A couple of times a year, Allure offers a limited number of “beauty boxes” filled to the brim with expensive products at a deep discount. On the minus side, you may get some stuff you’re really not interested in having. But on the plus side, the products are full-sized and the box tends to be a tremendous value even if you won’t use it all. Plus: A portion of the proceeds are donated to a good cause.
Today (April 22nd, 2009) is Beauty Box day! Just go to Allure’s Beauty Box page to check out this year’s included products ($150 of products for $39.99), and beginning at noon Eastern time they’ll be open for orders. These do tend to go quickly, so plan to be there between noon and one if you’d like to order one.
$5 from every box sold goes directly to the Skin Cancer Foundation. What a lovely excuse to treat yourself to some fancy products!
No hat this year. 🙁 An awesome deal if you’ll use the products.
Got one this year! Thanks!
I just got this year’s, I bought last year’s and I was really happy with it, They have stuff you don’t normally buy and I liked them so much I still purchase now.
Just ordered mine! I figured just with the stuff I’ll definitely use it’s worth over $40 to me, so yippee! Be sure to tell us next time you hear of the Allure Box!
Thanks, Mir! I missed out last year, but scored one now!
Yes, thank you for the heads up! I missed out last year, but I did manage to get one this time around.
I ordered mine as well as half the women in my office! I guess we’ll all be blond this summer! Thanks for the reminder.
Yay, I got one too!
Argh — the site must be overwhelmed…(((sob)))
I was able to get one this year! Thanks for the heads up or I would have missed out again! 🙂
I just ordered one! I thought i would be too late! Woohoo!
Yay! I got one. They must be moving slow this year, as it’s been almost 3 hours, and they’re still available.
It’s 4:20 ET and they are still available – what a surprise!
It’s now 6:00 pm EST and I just got one. Woohoo. They must have made more than last year…they sold out so fast last spring.
Its 11:06 EST and I just ordered mine!
Um, it’s 11:28am EDT on Thursday and I still managed to grab one! Maybe they finally figured out just how many of these they could sell 🙂
Unbelievable–I just ordered one 5 days later. Just *after* I had renewed my Allure subscription, unfortunately, but I’m glad they still had the boxes available!
Hmm, did anyone receive their box yet?
