My May Ipsy Glam Bag ~ Unwrapped

Hi lovelies!  Today I'm sharing my May Ipsy Glam Bag with you.  If you haven't heard of Ipsy, it's similar to the other beauty subscription boxes, it costs only $10 a month, and you get a makeup bag too! {Click to see what was inside!}

Lulu Blossom | Dreamsicle Body Balm
First of all, how adorable is this packaging?  So cute.  And the tin (about 3" in diameter) is the perfect size to throw in your purse!  The best part of all?  The scent!  It really smells like a dreamsicle, reminiscent of childhood summers mmmmm!  This creamy balm is super hydrating and moisturizing, I've used it on my hands (it's great on cuticles!), knees, elbows, and just all over too.  Such a great all in one moisturizer.

Hang Ten | Classic Sport SPF 50
I can never have enough sunscreen.  I love the funky 80s-inspired packaging of the tube, and the SPF 50 is perfect for me.  While I've only used this once so far, I am really pleased with how well it works and the pleasant subtle scent.  It absorbs quickly into skin and is actually made by Coola, one of my fave sunscreen brands, so it's paraben free and all natural.

Pacifica | Mineral Eyeshadow Duo in Duo #2
I honestly had no idea that Pacifica made makeup; I thought it was just fragrance and body products.  I really love the colors in this duo, the shimmery white seems almost iridescent, and the shimmery aubergine is one of my favorite hues.  The pigment is great, the colors go on smoothly and last nicely.

derma e | Microdermabrasion Scrub
I can never have enough facial scrubs to try, and this is one I haven't tried yet.  I like the thick creamy formula with it's little micro-scrubbers.  It's all natural and left my skin glowing.

eva nyc | Rock-A-Wave Curl Cream
This stuff is such a life-saver for me.  I have long wavy hair that gets crazy frizz and can get rather dry.  I applied about a quarter-sized amount to my hands and rubbed them together to emulsify it.  I then just raked my fingers through the bottom half of my damp hair and let it air dry.  My curls were way more defined, my hair was soft and virtually frizz free!

I really loved the products I received to try this month.  Although there were only 2 full sized items, the sample sizes were wicked deluxe, so I am really pleased with that.  The bag came in with a value of nearly $40.
