May 2014 Ipsy Bag - "Fresh Picks"

Hello Dolls,

It's a new month and that means I received a new Ipsy bag!

I am really loving Ipsy so far. I look forward to it every month. 

For my May 2014 Ipsy Glam bag - Fresh Picks, this month I received mostly skin care products. I wish I would have had more variety but I was still happy with it. 

  • AVENE | THERMAL SPRING WATER (1.76oz) - Full Size (300g) $18 A can of water may seem less than appealing to some however I am over the moon about receiving this product from Ipsy! I am truly devoted to my Caudalie Beauty Elixir, however it is quite expensive so I like to only use it in the morning and evening with my skincare routine. The Avene Thermal Spring Water is a great option to use during the day when I want to freshen my make up, cool down or even ease a sunburn. It's only water but you have to admit that it feels great on the skin!
  • JERSEY SHORE SUN | SANS TAN ANTI-AGING SUNSCREEN (0.5oz) - Full Size (2oz) $40  astounding, the Jersey Shore Sun company has created a sunscreen that is not only safe to our sensitive skin, but also takes the enviroment into account, as sunscreen can wash off into our oceans. I will definitely be using this sunscreen to protect my skin this summer as it is formulated without: Retinyl Palmintate (associated with risks of birth defects), Oxybenzone (associated with low birth rate and endometriosis in women), Parabens or Paba, Petrochemicals and Fragrance.
  • Pur~lisse pur~moist ($16.18):  When I first saw my Glam Bag I thought this was a lip balm and was SO excited about it.  Once it realized that it was a moisturizer I was less excited.  But still, I will throw it in my travel bag so it will come in handy.
  •  PACIFICA MINERAL EYESHADOW DUO IN CELESTIAL/OPAL (Sample size 0.07oz/2g, approx. value $4.00): These appear to be two shades from the Pacifica "Mystical Supernatural" palette (linked above). I have mixed feelings about this shadow duo - on one hand I really want to try Pacifica's shadows, but on the other, these colors aren't that exciting to me. So I haven't opened it yet - maybe I'll change my mind. We'll see.
  •  Hey Honey Take It Off! Peel Off Mask (Sample size 10ml, approx. value $7.00):
    This mask supposedly contains AHAs for exfoliating magic. Interesting. When I first saw it in the bag I was very excited, I do enjoy a chemical exfoliation now and then.


What did you Dolls receive in your Ipsy Glam Bags this month? I was really Hoping for the too faced bronzer, I seen others had received but oh well. Hopefully next month.
