Petit Vour Unboxing & First Impressions December 2018

Petit Vour December 2018

Hello, hello!

With the holidays, my Petit Vour box didn’t arrive until New Year’s Eve. If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen my unboxing, but 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 December 2018

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 (@ 1.3600) my box cost me $31.28 CAD this month.

Petit Vour December 2018

Let’s take a look at what was in the December Petit Vour box.

Petit Vour December 2018

Han Skin Care Cosmetics Concealer, full size $18 USD

Petit Vour December 2018

This creamy and nourishing concealer improves uneven skin tone, conceals dark circles, reduces redness, and lifts signs of fatigue while benefiting the skin with argan oil, shea butter, green tea and Vitamin E.

  • Lightweight and buildable medium to full coverage
  • Improves uneven skin tone
  • Crease-proof and budge-proof
  • Long-wearing formula

I received the shade Fair (with pink undertones). I was running low on one of my concealers, so this is perfect timing!

True Moringa Rejuvenating Body Polish, sample size (1 oz) $8.50 USD, full size (4 oz) $34 USD

Petit Vour December 2018

Wake up your shower routine and revive dry and dull skin with a blissful aromatic blend of Nicaraguan coffee beans, organic sugar, cold-pressed moringa and a sweet and spicy essential oil blend.   

Fresh Nicaraguan coffee beans, rich in caffeine, firm and tighten skin and gently exfoliate to invite the healthy production of new skin cells.

Moringa is rich in zeatin, known for stimulating cell division, growth, and delaying aging of cells. Moringa is packed with crucial fatty acids and antioxidants that the fight free radicals that cause premature aging.

This smells really nice, and I do love body scrubs so I’m looking forward to testing this out – although my preference is for sugar or salt based scrubs.

Goldfaden MD Brightening Elixir, sample size $18 USD (7ml / 0.23oz), full size $80 USD (30ml / 1oz)

Petit Vour December 2018

Dr. Goldfaden’s advanced brightening and antioxidant serum helps aid against the appearance of photoaging and free radical damage, while leaving skin feeling hydrated and looking radiant.

  • Works to boost skin moisture and calm appearance
  • Increases radiance and improves appearance of skin color and tone
  • Minimizes the appearance of fine lines

I love serums, so I’m happy about getting a new one to try out! This one sounds great!

Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Soothing Body Lotion, sample size (50ml / 1.7oz) $2 USD, full size (236ml / 8oz) $14 USD

Petit Vour December 2018

This ultimate skin food blends emollient rich rosehip and argan oils with shea and cocoa butters to nourish, smooth, and soften the appearance of dry skin. Soothing rosewater delights the senses as superfruit antioxidants and ultra-hydrating aloe vera help protect and uplift skin’s moisture barrier for a luxurious, all-over body treatment.

This is my second body lotion / butter from Andalou Naturals – the last one was in my September box! Luckily I love body lotions, and this time I got a rose scented one. Can’t wait to try this!

Petit Vour December 2018

Overall, this month’s box is worth $46.50 USD – which works out to $63.24 CAD. As well, I received the replacement for my defective Goldfaden MD Bright Eyes Eye Cream from the October box. They sent me two of them – possibly to make up for it taking so long to replace.

True Moringa Lip Whip Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Lip Whip from True Moringa in the shade Truth that came in my December Petit Vour subscription box. [info in italic taken from the Petit Vour website]

True Moringa Lip Whip

Who says clean beauty can’t be glamorous? Introducing True Moringa’s series of naturally colored and flavored lip whips for a lasting hint of color, shimmer and moisture to protect lips year-round.

ANTI AGING  Moringa is rich in zeatin, known for stimulating cell division, growth, and delaying aging of cells. Moringa is packed with crucial fatty acids and antioxidants that the fight free radicals that cause premature aging.

INTENSE HYDRATION + PROTECTION  The unique blend of luxurious cocoa butter and moringa penetrate deeply into the skin and replenish essential animo acids and nutrients.  

IDEAL FOR DRY LIPS Rejuvenate and heal scaly or cracked lips and replenish moisture with daily use.

True Moringa Lip Whip

The Lip Whips are available in three different shades: Truth (pink yarrow cocoa), Mystery (burgundy Anise) and Moonlight (white gold peppermint).

True Moringa Lip Whip

As you all know, I’m a lip balm addict, so I was happy to see a tinted lip balm in the December box. I currently don’t have any other tinted lip balms in my stash right now.

It is a really pretty glossy balm, but without the stickiness of a lip gloss. I find it to be super hydrating, and the hint of tint is really pretty. I find myself using it a lot these days, as my lips have been dry from the winter weather.

Although the description says that it is naturally flavoured, I really cannot taste anything. Or for that matter, it does not seem to have any scent whatsoever, which I find surprising as I would expect it to smell like cocoa butter.

True Moringa is cruelty free brand (all Petit Vour brands are cruelty free).

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

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!
