img_9976-1

I am enamoured with this months Petit Vour Beauty Box! It’s full of amazing, gorgeous products that will have your skin singing, even in this cooler weather!

I’ve recently been enjoying the monthly switch-up of illustrators for the description card that comes in each beauty box. The drawings are beautiful, no matter who the illustrator is – every time! This month, the design is by the wonderfully talented @daniellekroll. I particularly love the colour scheme! Pretty pops of red and blue, alongside pinks and other more muted shades. Danielle drew some classic cosmetics and skincare products lining two shelves. I think it’s the cutest thing – I’d personally blow this image up and hang it as a print in my bathroom! (Hmm, maybe I will…)

When Gianne and Jay founded Organic Bath Co., they were inspired by brands who used their cache to make the world better through charitable donation. They knew that giving back would be a huge part of their brand’s ethos.

Petit Vour September Box!

This months Petit Vour Beauty Box is so great! I can’t wait to dive in and give you a rundown on all the products – but first, if you’re not sure who Petit Vour is, or what they do… click HERE to read my first ever review and thoughts on this cute little company!

 

Now, let’s start! We’ve got some great goodies this month! And can we just take a moment to admire the beautiful card in this month’s box!? Illustrator Mia Charro (@miacharro) designed it. So pretty!

 

This months following items were:

Blissoma Herbal Gel Cleanser (2oz) ($16):  Free is a duo-purpose, restorative gel cleanser for when you need to remove difficult makeup and all the day’s dirt in one easy, healing wash. It’s perfect for the most reactive and allergic skin types due to it’s super pure, simple, and elegant botanical ingredients. Together in this beautifully balanced gel, herbs, soapbark, and gentle organic oils come together to rinse skin clean and balance it all at once.

 

Organic, food-grade Soapbark extract makes bubbles for your face, so you get a nice sudsing action. Along with that, an infusion of organic Yerba Mate sweeps over your skin bringing with it 196 active compounds. That’s more than the ever-popular Green Tea. The 11 Polyphenols Yerba Mate boasts possess potent cell protective properties. Combined with anti-inflammatory Olive Leaf, soothing Linden, regenerating Self Heal (Prunella), and gentle Cornflowers your skin has every reason to be restored. Even the delicate eye area can be easily washed free of waterproof makeup without tugging or any skin distress.

 

This gel rinses to a lighter and almost “squeaky” clean. It’s still free of any actual soaps though, and is the correct, skin-friendly, acidic PH. Free is also decidedly and appropriately “free” of even natural origin irritants. Free has no scents at all, no ethyl alcohol (grain alcohol), gluten, or nut ingredients, and avoids the usual list of synthetic nasties that never appear in our recipes. If you have really reactive skin then this cleanser is going to be your bff!


 

Elate Cosmetics Lipstick (Lively) ($17): I am obsessed with this lipstick! Actually, it’s a lipstick that acts more as a lip-tint – which I am not mad about!

It’s absolutely incredible, and super gorgeous on! Made with shea and mango butter, scented with organic vanilla essential oils..Elate doesn’t skimp on amazing, good-for-you ingredients!I love wearing it when I need moisture (seriously, that mango butter and shea do it well!) and a quick allover wash of colour on my lips! LOVE!


 

Mahalo Pele Mask (No Size Listed. Full Size $64 for 1.7oz):  This is a detoxifying bioactive mask that transforms dry, tired skin into a glowing complexion. It tightens pores, boosts circulation and cell-renewal, calms inflammations, combats and heals blemishes, fades dullness and reduces the signs of aging! You can mix it with water or hydrosol (herbal/floral water) and use it once a week. It can also be used as a spot treatment, which is always great, and now makes it a a nifty little two-in-one product!


 

MSC Skin Care Exfoliating Body Scrub (No Size Listed. Full Size $33 for 10.5oz): This grapefruit and spearmint body scrub is all organic and a dual-action exfoliator! The raw sugar exfoliates and removes dead skin cells, while a combination of shea butter, sunflower oil, and rice bran oil nourish fresh skin. It’s super invigorating, and super delicious smelling – surely your morning showers will be that much more awakening with this awesome little scrub!


 

As always, I highly recommend signing up for this monthly beauty box! It’s extremely easy to do and takes no time at all, and you can cancel at anytime! Make your way over to the Petit Vour website to get started!

I’m A Choosy Chick

The Choosy Chick box I received

 

Would you just look at all these goods!? The Choosy Chick knows how to supply a girl with some great clean products! The Choosy Chick (TCC) is committed to researching, sampling and selecting the finest non-toxic personal care products.  They’ve developed their very own standard (click to read more about that) for ingredients which has become the foundation for their product selections. What I love so much about TCC is that they are not only wonderful at what they do, but they are not fooled by natural sounding names, or natural looking packaging. They truly dig  deep to find products that meet their standard of organic and natural.  So, as a result of their ‘choosy’ nature, they offer the purest, most effective and unique products available right now. I just love that – getting to choose the products that fit right for you, and knowing that they’ve been hand-picked by some really smart, honest and organic-loving people!

 

The items seen in my box are:

 

All of these products have been used and absolutely loved! TCC really does pick the best products to be sold on their site – I am VERY impressed with the quality! The super cute packaging it came in doesn’t hurt either!

 

A few products I especially love are:

The Au Naturale Eye Pencil in ‘Coco’. It glides on SO smoothly (no tugging needed, hallelujah!) and the formulation is super gentle, so it won’t irritate my eyes. Win!  (Photo below of ‘Coco’ swatched on my arm.)

Josh Rosebrook’s Styling Cream. This. Stuff. Is. Awesome! It provides texture to my hair, with a nice medium hold (as it says) and smells AMAZING! Kind of like a lemon sorbet…YUM! I also love that this styling cream stimulates the cells in the hair follicle and feeds the scalp to keep your hair growing thick and beautiful. All of the benefits! Plus, it’s not stiff and washes easily from the hair. I can’t seem to get enough of it!
