Votre Vu’s Champagne Kisses Enhancing Lip Balm $29.00 .12 oz. doesn’t look or smell like the champagne bubbly, but it is as pricey as the real thing, and might make your lips, sexier when you’re sipping it. The clear, non-greasy, moistly-matte lip balm arrives in a simple, brushed silver tube with clear cap over the clear balm. The balm has soothing, nourishing and healing ingredients like sweet almond oil, coconut oil and shea butter. Even on dry, cracked, chapped, lips, this balm felt pampering. The product information says that the balm also has a “delicious natural flavor,” and I admit to having a stuffy nose the day I reviewed this, but I didn’t smell or taste flavor. That’s not a bad thing, anyway, as it’s not always in your best interests to smell and taste fruits or nuts or spices or whatever. In any case, the balm is very moisturizing and pleasant to use. The product information also said that the balm would help keep lipstick from feathering in those annoying, tiny lines. That, it did, at least to some degree. The “volumizing” as suggested by the product info, was also minimal compared to other volumizers, but the product didn’t sting or burn, either. What I really like most about this lip balm (and I’d pay the premium for it) was the “balm” part–soothing, healing, luxurious. Another thing I like about Votre Vu is that they have a list of all the ingredients if you wish to see what you’re putting on (or in) your body.
On the other end of our body, we tend to pay more attention to our hard-working feet in the Summertime, when we’re baring them in sandals and strappy shoes, or maybe even going barefoot, but your feet can get dry, cracked and even painfully ignored in the Winter, too. Votre Vu Tres Magni-Feet Magnificent Energizing Crème for the Feet $29.00 1.69 fl. oz. does an amazingly good (and instant) job of smoothing, soothing, and dealing with dry, flaky, cracked skin on your “les pieds” ( that’s “feet” ). The box says: “don’t skip this step!” and they aren’t kidding: a “crème bouquet of bright green verbena leaves, arnica and chamomile” makes feet smell good, and the silky cream is blended with nourishing, hydrating and healing shea butter and pure menthol (that gives it just a bit of a tingle) for its mild analgesic benefits, this daily crème massage treatment will restore and invigorate your feet. When you pull off the heavy socks and boots at night, or before you put on stockings or socks in the morning, smooth on some Tres Magni Feet and you will soon find that your socks and stockings don’t “stick” on those icky, tiny bits of dried skin (you know you have them) and your feet feel smoother, softer, and all-around nicer! Even better, the cream absorbs quickly so you won’t slip or deal with grease spots. You may find cheaper products that smooth your feet, but you probably won’t find many that are nicer than this one.
I have liked the Votre Vu products I’ve tried today, and in the past. They are innovative and for the most part, worth a little bit extra. Votre Vu is sold online at the Votre Vu web site and also through “Brand Ambassadors.” If you are good at marketing (yourself, and products) you might also consider reading how you can become a “Brand Ambassador” and potentially make money selling Votre Vu, too.
