Hi girls! May I see a show of hands of the ones who don't like receiving presents?
Since I can't see you (it would be freaky if I could!), I'll safely assume that everyone loves surprises, okie?
BOOOOOOO! Surprise! Did I scare you?
Saje nak mengejutkan kamu semua heeheehee!
Today, I would like to show you the beautiful surprises I've been receiving for the past three months. No, unfortunately it isn't from a secret admirer haha!
The popular and premier beauty discover platform, Vanity Trove, has recently launched in Malaysia!
Thanks to Vanity Trove, I first received their debut beauty box in February.
I was woken up by the doorbell and a parcel addressed to me!
What could be better than receiving presents the first thing upon waking up?
It feels like Christmas all over again.
There was a personalized, handwritten note inside too.
Thanks Valerie of Vanity Trove! xoxo
Ready to see my beautiful surprise?
It's very, very pretty!
Lovely beauty box of beauty products, make up and skincare!
Glorious, glorious treasures for every girl! Wheeeeeeee
Untuk para pembaca lelaki, aku hanya boleh kata, maaf je lah okey? Ataupun, ini juga boleh dijadikan idea baru untuk hadiah-hadiah yang selanjutnya, khas buat si awetmu, kan?
So guys, just admire the pretty, sparkly stuff this time round, alright?
A little card containing all the details of each product that this beauty box contained!
I think this is an integral part of every beauty box. I'm sure the recipients would love to know what each and every product can do, and whether or not our skin suitable enough to use the products given!
Here is a breakdown of the treasures in February's Vanity Trove:
1. System Professional (SP) Colour Save Shampoo
2. System Professional (SP) Colour Save Mask

4. ORIKS Wild Ginseng Stemcell Essence Twister BB Cream
5. Benefit POREfessional
6. B.LIV Off with Those Heads Blackheads Sebum Gel
7. Di Palomo Tuscan Rose Hand & Body Lotion
Now, let's take a closer look at them – one by one!
B.LIV Off with Those Heads Blackheads Sebum Gel
This does wonders in gently and effectively removes those stubborn whiteheads and blackheads,
+ as keeping oil secretions in control. I find this product very effective, lesser imperfections on my face!
Next in line is…
ORIKS Wild Ginseng Stemcell Twister Essence
This soft and velvety gel reduces visible pores, hydrates and nourishes the skin.
Comes out transparent and smells nice!
ORIKS Wild Ginseng Stemcell Essence Twister BB Cream
This is formulated with plant stem cells to repair and cover imperfections.
I liked its texture gave me a powdery finish after I applied it onto my face,
unlike some of the other brands of oily/sticky BB Creams I've tried!
System Professional (SP) Colour Save Shampoo and System Professional (SP) Colour Save Mask
These two are awesome stuff! Comes in a tiny package too, perfect for my travelling needs!
I refuse to use it for now, but when I get my hair back to red, I will
This silky and lightweight balm minimizes pores and fine lines with oil-free and Vitamin E formula.
This can be worn on its own or used under make-up, as a make-up base!
Di Palomo Tuscan Rose Hand & Body Lotion
Blended with moisturizing olive and sweet almond oils, it nourishes the skin, leaving it soft and smooth!
I loved its light rosy scent that was mild yet distinctive!
The arrival of March can only mean that new beautiful surprises are coming!
This time, I was surprised at work when I beeped the delivery man into my office.
Got all excited to unwrap my new beauty box!
Not one, but TWO surprises on my office desk!
One is for me, and I got the other one for you. More about that later!
Want to see it already? This box is just as pretty!
Suddenly my black Monday is filled with colour and thrill!

4. Etre Belle Sensiplus Hydrasilk Gel Tonic
5. Etre Belle Sensiplus Hydrasilk Day & Night Cream
Kanebo Skin Fusing Powder Foundation
It provides natural coverage and ensures a shine-free appearance with SPF 20 PA++ powder formula!
Tried and tested, I like using this as it blends and melts into my skin when I spread it onto my face.
Gave me a dewy and radiant complexion for the day too. Yay!
To those with skin sensitivity issues, rejoice!
The following products works to soothe and moisturize delicate and irritated skin.
Etre Belle Sensiplus Hydrasilk Gel Tonic and Etre Belle Sensiplus Hydrasilk Day & Night Cream
Armed with sill proteins, white tea and pure vegetable ingredients, this cream protects
allergy-prone skin against environmental stressors and helps to relieve irritation of skin.
Bio-Essence Bird's Nest Bio-Energy Firm & Brighten Eye Cream with SPF 15
Just what I needed for my eye area!
I keep it at work just in case I feel tired or if my eyebags begin to weigh a tonne LOL
Just squeeze and apply around your eye contours, beneath and all around the eye!
Asian Potions Blooming Ginger Body Lotion
It is made from natural flowers, fruits and plant essences to moisturize your skin and improve firmness!
Delicately scented with ginger flowers and a light mix of Asian florals too, thus the slight hint of fragrant scent.
P/S The ginger provides deep inner calmness too.
Timeless Truth TT Orchid Extract Whitening Mask
This mask is excessively pampered with orchid, purple peril and chamomile extracts…
… and packed with so much moisture!
These essences whitens, brightens and duh, moisturizes the skin!
The most unique part is that this mask sheet is stretchable and form-fitting,
which gave me perfect comfort and full coverage!
Don't believe me? Well, check out the following two photos!
It even tucks behind my ears…
…and my beneath my chin/top of neck! Pretty neat, huh? It's something new to me!

KilaDoll Red Wine Q10 Mask
This aids skin protection by maintaining the firmness and moisture; promoting elastic and younger skin.

In my honest opinion, after testing and reviewing ORIKS products for the past three months, I've grown to love the stuff from ORIKS. They have such good formulas and not to mention, a really high quality make as well.
Such an innovation for beauty products!
CLARINS Intensive Brightening Serum
This serum is the most advanced skin are for fairer, healthier skin.

clear and radiant. If you are looking to brighten your skin with a rosy glow, try this, girls!

Boasts a palette with two shades that can be used individually or mixed.
I prefer to mix mine and blend it into a different colour where the colours meet.
ISSEY MIYAKE Parfums Pleats Please (EDT)
This is my favorite product this month! Its fruity fragrance formulated by the crossing of apples
and pears, Topped with dashes of peony and sweet pea scents is too good a gem to pass up.
