Hey Wanders, it’s the dawn of monsoon, my favorite season. Everything seems so fresh and rejuvenated during this time of the year that the fresh vibe just transfers on to me. This month I received my June Fab Bag on the very first day. When I saw the theme of the bag as ‘Boho Chic’ I was very happy because I am in a very Bohemian phase right now. J
The bag is beige in color because it is made out of jute, making it a very eco friendly choice. The bag is very sturdy and simple. Not one of my favorites from Fab Bag. I felt the bag needed a little more spunk maybe some little pattern or even a little tassel would have made it more Boho.
The bag contained four products from brands like Sugar cosmetics, Bio Bloom, APS Cosmetofood and Johara. Let’s see them one by one.
Sugar Lash Mob Limitless Mascara – 01 Rs 699 (Full Size) – I have tried Sugar cosmetics’ nail paints, compact and a lip gloss. I quite liked these products and was pretty excited to try the mascara from them. This mascara is enriched with vitamins and anti oxidants that claim to enhance the growth of the lashes. For me this mascara doesn’t add much volume to the lashes. I found it to be a bit dry and clumpy. I don’t use mascara on daily basis. When I do it is for an occasion where I need dramatic lashes and volume which the Sugar mascara fails to offer. Honestly, there are better mascaras available in other brands in a similar price bracket.
Bio Bloom Foot Cream (Eucalyptus) – Rs 335 for 50 gm sample- Extreme heat in summer and dampness in monsoon tend to damage the skin on the foot. Hence a sunscreen and nourishing foot cream are very important to maintain healthy feet. I received a deluxe sized sample of Bio Bloom Foot Cream. It contains shea butter and other ingredients which moisturize the skin. The smell is very refreshing. I quite like this product and use it every night.
APS Cosmetofood Activated Organic Spring Water: Rs 270 for 50 ml- This is a new brand and a new product category for me. I usually use cleansing milk and a face wash after to get rid of the makeup. This product is basically organic spring water that enriches the skin after removing the makeup. No face wash is required after using this. It comes quite handy while travelling.
Johara Crème Rich Lip Color Sunny Squash – Rs 395 (Full size) – Johara is a brand that uses the handpicked botanical time tested ingredients and creates a product that is pure and real. The shade of the Johara Crème Rich Lip Color was up for choice and I went ahead with the shade ‘Sunny Squash’. It is coral orange in shade and is enriched with Ricin oil and vitamin E which offers the lips hydration and nourishment. The longevity of this lipstick is average. This range of lipsticks is available is 12 shades.
The total value of the bag is around Rs 1699/-. You can buy it here.
The ‘Spring- Fling’ Fab Bag April 17 arrived at the beginning of the month and the bag did look very spring summery. It is a pretty floral patterned bag. There were six options in the bag and I received the one with gold and purple. It looks quite vintage and is quite durable.
I received four products in this bag, one full size and three sample sized products. Let’s take a look at each one individually:
SUGAR As Nude As It Gets SPF 15 Compact: 01 Latte (Light shade for Porcelain/Fair complexion) (Rs.699/-) FULL SIZE
Sugar is on a roll! They launched new lipsticks, new nail paints and now their new compact range is out in the market. The shade was for us to choose. I went for the shade 01 Latte. During summers it is very important to absorb oil and keep the make up in place for a longer duration. Additionally offering a sin protection also helps. This product takes care of a these needs. Besides this the product just blends into the skin making it look natural. The packing is quite sturdy and chic with a matte finish to it. I quite liked this product and will continue using it.
Ayorma Radiance Glow Deep Exfoliator (Rs. 499/- for 100 gm) SAMPLE
This exfoliator is cream based and contains walnut granules. I think it might be a little harsh on the face. If you use walnut based scrubs on face you can try this out. It does smell refreshing and is perfect for a travel kit. This might last for 6-8 usages.
Hedonista Fresh Face Scrub (Rs.1045/- for 105 gm) SAMPLE
This is a gel based scrub with coconut and strawberry seeds as key ingredients. It smells blissful. The scrub is gentle on the face and removes dead cells, giving a fresh glow to the skin. This is a perfect summer product and also apt for a travel kit. This might be good enough for 8-10 usages.
Sand for Soapoholics Heavenly Dew Bathing Bar (Rs 275/- for 100gms) SAMPLE
Just look how pretty this bar looks! It’s so cool and refreshing. The bar is gel based and has chunks of coconut exuding soothing coconut smell. I love the Marker’s and Spencer’s Coconut and White Orchid shower gel. This bar comes quite close to it.
Over all the ‘Spring- Fling’ Fab Bag April 17’ contains all the products that are apt for summer. But they could have included one more sample product or given a full sized product.
