September 2021 Ipsy bag

Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription box. Every month you recieve a cute little makeup bag filled with various beauty products. They have a couple options for subscription plans based on the size and amount of products you recieve. I get the smallest plan. It’s called the Glam bag, I get 5 sample size products for $13. They also have a Glam bag plus for $28 which gets you 5 full size items. And they offer a Glam bag X which it’s 7-8 full size items for $42 / quarter.

Purlisse Beauty bb cream. I love this. Its so lightweight you can’t tell you are wearing it. I apply it with a damp blender. My skin looks so soft and natural, while hiding blemishes. Full size product is $35.
Banilla Co cleansing balm. I haven’t tried this yet so I can’t give a review. I will update once I’ve tried it out. Full size product $22.
Origins original skin moisturizer. I haven’t noticed any improvement of my skin tone. But this does help hydrate my skin and minimizes pores. I also like that it doesn’t leave a greasy residue like some moisturizers. Full size $38.
Goldfaden line smoothing concentrate. This stuff is amazing. It helps firm and smooth my skin. Also, reduces fine lines and wrinkles. The only downside is that the full size (30 ml) is $115. A little pricey, especially when there are other serums out there that work the same for less.
Les beauty tinted brow gel. I didn’t like this when I first put it on because it made my eyebrows extremely dark. After sitting for awhile the color did dim down and made my eyebrows look full. This is the full size product which sells for $19. This alone paid for my Ipsy bag.
The bag for this month was cute. Gives me Clueless vibes. (Which I am guessing is what they were going for.)

Overall, I think the Ipsy bag is worth it. The one item in this month’s bag covered the cost of the entire box. Be sure to subscribe to it if it strikes your fancy and let me know what you think!

Walmart Beauty box

The Walmart beauty box is a season based subscription. Four times a year (every season) you recieve a box of samples and some full size items. They also offer some special boxes from time to time. This box is only $6.98 (plus tax) each season including shipping.

This review is for the Fall box.

I love this blender. It’s so soft and blends my foundation well. Sells at Walmart for $4.88.
This soap was ok. The smell is good, but strong. It does not lather well. My kids have been using it though and they don’t seem to mind it. Available at Walmart for $11.98/ 32 oz.
I’m not big on lip gloss and lipstick. I did try this. It smells good, but it’s very sticky. I gave it to my daughter. $4.99 for one lip tint.
I LOVE Woodwick candles. Big, small, every scent. I like to listen to them crackle. It’s so relaxing. I did receive a small 3 Oz sample in the box. Full size this candle is $16.87 (9.7 oz). The scent is Juniper and Spruce. It smells like a woodsy soap. I am currently in the process of burning a Pumpkin Butter scented Woodwick, but can’t wait to burn this one.
We haven’t tried this yet. I’m going to make my husband or kids try it. I don’t like the activated charcoal products. $5.96 for 16 Oz.

You recieve one of 2 Bliss products. We received the Clear Genius clarifying cleanser. I like the smell of this cleanser. I have used Bliss products in the past. I like them, but they feel thick. They do work though. $13 for 6.4 Oz. The other Bliss product you could have received was a Jelly glow peel daily exfoliator. Sells for $12 for a 4 Oz tube.
Receive one Cleen product. We got the Lavendar Chomomile night cream. This stuff smells amazing, very calming scent.. I have been using it every night right before bed. My skin is so smooth. It is very lightweight. Not at all greasy. 2.0 Oz container is $9.97. The other Cleen product was a Grapefruit water gel moisturizer. Also, available for the same price.

I love getting these boxes. They are a great value. Always, way exceeds the amount you pay for it. Gives the purchaser a chance to try out new products without wasting money. Be sure to check them out. I highly recommend!
