Product Review - Ipsy lip balm and tanning oil

My new Ipsy bag will be here any day now so I need to take a moment to review two more products from the last bag.

The first one is the Pixi tinted brilliance balm in Pretty Pink.  This is a nice and light feeling product.  My lips don't feel sticky, greasy, or slimy.  The color is shear, and it smells and tastes, slightly minty.  This is a much pinker color than I would have picked out for myself but it doesn't look that bad.



This color won't become a normal color in my makeup drawer but it doesn't look bad at all.  I also like the feel of the product so I would definitely pick this up in a different color if I were to see it in the store.  It gets four stars from me.  I would buy it but I would pick a different color.

The next product is Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil.  

I don't tan so I can't tell you if it works for helping improve a tan.  However, I do have dry skin so I can tell you it works very well as a moisturizer.  Plus it smells good, I smell like a pina colada when I wear it.  This product says it is Oxybenzone free, Paraben free, Retinyl Palmitate free, synthetic fragrance free, non-greasy, and non-nano.

For those of you who are like me and wondered what the heck non-nano means I found a link that explains it here.  This product has no zinc or titanium oxide so this would be a non-nano product.  As for non-greasy, well, it is an oil so until it is absorbed it does feel a little greasy.  However, once it is absorbed the greasy feeling goes away.  This product also has an SPF of 8, and is made in the US.  This product gets three stars from me.  It is nice but not something I would ever buy for myself.

As a pasty girl, nano particles are the things I look for to be IN my skin products, so non-nano wouldn't be much of a selling point, but I suppose it makes sense for a tanning product. ;)
