Water Wipes Review

I got the chance to try out the Water Wipes for FREE by Influenster in exchange for my honest review. I have been interested in trying them out because of the advertisement and the ingredients. This is my experience with the wipes and information about them.

What is their claim?

WaterWipes have been carefully designed to be gentle on babies’ sensitive skin. They are the only wipes that contain absolutely no chemicals, just 99.9% water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract – a natural skin conditioner.

You can find more information about their wipes by going on their website.

Where can you find these wipes? To name a few…

Our Experience 

The number one thing I noticed the most about these wipes is how wet they are. I personally like that because our current wipes are not as moist as I prefer. Water Wipes clean his bottom more effectively and quicker. I do not have to use as many wipes to clean up a better diaper mess. They seem to clean his face and hands easier as well.

They are a slightly shorter wipe comparable to other brands we have tried, however I do not mind that.

These seem to help his rashes from teething and soothe them a lot better than our current wipes. So far Liam has not shown any negative reaction and the small travel pack I received is just the right size to test these out.

Conclusion: they are very moist, smaller yet cleans well, and has no scent for those who are sensitive.

Ipsy Subscription Review

I have been subscribed to Ipsy a few times now since they first started in 2011. If you like beauty subscriptions such as Birchbox, Glossy Box, Little Black bag, or many others then you will LOVE Ipsy. You receive many great products and brands, even companies many people haven’t tried or heard of. They have a variety of high end or drugstore products so if you fall in love with something, you don’t have to buy an expensive product. I believe Ispy has grown so much as a company and they truly strive for excellent customer service.

The History of Ipsy:

Ipsy was formally called MyGlam founded by Michelle Phan in 2011. I remember watching on Michelle’s Youtube when she announced the opening of the site and it was also when I received my first Myglam bag! Many other beauty gurus on Youtube joined as beauty advocates or stylists and showcase the website and the bags they get for each month. Beauty gurus such as Promise, Andrea, Jessica, and Bethany. Since then, there has been many faces of Ipsy.
There was a lot hype before it opened as well as a huge waiting list after the first subscribers signed up. I was apart of the first group! After some mishaps, they became one of the most popular beauty subscription service. You can read their about here.

The Benefits of Subscribing:

  • You take a quiz on their site to determine the types of products they will send you.
  • You can earn points by sharing your unique link. You are able to redeem a set amount of points for FREE products.
  • You try new products you have never tried before ranging from low end products to high end products that way you can discover brands or products you would want to purchase in the future.
  • Every month Ipsy has coupon codes or offers from the brands that were featured during that month, even if you were not sent that particular product!
  • Every month your products are in an adorable bag. Get ready to have a plethora of bags!
    • You can use them for storage, gifts, or your purse!
  • This is a great way to bring fun content to your readers by reviewing the bags each month.

The Website

The website has changed a few times and I feel this current setup is the easiest and simplest version to use. There are four tabs on the top labeled:
  1. Glam Bag
    • This tab is for inquiring about your glam bag of the month. It tells you the story behind that bag and its contents. You also have an option to review the items you received in exchange for points. Lastly, this will give you more details about the products you got.
  2. Offers
    • Ipsy Offers
      • “Score early access and sweet deals every week day @ 9 AM PT”

    • Brand Offers
      •  You get amazing deals from the brands that where in the bag that month. You get coupons codes to use on the brand’s site
  3. Points
    • You get to turn your points into bonus items in your glam bag for the month.
  4. Giveaways
    • I cannot explain how amazing Ipsy Giveaways are! So many in a month with AMAZING brands like Pixie by Petra, Eva NYC, IT Cosmetics, BeFine, and MORE. It is a huge loot!

Your Account

This is very easy to navigate and you can adjust your subscription and billing info. This is also where you can update your beauty preferences and take the test again. You can also edit your username, email, or password on this page.

Your Profile

This will showcase your photos you may have uploaded and your profile picture.

  • On the right will show any reviews you have posted.
  • On the left is your profile picture- your hair, skin, and eye color, and lastly how long you have been apart of Ipsy.

 

Customer Service

Everyone will have their own experiences and ALL brands have problems. That being said, throughout the years Ipsy has worked well with me if I ever had any problems. They are fairly quick to respond and even when it was my mistake, I was going to get sent another bag.

Past Bags from 2011-2017

Last Thoughts

I always come back to this subscription service! It is like that one mascara you always go back to after you ventured off to try something new.

Let Ipsy be your mascara!

mumsie Daily Facial Mosturizer Review

*  I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Influenster has done it again with sending me a product that I would love. This product not only has helped my dry skin, it has also protected it from the sun. 

My Thoughts and Details  on the Product

  • I love the fact it is available at my favorite store Target!
  • Affordable.
  • The texture is not too watery nor thick. It feels soft and smooth.
  • It gives my skin a nice soft glow. 
  • I have worn this for many hours in the sun and did not burn. *Take into consideration that everyone’s skin is different.*
  • I love that you only need to use a few dots to get the job done.
  • You can also use it all over not just your face. 
  • It is gentle on children!
  • I love that it smells like citrus.
  • The pump is perfect for mess free application. 
  • The pump is also great for avoiding over use.
