Ipsy Glam Bag May 2014 - Fresh Picks

YAY It's May!! So May is here and I couldn't be more excited to get my Ipsy Glam Bag this month as I know I was getting a bonus item because of the little error on Ipsy's end. They were forgiven!! Their great customer service won me over.
So as per usual, if you are new to my blog, I am subbed to Ipsy which is a monthly subscription beauty bag that gives you 4-5 deluxe sample or full size products to try each month for a low price of $10 USD per month. You get to try exclusive beauty products that you may have never heard about, or you heard about it but never got around to purchasing it.
Onto the bag!! This month I received 5 products - 2 Deluxe, 2 Sample size. The theme for this month was Fresh Picks and I have to say I absolutely love this month's bag - hint - It wasn't plastic - IT WAS CANVAS material Whoooooo

Brands this month included Derma E, Olive Natural Beauty, Hey Honey, Boo Boo Cover Up, Jersey Shore Cosmetics, Bondi New York, Pur-Lisse, Balanced Guru, Too Faced, Calvin Klein, Hang Ten, Freeman, Eau Thermale Avene, HSI Professional, Pacifica, Revlon, Eva NYC, Me E Beauty

Now onto my goodies:

Eau Thermale Avenè, Eva-NYC, Calvin Klein, Jersey Shore Cosmetics, Pacifica

Eau Thermale Avenè Thermal Spring Water Deluxe Size
Deluxe Size - $7.77
Full Size - $18

Eva-NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask Deluxe Size

Travel Size (set of 2) - $25

Calvin Klein Endless Euphoria Sample Size
Full Size - $40

Pacifica Mineral Eyeshadow Duo in Moonbeam/Unicorn Sample Size
Since Pacifica made this for Ipsy as they have their full size in a palette of 4 I am unable
to give a cost

Estimated Value of my bag - $35
Minus the fact that the prices are estimated

And finally my BONUS ITEM:

My overall opinion of the bag is that I loved the items in it, with a bit of exception to the sunscreen as I was reading up reviews on that and they weren't too good. But that is everyone's else opinion, mine still needs to be explored. I really love the canvas bag and that perfume smells so sexy. I loved my bonus gift as well.
I give this bag


Thanks so much for stopping by and stay posted for more blogging!!

Review: skyn ICELAND Fresh Start mask with Ice Age Mud

If you follow me you would see that I am subscribed to Ipsy and right now I am trying to use everything I get. I have a bad habit of hoarding makeup and I made a solemn oath to use up all my Ipsy stuff when I get them. So I decided to use my sample packet of skyn ICELAND® Fresh Start Mask with Ice Age Mud from what I got in my February Glam Bag:

On their skyn ICELAND® website here they state that this mask is a weekly 10 minute treatment that polishes and re-texturizes skin to reveal a luminous, youthful translucence for a fresh start. And honestly I believed them from just reading the packet. Here is my review:


Because this was a sample I received a packet and it was a Step 1 and Step 2 process.

Step 1 came out with a blue colored type of clay product and Step 2 came out very transparent and gel like. It had no smell that was distinct, it was basically odorless which was a good thing, as I prefer face products with no smell at all.

STEP 1: A blue clay that you massage all over your face. It did not burn or feel any uncomfortable way.

STEP 2 : A gel like product that you massage over that blue clay so that it can be activated.


I absolutely love this product, I am definitely inclined to purchase products from them. My face felt so rejuvenated and it had this glow. I am definitely sold on this product. I am so happy I got to try this because I would not have heard about skyn ICELAND if it wasn't for Ipsy. I give this product a definite


I would definitely recommend this product!!
