May 2014 Ipsy Glam Bag
This month’s theme is Fresh Picks. The bag is a soft canvas with a green leafy print on it. At first when I opened it, I was uninspired. But as I explored the products further, I realized I really can use some of them so my frown turned upside down. The majority of the products are all natural so I am assuming that is what Ipsy meant by Fresh Picks. I am all for that.

Avène Thermal Spring Water $18 @drugstore.com
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.
It is water in a can. But guess what? I like water in a can LOL. I always have an Evian facial spray around as well as MAC Fix+. It may be gimmicky but I like it. It does help refresh your face before makeup application and during the day.
Calvin Klein endless euphoria perfume
Refreshingly light and radiant, endless euphoria Calvin Klein translates the provocative fantasy of the iconic euphoria fragrance into a sunlit daydream filled with cherry blossoms and an air of sheer sensuality.
I actually like this scent. Very clean. Plus I like the little roller ball applicator.
Eva NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask $12 @eva-nyc.comThe 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.
I love hair masks. My hair is dry and damaged from colouring so I try to do a mask every week at least. I am going to use this tonight. It has Argan Oil in it so I wanted to try it ASAP.
Jersey Shore Sun Sans Tan Anti-aging Sunscreen $40 @jerseyshoresun.comThe 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.
I have never heard of Jersey Shore Sun before. My first thought when I read the brand was ‘Snooki has sunscreen?’ LOL Not so. Since it is an anti-aging organic sunscreen I am glad to try it out. But for the amount of sunscreen one needs to use daily, $40 seems a little steep for me to spend on sunscreen.
Pacifica Mineral Eyeshadow Duo in Moonbeam & Unicorn @pacificaperfume.comThe 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.
While the colours look beautiful, they didn’t swatch so great. I am a little meh about this duo.
While I wasn’t totally thrilled when I first opened my Ipsy bag, I am pleasantly pleased with these products. I guess I have come to expect to find mostly makeup in my Ipsy bags. It not like I don’t have enough makeup already!
