January Glam Bag

I finally returned to my parent’s house and picked up my January Glam Bag. “What is a Glam Bag” you ask? Well a Glam Bag is a makeup bag sent via mail from youtube guru Michelle Phan’s company MyGlam. A bag is sent out every month with 4-5 deluxe sample or full size beauty products. The Glam Bag cost $10 a month which includes shipping as well. It’s something like a Birch Box but with bigger samples. This is my first beauty by mail subscription and I must say I was pretty excited to finally pick mine up from my LA house.

This month’s bag was filled with environmentally friendly products. It comes in a cute metallic envelope with an actual makeup bag. I received a full sized Freeman Facial Peel-Off Mask in cucumber, SheerCover Duo Concealer, Wen by Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioner, and a full size the Balm Hot Ticket nail polish. There are post cards that describe each product and tell their full size prices, discount codes are also included.

How the bag came

The Envelope: Sooooo Cute 

I’m really excited to review these products individually but until then here’s some information about the products and my first impressions:
Freeman Peel-Off Mask is 6 floz (wow) and has no acne fighting acids/chemicals. It has a true cucumber smell, not one that has been artificially made sweeter. It literally smells like a fresh cut cucumber. Very refreshing! After the product has dried (~10 minutes) you peel off all the nastiness; sounds interesting. I’m usually that person that finds something that works for their face and only change when that product no longer works, and since I don’t have a mask in my stash right now this came at the perfect time.

SheerCover Duo Concealer is .10oz. which is not a lot but definitely enough to get about a month of use if you use it daily. The concealer comes with two colors for custom mixing. It is a very soft concealer, in fact I made a nasty gash in one side by simply pressing too hard. MyGlam sent everyone the color light/medium. When I first looked at this product I said “utt-o what am I gonna do with this too light concealer”. Well after swatching just the “dark” side, I realized I could possibly use this as an undereye concealer.

Wen by Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioner is 2 floz. and I am super ecstatic to use this product. If you are a Bravo TV fan, like me,  then you will remember Chaz Dean from Flipping Out . Well his new product line is marketed as a Cleansing Conditioner. It’s basically a 2-in-1 that is formulated without sulfates and detergents. It is very thick and smells like the peppermint candies my Gran carries in her purse. It does not lather, rather you apply the product to your hair let it sit for five minutes and rinse out all the impurities. I really hope this works for mid-week quick washing.

the Balm Hot Ticket fingernail polish is .5 floz and came in the color “Girls Just Wanna Have Plum”. It is a dark purple color with silver shimmer. Now I have been on a cream formula nail polish binge for a while and purple is my LEAST favorite color of the rainbow but I am willing to give this polish a fair shot.

Overall I’m pretty content with the contents of this bag. Now if they all work well for me I will have to say $10 well spent. These bags tend to sell out quick and registration opens around the 18 of every month. They also have a facebook page that allows for swapping between members.
