Sumbody Soap & Coupon Code for 10% off purchase (Code: PETITVOUR)

Value: $1.98

This soap smells lovely and would go perfectly in a guest bathroom. It’s made with shea and cocoa butter so it’s supposed to be extra hydrating and soft on your skin.

MUN Aknari Oil

Value: $6.33

I received this oil in my Green Grab Bag earlier this month and I haven’t had a chance to use it yet. However, it sounds like a miracle product and is supposed to be applied before bed to smooth and soften the skin and diminish signs of aging.

Tangerine and Calendula Cream by Kimberly Sayer

Value: $2.40

I will admit that I had never heard of Calendula before but I learned that it is a healing flower that works wonders on your skin. Combined with the tangerine, this night cream is supposed to soothe and detoxify your skin.

Dr. Remedy’s Enriched Nail Polish

Value: $17.00

I have never heard of Dr. Remedy’s before, but this nail polish formula looks amazing. The color is a beautiful, pure red and the polish contains wheat protein, tea tree oil, garlic bulb extract and lavender to nourish your nails. And it’s formaldehyde free! I can’t wait to try this.

Beauty Without Cruelty Natural Eye Pencil

Value: $16.95

I love the bright pop of this blue eye liner. I forgot to take a picture of the swatch for you guys but this applies super smooth and feels creamy, but doesn’t look to thick or heavy.

Verdict: The value of this box was $44.66, almost three times the cost! I only recognized one of the products which makes me happy because I love trying new brands, especially that are all natural and cruelty-free! I really enjoyed this box and it’s clear that Petit Vour really takes their mission of providing quality, green products seriously. 10 out of 10 from me!

From the Lab Subscription Review – July 2013

Hey readers 🙂
Today’s review is for a company called From the Lab.  From the lab sends you “beauty breakthroughs from the top European labs up to 18 months before retail.” They have partnered with some of the top labs in the world to find new and innovative beauty & skincare products that you will receive before the general public has access! Check out my video below to see my first impression or read on to see my written review!

I like that the products sent to you from From the Lab are full 30-day supplies, so you aren’t just receiving little product samples. I think this is especially important with skincare, because it takes a while for your skin to adjust to new products!

The Box:

The Cost: $19.95/month (charter member price, sign up fast to be locked in to this price for life!) $29.95/month after charter membership closes

I loved my June From the Lab box and wear the eye primer every day, so I was excited to see what was in my July box!

Eye Cream No. 579

This cream has so many beneficial properties I don’t even know where to begin! It is meant to cool and refresh the skin around your eyes and help alleviate puffiness and under eye bags in addition to reducing fine lines. This month, From the Lab chose products that are meant to protect the skin from environmental toxins that build up and can harm our skin. Some of the ingredients in this eye cream are tomato stem cell culture, ginseng, caffeine, Rice and Pomegrantate Extracts, Aloe Vera Extract and Vitamin B3! I really do struggle with under eye circles and puffiness with my allergies so I’m really excited to try this eye cream.

24-Hour Face Cram No. 578

I really like the texture of this face cream. It’s soft and light and could be worn during the night without clogging up my pores. It is supposed to neutralize free radical damage, purify and protect your skin from toxins. It also stimulates collagen production and minimizes the appearance of premature aging! I don’t think I need to be using a cream that reverses the effects of aging however, I am definitely happy to try a cream that just slows that process down all together. I don’t think it is ever too early to start protecting your skin from aging damage. I just bought a new face cream so I may not use this one for a while but I will absolutely use it when I finish my current moisturizer!

Verdict: I think From the Lab is such a great concept for a beauty box. They eliminate all of the time and cost that is wasted waiting for new products to come out into the consumer public. Here you are just paying for a high-quality product and that is it. I also really like that the products are full size and can be used for 30 days (my eye primer is going to last me longer than that!) I love trying new products even before they hit the market so this box is right up my alley and I know I’d be spending way more money if I was to buy these products in a store!

Free Beauty Balance Skin Test Kit

This is an interesting offer. Beauty balance has developed a virtual tester for typing skin. They claim that our skin is always changing and that in order to know what products to treat it with, we need to know what it needs! Here’s what they have to say:

“BeautyBalance is the most accurate virtual system for typing skin. It uses CuDerm’s patented skin testers to provide instant online analysis. Four times a year we will mail you a new skin tester kit, along with other assorted goodies from our sponsors, to track your skin changes and needs.”

Currently, they are offering free starter kits to anyone who is interested. I’m going to give this sample a try just out of curiosity. I would love to know if my skin is changing and if it is how quickly. It would definitely be interesting to see :)
