Hello! Hope you're having a great start to your Memorial Day weekend! Unfortunately, I do work today, but I did somehow manage to get Sunday and Monday off, without even having to ask for it! Unfortunately, my husband works, so I don't think I'll be able to do anything special anyways, but it's nice to have some time to relax.
In this post, I want to share with you guys what I got in my May 2015 Ipsy Glam Bag! Ipsy is a $10 a month beauty subscription service where you get five samples/full sized products plus a unique bag that changes every month. It's one of my favorite subscription services, especially since they seem to have stepped up the quality and value of the samples over the past few months. If you're interested in signing up, you can do so at the Ipsy website, or you can use my referral link here. I will be very thankful if you do use my link, and you may benefit as well since I've heard that you get off the waitlist faster if you use someone's referral link.
The theme this month is Jetsetter, though I've found that the theme of the bag really only affects the design of the monthly bag and what kind of pictures they use on the info card.
Right off the bat, I really liked the bag we got this month!
I will say, though, that the complaint that people have that the tint is kind of dark is totally true. My CoTZ Pure sunscreen is also tinted (otherwise the minerals would leave you with a white-cast), but it blends in seamlessly with my skin. The tint of this sunscreen looks to more of a medium/tan color, which I suppose makes sense since people do get a little darker in the summer (actually, is it possible to tan when wearing a high level of SPF? It must be, since a lot of tanning oils have SPFs in them, though they are on the lower end, and if wearing sunscreen stopped you from tanning completely, then they wouldn't include it), but I don't think I'll ever be the right shade to use this sunscreen. I'm going to keep it and see how well it does match, but even if it ends up always being too dark, I can still use it on my body. The full size is 1.5oz for $19.99, so this 0.35oz sample with worth $4.60.
And that's my May 2015 Ipsy Glam Bag! I got five products this month; two were full sized and three were deluxe sample sized. The overall value of my bag as $53.60, which is over five times what I paid, not even including what I think the bag itself is valued at!
Thanks for reading! <3
