Petit Vour, $15 per month (add $8 for Canadian orders and $10 for other international orders)
Wembley barely fits in the box! He is too cute!
Petit Vour is a vegan, cruelty-free beauty box. Each month, subscribers get four sample size products. They are often heavier on skincare than makeup, but there is always a mix. Oftentimes, subscribers get the same products with some scent or color variation, but Petit Vour has had some box variations recently. You can e-mail them to get a profile to fill out if you subscribe so that they can better customize your boxes.

As you may have already heard, my sweet Emmett passed away two weeks ago. It was quite unexpected and I am devastated. He wasn't even two years old. As I told him every day, he was the most loved bunny in the world. I never knew how funny, loving, and full of personality a bunny could be until I met Emmett. No matter how bad my day was, he could always make me smile. Emmett was one of my first bunny models and he was the original Petit Vour model. RIP, my beloved Emmett. You are so missed. Wembley is an amazing little bun, but he will never replace you.
Here's what came in the August Petit Vour box:
- Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Hand Cream (full size, worth $12)
- Kaia Naturals The Takesumi Detox Bamboo Charcoal Deodorant in Juicy Bamboo (travel size, worth $7.50; full size costs $21)
- NOTO Botanics Multi-Benne Tint Stick (full size, worth $18.50)
- Soapwalla The Balm Concentrated Repair Balm (teeny sample, worth $5; full size costs $64)
My August Petit Vour was worth $43, which is pretty good for a $15 box. I got two body products, a makeup item, and a skincare item, and two of the four products were full size!
Juice Beauty is a brand you will see often in natural beauty boxes. People tend to either love or hate their green apple scent. My mom loves the scent, but it is not for me. The Age Defy Hand Cream is somewhat strongly scented, but the scent goes away after a few minutes. This hand cream is very moisturizing, but it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave my hands feeling greasy. I would like it more if it had a different scent, but it makes my hands feel soft, so I can look past the scent.
I've tried Kaia Naturals' The Takesumi Detox Bamboo Charcoal Deodorant before. The bamboo charcoal in the deodorant is supposed to kill odor-causing bacteria. The Juicy Bamboo scent is citrus-y, which I really like. This is supposed to pull the toxins out of your skin, which will make you smell worse for a couple of weeks before it will make you start smelling better. I was skeptical and thought maybe it just didn't work, but, when I tried this, I noticed I smelled much worse, so it may well be getting the toxins out. The smell bothered me so much, though, that I couldn't make it through the full two weeks of using it to see if I would start to smell better. Natural deodorants aren't for me, unfortunately.
NOTO Botanics' Multi-Benne Tint Stick is lightly pigmented, but it will give you a flush of color. This can be used on your cheeks, lips, or eyes. The color doesn't really work for me as an eye makeup color and it was too subtle for my lips. I liked this as a blush, though. It gave my cheeks a little bit of pinkness that looked natural and pretty.
Finally, we have the Soapwalla The Balm Concentrated Repair Balm. This little balm can be used for just about anything. You can use this as a face mask, a basic moisturizer, an under-eye cream, a cuticle oil, and a body moisturizer, plus you can even use it for tattoos. It contains a blend of jojoba, moringa oil, prickly pear seed oil, arnica, horse chestnut, St. John's wort, tansy, and frankincense. It's exceptionally moisturizing. It looks like a hard balm in the container, but, once you touch it, it melts instantly and is very easy to use. It has a natural scent that isn't my style, but I like this product enough that I can overlook it. I couldn't believe how quickly this absorbed into my skin. It didn't leave my skin feeling greasy at all. This is going to be perfect for winter!
I'm loving my August Petit Vour box! The deodorant wasn't really for me, but I liked everything else. My favorite product was definitely the Soapwalla The Balm. That stuff is impressive and I highly recommend it.
