Petit Vour Box | March 2020

Today, we have a cruelty free, clean, and vegan monthly subscription box unboxing. Petit Vour!

Each month you get four beauty products, deluxe sample sizes and at least one full size. This box is skin care heavy, with usually only one makeup item.

We all know unboxing posts can get long, so let’s jump in.

EIR NYC Active Face Wash $20

This foaming cleanser is meant to exfoliate, being scaring to a minimum, and stop break outs. It sounds like everything I need in one bottle!

Alima Pure Natural Definition Eye Pencil $18

Alima Pure is a brand with some wonderful products, especially their setting powders.

This is a traditional eye pencil, but it is jet black and creamy as can be. I am going to go through this girl quickly.

Inkling Scent Roll on Perfume “Sultry” $15

This scent holds notes of sandalwood, amber, lotus flower, orchid, and Bulgarian rose, and vanilla.

My first thought when I smelled the scent was floral, yet a bit masculine. I have to be honest.. I think this is my new favorite scent!

Pacific Coconut Water Micellar Cleansing Tonic $5

This is a product I already know and lovey. This is a great size for travel- not that I will be getting to do any of that anytime soon.

I am very pleased with this months box! I discovered to amazing items, got one I already love, and another I am hoping will answer my facial prayers.

What did you think of this months box?

Ipsy Ultimate | March 2020

Guess who is unboxing another box of beauty products? Me! It’s me.

Ipsy Ultimate is $50 a month. You get 8 full sized, and 4 deluxe sample sized beauty products.

This is going to be a long one, so let’s jump in!

111 Skin Celestial Black Diamond Eye Mask and Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask

I was just looking for a new eye mask to try, so this worked out well. As far as the rose gold mask goes, I have tried this one. It didn’t do much for my skin, so I am going to pass it along to a friend or my mom.

Hey Honey Show Your Glow Colloidal Gold and Honey Beauty Mask

I’ve said it a hundred times, but I am always up to try a new mask. I actually planned on using a mask tonight, so I am going to give this little guy a try!

Go To Face Hero Facial Oil

This oil is supposed to be your all in one skin hero and best friend. It is made with super oils and antioxidants to hydrate, calm and revive skin.

Hempz Sweet Pineapple and Honey Melon Body Moisturizer

I love this brand! Their body lotions are all fantastic. This one smells very sweet and will be perfect for the spring and summer months.

Library of Flowers Honey Comb Hans Cream

I am not usually one for hand creams, but this one just smells so great. It left my hands feeling extremely soft. And the packaging! Look how cute it is!

Pixi Glow Mist

Do I have to say much about this product? I love it to death. I have never met someone who doesn’t. Super excited to see such a well loved item in my box.

Moon By Kendall Jenner Teeth Whitening Pen

This is neat! I have seen this line and Ulta and contemplated trying it. A teeth whitening pen is such a cool product to get in a box like this, and I can’t wait to try it.

Illamasqua Hydra Veil

Yay!! I have a sample of this product and love it as a primer. I am excited to have my hands on the full size. It came at the perfect time too, I am scraping the last bits out of my sample.

Complex Culture Angled Foundation

I have another brush from this brand, and it is spectacular. I am in need of a holy grail foundation brush, this one may end up being it. Who knows! It’s soft and very well made.

Mannakadar Blush Bali Babe

Great brand! I am excited to see more from them in Ipsy. This blush is a beautiful shade, very soft and blend-able. Unfortunately, the packaging broke at the hinges as soon as I opened it. That’s okay though, it can go into a Z palette.

SmashBox Gloss Angeles in Michelda

Before searching it, I didn’t think this gloss would be for me. Once I swatched it though? I think this gloss will add a beautiful and effortless wash of color to the lips.

Chella La Vie Neutral Palette

First off, I really thought Chella only made brow products. You learn something new every day.

This is the perfect neutral quad! The mattes are pigmented and buttery, the Metallica are stunning. I cannot wait to dig into it!

Benefit Brow Contour Pro in Blonde

This is a cool product to get, it’s interesting and gives me a bit of a nostalgic feel.

However, this is a benefit product, and I know they are not Cruelty free, so I will be giving this to a friend who I know will love the heck out of it.

Over all, I am really happy with this mo this box! I got some cool things, and somethings I already know I love.

What was in your Ipsy this month?

Boxy Luxe |March 2020

I’m sure most of you are only around for the unboxing posts- so here’s a little Tuesday treat!

I bring you the March BoxyLuxe! This is a quarterly box, which will cost you $50 a quarter. It is meant to be filled 8 full-sized beauty products.

This months theme is pretty edgy. Let’s see what BC thinks is edgy.

Sutra Beauty Mini-Ceramic Curling Iron $50

This is a really cool tool to get. However, I literally NEVER curl my hair. I have one curling wand; I don’t really need another. But! I know my sister in law will love this!

Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum + CoCo Cabana Cream Duo $15

Unpopular opinion coming. I don’t like the way either of the scents of these creams smell. Let’s hope some one else I know does.

BoxyCharm Hello, Charmer Palette $39

First and foremost, BoxyCharm throwing in an in house branded product doesn’t really scream luxury or high end to me. BUT, the quality could prove me wrong.

But, maybe not.

I searched a few select shades. There are no actual mattes in this palette, my matte shades appear to have shimmer bits. The pigmentation is nice, and the formula is smooth. Those metallics though, Beautiful.

I will definitely be doing a look with this palette in the future to come to a final conclusion.

PMD Beauty Smart Facial Cleansing Device $99

This is exciting! You have the rubber bristle end for cleansing, and the other side is for applying serums. I am so excited to start using this.

NARS Power Matte Lip Pigment “Low Rider ” $25

I will be sweet and simple with this product. NARS is definitely not cruelty free, and the shade just isn’t for me. I will be passing this on.

Becca Skin Love Glow Glaze Stick $28

This stick highlight is much more sheer than the other ones I have, and I love it! Perfect for those light makeup days that will be coming with the hottest weather.

Spongelle Body Wash Infused Buffer “Freesia Pear” $16

The scent of this buffer is amazing! I am throwing it into my shower right after I finish writing this. It’s so floral. I cannot wait to see how the buffer itself makes my skin feel.

Appeal Cosmetics Gel Liner “Fancy” $21

This liner is smooth! The color payoff is great with one swipe. The shade will match my most worn lipsticks, so I know I will get use out of it.

That is it for my Boxy Luxe! Over all, I’m not super impressed this month. I always get so excited to get the Luxe box. The house brand palette, a small curling wand, a Becca product that I’ve literally never heard of. I have come to expect more from them.

What was in your box this month? Were you impressed? Comment below!

Petit Vour Un-Boxing | February 2020

It’s time to un-box our favorite Cruelty Free and Vegan subscription box! Petit Vour.

Petit Vour is $15 a month US. You can also review the products on their website to earn points to put towards future purchases. Which is amazing, they have a great online store.

Let’s dive in to the box!

Little Barn Apothecary Honeysuckle and Grapefruit Body Oil $14

Little Barn Apothecary is a fantastic brand, I am always happy to receive products from them. They have a facial oil that I love for makeup removal.

They smell is beautiful, like and floral. It’s like spring time in a bottle!

Speak Deodorant Cream $12

I have very little experience with natural deodorants, much less with cream deodorants.

I am excited to give it a try and see how affective it is, and how my body reacts to it.

Blissoma Refine Clay Renewal Treatment Mask $10

This mask is meant to draw out impurities, refine skin texture, improve hydration, and prevent and treat breakouts. It seems to be exactly what I need at the moment!

Juice Beauty Antioxidant Serum $6

I have enjoyed a few juice beauty products, so I am always glad to have the chance to try another. This serum is meant to give your skin a healthy dose of resveratrol and hyaluronic acid. Great for the winter weather.

BONUS ITEM! K. Voss Bronzing Potion

I don’t think this item was meant to be in my box, as it is not listed on my info card. I am always happy to receive an extra product!

I think this bronzing potion will be perfect for the up coming warmed months. I have never used a product like this, so I am filled with anticipation to try something new!

That is it for my box! For $15 I got some amazing products!

What was your favorite product in the box? What are you interested in hearing more about?

BoxyCharm Un-Boxing | February 2020

We are going to make our post today short and sweet!

Let’s see what the BoxyCharm fairy brought me for $25 a month.

Kate Summerville KX Active Concentrates Bio-Mimicking Peptides Serum $98

First off, holy cow on that price!

This serum is meant to live up and tighten dull and sagging skin in just a week.

Unfortunately, I am over loaded with serums, but I think my mom or step mom would love this!

Luxie Beauty Complete Sponge Set $40

If you have read my blog at all, then you would know I love Luxie brushes. I am very excited to try their sponges. There is one for baking, contour, and detail work.

They feel a little hard dry, but we will see how they actually perform.

Amika Supernova Moisture + Shine Cream $25

This stuff smells amazing.

I use the heck out of leave in conditioner. Really happy about this one.

Moda Five Piece Brush Set $27.95

Yay! A brush set!

It contains a detail brush, a smudger brush, a line brush, a shading brush, and a crease brush.

The bristles feel really soft, hopefully they apply shade as great and they feel.

PÜR 4 in 1 Correcting Primer $17

This is our last product. So no color cosmetics this month.

This primer is meant to soothe and smooth the skin. Made with aloe, coconut water, caffeine, and probiotics.

Sounds like it’ll feel great!

That is if for this months box! I like it! A little disappointed by the lack of actually makeup, but the products I got are still really nice.

What was in your Boxy?

Ipsy February 2020 | Feel The Love

I am sure as soon as you got a post notification from me, you assumed it was an unboxing. Well, congratulations! You were right!

Today, we have Ipsy Ultimate! It retails for around $50 a month and you get eight full sized items and 4 sample sizes. I do want to point out, I never use everything I get- but the things I don’t use I usually pass on to my little sister, and I just love being able to give her makeup!

Another note, ipsy’s card is, again useless. It contains no information, like AT ALL. So forgive me if I am a little off on a few things. My app has also been having issues. I’m not sure what their problem is lately, but they need to step it up.

The Bag

This months bag is velvety, and a pretty shade of pink. It is the perfect size for a night away from home. It seems to be nicely made as usual. I have to say, the bags I have been getting in the ultimate box have been very impressive!

Callyssee Better Bean Clean Coffee Facial Cleanser

Our first product is one of the sample sizes. I have tired face masks from this company before and enjoyed it. Hopefully I like this cleanser just as much.

Feel Harmony Rose Petal Facial Mask

This mask itself is definitely interesting looking. Have you seen the Fresh, I believe, Rose toner? It looks just like that, rose petal pieces and all, just in a jelly format. I am excited to give it a try. Nothing has been helping my skin lately, maybe this new mask will.

Pacifica Rose Water Makeup Removing Wipes

I have tried these wipes before and really enjoyed them. I am glad that I now have a little packed that I can use for travel.

Shainab Brush set

These brushes seem very nice. They feel nicely put together and the bristles them selves are very soft. I think they are going to make eyeshadow application a dream.

Grace and Stella Rose Roller

I have never understood the hype around these, but I am willing to try anything. If anything it’ll look pretty sitting on my vanity.

Catherine Malandrino Dream Perfume

Since the card contains no useful information, I have no idea what the actual notes are of this fragrance. I can tell you that it smells rather floral. I surprisingly really enjoy, and I’m sure I will be using it a ton.

Douccee Punk Volumizer Mascara

This is a mascara that I have always been a little interested in after seeing so many other people get it in their subscription boxes. I am excited to be able to try it for myself.

TrΓ¨stique All Over Starlighter “Ultra Violet”

This highlighter stick is a powder, which is nice. I think the purple undertone is pretty, but I have so many highlighters like it. This might be one product that I decide to pass along.

Fully Fire Matte Manipulation Creamy Matte Lipstick “Sunset BLVD”

This formula feels very hydrating. And the shade is really pretty. It doesn’t wear too long- as expected. I might give this lipstick a few more tries before I decide if I want to pass it on or not.

Nature’s Cartel 3 piece Cream Shadows “Champagne Scandal” “90’s Nude” “Tan Line from Tahiti”

Cream shadows aren’t for me, but I do like the shades. They would make great one a done shadows. I may actually give these babies a try!

Violet Voss Berry Burst Fun Sized Eyeshadow Palette

If you have been follow my blog for a while, you would know that I LOVE the VV shadow formula. They are so easy to work with and the looks always come out beautiful.

This color story is perfect for Valentine’s Day! Even though I won’t be celebrating, I can still do my makeup for myself and whatever food I order.

That is it for my Feb 2020 Ipsy Ultimate! Over all I thought it was a great box, I just wish they would include more information!

What are yours thoughts? What was your favorite that you got in your Ipsy?

Petit Vour Box | January 2020

We are now back to our regularly scheduled unboxings!

Today I bring you the contents of my January 2020 Petit Vour box. Petit Vour delivers 4 cruelty free, vegan, and green beauty products monthly for, I believe around $15, maybe $19.

Fit Glow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara $38

This is my first time trying a product from fit glow, and I’m pretty excited. I have heard some pretty good things about the Good Lash + Mascara.

“A multitasking mascara that amplifies lash length and volume! Plant protein and botanical extracts nourish lashes and promote growth, helping lash grow thicker, denser and fuller.”

… that sounds exactly like what I need!

MOA The Green Fairy Hand & Lip Balm $18

It’s winter here. The weather is freezing ( sometimes). There is currently a pretty big snow storm raging out side my window. At this point, my horribly chapped lips cannot get enough lip balm. I am hoping this one has a bit more of an affect than the ones I have been using.

“This non greasy formula includes castor oil, Shea and cocoa butter. And candelilla wax to moisturize and nourish skin, leaving it silky smooth with a hint of peppermint.”

Aether Beauty Single Shadow “Amethyst” $16

I have really been wanting to try the aether beauty shadow formula. I want the palettes, but they are a bit pricy. This is a great chance to treat out the formula.

“Enhance your natural beauty with the power of crystals. Pigments of topaz, amethyst, and other crystal illuminate the eyes, whole coconut oil and shea butter create a buttery texture for one swipe application.”

Andalou Naturals Apricot Probiotic Cleansing Milk $3

I am always happy to try a new cleaners, especially when I’m not too worried about it irritating my skin.

“Vegan Probiotics gently remove makeup and impurities, rinsing away dull surface cells and balancing skin. Apricot and borage oil rejuvenate dehydrated skin for a fresh, glowy complexion.”

I have to say, I think this is the best PV box I have ever gotten!

What is your favorite green beauty brand? What products do I need to try?
