This month, I received two beauty surprises from Bella Box and Vanity Trove. I have blogged about this beauty box service a while ago when I first received a box from Glamabox.

I think I am gradually warming up to this concept now. If the products featured fit your preference, and if the packaging is decent, these boxes are actually great for some self-pampering or as a gift for fellow girlfriends. Considering that at S$25, you can hardly purchase a mid-priced full size product, why not give your friend a beauty sampler surprise instead?

Let’s delve into the content of each box!

Items in Bella Box: Duchess Marden Body Serum 4ml, Nvey Eco Organic Eyeshadow in Charcoal Blue, Belif Hydra Sebum Control Essence 10ml, Ansley Pure Pop Superstar Eyeshadow and Eyeliner, La Perla Divina fragrance sample.

I would admit that the items in Bella Box doesn’t look very enticing at first. But what really drew my attention was the Ansley eyeshadow duo that comes with a matching gel liner and liner brush. I was very impressed by the travel-friendly packaging and ease of use. And this eyeshadow costs only S$16.90, which is affordable, and of course it would have been a good deal if a makeup enthusiast received this via the monthly subscription box from BB. Refer to my LOTD with the eyeshadow here.

Moving on to my Valentine’s Day box from Vanity Trove:

Items in Vanity Trove box: Skin Inc Pure Repair Whitening Eye Mask, 2 mini OPI nail polishes from Nicki Minaj Collection, Mekhalaliving Shampoo and Conditioner 30ml, Filthy Farmgirl Handmade Soap, Allerines Premium Tea, a charm from RinsieRose.com

I was wow-ed away by the packaging of my “trove”. To fit into the Valentine’s Day theme, the box contained rose petals and potpourri, emitting a sweet floral fragrance.  The items that attracted my attention were the Eye Mask which I have tried before when I had my facial at Skin Inc, OPI nail polish and the Mekhalaliving travel size shampoo and conditioner.

In short, I am pretty delighted with these two boxes of surprises. I maintain my observation that Bella Box would cater to ladies who are keen to try new makeup brands, while Vanity Trove has a good mix of established beauty products and other new mid-range items.

For comparison purposes, I have summarised the February items from Glama Box, Bella Box and Vanity Trove.

之前提到新加坡新掀起的美容样品订购服务热潮。本月收到了来自Bella Box 以及 Vanity Trove的美容礼盒。试用了3家不同的礼盒服务,本人已经开始接纳这样的idea,觉得偶尔给自己一个惊喜,或给姐妹淘一个惊喜,何乐而不为?
