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.  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.

Each box contains a card detailing what’s included, how to use the products, and how much the products are worth.

The theme for this month was “Pretty Fantastique” but I only wish the box was just as fantastic.  Don’t get me wrong, I got valuable stuff, it just wasn’t my favorite box.

Full Size Eye Shadow!

100% PURE Fruit Pigmented Satin Eye Shadow:  This was this month’s full-size product and is valued at $25.  The color I received was “Bahama” and it arrived just in time for my cruise to the Bahamas!  What cool timing!  This is a nice cream eyeshadow made with fruit pigments.  What I liked about it was the nice neutral color and the summery shimmer.  I applied the shadow with my finger which kinda got to be a mess since it would often get under my nails when I dipped them in the pot.  It went on smoothly but when it came to lasting power, I was let down.  Like all other cream eye shadows I have encountered, it starts to settle into the eye creases within an hour and looks clumpy so I am not too happy with that.  I don’t recommend using this as an all over eyelid color due to the clumping factor.  I think this eyeshadow would work great as a nice highlight for underneath the eyebrow, though and I will definitely keep using this to that end.

Ursa Major Fortifying Face Balm

URSA MAJOR Fortifying Face Balm:  This was a nice sample-size face lotion (valued at $9.50, full-size is $36) so it was ideal for taking on vacation.  A little of this goes a long way, so don’t overdo it.  It is a pretty thin lotion which is good because it feels breathable and didn’t clog my pores.  Unfortunately it smelled almost identical to my Suki Transformative Mask from last month which I did not like at all.  I will use the rest of this sample but will not likely repurchase.

KUMARI River Bath and Body Oil:  This is a .5 fl oz “sample” of this oil, but I think the size is great and will last a really long time.  It has a little dropper and you can use a few drops in your bath or apply to your skin after a shower when your skin is still moist.  This is a blend of lavender, mint and chamomile, so it is a very relaxing scent, great for applying before bedtime.  I don’t really take baths because my tub stopper is broken and I don’t use much in the way of oil, so I probably won’t get much use out of this, even though I like it.  I do have an aromatherapy diffuser…I wonder if I could use this in there?  I think I may have to try that out.

JUARA Hand & Nail Balm:  This is a .27 oz sample size worth $2.50, the full-size is $25.  I really liked this hand cream.  I often have dry hands due to my job and this provided a great boost of hydration without a greasy feeling.  It smelled just like coconut which got me in the mood for my vacation and made me excited to go to the beach.  I may have to buy a full bottle of this when the winter rolls around and my hands start to dry out again.  I think this would be great in the winter because it could be a constant reminder of sunny weather!

Overall this month’s box was valued at $45.50–what a great value considering I only spent $15.  I liked a lot of the products but wasn’t blown away by any one thing.  I am at least glad that I will use these products and they won’t end up in the trash.
