Petit Vour Un-Boxing | November 2019

Welcome back!

Petit Vour is $18 a month, and features cruelty free and vegan beauty products. These products are usually sample and deluxe sample sizes. Though there is sometimes a full sized item.

Juice Beauty Green Apple Peal Sensitive Exfoliating Mask Deluxe sample $11

I really enjoy the Juice Beauty Skin Care Line. This mask is meant to reduce dark spots and discoloration, and leave a brighter complexion. That sounds like it will be really helpful for my dry, dull winter skin.

Leahlani Bless Beauty Balm $13 Deluxe sample size

I have never heard of this brand before. It’s always exciting to try new brands! This balm has rich butters combine with orange blossoms and blue Tandy oil to nurture the skin and reduce inflammation. This product smells amazing. I am interested to see if it may some how help the breaks outs I have been having. If that can be considered inflammation.

Lavido Mandarin Aromatic Body Lotion $5

This lotion is scented with mandarin, orange and bergamot. It smells fantastic, very citrusy. The lotion sinks in quickly and makes the skin feel very soft. I will be tossing this into my bag!

Joséphine Cosmetics L’oeil Définite- The Eye Define $26

This is an exciting makeup product to get! This liner is meant to be richly pigmented and waterproof. It also contains grapefruit seed extract to allow for a smooth application.

The pigmentation is great, and the felt tip glided very easily for the swatch. I am excited to actually use it on my eyes.

That was it for my box this month. I am pretty happy with the selection and think I will get use out of all of the products.

This highlighter stick is made of capaçu butter to create a beautiful and blend able glow with an iridescent finish.

I am usually not one for stock highlights, it the roses glow to this one is really pretty. I could even see it as a beautiful lid and inner corner shade as well. I am going to have to test it out in all three ways.

This lip balm is lemon scented, has a reef safe SPF, and is recommended by the Cancer foundation as an effective lip protectant.

Jane Iredale is a brand that I really enjoy, so I was happy to receive this item as our makeup product this month.

I love products like this for quick and easy makeup days, or days where I go with out. Personally, I would not pay $17 for a lip balm, but I am glad to have it! Makes me feel fancy.

The Seaweed Bath Co. Firming Detox Body Cream $4 deluxe sample size

I am still not positive as to what a firming Cream is for. However, it is rosemary and mint scented, which is a lovely combination. I am just going to use this as a body lotion and hope that I am not doing something wrong.

Petit Vour Unboxing | August 2019

Hello everyone!

Tonight, we have an unboxing that I have not done in a while, the Petit Vour clean, vegan, and cruelty free beauty box!

After reading some other PV unboxings, I realized how much I missed this box. I just had to resubscribe!

What was in my first box in over a year?

Harvest Natural Beauty Lengthening Mascara $18

This mascara is meant to be ideal for sensitive eyes. It also claims to be smudge proof and water resistant. My mascara always smudges under my lower lash line, I am forever on the search for the perfect smudge proof mascara.

Honua Hawaiian Skincare Pa’kai Cleansing Cream $12

Made with Hawaiian salt, hibiscus, and seaweed. This cleansing cream is meant to cleanse, repair and renew for soft hydrated skin.

Those claims sound great to me, and I like the simple ingredients.

Derma E Essential Radiance Toner $2.50

This is an alcohol free, exfoliating toner with glycolic acid.

I really enjoy Derma E skincare. I have heard great things about the Radiance toner and I am excited to try it for myself.

Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Serum $15

This serum contains, willow bark, salicylic acid, and organic fruit acids.

My pores have been pretty congested lately, so I have been getting some break outs. I will be testing this product out ASAP!

Petit Histoire Envie Desoir $5

This last product in the box this month is a fragrance sample.

This is a 100% natural fragrance of “glistening violet and rose dancing in soft rain.”

The fragrance is very floral, yet fresh at the same time. I actually really enjoy it.

Overall thoughts?

I am very happy with my first box back. I will get use out of every item! I love being confident that all of the products are cruelty free, vegan, and clean beauty! The products are also samples of some pretty pricey items in each box. It makes it all the more fun to try!

What products in this box would you like to see more about?

2017 Favorites | CRUELTY FREE Makeup, Beauty, Personal Care

2017 is over. This year was…rough. But, 2018 is going to bring better and brighter days!

Here are my favorite products from this year. They may not have come out in 2017, but 2017 was when they impacted me!

We have quite a bit to go through, so let’s get going!

Ulta Beauty Setting Spray

This setting Spray is sold at Ulta and Ulta.com, it retails for $10. There are a couple of different options, but the Dewy and Illuminating ones are my favorite. I find them to be comparable to higher end settings sprays, and MUCH less costly.

Wet N’ Wild Photo Focus Foundation

My favorite foundation of the year is also the least expensive one I have tried! I find it at my local drugstores, and recently it has been on sale for only $2.50. It is easily buildable, has awesome coverage, and blends out fantastic with a brush or a sponge!

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

The Beauty community has been crazy over this concealer. I haven’t had it in my collection all that long, but the short time I have had it I have fallen in love with it. It is creamy, easy to blend, and has extreme coverage. The Tarte Shape Tape Concealer retails for $27. And is worth every penny!

Ulta Beauty Brow Tint “Medium”

Ulta’s Brow Tint is a nice dupe for the Benefit Gimmie Brow, and is something that I have come to not be able to complete a Look with out. It really just gives my brows that perfect touch to make them look fluffy, yet groomed. Retails for $10

Tarte Tarteist Mascara “Black”

I love how full and Black this Mascara makes my lashes look. It gives my lashes length and volume. It’s like having falsies on, but with out all the work! The Tarteist Mascara retails for $23, the travel size retails for $12.

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer

I get this bronzer in the lightest shade and it is perfect for my fair skin. This bronzer is easily blendable and I find that it can be used to contour as well, sense it isn’t too warm. The Butter Bronzer retails for $14.99

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks

The everlasting Liquid Lip Formula is by far 100% my favorite. I am slowly building up my collection, and I want EVERY SINGLE SHADE. Pigmented, a ton of different shades, applies fantastic, I literally can only think of good things to say! The Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks retail for $20.

Violet Voss Holy Grail Eyeshadow Palette

I just recently made a post about this Palette. I am in love with it. The formula is great, the shades are all consistently fantastic, and the looks you can do with this Palette are endless. Trying this Palette made me want to purchase ever Violet Voss eyeshadow palette. The Violet Voss Holy Grail Palette retails for $45.

French Girl Organics Cuticle and Nail Oil

Nail care is important. The French Girl Organics Cuticle Oil is the most effective Cuticle Oil I have tried. It retails for $20, but one roller ball of it will last you ages!

Yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Paper Mask

Sheet masks are awesome, but if you want one that you will see actual improvement with this Mask is the way to go. I have acne prone skin, and this is the mask I use when I have a bad break out. I always have them in stock. For $2.50 this mask is a life saver!

100% Pure Coffee Bean Eye Cream

Everyday I put this on my under eyes before I do my makeup. On the days I forget to, I notice the dark circle and bags under my eyes much more. This may just be a placebo effect, but I feel more awake and look more awake when I use this eye cream. It retails for $26 on petitvour.com

Luster White Power White Toothpaste *

I drink wine, coffee, and tea pretty frequently. So, the stains on my teeth were pretty intense. Notice I said were. I wish I would have thought to take before and after pictures of my teeth, because the difference is awesome. My mother even pointed out how much whiter my teeth are! I don’t really see myself using a different toothpaste now that I have tried Luster White. I have seen it in my local Walmart, but it retails for $6.99, Here.

Doctor Plotka Mouth Watchers Toothbrushes *

The bristles are extremely soft. So soft infact, that it didn’t cause any discomfort when i brushed my teeth after my oral surgery! The bristles are also arranged and cut so they will floss your teeth as you brush. Now, you should still always floss, the extra help is just nice! I find that the Dr. Plokta toothbrushes make my teeth, and mouth over all, feel extremely clean. These brushes paired with the Luster White tooth paste are life changing! You can get a year supply of the adult tooth brushes, one arrives in the mail every 3 months, for $20.99 Right here.

That’s my 2017 Favorites!!! Not many things really changed the game for me in 2017 but the things that did, are things I don’t think I can do with out!

What did you fall in love with in 2017?

Thank you so much for reading💜

*products were sent to me for review, but all opinions are honest and my own.

Juara Java Plum & Avocado Nourishing Mask | Sample Series 

*Can only attest to results from the sample size use.* 

I found this in my little box of sample products. I can’t recall where it came from (99% positive it was a Petit Vour Box), but it sparked my interest! Juara is a brand I enjoy, and I’m a face mask junkie.

Claims:

“Leaves skin soft, plump and radiant

Immediately relieves dry, stressed skin

Helps reduce the appearance of dehydration lines

May also be left on as an overnight moisture treatment.”

Ingredients:

“100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Water/Aqua, Cocoglycerides*, Shea (Butyrospermum parkii) Butter, Dicaprylyl Carbonate*, Stearyl Alcohol*, Behenyl Alcohol*, Glyceryl Stearate*, Glycerin, Avocado (Persea gratissima) Oil, Lecithin*, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate*, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Sterols*, Buriti (Mauritia flexuosa) Fruit Oil, Java Plum (Spondias mombin) Pulp Extract, Mango (Mangifera indica) Pulp Extract, Banana (Musa sapientum) Pulp Extract, Plum (Prunus domestica) Fruit Extract, Neem (Melia Azadirachta) Leaf Extract, Neem (Melia Azadirachta) Flower Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Tocopherol, Citric Acid, Xanthan Gum*, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin | *Certified Organic Ingredient”

My Experience:


I found that the mask was extremely creamy, had no scent, and was very easy to use. I loved that I just put in a thin layer of it before bed while winding down and it just seeps in! 

The next morning my skin was always extremely soft and best of all stayed hydrated for a few days! If you have dry skin, this could be face changing. I think this mask would be perfect for the cold, skin moisture sucking weather that will be coming up soon. 

At first I though the $38 retail value was too much. But, this mask is essentially perfect for my dry dull skin. You can get it, HERE, on the Petit Vour site, where you earn point for your purchase, so it’s almost like it’s not $38! 

🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁 I need it. I will be purchasing this five leaf mask. 

I hope you enjoyed this little review! Thank you so much for stopping by!! I have some big things coming up for y’all! 

What is your favorite face mask?? Comment below!

Petit Vour | June 2017

*This box Retails for $15 a month. It contains luxury, cruelty free, vegan, and clean beauty product samples*


Mai Couture Vitamin C and E Skin Care Blotting Sheets (Retails for $10)

I have used regular blotting sheets from Mai Coture and they were nice. I am sure these will work just as well. 

It is pretty neat that they are infused with SkinCare benefits. 

Nui Body Coconut Oil Makeup Remover wipes $4 (Retail $15 full size)

Can’t go wrong with natural makeup remover. This came with two pads to try it out.

“Pure coconut oil and organic essential oils will leave your skin flawless and glowing. This relaxing blend of coconut oil, geranium and lavender essential oils slows premature aging while soothing the mind”

Modern Minerals Lip Creme Tint “Fuscia” (Retails $20)


This is a really pretty shade for summer. The formula is light weight and easy to apply, making it great for hot weather! The formula is infused with lotus wei flower essence and gem stone energy. 

My Daughter Fragrances Bloom 23 $2.50 (Retails $85, full size)

I actually really enjoy these little perfume samples. I may actually consider spending the $85 for the full size, I am in love with the scent. It is extremely floral. 

It is said to have linen, rich vanilla, and soft ylang ylang. It is it is meant to create a light, clean, and clear smell. I definitely agree.

I really enjoyed this months Box! Well worth the $15.

What did you think of the products in this months Petit Vour box? Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed it!
