Beauty Review: Vanity Trove January

Sponsored Review

Whet your beauty appetite with these yummylicious products from the January edition of Vanity Trove!

Vanity Trove has returned for another wonderful month of beauty, wellness and surprises!

Here’s what the January trove has in store for us.

Wait for it…


The first item that caught my eye was this pretty little booklet that was titled Vanity Jan 2013 Issue.

I gaped as I flipped through the thick pages. It’s absolutely divine I tell you! It contains all the info about the products in the trove including their prices and places of availability. The booklet also makes a great boredom buster on the train as it provides mini articles on beauty and wellness related topics – like a pocket lifestyle magazine!

Everyone loves discounts!

Previously, discount coupons in the trove were given separately in the form of vouchers and brochures. In the Jan edition, Vanity Trove reorganized the vouchers and printed them on the Vanity Jan 2013 Issue with dotted tear lines for our convenience. Thumbs up to that!

Guess what? You ladies can also view the Vanity Trove magazine without subscribing to VT.
