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!
Happy April Fool’s Day!
I want to start April by leaving some old stuff behind. I used up quite a few things since the last Empties post, and I want to share with you. There are a few makeup items I devoured – pretty happy there! So, let’s start with makeup
Another month, a few more things gone…. and this time, they’re mostly skincare.
Yes, I know I know. Clarins has been around for ages, and I haven’t tried any skincare products from them, except the sunscreen which didn’t work well for me, and only me. To me, their counters are not very noticeable, I have to consciously look for them and the SAs here are rather quiet. Anyway, strategic marketing aside, I’ve been contemplating on repurchasing my favourite whitening serum, when I came across this duo at the airport. The price point is very attractive, so I picked up their White Plus HP Intensive Whitening Smoothing Serum.
