I have been subscribing to Ipsy for a few months now (and I am not a paid blogger for them, btw) and have never really offered much up here on my blog about them. Ipsy is a fun monthly cosmetic / beauty subscription service that allows the consumer to try new products without having to leave the comfort of home. Each month a Glam Bag is delivered in a shockingly pink padded envelope to the subscriber for a $10 fee. Inside the envelope is a zippered pouch of some kind (different every single month-how do they come up with all of these different ones?) filled with 4-5 various beauty products handpicked for the subscriber based on a profile that was filled out upon subscribing.
I have been so – so about some of the products, loved some, traded some with fellow Ipsy subscribers and hated a few. I won’t lie. False eyelashes are not part of my daily routine, folks. Knowing me I would end up with glue in places that it does not need to be in an effort to glue them on.
I decided that in efforts to trim the budget I should let my subscription expire so it seemed like this was the month to do it. Judging from what they sent me this month I am glad I have clicked unsubscribe for now.
While I did like the Pacifica Mineral eyeshadow duo and the Sans Tan sunscreen (always be careful out there, folks!) the other skin care items included made me think that there was a theme going. The exfoliating Hey Honey and Purlisse Hydrating Creme were meant to all complement each other. I think the message this month was to take care of the skin. But the item that made me sit back and say……hmmmm….was the aerosol can of spring water.
Full disclosure—-I have not used it yet. Somehow I just can’t wrap my head around spraying water out of a can on my face or as it suggests—other areas. According to their information on the website you are to:
Spray onto the skin in a fine mist. May leave on for 2 to 3 minutes, and then gently pat dry. Ideal for use after cleansing, shaving, exercise, sun, to soothe diaper rash and set make-up to help keep it fresher looking longer.
A 10.58 ounce can can be purchased from Drugstore.com for $18.00. I just can’t do it. Maybe I am missing out on the latest and greatest trend but I just can’t. What about you?
