The Little Black Beauty Box X Tangs !!

Are you aware that The Little Black Beauty Box has changed partner?

Yup, it’s no more Robinson but Tangs! Oh well, to me, as long as it continue to bring in new/interesting/amazing samples for its subscribers, I don’t really care who’s the partner. Of course, the price must be justifiable! LOL..

So today, I proudly presents my first Tangs x LBBB ! Quite happy with my new LBBB!

But before i go further, I have to apologise!! All images that you are gonna see here, the color is a bit “cool”.. It looks totally fine on my cam but somehow when I transferred them to my iPhone and upload them here.. hmm… colour runs?

Anyway, I had tried my best to adjust the color to as true as possible but.. oh well.. bear with it!

20140622-131216-47536205.jpg

Ain’t you excited to seeeee so many goodies in a lil box like this!? Looks like they have hunt for variety of samples for us.. From skin care to hair care to makeup to fragrance! Wow~ How thoughtful!

I will not be going through every single item in my box but still I will show you picture of it..

First thing that caught my attention is….  BELIF! For the first time I actually see one sample box includes a decent travel size of Belif product! Best part, this is the cleanser that I would usually get when I wanted Belif!

20140627-145148-53508746.jpg

This cleansing foam uses a foaming action to softly wash away impurities from your skin. Formulated with Soapwort, Sweet Flag and Wormwood to remove toxins, this cleansing foam produces clean skin without dryness after washing.

Soapwort, rich with vitamin C and natural foaming agents, cleanses the skin gently. It has been used instead of soap for centuries. Sweet Flag, has appealed to women for generations, is known to make hair and skin beautiful, silky and smooth. Wormwood, possesses breakout-prevention properties and excels at removing toxins.

The other 2 Belif products are sachet masks pack..

20140622-131349-47629158.jpg

The next item here I think there’s no need to further explained! It’s so popular even my mom knows about it.. Yup, It’s Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX..

Clarins Shaping Facial Lift Total V Contouring Serum

20140627-145149-53509705.jpg

This is better than the face lifting cream from Bioessence, IMO.. This doesn’t give me a TIGHT feeling and doesn’t feel heavy for my skin.. Most importantly, you can see result!

Guerlain Foundation

20140622-131518-47718339.jpg

Guerlain invents the most perfect second skin: Lingerie de Peau. This intangible foundation becomes one with the skin like a second sensual covering to make it more beautiful than ever. Its secret: the Bio-Fusion micro-mesh, an unprecedented combination of smoothing and shaping stretch fibres and natural linen and silk fibres in complete affinity with the skin. The foundation glides on like a silk stocking. The “little nothing” becomes everything…

20140622-131518-47718833.jpg

Sublimely transparent, the complexion becomes as soft and radiant as silk. The curves of the face are tightened and imperfections are erased. The nine shades of the range are so skin-fusing and natural that they leave no visible colour on the face, simply a glowing, long-wearing tone that leaves the skin looking natural. Regular size Lingerie de Peau is about 30ml pump bottle and has SPF 20 – PA+. Though not the strongest sun protection but better than nothing!

20140622-131519-47719358.jpg

20140622-131519-47719815.jpg 20140622-131520-47720256.jpg

Overall, looks quite natural on my skin and doesn’t feels very thick.. Shall update here again when I tried them out on my face some day!

StyleXSanta Box

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Today I’m gonna share with you my December Little Black Beauty Box – StyleXSanta Box!! But before that, pls note that LBBB subscription has been amended.. It’s no longer at $19.90 (or was it $19.99?). The new price is S$21.90.

Initially I thought it was because of the One Year Anniversary and Christmas season that’s why the box got more expensive.. You know more expensive some how relates to more premium products or something special for that box? Although the box that I had subscribed to so far (since the price increase) hasn’t disappoint me but I got it all wrong. LOLX! This price increase is not due to festive seasons. It’s permanent.

起价了啦! T_T

So with the price increase am I gonna still subscribe to LBBB? YESSS, of course!! It’s juz a $2 increase and I have yet to open up a box with disappointment! The quality is still there. The quantity too! (It’s still sad that good things no longer comes cheap!! Below $20 and more than $20 makes a big diff leh~ although its juz $2! Consumer mindset!!)

So what have I got myself this CHRISTMAS!??

20131225-145309.jpg

I was just praising LBBB and this is what I got for my StyleXSanta box?!??! *heartache*

Actually a second look ……………

20131225-145319.jpg

Not bad what!?!! Although the items come in SMALL SIZE but at least they’re not sample sachets and I have branded makeup products to play with!!!

To start off, let’s take a look at….
20131225-145345.jpg

Origins Plantscription Anti-aging Serum!

In just 4 weeks nature’s next generation power plant noticeably reduces wrinkle length & depth. Without the irritation. Visibly helps improve the vertical fret lines between your eyes and the stubborn furrows across your forehead. Youthful “bounce” is revived. Skin is clinically firmer, smoother and more lifted-looking. And with continued use, results improve. What will nature think of next.

Best of all, any skin type is suitable for this!

20131225-145359.jpg

Origins Make A Difference Plus + Rejuvenating Serum!

Help empower skin to rebound from ageing dehydration. Help restore youthful looking smoothness to reduce the appearance of fine, dry lines. This plant serum with rejuvenating Rose of Jericho, Trehalose and Sea Haricots helps keep skin happily hydrated. Skin looks and feels dewy, healthy and revitalized.

Guess what!? This is just right for me because it’s got combination dry skin! My type!

20131225-145407.jpg

SOMETHING my mom will loveee!! Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair! This is the star product of Estée Lauder, is it not??

Revolutionary technology! The power to change your skin – Every night!! This serum is a major innovation. For the first time, this breakthrough serum promotes a natural nighttime purification process—vital to younger-looking skin.

While you sleep, your skin goes through dramatic changes to repair the day’s damage.Two of the most important changes are purification and synchronization.

Purification: a natural nighttime repair process that helps remove cellular debris that can accelerate premature signs of aging.

Synchronization: a natural process that ensures cellular repair happens at exactly the right time.

Wake up to more beautiful skin – every day! Tested and proven. New Advanced Night Repair addresses all key signs of visible aging. Effective for every ethnicity.

  • Lines & wrinkles looks significantly reduced – More than 75% of women felt that their skin looked more youthful – in just 4 weeks.
  • Skin feels smoother, hydrated & stronger – 82% of women felt their skin was immediately hydrated.
  • See a radiant, more translucent & even toned look – 83% of women felt their skin looked healthier, fresher & more rested – in just 4 weeks.

After sharing so much, I now change my mind! Maybe I should keep this for myself!! If that’s not enough to make u feel WOW.. read on!

Lack of sleep – is it aging your skin too fast? New research says – IT IS! For the first time, a major independent research study shows lack of sleep can accelerate visible skin aging.

The Unprecedented Sleep Study: Estée Lauder commissioned a major independent sleep study in collaboration with University Hospitals Case Medical Center—a world-renowned center of excellence in dermatological research.

The Surprising Results: Lack of sleep can not only accelerate premature signs of skin aging, but affects skin’s natural repair processes. Clinical data shows that poor quality sleep is associated with:

  • Acceleration of fine lines.
  • Increased vulnerability to dryness and dehydration.
  • Uneven skintone.

I think i not only have to sleep more from now onwards, I gotta use this precious baby before I jump onto my bed too!

20131225-145416.jpg

Now for some eye opener!! M.A.C. Zoom Lash! Major drama. Lasts all day. Creamy, velvety formula builds density and conditions. Feels light, supple. Ultra-sculpted brush has three-sided fibres to embrace and separate each lash, hugging every curve. Coats in one stroke from root to tip. No smudging.

20131225-145445.jpg

Very packed bristle! I can already feel my lash is gonna be very dramatic!

Below are my lashes without any mascara!

20131225-145507.jpg

20131225-145516.jpg

I kinda like my lashes at times.. geez! >_< They’re very .. erm.. dense? LOL

So after applying the Zoom Lash below is how it looks like!

20131225-145527.jpg

20131225-145535.jpg

It’s more defined and looks darker!

20131225-145614.jpg

Not sure if it’s my imagination, it seems to have lengthened my lash a little!

20131225-145856.jpg

So the above pic with my eyes closed is a comparison for you to see “before/after” effect. Can you tell which has mascara on?

Ans: My left eye (which is the eye on the right that you’re looking at now). Kinda obvious~

20131225-145906.jpg

Another thing.. this mascara doesn’t feel very clumpy and its easy to achieve the volumized look. Use a lash curler before applying mascara so that your lashes will stay curled for a longer time..

I wore this mascara since noon till midnight (MERRY CHRISTMAS!) and it shows no sign of smudging! No gothic look at all~ hahah! Waterproof? OF COURSE!! Removing is not hard at all tooooo….

S$29 (approximately) for a mascara like this? WHY NOT!!

20131225-150007.jpg

Time to remove your makeup after party? Try this M.A.C. Pro Eye Makeup Remover!

A mega-effective remover that lifts off every look – from delicate to dramatic – without smudges, tears or aggression. Pro-quality, yet decidedly gentle; calms, hydrates and soothes skin with cucumber extract. Makeup can be immediately reapplied. A favourite of busy models. I forgot that I have this in my stash thus didn’t use it to remove my zoom lash when I got home! Darn! I will review this again (if I remember) when I start using it!

Done with the eye? Now let’s check out something for our lips!!

20131225-150128.jpg 20131225-150144.jpg

Lip Gloss from Bobby Brown! YOU KNOW WHAT, I am allergic to BB’s product! T_T oh man!! I will get rashes if I apply anything on my skin. My lips will feel mild numbness when I apply lip color on my lips.. The more you love the more you can’t get to use it.. *sobs* (I’m not trying to scare you.. oops!)

This color seems a bit shimmerish neutral/natural brown color. I thought it will make my lips look dark.. but…….

20131225-150159.jpg

It really look very natural on my lips!

*I’m risking my “life” to put this on just to show you the result okay!!* hee.. >_<

20131225-151409.jpg

20131225-151423.jpg

You can see my chapped lips looks fine after I applied the lip gloss! Totally good cover up! WAHAHAHAHA… too bad I’m allergic to BB! aww.. Don’t reminds me of that…

NEXT NEXT NEXT~~~

20131225-151529.jpg

Moisturizing Gel from Clinique for combination oily to oily skin types.

The oil-free moisture “drink” developed by Clinique’s dermatologists to maintain optimal moisture balance for skins comfortable in the cheeks but oily in the T-zone or oily all over. Oil-free formula softens, smooths, improves.

This comes in a travel size if you have noticed in the first two pic.. guess I can keep this for my upcoming getaway!

20131225-151446.jpg 20131225-151508.jpg

OK, this is totally awesome… Been hearing soooo much hoo-ha about it and finally my chance to get my hands on it!

LaMer’s Moisturizing Cream (Crème de La Mer) 

Born from the sea, the legendary Crème de la Mer has the power to transform the skin. In a short time, firmness improves, lines, wrinkles and the look of pores become less visible, skin looks virtually ageless. Even the driest complexions are renewed and rejuvenated. With the nutrient-rich Miracle Broth™, the heart of La Mer’s profound powers of transformation, skin is immersed in moisture, sensitivities soothed, radiance restored.

The Miracle Broth™ in Crème de la Mer is suspended in an extraordinary formula. The secret to activating its renewing power and enjoying its profound benefits lies in a soothing ritual. Crème de la Mer must be warmed for a few seconds between the fingers until it becomes translucent, then pressed gently into the skin.

20131225-151515.jpg 20131225-151522.jpg

This cream is really solid cream.. hahaha… It’s not those light weight runny kinda moisturizer.. It’s more like Hazeline Snow cream kinda texture but better of course! Even it’s price is…. as HIGH-END as the product itself.. make a guess?? Or perhaps you already know.. 1oz for $155! 16.5oz for *drumroll* $1900!!

-faint- I must appreciate this 0.11oz I’ve got here..

20131225-151540.jpg

Next up is something I’ve been wanting to try. DKNY Be Delicious Skin, I call it “green apple”! One of my friend been using this since I don’t know went…

The scent is not as sour as green apple please! It’s a sophisticated blend of apples, exotic flowers and woods creates a fresh, juicy scent that can only be called delicious.

Now, save the best for last??? HAHAHA! Now, finally something for my beau to share!!

20131225-151557.jpg

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!!

20130123-220132.jpg

20130123-220138.jpg

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)

20130123-220312.jpg

Remember to get it from the promoter…!! That’s the only “exclusive” thing about it..

You can also read HERE about my short experience with Origins..

Mini Treats with Origins & Sampar

Ah haa.. how’s ya holiday!? This long weekend is a good one for mi! made arrangement to visit Phillip Wain, Origins & Sampar with my girlfriend.. Nice experience tho some things went “missing”.. =P

Our first stop!! Phillip Wain….

A very simple look before u enter Phillip Wain.. couldn’t take more pic when i head in cuz my mobile was in the locker.. our appointment was 11.30am & 12.00pm but somehow i don’t know why they only attend to us and changed our appointment to 12.00pm and 12.30pm. Are you thinking why we’re taking 2 time slots? cuz they have only 1 M6 Intergral LPG machine, so can only do it one at a time.. Oh did i mention? we were here because we have a VanityTrove treats.. Subscribe to July’s box and get a complimentary tummy tamer session worth S$110 for 30 minutes..

After we changed into their robe, we head str8 to the M6 treatment room.. My experience..? PAIN! hahaaa the suction was.. arggghh pain.. but it indeed made mi lost 2cm+ on my abdominal and waist!! WOW~!! my friend’s experience… ? PAIN as well~!! hahahhaha!!! but she lost some cm too..!

After our session, we are free to use the facilities there.. steam room.. gym room.. little cafe.. The beauty consultant who provide all the info to me was quite hard selling which i don like.. had told her i’m rushing for appointment yet she wants me to make a decision “now” to sign up for membership..  It’s not expensive till i’ll drop my pants.. but i just don like hard selling.. (and the lady did not give me this tissue!! LOL!! got this from my friend instead..) If you are interested in joining as member, visit HERE to find out more or HERE to apply your 1 day free exercise pass!

Membership is really not that expensive.. Depending which period u signed up.. Membership can cost as low as S$130 per month to S$180 per month.

S$130 – Phillip Wain 21st Anniversary Promo.

S$180 – One for One Promo (that means its S$180 for two month)

Best part, all classes are free of charge! as long as u have the time, u can just walk in to attend them, UNLIMITED.. Gym usage unlimited too..

BTW, they not only have exercise program, they also do facial and massage..! and for the MOST IMPORTANT point… this is a LADIES ONLY center! Feel privileged for being a woman!

By the time we ended our session, it’s almost…. 2.15pm.. see.. she’d been hard selling to me for soo long.. LOL! Anyway.. aft Phillip Wain treat, we headed to Origins at Centerpoint for our Mini Facial.

Origins counter is just at the entrance of Robinson.. easy to find..

This is the Plantscription series product that were newly launched.. With Vanity Trove treat, i got the chance to experience it.. but again, u can too.. Just give them a call to book your free mini facial now..! Visit HERE to find out more!!

How was mini facial conducted? Well, very openly.. but no worries, not much ppl will be bothered with what u’re doing.. hahaha!! 

These are the products that were used on my face.. i particularly like the face scrub.. it really smoothen my skin LOTS~ i think this is a great product!! and i like the sunblock too.. it brighten ur complexion and has this sweet citrus scent..

But one thing keeps bothering me.. i thot by showing them the VT card, i’ll get my one day supply of Plantscription anti-aging duo?? but i did not get anything… hmm.. 😦

So i called up (while writing this blog) and Angie who did facial for me was kind enuff to keep one for me (it’s actually a eye cream if im not wrong..).

After our mini facial, we went looking for SAMPAR.. it’s a little counter that will often be overlooked i think.. Again.. i thot she will do a 1 minute quick fix treatment for me but turns out, her first reaction was only to open the cardboard and pass mi the mini glamour shots eye. Also, i brought all 3 samples that i got from Vanity Trove and wanted to check out more about it (like how to use, how to better enhance the effect, etc) but her explanation really makes me goes like.. “y do u need a promoter here? might as well put one poster size instruction manual by your counter, it works equally good..”

“for this XXX, u use after u wash ur face..” – After i wash my face, i use many other product know.. toner.. moisturizer.. eye cream.. serum.. blah blah blah.. so XXX is to replace which step or bef/aft which step.. sigh..

You think i can’t read? at least educate your user what your products are all about & what it acts as (ie: mask? serum? primer?)  Kinda sad with the service attitude. Probably will not patronised again..

At the end of our treats day, we went shopping and eating beautifully!!! Yeah…!

August Trove – Rocket Science

Ah ha! It’s time again for the once a month thingy!! Ah.. Don’t worry! It’s not menses time.. It’s Vanity Trove time!!!

This month’s trove was a bit late.. And with the courier service “mis-delivery” it’s even later.. What actually happen? Ah.. Long story.. But since u insist to know, I will share a bit! (hahahaha!!)

VT had announced (on FB) that trove will be late but will still be arriving bef Aug! I’m waiting with my neck longer than giraffe’s! And on 31st morning, while I was out in the morning, the courier came! Shucks!! Y no call me!?

I called courex back to arrange for re-delivery anytime that day as I’ll be home WHOLE DAY! But they said the earliest date for re-delivery is 2Aug! Man~~! At the same time I checked w them izit a norm that courier guy not calling bef delivery? And guess wat, they said only upon request then they will call bef delivery.. (thn wat’s e diff w this courier and Singpost Registered Mail??) So I decided to drop VT an email.. With VT’s reply I’m sure we think alike! Courex should call before delivery! That is the norm! What is Mr. Courex (i’m not mentioning name but I’m keeping the delivery notification w his name) doing?? Where is the good service courex USED TO have??

Sigh…..

Anyway, here’s my trove! Kinda weird to see a pack of sth taped outside the Trove.. Did they forgot to put it in or was it an extra due to the delay??
20120802-205438.jpg

Plenty of fun stuff!!! Quite happy with this month’s trove as it doesn’t have facial foam, toner & moisturizer anymoreeee!! Yippie!!

20120802-205509.jpg

20120802-205719.jpg

Here here!!! The culprit that makes this trove soo heavy!! Hahaha!! Brands Innershine Essence!! One grape seed extract and one prune!

Just tried the grape seed extract.. WAH !! I feel as if I will hv diabetic on the spot! Hahahah!! So sweet so thick!! But the aftertaste is so yummy! Hahaha… A lil sourish but not to the extend u will goes >_

20120802-221644.jpg

Here is the apple of my eye!! This shower gel smell sooooooo nice! It made mi feel like I’m showering in some 5 stars hotel!!! I used it this morning and I can still sense the fragrance lingering around mi when I’m in office for almost half a day already!! If it is cost effective, I might consider getting a regular size!?? Hiak hiak hiak!!! Heartz!!

20120802-223245.jpg

Next next!! Eye therapy mask~ planned to try it tmr… Shall update over the weekend!! ^^V

UPDATE on 11 August 2012: here’s my very late update!! finally got my chance to use this eye mask last weeeek..!

 

Generous serum in a pack.. might not see it in my pic.. but its really der, just that the angle i took my pic is… ya BAD! 

 

The mask.. It’s a one whole pcs thingy!! now even the neglected area get some nourish!! hahaha.. i’m not sure to say its good or it’s bad.. 

Good because i feel less tired aft the masking session. i dono izit because i just took a power nap of 10mins or because it really makes mi feel better.. HAHA! & bad because other than that i don’t feel anything special..

Probably other type of mask may be better for mi.. geez~!

20120802-223305.jpg

Well well.. Here’s Origins anti aging serum!! Shall I keep this for myself or gv to mama?? Hmm…

20120802-230505.jpg

Can u guess what’s this without mi telling u?? It took mi half a min to figure it out! HAHAHAHAH!! I was still wondering if it’s some mask or something.. Who would guess oxypad is really a PAD!?!??

20120802-230607.jpg

20120802-230614.jpg

I….. struggle quite some time to finally decided to keep (post) this pic.. I will not open to show u as I mite be gvn warning for posting not suitable pic!! Lolx! This pack includes a regular day pad and 2 pantyliner?

It is said to have color warning ‘function’!! If the appears to be yellowish/greenish brown, u shd consult a gynae. If its pure yellow, u’re normal. Cool? U decide!

20120802-231452.jpg

Pure Beauty Bon Voyage Essential eye cream! I think my mom will love mi for sharing this with her!! She love this eye cream!! I had got this too from previous special trove!! The mild rose scent is really attractive!!

20120802-232838.jpg

This is Majorlica Majorca Eye Reset gel a.k.a. eye makeup remover.. this is good.. almost works the same like my Biore Jelly makeup remover. Just that this is specially for eye area.

20120802-232936.jpg

Just a little bit like this, smaller then 10c coin, i can remove my eyeliner (waterproof gel liner from Kate)..

20120802-232916.jpg

20120802-232926.jpg

PLEASE! pardon my *uncensored* untrimmed brow! i waiting for it to grow so that i can visit Erabelle! LOL!! (You’ll find out why Erabelle soon!)

Here.. see.. my eyeliner is gone without much effort.. Its a good eye makeup remover IMO. but since i already have my Biore jelly makeup remover, which can remove waterproof eye makeup too, i don’t see a point in why should i purchase this. But if u are those who needs specifically EYE makeup removal, i will recommend you to get it.. It’s quick and easy!

20120802-232949.jpg

SAMPAR!!! one of the featured items in August VT!

20120802-232958.jpg

20120802-233016.jpg

20120802-233007.jpg

20120802-233027.jpg

Seriously… I’m clueless in how to use them and what to do with them!! gosh~!! probably i can bring it down to the counter one day and check with them.. hearing them explain is better than reading from web!!

20120802-233050.jpg

20120802-233057.jpg

And they include a 1-minute quick fix session that comes w a complimentary mini Glamour Shot Eyes. I wonder if i can bring a friend down with me to experience this.. hmm.. but i know Origins can!!

20120802-233143.jpg

20120802-233157.jpg

Here’s my Origins  Mini Facial treat!! hmm it’s stated that exclusive for VT Member.. but i think what they meant was only the 1-day supply of Plantscription anti-aging duo. WHY? see below…

This mini facial is actually free – at all time! Above info was cropped from their official site.. anyone can just head down to Origins store for your mini facial if you had booked your appointment. So i guess it ain’t really that exclusive afterall.. (-___-)

20120802-233132.jpg

Next! here’s my Erabelle Erabrow Design promo voucher.. it’s almost 40% off..? so why not take this chance to drop by and experience the “everybody-say-good” brow trimming!

Other than these vouchers, VT also included a Zalora discount code for us.. 🙂

That’s all?? Of cuz not!! Remember there’s a Vanity treats by Watsons when u share some post by VT? Well.. Here’s the treat!!

• Neutrogena Deep Clean Brightening Mulberry Foaming Scrub
• Bioré Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover
• Skin 79 BB Cream

20120802-221701.jpg

20120802-232511.jpg

Now this is Neutrogena Deep Clean Brightening Mulberry Foaming Scrub!!! Tried it this evening. Hmm.. Seems quite mild? Feels like another foaming scrub, nth too special.. 🙂 but good to be able to try it..

20120802-224615.jpg

20120802-224623.jpg

Now this Biore Makeup remover ain’t something new to me.. Tried it preciously in one of the VT special edition trove and had bought a regular size one.. If u hvn try this, I’m telling u, YOU SHOULD! this is mad heaven!! See my previous post HERE and see how I fall in love with it!!!

20120802-230008.jpg

Skin 79 BB Cream I’m sure is nth new to u.. I wun elaborate much on this as I trust that you have at least used once or twice of this BB cream before.. Probably samples or from qoo10?

In short, Skin 79 have great BB Cream but I’m still loving my Ettusais one! Heee!!

20120802-233255.jpg

Alright.. summary of this month’s trove? LOVE! in fact i prefer this month’s. Tho last month is all about atas brand but giving my sth branded yet not useful to me seems pretty useless. (wah.. wat am i saying?) But its still good to have them as i can hold on to them till the day i ran out of any products (toner/moisturizer/facial foam) i can just grab one and try it!

August trove is still available but at a higher price (SGD30) now as it’d revealed and is consider batch 2. But nonetheless, Sept Troves are open for pre-oder at SGD25!!!! Grab yours now~!
