This month's box contained six items total and had a value of over $60 (according to Petit Vour, I don't really bother to add up values for my items because it doesn't really bother me), but the complaints came from the fact that the samples were so small, and the gift certificate we got didn't include shipping. Here are my thoughts on the items:
- Mineral Hygienics Gift Certificate - I've received two of these from other boxes and I've never used them. It's good for $15 toward any item, but some people were getting upset because it didn't cover shipping costs. I already knew that from having gotten them in other boxes, and honestly I don't understand why there was such an uproar this time. The cheapest shipping option is $5.25, which to me does not seem like a big deal at all. Furthermore, this is the fault of Mineral Hygienics, not Petit Vour. I understand that people may feel that they shouldn't have to spend more money to get the item, but in that case I say, just don't use the certificate! But to each their own, I suppose. Oh and Petit Vour even went above and beyond after hearing customers' complaints and will be providing everyone with Petit Vour points to use in their shop equivalent in value to your shipping cost.
- Baudelaire Acorelle Perfume - I don't like perfume samples. Of all the boxes I've received them in, I've only ever liked one. I hope that Petit Vour doesn't include them often. The scent is described as "lotus bamboo," and I didn't love it. It's not bad, but I prefer scents that are have warmer notes than this. I did like that it was an atomizer and not just a vial with a stopper.
- (Skingen)x (Anti-Wrinkle Comple)x, (Eye Comple)x, and x(Foliator) - Petit Vour included these samples because they wanted to send us a high-end brand, which I can appreciate, but the foil packets were so small that I don't think I could ever truly judge their performance off of such a small sample size. The wrinkle cream is a much more substantial sample, but I don't have wrinkles. I know it can easily be used for preventative care, but I am currently inundated with skin creams. I'm going to offer this to a friend or family member.
- Barre Pirouette Cinnamon Pecan Bar - This was so yummy! I like bars like this because I eat them for breakfast most mornings, and this one kept me feeling full and satisfied. It had the perfect mix of cinnamon and nuts in it, and I would definitely purchase them in the future.
Bottom Line: This was not my favorite box, but as I said at the beginning of my review, I'm definitely willing to give Petit Vour more of a chance. I think they learned a lot from customer feedback this month, and their responses were amazingly kind. I wouldn't be surprised if July's box blows us all away!
