Le Metier De Beaute Beauty Vault VIP - Spoilers

Recommended Posts

Just announced Le Metier De Beaute is joining beauty box sub ranks in August. I am so tempted to try this one out because I absolutely adore every Le Metier product that I own, but you have to sub for the whole year up front. I wish I could at least try one month before making the year long commitment. Link is below if anyone is interested. Oh what to do, what to do http://www.lemetierdebeaute.com/collections/shop-the-vault/products/beauty-vault-vip

Same, I really wish I could try out one or two months, but I'm definitely not signing up for a year like that.

I'm so torn!! Part of me wants to wait and see what the first month or two will be like.. And then the other part of me keeps thinking that first month or two will be AMAZING!! I am seriously considering dropping Glossybox and my 2nd Ipsy for this. Ughhh i need help!!

Interesting. I might just go for it. My sub for popsugar is ending soon and this is somewhat cheaper. I'm going to ask if they have something like a 3 month membership instead.

I just spent the last 15 minutes talking myself out of this one lol. I've never tried anything by Le Metier De Beaute and I've heard great things about them so this would've been a perfect opportunity. But like some of you mentioned a full year subscription up front is a big commitment. Add that to the fact that I already have a skincare regimen that I like and works for me, I'm really not interested in receiving anything from their skincare line. At $29 a month there has to be a mascara somewhere along the line which would be a waste since I can only use fiber formulations.

 

There. Don't need it. I'll keep telling myself that...eusa_wall.gif

There is a complementary gift for signing up, too. 

 

I don't see any indication that they have a quiz or any other way of matching my skin type or, more important to me, the colors I like.  Still, it is tempting.

On their Facebook it does say some customization will be included (skin type,, color etc) and everything will be full size products, no sample or deluxe sample sizes. Considering the cost of their products and it breaks down to $29 a month I am trying so hard to resist but I am thinking I need to sub to this.

I'm leaning in that direction as well.  I recently bought my first Le Metier products, and I really like them.  But so expensive!  If I do, it will be my early birthday (October) present to myself.

Says you will get ONE full size product or an assortment of products. I think I will pass on this one

Yes, but the majority of their products cost more than the subscription price.  That's what is tempting me.

One full size would cost at minimum $50; I am with you. Trying so hard to avoid.....

I think that to decide if the line is even for you, they need to list the ingredients on their website (i could not find them).

 

But I saw Nordstrom does list all the ingredients.

Some of them seem great and some horrible - like silicone in a face toner??

 

Here is the link to Nordstrom:

Ingredients:

 

 

Ingredients

Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Dimethicone Peg-8 Meadowfomate, Butylene Glycol, Gynostema Penthaphyllum Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Geranium Maculatum Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Gingko Biloba Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Peg-25 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Peg-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Fragrance (Parfum), Allantoin, Sodium Pca, 1,2 Hexandiol, Caprylyl Glycol, Citric Acid, Disodium Edta, Benzophenone-4, Phenoxyethanol, Ext. Violet 2 (Ci 60730).

 

 

*I know for myself I like things with less ingredients.

 

But I have never tried this line. So maybe it is really good? or maybe just very expensive?

But it seems that spending $350 is around the price of just 2 skincare items in their line.....so maybe it is a good deal for some people?

Dimethicone PEG-8 Meadowfoamate is a partial ester of PEG-8 Dimethicone (q.v.) and the fatty acids derived from meadowfoam seed oil.  It is a skin and hair conditioning agent, and ranks low as an overall hazard on EWG's Skin Deep cosmetic database.  GoodGuide also says it's raises no health concerns as it has not been detected in human tissue or urine and is not on any list of toxic chemicals that cause suspected or recognized health effects.  It seems to be used more in hair products, and tensile testing has shown it strengthens wet hair by 27%. 

 

So, it doesn't sound like a bad thing to me.  I have not tried any of Le Metier's skin care products, as their price sends me into shock.

I had tried a few samples and wasn't impressed at all. Everything is ridiculously heavily perfumed and silicone left and right. I have skincare items a fraction of the price with ingredients far better for my skin. I rank this stuff along the lines of la mer and the like - heavily priced and heavily marketed as 'luxury' skincare without any real science behind it.

I'd rather have unscented things on my face.

 

For a line that has quite a lot of science behind it Neostrata is great. In the US it is not the same items as in Canada.

They have a vitamin C cream that is all airtight- it comes in these capsules you twist open. (and has 10% vitamin C).

It is not the fanciest looking line, but works well!

I love Neostrata! I used to work for Elizabeth Arden and the Neostrata counter was right next to mine - I was allllways sneaking over there to sample when we were slow, hah.

They actually have counters?

In Canada it is considered a "drugstore" and over the counter line. Like the drugstore chain I shop at also sells Prevage on the shelf in the premium section.

But if you go to any cheaper chains- Walmart, grocery stores I have never seen Neostrata there.

I used to email Neostrata every year or two to see if they have any samples and usually they are very good at sending them out.

Very tempted to try as they have a ton of new products this year and I always but the same items.

 

I also know Neostrata makes a line called Exuviance and I bought their skin peel kit- it works well...when I remember to use it that is!

Which drugstore stocks Neostrata? I pop across the border regularly and would like to pick some up.

Yep! It was in a department store called Boscov's - they stocked the Exuviance stuff mostly. Drugstores in the US are soooo lame compared to the Canadian drugstores I've heard about! Prevage/Arden and other prestige brands are only at department stores and places like Sephora or Ulta.

Here Shoppers Drugmart is the large chain of drugstores and some near me even sell fresh fruits and vegetables, cheeses.

There is even a organic store brand line of food called Nativa and I buy a lot of it.

There are a lot of good sales if you look at the flyer every week.
