By wearing the mask, which is designed to prevent pore expansion for 10 minutes, skin irritation is minimized and you’ll be able to see the crusting of sebum and blackheads popping out of skin. It will leave your nose smooth and glossy.

Vanity Trove X Cosmopolitan!

Been hearing all the hoo-ha about VanityTrove Cosmopolitan Beauty Authority & finally I can get my hands on it!!! HURRAAYYYY!!

IMG_6642

See the amount of goodies!! We have hair care, skin care, hair styling & makeup products..! Wow.. I can’t wait to show you everything!

IMG_6643

So here’s Goldwell Style Sign Full Rebel! Erm, I’m not really into this althought it promise good holding power! Why? Because it’s too sticky!! So much more heavier then whipped cream! As sticky as a glue! & it feels as if my hair is gona stick together (like tangle up).. Eeew… I prefer the curling cream iSalon recommended much much more!

IMG_6880This is the curling cream Susan recommend to me when i did my perm at iSalon! I ain’t that interested initially because I thought it works like a hair moose giving my hair a wet look throughout the day or a hair wax where the holding power is a nay.

However, to my surprise, it has amazing styling power! Why did I not use the word “holding” power? because it doesn’t HOLD your curl! You do not need to stand in front of the mirror and start grabbing/scrunching your hair! All you need to do is twirl your hair with this cream when it is almost dry then let your hair be.. You will get beautiful natural curls after that!! NO NEED MIRROR! I SOMPA (I swear)~! Best part about it is, it’s not expensive! S$19 for a bottle like this and each time all I use is just 2 pumps!

Erm…. have I drifted too far?? OKAY! Back to my trove!

IMG_6644

But was touched that Vanity Trove actually offer to send me a replacement after I informed them about the leakage! I only wanted to inform them so that they can be more careful next time (2nd time i rec’d a leaked product). I didn’t thought of demanding for a replacement because it just didn’t came into my mind but they offered so i accepted. HAHAHA!! Pro-active customer service is what keeps a customer coming back. *thumbs up* Thanks for the replacement VT, I had rec’d them..

Overall, I’m still satisfied with my VanityTrove Cosmopolitan Beauty Authority Trove! If I can get Majolica Majorca Lash Expanding Edge Meister and/or Shiseido Professional The Hair Care Aqua Intensive Mask, I will be even happier!! HAHAHAHA!! Can’t get too greedy huh???

VitaCreme Info: (quote from their site)

Vitacreme B12 is at forefront of cosmetic technology.

Vitacreme B12 preserves the external signs of youth.

Vitacreme B12 is a true assualt cream against wrinkles as it helps regenerate the superficial cutaneous layers and the cells damaged by age, the sun and enviromental pollution.

Vitacreme B12 prevents and repairs the effects of time through a progressive diffusion meeting the needs of each skin and through better penetration for optimal efficiency

20121101-222927.jpg

Last but not least.. My favourite… My most looking-fwd-to-use-product!! Neogence Off-heads serum!! seriously wait till i can get the info translated into english elsed i think im gona skip the product intro!

Below quoted from VT site:

New pore solutions, the new innovation…In hot summer months in tropical zones, like Asia, women really do become more concerned by oily skin resulting in blocked and enlarged pores…even more than we are concerned by our skin whitening concerns.

This brand is a team of dermatolgists, a bio-medical doctor and a professional pharmacist who have conducted vast amounts of research and analyzing of the skin’s pore problems.

 

To keep it simple and brief – when skin produces too much sebum, pores become blocked resulting in white heads, black heads and the worst, enlarged pores which loose their elasticity and finally lead to pock marks and very troublesome skin problems. Needless to say, with such professionals involved and the research done, the results are pretty amazing. Neogence Pore Solution Series will “effectively control sebum, keep the germs at bay, dissolve acne and rebuild pores”.I’d say try it, and you will be astonished

I only hope that this serum can effective minimize pores!

20121101-222951.jpg
