Vanity Trove Malaysia April 2013 The Shower of Summer

Hi everyone! Today I have this month's Vanity Trove to share with you all. The first thing that I have  to say is VT really did a good job this month. I was quite disappointed with last month's content and finally I see an improvement in this box.

Here's what we have in the box:

1. Clarins Intensive Brightening Serum
The  Intensive Brightening Serum is the most advanced skincare for a fairer and healthier skin. Thanks to the exclusive Trans-Luminescent Complex, it had the ability to revive your skin's micro-mirrors at every layer, so that your skin appears clear and radant. With this ultimate brightening serum, skin looks fair, even and translucent with a rosy glow.

I'm not a fan of brightening skincare but it is good to see Clarins, a familiar brand. It comes with a 50% discount voucher on Clarins Face or Body Treatment at their KLCC outlet. Quite worth it.

2. KATE Eyeshadow DB
Each Kate Eyeshadow DB boosts a palette with two shades that can be used individually or mixed. What's more, you can create a third colour by mixing the two shades for a beautiful gradiation! It is great for both beginners and professionals and comes in 8 different hues. Turn your classic smokey eye into a colourful twist this season with these lovely eyeshadows!

Arrrggghhhh!!!! They have 8 different shades and yet I get the shade that I dislike the most!!! The one I have is in blue-gray and light blue. Both are shimmer and frosty, which is also not really the type of eyeshadow which I will use often. Anyway, Kate eyeshadows are very pigmented. My very first eyeshadow palette in college was from Kate. Those days I was a big fan of Nakashima Mika and she was the main face for Kate. Getting this Kate eyeshadows is quite sentimental to me.

3. Perkins Nail Wrap
Want fabulous nails but cannot afford time for the painstakingly slow drying process? Opt for a stylish and quick-dry mani-pedi with Perkins Nail Wrap. The Perkins Nail Wrap is a transparent nail wrap base that allows fuss free sticking, and creative mix-and-match with its wide range of designs and colours. Choose from a variety of 21 glamorous designs uniquely made in Korea. So, skip the nail parlour and get hands-on today!

Aaaarrrggghhh!!!! Again!!! They have 21 various designs but I get the one I dislike!!!! But it's ok, I've got another one from ModBox before this. I still haven't try it yet. But honestly, I find that painting nails is much faster and easier than these nail wraps.

4. Oriks Gemstone Nano Platinum Aqua Watery Cream
Developed in France, the Gemstone Nano Platinum Aqua Watery Cream is a moisturiser that smoothens wrinkles, tightens pores and brightens your complexion. It contains more than 90 types of natural minerals to boost skin vitality and protect your skin from harsh environmental stressors. When applied, this hydrating formula locks in plenty of moisture to maintain supple and dewy skin after a long day in the hot summer sun.

When I receive serum like this, I normally mix it with my mask to put on. So far the Oriks one that I got from MIVVA box was very good. I hope this is good as well.

5. Issey Miyake L'Eau D'Issey Florale EDT
The product card didn't show this scent, it only shows Elie Saab, Jean Paul Gaultier, Narciso Rodiguez and Issey Miyake Pleats Please. I can't describe the scent other than saying this is a wearable fragrance. Sorry, I'm not a fan of Issey Miyake perfumes.

6. KilaDoll Pearl Mask
I believe this is an extra item for this month. It is not mention in the product card.

Vanity Trove did improve a lot in terms of the products they put in the box. They also reduced their subscription fees from RM60 to RM50. RM50 is still quite expensive compared to other beauty boxes. I hope they will continue provide us with products of good brands.

If you like to subscribe to Vanity Trove, please use my affiliate link. It will help me gain some Vanity Tabs. I'm not too sure what's the purpose of the Vanity Tabs though...

Dear Jerine,
We're currently collaborating with VanityTrove to create an exclusive, customized trove worth RM100 each instead of the usual RM50. Instead of the usual beauty products, we're adding a touch of our own by giving away fashion accessories in the trove as well. Win one absolutely for free this Mother's Day by sending a photo of you and your mother to frockon9@gmail.com and further instructions will be given on how you can win. Good luck!

@FrockON Line: Thank you for informing me. I don't think this is for me because my mom doesn't take photograph. She appreciate her privacy a lot.
