Ipsy Glam Bag| May 2014

My loves,

“It’s a month of crisp air, vibrant flowers, and fresh Glam Bag products! Getting your beauty to bloom all month long will be as easy as lying in the warm grass and basking in the sunshine.”

From a selection of 24 products the Ipsy Glam team carefully selected 5 products for each Ipsy Member determined by their Ipsy profile. I always love coming home to my Ipsy Glam bag in the mail once a month. It’s like receiving a surprise present once a month, and who doesn’t love that?

Glam Bag Products:

Bare Foot Spa Professional Exfoliating Polish Full Size $5.99

“Bare Foot Spa Professional Exfoliating Polish is an aquatic-inspired, shimmering body polish that delivers gentle exfoliation for skin that’s rejuvenated and re-energized. Non-abrasive micro-granules buff away dead skin as Apricot Oil nourishes and sooths. Our triple-botanical ReCapture Complex helps eliminate toxins, restore essential nutrients, and reinvigorate with antioxidants to reduce surface roughness. Shimmering Mica enhances skin’s natural radiance.”

IMG_3579I love trying body polishes, especially ones that promise to enhance the skin’s natural radiance. This exfoliating body polish from Bare Foot Spa Professional is a gentle exfoliant that helps eliminate toxins and restore essential nutrients. I was very excited to see this product in my glam bag this month, because after this horribly cold, dry winter, my body certainly needs a really good exfoliation.

Eva NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask Full Size  $40.00

“The Therapy Session Hair Mask deeply conditions, repairs and strengthens dry and damaged hair. Argan Oil nourishes and revitalizes, while Keravis Protein drastically increases hair’s strength and elasticity. The results are hydrated, soft and manageable hair.”

IMG_3565I was also very excited when I saw this product in my monthly glam bag. I cannot wait to try this hair mask from Eva NYC! My ends are crazy dry and I tend to get split ends very easily because I colour my hair. This mask should be really good for my hair because it promises to deeply condition, strengthen and repair dry and damaged hair.

To Use: Use either as a weekly treatment or an everyday conditioner. In either case apply generously to the hair, wait 2-5 minutes and rinse thoroughly. Use alone, or enhance with a few drops of the Eva NYC Hungry Hair Oil Treatment.

Hang Ten Classic Sport SPF 50 Full Size  $12.99

“Protect and nourish your skin with our clear, lightweight, naturally scented sunscreen. Provides maximum water resistance and full body coverage against harmful UVA/UVB rays.”

IMG_3567Now I haven’t used many different types of UV protection but I do use a tinted moisturizer that has SPF in it. I prefer to use UV protection within another makeup product that I use on a regular basis. Not to mention I don’t really love the smell of this product from Hang Ten and I don’t like using creams on my face with scents.

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.”
IMG_3575As you all know I’m not a huge fan of shimmer when it comes to eyeshadow. However, this duo from Pacifica could actually work quite nicely. The lightest colour will work perfect for a highlight colour for the brow bone. And the light shimmery brown would be perfect for an accent in the outer corners of the eye. Just a touch of shimmer with some matte eyeshadow would look beautiful.

LuLu Blossom Dreamsicle Body Balm  $10.00

“The Lulu Blossom Dreamsicle Body Balm is a deep moisturizing balm which can be used just about anywhere on the body. Made with Shea butter and grape seed oil, it’s great for cuticles, cracked or dry skin on elbows hands and feet or even hair. Use instead of lotion, it’s rich and creamy without being greasy. The convenient size is perfect to carry in your purse.”

IMG_3562 IMG_3559This Body Balm is great for cuticles, cracked elbows and feet. It can also be used in place of an all over body moisturizer. I personally like to use it for my cuticles and any areas of my body that are extra dry and in need of some moisture. You know when you are out and about and you find a dry patch of skin that just drives you crazy? Well, that’s when this lovely balm from Lulu Blossoms’s comes in handy.  It’s in a perfect container to carry with you in your purse.

I love the cute little makeup bag all the product came in this month. I really enjoyed this month’s glam bag with the exception of the sunscreen. I will definitely get good use out of the exfoliating body polish, body balm and hair mask. I will be a whole new person, with glowing skin, healthy hair and moisturized skin!

What did you think of this month’s glam bag?
