Review: Bag Of Love Debut Box, March Edition

Fabulous Finds Beauty Box, Wonderbox, MIVVA, The Lilac Box, Vanity Trove, and the list gets longer as days go by! The trend of getting a delicate beauty box among ladies is a hit now. 

Latest in March is the emergence of a beauty bag, instead of a box. Named the Bag of Love, founded by a beauty editor, it captures my heart after revealing the 5 branded items found in the debut bag:

The moment I see the brand Guerlain in the list, I know I must buy this beauty bag! GUERLAIN is my favourite high-end brand from Paris ♥♥  Plus, knowing that Definite and Kanebo will be in the bag too, I am confident that the debut Bag of Love will not disappoint me :)

The bag just arrived at my doorstep, and I can't wait to unwrap it! It's my first time receiving a parcel  from AirPak courier service, I'm extremely satisfied for their quick service and special care of handling as my lovely pink box remains in shape.

By the way, AirPak delivers passports too. High security.

Open the box, and here's the most exciting part about it: The Pretty Bag! 

It comes in vibrant pink and purple stripes, with a gold label specially made for the bag of love. 
I can feel the bag is overloaded with lots of love, look what I've spotted here: A Love Charm!

The first thing I notice in the bag is the lovely card from Bag of Love, 
which the other side has a full list of items inside the debut bag.

 As promised, Bag Of Love delivers 5 sample-sized items every month,
but... there is a bonus for this month's debut bag! One of the items actually comes in full size, 
which makes my heart leap for joy.

The products are nicely wrapped, to protect the velvety interior of the bag, as well as other products.
That's so thoughtful of them :) 

#1 Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire EDT (1ml) @ RM248 for 50ml

The first thing I look for is of course my favourite Guerlain perfume. The scent unveils a fresh and romantic floral lace embroidered with sparkling fruity notes. Light and lovely, I am in love with this product.

#2 Definite Face Blending Brush (Full Size) @ RM98

I am overjoyed to have this high-quality blending brush included in the bag. Make-up essentials and tools come hand-in-hand, don't they? For a natural finishing touch, sweep a loose powder over face with this brush.

#3 Murad Vitalic Energizing Pomegranate Cleanser (50ml) @ RM148 for 150ml

Use two pumps and gently massage foam over damp face, neck and chest. 
Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

Murad is one of the promising brands I'm using now, but the Vitalic Energizing Pomegranate Cleanser is something new for me. The cleanser smells good with its refreshing, fruity scent. Hope it soothes the skin well :)

Although I don't really like vouchers in beauty boxes, I am glad to have a RM30 gift voucher from Murad. It's definitely useful for me to repurchase some of my faves from them! 

#4 Revlon Professional Color Sublime Treatment (75ml) @ RM88 for 200ml

Best for color-treated hair, with anti-aging action and it prevents color fading. 
Coat hair from roots to tips after shampooing. Leave on for 5 minutes then rinse.

The detailed instruction is not found on the bottle itself! It's the lady behind the Bag of Love who includes it in the lovely card. By the way, this product is sold exclusively in hairdressing saloons, and I am glad to have my hands on it :)

#5 KANEBO Skin Fusing Powder Foundation (0.6g)
Actual Casing with Sponge @ RM60 ; Foundation Refill @ RM140 (10.5g)

Provides a natural coverage and ensures a shine-free appearance with its SPF20PA++ powder formula. Instead of staying as a thick layer of makeup, the foundation blends and melts into your skin when applied. This smoothens any uneven surface and gives you a dewy and radiant complexion!

It is exactly the same product I got from Vanity Trove March Beauty Box, so I am already using it and love the coverage. Here's another sample that lasts a little longer before I make my purchase.
#6 Complimentary Movie Pass for "The Host"

Oh ya, have I forgotten to mention that a movie pass is included in their debut box?
Sometimes I love beauty boxes to be spiced up with little surprises like this one :)

*waves* Who want to watch this movie with me? 


What I like about Bag of Love Debut Version:
  • Value for money! The total value in this month's Bag of Love is RM230++ but I'm only paying RM39.90 for it! 
  • Loaded with more cosmetics than beauty care products, because I love trying on cosmetics than skin care stuff.
  • Recyclable pretty pouch- I can use it for storing my mascaras and lipsticks. Or perhaps use it as a stationery case :P
  • Sample sized but bigger than usual! It really depends on the brand itself, but the sizes of samples for this month aren't as petite as I thought. 
  • Full-sized item. This is out of my expectation because the debut bag only promises 5 sample-sized item but now 1 of them is of full size. 

What I don't like about Bag of Love Debut Version: 
  • The box is rather soft and easily dented, I hope it can be something solid and useful.
  • Gift vouchers. Most of the time I find them kinda useless, but hopefully this time I can make use of my Murad RM30 discount voucher.
  • It makes me feels so guilty because I am going to subscribe for a year soon! *Money flies* Simply can't resist this awesome bag...
 Bag of Love helps women discover beauty.
