It’s no surprise that I love beauty and personal products made with more natural ingredients. One of my favorite destinations for goods and brands that I trust is Petit Vour. I’ve been a partner with them for a while now and realized I never made a list of my must-haves. All of the products listed below are ones that I’ve tried and loved and have passed the Sage Glow test. I wouldn’t steer you wrong, you know?
Alima Pure Satin Matte Foundation:: I’ve been using this foundation for years because when I was first overhauling my makeup bag they had the largest shade selection. Like seriously - their range of colors is unreal. I brush on Warm 5 for medium coverage but you can also mix it with a bit of serum to make a liquid foundation/concealer.
Au Naturale Color Theory Creme Corrector:: This concealer concept is so smart. I got Flax in a past Beauty Box and it perfectly covered acne (both scars and current flare-ups) and under-eye darkness.
Pacifica Stellar Gaze Length & Strength Mineral Mascara:: Great mascara with a perfect brush size that doesn’t make a mess all over your eyelids.
Axiology Lip Crayon:: I like the texture of this lip color - not too matte, not too shiny. I have Enduring and it’s a nice, layerable wine color.
Lauren B. Beauty Reparative Cuticle Oil Treatment:: A good nightstand staple, this cuticle oil has a mess-free applicator so you can easily slather it on before bed. I love using this to make a no-chip mani last even longer.
Juice Beauty BLEMISH CLEARING™ Serum:: My skin gets congested easily, so I gave this a try. So far so good. This goes on after cleansing and toning both in the morning and evening and I feel like it’s made a difference in current clogs and with old cystic acne scars too.
May Lindstrom Skin The Problem Solver:: Ok, ok. This is a splurge. It lasts a long time because it’s just the powder blend, but it’s a bit of an investment (I’ve only had one jar in my lifetime). However, if you can swing it, this mask is heaven. You’ll want to eat it but don’t waste it - put it on your face for serious detoxification and your skin will be softer and clearer than it’s ever been.
May Lindstrom Skin Facial Treatment Brush:: I actually received this brush as a gift with purchase at a green beauty event in Chicago years ago. It’s held up well so I thought I’d share that it’s a nice little treat to apply your facial mask.
Blissoma Refine Clay Renewal Treatment:: A pre-mixed mask with a Rhassoul clay base (and celery juice!), this is a good option for a more affordable mask that still gives great results. The texture is
MOA The Green Fairy Hand & Lip Balm:: This all-purpose balm has ingredients like shea butter, cocoa butter, lemon peel and absinthe extract. How French chic is that? Oh and it has a little mint, anise and stevia to keep your lips kiss ready. I carry it in my purse and use it All. The. Time.
Terra & Co. Brilliant Black Oil Pulling:: Makes oil pulling so easy and I feel like my mouth is just overall fresher and cleaner. If you don’t know about oil pulling, it’s an ancient Ayurvedic practice to swish oil around in your mouth first thing in the morning and then spit it out. Benefits include drawing out toxins, freshening your breath and reducing inflammation and bacteria.
Terra & Co. Brilliant Black Toothpaste:: Charcoal toothpaste is so fun for frightening your husband. Ok seriously, I like this for keeping my teeth healthy and white. Just note, it’s not going to foam up like toothpaste you’re used to.
Terra & Co. Brilliant Black Dental Floss:: I love this floss. It lasts forever, doesn’t shed or break and doesn’t have any weird flavors. Just a subtle hint of peppermint and spearmint essential oils.
Meow Meow Tweet Grapefruit Baking Soda Free Deodorant Stick:: I have sensitive skin and this baking-soda free formula keeps the stink and irritation away. The grapefruit scent is light and the packaging is biodegradable for extra bonus points.
Mai Couture Bamboo Charcoal Blotting Paper:: These blotting papers are great. I keep them in my purse for touch-ups on the go. They properly absorb oil without disrupting my makeup. But hurry - they’re on final sale!
Monthly Beauty Box:: If you’d like Christmas every month, I highly recommend the Petit Vour Beauty Box. Box values are always generous (at least $50) but cost $18/month or $15/month if you buy the full year. It’s a fun treat and I’ve appreciated discovering new brands and getting stocked up on necessities. Oh and some products come in sample sizes so they’re perfect for traveling too.
Let me know if you have any questions on these picks. And keep checking back here before you do some shopping as I’ll continue to add to this list.
