I had gone on a business trip recently hence the delayed unboxing review of petit vour this month. I’m yet to receive my June box, as soon as i get my hands on it, it is going to be up my blog.
For all newbies, Petitvour is a beauty box monthly subscription service. They are completely vegan and cruelty-free. It is a nice way to try out new samples or brands and decide to invest on products you like. If you are interested do check the out (here). In no particular order i’m going to delve in. In the May box, there were 4 products 1 makeup and 3 skincare items.
LAUREN B BEAUTY – Cuticle Oil:
A product that i have never tried, cuticle oil. This product is apparently made from 12 different botanical oils safflower, almond, avocado, sunflower, olive, lavender, ylang ylang, rosemary, castor, soybean oil and few more. It helps to nourish your finger nails from within by hydrating your cuticles. It has a dropper sort of applicator, you need to apply a drop on each finger cuticle, let it sit for a minute then massage into the cuticles. I just tried this on my nails, before starting to write this post, now when i look down at my nails there is this natural healthy looking glow to it. I was skeptical at first, but after i tried just on the first time, I see a difference. I can really feel my cuticles hydrated and nourished. Additionally it also has a nice pleasant scent and a calming mood. I’m loving the feeling it gives, like an after meditation relaxation 🙂 . Now i’m curious to try more of such cuticle oils.
ZABANA ESSENTIALS – Face mask + scrub:
Banana and oatmeal sounds delicious, especially in a face mask hehe 😀 . This is a 2 in 1 product, you apply on the face let it sit for 10-15 mins then wash with exfoliation motion. This would remove all the impurities and gunks from the skin. A very similar product would be the Derma-E purifying 2-in-1 charcoal mask , which is one my favorite skincare for a deep cleanse. This mask would be best for dry skin, as it helps to repair, sooth, hydrate and rejuvenate the skin also to provide a smooth glowing complexion. These kind of sachets are best during travel, after a long flight would be great for getting back the moisture.
AU NATURALE – Color corrector:
I was pretty excited when i saw this but the excitement died pretty quickly after i swatched it on my skin. As you can see this is too light for my skin tone and is literally white in color but the shade i received was ‘PEACH‘. I mean where is the peach, i also see that it was settling into the skin cracks. I’m not sure how to make this work for me, maybe it would do as a cream highlighter? We’ll see. So this cream corrector has some nourishing oils in it like macadamia, jojoba and lavender also shea butter as ingredients. This makes it super creamy and hydrating. It is quite easy to apply and bend. I will try to use this below my regular concealer and see if it would work and provide you guys an update.
EIR NYC – Body oil:
A body oil made specially for the after sun exposure, hence the name ‘SUNSET OIL‘. You can also use this as a regular body oil for hydration after shower or for a massage. It helps to sooth sun burn and damage caused by exposure to sun, wind and salt. This is the perfect item to carry for beach destinations. It has essential oils and vitamins needed for a parched skin. It is made from a mixture of olive, almond, coconut, jojoba, aloe vera, vitamin-e oils and chamomile extract. All the ingredients are organic, that is an awesome addition. Another travel friendly product for the beach bums 🙂 .
Hope you enjoyed the box as much as i did and had a good read. See you all soon.
