Ted Baker is a nice brand that produces stylish and chic bags and clothings for women. Some of their products are a bit of hit-and-miss but I do love their flowery print and lady-like designs. However, as you all know, Ted Baker do tend to price their products on the high scale, which means I don't really tend to buy their products much. This doesn't mean that I don't enjoy receiving Ted Baker products as presents. Therefore, I was really pleased to receive this Ted Baker wash bag and a shopper as a christmas present last Christmas from my aunt.
The wash bag I received is from the Ted Baker Normar range. The appearance is just like the picture shown above; the wash bag is spacious and decorated with a simple bow. The wash bag is made of synthetic PVC with a glossy finish. According to the manufacturer's description, the capacity of the wash bag is H11 x W18 x D10.5cm; personally, the dimensions are alright for a make up bag but comes off a little bit small for a wash bag. At the front, it has simple and elegant writing of 'Ted Baker London', and has a sweet two-tiered ruffled bow. The wash bag comes in a variety of colours: it comes in bright pink, glittery bronze and simple black colour combinations. The one I have is just like the one shown in the picture.
I've done some research and I found that these wash bags are retailed for around £22.00 plus possible delivery charges. However, I think they have discontinued this range; Ted Baker still brings out wash bags with similar designs made from the same material every year. So, similar wash bags are on sale and can be bought from various retailers such as John Lewis, Debenhams, House of Frasers and so on.
From my experience, this bag makes a very good make up bag for a short break/holiday. Due to the PVC material and the glossy finish, it is very easy to clean up the foundation spills and stray powders. Also, it is waterproof, which makes it very convenient to put it in the bathroom sink while I'm fixing my make up. However, I do find that the bag capacity is a bit small to be a proper wash bag. If i put all the necessary make up tubs and bottles, it just about fit all the elements I need from my foundation bottle to mascara, eye make up, brushes and highlighters. Therefore, I wouldn't be able to fit shampoos or conditioner bottles, even small size. This mean I tend to carry two bags, one for make up bag and another one for shower necessities/toiletries.
Overall, this is a very wash bag/ make up bag for a short trip. I wouldn't pay £22.00 for a wash bag because it is just simply expensive. However, receiving this as a gift is very nice and I do get a lot of use out of this bag. It would make a nice present for someone as well as a nice treat for yourself.
Thank you for reading and reviewing. :) x
