Petit Vour: Natural Givers (November 2014)

November's Petit Vour box* was co-curated with Ashlee Piper of The Little Foxes, a compassionate lifestyle blog.  The box contained products from four luxury boutique brands that are intended to simultaneously pamper and treat the body.  I love supporting small, independant brands, so I'm ecstatic to see that this month's box is 100% smaller companies.  Here's what came in the box:

Caru Skincare Rose Facial Serum (Sample Value ±$4)
Caru's Rose Serum is an oil blend formulated to hydrate and nourish the skin.  It's a mix of jojoba, pomegranate, evening primrose, and rosehip oils, with rose absolute and carrot seed, geranium, and palmarosa essential oils.  It has a pretty heady rose scent for me, but I've heard really good things about Caru's products.  

Au Naturale Creme Eye Shadow + Creme Concealer (Unknown Sample Value) 
Au Naturale is consistently raved about and I don't think it's an exaggeration to say I've been meaning to try something from their line for years.  I received the creme concealer in Beige, the company's second lightest shade and while I thought it looked dark in the pot, it's actually a pretty perfect match for my skin.  Palma, the creme eye shadow I received, is a shimmery gold/bronze that's just gorgeous.  Both products are very creamy and they're really great sample sizes too.  The box also included a coupon code for 25% off an Au Naturale order, good through the end of the year.  

French Girl Organics Cerise Mineral Lip Tint ($11)
On an everyday basis, I'm all about the tinted lip balms, so this 92% organic lip tint is bound to come in handy.  From the name, I was expecting it to smell like cherries, but that turned out to just be the color.  The lip tint is instead scented with geranium and peppermint essential oils.

Earthbody Sacred Skincare Dream Body Oil (Sample Value ±$5.75)
There was an Earthbody face mask in the PV box a few months ago and I loved it,  so I was excited to see another Earthbody product this month.  The body oil is made with organic safflower, grape seed, sweet almond, jojoba, and rosehip seed oils and is scented with a blend of lavender, chamomile, frankincense, rosewood, and sandalwood.  I can't wait to use this!

The Bottom Line
As far as I'm concerned, this was a pretty stellar box!  I'm most excited about the Earthbody oil and the Au Naturale samples, but the other two items were by no means duds.  This box totally epitomizes everything I love about Petit Vour: great ingredients, lesser known brands, and gorgeous, indulgent products!

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