Petit Vour | April 2017

It is finally Petit Vour time! This is a cruelty free, vegan, and green Beauty Box that cost $15 per month. It usually has some pretty high priced product samples in it.

Marie Natie Lip Gloss “Tickled” $19

This gloss feels really nice, and it is a beautiful summer/spring shade.

“Coconut and jojoba oil moisturize and smooth surface of lips to maximize wearability.”

French Girl Organics Cuticle Oil $10

My nails and cuticles sucks. They are so crappy and dry. Any cuticle oil is okay by me.

“This luxurious blend of high potency extracts and essential oils with a citrus rose scent makes for a powerful treatment for healthier nails and cuticles.”

Suntegrity Skincare Makeup W/ SPF “Fair” $5

During hot weather I love tinted moisturizers, especially with SPF in it. I was really glad to see the shade was on that will actually suit my skin tone.

“Did you know that nearly every sun care product on the market contains toxic ingredients? Suntegrity is the answer to anyone who ever wondered if an effective, holistic sun care line exists.”

Nubian Heritage Patchouli & Buriti Body Lotion $3

I actually already own the soap that goes with this lotion, so I was excited to receive this, it smells fantastic.
That is it for this months box. I hope you enjoyed it, thank you for stopping by. Have you tried any of these products? Comment below!

Page Ashbury Facial Mositurizer FT. Jasmine and Neroli | Skincare Review


Long time no blog. Life has been, not at all hectic. But, just hard to explain. My thoughts on where I am at life have been complicated. To try to take my mind of it all for a few minuets, I decided to finally review this moisturizer that I got in my Vegan Cuts beauty box a few months back.

This sample lasted me ages!

Full-size cost, $25.

From the site:

“A rejuvenating moisturizer fortified with Aloe Vera and botanical extracts and essential oils of Jasmine and Neroli. Light and uplighting scent with a light texture; perfect for everyday wear. Non-comedogenic. Suitable for all skin-types. “


  • Deionized Water,

    Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice,

    Glyceryl Stearate,

    Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil,

    Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil,


    Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride,

    Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter),

    Stearic acid,


    Tocopherol (Vitamin E),

    Cetyl Alcohol,

    Phenoxyethanol and Caprylyl Glycol,

    Jasminum grandiflorum,

    Petitgrain bigarade (Petitgrain Essential Oil),

    Citrus aurantium amara (Neroli Essential Oil)

When you pan over the ingredients on the site they tell you exactly what it is!!

My thoughts and experience:

The scent is fantastic, not too energizing but it also doesn’t make me think of sleep. So it was perfect for day and night. The consistency wasn’t really thick or runny, it is the perfect middle ground. I was so sad to see this moisturizer go, I honestly loved it. I whole heartily believe that it is worth the $25, and plan to purchase it once I go through some of the other moisturizers that I currently have. I really need to do a skin care and sample purge.

A fantastic clean and vegan beauty product, that I think would work great for any skin type. I have very sensitive and dry skin, and it was amazing for me. However, it is not oily or greasy, so I also think this would be superb for other skin types as well.

Pick it up, here!

Thank you for stopping by and reading this little review. I know it wasn’t anything spectacular, I have a lot on my mind. Have you tried anything from this brand? What is your fave facial moisturizer? Comment below!

My FIRST Video!! | Candle, soap, etc.. Haul.


One of my new years resolutions was to stop being such a big baby and just do things that I want. This included making Youtube videos. I decided to make my first one about a company that is dear to me. It is not makeup related like what I will usually be doing. But, it would still mean the world to me if you would check it out, subscribe, and thumbs it up!

Watch it here!

Please tell me what you think and suggest future videos! Anyone else new to this, let’s learn and grow together!

Petit Vour Mystery Make-Up Box | Holiday 2016


During Black Friday, I only made two purchases, this was one of them. It is no longer available as a set, but the individual products are on Petit Vours’ site. The box retailed for $50.

*As of now, it is relisted under their holiday gifts section!!! It is the Make-up obsessed box, here. *

Sample Sizes:


Box Naturals wipes “Rosewater”: This is something I already love. I got it in a past PV box, and have since bought the pack of them. They are a life saver and can be used any where on the body. I always have one, at least, in my purse.  A box of 10 retails for $10.

Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigment Liquid Lip “Gwyneth”

I have this product in the shade “Blythe” and love it! I wish this wasn’t such a small sample, sense I paid $50 for the box, but I will still get use out of it. Full-Size $24.


Fior Minerals Ignite Illuminator “Sweets”

This is a sample size of a cream illuminator that gives a beautiful natural glow. It is a pink tone, so it doesn’t show up too stark on me. I think it is perfect for winter. It gives you a really ethereal glow. Full size retails for $24.

Full-Sized Products:

Lily Lolo Sculpt and Glow Contour Duo:

This is a duo I got in  a past PV box, after longing after it for a while. I am still in love with it ans use it constantly. The one in the pictures is actually mine, and not the brand new one. I am going to give the new one as part of a gift. I am not upset that this was in there, not everyone gets the monthly box, and I planned on buying this as a specific gift for a family member who wanted it anyway! Retails for $26.

*Swatched dry then wet*

Studio 78 eye shadow “03 Tea Time”

I have wanted to try thins brand for a while, but just haven’t gotten around to it. This eyeshadow can be applied we or dry, which I really like. It doesn’t feel like a regular baked shadow would. I appreciate that they have included a shade I will actually get a TON of use out of. It seems like a lot of make-up box type things include pretty outlandish shades. It retails for $23.

Red Apple Lip Stick lipstick “Audrey”

The shade that you got in the box was the only thing you got to pick. I have heard a ton of good things about this shade, so I had to go with it. FYI, it is so worth the hype! It is the perfect your lips but better color. The formula is amazing, and it wears way longer than I expected it to. It retails for $23.

I hope you enjoyed the un-boxing! Be on the look out for an up coming post, including a look using only these products! Have you tried any of these things before? What is your favorite Red Apple Lip Stick lipstick shade? Comment below! You can also find me on Instagram and Snapchat as manda_janette

*Vegan Cuts Product Review* Routine Deodorant


My second Vegan Cuts product review! I have been wanting to try a natural deodorant, and I am very glad that I have finally gotten to. The deodorant is made out of vegan clay and other natural ingredients,  I miss placed the information card so I can not tell you what exactly they are for the one that I got. I got the Patchouli and vanilla scent- a scent that I am not obsessed with!

Aesthetics/ sample itself:

This little sample pod is so cute, look at the little green bird! After I finish it up I am going to wash out the container and use it to put foil packets in when I am trying them out! As small as this sample looks it is going a long way, I have used it almost every day sense I have gotten it and I thankfully still have some left. As I said before it smells amazing to me. If you are put off by grainy creams than you may not like this, the texture did take a bit of getting used to.

My thoughts:

I need to buy this! I never want another deodorant. This one works so well and lasts all day long, which surprised me because I haven’t heard the best things about natural deodorants. I will repurchase it IF I can find this same scent! You can get this product here, in various size (prices) and scents!

What is your favorite natural deodorant? Think you can help me find this scent in this product and others?

*Birch Box Sample Review* Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioner


I got a sample of this product, pictured is the full size, in my April 2016 Birch Box. When I received this product I was pretty happy that I did, and I am still happy that I did!

Birch Box Break Down

“Teleport your tresses out of the Sahara with this ultrahydrating deep conditioning mask fortified with essential oils. A lifesaver for those suffering from dry, damaged, or lifeless hair, often the result of color treatments, heat tools, or climate changes, this blend of transformative hair nutrients will restore and replenish hair to a glossier, healthier state.”

How- To- Use

“Avocado, almond, and argan oils work together to nourish, repair, hydrate, and add shine. Strengthening keratin protein, conditioning rosehip oil, soothing aloe, and essential vitamins B5, D, A, E, and biotin help increase hair elasticity and moisture to prevent breakage. This formula is made without parabens, silicones, or phthalates.”

The Sample in General:

The sample I received was pretty good size and I got a few uses out of it. I actually still have a use or two left in it, so that is fantastic! The Full size is $26, here.

Smell, Texture, Etc:

This is possibly the best smelling hair product I have ever used. The amazing smell also lingers in my hair which is fantastic! This is a creamy white conditioner, just like any other. I also really like how simple the packaging is. It is really sleek and aesthetically pleasing and I am super into that lately. I also really like how natural this product is.

Would I Buy?

Oh yeah. I did just order a lot of natural and cruelty free body, hair, and skin care products. If for some reason I do not like the deep conditioner I purchased, I will definitely purchase this!

Have you tried this? What is your favorite deep conditioner?
