Kani Botanicals Lip + Cheek Tint Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Kani Botanicals Lip + Cheek Tint that came in my December Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Kani Botanicals Lip + Cheek Balm- Duchess

Created with nourishing organic ingredients, this unique formula combines hydration and protection with rich mineral colors for a beautiful, natural finish on both lips and cheeks. 

Kani Botanicals Lip + Cheek Balm- Duchess

The Lip + Cheek Tint is available in three shades – Duchess, Siren, and Vamp. I received the shade Duchess – a pretty cool toned pink shade. Because I’m quite fair, I have to apply sparingly on my cheeks, but it makes a pretty flush.

As a lip balm, it feels nice on the lips, and is a very natural, very slight pink tint on my lips (which are already pink toned). I love products that are multi-purpose, so this would be great for travel. I will probably use this as a lip balm more often than as a blush.

Kani Botanicals Lip + Cheek Balm- Duchess

Petit Vour December 2019

Kani Botanicals Lip + Cheek Tint (full size $28 USD)

Created with nourishing organic ingredients, this unique formula combines hydration and protection with rich mineral colors for a beautiful, natural finish on both lips and cheeks. 

Petit Vour December 2019

This lip and cheek tint is available in three colours – I received the shade Duchess – which is pink toned. I do love multi-purpose products, so hopefully the colour will work for me.

Bali Balm Natural Lip Balm (full size $26 USD)

Clean, crisp and citrusy fresh, this creamy lip balm gets its alluring aroma from the essential oils of bergamot and grapefruit. Bergamot oil is known to have both calming and uplifting effects, while the grapefruit acts as a purifying agent.

Petit Vour December 2019

The Bali Balm is available in three different scents / flavours, I received Bergamot & Grapefruit. The packaging of this lip balm is so luxe! I am always happy to receive a lip balm to add to my collection!

5th Dimension Sub Rose Serum (sample size 7 ml, $9 USD, full size 30 ml $38 USD)

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.

Petit Vour December 2019

This sounds like an amazing serum. I’ll have to stash it for now as I have a few serums in rotation at the moment.

Highborn Défumé Anointing Oil (sample size 2 ml, $7 USD, full size 10 ml $35 USD)

This Ritual Rollerball will cleanse and clear your energetic space, focus the mind for meditation or prayer, and prepare yourself for ritual. DÉFUMÉ pays true homage to palo santo while embodying a dynamic fragrance profile. Application is beautiful (externally) anywhere on your body, this fragrance is known to transport. Boasting organic essential oils that are sustainably sourced and extracted, reiki charged crystals and high vibes – DÉFUMÉ will help deepen your self care regimen.

Petit Vour December 2019

Sounds interesting, might be good to try before yoga.

My Highlighter Stash

Hello, hello!

Since the Holiday Season is rapidly approaching, I thought I’d share my highlighter collection with you all, since the Holiday’s are a great time to sparkle and shine!

I’ll be showing you my highlighter stash and linking to the original reviews.

Highlighter Stash - Nyx, Essence and Kani Beauty

Nyx Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder in Lavender Steel – I’d recently re-discovered this highlighter in my stash. Because it is so cool toned it is perfect for this time of year! Review is here.

Essence Bloom Me Up Shimmer Powder in Rose It Up – This is an oldie in my collection. If I don’t start to use it more, I’m going to de-stash it. I used to use it daily but as I added more highlighters to my collection, I kind of forgot about it. Review is here.

Nyx Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator in Gleam – Another forgotten gem in my stash. This is over two years old and will be de-stashed as I don’t like to keep liquid formulations around for a long time. Review is here.

Kani Botanicals Prismatic Highlighter in Rose Quartz – this is the newest highlighter in my collection, it came in my October Petit Vour Box, very icy in tone, perfect for winter! Review is here.

Highlighter Stash - ColourPop, Soap + Glory, Nomad, Maison Jacynthe

ColorPop SuperShock Cheeks in Stole The Show – Another one of my favourite highlighters, so wearable! Review is here.

Soap and Glory Glow All Out Cheek Stick in Ice Shimmer – I won this in a giveaway back in December 2016, this is starting to dry out, so I will de-stash it. Review is here.

Nomad Illuminating Highlighter in Midnight Sun – I never did a full review fo this one, but it is very similar in tone to the Maison Jacynthe one. It is super small, so great for travel! First impressions here.

Maison Jacynthe Illuminator in Sparkling Sun* – This is one of my favourite highlighters, it can be worn for a subtle glow, or for a full on glow effect. I probably use this one the most! Review is here.

Highlighter Stash - Mica Beauty, ColourPop

Mica Beauty Highlighting Powder in #3 – This one is super golden. I don’t use it often as a highlighter because it is so intense, but I do like to use it as an eye shadow! First impressions is here.

ColourPop SuperShock Cheeks in Butterfly Beach – I can use this one as either a highlighter or as a bronzer depending on how much I use / how much I blend it out. I tend to use this one more in the summer, as I’m super pale in the winter so it takes a lot of blending to make it work for me this time of year. Review is here.

Do you have any of these highlighters? What is your fave highlighter?

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!

Kani Botanicals Rose Quartz Prismatic HIghlighter

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Prismatic Highlighter from Kani Botanicals that came in my October Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Kani Botanicals Rose Quartz Prismatic HIghlighter

A lightweight, glowy highlighter balm that leaves a natural, radiant glow. Formulated with nourishing ingredients, it creates a subtle, radiant sheen.

The Prismatic Highlighter is available in two shades, Rose Quartz (a cool toned pink) and Moonstone (light gold). I received the shade Rose Quartz.

This highlighter is great if you love more natural looking, glowy highlights. It is not super glittery, and it blends out really well. I’ve been using it a lot as an inner corner highlight, as well as a cheekbone highlight. The swatch below is without any blending:

Petit Vour Unboxing & First Impressions October 2018

Petit Vour October 2018

Hello, hello!

My October Petit Vour box arrived last week, but since I already had blog posts scheduled, it had to wait until today. If you follow me on InstaGram, you will have seen my unboxing. Here on the blog, you will get the unboxing AND my 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 October 2018

Petit Vour is a cruelty-free and vegan monthly subscription box with four (occasionally five) products. Petit Vour October 2018

The subscription is $18 USD a month in the U.S., $23 USD for Canada, and $25 USD for the rest of the world. With the exchange rate (@ 1.326) my box cost me $30.50 CAD this month.

Petit Vour October 2018

Let’s take a closer look inside to see what I got this month:

Goldfaden MD Bright Eyes sample size $18 USD, full size 0.5 oz / 15 ml $55 USD

Petit Vour October 2018

Dr. Goldfaden’s advanced, ultra-light brightening eye cream reduces the appearance of under eye darkness, puffiness, and fine lines for a more luminous and youthful glow. Soy Peptide, Rice Bran Extract, Organic Red Tea, and Arnica work together to deliver de-puffing and brightening properties while ensuring the eye area has a luminous and youthful-looking appearance. Perfect for all skin types.

  • Visibly brightens eye area
  • Reduces the appearance of under eye puffiness and fatigue
  • May minimize the appearance of unwanted lines

My eyes prone to dark circles and puffiness due to seasonal allergies and occasional insomnia so anything that claims to help, I’m willing to try once I do a patch test.

When I went to do my patch test, I found that the pump was defective and no product came out no matter how much I pressed the pump. Thankfully the Petit Vour Customer Service is really awesome, and they’re sending me a replacement. The review might be a little delayed as it probably won’t arrive for at least a week or so.

Kani Botanicals Prismatic Highlighter Balm full size $28

Petit Vour October 2018

A lightweight, glowy highlighter balm that leaves a natural, radiant glow. Formulated with nourishing ingredients, it creates a subtle, radiant sheen. 

I received the shade Rose Quartz (cool pink), it is also available in Moonstone (light gold). This looks really pretty, and not at all glittery. I can’t wait to try this out.

MAI Couture Bamboo Charcoal Blotting Paper full size $10 for 60 sheets

Petit Vour October 2018

Help absorb skin impurities and toxins with Mai Couture’s Bamboo Charcoal Blotting Papier. Effective at drawing out pollutants, bamboo charcoal absorbs bacteria, toxins, and micro-particles from the skin.

I haven’t owned blotting paper in a long time, but these ones sound great. I’ll probably keep them in my work bag for on the go touch-ups.

Formulary 55 Rosehip & Clay Facial Mask full size $8 for 0.75 oz package

Petit Vour October 2018

Detoxify and soften naturally with this gentle pink clay facial mask. This blend will draw out toxins without over drying the skin. Suitable for all skin types.

I love facial masks, and I plan on trying this out on the weekend if my patch test is ok. The joys of sensitive skin – but better safe than sorry!

Petit Vour October 2018

Overall I think that the October box was good – I’m most excited by the eye cream and the highlighting balm. Reviews to follow once I’ve had a chance to test everything out!

Total value of this month’s box – $64 USD / $84.86 CAD!

Kani Botanicals Moon Milk Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Moon Milk Shimmering Body Oil from Kani Botanicals that came in my October Petit Vour subscription box [info in italics is taken from the Petit Vour website].

Kani Moon Milk

This silky and lightweight oil illuminates with shimmers of gold to complement every complexion. Infused with a bouquet of natural and organic ingredients, this beauty oil protects and moisturizes dry skin leaving you radiantly glowing. It’s captivating scent wraps a bouquet of jasmine blossom and velvety tuberose.

Kani Moon Milk

Jasmine scents are not usually a favourite of mine. It is probably my second most hated scent. That being said, for some reason I actually like the scent of this body oil. I guess that the Tuberose somehow makes the jasmine work for my nose.

Kani Moon Milk

This is a nice body oil, it absorbs quickly into the skin and isn’t greasy feeling, and it smells lovely, but it is too glittery for my liking. Kani Moon Milk

I will use it up though, because I love the scent and how it feels on my skin so I’ll probably have glittery legs this winter, haha!

Kani Moon Milk

October Petit Vour Unboxing + First Impressions

Hello, hello!

When I signed up for a Petit Vour subscription, I had thought that I would not be getting my first box until November, so getting the October box was a nice surprise! (info in italics is taken from the Petit Vour website)

Petit Vour October 2017

Elevate or recreate your beauty routine with a subscription to Petit Vour’s luxury-curated, cruelty-free beauty box. Each month you’ll receive 4 products ($45-$60 value) of non-toxic and plant-based beauty, curated to your beauty profile.

There were five products in this month’s box, and according to the info sheet, this month’s box is worth $47 USD. Let’s take a look at what is inside:

Petit Vour October 2017

It comes with an informational card that lists the cost of both the sample and full sized versions of the products, as well as a product description and instructions for use.

Petit Vour October 2017

Kani Botanicals Moon Milk – I was nervous when I read the description since I really do not like most jasmine based scents, but the combination with the  tuberose somehow works for me. It is quite glittery looking, but I’ll at least try it out. If it ends up being too glittery on my skin, I’ll use it as a scented hair oil.

Petit Vour October 2017

Shamanuti Pumpkin Enzyme Masque – I was super happy to see a facial mask in this box as I’m down to the last bit of my Incredible Pumpkin Peel Mask from MyChelle Dermaceuticals. It smells great, so I can wait to test it out!

Petit Vour October 2017

Petit Vour October 2017

Poetic Blend Ghost Oil – I love facial oils, and with the recent change to colder weather, I will be putting this and several other facial oils to the test! It has no real scent (yay!) and in quickly swatching it on my hand, it absorbed quickly and didn’t leave a greasy residue, so I have high hopes for this one!

Petit Vour October 2017

Mai Couture Highlighter Paper – I don’t really get the purpose of this other than for travelling light. I doubt that this is something that I would ever purchase, but I’ll try it out.

Petit Vour October 2017

Plant Apothecary “Get Happy” Organic Body Wash – This shower gel smells amazing, it will be great to use on sluggish mornings as the geranium and peppermint scent is super upifting! It smells similar to the Wildcraft Buff Face and Body Scrub that I love.

Petit Vour October 2017

Full reviews to follow once I’ve had a chance to try test things out!

Petit Vour October 2017

What do you think? I like knowing that all of the products are cruelty free. And as an added plus, they are also vegan!
