Everything in the April box!

Kumari River Bath & Body Oil ($8.50) A beautifully scented organic bath and body oil – lavender, peppermint,  lemon, rosemary, geranium, frankincense, and chamomile in a grapeseed, sesame, olive oil base.

This is an oil you want to keep on smelling, and nearly all of it is certified organic. It’s definitely calming and exactly what I wanted.

Juara Coconut Illipe Hand & Nail Balm ($2.50) The smell of Juara has to be one of my absolute favorite smells, so my eyes brightened when I found this in my box! It’s a rich coconut and shea based balm that’s absolute perfection, and good for more than just your skin – it’s also for nails and cuticles. The candlenut and buruti oils in this balm really give long-lasting hydration. I need more Juara!

Bedrock & Bloom Smart Ash All Natural & Organic Teeth Whitener ($3) Smart Ash whitens the teeth by using Wildcrafted Activated Coconut Charcoal and is a fluoride non-GMO and of course vegan toothpaste alternative. I like the claim that it remineralizes so I’m going to have to suck it up and try it out.

Studio 78 Paris Organic Makeup ($32) I received this prettily decorated cream eyeshadow in Venice.  The name of the eyeshadow is “We Move Around Cream Eyeshadow” actually – translated from French, which probably loses something.

I love that this came with a compact mirror! It’s an interested dusty plum shade.

Unfortunately it seems that the top was a little dried out – like the moisture wasn’t distributed evenly through this product and it really made a bit of a mess.Petit Vour Box April 2016 (8)

It was kind of… chunky to apply. Clearly there was something wrong with my product – I’ve seen swatches of this from others with no issues. Some subscribers received the 100 Percent Pure Fruit Pigmented Pot Rouge or 100% Pure fruit pigmented color cosmetics stain eye shadow and I haven’t heard any complaints about those.

The total value of my box this month was $46 and would have been great if the eyeshadow was OK. I did check in with PV and they haven’t heard any reports, so I’m marking it as a one-off unless I hear differently.

    I got the same box and had the same issue with the eyeshadow. I was really unimpressed and sent a bit of a scathing email to PV, but have not received a response. This product was overvalued and of poor quality. I’m pretty unhappy with this box and with PV.

    • Jessica F

      Update – PV customer service wrote back and will send a replacement product. Good on them. I don’t think the eyeshadow was meant to be chunky. Seems to have been some sort of defect.

    I found my information card because I couldn’t remember what item I gave to my sister. I received the 100% PURE fruit pigmented satin eye shadow, Ursa Major fortifying face Balm, Kumairi River Bath & Body Oil, and Juara Hand & Nail Balm.

    So Petit Vour isn’t sending the same products to everyone (except for color variations)? I took a break from them and then resubbed for 3 months. I got Ecco Bella lip gloss, Ursa Major face balm, and the same Kumari and Juara products you got.

    You should try the Smart Ash! It really works. I use it when I want to whiten my teeth (I don’t remember which sub box I got it from). I usually brush my teeth with toothpaste after using it. I don’t know if that is advised or not, lol.

    • Brandy

      No they don’t always. They said in a spoiler too that there would be variations. I can’t see how toothpaste after would hurt!!!
