January 2014 Ipsy Bag

So I'm a little miffed that my bag was super late this month, but I finally got it yesterday! I was so worried that it maybe got delivered to a different house or something, so I did email them and they assured me that it was in transit. I was hoping to get it earlier because I'm impatient and I always look to see what I'm getting before the bag actually arrives. Let's just say that I'm really pleased with what I got!

The theme this month was called "19 Reasons" because they partnered with 19 different brands. I find that pretty amazing! It's cool that these bags are way more personalized than before, and I definitely loved my bag this month! The bag itself is pretty cute. If you're artsy at all, you can bedazzle this or get creative in some sort of way. The only bummer was that it has a funky smell, and I'm not sure how to describe it. Anyways, cute bag, but lets get on to what's inside!

First up, we have the Skiin Soothing and Smoothing Eye Cream. I'm pretty obsessed with eye creams in general, so I'm stoked to have gotten this! I've never heard of the brand before but apparently it's supposed to help with fine lines and wrinkles along with dark circles and puffiness. If this helps with my dark circles, I'll be thrilled! They've been horrendous lately.

Next up we have the Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner. If I'm not mistaken, I may have gotten one of these in an Ipsy bag before, but I could be wrong. I know I've gotten quite a few of the Sexy Hair products. Never tried this before, but my hair has been horrible too lately. The nasty cold weather has definitely taken its toll on my hair and skin. Excited to try this!

Then we have the Malin+Goetz Mojito Lip Balm. Now Ipsy is telling me I have dry lips, eh? It's true, it's true, my lips have been so chapped that not much has worked for me. This stuff smells nice so I'm curious to see if helps out my poor lips.

The fourth product we have is the Faith Aromatherapy Tahitian Monoi Anti-Aging Sugar Scrub. I had no idea if this scrub was for your face or body, but I went on their website and it looks like it's a body scrub. I love a good body scrub, and sugar scrubs are typically my favorite. 

The last product I received is the Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow Pencil in the color Penny. I'm excited for this because I love coppery bronze shades. It's not the most pigmented color, but I may just use it as a base for powder shadows. 

That's everything I got! Like I said, I'm so so so happy with this month's bag. If I could have a bag with mostly skincare goodies like this, I'd be thrilled. I love makeup as much as the next beauty lover, but I probably have enough to last me for a decade. 

For only $10 a month, plus shipping for some, this is an amazing bag! Sign up here if you're interested! This is the best subscription service I've ever been a part of!
