Pelle Beauty Luxe Beauty Oil Review

Pelle Beauty Luxe Beauty Oil Review

I love skin serums and beauty oils. They have to be one of my favorite skin care items. These beauty oils are often multi-purpose and I love seeing how they improve my skin. When I got a chance to try out the beauty oils from Pelle Beauty, I was very interested. I read great things about them online and couldn’t wait to see how the Luxe Beauty Oil from Pelle Beauty would work with my skin.

Now that the July Beauty Box I co-curated for Petit Vour has been revealed, I am so excited to share my thoughts on each item inside with you! As I have stated several times, all items in the box are things that I love and use myself. Because of that, I may be a bit biased with my reviews.

Claims: “Luxe Beauty Oil is an exceptional deep penetrating and healthful way to revive your skin. A natural anti-aging face oil containing 10 plant-based floral extracts and botanicals to refine, restore and revitalize lackluster complexions. Stunning results for all skin types.”

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

Pros: Cruelty free and vegan formula. Paraben free. Phthalate free. Sulfate free. Free of synthetic dyes and fragrances. Re-useable and recyclable packaging. Very concentrated formula. Very moisturizing without being heavy. Smells great.

Cons: None.

The Verdict: From the first time I tried this beauty oil, I was hooked! It’s so luxurious feeling! The formula smells amazing. It’s not too floral or too natural, but this soothing scent that’s just in the middle. It’s also extremely concentrated. Just two drops is enough to cover my entire face and work wonders. After several uses, my skin was softer and brighter. With continued use, I have only seen it’s texture and tone improve. At first, I applied this beauty oil just at night. I was concerned that applying it in the morning would effect the application and wear of my makeup. When I finally tried it in the morning, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it had no impact on the application or wear of my makeup. I am definitely going to continue to use this item and would suggest it to others as well.

Several types of beauty oil from Pelle Beauty are currently available to purchase online from Petit Vour. Choose from Balance, Luxe, Nourish, or Stellar. This product was included in the July Petit Vour Beauty Box that I co-curated for Petit Vour!

The July Petit Vour beauty box, co-curated by Tashina Combs of Logical Harmony, is now available!

Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant Lavender & Sage Review

Schmidt's Natural Deodorant Lavender & Sage Review

A good natural deodorant is hard to find. There are lots available in stores and online, but the real task is finding one that actually works. Especially if you lead an active lifestyle. The folks at Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant wanted to make something that was not only natural, but also effective. I have tried other Schmidt’s scents in the past and even recommended them in an article I wrote for Vegan Health & Fitness Magazine. I was very excited to see if this scent worked as well as the others that I have tried.

Now that the July Beauty Box I co-curated for Petit Vour has been revealed, I am so excited to share my thoughts on each item inside with you! As I have stated several times, all items in the box are things that I love and use myself. Because of that, I may be a bit biased with my reviews. Several scents of Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant were included in the boxes – Lavender & Sage, Bergamot & Lime, and Ylang-Ylang & Calendula. Schmidt’s also makes two other scents – Cedarwood & Juniper (read my review of this scent) and Unscented.

Claims: “By eliminating underarm odor and wetness without the use of harmful chemicals, Schmidt’s offers a no-guilt alternative to conventional brands. The clean, herbaceous fragrance of Lavender + Sage is tranquil and soothing. Antioxidant and antiseptic properties complement this top-selling deodorant.”

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

Pros: Cruelty free and vegan formula. Aluminum free. Paraben free. Phthalate free. Re-useable and recyclable packaging. Made in the USA. Smooth and creamy formula. Easy to apply. Melts into skin easily. Great natural scent.

Cons: This is not necessarily a con, but some people may need to adjust to applying deodorant with their fingers instead of from a tube. Schmidt’s currently only comes in jars. I have received a lot of feedback that people like the formula and think it works well, but wish that it came in a tube.

The Verdict: There’s a reason that Schmidt’s was included in the July Petit Vour beauty box – I love it! This is one of the two natural deodorants that actually works for me. I like that the formula is really smooth. It easily warms up and is easily absorbed by my skin. Personally, I don’t mind that this deodorant is applied with my fingers. Since the ingredients are so natural, just washing my hands after is all I need to do. I honestly do not usually like lavender scents but I do like this one. It smells very natural and just like real lavender. The scent is not at all artificial. Plus, the combination of lavender and sage work really well together to keep me smelling fresh.

Several scents of Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant are currently available to purchase online from Petit Vour. This product is available in the July Petit Vour Beauty Box that I co-curated for Petit Vour!  This box is also currently still available!

LVX Lolli Review & Swatches

LVX Lolli Review & Swatches

Now that the July Beauty Box I co-curated for Petit Vour has been revealed, I am so excited to share my thoughts on each item inside with you! As I have stated several times, all items in the box are things that I love and use myself. Because of that, I may be a bit biased with my reviews.

When looking for a great polish for summer, I want something that’s fun and fresh. Lolli by LVX fits the bill perfectly.

Claims: “Our long-lasting, chip resistant and gel-like formula is free of the 5 toxic harsh chemicals found in most common nail lacquer formulas. We are devoted to providing you with top quality, socially responsible and vegan-friendly luxury products without compromising quality, durability and finish.”

Ingredients: Ethyl Acetate, Butyl Acetate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Nitrocellulose, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Glycol/Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, Trimethyl Pentanyl Diisobutyrate, Triphenyl Phosphate, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Diacetone Alcohol, Citric Acid, Benzophenone-1

LVX Lolli Review & Swatches

Pros: Cruelty free and vegan. Made in the USA. 5 free formula. Creamy consistency. Chip-resistant formula. Decent color with just one coat.

Cons: When adding multiple coats, if you do not wait until the previous coat is completely dry you could end up with a streaky looking finish.

LVX Lolli Review & Swatches

The Verdict: Pastel pink polishes are, hands down, one of my favorites. Growing up I was never into the color pink. At all. Now I love the color and can’t get enough! This is a great shade that I plan to wear year-round. I think that it’s especially fun in the summer because it makes tan skin really stand out. The chip resistant formula holds up really well, making it perfect for those of us who are too busy to worry about our nails on a daily basis.

This LVX nail polish is currently available to purchase online from Petit Vour. It’s a great pastel shade that is perfect for summer and into the fall.
