This bb cream is formulated with amazing new brightening ingredient “WHITE 377”.
Also formulated with Alpha-Arbutin, bellis perennis and edelweiss flower extract. It will help fighting against regularly appearing “dark spots” and “skin dullness”.

It is also formulated with EGF which helps promote the regeneration of skin cells. EGF works aggressively against the signs of skin damage caused by UV rays, as well as other skin problems such as the appearance of dark spots, wrinkles, fine lines and dryness.

What is WHITE 377? It is developed based on the polyphenol substance found in the European Red Pine, an evergreen coniferous tree. White 377’s power to inhibit the tyrosinase enzyme activity is 7,000 times that of arbutin and 2,400 times that of either kojic acid or ascorbic acid sodium salt.

What is EGF? EGF is a type of protein that originally exists in the human body. The application of EGF on the skin will help increase the skin’s elasticity and ability to retain moisture.

This night capsule is good! A small capsule contain quite a lot of serum.. It feels oily on ur hand. but when u apply, the oil seems to form up a protecting layer on your face and slowly being absorbed and it became less oily and face feels smooth (but if u rub it hard, u can actually still feel the oil after some time) Seems like i can understand better the reason behind the price now.. worth it if you dun mind the price..

20130323-005916.jpg

VT even include this ALL JAPANESES words booklet for us.. (like i know how to read!?) Lucky for those who can read but this booklet seems pretty useless to me and i would rather visit the web! hahaha..

Overall i think this is a pretty impressive trove, value aside! The more trove we get the more we understand that most item are sample pack and can easily be requested from the beauty counters, For eg: Dr.Ci:Labo products, it merely cost S$10~ due to the current promo. However, if there isn’t any promo, this whole trial set is worth about S$15! That’s almost half my Vanity Trove price! But to me, it’s the effort that they put in to recommend you new and probably effective products! Ask yourself, if VT din not throw in this products, will you go to (say) Dr.Ci:Labo counter to ask for every sample every month? At least i won’t.. LOL..

Hope you had enjoy reading.. ^_^ Will keep you guys posted if i started using any of the products here… oooh~~ excited!!
