August 2020 Petit Vour Review
Each box comes with a card detailing the items included, and the prices of the full-size versions.
Let's dive in!
Harvest Natural Beauty Lengthening Organic Mascara in 'Black', 0.25 oz - Retail Value $18.00
Ok, I am about black mascara'ed out at this point. At least I have tons to give to friends? I will say that since everything went nuts this spring, I really haven't been wearing mascara often and I have noticed my normal brands kind of annoy my eyes when I do wear them. I hope I haven't become extra sensitive! I decided to push aside my mild annoyance at another black mascara and give this a shot. I was pleasantly surprised at how the formula and brush easily coated my lashes and my eyes were much less irritated by the end of the day. It also stayed put really well, though admittedly my office lifestyle isn't super demanding on makeup these days. I will warn you that this is not a drama sort of mascara. Instead, it provides a nice volume and length boost without being super dramatic. Most days I am already dramatic enough anyways!
Akar Skin Balance Toning Mist, 0.5 fl oz - Retail Value $15.00
I like the Akar brand and I like this balancing mist! I mean, sure, I tend to love most mists. Something about that fine sheen of hydration on my face really does it for me. This is a smaller travel size and, sure, the nozzle isn't as fine as I would like, but my skin really loved this formula. Inside the cute bottle is a pretty simple blend of rose water, neroli water, saffron extract, and willow bark. It's great for my dry skin but I bet most any skin type would drink this up.
Eir NYC Tough Love, 0.5 oz - Retail Value $12.00
I like to keep a beauty balm of some kind on my person at all times and this one is familiar to me. It has a great lavender and geranium scent and it is really rich because of all the shea and coconut oil inside. A word of warning: Don't leave this in your car. My car smells great now, but wow was that a mess. Before I killed it with the sun, I enjoyed it on my cuticles the most, though it's also great for elbows and dry knees. I do still have enough inside to use for a long time!
Kahina Giving Beauty Oil Cleanser, 11 mL - Estimated Value $6.49 (Buy 100 mL for $59.00)
Kahina Giving Beauty is one of my favorite brands. Their formulas are always super nourishing to my dry skin and smell like a pricy spa experience. This cleansing oil is delightful and my only complaint is that the sample isn't bigger. I try to double cleanse most days and I like to start with an oil cleanser like this on my dry skin. I give my face a nice massage before rinsing with water. You can stop after this step, but I love to follow up with a cream cleanser. I will mention that if your skin is sensitive to essential oils, this is maybe something to try with a little caution. Totally unrelated to how this is meant to be used, but I also like to add a little of this to the ends of my hair if I am super frizzy.
Andalou Naturals Kukui Cocoa Nourishing Body Butter, 1.7 fl oz - Retail Value $3.00
Our final item is a little tube of body butter that is perfect for your purse. I have really sensitive calves that I usually just use oil on after showering because most lotions break them out. I found this butter to be really soothing and hydrating without causing those pesky red bumps! Sure, this stuff isn't loud or filled with bells and whistles, but I am pleased with how it makes my legs feel. And that's a big compliment from these finicky gams!
Verdict: This month's Petit Vour box was a winner for me. Sure, the overall value of $54.49 wasn't jaw-dropping for the price of the box, but the stuff inside was all quality and it met their advertised $50 threshold with some to spare. I loved these formulas (even the mascara!) and I will use all of these items happily. And any box that delivers Kahina Living Beauty is already a winner for me!
