IPSY / January's Glam Bag

IPSY is starting off the year with a bang! I absolutely love this month's glam bag. They really are nailing my profile these past couple of months.
This month's theme was game face, getting active whether it's kick boxing or yoga. The bag is very sporty with blue mesh and neon pink and yellow. The zipper handle is so cute, it's a shoe lace!
As usual they include five items based on your quiz profile. However I got a bonus item because I've been accumulating IPSY points! Quick run through on how they work, always always make sure you review your items and share on social media. Also if someone uses your refer link (cough here) you earn 250 if they subscribe. They have a special page for you to redeem your points often times everyone is redeeming left and right so when they update the shop go go and redeem your points otherwise you'll luck out.
The six items included in this months glam bag were body balm, dry shampoo, eyeshadow, contour palette, eye liner, and boosting mist. (Disclosure: This review was not Sponsored by IPSY I paid for my glam bag and all opinions are mine)
CAKE BY CAKE BEAUTY
Heavy Cream Intensive Body Balm
This sweet-smelling lotion melts into your skin like butter on pancakes. It soothes, smoothes, and hydrates on the spot. Take that, dry winter skin! It smells oh so good without being over-the-top. They included subtle scented ingredients like aloe vera, coconut oil, shea butter, and green tea extract.
TARTE  (Bonus item from my IPSY points)
Rainforest of the Sea™ Marine Boosting Mist
This multipurpose setting spray primes, sets, hydrates, and refreshes skin. It locks down makeup for 12 hours, while smoothing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. This formula's vegan, hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested and sulfate free.
CITY COLOR COSMETICS
Contour Palette
It’s made up of pressed, fine powders that feel velvety-smooth and light on your skin. The contour, bronzer, and highlight shades are highly-pigmented. They can be used wet for an even more color payoff. The shimmery highlight shade captures light to give you an out-of-this-world glow. I don't contour but have considered trying it out. So this is the perfect little palette to play around with. 
ORIBE HAIR CARE
Gold Lust Dry Shampoo
Mom life can sometimes make it hard to wash your hair (no shame in that), this dry shampoo soothes your scalp while it’s absorbing oil. There’s no white powdery residue, so it works on all hair colors. The scent is so pleasant and makes you feel as though you've washed your hair. Also, thanks to something called “Fragrance-Retention Technology,” the fragrance will last all day long.
 CIATÉ LONDON
Fierce Flicks Liquid Eyeliner
The precise felt tip makes getting symmetrical cat eyes really easy. This is a long-wearing formula that also dries quickly and won’t smudge or transfer. The intense, inky black shade gives your eyes instant definition. I'm all for quick but precise cat eyes otherwise don't bother lol.

DIRTY LITTLE SECRET COSMETICS
Eyeshadow in Sangria
It’s highly-pigmented, long-lasting, and very buildable eyeshadow. Just simply swipe it allover your lids for a wash of color, or layer it on for a dramatic look that lasts all night. Sangria is a deep, plummy shade that makes any eye color look even more gorgeous.
Overall fun little glam bag and all items were a hit in my book. They also included a motivational card to fill in the blank. Think of it as your New Year's resolution, I wrote that I will conquer Mom Life, because it can be challenging. I'm pretty excited about the bonus item making it extra special. I'm really excited about the dry shampoo since it's my first time using it definitely will get a lot of use because I'm a momma and sometimes washing my hair is out of the question. I haven't been using liquid eyeliner in a while so I'm definitely bringing back the cat eyes look. Lastly, trying out contouring see what the whole hype is all about, lol. Hope this review has been helpful if you've been considering IPSY.

Keep Me Safe Organics / Skin Care Review

Hello darlings, today I have a beauty product review from Keep Me Safe Organics!

The company carries organic, toxic free beauty and skincare products. I believe that taking care of your face is important since it is the first thing everyone sees so make it a lasting impression. I'll be reviewing their skincare line, which are the facial cleanser, facial toner, facial moisturizer, serum, and rejuvenating glacier mud mask. (Disclosure, all products provided by Keep Me Safe OrganicsAll my opinions are mine and I'm keeping it 100%.)
In order to give you my honest opinion, I tested the products for three days and made a video documenting my results after using all the products. I will post the video below. Let's talk about my skin issues before using the products; I suffered from dry flaky skin, red blotchy patches on my cheeks and of course acne. I'll be reviewing each item and tell you a bit more about them.
