I am so excited for April, the boxes will have Mad Men tie-ins for the final season premiering in April.

I ordered a mens' box for my self-proclaimed 'dirty hippie' scientist-prof hubby just to get enough points to hit ACES for a shot at the curated box..

My husband's April box is loading, and I have the say that the "Mad Men" theme is painfully absent. It's just another box with only 3 grooming samples (from the same brands, as per usual) and the lifestyle item. I hope the women's box does a better job with this theme.

I would love for this month's PYS to be some type of lifestyle item like headbands, bracelets, tea, or something different than we usually get in our boxes.

The last boxes I've left to chance and I think luck has been on my side. I think I better stay that way for April too and see if my luck continues. :D /emoticons/biggrin@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20">

BOTH of mine were, too. Even worse, the boxes nearly identical despite the profiles on each deliberately selecting the opposite 'likes' of the other for variety!
it's a mystery!  I have a fine, straight hair and they sent me a mask for medium/coarse hair.  I did complain to them about that and of course, they stated that it works for ALL hair types (cough, cough).  If the brand is stating that it is for medium/coarse, BB has no business stating otherwise, imho

According to the article about the Mad Men box, the women's will have, "liquid eye liner for cat eyes, bold lip pencils and hairspray to hold beehive barnets in place." I don't really need any of those things.

I don't either. Don't use these types of products but I guess getting something new that I wouldn't normally pick might be kind of fun

After February's disastrous "you're only eligible for ONE box combo fiasco" with my PYS choice, I decided to leave March up to chance. It was awful. I finally cancelled my ACES account after having it for 3 years. I stated my issues when I cancelled and explained I was better off scrapping the account and starting over. I then received an email from CS asking if I had tried tweaking my profile for better options. Um... what? You think after 3 years I wouldn't have tried everything I could to make it better? I had to laugh.

Sorry to hear @@jumpnshout5 that you have had to go through all that. I chose an upgrade once, it was a necklace and it worked ok. I think it was in the beginning when they started to offer the extras. I've got some not so stellar boxes too during the past couple of years with BB but the last two chance ones have been great. Hope your new box with the new account will be great.

I think the only way to get your money's worth from a really old Aces account would be if you always opted for the curated. The no-repeat rule seems oddly enforced. I can get every color of the rainbow of Cynthia Rowley lipstain, but I can't have two prep and protect samples even if I got the first one three years ago. :wacko:

I'm still waiting for my March box. I did peak and my box is ok I guess, not really thrilled with it. I think I'm better off as well just scrapping this old account and starting over.

oh horrors.  I just got an email on an inactive account, wanting to me to sign up and they displayed some samples.  the DREADED POP brand is in there.  Really, BB?  POP?  That has to be one of the worst makeup companies, along with be a bombshell

if that is one of the choices, blech.

 Although the coral lippy is kind of cute, I might just get the Mad Men box on my yearly and cancel my second sub.

Are we thinking that this is the official April PYS?
