Vanity Trove: February 2013 Review

1:40 AM

My review box for Vanity Trove Malaysia is finally here!

My first impression of the box was that it looks elegant (which I like) and solid.

The box is a pull out box. Once I pulled out the box I could smell perfume-like scent in which is nice and relaxing.

This is the first thing you'll see once you move the tissue covers aside.

It's either they put the wrong card in my box or they mistaken me for Juan? But anyways small matter, is the thought that counts. :)

The catalog for the products that are in the box.

So here are the products that I've received. 
Wella SP Smoothen Shampoo and Mask (travel sized). Smoothen Shampoo cleanses and treats the hair structure to boost suppleness. Follow your cleansing routine with the Smoothen Mask to detangle hair. Original price for a full sized product is Smoothen Shampoo (RM65) and Smoothen Mask (RM100)

Chocolates! They are really good by the way. :)

DI PALOMO: The Tuscan Rose Moisturizing Body Wash (travel sized). This body wash is a rich, luxuriant body wash formulated using the finest ingredients. Added moisturizers like Pro-Vitamin B5 keeps skin smooth and subtle. Full sized costs RM69/250ml

BENEFIT: POREfessional (travel/trial sized). Minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines with this smooth operator. Silky and lightweight, wear the POREfessioal balm on its own or under or on top of makeup. Its translucent, oil-free formula complements different skin tones and helps makeup stay put. It contains Vitamin E derivative, known to protect the skin from free radicals. Full sized is RM115/22ml

B.LIV: Off with those heads blackheads sebum gel (trial/travel sized). This product removes white heads and blackheads gently and effectively. This wonder gel also keeps oil secretions under control and banishes all kinds of skin irritations. Full sized RM139/30ml | RM179.90/45ml

ORIKS: Wild Ginseng Stemcell Twister Essence (left) & BB Cream (Right) [Both travel/trial sized]. The Ginseng reduces visible pores while hydrating and nourishes skin. The BB Cream is formulated with plant stem cells to repair and keep your skin healthy while covering imperfections. Its unique three-tier cream design includes the milk lotion with wild ginseng, the concealer and the serum with repair complex CLR. Full sized: Twister Essence RM218/35ml | BB Cream RM108/35ml

My Thoughts
When I first opened the box I was very happy because I saw the two products that I've always wanted to try but never got the chance because, well they are expensive. The two products that I've always wanted to try is the B.LIV and BENEFIT POREfessional. Obvious reasons are because I have lots of blackheads and whiteheads, and large pores! :( Really hate it. 

But while looking through the catalog, I read that ORIKS Wild Ginseng Stemcell Twister Essence reduces pores I got even happier! So what's my conclusion? I would say that Vanity Trove provides quality samples and products. Because this was a sponsored beauty box I am loving everything in it. However, I was also thinking if I were to pay RM60 for this, I would be a little reluctant. 

Personally I think RM60 would be much more worth it if we received at least 1 full sized product. So far I think Vanity Trove is doing pretty average with the choice of products put in their box other than lack of full sized products. 

There are also other beauty box companies out there who provide somewhat similar products but for a cheaper price and I've also seen some who are really cheap and the products given are worth the cost. I think Vanity Trove needs to make their beauty box worth RM60. Even so at the end of the day it is up to individual's preference on which beauty box company to sign up with. Also I hope that Vanity Trove can provide more make up cosmetics as many other beauty box companies are already focusing so much on skin care products.

  1. I've got those pores issues which I really really hate too. If the result is awesome, I might give it a keep us posted k?! Thanks :D

  2. i will not buy this, not worth it. Not even a full size item.

  3. I was just about to say the same thing too :P Always wanted to try B.LIV and BENEFIT POREfessional as well, especially the benefit one!

  4. Hey everyone, if you are about to COMMENT please put a NAME. Because when i see ANONYMOUS I would assume is SPAM. Thanks. :)

  5. The items in the box are not worth RM60, not to mention the slow delivery service. If the other boxes could deliver in 1-2 days for half the price, why can't VT do the same? I haven't received mine yet and still waiting for it, like a painful childbirth. VT needs to shape up.

  6. Vanity Trove one redeeming quality is their Facebook administrator Valerie. At this very moment, both product offerings & delivery is not up to par.

  7. RM60 it's a bit overpriced. If would be better if they could insert one full size product to make the money worth. People may opt for a cheaper alternative for beauty box and they get better products than this. But I really like the material of the box-like-drawer. :)

  8. I got mine too!
    Really wishes there was at least one full-sized product to make it better :)
    Hopefully they will get more products in their beauty box soon.
    I have to agree with @Elizabeth.
