Petit Vour Limited Edition Holiday Box

23 Dec 2014

So a few week's ago I saw Tamara post on Twitter about Petit Vour's Limited Edition Holiday Box so I clicked on the link and ordered it straight away. I couldn't resist! The box was worth $135 dollars but only cost $45 plus shipping. Merry Christmas to me.

I was getting a little worried as the tracking information hadn't changed since 12th December and I didn't think it'd get here before Christmas but luckily it came yesterday and I couldn't be happier. 

For only $45 I couldn't not pick it up. The box was curated with Ashlee from The Little Foxes. Here's what's included:


GRESSA Lip Boost, Aux Rouge | $26
Feels like a balm, looks like a gloss. Glam your pout with this non-sticky, buildable, matte color. TIP: Doubles as a cheek color on the go. 

This looks like such a gorgeous colour and was one of the main reasons I bought this box as I'd been dying to try Gressa! It's a really pretty deep pinky-red. 

R.L. LINDEN & CO. Thousand Petal Beautifying Mist Mini ($16 retail value) | Full-size, $48
Abundant with beautifying flowers, this mist tones and hydrates all skin types, offers anti-anxiety aromatherapy benefits and encourages you to feel radiant as your most gorgeous self! HOW: Mist cleansed skin, and while skin is still damp, apply serum, then moisturizer.

A THOUSAND petals?! Wow, can't wait to give this a go!

JING AI Sierra Glow Duo in Piccadilly & Kabuki Brush | $28 + $22
Infused with organic wild rose oil, sunflower seed oil and grape seed oil that help nourish your skin and set it aglow. HOW: Using your ultra-soft kabuki brush, brush glow duo onto your cheeks - or anywhere you desire - for a shimmery just-kissed natural incandescence.

(I swatched this below) This duo is worth $28 and the brush is $22 so this was the price of the box in just these two! The colours are so pretty and really smooth, can't wait to try this!
ONE LOVE ORGANICS Vitamin C Body Oil Sample ($7.50 retail value) | Full-size, $58
An ultra-concentrated combination of Vitamin C Ester, papaya enzymes and organic shea oil deeply hydrate and gently exfoliate for smooth, dewy, even-toned skin. HOW: For best results, apply to damp skin.
I tried my first OLO products only last week and now I've got this sample and the lovely Julie got me the Elizabeth Denn Cleansing Oil so I'm truly stocked up on OLO now!
GEORGIE BEAUTY ‘Bon Ton’ Faux Lashes & Clear Adhesive | $18 + $8
Wispy half lashes designed to accentuate and lift the outer corners of eyes for a bright-eyed look. Inspired by the popular demi lashes of the sixties. HOW: Follow this link for a step-by-step on how to apply your luxe faux lashes.

I love wearing false eyelashes...these may have to be worn on Christmas Day...

ASTER & BAY Dandelion Face Grains Mini ($9.50 retail value) | Full-size, $30 These detoxifying grains can be added to any facial oil to form a mask or a gentle scrub. Made with clays, resins, roots, flowers, and grains—each chosen for their unique anti-inflammatory and skin-soothing properties. HOW: Pour a small amount of the grains into a clean bowl, add cleansing oil and mix until you reach the desired consistency and apply to face, scrubbing in light, circular motions. Can be left on for 5-10 minutes as a mask. Rinse with warm water, follow with toner and serum.
I am starting to really enjoy using grains/clays in my skincare routine and this mini sounds like it'll be great when I have some breakouts as the ingredients are anti-inflammatory and skin soothing.
I thought I'd swatch the Jing Ai Glow Duo...the blush is a pretty pale coral shade with shimmer and the bronzer is a deep matte shade. You're supposed to mix the two together with the kabuki...will give this a go tomorrow!

I am so happy with this box and it made a lovely Christmas present to myself! The only thing that bugged me was that when I ordered, all of the products said "Full Size $x" but when I went back check on delivery, it was changed to "$x retail value, full size x$" which was a bit misleading and I think should have been put on from the start. It did have the retail value of the box in the description but that's easily looked past when looking at the products. 

Unfortunately Petit Vour are no longer shipping internationally for their subscription boxes which is a shame but I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for more of their Limited Edition boxes.

  2. Ahh I ordered my box like a full 5 minutes before you, and you get it before I do?! Lol. I got it for Gressa wich is $26 by itself and the lashes, hard to get eco glue in UK for some reason (although boots are stocking ecotools lashes will need to get those). Eagerly awaiting for my box xx
