What’s up, everybody! As I’ve been getting more into the cosplay and beauty communities I’ve seen so many talented artists. And I’m inspired. I’m fairly new to the world of beauty and makeup. To help get me started I’ll be trying different vegan and cruelty-free boxes to learn about new products. I’ll be going on a “Beauty Journey” and sharing any helpful products and tidbits I can along the way.
The first box I’ll be reviewing is Petit Vour. At $18 a month ($23 for Canada and $25 Worldwide), this box is definitely budget-friendly. They describe themselves as “Crème de la Cruelty-Free” and they mean it. Petit Vour is a completely cruelty-free, vegan, and non-toxic company; not to mention they sell clothes and other accessories too! Petit Vour has two subscriptions on their site. I got the “Beauty Box”. Each box comes with four items (valued at over $50 total). As you open it you’re greeted with the words “Be Bold. Be Kind. Be You” and a card detailing the items and their price.
Active Face Wash, EiR NYC – $20 USD
This African black soap foaming cleanser is designed to help with a myriad of skin concerns; including breakouts and scarring. I was excited to try this product as I have had success with African black soap before. After a week of use I have noticed my skin tone evening out a bit, but nothing too drastic. While some areas of my face feel a little dry after use, this face wash did help get rid of a pimple trying to make a home on my chin; so I’ve seen the breakout busting in action.
Update: After getting about half-way through the bottle, this cleanser doesn’t foam for me anymore. Also, there may be a little separation in the product. Just give it a little shake and it’ll mix in again.
Organic Eyeliner, Fior Minerals – $18 USD
Good news everyone! If you’re gluten-free, soy-free, or have sensitive skin this eyeliner is perfect for you. Mine came in Brown Sugar and matches my skin tone exactly, so I can’t see it on my eyes. However, it does make a great lip liner too! When warm, this liner glides on pretty smooth, but if not you’ll notice a little drag. Store at room temp and draw a couple of lines to heat it up before use. One cool thing about this eyeliner is that you don’t have to sharpen it. When it’s running low just twist the bottom and new product will appear.
Update: I was incorrect about being able to twist the tube to produce more liner. That means the tip it comes with is it, and that’s not a lot.
Roll-On Perfume in Sultry, Inkling Scents – $15 USD
This is probably my favorite item in the box. Sultry is the best name for this perfume because that’s really how it smells. This creamy, warm perfume is a great date night scent. Inkling Scents rolls on smooth and evenly. The earthy, floral fragrance is deep and rich, but not overpowering.
Sea Mineral Foot Soak, Formulary – $7 USD
This “fizzling foot soak” didn’t actually fizz for me, but one whiff and I was relaxed. Not only that, but my feet felt so soft after removing them from the water. This sample size only came with enough for one use, but it was enough to have me wanting more. If you’ve got a job where you’re on your feet a lot, this foot soak will make your life better.
Overall I really enjoyed the Petit Vour Beauty Box. It’s a great deal on some high-quality vegan beauty products, which can be hard to find. I also love the personality and positivity that Petit Vour brings to each box. If you’re in the market to try some vegan products, definitely check out Petit Vour! Don’t forget to check out the unboxing video here to learn more about these products.
Next month I’ll be reviewing Petit Vour‘s PV Plus Beauty Box filled with fan favorites. If you’d like to watch the unboxing video for more info, I’ve put it down below; or you can click here. See you later, Squares!
