Customizable VanityTrove - Choose the beauty samples you want!

My sample subscription dream has come true: I can have my own curated box of samples of my own choosing.

It seemed inevitable that Vanity Trove would be the one to break through with a truly customizable beauty box system, with over 100 beauty brand partnerships and growing.

About the Customizable Vanity Trove
1. Based on your Beauty Profile and Preferences, they'll give recommendations on the products that will suit you best.
2. Then, the power is in your hands to pick and choose the beauty samples you want from the wide array of available samples.
3. All the products you choose will form your Personalized Trove. Hooray!
4. Wait up to 7 working days for this curated box to make its way to you.

How do you get your our own personalized trove?

STEP 1. Click here to register an account on
I already had an account, so I only had to login to

STEP 2. From the top-right corner, go to Account > Beauty Profile
You can see at this point I've only completed my General Information.

ALTERNATIVELY, go to Shop > My VanityTrove > Review your beauty profile. In fact, you can just click the Review your beauty profile link from this page and it will take you there :) You'll be asked about your skin, eye, brows, lashes...
Is there an option for shorter than short? T_T
They'll also ask about your hair color, type and length (option for longer than long here? LOL) Quick and painless 14 questions, and you're done!

Unlock more samples!
I know, sounds like a fun game, doesn't it? If there's any particular product you've been lemming for - and know there will be a lot - you can actually unlock those samples for you to pick them once they're released! Just off the top of my head, I'm thinking the Clinique Chubby Stick, YSL's Touche Eclat, NARS blush, MUFE HD Invisible Cover foundation, TheBalm Nude'Tude, UD 24/7 Glide-on eye pencil... I could really go on. All you have to do to unlock those samples:

1. Add them to Wishlist & 2. Like the Product

3. Like the Brand

The Facebook of Beauty
This is yet another new feature: you can also follow people on VanityTrove now! You can stalk their latest reviews, brand likes and product likes and products they wish for. So make sure you start the following people whose beauty regimens and opinions you're interested in!

By the way, you might have noticed an Exclusive Trove while browsing through the site? Just in time for raya, SaSa came up with a SaSa Exclusive Hari Raya Trove for a much-needed pre-Raya pampering ;)
I'll be reviewing this when I get it, but why don't you get it too so we can experience it together? Haha cheesy much! This sounds like a good deal though, RM70 for products worth over RM180, and I see a lot of products I've never heard of. There might be a gem for me to discover in there. Get the SaSa Exclusive Hari Raya Trove here.
- Cure Natural Aqua Gel (5 sachets in 1 pack)
- Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-purpose dry oil (10ml)
- Cyber Colors Cleansing Oil (200ml)
- Haruhada Yuzu Pore Cleanser *for nose* (50g)
- Neogence Amino Acid Cleansing Mousse (50ml)
