Vanity Trove - Awesome Wholesome!

May 25, 2013

Yay! My first Vanity Trove box. I've heard a number of reviews from other bloggers and finally I got the chance to review. Thank you Vanity Trove! This is definitely a beautiful surprise for me :)

VANITY TROVE - AWESOME WHOLESOME EDITION

Okay let's unbox it together! The moment I open the box, there is a calming and sweet scent! I can't wait to see which product does it come from. The scent is pretty strong but acceptable.

These are the first things I see. A whole bunch of booklets on product information. This is a good move so Im able to know more details of the products given and the brands. 


Besides booklets, there are vouchers from Hishop, Mary Chia, and Skinlab!



Welcome note and product guide! Even this card has the scent!



Let's get to the best part.
I'm already seeing some of my favourite brands here!! Good job Vanity Trove, for placing the products on crumpled papers so no faulty or damage done to the products. Kudos!



1) Schwarzkopf  Essensity Natural Shine Serum (50ml) (RM 56)
  • Caters for frizzy hair. It works to give you the natural shine, smoothes tresses, and tames unruly hair. It contains Sesame and Olive Oils to improve hair texture . This smells a bit weird... it doesn't have a 'fun' smell, knowing me who loves fun scents like fruits, sweets, etc. Despite having an awful scent, it does control my frizz a little bit after one use. 


2) Eau Thermale Avene Spring Water RM19(50ml)/RM39(150ml)/RM55(300ml)
  • I've used this water spray before. I use it on a daily basis and also for travelling. This is not just a normal face mist, it can be used on your body as well. The spring water works to calm sensitive skin. Not only refreshing your face, you can spray it on sunburns, rashes, after hair removal, razor and shaving burns, setting makeup, itching, etc. This is definitely my best water spray because it's multipurpose!


3) Pure South Organic Body Lotion with Fresh Goat's Milk (RM59)(255ml)
  • Goat's milk is well-known for it's nourishing and moisturizing content, and this lotion is no exception. I like the scent of this lotion. It reminds me of a spa!! Very relaxing and calming. After applying it, the scent stays on my skin for a few hours and my skin feels softer too. This product contains vitamin A and D, rose oil and Rosella extracts.


4) Tilley Goat Milk Soap (RM12)(Single)/ (RM26)(Twin-Pack)
  • BINGO! The scent that fills up the whole box comes from this soap, I think! As I put it closer to my nose, the scent gets stronger. This soap is chemical-free and its ingredients sourced directly from Australian Goat Milk farm. It's rich in skin conditioning Organic Shea Butter, Organic Jojoba Oil and Organic Cocoa Butter. Can't wait to try this!


5) Heaven on Earth Essential Oil - Lavender. (RM50) (5ml)
  • It's made of steam distilled Lavandula Angustifolia flowers of a Frenh origin. This oil works to help you sleep better, reduce anxiety and aches, makes you calm and relaxed, and soothe insect bites. I like to apply this on my neck before I go to sleep so my neck doesn't hurt much when I wake up the next day. It has an amazing scent that makes you want to go to bed in a snap. 

As this is my first Vanity Trove box, I'm happy and satisfied with the products given. Vanity Trove goes organic for this edition - good for the skin, good for the environment too! As I've been travelling a little bit this month, most of these products come in handy for me, so YAY! Looking forward to the next month's edition ;)

Yo party people! One fact about me (if you want to know), I like organizing parties, especially birthdays. I get excited whenever there is a birthday for a family member or friends or even mine! Why I love parties? Because I get to buy and decorate all these cute cute and colourful stuff!





Sometimes it can be a hassle and tiring to drive around to look for the right party decors and favours. Surveying the items and price, looking for the shops entah corok mana kan.. It can be time consuming too. But guess what? PARTY HAT is here to help you with your party needs!

Unzipping 'Bag of Love' Tea Party!

May 12, 2013

Cookies, cakes and beauty products? What a perfect treat! Thank you The Butterfly Project for giving me the opportunity to attend the unzipping event for 'Bag of Love', which took place at Delectable by Su in Paradigm Mall!


I was super excited because this was my first time receiving a beauty BAG. I was looking forward to meet other beauty bloggers too. When I arrived at Delectable by Su, I couldn't stop saying 'Oh my God..oh my God' because the colourful decoration for the dessert table was so PWEETYYYY! Take a look!


Almost everything about dessert was there! And the best part..we got to attack 'em all! woohooo.







CUTE CUPCAKES!!




Ahaaaaaa........what's that on the table? Couldn't wait to unzip it!





Okay let's have some cakes and cookies before proceeding to the highlight of the event.
Oh my goodness... all of these pieces were DELICIOUS and high quality! Perfect texture, taste, and so much more! My hands couldn't stop taking in more after every bite. Ada macaroon, chocolate cake, carrot cake, sausage roll, many types of cookies! ahhhhh


Are you ready to unzip it together???


On the count of 10... 9...8..7...6...5...4...3...2..1.. Wahhh..nervous pulak! hehe.



HERE WE GO!


What makes Bag of Love different from the rest? They put their products in a BAG instead of BOX! Now that is genius because I can re-use the bag to store my makeup products and bring it when I travel, etc! 

In conjunction with Earth Month in April, Bag of Love went green with products that are of natural origins. The bag itself is made of bleach-free canvas and the lable tag inside is of recycled non-woven material. Enhancing beauty with Mother Nature :) 


  • Definite Contour Brush (Full-Size) RM88
  • Nuxe Brightening BB Cream SPF30/PA+++ (30ml) RM120
  • Decleor Hydra Floral Moisturising Cream (50ml) RM271
  • The Body Shop Quiet Dreamy Pillow & Body Mist (100ml) RM59
  • Phytojoba Intense Hydrating Shampoo (200ml) RM88
  • Burt's Bees Richly Replenishing Cocoa & Cupuacu Butters Body Lotion (170ml) RM62.80

What do I think of this edition?
 I LIKE IT! Just a few days before this event, I wanted to buy a contour brush but I don't need to do that anymore! And the Body Shop's Pillow Mist has been on my mind for quite some time because I find it cool.. Seriously, who came up with that is brilliant.

Not just Bag of Love, we got to take these home too! Giant lollipop and cute badges from Delectable by Su!

Thanks for having me and I truly enjoyed myself unzipping the bag, chitchatting with other bloggers, stuffing my face with yummy sugar treats, and belek-belek the beauty products. hehehe.
