My First Customized Trove – Courtesy of Vanity Trove!

As you know, Vanity Trove has undergone a revamp and has implemented a smart system whereby you can personalize your beauty discovery and ‘build’ your personal Vanity Trove. I have joined in the fun to customize my Vanity Trove and hereby like to share my experience with you! 🙂

First step:

I went ahead to set up my beauty profile, preferences, ‘brand likes’, ‘product likes’ and ‘wish list products’ at Vanity Trove’s website. After which, the system will generate a list of recommended samples selections based on my own personal unique product needs.. There’s a wide array of beauty samples selections so it took me quite a while to pick and choose my beauty samples (Up to 6 items)!

My overall experience with Vanity Trove just got better and better after this revamp! Instead of having to wait every month for my monthly themed box, it took only 3 days for my first PERSONALISED trove to be delivered! In addition, i can choose my own samples and some of them are available in full size as well! It is so worth it as it only $25 per box (you can order as and when you feel like it)! Let me show you the 6 items that i have chosen 🙂

The first item that i have added to my Cart is feminine hygiene products (aka Sanitary napkins) from Adore. First time seeing this brand so i’m curious to know how it fares.. Good thing about samples is that i can try it out to see if it suits me before purchasing the actual size product. 🙂

Available Watsons and Gian, the ADORE’s feminine hygiene products are ultra slim, super absorbent and hygienic. If you are facing rashes / odor issue when you are having ‘the time of the month’, the sanitary napkins have anti-bacterial & skin-friendly functions, which have been tested and proven to be effective in suppressing bacterial growth caused by prolonged wear of sanitary napkins. ADORE products are not bleached and no recycled cotton is used which greatly reducing the risk of skin reactions and sensitivity. It even has a special compound strip that has negative ions, Far-infrared ray and nano silver to give you maximum comfort. Available in sanitary pad (24cm & 33cm) and Panty-liner (15.5cm),  ADORE products also have super high absorbent properties to protect you from embarrassing moments caused by side leaks and back flow leakages.

Adore Active Days (S$6.35) | Adore Dreamy Nights (S$5.15)

Have tried the 24cm sanitary pad and i have to say that i love the anti-bacterial properties the most! Odor is kept to the minimal and the material of the pad feels comfy on skin.. The pad absorbs fluid fast which prevent staining accident and it kept me feeling fresh.. Will definitely repurchase it in the future.

The 2nd product that i have chosen is the OLAY White Radiance cellucent™ White Essence Serum in FULL SIZE! Will be passing this product to my auntie as she is always on the lookout for reliable whitening products for her pigmentation issue. I’m glad that the customized trove gave me a more flexible opportunity to choose products that will best suit my family and my own needs.

The OLAY White Radiance cellucent White Essence Serum is able to provide users with fast visible spot reduction by boosting the skin’s whitening metabolism with CelLucent™ II Complex.

Recommended to use it twice a day on clean face and neck (after applying toner), it will:

Next, i have chosen something to serve as a backup for insomnia nights! 😡

Don’t really like taking pills to ‘induce sleep’ so i will need a healthy and natural solution. With just a bottle (30 mins to 60 mins before sleeping for maximum effectiveness), the GabaNite will help to relax your mind and unwind after a week of stress and anxiety. Safe to drink on a regular basis, the GabaNite contains natural plant-derived ingredients to supply the body with additional Gamma Amino Butyric Acid (GABA) and melatonin needed for relaxation and promotes sleep. The berry-flavoured drink is available at Guardian, 7-Eleven, Watsons, Unity, Nishino, John Little, Essentials to give you a well-deserved rest! Was given a bottle and i will give it a try when i am having sleepless night.

*Note: GABAnite should not be taken for those under 16 years of age, during pregnancy or lactating. If you are under the care of a medical professional, you should seek guidance before taking this product.

Another full size item, the Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes will be good on days when i’m feeling lazy!! The 100% alcohol & oil-free cleansing facial wipes will remove all makeup (even waterproof ones) quick and effectively. The pH balance facial wipes will not dries up skin, leave behind no greasy residue and it leave skin clean, soft and supple.

25 wipes in each pack

The Simple Cleansing Wipe contains no fragrance and it will remove all my makeup (even my waterproof eyeliner) swiftly! As you can see from the picture below, it remove 95% of my makeup in just 1 gentle wipe.. Moreover, it does not cause any stinging sensation and it leaves my skin refreshed! Best of all, it does not leave behind any soapy / sticky residue after use!


Next, i have added the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser into the cart as i need a gentle yet effective cleanser to use together with my Clarasonic… Originally formulated for dermatologists and highly recommended by them, this cleanser (also a make-up removal) is gentle on your skin and sensitive to your skin’s needs. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser will not strip the skin of natural protective oils or emollients, or disturb the skin’s natural pH balance. Recommended for everyone (even children), the cleanser is fragrance-free and non-comedogenic thus gentle for daily use.

I have combined the use of the Cetaphil cleansing with my clarisonic. Together with my cleansing tool, it lifts and cleanse off dirt effectively without stripping extra moisture off my skin. It doesn’t leave skin feeling tight and does not contribute to irritation / redness as well. As the cleanser isn’t foamy, you will feel as if you have not washed your face properly but the cleansing power is good as i don’t see much residue on my cotton pad after using a toner. Will recommend it if you have sensitive skin like mine and need a basis cleanser which won’t disturb your skin’s balance.

The Apivita Cleansing Purifying Tonic Lotion (75ml, Sample size) was in my June’s Trove and i quite like the refreshing texture + rejuvenating citrus scent hence i added this into the cart.  The toner leaves my skin clean, smooth and soft without stinging sensation / skin irritation.

Suitable for oily and combination skin, the purifying tonic lotion gently removes dirt and excess oil while it provides the skin with deep hydration. Containing 98% natural ingredients including propolis, citrus and tea tree essential oils, the natural cleansing agents remove dirt and excess oil without drying the skin.
