Vanity Trove: Beautiful Surpises to Malaysia!!

Finally, beauty box subscription arrived in Malaysia!!! Beauty boxes have been one of the latest trends around in the blog-sphere.  We have brands like Birchbox (US), Glossybox (UK), Glamabox (HK), Fukubukuro (Japan), Bellabox and now Vanity Trove hit Malaysia!! =)) Excited ain't you??
How beauty box subscription works? Every month, you need to pay a certain subscription fee amount for this box which contained beauty samples and products selected for you. After so, you only have to wait for them to deliver this beautiful surprises to your doorsteps. Ladies who love surprises will definitely love it!!! You won't have a single ideas of what's inside the parcel until you open it up. Isn't it sounds so fun?? 

Honestly, I really like how they packed their boxes. The white large box is sturdy and very thick in quality. I love how we have to pull-out the items in like a drawer. And then, you'll see things wrapped nicely under the beautiful pink tissue-paper.

And so, they even inserted a beautiful small note from the editor team telling you about the box and products in!! The theme was 'A New Beginning, A New You'. It's definitely a way to Welcome 2012 and welcome Vanity Trove to Malaysia! Besides that, they included a list of the products with description so you won't be so blur on what and how to use the product inside the box. =)

And here's what we got for the January's Vanity Trove!!
(No wonder the box are quite a weight)
And here you got a few samples of beauty products. Some of them is very new to me!! Definitely an exciting box for those who wanna try them on but afraid to pay for the full products in case it doesn't work. =D =D


Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief moisturizer, 15ml (50ml for $75)
Everyone has been raving about this products for hydration!! And to be honest, this is the first time I tried them on!! I don't have a good experience with Clinique during the past. So even the raves says, I didn't want to purchase this for the full size counter price. What if it doesn't work for me again?? Now, I don't have to go to the counter ask the SA for sample to try this (Most of the time, the SA will usually pull a long face).  So far I've used 1- 2 times and it's not a bad product.

Leader's Clinic Face Mask, 1 sheet (10 Sheet - S$75)
Leader's Clinic is a leading skincare brand in Korea and it's paraben-free!! The 2-step Aquaxyl Filler masks consist of a base ampoule and an essences moisten silk cellulose mask for hydration!! If you've been following my blog, I am always into hydration products so this mask is absolutely for me!! Did I mentioned that it's been a trend that most mask nowadays come with a cream like this?? It's super travel-friendly as you don't have to grab all those bottled creams/moisturizer along. =)) 

Olivella Bath & Shower Gel and Olivella Body Lotion, 70ml (200ml for S$18.90)
Olivella contains 100% Virgin Olive Oil, which helps moisturizers while bathing and the lotion contains Vitamin A & Vitamin E specially formulated for de-hyrated skin and dry skin like me!! I've yet to try them on as I haven't finish my existing shower gel and lotion. But I do like the concept of 100% natural ingredients. Don't you? Somehow this look a bit like The Body Shop product to me. (just a thought) 

YADAH Beauty Pack ($10.90 for one pack)
The thing that attracts me is their super cute packaging!! They packed everything in a ziplock bag. Inside the ziplock bag you have all the samples size of YADAH products which consists of Nose pack, mask, ampoules, BB cream, and skincare. I honestly never heard of YADAH skincare until this box arrived. I was told that this brand are very popular in Japan & Korea and are beings old in various departmental stores and cosmetic retail chains in both countries. If you noticed the cute packaging, it was actually targeted to Teenagers & Young Adults. (If only I were younger). Japan & Korea definitely scored in terms of cute packaging!

YADAH Angel Liptint Lip and Cheek Stain in Juicy Red, 3ml for $10.90
One LOVE for this. It's a full-sized product!! It was quite a similar concept with Benetint except this it's in a gel form. Angel Liptint is naturally extracted colorant from plants such as Red Tomotoes and Gromwell flowers. (Ohh...Natural ingredients). And this smell like berries~~~ yummilicious! Besides using it as a lip tint, you can use it as blush to give a tiny soft flush on your cheek. And so this is my favorite product of all in this box. =))

I bet most of you will ask "how much does it costs?" The monthly subscription fee will be RM50 (inclusive of packing,shipping and handling fees) or RM600 for 13 months (with one month free!). As per RM50 a month, it may seems pricier. But as a bargain hunter is important for me to justify if our RM50 paid is worth or not. Leader's Clinic mask approximately RM15 - 1 sheet, YADAH products around RM50 (both lip tint and sample pack), Clinique Moisture Surge and Olivella products around RM30+ and shipping fee (all the way from Singapore) definitely worth more than what we paid for! *sounds good* 

If you read my previous post about Beauty Box, Vanity Trove definitely come by with a higher price compare to others that available (in Singapore). I'll probably do up a comparison of beauty box subscription near future. 
Overall, I am quite satisfy with my first box from Vanity Trove as the goodies I received are not too bad. I will definitely give a chance to try this for a few months. You never know what surprises is coming up isn't it? Honestly, I love the IDEA of getting boxes of surprise send to my door every month especially beauty junkie like me. Besides having surprise yourself with this beauty box monthly, you can even surprise your friends as a gift. This would actually make a great gift to be given out either as Valentine gift or Birthday present. (I am getting one for my bestie to surprise her at work :p  *shhh...hope the workaholic her doesn't have time to roam into this post*)   

Still on the fence on this? Give it try to subscribe to Vanity Trove.com. You can subscribe monthly and cancel anytime you want. Btw, don't forget to take a quiz on your beauty profile because your goodies are customized towards your preference there. And you can also visit their Facebook Page or Twitter for updates, contest and inquiries.  

And now.....

Your beautybox looks like it has a lot of good sized samples in it! The ones I've seen in others' birchboxes don't seem all that great. I'd say you definitely got your money's worth this month!

They only give samples if we buy something from them. So if we walk and asked, they usually suck out their faces or said no stock. :(( Hehe XD
