Limited Edition July Vanity Trove x Infinity KOSÉ

Can't believe July is coming to an end in just a few days and I've yet to review about the July Trove. The initial plan was to come up with a vlog as well but I was too caught out with stuff and what not (now that class is starting too), so I only manage to write about this at the very last minute. So sorry for the delay and I guess most of you would have known what's inside this month trove by now anyways (: 

Unlike the usual pink Vanity Trove wording on the box, this month's box has a blue sleeve on it instead. I love how minimal the design is, yet still keeping it classy (:  

As mentioned in my vlog last month, July Trove would be a limited KOSÉ edition. I was expecting a range of blue coloured products, but to my surprise they are all mostly in pink! 

Introducing the Infinity KOSÉ Pure Advance :D

When you've noticed an increase in visible pores, it's a sign that your skin is beginning to change due to aging :O Hence, it is crucial to take countermeasures before they start to cause wrinkles and sagging which is every ladies' nightmare. I believe all ladies would want to look young and they will definitely feel flattered when someone compliment their youthful look HAHA Trust me, been there done that. My mum is quite a good example, she goes all red (and secretly overjoy inside) when people said that she's my sister instead of my mum hehehe :P

Alright, back to the main thing. With the 
Infinity KOSÉ Pure Advance line, infinite youth is possible which is also the theme of this month's trove. These products creates hydrated and elastic skin that appears poreless as it cares for the pores that have opened due to dryness, sagging pores, and blackhead cause by sebum and dirt. It's never too early to start maintaining your youth, in chinese they call it 保养 even when you're in the mid twenties (which reminds me that I'm getting older sobs) to remain beautiful and forever young in the future.
Total of 6 products that comes in the trove; 5 basic care products and 1 special care product.
  1. Pure Advance Oil Cleansing Gel (RM119.00 FOR 120G)
    It's a unique gel formula that spreads smoothly on your skin and turns into oil swiftly. Said to be effective in removing make up, and dirt from your face and unblocking your pores for smoother and brighter skin. Massage a cherry size of it gently on your face and neck before rinsing it thoroughly with water. Somehow it's quite mild and does not remove my make up that well, so I had to use make up remover before hand. However, after using it the cleansing gel,  it really does make my face smoother without the need of cleansing foam.

  2. Pure Advance Clear Up Wash (RM99.00 FOR 120G)
    After the cleansing gel, it is recommended to use this Clear Up Wash to remove any excess makeup and sebum from your skin, leaving behind clearer skin and smaller pores. I love its sweet scent.

  3. Pure Advance Essence Lotion II (RM169.00 FOR 160ML)
    Containing natural essences to rejuvenate, hydrate and plump up tired skin, this most will also reduce the visibility of open pores cause by dryness. Pour the Essence Lotion II on a cotton pad or your palms and gently pat into your skin after cleansing. It has watery texture and it absorbed pretty quick once applied on the face.

  4. Pure Advance Serum II (RM169.00 FOR 120ML)
    Dryness and water-oil imbalance in our skin can cause rough skin texture so this Serum II helps to adjust the balance of natural oils and water content in your skin so your skin will appear soft, fluffy and poreless after using it. Loving the light texture and how it doesn't leave a sticky feeling on my face (:

  5. Pure Advance Eye Jelly (RM180.00 FOR 20G)
    We all know that the skin around our eyes need extra delicate care and it's one of the first areas where sign of aging appear. This eye jelly is a true saviour as it instantly replenish moisture around the eyes, creating eyes that radiate with a vibrant impression. You will only need a tiny amount of jelly on every usage onto the tip of your ring finger, gently pat it around the skin of your eyes to get result instantly.

  6. Deep Protection UV (RM180.00 FOR 30G)
    Deep Protection UV thoroughly guards the skin from UV-A and UV-B rays with the highest SPF/PA protection. Its emulsion-like formula protects the skin's translucency and firmness,  makes fine wrinkles caused by dryness less visible. With its highly adhesive base that spreads smoothly over the skin, it creates a strong even film for smoother and moisturized skin. This has got to be my favourite of all, it's now a staple in my daily daytime skincare routine. It's important to protect your face from the harmful UV rays especially if you will be spending most of your day outdoors. I like how it gives a shiny finishing after applying it even if I'm just using a little amount and it doesn't make my face greasy after the whole day. 

Thanks to VT again, I've got something extra in my box this month which are products from Nature & Co! They are under the same company with  KOSÉ (correct me if I'm wrong) so these are products from Japan. Nature & Co products contain natural ingredients that are against animal cruelty, vegan and of best quality from across the globe. Their packaging uses only materials such as Glass, PP, PETG and acrylic which are user friendly, recyclable or biodegradable and hence totally environment friendly. 

Overall review: There is no full size products this month but I'm not complaining at all cause it's all  KOSÉ products they are giving and it's almost a complete set.  KOSÉ being one of the high end beauty products, I couldn't be more delighted. Plus, beauty boxes are meant to be giving sample/deluxe size products so that we have the chance to try different brands and products before deciding into getting a full size products or if it's suitable for us.

As usual, hop on to the links below for more details. 

August's trove would be another limited edition trove collaborating with Sasa, exclusive Hari Raya Trove with products worth more than RM180! So hurry up and subscribe one  for only RM50!

On an unrelated note, have a great week ahead ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ 
P/S: Now that I have quite a number of beauty products that I'm not using, it's better not to waste them. So I would probably do a giveaway next month. Stay tuned!
