April’s Petit Vour Beauty Box

Hi folks and welcome to this blog post, unboxing and trying out the contents of my Petit Vour Beauty Box!

I’ve been subscribed to this completely Cruelty Free and Vegan beauty box service for 3 months now. Their strapline is the “Creme de la Cruelty-Free” and I’d so far have to agree, as February and March’s boxes were simply outstanding. So shall we have a look what came in April’s box?

First up we have the Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Last Looks Cream Blush, in the full size, which is worth $25 dollars (the price of the entire box including shipping for international customers). I received the colour Flush, which is a nude beige shade.

At first I was a bit unsure of this shade, as it’s not something I’d normally be drawn to, but when I pop it onto my cheeks it literally looks like a natural healthy flush! It’s almost a bit sun-kissed as well, though thankfully with no shimmer, which is lovely for me because I have a hard time finding a bronzer shade that suits me. The pigment is lovely but not too much, and it’s buildable. I think a lot of people would enjoy this shade. They also do Orange Blossom, a bright coral, Peony, a raspberry pink, and Seashell, a bright pink. I’d normally go for the pinks but I own a baby pink and berry pink cream blushes already, so I’m really thinking of going outside my comfort zone again and trying Orange Blossom. And based on the blendable formula of this blush, as well as the decent wear time and ease of use, I would be happy to try other products from Juice Beauty (this is the first thing I’ve owned from them, even though they are available in the UK.)

The second full size product in this box is the Niu Body Pina Colada Lip Polish, worth $10. I wasn’t in the market for a new Lip Scrub, since the Lush ones I usually buy last me for months. It’s a huge jar and the flavour is appealing, but the texture is different than I am used to, it’s sticky and greasy like a thick lip gloss, as opposed to oily and scrubby. I think this might be due to some of the ingredients. I will have to look into the ingredients further as I think some might be mineral oil derived, which I don’t love to put on my mouth. Lush gets a battering on ingredients but the lip scrubs are one of their more natural products. I’ll get back to you on this Niu Lip Polish.

In the box we also have a decent sized sample of the Suntegrity Vanish Organic Cleansing Oil, worth $8 (full size $32). Suntegrity make sunscreen skincare products and this oil claims to remove sunscreen without damaging skin’s barrier. I’m pretty sure any well formulated oil cleanser will remove sunscreen safely, however this oil is all natural, organic and the ingredients all do look lovely. Upon first try, it is a very nice cleansing oil, but a bit stingy near to the eyes because of sweet orange oil. I will use this up, probably for travel, but I won’t be parted from my Blue Labelle Cleansing Oil.

The final thing in the box is a sample of the Andalou Naturals Goji Peptide Perfecting Face Cream worth $3.29 (full size $25). This is supposed to be for dry/very dry skin, so I’m glad I didn’t get a full size of this as I have combo to oily skin. The ingredients look OK, though if you prefer to skip ethylhexylglycerin and phenoxyethanol you may want to pass on this. I prefer these preservatives to parabens in my skincare and there are also no silicones here. Despite being for dry to very dry skin, the cream is rich but not greasy or heavy. It’s actually surprisingly light and absorbs beautifully. My skin feels lovely after using it. I looked to see if Andalou Naturals is available in the UK and it is stocked online at Holland & Barrett. This might be a line I need to look into.

So to sum up, here’s what I think of this month’s box. I’m really glad I got it, because I wouldn’t have found the Juice Beauty Cream Blush without it, and this was a pleasing introduction to Juice Beauty. The box was $25 dollars for me, and is worth $46.29, which is fantastic, however I’m not sure I will use the lip polish.

This doesn’t put me off continuing to purchase this subscription… like I said the last two boxes were brilliant and no beauty box can please everyone all of the time! I’m still happy I switched to Petit Vour, as I’m getting to try brands I haven’t tried or can’t easily get in the UK, which is very exciting.

Do you get the Petit Vour box? What did you think of this month’s products?
