After falling in love with products from Petit Vour’s June Box, I have to say – they have done it again with their July box!
This month (well, I guess since it’s now August it would be last month) is all about must-haves for the summer beauty collection. Included in the July box is:
- Full size LVX nail polish in Lolli
- Full size Modern Minerals eye shadow in Sakura
- Travel size Schmidt’s Deodorant in Lavender + Sage
- Sample size Pelle Beauty Luxe Beauty Oil
Of course, the first thing I had to try was the nail polish. I absolutely loved last month’s NCLA polish so was quick to try Petit Vour’s pick for this month. I normally don’t reach for baby pinks, but once I applied LVX Lolli, I was pleasantly surprised. It wasn’t too light and wasn’t too bright, it was just a nice soft pink. The color could really be worn at any time of year, it’s very versatile.
The first time I applied it, I actually had some difficulty with it streaking. I think my Butter London base polish is going bad or old or something, because when I tried it again with Zoya’s base coat, it applied really well. It took 2-3 coats to be truly opaque, depending on the thickness of each coat.
I was really impressed with the wear of this, I got a full 6 days with no chips! This is the first polish I’ve tried from LVX, but they are definitely on my radar to try in the future. And of course, being 5-free is a huge bonus!
So not only did I get a full size nail polish, but a full size eye shadow too! I hadn’t heard of Modern Minerals before, but instantly fell in love with the color Sakura.
The color is a bit hard to see against my skin, because I’m so fair. It’s a light pinky-purple color with high shimmer. I’ve been wearing it as a highlighter on my eyes and I love it. It really gives them a nice pop, and blends well with my other colors. Similar to the LVX nail polish, I’m very impressed with this one too!
Ingredients: mica, titanium dioxide, tin oxide, iron oxides.
I have already tried and reviewed Schmidt’s Deodorant so was very happy to see this in the box! Having a travel size is always handy for traveling or keeping at work, in your purse, etc. It is a harder deodorant though and they didn’t include a little spatula. I already have one from my other deodorants, but I think people new to Schmidt’s may have a hard time. I won’t go into details on this since I already have a full review, but I will say this – Schmidt’s is awesome.
Ingredients: Butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), Maranta arundinacea (arrowroot) powder, Theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, Salvia sclarea (clary sage) essential oil, Lavandula (lavender) essential oil, Tocopherol (vitamin E), Humulus lupulus (hop) extract.
And last is Pelle Beauty Luxe Beauty Oil. I’ve never tried anything from Pelle Beauty before. The first thing I noticed about the beauty oil is the smell, it smells DIVINE. It is sort of a blend of floral and green. It’s very fresh smelling, I would wear it as a perfume!
Unfortunately, my skin didn’t care for this. It is very moisturizing, but it broke my skin out. Not really bad, but the two times I applied it at night I woke up a few small pimples. Such a bummer too because it smells so good! Oh well, that is what these beauty boxes are for – trying new things!
Ingredients: Cucumis Sativus Oil, Limnanthes alba (Meadow foam) Seed Oil, Oryza sativa (rice) bran oil, Caprylic/capric triglyceride, Oribignya (Babassu) Oleifera oil, Citrus aurantium amara (Neroli) flower oil, Jasminum sambac (jasmine) oil, Rosa damascena flower oil, Cananga odorata (Ylang Ylang) flower oil, Fusanus spicatus (sandalwood) oil.
The Petit Vour box is only $15 (which includes shipping) so with the full size nail polish ($16) and full size eye shadow ($12.50) – this box is definitely worth it. I’m totally digging Petit Vour’s monthly finds, I can’t wait to see what they include in future boxes!
Have you tried Petit Vour or any of these brands before?
