So sorry for being MIA since a while. Had a lot going on the personal front so just couldn’t manage the time. But am back and today with a review of my April Fab Bag which reached me on the 2nd of April.. I know, am super late ☹
I gotta be honest here, I am kinda losing my faith in the Fab Bag as a subscription service. Every month we get one star product and the same was this month too, but now that is usually the only product worth getting the bag for. Read on and you will know why I say so…
Firstly, this month’s bag was not impressive at all. A floral printed clutch format bag, the quality seems to be extremely poor and the design extremely jarring! The cloth bag was of this cheap synthetic material and not at all like the usual good quality. So Fab bag if you have changed your supplier, I think you should change back!
Now for what was inside my bag:
This month the bag was extremely tiny, with 4 products of which one was of choice, as usual. These products were:
- Manna Kadar Lip Locked Priming Lipstick
- Mond’Sub Crystal Collagen Mask
- Nirvaana Handmade Pure Aloe Vera Gel
- Bliscent Lip Scrub
Let’s talk about them one by one:
- Manna Kadar Lip Locked Priming Lipstick – Bliss
As usual this month had a product choice, and again this month was lipstick! There was a choice amongst Manna Kadar’s Lip Locked Priming Lipstick shades. But no surprises there, that the shades available were only reds & pinks! I know these are the more common shades but honestly for those who ain’t fond of them, it doesn’t impress. I have been stocking up on red shades which I have to end up giving away, and when it is the star product, usually the rest of the bag just isn’t worth the cost!
I see now there is also a choice amongst the NELF foundations, but again a limited choice of shade, more like a stock clearance.
I choice the shade “Bliss” and I have to admit that it is quite a pretty shade, but somehow pinks just don’t suit me.
Price: ₹1799 for 3.5gm
- Mond’Sub Crystal Collagen Mask – Gold Eye Mask
A common feature in beauty subscriptions, the Mond’Sub Collagen mask is a favorite. I have not used this variant of the eye mask, as this is only for the undereyes, but am sure will do its job well.
These masks moisturize well and hydrate the skin.
Price: ₹200 for 2 undereye patches
- Nirvaana Handmade Pure Aloe Vera Gel – Orange
A small tub of Aloe Vera Gel, I understand there are two variants available depending on your skin type. I received the Orange variant, which is meant for oily skin. It is perfect coz in summers I do need something to control the oil and I have been using aloe vera gel. A lesser known brand, this would be a good addition as a bonus product.
Price: ₹50 for a small tub.
- Bliscent Lip Scrub
The fourth product in the bag, I have used this before and it is quite a good quality product. Bliscent is an amazing brand and the product definitely is good. It is a fine sugar scrub with additives of essential oils and flavourings.
Price: ₹200 for 10gms
Last month too the products were not too appreciated except for the star product. And you get the product choice on a long-term subscription only. Considering the value of the other products, with the exception of the star product, nothing stands out. If you are ok with any shade of a Manna Kadar lipstick, only then would I recommend you subscribe this month. The product numbers and value of products were all disappointing, with the exception of the star product.
Was certainly not happy with this months bag, especially since that lipstick won’t be used by me!
Fab Bag, please step up your game… the competition is getting tougher and I can definitely find better options in the market for an even lesser price point now.
Let me know if you want a review on any specific product, and I will be happy to oblige.
