Petit Vour June Beauty Box!

IMG_9734

If you caught my first review of Petit Vour‘s April Beauty Box, and my last Instagram post of their May Beauty Box, than you should know how much I’m diggin’ this monthly beauty box subscription!

 

Just in case you’re completely new to this and don’t feel like clicking on the links I so GRACIOUSLY put…haha, jk…I’ll give ya a little run-down! Every month one of these pretty pink boxes you see above arrives in my mailbox! It’s full of luxurious, non-toxic, vegan beauty goodies for me to try out. In every box received, you’ll get 4-5 decently sized products. Sometimes they’re sample sized, sometimes regular sized! However, for the just $15 a box, I’d say that’s a pretty great deal!

 

IMG_9736This month’s Petit Vour box included:

Meow Meow Tweet Face Cleanser

This is a gentle, yet effective everyday cream cleanser. Its ingredients include organic plant oils, wild harvested witch hazel and a touch of castile soap to lift away impurities while providing protective nutrients and leaving my face refreshed and soft. It’s super fresh smelling and it has a great blend of restorative essential oils to combat blemishes and tone the skin. I don’t typically use it at night, just because I find that it won’t remove makeup very well, and I like more of a lather to really get off all my makeup. However, I do enjoy using this in the morning! It gently cleanses my face without stripping the skin of it’s vital moisture – it’s kind of like an oil cleanser that rinses off.

 

100% Pure Facial Cleansing Brush

This Cleanser Brush gently exfoliates, eliminating dirt, makeup, dead skin cells and surface pollutants. It is made with extremely soft and gentle synthetic fibers that will exfoliate your skin while you clean, giving skin a beautiful, refreshed glow.

 

Jacq’s Organic Green Smoothie Scrub Mask

This Scrub Mask is suitable for normal, aging, sensitive, oily & combination skin types & ANY hair type. It contains activated bamboo charcoal that draws dirt and oils out of pores, improves skin texture and absorbs odors. It has some of mother nature’s best clays including rhassoul, activated bamboo charcoal and bentonite.

 

Some of its key ingredients are:  Sea kelp, which is an anti-inflammatory and a natural source of vitamin  A, B1, B2, C, D and E. Tamanu oil, which is hydrating and helps to regenerate skin cells. The mask is also rich in fatty acids to reduce the risk of acne and fights free radicals with its antioxidant properties all found in almond meal, and is rich in iodine to combat free radicals and to help keep skin nourished and moisturized.

 

FiOR Minerals Organic Eyeliner in Brown Sugar

This eyeliner is a rich chocolate brown, with a semi-matte finish. It is 100% natural and vegan, and made with certified organic antioxidants and soothing ingredients, gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin. This pencil is perfect for smudged out smoky eyes, in no time! The creamy moisturizing nutrient-filled formula was designed not to tug or pull on the eye, and it really does the job! (I can’t stand pulling or tugging – who does?!) I really love that this pencil is free of harsh chemicals, dyes, parabens, GMO’s and toxic ingredients.

 

I can’t wait to see what July’s box holds! :) If you would like to learn more or sign up, it’s super easy! Just head on over to the Petit Vour site to get started, don’t forget that you can cancel at any time! (NO PRESSURE!)

Oh Wonder – True Blood

Meow Meow Tweet!

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

 

When I first discovered Meow Meow Tweet, the first thing I thought was “HOW FREAKING AWESOME IS THIS COMPANY’S NAME!?!” but for real, though. Brilliant! Especially for a company that concocts all organic, vegan products with pure, natural and organic ingredients. Meow, meow indeed. I like a lot!

 

With more buzz than a bee, Meow Meow has been getting around with the press! Featured in popular magazines, renowned blogs, websites and more! So, I thought to myself, they MUST  be doing something right.

Browsing their website was like eye-candy in itself! Bright, cheerful and colourful vibes all over the place! Suuuuper cute, simple, yet totally cool packaging. I couldn’t get enough! So, here I am..to tell YOU a few products I’m loving right now!

 

(From left to right) Face Exfoliant, Face Oil, Face Toner, Body Oil – Juniper Mint, Face Cleanser and Baking Soda Free Deodorant Cream with Grapefruit, and (not pictured, cus I forgot…) Vegan Lip Balm – Rosemary EucalyptusProcessed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

 

This little Mini-Travel Migrator Kit that you see above has been a Godsend! I was out of town last weekend and it made the trip with me. Lightweight, It’s perfect for traveling, for sticking in your purse (especially the deodorant and body oil) and they’re all the perfect little size!

 

I love all of the products, but some of my favourites would have to be the Face Toner, Body Oil and Deodorant Cream. Here’s a little rundown of what my faves do, and some of the ingredients in them:

 

Face Toner:

This toner is great for a daily toning of the face for all skin types. Especially those with combination and blemish prone skin. This awesome toner can also be used as a makeup setter spray, aftershave (spray on to avoid ingrown hairs) and a scalp spray for dandruff. Gotta love a product that does more than just one thing!

 

Its ingredients are: hammamelis virginiana (wild harvested witch hazel) distillate, aqua (water), *rosa damascena (rose) hydrosol, *vegetable glycerin, *acetic acid (apple cider vinegar), *lavendula angustofolia (lavender), *pelargonium graveolens (geranium), *cymbopogon martini (palmarosa), *helichrysum italicum (immortelle) essential oils. (All the ingredients starred are certified organic)

 

Body Oil – Juniper Mint:

This fresh and woody juniper berry scented oil combines with crisp peppermint and herbal rosemary to calm, tone and treat dry or weathered skin. I had no idea, but apparently it can also be used as a scalp treatment to promote hair growth and help with dandruff. Again, Meow Meow is killin’ it with the multiple/different ways of using their products! Getting more bang for your buck!

 

Its ingredients are: *helianthus annuus (sunflower) oil, *cannabis sativa (hempseed) oil, *simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) oil, *cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, *juniperus communis (juniper) essential oil, *rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) essential oil, *mentha piperita (peppermint) essential oil. (All the ingredients starred are certified organic)

 

Baking Soda Free Deodorant Cream with Grapefruit:

Okay. Deodorant. A tricky area for me…not only because my pits need to have a serious detox (read more on what that entails) but because I reaaaally love a great smelling armpit. That always proved a bit difficult for me when it came to natural, organic deodorants. But not anymore! This baking soda free deodorant cream made the switch to natural deodorant A LOT easier. If you have ever struggled with underarm sensitivity from baking soda, then this is definitely for you! Meow Meow has taken their well-loved classic deodorant cream and made a few modifications to create this new formula, perfect for those with sensitive skin and just as effective. It’s designed without baking soda and clay – what can cause sensitivities on some – this recipe uses dietary magnesium and arrowroot powder to help control moisture and odor. Interesting, right? Nourishing plant oils and butters soothe and condition the skin, and a really lovely blend of citrusy essential oils keeps you smelling so fresh and so clean-clean throughout the day! Two thumbs up!

 

Its ingredients are: *maranta arudinacea (arrowroot) powder, *butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter, magnesium hydroxide, *cocos nucifera (virgin coconut) oil, *simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) oil, *cirus paradisii (grapefruit) essential oil, *citrus bergamia (bergamot) essential oil, *citrus sinensis (sweet orange) essential oil, *citrus limon (lemon) essential oil. (All the ingredients starred are certified organic)


 

Now, onto another important smelly (the good kind) topic! Natural perfumes. Oh boy..this can also be a doozy. Essential oils are essential (hehe) in this arena, as well as plant extracts and absolutes (they’re similar to essential oils).

 

Stilllife is Meow Meow Tweet‘s line of natural perfumes. Pictured below is the Perfume Sample Set, in which there are 1/2 ml samples of the full line. Certified organic, and certified nose-pleasing! Here is the rundown of what they offer for scents:

 

Dreamtiger: Sweet, Fruity & Floral with a Woody Undertone with notes of Blood Orange, Ylang Ylang & Vetiver

Wild Heart: Floral, Brassy, & Fresh with notes of Rose, Geranium, Jasmine & Wood

Macondo: Grassy & Bold with a Tinge of Sweetness with notes of Wild Sage, Bergamot, Balsam & Fir

Green CockatooWarm, Sweet and a Little Smokey with notes of Tobacco, Jasmine & Vanilla

ArgonautCrisp, Bright & Herbaceously Floral with notes of Violet, Clary Sage & Patchouli

 

My two favourite scents would have to be Macondo and Green Cockatoo! It’s pretty conclusive of my personality and what I lean towards in the scent department. Candle-wise too!
