Every time I get my Petit Vour box in the mail, I get so excited to share it with you all! Discovering new cruelty free and natural brands is so much fun, and my goal is to build up a ton of reviews to help other people navigate the world of cruelty free and natural skincare and beauty. It can be daunting to switch over your entire beauty routine, but I feel pretty confident about it now! In a few months, it will be a year since I decided to go cruelty free and I couldn’t be happier about it.
This month’s Petit Vour box was so timely with a gorgeous lip tint, a hydrating moisturizer, and a few other products that are perfect for this time of year. If you’ve never heard of Petit Vour, it is a natural, organic, cruelty free beauty subscription box. For $18 a month, you can be sent 4-5 deluxe samples of products. Most months, I get one full size product in my box. Last month, I got two! Every month, the value of samples is more than $18. This month, the box is worth $54. Let’s get into this month’s box!
True Moringa Lip Whip in ‘Truth’, $16
This is the full size product for this month. This is so pretty and, best of all, it’s naturally-colored. Don’t be deceived by the full-on color, because this goes on very sheer. In fact, I took a picture after applying it but I obviously haven’t included it. It’s so sheer, I couldn’t see any of the color on my lips. This lip balm is enriched with moringa oil, which is perfect for dry or cracked lips. The hydration is perfect for this time of year and even though the color doesn’t show up on my lips, I know I’ll be reaching for this. It feels so good on the lips!
Ursa Major Golden Hour Recovery Cream, $6, full size $48
This is another product that is perfect for winter. It’s an extremely hydrating face moisturizer. Even though it’s moisturizing, it does dry down fast. I love that, because waiting for a moisturizer to absorb can kind of ruin a skincare routine, especially in the morning. I hope I’m not the only one who likes to go through my routine as quickly as possible! I’ve been using this Golden Hour Recovery Cream at night, and it has been a life saver. My skin feels and looks so hydrated in the morning!
Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Ultra-Natural Mascara, $10, full size $22
Natural mascaras are not my forte. I really haven’t found any that work for me, aside from the Pacifica range. I don’t know if it’s my combination/oily skin, sensitive eyes, or my allergies, but natural mascaras rarely last on me unless they’re waterproof. I used this Juice Beauty mascara for one day and had to toss it out. The moment any moisture touches my eye or lashes, it leaked down my face. It was so bad. I hate this, because I truly love Juice Beauty skincare!
If you don’t need a waterproof mascara and want a pretty, natural option, this one is great. The application, wand, and volumizing properties were really great. This simply doesn’t last on me. On a positive note, it’s very easy to remove at the end of the day.
Province Apothecary Full Brow Serum, $16, full size $36
Full brows have never been a problem for me. In fact, I’ve been plucking my own eyebrows since 8th grade. Full brows are a blessing, but in 8th grade they feel like a curse. I’ve never over plucked and, instead, simply shape them up so they don’t look like caterpillars kissing. 😉 This serum is supposed to encourage hair growth. It contains castor oil, which is supposed to help your hair grow Morning and night, you massage a couple drops into dampened eyebrows for 10-20 seconds. You then wait 5-10 minutes before continuing with your beauty routine. I’m not sure if I will use this, as my brows are pretty full. However, I have a couple sparse areas and it would be interesting to find out of this helps. I will keep you posted!
Odacité Synergie Immediate Skin Perfecting Beauty Masque, $6, full size $59
You all know how much I love a face mask. I’ll trying out this one tonight on my Instastories, so keep an eye out for that! This treatment has four benefits: detoxification of pores, brightening and evening of skin tone, peeling of dead cells, and firming of skin. It’s actually a powder that you mix with water to create the mask. You apply a layer all over your face, avoiding the eye area, let it dry for 15 minutes and then rinse it off. I love powder masks, because you can customize how thin or thick you want the mask. They also last longer than conventional liquid or clay masks, because you’re not dipping your finger into the product.
Of course, I have to share the cover of the information pamphlet. The art is created by A Thing Created, and it’s gorgeous! I love saving these pictures.
