Washing my hair is probably one of the many things I enjoy doing! Always love the nice scent left behind by shampoo and the smooth tangle free touch after conditioning!

And ever since Essential introduced the Massage Shampoo Brush in mid-Ma… Wah~ I tell you, I can just go on and on massaging my scalp!

What??? You haven’t try Essential products before?? Come let me share with you more…

Last year I did a review on new Essential range catered for combination hair user.

IMG_7784

Yes combination hair is a hassle when selecting the right shampoo to use! You will end up compromising only one hair problem at a time. Having the best of both world was probably just a dream.

However, since 2014 Oct, I guess we had our dream come true!! The new improved Essential range brings the best of both worlds to you! With the optimum combination of Smart Cuticle Care & Sebum Cleansing Technology in the Light Finish Volumizing and Deep Cleansing Care variants, you can now achieve moisturised hair ends while maintaining a refreshed, breathable scalp!!

To make it better, for a limited time only, Essential is also giving out a massage shampoo brush with purchase of shampoo and conditioner banded pack.

What is a “Massage Shampoo Brush”?

A massage shampoo brush is a common haircare tool in Japan and is used by the majority of Japanese women to help remove dirt and sebum more effectively from the scalp. The massaging action on the scalp also helps improve blood circulation and promote relaxation. Now you can have a scalp massage without going to the salon! Save $$ and time yet maximum enjoyment!!

IMG_4856 IMG_4857 IMG_4860 IMG_4859

The grip of the brush was pretty comfortable and it’s so easy to use!!

Now girls with manicure, this is probably your like your super hero!! No more ruined manicure while washing/massaging your scalp with your fingers!! You don’t even need to worry about damaging your scalp if massage too hard!!

IMG_4865 IMG_4864

So far, I’ve been using the Essential Light Finish Volumizing Shampoo + Conditioner for 3 days (could have used it for a longer period but some hiccups in between hence I got my package late. Still glad that it reached me eventually!!!)!!

The scent is one factor I believe every girls would love! Now my hair ends looks healthier and no more oily scalp!! My long hair are also much more manageable!! With the new massage shampoo brush, it just made washing my hair a more enjoyable process!!

IMG_4866 IMG_4862

Switch to new Essential!!

I don’t know about you but I’m one of those who keep changing shampoo because my hair seems to be easily immune to the shampoo effect! Almost after 1-2 bottles, I will need search for new brand again…

I have oily scalp (if I did not wash my hair for 1 day, you can see my hair is so damn oily/shiny! It’s just one day know!?), dandruff (Yes, not only oily, dandruff starts to appear too.), dry hair and split ends (One strand of hair can split into 3 man!)! Finding one shampoo that is cost effective and tackles all this problem seems challenging! It’s either you get one that fix your scalp/dandruff but doesn’t give your hair that extra shine/soft touch (even drier hair) or you get one that gives you soft smooth hair but end up making your scalp even oilier, or worst, itchy scalp.. 😦 This is the problem of COMBINATION HAIR!! Grrr… You can never solve the problem with one shampoo!! ……

OH WAIT!

Actually, NOW you can!!! Just recently, in October, Essential relaunches with brand NEW packaging, IMPROVED formula and a NEW variant! \(^__^)/ ….. (so what???)

IMG_7787.JPG

SO it means…… Girls with combination hair, your problem is solved!!!

But before I go into details, let me just do a quick intro of Essential (for the benefit of new user)!!

IMG_7789.JPG

Essential is a popular haircare brand from Japan. Understanding the needs of Singaporean girls and their hair woes, Essential has a wide range of products to help repair and care for hair. Essential offers products ranging from basic care like Shampoo & Conditioner to more intensive treatments like Hair Masks and Leave On Serum/Lotions.

IMG_7783

Essential haircare range has relaunched with new, improved formula and technology. Now, Essential is available in 4 variants to suit all hair needs and types:

  • Nourishing Breakage Defense (orange) – for weak & damaged hair

Essential_Nourishing Breakage Defense_SP & CD_750ml

  • Moisturizing Frizz Free (pink) – for dull & rough hair

Essential_Moisturizing Friss Free_SP & CD_750ml

  • Light Finish Volumizing (yellow) – for flat and limp hair

Essential_Light Finish Volumizing_SP & CD_750ml

  • Deep Cleansing Care (blue) – for oily scalp & dry ends (new!)

Essential_Deep Cleansing Care_SP & CD_750ml

Out of these 4 variants, the yellow and blue variants have technology that caters to people with combination hair – oily scalp/roots yet dry ends.

Essence even came up with a table like below to show you the difference/effect of each of them.. (How thoughtful!)

IMG_7785.JPG

Well, The concept of ‘combination hair’ is similar to that of ‘combination skin’, where hair condition from the same person is not uniform from root to tip. People with combination hair usually have oily roots and dry ends. Consumers are not familiar with the term ‘combination hair’ and no other haircare brand has talked about it.

IMG_7784.JPG

Essential wants to take this chance to educate consumers about this concept and bring to their attention that they may have this condition and new Essential is the solution to their problem.

New Essential Light Finish Volumizing (yellow) and Deep Cleansing Care (blue) variants have the optimum combination of Smart Cuticle Care & Sebum Cleansing Technology to target both problems of roots and hair ends. As a result, consumers experience the best of both worlds with one product – airy light roots and moisturized ends. It also has Microfine All Smooth Essence which delivers nutrients to repair damaged hair surface from root to tip; promises to smoothen your locks and helps you achieve healthy and manageable hair.

Hair feels surprisingly smooth when you finger comb through whether wet or dry. With the absence of tangles, water does not get trapped between the tangles hence blow-drying your hair is also faster!

IMG_7790

Question: With so many variants, how do I know which is suitable for me?

Answer: Just ask yourself two questions and choose from the matrix below..

1. Do you have oily hair roots/scalp?
2. Do you have dry/damaged hair ends?

???????????????????????????

Deep Cleansing Care (blue) variant has the lightest formula and is suitable for people with very oily roots, followed by Light Finish Volumizing (yellow) variant for oily roots..

Improved treatment (tube) now works its magic on your hair in 30 seconds! The result you will get is deeply moisturized and manageable hair. Perfect for busy days!

For more intensive treatment to treat those dry/damaged ends, leaving hair softer,
smoother and more manageable, use Essential Hair Mask! People with very dry/damaged hair should use the richest formula Nourishing Breakage Defense (orange) variant for treatment and mask while the rest can use the Moisturizing Frizz Free (pink) variant which is comparatively lighter.

Always remember, do NOT apply treatment/mask on your scalp. Apply to hair ends only. It will make your hair (near to scalp) oily..

So here’s the variant I received!!!

IMG_7931

Deep Cleansing Care (blue) variant!!!IMG_7932

& Nourishing Breakage Defense (orange) treatments!

IMG_7930

SUPER EXCITED ME CAN’T WAIT TO TRY!!!! LOL!!

I’ve been washing my hair with Essential shampoo/conditioner everyday and I must say.. It smells AWESOME!! I think Japan brands always make their product smells soo nice!! Make people wana keep using them!!

IMG_7933

My thought on the first few days: Although they smell awesome (the scent last ONE whole day on my hair!!) but the shampoo/conditioner did not perform as expected. 😦 I’m glad that my scalp is less oily now but hair ends are still as dry. Using the conditioner, it did not gives me that silky smoothness.. 😦 Disappointed, I went on to try the 30 seconds treatment..

IMG_7961 IMG_7967

WOOO… This is sooo much better!! My hair instantly comes alive! It’s smooth and like advertisement, my hair can fly sui-sui when the wind blows!! Ok, too exaggerating but this treatment really helps to fixed my hair breakage and give me the desired smoothness!! When I comb my hair, it’s totally tangle-free and as smooth as silk! You won’t feel those hair breakage while combing your hair! Just remember to only use it on hair ends!! You would’t want your hair root to be oily again…

Too bad I can only use this 2-3 times a week!! (T_T) But heng ah~ (fortunately) I still have their hair serum from previous review (read HERE) to save my bad hair day!!!! Awwww.. heartz-heartz!!!

IMG_8148

Ya, the side without serum is how my hair looks like when I only use shampoo & conditioner.. Frizzy -__-

My thought after using it for 1 week plus: I can start to see improvement on my hair ends! Although using just the shampoo/conditioner did not give my hair that ultra smooth touch, I’m glad they’re still easy to comb and less frizzy now. However, I don’t know is it because my scalp is drier now, it tends to itch a bit at times.. hmm..

So to speak, to achieve that awesome smooth and sleek hair plus no oily scalp, it’s not impossible! I just have to use the whole series – Shampoo, Conditioner & Treatment/Mask + Serum!! Yes a bit ma-huan (troublesome) I know but that’s the price to pay for beautiful hair right?

5. Essential Pillow Damage Criminals Wanted Poster

Problems I’m facing:

ESS_Criminal Record_Pull n Tug ESS_Criminal Record_Frizz

Yes!! Do you often have this frizzy hair problem when u wakes up!!? I hate it when the door bells ring in the morning when I have to get outta bed to open the door.. Because I have no time to tidy my hair~ T_T

20140427-014316.jpg

20140427-014307.jpg

(See what I mean?? Pls don’t tell me this is sexy~)

When sleeping, tossing and turning causes hair to rub against the pillow, creating friction. We call such friction caused by the pillow as Pillow Friction.

Pillow Friction causes the hair cuticles to open up unevenly, causing hair to be rough, frizzy or prone to tangles. We call such hair damage caused by pillow friction as Pillow Damage.

As a result of Pillow Damage, you wake up the next day with frizzy, unmanageable hair like a lion’s mane. This is commonly referred to as bed hair.

To solve this problem, people usually have no choice but to wash their hair in the morning. Washing hair ‘resets’ the uneven alignment of hair cuticles and makes hair smooth and manageable again. However, by having to wash hair in the morning, they have to wake earlier and sacrifice beauty sleep.

Essential Cleo

(Cleo Mag Ad)

But now with we have the new Essential Leave-On Treatment Range  Day and Night Treatment Regime Repairs and Nourishes Round the Clock, what is bed hair man!! LOL~

The new treatment range prep your hair at night to look great the next morning. Introducing an innovative new hair treatment concept, the Essential Leave-On Treatment range helps repair and nourish your precious locks round the clock, even while you sleep! Protects each hair strand and minimizes Pillow Damage.

Comprising of an intensive repair Treatment Milk (for night use) and a revitalizing Hair Serum (for day use), this new day-and-night treatment range is specially formulated with Cuticle Care and Cuticle Protection ingredients that weightlessly repairs and moisturizes damaged hair cuticles and also shields it from external stresses such as friction and humidity.

Leave nothing up to fate; wake up with smooth, lustrous locks every day!

Are you excited already!!!?? Hahahaha… I am!!

20140427-012625.jpg

This is the retail size Treatment Milk (for Night Use) 100ml! Night use night use…. means…. to use at night (of course!) LOL! Okay, enough of joke! This treatment milk works like a sleeping mask! You heard me, sleeping mask!

20140427-012630.jpg

The packaging of the sleeping mask is like a pump bottle. Yes, pump bottle! Not those tub with turn cap or squeeze-tube. No more over-squeezed amount or unhygienic usage from the tub.. 😉

20140427-012635.jpg

The milky, non-greasy texture is absorbed instantly by your hair and forms a protective layer between each hair strand and your pillow, protecting your hair cuticles from Pillow Friction while you toss and turn. Ladies can confidently look forward to stronger, healthier and silky soft hair that is easy to manage and style the next morning

How to use:

  • Use on towel-dried or damp hair
  • Pump an appropriate amount onto palm
  • Spread and apply evenly onto hair, concentrating on mid-length to the tip of hair
  • Do not rinse off
  • Go to bed!

What I think?? Seems pretty GOOD! See, here’s my hair frizzy curl before going to bed!

20140427-012653.jpg

20140427-013726.jpg 20140427-013721.jpg

20140427-013732.jpg

Yes, usually after my evening shower, I do nothing to my hair and it will dry like this mess~ LOL… I applied the treatment milk on my dry hair and immediately my hair looks more tame.

20140427-013803.jpg  20140427-013838.jpg

Yes, I know what you are thinking..

“You finger brushed your hair of course it looks tame on the treated side ma~”

But, FYI, I finger-brushed both sides…

20140427-013923.jpg

Seeee!! Picking up both “bush” of hair together, can you now see the difference?? I’m happy that SampleStore actually introduce this to their members and I think you should really try it too (I’ll provide sample redemption link at the end of my post)!

How do I look next morning? Or rather how my hair look after a night of treatment!?

GREAT! They’re much more manageable and smoother than before!

20140506-225912.jpg 20140506-225920.jpg

See, they now can easily be twirl around and most importantly, I DON’T look like a angry lion when I wake up! ehem~ Don’t ask if I apply the treatment on my left or right side of my hair for this review.. I applied “every” side of course! I wouldn’t wanna wake up with left side of me like a lion and only right side with tamed hair~

Treatment does not stop when you wakes up! You can continue your treatment with Essential Leave On Serum in the morning!

20140427-012639.jpg

The Cuticle Protection Ingredients form a protective veil over hair to prevent frizz and dryness caused by humidity and UV rays. Just spread the serum evenly onto hair and it invigorates hair, giving it a healthy and lustrous shine while protecting it from the sun.

How to use:

  • Use on towel-dried or damp hair, or before blow-drying
  • Can also be used on dry hair
  • Pump an appropriate amount onto palm
  • Spread and apply evenly onto hair, concentrating on mid-length to tip of hair

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!

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!*

20120527-134910.jpg

20120527-134916.jpg

I thot the protective safety cap is suppose to protect it but it seems like it’s either the cap is not doing a good job or VT did not check the bot bef sending.. I tried to spray some on my hand to see how it looks like and apparently… NOTHING came out.. Utterly disappointed! The bottle has nth left!! The mist is all over the box but not in the bottle!

20120527-173322.jpg

It’s spilled everywhr! The box is sticky and messy.. And I think it has been spilled quite some time alr as the lil card VT would usually attached tog is almost like ‘glued’ tog..! I kinda like this month’s card but…….

20120527-135459.jpg

See what I mean?? Probably I should reconsider if I want to continue my subscription w Vanity Trove..

(Review on next post!)

Anyway.. Some other items in the box includes….

20120527-140221.jpg

Essential Damage Care shampoo.. Both rich premier & nuance airy are in travel size (80ml).. I’ve used both before.. Smells good but it feels like seeing Pantene in my Trove box.. Nothing special..

20120527-141159.jpg

20120527-173157.jpg

Next item is tis bb cream from Ettusais.. Love this product even though it’s only 4g!! Like what I had shared on my FB, this bb cream can do oil control, cover up with a rosy glow, hide pores, even out skin tone, moisturizing, prevents acne and has SPF 30 PA++.. Ain’t this a good product? Will definitely make use of this promo leaflet! 🙂

Update on June 3: this is good stuff!! It can really even out skin tone and hide pore! The SPF I can’t feel it so can’t really say it work or did not work! Hahaha! But I’m really loving this product! Will be purchasing the full size at Ettusais counter using VT promo leaflet..

Jelly (13gms)?? Haha! Interesting.. (but still can’t get over my spilled sunbrella!!) haven’t seen anything like this before. This jelly is by SKINC. Wat it can do? I suppose that will be anti-aging, brightening and detox.. I wonder if they have other type of jelly? Lolx! Let me try one soon before I comment further abt the taste etc..

(Review on next post!)

Last thing in my trove is this Enabelle’s Mizu Therapy Mask – Rejuvenating. Wow.. Not cheap oh.. Within the box, is a promotion card (1 for 1) but one box (5 sheets) cost S$107! I think I’ll only buy if I strike lottery, but on one condition.. if it’s good.. 🙂

That’s all for my regular June Trove.. Next, I’ll be showing you my Testing Task Force products that comes together with my June Trove..

The Body Shop Moisture White – Shiso Whitening Serum

Update on June 3: this is a not bad product.. At least I feel this way. 1 packet is only good for 2-3 usage.. I’ve got a bigger face area so only 2 use. But I’m quite satisfied w e effect aft my 2 use. Tho I can’t see significant whitened effect on my face but it wasn’t too oily and din cause any outbreak!

Update on June 3: it comes in re-sealable pack within the box.. Well it really is odorless.. No Chinese medication smell at all.. I’m in aircon room while using this and my room smell alright! …but 2nd thot, I kinda miss that Chinese medi smell.. it juz doesn’t feel right without the smell.. Weird me! Ok, smell aside! This sticky patch is not sticky at all.. I paste one on my back and one on my foot.. The one on my foot keep flipping up.. Frustrating.. The one on my back ain’t any better.. I hope I wun need to wake up next morning finding my missing patches…

Previously the Egyptian Magic Cream I rec’d is also part of this Teating Task Force..

Well.. That’s all for my June Trove and Testing Task Force products.. I hope VT will offer to send a replacement Sunbrella to me.. It’s like rec’g a feature product but came in a empty bottle.. Can see cnt use… -__-

As of now, I feel that Bellabox is doing a better job.. Despite the low cost, I still get good products.. Paying S$15, I can get Enavose too.. Oh well… I think I can really consider of canceling my Vanity Trove alr…
