Petit Vour | January 2014


And yet another box. This never ends.

This time around it’s Petit Vour, a vegan, cruelty-free, organic, all good stuff box. I’ve subscribed to this one for about 4 months and I’ve liked most of what I get, although sometimes there’s some stinkers. Like the eight vials of perfume oil that all smelled like dirt and grass. Ew. No thank you.

Happy to report (Cuz you care. YOU DO.), I love everything this month. Here’s the goods:


The photo is super boring. I need to have a better way of displaying products. I’m sure everyone is tired of seeing my kitchen and bathroom counters. Maybe one day I’ll get me a fancy setup. Black velvet backdrop, or with props like some twigs or a pile of fall leaves. Candlesticks.

I’m not even sure what I’m talking about right now.

Back to the box! I got this lip butter by Ellovi that is really nice. I’m not sure if the term butter makes this any different than any other lip balm, but because it says so, it does. Just thinking it might have butter in it makes me feel as if I’m getting the softest, creamiest, most delicious lip product known to man. Because BUTTER. Plain and simple. It’s basic psychology.

One thing you must know about me is that I loooove mascara. Reason being is that I’m constantly on a lash lengthening mission, on the search for that holy grail perfect product. So getting this Beauty Without Cruelty Ultimate mascara made me very happy indeed. And after trying it out, I can’t say I’ve found the one, sadly, but it’s not bad. It’s got this weird little applicator that tends to make my lashes go clumpy in 2.5 seconds. But it’s not ridiculous clumpy, and it did lengthen somewhat. I’ll keep it in the rotation, but in the meantime, status: Still Searching.

Next in the box is another thing with butter in it. A shea butter body cream by Beurre, that is. Mine came in the vanilla scent, but it’s not overwhelmingly vanilla. In fact, I didn’t even know it was vanilla until I saw it written on the lid. Eh.

Haven’t used it yet as I’m trying to finish up my Moroccanoil body butter I got in an earlier box, but I did stick my finger in it (curiosity, it kills) and discovered the texture was very thick and emollient, seemed like it would melt pretty easily into the skin. Again, haven’t actually tried it so I could be very off-base. It could sit right on top of the body like a greasy butter skin for all I know. So probably shouldn’t try a review then. Moving right along.

Last product is yet another I haven’t tried as it gets in line behind 17 other like-minded items. But it’s a face and body scrub by Bella Pelle. Reading the stats, it claims to make your skin buttery soft – there’s that word – and removes body bumps. Not sure what that is, but body bumps can never be a good thing. Especially bumps in the wrong places. Like on my body.


Again, I like all the products in the box this month. I will use everything, which is a nice change. Cuz I seriously had to throw away those perfume oils and it just about killed me.

Onto the next box. Stay tuned!
