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.

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.

Province Apothecary Full Brow Serum Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Full Brow Serum from Province Apothecary. I received it in a Petit Vour box back in December 2017. It sat unopened in my stash for ages. Now that I’ve finally gotten around to using it, I figured that I would finally review. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Province Apothecary Full Brow Serum 1

The Full Brow serum is specifically blended with powerful and active pure botanical extracts and anti-oxidants to help fortify hair and encourage fuller-looking brows. The nutritive blend of Organic Castor Seed Oil and Coffee Extract targets hair follicles, while Organic Rosemary Leaf has been used for centuries to improve hair luster and promote the appearance of richer brows. Use twice daily to achieve stronger, healthy looking eyebrows.

Province Apothecary Full Brow Serum

I’ve been using the Full Brow Serum for about 3 months, using it once a day instead of twice daily as I find that it doesn’t play nicely with my eyebrow pencil or brow gel. I manage to use it at least five nights a week, and sometimes every night of the week.

Consistency is key with a brow serum.

My brows are starting to come in a little thicker / fuller, but they are still much lighter in colour than my hair, so I still feel the need to use a brow pencil or gel to darken them up.

Province Apothecary Full Brow Serum

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Castor Seed Oil*, Argan Kernel Oil*, Jojoba Seed Oil* [infused with Coffee*, Burdock Root*, Calendula flower*, Horsetail*], Broccoli Seed Oil, Black Cumin Seed Oil, Vitamin E, Rosemary Leaf Extract + Oil*, Lavender*, Geranium Oil*, Bay Oil.  | *Certified Organic Ingredients.

Have you used a brow serum?

Petit Vour Unboxing December 2017

Hello, hello!

Today I have my unboxing and first impressions for December’s Petit Vour box. It arrived last week and I’ve finally had a chance to photograph everything.

Petit Vour December 2017

The monthly Canadian subscription costs $23 USD – with the exchange rate that I paid in December, that works out to be $30 CAD. Let’s take a closer look at what was inside.

Petit Vour Dec3

Province Apothecary Full Brow Serum – I’ve never used a brow serum before, and have skimpy brows, so I’ll definitely be trying this one out! It is also the first product that I will have tried from Province Apothecary. This will probably be several months worth of brow serum since you only use 1 to 2 drops per use. Review to follow once I’ve tested it out for a few weeks.

Petit Vour December 2017

Odacité Synergie [4] Immediate Skin Perfecting Beauty Masque – This facial mask powder sounds interesting as it is a multi-tasker – detox, peel, brighten and firm. I’m going to do a patch test before using it on my face. I do love facial masks, so I’m happy with this one. Review to follow.

Petit Vour December 2017

Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Ultra-Natural Mascara – I haven’t tried a natural mascara before, but I’m looking forward to trying it out. Hopefully the claims of no smudging, flaking or clumping hold true. I’m also hoping that it will hold a curl. Review to follow!

Petit Vour December 2017

True Moringa Lip Whip in Truth – I love lip balms, so I’m always happy to get one. Another new to me brand. Review upcoming!

Petit Vour December 2017

Ursa Major Golden Hour Recovery Cream – I love skincare products, and after the deep freeze that we’ve been going through, I could use all the hydration! Another brand that I’ve wanted to try for quite awhile! Review to follow once I’ve tested it out!

Total value of this month’s box is $54 USD – which at the exchange rate that I paid works out to be $70.43 CAD! I love that all of the products in the Petit Vour box are cruelty free AND they are also all vegan.

Disclosure: I pay for this monthly subscription. And my opinion is very much always my own!
