Empties July 2019

Empties July 2019

Hello, hello!

Today I have my monthly empties for you with links to the original reviews, and whether or not I plan to purchase / re-purchase right away or eventually.

Skincare:

Empties July 2019 - Skincare - EiR NYC, The Ordinary, Blissona, BKind, Kahina Giving Beauty

EiR NYC Active Face Wash – This was a Petit Vour box sample. Quite possibly the most unappealing looking foaming face wash, but I really LOVED this one for washing off my sunscreen and makeup at the end of hot and humid days. Definitely going on my wishlist! Original review is here.

The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG – This is the last product in my mini project pan for serums. You only need the smallest amount for your undereye, so this one took forever to finish up. I really like it, but want to try out something new. Original review is here.

Blissoma Refine Clay Renewal Treatment – Another Petit Vour sample. This was such an awesome mask, I’d love to own a full size. I have several masks to use up, so onto the wishlist it goes. Original review is here.

BKind Sensitive Skin Face Scrub – Yet another Petit Vour sample, a great exfoliating and moisturizing scrub, super gentle. I have other scrubs to finish up but I would purchase a full size of this one. Review is here.

Kahina Giving Beauty Oil Cleanser – Another Petit Vour sample. I loved this oil cleanser, so very gentle and effective. I’m still working my through my cleanser stash, so you guessed it, onto the wishlist it goes. Review is here.

Makeup:

Empties July 2019 - Makeup - Covergirl, Essence, Suntegrity

Covergirl Exhibitionist Waterproof Mascara – I liked this mascara a lot. I won’t be repurchasing this one because there are others from Covergirl that I’d like to try. Review is here.

Essence Volume Hero Waterproof Mascara – Similarly, I liked this mascara quite a bit as well, but I won’t be repurchasing this one but there are others from Essence that I’d like to try. Review is here.

Suntegrity Impeccable Skin Moisturizing Face Sunscreen Tinted SPF 30 – Another Petit Vour sample. This was slightly too light for me recently, but I started adding in the KVoss Bronzing Potion Glow Cream and not only did it make the shade perfect for me, it added radiance and made the finish less matte / less drying on my skin. Review is here.

Empties July 2019

Overall, I’m happy that I’m making steady progress at using up the products in my stash. Did you finish up much this month?

BKind Sensitive Skin Face Scrub Review

BKind Face Scrub Sensitive Skin

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Sensitive Skin Face Scrub from BKind, a Montreal company. This scrub came in my May Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

BKind Face Scrub Sensitive Skin

The cranberry seeds and hibiscus face scrub has been created for your skin to be softly exfoliated and hugely moisturized at the same time.  Perfect for sensitive or dry skin: this face scrub will leave your skin smooth, glowing and moisturized. 

BKind Face Scrub Sensitive Skin

This is a super gentle facial scrub, the exfoliating bits are very fine and do not irritate my sensitive skin. The base of this scrub is very hydrating as well. My skin feels so smooth and soft after using – I really like this one!

Petit Vour Unboxing & First Impressions May 2019

Hello, hello!

My May Petit Vour box finally arrived, 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. [all info in italics is taken from the Petit Vour website]

Petit Vour May2019

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 @ 1.3830 my box cost me $31.81 CAD this month.

Petit Vour May2019

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

Suntegrity Impeccable Skin Moisturizing Face Sunscreen Tinted SPF 30 (sample size 0.25oz $7 USD, full size 2oz $55 USD)

Petit Vour May2019

Beauty boosting skincare, sunscreen and makeup all in one! This medium coverage formula gives skin a flawless, smooth, more youthful appearance. Formulated without oils or silicones, this vitamin and peptide rich technology, visibly reduces the signs of aging while non-nano zinc oxide and melanin provide Broad Spectrum SPF 30 and blue light protection to help prevent any future damage.

This is available in five shades: 01 Ivory, 02 Buff, 03 Sand, 04 Tan, and 05 Bronze. I received Ivory. In the summer, I tend to wear very little makeup, and when I do, it is more likely to be either a tinted sunscreen, or a BB Cream with SPF – so I look forward to trying this one out.

Osea Atmosphere Protection Cream (full size 2oz $48 USD)

Petit Vour May2019

A lightweight moisturizer that protects skin from dehydration and damage from environmental aggressors. The super emollient algae base ensures instantaneous absorption while the advanced blend of dermal proteins increases elasticity and leaves a matte, silky finish. An amazing, invisible base for makeup application. For Whom: Normal, Dry, Combo + Sensitive Skin. The natural emollient properties of seaweed give this cream a uniquely light and silky texture. Vitamin E strengthens collagen and increases elasticity.

This moisturizer sounds great – lightweight and hydrating. Can’t wait to start testing it out! This is a full size product. I like that it can also be used as a primer.

BKind Sensitive Skin Face Scrub (sample size  15g $9 USD, full size 48g $25 USD)

Petit Vour May2019

The cranberry seeds and hibiscus face scrub has been created for your skin to be softly exfoliated and hugely moisturized at the same time. 

Perfect for sensitive or dry skin: this face scrub will leave your skin smooth, glowing and moisturized. 

A scrub for sensitive skin, hello! Can’t wait to try this one out! And, they’re Montreal based.

Lavido Thera Intensive Foot Cream (sample size 30ml $7 USD, full size $28 USD)

Petit Vour May2019

This ultra hydrating foot cream is formulated with the aromatic Achillea plant and purifying oils like distilled myrtle and Organic Tea Tree. Serves to moisturize and repair chafed skin as well as purify and prevent foot odor. Leaves skin soft, supple and energized.

Since the weather is hopefully finally warming up, I’ll be living in sandals, so a good foot cream is always a useful product!

Petit Vour May2019

Total value of this month’s box is $71 USD which works out to be $98.19 CAD. I’m super happy with this month’s box!
