May is in full swing and we are having some crazy weather here in LA. One day it’s blistering hot in the 80’s the next it’s raining and gloomy. Honestly, I prefer the rain and gloomy weather. Each month I share with you my picks to feature for New In Beauty. Since it’s a new month, today’s video is all about new beauty products for May 2017. If you are a newsletter subscriber and opt to be notified of new blog posts, you get a head start on May’s giveaway. There are lots of fun new product launches, from coconut balm gradual tanner to a true lip mask. Along with the video, it has become tradition for me to include a bag of beauty products to giveaway to one lucky winner. Watch and enter below 🙂
new beauty products may 2017


This month I tried filming in my bedroom. Like the idea of being more personal, but such a struggle with lighting. Let me know what you think. Also I look a bit run down, clearly I need to sleep more or visit a spa.



Good Luck!

I always like to go back every once and awhile to see what brands have been focusing on. Who the leaders in innovation are and who is copying who. Think of it as a beauty time capsule. Also all previous winners are announced in the posts.

Check out last month’s New In Beauty April 2017

A very hard month for me, but you kept me going  in February 2017

    Although I haven’t won any giveaways yet, I truly appreciate all the opportunities you give us to win! Skincare on a budget (even though I can make it work) isn’t as fun. I see so many people try all these different products just because they CAN and it blows my mind because I always wonder what it must be like to do something just because you want to/are able to, you know? Also Serein I keep getting confirm your newsletter subscription emails although I’ve hit the confirm button multiple times, do I need to subscribe every month?

    It’s so kind of you to share all of great skincare gifts to us. I’m so exciting, cant wait to try these ( if I win)….Goodluck everyone. Thanks Serein . Love you…

  20. May 10, 2017 / 8:59 am

    Serein I just wanted to say thank you for all of your hard work and dedication. You truly are amazing and one of my favorite people to follow. Also I really love the background in this video but you do you girl!!?
