Petit Vour Revealed!


Au Naturale Creme Eye Shadow and Creme Concealer Sampler Set  This is a nice sampler, in fact, the eyeshadow is a great size to carry around in your purse.    I received the color Palma in the creme eyeshadow, which is a beautiful shimmery dark beige.   The concealer is in beige and it is just a bit of a sample there, not a lot in the pot.   I am thinking this is a great stocking stuffer for my older niece, so I will not be swatching them.  Value $10.00

Caru Skincare Co Rose Facial Serum   This a facial serum that has a lot of nice ingredients, but I do not use facial oils as a rule, nor do I like to use items with rose essential oils in them.  It is a crapshoot, sometimes, I will have no reaction and othertimes, I will break out horribly in a rash.   It really depends on how much of that ingredient is used in the product.  That said, this makes a nice stocking stuffer🙂   Sample Size Value $5.00

Product Description: Our Rose serum was formulated to hydrate + nourish your skin. Made with potent botanical oils of rose, geranium, carrot seed, evening primrose, pomegranate, and rosehip (just to name a few!), this serum will take seriously good care of your skin. When applied in the morning and night, this serum will help keep your skin looking fresh and vibrant and will help liven a dull complexion. It will leave skin feeling smooth, supple, and may help increase elasticity and decrease the visibility of fine lines. This serum is a perfect choice for those with dry or mature skin but also a great option for anyone that needs extra nourishment for their skin.

INGREDIENTS:  Jojoba oil*, Pomegranate oil, Evening Primrose oil*, Rosehip oil*, Rose essential oil*, Geranium essential oil*, Carrot Seed essential oil*, essential oil blend*    *certified organic

Earthbody Sacred Skincare Dream Body Oil   Unlike facial oils, I do use body oils!!  This one smells so wonderful, I can really smell the sandalwood and lavender, which is just a lovely pairing of scents.   I feel so exotic wearing this scent ~ I am going to purchase a larger size of this magic oil once I have finished this.  This alone makes the box worth it!  The oil is smooth and silky, and absorbs quickly into my skin.   Earthbody is a luxury day spa in San Francisco and they have other body oils and I am also very interested in their Move Body Oil as well.    Deluxe Size  1 oz Value $5.75

Product Description: Dream is a gentle body oil designed to enhance mental clarity while restoring moisture. Jojoba and rosehip seed deeply nurture skin. The spiritual guides of artemisia and chamomile support rest. Noble aromatics of frankincense, lavender, and sandalwood encourage possibility.

Ingredients: Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil*, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil*, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Seed Oil, Artemesia Vulgaris (Mugwort) Flower, Santalum Spicatum (Sandalwood) Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, -Aniba Rosaeodora (Rosewood) Wood Oil

French Girl Organics Mineral Lip Tint in Cerise.   This looks to be such a beautiful color but the ingredients do include “rose otto” which is roses.  If it just been rose geranium, I could have used this, because rose geranium is not really part of the rose family.    Stocking stuffer again to one of my lucky lady family members!!   I am happy to see an etsy shop here from Petit Vour!  I love supporting local businesses.  Full Size Value $11.00

Product Description: This offering is for our Cerise shade; rich, ripe cherry blended with pale copper — delicious! This Lip Tint is perfect on almost anyone; apply lightly for just a kiss of color, or more for a dramatic, yet completely natural look. Our Rose Sugar Lip Tints are made to be quite soft, so they will not remain on your lips all day like a commercial lipstick; its easy to reapply them though, just a quick, slick swipe and you’re done! Also, since we do not use artificial hardeners or chemical to prevent melting, we advise that you to keep them away from hot things (dryers, back pants pockets, car dashboards)

Ingredients: organic olive oil, organic coconut oil, organic shea butter, organic palm oil, wildcrafted candelilla wax, organic jojoba oil, wildcrafted rosehip seed and borage seed oil, vitamin e, rosemary extract, iron oxides, rose geranium and peppermint organic oil, rose otto and sea buckthorn organic oil


I received a value of about $31.75 and I paid $15.00 for my box.   This box turned out to be a stocking stuffer box, as 3 out of the 4 items I will give to some relatives.   The body oil, however, is a huge hit, and I am glad that I got this box just for that item.    This is, despite my own personal allergies, a pretty darn good box this month.   Again, have I mentioned how much I LOVE the body oil?  I do, I do, I do!!
