It's been a while since I have been parading my troves ... Vanity Trove Beauty Boxes to be exact =D I felt extremely 'atas' when the recent purchase from Vanity Trove was encased in this cream based with gold lining box. Yes, sometimes packaging makes a lot of difference in a purchase. A pretty packaging makes a happy customer. This is by far the classiest box around! =D
The signature drawer box from Vanity Trove is now looking classier than before!
As usual there was a selection of 6 items allowed for a trove and these are what I have gotten for October 2013 :)
Retail: RM118 per 200 ml for each bottle
Having tried some of products before, these too have the floral scent like the other range. A very pleasant one that refreshes your daily cleansing regime. It's also good to know that despite being produced with concotions of chemical-derived agents and catalyst, these are paraben-free product.
Parabens are chemical preservatives that have been identified as estrogenic and disruptive of normal hormone function. It mimics the function of our naturally occurring hormone estrogen, and exposure to external estrogens has been shown to increase the risk of breast cancer.

Talika Lipocils Eyelash Conditioning Gel (2ml)
Retail : RM185 for 10ml
Derived from plant extract, it actually guarantees longer and thicker eyelashes in just 28 days! Great news for those who have never found a solution for naturally longer lash and depends solely on mascaras =D Claims to be able to give a lift for those who have short and sparse lashes, brittle and lack of lustre.

Nuxe Nuxellence Jeunesse (15ml)
Youth and Radiance Revealing Fluid
Retail: RM180 for 50ml
There has been so much rave about Nuxe this couple of months that I can't resist not getting it to try out. Upon reading the product info, it feels like I have found an obvious answer to anti-aging! It claims to be able to repair the mitochondrial DNA of the skin to reveal the skin youthfulness and radiance.
A pinkish based cream with a soothing scent of floral that is good to go as moisturiser for those with normal skin. You may need another layer of moisturiser for those who have severely dry skin as this may not give you the sufficient moisture level on its own.

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multipurpose Dry Oil (10ml)
Retail : RM88 for 50ml, Rm148 for 100ml
The oil that doesn't leave you oily - Nuxe Hule Prodigieuse! Most of the Nuxe products have names that is almost impossible to be pronounced correctly, yet gives you the most of benefits =D I love the scent of this oil! It's not floral, instead more spicy and classic. With a unique concentration of 6 Precious Oils (Borage, St. John's Wort, Sweet Almond, Camellia, Hazelnet Hazelnut and Macadamia) and Vitamin E, it leaves your skin silky smooth and with the lingering scent that is soothing. As it's not oily, you can use it on your face too besides the normal use on body for that boost of hydration.

Kiehl's Super Multi-Corrective Cream at 7ml
Retail: RM210 for 50ml
At the mention of the word 'Super' there is no doubt that this is another must try sample! I would say that no brands will be that bold to put the word 'SUPER' as part of the product name unless it really is super! It claims to be able to give results in just 4 weeks! This Kiehl's Super Multi-Corrective Cream claims is an anti-ageing cream that assist to correct various effects of aging in 2 weeks time and by the time you reach 4 weeks of usage, you are supposed to see the obvious results and efficacy of the cream, so it says. Well, what better way to see if it works, if not try this 7ml sample for 2 weeks :)

Astalift Day Protector SPF35 PA++at 7g
Retails at RM158 for 30ml
The Astalift Day Protector is a lightweight sunscreen lotion with a selection of SPF35 or 50, if not misdtaken as I noticed the one shown in Vanity Trove is SPF50 and I got a SPF35. Which is fine for me as I seldom leave the office anyway =D I like that it's not greasy and extremely lightweight. Formulated with Deep UV Guard Technology, it claims to protect skin against the most harmful UVA rays which most suncreen can't do. Another interesting component which is noteworthy: it contains Fujifilm's propriety optical powder known as "Light Analyzing Powder", the Day Protector White controls the reflection and absorption of light on skin's surface. Wow! Did they mean those Fujifilm negatives contains these powder that gives us the glow when our pictures are developed?

How many of you here have always been reading about Vanity Trove but are still hesitant to give it a try? Without Vanity Trove, I must say I have no idea that brands such as Nuxe, Decleor, Rodial and many more actually exist! Not a fan of shopping mall or that frequent in buying fashion and beauty magazines, I actually rely on these beauty boxes to equip me with the latest of beauty products worthy to try. And for RM50, I get to test and see if the Kiehl's Super Multi-Corrective Cream is going to erase some aging effects off my face, while getting to slather some Nuxe oil for silky smooth skin, and leaving home with a day protector cream that claims to be able to protect from UVA, and sleep over a youth cream that can repair mithocondrial cells for a youthfull face - what else can I ask for!?
And all of the above are curated by yours truly - because I know best what my skin needs ;)
Start curating your own too at Vanity Trove.
