Juice Beauty Antioxidant Serum Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Antioxidant Serum from Juice Beauty that came in my April Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from Petit Vour website]

Juice Beauty Antioxidant Serum

Clinically proven to help reduce free radicals up to 87%, this lightweight serum feeds your skin with vitamins and antioxidants from certified organic botanical juices, moisturizes with fatty acid-packed plant oils and smoothes the appearance of fine lines with peptides, alpha lipoic acid and CoQ10. The perfect daily vitamin to use after cleansing and before your moisturizer. A Daily Essential for all skin types.

Juice Beauty Antioxidant Serum

This is a very lightweight and hydrating serum that soaks into my skin quickly. You don’t need a lot to cover your entire face and neck. It works well with other products – moisturizer / face cream, sunscreen and foundations. I’ve been using it both morning and night for a few weeks now, and I have to say that I really love it, and will be adding it to my wishlist.

It has tons of skin friendly hydrating and skin firming ingredients. Very gentle on my sensitive skin.

Blissoma Refine Clay Renewal Treatment Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Blissoma Refine Clay Renewal Treatment that came in my April Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Blissoma Refine Clay Renewal Treatment

The mask base is Rhassoul clay, mined from lava clay beds in Morocco. […]  Rhassoul has been shown to improve the appearance of skin flakiness and texture, improve hydration, improve the appearance of coloration, and improve the appearance of skin irritations.[…] Willowbark and raw organic Celery Juice aid with gentle, non mechanical exfoliation to keep pores deeply cleansed and unclogged. Live enzymes and mild compounds like the salicins in Willowbark gently dissolve away dead skin cells even without scrubbing. Herb extracts of organic Chickweed and Fennel further draw out impurities and deep clean pores. Organic Roses, Olive Leaf, and Echinacea improve the appearance of skin’s tone and firmness.

Blissoma Refine Clay Renewal Treatment

This mask is highly recommended for troubled and acne prone skin types. Refine keeps pores softened and open by removing dead skin cells and balancing hydration. You can dot it on a blemish and leave it on overnight to reduce the visible appearance of redness and swelling in breakouts. Unrefined Oils of organic Cranberry seed and organic Red Raspberry straight from pressing offer nourishment and natural source Vitamin E. Clay products are often not recommended for dry skin types because they tend to over-absorb oil from the skin, leaving skin uncomfortable. With Refine even dry skin types can enjoy Blissoma’s clay creation because of how they have balanced the clay with oils and liquid herb extracts.

Blissoma Refine Clay Renewal Treatment

It is no secret that I love facial masks, and this one definitely does not disappoint! It really works to deep clean my sensitive skin without causing it to dry out or become irritated. And it works amazingly well as an emergency spot treatment when a surprise pimple pops up! I think that this facial mask would probably work for all skin types, unless you have an allergy or sensitivity to one of the ingredients.

Blissoma Refine Clay Renewal Treatment

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Aqueous Infusion Of Foeniculum Vulgare* (Fennel) Fruit, Stellaria Media* (Chickweed) Leaf, Lavandula Angustifolia* (Lavender) Flower, Rosa Damascena* (Roses), Porphyra Umbilicalis* (Nori Seaweed), Ruscus Aculeatus* (Butcher’s Broom) Root, Rhassoul Clay, Apium Graveolens* (Celery) Juice, Cocos Nucifera* (Coconut) Oil, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Citrullus Lanatus* (Watermelon) Seed Oil, Zinc Oxide*, Squalane, Extracts Of Glycyrrhiza Glabra* (Licorice) Root, Symphytum Officinale* (Comfrey) Root/Leaf, And Salix Alba* (Willow) Bark, Populus Tremuloides (Aspen) Bark Extract, Gluconolactone, Cetearyl Alcohol And Cetearyl Glucoside, Extracts Of Olea Europaea* (Olive) Leaf, Echinacea Purpurea* Root, And Caldendula Officinalis* Flower, Essential Oils Of Litsea Cubeba Fruit, Commiphora Myrrha, Pelargonium Roseum (Rose Geranium), Citrus Reticulata (Mandarin) Peel, Lavandula Angustifolia, Pogostemon Cablin (Patchouli), Coriandrum Sativum (Coriander) Seed, Cedrus Atlantica (Cedarwood), Grain Alcohol*+, Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract*, Helianthus Annuus* (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Xanthan Gum

EiR NYC Active Face Wash Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Active Face wash from EiR NYC that came in my April Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from Petit Vour]

EiR NYC Active Face Wash

Made with an ancient recipe of African black soap, this face wash is an epidermal skin revival system that exfoliates, minimizes scarring, and brings breakouts to a screeching halt. Also, a great solution to stubborn zinc sun protection on the face.

I have to say that this cleanser is the most unappealing looking facial wash that I’ve ever used – it looks like muddy water in the package. And when you shake it up, it comes out as a dirty looking foam.

 

 

But don’t let that stop you from trying out this face wash because it is ALL KINDS OF AWESOME! It is gentle on my sensitive skin, and makes my face feel deeply cleansed without being drying. And despite how it looks, it has the most wonderful scent (without being over-scented or perfumey) likely due to the combination of lavender, ylang ylang, geranium, sage and cammomile essential oils.

EiR NYC Active Face Wash

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Water, Shea Butter, Shea Tree Bark Ash, Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Pods Ash, Plantain Ash, Coconut Oil, Sustainable Palm Oil, Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Rose, Geranium, Sage, Chamomile Essential Oil Blend 

Have you tried this one?

Caley Cosmetics Beach Babe Natural Brows Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Caley Cosmetics Beach Babe Natural Bows, as well as comparison swatches with the other brow pencils and gels in my stash. [info in italics taken form Petit Vour]

Caley Cosmetics Beach Babe Natural Brows - Brunette

Perfect brows are an easy breeze with this ultra-fine natural brow pencil. Create any shape you wish with this easy to use defining pencil that mimics the look of natural hair. Transform fussy or shapeless brows with tamed precision by filling in sparse hairs and outlining the size and shape with perfect symmetry.

Caley Cosmetics Beach Babe Natural Brows - Brunette

This brow pencil is available in four different shades: blond (light ashy brown), auburn (rich brown with a red tint), brunette (medium brown with warm undertones) and dark (dark brown with cool undertones). I received the brunette shade.

Caley Cosmetics Beach Babe Natural Brows - Brunette

The pencil is soft and easy to apply, and wears well. However, the brunette shade seems really red toned on me compared with my usual brow pencils.

Caley Cosmetics Beach Babe Natural Brows - Brunette

As you can see in the comparison shots – from top to bottom: Caley Cosmetics Beach Babe Natural Brow in Brunette, Wet n Wild Ultimate Brow in Medium Brown, Anastasia Beverly Hills Perfect Brow Pencil in Dark Brown, and Eye of Horus Brow Define in Dynasty

Caley Cosmetics Beach Babe Natural Brows - Brunette

I think that the dark shade would have been a better match for me. I will use the Beach Babe Natural Brow pencil, but more than likely I will use it in conjunction with my darker toned pencils.

Ingredients: 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Jojoba Seed Oil, Castor Seed Oil, Abyssinian Seed Oil, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Candelilla Wax, Elderberry Extract, Watermelon Seed Oil, Papaya Seed Oil, Pineapple Fruit, Hibiscus Flower Extract, Rosemary Leaf Extract, Mango Extract, Jasmine Oil, [+/- Mica (77019), Titanium Dioxide (77891), Iron Oxide (77491, 77492, 77499), Tin Oxide (778161, 77499), Kaolin.

Petit Vour Unboxing + First Impressions April 2019

Hello, hello!

Petit Vour April 2019

My April Petit Vour box arrived yesterday, and I’ve managed to unbox and photograph it this morning. I often show my Petit Vour box on my InstaGram, but here on the blog you will get the unboxing AND first impressions. Full reviews to follow once I’ve had a chance to test things out.

Transform fussy or shapeless brows with tamed precision by filling in sparse hairs and outlining the size and shape with perfect symmetry.

Petit Vour April 2019

I tend use brow pencils more often than gels or powders, so hopefully the brunette shade that I received is a good colour match.

EiR NYC Active Face Wash $20 USD (full size)

Made with an ancient recipe of African black soap, this face wash is an epidermal skin revival system that exfoliates, minimizes scarring, and brings breakouts to a screeching halt. Also, a great solution to stubborn zinc sun protection on the face.

Petit Vour April 2019

This sounds like a great facial cleanser, I look forward to testing it out. The cleanser does not look appealing in the container, as it is muddy brown in colour.

The mask base is Rhassoul clay, mined from lava clay beds in Morocco.

The essential oil penetrates skin with an intoxicating aroma that you’ll look forward to every time you use this product.

I’m super excited to try this serum, especially since I just recently purchased the Brightening Gel Cleanser from Juice Beauty. This one sounds perfect for my skin type!

Petit Vour April 2019

Province Apothecary Full Brow Serum Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Full Brow Serum from Province Apothecary. I received it in a Petit Vour box back in December 2017. It sat unopened in my stash for ages. Now that I’ve finally gotten around to using it, I figured that I would finally review. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Province Apothecary Full Brow Serum 1

The Full Brow serum is specifically blended with powerful and active pure botanical extracts and anti-oxidants to help fortify hair and encourage fuller-looking brows. The nutritive blend of Organic Castor Seed Oil and Coffee Extract targets hair follicles, while Organic Rosemary Leaf has been used for centuries to improve hair luster and promote the appearance of richer brows. Use twice daily to achieve stronger, healthy looking eyebrows.

Province Apothecary Full Brow Serum

I’ve been using the Full Brow Serum for about 3 months, using it once a day instead of twice daily as I find that it doesn’t play nicely with my eyebrow pencil or brow gel. I manage to use it at least five nights a week, and sometimes every night of the week.

Consistency is key with a brow serum.

My brows are starting to come in a little thicker / fuller, but they are still much lighter in colour than my hair, so I still feel the need to use a brow pencil or gel to darken them up.

Province Apothecary Full Brow Serum

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Castor Seed Oil*, Argan Kernel Oil*, Jojoba Seed Oil* [infused with Coffee*, Burdock Root*, Calendula flower*, Horsetail*], Broccoli Seed Oil, Black Cumin Seed Oil, Vitamin E, Rosemary Leaf Extract + Oil*, Lavender*, Geranium Oil*, Bay Oil.  | *Certified Organic Ingredients.

K.Voss Bronzing Potion Glow Cream Review

K.Voss Bronzing Potion Glow Cream

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Bronzing Potion Glow Cream from K.Voss that came in my March Petit Vour box. I’ve seen this product on Instagram, and it looked super pretty. [info in italics taken from Petit Vour]

K.Voss Bronzing Potion Glow Cream

Instant luminosity, no filter needed. This sheer illuminating cream creates a natural looking, no makeup glow to all skin tones while moisturizing for a soft, radiant complexion. This ultra-hydrating cream creates a subtle luster and the formula flatters all skin types. Worn alone, over makeup, or as a highlighter, the lightweight bronzer delivers an instant glow to every complexion.

K.Voss Bronzing Potion Glow Cream

The Brnzing Potion can be used all over the face, or just to highlight areas of the face. I’ve been wearing this mixed into my Juice Beauty CC Cream  – it gives my skin a nice radiant glow, without being glittery or shimmery. Very natural looking, and non-greasy.

The swatches below from left to right: K.Voss Bronzing Potion Glow Cream, mix of K.Voss Bronzing Potion with Juice Beauty CC Cream, slightly rubbed in mix of K.Voss Bronzing Potion with Juice Beauty CC Cream. When applied normally (fully rubbed in), it is undetectable, and only appears as naturally glowy skin.

Little Barn Apothecary Honeysuckle + Grapefruit Body Oil Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Honeysuckle + Grapefruit Body Oil from Little Barn Apothecary that came in my March Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Little Barn Apothecary Honeysuckle + Grapefruit Body Oil

Luxurious daily moisturizer crafted with organic skin perfecting oils of sesame, jojoba, avocado and vitamin E for intense moisture and a glistening youthful glow. Formulated for all skin types, non-greasy formula quickly absorbs deep into skin providing vitamins and minerals. An indulgent journey through fields of white sun-drenched blossoms, lightly kissed by delicate pink citrus. Honeysuckle absolute and pink grapefruit essential oils blend to create this perfectly sensual aroma: sweet, mildly citrus, sun-drenched floral. 

Little Barn Apothecary  Honeysuckle + Grapefruit Body Oil

It is no secret that I absolutely love body oils. Especially if they are light and non-greasy while being super hydrating. I really love how this body oil soaks into the skin quickly and deeply hydrates without feeling greasy.

Little Barn Apothecary  Honeysuckle + Grapefruit Body Oil

I don’t love the scent, but I don’t hate it either – I’m just not a fan of honeysuckle, but the grapefruit notes makes it work. This body oil is available in other scents, so I’d be interested in checking some of them out eventually.

I love that the ingredient list is fairly short:

100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Prunus Dulcis (Almond) Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Absolute, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Essential Oil, Tocopherols (Vitamin E).
