Fresh Picks! 

Hey guys! It's that time again...ipsy time! Let's all get excited for the amazing little gift that arrives each month from ipsy. :) 

This months bag is a soft cottony-burlap material & I LOVE it! I'm really into green earth prints right now for summer, so this is going to be perfect for holding my on-the-go make-up must haves in my purse. 

eva-nyc Therapy Session Hair Mask
This was the first product I plucked out of my bag this month & I'm pretty happy about it. I really adore the packaging & the mask itself seems comparable to the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle one that I'm already super fond of. I will give it a try tonight as my hair is seeming a little drier than usual lately & report back with the outcome. :) 

Hang Ten Classic Sport SPF 50
Sunscreen might just be my least favorite thing to get in a subscription bag/box. I always break out when I use sunscreen directly on my face. I prefer to use a moisturizer that has an SPF already packed in as my skin seems to respond to it better. I will probably save this to use on the kids when we have used up all of our other sunscreen. It is a convenient travel size though! 

Me*e Beauty Bee Nourished Night Cream
I'll be the first to admit that my nighttime skincare routine can use a little work. Right now it consists of me stumbling to bed around midnight-2AM, brushing my teeth, reaching for some form of make-up remover, splashing water on my face, applying a night mask & falling asleep. Those things really only happen 4 nights receiving this night cream has inspired a reminder that I need to get my sh*t together in the nighttime skincare department. 5 stars for that! 

Pacifica Mineral Eyeshadow Duo 1
At first swatch this was not a match made in make-up heaven. Both shades seemed chalky & lacking in pigment. Then I tried them out with this amazing invention, that some of you may know...a make-up brush. They were great! Seriously, sometimes I get so caught up in "swatching" new products that I forget that they are generally created with a make-up brush or applicator beyond a finger in mind. I haven't wore them on my eyes yet & I do know that I will need a primer or eyeshadow base to make them *POP*. All in all it's a fun little duo that will pair well with my blue eyes. :) 

Lulu Blossom Dreamsicle Body Balm
This is my favorite product from my May ipsy so far. I'm obsessed with how it smells & it is great for smoothing out my rough skin-elbows, hands, applies so nicely & is not greasy at all. Plus I'm a sucker for anything with vintage-pin-up motif & it's in a totally cute little tin. Consider me a consumer on this one, I fell for this product dreamsicle scent & all.
