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?

Unboxing and First Impressions Petit Vour March 2019

Hello, hello!

My March Petit Vour arrived on April 8th, it seems to be arriving later each month. 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 March 2019

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 @ 1.3678 my box cost me $31.46 CAD this month.

Let’s take a look at what was in the March Petit Vour box:

Petit Vour March 2019

 

K. Voss Bronzing Potion Glow Cream (sample size 10ml / 0.33 fl oz, $20 USD, full size 30 ml / 1.01 fl oz, $52 USD)

Petit Vour March 2019

Instant luminosity, no filter needed. This sheer illuminating cream creates a natural looking, no makeup glow to all skin tones while moisturizing for a soft, radiant complexion. This ultra-hydrating cream creates a subtle luster and the formula flatters all skin types. Worn alone, over makeup, or as a highlighter, the lightweight bronzer delivers an instant glow to every complexion.

I had one of the K.Voss Plumping Lip Balms and loved it, so I was super excited to try something else from this brand. I’ve seen the Bronzing Potion on InstaGram, and it looked really pretty.

Kahina Giving Beauty Oil Cleanser (sample size 0.37 oz / 11ml, $10 USD full size 3.3 oz / 100 ml, $59 USD)

Petit Vour March 2019

Dissolve makeup, sunscreen and bacteria with this nourishing oil cleanser that leaves skin clean and soft without residue. Super hydrating, antioxidant rich plant oils combine with healing and anti-inflammatory Calendula, Turmeric, and Blue Tansy to calm and detoxify skin. Luxuriate in the scent of a blend of all natural neroli and geranium essential oils.

This unique Oil Cleanser is water soluble and can be removed with just water.  No washcloth required. Ideal for dry, sensitive, and acne prone skin.

This oil cleanser sounds perfect for my sensitive skin, I’ll start using it as soon as I do a skin patch test.

Little Barn Apothecary Honeysuckle + Grapefruit Body Oil (sample size 1.5 oz / 44ml $14 USD, full size 4oz / 118ml, $50 USD)

Petit Vour March 2019

Luxurious daily moisturizer crafted with organic skin perfecting oils of sesame, jojoba, avocado and vitamin E for intense moisture and a glistening youthful glow. Formulated for all skin types, non-greasy formula quickly absorbs deep into skin providing vitamins and minerals. An indulgent journey through fields of white sun-drenched blossoms, lightly kissed by delicate pink citrus. Honeysuckle absolute and pink grapefruit essential oils blend to create this perfectly sensual aroma: sweet, mildly citrus, sun-drenched floral. 

I do like body oils, hopefully I will like the scent!

Andalou Naturals Citrus Sunflower Uplifting Shower Gel (sample size 1.7 fl oz, $2 USD, full size 8.5 fl oz, $10 USD)

Petit Vour March 2019

This skin conditioning gel blends emollient rich rosehip and argan oils with coconut water and gentle cleansing botanicals for fresh, healthy looking skin. 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!

This month, Petit Vour included a bonus for all their subscribers – a fan favourite from either Juice Beauty or Evolvh!

Petit Vour March 2019

I received the Juice Beauty Green Apple Cleansing Bar (Sample size 1.2 oz / 34g $3 USD) – I’ve gotten this one before in a Petit Vour box back in June 2018, and really liked it, the review is here.

Petit Vour March 2019
