Bag Of Love for March/ April 2014 - Stay Beautiful and Read On

Assalamualaikum and Hi lovelies, 

This is another late post coming from me, and it's none other than my BOL subscription for March & April. For those of you who are aware of this beauty subscription, BOL used to be a monthly subscription, but starting this year they'll only be sending out once every 2 months. So basically from 12 different bags a year, will only be getting 6 bags this year.

Am i disappointed? Of course i am, as i need my monthly dosage of beauty surprises *as if having a new bundle of joy doesn't excite me anymore... hahaha*. Anyway let's start rummaging in the bag shall we?

As you can see the BOL this month is more for the book lovers. Mimi decided to come up with this bag, so that all the beautiful bookworms get to keep their books in a proper bag without any damage. The bag is made out of a waterproof material, which is definitely ideal, plus if you kept it in your bag, you will definitely spot it immediately due to the color of the bag.

~Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo & Conditioner helps rebind and restore damaged hair proteins. Get up to 5X* smoother hair in just one wash.

The secret to healthy-looking hair starts with advanced care. Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo & Conditioner includes patented technologies to target dryness and damage found in hair. Smooth, strengthen, and help prevent split ends and breakage with Dove Intensive Repair.~

*I've tried this product, it was not oily at all as it dries up after a while. But i'm not too sure is it b'coz of my skin, after using it for 2 nights, my pimple's starts appearing so i stopped using it.*

* There was definitely a big hoo-ha when Sephora decided to make it available for the Malaysian market. And i was excited to get my hands on their products, but if there were sample's it would be even great. So i was really glad when Mimi had this in the bag. It was either this or Nuxe Nirvanesque Cream. But i'm happy i got this, i'm keeping it so that i can use it when i'm on holiday. ^_^

Mask of Love by UNICO (Full size -RM19.90)

~Mask of Love is a Soothing and Hydrating Bio-Cellulose Mask, Bio-cellulose masks are made of fermented plant fibres which adheres closely to the face and has superior ability to penetrate ingredients into the skin. It is also widely used in medical bandage owing to its cool down effect and excellent function on dressing change to wound.

Then it has the key ingredients of Phyto H.A (a plant derived alternative to Hyaluronic Acid which has excellent moisturising property), Cactus (a powerful antioxidant), Honey (antibacterial and soothing) and Lavender (calming)~

*Lastly but not the least is the curated Mask Of Love from BOL, collaborated with UNICO. Tried it the other day and i definitely love it. There are not many beauty companies that makes bio-cellulose mask *not that i know of*... so happen the first ones i've tried are from TT Mask, and i definitely love it to bits. As it fits the face nicely and due to the fact that i kept it in the fridge, it has the cooling effect. Conclusion is, my face felt soft and supple after using this mask, and i would definitely purchase it someday.*

That's all for now, if any of you are interested to purchase BOL you may find them at the following link:-

*Since the bag is only available once every 2 months, they only accept manual payments. For those who are interested to get their hands on the May/June bag, please do so immediately, as they will be sending out the bags on Tuesday (24/6/2014) *as mentioned in their FB page*. To confirm on the availability, i think it's best to PM them before hand.
