Petit Vour Beauty Box | August 2020

Petit Vour Beauty Box is $15 a month. It contains 4-5 cruelty free, vegan, and usually clean beauty products.

Evio Cleansing Wipes $14

These wipes are biodegradable and made of hemp. They can remove makeup, cleanse skin, and keep it hydrated. I can always use more wipes and these seem to be a great option!

Josh Rosebrook Tinted Nutrient Day Cream x2 $2.50

Josh Rosebrook is a really nice, rather expensive brand. It will be neat to try one of their products. I am not sure what the tint is, as it doesn’t have a shade on the packets. This cream can be used to prep skin before makeup, or be worn alone for a glowy smooth finish.

Andalou Naturals Citrus Sunflower Shower Gel $3

This is a product I already own, and have yet to try. I am probably going to throw one into my travel bag for the lake this weekend.

Ursa Major Sublime Sage Spray Deodorant $18

I have never tried a spray deodorant, so this will be interesting. It is supposed to be instantly refreshing. And neutralizes odor causing bacteria; using plants, minerals, and enzymes.

Sahajan Brightening Mask $15

I could really use this right now. My skin looks dull and horrible. This mask has a blend of anti-inflammatory and brightening tumeric extract, oils, and glycolic acid to give the skin a glow.

I am really excited for everything in this months box, and I can’t wait to give it all a try.

My box came to a total of $52.50. For only $15!

Petit Vour Beauty Box | July 2020

The Petit Vour Beauty Box retails for $18 a month. You receive 4 sample, sometimes full sized beauty items. All items are cruelty free, vegan, and non-toxic.

Mantra Mask CBD Collagen Mask $15

This mask promotes collagen regeneration to reduce inflammation and fine lines and wrinkles. I have tried masks from this brand before and did enjoy them.

Blissoma Photonic Facial Sunscreen and Mositurizer $17.50

This moisturizer skins into the skin quickly and provides 25 SPF to the skin. I used it as a primer today, and it works very well! My skin feels moisturized, not greasy, and I have that extra layer of SPF.

Kindred Beauty La Femme Body Oil $20

Fun fact about me, I am horrible at remembering to moisturize my body. I am trying to get better about it.

This body oil absorbs quickly and has a light rose scent. It soothes the skin, while leaving behind a very subtle shimmer.

Nude by Nature Natural Illusion Eyeshadow “Sunset” $20

This shadow is pigmented and very smooth. I have a feeling I am going to love this as a one and done shadow in the fall. I will make a future post look more in-depth into this shadow, maybe even more nude by nature products!

That is everything I got in my July Petit Vour Box. I am very happy with everything I got, and I’m excited to really get into testing it all.

My box came to a total of $72.50, for only $18! This box really does pay for itself!

Products I have been using on the daily | Summer 2020

This summer has been sweltering. So I set out to find a low effort routine, that handles well under heat. I think I found it for myself! And it is surprisingly full of powder products.

Base

After my skin care, I start by priming. I have been loving the Pür Cosmetics 4 in 1 correcting primer $33. It is moisturizing and sinks quickly into the skin. It has a nice light scent. It really helps to calm my skin down, and I do find it helps reduce redness.

My next step is concealing. I really love the Organic Skin Co. Hide and Seek Concealer in the shade Porcelain ($18 for the refill, magnetic pod). It doesn’t crease under the eyes and does a wonderful job at covering up blemishes. I find it blends in best using your fingers to really warm up the product.

I have been loving powder foundations specifically the Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation in China Doll $22. It gives a brightened and smooth look to the skin, and does a great job at covering up any remaining discoloration.

Colored Cosmetics

For bronzer I have been in love with the W3ll People Bio Baked Bronzer in Natural Tan $24.99. It gives a lovely sun kissed tan look to the skin. I also love packing it all over my lid and buffing it into my crease and under the eye, for a super easy, sultry eye look!

The highlighter I have been obsessed with is PYT Radiant Powder Highlighter in Backstage Pass $22. It gives a very luminous look to the skin. I also pop this under my brow bone and in the inner corner of my eyes, to complete that super easy eye look.

I have found my new all time favorite blush, and I can’t stop using it! The Lily Lolo Pressed Blush in Tickled Pink $20. This blush gives my cheeks a wind flushed look, while providing luminosity.

For the lips I have constantly been reaching for the Axiology Natural Lip Crayon in the shade Valour $26. For a lip crayon, it is rather long lasting. It is also not drying on the lips at all, even though it is matte. The crayon shape to the product makes reapplication through out the day a breeze!

Please ignore my red eye, I tried the Tarte Big Ego mascara, and I don’t think my left eye is okay with it.

Look at that highlighter!!

I hope you enjoyed reading about the products I am currently loving!

Petit Vour Plus Box

The Petit Vour Plus Box retails for $25 a month. You receive 5-7 full and sample sized cruelty free and vegan products. The products featured are supposed to be hits from past petit Vour (the original basic) boxes.

I do enjoy the regular Petit Vour box, so I wanted to test this one out. I did unsubscribe, because I wanted to try new things. Not repeat things. I have resubscribed to the original box though!

EIR NYC Active Face Wash $20

This is a face wash I have tried before and did enjoy. This face wash is made with African black soap. It is meant to minimize scaring and calm down breakouts. From experience I can tell you it definitely does it’s job.

Andalou Naturals Citrus Sunflower showergel $3 (deluxe sample)

I love citrus scents. This shower gel smells fantastic. It will be perfect for travel.

The Sea Weed Bath Co. Firming Body Cream $4 (Deluxe Sample)

This is another product I have tried before and liked for the most part. I didn’t notice it firming anything, but it felt nice! It has a nice minty scent.

Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Serum $15 (Deluxe Sample)

This is another product I have tried before and I love it so much. I did wonders for my skin! This product is the reason that my face finally started to clear up after many many years. I am so happy to have this back in my skincare rotation.

Blissoma Refine Clay Renewal Mask $10 (Deluxe Sample)

I do already own another sample of this mask, but I have yet to try it. It is supposed to draw out impurities, refine skin texture, improve hydration, and clear breakouts. It sounds very promising! And, it was made in St. Louis, which is where I live, so that makes it even better.

Osea Atmosphere Protection Cream $48

Another product here that I have already used and love! It’s a daily moisturizer that protects against pollution, but it also makes an awesome primer for makeup.

That is all the contents of my box. I am happy to have a lot of old favorites again, I just prefer trying new things in subscription boxes, so I am going to stick with the regular Petit Vour box. My box contained a total of exactly $100.

If you are just getting into clean beauty, I do think this would be a great way for you to try out a ton of fan favorite, fantastic products.

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.

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

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.
