If this is your first time being introduced to The Look Bag, you are in for a pleasant surprise and I am excited to show it off to you today. Here are more details on what the look bag is exactly below.

This months The Look Bag has tons of skincare items…some I am excited about and some I am a little sketched out by. But you never know before you try, and you should not buy before you try…so this is a great way to discover what’s new in the world of beauty. I must say, I am kind of shocked, and I think you will be too.

 


Now, I am going to pretend for a moment that I am really cool and got invited to this event, but I am guessing everyone else did too? So sad for me though, I will not be able to attend due to my crazy schedule here amongst other thing’s going on in my life as of right now. Bummer. Anyways- lets get started unwrapping this box!

 


Yes I have a pink bathrobe and really am getting ready to go to bed.

 

What Is This: “GLAMGLOW Mud Mask activates moisturizing ‘collagen synthesis’, revitalizing complexion for illuminating, brighter radiant skin. Penetrates and softens wrinkles and fine lines leaving the skin smooth, supple, Glamorous and Glowing. GLAMGLOW helps correct discoloration and improve skin’s texture.” -GlamGlow

My Thoughts: Apparently this little magical tube won a Neiman Marcus beauty award for 2012 which to me, say a lot. I personally fell in love with this mask, and truly it does leave your skin glowing, smooth and soft. I will say that you need to make sure to moisturize after because you do feel a bit tight and dry. I love the granules when you apply it and take if off, it just makes it that much of a more effective mask.

Price: $69.00

What Is This: Kelly Teagarden’s Anti Aging Facial Cleanser in a gel form that has “rejuvenating blend of Organic Aloe Vera Juice, Fruit Extracts, Antioxidants plus Organic Avocado, Coconut and Argan Oil.”

My Thoughts: First off, this is a huge sample that will be great for traveling with..excited to pack it with me when I go to Cali. and Hawaii soon. As far as the product goes, it did a great job of cleansing and had a nice fresh smell to it. Also, a little goes a long way with this product, it suds up nicely on the skin without making your skin feel stripped.  In addition to all of this goodness…aren’t we happy it’s Organic?

Price: $45.00

What Is This: Seriously…what is this? It’s the Frownies Facial Patches! “Without any harsh chemicals or needles FROWNIES Facial Patches assist in to improve the appearance mechanically. Lasting results that continue to improve will be seen with regular use. FROWNIES’ (FBE) Facial Patches addresses the physical cause of facial wrinkles between the eyes (sometimes called elevens) and forehead wrinkles. By holding the crease flat and relaxed while you sleep the body can reverse muscle memory. The muscles of the face cannot move under the patch, keeping you from frowning or expressing while you sleep.” -Frownies

My Thoughts: Well, I remember my mom telling me that she wore tape around her wrinkles at night so that it would keep her from getting more. This is the exact same idea but with a much sturdier tool! I completely get the concept, but I am a Botox user for around my forehead area…although I am prego now, so maybe I should use these in the mean time? Putting these on was a breeze, taking them off was easy too but it did feel like I was taking off a bandage a bit. Also- it says you should try and wear these to sleep, I honestly can’t see that happening for me because I think it would feel uncomfortable, but that’s just me. Have you tried these before?

Price: $17.95 for 8-16 week supply. (I it works, it’s a much better price than Botox!)

 What Is This: Cattiva Cosmetics- Dolce Diva Lip Liner. “The nude-toned, paraben free, waterpoof and anti-aging lip liner is a revolutionary and long lasting product that will help your lip products to stay all day. Fortified with hyaluronic acid and filling spheres, lips will be smooth, voluptuous, and effort-free!” -Cattiva

My Thoughts: YAY! A full size lip liner!! Besides that glorious fact, I love when something is not just what it say’s it is. I like this lip liner because it’s not just a lip liner, it has so many other benefits for your lips too. When I applied it, it went on effortlessly, and had great staying power. I can only see one down fall to this,  it only comes in one color, so they definitely need more shades because I would buy more for sure.

Price: $20.00

 What Is This:  Dr. DC Placenta Wash Powder is a “Placenta face wash that is free of Chemical detergents and contains contains protein and amino acids that will brighten and diminish acne scars, and nourish, repair and rejuvenate your face. It also has Papain (pineapple) enzymes to exfoliate away dead skin cells, and tighten and tone your skin.”

My Thoughts: Okay, I am just going to say it like it is…I have had a baby and definitely saw my Placenta. So I FOR SURE KNOW that it is the LAST thing I want slathered on my face and potentially going into my mouth. Now, I know some women that make theirs into capsules and ingest them for health benefits…you couldn’t pay me to do that!  No, no, no, no and no thank you.

Now that I have gone on my rant, I did research the benefits and there really are tons. Even people like Jennifer Lopez swears by using placenta on the face as a daily skincare regimen. So, I did try it, I slathered it on my skin, and it smelled kind of peppermint-ish until is dissolved more and had a funky smell to it. I literally was almost gagging putting this on my face, but I got through it…I am alive and well and here to tell you that it actually made my skin feel and look really good. Would I go out, buy it, and put it on my skin tomorrow? Probably not, it’s just not my thing.

Price: $65.00

What Is This: Lady Strawberry Mirror Skin is a luxurious face soap. “With the combined power of the goat’s milk creamy fountain of youth and the exfoliating properties of oatmeal, this is the ultimate bar soap for skin care and protection. With vitamins A&E, it’s great for: wound healing, treating acne, reducing and preventing sun damage, and helping your skin look and feel healthier and younger.”

My Thoughts: Although this sample was more of a full size item, I am not super thrilled with bars of soap for the face as you all know. It’s not that this one is bad, it actually has some killer benefits to it and is really non-stripping. I think for me, I just prefer a tube or a pump dispensing my cleanser. I sound like such a snob.

Price: $4.95

 Overall Thoughts and Opinions:

This bag was definitely a mixed one with some great and very random pieces, but the two I loved the most was obviously the lip liner and then the GlamGlo Mud Mask. Like I said, the great part of getting these boxes is finding and trying new thing’s you never would have thought to. With any membership, some months you will be stoked about, and others will leave you not so thrilled. Overall, I have been really happy with what I have gotten in my Look Bag…minus the Placenta wash. Couldn’t they have called it something else anyways?

Overall Rating: I think I really like you (4 points)

    I got a few different things in my March look bag than you BUT I somehow got 2 look bags!! clerical mistake or not… I didn’t care. I sent’ the extra one onto my mom. I have to say I have had the BEST experience with this company. I tried the frownies on my scowel wrinkle between my eyes overnight (my one wrinkle on my face.. I’m 24) I actually can say that I really saw a difference. The wrinkle was really, totally gone by night 2. I agree though, couldn’t wear all those over night. I have to say this is a great alternative to surgical procedures. The lip liner wasn’t my color either but mom love it!

    • Maybe if I tried them for a few days I would see a difference- hard to tell after one try! So- what else did you get?

  • Gina Carpellotti

    Wow! What a nice package! I must need to update my LookBaf profile because I only got the Frownies. I did get the lovely eyeliner gel you rated last month, but I could have done without the sparkly shadows to blend with the liner. I’m with you on the placenta — and I’ve never had a child. 

    • you only got the frownies?? What else was in your bag?
