After giving you all a glimpse of Vanity Trove June 2013, let me tell you about the beautiful surprises, which were there in my Trove...
The various brands to be included in June 2013 were ASTALIFT, APIVITA, KERASTASE, Touch in SOL, NEUTROGENA, CELLILUX, Liese and SKINC. The box had a white cover with pink engraving and the Trove was hot pink, with dark purple tissue wrap. There was a Vanity journal with information on the Month's brands, other beauty and fashion related material and adverts and gift coupons. I feel it added a nice touch to the whole experience.
