VanityTrove is a monthly subscription service. You get 6-8 deluxe beauty samples delivered to your doorstep every month. Lets jump right into it and see what is in my VanityTrove February 2013 box!
The box itself is a smart, drawer-like box that pulls out. How fancy! I love this box because you can glue or stack multiple boxes together.. and voila: you have yourself a makeup storage! So kudos to you, VanityTrove!
First things I see inside the box is a card that tells me a little bit about the products in my box and also a coupon for Oriks! I love the VanityTrove card, so purdyy.
1. Di Palomo Tuscan Rose Hand & Nail Cream (approx. RM33.50 for 75ml)
Okay, if you guys didn't know, I have a weird obsession with smelling everything I use.. (just putting that out there) and this.. honestly? ...Smells amazing! I'm not typically a floral-scent lover but this is an exception. It smells so good! I have yet to try this. If you can't tell from the pictures, I have really dry hands! They're disgusting so I can't wait to use this!
2. Wella SP Smoothen Mask (RM100 for 200ml)
Yay! I've only recently started getting more into taking care of my dry, brittle hair. So this is perfect timing! I LOVE hair masks and this is no different. It makes my hair soft and shiny after use. I use hair masks probably once every three days or so and it has really helped me. I am actually really liking this one.
3. Wella SP Smoothen Shampoo (RM59 for 200ml)
Sorry about the blurry photo, heh. I have very tangly hair so this is definitely something that I want to love. I've used this only 2 times so far and I feel that.. it's a shampoo. Nothing special or anything but I love shampoo samples! They are very travel-friendly. :) I may give this shampoo another go though.
4. ORIKS Twister Essence (RM218 for 35ml)
This is supposed to help restore pores, nourish the skin and protect from environmental pollution. I love how this feels on my skin but I've never really had any problems with pores so there's only so much I can say. This is a 5ml sample. The actual bottle of the full-sized product looks really cool though.
5. ORIKS Essence Twister BB Cream (RM108 for 35ml)
I'm proud to say that I have used up both the samples! I like how it feels on the skin, it's not oily and doesn't make me look shiny. It has a very natural look to it. The only complaint that I have is that it is too light for my skintone. But that aside, it is a great BB cream and I'm thinking about purchasing a full-size. This is a 2x2ml sample.
6. B.LIV Off With Those Heads Blackheads Gel (RM144 for 30ml)
I was so excited to see this brand in my box! I know it's really pricey!! Hahaha. This is a blackhead removing gel and I have yet to use it but I will definitely keep you guys posted on that! I just realised the girl on the packaging is using a plier to remove her blackhead.. All this time I thought she was singing or something.. -.-
7. Benefit Pore-fessional (RM120 for 22ml)
OMG. I've been wanting to try this for such a long time.. but have you seen the prices of these here in Malaysia?! This has not disappointed me! I love the feel of it, I love how it smooths out my skin and preps it for foundation. AHH! Thank you VanityTrove; I'm a happy girl!
They also threw in some chocolates (which I ate) in this pretty box!
Whew. The only product that I was underwhelmed by was the SP Shampoo. Other than that, I love everything from this month's VanityTrove! My favourite product would have to either be the Benefit Pore-fessional or the ORIKS BB Cream. The value of this box has definitely exceeded it's box price of RM60/box. I love my February 2013 VanityTrove!
