My October Petit Vour box arrived last week, but since I already had blog posts scheduled, it had to wait until today. If you follow me on InstaGram, you will have seen my unboxing. Here on the blog, you will get the unboxing AND my first impressions. Full reviews to follow once I’ve had a chance to test things out. [all info in italics is taken from the Petit Vour website]
Petit Vour is a cruelty-free and vegan monthly subscription box with four (occasionally five) products.
The subscription is $18 USD a month in the U.S., $23 USD for Canada, and $25 USD for the rest of the world. With the exchange rate (@ 1.326) my box cost me $30.50 CAD this month.
Let’s take a closer look inside to see what I got this month:
Goldfaden MD Bright Eyes sample size $18 USD, full size 0.5 oz / 15 ml $55 USD
Dr. Goldfaden’s advanced, ultra-light brightening eye cream reduces the appearance of under eye darkness, pufﬁness, and ﬁne lines for a more luminous and youthful glow. Soy Peptide, Rice Bran Extract, Organic Red Tea, and Arnica work together to deliver de-puffing and brightening properties while ensuring the eye area has a luminous and youthful-looking appearance. Perfect for all skin types.
- Visibly brightens eye area
- Reduces the appearance of under eye pufﬁness and fatigue
- May minimize the appearance of unwanted lines
My eyes prone to dark circles and puffiness due to seasonal allergies and occasional insomnia so anything that claims to help, I’m willing to try once I do a patch test.
When I went to do my patch test, I found that the pump was defective and no product came out no matter how much I pressed the pump. Thankfully the Petit Vour Customer Service is really awesome, and they’re sending me a replacement. The review might be a little delayed as it probably won’t arrive for at least a week or so.
Kani Botanicals Prismatic Highlighter Balm full size $28
A lightweight, glowy highlighter balm that leaves a natural, radiant glow. Formulated with nourishing ingredients, it creates a subtle, radiant sheen.
I received the shade Rose Quartz (cool pink), it is also available in Moonstone (light gold). This looks really pretty, and not at all glittery. I can’t wait to try this out.
MAI Couture Bamboo Charcoal Blotting Paper full size $10 for 60 sheets
Help absorb skin impurities and toxins with Mai Couture’s Bamboo Charcoal Blotting Papier. Effective at drawing out pollutants, bamboo charcoal absorbs bacteria, toxins, and micro-particles from the skin.
I haven’t owned blotting paper in a long time, but these ones sound great. I’ll probably keep them in my work bag for on the go touch-ups.
Formulary 55 Rosehip & Clay Facial Mask full size $8 for 0.75 oz package
Detoxify and soften naturally with this gentle pink clay facial mask. This blend will draw out toxins without over drying the skin. Suitable for all skin types.
I love facial masks, and I plan on trying this out on the weekend if my patch test is ok. The joys of sensitive skin – but better safe than sorry!
Overall I think that the October box was good – I’m most excited by the eye cream and the highlighting balm. Reviews to follow once I’ve had a chance to test everything out!
Total value of this month’s box – $64 USD / $84.86 CAD!
