Petit Vour May 2014 - Products & Reviews

Hello friends! I'm here with a review on Petit Vour which is a monthly subscription service that comes with mini and full sized samples from a range of wonderful brands and all products are cruelty free and vegan. I was very kindly sent this May box to try and after testing out the products for a week or so, I'm ready to share them with you!

Firstly, I must say I love the packaging of the box itself and it comes with a card with details about each individual item inside which I appreciate. This month's box came with two full sized items and two mini samples.

Paula's Choice | Resist C-15 Super Booster | Full-size: $45
This claims to repair visible signs of aging and provide smoother, brighter and firmer skin. I'm not sure I'm looking any younger but my skin has noticeably felt a lot more smoother since I started applying 2 drops of this to my face each morning and night for the past week. I don't find it to leave any residue on my face like a lot of oil/serums I've tried before and it (thankfully!) doesn't have a distinct smell. I'm not convinced if I'll buy the full size product yet but we'll see when I finish the bottle!

Deep Steep | Hand Cream | Scent: Brown Sugar + Vanilla | $10
I'll be honest when I say I wasn't that excited to try this out as hand cream is definitely a product I usually skip on but it is winter and I thought I may as well take advantage of it and luckily I'm pleasantly surprised! I'm not sold on the scent (vanilla and I don't get along that well) but the product itself is lovely and makes my hands super, super soft. After I run out of this, I'll be looking into the other scents of this.

Harvey Prince Perfume | Scent: Hello | Full-size: $55
As soon as I opened the box, all I could smell was this and was instantly excited. I have literally one perfume in my collection since going vegan and I cannot for the life of me find any that I enjoy or any brands at all really so once I sprayed this in the air and smelt it, I was hooked. I am hopeless at describing fragrances but it smells like warm spring, not too sickly and the scent stays for a really long time. I've finished this little bottle and I've already bought the full-size. I'm in love and finding a nice vegan perfume has been high on my search list for a very long time!

Aromi Lip Gloss | Shade: Rouge | $17
Besides the wonderful smell when I opened the box, I was happy to see this lip gloss from one of my new favourite brands Aromi, two of the brands liquid lipsticks were in my last favourites post which you can read here. Like the lipsticks, the lip gloss applies smoothly, evenly and is very pigmented. This shade does have more of a metallic finish but nothing I can't work with, definitely a fan of Aromi lip products.

And that's everything! As I said, Petit Vour is a vegan beauty subscription service ($15 p/month for Americans and $30 p/month for international) and if you're interested in any of the products I mentioned, you can shop the month here. I'm ready to try more after testing this box out!

Let me know if you use Petit Vour or maybe there's another vegan subscription service I haven't heard about that you can share with me

As always, thank you for reading! XO
