April's Bag of Love

April's Bag of Love goes green in honour of Earth Month. Thought since it was about going green, I took the little pouch to the hill behind my house for a little photo session :D

This bag is made of bleach-free canvas and the little tag inside is made of recycled non-woven material. Though delicate, this bag is extremely heavy duty. The products for this month's bag are either of natural origins or contribute some way or another to the environment.

A total of 5 deluxe samples + 1 sachet + 1 voucher :3
From left to right

1. Phytojoba Intense Hydrating Shampoo (200ml for RM88)
Interesting enough, this is the first time I've seen a shampoo in an aluminium can. Phyto's products are all packed in aluminium or glass packaging to reduce the use of preservatives in its production. The mini bottle can be used to plant a seed or refill with your own skincare and bring along during your travels. Will most likely be giving my mum the bottle once I'm done using it hehe. Phyto is available at Robinsons The Gardens, Sephora and selected Sasa and Parksons Shopping Centre.

2. The Body Shop Quiet Night Dreamy Pillow & Body Mist (100ml for RM59)
Been wanting to get my hands on this when Body Shop first released the product. Don't know why I didn't get it haha. Just spray this on your pillow or anywhere on your body before sleep and you're in for a peaceful night. It has a special blend of relaxing ingredients from jujube date and Community Trade camomile which helps balance and soothe the mind. I haven't had a chance to try this out yet as I always hve a time that I have to wake up to... and I'm afraid that with this mist.... I might wake up late ;A;

3. Nuxe Brightening BB Cream SPF30/PA++ (30ml for RM120)
This is Nuxe's first BB cream . Formulated with white crocus, daisy, green tea flower, mallow, borage oils, and natural mineral pigments (silica), it works wonders to provide light coverage for the skin and at the same time, brighten, moisturise and soothe it. I'm not a big fan of BB cream as it makes my skin reaaaalllllyyyyyy oily and greasy but I'll give this a try I suppose.

4. Burt Bees Richly Replenishing Cocoa & Cupuaçu Butters Body Lotion (170ml for RM62.80)
I'm one who rarely uses body lotion because often I feel like wiping them off on the blankets XD;; This body lotion absorb quickly leaving the skin baby soft and smooth up to 24 hours. This product has the softening properties of cocoa and cupuaçub butters and nourishing botanical moisturisers from sunflower and olive oils.

5. Decleor Hydra Floral Moisturising Cream (50ml for RM271)
This refreshing moisturising cream provides an anti-pollution protection to the skin, while leaving it soft, relaxed and protected. With 85% of its ingredients derived from natural origins and with no parabens or mineral oils, your skin will exude beauty from within. I fell in love with Decleor products when I went for my first facial at Is'belle, Subang Parade. The facial session left my face super smooth for months! I'll definitely be using this product for special occasions (before shoots *coughs*) or when I'm travelling. Mi Mi has also included a facial voucher allowing Bag of Love members to enjoy Decleor's Signature Aromaplasty Facial at only RM98! (NP: RM230) Sadly I don't have the time to go enjoy the facial this month T_T. Such a pity to burn the offer :(

6. Definite Contour Brush (RM88)
Made of super-soft, high-grade goat hair, this brush blends powder effortlessly over the face for a smooth and professional finish. Just what I was looking for! :P It was the only thing missing from my brush collection hehe. Also FYI, Definite brushes are now exclusive to Bag of Love. They used to have 2 outlets in Sunway Pyramid but now you can't get it anywhere. Mi Mi has hinted that they have more Definite brushes coming soon so do subscribe to Bag of Love!

I love all the products but my favorites would go to the Definite brush and also The Body Shop mist. There's so much goodies stuffed in a tiny bag, I can't wait to see what the May bag would bring :D Speaking of May bags... Mi Mi has posted a hint for May's Bag of Love theme

May's bag is themed 'Best of Beauty' hence the luxurious looking bag *_* Some of the brands that will be in the bag are Crabtree & Evelyn, Calvin Klien, Elizabeth Arden and Keratase hohohohoho~ I'm so psyched!!! >w< Are you?


  1. crabtree... tempted.. but i think they close sale alry is it? i like their bags concept, just afraid that i'll collect up too many products that i am not using.. =x

    1. I'm afraid of that too XD but this is my first bag so I'm still ok for now haha

  2. Hi! I'm new here and from the Philippines :D May I know if this bag is like those beauty boxes?
