I have been subscribed (subscription is paid for by me) for almost a year and I love my subscription. Yes, there are months that I may not like some of the products that I get but I always get my moneys worth. Now let’s get down to the nitty gritty and see what I received this month.

Eva NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask

The Therapy Session Hair Mask deeply conditions, repairs and strengthens dry and damaged hair. Argan Oil nourishes and revitalizes, while Keravis Protein drastically increases hair’s strength and elasticity. The results are hydrated, soft and manageable hair.

To Use: Use either as a weekly treatment or an everyday conditioner. In either case apply generously to the hair, wait 2-5 minutes and rinse thoroughly. Use alone, or enhance with a few drops of the Eva NYC Hungry Hair Oil Treatment.

Weight: 2.03 oz  Full size 16.912 oz(500 mL) @ $40.00

I am really excited to have gotten this hair mask. I am always looking for new and good hair mask for my dry and color-treated hair.

Pacifica Mineral Eyeshadow Duo

The Pacifica Mineral Eyeshadow Duo are coconut infused mineral eye shadows that are a perfect addition to any makeup collection. Packaged in a beautiful travel ready recyclable container, these exclusive duos are customized just for ipsy! These shades can be found in the Pacifica Mystical and Charmed Palette. Smooth application with gorgeous color pay-off.ipsy subscribers who receive this product will receive Duo #1 (Celestial & Opal) or Duo #2 (Moonbeam & Unicorn).Weight: 0.07 oz  Mystical Palette is $14 (4 shadows) Charmed Palette is $17 (6 shadows)

I received the Duo #2 (Moonbeam & Unicorn). I am assuming the purple shade is Unicorn and the sparkly cream color is Moonbeam. I was not that happy with this product because the purple shade is not very pigmented. The sparkly cream color will be good to give the middle or inner 1/3 of my eye lid some shimmer.

Avene Thermal Spring Water Spray Mist

Known for its long history in treating atopic dermatitis, the Avène Thermal Spring Water is the only thermal spring water bottled directly from the source and packaged in a sterile environment to guarantee purity and maximum skin benefits. Its unique composition is proven to soothe inflammation, itching, redness, general sensitivity and post-medical and aesthetic procedure irritation as it softens, protects and purifies the skin. Avène Thermal Spring Water is recommended by dermatologists worldwide.

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.

Weight: 1.76 oz  Full size is 10.58 oz @ $18

When I followed the link on Ipsy’s website to buy this product to see how much full size is it led me to drugstore.com, which I am not complaining, I love Drugstore.com

This product is the one I am most excited about! I did spray it on my face already and Oh! yes it does sooth your face!

Jersey Shore Sun Sans Tan Anti-aging Sunscreen

This product, I am not sure about. I guess I should be proud since I really don’t have a sunscreen and I know I need to use one but not on my face.  Most all my foundation and moisturizers already have sunscreen in them.

Calvin Klein endless euphoria

Refreshingly light and radiant, endless euphoria Calvin Klein translates the provocative fantasy of the iconic euphoria fragrance into a sunlit daydream filled with cherry blossoms and an air of sheer sensuality. A new dawn of euphoria arrives with the introduction of endless euphoria, a statement-making innovation on the signature that debuts an entirely original design and juice. endless euphoria sparks the rich sexiness of the signature with a fresh infusion of modern sensuality to create a newly addictive spin. Irresistibly alluring, the fantasy blooms with an uplifting feeling of ecstasy that knows no limits.

Weight: 0.1 oz  Smallest bottle sold is 2.5 oz @ $69. The link on Ipsy’s website led me to Macy’s  website to purchase.

I am very excited about this deluxe sample. It smells so good and it is a roller ball perfume sample.

The bag as you see above is nothing real fancy.  I actually like that it is just a cloth makeup bag. I can wash it, if it gets dirty and it holds more also.  All in all, I would say this was just an okay month for me! I definitely like last month’s bag better but I still got my $10 worth.

Beth Sign Off 2

  • I would have liked to get the Avene mist! I realize it’s basically just water, but facial sprays are so refreshing as the weather gets warmer.

    • I know, it felt so good and refreshing on my face when I tried it out when I opened the bag!

  • I got the Avene mist… I think it’s a strange product, but maybe I’ll appreciate it this summer. I got the shadow, too, in a different shade. I agree it isn’t very pigmented, but I usually like nude shadows, so it works for me.

    • I am sure you will appreciate the mist this summer too! I am going to use it when I go walking to spray on my face when I get hot!
