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.
I received my Fabbag on 4th May this month. The theme of this month’s Fabbag was ‘Beauty Trippin’ The bag I received had ‘Eat Sleep Travel Repeat’. I loved the bag. It is sturdy and a little bigger than the usual size. It is perfect to be carried while traveling.
This time there were 6 products. Let’s see them one by one:
Johara Pro Shine Nail Colour Maroon Magic (Full size 10ml) – Rs.250/- I haven’t tried the Johara Pro Shine Nail Colour range before. The packaging was nice and sturdy. This range is available in 13 shades of which I received the maroon magic. I personally prefer softer shades and this color wasn’t something I would have picked. But the good thing about this rage of nail paints is that it dries quickly. The paint applies smoothly on nails. I am definitely going to try a different shade from this range soon.
Inatur Olive Cleansing Milk (Full size)- Rs.225/- for 100ml- ‘Inatur’ is known for its organic and pure products. This cleansing milk is soap free and nourishes my sensitive skin. It is infused with contains olive, chamomile, Geranium oil, jojoba oil, honey and lavender. It removes the make up easily. Leaving behind a moisturized skin.
Soap Square Foot Soak (Deluxe size 79g)- Rs.400/- for 140g- The Soap Square Foot Soak is infused with crushed rose petals and rose oil. The organic Himalayan and Epsom salts are used. It is perfect for the summer heat and the smell relaxes the mind and the body.
Elize Premium Sanitary Pads (Rs.100 for 2 pads)- Elize is a premium sanitary napkin brand. Each napkin is packed in a ziplock that makes it easy for disposal. It has a bamboo charcoal strip that kills odor and has a soft cotton top to prevent any irritation. I also received a 10% off discount coupon for my future purchase.
Veet Ready to Use Wax Strips (Rs.99/- for 8 strips) – I haven’t used any cold wax strips before since I have a sensitive skin. Tested under dermatological conditions and accredited by the British Skin Foundation. This is with an aloe extract and is suitable for sensitive skin type too. I am yet to try this.
Esence Soft Touch Mousse Make-up 02 (Matt Beige) (Rs 499/- for 16g) – I received a damaged product which came as a shock to me. They claim to QC all the products before sending them across. I don’t know what happened this instance. The mousse was completely dry and unusable. I sent an image of the mousse with the Fab Bag team and they were prompt enough in assuring me a replacement within a week.
The total value of the bag is Rs 1573/- . The bag has more products than the previous bag and apart from a small glitch of the damaged product (that they have promised to replace) I am quite happy with the products I have received.
