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!!

20130123-220132.jpg

20130123-220138.jpg

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

"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)

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 reinforces the protective cutaneous film and increases the skin’s natural resistance by intensively moisturising the superficial skin layers.

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

Vitacreme B12 penetrates up to the dermo-epidermal junction thanks to its liposomic agents where it reactivates the growth of germinal cells (deep layer of the epidermis) and promotes the formation of elastin and collagen fibres.

Vitacreme B12 allows to reprogram the hydration process in dry skins.

Vitacreme B12 is efficient in the treatment of breaks, cement disease and helps bedridden patients suffering from bedsores.

Vitacreme B12 allows to protect skins exposed to external aggressions (air too sharp, too cold or exposure to the sun).

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!

Before i end.. pardon my typo and any mistake! im too tired to proofread anything now.. LOL >_< Sorry!!

Covermark Door Gift!!

Remember i mentioned (blogged) about going to a workshop by covermark?? yeah .. you should cuz i blogged about it just less than a week ago!! hahahahaa!! See HERE!

So how much did i spend on this???? NONE!!! Because this is my door gift!!! It’s almost unbelieveable to me~~~ so much goodies in this little bag!!

Now first thing in my list….

After your loooong day at work or even shopping… time to remove makeup when you reach home!! arrg… tired! but fear not! this cleansing oil is as good as all other cleansing oil.. just a little bit u can remove your foundation.. not too sure about waterproof mascara but.. i think should be ok.. =P

NEXT.. Mineral Face Wash! This face wash works abit like Ettusais Pore Care Wash… u need to latter the face wash into foam.. thick solid foam.. The trick in using this is… use ur fingers & massage the foam onto ur face.. KEY POINT massage the foam!! not massage ur face..! too profound? that means the foam act as a medium between ur fingers and face, ur fingers are not allowed to touch ur face! This way, the dirt and dust will then be able to be carry away by the foam and not cause wrinkle to your pretty face..

After face wash.. remember to use your toner… this is one of they key product, Cell Advance Lotion.. it actually help to repair our Mother Cell.. What is mother cell u asking?? Mother Cell works like a mother.. it gives birth to more cell.. Thus u need a good mother cell to produce good baby cell.. If your mother cell is “sick” then ur baby cell will not be good too~ This will cause skin condition to go down down down…

What’s next!? serum of cuz!! this is also a cell advance formula! need to say more? hahah!

NOW… face clean clean.. time to put on makeup to start ur day!!? Here’s the connecting base coat! Like what its called, this is a makeup base. In this covermark door gift, there is two type of makeup base. This connecting base is suitable for oily/combination skin.

Tried it personally and quite like it.. it can even out my skin tone and can actually wear it nude like this.. looks presentable too! SUI!!

Here this is the other type that is more suitable for dry skin? haven try this but i think most prolly i’ll share with my sister? hahaah! lucky her! =P

Ok! makeup base set!! next up will be foundation! This is their star product! The Moisture Veil LX! This sample is actually only good for one use per color.

So what is Moisture Veil LX? It’s a new technology that converts sebum into the factor for luminous, moisturized skin. More luminous and moisturized the moment you apply it, but also as time passes. The more time passes, the deeper the beauty becomes. This is the first for a powder foundation. With a single patting on, it feels marshmallow light and gives skin a moist luster.

PRODUCT FEATURE: (quoted from their official site)

  1. Sandwich complex (multi-layer) powder converts sebum into skin radiance. Catches and gelates sebum on the surface of the skin to block it from causing cosmetic breakdown and darkening. When skin brightening powder catches sebum, it also tones up the skin and makes it more luminous as time passes.
  2. Moisture-converting powder changes into a cream that coats the skin and keeps moisture from evaporating, thereby keeping the skin moisturized.
  3. Contains plants extract that protect your skin from dryness
  4. SPF32 PA+++

HOW TO USE:

Tips for beautiful finish

* For areas with imperfections, dab powder on sponge bit by bit and pat onto the skin to avoid creating a heavy look.

* Do not dampen the sponge. This may cause the foundation’s surface to harden.

* The powder contains lots of moisturizers. Always keep the sponge clean and store on the clear tray inside the case, because the powder won’t spread evenly and thinly if the sponge contains any left over powder.

When using for touch up

* If there are shiny areas, lightly press them with tissue paper or blotting sheet.

* On areas with creased foundation, do not reapply. Instead mend the unevenness by lightly patting with a sponge.

* On areas where the foundation has fallen off, dab a small amount of the powder onto sponge and spread it evenly to recover a smooth, natural look.

You can also refer to my previous post to see the “direction” of how to apply!

I just wana add on … This foundation really makes my skin looks flawless…! good coverage! good investment ladies!!!

OK… my second last bit of this post…… FACE MASK!!!!! remember that little mask on my hand i posted in my previous post? hehe!! this is the FULL size version! ^__^

I cant bear to say goodbye to it but the fact that it has no SPF made me felt … “oh i still need extra sunblock care”.. pure laziness! >_<
