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.  The link above is my affiliate link.

Here's what came in my March Petit Vour:

My Petit Vour was worth $42.50, which is pretty average for Petit Vour.  At almost three times the price of the box, I'm happy with the value.  We got three skincare products plus one makeup item.  Petit Vour tends to be heavier on skincare than makeup, so this is an average mix for Petit Vour.

Swatch of Kani Botanicals Galaxy Milk Illuminating Beauty Oil

First up is the one makeup item this month, the Kani Botanicals Galaxy Milk Illuminating Beauty Oil.  March seems to be the month of the highlighter!  I think I've gotten highlighters in most of my beauty boxes this month.  This has a floral scent to it that I love, but it goes away after it's applied.  You shake it and use a dropper to apply the liquid to wherever you need some highlight.  A little goes a long way, so don't overdo it!  It gave me a soft, subtle highlight that was iridescent but not glittery.  If you want an allover glow, you can mix this in with your foundation or moisturizer.  I think this is my favorite highlighter of the many I've sampled this month!

Metta Skincare's Intensive Replenishing Face Balm is made with shea butter and plant oils and is supposed to hydrate, fight signs of aging, and improve radiance.  It smells quite strongly of lavender.  This is a very thick moisturizer, but it warms up and softens if you rub it in your hands.  It feels a little oily at first, but it absorbs quickly.  This is recommended for people with dry and/or mature skin, so it isn't ideal for someone who has combination/oily skin like me.  I still liked it, though.  It would be perfect for the middle of the winter when my skin dries out more.

The Little Barn Apothecary Blue Yarrow and Geranium Cleansing Oil wasn't for me.  I know some people love oil cleansing, but it is not my favorite.  To use this, you apply a few pumps to your face, massage for a minute, place a warm washcloth over your face for a minute, then wipe off the oil without scrubbing.  You can rinse if you want to, but they recommend not rinsing and allowing the oils to sink into your skin.  This removes my makeup well, but it doesn't feel good on my already oily face.  It took a lot of work to get it all off.  If you have dry skin, this would probably be amazing.

Finally, we have the Formulary 55 Rosehip and Clay Facial Mask.  This is a powder mask that you mix with water to make a paste.  You can apply it to your skin and allow it to set 10 to 15 minutes before rinsing, or you can apply it and then massage your face for several minutes if you need exfoliation.  It contains only a few ingredients (French white and pink clay, rosehip powder, ground comfrey root, and organic rose geranium essential oil) and smells of roses.  I tried the mask both ways and found it made my skin extra soft.  It is also supposed to draw out toxins.  I highly recommend this mask.

This was a pretty good month for Petit Vour!  I loved the Kani Botanicals Galaxy Milk Illuminating Beauty Oil and the Formulary 55 Rosehip and Clay Facial Mask.  While the Little Barn Apothecary cleansing oil and Metta face balm were great products, they would have been better suited to someone with dry skin.  All the products were new to me, though, and I enjoyed trying them.

What did you think of the March Petit Vour?  Did everyone get the same products this month?
