Petit Vour, $15 per month US, $23 per month Canada
One of my adorable four-week-old baby bunnies wanted to have her picture taken with the bunnies on the Petit Vour box. Isn't she the cutest?!!!!
Petit Vour is a beauty box that sends subscribers four luxury, vegan, cruelty-free products per month. Some of the products are small samples, some are full size, and most are in between. While I don't personally keep vegan, I always like discovering new vegan products. They are often of extremely high quality. My absolute favorite makeup company, OCC, is vegan and cruelty-free and their lip products are, in my opinion, the best ones out there.
Here's what I got in the December Petit Vour:
- Blissoma Scentless Stick Natural Deodorant (travel size, $8.99; full size costs $14.99)
- Zabana Essentials Glow Stick in Bare Beauty (full size, worth $9.95)
- Kani Botanicals Petal Polish Rose Face Mask (small sample, worth $6.22; full size costs $28)
- Mai Couture Blush Papier in Sunset Boulevard and Prettyful (two sheets of each color, four sheets total, worth $1.40; 50-pack costs $17.50)
This month's Petit Vour was worth $26.56. That's not the highest value I've seen out of Petit Vour, but it's still not bad for $15.
I keep trying to like natural deodorant. I just don't think it's going to happen. I haven't liked the other ones I've gotten because they were in pots and I don't like rubbing deodorant into my armpits with my hands. I was hoping that I would like this one because it is in stick form, but I don't. It's really gritty and I don't like how the texture feels on my armpits. Emily quite liked it, though, so she will be happy to use it. The grittiness didn't bother her at all and she thought it was very effective. If you don't mind the texture, I would recommend this. If you're very sensitive to texture, you might want to look at other deodorant options.
The first thing I noticed about this Zabana Essentials Glow Stick was the strong apricot scent. I am not a big apricot fan, so I didn't enjoy the smell, but Emily loved it and thought it smelled amazing. The glow stick comes in multiple colors. I'm not sure if all subscribers got the same color, but I got it in Bare Beauty. I wish this had just a bit more shimmer to it. It was very subtle. While most people would probably love the subtlety, I'm all about glitter and shine. I would have liked to have tried the color Golden Goddess. I did like the product overall, though. It has the additional benefit of being moisturizing. Also, this can be used on the face, lips, and body, which is a plus.
I was really excited to try the Kani Petal Polish mask! I've never had a brown sugar based face mask before. This mask does a little bit of everything. It helps with acne, aging, exfoliating, and brightening, so it's a mask that just about anyone can use. I was surprised when I opened up the package. I was expecting a mask that had a more liquid texture, but it was quite dry with all the brown sugar in it. It was more like a paste. The consistency made it a little difficult to apply, but I got it to work. It smelled so good and felt really nice on my skin. It needed to be on for only five to ten minutes, so it's a great mask to use when you are short on time. The mask contains lots of plant oils (jojoba, almond, hemp, rose, and many more), so it is a bit oily. The process of rinsing it off feels very exfoliating because of the brown sugar. My skin looked radiant and felt so soft and smooth after I rinsed it off and patted my face dry. I love this mask. If I didn't have a million masks at the moment, I would buy a full size jar of this. Fortunately, the sample is a good size, so I'll get a few uses out of it.
I've seen these blush papers before and never really knew what to think of them. I didn't think they would work all that well. I was surprised by the pigment in them and how easy they were to control. Go lighter on this than you think you have to because it has a lot of pigment, so it's easy to overdo. If you use a light touch, though, the color comes out beautifully. Applying it was easy. When I got it too dark in one spot, it easily blended out. It lasted all day long. These are perfect for travel because you can put them anywhere and they take up almost no space. You tear a sheet in half and use each half for one cheek, then dispose of the paper. I like this product a lot. While it's not something I would use for my every day blush, I would definitely use this while traveling. With the amount of makeup I take with me anywhere I go, I need the smallest products possible if I'm going to make it all fit! This is the perfect size.
This was a solid month for Petit Vour. I loved the blush and mask and thought the glow stick was okay. I want to try the glow stick in a different color; I think I would like one of the other colors better. The natural deodorant wasn't for me, but Emily thought it was great and was happy to have it. The Petal Polish mask is amazing and I highly recommend it. If you need help with acne, aging, and brightening, you can work on all those issues with the one mask! Petit Vour is always great at introducing its subscribers to amazing new products. I love their curation.
