You know how I’m loving each and every Vanity Trove’s that I’ve received thus far…. there’s a really good reason for it and that is because month after month, VT Malaysia has come up with innovative trove’s featuring premium brands, long time favorites and even a mix of new brand names and home grown beauty products.
Now when I heard that Vanity Trove was going to collaborate with KOSE to come up with a Limited Edition Trove I was pretty excited. Why? For two good reasons.. Firstly .. KOSE is no stranger to the beauty industry. A well entrenched premium brand that has been around since forever…. I was looking forward to trying out some of their products. Secondly I really wanted to see what a ‘one-brand concept box’ was all about. Even though Vanity Trove’s sister company in Singapore have come out with these concept boxes before, this was the first of it’s kind in Malaysia.
So long story short, when my July Limited Edition Trove finally arrived, I was so ready to un-trove it. Was I impressed..well, you’ll have to read on to find out.
So as always..lets make a list of all the items :
- Pure Advance Oil Cleansing Gel, 10ml – RM 119/120gm
- Pure Advance Clear Up Wash, 10ml – RM 99/120gm
- Pure Advance Essence Lotion II, 30ml – RM 169/160ml
- Pure Advance Serum II, 30ml – RM 169/120ml
- Pure Advance Eye Jelly, 5ml X 2 – RM 180/20gm
- Deep Protection UV, 8.9ml – RM 118/30gm
Included also a voucher for a Free Trendy Pouch and Skin Consultation & Analysis with any purchase of KOSE Infinity Pure Advance Item.
Ok..so now onto my thoughts on this month’s trove. Firstly for a ‘one brand concept box’ this really hit the spot. Even though I can remember following my mom to the KOSE counter as a little girl, I have never purchased any product from them on my own before..so finally at age 34 I get to finally try them. How wonderfully ironic that it’s not one product but a whole range to see if this line works for me.
The Pure Advance line is catered for women from their early twenties to thirties as a first step to preventing ageing. Now admittedly yes.. I am no-where near 20 but it’s never too late to start on anti-ageing products and your skin will thank you for the attention in the years to come. Having said that I’m glad to be given this opportunity to experience the Pure Advance range which is designed to address visible pores and fine lines
The next thing I wanted to make a point about is the obvious lack of full size products. I don’t know if I have matured after 50 beauty boxes or so, but I sure have become more discerning. Frankly speaking, receiving a box-full of deluxe sized premium beauty products beats a full sized item of a so-so brand anytime. In testament I have a closet-full of full sized items from a variety of subscriptions that have been left untouched after the initial excitement because I haven’t the discipline to finish them.
Don’t get me wrong.. I would never turn down a full sized product if it came from a reputable brand..but I definitely think deluxe sized premium samples are also generous surprises. So back to my original question was I Impressed? I would not say I was ‘blown – away’ but yes!!! But having said that this ‘one brand concept box ‘ has definitely more than pleased me.
As for the folks at Vanity Trove, they have really come a long way from their 1st Trove… they have not made a Beauty Box faux pas of repeating items. Yet, monthly I’m delighted to see new items of reputable quality in their product line-up. What more, they are constantly engaging their subscribers and fans with tempting giveaways, awesome workshops and friendly customer service. And very soon, subscribers will be able to customize their very own trove. So for more on that do stay tuned for an update soon. Until later… this is me signing off for now… XOXO
