Review : What I think of Vanity Trove February 2013 edition

I first came to know about Vanity Trove from my blogger friend Cynthia who subscribed them in Singapore some time ago. And finally it hit our Malaysian shore! Well I was pretty excited to see how this would this is not my first beauty box subscription I came across.

I received mine about 2 weeks ago, just about when I was going back hometown to celebrate CNY. Vanity Trove was sent by Kangaroo courier service , a not very popular courier company in Malaysia but fortunately their HQ is really near my house ... so it was alright for me to do a pickup when I was not at home to received the box. The box came in good condition and wrapped nicely in courier plastic wrapper.

Want to know what is the beauty surprise I received?

Scroll down and read more!

It came in very good quality hard box. Unlike the usual open up box type, Vanity Trove's box is pull out drawer type. Definitely I am keeping the box to store my beauty stuffs :P

Jeng jeng jeng!
This is Vanity Trove February edition which comes with 8 sample products; a mix of hair, face and even body products!

Benefit POREfessional Balm 7.5ml
"Quickly minimize the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! Apply this silky, lightweight balm alone, under or over makeup. Translucent, oil-free formula complements all skintones and helps makeup stay put. Contains a Vitamin E derivative, known to protect skin from free radicals."
A brand that need no introduction anymore especially Benefit has been promoting this actively this month and prior to this I have received this samples a few time. I do love this because it does make my pores looking smaller and skin looking smoother. I am waiting to purchase this when time comes (i.e when I finished my stash)

Oriks Wild Ginseng Stemcell (Callus) Twister Essence 5ml
"Gentle,hydrating essence nourishes and silkens your skin with soft velvet textures.By including Detoxyl (butyrospermum parkii(shea buter)extract),eucalyptus Globulus leaf extract,Juniperus Communis Fruits Extract and Epilobium Angustifolum Leaf Extract, your sensitive skin can be protected and relieved from urban pollution.It also helps to tighten your enlarged pores to achieve natural healthy skin with swirled silicon polymers in this essence."
I haven't tried any Oriks products. I read this is a brand from Korea and focus using natural products as ingredients. This Oriks Wild Ginseng Stemcell (Callus) Twister Essence helps to tighten enlarged pores and I would be definitely interested to try this soon!

Oriks Wild Ginseng Stem Cell (Callus) Essence Twister BB Cream 2ml x 2
"containing Wild Ginseng Stem Cell (Callus) BB Cream and Essence in spiral twist shape,you can feel the vivid effect of essence.Displaying fluorescent and brightening skin tonne as it cover fine wrinkles and skin flaw with micro particles.Also powerful moisture mechnism recover the skin balance and plant stem cell which make the skin repaired and healty help to enforce the self ability of skin."
I not really a big of bb cream usually korean brand bb would bring me gray cast on my face. Hmm I haven't try this before, would definitely interested to try this.

Wella System Professional Colour Save Shampoo & Conditioner 30ml each
"Wella’s System Professional Color Save Shampoo ensures long-lasting colour brilliance. Contains polyquaternium, d-panthenol, beeswax, UV filters and olive leaf extract to ensure hair is nourished and protected with enhanced shine. The formula protects against colour fading and shifting and brings softness back to coloured hair."
I have received this sample a few times and I do like Wella SP colour save shampoo and definitely love having this especially when I have my hair coloured recently.. can bring for a short trip holiday!

B.liv off with those heads 3ml

Say goodbye to painful squeezing! This light cooling gel promises to remove stubborn blackheads and whiteheads painlessly in just 14 days of application and stop them from appearing ever again. It keeps excessive oil secretion under control and skin irritation will never rule again.
I came to know the brand b.liv in 2010 and I have tried few of their products before and quite like some of them. I have tried this b.liv off with those heads but could not really see much improvement because to start with I do not have a lot of blackheads. But my friends sweared by this products that it works wonder for them.

Di Palomo Tuscan Rose Hand & Body Lotion 25ml
"A rich, indulgent hand & body lotion blended with moisturising olive and sweet almond oils, known for their skin soothing properties. Apply all over the body, after a bath or shower to leave your skin soft, smooth & nourished."
Love to find this product is free from paraben and phthalate. Love the rosy scent! Will be chucking this into my handbag!

Two Merci Petits Milk Cream Chocolate

Since February is Valentine's month, Vanity Trove has included 2 sweet Merci Petits Cream Chocolate packed in this beautiful box to further sweeten our heart!

Vanity Trove subscription is available in Malaysia for RM60/month including free delivery. Next month, the theme is The Shower of Summer.

Different type of subscription available.

 How Vanity Trove beauty box subsciption works.

Overall I think this is the most expensive beauty box subscription price in Malaysia. Eventhough the main purpose of subscribing beauty box is to get samples to try out the products but I hope to see full size products in the future in the box considering the price. I am happy to come across Di Palomo Tuscan Rose Hand & Body Lotion and I am paying attention to this brand from now onwards. I would definitely hope to see different products in the coming box rather than receiving the same old products from other beauty box or magazines subscriptions..maybe an exclusive product sample for Vanity Trove subscibers?
