Petit Vour - Vegan & Cruelty Free sub

Recommended Posts

Just just sent me a box to review.  It should be here in a few days.  I will post a picture when it arrives.

Here's what in the initial box that was just sent out, and not to be deceived, the value was much higher than the usual box will be. The customer service was honest and admitted it, so that's nice! 

 

Hi there,
 
We actually just shipped our first box and plan to upload photos of it as soon as all of our members have received theirs. We just wanted it to be a surprise (: Our first box was especially fantastic and had a retail value of over $50. Typically, our boxes will have a retail value between $20-30. In the May box, we featured a deluxe-size argan oil shampoo + conditioner by Acure, a sample tube of Tsi-la perfume, a full-size Misa 3-free nail lacquer, a 10-day Skin Treatment gift certificate by Odacite and a Go Raw food bar. We hope you join Petit Vour! Our June box is going to be fabulous.
 
Xx,
 
Petit Vour Team

I just did a review on this box, and I was very impressed with it.

 

The gift cert is worth $29 according to the Odacite Organic site, so I am excited to try it out. The polish is AWESOME! And I am kinda hard to impress with polish as I prefer the glitters, sands, holos, etc -- but the coverage is absolutely fantastic and it has such a pretty shimmer to it. Here is a pic of the whole box, plus the polish swatched

The 10-day Skin Treatment gift certificate by Odacite was given to the first 100 subscribers only....

The first box was way better. I got my box today and I feel ripped off.

The only things I'll use are the granola bar and the perfume sample. I don't have wrinkles *so they don't pay much attention to the profile they have you fill out* and I got a "free" gift certificate that I still have to pay shipping for. Sigh. I was hoping so badly to like this one, but I don't like it at all.

400 Here's my June box - I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels ripped off. I just ate he food bar and the only other item I will use is the perfume sample, which I might not like. Why do they have to give gift certificates?! What a waste. I'm going to cancel - I cannot gamble away another month.

That's $15?!
Yeah... The customer rep told me the box value is $60+! She must have forgotten a decimal point. I think it's more like 60 cents.

I know. I hate gift certificates! And I feel really bad because I got a couple of my friends to sign up after showing them pics from last month. I don't know where they got $60 from. For me personally the total value of the box is about $3.50, because I'm not using the anti aging products because I'm 18! What kinda makes me mad is that they are totally dismissing the anti aging stuff by calling it preventative. I'm not going to rub a treatment cream for emotion lines on my face as a preventative treatment. I cancelled right away sadly. I was so looking forward to this box, but I guess my judgement was wrong on this one.

Xfoliator - $0.75

Eye Complex - $8.26

Anti-Wrinkle Complex -??

Perfume sample - $1.23

Barre Cinnamon Pecan bar - $2.50

 

So, barring the anti wrinkle cream and the GC, the box value is $12.74 which is very low. I posted a message on their FB page and they told me that even if we leave the GC out, the box value is about $45 - I guess the bulk of the box value lies in the anti wrinkle cream; this doesn't even make any business sense because not all their box subscribers would want so much money put in an anti wrinkle cream. I'm sure they'll see lots of unsubscribers and unhappy customers this month!

Yeah same here. If the gift certificate would have included shipping I would have been fine, because then the box would have at least been worth it.

hey, look what they posted on the facebook page!

 

Hi PV friends! We're happy to announce that the full value of your shipping costs associated with the gift certificate will be added to your PV account in the form of PV Points. For some of you this means your next box will be FREE (for prepaid accounts, a Petit Vour is added onto your subscription), because you've reached 1500 points! We will also make sure that shipping costs are included in any gift certificates in the future.

 

I thought that was a good solution for this company. Mistakes/missteps are bound to happen with new boxes and good resolutions work for me.

I'm glad that they fixed it, however since I already cancelled it isn't that great for me. At least they are learning.

    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.   
    • Something amazing for No Buy - Project Pan - Project Use It Up followers - I was reading the comments section of a Hannah Louise Poston video (Lots of Empties, published 1/21/2020) and I heard about a beauty shop called Credo that has a special recycling bin for cosmetics. Apparently if you bring your empties in for them to recycle, they give you rewards points for new things. And you can bring in any empties, not just things from their shop, although they don't take nail polish, nail polish remover, or perfume. Wow, I love that. What an inspiration for us to stay with our projects. There is no Credo store near me though. They are only in the major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., but maybe they will expand. Maybe they will find a way to let us mail in our empties? Or maybe I will take a trip someday, if I am good on my No Buy for a long time ... I could get my eyebrows done at their store too. Who knows. They do have an online shop also and they give three samples with orders. They have beautiful things. I think I will sign up with their site and start saving my empties up (instead of putting them in my neighborhood recycling); this may a coming trend! It's inspiring.  I always read the comments sections of No Buy videos on YouTube. I always find great tips and inspiration.
    • Hi, lottie. How would you be able to dry brushes that fast? Mine take a day to dry
