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).



Looks like VANITYTROVE always amazes in July. Last July the trove contained SKII.

This year……more surprises unveiled here:

Here’s my july vanitytrove of which I am elated to receive full sized SKIN INC serum  worth S$136.96 and one of their make up remover oils.

And 2 super cute lippies from Jane Iredale.

Read about the Jane Iredale Difference

Six jane iredale products have earned the Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation. To earn this seal, a manufacturer must provide scientific data showing that its products sufficiently and safely aid in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin.

They pure mineral pigment with no fillers such as talc, thus their foundations and concealers give exceptional coverage that requires minimal touch-ups.

Some time last week – I tried out the Black Caviar mask from the FEB EDITION of VANITYTROVE. LOVEMORE is a brand that originates from Taiwan and is now available in Singapore, along with other brands like YUANSOAP.

On first looks – I noticed the papermask was thinner than the average – which is fine because it still held ample fluids on it (except that i tugged to hard and tore a corner lolol).

Oh well but i think it is just me ….

The sticker on the package of the mask stated that people with sensitive skin should take care while using it. It worked ok on me (an individual with sensitive skin alright). The ingredients list seemed harmless with things like aloe vera in it along with extracts from black caviar of course and a few common ingredients used often in masks like these. I liked that the mask is light weight and the serum too! didn’t feel too sticky and sat comfortably on my skin!

Because the mask was thin it was easy to smooth it out and remove air bubbles (unfortunately I took the photos before i did so proper hahaha)

This is the first time I’m taking a photo with a face mask and publishing it lol. please don’t judge.

Next we move on to YUANSOAP from

The honeysuckle scented soap lulls me to sleep and I had better not use this in the mornings hahaha. I love the all natural ingredients and that it includes geranium and lavender oils which are my 2 favourites. I have said this many times I know.

I had this stowed this away in the Vanitytrove box for a good 3 weeks or so and realized the brown paper used to wrap the bar of soap show that some oil actually comes out of the soap perhaps due to the heat or something or improper storage on my part.

It comes in several other scents!

The soap lathers fine :) and because it is made from Glycerin it’s gentle on skin and doesn’t dry your skin out. I love it.

That’s all for now!
