I believe the final February subscription box has now arrived. It’s actually not surprising it is Petit Vour as they don’t ship until about the 20th and as February was a short month, it is not unusual for there to be a little overlap. I just find it kind of fun that I’m already getting e-mail shipping notices for some of the March boxes. Honestly with February this happens every year regardless. the short month just plays havoc with everyone and if feels like February’s boxes barely arrive before march is on the doorstep. Since January always feels like it takes forever it sort of feels like February tries to accelerate to make up for it. But speaking of moving on…
It is time for the February Petit Vour unboxing. For those that don’t know, Petit Vour is a cruelty Free subscription box that costs $18 per month. They do have a Petit Vour Plus that costs $25 per month. I have not tried that one so I can’t vouch for it. The regular Petit Vour box contains four items that are generally deluxe sized samples with the occasional full sized item thrown in. While I really do enjoy this subscription, this will be my last Petit Vour box for a while. I will continue to shop on their site as they offer really good deals on lots of clean products that I really enjoy. I am certain I will be back at some point for the box as well, but I needed to take a little break from it.
So what is in the February Petit Vour Box?
Well the first item up is from a brand that pops up routinely in the Petit Vour Box and that is K Voss. This time it is the K Voss Perfecting primer. It claims to be a multi use illuminating primer that naturally adjusts to your skin tone. As I have an ongoing love affair with the primer category, I am very much looking forward to trying this out. I think it may end up in next week’s make up bag.
The second item in this month’s box is also from a brand we see quite often. Personally I have an unsteady relationship with the brand Goldfaden, MD. Everything about it says I should like ti and I always approach with high hopes. Only occasionally are those hopes realized.
This month I received the Goldfaden, MD Doctor’s Scrub which is an exfoliate. I love exfoliants as much as I love primers. I actually tried a full size of this a while back and if I remember correctly it was a good exfoliate but it was also the kind of exfoliate you only use once a month at most. I could be wrong, I will have to check my notes, but I believe that is the case. It is a small enough sample that I can easily test it again to confirm. I’ll keep you updated on that once I take it out to try.
There was actually a second makeup item in the box this month ant it is the lip color pencil from the brand Slate Cosmetics. The name sounds vaguely familiar but I don’t think I have ever actually tried them. I tried looking up the lip pencil but only found skincare on their site. i will do my best to find out more information before I use it and report back to you. I am always up for trying a new lip product and when I swatched it the color seemed nice. So I will add it to the products to put in the makeup bag for testing. I find the fact that I can’t find much about it on line rather intriguing.
And finally we have the fourth item in the box and that is Davids Premium Natural Toothpaste. I’ve seen the toothpaste around, but never tried it before. In general, I am a Crest girl at least as far as Toothpaste and whitening strops go. I tend to go with Listerine for my mouthwash. I am however almost out of my Crest toothpaste so perhaps I will give this a trial instead of repurchasing my standard tube.
One think I like about this subscription box is that they so often send items I would never think of picking up on my own. Often times I find brands that I’ve never heard of or only heard of and never tried. A few of my new favorites have come out of this subscription box like the Akar Balancing Toning Mist and the Bkind exfoliating scrub of course Bkind also now has a Papaya Enzyme Scrub and as I am really liking the Elemis Papaya Mask so I may have to give that a try as well soon, but that is another story.
I really like both and would not have found either on my own. While I am taking a break from this box for a little while, it is only so that I can try out other subscription boxes, not because I don’t like it. This is a box I will definitely be circling back to in the future. But for now, I must bid a fond adieu until we meet again.
