I know, I know. I’ve wanted to talk about this for months and months but I’ve been putting it off. Apologies for that. There seems to be more and more to talk about, and some things get left behind. It’s not that this isn’t good, but you know… makeup is more exciting. Haha!
This is my longest post yet, so bear with me!
I used to wonder how much better a skincare product would be if the amount spent on advertising, packaging and hiring top notch celebrities and models was actually used on the quality of the skincare itself. When I was approached by an unknown company to test their products, I was initially hesitant. I can’t find any reviews online. In fact, I can’t find much info on the company at all. I did question its credibility, but then even big luxury brands were once a nobody. It takes time to build credibility, and most of all, people who are willing to give it a go.
So, VanityTrove went through a rocky start. Their debut box 2 months ago was average, their second box was a disaster, and now comes the third box: VanityTrove April 2013. Will this box redeem VanityTrove’s reputation or is it going downhill from here? The theme for this month’s box is The Shower Of Summer. I have 3 months to work out the relevant themes to what’s inside the box. I just can’t attune my mind frequency to what they are thinking. I absolutely cannot relate to it the last 2 months, but I think I finally get it this month!
Another month, a few more things gone…. and this time, they’re mostly skincare.
I don’t talk about moisturizers much, do I? I prefer to use up my moisturizers before changing them, that’s why reviews are few and scarce in between… unless I was sent something. Even that, I’d use it for 2 months to test it out, then go back to my old one to use it up, before coming back to the press sample to use it up. It’s a habit, and I think it’s a good habit I usually use hydrating moisturizers like Estee Lauder Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Cream (which I just realised I haven’t talked about), so I was intrigued by Estee Lauder Advanced Tine Zone Oil Free Moisturizer.
