Currently, I subscribe to two beauty boxes per month; Sephora Play! ($10) and Boxycharm’s base box ($25).
I think of beauty boxes like gambling – My limit is $35 per month. I fully understand I could get some really good products and some really crappy ones. Fortunately, my coworkers, friends, and family members enjoy the items I pass along. I love sharing so it’s a win-win.
It’s a good thing March’s Allure Beauty Box was so good because the April spoilers look really, really bad. A self tanner wipe and really specific drug store hair products instead of the ABH lipstick? Blerg.
Anyway, here’s my review of March’s products after testing most of them for a few weeks. I gave a couple of products away but am enjoying the rest. definitely worth the $15 I pay for the box via my Amazon subscription.
As a subscription box drama follower, I’ve noticed a couple of things about the Allure box:
- People feel it provides an excellent value for $15 per month.
- People complain about the customer service and billing issues.
When I learned that I could subscribe and cancel easily through Amazon, I signed up. Currently, Allure offers the first box for $10 and ships a welcome gift later.
There does seem to be slight variations in products subscribing through Allure vs. Amazon but my priority is never dealing with billing or cancellation issues so I can deal with that.
With the click of a button, I subscribed via Amazon and my February box arrived about one week later.
Next month’s spoilers are released each month – if you don’t like what you see, unsubscribe via Amazon and resubscribe later.
Here are my thoughts after testing each product in the February box:
