I love makeup and beauty products and am slowly making the transition to cruelty-free. For me, cruelty-free is becoming a passion, but it is a constant challenge for me to discern when companies truly do or don’t test on animals. I happened upon Petit Vour’s subscription box when I was reading reviews on all of the beauty boxes out there. I learned that Petit Vour is a site which provides luxury vegan, non-toxic, and cruelty-free beauty products. Petit Vour offers a monthly subscription box costing $15 USD (or $23 in Canada) which boasts over $35 worth of products in each box.
JUICE BEAUTY Stem Cellular Booster Serum: I would qualify this as a “travel size” product as it really is larger than a sample. It is about .25 fl oz and is valued at $19. The full-size is a one ounce bottle and is valued at $75. The gel serum goes on smoothly and is absorbed quickly without leaving a greasy feeling. It is meant to plump skin (reduce wrinkles) and to even out the skin tone. I have used it about five times and still have half a bottle left. I think it’s too soon to tell whether it is working or not but I really like the way it feels and smells. My forehead did end up breaking-out after I used this but I’m not sure if it was the serum’s fault or if it was hormone-related. I’m pretty impressed with the value in this little bottle.
HAN SKIN CARE COSMETICS Eyeshadow: This is a full-size eyeshadow valued at $13. The color I received was taupey plum–I don’t see any “plum” in but I do love the shimmery bronze color. It is made with 100% natural rice powder and has anti-aging ingredients. I love the way this eyeshadow looks and it is very smooth upon application. For me it looked best in the eyelid crease, not as a base color.
CHRISTY ORGANICS “Trance” Natural Perfume: This is an oil-based perfume smelling of jasmine, bergamot, and ylang ylang. This is a 1ml sample valued at $5.25 and the 12 ml full-size is available for $65. My husband’s first impression when smelling it out of the bottle was that it smelled like rubber tires. I am happy to say that I gave it a chance despite his assessment and have fully enjoyed it. I tend toward fruitier perfumes (if I wear perfume at all) but was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the floral scents in this perfume. I think it works really well with my body chemistry and the name of the perfume, “trance,” is quite accurate as I find the scent entrancing. This is a perfume I would consider purchasing in the future!
GRAYDON Hair Smoothie: This conditioner/detangler sample is valued at $2.50 and a full eight ounce bottle is $25. It is meant as a conditioner for thin hair but can be left in for several minutes to achieve the same effect for thicker hair and is also supposed to stimulate hair growth. The smoothie can also be used as a leave-in conditioner if applied just to the tips of hair. I have used this smoothie several times and still have half a bottle left so it’s a great size and would be ideal to take on vacation. It contains essential oils including parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. When I use this it smells like I’m cooking instead of showering–which I don’t love, but it’s growing on me. The scent doesn’t stay in my hair once I’ve washed the conditioner out, so I’m able to tolerate it better. My skin is typically sensitive to rosemary but this did not cause my scalp to itch or get a rash. Though it’s not my favorite scent, I am still enjoying using it.
All-in-all the total value of this box was $39.75, not too shabby for only paying $15! You can also go to Petit Vour’s website and rate all of the items in your box and you’ll accumulate store credit for just giving your feedback! I was thrilled with my first Petit Vour subscription box and can hardly wait for March’s! I feel like I’m really getting introduced to some neat stuff that I would never have considered buying for myself.
