Ipsy Glam Bag {May 2014} + Sponsor: Bookworms in Dresses

My May Ipsy Glam Bag arrived! This month's theme is Fresh Picks, so all of the products are all-natural and most of them are 100% vegan. Anyway, how cute is the bag? It has a natural look and feel to it, and has cute green leaves all over the front. 

What I got in this month's bag:
♥ EVA NYC's Therapy Session Hair Mask (full size $12)
♥ Hang Ten's Classic Sport SPF 50 (full size $13, sample $3)
♥ Pacifica's Mineral Eye Shadow Duo in #2 (Moonbeam & Unicorn) (duos not sold)
♥ Derma E's Microdermabrasion Scrub (full size $32, sample $16)
♥ Olive Natural Beauty's The Olive Lip Balm in Refreshing Rosemary (full size $6)

This bag was worth about $37!
MINI REVIEWS

Eva NYC's Therapy Session Hair Mask

This hair mask is amazing! I'm sold! It smells sweet and kind of nutty, and it contains keravis protein and argan oil, which deeply conditions, repairs, and strengthens. I've used plenty of hair masks and conditioners that claim to do all sorts of miraculous things, but then leave my hair soft but still frizzy. This Eva NYC mask felt silky on my hair when it was on in the shower, and even after I washed it off my hair felt luxurious and frizz-free! I'll definitely be buying this! I bought a 500 mL container of it since I got a 65% off code from Ipsy!

Hang Ten's Classic Sport SPF 50

Am I the only one who loves the smell of sunscreen? It just smells so good! Anyway, this natural sunscreen has UVA/UVB protection, SPF 50, it's water resistant for 80 minutes, and it's made in the U.S. It's not greasy and doesn't have a synthetic fragrance, but somehow still wonderful. 

Pacifica's Mineral Eye Shadow Duo in #2 (Moonbeam & Unicorn)

I like that this eye shadow is 10% vegan and cruelty-free, and that a portion of the proceeds supports clean water, but it's not the most amazing eye shadows in the world. The purple is a nice dusty, blue-toned color, and the white is a lovely opalescent white with gold shimmer. They're very pretty, but they're not super pigmented. 

Derma E's Microdermabrasion Scrub


This scrub pretty much feels exactly the same as a product I got in last month's bag, the Dr. Brandt exfoliant. They both are a white cream exfoliant that feels like tiny beads of sand on my skin, they both smell like lemon, and they both exfoliate very well. The Derma E, however, is much cheaper if you're looking for a good scrub. 

Olive Natural Beauty's The Olive Lip Balm


This is my favorite product of the bunch! I love trying new lip balms and this one didn't disappoint. I like that it has certified organic ingredients, that it's made in the U.S., and has rosemary in it. It really is nourishing and doesn't feel greasy or too thick. It also smells like rosemary, which is a huge plus. It's pricey for a lip balm ($6), but I would definitely get it again as a mini splurge item.
