Votre Vu {Review & Giveaway} Superior Skin Care

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

With Mother's Day right around the corner, there isn't a better time to think about a little relaxation and pampering for all of the moms out there. No matter if you stay at home, work at home, work outside of the home or have kids that are all grown up, we all deserve at least one day of putting our feet up and having someone else do all the work (we actually deserve much more than just one day, but that's a whole separate issue).

And when it comes to treating our skin with the best possible products out there, there's no need to look any further than the top of the line collection available at Votre Vu.


French-made and containing only the finest natural ingredients available, Votre Vu products are hand-crafted with a large proportion of power ingredients within in each formula. In comparison to many skin care products that are comprised of primarily fillers, Votre Vu's higher percentages ensure that they are only produce superior products that give superior results!

With a large collection of amazing products, I like that Votre Vu has something for every age and skin type. Sensitive skin? Troubled skin? Mature skin? There is something formulated just for you. With my normal to oily skin, I was able to try a great 3-step combination to help me cleanse, tone and and balance consisting of the CALM, COOL, AND COLLECTED Calming Cotton Masque Pour Le Visage, the PEAU ÉQUILIBRÉE Tonic for Oily Skin and the PEAU ÉQUILIBRÉE Crème de 24/7 Oily Skin.

Step 1: Using the 3 C's Cotton Masque for Calming Skin, I smoothed a layer on my face and let it sit for 15 minutes while I enjoyed the sweet, flowery scent. The Masque felt smooth and soft on my skin, not rough or drying like others that I've tried.

Step 2: I felt a little odd spraying myself in the face with the Balanced Skin Toner, but liked knowing that it was balancing and purifying my skin. Step 3: I applied a light layer of the Balanced Skin Crème and was amazed to find that my skin felt clean and clear without being stripped of all moisture. It was like a mini trip to the spa all in the comfort of my own home.

So as not to leave out the rest of my skin, I also tried the Tarte D'Amande Hand Crème, one half of Votre Vu's DUETTE LUXE LIP BALM & HAND CRÈME (an innovative double-bottle that contains both a hand cream and a lip balm). This lotion is luxuriously thick and the strong smell of coconut stays with you long after you have massaged it in. I really liked the way it absorbed into my skin but didn't leave my hands feeling greasy or sticky but instead left them fully hydrated with a soft glow.

After having tried Votre Vu's products, I can see why everyone loves them! Their high quality combined with the fact that they do not test any of their products on animals has made a big fan. To find out more, as well as to read up on some great articles on beauty, fashion and health, visit Beauty Bambina. Plus, you can find information on where to go to order Votre Vu items online or by calling 866-52-ORDER to speak to a consultant.

Also, thanks to the generosity of Beauty Bambina, one person will no longer lose their lip balm or forget to carry their hand cream, because...

One lucky person will win a DUETTE LUXE LIP BALM & HAND CRÈME! ARV $38!

(See the unique top? Open the first lid and there is a mirror, open the second to find the lip balm and then behind the third is the hand crème. How cool is that?)

To enter to win: Visit Votre Vu, browse their wonderful selection of products and tell me which one(s) you would like to own.
