Let's get on to what you're really here for - February's box, which was a good one. Here's what was included:
Balanced Guru Scrub Me Body Scrub (Sample Value ±$3)
I love Balanced Guru, so I knew this product would be a win as soon as I pulled it out of the box. With a base of coffee and raw sugar, Scrub Me is a body scrub, but it can also be (gently!) used on the face. The texture is a little drier than I'm used to, but I used it on my hands today and it works great. It smells delicious too, like a mix of fresh ground coffee and spearmint.
My Daughter Fragrances Always Loved (Sample Value ±$2)
I think the only thing I'd change about Petit Vour would be an option to opt out of perfume samples. I'm just not a perfume person, so they don't get used. That said, I like that My Daughter Fragrances are free of parabens, phthalates and synthetic fragrance and I've heard good things about them. I'm sure I can easily find someone to pass this on to.
Ellovi Mint Chocolate Body Butter (Sample Value ±$4)
I love the Ellovi Tinted Lip Butter that came in September's Petit Vour box and the Body Butter is divine as well. It feels silky and melts into the skin beautifully, plus it smells incredible: just like Thin Mints or mint chocolate chip ice cream. I foresee a serious obsession with this scent in my future!
Lily Lolo Vegan Mascara ($20)
Petit Vour revealed that the Lily Lolo mascara would be featured in an upcoming box, so I already knew this was coming. Good natural mascara is hard to find - and good vegan natural mascara is that much harder I'm sure - and I really love this one. I just threw out my previous tube (reviewed here) so I'm very happy to have another. This mascara really excels in terms of volume and, in that regard, it's miles above every other natural mascara I've tried. It smudges a tiny bit towards the end of the day, but nothing terrible, and it has never irritated my sensitive eyes.
The Bottom Line
This is one of my favorite boxes I've received from Petit Vour, so doing the math on it, I was actually a little surprised. At $29, it's worth more than what you pay, but it's also one of the lower value boxes I've received. I stumbled onto some of JenLuvsReviews' subscription box reviews recently and she always makes a point to differentiate between actual monetary value (what an item sells for) and personal value (what you would pay or an item) and I think that's key. Personally, I'll pay $20 for a good natural mascara like the Lily Lolo, which means everything else in the box is just icing. So, the fact that I also love both the Ellovi butter and the Balanced Guru scrub makes this a pretty stellar box in my mind.
Petit Vour boxes retail for $15 (US) / $23 (Canada) and individual products can also be purchased in the Petit Vour shop.
