Notification

Petit Vour is a monthly vegan beauty subscription box sending the “crème de la cruelty-free.” Petit Vour is $18 a month for 4-5 cruelty-free and non-toxic beauty products, mostly deluxe sample sized but with the occasional full-sized item. Prepay for 12 boxes and the price drops to $15 a box! Each box will have a value of between $45-$60. Petit Vour has around 30 ingredients that they pledge NOT to put in  boxes and of course each item must be vegan and cruelty-free.

The Petit Vour Beauty Box is made for the beauty devotee whose lifestyle leans toward compassion.
Each month we’ll share the best in plant-based beauty, culled from beauty’s kindest. Inside you’ll find generously-sized products (personalized to your beauty profile) for you to apply, blend, buff, lather, soak, and spray.

The items were packed in white paper squiggles and everything was in perfect condition.

This month I got to choose the colors for two of my items!

Petit Vour has the prettiest product information card – it looks like a greeting card and the illustrations are always feminine and lovely.

The inside of the card listed each item, some info about the item, and the value, both for the sample and the full-sized product. This month Petit Vour sent one full-sized product and three travel sized products.

The back of the card gave info on how to earn reward points, plus if you share a photo of your box on social media you may win a special prize!

Everything in my box!

Derma-E Purifying Daily Detox Scrub ($1.55) Derma-E shows up often in subscription boxes so I was happy to have another tube of this exfoliator. Not only is it a super-cool silver shade but it isn’t too scrubby and doesn’t leave my skin feeling like I used sandpaper. Although this can be used daily, I prefer to use it once a week. Seaweed, charcoal, and apricot seed powder are some of the all-natural ingredients found in this scrub.

Elate Clean Cosmetics Creme Revealer In Buff ($4) I got to choose the shade that I wanted for my concealer, which is a nice change from just getting whatever color is deemed universal. I used this creamy product under my makeup, then watched the super helpful video on the Elate website and realized I am doing my makeup all wrong and have done so all my life.

The shade Buff is a “neutral-toned concealer for light, medium and deep skin” according to the Elate website. It is made with jojoba and castor oil and has a moisturizing feel, which is fine with me and my dry skin. This time around I applied my base and eye shadow first, then went over it with the concealer. I set it with powder afterwards and thought it looked pretty good, but it didn’t hide everything. Still, if you’re looking for something clean to use use on your face I think this fits the bill.

Red Apple Lipstick In Natural ($22.90) I got to choose my shade of lip pencil, another first. I went with Natural, which is described as having a little bit of pink and a little bit of brown, for a variety of lips. You know this stuff goes in your mouth eventually so if you have a gluten allergy, then check this brand out because these are gluten-free.

Some lip liners drag painfully across my lips, but this one was almost like a lipstick, it glided on smoothly. The color was kind of opaque and the shade was neutral, but I placed a couple of drops of long-wear lipstick on my lips and blended it all together to come up with a color combo that worked for me.

Here are the makeup products swatched on my inner arm.

Zabana Essentials Tamanu Calendula Healing & Anti-Blemish Face Balm ($14.98) I have dry skin and was a little hesitant to try this on my skin since it says it is for acne-prone skin. I shouldn’t have worried, as this stuff melted on contact and had a very slippy feel to it.

I just wanted to show that my container was not filled to the top, it stopped about half-way up.

Tamanu oil is a skin savior according to my research and is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. Safflower and sunflower oils are also in this little jar. This magic potion smells good thanks to cocoa butter and lemon essential oil.

I have rosacea and hope that this might relieve some of the redness on my face. It sure feels nice and smells good.

Petit Vour is one of the boxes that I really look forward to finding every month in my mailbox! I was happy that I got to choose the shades of two of my items – it makes me less likely to complain if I don’t like them! Luckily, they worked out well for me and I especially loved that they were so smooth and didn’t drag on my skin. The scrub is one I use frequently and even though the face balm was anti-blemish, it turned out to be my favorite item in the box! This month’s box had a value of around $43.43, which is well over the price paid for the subscription.
