Each box comes with a card detailing the items included, and the prices of the full-size versions. And the flip side is always a cute print:


Now, onto the items!


Lily Lolo Sculpt & Glow Contour Duo – FULL SIZE! Value $26


I really like the Lily Lolo brand, so I was thrilled to see a full-sized palette in this box!


This contour duo has a bronzer and highlighter shade. I think this is a great palette for anyone who might be intimidated by contouring. Both shades go on light, so you can build up the color if you like, and the powder finishes are easy to blend.


The bronzer is a matte shade, and the highlighter is shimmer. Here are both shades swatched:


(Multiple swipes for each swatch.)


True Moringa Lavender Facial Oil – 2 ml Value $1.75


This facial oil is made from just two ingredients: Cold Pressed Moringa Oleifera Seed Oil, Organic Lavender Essential Oil. It’s a lightweight oil, and it absorbed into my skin almost instantly and gave it a subtle glow.

And while this vial is small, I think I should get a week’s worth of uses out of it!


Formulary 55 Sea Mineral Body Polish in Grapefruit & Rosemary – Value $7


This body scrub packet is perfect for travel. It’s just the sea salt and essential oil blend – you add water (or coconut or olive oil for extra moisture) to make a paste.

This left my skin super smooth. I just wish the scent had been stronger. I couldn’t detect the grapefruit and rosemary scents – but I wanted to!


BOX Naturals Luxe Towelette in Lavender – Value $.75


BOX Naturals Luxe Towelette in Rosewater – Value $.75

I’ve sampled these multi-use towelettes before thanks to subscription boxes, and I love the natural scents. They are also “pH balanced and 100% biodegradable, and they’re also entirely free of parabens, dyes, petrochemicals, sulfates, and synthetic fragrances.”


Verdict: This box has a value of about $36.25 – I think that’s good for a $15 beauty box! I also love that Petit Vour seems to focus on quality over quantity, and the sample sizes are almost always good for multiple uses. Plus the full-size Lily Lolo contour duo was an awesome addition to the box!

What do you think of the August Petit Vour box?

  1. I left PV after a year when the boxes started to go downhill (my opinion). When they had their 3rd anniversary and didn’t even send an extra sample I was really disappointed. I understand natural products are more expensive, so the values are lower (not a big deal), but the samples are so tiny. I switched to Good Being, the price is higher, $21, but it is customized and I feel like I am getting a better selection and products that are large enough to try. I keep wanting PV to wow me again, I would love to go back!

  2. This box was worth it. Was quite disappointed last month’s “anniversary” box. Thankfully they redeemed their self for August, and September already looks promising!!

  3. Just a PSA from Paula’s Choice Beautypedia (a source I trust): “Though they might smell good, fragrant essential oils like lavender, citrus, and peppermint have the potential to cause skin irritation. In the case of lavender oil, there’s even the potential for skin cell death, and citrus oils can be phototoxic to skin in UV light. Even a small amount of any of these oils in a face oil product can be problematic.” I have come to learn that just because is vegan/natural/etc does not necessarily mean that it’s harmless.

    • I personally disagree with quite a lot that Paula’s Choice says. Her site says parabens are not harmful and silicones are good for your skin to just name a couple things.

      I’ve used essentials on my skin for years with no problems.
      To each their own tho. 🙂

      • I try to avoid parabens too even though the data is not conclusive, better safe than sorry in my book. That’s not the way science works though, just because you see parabens in tumors doesn’t necessarily mean the parabens caused the tumors.

        • I trust Paula’s Choice. They are fair in their reviews of products, whether it’s a PC product or not. The information they provide on parabens is extensive. If you don’t trust them, try the cancer society, komen’s. Educate yourself rather than believe all the hype. There isn’t anything wrong with sulfates. Again, educate yourself and at reliable sources. People are going to be so mad when they find hundreds of dollars worth of makeup is covered in mold. Then demand that manufacturers do something about it. Then what? I don’t understand why people are not more concerned about animal cruelty. I’m not ‘vegan, I know “all natural” is just a term used to make people feel good about what they are using. Think of all the “natural” stuff all around you. Do you really want that in your food or makeup? Companies jumped on the bandwagon to not use parabens in their products due to consumer demand. Why not get outraged over animal cruelty?

  4. I now only buy cruelty-free. There is a nice selection of boxes these days that I don’t miss the old standbys. The products are usually high quality and the boxes are reasonably priced.

  5. This was a great box, and PV remains one of my favorites!

    • I agree! They are consistently great! 🙂
