Christmas came early for us Petit Vour subscribers! This months box included 4 pretty awesome goodies I'm excited to tell you guys about. So, here they are..
TADAAAAAA! I thought it would be fun to take a photo of them in my itty bitty purple Christmas tree lol. This box included: Zabana Essentials Glow Stick in Bare Beauty (full size, $10 value), Kani Botanicals Petal Plush Rose Face Mask (deluxe sample size, $10), Mai Couture Highlighter Papier in St. Barts and Blush Papier in Sunset Blvd.(2 sheets of each, $6 value), and Blissoma Scentless Stick Solid Natural Deodorant (deluxe sample size, $9).
First up, Zabana Essentials Glow Stick..
The color of this stick is like a neutral yellowish shade with very subtle shimmer. I'll take a photo of it in the natural sunlight because I couldn't get a good picture of it with my awful lighting in my apartment. A few months ago I received a tube of Jersey Shore Cosmetics Highlighter in one of my beauty boxes that I wasn't really a fan of. It was hard to spread and didn't absorb well and just kind of sat on top of my skin. So, I have higher hopes for this one. I like that it's wide, so I can apply it on my body. I don't know if I'll use it on my face, but I can imagine it'll be really nice for a pop of shimmer on my neck etc.. in the warmer months, and even in the cooler months when you want a little shine! The scent is orangey lemon. It's really a pleasant scent because it's not too overpowering. It's subtle but it says beach, without the coconut. They say you can use it as a lip tint, but clearly you wouldn't use it as a lip tint one day and then on your face and/or body the next. This is the full size product this month, which is exciting!
Next up, Kani Botanicals Petal Plush Rose Face Mask..
I know this is completely unrelated to how the product is, but I just love the black and white rose design on the back of this packet. Isn't it so pretty?! This mask/scrub couldn't have come at a better time because my face has been going crazy lately! It's greasy and breaking out, and yet I still have flakes all over. This mask, despite all of the oils, is actually good for oily acne prone skin because it gently exfoliates while replenishing your skin's natural oils so your face doesn't have to overcompensate by producing more oils. I am really excited to try this one! The full size is 4.5 oz and it retails for $28, and you can find it on their website!
Next up, the Mai Couture Highlighter and Blush Papiers..
I am so in love with these papiers. They're so fancy, and so convenient, and so much more pigmented than I thought they would be. I used them today, but I plan on using them again tomorrow so I can take photos. I was too rushed this morning to take pictures.The fact that you can use a blotter to absorb oil, then apply color, all in one product with no brushes is brilliant! The full size of the highlighter (which comes in another shade) is $28 for 50 sheets, and the blush (which comes in several shades) is $17.50 for 50 sheets.
Lastly, the Blissoma deodorant..
I am so excited for this because when my husband and I go to Disney, I'm going to need deodorant and considering that everything is restricted that you bring on a plane, this will be perfect! There really is no scent at all, which is spot on as to what they described. I love the all natural ingredients. And, I love that a lot of them are organic. I am forever looking for new and good vegan deodorants to try and I didn't even know Blissoma made one! Super exciting!
Overall, I think this was a pretty good box. The total value of this box is $35, so again you got your moneys worth, like you always do! I'll be working on reviews for products from this box and some other awesome products so keep your eyes peeled for some new posts after the holiday.
I hope you all have a wonderful, happy, and healthy holiday!
