It’s time for my May Ipsy bag! In case anyone isn’t sure what Ipsy is, it’s a $10 monthly subscription service for beauty and makeup products that come in a different makeup bag every month. You usually get four to five products a month, and typically at least one or two are full-size products. I always feel like I’m getting the best bang for my buck with it. Click here to sign up and give it a try! The theme of this month’s bag is Fresh Picks. Be sure to check back next month for a review on these products!
Eva NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask
What Ipsy says: The Therapy Session Hair Mask deeply conditions, repairs and strengthens dry and damaged hair. Argan Oil nourishes and revitalizes. Keravis Protein drastically increases hair’s strength and elasticity. The results are hydrated, soft and manageable hair.
What I say: I love trying new hair products, so I’m excited to give this a try! It has Argan oil in it and it smells heavenly. Also, this is a pretty good sized product, which is exciting.
Calvin Klein endless euphoria
What Ipsy says: endless euphoria sparks the rich sexiness of the signature with a fresh infusion of modern sensuality to create a newly addictive spin. The fantasy blooms with an uplifting feeling of ecstasy that knows no limits.
What I say: I also love trying new perfumes, so I look forward to wearing this. I think my mom has used this perfume in the past, and it smells really nice.
Jersey Shore Sun® Sans Tan Anti-aging Sunscreen
What Ipsy says: The Jersey Shore Sun® Sans Tan Anti-aging Sunscreen contains non-nano, anti-aging, certified organic ingredients. SPF 35 provides broad spectrum protection which prevents premature aging and helps to prevent health risks associated with prolonged exposure to the sun. Named ‘Summer Must Haves’ in 2013 by PETA Living.
What I say: Now that Fargo has decided it’s time for summer and we just skipped right through spring, sunscreen is quite important. I’m sure this will definitely come in handy. It’s a good size to just toss in my purse.
Pacifica Mineral Eyeshadow Duo in the shade Duo No. 2 (Moonbeam and Unicorn)
What Ipsy says: 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.
What I say: I think this is a full-size product, which is great, but the quality of the packaging and the shadows leave much to be desired. The lighter color swatched okay, but the dark purple took quite a few swipes to make it stand out. I’ll give it a shot on my eyelids, but I don’t have high hopes right out of the gate. Also, the top of the packaging snapped off the first time I opened it. It snapped right back on, but still, it’s inconvenient.
Avène Thermal Spring Water
What Ipsy says: 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.
What I say: I think this is the product that intrigues me the most. I’ve never used any type of water spray on my face before, and you can apparently use it for a wide variety of things, so we’ll see what happens! I’m very curious about this.
