Empties February 2020

Hello, hello!

Another month of empties – I’m making slow but steady progress at using up the products in my stash! Becuase I’m on a low buy, I’ll let you know if I plan to re-purchase eventually, and link to my original reviews. Let’s take a look!

Skincare Empties:

Empties February 2020

Lowen’s Natural Skincare Classic Lime Margarita Lip Balm and In Yo Face! Natural BB Cream – these were both from an amazing PR package from Lowen’s – I LOVED both the lip balm and the BB Cream so much! I have a stash of lip balms and facial moisturizers to use up but would replace. Reviews are here and here.

Leahlani Bless Balm – this was from my Petit Vour subscription. I used it both as a lip balm and as a cuticle balm. It was really awesome. I have a few more multi-purpose balms in my stash to use up, so no need to replace just yet. Review was here.

Sothys Paris / Sothys Canada Hydra Smoothing Mask, Energizing Serum, and nO2ctuelle Detox Resurfacing Overnight Cream – all three of these were PR samples. All are excellent high end, spa quality skincare products, that despite being more scented than my personal preference, all worked well for my sensitive skin. I still have a few more masks, serums and moisturizers / creams to use up, so I do not need to replace these right now. Reviews are here, here and here.

Haircare, Makeup and Essential Oil Empties:

Empties Feb 2020

Briogeo Curl Charisma Defining Crème – I bought this ages ago (almost 2 years!), and I finally finished it! I really like this curl cream a lot, but have a few more hair products to use up, so I won’t be replacing right now. Review is here.

Now Essential Oils Cheer Up Buttercup! – I bought this last year I think. And the mister liked it so much, that he bought a replacement for me! I never did review this essential oil, but it is such a bright, sunshine-y citrus scent.

Nyx Total Control Drop Foundation – I really like serum type foundations because they feel so light on the skin. I’m currently using one from Juice Beauty and one from Nyx, so I won’t be replacing right now. Review is here.

Have you finished up much this past month? I’m super close to finishing up a shampoo, a conditioner, and two facial moisturizers already this month.

Hello, hello!

Petit Vour November 2019

My November Petit Vour box finally arrived on November 27th. 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. [info in italics is taken from the Petit Vour website]

Petit Vour November 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 @1.3526 my box cost me $31.11 CAD this month.

Let’s take a closer look :

Joséphine Cosmetics Eye / Define Natural Waterproof Graphic Eyeliner (0.10 oz / 2 g – $26 USD)

Defining. Enhancing. Tenacious. A high definition, natural and vegan, waterproof liquid eyeliner that defines & creates bold, beautiful eyes.

This precious ink contains Shea Butter, Vegetable oils, Vitamin E & C to keep the skin conditioned without causing eye irritations. A precise felt tip applicator allows easy & effortless movement for a smooth application to achieve the ultimate cat eye.

I have several liquid liners in my stash, so it will take me awhile to get to testing this one out. I like that it is waterproof and a clean formula.

With the colder weather, this sounds like it will be perfect for my normal to dry, sensitive skin. Can’t wait to try this one out!

Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive Exfoliating Mask (sample size 0.5 oz $11 USD, full size 2 oz $48 USD)

Petit Vour November 2019

Reveal a brighter complexion with this potent alpha and beta hydroxy acid mask that delivers spa-grade exfoliation, while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as dark spots and discoloration, for optimum age-defying results.

designed for all skin types (except sensitive skin), 20’s and up and is effective for helping uneven skin tone and texture.

NOTE: The Juice Beauty GREEN APPLE® Brightening Collection is not designed for very sensitive or rosacea skin due to the alpha/beta hydroxy fruit acids.

I will have to do a patch test due to having sensitive skin. Peels make me nervous as I have reacted to them in the past.

Petit Vour November 2019
