Vegan Street Reviews the November Petit Vour Beauty Box
by Marla Rose
So, yay, we are now receiving Petit Vour Beauty Boxes
for review. For someone like me who loves vegan body care products and
cosmetics but hates shopping, Petit Vour is right up my alley. The fact
that the award-winning Petit Vour boxes feature small, independent
companies with a commitment to sustainability practices and clean
ingredient lists makes it all the better.
Here’s how it works: Subscribers will receive four beauty or personal
care products, ranging from generous samples to full-sized items, in
each pretty pink box that I am sure I will look forward to each month.
Having only gotten one box so far, it’s hard for me to know exactly
what to expect, but it had two items I’d consider makeup (more on
everything below), one skincare item and one cleanser. At just $15
U.S., $23 for Canadian subscribers, or $25 elsewhere, you will get a
new box each month featuring carefully curated items you wouldn’t find
in a regular store; you can subscribe for a year or monthly (or three
or six-month plans) and you can also purchase as gifts. The Petit Vour
online shop also sells a variety of quality vegan and eco personal care
products and cosmetics and, with their generous rewards program, subscribers really have an incentive to buy here.
Here was what I found in my November box and my reviews. All but the
body scrub was a generous sample; the scrub was full-sized.
Elate Cosmetics Universal Crème:
The shade sent to me was Love, a pretty and subtle soft pink that is
kind of bubblegum colored but very light on the skin. A cream rouge, it
will leave your skin feeling and looking dewy but will not create a
heavy blush look. For those wanting to explore a less-is-more natural
day look, Elate may be perfect. Works great on the lips, too, with
lemongrass essential oil.
W3LL People Realist Invisible Setting Powder (sample):
This was probably my favorite item in the box and the one I will
certainly order again when it runs out. Mineral powder keeps this
setting powder light but effective, creating a matte look without all
the drying tendencies of pressed powder or the messiness of loose. The
translucent powder is so weightless, it blends right in, creating a
polished look. Made with arrowroot and aloe, this setting powder will
minimize the appearance of pores while allowing your skin to breathe.
We Love Eyes Tea Tree Eyelid and Eyelash Makeup Remover Oil:
Great stuff! The We Love Eyes product gently but effectively removes
eye makeup without a greasy residue or irritating eyes. Only a few
drops on a cotton ball is all you need to cleanse each eye. I love that
I didn’t feel like an oil slick afterwards.
Ellovi Body Scrub:
Designed as a skin scrub or a bath soak, this new product is thick and
dense, available in five scents, and leaves your skin feeling
refreshed. Mine came in the Original scent, which I cannot discern much
from aside from the mango butter and French clay, so what it lacks in a
memorable scent, it makes up for in not being cloying. This is so thick
you only need a little bit for exfoliation and, as with the eye makeup
remover, leaves no greasy residue.
I love the Petit Vour Beauty Box itself as well as the concept. A nice
treat to look forward to each month, the box isn’t too indulgent from a
cost perspective and allows you to try a bunch of great, new items
without a big commitment. Kind of like your cool vegan big sister
letting you in on some of her best kept secrets, the Petit Vour Beauty
Box will give you the access to some fantastic cruelty-free, clean and
sustainable products that most of the world doesn’t know about yet. I
highly recommend the Petit Vour Beauty Box; wonderful as a gift for a friend, a loved one or for your own very deserving self, you won’t be disappointed in it.
Vegan Street received this product for free to review and this was my honest evaluation.
