Hey beautiful roses! Today’s blog post is on the Bag of Love April Earth Month edition so I decided to bring the photoshoot outdoors! I know this is way overdue but I’ve been so busy with my IGCSE exams and studying. I hope you guys understand 🙂 I actually really like how the pictures turned out, it looks very fresh with natural sunlight and everything. Tell me what you guys think 🙂 IGNORE MY NAILS!! I was testing out nail polishes before that.
This month’s bag is made of bleach-free canvas and the tag inside is made with recycled non-woven material. Even though it’s recycled, it doesn’t feel at all cheap. And can I just say? That the words “Little Beauty Bag” on the bag just draws me in: I LOVE IT! Go Bag of Love!
A coupon for a Decleor Facial at RM98 instead of the normal price, RM230. At the “Unzipping” Tea Party, Mi Mi (Owner of Bag of Love) told us that she loves the facial that Decleor offers: “It smells like someone’s baking in the kitchen when they put the wheat germ mask on you!” I’m actually thinking about getting it with my cousin (whom loved her Bag of Love).
Now lets see what’s in the bag! GET EXCITED!!
1. Definite Contour Brush (RM88)
In the first bag, they included a Definite Face Blending Brush and everyone loved it and wanted more. Bag of Love has listened: this brush is great for contouring, highlighting and applying blush. I love this for contouring just because it’s the perfect size to fit in the hollows of my cheek while doing the fishy face, LOL. It’s super soft and it blends the bronzer really nicely so you’re not left with a harsh brown line.
2. Phytojoba Intense Hydrating Shampoo (RM88 for 200ml)
This is a pretty big sample of 50ml. I’m not gonna lie, this does smell a little bit weird but it really does help hydrate my hair. I have very dry ends and they’re usually all tangly. It’s not like the most amazing shampoo or anything, but it does it’s job of hydrating. Not a bad product.
3. The Body Shop Quiet Night Dreamy Pillow & Body Mist (RM59 for 100ml)
This my favourite product from the bag! I LOVE IT! It contains jujube date extract, camomile and blended essential oils. This smells so amazing: it kinda smells like orange juice. I have already used up a lot of this.. I spray it on my body, my pillow, my bolsters, my blanket, my stuffed dog.. I pretty much spray it everywhere. It smells very relaxing.. Definitely a love!
4. Nuxe Brightening BB Cream SPF30/PA+++ (RM120 for 30ml)
What.. is this BB Cream made out of gold? I mean, RM120 for 30ml? This sample is really nice though, it’s 15ml. I have yet to try this because I still have so many BB Creams opened. I did swatch this on my hand and it seemed to fit my skintone well (as with most BB Creams) and it doesn’t leave a sticky feeling.
5. Decleor Hydra Floral Moisturising Cream (RM271 for 50ml)
This is a 15ml tube. I apply this every morning after cleansing my face and before putting on BB Cream. I love the smell and feel of this on my skin. If you apply just the right amount, it is not sticky and will not make you look oily. I’m typically not a floral-scent lover, but this one, to me smells really fresh and not too overpowering.
6. Burt’s Bees Richly Replenishing Cocoa & Cupuacu Butters Body Lotion (RM62.80 for 170ml)
This is a little 6.5g sample. I used this all up in one and a half uses (haha!) I ended up smelling half like this and half like raspberries. This smells incredible by the way! It kinda smells like cupcake batter.. Or maybe it’s just me.. Maybe I’m just crazy, LOL. The smell is nice, but it overpowers my Body Shop Sleep Spray!
I am really impressed with this month’s bag, as I was with last month’s. I love the whole Earth Month theme! I like that there are brands here that I’ve never tried before: Nuxe, Phyto & Burt’s Bees (what! i know right..). I love the variety of products, ranging from BB Cream to a brush to Pillow Mist. I love this month’s bag because most of the things I would never think to pick up but I absolutely love them (Pillow Mist)! The products definitely exceeded the bag’s price. I’m extremely happy with this month’s bag!

Shampoo: RM88 ÷ 200ml x 50ml = RM22
Pillow Mist: RM59 ÷ 100ml x 60ml = RM35.40

Moisturiser: RM271 ÷ 50ml x 15ml = RM81.30
