January Ipsy Bag

Ah, I am a bit late with this, but nevertheless, here it is! Here's what I got in my Ipsy bag last month:

*Excuse the terrible photos, I had to use my phone.*

1. Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow in Penny

What they say:
The ultimate gel pencil that’s smooth like butter and packed with deliciously creamy colors. These velvety pencils glide on with ease, and contain just enough shimmer. They’re also waterproof and perfect to wear all day and night, a must have for all color lovers! Use a cosmetics sharpener for best results.

What I say: I can definitely attest that this is waterproof. I swatched it on my hand early in the day, and after several hand washes later, it was did not budge by 11pm that night. In fact, when I went to use a makeup remover, there was still a faint line! I love the color I received and will use it both as a shadow base and as an eyeliner!

2. Soothing and Smoothing Eye Cream by skin

What they say:
The skiin Soothing and Smoothing Eye Cream is a full spectrum eye cream that instantly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while working hard to reduce dark circles and puffiness. Helps reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, stimulates collagen production and whitens for a uniform complexion. 

What I say:
I don't really use eye creams as often as I should, but I threw this one in my drawer to remind myself to use it. It's nice and smooth, but I can't really say that it depuffed and helped my dark circles. Either way, it's a great moisturizer for under the eye.

3. Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner by Sexy Hair

What they say:
The Sexy Hair Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner is a powerful combination of Soy and Cocoa work synergistically to perfectly care for your hair! A conditioner that is both a nourishing moisturizer and mild protein reconstructor and safe to use on color-treated hair. This truly amazing conditioner reconstructs, moisturizes and combats environmental stress on all types of hair. 

What I say:I like this product! I've been spraying it in my hair after showering before combing and it really makes my hair soft and smooth. It smells great and leaves my hair feeling even better.

4. Proactive + Mark Fading Pads

What they say:
The Proactiv+ Mark Fading Pads are a convenient, single-use, no-rinse peel pad that can instantly boost your skin’s glow and radiance. The pads help remove dead skin cells to unclog pores and remove dull layers to reveal newer, smoother, more even toned skin. With just a few quick swipes you can help fade away post acne dark marks, reduce the appearance of fine lines and enlarged pores.

What I say:
I've never been a "proactiv girl" so I just kinda turned my nose up to these and hadn't used them. But as I was reading the claims above, I think I will give them a chance. I don't really suffer from discoloration or dark spots, but I do have enormous pores, so I'd be intrigued to see if these really help that!

5. Mojito Lip Balm by MALIN+GOETZ

What they say:
The (MALIN+GOETZ) Mojito Lip Balm is as soothing to the lips as it is to the senses. Flavored with (MALIN+GOETZ) Mojito, this lip balm is scientifically blended to restore and replenish. The hydrating lip gel easily integrates for daily maintenance, prevention and treatment of dry, irritated lips. Color and Paraben free.

What I say:
This has become a product that I use in my routine daily! I would hardly call this a lip balm, as it's more of a clear gel like a gloss but I love it because it doesn't feel like a lip gloss (There's nothing I hate more than putting sticky gel on one's lips) It gives me great shine and also helps my dry cracked lips. I only wished it smelled like mint like the name implies!

That's all I got this month... overall I am really impressed with everything I got.
