My Review :

I am disappointed with my first ever FAB BAG just like the November Vellvette Box. I had a tiny little hope that the December bag, the last bag of the month would surprise me but I was so wrong !

The black bag with neon stars looks stunning and will make a perfect makeup pouch for my handbag. 🙂 I got 3 products and a Bonus sample in my December FAB BAG. Like the Vellvette Bags, Fab Bag also provides a welcome and info cards with all the products. Below are the products I got in my December FAB BAG :

  • RUSK W8less Plus Shaping and Control Hairspray – Extra Strong Hold, 22.7 g – Rs. 1,275 for 250 g.
  • Origins Anti-ageing Cleanser, 7 ml – No info card
  • LA Splash Nail Splash ‘Blue-tastic’, Full Size – 500 for 10 ml.
  •  Bonus : Anna Andre Nail Enamel Remover, Full Size – Rs. 79 for 30 ml.

I am disappointed with my FAB BAG because, yet again, there is no customization. I think the Vellvette team had stopped listening to feedback and are determined to provide sample as per their wish. Even though I received two full size products in my FAB BAG, they’re not the one’s I would ever pick. LA Splash Nail Splash & Anna Andre Nail Enamel Remover are a waste as I wouldn’t use them. Origins Anti-ageing Cleanser is the only luxury sample in my Fab Bag. RUSK W8less Plus Shaping and Control Hairspray is probably the only sample I would use from my December FAB BAG.

Overall, Fab Bag is definitely not FAB for me. Even though I have seen super luxury brands on their website, I haven’t received any samples from them. The concept of a beauty bag is to try high end brands before spending big on them, isn’t it ? Brands like Anne Andre, MUA, LA Splash, Florelle, etc. definitely doesn’t meet my expectations from a beauty bag.

I had subscribed for 3 months subscription which ends next month. After being disappointed so many time, I wouldn’t subscribe to Fab Bag ever. You can subscribe to the Fab Bag Here.

  1. Ridiculous service. All are deaf and dumb in fab bag. I have not received the order its been a month

  2. It was my first fab bag, and I guess my last; there are SO MUCH BETTER SUBSCRIPTION BEAUTY BOXES and this FAB BAG, I regret. I had bought this for some indulgence for my upcoming nuptials and they ruin it ROYALLY. From all the posts over here, I feel they’ve sent ME THE LEFTOVERS OF FEBRUARY FAB BAG. how cheap and shameless of them!

    there is a questionnaire that they take from us and which I have clearly mentioned what kind of products suit the skin/ hair. None of the products does suit my skin/ hair.

    the bag is NOT UPTO their claimed STANDARD FOR MANY REASONS – It’s a shitty Fab Bag. I had to share my horrid experience with you guys, please bear with the rant!

    1) near expiry date products – easier way to finish off the supply; throw them in the dust bin, crew! Luxury is NOT vivel. I paid up for ‘luxury products as they claimed, and I am Duped. ROYALLY. I have had previously got blisters on my face Using Vivel and now, literally I pay to buy it, would i?

    2) Cetaphil- I can buy it from the drug store near my house (where is high-end in this?) Also, I dont have a sensitive skin, as clearly mentioned in the questionnaire, which they obviously DONT go through.

    3) Why does the conditioner smell like ammonia/ toilet cleaner? Why would I use such a product with a Repugnant SMELL? Would they guys USE SUCH PRODUCTS themselves?
    I guess they should Stop this if they cannot deliver what they promised. They tell me that they’d refund me after cutting 599 INR off the the first bag.
    WAS THE BAG WORTH 599 INR? I dont think so. It’s very easy to say apologies, but coming from humble backgrounds I guess i have been a little greedy in wishing for small luxuries. they ruined it royally for me, thanks for that. and I cannot believe they sent near expiration that products in return of my 1.5K INR! CHEATING ALERT!!!!!!!!!

    I am subscribing for My Envy Box and I feel I will get good value for my money. FAB BAG sucks and stinks like poo!
    (sorry for this rant over here, but trust me, I feel so awful for my money and expectations that I wish they burn down) Had to share my awful experience here, somewhere; which is why the rant!

    • Hey Gayatri, I totally understand where you are coming from. I have been disappointed with my Fab Bag again and again and finally gave up on them. I totally believe that the questionnaire is just for the sake of it and they never refer to the same while organizing bags. Products like Anna Andre nail polish remover, nyx, mua isn’t what I expect from a luxury subscription box. I am shocked to know they send Cetaphil and expired product this time around.

      I can only sympathise with you as I know there is no point escalating any issues to them as they give a deaf ear to our complaints and feedback. I love my ENVY BOX and I am sure you’ve made a right choice. 🙂

  3. Hina , I’m totally agree with you. My bag is same , Nail colour is so pathetic …I’ll never subscribe again once my subscription is ending next month ..btw which are other bags any idea?

  4. I received all nail care stuff and I’m also disappointed! 🙁

  5. I decided last month, I will not subscribe for these bags any more.. there are many other box which are far better from these..
