Following the success of the September Fab Bag I was excitedly waiting for my October bag. The October Fab Bag has a special item wherein you can get to choose the makeup product you want. On booking my bag, I got an email from the Fab Bag team with a list of makeup products and I got to choose the one product I wanted. This months bag is a lovely red and maroon bag with a button closure. This is perfect for the festive season.

The October issue comes with 4 products.

- Nyassa Oceana Foaming Face Scrub – Rs. 900/- for 200 gms

Let’s have a brief review of the products.
Spa Ceylon Green Mint Cooling Foot Relief (50 gms)
I received sample of Spa Ceylon Foot Scrub. I was hoping to get the Spa Ceylon facemask, nonetheless I am happy. The scrub is creamish in colour and has a gritty texture perfect for use as a foot scrub. It smells strongly of mint. In fact the fragrance reminds me of Polo (the mint with the hole :D). The scrub comes with the goodness of lime peel, volcanic minerals, and virgin coconut. It claims to soften, lighten, soothe & relax the skin. I am quite sold on the fragrance itself and I am glad I got this product.

Nyassa Oceana Foaming Face Scrub (30 gms)
Nyassa Foaming Face Scrub is more like a cleanser with exfoliating bits. It has a very strong soap like fragrance, which I am not too fond off. This is an average product and I really wish I had got Nyassa Tiramisu body scrub instead.

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Lotion (50 ml)
This is my favorite product in the October 2015 Fab Bag. The body butter has a mild yellow colour and a strong cocoa fragrance. While I like the cocoa fragrance, I wish it were milder. I have been using this body butter for the last 3 days and I absolutely love it and I am definitely going to pick up the full size product. A great product for the colder days.

Fran Wilson MOODmatcher Lipstick Orange (Full size)
For the makeup item I chose Fran Wilson MOODmatcher lipstick in Orange. They had only a couple of makeup options to choose from and I really wish they had more items that we were spoiled for choice. MOODmatcher lipsticks are fun; they look different in the tube and on the lips they turn into a completely different colour. I am excited to try this out.

The October 2015 Fab Bag is a decent bag. I would say we are spoiled after their September Anniversary bag where we got 3 full sized products. The October Fab bag has only one full sized product – the MOODmatcher lipstick in my case. I liked that you could choose the makeup product you want, except I wish that there were more options to choose from.

Overall verdict: 4 / 5
