Well, that example was just my way of expressing what I feel about the February 2014 Fabbag. Last I really liked all the products in my “Be My Vellvettine” Vellvette Bag (click for review). The Vellvette-reincarnated-into-Fabbag December and January bags have also been quite nice so you can understand how excited I was to see what was in the Feb bag. Unfortunately, my “Great Expectations” were kinda “Gone With The Wind”. Read on to know what I got in my smart, red tartan bag….
Cetaphil Cleansing and Moisturizing Lotion Kit
Cetaphil? That is quite a “been there, done that” product. I am not really excited about getting Cetaphil in the bag. My mum’s been using the cleanser since years so I’ll give these to her to put in her travel bag.
Tommy G Dual Lipstick in Passion Red
I hadn’t heard of this brand before but it’s always nice to check out new brands. Tommy G is apparently a big Greek brand and some bloggers have been raving about their products. I just wish that they would have sent me some other colour besides red. The MUA Lip Boom I got in my November Bag is red, the NYX lipstick in the Jan bag is red. What happened to the bright pinks, corals or even muted shades?
Nails Inc. Nail Lacquer
I got just the product card for this, no nail lacquer in my bag. I have emailed Fabbag about this and they said they will be dispatching the lacquer to me asap. Nice customer service 🙂
Vivel Cell Renew Fortify + Repair Kit
This was actually an opt-out product and I didn’t really want to try it out. I was in son’s school when I got that email and I thought I would send the reply once the meeting was over. But you know how that is. There are tons of other emails and this one got pushed right down and I forgot all about it. Will give the body lotion and hand cream a shot but I doubt I will let Vivel come close to my face.
There’s also a teeny tube of Thalgo Smoothing Brightening Fluid but I think it has been added by mistake as there’s no product card for it. Also, as a V-Day Bonus, they’ve given Cookie Man cookies. It’s a nice gesture but I personally don’t want cookies (or jam for that matter) in my “BEAUTY” bag. I’d have preferred a small sample vial of perfume instead.
So, maybe it’s just me and my high expectations but the Feb 2014 Fabbag didn’t really rock my boat. But I’m hopeful that the March bag will be better….
