So its 26th May, and the Fab Bag finally gets delivered. Guess we’re just expected to get used to the fact that they’re making it a habit to deliver when the month is almost over. 😳
Anyhow, leaving all my sarcasm aside, I’m pleasantly surprised with the May Fab Bag. Looks like they actually realised that they’d been lowering their Bags lately. Although I still do have one problem, but I’ll get to that later. I can start with good stuff- so here it is. 😀
The theme of this month is Sun, Sand & Sexy & the Bag definitely lives it up. Even the quality seems better than the last one, so I certainly like the Bag.
As I peep inside the first thing that I notice is this big jar like product, which turns out to be Vana Vidhi Oriental Rice Paddy Luxurious Face & Body Scrub
Isn’t this great? I received a full-sized 70gms jar, which is priced at Rs. 1599. I used it a little on my hands, and the product seems to be quite good. I’m quite excited to use this one & it’s going right in my bathroom.
Next I took out the Be a Bombshell One Stick, which is again another full-sized product! Woah! This is pure awesomeness, even more as I ❤ the shade. It’s kind of like wearing a pretty shade, but not one which makes one look over the top. The pigmentation is quite impressive as well; look at that colour- deposited by just one swipe!
Moving ahead, next I received Vichy Ideal White Routine, comprising of Meta Whitening Essence & Meta Whitening Foam. These are sample sized products, but considering that these are from Vichy, I’m not complaining. Super excited to try these as well! ❤
Lastly, I received a Fab Bag Scarf, which is where I have a problem. I received a multi-striped scarf in shades of blue, which looks really pretty when you first see it. Wow! I can use it during the summer months & it can easily transform into a pretty bow on my bag during autumn. Plus there are like a million ways to use it on the beach! Sounds lovely, right?
Uhm, not exactly. When I looked closer, I realised that there are stains at a number of places, which is making me skeptical about its quality. That is not something that I expect from my subscription box, so that’s a serious letdown.
But if I ignore that little bump, I really liked the May Fab Bag! And of course, this Bag comes along with the monthly Fab Post, which talks about how to style the scarf & get beachy waves for your fun-time in the sun.
Oh, and now, as this inadvertently raises a comparison between subsccription boxes, so here’s where I had reviewed the May MSM Box. If you ask me, Fab Bag did a great job this time around, but I have been disappointed lately. Like the scarf has stains this time, last time the mineral foundation was old & scratched up. 😦
Somehow MSM Box’s packaging takes me to a different world & their selections potray that a lot of thought has gone into choosing the products & then subsequently packing them in a beautiful manner. So yea, presently I’m leaning towards MSM Box, but then I’ve only tried one Box till now, & Fab Bag can always come back as they’d started out- so you never know. 😕
What do you prefer? Do you know about any other subscription Boxes that I should check out?
