Subscription Satelite: Ipsy Glam Bag June 2020

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with another subscription post!

Ipsy Glam Bag June 2020

It’s time for Ipsy since it arrived today to my mailbox. It was supposed to be here Saturday but it got delayed. What else is new? Anyways, this month’s bag is interesting but it does balance out with my GB Plus which I am waiting for that to come in since I got really good products in that one but let’s see what I got here first. I did forget to mention in my Boxy post the price of that box but if you go back to my past posts on that you would find the price of the base box that way. This bag is $12 a month and you get sample to deluxe size and sometimes full size items from brands you may have not heard and want to try or may have heard and want to try new products by them. It’s a good way of experimenting especially with their bundles in Ipsy Offers.

Dewy Tree the Clean Lab AC Dew Foam: First up is from a brand I never heard of and that is the Dewy Tree. It’s a K Beauty brand that uses the innate healing to enhance the effects of the natural ingredients in their products which is interesting since the body does heal itself and good that we can use that with these products. Let’s see what this product claims to be. This item has a PH balance of 6.6 which is non-irritating and it will hydrate the skin and clean since it’s a cleanser that is very gentle on the skin for sensitive skin types to use. The addition of Japanese Umbrella Pine Extract and the its anti-microbial properties help get rid of any bacteria that may cause acne and the lather will happen on contact with skin without any harsh rubbing. I have to try this out since this is an interesting product to me. I never heard of Japanese Umbrella Pine before either. Apparently the Umbrella Pine is an expensive and rare conifer tree that grows slowly over time and apparently it’s small too. Also, it’s a sacred tree it is associated with Buddhism in Kyoto. My question is how did this brand get the extract though? Sounds interesting though but can’t wait to see how this works on my sensitive skin and I do feel my pores around my nose kind of clogged since it’s taking me a bit of time to get back into my skin care routine after being injured and now have my scar under my eye. Not kidding, you may see it in future videos and pictures of me.
Sur.Medic Azulene Soothing Cream: Another new brand I never heard of before is known as Sur.Medic. This brand is more of a First Aid type brand that uses solutions that are effective, easy, and accessible. This product has Sica that helps with itchiness and irritation in the skin. Also Azulene is used to help with the protective barrier of the skin to keep hydration in and bad things out. I will definitely try this out since I am getting back into my skin care routine again and it felt good starting it up again due to how bad it was clogging up near my nose. So, will have to see how this goes!
First Aid Beauty Hello Fab Pores Be Gone Matte Primer: Why does this brand have to have a mouthful with their products? Oh well! A new item from First Aid Beauty and it’s a face primer. This is a multi-tasking and oil free primer that helps with keeping makeup on even during sweat. This helps face products that are layered on the skin to be long-lasting and it also helps with skin concerns by smoothing them out. I don’t have oily skin but I am willing to try this out since First Aid Beauty is known for being sensitive skin friendly. I have been using the Facial Radiance Pads by them and it has been helping. I will have to try this out during my Facebook live stream then. Let’s see what happens!
Eddie Funkhouser Dome Blending Brush: I heard of this brand but never got any of the items in my bag until now and that is a domed blending brush. This brand was created by Eddie Funkhouser who is a veteran makeup artist, spokesperson, and an expert product developer which I can see why he created his brand. This is a brush that contains synthetic bristles that can be used with powder and cream products. When I got this I saw that it’s perfect for the creases in my eyes due to how small it is and it’s very lightweight too. I will definitely be enjoying this brush!
Sugar Cosmetics Matte as Hell Lip Crayon in Scarlet O Hara: Final item is my Choice Item for this month and it’s from Sugar Cosmetics! This was offered with other colors but I chose this one. This is a full coverage and highly pigmented lip crayon that doesn’t crease nor dehydrate the lips and stays fresh from morning coffee to evening. I have enjoyed products from this brand since I did get the Purple Rain eyeliner pencil when I got back to Ipsy and loved it and used it all up so now glad to try a lip product by this brand and can’t wait to wear it!

That is it for this bag! I found this bag pretty well balanced especially with what I will be getting in GB Plus. It is close to summer and a lot of people do tend to wear more skin care products since the harsh rays of the sun tends to cause some damage and we need to protect it. Especially here on the coast where we do have a lot of beach lovers and the sun can be really harsh! I’m glad to try two new skin care brands alongside a new item from First Aid Beauty and Sugar Cosmetics and finally getting to check out Eddie Funkhouser as well. Can’t wait to see what July brings for the bag since it is Independence Day and it gets ten times hotter here in Florida during July than June to tell you the truth. Stay tuned for my GB Plus because it’s supposed to be on its way but it hasn’t budged much and I did sign up for tracking updates to be emailed to me because I did order a Purlisse duo last month but never arrived and don’t know what had happened which I did contact DHL about it and nothing has come up yet which I will update you guys about that. Until next time!

The Subscription Satelite: BoxyCharm February 2020!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with a subscription!

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance PadsCiate London Every Day Vacay Coconut PowderAlomar Cosmetics Complexion Brush TrioBoxyCharm February 2020!

Oh yes it’s that time again and that is my subscriptions! All three came in this week and was surprised that it did. On Tuesday my Glam Bag Plus and BoxyCharm came in first and then yesterday my Ipsy came in. Never saw that happen until this month this year. I’m not complaining! Anyways, this box is $25 a month and you get five full size products from prestige and luxury brands! I didn’t get a card so I have to go off the website from what I got! Thank you Seeing A. I. for letting me know what was in my box!

Becca Cosmetics Ultimate Cover 24 Hour Foundation: First is another item from Becca and this time it’s the foundation that was on a card a few months ago. If you remembered me mentioning that BoxyCharm gave a quiz on complexion products and asked everyone about their foundation and concealer because they were starting to give out these items this year and depending on your box you either got a card with samples of Pretty Vulgar’s concealer or Becca’s foundation and I got Becca’s foundation card and matched myself to Cashmere. This was also what I picked but decided to do the pick since knowing that they may get it wrong but glad I did get to choose this in my Boxy Choice even though it didn’t give me the shadow pallet from Iconic London but I realized I have so many shadow pallets I need one month off at least and they did it last February too with a break from a shadow pallet. Anyways, I did hear this is a dry skin horror but I want to try and see if this is true since I have dryness issues and see how it goes and how the shade looks on me in full. Plus it claims to be breathable so have to see! This foundation retails for $44!
Alomar Complexion Brush Trio: Next is another product from Alomar and this time its brushes and it’s a face brush trio. I’m happy to get these since I do love brushes and can’t go wrong in having good face ones either. These feel really soft and I can’t wait to try these and see how well my makeup blends as well. These retail for $36!
First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads: Next is something I haven’t gotten in a subscription in a long time and that is from First Aid Beauty. Remember when I first tried them in Ipsy? Well, I got them here through BoxyCharm and its Facial Radiance Pads. These kind of remind me of my Clearasil pads but these work differently. These pads contain the daily amount of lactic and glycolic acids that help smooth and brighten the skin and also tone it even sensitive skin types like me. So far these have been pretty good because I’ve been using them after cleaning off my makeup to help balance my skin again since I do wear makeup to work every day and having something after cleaning it off makes it feel cleaner. I will have to keep using these. I wonder if Ulta carries these because they retail for $17.
Ciate London Everyday Vacay Coconut Setting Powder: I am so glad I got another powder so I won’t have to run out to buy another! That is one good thing I love about subscriptions I don’t have to worry about re-stocking on products and over stocking on them either so I can just use my backups as time goes on. Anyways, I’m glad that I get to try another item from Ciate London that is face related and this is supposed to smell slightly like coconut and it’s finely milled and doesn’t cause flashback either. I can’t wait to use this since I’m using another powder at the moment. This retails for $22!
Ebio Cleansing Hemp Wipes: Final item is from Evio and they are cleansing wipes. I have to say is these aren’t good for makeup cleaning on the face because they suck! I tried to use these on removing my Lash Princess Waterproof Mascara and had a hard time when they claim to remove any waterproof makeup. I also feel like with the first two wipes they were kind of dry. I am just going to use these to clean my brushes instead of cleaning my makeup off because I think the Pharmacy Green Clean and the Up & Up Wipes just work a lot more than these! $9.50 is their retail price and I would not recommend.

Well guys that is it for this month’s box. I did find it a little meh but I’m actually happy that I get to try an actual foundation as in not a trial size bottle. Also, I get to try a powder from Ciate London which will be great once I get to open it at last. Not only that getting to try brushes from Alomar and another First Aid Beauty item kind of rounded it off. Not too bad of a box and glad to try new things from brands I have tried even in other subscriptions. Can’t wait for March’s box! So guys stay tuned for Glam Bag Plus!
