Review: 3 Month Subscription to Petit Vour


Do you subscribe to any subscription boxes? If you’re not familiar with the idea, I’ll tell you what they’re all about. There are boxes for all kinds of interests. Subscription boxes can be a great way to sample products you’ve never tried before. Do you love vegan snacks? There’s subscription boxes for that! Do you like trying new cruelty-free makeup and personal care products? There’s a box for that! Want to spoil your pet every month? There’s boxes for that too! You subscribe to the box of your choice and the company sends you a curated box of products on a regular schedule. Some boxes go out monthly, some bi-monthly, and some quarterly.

I’m a regular subscriber to the Dollar Shave Club (new replacement blades for your razor, monthly or bi-monthly.) I’ve also subscribed to BarkBox in the past (a box with a selection of dog toys, treats, and chews for your pup each month.)

I’ve always liked the idea of subscription boxes but I’ve never tried any that excited me.

Through blogging I’ve been able to sample a few different vegan snack subscription boxes but I’ve always found them underwhelming. They always seem to be the same: dried fruits, energy bars, and lackluster snacks. Not very exciting and not worth the money. (PS: If you have subscribe to any vegan food boxes that “wow” you every month, I’d LOVE to hear about them!!)

The subscription boxes that interest me most are the vegan beauty and makeup boxes. I love trying new vegan skincare, makeup, and personal care items.

I wasn’t sure which company I wanted to subscribe to so I decided to try a few. I’m signing up for different vegan makeup/personal care boxes for 3 months each.

To start with I wanted to sample Petit Vour. Petit Vour is a subscription box that helps you discover luxury cruelty-free and vegan makeup and skincare. Petit Vour offers many levels of personalization. You begin by filling out your beauty profile. You’ll answer questions about your style, your skin and hair type, and your fragrance preferences. They offer different options for your expectations of vegan and cruelty-free products too. Do you expect products that are all-natural? Or maybe you don’t care, as long as the items are vegan. Whatever you like, Petit Vour has something for you!

Petit Vour also has a rewards points system. Every month you can review the products you received to receive up to 400 Petit Vour points ($4.00) which you can spend on Petit Vour products.

For my subscription I was willing to sample anything, as long as it’s vegan. I was curious to see if Petit Vour would introduce me to products I’d want to buy again. And of course, I wanted to know if I thought the subscription was worth the price.

For each box I’ll tell you how many products I received, how many products were full-size or trial sized, and whether or not I’d buy any of these products myself.

Let’s get to the boxes! Here’s what I received throughout the 3 months I subscribed to Petit Vour!

The May Box:

# of products received: 5 Full size products received: 3/5 Trial size products received: 2/5 Items I would buy again: 0/5 # of products I loved sampling: 4/5 # of products I’d buy if I had the budget: 2/5

Zabana Essentials Banana Colloidal Oatmeal Mask:

No longer available from Petit Vour – $24.95 for 2 FL OZ / 56 Grams from Zabana Essentials

Would I buy again? No Did I enjoy sampling this product? Yes! Would I buy this product if I had the budget? Maybe! Additional comments: This “mask” made my skin feel great. My skin was so soft and smooth. I loved the gentle exfoliation. Unfortunately this mask is so messy, it gets everywhere! It wasn’t the kind of mask you can apply and then do as you please. This mask did inspire me to try making my own mask using oat flour, clay, and a facial oil which offered similar results.

EiR NYC Sunset Oil:

$35.00 for 8 OZ

Would I buy again? No Did I enjoy sampling this product? Yes Would I buy this product if I had the budget? Unlikely

Au Naturale Color Theory Creme Corrector in Sweet Basil:

$24.00 for 0.14G / 4 Grams

Would I buy again? No Did I enjoy sampling this product? Yes! Would I buy this product if I had the budget? No, if I were looking for a colour correcting product for redness I wouldn’t choose this one. Additional comments: The “Sweet Basil” colour corrector is more blue than green. So while it helps combat redness, a true green corrector would work so much better.

Lauren B. Beauty Reparative Cuticle Oil Treatment:

$22.00 for 0.34 FL OZ / 10 ML

Would I buy again? No Did I enjoy sampling this product? Yes! It came at just the right time when I needed to rescue my cuticles and it really did help. Would I buy this product if I had the budget? No. I’d probably opt for a more affordable oil.

Everyday Minerals Velvet Eyeshadow in Fresh Glowing:

$7.00 for 0.03 OZ / 0.85 Grams

Would I buy again? Unlikely, but possibly in a different shade. Did I enjoy sampling this product? Yes Would I buy this product if I had the budget? Maybe! Additional comments: I wasn’t a huge fan of this shade because it’s SO light not particularly reflective. I liked the formula though so I think I’d enjoy a different shade more.

The June Box:

# of products received: 5 Full size products received: 1/5 Trial size products received: 4/5 Items I would buy again: 1/5 # of products I loved sampling: 3/5 # of products I’d buy if I had the budget: 2/5

Juice Beauty Green Apple Cleansing Bar:

$12.00 for 4.8 OZ

Would I buy again? No. Did I enjoy sampling this product? Yes. Would I buy this product if I had the budget? No! I’d be more likely to opt for Lush bar soaps.

Clove + Hallow Lip Glaze in Candied Hearts:

$15.00

Would I buy again? Unlikely and certainly not in this shade. Did I enjoy sampling this product? Yep! Would I buy this product if I had the budget? Unlikely. Additional comments: I wasn’t a big fan of the formula, applicator, or colour.

Vert Mont Perfumery Cyrena Perfume Oil:

$5.00 for 1.75ML sample | $35.00 for 10ML

Would I buy again? Yes! Did I enjoy sampling this product? Yes! Would I buy this product if I had the budget? Yes! Additional comments: I love this scent! It’s unique and I’d love to buy it in full-size. It’s a nice deep blend that’s both smoky and sweet.

MUN Anarose Hydrating Rose Toner:

$7.00 for 10ML | $65.00 for 100ML

Would I buy again? No Did I enjoy sampling this product? Yes! Would I buy this product if I had the budget? No! I don’t think I could justify this price regardless of my budget!

Goldfaden MD Facial Detox | Purifying Mask

$65.00 for 1.7 FL OZ/50ML

Would I buy again? No. Did I enjoy sampling this product? Yes! Would I buy this product if I had the budget? No. Additional comments: I actually really really enjoyed this product. I loved it but I can’t see myself spending $65.00 on a single face mask regardless of my budget! It was really calming. I liked using it as a mask and as a spot treatment for breakouts.

The July Box

# of products received: 4 Full size products received: 0/4 Trial size products received: 4/4 Items I would buy again: 0/4 # of products I enjoyed sampling: 4/4 # of products I’d buy if I had the budget: 0/4

Ursa Major 4-in-1 Essential Face Wipes:

$7.00 for 5 | $24.00 for 20

Would I buy again? Unlikely, but I haven’t tried them yet! Did I enjoy sampling this product? Unsure at this point, I’m saving these for travel. Would I buy this product if I had the budget? Nah, I’m happy with ELF or Wet n’ Wild makeup removing wipes.

Lilah B. Divine Duo Lip & Cheek:

$46.00

Would I buy again? Unsure at this point, I’m saving these for travel. Did I enjoy sampling this product? I’m sure I will but I haven’t tried them yet. Would I buy this product if I had the budget? At this price? That’s very unlikely!

Osea Essential Hydrating Oil:

$32.00 for 0.34 FL OZ

Would I buy again? No. Did I enjoy sampling this product? Yes! Would I buy this product if I had the budget? Probably not, there’s a lot of great hydrating oils I could buy with $32.00!

Little Barn Apothecary Aloe + Rosewater Balance Mist:

$16.00 for 2 FL OZ./60 ml | $32.00 for 4 FL OZ./180ml

Would I buy again? No. Did I enjoy sampling this product? Yes! I really enjoyed using this mist after cleansing and before applying serums, acids, moisturizers, and oils. Would I buy this product if I had the budget? Again, unlikely… I just don’t see myself spending $32.00 on any facial mist.

Overall stats and review for 3 months of Petit Vour:

Cost: (Prices in USD (includes shipping) USA: $18.00/month or $180.00/year Canada: $23.00/month or $240.00/year (I was charged about $30 -$32 CAD per box) Worldwide: $25.00/month or $264.00/year

# of products received: 14 Full size products received: 4/14 Trial size products received: 10/14 Items I would buy again: 1/14 Products I loved sampling (I’d buy them again if I had the budget): 11/14 Did Petit Vour introduce to me to new products that I’d actually buy? Not really, no. Did I enjoy trying new cruelty-free vegan products at this price? I did!

Do I think a subscription to Petit Vour is worth it? It depends! I enjoyed sampling luxury vegan products but I’m not likely to actually buy any luxury vegan products. I would have liked to see more full-size products in the boxes. If you’re located in the US and interested in trying Petit Vour I’d probably try it (if it’s in your budget!) Outside of the US, it gets quite a bit more expensive. At $30-$32 CAD per box I felt it was a quite expensive, especially for boxes where I didn’t end up loving every product.
