I'm so excited to share with everyone the clean, vegan, cruelty-free subscription beauty box by a new company, @freebunni! ๐Ÿฅฐ This box was courtesy of Free Bunni, and I have not been paid for a review. 
That being said, I really, REALLY love this incredible box. 
Free Bunni is a quarterly subscription that will send you full sized products ($130 value) for $70. Before anyone hesitates, let's do the math:

4 boxes x $70/box is $280/year (or $17.50/mo). If you're paying an average of $25 every month for other boxes, that's $300/year. Right there you're saving money.

You also get 20 full size vegan products/year compared to a few handfuls of minis. ๐Ÿ’ธ

Finally, my review! Here is my full nightly face routine for the past 2 months: *Companies tagged*

Green Tea & Camellia Facial Cleanser: I've been using this cleanser nightly and it's like nothing I've ever tried. It gets super bubbly and fizzy and smells fresh. It's a really unique cleanser that helps take off my makeup every night. It kind of tickles actually and is fun to use. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Flower Water Toner: Next step is this toner. I'm absolutely obsessed with toners (hyperpigmentation) and this is by far THE BEST one I've ever tried. ๐Ÿ˜ญ Definitely my favorite box product. The difference in redness of my skin makes me feel good about myself.  It helps take off leftover makeup too. I also apply before makeup.

Physical Attraction Serum: I use this sparingly since hydration isn't big concern. ๐Ÿ’ฆ The colder months are drying out my cheek areas (no clue why) but this helps revitalize my skin.

Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream: This is such a neat product. I use this every night under my eyes to reduce puffiness. ๐Ÿ‘€ It helps with dark circles too, though that's not a concern for me. It smells incredible! โ˜•

Lavender Lemon Lotion: I use this everyday because my hands get really dry. ๐Ÿ‘ It's creamy and thick and soaks in beautifully. I usually don't use it for my face, but I will in place of the serum if I'm in the mood.

Do I recommend: YES! โœ…

Thank you SO MUCH to @freebunni for this opportunity. I've been using these on a daily/nightly basis the past 2 months and my skin makes me feel  so  beautiful.๐Ÿ‡ #mindovermango #gifted

I'm so excited to share...

I can say that I have tried quite a few face washes and mists over the past 2.5 years. So far, Iโ€™ve pretty much enjoyed all that Iโ€™ve tried. That being said, I can say that @lather has been my longest face wash that I have used on a consistent basis. โณ I partnered with LATHER for this post to give an honest review of their products in exchange for a discounted price. ๐Ÿ‡ *Unedited photos. I am wearing mascara, brow powder, and lip stain.*
โ€ข
LATHERโ€™S products are botanically based. ๐ŸŒฟ Their cleansing milk contains oat protein and sweet almond oil that helps to condition skin, while their face mist contains algae and witch hazel extract to clean and tighten pores. Being that it is also vegan and cruelty-free, I decided that it would likely be a no-brainer to test out. ๐Ÿฐ (Shout out to @joinpalm as well for the opportunity to do so)!
โ€ข
My skin has cleared up and more importantly has stayed clear since using these products on a nightly basis. ๐ŸŒ I tried a couple of other new products this month to break up the routine and now kind of regret it. I started breaking out again around my chin, jaw line, and under my cheek bones after straying from my LATHER routine. โ€ข
I like using this face wash every night, especially because it does a great job at removing leftover makeup from the day. My routine is as follows: 1๏ธโƒฃ Remove makeup with makeup wipe. 2๏ธโƒฃ Apply face cleanser and massage on my face and across my closed eye lids + lashes. 3๏ธโƒฃ Rinse, apply additional products as needed, and finish off with spritzing my LATHER face mist all over my face and across my neck and chest for a refreshing coolness on the skin. ๐ŸŒฌ
โ€ข
Would I recommend these products and this company to a friend. YES! ๐Ÿฅฐ Absolutely. Iโ€™ve thoroughly enjoyed using these goods and look forward to my nightly routine after coming home from the day. I can only speak highly of this company and have had great experiences with their products. ๐Ÿ’˜
โ€ข
Thank you so much to @lather and @joinpalm for this wonderful chance to find new skincare products that have been working wonders on my skin! ๐Ÿ˜ธ I think Iโ€™ll continue sticking to my routine for a while. ๐Ÿ˜† #mindovermango #collab

I can say that I...

Drone shot from my holiday (as everyone outside the US seems to call it) on Sao Jorge Island in the Azores! ๐ŸŒ I shot this on my DJI Mavic 2 Pro, who right now is getting the love he needs in the DJI repair shop because I crashed my baby while away on vacation a day after this image was shot. ๐Ÿ˜ญ That being said, I'm so incredibly grateful for the amazing footage I was able to capture prior to the accident! ๐Ÿ›ฉ #fromwhereidrone #womenwhodrone #mindovermango

Drone shot from my holiday...

I went on this crazy bathing suit shopping spree right before my trip to the Azores because I hadn't bought myself a bathing suit for the past 6 years. ๐Ÿ˜ญ So if I'm doing my math correctly, 5 new bathing suits = 30 more years until I need to buy another one. ๐Ÿงฎ #mindovermango

I went on this crazy...

I couldn't decide which background to choose, so I chose all of them. ๐Ÿค— I wanted to introduce some of you to a product (and company) you probably have never heard of before. @hairshotsbyamy is a unique hair goods company who has created their own "hair perfumes" that are meant to be used to freshen up your locks when they need it. ๐Ÿ‘ง

This company states that "hair shots starts where shampoo leaves off". ๐Ÿ›€ Often times the scent of our shampoos vanishes after washes, and during our workouts, our heads naturally get sweaty (and maybe a little bit smelly too). ๐Ÿ˜ท This heat activated hair fragrance helps to #sweetenyourlocks and keeps your hair smelling fresh when you need it most. 
Amy was cool enough to send me over two of her bottles (of course I had to try a mango scent) that I was able to bring with me on my vaca to the Azores recently. ๐Ÿ›ฉ I figured with the heat and vaca activities, I might need a little refresh and I'm thankful that these cute bottles gave my hair a much needed boost. ๐Ÿ™‚

They come in all kinds of scents, so you can pick what you may like best. I need to say that the Asian Green is probably my favorite, and I highly recommend trying out this scent if you're in the market for a new type of hair product with benefits. ๐Ÿ๐Ÿฅญ Thank you Amy for letting me give your products a test run. I'm grateful and look forward to using my new hair shots again in the future! ๐Ÿ™‚ #mindovermango #hairshots

I couldn't decide which background...

I'm so excited to finally share this! Mind Over Mango has been published in @dyemag! ๐Ÿฅฐ ๐Ÿ“– I've been wanting to share for weeks but needed the hard copy to be in my hands to make it feel official. ๐Ÿ™ So much of this is in thanks to my incredible Fiancรฉ, Cassio of @cdv.creative (also known as @stacking_shit). ๐Ÿคต๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ‘ฐ Cassio helped with this project by photographing all of the content that was accepted into this issue of Dye Magazine. ๐Ÿ“š He has been very supportive of my passion for expressing myself through imagery and has taken on the role of a photographer like a champ! ๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ’ช Thank you so much to meu amor, and thank you for the publication Dye Mag!

Petit Vour:Vegan & Cruelty-Free Monthly Subscription Beauty Box

Petit Vour

The monthly subscription-based beauty box craze has been spreading like wildfire, and for good reason too. What beauty lover wouldn’t want a low-cost box filled with high-end beauty products arriving straight to their doorstep once a month? It gives us the opportunity to try new products we may not have ever discovered, often in full-sizes too. Petit Vour is not your average monthly subscription box though. They are in fact the #1 vegan, non-toxic, and cruelty-free subscription box on the market.

Disclaimer: Petit Vour reached out to me after discovering my platforms and wanted me to try out their July 2019 Beauty Box. I had first heard about Petit Vour from a quick Google search in an attempt to find beauty boxes that I could actually subscribe to, so I was delighted when I received their email. Trying out their Beauty Box has really been an amazing experience for me. As an advocate for cruelty-free beauty, partnering with Petit Vour has truly been a new and rewarding experience. That being said, I have not been paid or asked to write this review, although I have included affiliate links in this article. I want to be 100% transparent with my audience, and you will see that Petit Vour lives by the same philosophy too.

๐ŸŒฑ What is Petit Vour? ๐ŸŒฑ

Petit Vour is based around the principle that beauty (and fashion) shouldn’t hurt. They hold themselves to high standards with four pillars that represent who they are: top-shelf performance, ingredient integrity, ethical manufacturing, and exceptional aesthetic. All of the products that they sell are 100% vegan, not tested on animals, and are produced only where companies can prove they have a fair trade working environment. They also have a long list of ingredients that you will never find in any of the products they sell. Transparency is vital to upholding their high standards, and their platforms certainly show it.

For as low as $15 a month, you will receive 4 plant-based, non-toxic and cruelty-free beauty goodies right to your doorstep. You can also receive $4 worth of store credit every month for reviewing your current Beauty Box. Each box contains at least $50 worth of goods inside! To see the total value and savings of this box, check the image descriptions below.

๐Ÿ“ฆ The Goods ๐Ÿ“ฆ

Petit Vour: Terre Mere Anti-Aging Smudge Proof Eye Shadow Base
Total Box Value So Far: $36

Smudge-Proof Anti-Aging Eye Shadow Base by Terre Mere – $36: This product was the most expensive item in the Beauty Box. For a $36 value, I was really shocked but very excited. As a Beauty Consultant, it’s mandatory that I wear makeup every day to work.ย  I’ve used this eye shadow base several times now, with my shifts lasting anywhere from 5 to 9 hours. So far, I have not experienced any creasing! I’ve been pretty basic and light on the eyeshadow, so I haven’t focused so much on a wear test just yet, but I’ll be sure to update with my results soon on that note.

Petit Vour: After Hours Soothing Night Cream by Kalos
Total Box Value So Far: $47

After Hours Soothing Night Cream by Kalos – $11: I recently added this to my skincare regimen and it’s been wonderful to my skin.ย  I love that it came in a compact size, yet I find there’s enough to get me through the month. For over a year now I’ve been having this strange issue every night where my face gets red and hot. The cause is still unknown. (Side note: if anyone experiences this too, please let me know! I really am struggling with it and I haven’t uncovered the root cause yet). This soothing mask has a light, cool touch to the skin and minimizes my redness and blotchiness, and also eases the slight “discomfort” of a warm face.

Petit Vour: Lait De Rose Vitamin C Polishing Wash by French Girl Cosmetics
Total Box Value So Far: $62

Lait De Rose Vitamin C Polishing Wash by French Girlย – $15: For the price of this product alone, it covers the cost of the entire box. This is a very interesting product. Basically, it’s a powder that activates with water. Tap the amount you need into a lid or small bowl, add water, then apply. It will leave your skin supple and soft to the touch. When I first saw this, I was a little iffy if I would like it because it starts in a powder form. I’m thinking that the powder form serves multiple purposes, one of them possibly being that it has a longer shelf life, which would help you get the most out of the product!

Petit Vour: 3 Minute Mask by Ursa Major
Total Box Value So Far: $68

Bright & Easy 3-Minute Flash Mask by Ursa Major – $6: I wish I could have brought this with me on my recent trip while visiting the Azores for the first time. Its cute and compact size is perfect for travel and would have given me plenty to work with while I was away. I’ve mentioned before on my blog that my Endometriosis causes me to have breakouts from hormonal imbalances, so I was able to test out this mask during a recent acne attack and see the results. This little baby helped clear up my acne while brightening and tightening my skin. (P.S. blog articles about my trip are coming up next!)

Petit Vour: Eyeliner Pencil by Antony M
Final Box Value: $87. Total Savings: $72

Antonym Waterproof Eye Pencil – $19:ย This eyeliner pencil was an added bonus in my box. There’s not a whole lot to say except that it is really creamy and slides easily across the skin, so it will be gentle to use on your eyes without tugging. There is also a concealed sharpener on the opposite side of the pencil too, which was a great added bonus!

Peit Vour: What's In The Box Guide
Each of Petit Vour’s Beauty Boxes come with a card stating full descriptions of each product you received.

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โš–๏ธ The Verdict ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โš–๏ธ

Would I continue using this subscription-based Beauty Box in the future? YES – one thousand times yes! There are very few instances on my website where I don’t include a “who this is not for” section in my reviews. The Petit Vour July 2019 Beauty Box comes as one of those rare exceptions. I did not experience any “cons” or issues I felt would be a significant deal-breaker. That being said…

โœ… Who This Is For โœ…

This Beauty Box can and should be for everyone interested in a monthly beauty subscription. I honestly believe that more people should make a full transition to Petit Vour. Your purchases from this company help encourage and support other animal-friendly businesses who are trying to grow and spread the word about going vegan in your beauty routine. If you are interested in going cruelty-free, are already cruelty-free, or are currently purchasing monthly boxes from other companies, there’s no reason you shouldn’t consider ditching those and moving toward a safer, healthier, and more sustainable alternative.

๐Ÿ“ Final Notes ๐Ÿ“

Make sure to check out my IGTV and Instagram post to see a full unboxing. Thank you so very much to Petit Vour for such incredible service and generosity, not just to me, but also to our animals and our planet too! I know that many of us are appreciative of your commitment to servicing the welfare of animals. With your help, we are one (or two, or one hundred) steps closer to banning animal testing and introducing the world to a full cruelty-free beauty (and fashion) regimen. Thank you again for such a great partnership. Now please excuse me while I go and order my new Petit Vour subscription…

xoxo Sara

    I’m glad that this was such a good partnership! I haven’t done any beauty boxes like this before but I want to try. This sounds like a great brand and great products!

    • Mind Over Mango
      August 1, 2019

      Thank you, Carolyn! Yes, this is my first time so I’m new to it too. I’ve wanted one for so long and this one is literally perfect for me!

    Sounds like an amazing beauty box that I would love to try. Now if only they made one with vegan snacks, I’d love that too!

    • Mind Over Mango
      August 1, 2019

      Hey, Taylor! I think a vegan snack box actually does exist! I’m not sure what company it is, but I’ve heard about one before. There are only a few vegan subscription boxes and I know Petit Vour is the top box for beauty. Maybe you should look up a snack one too!

  • Candace Hampton
    August 1, 2019

    I’m obsessed with makeup subscriptions! I love the element of surprise. Plus I believe that I save a lot of money that way. Buying the products separately is more expensive. I really like the idea of a vegan beauty box. Definitely need to subscribe!

    • Mind Over Mango
      August 1, 2019

      The element of surprise is the best part! I’m not awfully picky either, so I’m always open to a variety of products. I agree that you save a lot! This box saves $72 which is a great deal. Check out Petit Vour on their website to see more! You can view their previous boxes as well.

    Such an awesome subscription box. I’ve been trying to switch over to clean products, love that this offers more products to try!

    • Mind Over Mango
      August 1, 2019

      Same, Kileen! I’m happy that the industry as a whole is starting to move toward cruelty-free and vegan products. Petit Vour is such a great option to try! You can buy a monthly box for $18 or buy a subscription and save more money (which would break down to $15 a month)!

  • Stephanie
    August 1, 2019

    Of course, as a blogger, I’ve heard about a million different subscription boxes – but this is the first time I’ve heard of this one, and now I’m fascinated! I love that they’re cruelty free and plant-based. So many great products to test out for such an awesome price. The Ursa Major mask definitely stood out to me the most!

    • Mind Over Mango
      August 1, 2019

      Hey, Stephanie! Yes, they started popping up everywhere. Petit Vour has been around since 2013 and I’m really glad that they have had so much success. I’ve seen a few try to launch and then they just flop. There’s a lot of great options and you can buy the full sizes or repurchase the same products from their website once you run out! The Ursa Mask is awesome too.

  • FitFamilyLifeBlog
    August 1, 2019

    Wait youโ€™ve got to be kidding me! Only 15?! I am hands down going to try this box!

    • Mind Over Mango
      August 1, 2019

      Yes, I know! The prices are very low and the quality goes well beyond it in my opinion. If you buy Petit Vour individually, it comes out to $18 a box, which I think is still a great price and less than other beauty boxes too. So if you want to save even more than you can buy the subscription for $180 for a full year of 12 boxes, which breaks down to $15 a month!

  • Julia Comil
    August 2, 2019

    Love the packaging and the fact it is cruelty free! Plus it is affordable so no reason to not try it!!

  • Ashley

  • Ifeoluwa Anani
    August 3, 2019

    Such a great box! I love anything with Vitamin C in it. I would love to try the Lait De Rose Vitamin C Polishing Wash by French Girl looks so good

  • Deborah
    August 5, 2019

    I’ve never heard of this subscription box but I like vegan and cruelty-free products and everything you got sound right up my alley! I would love to try that Lait de rose polishing wash. I’ve never seen a powder face wash before, how interesting!

  • Morgan Tyner
    August 7, 2019

    What?! Monthly subscription to this?! Iโ€™ve never heard of this company โ€” but I love what it stands for!! Iโ€™m definitely going to look more into it! Thanks for sharing this, Chica!
