When I got on the Ipsy website to check what I was getting this month I wasn't as excited to get it as I was with the last two months. Well this is what I got:
Before I get into talking about the products I want to talk about the make up bag. It is cute right??!! As cute as it maybe when I first got the bag out of the package, I smelled this horrible scent and I wasn't sure where it was coming from. I realized that it was coming from this bag and its unfortunate. I might throw it out because of it!
Back to the products I am going to start with my most favorite product in this bag. This is the Briogeo Don't Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Mask.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! First of all, lets start with the smell, it smells like vanilla. Secondly, after just using it once, it made my hair feel super soft. I cannot stop running my hands through my hair. Its supposed to help with breakage, but I am not sure if it helps with that. I love that it has natural ingredients like rosehip, avocado, and argan oils. I highly recommend this product. The only thing that sucks is that its kinda pricey. It's $26.
Next product is Faith Aroma Therapy Tahitian Monoi Anti-Aging Sugar Scrub.
This product has a very citrus-floral scent to it. It says that this anti-aging sugar scrub uses fine granules to exfoliate cells, while Monoi Oil increases collagen production, lock in moisture and fight free radical damage for smoother, brighter skin. I used it in the shower on my face and it made my face feel smooth and very moisturized. Only thing I didn't like was that when I rinsed it off my face felt oily and I had to wash my face with soap a couple of times.
Next product is Mojito Lip Balm.
I hate getting lip balms in my bag mainly because my lips are super stubborn and only moisturize with the Carmex lip balm. I decided to
go ahead and try it since I received it in the bag. It has a very gel like texture and I don't like it. Its very sticky and it dries my lips.
Next product is Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow.
The color I received is called Penny. Its a very pretty shimmery copper color. You can use it all over the lid or as a liner. I tried using it as a lid color and it failed for me. I always have bad luck with shadow pencils. It went on smooth, was very easy to blend, and after I did a swatch on my hand I rubbed my fingers on it and it will not budge. My problem with it was that it creased on me. Lesson learned: only use it as a liner.
Last product in the bag is Proactiv+ Mark Fading Pads.
To me adding this to my bag was pointless. This is part of a 3-step system and if you are adding this why not add the other 2?! On the back it says to use after using step 1 so I didn't even try these. Actually I might give them to my brother.
Overall I think this month's bag was so and so. It didn't impress me like the last two bags did, but I am glad I got to try out these products. For your information the bag normally doesn't stink. Its only $10 a month. You get 5 products and a different make up bag each month. Products are normally either full size or decent sample sizes.
