VanityTrove Malaysia - The Shower of Summer (April) Edition

♫ 林俊杰 - 友人说 (feat.怀秋)
“Sweet, sweet burn of sun and summer wind, and you my friend, my new fun thing, my summer fling.”
VanityTrove Malaysia
It's summer! This particular season always brings to mind sun, sea and sand. Living in sunny Malaysia means that it's summer all year round though, so it doesn't really make a difference, lol.

'The Shower of Summer' April edition
"The Shower of Summer" is the theme for VanityTrove Malaysia's April edition, so let's take a look at what's in store for this month's trove!

Items inside April's VanityTrove
Perkins Nail Wrap (full-size, 20 strips)
This was the first item that caught my eye when I opened the box.The pattern I received was a simple orange, gold and green stripey design. I didn't really like it at first, but it does kinda fit the summer theme for this box. (^_^;)

Clarins White Plus Intensive Brightening Serum (5 sample sachets)
Clarins Spa Treatment Voucher
I'm pretty hesitant to try out skincare items because I'm afraid of breakouts, but one of my colleagues loves using Clarins products, so I gave both the samples and voucher away. :)

Kate Eyeshadow DB in BK1 (full-size, 1.6g)
I was pretty excited to see this in my trove, but unfortunately, the eyeshadow isn't really pigmented and doesn't show up well on my lids. It's great for those who prefer natural nude eyemakes though.

Issey Miyake L'eau D'Issey Florale (1ml)
This scent from Issey Miyake is very light, floral and girly, but somehow it just doesn't appeal to me even though I usually love floral scents. More of a spring rather than summer kind of scent.

ORIKS Gemstone Nano Platinum Aqua Watery Cream (1g x 3)
This cream is a moisturizer that is supposed to help smoothen wrinkles, tighten pores and brighten your complexion. Sounds like a pretty good product, just that I feel that a sunblock would be more suitable for this month's trove instead of a moisturizing cream.

Kila Doll Red Wine Q10 Mask (1 piece)
I enjoy using masks these days to boost moisture and also to relax after a long day, so I'm glad to see this in my trove. I've heard of this brand before but never tried it. Made in Taiwan.

I must say, this month's VanityTrove Malaysia is better than last month's, with 3 full-size items and a good mixture of cosmetics and skincare. However, it would have been better if they'd included something that had sunblock properties, in line with the 'summer' theme.
