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!

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..

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…

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

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*

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
  • Reduce your risk of heart disease
  • Improve your athletic performance
  • Manage diabetes
  • Achieve optimum health
  • Control blood glucose levels
  • Tackle syndrome X

Are High fibre Keeps the digestive system healthy. Eating a diet low in fibre can contribute to many disorders, including:

  • Constipation – small, hard and dry faecal matter that is difficult to pass
  • Haemorrhoids – varicose veins of the anus
  • Diverticulitis – small hernias of the digestive tract caused by long term constipation
  • Irritable bowel syndrome – pain, flatulence and bloating of the abdomen
  • Overweight and obesity – carrying too much body fat. In many cases, people who are overweight or obese have been shown to lose significant amounts of excess body fat simply by increasing the amount of dietary fibre, especially soluble fibre, in their daily diet Fibrous foods are often bulky and, therefore, filling. They also tend to be low in fat
  • Coronary heart disease – a narrowing of the arteries due to fatty deposits.
  • Diabetes – a condition characterised by too much glucose in the blood.
  • Colon cancer – cancer of the large intestine

Are High fibre Keeps the digestive system healthy. Eating a diet low in fibre can contribute to many disorders, including:

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.

Wheat free

Many people today are being diagnosed as having an allergy to wheat protein. Slim Secrets bars are wheat free for this reason.

Slim Secrets BARS have received Halal Accreditation from The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils Inc.

All these can be found in their webby HERE. I think it’s good to take a look in there as its not only about their product, they have some Health Secrets (which are impossible for me to list all down here) to share too!!

20121223-160331.jpg

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.. S$75 for 50g and S$150 120g! This Aqua-Collagen-Gel is more suited for normal/oily/combination skin and those with sagging face & aging sign concerns.

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!

Aqua-Collagen-Gel BI・HA・KU (S$140 for 120g) which is also an all-in-one gel – Suitable for bnormal/oily/combination skin and those with dark spot/skin dullness concern!

Now are you tempted to try one too??? Head to their webby HERE and register to get a 1 week trial (10g) now or head to Takashimaya S.C. to check out their counter! 😀
