Oh i've been thinking so much about the past and damn it i miss so much of it.
The cineleisure days.. The school uniform outing days.. The downtown east days.. The underage clubbing days. How i wish i can rewind back time.
These people and memories are still so clear to me in my head. I guess that was when i was really happy. It's nice to think of happy thoughts. x

Sorry for the long hiatus but I’m back with great and exciting news!
I can’t wait to share this with you guys this specially customized VanityTrove box by me with love!

Other than the crazy and unbelievable fact that you’ll see my face on the box, you will get 13 personally picked beauty items sent to your door step and a little message for you girls..

Now that i have the box with me, Let's open it up and check out what's in the box!

Dr Jart+ -Bounce Beauty!

The Bounce Beauty by Dr Jart+ is a unique bouncing-textured beauty balm formula with rich moisturizing and brightening properties.

This multifunctional BB cream is enriched with hydrolyzed collagen and pomegranate extract to firm and tighten skin elasticity, brighten and hydrate. The moist-textured balm is also good in concealing blemishes and enlarged pores, corrects uneven skin tone and texture, and delivers powerful SPF 30 protection against harmful UV rays. I personally that this is great for on-the-go touch ups, and the ultra- moisturizing formula leaves skin fresh, beautiful, and healthy-looking!
Another plus point about this product is it is cruelty-free and dermatologist tested. Check it out over at :

SkinFood Premium Tomato Whitening Sleeping Pack & Whitening Essence
The whitening sleeping pack (Left) contains 30% tomato extract. This can be use after your toner and apply it all over your face and massage gently for about 10 minutes and it helps in skin whitening.
This whitening essence (Right) contains 20 % sun-kissed tomato extract and stabilized vitamin C derivative. It is an intensive brightening serum that promotes pure, bright skin. Really like this because tomato essence has the highest percentage of whitening! And also love how smooth my skin is after using it.

Too Cool For School Replenish Hydra Serum & Too Cool For School DinoPlatz Pearl Bay Invasion
Good news, more whitening products! “Too Cool for School” is a Korean Brand and it specially designed for age 18-25 years old therefore this product is perfect for people like me! I feel that their items are all so cute and fun designed. All is all, it is very affordable so anyone can get it. The unique point of this product is that it contains vitamin B complex and gives a high moisturizing effect therefore making your skin dewy throughout the day.

If you fear that your make up will overpower the serum, fear not! The folks over at Too Cool for School has came out with a product called Dinoplatz Pearl Bay Invasion in #1 Mother of Pearl which is a liquid illuminator that you can mix with your face base and/or it can even be used to highlight certain area of your face! How cool is that? Love how it creates a three-dimensional look to my face, and my skin still stays natural ~

My Beauty Diary 2-Step Snail Repair Mask by My Beauty Diary
Another product that many of us can relate to and have already knows of.  It is the “My Beauty Diary 2-Step Mask Repair”. What makes this mask different from the others in the market is that it includes a Snail Mask and a Snail Repair Cream, which contains mucus secreted by snails. I know that it sounds funny to you guys but it is actually highly popular in South Korea. One of the reasons why it is highly popular In South Korea is because it is rich in protein, the ingredient effectively increases skin’s elasticity, and therefore your face will always look smooth. At the same time, it strengthens moisture locking, has a repairing effects, highly moisturizing and nourished the skin. Koreans are all about skin and this product has it all, which is why it is highly popular in South Korea! ^^

Vichy Normaderm Night Detox by Vichy
Those with oily skin listen up! This is one product that can blow away all your problem. Normaderm Night Detox helps to control the production of sebum and purify the skin.

Normally, people who have oily, blemish skin tends to suffer from an over-production of sebum during the night, when they are sleeping. By morning, the skin will feel dirty and look dull with additional blemishes. That can be a burden for many if they are going out to meet people during the day and as a result, they tend to apply layers of make up which is not good for the skin.

Normaderm Night Detox not only helps to control the production of sebum and purify the skin, it reduces the appearance of blemishes and the pores will look less visible. Which is wonderful! On top of that, your complexion looks radiant and skin feels clean and purified.

Enavose Probiotics Exfoliance Gommage by Enavose

Enavose brings you a unique and effective way to manage the health of your skin with microorganisms known as probiotics. Think of probiotics as good bacteria that help exfoliate dead skin cells, eliminate comedones, cleanse your pores and strengthen your skin against breakouts by creating a barrier against bad bacteria
Infused with bitter almond acid and a soothing flora blend, the renewal gel keeps skin hydrated and soft whilst giving tired skin a new lease of life leaving it nourished and radiant.

How to use: Apply on dry skin. Squeeze a sufficient amount and dot on forehead, cheeks, chin, nose and neck. Massage about 1 to 2 minutes. Rinse off with water after use.

It helps greatly with unclogging pores, especially tiny little comedones and stubborn blackheads. Plus, because of the moisturising properties of this exfoliant, skin doesn’t feel dry after use! Strongly recommended!!

Dr. Wu Renewal Cleansing Mousse with Mandelic Acid by Dr. Wu 

Winner of Cosmopolitan’s Red Book Awards for ‘Best Brightening Cleanser for Thorough Cleanse’, this mild, soap-free cleansing mousse cleans and exfoliates gently without any irritation. This brand is very popular in Taiwan and it is extremely suitable for rough and sensitive skin!
Contains anti-oxidant and anti-irritant properties to soothe skin inflammation, especially beneficial for blemished and acne-prone skin. All you need is to pump a small amount of mousse to apply on face and neck using gentle, smooth circular movements. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry. Use day and night, after make-up remover. I personally love the light texture and how my skin feel squeaky clean after usage.

SKIN INC Repair Pycnogenol Serum by SKIN INC
Extracted from the bark of French coastal pine, this super anti-oxidant is 350x more effective than Vitamin C and 170x more powerful than Vitamin E. It is combined with EGF, a protein found naturally in skin that increases DNA synthesis and cell growth that moisturizes the skin and reduces the signs of ageing skin.
Using Japan-developed products that contain 0% paraben and 0% fragrance, Skin Inc’s signature product is their range of Encapsulated serums that contain pure active ingredients. 

This Pycnogenol Serum is 1 out of 9 serums that are used for concocting a My Daily Dose customized serum. Comes in a cute red packaging and I absolutely adore how this bottle is so light and  travel friendly yet still gives amazing results to my skin.

The serum is very light and runny in terms of texture and all you need is 3 drops twice daily before applying moisturizer and gently tap it into your skin. It is combined with EGF, a protein found naturally in skin that increases DNA synthesis and cell growth that moisturizes the skin. It helps solve stressed and sun-damaged skin which came in just in time for me especially when school deadlines are piling up. As Skin INC offers many serums, I recommend that you take the Skin identity check to see which “My Daily Dose Serum” suits you. You can do the skin check at

Range of products from Carnation Footcare
From left to right :
Carnation Footcare Cracked Heel Cream
Carnation Footcare Intensive Moisturising Foot Cream
Carnation Footcare Exfoliating Foot Scrub
Have never paid much attention to my feet and I realized that cracked heels, heel pain, blisters, together with aching and tired feet are issues that I faced more commonly. Prolonged standing can also contribute to the condition, as can wear open-backed or thin-soled shoes. Decided to give these products a try and I am thankful I did.

Here’s the exfoliation process and all I need is a small amount and look at the amount of dead skin coming out.

TADA ~ After washing it out, it leaves my feet feeling smooth and reinvigorated.
I mentioned that I tend to experience cracked heels and heels pain once in a while; the Carnation Cracked Heel Cream revives rough, dry, and cracked heels. I have tried it and it rehydrate my skin and the peppermint oil in the cream left my feet smelling fresh and feeling cool. The same thing happened to my foot when I used the foot cream. On top of that, the cream is non-greasy and easily absorbed.

And there you go, my own personal review on my VanityTrove box!
