Petit Vour Bon Voyage Box (June 2014)

Petit Vour is a monthly subscription box dedicated to providing vegan and cruelty free beauty products.  In their own words:
"Beauty is bold.  Beauty is kind.  Beauty is self-expression and emotion, inner glow then outer glow.  We strive to enhance these elements for you and help make it easier in maintaining a compassionate lifestyle.  Every aspect of our beauty box is thought out and constructed to provide you with the highest standards.  To us, that means no animal testing, animal products, parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde, sulfates, and so much more."
The June box* features the Away We Go Travel Collection.  The box was curated "to honor those no-fuss, wanderlusting beauty days."  Here's what was included:




Tay Rosehip Balancing Cleanser with Sea Buckthorn (Sample Value ±$4)
Tay's beautiful bamboo packaging has always caught my eye, but I've never tried anything from the brand.  New cleansers are one of my favorite skincare items to try out, so I'm happy to receive this, though I have been struggling to track down an ingredients list.  

Mun No. 1 Aknari Brightening Youth Serum (Sample Value ±$4.75)
Mun's serum, which consistently garners rave reviews, is made up of only three certified organic ingredients: prickly pear seed oil, argan oil, and rose oil.  The rose has held me back from trying this serum in the past, since as many of you know, it's not my favorite scent, but after smelling the sample, I'm happy to say that the rose isn't overpowering.  With all the accolades, plus a full size ringing in at a steep $95, I'm happy to have the chance to try this oil out in sample size.

NCLA Nail Lacquer in Let's Stay Forever ($16)
My nail polish collection is pretty small and I don't have anything close to this pretty, milky baby blue.  NCLA polishes are both vegan and 5-free, and with polishes retailing for $16, this one item covers the entire cost of the box for US subscribers, and a significant chunk of it for Canadians and Internationals.

EVOLVh UltraShine Moisture Shampoo + Conditioner ($8/$9)
Perfect timing on these two, as I've just run out of shampoo and conditioner and been digging through my sample box to tide me over until my Acure replenishment arrives!  I haven't heard of EVOLVh before, but the ingredients look pretty good.  The scent is a bit perfumey - especially on the conditioner - and reminds me of mainstream, salon hair products, but it's not so strong that I won't still give them a test run.

As an extra perk, the box also includes a coupon code for 20% off purchases at Hipsters for Sisters, which sells designer, eco-friendly, cruelty free belt bags.

The Bottom Line
The Petit Vour Box retails for $15 (US) / $23 (Canada) / $30 (International) and judging by this box, I think you get good value for your money, especially if you're in the States.  I need to check ingredients on the Tay cleanser, but assuming they're okay, I'll be using all five products, which is pretty fantastic for a subscription box.  Petit Vour's main focus is vegan and cruelty free products, but obviously they are interested in natural, non-toxic ingredients as well, which is great.  Going by reviews I've seen of previous boxes, not every product is going to be 100% natural, but the boxes do always at least lean in that direction.

I'm really happy with the contents of the June box, and I do think Petit Vour is worth checking out if you're looking for a monthly subscription box that's cruelty free, vegan, and/or natural.  Full size products are also available in the Petit Vour Shop.
