I know we are in the first of February but as many things came in late this month we are still hitting the last of the January Unboxings. As it is February, this particular box is not currently available any longer, but it is more or less a usual box from Petit Vour so hopefully if you are trying to decide if this box is for you or not seeing what was in my January 2021 Petit Vour box will help you make your decisions.
Petit Vour is a $18 per month Beauty box that only sends Cruelty Free items. I really like the fact that many of the items are ones I would never have found on my own. Some of them have become standards in my beauty routine while others I try, but decide aren’t for me. For me this box is definitely one of discovery for me. There are four items in it each month and while they do lean towards skin and body care, they often have makeup items, which I appreciate.
The first item out of my box this month was in fact a beauty item. It is the Bronzing Potion Glow Cream from KVoss and it retails for $20. I believe it is a full sized item. I like the fact that it is a product that can be worn on a no makeup day to enhance the skin. I don’t know how well that will work for me, but I am willing to give it a try. I have a highlighter from Kvoss that I currently enjoy using so hopefully this will work out for me as well. I’m not huge on glowy skin but, I do love moisturizing products so this could be an interesting product to work with.
The second item out of the box was right up my alley and it was the Sultry Perfume from Inkling Scents. It retails for $15 and contains 5 ml worth of product which is more than enough for me to get a feel for the scent during a week-long trial.
I’ve never heard of Inkling Scents so it is a new to me company as well as a new perfume. The product is a roller ball as well which is nice. I was worried when I saw the small tube that it would be just an open bottle, but it is not so all is well. I love trying out new perfumes and very much look forward to trying this one out.
The next item was from a brand that we have received in previous Petit Vour Boxes. The brand is Andalou Naturals and I currently have a body wash and a hand lotion from them in my line up of products to be used. This is an Apricot Cleansing Milk (value $3). It is a facial cleanser. I am happy to give it a go. I generally find that cleansers are items that I tend to go through pretty fast and that aren’t all that common in beauty boxes so having another one is not a bad thing. I will certainly add it to the line up I have from the brand and give it a go.
And finally we have an interesting item called Oil + Water Balancing Calming Ritual from Evanhealy. (retail $10). I’ll admit, it took me a moment to figure out how to open the box. It slides open instead of being opened from the top. The serum is in a spray bottle and the oil is separate. According to the info card you combine the two in your hand and then apply it to your face.
So it is a two part product. I can see that either being fantastic or an absolute mess. But it will be fun to try. As always with skin care, I will leave it sealed until I am ready to use it so that it doesn’t start degrading. All skin care has a timer that starts ticking once it is open and I would hate for it to expire before I get to use it. So for now it is sealed and soon it will be put to use. For now I slid the box closed and left the items in it so that the serum and the oil don’t get separated.
Overall this was an interesting mix of products that I rather enjoyed receiving from Petit Vour. I love that they are all cruelty free items. This month there were two beauty items and two skin care items which makes me really happy to see and quite frankly I can’t wait to test these products out. I really like the Petit Vour Box as a way to discover new products. I’ll be honest most of these I have never heard of. Although I did almost pick up the Andalou Apricot Cleansing milk a few weeks ago when I was looking at cleansers. It was very reasonably priced and came in a nice pump that looked easy to use in the mornings. I was looking up details about their body wash when I came across it. I ended up getting distracted by a phone call and and had to log out before purchasing, but now I can try it before I commit to a full sized bottle. So that’s kind of a bonus for me. And far more productive than the distracting call truth be told. Either way I am very happy with this month’s Petit Vour Box and look forward to seeing what February holds.
