The HP sea salt spray is tempting because I love sea salt sprays and I love the scent of Hello, but the sample is so tiny!  My Jouer from this month is barely big enough for me to stick my finger in.

 

I think I'm going to end up with the Macadamia hair oil.  It'll be good for my frizzies in the summer.

Well this is adissapointing month. There was so much from the sample choice I wanted last month that it was hard to chose. They made it easy this month. I'm taking a random box. I'm really hoping for a new nail polish and amazing face moisturizer.

Meh. I have gotten the Naobay like three times from different boxes and wasn't impressed in any way by it. Have also already been sent the peel and enough Harvey Prince to last me a lifetime. Hope for some new stuff next month, but nothing for me to get excited about this month unfortunately.

I'm going with a random box. Not excited about any of the choices this month. Also cancelled my 2nd sub for the month. Not interested in any of the upgrades either, at least Birchbox is saving me some money for once lol

Is it just me or do the BB Plus necklaces look cheap and not worth $24? I am seriously disappointed. :wassatt:

 

I think I will again leave it up to chance, this month. The curated box is a snore-fest for me, and I feel indifferent toward the PYS options.

 

And yes, the box this month is another gorgeous one. I'm loving the variety this year! I want to keep them all. :wub: :wub:

I will be leaving it up to chance and I hope there is a good variety of products this month. I'm sure I will end up with sunscreen and body lotion...

This is the first month that I actually am doing a PYS. I'm leaning towards the peel, but I also like the macadamia oil. I despise Harvey Prince, so even though I love sea salt sprays, it definitely isn't in the running! Their scents just smell so cheap to me! I can't wait to find out what blogger they're partnering with!

The video isn't working anymore for some reason.  =(  I'll see if I can fix it, but I'm totally new to this mod thing and honestly have no idea what I'm doing, lol.  Wish me luck!  

 

And oof, gimme both that Harvey Prince and that Macadamia PYS.  That sprayable Macadamia oil, even though it smells awful, makes my hair look so beautiful.  

 

Edit:  omg I fixed it.  Someone give me a gold star! =)

Worst PYS choices so far.  Not even tempted by the curated box either.  Not one make up choice in the whole video - oh except the black mascara - what!?!

 

Super disappointed since May is my b-day month too.  If May wasn't my 13th month w/BB I would most likely cancel, but I've been waiting for that anniversary code.   :(

I really like the peel - but I got 2 last month (2 accounts)

 

The oil looks interesting but the rest doesn't interest me.

 

ACE - oil, 2nd - chance, 3rd - peel (choosing because I don't want identical accounts like last month)

I am thinking about getting the Beauty Solutions box just to ensure I don't get shampoo and conditioner. The Naobay lotion is a different product from last year so unfortunately that one is available for me to receive in my box.

I'm not excited about any of the pys options or the curated box.  I cancelled my two accounts last month - and was waiting for a 100 points code.  But, honestly, I don't think I would sign back up this month even with a code.  I'm just not tempted by any of it.  I'll see what June looks like...

I just cancelled my account, too.  I considered hanging around another month but man are May's options dreadful!  Didn't make the choice hard at all :)

I didn't watch the video until just now, so I didn't realize that the sea spray smelled like Hello.  I only like HP's Yogini, so I'm actually probably going to skip this month too.  I'd rather spent the $10 towards something at Sephora!

ohhh, I didn't know it came scented - I was at work and I had the sound off.   I actually like Hello, as there is no rose or jasmine in it, so I will be okay with this one

That Macadamia oil is actually the full size product. I saw it in Ulta today and it retails for $13.95.

This will definitely be my PYS ;)

    • When you have something that need to step foot out into the street, must you need to review myself to have decent and neat yet. Or maybe you need to makeup the back face, cool his hair a little. In addition to a face skin smooth screen, then hair neatly with the style chignon simple will help you look more outstanding. In these days of cold weather, your hair can be dull, rough or matted due to shampooing, so the bun hairstyle simple will help keep looks cute and more refreshed. If you are a person who love makeup, love beauty, then you should not skip this article! Here are 5 types of beautiful and simple hair that make you look great The Hairstyle On The Top This style of top bun is suitable for girls traveling by car or bus, not wearing a helmet, ensuring you are always neat, but also a little more height for you. This top bun style is a bit different, unlike the regular bun, which is the type of hair that knots, looking very different and youthful. This type of bun is also suitable for girls who have not yet washed their hair, can take advantage of the small strands of hair to make it more luxurious, hiding the scalp that begins to be greasy and itchy. Making: First, tie all your hair into a ponytail above the top of the head. You don't have to tie it too tight, you can loosen up to look natural, and you can release a few loose strands of hair around your forehead. Divide the hair into two equal parts, wrap the first strand around the rest of the hair and use a fixed clip to fix it. Take the rest of your hair, do the same thing, but wrap it in the opposite direction, and then use a peg to fix it. So the hairstyle on the top of your head is completed, it looks very dynamic right? Feminine Hairstyle This is the perfect way to put on a bun to wear a helmet, also neat enough for you to wear the turtleneck sweater and scarf without itching. It can be considered as a basic type of bun, decorated with a braided pigtail to add to the momentum, making your school and work days less boring. This is also a very romantic hairstyle, suitable for you to handle messy hair in dating. Making: Separate a small lock of hair in front of your face so that it will be braided later. The rest grabbed into a ponytail. From this ponytail, twist it into a simple twist and pin it with a toothpick. Use the hair in front of the face to form a strand of ponytail, tied temporarily with small rubber bands. Then, use your fingers to drag the braids to make the pigtail look loose and wider. Wrap it in the bun behind your head, then pin it with a toothpick and you're done. If you have a lot of loose hair, apply a little hairspray. Multi-layered Hair Drawn If you do not know how to create a chignon, you can still apply an extremely simple technique to create a special bun style, ready for parties. How to create multi-layered knots: First, comb your hair very smoothly, then take a part of the hair above the top of the head, divide it into two sections and tie the knot together. Combine some hair underneath each strand, then continue tying the knot together. Keep going until you have all your hair on the knots. Secure the tail with elastic. Afterwards, insert the ends into the hair and pin it with a toothpick to finish. If your hair is longer than the model in the photo, you can continue to tie the long strand of hair down the back of your neck like a ponytail, then twist it into a bun and pin it with a small clip. If desired, fingers can be inserted into the knots to create a thick and fluffy bun. For people with very smooth hair, spray extra hairspray or dry wax to prevent knots from falling out. Curly Hair Chignon This is a very elegant, elegant bun hairstyle, similar to the hairstyles of many famous stars attending the event, but it's actually very easy to do, you don't need sophisticated styling tools, but Just hair ties and toothpicks will suffice. Making: Take a lock of hair above the ears, twist it, and twist it to get more hair into the lock. Do the same thing on the other side of the lock, then tie the entire hair into a low ponytail behind the nape of the neck. Insert your fingers into the middle of the hair above the elastic to create a gap, then thread the entire end of the hair into this space, taking care not to let the ends pass through to reveal under the bun. If your hair is too long, you can place a portion of it on top, then clip it around with a toothpick. So your bun is done. Thanks to the double curls on the ear, your hair will look thicker, more fluffy and more sophisticated. You can drop a few strands of hair hanging down in front for a more feminine. Style Chignon This is a hairstyle suitable for the evening outings, creating a youthful look, a bit rebellious and suitable for dusty costumes. Making: If you do not have time, you can skip steps 1 to 4: These are the steps to tangle the hair on the top of the head to create a feeling of thicker hair, thereby making your face appear smaller. You can directly do it from the 5th step, which is to tie all the hair into a low ponytail, and then divide the hair into 2 parts. For the upper part, let's disassemble, then fold the lower part to cover this messy hair, forming a bulging bun. Use a rubber band to fasten, then divide the extra hair ends of the 2nd part into 2 smaller strands, use these 2 smaller strands to wrap around the elastic band and then pin with a toothpick to complete. If you want more momentum, you can use a curling iron a few curls around the face. hope you can choose for yourself a beautiful bun among the above. ------------------------------ Website: https://beautizon.co/
    • Try BB cream or CC Cream, avoid using foundations,I prefer using bb cream and cc cream as it suit my skin type
    • It is definitely the MICA! I cannot use any mineral products or anything containing Mica which sucks because all the good blushes and colors have Mica but as soon as I use it I break out.  I have no breakouts at all now that I am MICA free.
