Petit Vour | November 2013 “Pure. Natural. Beautiful”

After a fairly good October Petit Vour Box, November was also one that I was quite happy with! I love that a Canadian company was featured as well! I’m also pleasantly surprised to see so many makeup companies that are vegan-friendly and strive to make their products as healthy as possible.

Grasse Roots Perfumery | Perfume Oil Sample SetDSC_0302

The perfect introductory experience to the intimate natural perfumery that is Grasse Roots. Its name is derived from Grasse, France. The very center of the perfume world from the 19th century to this very day. Old world charm works in harmony with nature’s essences to create the most awakening of scents.

Thoughts: This is a Canadian company based in Stratford, Ontario (don’t like the fact that Bieber is from here deter you from this company!) and I thought this was an amazing little sampler pack. This actually retails on the Grasse Roots website for $32 so receiving this in a $25 box was amazing. The scents are all wonderfully earthy and smell almost therapeutic. I don’t think I’d ever wear these scents to work though as a perfume. These are scents I would wear on my pulse points if I felt like my head needed some clearing.

Full size: 7 samples/$32.00

I received: *FULL SIZE*

GlamNatural | Lip Cream in Bride to BeDSC_0304

Give your lips the moisture they need and the look you desire with a cream that is both luxurious and free of unsafe preservatives. Unlike most makeup lines, GlamNatural products contain no water which harbours bacteria and often calls for preservatives. Upholding the highest of standards, GlamNatural boasts swoon-worthy makeup that beacons the glamorous and natural beauty devotees alike.

Thoughts: No water? That got my attention! So, what is the consistency like then? It feels like a thick face cream and it is gloriously creamy and smooth because this lip cream is shea-butter based. I can’t even call this a gloss because it doesn’t have enough liquid in it to warrant that description! This makes my lips look so plump and sexy. Love it!

Full size: 0.25oz/$20.00

Better Botanicals | Ayurvedic Skin Care Sample SetDSC_0305

Better Botanicals produces the finest ayurvedic skin care products in the US. Better Botanicals’ philosophy is to infuse nature’s healing qualities into each preparation to help stimulate the skin’s natural ability to find its way back to balanced health. Feel cleansed, refreshed and rejuvenated by way of synergistically blended ingredients.

Thoughts: The shampoo and conditioner sample is pretty small…5mL is pretty much one-time use so I don’t think I’ll be seeing any results right away. The eye therapy is a good size though and has lemon extract in it to take away any puffiness.

Full size: Shampoo and Conditioner 8 fl. oz./$9.99 each Eye Therapy 0.5 fl. oz./$18.99

I received: Sample set for $2.30

Primavera | Skincare Sample SetDSC_0306

Primavera offers certified natural skincare and aromatherapy products that connect you with the purest joys of nature every day. Rooted in the philosophy that every day is a chance to bring nature closer – to discover balance with the outside world and the world within – Primavera’s mission is to share with you the skin and sensory benefits of healing plants.

Thoughts: Both samples are eye contour creams so this isn’t really a “skincare set”. I don’t really have too much to say about this sample since this eye cream doesn’t seem particularly amazing other than the ingredients are 70% certified organic plant ingredients.

Full size: 0.5fl. oz. /$46.00

I received: 3mL/$0.70

Raw Snacks Bar | Blueberry VanillaDSC_0307

For a little something extra, we’d like to share with you a food bar that surpasses the goal of edible goodness. Full of raw nutrition, Raw Snacks entices us with flavours like Goji Cocoa, Cranberry Cashew and Blueberry Vanilla. Forget the guilt, enjoy life, enjoy raw!

Thoughts: This was so yummy! I always have doubts when it comes to healthy food bars, but this was sweet enough to quench my sweet tooth and was incredibly filling!

Full size: 1 bar/$3.95

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Total Value of November Petit Vour: $58.95

Overall, I was quite pleased with November’s box, especially with the perfume sampler set and lip cream! I am really looking forward to using those two items the most!

For anyone looking for a vegan, cruelty-free beauty subscription box head on over to Petit Vour and try it out!
