The Allure Holiday Beauty Box goes on-sale on Friday, November 23 at 12:01PM EDT. 

 

 

I missed out on the earlier ones... So I have been stalking the site for updates.LOL

Just have to be able to move from my food coma after Thankgiving dinner and order myself a box. I live in Cali so it will be 11/22 9:01PM for me.

OMG! I've been thinking about getting one of these... Now to decide what I'd actually use/if it's worth the price to me. Always a great value but would I use it? Hm!

While I do like the looks of some of those items, most are not items I can use or am interested in so it would save me money just to buy the ones I want. These are always tempting though because you get so much.

The last two Allure Beauty Boxes sold out in a few hours.  So, if you want it, be sure to order right away.

 

Also, shipping has been about $10.00, and in my state we pay sales tax, so the $29.99 becomes more like $44.00 ish.

I gave it a look, and I know I wouldn't use most of the products and others well I just don't really need them , I won't say it wasn't tempting, but for me personally it's just not worth it.

Not enough stuff I want for that much money- especially since it does not include shippingdoh.gif

When I think of it this way it really puts it into perspective for me.

Isn't 12:01pm just after noon so it would be 9:01 AM?

I think it used to be once per year, but recently it has been more often.  They had a summer one and a fall one - both of those were $39.99 for 24 and 21 products respectively.  I missed the summer box because I didn't realize it would sell out in a couple hours.  I really liked the contents of the fall box, plus it came with a $15 off coupon for shoes from Zappos.

 

The postage may be less this time because there are only 16 products.  And, it is only $29.99.  I might get it.

post #14 of 62

I got the fall one, and am still working through all the hair products...certainly don't need any more. Will skip this one....too many other Blk Friday sales to jump on for ~$40ish!

post #15 of 62

It looks like a really great deal.

Unfortunately I have about a lifetime and a halfs worth of samples and random products to use thanks to me going nutso on subscription boxes last year. So I will be skipping this one, but I think it would be really cool to get it.

I'll live vicariously through you all!

I already set an alarm for this and seems like I have to agree with you.

With all of the fantastic subs I had as well from the previous months (and purchases from flash sales) I guess, the $40 could be bought for something else.

I have 3 drawers full of untouched samples and I have to start using them by next month. I even have the Beautyfix and Allure Summer's Edition in which I only used 2-3 items so far, CEW box and impulse bought stuff, I guess these would suffice my vanity needs for a while. Yeeeeah!rocknroll2.gif

I'll be stalking the site to get it. I have to do it off of my phone, so I already warned the fiancee not to call between the fifteen minutes before it goes live and the fifteen minutes after. I'm taking this very seriously:)

post #18 of 62

I don't understand, why are they giving out a Brunette product and a Blonde product? I feel like they should stay away from things like that since not everyone can use them

generally speaking of its marketed for "blonde" just means its safe for color treated hair regardless of the color.

 

the only products to watch for are ones that contain any bleach, if they don't you are safe to use for any color. 

 

 

(this is not true for the "red" products, they deposit dye, and can lead to horrible incidents if you ever lighten you hair, it will be pink)

It's hard to resist, but I've been forcing myself to. I unsubbed from most of my boxes and have been making myself use up samples, which has been pretty eye opening. Most of the products I have samples of, I'm glad I only have the sample size to get through because I don't like it as much as my regular stuff i use. lol

post #22 of 62
Thank you for the heads up. I wasn't aware, and I want to be sure to purchase. I wonder if they'll have any codes where you can get a third box for free or anything.

I'm in the same position as you! With tax and shipping added on, it becomes a little less of a great deal, just enough to make me want to not buy it. Plus, my drawers and cabinets are overflowing with product, and I really shouldn't waste those.

     I know.. I took my chances since I was out shopping yesterday.  I decided if it was still available at whatever time I returned home, I'd purchase it

then.  So....I purchased it last night at about 6pm. biggrin.gif

post #27 of 62

Well it must not have been that popular because they still have them up on the site!

post #28 of 62

i got it since its products i know i will use and much cheaper then my drugstore

post #29 of 62

Me too Nikki! CaliMel, they may have just stocked up a lot more, given the history of their boxes.  It would be silly to not try and meet demand.

I resisted, because I am still working my way through my last 2 Allure boxes! And that's even after giving away all the blonde stuff to my sister.
