I received a complimentary tube of Votre Vu Duette Luxe to review. This product is made in France, but manufactured Spring Grove, IL. I have to say that it is very nice. It would be a great gift idea or a great way to pamper yourself. It comes in a pretty nifty tube, as seen in the photo to the left. It is a two-in-one product. The top portion opens and holds the lip balm, which works effectively on dry chapped lips. It’s called Luxe Lips and feels soft and silky when I applied it to my lips. There is no applicator so your fingertip or an extra lip brush will have to do. At the bottom half of this “Duette” tube from Votre Vu is Almond Pie hand creme. It does smell like almond and it does leave your skin feeling smooth. However, there is a degree of greasiness until it wears off, as is the case for the majority of hand creams on the market. I even applied it to my dry cracked elbows and it has cleared that problem up nicely, but only as it is reapplied every day or two.
What makes this product unique is its Duette feature. I don’t know about you, but this is the first time I have seen lip balm and hand cream combined in separate packaging in the same tube. The tube wouldn’t fit in a very small purses, but is definitely still very portable. It is on the pricier side at $38.00 a tube. Their website has a listing for a 3-pack for $79.00.
