[Review] Vanity Trove- July 2013

The Vanity Trove of July 2013 came packed with beautiful surprises, with the theme 'Midsummer Gala'. The products with this theme are meant to rejuvenate the heat-exhausted skin in the mid of summer season. 




The trove comes with a fashion & beauty journal Vanity, which gives detailed information about the products to be included in the trove every month and also has some offers and discount coupons. The brands selected for July's Midsummer Gala were VICHY NORMADERM, NEUTROGENA, JANE IREDALE, PHYSIOGEL, HERBORIST, D'GLAMOURIC, SKIN INC and AVANCE. I received a lot of products in July Trove and let me tell you all about them. 

1. Physiogel Cleanser, 60ml (Retail Price- S$18.90 for 500ml) is a soap free cleanser suitable for all skin types and the best part is that it can be used with or without water. It helps in maintaining the skin's moisture balance. When used with and without water, it did not cause dryness. It can be used on face and body. It  can also be used for babies (printed on the cover). Value of sample- S$2.27.

2. Physiogel Cleanser, Lotion and Cream Sachets, 10ml, 10ml and 3ml (Retail Price: Cleanser- S$18.90 for 500ml, Lotion- S$33.90 for 200ml, Cream- S$22.85 for 75ml) The lotion helps in skin repair and hydration. This can also be used for the face and body. The Cream contains natural lipids, similar to those in the skin and revitalize and protect the dry skin. The samples could not be tried yet because of the sachets (This is why I don't like Sample Sachets!) Value of Samples: Cleanser- S$0.38, Lotion- S$1.75, Cream- S$0.91.

3. SKIN INC Repair Pcynogenol Serum, 30ml (Retail Price- S$169 for 30ml)- In the June Vanity Trove, I received SKIN INC Regenerate Vitamin A Serum (which I am currently using and loving it!) and this time, out of the two products selected for the trove I got Repair Pcynogenol Serum containing anti-oxidants that helps in moisturizing skin and combating ageing. It has beady texture and when tried, the serum leaves the skin moisturized and soft. I think I am already falling in love with this serum. The other product was SKINC Regulate Vitamin C Serum, which helps in minimizing the pores and outbreak of pimples. The selection of product for my trove shows the personalization of trove where I mentioned in my beauty profile that I have no pimples or any other skin inflammation. 





Also, there is Voucher from SKIN INC for a free treatment. Waiting to go for it as well :)
