The January 2011 box from Petit Vour is here! As always, it contains 4 (typically 4 to 5) deluxe samples and full-sized products from great cruelty-free and vegan brands. This subscription box is $15 a month and you can subscribe here.
This box has a good variety of products: hair care from EVOLVh, a nail polish from Lauren B., and skincare from Blissoma.
Keep reading to find out more about these products!
The first item is a full-sized nail polish by Lauren B. (all their nail polishes are non-toxic, 5-free, and I believe all-vegan as well). I got lucky because this is one of the colors I always gravitate towards! A beautiful almost-purple neutral taupey grey. The shade is called Vintage On Vine (the first picture is more color-accurate). It’s from their newest collection, and these normally retail for $18.
Next up, we have the EVOLVh UltraShine Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner. These claim to be super hydrating if you have dry and damaged hair. Since my ends are damaged from bleaching, I’m happy to be trying these out! They’re also sulfate-free and made from 95% natural and organic ingredients.
The last item is the Tonique spray Blissoma (this is not a full-sized product, but it’s a very generous sample). I wasn’t exactly sure what this product is meant to be. The pamphlet tells us to “think of this as an herbal tea for your face!”, which isn’t very helpful. “Toners” have been obsolete for a while (if you need a toner to bring your pH back to normal, you’re using the wrong cleanser).
The directions tell you to apply it after cleansing and before moisturizing, like you would a good old toner. Looking at the ingredients, it’s clearer what they meant by the “herbal infusion”. It mainly contains plant infusions and a little bit of glycerin and essential oils.
They also suggest using this mist “to set mineral makeup”. After testing it out on my hand, it has a really nice and soft texture, and it’s also a bit sticky (but doesn’t feel sticky after it dries). TL;DR I have high hopes to be using this as a makeup setting spray!
