Vanity Trove April Box 2013

11:01 PM

Hello friends! It has been 5 days since my last blog post, and i've been feeling guilty for not blogging since i've got a few pending blog posts that need to be up this week. 

Long story short, i'm here to share with you Vanity Trove April's Box! You have probably seen this box from other blogs, but i hope my opinions may be helpful in some ways. :) 

This time the tissue wrapper is purple! Before this my previous 2 boxes were blue tissue wrappers. Okay out of topic, my apologies, just that I like the colour purple. :)

For this month's theme is "The Shower of Summer", well in Malaysia is summer most of the time anyways so I was really excited to see what is in the box. 

The vouchers for this month is from Clarins! I'm really tempted to go for this even though i'm broke, lets just hope I get a job quickly so I can make use of this voucher. It's been a while since I had a facial or body treatment. *fingers crossed*

With the thinning o-zone layer plus the humidity in Malaysia, it is important to use skin care products with the minimum of SPF 15 to prevent our skin from sun burn and wrinkles. So remember to put on your SPF! As for me i'm currently using the Biore Face Milk with SPF 50, and i'm loving it. :) May read my review here.

Now let's get to the products inside the beauty box.
Clarins Intensive Brightening Serum
Most advanced skin care for a fairer and healthier skin. It has the ability to revive your skin's micro-mirrors at every layer thanks to the exclusive Trans-Luminescent Complex, so that your skin appears clear and radiant. You can expect your skin to look fairer, even, and translucent with a rosy glow. (RM295/30ml)

I personally have fair, translucent and pale looking skin according to my friends, so I tend to avoid using products that's whitening or brightening just to prevent myself from looking more like a ghost. But I think that it is necessary to use brightening products once in few months just to maintain the skin tone. I may be fair like a ghost, but i also get dark/tanned pretty easily, hence I try to stay away from direct sun light as much as possible. #vain. This time Vanity Trove was so generous to give so many samples for this product, and this is so that we can actually test the products properly to see how well it works on our skin. :) 

Narcisco Rodriguez
A perfume for her, offers a contemporary interpretation of femininity of honey flower, radiant amber and tactile wood essences. This fragrant, harmonious combination develops slowly and gently into a warm, spicy scent that is intoxicating and very unique, perfect for those warm summery nights. (RM278/50ml) | (RM378/100ml)

I love receiving small mini sample perfumes like this so that I can take it along with me in my handbag and of course to discover more new perfumes. I'm getting kind of bored with my Ralph Lauren and Body Shop perfumes so yes it's time for a change! Unfortunately this perfume is not the kind of scent I like. I think this would suit my mum's style more because it is very feminine and probably too classy and elegant for me. 

Kila Doll Licorice & Job's Tear Whitening Mask
This product was not listed in the catalog, probably just a free gift from them, and the back description is in chinese and i'm a banana so I can't read Chinese  But it's clearly a whitening mask, and when it comes to masks i'm all in it for it cause i love masks. Although however it's been a while since I pampered my face with masks, and i've got quite a number in my drawer that needs to be used! This is probably a reminder for me to pamper my face. :)

ORIKS Gemstone Nano Platinum Aqua Watery Cream
Is a moisturizer that smooths wrinkles, tighten pores and brightening your complexion. It contains more than 90 types of natural minerals to boost skin vitality and protest your skin from harsh environmental stressors. This hydrating formula locks in plenty of moisture to maintain supple and dewy skin after a long day in the hot summer sun. (RM398/50mg)

Not only does this brighten skin, but also tighten pores! I have super large pores and I really hope this would help out. In my previous VT box there was twister essence from ORIKS as well that's for pore tightening, i've yet to try that but am definitely going to try that soon. You may check out that box here.

KATE Eye Shadow DB
Comes with two shades that can be used individually or mixed. I's great for both beginners and professionals and comes in 8 different hues. If you're a smokey eyes lover, add this to your options for a colourful twist! (49/1.6g)

I love love love make ups! I get very happy whenever I get eye shadows, eye liners, lip sticks and stuff in my beauty box, because personally I rather subscribe to a beauty box that focuses more on make up than skin care products. But so far Malaysia has yet to have one like that. 

The eye shadow is very pigmented. With one swatch and the colours result to the pictures above. I've already tried this eye shadow but only used the shimmer pink colour for my crease, so far it's not bad, long lasting too (with primer). 

Perkins Nail Wrap
This would be perfect for those of you who do not have time to wait for your nail polish to dry. An option for a stylish and quick and mani-pedi. The Perkins Nail Wrap is a transparent nail-wrap base that allows fuss-free sticking and creative mix-and-match with its wide range of designs and colours. There are 21 glamorous designs uniquely made in Korea. Only (RM39.90/20 strips)

So I accidentally saw my friend's instagram about the nail art from this month's Vanity Trove. Although I knew about it but I heard we would be getting different designs. So I was really looking forward to the nail art design that i'll be receiving. When I saw my nail art i kinda loved it! It's flowery and pretty, can't wait to use this since i've never tried them before.

There's also a manual to teach you how to use it. 

Here's some good news for you ladies out there. Vanity Trove is no longer RM60 but RM50! For the April's Vanity Trove box, my favourite products would be the KATE Eye Shadow, The Narciso Rodriguez erfume, and the Perkins Nail Art.
