Review : Bag of Love "Debut Bag" March Edition

I bet you have heard so much about beauty box subscriptions by now! 

 So what is NEW now in the season is Beauty Bag subscription! 

Bag of Love is the new kid on the block, gives 5 deluxe sample size beauty products in a bag (with different design every month!) every month at RM39.90!

Here I have Bag Of Love 'Debut Bag' March Edition, let's see what is inside and here is my full review!

I was lucky to received my Bag of Love by hand instead of by courier because I happened to met the founder Mimi over at an event! It is packed in a pink & white strip box, and that is so pretty! looked like Victoria Secret packaging

 Yay love how spacious is this pouch!  

I really like the bag (makeup pouch) concept compare the box concept because no matter how nice the box packaging are, it takes up spaces! Feel wasted to throw all these good quality box away and end up I used them to store my samples and I stacked all this boxes at one corner of my room!

Makeup pouch on the other hand is usable and is really a pretty even as a gift for ourselves or our friends! Now I am using this beautiful pink stripes bag as my daily makeup pouch and the quality of this bag is really good too!
Welcome note & information on the products.

 This is what is in Bag Of Love March Edition!

First time heard of this brand and found more info at Bag of Love's website here .

Stanley Wong and Josephine Mook, the husband-wife team behind the brand, conceptualized the ideas here with a team of international and professional makeup experts and have the products made in Italy. Also this brush is exclusive to Bag of Love and we can’t get it anywhere except through Bag of Love subscription!
Review : I really like this brush, was taken by suprise that the brush hair is really soft even though it is made from synthetic. I would definitely want to check out their other brushes and if they are on retail, that would be awesome! Now I just can't wait to see what brush will it be for the next Bag of Love!

I am not sure what to buy from Murad yet, will put this aside... 

Anyone got any suggestion what to get from Murad?

 This is the cute Mimi, founder of Bag of Love. She used to beauty writer for Female Magazine!

Overall review : I am quite happy with the content of Bag of Love "Debut Bag" March Edition & the products that are given are of adequate of size and has a good mixture of hair, face, fragrance & makeup tool worth more than the subcription fee. My favourite in the Bag of Love is Define makeup brush & the bag itself of course. My only hope is that I do not want to see repetitive products again and I can't wait to see how the next bag looks like ( yes there will be different bags design every month!)

Subscription fee - I would say pretty reasonable.

Currently the Bag of Love subscription is only available in Peninsular Malaysia and it is based on first come first serve basis.

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

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?

Un-boxing and Reviewing Fabulous Finds September Beauty Box

It's time of the month again for some beauty surprises, yay!!! 

Let's un-box my September Fabulous Finds  Beauty Box!

Love letter from Hui Ling, she said this month theme for the box is Glamour! 

Let's see how glamourous would this Sept Fabulous Finds Beauty Box would be!

I was extremely glad to see this September Fabulous Finds Beauty Box contents, 3 full sizes and 3 samples with a mix of skincare, makeup, hair care & fragrance!

Content of September Fabulous Finds Beauty Box are:-

The highlight is of course the luxury looking Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules & Strengthening Eye Capsules which comes with 14 capsules for each type.

Seriously I havent tried anything from Elizabeth Arden before I dont know why, but my bestie Ellis is a big fan of them and swear by their skincare! She let me tried her skincare range (for oily skin type one) but it does not suits my skin type hence I did not think much about it.

Well this comes in time, I'm happy to try new stuff with a fraction of price we pay to subscribe!

Info on this Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules & Strengthening Eye Capsules
  • Delivers the beauty restorative power of ceramides and essential lipids to help fight the visible signs of time     
  • Helps retexturize skin for a noticeably softer look     
  • Helps optimize collagen for a more resilient appearance     
  • Helps temporarily, visibly lift and contour the look of sagging skin in the eye area
Essence Duo Eyeshadow in 07 Mix it, Baby!

My first time trying Essence product and at least it did not fail me when I swatch it on my hand, it seems quite pigmented! However haven't really try on my eyes to tell whether it is really good. The thing is I have so many purple eyeshadow shades lying around in my room and I don't need another purple eyeshadow.. so I think I might this this away?

Essence Stay With Me Long Lasting Lipgloss in 04 Trendsetter

From the packaging the colour seems really pretty right!

When I opened it for the first time to try and swatch, I can smell the strong fragrance scent of the product and it kinda turns me off. But when I swatched it oh I kinda like the colour which it showed; a very pretty raspeberry hot pink! The texture is very creamy and  kinda long lasting because of the texture itself.

Clairol Colour Radiance Radiance Shampoo & Intensive Mask sampling

This brand is made in Germany and I have not tried prior to this. The scent is lovely, has this fruity passion fruit & orange scent! Will be trying out this soon to see how it works!

Narciso Rodriguez for Her EDT sampling

This is not the usual scent that I usually would buy & use but anyway I have put inside my handbag & decided to bring it along for my short beach holiday and try it .. will see if I like it.

Attached in the box is also a card that gives subscriber an opportunity to buy the Narciso Rodriguez EDT 100ml at their usual price RM378 but comes with free miniature & hand cream!

Overall Review of September  Fabulous Finds Beauty Box: 
I was pretty happy to see Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules & Strengthening Eye Capsules in the box considering it is a full size and counter brand product. As for other stuffs like the Essence products, to me it is an extra bonus which I think I don't mind trying it when I feel like it. And I always love receiving hair care sampling for one reason because it is always great to carry around for travelling & these brands are new to me and I don't mind trying it! And this month delivery was slight a bit late but I'm glad that we are well informed by Hui Ling as there are so many public holidays few weeks ago which caused the delay.

Fabulous Finds Beauty Box have two types of subscription:-
(i) Monthly : RM35 per month, recurring payment. Cancellable anytime with 30 days notice

(ii) Annual : RM420 one time payment : Receive 1 free box. i.e. 12 months + 1 free box in 13th month. Transferrable to another party as gift.
