Sneak Peek of the July Petit Vour Beauty Box!

I am getting SO excited about the July Beauty Box from Petit Vour! I co-curated this box and really love all of the items included in it. I can’t wait for it to start showing up on doorsteps around the globe! Over the next couple of days I will be sharing some sneak peeks on my Instagram.

The first item I shared is this gorgeous LVX shade called Lolli. It’s from the brand new summer 2014 collection and is a perfect pale pink.

One of these is the deluxe sample that you will get if you say you heard about Petit Vour through Logical Harmony. Another is something that’s in all the boxes, but several different (and all gorgeous) colors that I hand picked are going out in the boxes. The color you get is a surprise!

NCLA Let’s Stay Forever Review & Swatches

NCLA Let's Stay Forever Review & Swatches

It’s no secret that I love the nail polishes and nail wraps from NCLA. I received this lovely pastel blue shade called Let’s Stay Forever polish in the June Petit Vour beauty box. I had also previously received a bottle for review from NCLA as well. I love pastel polishes and have been on the look out for the perfect baby blue shade for a long time.

Claims: Use this polish to remind yourself that there are no clouds in sight on your horizon. Just clear, blue skies forever.

Ingredients: Ethyl Acetate, Butyl Acetate, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Glycol/Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, Trimethyl Pentanyl Diisobutyrate, Nitrocellulose, Triphenyl Phosphate, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Diacetone Alcohol, Isopropyl Alcohol, Citric Acid, Benzophenone-1, SD Alcohol 40-B (Alcohol Denat.), Acrylates Copolymer, Silica, May Contain (+/-):, Bismuth Oxychloride, Oxides, Blue 1, Aluminum Powder, Red 34, Red 6, Red 7, Yellow 5 Lake, Iron Oxides, Violet 2, Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Polyethylene Terephthalate, Isobutylphenoxy Epoxy Resin

NCLA Let's Stay Forever Review & Swatches

Pros: DBP free. Toluene free. Camphor free. Formaldehyde free. Cruelty free and vegan. Wears well with or without a top coat. Very pigmented shade. Chip resistant.

Cons: Because this is a light shade, some streaking may occur if you do not let each coat fully dry before applying the next.

The Verdict: I loved this shade! It really is the perfect pastel blue. So many baby blue nail polish shades end up turning out more mint than blue. This color is very true to what you see in the bottle and is the perfect baby blue shade.

This cruelty free and vegan company is one of my favorites for a few reasons. 1) They have a large variety of shades and styles 2) Their products wear well and 3) They are just an awesome company run by very friendly people. Full disclosure, we also recently teamed up for some NCLA and Logical Harmony nail wraps!

TAY Rosehip Balancing Cleanser with Seabuckthorn Review

TAY Rosehip Balancing Cleanser with Seabuckthorn Review

It seems like most cleansers fall into two categories – either too harsh or too gentle. TAY skincare formulates their products with natural ingredients. I received a sample of TAY Rosehip Balancing Cleanser with Seabuckthorn in the June Petit Vour beauty box.

Claims: “Strong enough to break through daily grime and overnight oils, but prevents the depletion of excess moisture from delicate facial skin. Rosehip oil facilitates hydration absorption and maximizes delivery of nutrients to your skin while nourishing seabuckthorn is added for its strong vitamin composition and its anti-aging properties.”

Ingredients: Aqua (Ph-Balanced Distilled Water), Aloe Barbadensis (Organic Aloe) Leaf Juice, Cocos Nucifera (Organic Coconut) Oil, Organic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil, Organic Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Oil, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Emulsifying Wax NF, Stearic Acid, Glycerin (Vegetable-Derived), Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Organic Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water, Organic Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Extract, Arctium Lappa (Burdock) Root Extract, Decyl Glucoside, Coco Glucoside, Organic Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Gel, Petroselinum Crispum (Parsley) Leaf Extract, Daucus Carota (Carrot) Seed Oil, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Extract, Tocopheryl (Vitamin E), Salix Alba (Organic White Willow) Bark Extract, Azadirachta Indica (Neem) Seed Oil, Xanthum Gum, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Rosa Damascena (Rose Otto) Flower Oil, Sodium Myristoyl Sarcosinate, Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine, Sodium Citrate, Panthenol, Citric Acid, Brassica Campestris (Rapeseed Oil)

Pros: Cruelty free and vegan. Paraben-free. Phthalate-free. Sulfate-free. Very soothing and creamy formula. Cleans without drying skin. Subtle scent.

Cons: None.

The Verdict: The Rosehip Balancing Cleanser with Seabuckthorn from TAY is a great option for those with sensitive or combination skin. Personally, I have combination skin. This cleanser worked really well to balance out my skin. My dry areas were noticeably less dry, and my oily areas less oily. It did not feel harsh at all, but very gentle. If you have been having a hard time finding the right cleanser for your skin, this could be a great option.

EVOLVh UltraShine Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner Review

EVOLVh UltraShine Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner Review

I received the travel size EVOLVh UltraShine Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner duo in the June Petit Vour beauty box. I had never heard of this brand before and was really curious to try it. Hair products are always tricky for me. I have naturally very fine hair and products often weigh it down. I read great things about the UltraShine Shampoo and Conditioner combination online and was hoping that it would work with my hair type.

Shampoo Claims: Color safe and great for all hair types—from fine and flat to coarse and curly—this niche shampoo is beloved by discerning stylists. It balances hair’s pH level in order to leave it strong and silky. Actives like seaweed extract, mango, and apricot deliver crucial nutrients to thirsty strands, while amino and fatty acids restore hair from the inside out and provide anti-aging benefits.

Conditioner Claims: “The vegan and paraben-free formula is versatile enough to tame a spectrum of hair types, from straight to curly, and fine to superthick. It detangles and adds shine, and it’s also safe for chemically treated or colored hair. Actives include wild pansy, sweet clover, and apricot extracts, all of which contain nourishing antioxidants, plus amino and fatty acids which restore hair from the inside out and provide anti-aging benefits.

Shampoo Ingredients: Atmospheric Water, pHytoBlend (proprietary concentrate blend of 20 herbs in an aqueous base), decyl glucose, disodium sulfosuccinate, cocamidopropyl betaine, lauryl glucose, coco polyglucose, seaweed extract, citrus aurantifolia, mango, lecithin, sunflower oil, soya, safflower oil, wheat amino acids, vitamin C, wild pansy, sweet clover, apricot, nasturium, nectarine, passion flower, citrus seed extract 

Conditioner Ingredients: Water, pHytoBlend (proprietary concentrate blend of 20 herbs in an aqueous base) stearylkonium chloride, glyceryl monostearate, palm oil, mango, lecithin, sunflower oil, soya, safflower oil, wheat amino acids, vitamin C, wild pansy, sweet clover, apricot, nasturtium, nectarine, passion flower, citrus seed extract.

Pros: Cruelty free and vegan formulas. Light and fresh scent. Good for all hair types. Safe for color treated hair. The shampoo had a lot of suds and a little conditioner went a long way.

Cons: The conditioner felt a little thin in my hair at first. This isn’t necessarily a con, but it takes some getting used to. I felt like I needed to use more product that I felt necessary but, once it was rinsed out, I realized that a little product goes a long way with this conditioner.

The Verdict: For starters, this shampoo and conditioner smell SO good! It’s a really soft scent that lasts for hours. It did a great job of moisturizing my hair without weighing it down. I have very fine hair and this is often a trouble area for me. Shampoos and conditioners that promise to hydrate just leave my hair limp and lifeless. This wasn’t the case with EVOLVh UltraShine. My hair felt incredibly soft and smooth. It was tangle free. And it had plenty of natural volume and texture! I have been using this product every wash since I first tried it and will likely purchase the full size products once these travel size samples are done.
