What's In My FabBag: September 2016 Edition

Hi Everyone!

This month, I really did have to wait for my FabBag. I did get a mail from the crew informing me that the delay was due to the late delivery of the Sugar Mascara. But anyway, the Bag did arrive today, the last day of September. 

Was the wait worth it? Let's find out.....

This month's theme was 'Eye Feel Pretty'. The Bag itself is quite interesting. The  front of the bag, as you can see, accepts the fact that life is not always perfect...

However, on the reverse side it celebrates he perfection of eye lashes...... 

Product selection for this month: 

Ava Face and Body Scrub
Product price: INR 325/- for 100 ml
Sample Size in Bag: 80 ml (Almost Full Size!!)

This product was included in the bag since the the bonus accessory that I had selected, apparently did not fulfill quality standards of FabBag. I am not complaining!

Neemli Tulsi and Sandalwood Body Wrap
Product Price: INR 550/- for 75 gms
Sample Size in Bag: 25 gms

Neemli is quite a new kid on the block. I've been getting their samples quite regularly in both FabBag and My Envy Box. I'm looking forward to trying this product out.

SaND Deadly Face Mask
Product Price: INR 1180/- for 100 gms
Sample size on Bag: 10-15 gms (approx., the packaging doesn't say)

I'm quite fond of SaND products. They are free of preservatives and other nasties. I love the "deadly" name of the product. Its is named so because it contains Dead Sea Mud.

Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus All Smooth Foundation  with SPF 15 (03 VF-G) 
Product Price: Not mentioned
Sample Size in Bag: 1.5ml x 8 sachets

I like Clinique Foundations, however this particular product is meant for Very dry to dry combination skin. Now I have combination skin which is towards the oily side. So I'm going to try this only in winters, when my skin is drier...

Sugar Lash Mob Limitless Mascara(01 Black with a Bang)
Product Price: INR 699/- for 9ml
Sample Size in Bag: Full Size

This was my choice product for my Bag, which delayed its delivery. I chose it from among other Sugar Eye products, especially their kohls. Other choice products included eyeshadow palettes  from C.A.L Los Angeles and Be A Bombshell eye shadow crayons. I'm really looking forward to trying the mascara. Watch out for the review!

As an apology for the delay, SUGAR has sent a discount coupon for Flat INR 200/- off for the next purchase on Sugar's website. I'm definitely using it!

Overall Value: A bit over INR 1499/-, not a bad deal when you pay 599/- for the Bag

Verdict: Good product selection and goodwill building with the Sugar Gift Voucher!
