IPSY January Bag "19 Reasons"

This months theme was "19 reason" which i don't know why haha, i think its just a New Years Bag. I don't peek at my glam room all month so when i get my bag i am excited. So this month was mostly skincare, which is fine by me because i like to try new things. It also gives me a chance to try things i usually wouldn't buy!
so here the pictures!


 First thing i ulled out was this Elizabeth mott shadow stick. I thought it was just an eyeliner because usually shadow sticks are bigger (like NYX jumbo pencils) just to make it easier to do your eyelid. But the color is really pretty. It did take a few swipes tho to get that color on my swatch :(
 Next, was this (MALIN+GOETZ) mojito lip balm. And this i was really excited about because my lips are dried as hell right now! and its like a thick gel type. It definitely smells like mojito's, which smells so good and refreashing. So I'm really excited and i know i will use this everyday!
 Then there is this Faith Aromatherapy anti-aging scrub. And i always love scrubs so i was excited about this. This will get rid of dead cells, and it also has Monoi oil to help hydrate the skin and help with collagen production! IT also has natural citrus to help awaken the skin and brighten it! and it smells good! so im excited to try this, and it all natural! (even better)


Then there was this Briogeo deep condtioner for the hair. This stuff is really thick and smeels like heaven! and who doesnt need a mask for the hair? i have many others but itll give me a chance to try new kinds! this smells so good so im excited to use this right away! and this will last awhile because its so thick you only need a little!


Lastly, there is these little smaple wipes of the Proactive mark fading pads. Which are just pads that have Salicylic acid. which is a AHA and cleans the surface of the skin, this ingredient is usually in all acne products. BUT the problem is that salicylic acid DOES NOT get rid of dark marks. the only ingredient that gets rid of acne marks or hyper- pigmentation is hyaluronic acid. so i think the totally messed up on this product because what this product is, is just a acne medication pad like other "acne pads" to prevent future acne or heal ones already on your face.



OVERALL: This bag was okay, i wasn't to excited because i feel i got one thing full size, when they say you get 2-3 full sized items. So i was dissapointed. The stuff i got is good but i will probably just use the lip balm, scrub, and conditioner. The other things will just be added to my collection of not used stuff. And the bag was ugly this month! i wasn't happy about that too! wtf ipsy!
hopefully next month is better!
