Unboxing & First Impressions: Le Métier de Beauté Beauty Vault VIP October 2013 Box

LMdB Complexion Serum

Inside Le Métier de Beauté’s Beauty Vault VIP box for October is a skincare item: the Peau Vierge Complexion Serum & Dark Spot Corrector. I wasn’t planning on using this because I just read the “dark spot corrector” part, but thank the Lord for accompanying literature.

A while back, LMdB challenged beauty lovers to use their Dark Spot Corrector for 28 days with a promise to deliver visible results. I don’t really have a problem with dark spots, but I do have some skin issues that I wanted to take care of.

“Just what your skin ordered; a complexion pick-me-up created to energize your skin. It is an all over Complexion Serum, an Anti-Aging Treatment, Skin Tone and Texture Rebuilder, and Dark Spot Repair Cream.”

I think that’s A LOT to promise, and when that happens, I tend to lower my expectations because there are things that can’t be that good. Aside from a “dark spot corrector,” this serum claims to improve skin complexion, be an anti-wrinkle and fine line treatment, rebuild/even out skin tone and texture, and correct hyperpigmentation, and it promises to deliver some results and improvements during the first week of use.

Now, this isn’t a full review. Just a very, very early impression of this product, and I don’t normally do this especially for skin care items but I used this yesterday with a light moisturizer (as prescribed), and MY SKIN FREAKING UPGRADED.

Most noticeably gone are the small spots that hang out in the triangular area under my eyes and beside my nose. I used to have tiny whitehead-like bumps there. My skin is also very noticeably smoother. And that’s just from ONE usage. I’ll do the 28-day challenge, and post updates. But so far, so freaking good. I love this serum. I’m kind of sad I can only use it every other day, to avoid dryness from the retinol.

Still, I’m pretty happy to be able to try it. The Peau Vierge Complexion Serum & Dark Spot Corrector retails for $125, and the LMdB monthly box is around $29. I think that may be the best part.

Review soon, thanks for reading! Here’s the note that came with the October box:

    • I get how it’s hard to justify the price of their cosmetics, especially a product I’ll be reviewing soon. But I usually enjoy their products; especially the eyeshadow and lip crèmes. 🙂 And the mascara! Anyway, I love this skin care item and honestly wouldn’t mind paying retail if it turns out making my skin better!

    • Quite loving it so far, but I’ve only used it 3 times (the card advised to use it only every other day to avoid drying). 🙂
