I got the curated box on my Ace account (to avoid getting a perfume) and the Macadamia hair product on my second account.  My second account got a perfume (and the Beaver crap) last month so hopefully no perfume this month.

June they are offering a special curated Beaver Box. It comes with shampoo, conditioner, perfume and an adorable beaver bath bomb. If you try to google this make sure safe search is on.  Sorry. Got to entertain myself somehow while I wait for box combinations to load.

Bummer choices this month! I've recently been trying out the few salt sprays I've received from birchbox so I went with the HP spray. Not to excited.... But hopefully that means no shampoo? Ha ha ha! Probably means a box full of hair products!

I will let Birchbox surprise me this month -mainly because I forgot about the sample choice email until it had expired. I wasn't feeling the choices this month (samples for products that I don't use or am allergic to). The only thing that I would have tried would have been the Juara Candlenut body cream and I'll get that some other time.

How did you manage that? I think I've had everything they offer and will probably get this spray.  lol

I didn't think I was going to pick a sample, but I ended up going with the Macadamia. I haven't tried it yet and it's a decent sized sample, so why not. My other account I left up to chance, though. I'm hoping to get a porefessional sample because I haven't tried that yet. :hehe:

Consider yourself lucky! They all smell way too floraly, like old lady floral, and they had a chemically smell mixed with it. Needless to say they are pretty terrible scents. The only usable harvey prince product I got was a hand cream because it is lightly scented and perfect for travel, but I didn't get that in a box I got it in a pick 2.

I re-subbed to have a 2nd account this month, so I picked the HP Spray on one (I don't use beachy sprays a ton, but I LOVE the Hello scent) and the Macadamia Oil on the other. I almost left the 2nd one a surprise but I figured choosing different samples on each would make it less likely to get dupe boxes.

I picked the peel for my PYS on one account. Ive gotten it before and LOVED it. Second acct is up to chance. April was a dud for me so I'm really hoping May is a winner on both accounts! But with my luck I'll still end up with dupe boxes

This is a solid month for me: 

 

Benefit Porefessional (I've used this before, but it is handy to have a small one)

Real Chemistry peel (my PYS)

Marcelle Hydra-C Gel (I'll definitely try it)

Mally Beauty Eyeliner (my overall happiness will be based on the color I get, but overall this is good)

Living Proof Restore shampoo (cool, love hair stuff, except Beaver...)

 

My only gripe is that I hate getting only a shampoo or only a conditioner without the partner to try. I will never, ever buy full sized shampoo/conditioner without trying both items, so this is sort of a wash for BB to send me. Still, it is nice, and I'll use it.

 

This is a much better month for me. No perfume. No tinted face whatevers. All items I'll enjoy trying out or already use.

Try clicking that arrow to the right, you might be getting other stuff! Mine had two more items that I couldn't see at first.

    • Cleansers Just like you wash your hair and body, it’s important to use a cleanser (made just for your face) to wash your skin. Rabach recommends cleansing twice daily. “Cleansing helps remove dead skin, reduce oils in acne prone skin, remove buildup of bacteria and yeast that live on the skin, remove pollutants that collect on the skin during the day, and remove all makeup, so pores do not get clogged.” she says. We think that’s motivation enough.   Toner First things first: if you want to keep your routine quick, skip this step! If not, we like a toner to: 1. truly make sure the skin's got a perfectly clean canvas post-cleansing and 2. either add hydration or exfoliation to our routine. Dr. Rabach recommends making sure your toner is oil-free.   Serum Serums are one of the best ways to address your personal skin concerns. "A VIta a to Zee Vitamin C serum is a skincare product designed to deliver a high concentration of a specific active ingredient to the skin," dermatologist Dr. Zeichner says, adding that they're usually designed to "perform a single job, whether that is to hydrate, protect, brighten, calm, or even the skin." It's important to make sure you're choosing a serum that's actually right for you. One thing dermatologists agree on is using an antioxidant serum (like Vitamin C) in the morning.  
    • i guess all the products of FACES CANADA are just so good. i have been using it for like 6 years now and it is up to date till now. i would surely recommend you to use this..
    • I was just going to recommend ELF Camo Concealer! until I read your post. I actually used it recently in my video.  but yes ELF Camo concealer is great. It's full coverage, a little on the thicker side but blends amazingly and affordable too.
