My very own Vanity Trove!

Remember I mentioned about Vanity Trove's new customization feature? Well, the lovely people from Vanity Trove gave me a chance to get one. And I did!

You had a whole page of items to choose from! Vanity Trove gives you free hand to pick anything you want from the whole list available! I decided to go for an all rounder box which covered the body, hair and face. These are my picks!


When I got this box I immediately dived in and tried everything so for the first time in never I have something to say about my experience with the products in the box!

For the Hair:

L'Oréal Professionnel | Liss Ultime Shampoo (500ml/RM79)
A smoothing shampoo for unmanageale hair. It uses the oil Incell technology to help provide control and nourishment to tame unmanageable hair. Oil Incell is a combination of Incell and nourishing oils (olive + argan) to soften, nourish and enhance the texture of the hair fibre.

L'Oréal Professionnel | Liss Ultime Masque (200ml/RM67)
A smoothing masque for unmanageable hair. It nourishes, smooths and helps to protect against humidity. This hair mask also uses the Polymer AR technology which envelops the hair to help protect against humidity and locks in moisture.


I think this is my second bottle of Liss Ultime Shampoo I got from beauty boxes so I could not ignore it anymore! For 2 boxes to feature this product it has to be good right?

Well, since this is my first time using L'Oreal Professional products I would say - not bad. The shampoo doesn't really foam up much for me but it still cleanses quite well. And the conditioner, well, it was a little lighter than what I am used to. Maybe I am picky because I am using the super thick Lush BIG solid conditioner. Hmm.. The fragrance for the Liss Ultime range is quite pleasant and light. No stay in yfour hair forever here. If you were wondering, my flash made the color go all funky. These are actually in a pale purple bottles and not the blue/grey you see in my photo here.

For the Body:


Goat milk is naturally rich in skin smoothing lactic acid plus rejuvenating vitamins A and D. Renowned for its soothing and calming properties, it has been favored for generations as ideal for sensitive skin and treating dry and distressed skin conditions.


Tilley | Goat Milk Soap (Single Bar/RM12)

Wonderfully creamy in texture, Tilley’s goat milk moisturizing soup bars are gentle on sensitive skin and are free of harsh detergents and chemicals. Further enriched with skin conditioning Organic Shea Butter, Organic Jojoba Oil and Organic Cocoa Butter. The skin soothing body bar gently cleanses the skin.

Pure South | Goat Milk Milk Body Lotion (255ml/RM59)
 Pure South Organic Body Lotion with Fresh Goat’s Milk is highly moisturizing and nourishing for the skin. Scented with native Australian plant extracts and pure essentials oils which soothe and revitalize the skin naturally. 


I have both if this just sitting in my drawer and I did not realise it! How blur can I be?!
I finally finished The Body Shop soap bar that I have. Just in time for to try this out. Coincidence?

Well, I LOVED this soap bar! Unlike most people who avoid soap bars because it is said to dry out the skin I actually like using soaps. It gives me that squeaky clean feeling which only can be achieved with bathing with (most) soaps. I have tried quite a few types and this is the one is the makes you squeaky clean but doesn't dry you out. And the best part - a little goes a long way! All you need is a little for the whole body. The scent is quite sweet but really faint for this soap. Or maybe my nose is a bit off these days =/

I slapped on Pure South Goat Milk Body Lotion just before bed and woke up to smooth soft skin. It's texture is actually quite light and is lightly scented. It glides on easily and absorbs into the skin really quickly too! No 'using circular motions' needed to make this lotion go in your skin.

And last but not least, products for the eyes:

Talika | Lipocils Expert (10ml/RM185)
This amazing lash enhancer is composed of a blend of natural actives from the inventor of the original eyelash growth product in 1948 in France. It has no side effect. Whether you feel your lashes look too short, sparse, brittle or lack shine and curl, or if you just dream of longer, shinier, sexier looking lashes, Lipocils Expert® is your answer.

Bifesta | Eye Makeup Remover (145ml/RM26.90)
Gentle to your delicate eye area and eyelashes. High cleansing power ensures that no rubbing or tugging is required to protect eyelashes and delicate skin around eyes. Dual Effect of water and oil layer thoroughly removes even the waterproof mascaras. Non-sticky texture & High cleansing Ability Its cleansing power can even remove heavy eye makeup and waterproof mascara. All-In-One eye cleanser. This product is contains deep sea water, Vitamin B & E. Non-sticky texture & moisturizes while removing eye makeup.

OK, I realised that I don't have anything to say on the Talika Lipocils Lash Enhancer. It says I need 28days to see results and knowing that I will be away on a short getaway and forget all about this, I shall start using this only after I get back! Promise!

I do not wear make up generally but I did just to try this out! I had on eyeshadow, a little liner and my brows done with my Sleek Eyebrow Kit which is a wax and brow duo. All I needed was a semi soaked piece of cotton and it all came off. Very easily I may add. Although it is a 2 layer (water and oil) remover, it seems less oily than my regular eye makeup remover.
