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!

Treat yourself! | My Pamper Routine

Alright guys. Let’s talk relaxation, self-care, let’s talk my personal pampering routine! 

Life can get stressful to say the least, and it can really bring you down. To keep a positive out look, and to de-stress, it is very important to show your self some love.  So, kick back, relax, and keep reading to find out what I do to give myself some much needed CRUELTY FREE pampering💜.

Masking

I always start off by applying a mask of some sort. I change up the products I use all the time, sense I do receive quite a bit of skin/body care.


Lately, I have really been loving the Palmeto Derma Rejuvenating Antioxidant Mask. It retails on their website for $64. 

Like any mask, you want to start off with clean skin, and apply with freshly washed hands. I leave it on for the full 30 mins. During this time I watch some YouTube and maybe have a glass of wine in bed.

This mask has a light scent and really leaves my skin feeling renewed. I actually just wash it off in the shower! 

Shower Time

During my pamper nights, I usually try out sample size products I have gotten. Tonight, I will be using…


The Fortune Cookie Soap “Black Pearl” Exfoliating Body Wash I got this when I used to get the Fortune Cookie Soap Box, which I may renew. It has a pretty warm scent, very nice for fall in my opinion! 


Evolv h Ultra Shine Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner $26 for the full sizes.

I have heard some fantastic things about this duo. I got them in a past Petit Vour Box. I am excited to finally give these little guys a go. They smell amazing by the way! I will be doing a review post, so keep your peepers peeled for that!

I would also check out the site eSalon! They have a ton of different hair treatments and Customizable hair colors, you could really find a fun way to go all out on your hair during your pamper routine.


Apoterra Tulsi Rejuvenating Oil $7 for the travel size on petitvour.com

I am in love with this oil. When I use it in the shower after I wash my self I apply it all over my body then just stand in the nice warm water. It makes my skin baby soft and gives the air a really relaxing scent. 

I also enjoy applying this oil to dry skin. It doesn’t get sticky or anything of that nature, it’s really nice to use before bed on normal nights as well. 

After Shower


The first thing I do is light a candle or some incense. My favorite incense combination is one called “warm and sensual” and the “patchouli”. It creates a really warm and earthy scent. I pick mine up from melscandles.com


I have really try lips, so I tackle them first! I am trying to get through my last jar of the Lush Bubble Gum Lip Scrub. It is my favorite lip scrub, but I have a ton I need to try out!


After scrubbing it is time to apply a lip balm. I really love the Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Lip balm. It taste great and it is inexpensive. I believe it is only around $6!


My last step is to apply a body lotion. I have fallen in love with the Sade Baron Body Cream in Jasmine. I got mine in a Vegan Cuts Box, but you can get it on the Sade Baron site for just $10!! 

It is really rich, and the scent isn’t too over whealming, so it’s perfect for really moisturizing dry skin. 

That’s the last step of my routine! Now it’s time to lay back with a drink and watch some YouTube. (Again.) I am really loving The Green Bunny, Ashley is very informative. 

That’s my routine guys! How do you Pamper yourself? Comment below! Thank you so much for reading 💜

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.

Kani Botanical Beauty Galaxy Milk | Organic Makeup Review

pvm1

The more Petit Vour boxes I get, the more I am falling in love with organic beauty products. The Kani Botanicals Galaxy Milk Illuminating Beauty Oil, is no exception.

The shade is stunning, and is the ideal high light for the coming summer months. I usually do not reach for cream or liquid highlights, but man, this stuff blew my mind.

pvm2

The little card, which has some really intense Glossier vibes to it, gives you a lot of information about the product.

Read full ingredients and product info here!!

Not only can this product be used as a highlight, but it can be used under or mixed with foundation to give you skin a glowy look.

The only down side to this product is the scent. It has, what to me, is a very faint scent of cucumber melon- but off. However, the scent does not linger. The beautiful, lit from within, glow that it gives is enough for me to ignore the scent anyway.

I mean come on! It looks like star dust! Or the rays from the sun! I can not stop reach for this little vile of highlight, and it takes the smallest amount to get a magical glow. The full size retails for $32, and I can really see myself splurging on it, if I ever get through this sample that is!

I hope you enjoyed this little review, thank you so much for reading! Have you tried this product, what did you think? What is your favorite cream or liquid highlight? Comment below!

Petit Vour UN-Boxing | March 2017

pvm

*Petit Vour is a cruelty free and vegan beauty subscription, retails for $15 a month*

Let’s see what is inside this months box.

Unboxing video!

Kani Botanicals Galaxy Milk Illuminating Beauty Oil $16

This highlight is meant to give the skin a subtle glow, while also blurring fine lines and wrinkles. It isn’t very often that I use a highlighter in this format, but I think I will give it a try. It looks stunning, and it has some big claims.

Metta Intensive Replenishing Face Balm $12.50

pvm3

“A deeply hydrating vegan balm formulated with rare East African shea butter, cold-pressed oils and botanical ingredients…”

I have heard a lot about face balms recently, and have been very intrigued by them. This will be the first one I have tried, so keep your eyes peeled for an update.

Little Barn Apothecary Blue Yarrow + Geranium Cleansing Oil $8

pvm4

I am not one to turn down a facial oil, especially when it is formulated with pure plant ingredients. This oil is meant to dissolve makeup and impurities deep within pores, while toning the skin!

Formulary 55 Rosehip & Cla Facial Mask $8

pvm5

This pink clay facial mask is meant to draw out impurities, without over drying the skin. Sounds great to me. I have tried body scrubs from this brand and I love them, so I have high expectations for this.

That is all that is in the box! I would say it is very worth the price you pay for it. Have you tried any of these products, what did you think? Comment below!!
