Welcoming Vanity Trove - a new beauty box subscription in Malaysia

When I received an email to yet another offer for a beauty box subscription review, I was thrilled about it. I mean, I was a little bit disappointed when Fabulous Finds stopped way too soon and I was lusting over posts of beauty bloggers on their beauty boxes abroad.

So, here comes Vanity Trove.

It comes in a sturdy box that resembles a drawer. Contents are packed neatly in the box and packaging scores extra points.

A number of popular items in the February 2013 box :)

But I was a little disappointed at the March 2013 box. The items were way too small in size and could fit 1/4 of the box, I think (with the exception of the Timeless Truth mask). The Lunasol sample powder is something I had received before from ff and the colour of the powder foundation is way lighter than my skin tone.

Come April 2013, the box had good items in it.

Subscription to Vanity Trove's beauty boxes start at RM50 for 1 month. There are also subscriptions for 3, 6 and 12 months. 

What I like about Vanity Trove, is that every month, the boxes tell a different story. Like February is all about love, come March was Temptress and April is The Shower of Summer. Of course, the content doesn't necessarily fit the theme so we take what we get and enjoy the side messages :)

I am not sure I am overly impressed with the subscription, though. I am expecting much larger samples that one can use more than 3 times and not just vouchers that tell us we can get a certain discount only after we purchase a certain value of products/services. I know there is no such thing as free stuff... am merely sharing my thoughts on the beauty box.

I see a good number of really good brands that we can look out for in the subscription but as per any beauty box subscription - be ready for a surprise every month. I know I have found several items that I really like but there are also items that I don't really use. So, if you ask me, I don't think I am ready to subscribe just yet, not until I see more deluxe-sized samples in the beauty boxes.

If you want to find out more about Vanity Trove, do check out their website here. They also have a twitter account, https://twitter.com/VanityTroveMY and fb page, https://www.facebook.com/VanityTroveMalaysia.

Have you picked up any of their boxes yet? What do you think of them?
