Allure Beauty Box June 2016 *SPOILERS*

Recommended Posts

Didn't see a June thread, so here ya go! 

 

I'm still really disgruntled with how they handled (they didn't) the overselling of the May box. I bought a second sub for my daughter and never heard a peep if I was getting one so yesterday I finally emailed them.  Obviously I'm not getting it, they should have emailed people.  Get it together Allure, that was handled badly and really unprofessionally.

I'm mad at myself for defending them.  They told me they were sending a bag of samples if I stayed until June.  Finally this week I called to ask when they were sending the bag.  They said that they didn't know and that it was actually just an empty cosmetics bag.  Meanwhile people who subbed the same day I did said they got the May box.  I am predicting june will be just ordinary samples- nothing particularly amazing like the foreo because they don't want another overload.  That's just my guess anyway.

They should recruit Birchbox CS people or the executives who hire/train them. This seems like the only hope for the ridiculous CS department of Allure beauty box. It was Allure's fault to over-sell, but CS definitely made the situation worse by not informing and being rude/giving wrong information to customers when contacted.

I am happy it was such an awesome box in May. I diverted April and Mays box to my Mom from my year sub (I was overloaded on sample product anyway) as extras for her Birthday and Mothers day. She was really impressed with both months. The June box is coming to me and after a two month break from them, I am really looking forward to seeing some Spoilers!

So. I am in the didn't get a May box boat. I discontinued my subscription mid-may through the mobile site when I saw that they over sold and I still didn't have a box. I got no emails except the rub your face in it "look inside your May box" email that has ensured allure never gets another dollar from me. What I want to know is that I will be getting a June box since they did not refund my money and I still have no product. I can't find any beauty box contact info on their mobile site. It is a total mess. I am so bummed I didn't get a May box and the lack of communication is really making me pissy. I don't think I even got an email when I discontinued the sub. They have been around long enough and they are a big enough company that this should not be happening.

There is a second spoiler on MSA Klorane Shampoo with Mango Butter

I got a deluxe sample size of the klorane olive oil shampoo as a gift with purchase from Birchbox recently and it is HUGE- 3.3 oz I think. Curious if this will be as large. And if they are also giving us the conditioner...

. I can't find any beauty box contact info on their mobile site. 

If you log in on the website with your email and zip and it will take you to a page with your account info and  the contact info. It will be at the top of the page. If you want to call them, this is the number:  care_hdr_phone.png If you want to chat online with a CS rep, you will have to log into the site.

Thanks for the info @@Alix26! I'm not really into the Kardashian makeup but I'm interested in trying the bronzer just out of curiosity.

This box is a bust for me so far!  What good is a shampoo without the conditioner.  The Kardashian Make Up, barf! :soap:

Jenny, what do you like to get? I would happily trade something for the mask, and possibly the shampoo.

 

About the 3rd spoiler:

I am not a fan of bronzers because I always think they are too orange on my skin. This month's bronzer pics make it look more tan than orange. I am interested in trying it.

Ha this is turning out to be a great box for me. I love sheet masks, I didn't get to try the shampoo when Birchbox sampled it and I'm all about bronzers, I wear them year round.

 

I'm currently working on a sample sized Nars one from Sephora from like two years ago but I'll eventually get around to trying this one, provided it's not too shimmery.

I was curious about when/if I was going to receive the complimentary box that they said I would get for the whole May fiasco. I did a live chat and the representative said that it was still being processed even though it should have shipped on May 2 and would be comprised of random items from past months. Well, a business day or two after that live chat I got an email saying they ran out of those items but she apparently didn't know this at the time of the chat. To make up for not getting a May box, then not getting the "oops we screwed up" box, they've subscribed me to the Allure magazine for a year.

 

I really wish they would get their stuff squared away. I understand this kind of thing happens, but no one has received any sort of acknowledgment through their email. I shouldn't have to contact customer service to find out what product I'm receiving and when, considering I already paid for it. And then only have issues remedied once I bring them up.

So far I am not in love with this month's box.  Kardashian cosmetics are not appealing, the shampoo has sulfates, which strip my hair color, and the mask sounds a little interesting, but not thrilling.

Full spoilers:

 

I mean, I'm happy for a full-sized moisturiser (although Purlisse doesn't particularly impress me) and I'm okay with the sheet mask (they could have done a 3-pack though) but everything is just so MEH.

 

Completely unimpressed. And to top it off, I doubt I'll get the pretty blue Julep colour pictured.

Thanks for posting full spoilers. I will only use a couple items from the box. I hope I don"t get the color Katie for the polish as I already own it.

I will like the mask, and will try the bronzer.  The nail polish colors are too "loud" for me. The moisturizer with sunscreen, well I already have more than I can ever use, so not too excited.

    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.   
    • Something amazing for No Buy - Project Pan - Project Use It Up followers - I was reading the comments section of a Hannah Louise Poston video (Lots of Empties, published 1/21/2020) and I heard about a beauty shop called Credo that has a special recycling bin for cosmetics. Apparently if you bring your empties in for them to recycle, they give you rewards points for new things. And you can bring in any empties, not just things from their shop, although they don't take nail polish, nail polish remover, or perfume. Wow, I love that. What an inspiration for us to stay with our projects. There is no Credo store near me though. They are only in the major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., but maybe they will expand. Maybe they will find a way to let us mail in our empties? Or maybe I will take a trip someday, if I am good on my No Buy for a long time ... I could get my eyebrows done at their store too. Who knows. They do have an online shop also and they give three samples with orders. They have beautiful things. I think I will sign up with their site and start saving my empties up (instead of putting them in my neighborhood recycling); this may a coming trend! It's inspiring.  I always read the comments sections of No Buy videos on YouTube. I always find great tips and inspiration.
    • Hi, lottie. How would you be able to dry brushes that fast? Mine take a day to dry
