What’s In My August 2014 Fab Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Thursday, 21st August 2014

Hello everyone!

My Fab Bag arrived today and I was really looking forward to this month’s bag because they’d promised “natural” products. This is what the bag looks like :

Fab0

The bag is a snakeskin orange. These bags are so useful for travel and storing things.

The theme this month was “All Natural, All Fab”

Fab2

Here is what I received this month :

1. Kronokare Caribbean Ginger Shower Gel & Lotion

Fab5

I’m not thrilled about the ginger scent but the fact that these products don’t have parabens and other harsh chemicals intrigues me. The shower gel lathers up well and the lotion is moisturizing but not oily. I’ve lost count of how many shower gels and body lotions I’ve received from FabBag. The only one that I really enjoyed was by The Nature’s Co and it was a coconut scented one!

2. Nyassa Hand Cream – Alphonso

Fab6

This is what Mango Heaven must smell like! It is softening and the scent! Oh, the scent! It smells like mango sugar boiled candy. Who doesn’t love mangoes? I’m definitely keeping this in my handbag and I may get the full size once this finishes.

3. Palladio Herbal Mascara – Black

Fab3

I love the idea of having a brow and lash comb so handy. The mascara is not extremely volumizing but it is great for those “natural lashes” days. I’m glad I got a black version though!

4. BONUS : Nyx Eye/Eyebrow Pencil – 903 Bleu Roi

Fab4

This pencil is so creamy and doesn’t drag on the eyelids at all. I got a blue one so I’m definitely not using this on my brows. But, on the eyes it looks great. I’m very happy with this product.

So this is what I got overall :

Fab1

I’m happy with this month’s bag. I didn’t get any frosted lipstick nonsense or lip glosses that I’m not gonna use! Ginger shower gel and lotion aside, all the other products are amazing. This is one of the best FabBags they’ve sent out. I like that there was a mix of beauty and makeup products because most of us prefer to receive makeup.

What’s In My August 2013 Vellvette Box/Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 30th August 2013

Hello everyone!

I received my Vellvette Box Bag yesterday and here is what it looks like :

Image

I am glad they sent a pouch/bag instead of a big cardboard box. These bags are useful for storing things and come in handy for travel.

Here is a peek inside :

Image

This month’s theme for the Vellvette Box was “Ticket To Hollywood”

Image

I have been seeing “Bonus” products in many other blogger’s posts about this month’s Vellvette Box but I got only 3 products!

Image

However, the good part is that there are 2 full size products.

The first product is the Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Extreme Gloss in “Sheer Cherry”. I have been meaning to try this product and I was excited about this in my bag. I am glad it is full size.

Image

Many other bloggers got a clear version but I was glad to receive a beautiful color.

And NO, it does not plump up my lips. It doesn’t even feel tingly enough to be a lip plumper.

The Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker feels a lot tinglier than this. Read full review HERE

I would just call it a regular gloss. It smells like Cinnamon which is a little off putting because I don’t like the smell of Cinnamon. I do like the brush applicator though. I prefer brush applicators over doe foot applicators.

Image

The next product is another full size product.

Figs & Rouge 100% Organic Aloe & Mint Balm. This is a repeat product. I saw it in the February issue.

Image

I do like appreciate a full size balm. I am a lip balm hoarder and addict!

I do not like the smell of this. I can faintly smell mint and perhaps some Aloe. But, when I put it on my lips, I did feel the cooling sensation of mint and I could sense a whiff of mintyness.

I like that it is 100% Organic.

The last product is a disappointment! 😦 H2O Sea Results Deep Sleep Recovery Cream.

Image

I have seen some other bloggers getting a much better sample of this product range. Maybe even a deluxe sized sample would’ve been alright.

I wish Vellvette paid more attention to the customer’s needs. I do not really need anti-aging right now! Plus any skincare takes atleast 3 weeks to start showing results. So, I don’t care about itty-bitty samples of skin care.

However, this claims “Overnight Treatment” so I guess this would last 2-3 uses. I will give it to my mother to try out!

Overall, here is what I got :

Image

I will not say I am unhappy but I am not ecstatic either. I do like the gloss and the balm but that tiny sample of night cream didn’t do anything for me!

I’m hoping Vellvette steps up its game next month!
