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!!

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

orange

(looks quite different eh?? LOL!!)

Antibiotic was discovered in a mould found in an orange peel. The tangerine plant has a sweet scent that calms and helps relieve stress. Besides the function of preventing cellulites,  it has a gentle whitening effect with antibacterial properties. Suitable for dry normal to dry skin.

Ingredients: Olive (Olea Europaea) Oil, Water, Coconut (Cocos Nucifera) Oil, Sucrose, Tangerine (Citrus Tangerina) Extract, Grapefruit (Citrus Grandis) Peel Oil, Orange (Citrus Dulcis) Oil, Bergamot (Citrus Bergamia) Oil

Cost is quite “wow” for me.. 100gm ±10g for RM29.90/NT250/S$13.90 and only available at selected Unity Pharmacy..

20130123-220330.jpg

you know one thing that will always turns me on?? …. ok, other then anti-spot products.. YES! Masks! From face mask to hair mask to hand/foot mask! & this month, we’ve got a Love More Face Mask!

Capture

This snail healing mask is enriched with the precious snail mucin and is made to deep hydrate your skin and heal epidermis tissue for a renewed and younger looking complexion with Copper peptide for anti-aging, firming and anti-wrinkle effect. & like all other mask, you just need to apply this mask on cleanse face for 15-20 mins!

20130123-220338.jpg

Last last last but not least!! This little SOUFFLE MARIN Energizing Oxygenating Serum from Phytomer!

Lights up your complexion like a walk in the sea air. A real breath of fresh air, this serum contains active marine ingredients which neutralize harmful pollutants, enhance the skin’s natural defenses and help it to breathe – for a fresh complexion and toned skin.

Okay, those sounds like what u read from the web! To me, the best that i see is.. this serum is suitable for oily-combination skin and tackles pimple and blackheads/whiteheads problem!

I don’t know if it works but if you are keen, it is only available at Guardian (MBS & Paragon ONLY) S$119 for 30ml.. guess its very exclusive… 🙂

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

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!
