Bellabox Giftbox!

20130921-022805.jpg

Straight to the point! See… You like my giftbox too?? Received this complimentary gift box (worth S$125) from Bellabox because I’m subscribed to them (again)! See… below was (part of) the email I received… Subscribe now (then) and receive a free $125 gift box!! Why not! It’s like paying $19.95 for 2 box! Capture

Soooo, first thing that attracted me to get this gift box is because of this….!

20130921-022817.jpg

Anna Sui 870!! A bright cheery yellow! Opaque yellow! Vivid yellow!

20130921-022828.jpg

Broad brush is another thing I like about it!

20130921-022836.jpg

20130921-022843.jpg

Index finger: 2 coat

Middle finger: 1 coat

If you like this yellow, you can check out from HERE to see which is your nearest outlet to grab one!

20130921-022850.jpg

Well, that’s not the only thing that caught my attention! Another reason why I chose this gift box is because… it has twistband!!

Twistbands are really useful, pretty and most importantly.. cause no dents/damage/crease to your hair!!!

20130921-022856.jpg

These are the 3 colors I received. basic black and white and a sweet pink that comes with a bling bling!

20130921-022916.jpg

Next, shampoo & conditioner. I assume I don’t have to introduce this again.. I had received them so many time and i’ll sound like an old lady if I intro them again (like a spoil radio that keeps on repeating!)

Summary, it’s the scent that will keep me wanting to use it.. 😉

20130921-022923.jpg

VEET! Hair removal cream… erm, not very useful for me as i don’t really have much hair to remove and if I really need to, I usually go to the experts.. LOL! Pampered me~

20130921-022929.jpg

I had this from one of my beauty box! It looks/sounds really good but i have not used it yet because the thot of having to wash away the mask makes me lazy~ hahaha

You can read up my previous post HERE for more details about this mask pack! C’mon, don be lazy.. (LOL!!)

20130921-022935.jpg

Next next… something from Adonis.. I never expect to see Adonis product in my trove..

Herbal Peel Gel – Mild exfoliator

Using a variety of Herbs and seven types of natural eco-friendly ingredients, this mask delivers serious brightening, glowing results. The dead skin on the surface of your face accumulates over time, causing a dull, gray complexion. Only with exfoliation can you remove this skin to reveal the soft, new skin underneath, revealing its natural lightness.

Herbal Peel Gel exfoliates gently and expertly, providing a bright skin tone, replenishing your youthful complexion and removing unsightly dead skin.

How to use? Apply a thin, comprehensive layer of the mask on your face, avoiding eye area. Leave on initially for one minute, then spread and massage it into your skin in circular motions. Rinse off with clear water and apply moisturiser and SPF right after.

Dermatox – Anti-toxin

Dermatox provides intensive purification for congested pores. Over time dirt, oil and dead skin can clog pores leading to breakouts, blemishes, even scarring. Prevent and treat your blemishes with Dermatox.

This amazing product will let you know in two ways that it’s properly working: The first is by releasing a strong smell indicating the level of toxicity in your pores that’s being released. With regular use, the smell lessens, proving that there is less toxicity. The second way you’ll know it’s working is by the compliments you’ll receive on your improved, radiant, clear complexion.

How to use? Spray Dermatox onto cleansed skin. Leave on for 5 to 10 minutes and rinse with cleanser. For best results, rinse with Adonis Cleanser.

20130921-022942.jpg

Justin Bieber roll-on Eau de Toilette .. I’m not a Bieber fans… but this lil nothing smell ok to me!

20130921-022949.jpg

It’s pretty convenient to bring around! Just one thing about it.. The scent ain’t that lasting as compared to my other perfume.. and the roller isn’t very smooth. Not much perfume “rolled” out when I apply it.. 😦

20130921-022955.jpg

Ok, now for something that I like again… Dr.Ci:Labo! Again, I’m gonna do it the lazy way! hahaha… click HERE to view more details about it!

20130921-023005.jpg

Last but not least… A very powerful sunblock!! SPF70!! Hell madness! hahahah! Armada Sport 70 is by VMV Hypoallergenics!

If you spend lots of time outdoors, and want a very lightweight, high performance cream, this sunblock is for you! Extreme protection for extreme outdoor conditions. It’s ultra lightweight and very water resistant.

Impressive PFAs are combined with SPFs as high as 70-90 to effectively screen out UVA and UVB rays for active protection against sun-induced skin cancer, photoaging and hyperpigmentation.

Defensive-line formula creates a unique “barrier-film,” an invisible virtual “second skin,” that stays on skin’s surface to maintain protection integrity in and out of water, and while exposed to harsh sun and heat. Soft, skin-coating silicones give this barrier-film an exceptionally smooth glide and keep it light, so skin stays comfortable.

To Use:

Shake well before use. Apply liberally on face and body skin, carefully avoiding membranous areas of eyes and nostrils. For best results, apply 30 to 60 minutes prior to sun exposure, especially before highly active sports. When outdoors, reapply at least every 1 to 2 hours, after swimming or sweating and after towel drying.

Well, that’s all for my gift box! It’s a quick post because most of the item here are either repeated products or I haven’t use thus not much to share.. All I can say now is… Stay tune for the next box.. I think it’s coming in 2 weeks time…. 😀

Pardon any error/typo you see here.. I’m too tired to proofread yet wana quickly share this with you! Shall make amendments again!

New Vanity Trove

Good evening all! Today I’m gonna share with you my FIRST revamped Vanity Trove! What? What revamp?? yea.. Vanity trove had changed their concept last month and now you will no longer rec’d any SURPRISE at your doorstep..

From July onward, subscriber can pick what they want to goes into their trove!!! (Yeah or Neh?)

VT

For me i feel .. it’s a neh.. Yes, you get to pick what you want but u no longer get to anticipate any surprise nor try new product (by “force”).. When we (people) are given an option, we usually choose to pick something we’re more comfortable with. We also tends to measure the sample by its value and in the end, good sample that are of low value may be overlooked..? You know u paid S$25 of course u want to maximize every dollar and get the best samples! Given a Go60 mask (retail price: 5 for S$60) and a Beauty Diary mask (retail price: box of 10 for less than S$20??) which one will you want?? Go60 of course(!) but Beauty Diary is as good tooo you see…

Well, the only yeah part is.. i get to choose what i want! i can click click click all the expensive sample!!! Fastest finger first!! But again…. if these are all sample size (sachet 1ml, 3ml, 5ml) i don’t see a point in paying S$25 to get 6-7 sachet sample.. i can just go to the retail outlet or counter to ask for one…

CONCLUSION, i had cancelled my Vanity Trove subscription until i see any good promo! 😀 So for now.. Let’s just take a quick peep at what we have this month!

IMG_4064

See, that’s what i mean.. i have Dr Ci:Labo 2 times (this is the 3rd!) already but i still select this when it is available! WHY? because.. Firstly! it is really a good product! Save time and save effort! Secondly, this thing cost S$130 for 120g!!! So if u do your maths, this thing itself already cost S$21.67 (20g)!

You can check out my previous post HERE for this product’s review..

IMG_4066

Next, Kose’s sunblock! I haven’t use this but it has been stirring my curiosity!! LOL Kose is a reputable brand and i believe this little thing should be good! I’ll review again when i start using this…

IMG_4067

Next next~ DrGL collagen essence! Again, this is a sample that i had gotten before and it’s so good that i decided to grab it once more! Cost is a factor tooo! 30ml for S$198 – aint that crazy!? You can click HERE to find out more about this essence…

As of now… Just this 3 items it’s already worth almost S$100!! O_o

IMG_4068

Next up~ Kerastase hair oil! Again again! This is another good hair oil that i had tried before – when i just did my perm! It’s does wonder and i decided to grabbed it (heehee) one more time!

IMG_4072

Kilo Off Slimming Tea! i want to clarify, not that i want to slim down.. but i thot this tea will taste as yummy as the Fruity tea (which i will show you again) but it turns out not as fantastic.. Just this 2 sachet, pls dun expect to shed 10kg off! It will be good to just drink this like a beverage.. it’s still nice to drink it as a tea than SLIMMING tea…

IMG_4073

 

Last but not least! My Beauty Diary’s 2 step mask! Serum is packed at the “hot air balloon” area.. i haven try this mask but I’m pretty confident it will works well because none of their mask have failed me yet!! 🙂

IMG_4070

OOPS! sorry!! nearly forgot about this… I think this is an extra perks for subscriber because i don’t remember i opt for this shampoo!! Although its not something fantastic but this thing will comes in handy when i go for my short trip! Nice scent shampoo and hair feels softer after wash!! *thumbs up!*

So that’s all for this month’s (July/Aug) trove!! stay tune SOON for my next (last) trove that will be arriving within this week or maybe next… *wink*

 

May Trove – Floral Notes

It’s time for Vanity Trove again!!! Yippie!!! This month’s trove is pretty my type.. Hahaha!

20130423-231643.jpg

Many items and useful items!! Lets start from the first thing first..

20130423-231651.jpg

Dr.Ci:Labo Aqua Collagen Gel! This is a 5 in 1 skincare!!! Let me try to find my old post which I had done bef (had rec’d the same sample in Jan Trove)!!

I will update on this again!! If you’re getting excited, u can try to do a search on my blog and it should bring u to somewhere near.. (Haha..) Alright, here is the LINK! Click to read more.. 😀

20130423-231705.jpg

20130423-231713.jpg

Sebamed Feminine Intimate Wash. This is a soap-free feminine intimate wash for gentle external cleansing with a pH value of 3.8 specific for the microflora balance. 100% soap and alkali free with natural organic derivative tenside complex for extra mild cleansing. Specifically formulated and clinically tested to meet the needs of feminine hygiene for the very sensitive skin of the genital are.

As i read on to find what the ingredient.. i saw…”Sodium Laureth Sulfate”! I understand that some consumers doesn’t like SLS.. WHY? Because laboratory studies found that long-term ingestion of SLES (SLS) can cause cancer, tumors, kidney and liver damage in rats. In humans, inhalation has been associated with headaches, vertigo, and eye, nose, throat, and lung irritation. Additionally, some people have an allergic reaction that causes extreme scalp irritation and hair loss.

I’m not trying to scare u (LOL), you can do a google search and find many related info on SLS.. HERE is one of the site which i find it quite useful..

20130423-231719.jpg

Next, we have BATH SALT from Aqua Rine!!! I’m so happy when i see this! Do you still remember one of my recent post on Bath Salt?? i said i wanted to try the Peach Aroma one and.. tadaaaa!! hahahaha! Altho i had the Rose already but i don’t mind sharing with my mom!

You can click HERE to check out my previous post!

Update as of 27 Apr 2013: Had tried the peach aroma salt! It smell really like peach! Sweet! But I think I still prefer flora.. The sweetness of the peach makes me feel as if the ants will kidnap me when I slp!! Flora (rose/sakura) aroma salt is much soothing and ease my slp! LOVE!!

20130423-231729.jpg

Next up, we have Go 60 Treatment Masque!

Any one heard of Go 60? Go 60 is a spa boutique (facial, slimming, spa) that uses the concept of “60”! So its like 60 mins of treatment or S$60 for a treatment or even $60 for 2-pax (promotion)

Read from their site, seems like they’ve stripped their price structure right down to a single flat fee of $60 for any service. That means no more price uncertainty!

Best part, it is stated in their website that there is no hidden cost or hard sell!! Now I can do my treatment at peace of mind! No more “peer pressure” and burnt a hole in my pocket for purchasing unwanted packages!!

20130423-231742.jpg

Have I not talked about my masque?? Hahaha! The masque I’ve got is a Treatment Masque. I can’t find anything online about it so all I can share now is that this masque is selling at S$60 for 5 pcs! That’s $12 each!

I’m gona share more about it after I used this..

Oh and…. That’s not all!! VT subscribers have got extra treat!! Complimentary treatment to be used by 15 June!!! That’s worth $60 already!!!

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..

20130323-005845.jpg

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!!

January Trove – 2013 Fresh New You

20121223-160305.jpg

Slim Secrets Bar! How many of you have tried this? Seriously I’m not a person who’s keen in all this diet snack bars.. but if given one, i won’t resist to try though! >_< & this snack bar seems beneficial..

Contains Soy protein which is:

  • High in fibre
  • High in protein
  • Low in saturated fat
  • Cholesterol-free
  • Lactose-free
  • A good source of omega-3 fatty acids
  • High in phytoestrogens

The suggested health benefits of whole soy foods include:

  • Lowered blood pressure
  • Soybeans are thought to be of some health benefit to menopausal women. Soybeans contain hormone-like substances called phytoestrogens (‘phyto’ means plant). More research is needed, but soybeans seem to offer promise in helping some women to manage menopausal hot flushes.
  • Improvements to blood vessels, such as greater elasticity of artery walls
  • Reduced risk of osteoporosis
  • Protection against various cancers, including those of the breast, colon, prostate and skin
  • Management of endometriosis
  • Soybeans have been shown to lower blood cholesterol levels as well as lipoproteins, both known risk factors for heart disease

Are Low Glycemic Low glycemic foods are essential for lifelong health and can help you:

  • Lose weight: GI reflects the rate at which sugar is released into the bloodstream and the slower this occurs, the better. Foods with a low GI are digested slower and therefore leave you ‘fuller’ longer

There is strong evidence that the high levels of fat consumed by most Australians are a major risk factor for conditions like gallbladder disease, cancer, and diabetes.

Furthermore, high levels of saturated fats, which are found in animal fats, high-fat dairy foods, tropical oils, and hydrogenated (solidified) vegetable oils, raise your cholesterol level and promote heart disease and strokes. The benefits of a low fat diet not only include better health as shown here but also the added benefit of potential weight loss if combined with other positive actions such as exercise.

Next next!! This very interesting Aqua-Collagen-Gel from Dr.Ci:Labo! Why interesting?? Because this is a ALL IN ONE miracle gel!! It’s an anti-aging lotion, anti-aging emulsion, lifting serum, brightening and makeup base all at once! What’s more to expect!?

As women age, they experience hormonal imbalances, reduced basal metabolism and many other bodily changes and these cause the skin moisture to decline. Such a drop in skin moisture is the most significant trigger of aging. Moreover, reduced basal metabolism results in lower collagen production.

Reduced collagen leads to oxidation, which damages, hardens and weakens the skin’s collagen. As a result, the skin loses its resilience and elasticity. As there is less facial muscle to hold up the skin, the skin is drawn down by gravity and starts to sag visibly on the surface. By using Aqua-Collagen-Gel Enrich-Lift-EX alone, one can finish the step of anti-aging lotion, anti-aging emulsion, lifting serum, brightening and makeup base all at once!

Formulated with the “Lifting Complex” composed of three different lifting ingredients, Aqua-Collagen-Gel Enrich-Lift-EX leaves an invisible film on the skin and provides a high level of support for less resilient skin, so that instant results can be achieved. Alpha lipoc acid, a universal anti-aging ingredient, powerfully attacks the sagging of skin with its ultra anti-oxidative potency and ability to promote collagen production.

One step and everything is done! man! This is… unbelievable! Can’t wait to try this! Ahhh.. i know u must be concern about the price?? hmm.. true that it won’t be something very affordable but the fact that it’s an all in one product.. it doesn’t seems that costly anymore..

The other 3 types of gel they have are:

Aqua-Collagen-Gel Super Moisture (S$130 for 120g) which is also an all-in-one gel – suitable for normal/sensitive/combination skin and those with dry skin concern!

Aqua-Collagen-Gel Super Sensitive (S$130 for 120g) – suitable for sensitive skin and those who feel irritation when using other skincare items concern!
