Petit Vour Beauty Subscription Box: July 2019 Review

Petit Vour Beauty Subscription Box: July 2019 Review

Well here I am, about to be all caught up with my Petit Vour beauty box reviews! Sometimes I apologize when it takes me so long to get my reviews out, but you know what I have learned over the last year? I feel like I can truly enjoy the process of reviewing and therefore give a much more honest, and non rushed review without a set deadline. I was talking with a friend recently who told me she enjoyed the honesty of my reviews and it made me so happy that others could see that I was giving my true opinion - if I have learned anything in my past two years of blogging it is that being FAKE gets you NOWHERE!

Back to beauty - while last month I was left slightly underwhelmed with the contents of my box this month totally made up for it! There were two stand out products for me, one skincare and one makeup related. Get all the details below!

French Girl Lait De Rose Vitamin C Polishing Wash

This is a somewhat unique face wash in the fact that it is a powder base in a jar. To the powder you simply add a tiny bit of water or toner to activate and make a liquid paste. The benefits of the high powder concentration mean that it does wonders with exfoliating the skin - but in a very gentle way. It also moisturizes the skin with coconut milk powder, and brightens the skin with watermelon powder and the superfruit Kakadu powder, which is extremely high in Vitamin C. Due to the water less formula the bottle is able to be compact, does not take up much counter space, and would be prefect for travel! Bottom Line: This unique powder face wash has it all: moisture, brightening, and exfoliation and is perfect for any skin type.

Cost: $40 for 1.35 oz

Terre Mere Eyeshadow Base

And now for my second favorite thing in this box, this amazing eyeshadow primer. I was excited to see this as I am beginning to run low on my Ila primer (which I love) and thought this one looked like great quality right out of the box. On application it did go on a bit thick and thus I used too much which led to creasing when I blinked my eyes. In subsequent times I used less and therefore it dried and did not crease like it did the first time. I immediately loved how, even without adding any eyeshadow, this primer brightened the whole look of my eye and seemed to blur any imperfections. Upon using eyeshadow, it did make the shadow last longer and appear more pigments - both total wins! The formula does claim to have anti aging, wrinkle fighting properties due to its moisturizing ingredients. Bottom Line: This eyeshadow primer is a great buy, looks wonderful with or without eyeshadow, and makes eye makeup appear fresh for several hours!

Cost: $36 for .17 oz

Kalos After Hours Soothing Night Cream

With 97% naturally derived and 70% organic ingredients, this night cream claims to soothe even the most sensitive of skin. Vitamin C helps to brighten the skin while Vitamin E helps to moisturize and repair the skin. Lavender, Geranium, and Dandelion extract then help to further soothe the skin. In my opinion, this night cream was certainly okay, just nothing extraordinary. I did not feel a deep moisture with this cream but rather a surface level effect. This cream may do well for those that have sensitive skin that can not handle deep moisture, but for me, my dry skin needs much more than this can offer! Bottom Line: This night cream did condition and soothe my skin, but only a minimal amount and did not seem to deeply moisturize. It may be something worth trying for those with very sensitive skin due to its pH balance and naturally derived ingredients.

Cost: $44 for 1.7 oz

Ursa Major Bright & Easy 3 Minute Flash Mask

I can’t remember for sure, but I feel as if I was sent a sample of this mask a few years back when I first starting getting into clean beauty but I couldn’t quite remember if I like it so I was intrigued to try it out. The mask is meant to be an enzyme type mask that exfoliates as well as brightens the complexion and improves firmness and elasticity. The mask went on like a soothing gel which I quite liked, and it wasn’t thick or sticky feeling in any way. The description talks of the products amazing scent however I did not notice too much in the way of smell. I also did not notice much of a tingling sensation like I have with other enzyme type masks but I did notice an overall brighter complexion and smoother skin. The results did not blow me away by any means but I would say that I liked the product I just wish it were a little less expensive. Bottom Line: This mask feels very nice on the skin and helps to freshen, brighten, and revitalize the complexion.

Cost: $44 for 1.7 fl oz

I am still keeping my fingers crossed for either a new lip color or perfume in next month’s box… or both!! Stay tuned!
