Each month’s box contents will vary, but the company states that they will all contain at least five products and occasionally six or seven. Each product will be unique, though some boxes can have different variations of a similar item. For instance, the November 2018 box include a Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment Mask, Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask, and a Lapcos Metallic Sheet Mask in Pearl.
Talked to Allure 3 times and got 3 somewhat different stories. I did get a shipping email but that is only Allure letting USPS that they should be on the lookout for the package. USPS is still waiting on my box. At this point, I am going to be asking for a refund for this month. I love the box but after over 2 years of of being a loyal customer, I feel they could be and should be doing better in customer service and well, everything! Email customer service?! Lol! Lol! Lol! Nope! I think I’ve only ever gotten 1 response in 2 years and not one email returned this month. Their phone CS and email CS are not integrated, 2 separate things going on there. Eh? That does not make any sense in this day and age. Even their website is beyond outdated. There’s not much info for subscribers and their accounts. The whole variation thing too. I don’t even want those tiny worthless beauty blenders. I told CS that it seems they’ve taken care of the newer customers and left the loyals hanging. “Pretty much…..” I actually told them that if I get those beauty blenders, I’m putting them back in the box and putting ‘return to sender ‘ on it. She said not to do that because it would cost regular rates for them. Well, then maybe then the ‘editor ‘ will get the message. The original content spoilers released by Allure are what I expect. 😳 I love the products and sizes I get from this sub so please don’t tell me I should cancel. No, Allure needs to get it together.
I subscribed to the Beauty Box and got charged for it right away, however, it took about 3 weeks to get the actual box, in the meantime they had already charged me for the next month's box, which confused me so I emailed them to ask why the extra charge and got no response, emailed again and again no response, so I finally called them to which they told me that it was the following month's charge. How can they charge you for the next month and still not send the previous month's box? By the way, as I am writing this, I still haven't received the next box, they charged me for it on 1/7 and today is 1/28, and I was told that i was going to have to wait another 7-10 days for me to receive it, something about a product missing, so almost a month after I paid for it, still haven't got it. So after reading a lot of bad reviews about customer service and how it was difficult to cancel your membership, I decided to just that, I had to call them again because they make it very difficult for you to cancel, you can't just do it from your account online like all other boxes, you have to call them and wait on the phone for a long time and when you tell them you want to cancel, they offer you 4 boxes at 12 dollars per box. That was kind of weird to me, but even at $12 it's not worth the headache. Going back to Boxycharm, that is one of the best boxes out there.
So I received the same email early this morning about the title line being a refund and bonus box, but then when I open the body of the email it says that there was a shipping delay and my January box would be shipping next week. I will be a little upset if I don’t receive the Sunday Riley products and a bunch of random crap in a box since I signed up in December and my payment posted on 01/04 for January. I am also expecting a box from Amazon, it says that one has shipped, has anyone received their box from Amazon yet? and If so did it have the SR products in it?
Use gentle strokes on the eye area. I like to use light pressure and plenty of serum/cream. Use light, shimmering tapping (imagine doing jazz fingers). Be sure to press the serum into the skin instead of just pushing it around. Finish up by drawing a horizontal figure 8 (or the infinity symbol!) around the boundaries of your eye area–this is good for lymphatic drainage.
Hyaluronic acid, a humectant that holds up to 1000 times its weight in water, can "plump" wrinkled skin, giving it the appearance of diminished wrinkles. A top anti-wrinkle eye cream, Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Intensive Eye Contour Cream contains Super Bio Hyaluronic Acid N for intense moisture; it also has burnet extract to revitalize cells and counteract loss of firmness.
This vegan formula combines vitamin C (Dr. Idriss's go-to antioxidant for fighting under-eye swelling) with ultra-soothing aloe vera and a blend of hydrating components (like hyaluronic acid and sunflower oil) to coddle the delicate skin under your eyes. Plus, unlike thick creams that feel heavy or oily, this lightweight formula absorbs into your skin with ease.
Unlike some anti-aging creams that only intended for people with certain skin types (moisture-rich for dry skin, quick-absorbing for oily skin), Cindy Crawford’s Meaningful Beauty Beyond collagen cream was manufactured for folks of every skin type! Whether you have super oily skin that is prone to breakouts, dry skin that tends to flake when you skip a day or two of moisturizing, or combination skin that falls somewhere in between, this nighttime repairing cream is for you!
This wrinkle cream is all-natural with no fillers, parabens, or harmful fragrances or dyes. The Aloe, green tea, shea butter, and jojoba oil will act to protect your skin and soften the fine lines while the hyaluronic acid will provide long-lasing hydration. The retinol will stimulate collagen production and make your skin tighter over time. And if it doesn’t – there’s always the money-back guarantee!
“While there are many expensive skin care treatments on the market, nothing is better at preventing both skin cancer and premature skin aging than sunscreen. Studies have shown time and time again that regular use of sunscreens prevents the development of skin cancers, including melanomas, which can be potentially fatal. In one recent yearlong study, regular sunscreen use was even shown to improve the cosmetic appearance of the skin, likely because protective skin was able to heal itself. The best treatment for aging skin is preventing ultraviolet light damage to begin with. Skipping one day will not result in too much loss, but if you regularly take a pass, your skin will ultimately pay the price.

Under-eye masks or patches directly target your bags with hydrating ingredients, antioxidants and retinol. This pampering treatment reduces inflammation and stimulates collagen growth for refreshed and youthful-looking eyes. It’s also an excellent way to relax after a long day! Follow the instructions on the pack but as a general rule aim for 20 minutes with patches on. After removing you should see immediate results.

Celluvexin is one of the top cellulite cream, delivering some of the best ingredients at a low price. Celluvexin ranks so highly because of its cellulite-fighting ingredients that have been shown individually in clinical tests to show significant results. Featuring compounds like CELU-SLIM, which breaks down fatty tissue causing cellulite, it also has natural ingredients such as kelp, green tea, and amino acids that help smooth and strengthen the skin for a firm, clear appearance.

Peptides are amino acids that work as chemical messengers in the body. When it comes to skin care, chains of peptides in anti-wrinkle eye creams stimulate collagen production; this, in turn, decreases the appearance of lines and wrinkles. In this category, Perricone MD Neuropeptide Eye Contour is a powerful anti-aging eye cream for severe loss of elasticity and tone and contains a proprietary blend of neuropeptides.
The number helps you work out how long you will be protected for. Consider how long it normally takes you to burn without sunscreen on – calculate this in minutes. Multiple this number by the SPF number on your chosen sunscreen to get the length of time in minutes that you are protected for. More on this later, but the idea is that SPF 15, for example, protects you from damage for 15 times longer than going unprotected.
Also known as periorbital hyperpigmentation, periorbital melanosis and dark circles, under-eye bags may appear as the lower eyelid’s bluish discoloration (vascular type) or brownish to black hyperpigmentation (constitutional type).3 The eyelid skin is the thinnest of all body parts, particularly the lower medial eyelid, which has the lowest dermal to epidermal ratio.4 This is where fat accumulates through time, resulting in the development of bags under the eyes.5
I liked the products that I received but the service quality has me pretty angry. I told them to cancel my subscription as I only wanted to try one box. They told me to contact them again after I received an order confirmation. Got the confirmation, sent them another cancellation request, and didn’t hear back. A week later Paypal notifies me that Allure charged me another month. No matter how nice the samples are, I hate getting money stolen and poor customer service. Will not use again - Sincerely, a very pissed customer 🙃
"It made a huge improvement in my skin. I loved this product and would tell anyone to try it," raved one tester of the champion, Lancôme Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector. Lab tests proved that it excelled: It was the only serum to firm skin and was number one at smoothing skin texture. Plus, it took a noteworthy second place for decreasing brown spots and minimizing the look of pores. Testers, who rated it best for firming skin, also liked its "silky" feel — however, a few said it temporarily made their skin redder.
Vitamin B3, also known as niacinamide, is a skincare essential that’s often forgotten. It can be used to brighten your complexion, reduce inflammation, and keep water from leaving your skin’s protective barrier. Niacinamide helps decrease inflammation of the skin and lower overall redness of the skin, says Dr. Tzu. Research suggests it may also help aid in fading fine lines and wrinkles, amp up your skin’s luminosity, and get rid of dry patches and blotchy areas. Niacinamide has also been found to help prevent and clear up acne, whether it’s hormonal or cystic, research suggests.
This box looks amazing! They gave us that full sized Sunday Riley CEO cream last January and now this January we get a full brand new Dave oil from Sunday Riley! That alone makes the box for me. Along with the other SR product and eyeshadow stick, this is a home run all the way around. They’re definitely starting off the year absolutely killing it and beating out all the other sub boxes with this curation!
I got my CEO Serum last Friday. I was happy, considering that I never thought I was going to get it. I signed up for two boxes, at least through this month, because everything I’ve ever tried from Sunday Riley has worked great for my skin. I got an email this morning that confused me though – it was an update on my January box. In the preview of the gmail, it said that allure was sorry for the delay, processing a refund, and sending me a free box” but when I open the email, it says “your box should ship out next week”. Sooo which is which? I really don’t wanna get suckered out of the SR.
LOL I also don’t understand the outrage over a weeks delay of shipping your box. It’s kinda ridiculous. Throwing around the fact that you have been with Allure a year like you are more entitled is also ridiculous. I could in return say well wait just one minute here, I’ve been with them for 3 years and I’m more entitled than someone who’s been here a year. It’s dumb.
“I have dry skin, but I also tend to break out if I layer on a night cream that's too rich. This product provides the perfect solution — I simply take a quarter size of my night cream, add a few drops of this serum, and smooth it onto my face, neck and cheeks. Whatever’s left goes on my hands. It basically supercharges my moisturizer, giving me more hydrated skin without clogging my pores. I tell people using these two products together freezes my skin in time,” says Dr. Whitney Bowe, M.D., a New York-based dermatologist.
Strategic decisions were made to grow the business even further across all teams, including business and editorial, and included bringing on a former employee from Birchbox, a subscription box for makeup, hair care and skincare. Furthermore, putting together the box is a newsroom-wide and collaborative effort and is something editors across editorial operations works on.
Never start microneedling without slathering on some kind of primer first: Not only does that medium make the treatment feel less harsh on your skin, but also, when you use a great treatment, you’re literally pushing those ingredients deep into your skin for maximum absorption—up to 90% more than you would just by using your fingers and leaving it there. I typically use a serum with additional collagen-boosting ingredients like hyaluronic acid. (Just be sure to avoid super-reactive elements like retinol or vitamin C.)
Bags under eyes can include mild swelling, saggy or loose skin and/or dark circles. While you may not like the way these bags look, they are usually harmless and do not require medical attention; however, if you experience severe and persistent bags accompanied by redness, itching or pain, you may want to see your doctor. Also, if you notice redness, itching or pain on other parts of your body, such as your legs, you could be having an allergic reaction and need medical attention. Your doctor will want to rule out other possible causes that can contribute to the swelling, such as thyroid disease or an infection.
Alas, under-eye bags are not a feature that improves with age. Now, many people get dark circles when they have a bad night’s sleep–occasionally, but not severely. I’ve had a combination of under-eye bags *and* dark circles since college. If you’re wondering what that even looks like, imagine curtain valances (the half-moon drapes that top your curtains). Thank you, Dad.
Due to the lack of statistically significant clinical trials proving the effectiveness of topical retinoids as “anti-wrinkle” creams, I recommend applying sunscreen daily to reverse signs of photo-aging and to prevent fine lines and wrinkles. I would avoid using “anti-wrinkle” creams until more definitive scientific evidence proves that the benefits outweigh the risks. In the meantime, think of all the thousands of dollars you will save on not having to buy anti-wrinkle creams.
This would be a great wrinkle cream for anyone who has problems with age spots or is susceptible to sun damage. This serum protects against it while also inhibiting melanin production which will keep skin vibrant and porcelain-like. And the long-lasting deep penetrating hydration from the hyaluronic acid will also help to smooth lines and wrinkles.
I received the peel off mask in my box and it nearly took off my skin. It was like peeling a giant band aid off of my face. I could have used the Ren after that experience. Straight in the trash with that one. I wish Alkure would offer a “skip a month” option… I could have lived without the Decenver box. I want the January for Sunday Riley. And I am so-so on February. They did promise extra sample sizes in boxes from January, so I will hang in for another month
