November Bag of Love for Women on the Go

23 Nov

Hi y’all! The November Bag of Love is dedicated to the busy women of today. So it contains a little something to either save time, or take care of your skin and so on. If you have been following Bag of Love on their Facebook page, you’d have heard about the “extraordinariness” of the November bag. It would contain something that no other beauty bag/box in Malaysia has included so far. This was enough to drive fans to press the “Get the Bag” button (apart from the bag itself of course!). The only hint given on what this item would be is that it’s from the Panasonic Beauty line. We can only guess and wait till we get our bags to find out.

Well, I finally found out! First, the very cute Levi’s denim bag.

Taken with a big fluffy pink heart for Bag of Love.

The interior is a red and white checked pattern reminiscent of a picnic basket.

So the star is revealed! I had thought it would be the eyelash curler. We got the Doltz Battery-powered Toothbrush instead. This retails at RM99 and is single-handedly worth more than the subscription price. It reportedly vibrates at approximately 16,000 brush strokes per minute with the vibrations of a sound wave. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that it will give a more thorough brush than doing it manually for the same amount of time. Replacement brushes can be had at RM25 for a set of two.

Next up is Double Serum by Clarins. This serum “combines two powerful age-defying serums into one optimum balance to help fight all aspects of visible ageing. Now you can stay younger. Longer. The only intensive anti-ageing treatment rich in 20 plant extracts that revitalizes the skin’s 5 vital functions. A unique formula the promises a visibly youthful look: firmer skin, visibly reduced wrinkles, more even complexion and less visible pores.” This is a 7 day supply. I took the sachets out to count them and found this at the end:

Image

Oo. A generous extra gift should you like what you see and wish to explore further!

Image

Dove Hair Fall Rescue Shampoo (90ml) and Conditioner (80ml). Stress can cause hair fall as well so if that sounds like you, this set may just address your problem.

Image

Last but not least, Elizabeth Arden’s Red Door Aura EDT sample vial and a voucher for their Christmas Set. Interesting, feminine scent which smells floral and woody at the same time.

Family portrait!

Wicked Bag of Treats – Bag of Love October

12 Nov

I had quite a good experience with my first Bag of Love in September, and decided to continue my subscription in October. Mimi had put together a Halloween-themed bag for the month and when I saw that it would include an eye brush, I jumped in!

Image

Cute little drawstring bag with a jack-o’-lantern design. Shown here with the Collistar brochure.

Image

Mimi on her broomstick (did I say how much I love the style of illustration?) and a voucher for Jojoba Spa. I haven’t decided if I would go for it yet, but I have been to Jojoba and found the service to be attentive and professional.

Image

SP Repair Shampoo (30ml) and SP Repair Mask (30ml). Haircare is always welcome since it’s something I would use anyway. Haven’t tried this one as well.

Image

Collistar Biorevitalising Anti-cellulite Concentrate (30ml). Hmm.. I wouldn’t say I’m very bothered by cellulite because I don’t really scrutinise my thighs that much. Nevetheless, you never know right?

Image

Nanowhite Infinity CC Cream (full-size). Now this was a winner! It looks greyish when you first squeeze it out, but upon blending, the pigments are released and the colour blends into your skin tone. I really like this as it provides decent coverage and evens out my complexion. The UV protection isn’t bad either! It also works better than all the BB creams I have tried so far which somehow doesn’t match my skin tone very well.

Image

Yay, brush! I was hoping for an eyeshadow brush, but this is close. I received the Definite Eye Blender brush. I think this is one of the reasons Bag of Love’s many fans subscribe as Definite brushes are exclusive to Bag of Love, and for good reason too. They are good quality brushes.

Image

The other full-size item in the bag, Splassh glow-in-the-dark nail polish. I was hoping for blue, but pink is fine since it doesn’t really show up in daylight. True to the Halloween theme, this provides an added fun element in the already fun bag. I put it to the test immediately and went into the darkest room in my house and closed the door.

Image

Cool, right? Pic quality not great, but you get the idea.

Image

Once again, all in the family. Let’s take a look at value.

1) SP Repair Shampoo (RM72/250ml) | RM8.60/30ml

2) SP Repair Mask (RM109/200ml) | RM16.35/30ml

3) Collistar Biorevitalising Anti-cellulite Concentrate (RM185/200ml) | RM27.75/30ml

4) Nanowhite Infinity CC Cream (full-size) RM49.90

5) Definite Eye Blender brush (full-size) RM69

6) Splassh mini glow-in-the-dark nail polish (full-size) RM3.90

This brings the total value of the bag to RM175.50 excluding vouchers and the bag itself.

The November bag has been sold out and subscriptions are open for the December bag, which comes in a chic red clutch. If you’re looking for a gift for someone who would appreciate some really nice samples from some really nice brands, head on over to http://www.bag-of-love.com/

Till next time!

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.

Image

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!
