Petit Vour, $15 per month US, $23 per month for Canadian orders, and $25 per month for other international addresses
Isn't little Apple just the cutest? She loved checking out the Petit Vour box, but she was sad there were no bunny friends printed on the box this month.
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.
Petit Vour sent me this box free of charge for review.
Here's what I got in my February Petit Vour:
- St. Tropica Organic Coconut Hot Oil Hair Mask (full size, worth $5)
- Konjac Sponge Co. Facial Sponge in French Green Clay (worth $12)
- AILA Cosmetics 3-in-1 Nail Color Remover Wipe (one cloth, worth $1; 10-pack costs $10)
- Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Cream Shadow Stick in 02 Mist (full size, worth $22)
My February Petit Vour box was worth $40. That's 2.5 times the cost of the box, so I'm very happy with the value. We got a hair product, a nail product, a skincare product, and a makeup item this month, so we got a lot of variety! It looks like all subscribers received the same products this month, although the type of Konjac sponge and the color of the eyeshadow varied. Normally, the box is a hot pink with bunnies on it, but we got a medium pink box with no bunnies on it that came inside of a plain brown box this month. I hope they go back to the old boxes.
I've gotten the St. Tropica Organic Coconut Hot Oil Hair Mask a number of times before. To use this, you warm it up in the microwave, apply to your hair and let set for 20 minutes, then rinse. It makes your hair very soft and shiny, but it is a little difficult to rinse out, I find. If your hair needs some serious hydration, though, I highly recommend this product.
I love konjac sponges, so I'm always happy to get a new one. I got the French green clay sponge, but subscribers received a variety of konjac sponge types. Konjac sponges are made from a tuber, so this is all vegetable fiber with French green clay mixed in. The green clay is meant for oily and combination skin and is supposed to tighten pores and draw out dirt. To use this, you wet it until it softens, then you can massage your face with it, either by itself or with a small amount of facial cleanser. It is gently exfoliating and always makes my face feel soft. My favorite konjac sponges are the charcoal ones, but I was happy to try the French green clay sponge.
I've tried AILA nail polish before, but this is my first time trying the 3-in-1 Nail Color Remover Wipe. This is an acetone-free nail polish remover that also contains argan oil to hydrate your nails and cuticles. I've never found an acetone-free nail polish remover that was all that effective and this was no exception, unfortunately. If you work really hard, you can get regular nail polish off your nails with this, but forget it if you have glitter polish on. This was moisturizing, but I need something a little stronger to get my nail polish off.
Finally, there was the Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Cream Shadow Stick in 02 Mist. This color is pretty close to my skin color, as you can see above. This works as a highlighter shadow for the brow bone, but I wouldn't use this on my lid as the color doesn't show up all that well on me. It went on easily, had good pigment, and lasted all day, but the color wasn't for me.
This was an okay month for Petit Vour. Last month's Petit Vour was phenomenal, but this month's wasn't quite as good. I loved the konjac sponge, liked the hair mask, thought the eyeshadow was okay, and didn't really like the nail polish remover. Everything besides the hair mask was new to me, though, so it was nice to try the products, even if they didn't all work for me.
What did you think of the February Petit Vour box? Did anyone get a different konjac sponge type or eyeshadow color?
