No matter how I change my profile and how many times I refresh, I keep getting these items:

 

 

1000

 

I want the Whip Hand Cosmetics pigment, but that's it... so far.

Just a heads up! I did the mystery sample this month and it ended up being one of the Every Drop Beauty Spatulas. I was very happy to see it since I've been tempted to buy one for a while now.

I've skipped the past two months or so and chose everything I had been eyeing... The lavender soap Whipped cosmetics in the gold/bronze The cheek tint Dry shampoo Cotz Amlactin

Dang, I already have almost all of that stuff. I hope they release some new samples before Friday.  It seems like they have been releasing less and less new stuff the last few months.

 

I really liked the dry shampoo, it smells awesome.  But I tried the skin polisher last night and it didn't seem like it did anything.

I'm really unimpressed with Beauty Army. I've gotten one month and I don't want to keep seeing my sample rejects pop up as my only options. I wish I could get more than one pigment to pop up. Those are the only things I'm interested in. Oh well.

I may or may not have tried to do that.  I think I'm going to just sort of hope I can get the rest of the pigments via trade.  Does anyone happen to know how long you can keep them before they go bad?  It doesn't say anything on the bottle.

My window opens on the 4th. I'm planning on skipping. Mostly because I am overloaded with samples right now, but also because there really isn't anything new I want. I wish they had an option to block items from your selection window because it is really a pain to keep refreshing and to still see the same unwanted stuff over and over, month after month.

This was a skip month for me :(

It was basically a selection window with all the products I have been able to avoid up until this point.  The only product I wanted was the dry shampoo, but I have alot of dry shampoos right now, and the idea of having to select products I didn't want really rubbed me the wrong way.  Hopefully they will change up the selection for May!

I didn't even both trying to play with my profile to change my samples.  I was offered the mark mascara in brown (I already have it in black), one of the loose eyeshadows (already have a green and two golden browns, don't need a third), dry shampoo (never works with my hair), and foil packets.

 

I'm guessing I will have to wait a few months for the inventory to completely turn over to place another order.

I loved the skin polisher!! I massage it into my face for at least 30 seconds, and I can feel crud and dead skin just rubbing right off. I usually rinse and then buff with a wash cloth to get any residual yuck off, and afterwards my face feels so smooth and nice. :)

I think the first time I didnt use enough and then I tried it again and I think I used too much.  I feel like Goldilocks lol.  I still couldn't really tell that anything was happening, it just felt like I was rubbing goo on my face and then it dried/absorbed into my skin.  I cant imagine not rinsing after.  Maybe mine is a dud because there were no clear beads like the info said.

No matter how I change my profile or how many times I refresh, the only thing I want that pops up is the Whip Hand Cosmetics Special Forces pigment.  I don't want to pay $12 for it.  Meh.

I about got the same! Pretty good items I think. Since it is my birthday month I went ahead and ordered the mascara, eyeshadow, dry shampoo, skin polisher, amlactin,, and the sunscreen

I just skipped this month, which is only my third month with them. Nothing I saw in there that I really wanted or hadn't seen before, so we'll see what they come up with next month. I got the cheek tint last month and really love it, so hopefully they'll come up with at least one other winner like that.

 

And am I the only one who suddenly can't pick more than like six category items at the end of the profile quiz?

I watch the threads to see what items are out there. When its my time to order, I do try a few categories but then I select based off of what I want to see pop up. So i chose body for the lavender soap (and am lactin because nothing else sounded good), makeup for the cheek tint and eye shadow, hair for the dry shampoo and face something for the Cotz. I always select eye area too cause I am always in hope that an eye product will show up lol

My window doesn't open until Sunday, but unless they release some new things before then (which they might, last month the NY Streets and the GCB polisher showed up around the time my window opened), there isn't really anything that I want that I haven't already gotten. About the only thing I would want is the Whip Hand Special Forces, it's the  only one I don't have, but I don't want to get a box just to get that. The Mark mascara will probably show up for me since I haven't gotten it yet, but that's because I remember using it in high school and not liking it. Unless the formula has changed since then (which in 10 years it might have, haha), I'll be passing on that. BUT, for anyone who does like the Scanda-lash, mark just recently started selling a full size of it (it's always only been available in the hook-up size). I think it's $11.

I have found that I have way more luck getting better boxes if I wait a couple months or so between boxes. I got my first in October, and there was enough stuff that I wanted since I had just joined that I got another in November. But then I didn't get another box until March, when enough new stuff had been added and I could get stuff that I really want instead of a couple things I want and a bunch of "fillers."

I skipped April.  I couldn't justify spending $12 for one product I wanted, especially when the full-sized one is only $2 more.  Hopefully, someone will put Special Forces on their trade list.  I adore Medal of Honor and would love to try Special Forces too, since they look similar.  Unfortunately, it seems like I will have collected the entire Camo Collection once I receive Special Forces.  bowl2.gif

Maybe the good people over at BA need to check this thread out! It's a bummer when so many people are skipping months because there isn't enough stuff they want. AND, the whole point is to get what you want, not to get a couple boxes in row and then have to skip because all that's left is the stuff you DON'T want. BOO. It would be cool if they not only released new samples more often, but if they figured out a way to let us decline a sample of something we would never want, that way it wouldn't show up anymore. That would be amazing....

Or why not just show us all the samples that are available instead of having to tweak our profiles and refresh like crazy? When I refresh only one or two items change anyway. It can be frustrating to sit through all the samples I don't want to get the few that I do want and makes me just want to skip.

I agree.  I would love an all hair or all exfoliator box, but even if that's the only box I check I still cant get multiple items from that category.  Sometimes I can get 2 things, but I know they have 3-4 of them in their inventory.

    • Have you heard about the Beauty DNA test?  Isn't anything new to you? I discovered one of the beauty articles talking about Beauty DNA test. It said a  test could customise a skincare routine based on our Genetic ( sounds personal in my opinion )   I did   order a kit online.  ( many companies offer the test) ,and my package is on its way.   I will give you guys an update soon about how I do the test and what results I  get. Anyway, If some of you have tried the test yourself, please share with me. Thank You        
    • Hi. I really like to watch how the model girls are preparing for casting and how everything is arranged from the inside. Now I am also studying in more detail all the main points and you can also look at our website. Here are interesting details from the life of super models from the African continent.
    • It's too bad the serum didn't work out as well as you expected. Have you tried diluting it in your toner or moisturizer?
    • this 5 product most sell on amazon  LilyAna Naturals Retinol Cream Moisturizer. COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch. Differin Gel.  Thayers Witch Hazel Toner Areno Daily Moisturizing Lotion.
    • I saw this DIY mascara on Pinterest and it made me wonder how many people actually DIY their makeup. Lip scrub, I've tried before and it was fine. How about you?
