Febuary Trove – Romancing Beauty

Dang dang dang dang~~~~ It’s time again for Vanity Trove!!!

This month’s trove is a bit… half excited and half not. Why?? Read on!!

20130123-220047.jpg

Seems pretty “light” this month ya? haha.. nothing too hoo-ha about~

20130123-220106.jpg

So first, Let me introduce you to something that i’ve seen at most 7-eleven outlet!

*drumroll*

The GABANite All Natural Drink Relaxer…! Like what is printer on the bottle, specially formulated for night time to help you sleep! Gamma Amino Butyric Acid (GABA) and melatonin are naturally produced in the body and are responsible for relaxation and sleep. This drink provides the additional GABA and melatonin (along with other important ingredients) needed for individuals to relax and be calm during times of stress which affects sleep. Better sleep leads to better work performance, social interaction and better life.

I haven try this because i have no problem sleeping at night thus I’m pretty worry if i drink this i will … OVERSLEPT!! hahahaha!!! Will i??? I can’t recall how much 7-eleven is selling this but it probably won’t cost more than S$5 per bottle like this and a bottle is about 60ml! For maximum result drink whole bottle at one go(!) else half a bottle should do the trick! Zzzz~ (should be tasty in a way as its berry flavour, with a natural sugar substitute, Stevia.)

You can check out THIS SITE for more GABANite drink information!!

No wonder people says.. PACKAGING IS VERY IMPORTANT This not-very-eye-catching Aloe Vera Gel by Jorubi is the “Gem” of Jorubi products!! This aloe vera gel soothes/moisturizes skin, promotes healing of minor burns/wounds/ulcers, relieves rashes/sunburn/chaffing/abrasions/skin irritations. (reminds me of the Moa green balm)

This gel is not very expensive.. S$19.80 for 120ml, S$11.20 for 30ml and S$3.75 for 10gm! Easily available at Watsons/Guardian/SaSa/Unity!!

20130123-220156.jpg

NOW THIS IS WHAT I WILL GO CRAZY FOR!!! Not only its from KIEHL’S!! IT’S….. Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution!

20130123-220203.jpg

20130123-220208.jpg

Tho its only 4ml but each time (morning & night) i only have to use a drop only spot area before moisturizer..

Clearly Corrective™ DARK SPOT SOLUTION is a fast-acting serum that evens skin tone and diminishes dark spots to impart overall radiance and luminosity to the skin:

• In as little as 2 weeks, 55% of women clinically demonstrated a significant reduction in dark spot intensity.
• In 4 weeks, 69% of women clinically demonstrated a continued reduction in dark spots intensity and 73% of women showed a significant reduction in acne scarring.  Reduction in other skin discolorations was clinically evident among 69% of women.
• In 8 weeks, 87% of women clinically demonstrated more uniform skin tone to deliver breakthrough clarity.
• With continued daily usage, Clearly Corrective helps to prevent the formation of future dark spots and other skin discolorations.
• No Silicones. No Parabens. No Fragrance. No Colorants. No Optical Diffusers.

I had use it for *counting* …. about 3 days already and i’m pretty impress with the results! No.. my freckles are still visible but they seems to have lighted quite a bit! Not too sure is it due to Shakura facial treatment or Kielh’s! but i think both plays a part!! if this Kielh’s is still working after i finish the whole sample, i tell you.. I’M GONA GO GET ONE FULL SIZE SOLUTION!!! What? how much you are asking??? Seriously if is works well i think S$49.50 is still consider alright for a 30ml bottle!!!!

Hmm.. that means this 4ml we got from VT is worth S$6.60? 4ml last easily more than 2 weeks for me.. great! this is…. totally a good investment!! HAHAHAHA!!

20130123-220229.jpg

Alright, next in the list.. something from Origins.. not too excited about this as i recall i’ve gotten this in one of my trove alright.. just a regular anti-aging serum.

20130123-220235.jpg

I believe this tube is no stranger to most girls out there!! BB Cream from Skin79. Many firsl are crazy over Skin79 bb cream.. but for my, i think Ettusais better.

"diamond" hand    Spots still visible    non-cream type

This bb cream is a bit too runny and coverage is not there. If i need to use this, i think i will apply it on top my my Ettusais bb cream to give it a dewy glowing look! It will works well for people gg after dewy glowing look and coverage is not an issue for them. & where to get them? Watsons/Guardian/SaSa/BHG/John Little/BeautySpring! Not too hard to find ya!?

20130123-220254.jpg

This little soap caught my attention! It’s Yuan Mandarin Orange Soap – Sweet Happiness! I like the oriental and unique packaging. As this is a sample size, we are not able to see the embossed print on the regular soap. (continue scrolling down)

Lights up your complexion like a walk in the sea air. A real breath of fresh air, this serum contains active marine ingredients which neutralize harmful pollutants, enhance the skin’s natural defenses and help it to breathe – for a fresh complexion and toned skin.

June Bellabox – Summer Upgrade!

Just when i thot i’ll be missing my June box last night.. there comes a knock on my door!! As i peep through my peep hole, i saw my favourite courier guy!! He’s here to bring mi my June Bellabox!!! Why i say favourite?? Because he’s the very patient courier who delivered my first VT to me.. i think this time round he sort of knew that i wun be home early so he came rather later..? or maybe i’m just guessing too much! hahaha!

Anyway… i’m still glad to be able to rec’d my Bellabox before i go to bed!!!!20120607-233107.jpg

20120607-233334.jpg

A BB Cream.. i think i’ve been rec’g quite a number of good BB cream lately.. I’m very happy about it.. So what’s sepcial about this BB Cream? well.. other thn the usual SPF protection, it’s also oil-free, provide 24hrs hydration and give you a natural pink undertone of skin shine.. What attracts me most is that.. repeated use of this BB Cream, dark spots fade and skin radiates!! Ain’t that unbelieveable?!

20120607-233346.jpg

20120607-233820.jpg

Now here’s another “body lotion”.. this is Biotherm’s anti-drying body milk.. This body milk smells really familiar.. i just can’t recall what is it… it’s not just orange or lemon.. it’s.. it’s……..

I tried a lil bit on my hand and it doesn’t feels very oily and it gets absorbed very quickly.. it makes mi wana apply more cuz i feel as if the lotion is gone.. as for how moisturizing it is, i think i have to try a few more time.. but as of now,  I’m quite liking this two Biotherm product!!

20120607-233413.jpg

Next from Kiehl’s.. Midnight Recovery Concentrate(left blue).. i heard many good review about this working wonders..

In the day, your skin is busy fending off environmental aggressors like free radicals. At night, the skin gets a breather to repair the damages, as there are few environmental aggressors to detract it from its healing process. The formulations of Midnight Recovery Concentrate and Midnight Recovery Eye enhance the natural repair and regeneration process at night, when your skin is at its maximum ability to absorb nourishing ingredients. This dream team is formulated with a complex blend of botanical oils including Squalane, Evening Primrose and essential oils including  therapeutic Lavender which are rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9 to biologically replicate skin’s natural lipids and dramatically restore skin overnight. Both products are free from artificial fragrances, parabens and mineral oil, nourishing your whole face in the most natural way possible.

Enuff said! i think i will try this to9!!!! *can’t wait*

This effective toner is formulated with select herbal extracts to gently cleanse and soothe normal to oily skin types without the use of alcohol or harsh synthetic drying agents. Our Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner may be used to soothe and improve problem areas.
