Vanity Trove March - Temptress Seduction

This is the second box from Vanity Trove Malaysia and the hopes were certainly high from a lot of them out there too. And yes it included me too. I was waiting anxiously to know what's the content this time and how it would seduce me, yes right with the theme 'Temptress Seduction'. So what they has this time and did they make the mark? Judge it yourself :-)

1) Asian Potion - Blooming Ginger Body Lotion

"Said to be made from natural flowers, fruits and plant essences and helps to make your skin feel moisturised and firm. This is the perfect skin quencher that provides you with a deep inner calmness after a long day"

There was also a 10% discount voucher from Asian Potion.
I love lotions and always welcome beauty boxes which includes any sort of lotions. So this is also my favourite.

2) Timeless Truth - TT Orchid Extract Whitening Mask.

"It's said to be made from orchid, purple peril and chamomile extracts and will help you whiten, brighten and moisturise your skin. And they have also included a 20% discount voucher."

I guess this immediately won my heart, having to know that it's one the brand available at Burj Al-Arab.

3) Kanebo - Skin Fusing Powder Foundation

"Provides a natural coverage and ensures a shine-free appearance with its SPF 20 PA++ powder formula. Instead of staying as a thick layer of makeup, this foundation blends and melts into your skin when applied"

They have also included some sachets of Smoothing Makeup Base and also a voucher for a 45 minutes Vivid Color Purification Makeup lesson or a makeover with Kanebo. With this size of sample, Im not sure how relevant it is and I'm not so much of a foundation fan.

4) Etre Belle - Sensiplus Hydrasilk Gel Tonic & Sensiplus Hydrasilk Day & Night Cream

"This is specially for the ladies with sensitive skin. The Gel Tonic works to sooth and moisturise one's delicate and irritated skin. And the Day & Night Cream protects allergy-prone skin against environmental stressors and helps to relieve itching and irritation of skin"

5) Bio - Essence - Bio Energy Firm & Brighten Eye Cream

" An eye cream with SPF 15 and something certainly any ladies would need to care their eyes"

Overall, I'm glad that Vanity Trove is making efforts to bring in more brands for us to try such as Asian Potions and Timeless Truth. I'm happy with this new brands that i'm aware now.

Wonderbox February Edition - Hot Red!

oOo No, i have beauty boxes filling up the space and I've not done any reviews yet.  So which was is gonna hit the blog first? Erm, I think it should be the one that first arrived right. And it's also one of my favourite? Why? Because they always arrive on time for me (well used too unlike this round) and the way the ribbon is tied and lastly the small details that they like to include (eg. the flowers that they have included this time around). Somehow this round, I believe that I was in the second group of shipping as I got my box way later than others. And by the time I got it, it was not a surprise anymore as a lot of them starting posting up the photos out there. I guess this company sends their boxes in stages.

Anyway, that aside, beauty boxes never fails to make me happy when I get to open them. So what do they have stored this time around? See below ladies.. Yes, this box was filled till the very top :-)

Time to given a much closer look..

Clinelle Moisture Booster (20 ml)
Said to provide a natural recovery properties and maintains our skin hydration at an optimal level. It's also oil-free and helps to promote instant moisture penetration to sooth the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

H2O Face Oasis Dual Action Exfoliating Cleanser (30 ml)
Said to deeply cleanse and revitalise the skin with it's oil free formula. This cleanser is made from natural fruit enzymes, jojoba beads and moisturising marine botanicals.

H2O Marine Toner (30 ml)
It's a alcohol free toner which helps to sweep away impurities while improving the moisture absorption. This toner containers Allantoin, Provitamin B and also the hydrating Marine Blend.

Murad's T-Zone Pore Refining Gel (3.7 ml)
This gel helps to clear pores while balancing oil and dry zones and it's said to also reduce the size of the pore for a flawless skin complexion.

Murad's Energising Pomegranate Moisturiser (30 ml)
It's a lightweight and oil free moisturiser which infuses skin with hydration and also assists in protecting our skin against the UVA/UVB rays.

Jacqueline Burchell Nail Lacquer (5 ml)
Said to be a wonderful nail lacquer with over 250 colours to choose from. I got the colour 'Speed of Light'. You can refer to their website and you'll see that all their colours have wonderful names.

That concludes the items in this box. Somehow most of the items in this box was mostly skincare and I feel that they should be a mix of both at times as you get slightly bored seeing the same range right. But having said that there are some items that I'm happy that I got in my box like the Energizing Pomegranate Moisturiser and Jacqueline Burchell Nail Lacquer.
