. I ran out of the exact Ole Henriksen Eye Cream. It retails for $39. So At $40, its like restocking my eye cream and getting everything else as GWP! (That’s how I reason with myself and not feel guilty for buying. Lol).

    • Omg I’m the same way it’s a terrible trait of mine! Lol

  21. all these products are older products…everybody that gets beauty boxes has these already…i mean that’s whats wrong with all these boxes…get some new products people it’s out there..i wish there were some new beauty boxes also..

    • It literally says “11 products who’ve made the cut over the years.” It’s not marketed as being a LE box for discovering new products.

  22. Pass.

    I already either have or don’t like most of this.

  23. What lovely flowery prose they wrote for how they “selected” this collection. Half the items are the leftovers from the warehouse. Nothing wrong with packaging leftovers to sell, but don’t pretend that you actually went out and procured this stuff because you wanted to add these amazing products (that you didn’t already have in the warehouse) to the package.

    Natasha Denona singles: the exact three shades that were given out in the boxes some months ago. I don’t suppose that ND only manufactures three shades. I don’t mind leftovers; I do mind lying.

    • Those ND shadows are from when I still
      Subscribed. I believe those were in a summer 2019 box. I really enjoy using it still but I would be worried if I got this, I could get a repeat shade.

      I have subbed since then but seems like a lot of these products look familiar or are frequent in sub boxes.

      • Silk is expensive. The slip scrunchies retail 3/20 or 6/39 or about 6.80 ea. In addition the sunscreen is 29.50. So that is already $37.

        (personally my favorite in the box are the mascara and the bum bum cream and this valuation take neither into consideration – – or the very popular eye cream)

    • I was thinking the exact same thing. Its funny how they spin the way they choose these products to make the box sound super special. They probably just picked out the products they had the most of in their warehouse and slapped the words limited edition on it so they could give it a hefty price tag. I’m not saying it isn’t worth the price for some people but I’m with you on being bothered by the lying to sell more boxes.

    • I do not see where you are seeing that these products were specially procured. All it says is they were selected from Best of Allure winners. So I am not sure why you feel they are lying. If you don’t want it ,don’t buy it. But don’t be making false accusations about it either.

  24. This was worth it for the scrunchie and the sunscreen alone. I actually wore out the original scrunchie that I received – it was utterly amazing for fine hair.

    • I get that you really like those two items, but $60 or even $40 seems like a lot of money for a scrunchie and a sunscreen. if you like the scrunchie so much, can’t you just google the brand and buy some of them? That’s what I did for the Lue serum I got in one of my subs that I loved so much – I bought 3!

    • Just keep in mind the sunscreen in these boxes are usually expired, or close to expiry. Always filled with old product 🙁

  25. What size is the BumBum? The packaging looks wrong for the 25ml purse size but it’s not listed as a Full Size so I’m not sure.

    Only interested in half of it so the BumBum size is make or break for me

    • Allure website says full size Bumbum.

      • No, it’s not a full size. Go to the link above and see what’s offered and in what sizes.

      • Where did it say full size? I just looked and I did not see that wording on the bumbum… also, the product on top of it is a full size eye cream so… my guess is it’s the size they sent in the monthly box a few months back.

      • Definitely not full size BumBum. I have all the sizes and the full size is HUUUGE

    • It appears to be a 25 ml sample size from the photo. The Banana Bright full size (which is resting on top) is 15 ml, and the Moroccanoil to the left is the tiny 10 ml sample size.

  26. Does anyone know if these ever get discounted?

    • I’ve never seen a LE Allure box be discounted (other than the reduced price for subscribers).

    • I predict they will offer it for $40 to non Allure subscribers within a few weeks when it doesn’t sell out.

  27. I’m weak and I grabbed one 😅 I love that banana bright eye creme and I’ve always wanted to try one of those slip hair ties but they’re so dang expensive.
    I would love to see you guys review it as well!

    • I think I got one of those slip hair ties in a beautyfix box and i really didn’t like it. I thought that it stretched out really quickly and then was too big for my wrist. I am considering getting one of these for the eltaMD and YTTP though…

    • I LOVE the slip hair bands. I got it in the beautyfix box and would never have paid to buy it(too $$$). It doesn’t put a kink in your hair like regular hair bands do when you sleep. It keeps my hair straight and doesn’t look like I had it in a ponytail all night.

    • I agree with Doreen. As much as it breaks my heart to admit this, I was so excited for these because I have long hair that tangles a lot in regular hair ties so I couldn’t wait to try these. Also, they are so chic and I was so happy there was a leopard one! They are AMAZING at first. No tangles, no dents in my hair, loved the look, etc. But after what I feel is a very short time they become stretched out and can’t be fixed. I know all hair ties do this but this one cost too much for it to happen this quickly.

      I still love them though! I don’t know what it is but the minute I saw the spoilers above my first thought was, “Heck yeah I’m about to be able to buy some more hair ties on Mercari!” LOL what is wrong with me? 🙂 There is just something about knowing they are silk…it seems so luxe for a hair tie, you know? Like a tiny glamorous way to treat your self. I have 3 and 2 of them are super stretched out so looks like I need a new one…

      • I hear you! However they do last for quite a while. I don’t know if it is they type of elastic or the silk covering, but I’m planning on unpicking the stitching and trying to replace the elastic inside. I hope it works.
        Meanwhile, I’m getting one of these boxes, as it is totally worth it for me.

      • I agree that the Slip scrunchies are awesome for the first week or so. Then they’re stretched out and become unusable. I have fine hair and they were starting to break it and pull it out. 🙁

      • Just an FYI but DIY silk (or any) scrunchies are SOOOO easy to make if you have a sewing machine or even patience for hand sewing. I get a used silk item at Goodwill, or a small piece at a fabric store, some hair bands and can make dozens in one sitting. They make nice add-on gifts too at the holidays.

    • Weird question, does the banana cream smell like anything? I am interested in this box, but the smell of bananas is offensive to my nostrils.

      • Not weird! I would like to know that too. The smell of bananas makes me 🤢

      • It doesn’t smell like bananas, it’s actually a mild, pleasant scent. But I’ve read reviews on the Sephora website that there’s old stock of these cream in some of the sets, and it smells rancid. You’re better to buy this cream at the store where you can check the batch numbers. It’s insane how many of these subs hand out ancient creams that are doing nothing for your face.

      • It doesn’t smell like anything. It’s amazing! I was using skin medica tns which I love but this is better. The box is cheaper than buying it alone and it has awesome stuff. I’ve been using elta sunscreen for years and I’ll never go back!

    • I’m obsessed with this specific scrunchie now. I got it as an extra in a swap and almost got rid of before i thought, what the hell, let me try it. Then i got it as an extra in another swap (because i’m following when they’re listed) and squealed haha.

      • Hey Tina, the second swap with this extra was from me. I’m glad you like it!
