Kerastase Nutritive Oleo-Relax

This wasn’t included in the list and there are two sachet of 15ml or 0.51fl.oz each. Basically, this is a hair mask for dry and rebellious hair. I have not tried any of Kerastase products and I might give this a try.

This shampoo is meant for dry and rebellious hair, it suppose to soften the hair, make it silky and gives a control to the hair. This has a sweet refreshing fruity scent and almost felt like drinking it! It comes in a decent travel size amount of 30ml or 1 fl.oz. and looks really cute. The full size for this is 250ml for MYR 78.00.

Dove Beauty Nourishing Body Wash (right)

This is a full sized product which weighs at 200ml and retails for MYR 6.90. What this body wash does it that nourishes deep down to the skin with their unique blend of moisturisers. I’m not really a fan of body washes because I’m a true fan of papaya soap. Dove products are very well known for it nourishing and moisturising  properties which is great for dry skin.

Bag of Love May 2013 - Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cold Ultra Restorative Capsules

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules

I believe this is one of their most well-known anti-ageing serum and it comes in cute tiny capsules whereby you can just twist to open at the tab twice. There are 7 capsules in this sample and for the full size, there are 60 capsules for MYR 320.00.

Bag of Love May 2013 - Crabtree & Evelyn Somerset Meadow

Crabtree & Evelyn Somerset Meadow Hand Therapy

This is a full sized of 25grams and 0.9 oz.  retails at MYR30.00 and this is the first thing that I saw in the bag because it was placed at the top and its bright color. It has that refreshing potpurri scent. The cream texture is quite thick, little goes a long way and once blended it is not oily at all.

Bag of Love May 2013 - Amante

In the bag also includes this complimentary basic manicure worth MYR 38.00 from Amante Nail Spa and Body Care.

Bag of Love May 2013 - Vouchers

Also, Elizabeth Arden information slip of their Ceramide capsules and Calvin Klein promotional purchase voucher.

Bag of Love May 2013 - Crabtree & Evelyn Voucher, Lavender Body Lotion

Lastly, 20% off voucher from Crabtree and Evelyn plus a sample sachet of their Lavender Body lotion. I take that as a bonus.

Verdict?

I love most of the content from the bag except for the Dove Body Wash. Maybe because it can be easily found from Watsons, Guardian and supermarkets but its still a great steal because its full sized. The shipment was separated into two batches to be delivered and mine was the second batch, I only received it two days later which I think is slightly time consuming because usually I get my package the next day right after its delivered.

My Rating: 4.3/5
