Petit Vour Beauty School Box (August 2014)

I get so excited every time the pink Petit Vour box gets to my door.  This monthly subscription box showcases products that are not only vegan and cruelty free, but also predominantly natural.  The theme for August's box* is Beauty School and the box comes complete with products and tips to help you become your own beauty expert.  Here's what was included:


Beauty Without Cruelty Eyeliner in Soft Brown ($18.50)
I haven't tried anything from Beauty Without Cruelty, but I'm always happy to have another eyeliner.  The ingredients look good and are even free of palm oil, which is rarer than you might think.  The brown color is perfect for me too, since more times than not I go for brown eyeliner over black.  From swatching it on my hand, I'd say the pencil takes a couple swipes to warm up and then it does go on nice and creamy.

Harvey Prince Journey (Sample Value Unknown)
I'm really not a perfume girl, but I do appreciate that Harvey Prince's scents are mostly natural and are completely free of pthalates, parabens, sulfates, benzene, and other toxic chemicals commonly found in synthetic perfume.  Journey is described as exotic, awakening and transformative, and has notes of Indonesian clove bud, Australian sandalwood, Moroccan rose, French bergamot, Indian tuberose, Japanese orange flower, Lebanese cedarwood, Turkish cyclamen, and South African freesia.  

Rosemira Organics Sweet Coconut Body Butter (Sample Value ±$5)
I've heard good things about Rosemira and this body butter, made with unrefined, organic coconut oil and mango butter sounds lovely.  It's scented with sweet orange and vanilla essential oils, which, in combination with the coconut oil, give the butter a gorgeous, light, tropical scent.  Summer weather means it arrived to me somewhat melted, but I'm eager to give it a try once it has a chance to solidify again. 

Mi-Me Tangerine Lip Butter ($5)
Mi-Me isn't a brand I've heard of before, but the lip butter seems really nice.  Made with coconut oil, shea butter, mango butter, avocado butter, tucuma butter, murumuru butter, cupuacu butter, candelilla wax, vitamin E, and tangerine essential oil, it goes on smoothly and seems to just melt into your lips.  

Earthbody Brighten Cleanser & Mask (Sample Value ±$7)
For me, this was the most exciting product in the box.  Earthbody's line is rooted in the principles of Ayurveda and Brighten is a mix of rhassoul clay and thirteen plant and fruit extracts, including mangosteen, guava, papaya, pineapple and acai.  It's described as a superfruit enzyme powder and can be used as either a cleanser or a mask.



The Bottom Line
I've been happy with all the Petit Vour boxes I've received, but I've got to say, I think this month has been my favorite.  I'm most excited for the Earthbody cleanser & mask, but I'm also really happy to have the chance to try the Beauty Without Cruelty eyeliner, Mi-Me lip butter, and Rosemira body butter.  Personally, I won't make use of the perfume sample, but even without it, the value of the box exceeds the cost of a subscription.  August's total value weighs in at around $35.50.  

Petit Vour boxes retail for $15 (US) / $23 (Canada) / $30 (International) and individual products can also be bought in the Petit Vour shop.

  1. These all seem like lovely products, the trouble is picking my favorite. I've been hearing so much about this monthly subscription box and I'm hoping to try it soon. As for the eyliner, please do tell me if you like it and if it's long lasting.

    1. You're right, I think the best part of these boxes is getting to try brands you otherwise might not. I think the value is pretty good actually, and particularly for US subscribers :)

  3. Lovely box and it's unfortunate I've cancelled my subscription with them. :/ Journey sounds like something I would like, and the Earthbody cleanser ingredients sound great as well. I really like Rosemira's scents and formulation - Dr. Mira sent me a lemon coconut creme body moisturizer sample and it smelled so divine!

    1. It always happens that way with sub boxes, doesn't it? A fantastic box right after you cancel, I mean! I tried the body butter today and it really is gorgeous. I remember browsing after your review, but I'm going to have to take another look at what else Rosemira has to offer! :)
