My nails grow fast, but some of my nails have weak spots, so I was pleased to see this Nail Serum in the hopes that it would help strengthen them.

Just before I started using this serum, I cracked the nail on my middle finger really badly at a weak spot in my nail straight down the center – OUCH! I’ve been using this Nail Growth Serum twice a day for over two weeks now, and I can say that my nails are definitely stronger!

Petit Vour September 2019

Let’s take a closer look at what was in this month’s Petit Vour box:

Petit Vour September 2019

Jane Iredale LipDrink Lip Balm SPF 15 (0.14 oz / 4 g – $17 USD)

Quench your lips with hydrating protection that will leave lips feeling moisturized, protected and refreshingly scented. Mouthwatering moisture in a lip-saving, lemon flavor balm. Broad spectrum SPF 15 sunscreen. A variety of waxes and oils combine to provide an antioxidant-rich protective shield.

Petit Vour September 2019

As a lip balm addict, I am always happy to see a lip balm, especially one with SPF added!

The Seaweed Bath Co Awaken Firming Detox Body Cream (sample size 1.5 oz – $4 USD, full size 6 oz – $15 USD)

The Firming Detox Cream deeply moisturizes and detoxifies for smoother, firmer-looking skin. Organic, sustainably-harvested bladderwrack seaweed with 65+ vitamins and minerals naturally detoxifies and promotes skin elasticity. Antioxidant-rich green coffee bean extract helps to detoxify and protect the skin against damaging free radicals. Detoxifying green tea extract, rich in potent antioxidants, protects and moisturizes. Hyaluronic acid locks in moisture while strengthening the skin’s natural barrier. Best to minimize the appearance of cellulite and improve skin appearance. 

Petit Vour September 2019

This sounds great! I can’t wait to try it out! Seaweed is such a great skin / body care ingredient.

Moon Rivers Naturals Peppermint Lava Salt Hand + Body Soap (sample size $5 USD, full size 8 oz – $18)

For those deathly afraid of a used bar of soap, Moon Rivers Naturals uses the classic oil combination in their bar soaps liquified. They are enhanced with black lava salt and a pinch of activated charcoal for a light detox, and peppermint essential oil to calm your soul and leave your skin with a nice tingle. This soap is great for face and hands too!  

Petit Vour September 2019

This sounds nice! I love peppermint in body wash / soap – it is so energizing in the mornings.

Lauren B. Beauty Nail Growth Serum (full size 0.08 oz – $75 USD)

Salvation for fragile, brittle nails that refuse to grow. This sheer blend of amino acids, antioxidants, Vitamins E and C, peptides and biotin sinks in instantly to boost natural nail growth and strength. 

Petit Vour September 2019

Wow, a full size nail growth serum! My nails could use some strengthening, so this will be well used.

Petit Vour September 2019

The September box is worth $101 USD and with the exchange rate that I paid at $1.3682, that works out to be $138.19 CAD – I think that this is the highest valued box since I first subscribed around 2 years ago!
