Hey Ladies, we have a new beauty
box bag in town…. so put your hands together for the ‘Bag of Love’. Now the Bag of Love is the brainchild of Mimi Teh, a beauty writer turned entrepreneur who has put together a beauty bag that will feature 5 deluxe sized samples ranging from hair care to skin care, body care, make up, nails and fragrances which will be delivered to your doorstep monthly.
The Bag of Love is priced at RM39.90 per box per month, a quarterly subscription comes to RM 119.70 + you get a mystery gift and the annual subscription for 12 boxes comes to RM 478.80 + 1 free bag. Now for the first 50 annual subscribers, Bag of Love is giving away an Anna Sui Ring Rouge as an added extra. (Do check if it’s still in stock). So for those of you who are keen to find out more, head over to http://www.bag-of-love.com/index.html
Now Bag of Love is delivered via Airpak, the amazing thing about this collaboration is that the parcel arrived the very next day.
The actual bag was housed in a pretty pink & white striped box. The box was slightly dented but no harm done.
Upon removing the flap, you are greeted by a lovely magenta and black striped cosmetic pouch complete with delightful heart charm.
Ok, so lets take a look at what was in the debut Bag of Love…
- Revlon Professional Color Sublime Treatment, 75ml – RM 88/200ml (RM 33)
- Murad Vitalic Energizing Pomegranate Cleanser, 50ml – RM 148/150ml (RM 49)
- Lunasol Skin Fusing Powder Foundation, 0.6g – RM 140/10.5g (RM 8)
- Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire, EDT 1ml vial/ RM 248/50ml (RM 5)
- Definite Face Blending Brush (full size) – RM 98
Also included in the Bag of Love were
- A complimentary movie ticket to the Host
- RM 30 Murad voucher
Now I received the Definite Eye Brush – RM 68 instead of the Face Blending Brush because by the time I got back from abroad, Mimi was all out of the featured brush. In fact she was so accommodative she put together another bag for me with the substitute brush and even added on a few extra’s to make up the difference.
Now lets look at the value of the debut bag itself. I put the contents of the bag at RM 193, now this does not include the value of the movie ticket and Murad voucher. At 193, that’s close to 5 times the value of a monthly subscription of RM 39.90. For me that is excellent return on value. Moreover 2 of the samples very super deluxe sized and can last me a good 3-4 months at least and the Definite brush deserves a big Yay!!! Made of high-grade goats hair, yes ladies you heard me right, the brush blends powder effortlessly over the eyes for a smooth and professional finish..
Bag of Love’s April theme colour is Green, and I hear they will be featuring an eco-friendly bag with like-minded products. What’s even more exciting is that Bag of Love together with Delectable Treats by Su in collaboration with the Butterfly Project will be organizing an Unboxing of the April Bag of Love.
