Hey y’all! Today’s post is on a product I got from my ipsy November 2016 Glam Bag. Here’s my thoughts on the ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Marine Cream.
What I love about this product? I like it a lot. I find the texture extremely pleasant to apply onto my skin. A lot of face creams and moisturizers feel greasy but this one doesn’t at all. The product is white in color and it absorbs quickly into my skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth. It comes in a squeeze tube with a twist cap. The scent is on the more unique side for a face cream to me. Without reading anything on the tube, it struck me as a kind of floral scent leaning on the perfume-y side. Reading the description of it as a “pro-collagen marine cream”, the scent does have a “marine” quality to me although perfume-y. It definitely doesn’t smell of fish or seaweed if that’s what you’re thinking. I don’t find it too strong once applied onto my face but sniffing it from the tube it came across as pretty strong. My face feels like it is well-hydrated throughout the day with just this on.
What I don’t like about this product? Nothing really except for the price. It’s up there even if it feels like it’s a really nice product.
More information on this product and others they carry can be found on their website here.
Okay, so it has been a quiet month for me here. I took time to just focus on my life outside of the blog and I’m finally back — refreshed and all. A few sales I took advantage of helped with that too. What did you guys get on Black Friday? I only did minimal online shopping for Christmas. In fact, I have a good amount already wrapped up! Haha! Anyway, before I let November slip away…here’s my post on the ipsy November 2016 Glam Bag.
The bag has a cute pattern and the material makes me think it’s neoprene or something like that. Not my favorite kind of material, but cute still. First item that caught my eye is the ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Marine Cream. I’m trying this out next week as I am running out of my current moisturizer. Next up is the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. I love mascaras. In fact, I have about 7 open ones currently. I just have to get myself to use them more these days. Next we have Absolute New York Matte Stick. The shade I got it in is Dark Red. I thought about keeping this but I already have a few red matte lip colors that I think my nieces would enjoy it more than I would. Then we have the Starlooks Cream Eye Shadow. The shade I got it in is Rose Gold. I honestly don’t care much for cream eye shadows so this will go in my bonus gifting pile. I’m sure one of my nieces would enjoy playing with it. Last up is Luxie Beauty Rose Gold Small Duo Fiber Brush. I don’t use makeup brushes that much and I already have a ton. Off this goes to the gifting pile! In all fairness though, the brush is super soft to the touch.
I took the test again to eliminate from getting makeup brushes but I’m still getting them about once every 2 months?! But I’ve read complaints on their quiz and how inaccurate it can be. Even so, I can’t wait to see what next month’s bag is like!
