As a professional makeup artist for the television, film and live event industry, I am sometimes gifted product to try personally and professionally. So is the case with a new line called Votre Vu and because I love all things French, especially skin and hair care products, I was more than eager to use this line.
Here is a little history on Votre Vu…for 80 years, a family of skin care artisans in France created luxurious and effective anti-aging skin care treatments. They custom blended botanically driven crèmes, toners, masques and other award-winning formulations exclusively for high-end European spas and dermatologists.
In January 2007, two American Entrepreneurs traveled to France on an endeavor to bring the best naturally based skin care to the U.S. market and beyond, but at prices lower than comparable products and Votre Vu was born! Quietly launching in September 2008 with 50 botanically infused products, including face crèmes and serums, slimming gels, a bust firming balm, shampoos and a first-of-its-kind beauty beverage.
In a very short period of time, Votre Vu has become quite the talk of the town in Hollywood! Tori Spelling, Lisa Rinna, Harry Hamlin, Marisa Tomei, James Franco, Lea Thompson, Adrien Brody and Melissa Leo are all in love with this product line.
Featured in countless television and print media, with Zink Magazine and In Touch Weekly naming the product line “The Hottest Product” for Votre Vu’s Duette, which is a dual hand crème and lip balm - genius! Hearing all the buzz, this line quickly got my attention and I couldn’t wait to use it on a few of my high profile clients.
Last month, I was invited to an exclusive launch party in Hollywood, California, which featured Votre Vu and I was able to listen and learn about all the products. The packaging mesmerized me! I have told you all before, French skin care and hair care packaging is beyond incredible, but what I really wanted to test out was the product inside that packaging!
I was generously gifted shampoo, conditioner, hair serum, protective hair mist, body oil, eye balm, wrinkle eraser and lip balm to try. I have been using this product exclusively for over a month on my clients and myself and the results are amazing!
It is this Pro's professional opinion that Votre Vu’s shampoo and conditioner for color treated hair has prolonged my visit to my stylist. I am prone to grey hair so I visit my salon regularly (every 6 weeks) for cut and color, but I am now on week 8 without exposed roots or grey hair popping up! Hello!!! Can you say “big savings!” I don’t know about you all, but my bill from my stylist is around $200, so if Votre Vu can save me a little cash during the year, then I will be their biggest cheerleader!
Using both the Hair Strengthening Serum and Protective Hair Mist has helped to protect my client’s hair from damage from the sun, blow drying, hot rollers, curling and flat irons and from over processed coloring! It repairs the cuticle layer and improves manageability. Helps detangle and leaves hair looking healthy, not greasy!
I love the Mal-Ligne Wrinkle Eraser and so do my clients. After a long travel day, one of my clients had to look flawless for an important photo shoot. Her skin was dehydrated, tired and needed a boost – pronto!
Votre Vu’s Wrinkle Eraser soaked into the delicate skin around her eye area and orbital bone. Within minutes I was able to see a radiance return and her eye area looked brighter. Smoothing the fine lines and wrinkles, helped improve not only her skin’s texture, it gave her instant energy because she was beyond convinced that these pictures were going to need to be over photo shopped!
I also have several clients who have mature skin (including myself) and using the Luxee Yeux Eye Beauty Balm has made a huge difference! Moisture loss and collagen breakdowns are now a thing of the past. I am enjoying the results personally and professionally, this product helps to smooth the eye area and aides with the application, blendability and prolonged wear of concealer.
That same client I mentioned earlier in this post also needed help with her lips! Because she was dehydrated from red-eye airplane travel, her lips were chapped and flaky (my worst nightmare)! Votre Vu’s Champagne Kisses Lip Balm came to the rescue and re-moisturized her lips and prepped them perfectly for lipstick! The best part is that this product has little to no smell or taste, which means my client didn’t feel the need to lick or bite her lips and that makes my job easier – less touch ups!
The piece de resistance is Votre Vu’s Amour D’Ore, which is a multivitamin oil for face, body and hair! This product is incredible! I use this product straight from the shower on semi-damp skin, taking the place of body lotion. It absorbs quickly and helps to repair, nourish and protect skin and hair! Used at a recent television shoot, my male client’s elbows were ashy from dryness! This product immediately solved that problem and gave his skin a gorgeous, healthy glow!
Also, I discovered that Votre Vu products are only sold online and through independent sales representatives, which means that if you are interested in earning some extra money or if you are looking for a career change, Votre Vu may be a great opportunity for you. Purchasing products from the Internet usually means a big savings for the consumer because the “middle men” are cut out of the dollar equation and the manufacturer passes the savings on to the consumer!
Since there is such a large demand for high quality product and because the market is saturated with low to medium grade, mass produced skin and hair care product lines, Votre Vu is a great alternative and a welcomed substitute for the American consumer!

Another fun way to introduce you to the Votre Vu line is to attend a party at the VuBar! VuBar is a tricked-out mobile skin treatment bar offering samples and treatments free! “We’re going to take the VuBar across the country, allowing people to connect with our lovemark brand,” said CEO and founder Harold Zimmerman. Check Votre Vu’s website for more information and a schedule of VuBar locations!
