Petit Vour December Beauty Box Review

The Petit Vour December Beauty Box was co-curated by fellow vegan beauty blogger Sunny from Vegan Beauty Review. I had seen some sneak peeks of this box and was so excited about the items that were included.

For those who are not yet familiar with Petit Vour, they offer a monthly beauty box. Everything inside the Petit Vour beauty box is cruelty free, vegan, and natural. I give a quick review of all the items included in the box in this post. Look for more detailed reviews of each individual product soon!

Vegan Cuts December Beauty Box Review

Vegan Cuts December Beauty Box

The Vegan Cuts December Beauty Box recently arrived at my door. The November box was really awesome so I had very high hopes for this one as well. I had watched their preview video and already knew about a couple of the items that would be in the box. I was so anxious to try them out and to see what else was included!

The Vegan Cuts Beauty Box is a monthly subscription service that delivers several cruelty free and vegan items directly to your door. It can also be shipped worldwide! Prices start at $19.95 per month. It’s a great way to try new brands and new products without the commitment of buying the full-size version.

LVX Lolli Review & Swatches

[maxbutton id=”1″][maxbutton id=”2″][maxbutton id=”1″]LVX Lolli Review & Swatches

Now that the July Beauty Box I co-curated for Petit Vour has been revealed, I am so excited to share my thoughts on each item inside with you! As I have stated several times, all items in the box are things that I love and use myself. Because of that, I may be a bit biased with my reviews.

When looking for a great polish for summer, I want something that’s fun and fresh. Lolli by LVX fits the bill perfectly.

Claims: “Our long-lasting, chip resistant and gel-like formula is free of the 5 toxic harsh chemicals found in most common nail lacquer formulas. We are devoted to providing you with top quality, socially responsible and vegan-friendly luxury products without compromising quality, durability and finish.”

Ingredients: Ethyl Acetate, Butyl Acetate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Nitrocellulose, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Glycol/Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, Trimethyl Pentanyl Diisobutyrate, Triphenyl Phosphate, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Diacetone Alcohol, Citric Acid, Benzophenone-1

LVX Lolli Review & Swatches

Pros: Cruelty free and vegan. Made in the USA. 5 free formula. Creamy consistency. Chip-resistant formula. Decent color with just one coat.

Cons: When adding multiple coats, if you do not wait until the previous coat is completely dry you could end up with a streaky looking finish.

LVX Lolli Review & Swatches

The Verdict: Pastel pink polishes are, hands down, one of my favorites. Growing up I was never into the color pink. At all. Now I love the color and can’t get enough! This is a great shade that I plan to wear year-round. I think that it’s especially fun in the summer because it makes tan skin really stand out. The chip resistant formula holds up really well, making it perfect for those of us who are too busy to worry about our nails on a daily basis.

This LVX nail polish is currently available to purchase online from Petit Vour. It’s a great pastel shade that is perfect for summer and into the fall.

The July Petit Vour beauty box, co-curated by Tashina Combs of Logical Harmony, is now available!

NCLA Let’s Stay Forever Review & Swatches

[maxbutton id=”1″][maxbutton id=”2″]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!

You can purchase a wide variety of NCLA nail polish shades and NCLA nail wraps from Petit Vour.

You can stay up to date with NCLA on TwitterFacebookTumblr,  YouTubeInstagram and Pinterest.

Petit Vour June Vegan Beauty Box Review

[maxbutton id=”1″][maxbutton id=”2″]Petit Vour June Vegan Beauty Box Review

One of my favorite beauty boxes is Petit Vour.  This monthly subscription box brings you only four or more cruelty free and vegan beauty items in each box. Each box has at least one full sized item and several generous sample sizes as well.

The theme of this months box was Away We Go: The Travel Collection. All items included are necessities you would need while traveling. They are also all TSA appropriate sizes for carry-on luggage. This box is truly portable vegan beauty at it’s best.

Petit Vour June Vegan Beauty Box Review

My June Petit Vour beauty box contained:

  • EVOLVh UltraShine Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner: These hair products contain extracts from seaweed, mango, and apricot and claim to balance the pH level of your hair. They are also gluten-free, paraben-free, and color-safe. They also have a very soft scent. Included in the Petit Vour was a 2.5 ounce bottle of each. The full size UltraShine Shampoo and UltraShine Conditioner are available in the Petit Vour online store.
  • MUN No. 1 Aknari Nighttime Dream Youth Serum: This serum is a combination of prickly pear seed oil, argan oil, and rose oil. It feels as luxurious as it sounds! Included in the Petit Vour box was a 0.03 ounce vial. The full size of MUN’s No. 1 Aknari Nighttime Serum is available in the Petit Vour online store.
  • NCLA Nail Lacquer in Let’s Stay Forever: I already own this pretty baby blue shade but have yet to share a review and swatches here on Logical Harmony. It’s such a perfect color for summer! Not only are NCLA polishes great quality, but their pastel creme formula’s are truly one of a kind. Included in the Petit Vour box was the full size bottle of nail polish. Bottles of NCLA Nail Lacquer are availablein the Petit Vour online store.
  • TAY Rosehip Balancing Facial Cleanser with Seabuckthorn: This creamy cleanser contains rosehip oil and seabuckthorn oil to moisturize while still doing a great job of removing impurities. This cleanser is great for those with dry skin. Included in the Petit Vour box was a sample size in a sturdy wooden container, but the size is not labeled. The full size TAY Rosehip Balancing Cleanser is available in the Petit Vour online store.
