It’s Ipsy Glam Bag time!
If you’ve been reading my past reviews…you will know that I was getting very frustrated with the cheap scent of the bags.
I am really happy to say that this month…the bag doesn’t stink!
And it’s super cute! So that’s a plus.
I think I might switch it out with one of my other bags in my purse because it’s perfect for summer.
Let’s get into the products.
*As always, all descriptions are from the Ipsy website.*
Pacifica. Mineral Eyeshadow Duo.
“The Pacifica Mineral Eyeshadow Duo are coconut infused mineral eye shadows that are a perfect addition to any makeup collection. Packaged in a beautiful travel ready recyclable container, these exclusive duos are customized just for ipsy! These shades can be found in the Pacifica Mystical and Charmed Palette. Smooth application with gorgeous color pay-off.”
This was actually the only makeup sample that I got in this month’s bag. That’s kind of a bummer because the makeup samples are the ones I tend to get the most use out of. As far as this product goes, I’m not so sure I like it. I swatches them and barely any color showed up. I got Duo #1: Celestial & Opal.
Avene. Thermal Spring Water.
“Known for its long history in treating atopic dermatitis, the Avène Thermal Spring Water is the only thermal spring water bottled directly from the source and packaged in a sterile environment to guarantee purity and maximum skin benefits. Its unique composition is proven to soothe inflammation, itching, redness, general sensitivity and post-medical and aesthetic procedure irritation as it softens, protects and purifies the skin. Avène Thermal Spring Water is recommended by dermatologists worldwide.”
This product is really interesting to me. I’ve never quite seen anything like it and I’m a little confused. The two ingredients are water and nitrogen…so I guess I don’t really understand how it’s any different than just spraying water on your face. I’m going to give it a shot though and see how I like it!
Hey Honey. Take it Off! Exfoliating Honey Peel Off Mask.
“Instantly renews skin, leaving it refreshed and clean after only a few minutes. This gel mask helps promote a smooth and clear complexion for a post facial feeling. Take It Off! is quick and easy to use, so exfoliating you can feel beautifully refreshed, radiant and ready to go in just a few minutes.”
Now this is something I am excited about! My skin has been acting out like crazy so I’ve been obsessed with figuring out ways to calm it down. I always like doing face masks (there just might be one popping up in an upcoming favorites!) so I can’t wait to try this out.
Jersey Shore Sun. Sans Tan Anti-aging Sunscreen.
“The Jersey Shore Sun® Sans Tan Anti-aging Sunscreen contains non-nano, anti-aging, certified organic ingredients, including vitamin E (non-GMO) & vitamin D3 which can be deficient in individuals avoiding the sun. SPF 35 provides broad spectrum protection which prevents premature aging and helps to prevent health risks associated with prolonged exposure to the sun. Top rated & recommended for safety, stability and excellent UVA protection, by The Environmental Working Group. Named ‘Summer Must Haves’ in 2013 by PETA Living.”
Sunscreen is always important so I am glad I got this product!
Pur-lisse. Pur-moist Hydra Balance Moisturizer.
“Achieve beautiful balance with the Pur-lisse pur~moist hydra balance moisturizer. Gently smooth over face day or night after cleansing and toning. Glides on like a gel and hydrates like a cream and never greasy. Hydates your skin to create a perfect canvas for makeup application. Dries down to a healthy glow.”
I’m really excited to try this moisturizer because I’ve been looking for a new one lately. The fact that it says never greasy is really what is drawing me in. I’ll let you know what I think!
That’s it for May’s Ipsy Glam Bag!
