What’s In My October 2014 Fab Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 2nd November2014

Hello everyone!

My FabBag arrived yesterday which is quite late for prepaid customers! I am not happy with the late delivery, it throws the element of surprise right out the window when 100 other people post the pictures of what they received before you received yours.

Anyway, they had 2 varieties of bags this month, a shimmery blue one and a silver one. I got the silver one!

Fab13

This was a Diwali themed bag and I got mine well after Diwali!

Fab11

Lets start with what I received :

1. SeaSoul HD Finish CC Cream with SPF 20 – Light

Fab12

I am happy to try this product. The shade is a little dark for me but maybe I can make it work with a lighter powder on top. I have only swatched it on hand yet and it blends decently. Let’s see how it fairs on the face!

2. Just Herbs 6 Step Organic Skincare Kit 1

Fab15

This is the product I am most excited about. Since I have oily skin, it is hard to find a great moisturizer that won’t make me look greasy. I am usually not excited by skincare but this kit has so much to try and explore! I have already tried the Daily Beauty Gel and Suncreen Gel and I am really happy with them! They have a normal/dry version of this kit as well.

3. The Nature’s Co Rosemary Hibiscus Hair Mask

Fab14

I don’t have a lot to say about this product. I usually use deep conditioning hair masks in the shower and oils for massage. So, maybe something like this would be interesting to try. It comes in a powder form and I’m assuming you have to mix it with water or milk to form a runny paste and apply it on your hair and scalp.

Acuvue 2 – Week Trial Pack

Fab10

If you’re short sighted like this girl over here and you wear contacts, you know the struggle! You always wish your contacts felt more comfortable and soft. I usually wear colored lenses but when I wear clear ones, I wear Bausch and Lomb SoftLens. After 8 hours, my eyes get slightly dry and I want to take them off. I was really excited to try Acuvue Lenses. I wore these yesterday for about 6-7 hours and they felt like nothing in my eyes. They were soft and easy to wear. Next time I am in the market for new lenses, I am definitely getting Acuvue!

Here is what I got overall :

FabBagSeptember

This month’s bag was a bag of new discoveries for me! I would always prefer to receive more makeup like instead of the hair mask they could’ve sent a makeup item. I am excited to try the rest of my Just Herbs kit and the CC Cream on my face. The Acuvue lenses were a win for me!

Side Note – I was going through all my Fab Bags and I realized I have collected 14 over the months! Here is a picture :

What’s In My October 2013 Vellvette Box/Bag!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 25th October 2013

Hello everyone!

The Vellvette Bag is BLUE this month!

Image

Here is a peek inside :

Image

This month’s theme for the Vellvette Bag was KISS. ( Keep It Simple, Sexy)

Image

Here is what I got :

Image

1. VANTIV Moisturizing Shampoo + Refreshing Lemon Shower Gel 

Image

It feels like they put in an effort to personalize the bag this time. My hair is very dry and I am quite pleased to receive a moisturizing shampoo. My friend, who has normal hair, received an energizing version.

Image

This smells strongly of lemons, almost like the lemon hard candy we used to eat as children, which I personally find refreshing but it may not be everyone’s cup pf tea. However, I would’ve preferred to receive the Cool Water version like some of the other subscribers did!

Both these products are full size and cost Rs. 187/- and Rs. 214/- respectively.

2. Florelle Wet And Dry Blush – Marmorized

Image

Here is a closer look :

Quick swatches :

Image

It gives a beautiful sheen to the cheeks. I have only used it dry and was happy with the results. It is a plumy pink shade that is wonderful for the Autumn/Winter time. I like that it doesn’t have chunky glitter and can be worn easily during the day.

It is a full size product and costs Rs. 750/-

3. Brocato Actives Restorative Hair Infusion Serum

Image

I am excited to try this product as I have damaged hair after chemical treatments and coloring them for years!

This is a deluxe sample size product and costs Rs. 375/- for 7 ml. Full size is 25 ml and retails for Rs. 1275/-

I am satisfied with this month’s bag. The blush is beautifully pigmented unlike the eye shadows we received last month! The bag is personalized to my needs which is a pleasant relief.

My subscription expires this month so I also received a renewal offer to get 10% off when I book a new one. I am happy with this month’s box but I wonder when Vellvette will start sending products from brands like Dior, Clinique, Lush, Kerastase, Caudalie, Clarins, Shiseido, Lancome etc because it shows all these products on the website.  I am going to renew my subscription in the hopes of being sent products from luxury brands so I can try them out before spending a ton of money on them. This is what beauty subscription boxes are supposed to do. When I look at international beauty boxes like Ipsy and Birchbox, they provide 5-6 items per bag for $10 that are great value, I feel like Vellvette is probably not doing enough. Maybe, it needs more competition and we need more such beauty or fashion subscription services in India!

I also have a coupon to give any one of you Rs. 100/- off of your first bag. Please email me at queriesforaishwarya@gmail.com if you are interested. I will send it to the first person who emails me.
