May Trove – Floral Notes

It’s time for Vanity Trove again!!! Yippie!!! This month’s trove is pretty my type.. Hahaha!

20130423-231643.jpg

Many items and useful items!! Lets start from the first thing first..

20130423-231651.jpg

Dr.Ci:Labo Aqua Collagen Gel! This is a 5 in 1 skincare!!! Let me try to find my old post which I had done bef (had rec’d the same sample in Jan Trove)!!

I will update on this again!! If you’re getting excited, u can try to do a search on my blog and it should bring u to somewhere near.. (Haha..) Alright, here is the LINK! Click to read more.. 😀

20130423-231705.jpg

20130423-231713.jpg

Sebamed Feminine Intimate Wash. This is a soap-free feminine intimate wash for gentle external cleansing with a pH value of 3.8 specific for the microflora balance. 100% soap and alkali free with natural organic derivative tenside complex for extra mild cleansing. Specifically formulated and clinically tested to meet the needs of feminine hygiene for the very sensitive skin of the genital are.

As i read on to find what the ingredient.. i saw…”Sodium Laureth Sulfate”! I understand that some consumers doesn’t like SLS.. WHY? Because laboratory studies found that long-term ingestion of SLES (SLS) can cause cancer, tumors, kidney and liver damage in rats. In humans, inhalation has been associated with headaches, vertigo, and eye, nose, throat, and lung irritation. Additionally, some people have an allergic reaction that causes extreme scalp irritation and hair loss.

I’m not trying to scare u (LOL), you can do a google search and find many related info on SLS.. HERE is one of the site which i find it quite useful..

20130423-231719.jpg

Next, we have BATH SALT from Aqua Rine!!! I’m so happy when i see this! Do you still remember one of my recent post on Bath Salt?? i said i wanted to try the Peach Aroma one and.. tadaaaa!! hahahaha! Altho i had the Rose already but i don’t mind sharing with my mom!

You can click HERE to check out my previous post!

Update as of 27 Apr 2013: Had tried the peach aroma salt! It smell really like peach! Sweet! But I think I still prefer flora.. The sweetness of the peach makes me feel as if the ants will kidnap me when I slp!! Flora (rose/sakura) aroma salt is much soothing and ease my slp! LOVE!!

20130423-231729.jpg

Next up, we have Go 60 Treatment Masque!

Any one heard of Go 60? Go 60 is a spa boutique (facial, slimming, spa) that uses the concept of “60”! So its like 60 mins of treatment or S$60 for a treatment or even $60 for 2-pax (promotion)

Read from their site, seems like they’ve stripped their price structure right down to a single flat fee of $60 for any service. That means no more price uncertainty!

Best part, it is stated in their website that there is no hidden cost or hard sell!! Now I can do my treatment at peace of mind! No more “peer pressure” and burnt a hole in my pocket for purchasing unwanted packages!!

20130423-231742.jpg

Have I not talked about my masque?? Hahaha! The masque I’ve got is a Treatment Masque. I can’t find anything online about it so all I can share now is that this masque is selling at S$60 for 5 pcs! That’s $12 each!

I’m gona share more about it after I used this..

Oh and…. That’s not all!! VT subscribers have got extra treat!! Complimentary treatment to be used by 15 June!!! That’s worth $60 already!!!

20130423-231756.jpg

Last but not least, we’ve samples from Sampar!!! This round’s sample is different from what I’ve got previously!!

20130423-231853.jpg

We have Nocturnal Line-Up Mask, Street A Peel, Ultra Hydrating Fluid and Glamour Shot Eyes!!

20130423-231858.jpg

Elaborated after 24 months of research, Nocturnal Line-Up Mask offers the 1st overnight mask to reclaim youth, boost collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
A sophisticated alliance of advanced technology and over 90% of natural elements.

This fresh and milky fluid exposes the skin’s softness, awakening your face’s sleeping beauty and making you irresistible in the eyes of others.

In 1 minute, this multi-action glamour revealer erases dark circles, brightens the dark areas around the eyes and blurs under-eye wrinkles and fine lines. As if that wasn’t enough, its formula enriched in hyaluronic acid offers a long-term and lasting anti-wrinkles action.

Ingredient: MIB Complex helps eliminate puffiness and dark circles, thanks to its anti-oedematous, anti-inflammatory and veinotonic properties. HQA Microlens, newest generation of soft focus, fill in furrows and lines so that light is reflected off the skin homogeneously, visually erasing imperfections and illuminating the eye area. Oat Extract provides an optimal and immediate lifting effect. Encapsulated Hyaluronic Acid enables targeting of wrinkles and fine lines from within and plumps the eye contour for a long-term anti-wrinkles action. Urban Advance Complex, a powerful alliance of 3 active ingredients (shea butter serum, mint endorphin and probiotic sugar), acts as an anti-oxidant shield, neutralizing any cutaneous imbalances linked to pollution, strengthens the skin’s natural defenses and shocks the skin back to life on a cellular level.

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…..

20120802-205422.jpg

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!!

20120802-223234.jpg

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!

Now that we’ve seen all i’ve got in Aug Trove.. If you are keen in getting one for yourself or ur friend, feel free to click this LINK to subscribe/order.. 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~!

Let’s look fwd to September’s FALL IN LOVE!!
