Beauty Boxes need no introduction anymore! But perhaps you do not know what are the available beauty boxes available in our local online market here in Malaysia. The first time I was introduced to this fabulous ideas of getting beauty samples delivered to your doorstep was via one of the very first beauty boxes ever introduced locally - by the now defunct Fabulous Finds (which we reviewed in A Fabulous Little Secret). Little did I know that there were already a presence of another beauty box subscription that delivers to Malaysia - all the way from Singapore!
Vanity Trove may not be a strange and unknown name to beauty junkies out there. Previously, those who yearns to get hold of the Vanity Trove beauty Box would have to subsrcibe from Vanity Trove Singapore. Here's some reviews on the Singapore's version done by Street Love: February 2012 and April 2012.
Now you have Vanity Trove Malaysia -
Exclusively curated for Malaysians.
VT February's Valentine Edition
Priced at RM60 for a box (1 month subscription), there is no denying that this is one box that stands in the exclusive neighborhood among all beauty boxes. A box consist of an average of 6-8 beauty samples (the average beauty boxes out there comes with an average of 5-6 items), complemented with relevant information leaflets for each product. There are also some discount vouchers of the relevant product brands, just in case you would love to splurge on the actual product after trying it out. Here's some of the available beauty samples in the VT February box:
Di Palomo Moisturising Body Wash - when I opened the box, it smells so nice and I assumed it must have come from this tube here and immediately squirted some and rubbed in on my arms. Only realised a week later that this is a tube of body wash lotion and not body lotion -_-
Benefit Pore-fessional Pore Minimiser - totally a must-have item for those who wants flawless look when putting on make up.
Oriks Wild Ginseng Stemcell Twister Essence - non oily and gel based essence that absorbs easily and leaving you with a soft and supple skin. This is not supposed to be an individual review of these beauty samples, but as I was snapping pictures, I sort of twisted the cap off and some of the gel came off. Didn't want to waste it and slap onto face there after =D
Oriks Wild Ginseng Stemcell Essence Twister BB Cream - 2 medium sized capsule based container that claims to contain 3 tiers of main item in it : the wild ginseng based lotion, concealer and repairing serum
b.liv Off With Those Heads - Blackheads Sebum Gel - not too sure on how this works: apply and squeeze the blackheads OR apply and leave on like any other lotion and it works to stop blackheads / whiteheads formation. Anyone got experience to share regarding this product?
Wella System Professional Hair Care Set - shampoo samples are great! You can keep it to use during times when you are travelling. What are the chances that you can walk into a saloon or any haircare counter (are there even any?) and ask for some samples to bring home to try?
Something sweet for the month of Valentine ;)
The average price of a beauty box available in our local market averages about RM35-RM40 with each one offering a varying presentation of products and packaging, with an average of 5-6 products in a box. The VT box has slightly more items in it. If price is not your determining factor when purchasing a beauty box subscription, and instead you love the joy of testing out products or brand names that you have heard of but never tried before, this is a pretty functional box for the purpose of exploring new products at a fraction of the actual sized product price. Among some of the brands that you can expect to see in your future VT beauty boxes are listed here: Brands of Products
