A few months ago I attended the International Women’s Expo in Novi, MI (the suburbs of Detroit) and the Votre Vu bus of beauty (also known as the VuBar) captivated my attention!!! It was an amazing sight to see tat was filled with cosmetics, skin care and makeup galore; I had to stop in my tracks, as I wanted to explore!!!
As I walked up the steps, a team of Makeup Artist were applying makeup, offering skincare tips and introducing the brand to every person who entered. They greeted me with a huge hello and welcome so, I introduced myself and they gave me a tour as well as told me about some key products and how the brand started.
Votre Vu is a French company with handcrafted products that contain naturally based skincare formulations backed by 80 years of experience. The brand believes in the French philosophy: make looking great and aging well part of your daily life!!! I don’t know about you but I am ready to get my beauty passport stamped and step into the world of Votre Vu.
The team introduced me to Duette Luxe Lip Balm and Hand Crème. I was intrigued because it’s a multifunctional product and if you don’t know by now…I love products that offer multiple functions; they make me happy because you get more bang for your buck!!! I tried the hand crème and I was very impressed because it made my hands feel like velvet. I was so excited that the CEO gifted me the product as well as a brow gel (which will reviewed in a separate post).
I have been using the dynamic duo for the past few months and here is what I liked: As I stated earlier, the Luxe Hand Crème makes my hands feel velvety smooth!!! While I am not a fan of coconut or almond…somehow, the mix of the two scents together smell pretty darn good; who knew??? LOL. The crème is very moisturizing, a little bit goes a long way and it is not sticky…FTW!!! It has UV protection and Grape seed oil so it protects the skin from the sun and all the yucky things in the environment. The best thing is the packaging!!! The Hand Crème is connected to a lip balm with a mirror… now that is just pure genius and I was amazed and amused all at once…LOL. It was packaged this way because the French feel you should moisturize your hands and lips together. Wow…I think the French are on to something…what a novel idea!!!
The Luxe Lip Balm is nice but I am not as impressed with the lip balm as I am with the hand crème. It feels good on my lips but it is not as moisturizing as some of the other lip balms that I own. It was just okay…no wow factor at all L. I may have been impressed if there were a hint of color in the lip balm…IJS.
If you don’t know by now, I totally adore the Luxe Hand Crème and the complete package!!! However, the Luxe Lip Balm is just okay and not as moisturizing as some of my other lip balms so I am going to grade the product with 3 grades. The Luxe Hand Crème gets 5 out of 5 smooches… the Luxe Lip Balm gets 3.75 out of 5 smooches and the two products together with the packaging gets 4 out of 5 smooches…MUAH!!! The packaging and hand crème is just everything to me but the lip balm…not so much. If you are interested in purchasing the dynamic duo, it cost $39 on votrevu.com.
