Last week I enjoyed a cup of coffee with a client turned friend who shared with me why she loves using Votre Vu. During her post college years, she spent some time living abroad in France and learned that when it comes to skin care, there’s a vast difference. The French, she explained, love spending time in their personal spa bathroom pampering themselves. It’s not a chore, but a necessary indulgence. It’s all about the senses and treating yourself well. Every time she opens one of her Votre Vu jars, she feels pampered and special. The aromas return her to those wonderful day abroad and results have improved the quality and texture of her skin.
Bliss in a bottle
Her story reminded me of a post from Beauty Blogger Sarah Klassen that I wanted to share with you. Sarah resides in Canada and writes about her findings, ideas and thoughts all based around design. Awhile back she sampled some products and wrote the following article:
A French Women’s Secret (Part Two)
Part of the beauty and allure of French women (besides their scent, previous post here) is their enviable complexion. They firmly believe in taking good care of one’s skin and aging well. From their early teens, they religiously care for their skin at home and practice good skin care habits—washing their face every night, using a gentle cleanser, toner and moisturizer morning and evening, as well as giving their skin weekly masks. Many women believe that once you turn forty, you must start intensive skin care treatments, but this is actually the opposite of what is true. Beautiful skin begins in the formative years.
If you’ll also notice, the French use far less makeup. They believe in celebrating one’s features and natural complexion. Makeup compliments, never covers.
For years, I have been searching for a skincare line that not only smells lovely, but feels great— something that would make the difference for my skin. After trying several brands, from simple skin care, to organics, to high-profiled boutique and department store lines, I felt there was nothing better out there. I was both surprised and thrilled after trying Votre Vu!
Votre Vu is a lovely premier skincare line, truly crafted in France. Unlike many other lines that claim to be French-based, (read their labels) each and every Votre Vu product is made with old-world craftsmanship by true French artisans. They cater to all skin types, from very dry to sensitive to mature skin. As a person with very sensitive skin, I was so incredibly thrilled with the results! Cultivated and perfected, the products are made in small batches with premium, naturally based, naturally-potent skincare ingredients; with the very same traditions that the French have celebrated for centuries. You truly feel the difference…
Thank you Sarah for the wonderful review!
