My Ipsy Glam Bag June 2021 Review
Included is a product card that lists the products in your Glam Bag and their retail value.
Each month, Ipsy subscribers get a makeup bag in addition to their items. This month's theme is "Do You," and the bag serves up major 80s vibes with a patchwork of fun graphic images.
CLIV Max Hyaluronic Propolis Foaming Cleanser, 30 ml - Estimated Value $5.60
CLIV Premium is an all-new brand to me, and I have to say, I absolutely love their Max Hyaluronic Propolis Foaming Cleanser. It feels absolutely wonderful on my skin, and after rinsing, my skin feels fresh and clean, without feeling dry or stripped. It's the perfect cleanser for when your skin feels greasy at the end of the day. The texture is a slightly moisturizing, luxurious foam that works into a nice lather and rinses easily. The product is hypoallergenic and fragrance-free, so it works well for my sensitive skin. It also utilizes deep cleaning microbubbles and the propolis extract to purify and clear pores, while helping skin retain its moisture.
I love, love, love K-beauty products, and TONYMOLY is at the top of my list. All of their products have adorable packaging, high quality ingredients, and innovative technology. I am thrilled to receive a sample of the TONYMOLY Watermelon Dew All Over Serum. It's an ultra lightweight, cooling, gel-like serum that absorbs quickly and leaves my face feeling dewy and refreshed. Formulated with 50% watermelon extract, centella asiatica, and aloe leaf extract, this invigorating serum locks in moisture while reducing inflammation and boosting your skin's natural barrier. The bonus -- this lightly scented serum smells absolutely delightful and doesn't leave behind any sticky or slimy texture.
This GLAMGLOW Supermud Instant Clearing Treatment Mask is crazy tingly. I applied a thin layer to my clean skin, and the mask went to work. The tingling sensation let me know that the supermud was doing its job as it dried quickly on my face. With ingredients like eucalyptus leaf and charcoal, this mask is definitely a great option for a good go-to purifying treatment. It absorbs dirt, buildup, and exfoliates dead skin to keep your pores squeaky clean.
F.A.R.A.H Lilac Z-Tweeze Dual-Ended Tweezers, 1 pc - Retail Value $12.00
I'm super excited about these F.A.R.A.H. Lilac Z-Tweeze Dual-Ended Tweezers. This is the first time I've ever received a beauty tool in an Ipsy Glam Bag that wasn't a makeup brush! For me, I find it a refreshing change of pace. This tweezer is dual-purpose. On one end is a super pointed, precise tip, perfect for plucking, and on the other end, is a broad, slanted tip, ideal for applying lashes. Designed with surgical-grade steel, these tweezers are sure to last, with no breaking or warping. If there is a downside, it would be that you can easily stab your palm with whichever end of the tweezers you're not currently using. So, please, beautiful people -- be careful!
THEBALM COSMETICS Autobalm Grl Pwdr in Bourbon St, 2.2 g - Estimated Value $7.15 (Buy a full-size 8 g for $26.50)
TheBalm always has AMAZING packaging, and I'm constantly drawn to any products they release. This Autobalm Grl Pwdr looks like an adorable vintage license plate, and it's only a sample size. I received the shade "Bourbon St," which is a rich mauve shade that works well with my skin tone. This blush blends easily and is long-lasting and buildable. It has a matte finish, and the shade is incredibly versatile. It's a very pretty everyday color for me.
Verdict: This month’s Ipsy Glam Bag was a refreshing way to ring in the summer for me. With the refreshing CLIV foaming cleanser and the fruit-tastic TONYMOLY watermelon serum, my face is getting in the mood for barbecue season. I also love that I received the F.A.R.A.A.H. tweezers instead of the usual makeup brush. I think it's great that Ipsy is including more variety in beauty tools. TheBalm Autobalm blush is a versatile shade that suits my skin tone and is perfect for a natural, everyday look. Lastly, the GLAMGLOW Supermud mask is in my opinion a great addition to this summer bag, since my pores tend to get more clogged during the warmer months. With a retail value of $35.03, this month's Ipsy Glam Bag delivered a great assortment of products curated for the season and definitely provided a good retail value for subscribers.
