The December Le Metier de Beaute VIP Subscription Box just blew me out of the water. December was curated with Chelsea Tresidder aka Chelseasmakeup. For $348 you get 12 months with either a full sized item or assortment of items. You pay $29 a month. This is the first time I’ve tried this subscription box. It runs from September until August. The September box was great, the October and November were kind of blah for me. I opened December to see a full size Revitalizing Anti-Aging Day Creme. This cream retails for $285. This was an amazing box this month. Details per Neiman Marcus:
- Retinol (.05%): an anti-aging powerhouse known to smooth and plump wrinkles, encourage collagen revitalization, and bring elasticity back to skin.
- SNAP 8 (.005%): an anti-aging, power-peptide that reduces the depth of wrinkles on the face caused by expression muscles, specifically in forehead and eye-areas.
- Coenzyme Q10 (.05%): proven anti-aging active reduces depth of age-related wrinkles and protects against photo-aging.
- L-Carnosine (.1%): aids in the loss of keratin degradation, which causes rough, dry skin
Revitalizing Anti-Aging Day Creme has been specifically calibrated to work during daytime hours to optimize repairative & preventative processes. Including anti-aging powerhouses Retinol and Coenzyme Q10, this innovative creme helps improve the appearance of lines, wrinkles, firmness and uneven skin tone.
This comes in a sleek jar. It’s only one ounce for $285. That’s pricey. Not something I would normally buy so I’m ecstatic to try it from this box. It was a great December gift. Sometimes the December box from a subscription service is amazing–like a Christmas gift, it makes up for other blah boxes during the year.
The scent is minimal, it’s very pleasant and light. Almost undetectable. The texture is light yet hydrating and never greasy or heavy which is perfect for day. This absorbs quickly and leaves my skin glowing with hydration. I’m excited to give it a full test.
