HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
Hope you had a fantastic holiday and a joyful start to the new year! The end of January is here, and it’s that time for me to provide to you my review for the December box! If you’ve been following along with me, you’ll know that I personally came across this cruelty free beauty site, known as Petit Vour, that brings you all types of beauty and makeup brands that are cruelty free. At the click of a button, you’ll be able to discover different types of cruelty free skincare for body and face, body polishes, and makeup!
As you can see pictured above, I received those 4 products: a body lotion, a brightening elixir, body polish and all natural concealer. As per usual with any product review, I test them more than once for the maximum benefits, testing them in different conditions, and more. Sometimes, these products are tested over a 2-3 weeks! So PLEASE DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE MY REVIEWS. I spend quality time reviewing these and testing them out for y’all.
Now let’s break it down for you….

FIRST IMPRESSION/THOUGHTS: Personally I LOVE rose scented products. Even better knowing that this is cruelty free and all natural. The scent is very light. The texture is a little thick, and it is not greasy at all. The size I received was a travel size, and can be used as a hand cream which is perfect for my dry hands through this Canadian winter. It also absorbs fairly quickly.

My thoughts/First impression: This product takes some getting used to. I’m someone who loves thick, creamy products, and this is not that. This is fairly runny and clear (as pictured). Although the product is runny, a little bit goes a long way, and even after the first use it did its job! After it’s first use – and every use – the formula delivered maximum results remaining suitable for my skin (which can be sensitive). The antioxidant blend made my skin feel firmer, diminished the appearnce of flaws, improved my skin tone and boosted the moisture.
