Fab Bag December 2018 - The Merry Indulgence Edition - Unboxing & Review (10% Off Coupon Code Inside)

Hello everyone,
Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Before I could realize the pace of the time, several months of the year 2018 flew away. And today, when I am ready to scribble my thoughts about another unboxing of the Fab Bag, it struck to my mind that this is the December month edition!

This month, I received my Fab Bag courier on the noon of December 01, 2018 and since I was out for the day with my friends, I came home to find the surprise package. First thing that I did, after changing into furry pyjamas, was to grab a pair of scissors and my favourite knife because those are my tools when it comes to unravelling parcels. I don’t like to struggle of going through numerous bubble wrappings and duct tape layers. Of course you can opt for a paper-cutter but I’m kinda lazy to look around for it. 😅😆

Without further adieu, let’s jump right into the post and see what all is inside in the Merry Indulgence December Fab Bag!

Makeup Selection Process:
In the month of December, there will be an assortment of 1 Makeup and 5 Beauty Essentials. The main makeup choice - DISGUISE Ultra-Comfortable Satin Matte Lipstick is available on all month's subscription plans on the first-come, first served basis. Within the makeup selection email, you will get to choose one lipstick shade from the available 10 variants. All you need to do is surf through that page, have a good look at the available shades, fill in your email address and voila, the lipstick gets added into your Fab Bag courier!


Products in October 2018 Fab Bag:
Going along with the theme of Christmas, the Merry Indulgence Fab Bag pouch comes in a beautiful maroon colour with matte PU leather finish and some white fur detailing near the zip closure. For me personally, in the first look itself, it casts a winter-holiday-season vibes owing to the colour as well as the products inside. Let's see what all is there inside.

Disguise Ultra Comfortable Satin Matte Lipstick Musician (Full Size: INR 500)

Company Claims: India's first 100% Vegan and Cruelty Free Lipstick! These ultra-comfortable lipsticks are enriched with shea butter, organic marula, avocado, argan and jojoba oils to keep dry and chapped lips at bay, this winter. Get the perfect and smoothest finish in just one swipe.

Amongst so many shades, I ended up falling for the shade ‘Musician’ which is a soft nude brown. Upon application, this shade can be described as ‘my lips but better’. It is a perfect everyday nude shade which can be worn to college or work. Coming to the texture and pigmentation of this lipstick, the lipstick glides onto the lips quite easily. It does not tug onto the lips and sits comfortably for a couple of hours until and unless you snack upon something or decide to have a meal. On the scale of satin matte, I’d say it is closer to the satin finish without the shine, thus, becoming an ideal companion on cold December days. With this lipstick, you can totally skip a layer of lip balm underneath. Lastly, the mint-green colour of the tube and magnetic closure of the lipstick bullet makes me happy in terms of attractive packaging. In short, I do like the lipstick and wouldn’t mind trying more products from the brand - Disguise


Global Beauty Secrets Turkish Watermelon & Argan Oil Day Cream (INR 120 for 10 ml)

In comparison with the brand Disguise, Global Beauty Secrets is an acquainted brand for me. Although, it is a new brand in the Indian market, I saw some of the bloggers/YouTubers doing reviews of their products. However, I wasn’t aware of the fact that they had day creams as well. I really liked the matte black travel-friendly packaging which can be tossed into your bag and you don’t need to worry about the product making your bag heavy. Coming to my personal experience with this cream, my skin generally reacts to a lot of cream-based products. For instance, a couple of weeks ago, I tried the Himalaya’s Youth Eternity Night Cream as it had amazing reviews. After two nights of application, I did observe a couple of breakouts and decided to keep it at the back of my vanity. Nonetheless, with a ten hour application of Global Beauty Secrets Turkish Watermelon & Argan Oil Day Cream, my skin fared perfectly without any irritation. Ultimately, I was super impressed by the fragrance of the product, its quick absorption into the skin, right amount of hydration catered to my skin and the instant glow it provided. All in all, I’m so amazed to have this sample that I wish we received a full-sized product of this day cream instead. 😄😄 


Best Seller: Spa Ceylon

Apparently, this is the bonus product in this month’s Fab Bag.

Yesterday, I was at the Body Shop store, picking out few products on occasion of my sister’s birthday. The price of the hand cream was kinda disappointing for me but now I’m glad I got one in the Fab Bag itself! 


Kronokare Pollu-Stop Face Mist (INR 495 for 30 ml)

Sometime ago, I had participated and won in the Kronokare giveaway which was organized by Fab Bag. During this time, I got to try out a lot of the Kronokare products amongst which I really liked their Frizz Kiss Lip Balm as well as Flower Power Face Toner. Moreover, in some other subscription box, I also received the Kronokare Pollu-Stop Face Mist which I have lying around in my vanity and I do use it once in a while because I have a handful of toners right now which I am trying to empty. This is a nice mist if you want to refresh yourself up during a tight work schedule.


Bliscent Hair Pack (Full Size: INR 300)

Thanks to the team of Fab Bag, I got to try out different products from the brand Bliscent. Currently, I am using their Pineapple lip scrub as well as Peppermint Foot Soak and I must say that I do like them. However, I am not really into powdered hair packs because their application requires a lot of effort. Still, receiving a full sized product from this brand makes me happy. Probably on days when I am a little open to experimenting, I’d give this a shot for sure. 


Flash Tampons (INR 35 for a pack of 3)

To be honest, I have never ever dared to use a tampon or menstrual cup because the idea of it and numerous stories revolving around the utilization of these products make me skeptical on their long term impacts. Also, reading the warning stated behind this Flash tampon box makes me skeptical on even unraveling the components inside. I’d probably gift it to someone who would be interested in using or giving it a try.

Please Note: To grab yourself a 10% off discount on 6 & 12 month subscription, use the Coupon Code: BHAWNA10 during your order. 

Total Worth of the Product: Nearly INR 1,500
Total Savings: Above INR 900

And with that, I can finally declare a wrap up! I hope this post was helpful for you.

MamaEarth: Shampoo + Conditioner Review | Happy Heads & No More Tangles

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
We all love our tresses! In order to sustain a healthy crown of hair, we keep on hunting for homemade DIY recipes or a shampoo that resolves the prolonged hair fall problem. Is it merely me who has been seeing a lot of hair fall since a year or two? I’ve altered my shampoo to figure out what is the actual cause for the same and it appears as if the inherent genes and my eating pattern is what causes a lot of shedding of hair. Recently, I tried the Mamaearth’s shampoo and conditioner duo which I believe was the part of their Anti-Hair Fall kit which is priced at INR 999. The kit intrigued me a lot and I’m glad I got to try out two products from that kit so that I don’t end up spending a thousand bucks. If you’re wondering how these products fared for me, stay tuned and keep on reading!

Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask - Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Apparently, there are lots on skincare brands which are available internationally and I’m yet to try them out. Some of these brands, enclosed within my wish list include The Body Shop, The Faces Shop, Clinique, etc. Thankfully, Nykaa was running an offer on The Faces Shop skincare range wherein you could grab a full-sized freebie product. While I was surfing the catalogue, I encountered the “self-heating” mask which kept me intrigued enough to add it to my cart. I kid you not, there have been times when I’ve legit done window shopping online as well! 😃😄 I see trillion of things and later I’m like – “Do I really need this?”
And the mind always answers – “Of course not, girl!” 😂
A lot of the times, I force myself to hear the sensible talk of my mind. But sometimes, the heart takes over and it springs in joy to say “Woah! That’s too pristine to be denied”. This is exactly how I ended up purchasing Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask

Fab Bag August 2018 "Own the Glam" Unboxing & Review

Surprise is the greatest gift which life can grant us.
Do you like surprises? I bet, you can’t say no to that.
Surprises are one of those quickest means of breaking the monotonous patterns of our lives. When I come back home from work, finding a courier onto my bedside table is what pumps up my excitement level. And this is exactly what happened on the evening of 31st of July. I kinda had a hunch that I’d receive my fab bag earlier this month, but getting it before the month actually starts, feels amazing! So without more jibber-jabber, let’s begin with the Fab BagAugust 2018unboxing.

Theme of the Month: Own the Glam When I think of the phrase “own the glam”, my mind draws an imagery of a glamorous girl. Therefore, I interlinked the theme with my expectations of having makeup products.
The Process of Product Selection: As expected, we have one of star products from the brand Sugar Cosmetics! 😍😍
Few days ago, I was sent a product selection email from the team of Fab Bag. Therein, a tota…
