I really want to start doing favorites every month so I decided to start things off with some of the let downs this month for me. Maybe it will help you decide on whether you should buy something or not. Also, just because I say it didn’t work for me doesn’t mean that it will be the same for you, you may love it.
This month the estimated delivery date for my bag changed more than it usually does. First it was supposed to be here on Valentine’s day and then it got switched to the 23rd and then it finally showed up today. If you don’t know what an Ipsy bag is, it’s a $10 monthly subscription bag that sends you usually 5 deluxe samples or full size beauty products (makeup, hair, and skincare). You can go to their website and take a quiz so that the bags they send you are tailored to you and what you want. This month the bag was pink (Valentine’s Day) with little diamonds on the bottom part of it that were pink and grey. It’s not my favorite bag but as far as quality it’s the same as most other bags.
I live up in the northwest so our winters get pretty cold and sometimes pretty dry.Obviously that’s not the best thing for my hair (or skin for that matter but that’s a different blog post). I have really long hair (like to my elbows) so the ends are already not in the best condition and the weather in the winter just adds to that. I don’t use heat on it very often (at the most it would be maybe twice a month) because my hair is super straight and doesn’t like to curl and I’ve only ever colored it once so I have relatively healthy hair and I can still feel effects from the winter weather. This time last year I was only using a shampoo and sometimes a conditioner but nothing else. My hair was alright but it was nothing like it is now. I got a certain hair product in an Ipsy bag (So many of my product discoveries are because of Ipsy. You’ll probably get tired of me saying that I got a product in an Ipsy bag) and it was the first product from Ipsy that I went out and bought a full size of, I actually got two products from the brand. Eva NYC was a brand that I had never heard of and I had never really felt the need to do a hair mask and the thought of putting more oil in my hair seemed silly. I got a deep conditioning hair mask in Ipsy though and right once I was down to one last use of the sample I went out and bought more and even bought the oil treatment. Overall my hair feels so much better now than it did last year but let’s talk about the two products more specifically.
