Review : Vanity Trove Malaysia Beauty Box, Temptress March edition

This Vanity Trove beauty box have been lying on my desk for the past 3 weeks ever since I received them. I was really excited when I got hold of them but ...when I opened up the box and see what is falls short of my expectation!

This is my second time I received my box from Vanity Trove (check out the Feb review here) . 

There are a total of 7 products and 2 vouchers in March 2013 Vanity Trove Beauty Box Temptress edition , let's see the details
  1. Kanebo Lunasol Smoothing Makeup Base N - sachets    
  2. Kanebo Lunasol Skin Fusing Powder Foundation - sample size    
  3. Etre Belle Sensiplus Hydrasilk Day & Night Cream - sample size   
  4. Etre Belle Sensiplus Hydrasilk Gel Tonic - sample size    
  5. TT Orchid Extract Replenishing Mask
  6. Bio-essence Bird’s Nest Bio-energy Firm & Brighten Eye Cream x 2 tubes - sample size

A total of 4 different brands are included in this box , and this time around only have face products only compare with the Feb edition where there is a mix of hair, face and even body products! And I must said when I saw the content I was pretty disappointed especially when I found out some of them have got Asian Potions Hand and Body Lotion in their box and I have 2 tubes of the same items.

Let's see the products detail

 Love the image on the pamplet that comes together with the beauty box :) The pamplets state all the information regarding the products that were included in the beauty box.

Kanebo Lunasol Skin Fusing Powder Foundation (10.5 g) in OC02
RM 140 (casing sold separately at RM 60)
-Provides a shine-free appearances with SPF 20PA++ power formula, giving your skin a smoother and radiant complexion.

I did a review on this foundation 2 years ago and this still remain as my favourite foundation. Check out my review here . As much as I like this sample, unfortunately the foundation colour that provided in the box was too fair for me, I could use OC03 or OC04 only.... hence this would probably go wasted.

Lunasol Smoothing Makeup Base (30 g) - RM118
A makeup base with a light, moist texture that controls uneven skin surfaces and dullness. Smoothes areas of concern, such as visible pores, and leaves the skin silky smooth.
This is not something new to me because I have tried this many times because SA always gave this samples when I purchase lunasol foundation.

Sensiplus Hydrasilk Gel Tonic (140 ml), RM 138
Sensiplus Hydrasilk Day & Night Cream (50 ml), RM 188 
-Sensiplus Hydrasilk Gel Tonic works to soothe and moistures one’s delicate and irritated skin, while the day and night cream protects allergy-prone skin against environmental stressors and helps relieve itching and irritation of skin.
My first time to come across this brand... shall try them out maybe one day!
Bio-essence Bird’s Nest Bio-energy Firm & Brighten Eye Cream SPF 15 x 2 tubes
-Nourishes skin with Bio-energy Fluid & Bio-Bird’s Nest Extract. Lightens dark circles, firms & brightens eye contours, smoothens fine lines & wrinkles.

Hmmmm not a big fan of Bio Essence but nevertheless will try it. I just help to wonder why did Vanity Trove gave me 2 tubes of the same samples? The purpose of people subscribing beauty box is to get different samples to try out, hence having 2 same samples from the same brand defeats the purpose. Hope VT would not give 2 same samples anymore.
Timeless Truth Orchid Extract Replenishing Mask : RM10 (per piece)
Whitening, Brightening, Moisturizing, Anti-aging, Clarity, Prevents Dark Spots, Reduce Uneven Skin Tone  Comes withEar flaps also ensure that one does not miss out their neck area and to further increase firming effect.
First time coming across this brand, and would be trying out this soon. Heard good review from my fellow blogger friends! Available in MaskSlim outlets and TT Mask Facebook Store.
Received 2 vouchers in this Feb Vanity Trove Beauty Box. 

The TT Mask discount voucher entitle us for a 20% discount for next online purchase & Kanebo voucher for makeover or makeup lesson is valid for 3 months. 

As much as I love vouchers, I would prefer to have products to try as thats the whole purpose of the beauty box subscription.

Overall review : Like I said in my Feb review, this is one of the most expensive beauty box subscription in Malaysia (RM60/month  this month onwards is RM50/month   ) and definitely we are expecting something more than what we see in Temptress March edition box. I think the samples that are provided is inadequate and not properly distributed especially when some of us are getting some different stuffs. And of all things, I would think only the TT Mask & Sensiplus brands are new to me. I really hope the next box would be better. Well I had a sneak preview of it ...over in the FB.. and think it's better than Temptress edition box but I have yet to see it myself. 

Vanity Trove is available for subscription for RM50/month, to be delivered to your doorstep.

Oh I was told too, Vanity Trove is is doing a giveaway and the prize is Benefit Cosmetics Fake Up full-size product in your May trove if you subscribe for 3, 6 or 12 months before 14th May 2013. More info here

  1. This box doesn't look like its worth of RM50. Some of them looks like you can get from the product counter or through their Facebook page / website. Thank you for the review. At least I know which beauty box company have offers that's more value for my money


Let me know what you think! Thank you :)
