Bag Of Love: Must-Haves May 2013!Monday, June 10, 2013
Hello, gorgeous! Today's post is on the Bag of Love: May edition! I'm sorry this post is so late: I'm trying to fit everything into schedule because I have so many posts planned for you guys! If you guys don't know what Bag of Love is.. it is a subscription service that delivers 5 beauty treats to your doorstep every month for the price of RM39.90/bag. They deliver in cute bags instead of boxes.
But anyway, I was excited for this month's bag ever since Bag of Love posted a sneak peek of their bag on their Facebook. This is a gorgeous, gorgeous gold/cream bag that can be used as a pouch or even a clutch! It looks really glamorous. Not only that, this month's bag features some really luxurious brands!
As always, there is a welcome card. On the card, we see that Mi Mi is looking super glamorous and posh! There is a coupon code for the Calvin Klein Eternity For Men Perfume. There is also a card introducing Elizabeth Arden Capsules. Then, there is a coupon for 20% at Crabtree & Evelyn and lastly, a complimentary manicure at Amante!
Now lets check out the products in the bag!
1. Crabtree & Evelyn Somerset Meadow Hand Therapy (RM30)
This is my favourite item from the bag and it is a full-size! I love this because it is super duper moisturising and it smells heavenly! This smells so summery and fresh: it's a nice blend of floral with a hint of fruitiness. This is a thicker cream which really helps moisturise and keeps your hands from drying out (especially in air-conditioned rooms). I apply this before I go to bed every night and I have seen a noticeable improvement in my hands.
2. Calvin Klein Eternity (RM254 for 50ml), Eternity For Men (RM209 for 50ml)
These both come in vials that contain 1.2ml. To me, the both smell pretty similar with woody notes. The one for men just smells more masculine. This perfume is really not for me because I feel like the scent is too strong and I prefer my fruity scents.
3. Kerastase Bain Oleo-Relax Shampoo (RM78 for 250ml)
This is a 30ml bottle, great for travelling. I really am a fan of Kerastase products and this one is no different! Every shampoo I've tried from them has worked wonders on my thick, dry and damaged hair. This helps bring back the moisture, shine and smoothness. This doesn't smell bad (some of their products do :p) either. I love this product!
4. Dove Beauty Nourishing Body Wash (RM6.90)
I used to use Dove products a lot and have no idea why I stopped. After using this body wash, I think I'm gonna give the brand another shot. This smells so nice and warm and it helps moisturise my dry skin. As you can see above, it is also really affordable! Just overall, a great body wash that makes me feel so comfy! :p
5. Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules (RM320 for 60 capsules)
This contains 7 capsules. I have yet to try this.. I feel like it's just too expensive to use! It's like, "What if I like it too much and need to repurchase it?!". I've heard tons of good things about this though. My Mum absolutely loves this, she has purchased them before. When she saw it in her Bag of Love (yes, my Mum subscribes too!), she was so excited! Can't wait to try it out: cut off 5 years from my age and look 12 :p hahaha I joke.
Extra 1: Kerastase Oleo-Relax Hair Masque
This is amazing! I just recently coloured my hair and it has been super dry because of the bleach. This has helped so much in restoring the moisture in my hair. I LOVE hair masks/treatments! I have yet to try a mask/treatment that doesn't work though, LOL. This makes my hair silky smooth and flatteringly shiny :)
Extra 2: Crabtree & Evelyn Lavender Body Lotion
This smells incredible! I used this up in 2 uses. I used it before going to bed and it is amazing. The lavender scent helps me de-stress after a long day and relaxes me. I just simply love lavender scents! I'm not sure about the formula though, because it only gave me 2 uses.
Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow! I LOVED this bag. I love that they included luxurious brands that I could have never tried: Calvin Klein, Elizabeth Arden, etc. The products in this month's bag has also worked really well for me. I do hope that, in future bags, there will be more makeup products though.
This is Bag of Love's THIRD bag and they're still THAT awesome- still going strong!
