Every month, I try so hard to get my Petit Vour post posted before the end of the month. Since it arrives so close to the end of the month, sometimes it’s a bit of a struggle. Being that last week was the ferst week of school, this post definitely wasn’t priority! I thought it would be still be helpful for me to share what I got, especially because the full size product is pretty amazing.
Hands down, Petit Vour has been my favorite beauty subscription box. The value they provide is so much more than $18, which is how much the box costs every month. I’ve been exposed to so many brands I never would’ve tried. Alternatively, I’ve also discovered products that aren’t worth my money, which is just as valuable as knowing what to purchase.
I have quite a lot of highlighter, and most of them are powder. It’s nice to try a different texture every once in a while. This Kani highlighter is very, very pretty. The texture blends so well with my skin that it looks very natural. It gives my skin a pretty glow. The color is not great for me, because it’s a little too warm. It’s definitely more on the golden side. That being said, this would work very well for anyone who likes a golden highlight. It simply doesn’t look amazing on me, but the texture and glow is very pretty.
I was very excited to see another Mai Couture product in the box. Previously, I have tried their paper highlighter and it was very pretty. These are blotting papers that remove dirt buildup, unwanted oil, shine and perspiration from your skin without disturbing your makeup. It claims to also draw out pollutants for a more clear, matte complexion. I have no way of knowing if it actually removes pollutants, but it does make my skin look more matte. Unfortunately, it did disturb my makeup. I blotted a little bit later in the day, so maybe I simply let my skin get more oily thus the makeup was dissolved anyway. These are very effective, and I will try and remember to use them earlier on in the day.
There aren’t many products that I try through boxes like Petit Vour that make me want to purchase them straight away, but this is one of them! I love clay masks but, unfortunately, they do dry out my skin sometimes. This Rosehip & Clay Facial masks has claims that it will remove toxins without over-drying the skin. I was skeptical, but it really does work. My skin felt and looked amazing after using it. My skin wasn’t dried out in the least, and it looks healthy and hydrated. My only complaint is that the directions tell you to combine half the package (it comes in powder form) with water to create the mask, and I found that I did not need that much. I wasted quite a bit of product using that measurement, so next time I will use considerable less powder.
Goldfaden MD Bright Eyes, $18 sample, $55 full size
This is another brand I was excited to see in my box this month. Goldfaden MD was new to me a few months ago, when I tried a night cream. I was impressed with the quality, texture, and how it made my skin feel. This Bright Eyes eye cream is a doctor-approved, brightening eye cream that reduces the appearance of under eye darkness, puffiness, and fine lines. The texture is very thick, and you need only a little bit for each application. I love products that go along way, especially when they are pricier. This will be my next eye cream purchase!
