Waterproof, carbon black with WIDELASH™ lash enhancer. “The nib is the perfect shape and size to give you control. It gives you the precision to draw on the perfect cat eye. It pitch black and waterproof so it doesn’t move even on the waterline. I love that it enhances my lashes each time I use it.” Alexa Chung Intense single stroke waterproof carbon black colour.
IcanGWP Review: Alexa Chung fan? Eyeko Eye Do Liquid Liner gets my interest due to the brand’s award winning reputation, and I’m happy to report the curiosity paid off. I’m impressed with the carbon black pigment from Eyeko. While my favorite waterproof eyeliner has a glossy finish, this product is a matte finish. The sturdy tip is easy for those with shaky hands and is ideal for cat eyes! The only downside was that it can smudge a bit on humid days. Several people report that it dried up fast.
Full size $79
Get a youthful glow with this microdermabrasion solution. This formula contains aluminum oxide crystals, lactic acid, and soothing botanicals to polish away dead skin cells, provide a radiant, healthy look, and smooth skin’s texture. Watch as the appearance of fine lines, acne marks, and skin discolorations diminish for maximum results in minimal time.
Full size $7.70
An incredibly pigmented pressed powder shadow ideal for creating a range of gorgeous looks. Made with 80% pigment.
IcanGWP Review: As a makeup brand, Morphe is a standout for its eye shadow. For good reason, it’s a high performance pigment and a good value. This pigment is amazing. It is buttery soft and glides on smoothly. It’s easy to pick up on a brush and blend. There’s violet and white glitter particles on top of intense metallic brown/grey. It is almost see-through – so breathtaking and beautiful on my eyes. When I applied it wet it built up to a fierce metallic look. It almost doesn’t smudge – only minor fall out. If you’re looking for a MAC pigment alternative for statement eyes, Morphe pigment delivers! Morphe recommend to use wet for a high-shine look or dry for a diffused sparkly finish. It is not travel proof because I received it broken.
Full size $12.50 – $14.50
A lightweight, highly pigmented liquid lipstick offering fade resistant results in seconds.
IcanGWP Review: My Latte is so smooth, infused with fruit syrup and so gorgeous. This LA based iconic item from La Splash is a very good option for those looking for a matte non-drying lipstick. I love the beautiful muted nude rose color. It doesn’t come off at all after meals or when I bit my lip – love the lasting power. It’s pigment is so incredible and the formulas will fill all lip lines. It’s incredible that we can order this brand from Beauty Bay and get free shipping on $19 (pricier to order direct, go figure).
Full size $22
Hydrate skin while you sleep with this lightweight, oil-free night cream. Elastin, Collagen, and Hyaluronic Acid combine with the vitamins and minerals found in Bladderwrack Extract to nourish dehydrated skin. The result is smooth, dewy, younger-looking skin overnight.
IcanGWP Review: The light green gel is looking and smelling so apothecary. The guacamole-green cream is so rich and very nourishing. It’s very natural and earthy, loving it. It leaves my skin remarkably hydrated and smooth. If you have sensitive normal to oily skin you may consider rotating to a gentle and simpler night cream for spring or fall months. You may explore this mild product! It’s a nice, balanced, fragrance free formula that is simple, a joy to use and very approachable.
Full size £49.50

Tangle Angel Baby Angel is a cute hair brush keyring which effectively combats knots and tangles for silky smooth hair. An miniature angel has landed to smooth away your tangles and make your unruly hair much more manageable.
Tip: Baby Angel is also water-resistant, meaning even if you get caught out in the rain, your favourite haircare tool will remain intact and as efficient as ever.
IcanGWP Review: This tiny gold brush angel shape is cute. It’s perfect for sports bags, children’s hair, travel, and on-the-go detangling. I’d try it as a blow dry brush if it was bigger. This professional brush is so soft and not too dense. The ends of the bristles don’t have the little ball like some others. I have fine long hair and the brush is good for me. I think that thicker hair might want to find a brush with shorter bristles.
What is so special about this brush is that it contains antibacterial additives embedded in the plastic to make your brush ultra hygienic and safe to use. Plus, it’s anti static properties prevent flyaway hair leaving it smooth and silky. I like that the bristles are soft and can help massage my scalp. It’s great for an extra help to get the build-up out and get better, shinier hair.
Full size $14
For daily cleansing and light makeup removal, our thick and creamy cleanser contains mineral-rich, anti-inflammatory bits of seaweed for gentle exfoliation.
IcanGWP Review: The apothecary cleanser is ultra gentle and yet capable to remove my makeup effectively. This silky cream cleanser contains little soft pieces of seaweed. It’s a big twist that makes difference. The sea algae particles form a non-abrasive physical exfoliation. Much greener than micro plastics. It is not lathering – might take some time to get used to it. It is a whole new genius, non-drying, no-striping and soothing facial cleansing experience. So many sensitive skin reviewers highly recommend this product. The price is right too! This gem is awaiting you to discovery it.
Full size $36
An intensive weekly treatment to restore essential hydration and enhance hair’s resilience and strength.
Sigma Beauty Sigma Spa Express Brush Cleansing Mat Review (received in mini)
Full size $25
The Sigma Spa Express Brush Cleaning Mat is an innovative device featuring seven patented textures designed to wash both eye and face brushes. It includes suction cups on the backside to secure placement on flat surfaces and is uniquely designed to fit most sinks. Small, convenient and ready to travel.
IcanGWP Review: If you own a lot of handmade brushes and don’t want to run water through where the glue is so much, this little gadget is excellent. Instead of dipping your brush into the water, you can just gently swipe it through this mat. It’s tiny but perfect to try before you commit to a full size mat. I love that it’s firm and there are several design buds to clean distinct items. It’s easy and cut half of my time cleaning makeup brushes. It’s gentle. There’s was only one hair that fell out from my big cleansing of 10 brushes! I have fun with this mat and can achieve the goal of cleaning my makeup brush every 3 months! The average review of 423 people on Nordstrom is 4.9.
Full size $16
For dull, congested skin this lathering, deep cleanser has the exfoliating powers of glycolic acid to leave skin radiant and smooth. Formulated with herbal extracts for soothing benefits.
Full size $45
Alpha-H, pioneered the use of glycolic acids in skin care nearly 20 years ago. Free from commonly aggravating ingredients found in many cleansers – detergents, sulphates, parabens, artificial fragrances and colours – which can leave the skin tight, dry and sensitive. Instead this Daily Face & Body Wash combines natural active ingredients to effectively minimise acne bacteria and excess oil without stripping essential moisture making sure your skin is kept happy and clear!
IcanGWP Review: I’m particularly excited to try this Australian brand. This fragrance-free face wash is one of an iconic item from Alpha-H. The gel scent is fresh eucalyptus right off the tube. It warmed up my skin a little bit. It’s a non-lather formula. I like that it’s effective yet gentle to use. It leaves my skin soft, supple and refreshed.
Full size $25
Living proof amp² is a styling cream that can be applied to dry hair for instant volume, touchable texture and flexible hold that’s revivable for up to 48 hours.

Silky foundation that boasts a range of skincare benefits for a seamless finish. Designed to nourish the skin whilst diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, Absolute Cover Silk Peptide Foundation blends flawlessly over the complexion without leaving streaks or patches. The high-tech formula allows for buildable coverage that remains natural.
IcanGWP: I did not receive this sample and I want to try it.
Full size $18
Glycolic acid and grapefruit extract, both alpha-hydroxy acids, work together to exfoliate and refresh dry, clogged skin, while additional ingredients help minimize discoloration, soften the look of fine lines and reduce pore congestion that can make skin look tired and dull.
IcanGWP Review: This ultra-hydrating toner sinks into skin effortlessly, and leaves it exceedingly soft. Glycolic acid is listed as the third ingredient. It’s definitely contains a high amount of chemical exfoliators but it’s formulated so gently that I did not experience any stinging, burning, drying, redness or breakout.
Full size $18
A sponge and brush cleanser that’s free of dyes and skin irritants.
IcanGWP: This is my first sponge and brush cleanser sample I got. Normally I use baby shampoo. I tried it on a power foundation sponge, eyeshadow brush and eyeshadow (sponge) applicator – a lot for a tiny sample. The power foundation sponge and brush are nicely cleaned. It did not clean the eyeshadow applicator well. It might be designed to clean liquid or cream products? People think the smell is too strong and lingers. I think that it is okay for a brush but it is quite strong for a sponge. People prefer the solid version.
This is the easiest way to explore what’s hot and what I haven’t tried before. I have discovered so many discovery new treasures that are not available easily from US retailers. Out of the gimmicky goody bags that come and go, Beautybay has proven itself a strong player!
