petit vour september - cruetly free beauty box

Petit Vour beauty box

 I've always loved the idea of monthly subscription boxes, and started doing a bit of research into one to sign up for over the summer. I wanted a beauty box, and it needed to be completely cruelty free - which I didn't know if I could find...but much to my {pleasant} surprise, there are quite a few to choose from!

I went with Petit Vour because they talk about their deep love for animals, and how they want to share great luxury beauty products that are available to us without the use of animal products or testing. 

Their value is great and there are many subscription options...

 I went with the flat rated of $90 for 6-months (6 boxes) which works out to $15/box.

And...if you sign up right now, you receive a complimentary perfume with the code "GARDENIA". I received a rose-scented one with my box, which I will discuss later on, and it is full size!! (not a sample) 

My box arrived yesterday and I was SO excited! I took lots of pictures to share with you all and have already tried almost all of the products :)

Petit Vour sept 2015

My first reaction was, I couldn't believe how big some of the products were!

Here is a break down of what came in the box...
Blissoma Herbal Gel Cleanser (2 oz - $16 value)
Elate Lipstick in "Lively" (full size - $17 value)
Mahalo Pele Mask (no size listed - full size is $64)
MSC Skin Care Body Scrub in "Grapefruit & Spearmint" (no size listed - full size is $33)

BONUS: (due to coupon code) 
 Harvey Prince Perfume in "Damask Rose" (8.8 ml - $26 value)
 So even without being able to compute a value for two of the products...I got over $59 of products for $15!! Amazing. 

Now for some first-use reviews:

petit vour cleanser

 I used the cleanser last night in the shower. It is a good consistency, and even though I wasn't a huge fan of the smell, it left my skin feeling extremely clean and soft! This product is large enough to last a good 2 weeks, so I look forward to using it every day and seeing if there is a change in my skin!


 The Grapefruit & Spearmint scrub is one of my 2 favorite products from the box this month!
First of all, the smell is AMAZING. I wanted to lather it all over myself, but held back to save some for more than one use ;) It washed off nicely, didn't leave behind any weird, oily residue, and my skin feels super soft today!

I haven't had a chance to use the Mahalo Mask yet, but it came with an instruction card - which is super helpful because I would be totally lost on what to do without it (since this is clearly a powder and need to obviously be mixed with something before applying). According to the card, this sample contains one full treatment, or two light treatments. I'll let you know how it is once I've tried it!

Harvey Prince perfume

I was so surprised at the size of this perfume! I was expecting a small roller ball or tiny sample, but this reminded me of the full size purse perfumes you can buy at Sephora! Anyway, I'll be honest, I don't love the smell right when it is sprayed on (which was super disappointing) but I noticed a little later in the day, when it had settled in a bit, that it was actually quite nice. So initially hated it, but once given a chance it was much better :)

The image I snapped of the Elate Lipstick does not do the color justice, so I found this photo that is definitely a better representation. Initially, I was a little bummed when I saw a lipstick...because I honestly hate lipstick. I'm much more of a statement eye and light lip gloss kind of girl. 

However, I gave it a chance, and as you can see in the image I snapped of the product applied to skin, it's very sheer and feels much more like a balm than full-blown lipstick - which is perfect for me! This is my other favorite product from this month's box. The shade gives your lips the perfect hint of sheer color on them with a bit of shine.

Overall, I am SO happy with the September Petit Vour box, and I can't wait to see what I get next month!
