Unboxing Vanity Trove April 2013, The Shower Of Summer

My box didn’t arrive on the next day after Vanity Trove mailed it. Sadden and was looking through Instragram how my fellow friends are going through the box but last week, I had a high-tea with Vanity Trove Malaysia at Vault Bistro, Glomac Damansara! Vanity Trove team is really friendly and it was great to catch up with other bloggers too. My very own box was sitting on the table and its packaged nicely just like how it would when I received it from the postman.

Here’s a glance of the goodies for this month’s box with the theme, ‘The Shower of Summer’ sharing with us their hand picked summer items.

Unboxing Vanity Trove April 2013, The Shower Of Summer - Card

Here is their info card and there are a few perfume listed, therefore I believe that some of the subscribers may receive different perfume samples.

KillaDoll Licorice & Job's Tear Whitening Mask

KillaDoll  Licorice & Job’s Tear Whitening Mask

There wasn’t any info attached for this mask and I can’t read Chinese. From what I know, its a sheet mask that helps to whiten face. I’m always into mask and I would consider this as a full size. Trust me sheet mask does come in sample size of miniature sheet mask which is why I would consider this as full size.

Issey Miyake Pleats Please Perfume

Issey Miyake Pleats Please (Eau De Toilette), 1ml/0.03fl.oz

“…promises joy, optimism and feminity in a single stylish bottle. Its fruity fragrance, formulated by the crossing of apple and pears, is topped with dashes of peony and sweet pea scents.”

The perfume has that tingling sweet floral scent. Its a warm scent yet refreshing that portrays fun, elegant and cozy characteristics. The end note for this perfume is more on the sweet scent, almost like vanilla but not as strong.

Price: MYR 225 (50ml), MYR378 (100ml)

Perkins Nail Wrap No8

Perkins Nail Wrap NO.8, 20 strips

“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 colors. Choose from a variety of 21 glamourous designs uniquely made in Korea.”

I tried nail wraps before but it turn out so well on me because it got wrinkled over my nails. I will definitely give this a try on my next manicure because I like that each nail wrap has two sides, the round end is meant for finger nails and  the square side is meant for toe nails. You also get to feel the texture of the nail wrap at the space provided. Cross fingers! Hope this will work out on me! This is also a full sized item because it comes with 20 strips and this could last up to 14 days.

Price: MYR 39.90 (20 strips)

Oriks Gemstone Nano Platinum Aqua Watery Cream

Oriks Gemstone Nano Platinum Aqua Watery Cream, 3 grams

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

When I first look at this, I thought it was another Oriks BB Cream until I  have looked closely on it. It sounds like a promising moisturizer. Since its cream, I’m skeptical if its going to turn out oily on me. I always loved how Oriks packaged their sample, cute, fancy and proper that makes you want to give it a try. Each of the blister pack is 1grams.

Price: MYR398 (50g)

Kanebo Kate Eye Shadow Blend Zone PK-1

Kate  Eye Shadow DB in PK-1,  1.6grams

“…boost a palette with two shades that can be used individually or mixed. What’s more, you can create a third color by mixing  the two shades for a beautiful gradation! It is great for both beginners and professionals and comes in 8 different hues.”

Another full size item! Kate is a Japanese brand and we can’t run away from shimmery powders for this. The one I got here is more of pink hues, one is pale pink and another is medium pink. The texture is smooth and when it goes on the eye lid, it doesn’t have any fall out or chalky. For this pink palette is great to create natural and brightening eyes.

Price: MYR49 (1.6grams each)

Claring White Plus Total Luminescent Serum

Clarins White Plus Total Luminescent Intensive Brightening Serum

“…the most advanced skincare for a fairer and healthier skin. Thanks to the exclusive Trans-Luminescent Complex, it has the ability to revive your skin’s micro-mirrors at every layer, so that your skin appears clear and radiant. With this ultimate brightening serum, skin looks fair, even and translucent with a rosy glow.”

Clarins has been quite generous on their samples and I always love serums because the concentrated formula which is the strongest among the rest of the skin cares category. There are 5 sachet of the serum sample and I think any skincare that is meant for brightening or whitening is great for Asian skin to balance the skin undertone (especially yellow) and for Malaysia, we get sun exposure all year round which gives us a good reason to use these type of products. I wonder how long will these sample last.  Clarins also provided 50% discount voucher on any Face or Body Treatment at Clarins Skin Spa.

Price: MYR 295 (30ml)


Say what? There are 3 full sized products that has been included in this month’s box! Bare in mind that beauty box are commonly known for providing deluxe sized samples and its rare to have 3 full sized at a go! Kudos to you Vanity Trove, I’m really happy with this month’s box and what attracted me the most is Perkins Nail Wrap, Kate Eye Shadow and Clarins White Plus Total Luminescent Intensive Brightening Serum. Although last month’s box disapointed many subscribers but look, this month has been handful! Can’t wait to see the next box and keep it up Vanity Trove Malaysia!
