My latest subscription addiction has arrived – the Petit Vour beauty box! Petit Vour lets you try out non-toxic, vegan, and ethically made beauty products, for only $15 a month. Each box comes with 4 deluxe-sized (and sometime full-sized) products, and is shipped out between the 15th and 20th of every month. They currently ship to the US, and to Canada (for $8 extra).
“After years of scouring, we have sifted through the clutter to find high-quality makeup, skin care products, and more that meet both your ethical and beauty needs. We seek out niche brands across the globe as well as high-end brands we simply adore.” – Madeline Alcott + Ryan Miner [Co-Founders of Petit Vour]
So without further ado, let’s dive into the March 2016 Petit Vour box!
Petit Vour March 2016 Box
Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser (Value: $11) – I’ve heard so many great things about this cleanser, so I was excited to see it in my box! I love that this combines a cleanser and exfoliator into one product – simplifies my routine a bit! It starts off as a crumbly-solid texture, then the exfoliating grains slowly dissolve away as it foams and settles into a rich, creamy cleanser. It smells divine too, like lemon pound cake (even tastes like it too – that’s right, I took a little lick off the lips…hehe). (Some subscribers received the Suki Transformative Purifying Masque.)
Yarok Feed Your Moisture Shampoo (Value: $1) – This shampoo uses organic fair trade African black soap, argan, organic coconut, and organic hemp seed oils to help restore moisture, without stripping hair (and scalp) of its own natural oils. It’s free of alcohol, parabens, and sulfates, which is a huge plus for me.
Lauren B Beauty Dual Base/Top Coat (Value: $22) – This is my first time trying out Lauren B nail products and I’m pretty impressed. The formula is a bit thinner than other base/top coats I’ve tried, which ends up working to its advantage. It provides a super smooth, streak-free application and adds extra shine to your polish. I’m also loving that it’s 5-free (no formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, camphor, DBP, or toluene). The only downside is that the drying time can take 3-5 minutes.
Little Barn Apothecary Geranium + White Tea Beauty Mist (Value: $8) – A blend by LBA created exclusively for Petit Vour. It’s filled with healing plant energy and antioxidants, and can be used after cleansing to calm, soften and hydrate. I personally love using this after applying any mineral or powder foundation – it does a great job at setting my makeup, re-hydrating, and adding a soft glow to my look. It has the most amazing floral scent, sprays a super fine mist (gives you just the right amount of mist without drenching the face, and evenly covers your face in two quick spritzes), and comes in a pretty glass bottle. Totally buying the full size (and a few travel-sizes) once I run out!
Overall, for my first box, I was pretty impressed! The products were excellent quality, and the sizes were generous almost all-around. All-in-all, I found a new favorite facial mist, got to try out some skincare I’d been eyeing, and discovered a new 5-free nail polish brand and sulfate-free shampoo. The total value of my box month came out to $42 – well worth the $15 monthly cost!
