Review: Bag Of Love, April Edition: Mother Nature

This month's Bag of Love is rather special because it is celebrating the Month of Earth! The bag itself is made of bleach-free canvas. Don't belittle such simple bag, it is extremely durable! I actually prefer this canvas bag more than the March's debut bag. This is simple and clean, so beautiful!

 As promised, Bag Of Love delivers 5 sample-sized items every month, but... there is a bonus for this April bag! There are 6 items! Plus, one of the items actually comes in full size, which makes my heart leap for joy.

The following products are ranked from #1 as my most favourite to #6 as my least favourite.

#1 PHYTOJOBA Intense Hydrating Brilliance Shampoo (50ml) @ RM88 for 200ml

Nurture and soften distressed locks with this aromatic, coconut-based shampoo, formulated to cleanse while instantly rehydrating hair. On wet hair, apply enough to create lather then rinse. 

Shampoos hardly fancy me, but this time it tops my favourite list because of its aromatic scent of Jojoba oil, cornflower and mallow extract. It feels very gentle on my scalp, and my dry and coarse hair is moisturized upon applying it. Plus, it is packaged in an aluminium can. Simply natural and recyclable! 

#2 THE BODY SHOP Quiet Night Dreamy Pillow & Body Mist (60ml) @ RM59 for 100ml

Spray this quick-drying soothing mist onto your body, pillow or sheets before bedtime and the special encapsulation technology will ensure bursts of active fragrance will be released throughout the night, to  soothe and promote tranquil sleep.

I am not sure if it really aids a more satisfying sleep, because I can sleep like pig every day no matter how stressed or exhausted I am. Lol. But I'm so pleased with the scent-- it is deeply comforting with a refreshing, woody scent.

#3 DEFINITE Contour Brush (Full Size) @ RM88

From the face blending brush I got last month from Bag of Love's debut bag, I am overjoyed to add this high-quality contour brush into the collection this month! Make-up essentials and tools come hand-in-hand, don't they? For a natural finishing touch, use this to blend powder products. 

#4 NUXE Brightening BB Cream SPF30/PA+++ (15ml) @ RM120 for 30ml

A perfect combination of natural active ingredients and ultra-powerful flowers in an exclusive formula that instantly unifies the complexion, brightens skin and diminishes the appearance of dark spots. Dot a pea-sized amount on forehead, nose, chin and cheeks then blend gently.

I cannot emphasize more on how sunny Malaysia is! This BB cream definitely comes in handy for providing double actions by its brightening and UV-blocking features. It is more of watery base, so blending is easier than the cream type of BB cream. The coverage is good, as a light application is good to hide imperfections and brighten my complexion.

#5 DECLEOR Hydra Floral Moisturising Cream (15ml) @ RM271 for 50ml

Ideal for normal to dry skin due to its rich, creamy texture that leaves skin feeling soft and supple. Apply in the morning and evening to cleansed face and neck.

Unlike many moisturizing cream, this is surprisingly light and not sticky at all despite of its thick, highly-concentrated cream. Although products made of natural ingredients are normally less effective, this has proven me wrong because it is very effective in moisturizing the skin deeply.

#6 BURT'S BEES Richly Replenishing Cocoa & Cupuacu Butters Body Lotion (6.5ml) @ RM62.80 for 170ml

It leaves dry skin feeling soft, smooth and healthy, naturally. 
Suitable for dry skin. Apply liberally to body as needed. 

The white cream is not as thick as I'd thought, but the scent is rich and soothing to the skin. 
Also a great moisturizing lotion, and ideal if your budget is tight :)

#7 Discount Voucher: DECLEOR Signature Aromaplasty Facial @ RM98 instead of RM230

DECLEOR PARIS is located conveniently at Mid Valley, 
The Curve, Publika Gallery and 1 Utama shopping centres. 

Lastly, Bag Of Love would like to treat us loyal subscribers a multi-vitamin treatment with delicious 100% natural flax seeds, wheat germ and sunflower seeds. Sounds very nutritious to the skin! Must try!

Pssstt! Something sweet from Bag Of Love! I got these cute badges from Delectable by Su 
during the tea party of unboxing Bag of Love :) CUTE right? 


What I like about Bag of Love April Version:
  • Value for money! The total value in this month's Bag of Love is RM280+ but you're only paying RM39.90 for it! 
  • All-round beauty items, it has everything to pamper ourselves from head to toe! (Hair, Face, Body and even Soul!)
  • Recyclable pretty pouch- Save the Earth! Environment-friendly effort can be done by eliminating the fancy boxes/ gift wrappers/ ribbons :) Thumbs up! 
  • Sample sized but bigger than usual! The samples are almost half the size of the actual products, which means if you buy two bags you are actually getting some brands in full size!
  • Full-sized item. This is out of my expectation because the Definite brush is back in April's bag. I hope to have more in May, June and so on, so that I can have a full set of it! Don't you agree with me? :)

What I don't like about Bag of Love April Version: 
  • Gift vouchers. Most of the time I find them kinda useless, but this time I'd treat my Mum a aromaplasty facial treatment because it's Mother's Day! 
  • 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.
If you want to splurge on mid to high-end beauty products, Bag of Love is your best choice by far!
