Personalized Vanity Trove Box + Giveaway

Few months back, I blogged about the new VanityTrove where you get to choose your own beauty samples (HERE) to go into your own personalized trove. Since I have most of the products in the list before this, I had to wait for them to update with new beauty samples. So after months of anticipating, I'm glad I finally manage to get one for myself! Now that it's self pick instead of pre-pack, you won't be seeing reviews of the the same monthly troves that everyone has been getting. 

It didn't take me long to choose the 6 items I wanted cause I've been eyeing some of them for quite time after reading the reviews written by other beauty bloggers. 

Little did I know that VT now comes with a new packaging! Simple yet looking classy with the gold detail. 

And these are what I've chosen for my so-called Hilda's VT!
Too bad they no longer have Benefit Porefessional T__T
Talika Lipocils Expert | 10ml @ RM185.00 
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.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. It helps to lengthen them up to 36%, strengthen by up to 50%, and curl by up to 50%. 

I've been using this for the past two weeks (every morning ) and I couldn't believe at the result myself. All you have to do is to apply it on the root of your lashes, along your eyelid and on the eyelash itself. It was supposed to come with a mascara brush as stated in the instruction but all I got was this brush applicator. Most importantly, it shows pretty obvious and vast improvement, since my lashes dropped after the eyelash extension I did last month. Now they're back longer and even volumnized YAYYY Oh, it works on lower lashes too. Definitely a good investment I would say, but since this is not a full size products, it only last for two weeks of usage. 
Nuxe Nuxellence Jeunesse | 50ml @ RM180
After years of research, NUXE has launched Nuxellence®, a major anti-aging innovation that not only protect but also repairsmitochondrial DNA(1) to reveal the skin’s youth and radiance. It has a fondant and “second-skin” texture infused with subtle, feminine floral notes leaves the skin infinitely soft and velvety. 
Another product that has been highly raved so I'm curious to try it out myself. The serum is light in texture (as you can see in my photo) and it is easily absorbed into the skin leaving a light velvety soft feeling to your skin. One thing for sure, I love the smell of the product, a beautifully soft and feminine mix of Linseed Flower, Lily of the Valley, Heliotrope mandarin and Nectarine notes. I can still smell even after another layer of moisturizer. I just started including it into my morning skincare routine which I use it as a pre-moisturizer serum. Loving it so far cause even after a long day, it doesn't seem to make my face any oily.   
Skinz UV White Eye Brightening Essence | 15ml @ RM33.90 
An invigorating eye therapy that lightens the appearance of dark circles, strengthens the skin tissue around the delicate eye area, and eliminates eyebags & puffiness.
Elizabeth Arden Visible Whitening Melanin Control Night Capsules | 50 capsules @ $140
These capsules of nighttime serum will have your skin looking profoundly smoother, crystal clear and translucent. Delivering Vitamin C derivative, as well as SpectraBright™ technology, antioxidants and plant derived extracts that prevent melanin synthesis and fight the damaging effects of pollution. Just one serum filled capsule, massaged into the skin, each night both compliments and finishes off you nighttime beauty regime. 1 capsule is enough to cover the entire face and neck area.  
Elizabeth Arden, a luxury brand and when it comes to luxury whitening products, they don't make your skin stark white fully but they target areas of your skin that produce too much melanin then balances your skin out. I've been trying it out for a few nights and the results? Flawless, bright, and natural. I wake up to a bright radiant face instead of a greasy face. It was noticeable even after my first application itself. The one thing I dislike about it is the oily gel texture that I felt after applying it though it absorbed pretty fast after that. Did I say it's expensive? If only money grows on tree, I would definitely get myself  a full size bottle. 

KilaDoll Licorice & Job's Tear Face Mask | 10pcs/box @ RM39.90
 KilaDoll Licorice & Job's Tear Whitening Face Mask helps whitening with 100% herbal, natural and plant extracts suitable even for very delicate skin . It gives you translucent skin after several times of usage. KilaDoll Face Mask series uses wood pulp imported from Japan- super thin and soft to be perfectly fitted on your face.
TruDTox Naturally Purify | 5pcs/box @ RM29.50
TruDtox™ is a Swiss natural and organic botanical tea that WORKS GENTLY to cleanse toxins and pollutants from the body and help strengthen our body’s own natural detox organs. It is made of 100% organically-cultivated herbs, flora and teas that are traditionally known to help our body detoxify. TruDtox™ does not contain harsh laxatives and as such, will not create bowel dependency.

Not sure how gentle it can be, I haven't try this detox drink yet cause I'm having classes almost everyday so I don't want to end up going to the toilet throughout my classes. So I guess I'm gonna save this up after my Taiwan trip, I'm pretty sure I'll be in dire need of detox after all the gastronomic adventures.

If you realized, there are two items that I didn't review in this post because I decided to give them away along with a few products as well. Yes, a GIVEAWAY! 

 Skinz UV White Eye Brightening Essence, Skinlab Goatsmilk Tilley Soap, a box of Celeb Beaute Eyelashes and 3 pieces of Doll Licorice & Job's Tear Face Mask to be won!
