Marked at a whopping $39, I could swear to it that Votre Vu Duette Luxe Lip Balm and Hand Creme is thee most expensive hand cream my hands have ever seen! I actually spend $18 on Lush Smitten and dude, even that’s expensive to me. I guess I’m of the mentality that any hand cream will do and I’d rather dish out alot on skincare for my face rather than my hands…..
Votre Vu Duette Luxe Lip Balm and Hand Creme could change my mind though.
Votre Vu Duette Luxe Lip Balm and Hand Creme is a duo system that contains a lip balm and a hand cream in one package! Squeeze the tube to enjoy a gorgeous hand cream and flip the top of the hand cream’s lid to reveal a super emollient lip balm.
This is a rather nice little duo to keep on your end table for nightly use as you can smear a bit of the balm and some of the hand cream prior to sleep.
The lip balm is made from coconut oil, shea butter, and beeswax creating a soft formula with a delicious flavor of coconut. The formula also contains UV filters to added protection. The balm is super soft and feels extra emollient on lips. In my opinion, it’s a tad rich for day time use but makes a perfect night time treatment to get lips super smooth and soft when you wake up in the AM. It’s rather tasty so you may have to refrain from licking it off like a dessert. The balm is housed in the lid of the hand cream so you slipping flip up the top lid to reveal the balm.
The cream is indeed as luxe as its name and smells like a beautiful almond, coconut cake of some sort. Yes, I was tempted to lick my hands after application. It absorbs easily and has a slightly silicone texture that’s very pleasant, soft, and soothing on my hands making them extra soft and hydrated. The cream is so incredibly moisturizing and luscious I felt it was a waste to simply use on my hands so I dabbed a small amount on my elbows and knees too! Might as well experience all that gorgeousness all over my body! Like the balm it to contains UVA/UVB protection to main your skin tone and help protect your hands keeping them soft and young!
At $39 this is a real indulgence that some might find a little too expensive to partake of.
- Anyone obsessed with keeping their hands hydrated and in tip top shape!
- Anyone who likes dessert scented hand creams, lotions, or potions.
- Anyone who wants younger, smoother, softer hands!
- Anyone unwilling to dish out almost $40 for hand cream!
- Anyone sensitive to smell or fragrance (this smells like a big old dessert, delicious yes, but could prove too much for those sensitive to smell and fragrances in product)
Although I’m one for over indulging in things I like, I probably wouldn’t purchase this again because the price is a little too high for me to indulge. If it was a facial moisturizer or an eye cream, I can easily get on board paying a larger sum however hand cream is simply not something I want to pay $40 for. I already feel a little guilty splurging on $18 hand cream so I really think I’d feel uncomfortable indulging in $40 hand cream, heck that’s almost the cost of my eye cream….
Very nice, very luxurious, but maybe a little too luxe in terms of price.
If you have money to dish out, I’d buy this, it’s really incredible however if you’re like me and wanting to dish out on something for your face, this may be a little too much to indulge.
