Highborn Défumé Annointing Oil Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Highborn Défumé Annointing Oil that came in my December Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Highborn Défumé Annointing Oil

This Ritual Rollerball will cleanse and clear your energetic space, focus the mind for meditation or prayer, and prepare yourself for ritual. DÉFUMÉ pays true homage to palo santo while embodying a dynamic fragrance profile. Application is beautiful (externally) anywhere on your body, this fragrance is known to transport. Boasting organic essential oils that are sustainably sourced and extracted, reiki charged crystals and high vibes – DÉFUMÉ will help deepen your self care regimen. Fragrance is unisex. 

Highborn Défumé Annointing Oil

The first thing that went through my mind when I saw this was to ask myself if this was a perfume or an essential oil (or both). The scent is very subtle – lightly smoky and woody. I would use this before a meditative yoga practice,  than to use it as a perfume as I don’t find that the scent lasts on me. I find that nearly all coconut oil based perfumes oils don’t have any longevity on me.

Highborn Défumé Annointing Oil

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Organic Fractionated Coconut Oil, A Proprietary Blend of Wild Crafted + Organic Essential Oils, Reiki Charged Quartz + Black Tourmaline.

Kani Botanicals Lip + Cheek Tint Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Kani Botanicals Lip + Cheek Tint that came in my December Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Kani Botanicals Lip + Cheek Balm- Duchess

Created with nourishing organic ingredients, this unique formula combines hydration and protection with rich mineral colors for a beautiful, natural finish on both lips and cheeks. 

Kani Botanicals Lip + Cheek Balm- Duchess

The Lip + Cheek Tint is available in three shades – Duchess, Siren, and Vamp. I received the shade Duchess – a pretty cool toned pink shade. Because I’m quite fair, I have to apply sparingly on my cheeks, but it makes a pretty flush.

As a lip balm, it feels nice on the lips, and is a very natural, very slight pink tint on my lips (which are already pink toned). I love products that are multi-purpose, so this would be great for travel. I will probably use this as a lip balm more often than as a blush.

Kani Botanicals Lip + Cheek Balm- Duchess

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | *Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, *Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Coconut Oil), *Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, *Oriza Sativa (Rice Bran) Wax, *Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Kaolinite (Rose Clay), *Tapioca Starch, *Rosmarinus officials (Rosemary) Extract, Tocopherol (non-GMO Vitamin E), Rose Oil, *Gaultheria Procumbens (Wintergreen) Leaf Oil. | *Certified Organic

Lavido Aromatic Body Lotion Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Lavido Aromatic Body Lotion that came in my November Petit Vour box. This is the second product from Lavido that I’ve gotten from my subscription. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Lavido Aromatic Body Lotion

This rich but lightweight body lotion leaves your skin buttery soft and restored with organic essential oils. Best for all skin types.

I was afraid that this body lotion was going to be strongly scented, but thankfully it is not. It is mildly citrus, with a hint of something floral / herbal underneath (probably the bergamot). The body lotion is nicely hydrating but not at all greasy. I especially like to use it as a hand cream – the sample sized tube is perfect to take in my bag, or leave next to my computer.
