My First Petit Vour Unboxing

My skincare is as close to natural as possible, but natural makeup is foreign to me.  I have tried some mineral makeups in the past, but I know that the natural makeup world is vast and expanding.  This year, I want to try more natural makeup brands.  I am not sure where to start, so I have subscribed to Petit Vour.

Petit Vour is a monthly subscription service.  For $15, you receive five natural, vegan, and cruelty-free cosmetic samples.  I thought this would be a good way to get started with natural makeup.

Here is what I got in my first box!

Petit Vour February 2015 Unboxing

February's theme was mood-enhancing and confidence-boosting beauty products for Valentine's Day.

Balanced Guru Scrub Me Body Scrub - 1 oz | 8 fl oz, $23

I love body scrubs.  My skin gets dry very easily, and I try to keep the flakes at bay with exfoliation and high quality moisturizers.  This natural scrub has a limited number of ingredients (and I can pronounce them all, yay).  This contains raw sugar, organic coffee, coconut oil, babassu oil, cocoa butter, spearmint,and ginger.  It smells SO good!  I love the scent of coffee and mint, so this is a winner for me.  I like that it exfoliates but it doesn't hurt my skin.  It's gritty without being abrasive.

Ellovi Mint Chocolate Body Butter - .5 oz | 3.5 oz, $26

Mint chocolate smells so good to me.  It also happens to be my favorite flavor of ice cream :)  This also has a limited number of ingredients (sensing a theme here?), and it has an oily feel that I love.  It only has six ingredients!  The ingredients come from macadamia nut, coconut, marula nut, hemp, and shea, and essential oils.  And it smells amazing!

Harvey Prince Damask Rose & Gardenia Perfume - 1 ml x2 | 8.8 ml, $26

These are the only products I was disappointed in receiving.  I don't wear a lot of perfume, but I do love Harvey Prince scents.  It is one of  the few brands of perfumes that don't make my husband sneeze.  I do wish I'd receive only one perfume sample in my box, but they do smell lovely.  I love the Damask Rose scent, as I love anything rose.  Gardenia is also one of my favorite scents (and one of my favorite flowers!).  The scent is a little powdery for me, but so I don't see myself using it as much as the rose one.

Lily Lolo *New* Vegan Mascara | $20

This is the product I was most excited to try.  My eyes are very sensitive, so I would like to try more natural mascaras.  This one is a wet formula, and I think it will be perfect for me when it dries out a little.  It's very dark (love it!) and I don't have to fuss with it for my lashes to look good.  I think this is going to be a keeper!

Overall, I am happy with my first Petit Vour box.  I look forward to my next one.  I do hope to get more makeup items in my next box.  My favorite product in this box is the mascara.  It's been my mascara of choice every day, and I might check out some more products from the Lily Lolo brand.

Do you get Petit Vour?
