Bag Of Love (April) : The Green Bag

"Happy Unzipping The Green Bag Of Love !"

Last month, Bag Of Love had their very first unzipping tea party at Delectable Su, if you have missed it, you can read it here. Other than having the opportunity to try the Afternoon Tea Set from Delectable, every girls on that day which includes me, get to be among the very first to unzip The Green Bag Of Love too ! yeay !

Ever since Mimi posted the image of The Green Bag Of Love on facebook, I just couldnt get it off my mind because I was looking for a new bag to store my make up kit and the Green Bag is just the right size and the best part is, its a bleach-free canvas bag ! So even if I dirty the bag, I can put into the washing machine to clean it ! Isnt is great ? hahaha *super duper excited*

Okay but why is it a canvas bag in the month of April ?
In honour of Earth Month, Bag Of Love is going green. This bag that you are holding right now is made of bleach-free canvas and the little tag inside is of recycled non-woven material. Though delicate, the bag id extremely heavy-duty.
The products in this month's edition are either of natural origins or contribute some way or another to the environment. To find out how they are green and what they are doing to protect Mother Nature, please log on to, go to The Bag tab and read more about the brands from there. 
As I open the bag, I can see the huge brush in it !

Bag Of Love : Definite Contour Brush, Full-Size (RM 38)
Use on the face to apply, blend or contour powder products.

Yeay ! Bag Of Love is bringing back the Definite Contour Brush due to the overwhelming responds from the Debut Bag subscribers ! In the Debut Bag, the Definite Face Blending Brush was like the DABOMB ! Everyone just couldnt stop saying how beautiful, nice and soft the brush was after using, now I am pretty sure that the new brush they gonna talk about is the April's Definite Contour Brush.

The brush was so soft and smooth that I can define and contour my face without feel a single pokey feeling from the brush.

Bag Of Love : Burt's Bee Richly Replenishing Cocoa & Cupuacu Butters Body Lotion, 170ml (RM 62.80)
Apply liberally to body as needed.

I dont think I need to say much about this Burt's Bee lotion since the brand itself is well-known for their skin care products. Anyways this Burt's Bee lotion claims to nourish you skin with Royal Jelly, exfoliated with Jojoba Beads and Fruit Acid, and also to moistuirize with Safflower Seed Oloesomes. I will be trying it soon since my Crabtree & Evelyn lotion is finishing pretty soon.

Bag Of Love : Decleor Hydra Floral Moisturizing Cream, 50ml (RM 271)
Apply in the morning and evening to cleansed face and neck.

Mimi has met and interviewed Solange Dessinoulie, the founder of Decleor, in person when she was working in FEMALE Magazine to know more about Decleor. She was told that Decleor products can radiates your skin with a healthy glow and making it soft. Hence she strongly suggested us to try out the Decleor Signature Aromaplasty Facial even its RM 98, because she personally finds it very relaxing and you can feel an instant soft and radiant skin after the facial.

Bag Of Love : The Body Shop Quiet Night Dreamy Pillow & Body Mist, 100ml (RM 59)
Spray onto the body, pillow or sheets before bedtime.

The special encapsulation technology will ensure bursts of active fragrance will be released throughout the night, as the body moves, to aid more satisfying sleep. Special relaxing ingredients of jujube date and chamomile combine to balance and soothe and promote tranquil sleep.

I only sprayed The Body Shop Quiet Night Dreamy Pillow & Body Mist on my pillow and to my surprise it worked very well on me. I slept throughout the night soundly without any trouble or waking up in the middle of the night for toilet. hahaha  

Bag Of Love : Nuxe Brightening BB Cream SPF 30/PA++, 30ml (RM 120)
Dot a pea-sized amount on forehead, nose, chin and cheeks then blend the cream in gently.

If I am not mistaken Nuxe Brightening BB Cream is quite new in the family, they have just launched it last year end. It claims to adopt the flowers extracts and natural mineral pigments, this BB cream not only can adorn the skin tone, also can whiten and moisturize the skin. Despite of the SPF 30 PA++ which can protect the skin against UVA and UVB, the BB cream can easily make a natural and flawless nude makeup too !

Bag Of Love : Phytojoba Intense Hydration Brilliance Shampoo, 200ml (RM 88)
On wet hair, apply enough to create into a lather then rinse.

The Phytojoba Intense Hydration Brilliance Shampoo can nurture and soften distressed locks with this aromatic, coconut-based shampoo, formulated to cleanse while instantly re-hydrating hair with jojoba oil, and a unique concentration of cornflower and mallow extracts, making your hair coarse hair to silky soft.

Cant wait to finish my Nature Republic Treatment shampoo and try this ! haha

Is my Bag Of Love inspired nail art lovely ? haha (read more at here)
Verdict : Everything in the Green Bag of Love does match the Earthy theme, by having it made of natural origins like the flower essence, seeds oil and etc. Its great to know everything is natural so it can nourish and moisturize my skin in the most natural way.  However of all of the products, my favourite would still be the bleach-free canvas bag which I can re-use it for other purpose like turning it into a make up pouch ! Hahaha And how could I forget about the Full Size Definite brush which worth RM 88, has made every penny of yours worth in purchasing the April's Green Bag Of Love (RM 39.90 / month). Although there aint any other full size products, but I am happy enough to have the canvas bag which can be reused later on and also a full size Definite Contour Brush !
