Review: October Ipsy Glam Bag

October Ipsy Glam Bag $10 a month

La Fresh Eco-Beauty Oil-Free Face Cleanser Wipes
I was incredibly excited for these wipes when I opened my bag in the middle of October, but they quickly disappointed me after just one use. The smell put me off immediately and they didn't remove any of my makeup. My skin was left feeling greasy and like there was a layer of grime on it. Not pleasant. 

Zoya Nail Polish in "Giovanna"
I really liked the Zoya polish I received in a past Ipsy bag, so I was pretty jazzed to see another one in this month's. The color is an amazing blue/teal and it lasts well on the nails without a top coat. However this polish really stained my nails when I removed it. I'm not sure if it's just the dark shade because my last Zoya polish was a white, or what, but it took quite a lot of effort to get my nails back to a normal shade again. I still really love the color and have a feeling I'll continue to use to polish regardless of the staining.

Nourish Organic Deeply Nourishing Coconut & Argan Body Lotion
By far my favorite product of this month's Ipsy, this lotion is amazing. It's just the right thickness and sinks into the skin nicely. I can't put my finger on the scent as it isn't very coconut-y, but I love it regardless. Once my No Beauty Buy is up I'm headed straight to Target to get myself a full sized container of this stuff. It's that awesome.

Sexy Hair Blow Dry Volumizing Gel
I used this gel to add some grit to my hair before getting it done for a recent wedding. It left my hair feeling fairly dry, but not necessarily brittle. It did add some volume, but it's definitely not a gift from heaven on the volume front (sadly enough). It's quite a large sample so I'll have it for a while, but I won't be buying the full size of it when I run out of the sample.

Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in "Dolly"
This product was downright weird. The shade is lovely, but when I put it on my lips it was thick, sticky, and made my lips tingle. Not just a light minty tingle, but a full fledged something is happening to my face tingle. I was not a fan and have since moved this lipgloss into my don't want stash to hopefully pass off on a friend who doesn't mind the intense tingle.

Overall my expectations for this bag after I opened it ended up being a little to high. There were a few pretty good products, but still not sending me over the moon with joy and bliss. I'm hopeful for next month's (as per usual), but I'm starting to wonder if I should save my money and use it to buy samples I know I'll like.

What are your thoughts on this month's bag?
