"What A Chic" – August fab bag 2016


Hello everyone,

Time for fab bag unboxing again. I initially thought that I would not order any subscription bags this time. But then I saw the unboxing videos of some youtubers and saw the products in and hence decided to go to this month’s fab bag.

The theme for August fab bag 2016 is “What a Chic”. To be frank, I don’t think they matched any of the products with the theme. However, the bag seems to be matching little bit with the theme. This time the bag is double colored. The black and purply pink combinations looks great. The polka dots gave an extra chicy look to it. Overall I loved the bag as usual. However the size of bag is little small. But apart from that, no complaints from the bag once again.

August fab bag 2016

The fab bag is available in 4 different subscription plans – monthly, quarterly and bi-yearly and yearly.

We have 5 products in August fab bag 2016. 4 of them are sample sized and 1 is full sized product.

  1. Geri G. Innocent Foundation

Price and Weight: Rs 2500 for 30 ml. This is full size product

Geri G innocent foundation

The team gave us chance to choose one product to be included in our august fab bag. I chose this Geri G. innocent foundation in the shade medium. It’s a water based formula, medium coverage, light weight and hydrating. This is what the product claims. It is meant for all skin types. I tried swatching it on the back of my hand. It blends smoothly. However I am not sure how is the coverage and all that stuff. Also, I never heard of this brand. Its made in Los Angeles, CA. Also, I would like to tell you guys that it has a plastic packaging and a pump too..

  1. Natural Bath & Body Gel Face Masque

Price and Weight: Rs 325 for 100 ml. The bag contains the deluxe sized sample of 50 ml.

Natural bath & Body face masque

I received grapefruit and vitamin C flavor. I don’t know if everybody received the same one. It’s a gel based face masque with aloe extract, Indian gooseberry extract, grapefruit oil etc. It smells sooo fresh and fruity. It has very little (non noticeable) granules also. I will definitely use this.

  1. Kronokare Anti Turm (Oil) Repairing Hair Oil

Price and Weight: Rs 2875 for 500 ml. This is a tiny little sample of 30 ml

Kronokare anti turm repairing hair oil

Kronokare is a natural/herbal/ayurvedic brand which makes amazing hair care and skin care products. I love using herbal/natural hair oils as my hair are quite frizzy and in this monsoon season I am having terrible hair fall. So anything and everything relate to hair care is welcomed.

  1. Karite Buerre Pure Shea Butter

Price and Weight: Rs 499 for 50 gm. The sample sized for 20 gm

PURE shea butter

I have no clue about this product. But the only thing that passes the test is fragrance. And it passed with flying colors. Again, it smells like some candy. It is thick consistency cream almost like the way coconut oil in winters is. Ok, agreed! That was quite bad comparison. But that was the only thing that came to my mind when I saw it. It is quite hydrating and non greasy.

  1. Livon Serum

Price and Weight: Rs 215 for 100 ml. I got 3 sachets costing Rs 5 each.

Livon serum

I am an all time fan of livon serums. I am looking forward to it. And I am grateful to the team that they send 3 sachets in the bag which can help make the decide better about the product.

Overall rating: I love the bag this time. I did not calculated the total cost as the foundation only costs Rs 2500 which is like 5 times the cost of bag. It’s a big Yehh for me this time. Here is the link if you wish to book yours!

I hope you liked this post and will catch you in my next.

Till then

    My August bag was completely opposite … i don’t know why they did this to me 🙁 … the products wr same as July fab bag, there was no OIL, NO MASK and Geri G lip shade was also different from what i selected. “What a Chick” was completely “Waste a Chick” for me, as if they just put the leftover things in my Bag. … I have written the same thing on there website.. but i think they never posted it as it was too negative… i have two months subscription
    left.. will never ever subscribe this Bag again.. :((
