Welcome to my blog!

If you are in for an adventure paired with lengthy, quirky, brutal honest thoughts then you are in the right place.

My name is Arisa and was a cosplayer for 12 years in Malaysia before settling down in Kyoto, Japan. Exploring Japan full time has been a long time dream of mine, so let's explore it together!

Vanity Trove [June Edition]

Seriously backlogged post but I'm slowly clearing them from my drafts >.<
I would like to personally thank Vanity Trove for supporting me throughout this whole year, surprising me with such lovely gifts every month especially when I'm having such a stressful work loaded month :-(
It is something I look forward to from all the beauty boxes out there (aside from Bag of Love as well, another personal fav ♥)

Yes, I love decorating my "worktable" and taking pretty pics of my reviewed stuffs, though in real life my table's mess is the last thing you would want to see :-D  

  •  L'Oreal Professional Liss Ultime Shampoo & Masque Liss Ultime Shampoo: RM50 (200ml) , RM79 (500ml) 
  • Liss Ultime Masque: RM67 (200ml) 
"Promises to repair and smooth the thickest and most rebellious hair which is infused with Oil Incell Technology (shampoo) & Polymer AR (masque) that soften, nourish and protects your hair against humidity and fight fizz." 

My review:  
L'Oreal brand is no stranger to me for a person who has such frizzy hair as me and spent half her life trying to find a miracle product lol. But in the end i just gave up on trying to fix my hair because I was born that way (oh well) so when i first tried this shampoo, smells amazing and it lathers quite easily. And not to mention how I just love the travel size it came in :-D
Pretty useful for people who are constantly on a go (like me) I carry my house in my bag with me daily, no kidding too! I have a change of clothes, toothbrush, body wash, towel, make up and you name it, i might have it. 
Some people refer me as the real life "Mary Poppins" lolwut  wtf. 

  • Celeb Beaute Celeb Lash : RM19.80 - RM22.80
My review: 
I am not ashamed to admit that I am an fake eyelash addict, call me ungrateful just because I despise my sparse short natural lashes but I'll just reply "WHATEVER" lol wtf. I have tried many other types of lashes that are made from natural soft fibres such as KISS ME and J Pop Corner ♥
So using this, it slightly made my eyes itch because the synthetic fibre was kinda thick and i have very thin eyelids, so fake lashes are prone to fall off once i open my eyes (=_=;;) Hate it when that happens.
But for first timers this would be a great pair to start with, easy application (not too flimsy) and it's affordable compared to the Japanese branded lashes I usually buy from Sasa (worth every penny nonetheless) :-D

  • Bifesta Eye Makeup Remover : RM26.90 (145ml) 
"Gently removes the heaviest eye and lip makeup without tugging and damaging your eye area which has hypo-allergic formulation with Vitamin E which is suitable for sensitive skin and lifts makeup instead melting it."

My review:
This is a make up remover that I've started using since early 2012? I can't believe it's been that long already O_O;;
Upon opening this trove and seeing it, I was literally jumping with joy because finally a travel size that i can dump in my makeup pouch! Yes, I shamelessly admit I love travel sized products because they are easy to carry around :D *kena piak* 
Best makeup remover ever, it even easily removes my waterproof mascaras without much effort and it isn't too oily either.

  • Soap Artisan Natural Lip Balm with Bees Wax and Vitamin E : RM12 (4g)
My Review:
Easy application, leaves lips feeling smooth and moisturized all day!
The formula of this lip balm is really soft, so under a slight pressure it crumbles a lil, but dont worry it won't break that easily lol. It is tad too oily for my liking (personal preference), smells great nonetheless :-)
If i were to choose between Burt's Bees and this, I would select Burt's Bees because of the peppermint taste lol wtf.
Bonus that it comes with a RM5 discount voucher too :-D Can't wait to see what other stuffs Artisan has to offer.

  • Decleor Hydra Flora Moisturizing Cream : RM98 (50ml)

My Review:
Great moisturizer to have on before applying a primer and foundation, absorbs easily with leaving a sticky residue on the skin.
It also smells great giving you an aromatherapy experience in the comfort of your own home, as far as I know that is one thing Decleor is known for :-D
Comes with a RM98 Signature Facial voucher by Decleor but I'm never the kind that would purposely go for facial because I don't even have the time to do all these things :-(
I really envy most beauty bloggers out there who really take the time actually go for all these stuff, even it is free i still wouldn't go >.<
Explains my neglected skin condition and ironically I'm a beauty writer lol wtf. Oh well.

  • Cocolab Aromatic Body Oil : RM99 (100ml)
  • Payot Pâte Grise Samples
My Review:
Cocolab: Sensitive nose alert so body oils are not my kind of thing >.< and I'm never the kind who likes the "oily feeling" lingering on my skin even if it's for moisturizing purposes.  Yes, I'm also not a spa person.

Payot: It's meant for overnight spot lightening face cream but with such a small sample, I don't see any changes/ improvements on my skin. Lol, all these stuff you would need to use on a daily basis to see the effects, so small samples isn't a really good option for this type of product.

I am loving Vanity Trove because they are slowly improving in terms of  values' worth for a monthly subscription fee of RM50. They make sure to stretch every single worth of your money monthly, so it's totally worth the price you paid, this June Trove came with 2 full sized products :-D

Can't wait for my August Trove to arrive because it's my first ever personalized trove!
