Empties August 2019

August 2019 Empties - Bath & Body - Lavido, Alba Botanica, Andalou Naturals

Hello, hello!

Can you believe that August is already finished? It feels like the summer has gone by so quickly! I’ve managed to finish up a few more products from my stash this month – not as many as I had hoped to finish, but progress is progress.

I’ll include links to my original reviews as well as a comment on whether or not I will eventually purchase a replacement.

Let’s take a look – Bath and Body:

August 2019 Empties - Bath & Body - Lavido, Alba Botanica, Andalou Naturals

Lavido Thera Intensive Foot Cream – this was a Petit Vour subscription sample. I liked it a lot, but the scent made the Mister sneeze every time I used it, so I probably won’t purchase a full size. Review is here.

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Body Oil – This might be my second bottle of this body oil. I love it, and will buy it again eventually once I finish up a few other body products. Review is here.

Andalou Naturals Kukui Cocoa Nourishing Body Butter – Another Petit Vour sample. I liked this one a lot, but I think I prefer the rose scented one more. Review is here.

Haircare:

Empties August 2019 - Hair Care - Kristin Ess, Wise Men's Care

Kristin Ess Sea Salt Air Dry Spray – I used this wave spray a lot since I purchased it last summer, it worked amazingly well for my wavy hair. I’m currently testing out another wave spray, so I don’t need to repurchase this one right now, but I probably would get this again eventually. Review is here.

Wise Men’s Care Simple & Natural Men’s Shampoo / Birch Bark Daily Shampoo – This was part of a PR package. I loved the scent of this shampoo, it is very woodsy, and gentle on the scalp. I still have the travel size of this shampoo to finish up, and a few other shampoos in my stash to use up, so no need to purchase a replacement at this time. Review is here.

Skincare:

Empties August 2019 - Skincare - Lowen's, Goldfaden MD

Lowen’s Get Toned! Vegan Facial Toner – This was from a PR package. I kept this spray toner in my fridge, and used it whenever I needed a spritz of refreshing hydration. I have at least one or two toners in my stash to finish, so I don’t need to purchase a replacement (but I would like to eventually). Review is here.

Goldfaden MD Detox Hydrating Gel – Another Petit Vour subscription sample. I liked to wear this light gel moisturizer under sunscreen. I have so many moisturizers / creams in my stash to use up, that I really cannot purchase a replacement. Review is here.

Lowen’s Bee Local Lip Balm – This is from the same PR package as the toner. I’m a lip balm addict, so you know that I loved this! I still have two more lip balms to finish (and the Mister claimed the third one), so I don’t need to replace just yet, but I would like to before winter. Review of some of the Lowen’s lip balms is here.

Makeup:

Empties August 2019 - Makeup - Essence, Nyx

Essence I ❤ Colour Intensifying Eyeshadow Base – I had this for way too long (shamefully – since 2016), so I am decluttering it. I’ve recently gotten another shadow base / primer in a recent Petit Vour box. I’d buy this again, it works great and is super affordable. Review is here.

Nyx Tinted Brow Mascara – Another one that I had for way to long! i really liked this brow mascara and will probably buy it again eventually. I’m currently using and loving the Essence Make Me Brow, so no need to replace right now. Review is here.

Did you finish up very much this month?

Lavido Thera Intensive Foot Cream Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Thera Intensive Foot Cream from Lavido that came in my May Petit Vour box. [info in italic taken from the Petit Vour website]

Lavido Thera Intensive Foot Cream

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.

Lavido Thera Intensive Foot Cream

This is a super hydrating foot cream, with a glycerin base. The scent is mild and herbal, not over scented – which I like.

It is long wearing, hours after I applied it to my feet, they still felt soft. I can’t really comment on how it works with chafed skin, but I can imagine that it would work well just by how this foot cream feels on the skin (and by looking at all of the skin friendly ingredients listed below).

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!
