I have some exciting news to announce! I’m ambassador! No, not ambassador of Singapore, silly (I wish). This post marks my first online ambassadorship with VanityTrove.com! I’m so excited. As their ambassador, I will be responsible for unveiling each month’s trove to you here on roseannetangrs.com. Plus, I’ll be holding random giveaways every now and then and I invite you in advance to attend all of them.
If you haven’t read my previous post on VanityTrove, VanityTrove hand-picks a set of themed beauty products and delivers them to your doorstep every month. It’s a fantastic concept and I totally love the picks that VanityTrove gives out including high end brands like Lancome to Clinique and niche brands like Yadah. It’s absolutely perfect for people looking to try new products every month or to expand your beauty knowledge about what’s swimming out there. And, hey who doesn’t like surprises delivered to your doorstep, either that or you, my friend, have a crush on the mailman. I wouldn’t blame ya. So let’s see what’s in January’s Trove shall we?
First of all, I have to say that the VanityTrove comes packaged really nicely, like one of those boxes you take out from Louis Vuitton. Except, it’s white and pink, not brown, and well not Louis Vuitton. Besides the fact, it’s a hard board box, pink and your stuff is neatly encased in pink tissue paper. What’s not to love?
The box slides right open!
Every box comes with a personal letter from Victoria Tan, spokesperson of VanityTrove, welcoming the month ahead. It’s really personal. This trove is about rejuvenation, after the hustle and bustle of the festive season. It’s time to go natural and organic this month so it’s totally appropriate that they’re including brands like YADAH, which happens to be a new Korean brand.
But, seriously, enough talk, and let’s get hauling!
1. Leader’s Clinic Face Mask – Aquaxyl Filler 2-Step Face Mask, RRP: 10 sheets for $75 Full Size
I’ve talked about Leader’s Clinic quite a bit! They’re a dermatologist tested Korean skincare brand that boasts top korean celebrity clients. It’s no wonder that VanityTrove was nice enough to include this little beauty in the box. This face mask is part of a best-selling range in Korea and is known for it’s ultra thin silk cellulose material that glides on like a second skin. They’re also made of certified plant extracts, have no artificial preservatives and are Paraben-Free! This Aquaxyl Filler mask in particular is a 2-step face mask with an ampoule that maximizes the potential of the mask when applied first. It aims to brighten, tighten pores and moisturize your skin.
Quick Beauty Tip: Put your face mask in the fridge for a really relaxing session!

2. YADAH Beauty Pack, RRP: 1 pack for $10.90 Full Size
YADAH Skincare from Korea is newly launched in Singapore and has launched it with VanityTrove! This range boasts organic ingredients based on natural plant extracts like plant oil, floral water, essential oil, barks and even traditional herbs. The main ingredient in most YADAH skincare products is the Opuntia ficus extract or cactus extract which has strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and is great for sensitive or troubled skin!
In the beauty pack, you get a YADAH brightening face mask with active ingredients like mulberry, green tea and orange extracts that help moisturize and brighten your skin. You’ll also receive sample sizes of the Pure Green Toner, Pure Green Emulsion, Sun creams, brightening ampoule, and even a cleansing nose pack. I can’t wait to learn more about this brand and I have to say this is a pretty good way to get a taste of basically everything!
Quick Beauty Tip: Confused at the number of products to apply in your morning or night routine? Simply think – cleanse, tone, apply serums or ampoules and then apply your moisturiser – it’s that simple!
3. Olivella Shampoo and Conditioner, RRP: Shampoo (500mL for $17.90), Conditioner (500mL for $26.90) Full Size
Time to revolutionize your showers! The Olivella Shampoo and Conditioner is formulated with 100% Natural Virgin Olive Oil which makes these two babies extra moisturizing. It de-tangles while hydrates effectively and is suitable for normal, dry, and chemically treated hair! Cool beans. I’ve never tried Olive Oil Shampoo and Conditioner before!
Quick Beauty Tip: Olive oil isn’t only a great hydrator, it’s also a great natural make-up remover. Substitute it with your ordinary make-up remover and it takes away even the toughest of make-up while giving you more than plenty skincare benefits!
4. Angel Lip Tint & Cheek Stain (Juicy Red), RRP: 3mL – $10.90 Full Size
This is probably the coolest product in the box. We all know Benefit’s Benetint and we are probably real familiar with their Posietint and now the new ChaChaTint. To be honest, I’m scared of tints. I tried it once in the girl’s bathroom to touch-up at uni and ended up looking like Krusty the Clown’s late grandma. But, that was before I learned how to use it properly.
The Angel Lip Tint & Cheek Stain is a special tint because the colorants are paraben-free and are extracted from plants – mainly red tomatoes and gromwell flowers! I find that pretty amazing. Safe to say, it has natural and safe ingredients that help to enhance your natural lip and cheek color, giving you a beautifully rosy glow. Here it is on yours truly. I dabbed a bit on my fingers (it’s very watery) and applied it on my lips and cheeks. Pretty right?
5. Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, RRP: 50mL for $75 Full Size
This is one of Clinique’s best selling products, and is termed the “ultimate drink for your skin.” It’s a light and comfortable gel that plumps your skin for a full 24 hours and is ideal for all skin types. The formula is known for giving and instant radiance and supple boost the skin and makes a great travelling companion after a long haul flight. We all know how gross we get after those trips! I haven’t tried this product from Clinique before either so I’m defo looking forward to it!
Quick Beauty Tip – Know your skin type first before diving into buying a moisturiser. You always need to wear a moisturiser if you have dry skin but those with oily skin may produce enough to skip this step in their routine.
And there we have it, this month’s January Vanity Trove!
Hope you enjoyed this haul! and Yay, I’m an ambassador!
