Petit Vour | June 2017

*This box Retails for $15 a month. It contains luxury, cruelty free, vegan, and clean beauty product samples*


Mai Couture Vitamin C and E Skin Care Blotting Sheets (Retails for $10)

I have used regular blotting sheets from Mai Coture and they were nice. I am sure these will work just as well. 

It is pretty neat that they are infused with SkinCare benefits. 

Nui Body Coconut Oil Makeup Remover wipes $4 (Retail $15 full size)

Can’t go wrong with natural makeup remover. This came with two pads to try it out.

“Pure coconut oil and organic essential oils will leave your skin flawless and glowing. This relaxing blend of coconut oil, geranium and lavender essential oils slows premature aging while soothing the mind”

Modern Minerals Lip Creme Tint “Fuscia” (Retails $20)


This is a really pretty shade for summer. The formula is light weight and easy to apply, making it great for hot weather! The formula is infused with lotus wei flower essence and gem stone energy. 

My Daughter Fragrances Bloom 23 $2.50 (Retails $85, full size)

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.

I really enjoyed this months Box! Well worth the $15.

I am really excited that I finally got my May Petit Vour box! It is a nice little treat. It is usually the last subscription box I receive each month.


HAN SkinCare Cosmetics Eyeshadow “Sunset”$13

I have another shadow from HAN and I love it. This one is just as pigmented and buttery as the other. In my opinion, a shade like this makes a great one shadow look. 


I love that this box usually includes one cosmetic product a month. It really helps when building a natural makeup collection. 


Mullein & Sparrow Facial Mist Toner $8 (Full Size $36)

“Condition and prepare skin for absorption to empower your Skincare ritual. Formulated with organic botanicals to keep skin luminous and supple while supporting homeostasis. To use, lightly mist onto face or into hands and gently press onto the skin.”

I love face mists. They make me feel very relaxed and refreshed. I have really been wanting to try Mullein and Sparrow as well!


Juara Java Plum and Avocado nourishing face masks $6 ( full size $38)

“A nutrient-rich combination of Avocado Oil, Java plum, banana and mango deeply hydrates soothes, and plumps skin, leaving behind a soft, dewy complexion.”

This sounds like the perfect summer mask. I have high hopes for it, I have a hand and nail cream from Juara that I really enjoy.


Aromatherapy Associates Bath and Shower oil $5 ($73 Full Size)

This sounds perfect. After a stressful day of work? The perfect way to end the night. By the way, I have already smelled it and it smells amazing!

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!!

Petit Vour Un-Boxing | Feburary 2017

pvf

*PV is $15 a month. Curelty free, vegan, and usually green beauty products.*

Sorry it is a little late. Let’s just jump right into this.

pvf1

Konjac Sponge Co. Facial Sponge $12:

I love these hyped up sponges. Getting tools that I will actually use in boxes makes me ecstatic. This one is actually made of Konjac potato, so it is full of nourishing minerals and antioxidants.

Alia Cosmetics 3-in-1 Nail Color Remover $1:

This is something I have been wanting to try, so I was excited to see it when I opened the box. It is healthier than acetone and has vitamins a,c,e, and pure argon oil.

St.Tropica Organic Coconut Hot Oil Hair Mask $5

I have never used a hot oil mask, so I am interested to see how this works out. You microwave it for 30 seconds, and leave it on your hair for 20 minuets. It says to get stronger thicker more lustrous hair. Sounds nice to me.

pvf2Juice Beauty Phyto Pigments Cream Shadow Stick “Stone” $22

This is a product I already own (same shade) and love. It makes a fantastic base, but also works wonderfully on its own and as an eyeliner as well! The one I already had is starting to run low, glad that I now have a back up!

*watch my video, here. By the way, I have decided to for sure throw “Stone” in a near future giveaway!”

I would say this months box is very worth it! What did you think? Comment below! Thank you so much for reading and I really hope that you enjoyed it.

Adorn Cosmetics Hydrating Cream Foundation | Sample Series

creamfoundationrefill_dsc0203_240x240

*I only had a small sample jar of this product, so can not speak for very long extended use, but I did have quite a large sample, so I tried it for a few weeks.*

Adorn Minerals is a cruelty free, vegan, and natural brand out of Australia. I have tried one other product from them, but for this post, we are going to focus on their hydrating cream foundation.

It comes it five shades, I had the shade “Fair”. It was a fantastic match.

Price:

I can only find the refill for this product now listed on their site. It retails for $55.

Ingredients:

“Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Mica (CI 77019), Zinc Oxide (CI 77947), Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Zea Mays, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit*, Polyglyceryl Oleate, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Tocopherol, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Seed Extract, may contain (+/-) Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Ultramarines (CI 77007)

*Denotes a Certified Organic Ingredient

Our Australian made, cruelty free cosmetics are NOT tested on animals, and are made from pure earth minerals & organic plant ingredients.

They are also:

– Palm & Mineral Oil free
– Paraben & Petrochemical free
– Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate free
– Gluten free
– Nano particle free
– Free from fillers such as Talc, Rice Powder, Clay or Itchy Bismuth
– Free from synthetic fragrance and colours”

My experience/ thoughts:

I actually love this foundation. I have dry skin, so it felt very nice and didn’t cause my skin to look or feel cakey through out the day. However, it did make my skin look very oily as the day went on, so I recommend setting it. At least in areas that you develop some oil.

I really enjoyed using this product as a concealer, sense it has such good coverage. It also works fantastic as an eye shadow base. It cancels out discoloration and prevents creasing. They actually suggest using it as a shadow base as well as a foundation. I believe I saw this on my Petit Vour card, which is why I tried it.

Will I purchase?

After I use up some foundations and can find it with the packaging, or a way to store the refill pan; absolutely! This is a fantastic foundation.

Here is what it looks like on the skin, for a reference picture.
