vanity trove: beautiful surprises
once again, a box from the very awesome vanity trove arrived!!! i must really thank them for making my very boring singapore life more interesting! check out my happy face:
immediately ripped the plastic wrapping apart to reveal the wonderful little treasures inside. the last time they sent me a box was about 8 months ago, and i also blogged about it here.
i am a frequent traveller and so these small sized products are really handy for me to carry around, and even up the plane! even if you don’t travel, these also fit into your purse and you can use it on the go.
did you know that once you open a product, you should finish it within 2 months? once you open it up, air and bacteria goes into the product and if you leave it unfinished for too long, not only your space will be cluttered, your face will also be in trouble. so i make it a point to clear my old products every 2 to 3 months! but with vanity trove, you won’t have to worry about this problem as the small size ensures you can finish them within a month before the next box comes in! awesome :p
every month, vanity trove will have a mini-sized magazine introducing each month’s products as well as beauty tips! february’s the month of chinese new year and valentines’ day so it will be awesome to learn more make-up and skin care tips to keep our skin healthy and beautiful.
opening up the box, the products are carefully wrapped in beautiful purple paper and it looks so elegant, but what’s more exciting is looking at the products one by one and discovering new brands and products :p
the first product that caught my attention was this perfume, which is a new scent by dkny. omg did i say how much i love rose @#^$%%^&*O()*^(gush#@^*& and floral scents hahaha i have 6 bottles of perfume at home and they are all floral :p
and finally! this will be my first kiehl’s product in my life! i’ve heard from a lot of my friends that they love this brand but i’ve always been too paiseh to take the free samples from the shop hahahaha and if you guys follow me on twitter in 2012, i had a major outbreak of pimples (thank god it’s all gone now) for the whole year and i still have some dark spots left. i am *crossing my fingers* and hoping this dark spot solution works!!! it says ‘rapidly correct dark spots’ ……OK WORK ME A MIRACLE THANKS
so many products and they are all really good brands!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *gush somemore*
but guess what? all 4 of them are serums!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the first one is from iderm, a placenta serum, and the second one is from clinique, an anti-ageing serum. i used to eat placenta and it was awesome for my skin, so i guess this will be awesome too??? placenta nourishes the skin and prevents wrinkles and since i am 23 this year, it’s time to start on the anti-ageing products!!! i hope i won’t be needing fillers or botox in the near future.
the third one is the kiehl’s dark spot solution and the forth one is a polarized water serum.
so many serums………. nose bleed hahahahaha
so actually for this advertorial, i used the bb cream that came in, from skin79. i have never tried this brand either but i know it has won a lot of awards. and now i know why…
i love it!!! it’s really smooth and glides on really easily, plus it also blends into my skin tone really well. i have tried many brands of bb cream and i must admit it’s one of my favorite brands now :p
february’s trove came with a pomegranate face mask and i decided to wash my face and use it immediately.
anyway how do you guys use a face mask??? for me, i will put my eye cream before i put on the face mask. my skin around my eyes usually become dry very quickly. in the past, i used face masks without eye cream, and halfway while using the mask, my eyelids will become dry, and i hate it.
so remember to put some eye cream first!
this also means bye, i’m off to enjoy my face mask :p
