I am BEYOND late on posting my May Petit Vour review but better late than never! I love, love, loved this box! It has so many cool elements and I WORSHIP the Odacite skin care that I got to try because of it! Just to give you a little overview of what Petit Vour is – they are a monthly subscription box that sends you vegan and cruelty free beauty product minis each month for only $15 and free shipping! How awesome is that price?!

Here is what came in the May Box:

  • A gift certificate for a 10 day skin care treatment with a consultation from Odacite (this is almost a $30 value on its own!!)
  • Tsi-La Organic Perfume Oil
  • Go Raw Spirulina Energy Bar
  • Sample sizes of Acure’s Morrocan Argan Oil and Argan Stem Cell Shampoo and Conditioner
  • Misa Nail Polish in the color Looking for Trouble

I seriously adored the Odacite skin care treatment! The consultation was very descriptive and you answered several questions related to your skin and lifestyle and they sent you this kit with everything from day cream and eye cream to jojoba exfoliate! This treatment changed the texture of my skin COMPLETELY and every product was amazing! I miss it!

I didn’t get to use the perfume oil as much but I was thankful to be introduced to a vegan perfume company! One of the greatest things about the subscription boxes is their ability to introduce you to all of these amazing companies you had no idea existed!

The Acure shampoo and conditioner —- just OH MY GOD! The smell is just AH-MAZING!!! If you love marzipan, you are going to LOVE how this smells! I love how this makes my hair feel as well and if it smells like marzipan all day – I will use it forever and ever! I have curly hair that tends to be on the frizzy side so whatever product there is that is formulated to help calm it, I love to try and I have to say my hair came out pretty damn awesome after using this stuff! Try it out now!!

I have to say, I HATE THE TASTE OF SPIRULINA so I didn’t love the Go Raw bar but I respect the benefits of it and it was a nice little treat within the box!

I am always looking for nail polish brands that are vegan and formulated without “the big three” so I was ecstatic to try this out and I loved the fact that it was a full size bottle! I do have to say that you’re going to be putting on at least a couple of coats to get a nice finish. This is a pretty see through color but when it goes on right, the color is so pretttty!

All in all, I loved the Petit Vour box and if you haven’t tried it or you are looking for a vegan beauty box to try – check it out now!

Now, onto the Vegan Presence box!

I was beyond excited when my Vegan Cuts Snack box arrived!

I’ve been dying to try it ever since they came out so when I found out they had chosen me to review the May box I jumped right on it! For those who don’t know what it is, Vegan Cuts provides monthly snack boxes for $19.95 (free shipping within the US!) a month and each month you’ll get tons of goodies delivered straight to your door! It”s a great way to discover new vegan items as well as get enough snacks to last you a month if you don’t end up eating them all at once!

The items that came in the snack box were:

I loved the Vigilant Eats oatmeal because it’s a quick, easy and healthy treat I could take on the go and I love the addition of powdered hemp milk. I have to say I am in no way a fan of the Journey Bar. The idea behind the bar is awesome, a savory nutrition bar but I think the formula needs to be worked on. When I tasted the bar, there was an overwhelming ginger taste that I just could not imagine eating more of. The Earnest Eats bar was a little chalky but had good flavor. The Graw Bar was DELICIOUS! I loved it so much haha. I need to buy tons more of make my own version and I love that there are nothing but simple. natural and healthy ingredients. The Ginny Bakes bar is …..to say the least…..terrible. I honestly checked the date to see if it was expired because it was hard as a rock and tasted stale as can be! I feel bad saying this about it but I have to be honest and it was gross. The Bare Fruit apple chips were super yummy and I adore that there isn’t any added sugar as there shouldn’t be to begin with!

Saffron Road Crunchy Chickpeas = my new favorite snack!

I feel IN LOVE with the chickpeas and I questioned why I hadn’t found them sooner! So yummy and they taste just like litte bit sized falafel goodness! 😀 Onto the rest of the stuff, the Teecino herbal coffee was such a new thing for me and I had no idea what to expect and it actually wasn’t bad at all. I think what I decide to put in it can be changed but overall the taste was sweet, buttery and hazelnut-ty and a great coffee alternative! I could live with having me a cup of Teecino  every morning once I figure out the right proportions!

My boyfriend unfortunately goobled up all of Angie’s Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn so I can’t say much on that but I’m sure it was delicious! I haven’t yet tried the Crystal Deodorant Body Towelettes yet but I’ve heard good things about the brand so I’m looking forward to trying it!
