Welcome back, beautiful squares, to more adventures in makeup. As I mentioned in my last unboxing article, this month I will be reviewing the Petit Vour Plus Beauty Box. This differs from last month’s Beauty Box in that it contains more products and the products are (in my opinion) of a higher quality. This box will cost you $25 a month ($28 for Canada and $30 Worldwide) for $100+ worth of products. As usual, all of these products are vegan and cruelty-free. Don’t forget to share any thoughts, comments, or questions down below!
Stellar Gaze Length & Strength Mineral Mascara (in Supernova), Pacifica – $14 USD
…A long name for long lashes. I have kind of short lashes so I was excited to see if this lives up to its name. I tried wearing Stellar Gaze to work and, for the most part, it held up well. There was a noticeable difference in the length of my lashes after one application. I did experience some flaking and clumping but applying it after a primer the next day was much better. This mascara is not irritating to wear and comes off easily at the end of the day.
The Underarm Bar, Kaia Naturals – $22 USD
This bar right here is AMAZING. This shower bar claims to “create a protective barrier against odor-causing bacteria” and I believe it. I’ve been using this bar in the shower and I have noticed a huge difference. This bar was able to break through the sweat and grim of a 7-mile hike and leave me feeling fresh. I’ve also extended my regular deodorant’s staying power and halted B.O. breakthrough when I get a little sweaty.
Plum Beauty Oil, Le Prunier – $20 USD
Plum oil is a powerhouse. Le Prunier‘s oil is anti-aging, balancing, and full of vitamins and other amazing qualities. The tube is tiny, but a little goes a long way. I’ve been using one drop under my eyes to help lessen the puffy darkness I normally have. I’ve only been using it (inconsistently) for a week and can’t really tell the difference, however, I have had coworkers comment on how I look more rested. I look forward to seeing the results of this sweet little oil!
Clay Renewal Treatment Mask, Blissoma – $10 USD
Update: I used the last of this product on the 25th of June. You can get 1-8 uses out of this depending on how heavy handed your application is.
Update: This little mask is amazing. My skin had started to breakout and pores were crazy clogged. I decided to try this mask again after steaming my face in the shower and I’m so glad I did. The next day I woke up with smaller pores and reduced/vanished bumps.
This little jar of face mask clay aims to stop breakouts, remove impurities, improve hydration, and refine skin texture. I was worried there wouldn’t be enough to get more than one use out of it, but I was wrong. This exfoliating mask is gentle and covers a lot of skin with a little clay. After washing my face off, there was a little bit of residue I had to clean off. Afterward, my skin did feel softer and a friend of mine told me that I looked “absolutely radiant”, so I think this mask did a great job of pulling out dirt and brightening my face. The price listed in the Petit Vour box is $10, but the website has it listed for $4.
Atmosphere Protection Cream, Osea – $48 USD
Since I live in a heavily populated area having a lightweight cream to protect my skin against impurities in the air is a treat. For the past week, this cream has been the final step to my morning face routine. The Atmosphere Cream absorbs easily into my face and doesn’t leave any greasy or sticky residue. After a week my skin has a smoother and softer feel. Plus since this cream is also a primer, it eliminates that extra step if I decide to put on makeup that day.
Thanks so much for sticking with me and discovering some pretty cool products together. Next month on my vegan beauty journey I will be trying the Kinder Beauty Box. I hope you’re managing to stay sane if you’re stuck at home and exploring some fun hobbies of your own!
