This trove has got you covered!! Cleaner, toner, moisturizer, sun block!

Chia seed has grown popularity among ladies! Not only it’s good as a food (rich in omega 3 fatty acids!) it’s also good for our skin too! If you didn’t know it helps to retain moisture! Moisture is very important to our skin/body!

When our skin have enough moisture, it will not generate excess sebum causing our skin to be oily and that’s clean and clear~! (That’s my understand!)

When you’ve got your face covered, you need to pamper your body too! Body wash and body lotion from Etude House!

This series is formulated with milk protein, ivy extract and the petit bijou fragrance to soften and relieve stressed skin! Smells good and like baby powder! It’s also good to know that the formula is free of sulphates, parabens and ethanol..

Clinique’s top selling moisturizer, Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, is lightweight cream-gel plumps skin with 24-hour hydration.. Importantly, it’s suitable for all skin type!

The Brighten My Day All-Over Skin Perfecting Brightening And Hydrating Emulsion features a lightweight and oil-free formula that makes sure skin feel fresh and well-moisturised. It is also designed to refine and tighten pores while reducing the appearance of dark spots and redness.

Korean beauty brand CNP Laboratory’s new Invisible Peeling Booster is a leave-on formula that gently exfoliates skin and keeps it smooth and hydrated.

Exfoliating is an important part of our skincare routine! it’s only when u exfoliate, dead skin cells will be gone and your skin will look brighter and absorb nutrients better! You know what, don’t be lazy!

IMG_5380

Illamasqua Matte Veil is the matte version of Hydra veil. I had used hyrda veil before and find it not too bad.. For matte lover, I’m sure you’ll love this!

An oil control primer, Matte Veil preps the skin to create the perfect matte base for make-up application. It’s mattifying cream-gel formula absorbs excess oil whilst retaining the skin`s natural moisture levels, providing a silky, soft finish. Enhancing make-up longevity, Matte Veil also controls shine throughout the day and into the evening, keeping skin feeling healthy and balanced..

Last but not least, one of my favourite makeup remover!

Hydrabio H2O is the 1st and only dermatological micellar water perfectly compatible with the skin. Its fatty acid esters, the constituent elements of micelles, are similar to the phospholipids of the skin cell membranes and naturally help rebuild the skin’s hydrolipidic film. Thus, Hydrabio H2O guarantees unrivalled tolerance and comfort for optimum make-up removing efficacy. Moreover, its Aquagenium® exclusive biological patent retrains the skin to activate its natural moisturising capacities by stimulating the production of aquaporins, water channels in the skin, and retain the water it needs to be balanced.

December Trove – Shhh.. It’s Victoria’s Secrets!

Hello Hellooo~ It time again for Vanity Trove!! everytime i receive VT it means the month is ending sooon! time flies!! Now let seee what we have here~~20121124-195156.jpg

 

Philosoply.. in one of the previous trove, i had got Hope in a Jar and Purity samples.. and this month’s trove, i’ve got even moreee.. looking at it, im in fact more keen in using the Microdelivery Peel (which comes in a 2-steps sample pack).

20121124-195207.jpg

 

Next in the queue, we have samples from belif..

20121124-195214.jpg

 

from cleanser to toner to moisturizer to mask to blah blah blah.. its basically your routine regimes! I’m quite confident in Belief.. they have very good products! i had tried their Hydra Sebum Control Essence before and was very satisfied!

So a lil history about belif.. you can visit their site to read up more..! (Just click pic to proceed)

 

20121124-195223.jpg

 

Alright, coming next are masksss! Masks from Sexy Look and Beauty Buffet!

One thing i like about Sexy Look mask is that they can really cover your whole face to chin area.. why? because they have ear hooks that can secure you mask in place and lets your neck get supple too!! V V face on the way!!!!

 

20121124-195232.jpg

Call me a moutain tortoise.. but seriously i haven tried any of beauty buffet mask yet!! i believe my girl friend would have tried!! she’s a beauty freak! =P

20121124-195238.jpg

20121124-195244.jpg

 

OK this is what I’m pretty excited about!! CIRACLE’s Goodbye Blackheads!!!! this is a cotton mask which helps in the removal of sebum, blackheads, whiteheads, sebum and dirt, especially in the presence of blocked pores. Each Blackhead Off Cotton Mask is made with 100% cotton and is soaked in natural plant extracts such as Witch Hazel, Peppermint, Sage and Mistletoe, to help draw toxin out of the skin.

Directions

1. Open one packet and place a Blackhead Off Cotton Mask on your nose. Spread mask evenly with your fingers.

2. Leave mask on for at least 15 minutes.

3. Remove. Wipe away exposed sebum, blackheads and whiteheads with a clean cotton swab or pad.

4. Follow up with toner if you wish.

This is similar to Skinmiso’s pore pack but a little more affordable?? Just S$32.90 for 20 pcs of mask and its only a 1-step thing to get rid your enemies!!! (Skinmiso cost S$27.90 and its quite troublesome in a way – see post HERE & HERE)

 

20121124-195250.jpg

 

Next, DrGL.’s Collagen Essence! Heard many hooha about it but this is the first time i touched this brand!! So what does “GL” denotes? It’s Georgia Lee!

DrGL® is a range of custom skincare personally formulated for Asian skin types and climate by Dr Georgia Lee. Eschewing the mass for a carefully crafted selection of premium quality products, DrGL® offers the modern busy individual maximum efficacy, minimum fuss.

 

While her clinical experience gave her the confidence to start her very own skincare line, it was her personal experience that provided the final push. A serious allergic reaction resulted in blisters that covered the left side of her face, leaving her with persistent hyperpigmentation which only resolved after treatment with a cream that she customized for herself. While traumatic, this episode piqued her interest in skincare and motivated her to delve further into its development.

 

This Collagen Essence is suitable for even the most sensitive skin, this superbly hydrating formula penetrates deep within to deliver and retain moisture beyond skin’s surface. Lightweight texture keeps skin comfortable in hot and humid weather while still providing more than adequate hydration in drying winter conditions.

Guess how much does the regular 30ml size cost… $49.90?? NO! $99.90?? NOO! $149.90!?? NOOOO!!! It’s S$198!! Ok, so we have here a 10ml travel size.. *calculating* WOW! this 10ml is easily worth S$66!! Precious baby!!

20121124-195256.jpg

Had tried a pump on my hand and i think its pretty good. it’s like water/toner whatever u call it! Pretty fast absorption! and does not have sticky or oily after effect.. (no wonder it cost so much!)

Alright, ready for next product?? Well, next product is actually a repeated one! got the same thing in previous Trove.. it’s either this product is VERY GOOD or it’s some left over.. hmm.. you decide!

20121124-195320.jpg

 

Last month, i’ve got this same Ujene sample pack but.. have not started using yet. >_<

20121124-195325.jpg

 

OK! last thing… something that caught me off guard! Waxing Strips!! who would expect to see this!? LOL! ok or at least i din expect to see this.. for a moment i thot i’m being spied!! WHY?? because i’ve been looking for deals to get my underarm waxing done and the next moment *POOF* VT put a pack of waxing strip in my trove! Ain’t that.. MAGICAL?! hahahaha!

20121124-195348.jpg

 

But i hope this waxing strip is not too complicated to use!

20121124-195353.jpg

 

Ok.. So that’s the end of this month’s product.. No WAIT! one last one.. for this who have shared VT’s post, i believe would have rec’d a pm from her to choose the type of (fragrance) soap bar you like RIGHT!!?? There were 4 choice if i did not remember wrongly.. Original, Lavender, Spearmint and…… one i forgot! >_<

Hahaha.. So here’s the SOAP!! I chose Spearmint Sparkle!

20121124-195305.jpg

Spearmint Sparkle refreshes & stimulates the skin’s natural balance. It also soothes and heals acne! Suitable for combination to oily skin!

Lavender Heaven is a sweet fresh scent with a calming, healing and restorative effect. The perfect fragrance for people with skin problems such as eczema & psoriasis. Suitable for normal to dry skin!

Original Cleansing Bar cleanses the skin, encourages its capacity for self-repair, hydrates & promotes elasticity. Suitable for most sensitive skin, even those allergic to essential oils since none are added!

20121124-195310.jpg

Cute little soap bar.. ^_^

20121124-195400.jpg

Good night readers!! (Good night 72!!!)

August Bellabox – I Love Singapore

First thing first… Happy Belated National Day Singapore!!!

So here’s my Bellabox!! But before that…I’m disappointed with Courex! Got an email from Bellabox before national day saying that our boxes are on the way to us! Yippie…!! I waited and waited.. No sign of my box & it’s already been more than 5 days! 7 days to be exact.

So I decided to go online to check out the courier status. And to my HORROR (!), the status was…… “delivery unsuccessful – no one home” on 11 Aug!!! What is this!?!? There was no call to me from Courex!! Not even a delivery notice was found!!

I later wrote a FEEDBACK to Bellabox (cc Courex). Excuses are all I see from Courex! Was told that they try contacting my several time but couldn’t get hold of mi. (seriously, my cell was on 24/7 but I don’t see any missed call!) they even said there should be a note left behind and a lady from courex even told me I should have rec’d an SMS informing me of the delivery unsuccessful..

I only got one word for them.. Bullsh*t. If u din call means u din call. Stop being so defensive.

If this is going to happen again I think I might as well cancel all my subscription since I don’t feel being a valued member.. I can save some $$$ too if I cancelled them! I wonder where did that malay courier gone too.. Sigh..

A bit reluctant to finish up this post after this shitty incident.. But still, here’s my box..

20120819-205625.jpg

20120819-205633.jpg

It’s the Bella bag again! But a little different from the previous one. This is without drawstring.. Just a bag.

Erm.. I forgot to snap a pic of everything.. So will upload it next time!

20120819-205645.jpg

Philosophy’s sample.. U know, i’ve been eyeing this Hope in a Jar since Sephora published in their FB.. It sounds as if it can really give me HOPE! haha thos i haven try buy below are just some more pics to show u..

20120819-205701.jpg

20120819-205717.jpg

20120819-205710.jpg

 

Update on 29 August 2012: tried a few times.. like printed, it feels really like oil-free..so far so good but.. Like purity, it has this not very fragrance smell. mi no like. lucky i did not do an impulse buy at Sephora the other day! If u asked mi, i will say there are other better products out there that works the same but smells better! at least i feel more comfy using those.

20120819-205728.jpg

20120819-205737.jpg

and this kinda looks not bad!! hahahaha!

Update on 28 August 2012: This is nightmare.. this purity smell can kills! it did remove my makeup but i din apply a lot so i can’t comment if it is really good or just happen that my makeup is light. but still, i can’t get over the strong chemicated-like smell… i.. will not use this again seriously.. 

20120819-215802.jpg

20120819-215820.jpg

Next, Loreal Youth Code! i think will pass this to my mom..but again.. i wouldnt want my mom to look younger than mi!!! >_<

Update on 29 August 2012: I’ve tried this for about a week or so? hmm.. quite happy w the result. it din really make my face wrinkles-free like a baby but i can see that fine lines are now reduced! will definitely recommend this to ladies who wish to say bye bye to fine lines!!

20120819-215854.jpg

Nothing much to elaborate about this.. China Glaze Polish (80703 Senorita Bonita). not my color.

20120819-215951.jpg

20120820-171713.jpg

Another Enavose product. After using so many, i think only the hydrating mask is good. Together in this month’s box, there’s also a $5 gift voucher for Probiotics Exfoliaance Gommage.

Update on 27 August: Used this today! Mixed feeling.. hahaha..it feels so “nothing fascinating” about it when i press out a amount on my hand. However, as i massage on my face for few seconds (about 20-30 secs??) “ahhh..” is what came out from my mouth after that.. the flakes of dead skin starts appearing! SO i massage even moreee (hoping to see more flakes! – probably not! more flakes = more dead skin!?? gosh..) After im done massaging, i wash away with water and i goes “OOOH!!” again! (what now??) to my surprise, my skin feels soft and SMOOTH! really SMOOTH! if only i can use this everyday.. can i??

I have taken some pic of the product that was tested on my hand but i don have it now. Will upload it when i have access.. stay tune!

20120820-171734.jpg

20120820-171742.jpg

Besides that, there’s also Anna Sui Gift Voucher… and… 20120820-171749.jpg

Philosophy’s Exclusive gift.
