Loving my customized trove.

Complete with all my favourite stuff which came in really handy on my Langkawi trip earlier on. I swear by sunscreen too and the sample sized kose infinity SPF50 is handy :) albeit being a little too ‘rich’ or sticky for my skin.

The gaba nite which promises one a restful night – will be gifted to my brother who seemingly needs it more than I do :)

Cetaphil face and body wash is perfect to save space in your luggage (I took this along for my trip and didn’t need to pack any shower gel over. I rarely use the ones provided by the hotel for 2 reasons, one – in my bid to be eco friendly, and well, two because I love having my own set of skincare , stuff that I am already confident of .
Thanks vanitytrove for your brilliant effort in bringing personalized skincare samples to women (and men)

Beauty Samples – suggested according to my beauty profile

While customizing my VanityTrove the other day (I ran into problems) – receiving an error msg that there are “No recommended samples”. I rectified that with their help – by selecting Singapore at my country in the beauty profile LOL.

Hadn’t realised i left that empty.

So anyways here’s what the process looked like once the sample list came up.

of course they didn’t only reflect 5 samples. A range of over 30 came up and those were the ones I selected: )

Afterwhich I could check out quite simply (And was told to expect the delivery in 7days or less).

Vanity Trove – STYLE hair care and K Palette Concealers

Some time ago Vanity trove invited me and my mom for a SPA Party.
During which I was introduced to a a brand called STYLE from Israel.

What’s unique about Style is that it uses 90% natural ingredients – the brand I believe stocks mainly hair moisturizers each enriched with camomile, borage, jojoba, camelia, rosemary and more. I was trilled to take home the Moroccan Argan oil range and my mom – the Intensive Repair one which smells divine.

In fact when I came home, realised I actually have a huge satchel of hair moisturize from STYLE given to me by Cozycot previously.

Sold at Guardian Pharmacies

Style PRO HairCare is a professional hair care line based on natural essential oils that protect and pamper the hair and scalp. Every variant contains the pure essential oils selected for their efficacy that provide a focused natural answer to the specific needs of the specific hair and scalp.

-Curl Control variant for wavy, curly and hard-to-style hair.

-Colour Protection variant for coloured and highlighted hair.

-Intensive Repair variant for dry or damaged hair. (I chose this)

-And the New Moroccan Argan Oil variant

This hair moisturizer cream is very light weight and protects hair from sun and chemical treatments with its NAA technology, Everlasting oil and dead sea minerals!

The moisturizer (aka leave in hair conditioner from STYLE) was not heavy on my hair and thus didn’t weight it down. It’s important because my hair doesn’t have more volume and being weigh down would just make this sadder. I love how this product made my hair smell pretty good …so I am sure too boyfriends will appreciate this product.

I chose Argan oil because it has one of the strongest antioxidant properties found in nature, together with Lineolic Acid (Omega 6), Omega 9, Vitamin E and Squalene, . Argan Oil has been used by generations of Moroccan women to strengthen and care for hair, skin and nails. (Sounds good huh?)

STYLE products are priced from $10.15 to $23.50 and sold exclusively at Watsons.

For readers who use concealers. ( I use them mainly to brighten my under eye area and also to conceal redness at times).

Spot my cute K Palette Zero Kuma Control Concealer- these concealer comes in 3 shades that will fix the following

01 – Conceals Dark eye circles while moisturizing ur eyes with Collagen and Rose water

02 – Brightens your eyes with Vita C, Chamomile /Prune extracts

03 – Conceals dark circles by aiding in blood circulation with Japonica Extract, Silver Birch leaves extract, Amino acids and more

Mom and myself took shades 2 and 3.
