If you missed my prior box review take a peek here at my review!

Allure changed the Box Name from Beauty Box to Beauty Thrill Box, but everything else is pretty much the same with the exception of a pre-buy option for Allure Enthusiasts. I just had to get that pre-sale action and signed up for the year of boxes for one flat fee… yup, no more cyber stalking their site only to get disappointed for me!
 As you can see from the pic above, this is why they sell out so quickly! For a little more than $50 you can get tons of great products in one box every quarter! I chose the pre-sale option, so I could purchase all 3 Allure Beauty Thrills Boxes ($750 approx. value) for $199.95 total. The shipment came quick and ordering was the easiest ever! If you missed the pre-sale or option to purchase this one time box, follow my blog to find out how to get the next available Box! Each box comes with a catalog/booklet of the items included and a description of each product. For this review I decided to break down the contents based on product type, such as Hair, makeup, skin…etc. Makes it easier for you to judge the value based on your own individual preferences! For example, I love facial products so if I received my value in that alone then I will consider this an amazing box! Everyone is different and have different needs, so why take my advise look for yourself!
 The mini magazine is not as thorough as their monthly beauty box, but with all these products who could blame them? Face Products Value of $233:  6 Products Total (from left to right):

ALGENIST Power Advanced Wrinkle Fighter Serum $105
E.L.F. Studio Lip Exfoliator $3
MICHAEL TODD Knu Anti-Aging Face Lift Serum  $85
SIMPLE SKINCARE Micellar Make-Up Remover Wipes $6
TOUCH IN SOL Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base $24
YES TO TOMATOES Detoxifying Charcoal Cleanser  $10

Here is where the money is so worth the box! I go through face cream and cleanser like water, so the investment here was what I was after! First, the Algenist power advanced wrinkle fighter has a retail value of $105….AMAZING!!!! I was so amazed by the value of just this bottle of wrinkle fighters that the rest of the contents were just icing on the cake. This potent shot has rave reviews and so far I’m on day two with no complaints.

The Michael Todd Face Lift Serum is another shocker at a $150 retail value!!!! Should I go on?  The Michael Todd Face Lift Serum is fantastic! It really does tighten and with only a slight tightening sensation. The downside, I would recommend wearing this under your usual BB Cream because it makes you look like you put your face in a bucket of chicken when it dries (super shiny)!

I always use face wipes so the wipes came at a perfect time where I was low! The lip exfoiliater….well, I have only ever received one other lip exfoiliater and that was in my Memebox a while back and I loved it! I was surprised how well it worked in the lipstick tube since the solid form helped when rubbing it on the lips so it wasn’t flimsy.

The Touch In Sol Honey Base worked pretty well but seemed to come off under my Tarte foundation if applied to rough. It has tiny gold flakes which really do help with adding a bit of glow to your daily look!

The only other product I have tried was the Touch In Sol skin base which is kind of a primer and moisturizing gel in one. The only thing I was not a fan of was the big pieces of glitter floating in it, but after application of my makeup they were barely visible. I am quite happy with this season’s box!
 Hair Care Value $87.50: 10 Products Total:
ALOXXI Volumizing Whip  $13
CLEAR SCALP & HAIR Total Care Nourishing Shampoo $5
CLEAR SCALP & HAIR Total Care Nourishing Conditioner $5
HASK Monoi Coconut Nourishing Shine Oil  $3
HERBAL ESSENCES Naked Volume Shampoo$5
NOT YOUR MOTHER’S Clean Freak Unscented Refreshing Dry Shampoo $8
ONE ‘N ONLY ISLAND ESSENTIALS Awapuhi Intensive Treatment $10.50
REDKEN One United Multi-Benefit Treatment $12
RUSK Working Spray $20
SUAVE PROFESSIONALS Moroccan Infusion Styling Oil  $6

I was impressed that a variety of hair care was included, from Shampoo & Conditioner to a high end working spray. It allows me to try several products I normally would never try or allows someone in my household to use them…. virtually no waste here! The Aloxi volumizing whip was a new product for me and the Redken One United treatment, but there were several brands that seem to repeat in from season to season. Last box I received many of the same brands but I do admit that they were all different products from those same brands! Body Products & Grooming Products Value of $26: Total of 5 Products
CARESS Daily Silk Silkening Body Wash $4
COLGATE Optic White Toothbrush + Built-In Whitening Pen $8
COLGATE Optic White Express White Toothpaste $4
DOVE Advanced Care Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant $5
DOVE Deep Moisture Body Wash  $5
All of these items are great and will be used! The only deodorant I use is Dove brand! The Dove Brand has me for life, since there is never any irritation and they have anti-aging properties! I am an advocate for whitening products, so I will surely use the optic pen and whitening toothpaste after I go through my Crest 3D white. FYI: These two were repeat products from last box. The body wash is another plus because there is always a need for body wash in my house!
Make-up/Beauty Products Value of $20: Total of 3 products
E.L.F. Studio Moisturizing Lipstick in Bordeaux Beauty $3
JESSICA Custom Nail Colour $6
SONIA KASHUK TOOLS Medium Eye Shadow Brush No.28 $11

Some subscribers will be disappointed to find that Beauty Products seldom take over these kind of bulk boxes, but we do see a lot of New (not repeat) products. The best find was the SONIA KASHUK TOOLS Medium Eye Shadow Brush No.28 which has soft yet sturdy bristles that glide effortlessly for both blending and layering!

I received a little over $366.50 in products for around $66 (pre-sale price and guarantee), which if you were one of the lucky ones to get one could have been as low as $59.95 for the box.  I will end up using everything and just with the two anti-aging products I got my money back twice fold! I consider this a tremendous win for me! The box is sold out, so stay tuned or sign up for my blog to find out when they will have their next Box available!
