SKII from VanityTrove & BellaBox

This is the SKII Facial Treatment that i had rec’d in my July VanityTrove & July BellaBox.. are they spoiling us with choices?? >_<

On the left is from VT, a slightly bigger sample (20g) and on the right is from BB which is only 6g, good for 4-5 use i think??

and i wana say.. the smell of SKII reminds mi of…………………….

Hazeline Snow Moisturizing Cream.. 😀 and this, reminds me of my granny!

and next, u can see here is the Clear Lotion 20ml from VT and Essence 10ml from BB.

Of cuz essence is better but.. oh well.. lotion is good enuff for me too..

So now you tell me which is better?? hard to judge ya?? >_<

July Bellabox – Around The World

20120714-231013.jpg

Yahoooo!! Got my July Bellabox just bef the week ends..! Happy!! Happy!!!
So what do we have here for July??

20120714-231211.jpg

20120714-231232.jpg

Seems like a pretty heavy box right?? Totally excited for this! Now let start looking into the simple one first..! ^_^

20120714-232655.jpg

20120714-232707.jpg

Twistband!! If u haven heard of twistband then u are (slightly) outdated thn me!!! I got to know Twistband from Bellabox in Q2 this year!! It’s actually a hair band that u can use to tie ur hair without leaving tie mark! And they comes in colorful colours….!

Just a bit sad that my twistband had a little defect. But the thot of contacting Bellabox for an exchange made mi… (think twice) accept how it is! To email them is a headache! I wonder all this beauty boxes company.. Are they really sooo busy? Din they put into consideration for time like this? Ok, or at least not for exchange but more of.. customer service/enquiries? Every time when they are gg to have something big, reply seems to slow down even more (already so slow then become even slower..)

Had tried calling them to enquire some stuff but was asked to email them instead. But their reply always take sooo… sigh~

Ok I think I drift tooo much! Back to twistband! You can grab yours at Bellabox e-store HERE!

20120714-233427.jpg

Next, Jimmy Choo lil perfume (4.5ml)! Like that cute little granite-like bottle! Smell great too! But if I were to buy it at its full size I would think that they’re a bit on the costly side.. I’ll stick to my bvlgari! Hahaha!

PRICE? … 40/60/100ml for S$78/125/165

20120715-000610.jpg

Next next!! Skinmiso nose pack!! It’s a 2 step pore care that will remove blackheads and whiteheads! Looks interesting ya!!? I think I’ll try this out tmr??

PRICE? …10 sheets plus essence(15ml) for US$21.99

Review on 15 July evening:

20120715-195637.jpg

Wow.. This is not wat I expect yet not too different from what I expect too..

I expect something like Bioré pore pack? But looking at it’s packing I had expected it not to be like wat i expected! (gossh, am i confusing u??)

20120715-195650.jpg

As per its direction, I apply it on my nose for 10 mins. Initially, I feel a bit pinchy pain, quite annoying but bearable. Abt few sec ltr the pain is gone.

When I peel out the sheet, I dun see any whitehead/blackhead residue on my nose.. I had also used the Q-tip to exfoliate but… Nothing come out.. At that point I thought this was pretty useless..

20120715-195658.jpg

But still I decided to continue w the step 2!! This pack’s essence more gelish as compared to step 1 (watery)..

20120715-195706.jpg

I dono if I shd even post this pic cuz it looks the same as the previous one! But oh well…

Step 2 still has that pinchy pain feeling too but din last long.

20120715-195718.jpg

So after I remove …. Mi first reaction was….. “WOW!!! No more large pores!!! Wah!!! Whr’s my blackheads!?!??” Hahahah!!!

Tho this doesn’t works like Bioré pore pack whr u can see ur blackheads being “pull” out.. But… My nose really is much cleaner now!!

If bearing w these pinchy pain can change a clean nose back, seriously… I DON’T MIND!! Hahaha!!

Now I’m really tempted to buy some home!!

20120715-000638.jpg

Yes.. I know what u’re thinking!! It’s SKII again! My third set of SKII since my July Vanity Trove! It’s either SKII is having a promo or both VT and BB a good deal with them! But doesn’t really matter, 好东西不嫌多!

This SKII comes in a smaller pack then VT’s one but it comes with 2 extra items.. Cellumination skin care..

• Facial Treatment Gentle Cleanser (6g)
• Cellumination Mask-in Lotion (10ml)
• Facial Treatment Essence (6g)
• Cellumination Deep Surge EX (2.5g)

20120715-001343.jpg

20120715-001351.jpg

I used the facial cleanser immediately since both (VT & BB) are like gvg out their products so hard!

It’s easy to lather into form but the form is not those very dense type like Ettusais.. But it does smells nice! Probably my skin is too thick? I dun feel anything special about it after washing.. It’s like “just another cleanser”..

20120715-001932.jpg

Aft cleanse, I used the cellumination mask-in lotion! Refreshing.. Nice scent too..

According to their tips, u can use it like a cool therapy (extra treatment on concerned area) too!

Read on and u’ll understand more..

20120715-002210.jpg

And last step is my cellumination deep surge ex!

20120715-002223.jpg

And here!! Seee!! I followed every step as provided in my box! Very useful instruction..! Mi like!!! ^_^

PRICE? …Facial Treatment Gentle Cleanser 120ml for S$89, Cellumination Mask-in Lotion 100ml forS$114, Facial Treatment Essence 75/150/215ml for S$99/168/209, Cellumination Deep Surge EX 50g for S$199

20120715-003449.jpg

L’egere skin conditioner (30ml).. Product of Korea.. Juz with the chinese instruction can’t help feeling like it’s fr Taiwan..
Haha!!

What can this skin conditioner do?? See below packaging! (sorry.. Feeling abit lazy tdy!! Oppsie!!)

20120715-003458.jpg

I duno about u but I always seems to mixed up L’egere and Laneige! Haha!

PRICE? …150ml for S$31.90

20120715-003509.jpg

L’egere Platinum Hologram Illuminating Hydro Cream Base (3ml).. Another L’egere product.. But this acts more like a makeup base I guess..

20120715-003613.jpg

20120715-003651.jpg

Pore tightening and oil control is enuff for me to grab a full size one!!

PRICE? …40ml for S$39.90

Review on 16 July:

ok it din show very well in this pic but the cream is in a bit pale purple-ish beige color! wah sound so.. hahahaha! but u have to visualise abit to be able to see the purple.. putting aside the color.. the cream contain shimmers.. i guess that is why it can create the radient look.

in this pic, u see my hand?? bling bling..! on my finger tip is Ettusais BB cream, ignore that! hahaha! im just putting on my daily makeup before heading to work!

Overall, i feel nth too special about it. but probably i just haven use long enuff..

Next is a… BONUS!!

20120715-171656.jpg

A housebrand sexy red lipstick!! Yayaya!!! I’m lying! Hahaha!

20120715-171706.jpg

This is a pen not lipstick.. Not of very good quality but definitely a cute gift!!

20120715-171715.jpg

Last but not least… Other the the sample products, the usual brochures are also added in a pink envelop..

20120715-171728.jpg

Details of products in ur box will all be printed on this lil note… Very handy!

Now it’s the real “last but not least”! If u are interested in getting one box to pamper urself, check out this the link HERE! New price starting in July is $19.95 (existing subscriber still can enjoy usual price of $15 till ur subscription ends..)

Hope their products get better… Since there’s a price increase.. 🙂

SPECIAL: Pretty In Pinki Vanity Trove

Wow..! This special trove came earlier than I thought! Are u wondering what special trove? Well, if u had read my previous post u would know that VT came out with this Pretty in Pinki Trove..! Meaning, in this special trove, u’ll get a full size Princess Pinki cream and other beauty products samples! Cost?? Read my previous post HERE! ^__^

20120707-011303.jpg

So what do u think?? I think it’s good! Other than few repeated products as per my July Trove, I really think it’s a not bad trove! U’ll find out y as u read on..

20120707-011323.jpg

20120707-011331.jpg

This is one reason why I love my special trove!!!

Frankly speaking, when I saw this little bottle I was like.. “huh?? Bioré?? Sure not??” it’s like I can easily get this outside and it wasn’t really ike exclusive or something .. But still, I decided to give it a try because(!!!) this is Bioré latest makeup remover!! Gel remover!

20120707-014749.jpg

It’s clear base, not oily and no unpleasant fragrance.. And really!! I fall in love with it almost immediately!!

There are times that i will put on waterproof gel liner/mascara.. And i hate to use a separate eye makeup remover!! It’s so troublesome! Do u sometime feel tired jus by thinking of the process u need to go thru to remove ur eye makeup when u get home after a loooong day!?? I always feel that way that’s why I seldom put on mascara!

20120707-014954.jpg

Now with this gel makeup remover!! I tell u!! What is eye makeup remover man!!? U will nvr need to bother about eye makeup remover anymore!!!! And u can save $$ on cotton pad tooooo!!!!

Just pour a small amount onto dry hand and apply onto ur skin.. Gently massage.. GENTLY will do oh!!! And ur eye makeup will be gone without much hassle!!!! Clean and no “residue”!!

20120707-015009.jpg

See!! My waterproof gel eyeliner just “melted” together with the remover all over my hand! I’m sooo happy I got to try this! Definitely will get the full size of this product!!!

Update on 21 July: Yey!!! i got my full size gel remover!! i’m loving it totally!! now i can out on thick layer of mascara without fearing the removal process!! THIS IS HEAVEN!!!

Price for full size: S$24.90 (see another post on this Gel Remover HERE)

20120707-015033.jpg

Next is Estée Lauder wrinkle lifting serum! Haven start using this yet so I wun comment on this. But I heard quite a lot of positive review on Estée Lauder’s other products, so I would think that this is another good stuff..

20120707-015258.jpg

20120707-015307.jpg

Another Estée Lauder but this is eye mask! I think I will used this next week! Probably I will comment after I used it??? Hahaha!!

20120707-015048.jpg

20120707-015240.jpg

Pure Beauty Bon Voyage essential eye cream! Reduce dark circle and smoothen fine lines… Hmm… Let mi do some research on this.. I’m quite new to this brand..

Review on 21 July 2012: OK.. quite excited for the result.. i gift it to my mom this eye cream to try it for me and indeed she tried it with with much sincerity!! haha! i guess she’s excited about for the result too.. She tried it for few days last week and came to me on thursday telling me about her excitement!! she feels that her eyes area got smoother and brighter. i guess smoother means less wrinkles? Glad that she love this eye cream i guess if she wants more, i’ll definitely grab more for her!!

And did i mention?? I tried a little bit secretly!! & i think now i know why my mom got so excited about it. This eye cream has a light rose scent and testure isn’t very oily too. Yesh cream should be oily but the oily sensation for this eye cream is quite minimum i guess. After a min or two when the eye cream is absorbed, no more oily feeling and not sticky too! and and and!! the rose scent is still lingering around~ i can still smell it after it got absorded! Now i’m starting to love this tooo.. 🙂

20120707-015342.jpg

Sun block! I’m sure many of u are quite familiar with this brand alr.. In fact I knew about this brand too.. But just nvr thot of trying them.. Well I guess now is a good time to try.. Heee!

20120707-015355.jpg

20120707-015405.jpg

Paul Smith.. Well oh well.. I don’t quite like this fragrance.. It has a scent that wun make mi want to buy it.. It’s neither floral nor feminine.. It’s…. *speechless*

20120707-015439.jpg

Now this 3 products are repeated.. Got this in my July trove.. Thot this should be a special trove, so was a bit disappointed to see same product given as July’s Trove..

20120707-015511.jpg

Now!! For the “main character”!! Princess Pinki!!!!

20120707-015526.jpg

20120707-015532.jpg

20120707-015540.jpg

Too lazy to type out, so I thot I can just shoot the packaging and post here for your reference.. Hee!!

Seriously.. Just a small amount of cream will make u glow w natural pink!

20120707-015554.jpg

This is a teeny weeni bit of cream I use on my hand (lower arm???? Inner arm???).. the size of the cream I use is at most the size of a red bean or even smaller I think!!

20120707-015601.jpg

And seee!!! It can make ur skin looks glow w natural pink! I really din regret getting this trove, putting aside the few repeated products..

20120707-015618.jpg

I tried it on my lips and the back of my hand.. And unknowingly the finger I used to massage the cream onto skin, became almost red!! Hahahahha!!!

That’s y I say u wun need to apply lots to see the pinki effect!! U wun wana end up looking like some Chinese Opera singer..

Back to my finger.. I rmb I read somewhere about this Pinki will last for 2-3 days! So I need to quickly wash it off bef it’s too late.

So u can see, even the form turns pink when I try to wash away.. Do u think I mgt to wash it off??? No!!! It’s still pink!!! But at least not so pink alr….

20120707-015630.jpg

Remember!! Use a LITTLE bit at one time!!!! Dun be greedy!! Hahahha!!

Hope u enjoyed reading this post.. See u sooooon!

July Trove – Destination: Beautiful

– – – – – – – TANGS BEAUTY EDITION – – – – – – –20120625-230551.jpg

First thing first.. apologies for the LATE update! >_< been really really busy at work!! Anyway! here’s my trove!! The upgraded Tangs Beauty edition Trove (together with Egyptian Magic Cream)!! Just wana share.. VT mentioned bef that lucky ones will get their trove upgraded to Tangs Beauty trove. At first i really thot is selected LUCKY ones~~ but think quite a number of subscribers have been asking how to get this upgraded trove and blah blah blah.. after some time, VT finally clarified that subscribers who subscribed before 16th of the month (i think is 16th, or was it 14th???) will actually get their Trove upgraded! woohoo!! aint that good! & one thing i feel great about being a subscriber is… we actually get our trove at S$25!! & non-subs (purchased after that months subscription close) will have to pay S$30!! – or something like that..

Now here’s my Egyptian Magic Cream again!! tho it oily, but i still think its a good stuff!! LOL!! nvr too much to have them!!!

20120625-230603.jpg

OK back to my trove! super love this month trove! tho i feel that it would be better if can have more cosmetic to play with! or rather i mixture of both…

20120625-230619.jpg

20120625-230659.jpg

20120708-121101.jpg

& what i’ve always wanted to try.. Laneige!!! I’m definitely gona use this wholeheartedly!!!

Review on 8 July 2012: tried it some time back.. If u were to ask mi, I will say this product is good. Cuz I feel kinda refresh after using this mask together with it, skin refiner & balancing emulsion. But if u wan instant whitening products, then I think u mite want to try something else.. Now I’m in a dilemma.. Shd I use Ettusais or Laneige??? Arrr!! Can’t decide!

20120625-230714.jpg

This is sth new & yet not so new to me… new cuz i nvr really thot of exploring this brand bef.. but not new cuz i’ve seen this brand bef… LOL!! well.. i guess since i have a trial pack now, i can give it a try~
