vanitytrove malaysia july edition : kosé infinity box

Infinity by Kosé is all about infinite beauty; an anti-aging skincare line that allows you to age gracefully using selected rare ingredients and deep concentrated formulas.

Endorsed by Taiwanese makeup guru, Robin Niu {Niu Er 牛尔老师}, the Infinity skincare line caters to three different anti-aging groups - the Infinity Kosé Pure Advance is recommended for women in their twenties to early thirties while Infinity Kosé is recommended for women in their thirties and beyond. The third line, Infinity Kosé Prestigious is recommended for women who are experiencing significant aging symptoms such as sagging of the entire outline of the face.

VanityTrove Malaysia's July edition features an entire trove dedicated to the Infinity Kosé Pure Advance line, which in my opinion is a brilliant decision on their part - not only do subscribers get to trial a complete line for themselves, the products included are of deluxe sizes {except for the eye jelly} which means subcribers get more uses out of it to test out its effectiveness.

The Infinity Kosé Pure Advance line consists of seven products in the basic care lineup and two products in the special care lineup. The VanityTrove Malaysia's Infinity Box features six of these items and in my opinion are carefully thought out selections.

Here is what's included in the July edition of VanityTrove Malaysia, the Kosé Infinity Box:
  1. Pure Advance Oil Cleansing Gel is a gel-like formula that is suppose to thoroughly remove makeup and pore blocking dirt, creating brighter skin. A full size tube retails at RM119 for 120g.
  2. Pure Advance Clear Up Wash is formulated to gently remove dirt and sebum, creating clear skin from deep within the pores with its light and meringue-like bubbles. A full size tube retails at RM99 for 120g.
  3. Pure Advance Essence Lotion II is a lotion that hydrates and plumps the skin. It also contains essences which moisturizes skin open pores caused by dryness and sebum, making them less visible. A full size bottle at 160ml retails for RM169.
  4. Pure Advance Serum II is a emulsion type moisturizer that claims to adjusts the oil/water balance in skin creating an illusion of soft and poreless-like skin. A full size bottle at 120ml retails for RM169.
  5. Pure Advance Eye Jelly is a hydrating eye gel that instantly replenishes moisture around the eye area. A full size tube retails at RM180 for 20g.
  6. Deep Protective UV SPF 50+ PA ++++, a full size tube of 30g retails at RM118.
The actual value of this box as usual far exceeds the retail value of it; this particular trove is a little over 3.5 times it's normal retail price so when it comes to value for money, I say it's definitely a thumbs up from me. When it comes to the content ... as of this moment, I'm not quite yet a Kosé convert as I've only used the set once prior to writing this post but then, isn't that what purchasing beauty boxes are all about anyway - trying out new products and selecting the best from the best?

Anyhow, I do commend VanityTrove Malaysia for kick-starting the idea of a single brand skincare trove to sample and I absolutely look forward to other exclusive troves like these in the future.

Speaking of which, VanityTrove Malaysia is featuring a Sasa Exclusive Hari Raya valued at RM180 for only RM70. So if you would like to glam yourself up before the festive season or surprise someone special with a trove of goodies, here's what is included inside the trove.

{... pst! Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil is in the list, just in case you missed it.}
  1. Cure Natural Aqua Gel - 5 sachets in 1 pack.
  2. Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil - 10ml
  3. Cyber Colors Cleansing Oil - 200ml
  4. Haruhada Yuzu Pore Cleanser {For Nose} - 50g
