PETIT VOUR APRIL 2015 BOX REVIEW

Better late than never, right???Petit Vour April 2015 Box SubscriptionI’m pretty backlogged in writing these reviews, but I’m going to try to catch up before the summer ends, so wish me luck.  Oh, and please don’t think the lack of posting reviews is because I don’t like the products. I actually get really excited to receive the box each month. I wouldn’t repurchase every product I’ve tried, but I have found some real gems, which is great.

Test Dummies: Joyous Health Minty Fresh Toothpaste

Joyous Health Minty Fresh Toothpaste

WHY I BOUGHT IT

I wanted to alternate my typical routine of brushing my teeth with soap (more on that here), with a paste that had a baking soda base. Erin just featured Joyous Health as her Book of the Month and I wanted to learn more about it, so I checked out Joy’s website. Guess what… she has a toothpaste with a baking soda base (SCORE).

When I visited The Yoga Show last month I knew I wanted to pop by the Joyous Health booth to purchase it. Little did I know, Joy would be there in real life. She was so kind and helpful, I was going to buy the toothpaste anyways, but it made me feel extra happy that I was supporting a local business and a fellow female!

WHY I BOUGHT IT
I had just run out of my old cleanser and needed something to replace it. However, I was in a rush and grabbed this without reading the ingredients as well as I should have, and now I have regrets 😦 (more…)

Test Dummies: Dr. Bronner’s Lavender Coconut Magic Lotion

Dr. Bronners Lotion

WHY I BOUGHT IT
I was in the habit of using coconut oil to moisturize after I showered, but sometimes that can get a bit oily/takes a while to absorb. I thought I’d try something new and really like Dr. Bronner’s products, so gave this lotion a shot.

PRICE
$13.99 for 237 ml

MY THOUGHTS
I really like this lotion, the consistency is more of a mix between an oil and a cream. It’s kind of runny, but absorbs quickly and I don’t need that much to moisturize my whole bod (4-5 pumps). I also really like how smooth it makes my skin feel after using it and doesn’t have a heavy scent. (more…)
