Play safe in the sun, for less

[Edit at 12:51 Eastern: Ordering is open, but the site is limping along. Good luck.]

Every year, Allure Magazine does this box of, well, stuff that gets released on a certain day and is only available in limited quantities (I forget how many they do… maybe 2000?) and sells out within hours and I’m describing it badly but honestly, it’s pretty cool. Each box of beauty products is heavily slanted towards suncare items, but in past years I’ve gotten really nice lip gloss and other stuff like that, too.

Anyway, the 2007 Allure Beauty Box is going on sale today, April 24th, at 12:01 p.m. Eastern time. It’s $27.99 shipped and contains $215 worth of products. If you want to get one of these, you need to be online and ready to order pretty much right when the ordering goes live. I’d say you’ve got maybe half an hour or an hour before they run out, so pay attention and be ready to grab one at noon (Eastern!) today. (For what it’s worth, I won’t be ordering this year, but I’ve gotten it before and been pleased.)

  1. Is this working for anyone? I can’t get it to work. 🙁

  2. It’s not working for me either. 🙁

  3. Whenever the page does come up, it says coming soon still.

  4. It isn’t working for me either.

  5. Well, at least it is not just me!

  6. Getting nowhere fast for me too. Glad I’m not the only one — but waiting is HARD….

  7. I suspect their server is getting slammed. Keep checking back if you’re motivated. 😉

  8. The site says EST and we are (mostly) EDT. So maybe in an hour?

  9. Chris, you are so smart, so totally right! I was thinking the same thing, but was not sure.

  10. Well in that case, I can go to the bathroom! Thanks Cris!

  11. It is up now. click the circle to order if ot is loading slow and you can’t read it.

  12. Seems to be sort of working — though stalling in all steps…um, well, ok I’m not past step 1.

  13. Finally got mine. I hope you all are able to get through!

  14. It’s working for me now, but the price is 27.99 plus shipping, so $33.99 total.

  15. Good gracious, but that took forever!

  16. I got to the last step, only to get an ASP error. 🙁 The customer service line, not surprisingly, is busy.

  17. I can’t get in at all- get about 50% loaded and then it freezes. Oh well, it was fun to try.

  18. It took over 2 hours. I hope I like some of the products.

    Thank you!

  19. There goes an hour and half I’ll never get back. Dang.

  20. I finally got through and they are sold out (3pm EST).

  21. The server burped as it was completing my order and apparently it actually made TWO orders. Have had no luck getting thorough (of course) to get one order canceled, so I’m wondering if someone wants to buy the extra one? Maybe we can do some sort of Paypal transaction? Email me at isa (dot) shenanigans (at) gmail (dot) com.
