Petit Vour: December Box Reveal



I was so excited to come home from our trip to find my first Petit Vour box waiting for me! They offer a cruelty free and high quality skincare monthly subscription as low as $15USD per month. I was attracted to their program because they work with brands that are hard for me to come by like French Girl Organics and Little Barn Apothecary.

I was super excited to receive the Ursa Major Golden Hour Recovery Cream. I've been wanting to try out this brand for a while and this cream was the perfect start. Neroli, rose and sandalwood scented. GOSH! I love anything sandalwood. This cream smells dreamy! It's supposed to hydrate, reduce wrinkles, improve texture and fight off elemental stressors.
I was pleasantly surprised by the True Moringa Lip Whip. I was a little shocked at the colour at first. Bright magenta like my mom used to wear when I was a little girl... eek! I was sure this was going to be a thick and flashy lipstick.I stuck my (clean) finger in it and when I took a look, hallelujah! It's a balm! It's has a rosy tint on my lips but mind you, my lips are dark so it might look brighter on the fairer skinned peeps. Also, it feels like a lip oil. Now, I'm not crazy about lip oils in general because of how they feel on me but after reading about this product online, I'm going to give it a go because it's full of fatty acids and antioxidants which will fight ageing and guys... lips need love too!

This box is full of firsts! Along with my first Juice Beauty product with a nice every day mascara. This is for the people who take no-makeup makeup very seriously. It's extremely natural looking by giving you just a bit of colour, length and definition. One coat it all you need because at the second coat things start looking like actual mascara and I don't believe that's the point of this tube.
I whipped up the Odacite Synergie [4] Immediate Skin Perfecting Beauty Masque with some apple cider vinegar one morning and wanted to catch up on Grey's Anatomy while it worked it's magic. The 4 stands for the four different benefits of this mask. Detoxifying, peeling, brightening and firming. It sounded like a workhorse of a mask but I didn't have too much fun with this. I washed it off after 10 minutes because my eyes wouldn't stop watering. I'm used to using apple cider vinegar with bentonite clay so I don't know if the ACV was the problem. When I washed it off, I noticed some white patches on my skin... that was the most worrisome. It looked like a chemical burn and it burned for the rest of the day. I put some pain relieving cream on it and it was ok by night time.

I looked online for other reviews and saw people mixing it with honey and yogourt... I really wish I had some more of it so I could try it mixed with soothing ingredients because people are raving about this stuff (I later found out that the sachet was good for 2 uses! DOH!).

I did notice the hyper pigmentation around my chin was much brighter than I had ever seen it.

Finally, included in this box, a brow serum by Province Apothecary which is made up of a blend of oils to help create fuller brows. I have had my eyebrows microbladed so I don't really have a need for this right now but damn does this smell good! I've been putting this on my eyebrows whenever I mask for some extra spa-vibes.
