Tying into Halloween, October's box was Petit Vour's Beauty Thrillers Collection*. Here's what came in my box:
Flo + Theo Lavender Flower Body Butter (Sample Value ±$7)
This whipped body butter, which has a base of shea and cocoa butters, seems really rich and concentrated, so I'm betting it will be fantastic on dry skin, particularly moving into the colder months. The lavender scent wouldn't have been my first choice - mint, lemon, and orange were also options - but it's still a product I'll definitely make use of.
Forager Botanicals Woodland Eau de Parfum (Unknown Sample Value)
As you all know, I'm not a perfume girl, so perfume samples never get me too excited. That said, I do really like how Woodland smells. It's described as a "unisex fragrance with notes of cedarwood, high alps lavender, and sweet rich herbs" and it does smell lovely and outdoorsy. Perfume really isn't my jam, but I'm contemplating how I could use the sample to scent either a homemade body oil or liquid soap. I'll keep you posted!
S.W. Basics Cleanser ($12)
S.W. Basics' ethos of using minimal but high quality ingredients has always appealed to me, but I've never actually tried anything from the line. I received the cleanser, which is a simple mix of rosewater, vegetable glycerin and tea tree essential oils. Glycerin and my face are not always the best of friends, so I'll be trying this one carefully.
Pacifica Devoean Natural Lipstick in Natural Mystic ($14)
On my pale complexion, Natural Mystic is a dark, almost vampy brown that's way outside my lipstick comfort zone, but I am impressed with the formula of these lipsticks. They pack a lot of color intensity while still feeling creamy and non-drying on the lips. I also really like the slimline tube, since it gives you that extra bit of precision when applying such a pigmented lip product. The lipstick is scented with the company's signature coconut scent, but it doesn't seem as heavily fragranced as a lot of other Pacifica products. I'd definitely consider picking up a different, more me color at some point.
The Bottom Line
Maybe I've been spoiled by how absolutely stellar the last few Petit Vour boxes have been, but I have to say I'm a little disappointed in this month's offerings! There were definitely great brands and products featured, but the specifics of the box I received just weren't my favorite. As always, the value was certainly there, with this month's box ringing in at $33, not even counting the perfume sample. The box also came with a coupon code for 30% off a Leni Penn handbag.
Petit Vour boxes retail for $15 (US) / $23 (Canada) / $30 (International) and individual products can also be bought in the Petit Vour shop.
Have you tried any of these products? Am I being too hard on this box?
