Petit Vour – Cruelty-Free Beauty Box – January
January 29, 2019
I’ve had my eye on Petit Vour for some time now and just hadn’t pulled the trigger – probably due to my skepticism around subscription boxes. For Christmas this year, a friend gifted me a 3-month subscription and I was beyond ecstatic to finally see what all the fuss was about and get my hands on some gorgeous, cruelty-free beauty/skincare products!
Before I dive into the products from the January box, I want to delve into my experience with Petit Vour thus far and what sets them apart from all other subscription box companies. (Also, they were so wonderful to give me a discount code to share with you all so that you may get your own at 25% off! Use code SIMPLYSAFFY25 at checkout!) Petit Vour specializes in cruelty-free beauty and lifestyle products. Every piece has been carefully vetted by experts and is free of animal testing. ingredients, and harmful toxins. I’ve recently been looking into what goes into the products I put ON my body, not just IN my body. Focusing on clean, natural, vegan-friendly and sustainable skincare has been a focus lately, so the timing of this subscription box couldn’t be better. Whilst most subscription boxes charge upwards of $50/month, Petit Vour’s is as low as $15/month.
What I particularly love about the box is that it comes with 1 full-size product and smaller sample sizes of the other products. Such a brilliant way to try new items without the big investment. Ethical and sustainable products (across all industries) have a stigma for being more expensive than those you can find in a drugstore or supermarket. The Petit Vour beauty box is the perfect way to be introduced to new brands without emptying out your wallet.
Now, onto the contents of the January box!
Pacifica Beauty – Mascara
Admittedly, I’ve used the same mascara for over a decade. Every time I try a new brand, I’m disappointed. The brush is wrong, it doesn’t apply nicely, etc. After trying this Pacifica mascara I was quite pleased! Whilst it applies lighter than my normal mascara, it’s perfect for day-to-day use and more can be applied right on top for a heavier, thicker effect!
Le Prunier – Plum Beauty Oil
I’ve used a few different beauty oils – mainly at nighttime before bed. However, I’ve been using this Le Prunier plum oil during the day, under my makeup, and find that I have a wonderful glow throughout the day! The only thing I’m not a fan of is the smell: marzipan. I’m probably just traumatized from my childhood in the UK having to make (& eat!) Christmas marzipan figurines and now I cannot stand the smell. Just a personal preference, though! If you love almonds, then you’ll probably love this oil through and through!
Kaia Naturals – The Underarm Bar
Perhaps controversially, I don’t currently use natural deodorant. Without getting into the topic too much in this post, I’ve dug into research and have yet to find a strong argument for it. Now, with that being said, I’m all for as natural as possible of a product to put on my body. All the horror stories of natural deodorant include the smell from not using antiperspirants. Well, I think I just found the solution: the Kaia Naturals underarm bar. As I said, even though I don’t currently use a natural deodorant, I’ve been using this bar every shower for the past week to get a feel for how it works. Have you ever accidentally touched your deodorant with your finger and struggle to wash it off with warm water and soap? It almost leaves a film on you. I find that the underarm bar does the same thing but in a good way! It feels like a clean, protective barrier that helps prevent any embarrassing smells! Quite chuffed that this was included in my first Petit Vour beauty box as this is an area I’ve been exploring as of late.
Box Naturals – Cleansing Towelettes
And, finally, the Box Naturals towelettes (cucumber + witch hazel & lavender) are so wonderfully fresh to use! I currently use Trader Joe’s micellar water wipes after my workouts (before that sweat dries!) and feel that these would be a perfect replacement!
Petit Vour is the perfect way to experience cruelty-free products at a fraction of the cost of experimenting on your own. I’ve absolutely loved my January pieces and am itching for February’s to arrive already!
If you haven’t already checked out their site, I’d definitely recommend it! Remember, you can use SIMPLYSAFFY25 to get 25% off your first box! Even if you don’t want to commit to a subscription yet, they have an amazing collection of products to browse if you dare try new products on your own! Either way, Petit Vour is my new destination for vetted, clean, natural, and vegan beauty products!
