We received this box for our review. Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure
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. I think Petit Vour does a great job at presenting a pretty box.

Petit Vour has one of the best product information cards around – it’s an actual card! Look at that lovely print!

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 2 full-sized products and 2 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!

Zabana Essentials Banana Colloidal Oatmeal Face Mask + Scrub ($12.50) Ok, this is half the size of the standard container, yet it came in an unresealable foil packet. That in itself is a disappointment. I grabbed a Ziploc bag so I could keep the rest, but read on.

The mask lists clay and bananas, plus colloidal oatmeal, as the first few ingredients. This is not a mask at all. It might be a scrub, but this is the messiest product I have ever used. I started with damp skin and squeezed some of the product on my fingers and started rubbing it on my face. It immediately started crumbling up and falling into the sink, the floor, etc. There is no way this would work in the way a traditional mask would work, there was nothing left on my face!

My skin felt kind of greasy after using this scrub. I think this might work ok as a body scrub, although there probably isn’t enough left in the sample to use on my whole body. I would suggest mixing it in a bowl with some water, stirring until you get a good consistency. I liked the smell, which kind of smelled like something you might bake into a muffin.

EiR NYC Sunset Oil ($5) is designed to be used after time spent in the sun. I’m going to pack it in my bag for my vacation next month!

Lots of moisturizing oils are in here, such as olive, sweet almond, coconut, jojoba, and vitamin E. Aloe is a known skin soother while arnica reduces inflammation. I used it after a shower and my body absorbed it quickly. It had a mild natural indeterminate herbal scent that I liked and that faded quickly.

Lauren B Reparative Cuticle Oil ($22) Now this is a nice cuticle product and I really need to be more diligent about applying this type of product before bed.

A variety of moisturizing oils can be found in here including safflower, avocado, and sweet almond plus several essential oils like ylang ylang, rosemary, and scented geranium.

The container makes it easy to take on the go and has a unique dropper tip that is easy to apply right where you need it. I rubbed any remaining oil into my hands before covering it all with hand lotion. It has a light herbal scent, probably most like the geranium.

Au Naturale Cosmetics Color Theory Creme Corrector in Sweet Basil ($24) Subscribers received one of several colors. I received Sweet Basil, which is perfect for me since the theory is that green will cancel red, and I have rosacea. Other shades may help brighten the under-eye area, eliminate sallowness, or hide veins and under-eye bags.

Castor and jojoba seed oils help this glide on while micas and iron oxides provide the camouflage.

Just glide it on and pat but don’t rub, which cancels any benefit from the color. You could still see some of the product on my skin but when I covered it with a foundation you couldn’t tell it was there. Make sure to wind it back down before placing the cap on – I didn’t do that and made a mess of it.

I am always amazed by the products that come in my monthly Petit Vour Beauty Box! Sure, one if the items ended up not working well for me, but the other three were amazing! I was especially happy with the cuticle oil since it is just so easy to use, and I look forward to playing makeup artist with my new concealer to see if I can perfect my complexion. The oil will get used up pretty quickly and is perfect for my upcoming trip. I found my May box to have a value of around $63.50! That’s awesome for a natural beauty box!
