[Review] October's VanityTrove

October's VanityTrove :D

If I were to pick a favourite trove, it'll definitely be this month's trove ! sugoi~

If you have shared the October's VanityTrove banner on facebook, you will received a bonus together with your trove :D

The bonus item is in the pink envelope . Guess what's inside the envelope? 

Very . Important . Babe.

I like it !

So, what's awaiting inside the trove ?


Tadah !

I jumped with joy when I opened the trove ! Even though this post came later than the usual later (apologies), I am still very excited to share with you the awesome items in this month's trove!

1. Audrey Christian Push Up Cream

Product description:  The Push Up cream will help keep the breast looking youthful and in good shape. It firms up the skin which supports and holds the breast tissue in form.

Sounds like a must have especially for young mothers !

A full sized product !

And ! This bottle of Push Up Cream costs S$129 ! :O

IMO, it's really . really . rare to find such an expensive product in full sized in a beautybox . Sugoi~

2. Violent Lips - Temporary Lip Tattoos 

Product description: "Your lips say everything"

This product really matches this month's theme - Big and Bold. :)

3. VMV Hypoallergenics - Cleanser & Moisturiser

Product description: Moisturiser - Smart hydration: more hydration in drier areas without adding shine or clogging pores in oiler areas.

When I first read the product description, I went "OMGSERIOUS". It's indeed a smart moisturiser! Personally I have dry-combination skin. This product is just . Perfect for me ! Love it !

4. Khol Kajal Eyeliner

When I first saw this product, I couldn't figure out what is this until I read the description on the product. 

Also a full sized product !

5. Methode Swiss Eye Care

Product Description: 
a) Thermal Therapy Eye Essence - Rich in moisturising and soothing active ingredients, the Thermal Therapy Eye Essence preserves the elasticity and softness of the eye contour skin. It contains a specific complex which reduces dark circles and unsightly puffiness around the eyes.

b) Thermal Oxygen Soothing Eye Cream - Thermal Oxygen Soothing Eye Cream deeply nourishes and soothes the delicate and vulnerable skin around the eye, to reduce puffiness and fatigue and to provide antioxidant protection.

c) Thermal Oxygen Overnight Eye Mask - is enriched with Swiss Thermal Water, algae extract and vitamins. It smoothes out wrinkles and fine lines, reduces under-eye dark circle and puffiness effectively.

This is my favourite product in this month's trove ! WHY? I have always been looking for products for my eyes ! It's really hard to get rid of dark circles and eye bags. I am glad to receive more products for me to try out ! :)

6. The Essence of Nature Lavender Sap Patch

Wondering what this is ?

It's actually a patch where you stick onto your soles overnight and it's said to remove toxic from your body ! I have bought similar product for my mom to use and she like it very much ! I might give this brand a try too :) 

- relieve fatigue and insomnia by lowering blood pressure and relaxing both body and mind
-release tension and pacify the nerves without toxicity

7. DHC Olive Essential Series

Bonus Item ! 
8. Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Facial Sheets

A total of 5 packs = 10 wipes was given as a bonus ! 

Just in case you are wondering what these facial sheets does, they're actually make-up remover wipes ! I have been using this particular make-up remover wipes for quite a while now (and am loving it) ! These bonus will definitely last me longer :) 

Maybe I will do up a review on this product soon ! (because it's really good!) :)

Alas !

Thanks for reading ! xx

[Review] October's BellaBox

Hello ! 

I am here to update on my October's BellaBox !

This post came a lil late but I am still! going to share what's in my box (for a personal reference in future too!) :)

The courier company was again - awesome !

I was not at home when the courier man came to deliver my box . After which, we arranged , and he agreed to deliver to my office in town the next day ! Thumbs up !

Pretty packaging !

Below are the items wrapped in the pretty parcel :)

There's a bonus BellaBox compact mirror this month as it's BellaBox 1st Birthday !

Here are details of the products in October bellabox.

(1) NUXE Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil - 10ml

Product introduction: Pamper yourself with this luxurious oil treatment that can be used on hair (no heating required) as well as your face and body. And just a couple of drops in the bathtub will create perfectly soft skin that's ready for a celebration.

Interesting ! I've tried this product on my arms and there is zero grease ! Not oily at all (even though it's a an oil product). It also has a nice fragrance . Love the smell .

Full size product :
S$68.00 for 100ml

(2) BIODERMA Sensibio H2O Micellar Solution - 20ml

Product introduction: This is Bioderma's star product, a truly unique cleansing solution that is formulated specially for sensitive skin. Sensibio H2O is prescribed by dermatologist for its perfect tolerability, cleansing efficacy and smoothing properties. This non-rinse solution is gentle enough to remove face and eye makeup.

Another non-rinse makeup remover which works as claimed ! Did I mentioned this before ? I love non-rinse makeup remover as (the lazy me) find it hassle free ! 

This product will be next on my list when I run out of makeup remover !

Full size product :
S$15.90 for 100ml

(3) Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire EDT - 1ml

Beautiful !

Product introduction : This divinely feminine scent means "little black dress" in French. Could there be a more perfect name for the perfect special-night-out perfume? The inclusion of roses, orange, blossoms, musk, cherry and apple will leave a trail of light, yet womanly allure that both precedes and follow your footsteps.

This sample size comes in a spray bottle for easy application. The pastel pink bottle look so sweet!

Full size product :

(4) NUXE Face and Body Ultra-Rich Cleansing Gel - 15ml

Product introduction : This soap-free cleansing gel is the perfect compliment to your unwinding regime. Fast, easy to use and infused with a delectable honey scent, transporting you to a calm, post night our sense of peace.

This cleansing gel I've got is for dry and sensitive skin ! Just nice for me ! Glad that I am able to use it :)

Full size product :

(5) NUXE Body 24Hr Moisturizing Body Lotion - 15ml

Product description : Eliminate dry skin with sweet almond and sunflower oils, Wheat and wood extracts make this natural formula that absorb instantly, allowing you to dress immediately after application. No wait time means you're on to your destination and your fun- fast !

True enough, my skin absorbs this mositurising lotion instantly ! However, one downside , the smell is not to my liking . :(

Inside this month's bellabox there is also a S$5 voucher from Beauty by Nature!

One Bad News:

I am thinking of unsubscribing Bellabox as:
1) The value of the items in bellabox has been decreasing. This month's bellabox would be of the least value out of the 4 months of my subscription (July-Oct).
2) Bellabox had changed their reward points system hence now, monthly subscribers will not get the usual 19 reward points for each subscribing month. Therefore, you'll take a longer time to accumulate 100points (min points before you can utilise them) to purchase products from bellabox's online store. 

I will still be subscribing for November's box as I am still in need of points in order to hit the 100points minimum requirement.

Hence, the November's bellabox will make my final decision.

Thanks for reading ! :) xx
