    and promote hair growth            
  • Proprietary blend of natural oils moisturizes,
    strengthens and adds shine

Rahua Classic Shampoo & Conditioner

This is a really nice shampoo, I love the woody scent. It doesn’t lather super well – but thats to be expected with a lot of sulfate free shampoos. It is hydrating but not heavy, and makes my hair feel clean and soft.

An enriching and luxurious complement to the Rahua® Classic Shampoo, this award-winning Conditioner delivers lustrous, rich and ultra-hydrated hair. Omega-9-rich Rahua oil acts as a detangler and exotic extracts maintain strong hair and a healthy scalp. Can also be used as a lightweight styling cream to smooth, tame frizz and flyaways, and add hold.

Rahua Classic Shampoo & Conditioner

I really like how this conditioner makes my hair feel. It really does work as a detangler, I can comb out my hair so much easier after washing and conditioning my hair.

Speak 09 Deodorant Cream Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the 09 Deodorant Cream from Speak. It came in my February Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Speak 09 Deodorant Cream

A gentle, yet effective natural deodorant with a creamy texture that glides on to give you satin-soft protection. An aluminium and baking soda-free formulation that’s great for sensitive skin. Features arrowroot powder, kaolin clay and magnesium as odor neutralizers and excess sweat moppers. A combination of butters and oils keeps the delicate underarm area soft and healthy. Lightly scented with lavender essential oil to keep you smelling fresh.

Speak 09 Deodorant Cream

If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you’ll know that I’ve made the switch to natural deodorant a few years ago, and have had various degrees of success using natural deodorants. Some work amazingly well, some are just ok, and some are not a good match for my body chemistry.

Speak 09 Deodorant Cream

I’ve had better luck using deodorants with baking soda in them as they tend to last longer for me, but because I have sensitive skin, I sometimes react to the baking soda. To reduce the chances of a reaction occurring, I tend to use a baking soda free deodorant on days that I’m working from home to give my skin a break.

Speak 09 Deodorant Cream

I was pleasantly surprised to find that this natural deodorant works really well and it holds up all day! And it keeps my underarms a lot drier than most baking soda free formulas. My only complaint is that it doesn’t smell like lavender to me at all! It doesn’t really smell like anything.

Update March 19th – The Mister has started trying this deodorant out and he said that it works amazing for him even though he finds the cream application to be weird! He has a job where he is moving about (and sweating a lot) and so far, he has not been smelly when he gets home from work!

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Maranta Arundinacea (Arrowroot) Root Powder, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Magnesium Hydroxide, Kaolin, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil

My February Petit Vour box finally arrived on February 28th. 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. [info in italics is taken from the Petit Vour website]

Petit Vour February 2020

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 US, $23 USD for Canada, and $25 USD for the rest of the world. With the exchange rate @1.3586 my box cost me $31.25 CAD this month.

Petit Vour February 2020

Let’s take a closer look:

Goldfaden MD Vital Boost Hydrating Moisturizer – sample size 0.5oz / 15ml , $20 USD, full size 1.7oz / 50ml, $68 USD

Petit Vour February 2020

More than just a daily moisturizer, Dr. Goldfaden’s Vital Boost delivers hydration, antioxidant nourishment and a brightening glow to all skin types.

This moisturizer may improve suppleness and the appearance of skin color and tone while promoting a more youthful-looking complexion. Brightening skin agent, Gooseberry Extract, leaves skin looking dewy, radiant and flawless. 

 

My moisturizer stash is getting low, so this came at the perfect time! I’ve really liked everything I’ve tried from Goldfaden MD, so I’m sure that this will be awesome!

KVoss Lip Treatment – full size 7ml / 0.24oz $17 USD

Petit Vour February 2020

The perfect mix of a lip balm and a lip gloss, this one-of-a-kind lip treatment contains a luxurious and intensely reparative formula that works on contact to soften roughness, relieve discomfort and help rejuvenate seriously dry lips.

Speak 09 Deodorant Cream – 1oz / 30g $12 USD

Hopefully this will work well for me. Natural deodorants with baking soda tend to work better for me, but sometimes irritate my skin, so having a baking soda free one will give my skin a break. I’ll let you know if this one works for me.

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Joséphine Cosmetics Eye / Define Natural Waterproof Graphic Eyeliner – this came in my November 2019 Petit Vour box, and I’ve finally gotten around to testing it out! [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Joséphine Cosmetics Eye / Define Natural Waterproof Graphic Liner

Defining. Enhancing. Tenacious. A high definition, natural and vegan, waterproof liquid eyeliner that defines & creates bold, beautiful eyes.

Highly-pigmented and completely waterproof, Eye/Define is a smooth & smudge proof formula – even in the most humid of conditions. This precious ink contains Shea Butter, Vegetable oils, Vitamin E & C to keep the skin conditioned without causing eye irritations. A precise felt tip applicator allows easy & effortless movement for a smooth application to achieve the ultimate cat eye.

Joséphine Cosmetics Eye / Define Natural Waterproof Graphic Liner

This eyeliner is available in six shades on the Petit Vour website – I have the shade Jolie Black which is a deep, dark, black, with a felt pen tip. It was fairly easy to apply, even though I’m super out of practice at doing a winged liner. I love that it is waterproof and it doesn’t budge once it dries. I’m going to try to do a winged liner more often!

Aether Beauty Amethyst Single Shadow Review

Aether Beauty Amethyst Single Shadow

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing a Single Shadow from Aether Beauty that came in my January Petit Vour box. I’ve been eyeing their palettes for awhile now, so I was super excited to find a single shadow to try out in my subscription box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Aether Beauty Amethyst Single Shadow

The perfect day to night romantic shades. Customize your palette with these go-to single eyeshadows. 

Formulated with organic coconut oil and organic shea butter, it creates a smooth, buttery texture for one swipe application. Infused with organic rosehip oil which provides radiant looking, glowing skin.

 

Aether Beauty Amethyst Single Shadow

The single shadow is available on the Petit Vour website in two shades: Amethyst, a purple gray metallic infused with amethyst, and  Solar Eclipse, a peach metallic, infused with topaz. I received the shade Amethyst.

Aether Beauty Amethyst Single Shadow

It is a super wearable shade – on me it tends to pull more purple taupe than purple gray which I really like. The texture is super smooth and buttery, and it is highly pigmented. I’ve swatched it both with and without primer (the primer is not a good shade for my eyelids, but it works great for swatching). This shadow is so difficult to photograph – I tried photographing it from different angles to try to capture how truly beautiful it is!

Aether Beauty Amethyst6

I don’t buy eyeshadow very often, because I already own quite a lot, but I really think that I want to get either the Rose Quartz or the Solstice palette.

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Mica*, Ethylhexyl Stearate, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate*, Zinc Stearate*, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate*, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Rosa (Rose Hip) Canina Seed Oil**, Silica*, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil***, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter*** Tin Oxide, (Rose) Quartz*, Alumina* May Contain: Bronze Powder*, Titanium Dioxide, Manganese Violet, Iron Oxides, Ultramarines*, Bismuth Oxychloride | *Certified Organic Ingredients, Natural Derived, Fair Trade.

5th Dimension Sub Rosa Serum Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the 5th Dimension Sub Rosa Serum that came in my December Petit Vour subscription box. I finally got around to testing it out in mid-January! [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

5th Dimension Sub Rosa Serum

Sub Rosa is a blend of highly concentrated antioxidant and omega fatty acid oils infused with rose petals to refresh and replenish skin’s complexion.  Non-comedogenic, this face oil requires just a few drops to hydrate, soften, regulate oil production, and soothe inflammation.

5th Dimension Sub Rosa Serum

  • Rose – used topically, rose promotes cell regeneration, astringent and regulates oil production, all while balancing skin’s PH to create a healthier skin biome. Rose promotes self love and protection.
  • Hemp Seed Oil – omega fatty acids, linoleic acid and oleic acid minimize visible damage due to free radicals. This nutrient dense oil regulates sebum production, making it ideal for all skin types. Its anti-inflammatory properties soothe redness and irritation.
  • Rosehip Seed Oil – highly concentrated with omega fatty acids & antioxidants to repair and protect skin against visible damage.

5th Dimension Sub Rosa Serum

I especially like to add a few drops of this serum / oil into my moisturizer for an added boost of hydration. It is gentle, soothing and feels lightweight on the skin – not greasy or heavy.

I love that it has minimal ingredients. I can see this working for all skin types – unless you have an allergy or sensitivity to one of the ingredients. The scent is very mild and herbal – I can smell the hemp seed oil, clary sage and frankincense but not the rose.

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan|Hemp Seed (Cannabis sativa) Oil*, Rose* (Rosa sp.), Rosehip (Rosa canina) Seed Oil*, Essential Oils of Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea), Frankincense (Boswellia sp.) | *Certified Organic
