Cruelty-Free Beauty: Petty Vour March Box
Why I Love Petit Vour
A few years ago, I saw a video that changed everything in my beauty junkie ways.
A Beagle Freedom Project video popped up on my Facebook, and I never looked at makeup the same way. After seeing the torture these animals go through during animal testing, I vowed never to let an animal suffer just so I could have pretty blush or nice, blending eyeshadow.
When I first made the choice to go cruelty-free with cosmetics, things weren't easy. High quality products were few and far between. It was truly a sacrifice. Even things like the makeup box subscriptions were off the table since they included many products that tested on animals or included ingredients tested on animals.
Then I came across Petit Vour. This cruelty free company mails a monthly subscription box with four items each month. Every item is 100% cruelty free and also vegan. These all natural products range from makeup to skincare to hair care. Even the sample sizes are decently sized, but sometimes you even get full-size products.
I've been a member of this program for over a year now. For $15 a month (which includes shipping), it's great to try new products and get a fun surprise in the mail each month.
What's in the March Box

My review of the box
This month was mostly skin care products, which is what I really like to try from Petit Vour. I have used items from Little Barn Apothecary and am excited for the cleansing oil. I like that it says it tones and hydrates in addition to cleansing. I'm also a huge fan of masks, so I'm excited to pop that on (impromptu spa day, anyone?).
The face balm definitely looks like something to wear at night only and even suggests that on the directions. It looks a little heavy, so I do worry about clogging pores. It is formulated with rare East African shea butter, though, which sounds like it would be super hydrating. My skin is coming off of the harsh winter months, so it probably could use something like this right now.
The only negative thing I have to say is that I'm worried about the illuminating beauty oil. I tried a bit on today and feel like it makes my nose look greasy instead of dewy. I'm also super not confident in my contouring/highlighting abilities, so I'm not sure if I trust myself with this. It has high amounts of glitter that do fade into your skin once the oil is absorbed, but I just have this inward fear of looking like a disco diva and no one telling me.
So I'll come back and give more feedback once I've tried the items, but so far it looks like a nice box as far as skin goes. Check back next month to see what April's box is or head to Petit Vour for your box now!
