Like most beauty boxes, Vanity Trove has sample-sized and mini products. The theme for this month is Valentine's, of course! Hence the appearance of a carded sample of Pure DKNY Rose. A rose perfume for February - so romantic, right? I also got samples of Skin 79 BB Cream, Origins Plantscription Anti Aging Serum, and Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution. All established brands that don't come cheap (except the Skin79, which isn't as pricey).
One of the other things I like about Vanity Trove is their inclusion of niche brands that you don't always hear of. In February's Trove, I got samples of Yuan Soap, Iderm Placenta Serum, and Phytomer Souffle Marin. I've never heard of any of these brands before, and a placenta serum? OMG. To be honest, I'm a little freaked out by this, but it looks/smells just like any other serum, so I guess actually using it won't be so bad, haha. And, this is only marginally weirder than the snail secretion-infused skincare I previously came across.
And a full-sizes item! I got a Lovemore Facial Mask as well. I've noticed that Vanity Trove seems to be really good at including face masks (particularly sheet masks) in their Troves. It's a good thing if you like face masks!
Lastly, this month's Trove also has a Vanity Mag, which has a small contributed article from yours truly! It's the first non-blog article I've ever written, so if it's not that great, bear with me - the next one will be better :) The idea behind the article was that I would highlight past Trove items that could come in helpful for Valentine's!
