First things first. Congratulations to Laura R. who won first prize in the NeoCell Collagen & Beauty Bursts giveaway. And woo hoo to Kim A. who was second prize winner, the Collagen Beauty Builder. I have sent emails to both winners. If I don’t hear back from them within 48 hours, new winners will be selected. And if you didn’t win, don’t be sad. A new giveaway — this time a fabulous moisturizer is the prize — will start up next week. Stay tuned!
Next, the middle of the month is ipsy time for me. That’s when my monthly beauty subscription glam bag arrives in my mailbox. And I’m always excited about it. It’s like getting a present every month. For $10 a month including shipping, it’s worth it in terms of anticipation alone.
So what did I get in my May bag and what did I think about it?
Here’s a video of me opening the well-known metallic raspberry quilted bag, but without the focus on me. I spent a couple of hours in the garden and then went jogging, and I wasn’t video-worthy.
The theme for May is “Fresh Picks”, and the heavy cotton makeup bag with the green leaf print on a natural background is quite appropriate for spring that has finally arrived.
- Hang Ten 50 Natural Sunscreen from Coola
- Hey Girl Honey Peel-Off Exfoliating Mask
- Pur-Lisse Moisturizer for Normal Skin
- Balanced Anti-Frizz Hair Oil
- Pacifica Eyeshadow Duo.
For me, it was a good but not exceptional bag. I think the Pacifica eye shadow was a full size product, and maybe the Hair Oil that came in a small amber glass bottle with a glass dropper was too. The other items were deluxe size samples that will give me enough for several or even many uses.
Most of us, including me, get more excited about makeup than skincare or haircare items, I think. But with the exception of the Hair Oil that I may try to swap or I’ll add to a future giveaway bag on my blog, I will use all of the items. So, although less exciting than some other bags, it is certainly filled with usable items.

To those of you who did that, I personally thank you for helping me earn a full size Bare Minerals Moxie Lipstick in Light It Up, a deep orange/coral that I will review separately. Thank you!!! That’s the item that I was super-excited about receiving!
