K.Voss Shine-On Stick

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Shine-On Stick from K.Voss that came in my October Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

K Voss Shine On Stick Metallic Sunset

A buildable and blendable cream highlighter stick with an iridescent finish that glides on easily for on-the-go glow.

The creamy formula of this one of a kind product can be used alone or under other highlighters for a more intense effect. Its iridescent shimmer finish adds dimension and a pearlescent glow to the skin that leaves a gorgeously subtle shine with one swipe while delivering lit-from-within luminosity for a marvelous no-makeup makeup look. 

K Voss Shine On Stick Metallic Sunset

The main ingredient, Cupuaçu butter, comes from the Rain Forest and is known for its uniquely rich content of phytosterols which benefit dry and damaged skin. It combats free radicals in the tissue, and fatty acids to protect and moisturize, delivering a true healing and restructuring benefits as it improves the skin’s moisture barrier with ultra hydration for improved elasticity. 

K Voss Shine On Stick Metallic Sunset

This highlighter stick is available in two shades – metallic sunrise and sparkling rose. I received metallic sunrise. Because I’m quite pale, I can use this as a blush or as a highlighter – it all depend on how much I apply and how much I blend it out. The below is swatched without blending so you can see how intense the colour can be.

Worn alone, over makeup, or as a highlighter, the lightweight bronzer delivers an instant glow to every complexion.

Uplifting citrus sunflower delights the senses as superfruit antioxidants and ultra-hydrating aloe vera help protect and uplift skin’s moisture barrier for an invigorating, all-over body treatment.

Andalou Naturals makes great bath and body products, so I’m pretty sure that this will be great!

K Voss Cinnamon Lip Plumper Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Cinnamon Lip Plumper from K Voss that came in my January Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from Petit Vour]

Petit Vour January 2018

This lip balm contains a luxurious and intensely reparative formula that works on contact to soften roughness, relieve discomfort and help rejuvenate seriously dry lips. A potent concentration of Coconut Oil and Almond Oil renew the delicate lip area while strengthening lips’ moisture barrier to help prevent further damage. 

K Voss Cinnamon Lip Plumper

The plumping feature comes from the wonderful time-tested bark of the tropical evergreen tree; cinnamon. Cinnamon is a spice originating from Sri Lanka that has been used for thousands of years for health and beauty. It is anti-fungal and anti-bacterial and stimulates blood circulation. For this reason it makes an excellent all-natural alternative as a lip plumper!

K Voss2

As a lip balm addict I was very happy to try this one out. I find that a lot of lip plumpers are drying on the lips, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect.

K Voss Cinnamon Lip Plumper

This lip balm is super moisturizing, and smells and tastes like cinnamon hearts candy. The plumping tingle is a little intense at first, but it gives the lips a just kissed flush.

It has minimal ingredients – which I love:

100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Coconut Oil, Almond Oil, Olive Oil, Soy Wax, Cassia (Cinnamon) Oil.

K Voss Cinnamon Lip Plumper

I absolutely love this plumping lip balm. I’d like to try more from K Voss.

Do you like plumping lip balms, or is the tingle too much for you?

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

Petit Vour January 2018 Unboxing

Hello, hello!

My January Petit Vour Box finally arrived this week, let’s take a look inside!

Petit Vour January 2018

Just a reminder, that the box is $23 USD per box for Canada (it is $18 USD per month for the US, and $25 USD per month for all other countries). I’m using the exchange rate that I paid this month’s box in calculating the overall value – I paid $29.60 CAD for the January box.

Petit Vour January 2018

Andalou Naturals Brighten & Tighten Hydro Serum Facial Mask with Vitamin C – My skin seems to do really well with vitamin C, so I’m looking forward to trying this shhet mask out.

Petit Vour January 2018

Aromatherapy Associates Hydrating Revitalising Face Oil – In the previous month’s box, I received a bath and shower oil from Aromatherapy Associates and really loved it, so I’m really looking forward to testing out this facial oil. It is a blend that includes Frankincense, borage and rose (all three things that I love).

Petit Vour January 2018

We Love Eyes Tea Tree Eyelid & Eyelash Foaming Cleanser – This sounds really great, but tea tree oil is an ingredient that often irritates my skin, so I’m going to give this to someone who is not sensitive to this as I don’t want to risk a reaction.

Petit Vour January 2018

K Voss Cinnamon Lip Plumper – A lip balm AND plumper all in one. As a lip balm addict who also loves the tingle feeling of lip plumpers, I am so excited about this one!

Petit Vour January 2018

Total value of this month’s box $58.20 USD ($74.89 CAD)! Even though I’ll be giving away the eye wash, I think that I got my money’s worth this month! Reviews to follow once I’ve had a chance to try things out.
