PetiteThrela etsy review

Petite Threla is the smaller sister-site/etsy shop to Threla (their main webpage). I came across their shop on etsy while searching for a lip tint. I've outgrown lipgloss (and why in the world are they SO shiny? Which reminds me of this video at 1:19- 1:31) and most lipstick shades look terrible on me so I'm trying out lip tints instead. I'm a lip balm addict anyway so this seems like a good in-between. :)

I ordered the Threla lip glace in Earl Grey - I love tea and citrus and lip balm so could this get any better? As well as a bar of soap in Bartlett pear. I was sent a "conversation" (etsy's version of a direct message) right away, thanking me for my order and letting me know I was getting a free lip glace with my order! So generous! And though we are on opposite sides of the country I got my order in just two days. Incredible. And shipping was only $1.75 for my entire order.

It was nicely yet simply packaged:

And included an invoice and a handwritten thank you.

I could smell the Earl Grey before I even opened the package and it smells divine.

The free lip glace they sent me is their pink grapefruit flavor/color so it is in my skin tone range to wear. It smells juicy and looks beautiful with just a kiss of color.

The Earl Grey lip glace, as I mentioned, smells really good, but it's not an overpowering scent. The color is the absolute perfect color for me and I couldn't be more thrilled with it. I will definitely be ordering this again. And at only $4.00 per tube I can afford to.

The lip tubes also have a safety seal, which I appreciate.

The soap I ordered is a smaller bar, but perfectly sized and reasonably priced at $3.50. The fragrance is not the sort of knock-you-down fragrance you'd get in a store-bought bar. It is light, sweet, and juicy yet noticeable and lingers on the skin for a while. It has a nice, rich lather and makes the skin soft too.

My next order I'd love to try their face masks and facial mist.

It's nice to find generous shop keeps that take the time to do something a bit personal... and now... your lips will have only "a bit o shine" Sorry I couldn't resist! Anyway... I've never worn lip gloss (it always looked a bit gross to me) and lipstick is just often too heavy. I try to use a light one with a good sunscreen... I'll have to try tint. Thanks!

I saw on Threla website that they have a body mist with Vanilla-Pandan scent. PANDAN?!!..that really impresses me. One doesn't see too many Pandan scented beauty products out there - I'm sold. Thanks for this I'm more convinced that this is a good vendor.
