“Let us step into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.”

VanityTrove Malaysia - March Temptress Edition
Yup, that's the theme for VanityTrove Malaysia's March 2013 edition. Quote above aside, the word "temptress" always brings to mind images of sultry beauties with seductive red lips, right?

The usual VanityTrove box
Open the trove to reveal the temptress within!
The VanityTrove Malaysia packaging is the same as last month's debut box. It is presented in a sturdy white box that has a pink pull-out drawer. The overall design, although not fancy, is simple, elegant and effective. I do not think they will be changing their box design anytime soon, as it is considered a signature of theirs by now.

Product info card for March 2013 VanityTrove Malaysia
There are in total 5 different brands in this month's trove (instead of 4 as listed in the card). To be honest, I am actually kinda disappointed with this month's items. Read on to find out what and why.

Asian Potions Hand and Body Lotion (mini sample jar)
I've never heard of this brand before, which is a good thing. Even though it is listed as Blooming Ginger Body Lotion in the card, the lotion sample itself doesn't have any ginger scent at all. The strongest scent I can detect is jasmine (and roses?), which I personally like. The lotion is very lightweight and does not feel sticky on the skin. :)
Asian Potions Hand and Body Lotion
Bio-Essence Bird's Nest Bio-Energy Firm & Brighten Eye Cream with SPF 15 (3ml)
This item was not listed in the info card. Nevertheless, I'd glad to have this to try out, as I've been trying to find a good eye cream. The side effects of staring at computer/phone screens 7 days a week. (⌒_⌒;)
Bio-Essence Bird's Nest Eye Cream with SPF 15
Sensiplus Hydrasilk Gel Tonic (2ml)
Sensiplus Hydrasilk Day & Night Cream SPF10 (5ml)
Again, another brand I have not heard of before. Sensiplus+ is formulated specially for sensitive skin. The gel tonic is used as a toner after cleansing, and the cream can be used both during the day and night (24 hours). 
Sensiplus Hydrasilk Gel Tonic and Day & Night Cream
Kanebo Lunasol Skin Fusing Powder Foundation (o.6g)
This powder foundation claims to smoothen any uneven surfaces and provide natural, shine-free coverage. Contains SPF 20 PA++.
Lunasol Skin Fusing Powder Foundation
Lunasol Smoothing Makeup Base (1g x 2sachets)
This item is also not listed in the info card, but basically it's exactly what it says on the sachet - it's a makeup base. (^^;) Use this with the powder foundation above to achieve temptingly flawless skin.
Lunasol Smoothing Makeup Base
Timeless Truth (TT) Orchid Extract Whitening Mask (1 piece)
The 3rd unknown brand, and is the only full-sized item inside the trove. It contains orchid, purple peril and chamomile extracts to help whiten, brighten and moisturize skin. The generous amount of essence (30ml) in each pack ensures that there is enough even for your neck and body.

Vouchers from Timeless Truth, Kanebo and Asian Potions
Last but not least, some vouchers from the brands in this month's trove. To be honest, I seldom (if ever) use these vouchers, as the expiry dates are sometimes too close, or the outlet is not easily accessible (or because it's not payday yet, lol).
Vouchers from various brands
There are a total of 6 sample-sized products and 1 full-sized item inside the VanityTrove March edition. Overall, it was a pretty good trove in terms of product availability. However, considering that the theme is "temptress", I would have expected at least a colour cosmetic item of the red varity. Red is, after all, the signature colour of a temptress. Based on the samples, I would consider purchasing the Asian Potion lotion, for its lovely scent and lightweight texture.
