Bag of Love September – Travel theme!

27 Sep

Sometime in March this year, a friend of mine in the know asked me, “Have you heard of Bag of Love?”. I hadn’t, and decided to look it up. It was interesting, but I didn’t feel that I should splurge on another beauty box/bag. Fast forward 5 months, I realised how much I would have liked their debut and April bags. Anyway, it’s never too late.

For September, it’s a travel themed bag. The bag itself is a transparent, airmail envelope inspired one, which I already know what I want to use for.Image

The goodies! The welcome note and information card featured a very cute Mimi in a pilot’s uniform. I like all their illustrations! So for this month, a few lucky subscribers would find an extra item in their bag — A CK Euphoria 15ml miniature. Looking at the picture, you’d have concluded that I’m not one of them, but that’s all right. Let’s see what else we have:

Image

O’slee Rosehip Beauty Solution Advanced Formula III (60ml). What a nice size! I’ve never tried O’slee products, but I did use rosehip oil years ago because of its moisturising properties as well as effective treatment of scars and stretchmarks. Let’s see how this one fares. I already like the light rose scent.

Image

Swiss line Force Vitale Aqua Vitale Cream (10ml). Another brand I haven’t tried although I hear rave reviews about their products. Eager to try this one as well!

Image

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Shimmer Multi-Purpose Dry Oil (10ml). Yay! I’m using my dry oil sparingly and it’s such a nice surprise to try the shimmer version. For about a minute I was tipping the bottle over and over looking at the shimmery oil flowing down like liquid gold, and the tiny bubbles making a trail as they rise through the oil to the surface. Oooo.. well, enough of that.

Image

Calvin Klein Eternity Aqua Woman EDP (6ml). This rollerball is different from the usual vials we receive and a welcomed change. It looks really classy and much easier to handle. Popular scent too.

Image

RVB Skinlab Diego Dalla Palma Cell Detoxium Purifying Clay Mask (10ml). “Intensive care thanks to the presence of ventilated green clay with detoxifying and remineralizing action. Thanks to the presence of puri-enzyme, an enzyme complex with an exfoliating and moisturizing effect, it removes impurities in a few minutes and gently refines skin texture, restoring brightness, firmness and softness all in one.” I’m trying this today.

Olay Regenerist Serum (10ml).

And there you have it. It’s a good set of products to care for your skin whether your travels bring you to dry weather, sunny places or walking through crowded markets for street food.

Let’s look at the value:

1) O’slee Rosehip Beauty Solution Advanced Formula III – RM59.90/100ml |RM35.90/60ml

2) Swiss line Force Vitale Aqua Vitale Cream – RM368/50ml |RM73.60/10ml

3) Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Shimmer Multi-Purpose Dry Oil – RM198/100ml |RM19.80/10ml

4) Calvin Klein Eternity Aqua Woman EDP 6ml – RM49

5) RVB Skinlab Diego Dalla Palma Cell Detoxium Purifying Clay Mask – RM29.90

6) Olay Regenerist Serum – RM49.90/50ml |RM10/10ml

which brings the total value to RM218.20! How’s that for value? Do check out their website and Facebook page for updates and mini contests!

    Hi Serene, this is the first time I’ve come across your blog and the first post I’ve read about the BOL September bag and it’s a great review. I couldn’t resist a sneak peek before getting my bag!

    I especially like what you said at then end, that it’s a bag for all travels – “a good set of products to care for your skin whether your travels bring you to dry weather, sunny places or walking through crowded markets for street food”. It sums up the selection perfectly!
    I think I’m really going to like this bag.
