Review: Vanity Trove April 2013 Box: Shower of Summer

Here comes the beginning of second quarter of the year.
April.  It literally indicates Summer. Time to hit the beach!

Since the theme of the month is "The Shower of Summer", I thought of bikini, sunscreens and whitening skin regime. But I guessed wrongly. Well, of course, if all the fans manage to guess correctly, then how Vanity Trove gonna surprise each and every one of us? :P

Anyway, April is a real surprise to me.....because Vanity Trove is now RM50
With the same (or even better) quality and variety for your beauty needs!

Let's see what's in the box. I have arranged the product according to my liking. 
Rank #1 is the item I loved most, Rank #5 is my least preferred item.

#1 KATE Eyeshadow DB (Full-sized!@ RM49 (1.6g)

Kanebo KATE Eyeshadow DB creates a third color by mixing the 2 shades for beautiful gradation. Mixture of delicate pearl and smooth luster for defined eyes. Great for beginners and professionals, and comes in 8 different hues. 

I'm so happy that the April trove includes a full-sized eyeshadow for girls like me who love playing with make-ups!! I love both shades so much- Shimmering pink and brown are the perfect match ever! Suitable for all occasions, to create a sweet or sexy look :)

Love the shades to the max!! It works well on light make-ups :)

#2 ORIKS Gemstone Nano Platinum Aqua Watery Cream (3 x 1g) @ RM398 (50ml)

A moisturizer that smoothens wrinkles, tightens pores and brightens your complexion. It also boosts skin vitality and protects skin from harsh environment stressors. Great to lock moisture on skin and  maintain dewy and supple condition.

I am constantly looking for a good moisturizer. I want something non-sticky, easy to absorb and of course not too watery on the skin. I think ORIKS did pretty well as it feels light on skin but the texture is rather too flowy for me.

 #3 CLARINS Intensive Brightening Serum (5 x 1ml) @ RM295 (30ml)

Most advanced skincare to revive your skin's micro-mirrors at every layer, so that your skin appears clear, radiant and fair with an even translucent rosy glow.

It's an essential for Asians. Constantly hot weather and bright sun makes my skin gets darker and duller, time for CLARINS to work miracle on my skin. With prolonged usage, hopefully I'll be one tone fairer!

#4 NARCISO RODRIGUEZ For Her (1ml) @ RM278 (50ml) / RM378 (100ml)

A contemporary interpretation of femininity of honey flower, radiant amber and tactile woody esseneces. Made in Paris, this fragrant harmony develops gently and slowly, rounding out into the warm tones of sunkissed skin, dusted in a soft, velvety sensuality.

Ah I love collecting perfume! The smell is rather potent but I love it alot because a little amount is enough to last me for a day. It is a deeply comforting smell, and very addictive.

#5 KILADOLL Red Wine Q10 Mask RM2.90

Fit snugly. 100% wood pulp fibre from Japan.

Thanks VanityTrove for the little surprise! I have an extra item in the box which is not included in the brochure. A piece of mask that smells like red wine is a great idea for a luxurious pampering evening, isn't it?

#6 PERKINS Nail Wrap (Full-sized!RM39.90 (20 strips)

A transparent nail-wrap base that allows fuss-free sticking and creative mix-and-match with its wide range of designs and colours. Uniquely made in Korea, it comes in 21 stylish designs.

I have not tried this because I thought the design is a little funky for my personality. Well, perhaps any of you love this then I can do a giveaway on this item? Leave a comment and let me know! :)

Don't worry, PERKINS has alot more designs to choose from! For the girly girl type, I think the flowery pattern such as N10, N13 and N20 suit your femininity. How about something cute like Minnie Mouse inspired nails as shown in N18?

The box also includes some vouchers: 
#7 CLARINS : 50 discount voucher on any face / body treatment at Clarins Skin Spa KLCC

#8 Personalized Fragrance Profiling Experience @ RM30 (Fully Redeemable!)
with FREE Goodie Bag worth RM200

#9 ORIKS : Purchase Platinum Aqua Watery Cream and 
get a FREE Platinum BB Cream worth RM138


To sum up, I am a happy girl after receiving this month's surprise! Most satisfied among the 3 months-- February and March's Trove, because it has more cosmetics, less vouchers, and at least 1 full-sized item.
